§ll« JTUlt rriday, January /g, Editorial* — Ike, Kennedy Side-By-Side For the first time in American history photographs of an incoming and outgoing president appear together in a feature page that will soon appear in The Sun. The side-by-side photographs of President Dwight D. Eisenhower and President-elect John F. Kennedy signify their bi-partisan support of the effort, represented by the advertisement, to stimulate public awareness of and support for the program for Americans presented in the report of the president's Coc- mission on National Goals. The advertisement provides a summary of the goals presented in the report as those America must strive for during this critical period in world history when we are challenged by the Communist drive for domination, the aspirations of impoverished millions in the undeveloped nations, and by the urgent problems of our own free society. Emphasis is on the contribution every individual American can make toward reaching our national goals. Prepared by The Advertising Council as a public service, the advertisement has been offered to newspapers throughout the United States. Publication in this paper is part of its contribution toward attain- mea of the goals set forth. An earlier advertisement prepared by The Advertising Council, on the same theme, and published in national magazines, has already resulted in *. heavy demand for full copies of the report, entitled "Goals for Americans," which is now in its second printing, Inventive Individualism Has the frequently lampooned eccentric inventor finally come into hia own? The president of a Chicago research organization told a meeting of automotive engineers that it is the putterer, the tinkerer and the home workshop addict who comes up with innovations, not the organization researcher who contemplates his future from a polished desk in an auto- mationized office. Organization, efficiency, subdued office clatter and conferences on systems and procedures are not conducive *o inventive creativeness, yet that is the environment in which most inventors work. The Society of Automotive Engineers International Congress in Detroit was cautioned by an inventor, now president of a research consultant firm, that conforming to present ideas, techniques and taboos is the researcher's' worst enemy. Many corporations force conformity upon their research department* disregarding the impact of management personnel who advanced through the ranks of industry by their own nonconformity. The paradox seems to lie in getting the boss—who was responsible in large part for current policies—to realize that evolution whether in business or the humanities, relies upon every adopted idea as a springboard for future changes. An advancing society, by the very competition within itself, is dependent upon a continual osmosis of new ideas from tfre creator's' brain to the drawing board, to the laboratory and then either to the production line or the scrap heap. Unless research effervescence continues to bubble through industry's veins, no company, individual or society can hope to improve its relative position. Leaders of industry might take a look at their own research, departments and contemplate that it was a salesman who invented the safety razor, two musicians who invented color film, an undertaker who produced the dial telephone and a veterinarian who inflated the first pneumatic tire. Other Views Editors Spuk- OAK BIDGE OAK MDOiEK For years most of the newsprint on which American newspapers were printed came from Canada, During World War H, Canadian newsprint became scarce and the price roee sky high. After the war, with the bind continuing, additional newsprint plants in the United States were established. It was because of one of these new plants, that at COOML River, Ala., that the establishment of The Oak Ridger was possible. In 1948, when negotiations were underway for The Rldger's organization, newsprint was not at all easy to come by. The Oak Ridger owners, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred G. Hill, became stockholders in th* Coosa River venture, thus assuring an adequate supply for their new venture. In the decade since, not only the Coosa River newsprint plant but also a large Bowaters Southern Paper Corp. plant at Calhoun, Tenn. — near Chattanooga — has been established. ot^ Wednesday, Bowaters held formal dedication for Tennessee's first industrial tree seedling nursery at Vonore. Thafs not far Iron here — between Maryville and Madisonville on Route 441. Trees from this nursery will eventually furnish the raw materials for newsprint from the Bowaters plant While 15 years ago it was almost certain that your daily paper was printed on a product made from trees grcavn as far away as Canada, in the future it is quite likely that your paper will be printed on newsprint made from a tree as close as Vonore. The industry has undergone a sort of revolution and it is to East Tennessee's and The South's advantage that this revolution has resulted in the establishment of a newsprint industry here. TALKING ABOUT POPULATION EXPLOSION Drew Pearson Says- WASHINGTON — This town presents a picture of pleasant pandemonium. It's agog with rumor, afloat with reservationless Democrats, churning with rivalry to be closest to the throne . . . Hospitable hostesses are chasing beds to sleep Teraiesse Williams, John Steinbeck and the other 300 intellectuals whom Kay Halle sold to JFK as special last - minute inauguration guests — Society matrons are jeaously wondering how Jane WT>eeler, beautiful wife of the RCA representative, managed to snare the new President for his first dinner — only eight hours after he takes the oath. Other hostesses - with - the - mostes'. are wondering why the K's don't want to dine in their new official home with its retinue of liveried servants, its beautiful state dining room, its well-stocked White