agijttffl j» M Sunday. January 15, 196 J Editorial* Red Cross Is Worthy Compassion is a universal human emotion. It is current com whenever and wherever people are in need or in trouble. ^_ Webster tells us it is sorrow or pity excited by the distress or misfortunes of another". Sorrow and "pity, however, become truly worthy only when they are put into actioc in the sen-ice of others. The Red Cross annual report for the 12 months ending last June 30, issued this week, is a story of compassion in action. In words, pictures and statistics, it records the work of the millions of our friends and neighbors wao. as Red Cross volunteers and staff members, enabled us to put our sorrow and pity to work in the cause of helping others. Wherever U. S. servicemen were stationed, our Red Cross helped solve personal and family problems and provided financial assistance in emergencies. Wherever rampaging nature disrupted families, brougnt death and injury, or destroyed homes, our Red Cross helped the victims start on the road back to normal living. Tnrough our Red Cross, we supplied about 40 per cent of the whole blood used in this country, one- third of the gamma globulin, one-half of the* serum albumin and nine-tenths of the fibrinogen. Through our Red Cross, we helped assure the health *nd welfare of millions of American families through training in first aid, water safety and home nursing. And we helped prepare youth, through participation in the entire spectrum of Red Cross services, to become tomorrow's family, community and national leaders. As ARC Chairman E. Roland Harriman and President Alfred M. Gruenther state in a preface to the report, these services justify our confidence in the "strength of the American Red Cross for serving the people of our country and for responding to calls for help from other parts of the world." Truly, through our contributions to the Red Cross, we put our compassion into action, helping make good things happen whenever and wherever there is human distress or misfortune. Increase In Crude Oil Production Predicted WASHINGTON (AP)-Th« Bureau of Mines estimates U.S. crude oil production will be up 2.7 per cent this year and domestic demand for an oil* will show an increase ot U per cent Of the total U.S. demand, domestic production win supply 81.9 per cent compared with 8L4 per cent in 1363, toe bureau predicts. To Alvin Hope, president of the Independent Petroleum Association ot America.. Ihe outlook often no promise of any substantial increase in drilling activity in this country. In his estimate, 1361 "promises only moderate growth in demands and production." Other forecasts by the Bureau of Mines: Required new supplies for an oils this year will be 9,983,000 barrels a day, including imports. Exports will drop 4.4 per cent, holding down the rate of increase in demand lor domestic production. A drop ot 1.8 per cent in demand tor residual fuel oil under the 1960 level. The bureau said new natural gas pipelines to the West Coast and import restrictions are expected to curtail use of residual by that percentage. A 9 per cent increase in demand for kerosene, reflecting increased use by commercial jet planes. The bureau said its estimates were based on an anticipated improvement in genera! business Letters To The Editor Editor. The Sun Dear Sir: We have s<>nt the following letter to Robert W.

Phone Companies Seek FCC Action Over New Service WASHINGTON — Telephone operating companies of General Telephone and Electronics Corporation have petitioned the Federal Communications Commission to determine How to divide th<* revenues which would be derived from the Jointly rendered portion of a new long-distance telephone service proposed by American Telephone and Telegraph Company. As an alternativp, the companies asked me FCC to establish the "proper principles and procedures "for th» division of revenues. The petition also requested the commission to suspend the tariff for the new service, called "Wide Area Telephone Service" (WATS', until either of the two alternatives is established. The tariff, filed with the FCC by AT&T on Dec. 16. would become effective Jan. 15, 1961, unless suspended by th» Commission. WATS is designed to provide broader and more flexible service by permitting unlimited or limited long - distance calling within a certain specified area for a flat rate. The subscriber would be furnished a special access iine over which he would originate interstate station - to - station calls to a choice of six zones. He would not be able to receive calls or to make ptTso n-ti>person. collect, credit card, or intrasta'te calls over the special line. The tarriff filed by AT&T would permit WATS calls to any physically infpr - connected telephone located within the defined service areas, regardless of the ownership of the facilities used in completing the call. Pointing out that "Tnere is no effective method by which those non-Bell companies can refuse to complete incoming calls originating in Bell System territory." the General System companies asked that the tariff bo suspended until an agreement is r«»aeh.w]. "Although' intending to use the petitioners facilities for WATS, the B'll System has not made satisfactory provision for compfnsatina; petitioners for thf use of their facilities," the comapnies said.

Several congressional leaders plan to vote this on top of the J25|000 pension he would automatically receive as an ex-President, plus" the S50.000 he will also receive tax-free for expenses, making a total of $25.543 annually. The rank and salary of five. star general were bv Gen. Eisenhower in 1952 when he announced that he would run for President as a civilian. Every- other President of th" United States ha?

