THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE PROGRAM FOR LOGANSPORT 1. An Adequate Civic Center 2. An Adequate Sewage Disposal Systav 3. Suffiicent Parking Facilities The Reserve Clause u A House subcommittee has now begun hearings on whether baseball and other professional sports should be made subject to federal antitrust laws. The congressmen will go into the question of baseball as a business, a sport and a combination of both. The heart of the matter will be the reserve clause in the standard contract of baseball players. Most baseball men, including players v/ho oppose a paternalistic setup between owners and players, are fearful about any abandonment of the reserve clause. The best that could be done here would seem to be possible modifications. Baseball is a business. But the owners invest big sums in bonus payments and in developing players. This differentiates the baseball business from other enterprises in which there is no corresponding investment in the development of personnel which could not easily be replaced. The farm system will also be looked into. The congressmen will probe to ascertain whether or not minor league players are unnecessarily held in farm clubs, delaying their advancement to the major league. But in all business, this sometimes happens. The peculiarities of baseball as a business should be considered and evaluated. If the reserve clause is knocked out, an anarchical situation . may be created unless a workable substitute for it is conceived.' Concerning baseball, a major consideration here is not that of sentimental attachment to the game as a sport, but rather the issue as to whether there are singular features in the business which warrant the retention of the reserve clause either as it is or in a modified form. This is the real nub of the question. Think: 800,000 Mao-Tse-tung is now reported to have admitted that 800,000 people were liquidated by his regime- up to 1954. The news scorns cold in print. But it should be dwelled upon. How long does it take for 800,000 people to die a natural death in any country? How much ground space is required to bury this number of people? How many wept over those deaths? How many orphans were left behind? This figure of. 800,000 liquidated is startling. How many regimes in all history have executed- as many a s 800,000 human beings—political opponents but, to repeat, human beings? How many political regimes have clone this in a space of five years? Did even the Nazis kill that many, JiOO.OOO, during the first five years of Hitler's inglorious rule?

Drew Pearson's MERRY-GO-ROUND FOUNDING FATHERS 7 DAY Wednesday Evening, June 36, Drew Pearson says: Navy cries lor money, but Saratoga got ?6S,000 primping for Ike; its captain rated good seaman with expensive tastes; Johnson master-minded Hell's Canyon bill. WASHINGTON—While the navy is crying for more funds, the aircraft carrier Saratoga managed to scrape up $65,000 to beautify itself for President Eisenhower's recent o v e r n i ght cruise. Ike's cabin alone cost $3,500 to redecorate in a style befitting the chief executive. Even the ship's mascot, a seagoing rooster, got doused with white paint to match •the gleaming white bulkheads. This touch was added by a disgruntled crewman who dumped a bucket of paint over the rooster as a protest against the extra work. The fancy refurbishing was ordered by the Saratoga's skipper, Capt. Robert Moore, who alibied to this column he didn't have Ike in mind at all. The big super carrier happened to need repainting, he said, before the presidential visit. Moore also denied spending $66,000 which, he said, was the ship's total repair budget for the quarter. He claimed the cabin, 'where Ike slept one night, had been ruined by workmen and needed re- fixing anyhow. Other Saratoga officers, interviewed by this column, disputed their skipper. They pointed out the Saratoga was launched only a year ago and didn't need a paint job already. They also claimed the cabin, selected for Ike by the Secret Service, was perfectly shipshape. Capt. Moore spent $3,500 refurnishing and redecorating it, they said, simply to impress the President. The Saratoga's interior had been a beige color which didn't sparkle enough to suit Moore. He also complained that the deck looked •liked "Mustard Yellow" to him. After word that the President might come aboard, Moore ordered the whole works repainted white and deck re-tiled with expensive green-and-white' kentile. The Saratoga happens to be the biggest ship in the navy. To redecorate it takes a lot of paint and tile. Crew members claim the captain not only spent the full $05,000 repair budget, but used up every cent available to the ship. The supply officer can't buy enough pencils to carry on the paper work, they say. un-til new •funds are allotted at the end of the fiscal year. One officer. L,t. Com. Eugene Cash, complained lhat Moore's repainting ordor technically violated naval regulations. Tin, asked Moore to sign the order in writing. But the skipper angrily refused. "There was no reason to sign," he explained to this column, "because my order did not Violate Naval Ilegulations." Moore also ordered an officer to got another set of slip covers for the furniture in the admiral's cabin, which Iko was first expected to use. The officer got. into somo furniture that Moore had brought with him from his last ship, the escort carrier Si honey. Subordinates claim Moore confined the officer to rjuarlers for ten days for geltint; into his furniture. More says (he officer put dirty slip covers on the furniture! intended for Ike's use, but denies •taking ;my disciplinary action. Somehow. Florida'."! Congressman A. K, HorlonK got wind lhat the Saratoga had spent thousand.'