House larder . . . The delightful, slightly harassed Jane is also wondering why she let herself in for such a dinner. It was to be only the Kennedy family. But what a family! After the guests list rolled up to 100 she found that she had to include Bobby Kennedy's brothers - in - law, the Skakels; then came the problem of the Frank Sinatra retinue which Pat and Peter Lawford imported from Hollywood. Jane finally drew the line at Sammy Davis, even if Jack's sister Pat had bussed him and called him cute at his wedding to Mae Britt ... Nat "King" Cole was invited instead. THE TURMOIL increases. It's pleasant turmoil. Nobody really sore at anyone. After all you don't elect a Democratic President every year, especially the youncest in history. A lot of worries, though. Maj. Gen. C. K. Galley worries about the horses. Never been so many horses in any previous parade. So there must be an ambulance for horses. Plenty of ambulances for people who fail out along the line of march, but for the first time in history there is also a horse ambulance . . . Another first: First Catholic president in history, youngest elected President in history, first horse ambulance in history . . . Still another precedent: The Russians, for the first time in Communist history, offered to send a special, top-ranking envoy to the Kennedy inauguration. The offer was turned down . . . Other people are worried about beds. Not for horses. Horses will be bedded down at the Rosecroft. raceway and various Maryland stables. But with the deluge of Democrats pouring into a city which hasn't one empty bed in any hotel, maybe cots in schoolrooms are the answer ... There's a lot of worry — about beds, about horses, about who'll go to which party. But nobody seems to worry much about Ambassador Menshikov's polite, insistent suggestion that he has important problems to discuss with the new administration. Almost everyone is happy — but not even-one. Stenographers who gave up their time for JFK, volunteers who worked long hours every night mailing out inaugural tickets were not unhappy when told they couldn't even get a free ticket. They knew the budget was tight, that Chairman Ed Foley had even persuaded the U. S. treasury to forgive $75,000 of amusement tax money on inaugural tickets . . . But they are unhappy when they look up at those TV stands, heated, insulated, built for the TV networks hy the Inaugural Committee — free. Cost to the committee: close to 590,000 . . . And a volunteer worker can't even get a free parade ticket! . . . The networks have sold out all their commcr^ cial time, will make a killing ... On the morning after his sjon was elected President, old Joe Kennedy vowed the new administration would do something about the highhanded policies of the TV networks. Instead, Leonard Reinsch, the Democrats' TV adviser, handed this bonanza to the networks. Reinsch is president of the Carolina bi'oadeasting Co. As Comrade Khrushchev would say: "Like putting a goat to mind the cabbage patch." . . . Khrushchev's ambassador, meanwhile, has been up to see Adlai Stevenson, dined with Dean Rusk before anyone knew he was to be Secretary of State. has been quietly, insistently making it clear that there are mutual problems to discuss — soon, Bible Verse FOR GOD so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

This process began with the "task force" reports prepared for Kennedy in the period between election and inauguration. But a report is not enough. The new President has already begun to pick and chose what he wants of this professor's ideas or that expert's plans. And he has discovered that among the touchiest. yet most important, areas where solid thinking and firm direction are needed is foreign aid — how much, how spent, and where. The bloom has faded from foreign aid. Congress pays lip service to the concept, but the unfavorable balance of payments (with its drain of dollars) has given spokesmen for restraint a powerful argument. It will no longer be possible for any Chief Executive to ask for what amounts to a blank check. President Kennedy, and his floor leaders in the House and Senate will have to justify every item in the appropriation Thp old arguments about America's "responsibility" to the free world wiii get sympathetic attention from only x few legislators — whatever their party. A new approach to foreign aid must be worked out, if the Congress and the people are to support the Administration. It must be based on U. S. interests, say the specialists, and go beyond the needs of the underdeveloped countries. Cash aid to the new African nations, to much of Asia, and to Latin America has won us precious few friends and is quickly forgotten when the siren call of nationalism is heard. Foreign aid planners in the New Administration have begun to think in strategic terms. The Soviets have long since employed Intelligence methods to determine what areas of the world are vital to the United States, what areas are important, and wha.t areas serve us little or no purpose. Being Marxists, they have thought in economic and geopolitical terms — and their major thrusts in recent years have been aimed at those spots where we can most be hurt. The United States, disregarding the lessons it learned during World War II, has tended to think in sentimental cliches — or to respond to Soviet action by delayed counteraction. As a starter for any coordinated and strategic foreign aid program, the President's advisers have been asked to turn to a report prepared in 1942 by the Joint Intelligence Committee for the Joint Chiefs of Staff on "Vital Economic Areas." The study needs updating, but the basic facts and ideas are there for the use of our planners. Idea No. 1 is that, rich as the United States remains, it lacks a number of tremendously important strategic materials if its industrial and defense potential is not to be destroyed in hot or