Those interested in the structure arc making a bid for it. but it doesn't appear at this time that any serious division of interest will result. As Mayor Sloan put it yesterday, the building should IH> used in a way most valuable to the city. Actually, while the city fcovorninp: lx>dy will have the final say, the structure belongs to all the taxpayers of the city. Any tfood use of the buildinjr by either the schools or the city should be acceptable to the citizenry. While it is easy to say that the structure should be used in the way most suitable to community need, making this determination could be difficult. If two different bodio-s, such as the Recreation Commission which has bid for the building and the Board of Education which at one time expressed an interest, both felt they had a prime need, it could be difficult to resolve the issue. We bring this up to point out a need which has existed in this community for years — that of closer working between those who govern our tax dollars. While their problems differ in nature, they are all spending money from the same pockets. Wo again suggest that at least once a year, and better twice, our City Commission, County Commission and Board of Education hold joint sessions to discuss mutual problems which deal with mutual dollars. Letter to the Editor Why No Juvenile Officer? Why don't we have a trained juvenile officer Jn Garden City? Liberal has a probate judge who devotes much of his time to counseling delinquent youth and setting up corrective programs. Could this be why they have no cases in the Boys Industrial School? Did you know that the city and county commissioners offered to bring a professional juvenile officer into Garden City on a three-way program some time ago and this was refused by the Board of Education. A number of ministers, school officials, and city and county officials who work with youth were recently invited to ntitend a specially called meeting on juvenile problems but after the meeting was over, there was interest shown only by two or three. A second mcdting was called in Dodge City and only three people attended from Garden City. Three different well qualified men have volun-' teored to come to Garden City to discuss and advise us on our juvenile problems, Tf one of these men were asked to come back, would YOU attend n meeibing? GARDEN CITY P-TA COUNCIL, Mrs. Bert Frazier, Pros., Mrs. Bill Galloway, Mrs. Walter W. Snell, Mrs. Max Parrish. Back to Dog's Life for Star TUCSON, Ariz. (AP)—Star, a 6-year-old weimaraner, has lost his air conditioned station wagon, his silver eating dishes and a $300 a month caretaker. After three months and $7,061 of luxury, the pampered pooch is going back to a dog's life. The decision came when Tucson attorney Martin Rogers announced in Superior Court that he would resign as executor of the estate of Mrs. Olivia Kuhlmann, the animal's late mistress. Mrs. Kuhlmann's will said that Rogers was to use "sufficient funds" of ths $62,885 estate to care for Star. The remainder, upon Star's death, is to go 'to Sol Rosenbloom, Tucson, and Mrs. Mayme Mullen and Mrs. William Walsh of University City, Mo. As residual heirs, they filed suit to remove Rogers as executor. They said he wa s too extragant in caring for Star. The case came to an abrupt end Tuesday when Rogers said the case has affected his practice and his family in such a way he thought it best to step tside. Drew Pearson Reports California Congressman Has Conenient Memory Hal Boyle Says: Vacation Puts Man in Place NEW YORK (AP> There's nothing quite like n vacation to teach a fellow his place in the office. It was Smythc's first day back after three weeks spent listening to his wife and building sand cashes for the kidies nt good old Quagmire Cottages by-tho-sen. Sm'ythe was the first man into the office. He went to the washroom, combed his hair, straightened his necktie, practiced in the mirror his gee but it's great to bo back again grin. Then he went to his desk, meth- odicially tore off the paRe s necessary to bring his calendar up to date—and collapsed on his swivel chair, completely exhausted. In the next hour, :t7 fellow workers passed Smythe's paper- bare desk. "Glad to seo you back—been sick?" asked L'5. The other 12 made such remarks as: "If I'd of known you'd of been out this long, I'd of sent you a get well card.' 1 "What hospital were you in?" "Tht'y must have kept you under a sun lamp a lot. You gotta nice tan then'." "How'd the nurses treat you?" After