! of dollars sprucing up for Ike. tie askerl the navy for n full report, and the navy wired Mooro for- his explanation. He promptly ordered the records of every crew member searched to find ou' who came from Jferiong'.i district and might have tipped him off. Moore then wired the Pentagon that h« had inherited such a dirty .ship ho had been forced (o repaint and redecorate. He carefully destroyed ail copies of his wire, presumably lo conceal his reply from officers who know what condition the ship had buen in. Hob Mooro l« a dashing officer and crackerjack seaman, llio superiors nay he Iff a hot prospect for promotion In admiral. I'iven htK most dlsgnm(.'r;cJ subordinates admit he cnn handle a ohip masterfully. But Ihcy say he has cxpcn- sive tastes which he is inclined to gratify at the taxpayers' expense. After he took command of the- Saratoga, he refurnished and redecorated his cabin though it was almost brand new. He even installed a small lily pond in one corner. At Mayport, FJa., lie added a couple palm bashes. These mysteriously disappeared over the, ship's side. Moore says the palms were presented to him by a steward. "I don't know who threw them overboard, but I was g!ad to get rid of them," he says. Moore also ordered an RCA Hi- Fi set which he admits was paid out of the crew's recreation fund. "The recreation fund is intended for officers, too," he explains. While thrj ship was tied up for several weeks at the Brooklyn. Navy Yard, he used a government car and chauffeur to drive hack and forth to his apartment every day. "That's permissible," ho told this column. "Anyway, I usually had ship's business to attend to enroute." Capt. Moore ended the interview cheerfully. "I appreciate your calling me," he said, "but 'I'm afraid you don't have much of a story." IIoll'K SCIKIU- Itllttlv Passage of the Hell's Canyon Bill by an emphatic margin resulted from thu astute master minding of Texas Senator Lyndon Johnson. Johnson took advantage of one major factor and two minor ones to spring a surprise on an Issue which had been defeated repeatedly before and which no one, even yround the Senate, thought he luid a rual chance of winning. The major factor was the blazing resentment of Southern Democrats over the way Republican leaders, Nixon and Knowland, IIK- ually rivals, had joined forces to compel an curly vole on civil rights. Their action drove another nail Into the coffin of the old Dixie- Kepiiblican coalition, w h u r e b y Southern Democrats trailed anti- labor. Pro-utility votes while Northern Democrats gnve them votes against tbo NCRrci, With I/ho ending of this coulitlon, Johnson saw a chance to win Southern Democrats over to the anti-utility pro-public power side on the Hell's Canyon vote. To do this he moved fast while Southern renenlmerit was stlli boiling, ffo also moved fast because of the two minor factors, namely tliu ubsuncu from Washington of Florldu's Senator Holland, u Democrat who Imn voted against Hell's Canyon; also the absence of Republican lender Bill Knowlund, In California attending liis daughter's wedding. lleforo the vote, however, .Bobby Baker, secretary In the majority leader, belter known us tho "junior Lyndon," lined up a trade. LAFF-A-DAY Angelo Patri Teach Child He "Must" Do Some Things To be normally healthy and happy a human being needs lo have somethin(! that compels him to think and act beyond his immediate feelings which usually dictates a courses of the least resistance. Duty, said Wordsworth, is the stern voice of God—a ligtil lo guide— and we are .so constituted as to need that slern voice daily and that lighi to fjuide us. If for no other reason than convenience, we should insist that children be taught to carry a share of the day's work at home or in .school or working circles of the community. But there is the olhcr reason: strength is bred in mind and body and character when duty is recognlv/ed and carried through. To have nothing that must be done hy oneself on time and to standard is indeed to be without a guiding light in one's life, yet too many children are being reared today without this support. "What are the "Musts" that parents should accent for their children? Firsl. Self-help according to the child's ability Is necessary, and lhat ability needs stretching as t!me passes. Good manners. The right way of doing Ihlngs or of saying Ihfngs or of not doing cither, in something one mu.Hl learn, and since this takes time and experience, we should start early to teach the children what they MUST do — how and When. Obedience. Children MUST obey their leaders who are carrying responsibility for them or for tho nilualilon they linppen lo be in. Teacher and parents ore carrying responsibility for the children Ihcy are leading and teaching and, unless they are obedient to their leaders' words, they cannot follow or learn intelligently. Self-direction is possible only through experience, and children must gather experience under wound leadership which means authority, Skills. ISvory boy nnd girl MUST acquire skill In some direction. The first ones are personal. Tho ability to bathe and dress and feed thnmsoivOH are basic skills acquired under their mothers' direction. Then come the helpful oncK such an errands performed accurately, promptly and cheerfully. Then come the arts, crafts and Lrnde experiences. What In important here Is the allitude of parents and toochws. If they understand that they arts offering children one of the finest sources of happiness when they teach a child lo accept the fact that Four Northern Oemocrnis—MurT ray and Mansfield of Montana; .luckmin and MtiKmitmn of Washington, agreed to be Hympnl.hel.lc toward l.h« jury trial amendment to civil rights (UiouKli aol necessarily volu fur It) In return for southern votes for 1 roll's Canyon, Uolh sides delivered.

