New Boy In School Drew Pearson Reports Bulgaria Becomes Plump Bikini-Land editorials p age 4 Hal Boyle Says; Garden lllty T«l«>t(rniii " Wednesday, August 28, 1963 Nof Good Publicity "Cinney County's high ranking among Kansas countries in highway deaths so far this year isn't publicity to be proud of. While one might shnig it off with "that's the •way the car crushes" — a complacency we rieem to have adopted to the too-many fatal traffic accidents — we must at least voice a concern. So much has been said about traffic safety the phrases have become trite — so oft-repeated they have lost their impact. Speed, carelesssness, intoxication, and sleep nearly all accidents. If drivers would slow down, show consideration for other motorists, never get behind the steering wheel after drinking, and refuse to drive while drowsy, our traffic toll would drop to almost nothing. Any panacea for motorized mayhem has been just so many words. Safer cars, better highways, and speed limits no doubt have helped, but the increased number of vehicles, with powerful engines, almost offset the safety efforts. Most of Finney County's 10 traffic fatalities so far this year could have been avoided, but only by those motorists involved. The responsibility for safe driving is carried by every driver on the highway — and they are the only ones who can cure the sickness. IJli ie COUNTY FAIR time Is here again. . .another year and we did not enter a cherry pie or yeast rolls or anything. And we kind of regret it. * * * LLOYD HAAG has regrets too. "I would like," he said, "to have entered a watermelon. . .but I didn't plant any." * * * "YOU ARE not supposed to cry," scolded a voice from tho big game in the next room, "when you are playing Monopoly." Not even when you land on the Boardwalk and get stuck for hotel rent'.' * * * THERE'S A lot of lullabying going on these days In the 500 block on Slocvkly, and three baby girls have a monopoly on it. Virgil and Avril Craig, Joe and Joan Tennessen, and Pete, and Pal Rome who live in the block brought home new daughters within :i period of a week or so earlier this month. Birthday parties in years to come could well be a triple-headers — and the guest list could easily be filled without going beyond the block. "Every child has friends or enemies within shouting distance out here," said one of the parents. A recent estimate named •((.> children, give or take one or two,. in the Stoeckley "500" crew. * * * AND THIS seems the appropriate time to report on the number of Craig daughters, . .it's a tradition in this space. The newe,sl, Catherine Ann, brings the count to six. . .and everyone of them an experience to know. The Craigs also have two sons. *• * * ^yE HAVEN'T heard it, but we read the title of this song: "Where did Robinson Crusoe Go With Friday on Saturday night'/" d. h. Memory Is Best Escape NEW YOIIK (AP)—Let's take a look hack along the way. When the world is too much with us, the best escape is to recall n time when things were different. Your memory is still hitting on all night cylinders if you can remember when— Movie actresses wCrc expected lo have class and stature—like Clare Kimball Young. Shirley Temple's dimples had been seen by more people than the Grand Canyon. People said Enrico Caruso had a voice so powerful that when he sang in a small room it would break the windows. It was part of the act in a Chinese re.slaurant for the waiters to pri'toml they couldn't understand English well. That kind of lent Hie place a slnuldery sense of mystery. The only people who ale pizza pics were those just over from the old country. Hin-Tin-Tin earned more take- home pay than Lassie. Th« greatest test of a middle- niji>d man's athletic ability was having to climb into the upper berth of ii Pullman car. You could always achieve a sound social position in the community hy playing a good game of checkers. No husband had to bother about keeping his wife's cigarettes lit —as good women didn't smoke in public. No woman needed more than 55 to go to the grocery store, because who could carry home that much worth of groceries? The common man was in favor of high income taxes beca.'.ise he felt only (he rich would ever have to pay them. Only cowboys wore high heels. The people In comic strips were always slipping on banana peels, or being hit by flying bricks —but they ih'ver seemed to have any emotional problems. It cost less to spend a lull year in college than it now takes to send a small, squirmy child to camp for ;\ month in the summer. Many high school seniors could write in Latin an essay containing fewer misspelled words than one written in Knglish by a modern student today. If a girl had a tan ><m knew Mie was from the country. City girls prided themselves on their milk-white complexions. People in most small towns never locked the front door unless they \UTI' .miing on a long trip. You could impress the average •gathering by whipping out a snapshot of yourself taken on top of Pike's Peak. That let them know you were somerne who'd really been around. Sore Winner FLINT, Mich.

