THE BRAZOSPORT FACTS EOTOUAL PAGE Brozosport and Brazorla Cbunty, Tuesday, September 8> 1959 PAUL HARVEY NEWS He Reaps the Whirlwind .,..,. INDIA RELISH Nehru must be askinghimself, "What did I do wrong?" Understandably terrified, suddenly he finds hi/nself treading water in a pink sea of his own hirelings. The shotgun wedding of communism and democracy which he demanded has collapsed. Khrushchev is foaming at the mouth, charging Nehru with "conspiracy" against his neighbors. Red China legions are massed on the 1800 mile border between Tibet and India and have lunged deep into India at least two points. Red rats have come crawling out of holes all over Calcutta and are in control of large sections of that largest city in India. "What did I do wrong?" Mr, Nehru must be asking himself. Nehru has been entirely friendly to Russia and Red China. i Netiru accepted wheat for free from the United States, -but he paid for the wheat he got from Russia. Nehru has consistently pleaded the cause of Red China before ITS THE LAW the world, urged diplomatic recognition, UN membership. Nehru named pro-RedMenon as his Minister of Defense* Qi'ly because Nehru, frightened, was determined to reassure Russia that he was a "nice gtty." At the Afro-Asfan foreign ministers'..conference In Ban- dung, riehru' sponsored Red China's Chou En-lai. Nehru, no longer motivated by principles, was desperately committed to appease the Red dictators. "Pll be friendly," he was pleading. "I can help you if you'll spare me." Poor, stupid, hypocritical Mr, Nehru. What a classic example he could be to the free world. Watching his present plight should demonstrateagain what Chicagoans have known since Capon*: "You can't do business with the mob without taking orders from it." Now, Red China is in trouble internally and world-wise. Red China's , prestige is down because Russia is carrying the ball all the way to Washington. Red China's people must have their attention diverted from, their empty bellies by a new military adventure. So Red China troops march across the borders of India, build supply roads to support deeper penetration, and in New Dellti, Mr. Nehru insists, "This must .be settled by conferences ..-." It is entirely understandable that he does not want to challenge the well-trained, well- equipped legions of Red China in a 1 military showdown. Not now, • tyr. Nehru's opportunity to side with the free world came and went when he ignored the rape of Tibet and continued to play footsie with the missionaries of this godless religion inside and outside of his once-proud nation. If any other nation, including our own, allows itself to be motivated by fear ... If we turn our backs on the rules of right and wrong that Moses brought down from the mountain and dilute > our allegiance and compromise our principles arid give sanctuary to our enemies .. . We, too, will reap the whirlwind. Stop for School Buses Thousands of school children are now trooping back toschool throughout Texas. Many of them will be transported by school buses. Most people are careful when approaching a school bus which 'may be standing beside the road or school to pick up school children or allow them to alight. However, we have already had some very bad accidents this year because a child or a motorist, or both, were careless at that very tune. Most Texans are awareofthe law which requires a driver to come to a complete stop when overtaking .from the rear a school bus which has stopped to receive or discharge school children. After stopping immediately behind the bus, he is then allowed by law to proceed past same at a speed "which is prudent not exceeding ten (lO)miles per hour, and with due caution for the safetyof such children." What many persons do not realize is that the very same rules applies when MEETING a stopped school bus. While everyone is interested in protecting our children, unthinking violators of this simple safety rule greatly outnumber those who comply. Failure to THE ^RAIOSPORT FACTS ESTABLISHED IMS .J.V.ES s.

Following an accident in which some child is injured or killed, the penalties are naturally much more serious. Although the above rule does not always apply when passing a stopped school bus in a business or residential district of a town, the necessity Kr extreme caution even in those locations is obvious. " » When it comes to overtaking and passing mftving vehicles, exercise of ordinary common sense will generally keep a driver within the law. For instance;-when passing a car it is only common sense to proceed on past it a-safe distance before cutting back to the right, side of the highway. Also, any driver would realize the danger of increasing his speed while another is attempting to pass him. In the same category is the prohibition against passing on the right under most ordinary conditions. ' Of course, you may legally pass on the right in *« few .specific instances, such as when the vehicle overtaken is making or about to make a left turn, or upon a one-way street with two or more lanes, or upon a four- lane highway. • . ._ However, our traffic laws state that even when passing. on the right is allowed, it shall be done only under conditions 'permitting such movement 1 - in safety. ,. ... And, in no event should such passingbe accomplished by driving off the pavement or main- traveled portion of the roadway. Familiar to all are the no passing zones designated by dash lines placed to one side of the center stripe on our highways. Not so well known are the restrictions against crossing the center line when approaching within 100 feet of or when traversing any intersection or railroad grade crossing. A driver should never cross the center line of a highway when the left side of the road is not clearly visible arid free of on- N EW YORK--Today I eat a little crow. Today coming traffic.

Sananikone began throwing the leftists out of government and early this year obtained special . •powers to clean up the job.

Tim is a U.

Never have more elaborate plans been laid to insure the safety of a foreign visitor. Aware thai Khrushchev is any thing but a popular figure in this country, officials are doing everything possible tr eliminate any chance of an "Incident" during his 13-day visit which begins Sept. 15. "If anything should happen to this man while tie is on American soil, the consequences coulc 3e very serious." explained one official. Security preparations began as soon as Khrushchev's visit was announced last month. They art inder the overall direction of the State Department's Office of Security, a small but highly efficient organization that extends to dislinguishei foreign visitors the same kind of vigilandprotec- tion that the Secret Service give} to the. President pf the United States. ; : ' The exact number of specially trained agents on the Security Office staff is secret, but it can be said that they constitute only a tiny fraction of the total manpower required for guarding a; visitor like Khrushchev. ' : . "Our role is three-fold," a spokesman said, "First, we participate in planning the itinerary, and try to eliminate any potentially Uangcrou: situations. .•' ........ j "Second, we coordinate the efforts of local police departments, who provide inostof the manpower and do most of the hard work of checking out places the Premier will visit, etc. '••'• "Finally, if something goes wrong in spite of all our precautions, we provide the body." . , What did he mean by that last macabre phrase provide the body?
