<»nr<lcn 4'il.y Telegram Saturday, August 10, 1963 They'll Do It Every Time By Jimmy Hado Beneficial Benefit "W/cekerid comments: Tomorrow night's softball show, planned as a benefit for Lee Richardson Zoo, starts what we hope will be a precedent. Garden City's zoo is a major attraction for visitors to our city, and since we have been here, this is tin; first time any promotion has been staged to liolp the zoo. If .successfill, and from advance reports we think it will be, tomorrow night's event will be the first of what will be annual benefit games for the /oo. We would like to see more xoo-rni ruled organizations. The Telegram has staffed four area county fairs in the last two weeks, and plans to cover about that many more in the next two weeks. For us, it's a news-coverage job we feel should be done. We aren't soliciting any advertising from these area towns to cover our fair reporting expense, or selling the space in which we publish the judging results, fair stories and pictures. Our only apology is that we can't hit every county fair i?i the area. Our mail contains numerous releases from large insurance firms, extolling the virtues of a new policy, boosting of an increase in dollar volume, or listing a local representative as top salesman in the area. We often see advertising from these companies on television or hoar it on radio, but seldom if ever in newspapers. Yet this "free" publicity is sent in large volume to nearly all newspapers. We are puzzled: If the printed word isn't their choice for advertising, why do they turn to it for promotion ? d. h. A BUNCH of local high school grads from back in the "hard times" era are planning on good times tomorrow (Sunday) at their first reunion in 30 years. The class of 1933 will meet for a Smorgasbord at 2 p.m. at Downing's and after a brief program of business and planned reminiscing the rest of the afternoon will be reserved for visiting and getting rcacciuainted. "It's been 30 years," observed a class member, "so every one will look a little different." * * * THE CLASS is issuing an invitation to anyone in and around town to drop in at Downing's (back room) between 3:30 and 5 :30 p.m. to join in the visiting. . . especially if they remember members of the class and schooldays in the thirties. Those registered for attendance at the class reunion are: Mr. and Mrs. Leo Curtis Weaver, Sacramento, Calif; Mrs. Irene (Jacobs) Slater, Quinter; Mrs. Alma (Hubbard) Patterson, Evergreen, Colo; Mr. and Mrs. Richard Young (Ruby Brown), Latour, Mo.; Mr. and Mrs. S.

A N S THE BEACH PARTY DIDN'T HAVE TROUBLE ENOUGH .WHAT WITH NO CAM- OPENER AND THE WIND BLOWING THE SMOKE THE WRONG WAY— BUT TO TOP IT ALL- EVERYBODY FORGOT THERE'S SUCH A THING AS AN INCOMING TIDE— END OF BEACH PARTY— PERIOD/ Drew Pearson Reports B_Kln t F««l«im Syndlmtt. Ine.. i(K8. \VorlJ rights rr" Europeans Eye Test Ban Treaty with Much Interest (Editor's No*e — Drew Pear- .Son has started a tour of some of the key countries which affect the foreign policies of the United States. Today h« writes again from Greece.) ATHENS — The people of Southern Europe, especially our old ally Greece, ase tremendous - ly interested in the "big thaw." They arc wondering whether the USA and the USSR will really end the colil war. In 1&59, after President Eisenhower had started an earlier thaw with Nikita Khrushchev at Camp David, I lunched with Premier Constantino Caramanlis at the Astir Beach Pavilion which Congressman Adam Clayton Powell and his two female assistants made famous on last summer's junket to Europe. "First you want us to fight the Russians,' 1 said the Prime Minister of Grcijsc, "now you w : ant us to kiss ine Russians. Which are we to do?" The U-2 flight over Russia and the break-up of the summit conference in 1'aris soon told the Groeks that they were not to kiss the Russians. The cold war was still on. So now they want to know whether there will be a reversal of Kennedy's kiss-and- make-up policy with Moscow. In other words, there is tremendous interest among our friends, our allies, and even our non-friends as to whether the Senate will ratify the test-ban treaty. A$ I left the United States, a succession oi harpies, harbingers of failure, cloud-sitters, preventive-war pundits, and organized disbelievers in peace was starting a campaign to undermine Senate confirmation of Kennedy's first cautious step toward peace. They \\vre: Harpies — One of the loudest to sound off was Congrcsswom- un Frances Bolton of the Cleveland suburbs, a Republican lady of wealth, charm, and determination, who has done some fine things for the nation's capital in trying to preserve the view acros s Ihe Potomac from Mount Vernon, but who saw communists under overy bed on a trip to Hawaii, and wants to keep (hi world in a state of suspended animation between peace and war. "f wouldn't trust Russia to keep an agreement and I wouldn't tnisl K.nncil>'s \wrnl either," Mrs. ilolton ti»4<l a Republican women's luncheon even before the ink was dr>' on the t»sf han treaty. Harbingers o£ failure wort; I'd by Richard M. Nixon, who criticized the test-ban treaty from Berlin, accused Kennedy of "woolly thinking" in believing Hie treaty would relax the cold war, and urged that we should "insist on freedom for the peoples on wthom communist dictatorships have been imposed against their will ... the United States should use all its power to get some aid for these oppressed peoples." When Nixon was vice president, however, he took a triumphal tour through Russia, told the Russian people how he and Eisenhower wanted friendship with the Russian people, even apologized to Khrushchev because Congress has passed a captive nations week resolution urging aid for the satellite nations. Cloud-sitters were ted by Sen. "Scoop" Jackson, the handsome boy wonder from Washington state, and a Democrat who poured cold water on the test-ban talks, said it would be "utterly unrealistic'' to believe a test-ban agreement would stop the spread of nuclear weapons. Preventive-war pundits were led by Dr. Edward Teller, Who came to Washington for a breakfast with congressmen to warn them in advance against a test- ban treaty. Dr. Teller is a distinguished and convincing scientist, but not entirely without prejudice. It was revealed during the Senate debate on Admiral Le \v i s Strauss that Teller was being paid by big defense contractors at the rate of $1,000 a day, that he had received $20,000 so far that year, that his biggest client was General Dynamics, one of the top defense contractors of the nation. O r g a n i zed disbelievers in peace \ver o led by the national strategy committee, whose lead- ers include Loyd Wright, the right-wing Los Angeles lawyer whose security report for Eisenhower was so far to the right it was junked; Admiral Ben Morrell, an indefatigable and indiscriminate flag-waver; Gen. Albert Wedemeyer, Admiral Chester Ward, and various professional and semi-professional patrioteers. Just as Averell Harriman was beginning his delicate negotiations, this outfit sent all members of Congress a report aimed at cutting the ground from under the Kennedy policy of restoring confidence between Russia and the United States. This policy, as outlined by Secretary of State Rusk to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on March 11, is: "What we need are arrangements on which confidence can be built as a matter wholly separate from the question of whether the Russians will trust us or we can trust the Russians, because the very arrangements themselves provide a basis for growing confidence." President Kennedy, in his TV report to the nation on the test- ban treaty, made it clear that the treaty was a joint step by the two most powerful nations in the world to build for future confidence and peace. The disbelievers in peace carefully wrote every member of Congress to try to pull the nig out from under this important step. The people of Europe will be watching intently to see whether their efforts succeed. Chess is believed to h a v e originated in India at least 13 centuries ago. It was called chaturanga, or "four arms," after the components of a contemporary army — elephants, horses, chariots and infantry.