HITHERTO, the financial facts regarding the Gettysburg farm hav t . txx:n shrouded in secrecy. But it can now be revealed that the President, has been in partnership with oilman W.

"You'll have to ask the White House." However. E. Donald Scott, president of the Adams County'Board of Commissioners, a P^epublican and former implement dealer, said he had been paid by checks on the Allen-Byars account in the Gf.'ttysburg National Bank. And Victor Re. the Gettysburg contractor who built the $30,000 showplace barn for the Eisen- hr/.ver farms, said that he had be-on paid by checks from a joint Ailen-Byars account. This is the barn which Ike exhibited with pride to President de Gaulle and Premier Khrushchev. \Vhrn I asked R" what fancy qaci^ets the barn had which would make it cost S30.00Q, he he-came somewhat reticent, said it was just a stall barn. "I ought not to be "talking about other people's business," he said. However, he said he had built three smaller barns on the Eisenhower farms. Their cost wa.s around S7.500 to $$.000. also paid out of the Allen-Byars checking account.

The Grand Union or th* Cambridge flag; It was too like Analyzing The News By JAMES MARJ.OW ^ WASHINGTON (Apt — President Eisenhower paints a cheery picture of America. But study groups President-elect John I'. Kennedy created to advise him see a iot more needed than Eisenhower accomplished. Th* outgoing president in his las: Slate of the Union message to Congress Thursday, could have offered programs. But incoming Kennedy w?ll do that. So Eisenhower reviewed America as he sees it and the work of his administration. .No doubt he hopes it will also be Uie verdict of history. He seemed satisfied. At times he spoke glowingly. The following is the contrast between the views of Eisenhower and the Kennedy groups: DEFENSE—AS usual. Eisenhower defended his handling of this, predicted "the near future will hold such wonders as the orbital flight of an astronaut." But the Kennedy groups think Russia wiil beat us with a man into outer space and said this country is Inzginz behind the Soviets in ballistic missiles and outer ipi'.e exploration THE ECONOMY-in this field Eisenhower was both sunny and glum. He praised America's economic progress, admitted "there is iittle room for complacency," said the economy is operating at "high levels" but was concerned about unemployment. But he dirin'r. mention recession. Many economists >ay the country is in one. The Kennedy group suggested the new president act quickly with a batch of emergency measures to get recovery fast. Kennedy has put top-priority on still another stud:/ group's ideas for heipLng both unemployment and depressed areas. HOUSING — Eisenhower seemed to feel pretty good about this field. He said "more houses have been built during the past eight years—over nine million— than during an> previous eight years in history.' 1 But Kennedy's study group suggested broad programs to meet Housing needs of low-income families, of the elderly, of fanners. of college students, plus broad spending for city planning. Last December The Associated Press reported: "Rousting disappointed in 1S60. Demand fell, costs rose, money grew- scarce, and fewer homes went up." EDUCATION — Eisenhower recounted, with apparent pride, what his administration has done in tliis field. But the Kennedy study group on education thought far more is needed. It proposed a vast program of federal aid to schools, amounting to nearly $2.5 billion yearly. "Millions of. children, particularly in certain rural areas and :n the great cities are deprived of nn opportunity to develop talents that are needed both for society and for their own lives," it said. This group called its proposals the minimum for accomplishing the needed "significant uplift" in American education SOCIAL SECURITY AND THK AGED—Eisenhower pointed to progress made in Social Security —the broadening of its coverage and new benefits added—and said this about the need: "New Irgis- Ivion prnvi-.i.-'s for hotter mrd;rvil care for the needy aged. The ad- jiiir.istration recommumipd a major expansion of this effort.' 1 But the administration's recommendations, while they would provide some help for some, wore opposed to linking Social Security to medical carp for the age<1. This is what Kennedy wants to do. His study group, not at all satis- fV"j with the Social Security program as it exists, proposed a iiMjaci expansion of Social Security, public assistance, unemployment pay, medical education. Other Views ——EDITORS SPEAK. THE Tr,'LSA WORLD Thf current unemployment sag Stands at around six per cenf of the nation's qualifier! working force. It is a figure of alarming proportions in a time when the nationnal economy ou^ht to be, and in some areas actually is stable and progressinc;. A number of reasons have b^cn advanced explaining why unemployment is on the rise while business is, if not booming, generally strong and more people have more nionoy in savings th;in at any period in history. The Government through the Commerce and Labor departments, is seeking means for relieving the situation. Among the more important factors under study is who is unemployed and why? A few fa'-ts nerd clear understanding, however, in order Ib.'it panic does not erupt to mar corrective action. First, the jobless rate is not quite as serious as it seems due to the fact