cold wartime. The sources of these materials must be developed and protected from Communist en- croachent. Idea No. 2; Western Europe, North Africa and East Africa are almost totally worthless to the United States when it comes to strategic raw materials. Our ties to the NATO nations are psychological, emotional, and military. But we can still grow dewy- eyed over Rome. Paris, and London — and continue to maintain the bases Western Europe has leased us out of its own enlightened self-interest — without committing ourselves economically, Applying the same kind of thinking to Asia, we find that China can serve us very little — however much we may want to do 1o liberate its people. Though a friendly Chinese government could supply us witli antimony and tungsten — both these items are available in other parts of the world. Iron ore. however, is in increasingly low domestic supply. We can count on Canada, but what about Venezuela, which is rich in high-grade ore, as I have seen with my own eyes. On the other hand, India ranks high among the vital economic areas, however unfriendly her "neutralism" may be. In the production o stee, manganese is essential — and India has it. Either we arrive nt some working arrangement with the petulant tyranny of Prime Minister Nehru or we use our foreign aid to develop sources in such countries as Brazil and the Philippines to supply our needs. At present, we are almost completely dependent on India for another strategic raw material — mica. Our copper comes from Chile, our ;in from Malaya or Bolivia, our industrial diamonds from Brazil or South Africa — the South Africa which, for domestic political reasons, wo must bp hostile to. Bauxite, for the manufacture of aluminum, has been discovered in large cnianH- tios in the West Indies — and this ties our foreign aid to our diplomatic offensive against Fidel Castro's Cubn. which threatens the entire Caribbean. West Africa is rich with mineral resourses important to the U. S. Harvard Bulletin Announces Birth CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Note as it appear? in the current Harvard Alumni Bulletin: "John K.

Analysis Of The News By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON (AP)-It was a sentimental journey and a different kind of President. On Feb. 17, 1953, when President Eisenhower held his first news conference after taking office, reporters jammed into the hi«;h - ceilingod room id the old Stute Department building near the White House. He was 62 then and he seemed unsure of himself and tense. Wednesday, eight years and 192 news conferences later, reporters jammed into the same room to " see and talk with the same man, now for the last time as President. He was 70 now and very sure of himself. And he was at ease. The reporters didn't really go looking for news. They didn't expect much and, as it turned out, there wasn't. Eisenhower had only three days left in office and there was no reason to think he'd light a firecracker. They went for various reasons, besides asking questions and jotting down answers. For instance, they were curious, remembering how he had looked in his first meeting with reporters as President, to see how he looked in the finale. But there was also a sentimental reason for jam-packing Wednesday's news conference. Somehow by this big turnout the reporters wanted to wish him a hearty gooffoy. In the end they never said the word goodby at all. They just stood up in respect and applauded as he walked out quickly, his hands high in that familiar gesture of good will he always used when standing in the back of an open car to greet crowds in New York, London, Paris, New Delhi. But time and the presidency had wrought changes in Eisenhower. At that first news conference Eisenhower, fresh out of a lifetime in the Army and still a greenhorn in the intricacies of government, faltered as he tried to answer the questions flung at him. It was painful, so painful this writer, sitting in the hack row, gripped his hands together, wish- ing Eisenhower could do better or that the collective wish of the newsmen would help him to. He was indeed ill at case. You wouldn't piess il, of course, if you went hack now and rend Uie transcript of that first news conference put out by the White House at the time. It has no direct quotes. It said Eisenhower said this or Eisenhower said that. All the uncertainties had been eliminated by avoiding the direct quotes. Wednesday Eisenhower, after eight years of government, was cheery", sure of himself, untense and fluent. His sentences still .uol jumbled a bit but no more than any man's might in any conversation. Perhaps most remarkable v)f all was this: Wednesday Eisenhower, w h o had a heart attack in 1955, a stomach operation in 1956 and a minor stroke in 1957, was not only pink-cheeked but appeared in every way to be in excellent health. One thing was sure: He was in good spirit, as a man might be expected to be just a few days before laying down the burdens of the presidency and knowing he was as well-liktd at the end as he was at ihe beginning. Texas' Oldest Weekly Goes Into 111th Year HUNTSVILLE (AP)—The oldest weekly newspaper in Texas, the Huntsville Item, began its lllth year of continuous publication Thursday. There was no fanfare. The Item was established in 1850 by George Robinson whose son. Fred, later established the Waco News-Tribune. William R. Woodall has been co- publisher and general manager of the weekly and its affiliate, the Item Stationers, since 19-to. Don Reid Jr., noted for his coverage of executions at the Texas penitentiary here and his fight against capital punishment is 'he editor and has been associated with the wekly since 1937.

The four club bid is a slam try because If we were interested in only a game contract we would bid four spades directly. The eventual contract depends on what partner docs over the cucbid. (0 2*0.