R.—Dona Felisa Rincon de Gautier, mayoress of San Juan, believes women must be feminine to succeed in politics. "We should work hard but always remember we are women," she advised. Dona Felisa, who once ran a 'dress shop, said women in politics should "look as attractive as possible"—they will never succeed by trying to look and act like men. Dona Felisa, a plump, vivacious woman of 59, gave her views to 22 visiting U. S. newspaperwomen at a reception in San Juan's city hall. Her attire clearly followed her own advice. She wore a black dress, black and silver shawl and silvery drop earrings. In her gray hair—braided into a high coronet—she placed a red hibiscus blossom. 10 Years In Office During the interview she took time out to show a Washington newswoman how to imitate her distinctive hair style. Although she said she is not a politician, Dona Felisa has been in politics a long time. She has served 10 years as mayor and city manager of this city of nearly 500,000 and was reappointed last month to another four-year term. She credited a "liking for people" for her success. "Th's (city hall)) used lo be a cole" place, but now is a warm ho'jse with love for all citizens," she explained. Dona Felisa keeps in close touch wilh San Juan's citizens through, an "open house" every Wednesday morning. Anyone with a problem or complaint can speak to her personally about it. Dona Felisa, daughter of a lawyer and a school teacher, started her political activity after Puerto Rican women were granted th» right to vote in 1932. Husband Objected In 1940 she helped form the Popular Democratic Party, now th« dominant political group in Puerto Kico. In its early days, she became treasurer of the party when no one else wanted the job. She accepted appointment a* mayor in 1946, after refusing tha post two years earlier. She said her husband, lawyer Jenaro A. Gautier, at first opposed iicr becoming mayor, but later withdrew his objections. As-mayor. Dona Felisa is credited with physically cleaning up this ancient city. She has sponsored new housing, schools, street and sanitation improvements. She conceded that her program "is not as big as 1 want," but said she "has to do the best wilh the money I've .got." Though she has named many women to municipal posts, Dona Felisa said that in making ap- poinlmenls she never thinks "in terms of men and women," but ability to do Ihe job. Solve Mixup of Babies By Use of X-Ray Fi CHICAGO—A radiologist's interpretation of Ihc shadows on an X-ray film led lo the return of an infant to its rightful parents. The case was repartee! in a recent issue of Radiology by Dr. Stanley H. Macht, of Hagerslown, Md. Machl said a mixup occurred at a hospital which docs not routinely take footprints of newborn babies. Here's how it happened; On April (i, 1955, "Baby Girl D" (No. 1) was brought to Ihe nursey from the delivery roam. Her condition was such thai back and front X-ray films of her chest were taken and the radiologist discovered an enlarged tnymiis. On April 11, 1055, "liaby Girl D" (No. 2) was admitted lo the nursery. The mother's initial was Uic same as that of the muliier of baby No. 1. Snmc Dlooil Types On April 12, the mother of baby No. l was discharged from the hos- pital while tho day supervisor of the nursery was off duly. A second nurse, unaware thai there wero two "Baby D's" took Ihe first "Baby D" she saw—Ihe wrong one. The mother failed to recognize the difference because she had not nursed her infant and had seen it only for short periods. The supervisor returned, recog- nised Ihe situation and the mother was informed. She returned lo Ihe hospital for positive identification, hut it then was discovered that all tho blood types of both scls of parents were the same. Mother No. 1 began to gel. alarmed. The radiologist learned of Ilia dilemma, and poinled out thai an X-'."iy had disclosed an enlarged Ihymus in baby No. 1, X-rays then were I ultra of uolh infants and lha mixup was straightened out.