each remark — nolxnly asked him about his vacation— Smythe made a lonely trip to the water cooler. At 10 o'clock he \\ent over to reporl to the chief accountant. ''1 guess 1 better start catching up with the .situation," said Smythe. "\\'ho handled my work while 1 was gone? 1 ' "What work?" inquired tin- chief accountant. Smylhe trudged bark to his desk and busied himself neatly arranging the paper clips in the top draww. At noon he went to lunch with three old cronies. He pulled out sonic snapshot,, taken during his vacation, but nobody seemed interested in them. After lunch Smythe re-sharpened his pencils until 3 o'clock when he rccieved a surprise summons from the big boss. Handing him a cigar, the big boss said: "Smtyhc. you've been doing a splendid job'for the firm the last few weeks, and I just want to let you know first-hand there'll be an extra $20 on your next paycheck." "Hut, sir, I've been on vacation for the last three weeks." "Aren't you Ed Smythe from sales?" "No, sir, I'm Jim Sm'ythe in accounting." The- big boss reached out, plucked hack his cigar and said, My mistake, Smythe. Hut remember, no matter what department your'rc in—keep up the good work.'" Upon leaving the offic ( » Smythe walked alone to his favorite tav- oni. "Well, well, well — welcome buck, Mr. Smythe," said the bartender. "Sure did miss you. Did you have a nice vacation?"

C h e t Hollfield, the Los Angeles Democrat considered the big bull in the atomic china shop, has had an interesting change of life. Ther c was a tim e when diet ached for the professors at Cal Tech who signed a round robin urging an end of nuclea r tests. John McConc, then a stalwart Eisenhower Republican, now a tepid Kennedy Republican as head of Centra] Intelligence, was vigorous in his criticism of these professors. As a member of the Cal Tech board of regents be seemed on the verge of disciplinary action. Chet Holificld at that time valiantly cam e to their rescue. Now that Chet has experienced hi s congressional menopause, however, he lines up on the side of John McCone, discounts the danger of radioactive fallout and even wants to hand fissionable materials, the deadly ingredients for the atom bomb, over to private industry. He is also the biggest booster for building nuclear reactors in or near big cities regardless of possible danger. It's interesting how a congressional menopause can make a man forget. Here are some instances of Chefs forgetfulness: 1. Last week the congressman told this column: "These reactors are perfectly safe ... in the event of a breakdown there would be no explosion but rather the reactOj- would simply overheat and melt down and all radioactivity would be encased in the . concrete and steel foundations." But In 1957, the same congressman said: "If the controls of n nuclear reactor fail, it could explode and release radioactive clouds of gas and contaminated material in solid or liquid form into the countryside area." "This bill," he said, referring to n proposed plan to have the U.S. Government provide half a billion dollar.? of insurance against a nuclear accident, "would place the Federal Government in an enormous potential liability that could reach several hundred billion dollars." 2. Last week Holifield reasoned: "The safety of these reactors i s insured since (hey have to be approved as safe by a safeguard committee." In 1957 the same HolifieUi said: "How can we be sure that the Atomic Knergy (.'omission will not overrule the safeguard committee a s it has done in the past?" 3. Last wwk discussing subsides from Uncle Sam to help the private utilities build nuclear reactors, llolifield said: "The actual subsidies proposed are only 16 per cent of the total cost. Why shouldn't we provide this aid? We've given the same subsidy to Ui e rail s and the airplanes." But in 1957, the same congressman from suburban Los Angeles said: "1 am opposing thi s bill because it would provide another government subsidy to atomic power without any commensurate benefits to taxpayers and power consumers." 