editorials I'M* 4 Garden t:lty TelttfrAm FriiiY, Augu*r 2, 1963 Beer Guzzlers Ousted '"The Kansas Park Authority is ^olt.inj? touprh with the brer-drinking slobs who litter the swimming beaches in state parks. Fed up with beer cans, bottles, ami other trash which arc making our beaches unsafe, the KPA has put an anti-lwor regulation into offoct at .state bwich- es. The guzzlers are banned only from the swimming boache?, bnl if complaints continue, they may be ohasod from the entire yi.irk. In addition to liltering the l/eftches, drinker* also get. rough. They wreck park property, damage rest rooms, and spoil the fun for decent families who arc out for a pleasant outing. We can't have any sympathy for those porsona who abuse public property. Those who toss beer cans and other litter around our parks, benches, streets and sidewalks should not only l>e given stiff fines but also held up to public ridicule. So if bow guzzlers are littering themselves off the state's benches, we have no regreta — unless it is that the stale didn't act sooner. Out, Damned Spot Tf Barry Goldwater and the Republican Party choose to try to do in the nuclear teat ban treaty, in the l>est ghostly tradition they will be haunted not only by memories of that reactionary bunch of die hards (that did in the League of Nations, but by Lady Macbeth as well. She's the gal from Shakespeare, you remember, who in the latter stages before death wa* always trying to wash out that damned spot. Opposition parties should always look at opposing angles to the administration's proposals, but if the Republican party articulates this natural duty into obstructionism purely for the flake of obstruction a'la-IIenry Cabot Lodge, ST., and 1919, it will, have back-pedaled iteeflf into far less than a national party, even a Conservative party. Of course the Russians can't be trusted. That's basic. We must always be on guard, suspicious that they're sneaking something by, treaty or no treaty. Butt the overwhelming danger from continued unlimited atomspheric testing cannot be ignored, though there is little agreement on where the danger is, or if it were at some previously-passed point. We must grasp at the hope that the Russians, also understand this danger, and then IK; constantly alert to their back- pedalling on the agreement. Tf we turn away from an agreement, which may or may not be worthless, we are taking the chance of cursing future generations with deadly fallout possibilities, which like the blood on Lady Maabeth's hand, will not simply wash out. , ff Si (Writing tltc Distaff column today is Roosevelt "Ted" Whiter*, a Garden Citinn for about two years. lie majored in German at Friends Univcrsit)!, a<nd -now manages to work in soine, hitoHnrj in German along with operating his business, Winters' Janitor Service, and serving ''as pastor of the Second Baptist church in Dodge. City.) (l.h. By ROOSEVKLT (TED) WRITERS IT HAS been snid that the Nogro (and all other minority groups) is okay as long as he stays in "his place." But the question arises, and must be answered : where i.s "hi« place"? * * * NEGROES, AND all ruther minority group members range from the very bottom to the very top on the intellectual wale; they hold positions from top ditch-digger to top exfx-utive in integrated firms. Seeing then that this cannot be disputed, just where is his place in our societv? * * * IF HIS place is one of total dependence upon someone else, if lie is la/.y, unstable, unintelligent and morally unsafe, why does anyone want him around even for purposes of servitude? IF all of the preceding adjeciivew are true descriptions of him, then something was and 'still is wrong with the motive of those responsible for his being here. However, wlmn one logins to attach such descriptive words to all of the members of a griven race, he is to be looked upon with suspicion. It is generally known that there are desirables as well &n undesirables in every race, * * * IF ON the contrary, he is capable of conducting himself as an intelligent, civic-minded citizen, why then should he l>e catogorized or stwectfyped? Someone ha.s observed that more education is needed in order to solve the problem. Granted this is true. But must a member of a miiwritu orotin -who has been cournqeoiis enough to net a college education, in sinte of all nniiofititin. trait until ln'$ whole race becomes educated bi fore lie i.s ,s-i7 free? Or who can look at a person and tell how much education he has? Or what race is completely educated? So then, it would seem reasonable to me that one should be accepted or rejected for his abilities and not for his race, religion, or national origin. This should l>e done not for the good of anv given group but for the good of our national dignity, and indeed for the international position that we hold. * * * IN TIMES of international crises we do not call for "whites <mlv ! ' or "blacks only," but we call for men who are physically able and ready to serve their country. If. then, a minority group member is competent enough to be trusted with guarding our national freedom, where then is his place among us? Or on the other hand, if lie is trustworthy enough to be given the "delicate" task of preparing our food, caring for our children, cleaning our homes and many chores which pm him in close contract with u.s, why not complete freedom? * * * SO THEN, Negroes and all other minorities are okay as long as they stay in "their place"; but we, in all fairness to ourselves and to our way of life, must not aticempt to define that place for them. Indeed, they themselves must, by their own abilities, desires, hopes, and aspirations, decide where their p!m:e in ouif&ociety is.

The Chinese Dilemma—What to expect when the Red Chinese have nuclear bombs, although they may make plenty of trouble before they do, and what to ex- peel when the present generation of old-time leaders is gone. 2. The French Dilemma—How to get along now with President De Gaulle, in order t6 keep the Western Alliance together, and then what to expect when this old-timer is also gone. Last Monday, a few clays after the United States. Britain and Russia agreed to a limited nuclear test ban, De Gaulle said he would not join so long as they continue to produce nuclear arms. They didn't agree not to. He also said he wanted no cart of something else. This was Premier Khrushchev's suggestion of a nonaggression treaty between the Western partners and their opno- site number. Russia and its European satellites. Ever since Monda'y—and it is understood the orders came from the White House—the State Department has clammed up on Uie subject of De Gaulle, saying practically nothing about his obstructionism. Reporters were told President Kennedy would do the talking at his news conference Thursday. He talked but in a very real sense said nothing, giving no indication this country has yet figured out how to get De Gaulle to play ball. What he seemed to express was bafflement. Was this country considering giving some of its nuclear secrets to De Gaulle, secrets which might make it unnecessary for him to test in order to persuade him not to? Kennedy glossed over tftis. He said what 'was already long known: That De Gaulle had turned down this country's offer of Polari s missiles, an offe r the British accepted. He said this country had made some suggestions to De Gaulle about cooperation but got no replv. But even if the icy De Gaulle melted a bit, cooperated, and stopped being a problem, this country couldn't even guess at what might come when De Gaulle, now 72, i s out of the picture. The French government has been the most chaotic and unstable in Western Europe since the war. De Gaulle had to come out of retirement and take over the presidency to put it on its feet. That may be strictly temporary. When he finally departs any one of a number of things may happen: More chaos, civil war, a dictatorship of the right o r left. The Red Chinese, breaking with Russia and determined to make their own nuclear weapons, not only refuse to join the test ban agreement but call the whole thing a fraud. Kennedy said he thought it a menacing situation that (1) China's population, biggest in the world, is exploring. (2) it is almost surrounded by smaller and weaker nations, (3) it wants waf to achieve world communism, and (4) in 10 years or so it may be a nuclear power. Kennedy considers all thesejdc- tors together a "potentially more dangerous situation than any we faced since the end of the war." So he doesn't know what to expect, now or later, but particularly later when China has nuclear weapons. The original Chinese Communists, who began their lifelong campaign for the domination of China in the 1920s, arc all old or elderly men now They're dying out. These were the fanatic revolutionaries who sacrificed everything fi>r a dream.