BULGARIA - This is (he last communist country to come out from behind the American iron curtain. Until recently, U.S. passports were stamped "Not Good for Bulgaria," and if you olecletl to come here you forfeited the right of slate department protests if yo-.i got into trouble. Hut while Americans were barred from Bulgaria, the rest of Kurope, both communist and capitalist, discovered some of the best bathing beaches in this part of the world and have made the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria the land of the bikini and plump pulchritude. While Kennedy and Khnish- dicv worry over nuclear tests, those who relax on the "Golden Sands" of Bulgaria argue over nothing more important than the merits of C'oppcrlonc and Nox- em a. When I knew the Balkans after World War r, Bulgaria was a trouble-some, ragtag little kingdom which hated its neighbors and was cordially hated in return. It got mixed up on the wrong side of the Balkan wars, bet wrong on two world wars, and paid the penalty. But today things have changer). There's a new pride in the Bulgarian people, a new cleanliness In their towns, and a certain amount of gaiety that was never here before, ff you talk to a Bulgarian bureau-cral, he'll tell you the reason is communism. If you talk to a western historian, he'll tell you the reason is the end of the Ottoman E mp i r e, which kept Bulgaria tmdcr its graft-ridden rule for about six centuries. Or maybe it's because Bulgaria has enjoyed 15 years of comparative peace. At any rate, it's changed from a steeply Balkan kingdom, to an energetic promoter of tourist trade, Macedonian tobacco, belladonna, sunflower seed, and has even developed a new tomato for export, which it proudly exhibited to Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman when he came through the iron curtain countries recently. Bulgaria is a faithful follower of Nikita Khrushchev's cocxis- ence line, but gripes privately at his economic line. Under the common market plan laid down by the Soviet, Bulgaria is supposed to be the truck gardener for the Soviet. It supplies the fruit and vegetables for Russia. This ujiglamorous assignment doesn't appeal to Bulgarians at all. What they want is undustrial- izalion and more trade with the United States. To that end, Bulgaria recently got a $900,000,000 loan from the Soviet, signed an agreement paying American war claims, and has gone to unusual lengths in cooperating in people- to^pcople friendship. Bulgaria In the old days was a country where peasant women went barefoot and where you frequently saw a woman with her shoulder in the yoke of a plow, an ox at the other side of the yoke, Today, I watched a woman boss a job of paving the city wharf with MacAdam. Twenty men worked under her supervision. The job progressed rapidy. fntp this new woman's word, President Kennedy has sent, as U.S. minister, a vigorous and charming lady diplomat, Eugene Garden City Telegram Published Dally Except Sunrtay and Five Holidays Tnnrly hy TTic Telegram Publishing Company nt 117 East Chestnut Anderson, who has jumped out of the ruts of concentional diplomacy by visiting Bclganian villages, talking to people in the street, and even winning the distinction of being th c first American ever to speak on the Bulgarian radio. On the 4th of July she spoke in Bulgarian to explain the ideals of the American revolution. She also dedicated the American Plastics Exhibition, which drew a record crowd to see plastic toys, plastic kitchen utensils, and a plastic Studebaker and Chevrolet. Mrs. Anderson has become so well known in Sofia that Bulgarians call her "Eugenie" and stop her on the street to say hello. Bulgaria has a lot to learn about attracting tourists, especially when it comes to passport regulations. It took us three hours to get our passports cleared, and it was necessary to carry a pass- port whereever you wenl. When we departed, a buxom Bulgar bureaucrat insisted on charging our ship $19 for telegrams w e never sent, and $30 for a taxi we never used. Furthermore, she refused payment in Bulgarian Iva, demanded dollars instead, and then refused to make change in dollars. Such is the female bureaucracy in this part of the communist world. Men in Good Supply MOSCOW (AP) - Women ont- numiber the men in the Soviet Union by about 20,000,000, but a new Soviet book advises the young girls about landing a husband. The reason, says the b o ok "Women and C h i 1 d r e n in the USSR." is that the number of men under 35 years of age exceeds the number of women. Latin American Envoys Want- Refugees Release PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti (AP) —Eight Latin American envoys have demanded that Haiti guarantee safety of 44 refugees grante t asylum in their embassies here. The diplomats asked the Organization of American States to demand that Dictator-President Francois Duvalier grant (he refugees save exit from Haiti. The refugees include 12 military officers sentenced ;o death in absentia fop an abortive pint to kidnap Duvalier's children in April. Cemetery Caretaker Is Robbed of $180 VERSAILLES, Mo. (AP)—Two masked men robbed a cemetery caretaker of $180 as he mowed grass in Prairie View cemetery north of town Monday. Thc caretaker, Jim Sammons. told Sheriff .1. T. Hull of Morgan County that the pair, wearing black masks, took his money and fled in an old model black car. He said the men were young and one carried a gun. ___ Sill Brown „ ________ L..~...™....... Editor Mnrvln Smith ..