4. Last week Hep. Holifield, in discussing the proposal to build a nuclear reactor at Malihu Beach on property owned largely by Bob Hope nea t the famed Malibu Beach resort, said: "I wouldn't make an area unsafe where 1 have three daugh- ters and thirteen grandchildren residing." But in 1957, Rep. Holifield told congress: "I have alwa'ys been for constructing them like they are constructed now In isolated areas. But now they are allowing them to 'build these reactors close to cities and that is the thing I am afraid of." It is difficut to know when Chet Holifield to believe. Ch«t HolWeld's July 29 hearings to hand fissionable materials over to private industry will be a put-up-job calculated to sell the idea to Congress, not encourage free discussion. Witnesses are carefully picked to present the idea in a favorable light. Witnesses had to submit 12 copies of their proposed testimony as early as Jury 15 and the average scientist didn't even know about when the hearing was going to be held, let alone have time to prepare a statement by July 15 ... What the joint atomic energy of congress needs is the former devotion of Sen. Clint Anderson, D-N. Mex. Clint is now giving hi s time to the Space Committee. He was once the public's chief watchdog on the Joint Atomic Committee . . Anderson, an ex-newsman, played a vital part in unearthing one of the great scandals of the first post-war period— Teapot Dome. Wokring in Albuquerque, Anderson notice^ that Albert K. Fail, Secretary of the Interior under Harding, suddenly had become affluent. Anderson investigated, finally discovered that a race horse had arrived at the Fall ranch in a special rail- road car from the New Jersey farm of Harry Sinclair of the Sinclair Oil Co. From this Anderson helped trace the sale of the Navy's choice oil reserves by the late Secretary of the Interior . . . Some people smell another Teapot Dome scandal re the way the AEC wants to hand out huge subsidies to the private utilities in congested areas; also how word of nuclear accidents is being hushed up ... Watch for word of trouble in one reactor very near one of the biggest cities in the USA. So far, it's been kept super secret. Wheat Test Weight Equals State Record TOPEKA (AP) — Test weight, protein content and sedimentation values of the 1963 wheat crop are up from last year, and the test weight is equalling the state record, according to the Federal - State Crop Reporting Service. Samples show an average test weight of 61.9 pounds per bushel, compared to 60.8 last year and a 10-year average of 60 pounds. Protein content is averaging 12.1 per cent and sedimentation values show an average of 50.

Time after time the girl and sympathetic school friends even teachers could be seen on hands and knees searching halls and classroom floors for the lost lens, The hoax lasted almost 'til the end of the term. By then everyone had caught on that the gal's eyes were all right. She didn't own, or need, contact lens. * * * THE ASP in the movie, "Cleopatra," had two understudy asps, according to the publicity. Attorney General Upholds State's Stand TOPEKA (AP)-Atty, Gen. Wil- Ham Ferguson has upheld the stand taken by the Highway Commission in a disagreement with the Turnpike Authority over a proposed refunding bond issue for the 18th Street Ex-pressway. Ferguson issued an opinion Tuesday that a new agreement between the turnpike authority and the commission must be completed before highway funds can be pledged to the bond issue. The attorney general's opinion was asked by Charle s Henson, Highway Commission attorney. Ferguson said that an agreement signed by the 1958 Highway Commission at the time the original bonds were issued for the 18th Street project cannot bind succeeding commissions to guarantee any refunding bonds subsequently issued.

ENDS TONIGHT Rock Hudson—Rod Taylor in "A GATHERING OF EAGLES" This picture "HUD" is a rough one. But it's a good one, too! So we have before us the question of who should not see it. It is easy for me to say, simply, it is an "ADULT PICTURE", but that brings up another question: "When is a person an adult?" That Question I cannot answer, and I don't know anyone wno can. So all I can say is this: I think the picture is so well made and acted, and such a good one; so engrossing and exciting, that everyone who is old enough to understand what it is all about should see it. But I think that every parent who considers his child not an adult should keep them away; or see the picture first, and then decide. Whomever sees the "HUD" is not going to be bored for an instant, that's for sure. They will go away with a little more knowledge of the kind of people we are liable to run into in the world, and better equipped to recognize and face the evils that lurk constantly in the shadows around us. Everyone who sees "HUD" will leave the theatre a a little more wordfy wise, and superbly entertained. CHUCK REES, MGR. STARTS SUNDAY!
