Here's how it works: A daily call is made at a specified time to an elderly person living alone. If the call is not answered, an immediate investigation is made. In some places a public-spirited individual foots the telephone bill, in other towns the community takes over and in some cities a non-profit answering service keeps in telephone touch with the elderly. These calls not only provide some protection to these persons, but also add comfort and break the monotony of long, lonesome flays. Those who live with heart conditions, high blood pressure or other such ailments are relieved and reassured by the calls, and those who fear injury by falls are given the same assurance. Where an answering service handles the telephone checks, it also can keep a form on each subscriber which lists nearest relatives, physician, and chronic diseases. It makes a lot of good sense. Many of our senior citizens enjoy living alone, but still need and would appreciate a daily telephone check. A single telephone call can save a life. Letter fo rhe Editor May Not Stop with Nuns Kansas has had more than its share of odd-balls with the coming of Mrs. Murray. Perhaps along with the high-moraled atheists you have known you might gather in a few Communists who also started out with high minded and humane ideals. One has only to look at the contribution communism has given to the world without leaders who seek out God's guidance to know that atheism is but andther branch on the tree that brings forth evil. True, there are hypocrits in our church congregations but as a Christian, what have you done to keep them from being what they are? And in the second place who are you to pass judgment on them? I am not a Catholic, but if those good-hearted nuns can teach children what they are supposed to learn and ait the same time give a good example of Christian conduct, it's fine with me. How do we know Mrs. Murray will stop with the Caitholic nuns? Perhaps if she should be so fortunate as to win another decision she would have all school teachers belonging to the Methodist Church removed and then all those who belong to the Lutheran Church, etc. I say if she wants to live in n country free of religion lei, her book passage to Cuba, communist China or Russia, and find out what it's really like. How ironic that a part of this land that was sought after for religious freedom should be given to an organization seeking freedom from religion. — ALICE WIDNER, Copeland. President Asks More in Aid Than He Will Get Drcw Pearson Reports Khrushchev Says USSR To Proceed on Arms Cut Hal Boyle Says: (EDITOR'S NOTE: Drew Pearson has scored another scoop In the following exclusive interview _ the first since the test-ban treaty — wi*h Nikita Khrushchev.) GAGRA, GEORGIA, U.S.S.R.— Premier Nikitn Khrushchev has informed me, in thc first exclusive interview after the test ban treaty, that the Soviet would proceed with arms reduction whether the United States reduced or not. "In the field of economic., we will compete with Business Exec Has His Troubles but we've reduced arms unilaterally. They've saved fantastic funds and our fire-power is not weaker. It is greater." "The military," Khrushchev concluded, sometimes doesn.'t know when to stop." The above appears to confirm reports that Khrushchev was having arguments with Red Army leaders. He gave me a hint of this when he told me two 'years ago that military leaders wanted to resume nuclear testing. It was also reported after This time, however, Nikita Ser- geavitch, as he is affectionately called by the Russian people, was far more friendly to Kennedy. When I asked him about the possibility of inviting Kennedy to Moscow he indicated this was up to Kennedy.

Van Rolleghem of the Belgian air force. a ritual in a bargain basement. The President «9ks more money for foreign aid than anybody, probably including himself, thinks he'll get. The immediate reaction in Congress i, a kind of horror at the thought of shoveling out all that money to foreigners again. Since the war the United States has provided more than $100 billion in economic and military aid to 111 countries. After this annual shock Congress finally votes more foreign aid than it seemed willing to do but always less than the President asked. Tuesday the hous e began its yearly debate: how much money this time? There will be many weeks of shuffling before the final dcision. That's why President Kennedy's opening statement at his news confeienCe was a rather muffled cry of anguish. He urged Congress to be careful with the scissors. He will have more to say later if Congress gets too frisky. This year Kennedy frustrated some of the eager tailors in the Capitol by snipping off some of the money he asked for before Congress had a chance. Lasi Jan. 1 he asked $4.9 billion in aid. But before Congress stopped chattering about the enormity of it and get down to business, something extraordinary happened. A $>>*elal 10-m*n committee— headed by Gen. Lucius D. Clay— which Knnedy had appointd to investigate operations of the foreign aid program came out for foreign aid all right—'but not with the price tag Kennedy had put on it. The committee said—or seemed to say, for there Wa s a lot of confusion about this when the committee reported last March 24 —that albout $500 milion should be trimmed off the $4.9 billion Kennedy had asked. On April 2, Kennedy sent a special message to Congress on foreign aid, chopping almost $500 million off his original request, which is what the Clay committee had seemed to suggest. On Aug. 6 the House Foreign Affairs Committee went Kennedy one better. It suggested Congress should authorize no more than $4.i billion for foreign aid, or $800 million less than Kennedy had originally said was needed. That figure was the starting point when the House began considering the matter this week. But the inclination of some House mem'bers will be to show even greater economy than its committee. The greatest foreign aid tailor in the House is Rep. Otto E. Passman, a Democrat and a mil- lionarie from Louisiana. In 1961 he had h.mself wheeled into the House on big debate day —he had broken his shoulder the day before—and told colleagues: "Even though I'm in pain, I question whether I am as in as much pain as the 187 million Americans who have to foot the bill for this." He has long considered foreign aid "fouled up and uncontrollable." In 1962 Kennedy asked $4.9 billion. Congress appropriated about $1 billion less even though, in the midst of the slashing, Kennedy protested against cutting "the heart out of the program." In 1961 Kennedy sought $4.8 billion. Congress voted about $800 million less even though, in the midst of the slicing and slitting, Kennedy cried out against a decapitated program that would be "too little and too late." AIR CONTROL CO.
