THE PARIS/TEXAS, NEWS TUESDAY, OCT. 11, 1960 Why Aren't Charges of Colonialism Turned Against Tyrant Khrushchev? \Ve are still veiling for an adequate reply on the part of the American delegation to Premier Khrushchev's cynical and grot&sque demand for immediate independence for si! colonial Sreas, Who does this man think he is fooling with such gestures? Does he suppose that any of the" statesmen v.-ho heard him at the United Nations, or any informed person in the world for that msiter, is ignorant 25 to ivhat the colorJal areas of the -.vorld are today or where? Does he imagine that because 'Britain. France, Ho'land, Belgium and to a small degree Spain and Portugal have held colonial possessions in this century f every one vrho reads of this "demand" will think of them? '.' The fact is, of course, that virtually ail the co'onJai territories these nations have had are now independent or on the verge of obtaining thier freedom with the full acquiescence of their former masters. "The colonial areas of today are held in the tight 2nd bloody grip or the Communists. Let's take them up chronologically since 1839. First Russia occupied Lithuania. Latvia and Estonia along v.'ilh the eastern hah' of Poland. All were incorporated bodily into the Soviet state. Then toward the end of World War II. Russia occupied the remainder of Poland. Eastern Germany. Czechoslovakia, Hungary. Romania and Bulgaria and subverted Yugoslavia and Albania. A3!' but Yugoslavia are Soviet satellites today — Soviet colonies. In the Far East communism conquered mainland China and North Korea and North Viet Nam were shallowed up in the new colonialism. Meanwhile Indonesia, India and the former Italian colonies became free. France has diverted herseH of most of her colonial empire—a dozen African states formerly French have been, admitted to the United Nations this month. Western coIonia Us m is virtually gone. But -.vhile the European nations vrere granting independence to hundreds of millions of people, communism vras conquering even more hundreds of millions. Indeed, the history of Russian imperialism goes back much farther than the second World War. Moscow* conquered scores of formerly independent states over a period of hundreds of years. Many of these were older political entities than Muscovy, all had their separate languages, culture and traditions ana some enjoyed a higher level of civilization. The number of these subjugated peoples—the "colonial'' peoples of today— is too great to enumerate. We will only add to those already mentioned these few, quoting from the joint resolution adopted by Congress in 1S59 designating the third week of July "Captive Nations Week'' "Ukraine. White Ruthenia. Armenia, Azerbaijan. Georgia. Idel-l" r a I. Cossakia, Turkestan and others." Those are the colonial areas of today. When will one of our representatives at the United Nations throw the facts into Khrushchev's teeth 0 He's Playing My Tune Another Crackdov/n on DWI Problem New York has joined the growing list of states that are inaugurating stiffer penalties for the drinking driver. The statute which becomes effective then increases the maximum penalties for the first conviction of driving while intoxicated from S100 fine and 30 days in jztt to S500 fine and one year in jail. For driving while under the influence of akohol 35 distinguished .from being ac- iualJy intoxicated, the isw provides mandatory suspension of driving privileges for 60 days. That section of the iaw i= designed to remove from the highways those drivers who have consumed enough alcohol to make them z threat to traffic safetv. but not enough to classify them as legally intoxicated under tests prescribed "by lav,-. The drinking driver is a growing problem. The National Safety Council estimates that drinking drivers were involved in 10.000 of the 32.000 fatal traffic accidents, last year, nearly one-third of the total. The FBI reported recently that in 1739 cities accounting for 56.137.000 population, there were 109.673 arrests for driving while intoxicated in 1959. Small wonder there is a perceptible trend over the country to increase penalties for drunk driving. Texa_3 should sharpen its own teetb for DWI offenders. * * * BACKWARD^BGLANCES -K #• » ^ (From th« Scrapbookt of the loto A. W.

Western Addiction Could Cure Itself WASKLN'GTO.'v, — I thought Senator Lyndon E. Johnson might be csoo-cfaooing south with a bumper crop of strip teasers because the manifest .said his campaign train was carryiflg "bu:;ip- er strips". luTestigation reveakd. however, the Johnson Special is losderd with enough "Kennedy- Johnson" suckers to plaster the bumpers of every automotive vehicle from here to Tallahassee. Past campaigns may have se-en longer trains than this one that is taking the Democratic candidate for Vice President through h i s Southland, but never one more elaborately organized. LBJ out- surpassed the genius for organization that made him a masterful Senate .Majority Leader. The, Johnson Special pulled out of here et 8 A.M. Monday. Reporters arrived shout half en hour ahead of lime with their keisters and portables. If they thought about it at all, they, probably entertained a vague notion that there had beer, some previo u s preparation. But J doubt if any of them Imagined the five weeks of exhausting advance work that preceded them. I got hold of a work sheet, in a way it might be best not to mention, end my eyes really popped. Just to mention one item of advance planning: . The Johnson staff made individual preparations for 1,5« VIPS to come aboard the special ,in five days 2nd ride at least one stop with the candidate. The train is making 50 to 60 jstop;, and at each one an advance jmsn is on the joi». These advance \ agents are doing a measure of ! hedge-hopping so each man will ; handle more than one toivn before {the tetir is over, but still it's tak- jiug thirty of them to carry out the ; schedule as laid down by LBJ. \ The Gargantuan preparatio n s, i directed by Secretary to the Ma- jjority Bobby Baker and his pret- ; ty assistant, if srgaret Tucker, en- i tailed personal consultations wifh ! Democratic leaders of all -whistle: stops. Because even LBJ can't ; make a train elastic, the number •i id be permitted aboard at each jstop had to be limited to fifteen. i By amazing coincidence, each i local leader chose himself right j off the bat, but did an een;e- I meenie-minie-mo for days to sel- lecl the other fourteen.

But the rule I is relaxed if one Is unmasked as | a large campaign c o n t r ibutor | Democratic Senators and Gov'ern- ; ors may ride all the way scr o ts j their states if they want to. but | invitations to come aboard were i ignored by Senators Harry F.

Fear that if pressures build up we might decide to devalue the dollar, and in anticipation of that put a stop to all gold exports. 3. Higher interest rates abroad than can be obtained in this nation. The current outflow of gold is almost solely the result of this third factor. In most foreign nations today interest rates for the same type of investment are higher than in the United States. This is exerting a powerful incentive for the movement of funds to these markets. Fortunately there is no evidence of a loss of confidence in the dollar as such, and no serious student can believe that we are about to devalue our currency. Our ^Vd- cral Reserve authorities, too, are not worried because we still have such a large surplus in relation to our reserve requirements that there is no danger we shall be subjected to a major deflationary force from the gold loss.
