THE BRAZOS|>ORT FACTS EDITORIAL PAGE i Brnroiport and Braiorla CoMnly, Friday. Auauit ' , " i— IIM BISHOP. REPORTER Story Was Very Important Y PEOPLE .... '"' Jte .. Bishop i» on vacation. Today's column is written by Fred C. Shapiro of the Baltimore News-Post. They were unimportant stor- let; they were the overset. There was a story about a sm- •11 fire; another about the appointment of a deputy commiss-- loner of sewers, a third th»t announced the arrest of a drunk- Mi driver. There was the story about the fdrl who won a scholarship to a university, and Hie one about the .young man who won an indeter- •mlnste sentence for thebuglary of a candy store: These were the stories that didn't get in the paper. They ere stories that have been reported, written, edited and set In type. Then they'are thrown away. In the race lor news, these are the also-rans. Sometimes the stories killed fa the overset seem better than the ones that made the paper. Take that one •boat the small fire for Instance. It WM my atory, ^ ft was a quiet-summer evening. I was working in police fc*dmarters from four tffl- ft ffldnt look like much of » ere. ft was fa a row house in the worst part of town, but ft ens close to hcadouarteri and IfeltllketaWngarWe?- There wasn't mnchontsldedt- ttaw to the bouse, Just agutted THE IfGHTB? Interior. My experienced colleagues from thecompetttionki- ssed it off and went back to work. I didn't have anything bett- e £ to *>, so I hung around. The fire was out by that time, and the firemen vere carrying smouldering rubble from the first floor of the house. Then the owner walked around the comer and came on down the street. He was a middle-aged Negro. He walked with just a. little bit of a lurch and there was a smite on his face- until he saw the firemen. He screamed. It was a high-pitched, woman's kind of a scream. "What are you, doing in my house, "he yelled. He tried to run into the build- Ing and almost knocked over the fire captain who was walking out. He swung at the captain, ft was* a wild swing, and a few of the firemen came over and grabbed him. They pinned Ws arms and they held him there.' "Unit finished fixing It,"' he said. "I worked two years." He stood quietly and his face contorted fa spasms and tears stained his sports shirt. The' nremen let him go and .walked away. They didn't want to look at him. Cne of theflreaun walked over tome. "ft was the nicest houselever jew around here," he said. "It bad paneling and ithadfixtures. The wood vas all hand-rubbed. There wasn't inything m there that cost much money, but he did everything a guy could do to nuke it beautiful." The engine driver Is the man responsible for getting thebas- ic information for the department reports. He questioned the man and I listened in to pick up what 1 needed. ThemaiV stoodthere, facingawayfromhls house. The engine driver said thech- lef thought the fire started because of a short circuit In the basement wiring. Then the nremen got on their truck and went away. And all the neighbors who had come out to watch vent back into their homes The man and I stood alone before the gaping hole of whathad been his doorway. Behind him I could see the ashes and the rubble He looked at me and wiped Ws eyes for the first . time. "I just finished," he said. "I wanted to get it fixed up. J*»8htIM had a nice place rd be able to offer ft to some woman. I wanted to get mar- ricti, 'Tor two years 1 worked. Funny, tonight was my first night" out." He turned and he walked quietly Into his house. . I wanted M foUow him to say something, but I didn't know then, and 1 ! don't know now, what I eouM I went back and I wrote the ttory. It wound up in overset, ft wasn't important..

But there are other and deeoer reasons that perhaps would add up to more ' In the long run. .-:...;• Asians always have resented the United States' "Europe first" policy. This feeling, when set against the' oriental exclusion laws, has given many Asians an attitude of being treated like "second class" citizens. Asian nations also a re Ju« beginning to dig out from centuries of Western colonialism. There is still much evidence of national Inferiority complexes and there still is a reservoir of bitterness toward former rulers. Thus, a visit by an American president— especially one so revered as President Eisenhower- could, do much to alleviate and palliate these feelings. To understand Asians' feelings, it must be realized that no American president ever has visited Asia while in office, There is scarcely a country fa Asla-those behind the iron curtain except —in wliich Mr. Els- enhower's presence alone could not quiet, if not actually lead to peaceful solution of, some extremely important problems.