married men with families have tho lowest rate of employment. Worse sector in the labor picture is the hii*h rato joblessness among thoso 14 to 2-1 years of a£;o—a factor that is both discouraging and unwholesome to young people just boKinning careers. Yet. thfro is a lesson f"r the youngsters in the unemployment situation. Seymour L. Wolfbein, Deputy Assistant .Secretary of Labor, gave a lessor, in the import- ancp of schooling before a Con- STessional Committee recently: Unskilled workers arc suffering most fr>>m the employment sac*. NVnrly 11 out of 100 unskilled workers. Skilled people, professional personnel and those with craft skills, aren't having much trouble gaining and keeping jobs. For thr yrvmcr people of the nation, thus, there is tho lesson of schooling and training. Those who become discouraged in school, or lacjc »he ambition to km> up their grades in high school and colle?e. are HYP om>s who will suffer most from unemployment cycles in the fub How Do You Stand ? BY BAJIRY GOLDWATEK CA fcMtor, Arta. WASHINGTON—A rrccnt headline capping <i t'nitcfi PJVS.S wire service st-'ipy prociaitnpd disarmament as tly Hope of the world. The s'.iX'y was ; i rcvsiai of our past efforts combined with me suggestion that we nv.sst he willing to coo:*>rate with otiv-r gov ernment-s in the world to c-ffec mutual ch-wrmamert in the n?ar uiure. With the exception of a few power hu.igr 1 ;. 1 men. the u-orld does long for peace, which is the situation the idea of disarmament suggests. But both the headline writer and the wire service story failed to spell out Die condition of understanding which must he achieved in the world before disarmament can become a meaningful reality. For any of the western powers to disarm at this point in history would indr-ed become an invitation to national suicide unless and 'Jnti! certain condition c csn be fulfilled. The United Slates of America cannot afford to disarm until we have an ironclad assurance that the armed might of Russian communism will be diminished proportionately to our r-xiuc'ion in arms. History teaches us that armament races are no more than a symptom of basic disagreement between governments, and unless the basic disagreement between the western world and communism can be resolved, any suggestion of disarmament is illusory and deceptive. The communists are dedicated to the destruction of the western world, by peaceful means if possible, by war if necessary. We cannot by dropping our guard, by diminishing our ability to defend ourselves, create a situation conductive to world peace. In fact, it is probable that any disarmament by the western world will be construed by the Russians as a sign of weakness and an imitation to a communist trust. Let us indeed hope for disarmament, but let us be tough minded and knowledgeable and sufficiently sophist'fat 1 "! '-\ refuse to be deceived by false promises, b Russian propaganda and by meaningless gestures of good will. The West, and particularly the United States of America, possesses the greatest military power in UV \\orld today. It is this power which ha? kf-pt the uneasy peace we h-'rr enjoyed over the last 15 years. It is this power, this military supremacy, which will keep Uv- pence over the next 15 years. Let us then jealously preserve that jjT.vor. let us enhance that power by constant development of now weapons and n^w techniques, not. to wage war against Soviet Itussi;i. bur in order to wage an effective peace. L-'t us ami ourselves militarily, economically and spiritually. Lot us constantly proclaim that we have no quarrel with the Russian people, no <iesicns on Russian territory, no inclination to interfere with the internal affairs of Russia; and having said this, let us also unequivocally proclaim that we will not tolerate interfer- fnce in the internal affairs of ths United States of America, no intrusion by force and violence of Russian communis in the western hemisphere. Let us make it known to the rest of the world that we honor rest of the workd that we honor and cherish freedom, that we will fizht to defend it, that world disarmament is something we hoBf for, but that we have no intention of scrapping our squirrel rifles or destroying our atom bombs so Ions? as the enemy i* determined to shape the world to his will.

This deal occurred In a duplicate tournament. As usual, different contracts were reached at the various tables, but in most cases the final contract was three notrump played by South. West invariably led the queen of hearts, which declarer took with the ace. At most tables, South, led the four of clubs to the ace, East showing- out. Declarer then led the jack of •pades, covered by the king, and taken by the ace. The ten. of clubs return waa covered by the jack and won with the kinjr.

Declarer wound up making nine tricks, instead of six, by virtue of the lead of the eight West ducked the eight, of course, and dummy's ace took the trick. With the club situation now exposed, it waa a relatively easy matter for declarer to bring home the entire club suit and the contract. A spade finesse waa followed by the lead of the ten of clubs, West covering with the jack and dummy winning- with the king. Declarer then crossed to his hand with a spade and led the carefully preserved four of clubs. West's 9-6 was trapped by dummy's Q-7-5-2, and declarer made three notrump.
