editorials fjnrdon City Thursday, August 29, 1963 It's A Wise Father That Knows His Own Bomb For Tighter Grading * real Plains Wheat, Inc., was organized to promote the dovelopmont <rf markets for hard red wheat. In the past five years, Great Plains ha« been •working for these markets, and in doing so has come into contact with many foroifrn buyers, importers, and processors. The story from all corners of the Klob<! has a common current of criticism — imports of U.S. wheat, haven't been up to snuff. Great Plains set up a tfrain standards committee after reali/.iiiR that changes were needed. It was concluded that growers, in deciding if they want changes, must determine if they want standards which will adequately classify the quality of wheat they are producing in terms of final use value, which will maximize their bargaining position in domestic awl foreign trade, and which will help them accomplish their long-range quality objectives. Last week, GPW Presidtent Howard Hardy issued a statement favorable to the proposed standards, and it didn't fake long to smoke out the opposition— which is the grain trade. Thanks to living in the home of GPWs headquarters, we have come in contact with .several foreign grain buyers, millers, agriculture officials and government officials. All were impressed with what they saw here in the Great Plains in the way of wheat production and quality. But. they weren't speaking highly of our wheat which has been exported to their countries. It's clear that something is wrong with the present grading system which allows dirty and damaged grain to flow into foreign ports. Meanwhile, our northern neighbor, Canada, is paying strict attention to what they export, and has established a good reputation among the world buyers. The grain trade's opposition is puzzling. Great Plains Wheat's stand is laudible. Now Purple Grass /~omes now the matter of purple grass. Purple grass is not what the purple cow ate to become purple. This one knows, because no one has over .seen a purple cow. Nor is it a lawn for the purple people cater, who has happily become extinct, like the xcctyl bird. Piurple grass wasn't always purple. Once it was green, and now the scientists are trying to figure how to make it green again. This is timely subject for consideration, for we have reached that season when one more mowing of the lawn seems just too much. The rapture of spring and mucking about the yard long ago was drowned in the rains of June and the heat of July, and now one looks at the lush grass with all the enthusiasm of a small boy glomming the spinach. Obviously what is called for, and has been for years, is a grass that will grow yea high, and then quit. Which brings us back to purple gross. Some Canadian scientists have concocted grass that does indeed mature at two inches height, and then quit. The only problem with it, the stuff comes in purple. Presumably before such a salvation for humanity is unleashed on the public, the technicians will labor mightily to change the color back to green. Which is the way even today's technology bows to tradition. For our tastes, particularly in late August, the stuff could be purple, blue, gold, yellow or even while and we'd take it. So long is it declined to grow. Hal Boyle Says: Holiday Proposed For Management Killer Hearing Date Is Set OLATHE, Kan. CAP) — Lloyd Lee Harsh, 18-year-old convicted killer of a pretty schoolmate, will be returned to Olathe Tuesday for a preliminary hearing of burglay and gand larceny charges.

Drew Pearson Reports Bulgarian Retreat Like Nikito-Tito Hideways NEW YORK (AP)— Some one ha s made the suggestion that, since, we have a national holiday for labor, we should have a national holiday for management, too. Sounds fair enough, doesn't it? If we have a national hot dog month, a national week in which to ponder the juicy virtues of the dill pickle, certainly we can all pause in our tasks long enough to celebrati- a national honor the boss day. Bosses could use a little mural encouragement, some heartfelt appreciation, an annual pat on the back. The employe,- class has been taking it on the chin for some time now. Cauulit between the demands |<i|' increased pay by union.- and demands tor increased profits by stockholders many a lon'elv cunipanv president has wondered whether his split level yacht was worth the price of it all. This is particularly true since the government has begun even to question his j-iuht to use the yacht except when he can prove lie is employing it for the sole purposi.. of li-liiii,.; for more company business. If the idea of a national day to ceU-brate lh t . role of management in (he economy catches on. many will be puzzled just how to ob- erve it. What is the best way to honor the boss? Well, since the worker abstains from work on Labor Hay, it would appear that management should b, allowed f) refrain from man- a-:.'.'ig on national management day. Here are a few tips on how W office Muff can make the Ujss feel they realize ho is important to the firm's endeavor, and that beneath his gruff exterior there beats an honest heart: First, put gin in the office water cooler to help generate a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Wrap his swivel chair in gay, colorful bunting. Kverylxxly tak e a voluntary 15 per cent pay cut for this one day. Insist that he stand at the head of the line during both the first and second morning coffee breaks. As soon as his cup runneth o'er, everybody sit in a circle on the floor while the Iwss tells how much he missed the good old days when he worked f>4 hours a week for the firm for $3.50. It is now 10:50 a.m. It is time to hand the boss his golf clubs, thump him fondly between the shoulder baloVs and tell him, "take the rest of the day off, chief. Happy putting." Then all the employes rush to their desks and work like beavers doing all tins jobs they should have done last week. With no Ixiss around to bother them, they should be finished by noon — in time to go out and join him en masse on the 8th tee. National honor the boss day? It's a grand idea. Why hasn't anybody thought of it before? What's gnoj for the boss can be even better for the bossed.

(Editor's 'note — Continuing his »urvey of the cold war and iti th»w, Drew Pftanon today interviews th* Prime Minister of Bulgaria.) VARNA, BULGARIA — Communist leaders do not object to living in capitalistic surroundings, and Todor Zhivkov, secretary of the Communist Party of Bulgaria and premier of that country, has a summer place on the Black Sea which compares with Tito's private island In the Adriatic and Khrushchev's summer resting spot on the Black Sea. All three, however, share these private estates with other communist loaders. Anyone high up In the party Is welcome. Tito's island is the resort of over a hundred wives, children, and top echelon of Yugoslavia, has an attractive swimming beach wired for sharks, and a series of beautiful macadam roads winding through lanes of olive trees and fields full of deer and pheasants. Khrushchev's Black Sea resort has two guest houses for friends and is surrounded by pine trees. If anything, it is more rugged than Tito's island. Zhivkov of Bulgaria has taken over a palace, once occupied by the kings of Bulgaria which stretches in beautiful lawn and well-kept terraces down to the Black Sea. Its sweep to the sea Is reminiscent of the home with gold bathroom fixturs once occupied by Joseph P. Kennedy, father of the president, Which swept down to the Potomac just outside Washington. At fhe bottom of the rolling lawn arc two bathing beaches, used by both the servants and party leaders who vacation at the one-time royal palace. Zhivkov does not live in the palace himself, but in an apartment house to one side, apparently the one-time servants quarters for the Bulgarian roval family. Other vacationing of/idals live there too. The Bulgarian prime minister is a man of 52, with twinkling eyes and a contagious smile that reminds you somewhat of Niklta Khrushchev. He speaks with the same frankness as Khrushchev and has been his firm supporter in the policy of co-existance. Thii policy wM not fixed without considerable debate inside the ranks of the Bulgarian Communist Party, and for some time — up until 1957 — Bulgaria clung to the No. 1 disciple of Stulin, Vulko Chervenkov. Finally, after hectic and prolonged debate, and after Khrushchev made a personal visit to Bulgaria in May 1962, to give his personal endorsement to Zhivkov, the latter emerged as the undisputed leader of Bulgaria. He has followed a thorough de-Stalinization program, elevated new and younger party leaders, anf lined up 100 per cent with Khrushchev against Red China. Even recently, the Communist Party was shown not to be the monolithic organization the west considers it to be. When Russia and Yugoslavia patched up their relations in December 1962, Premier Zhivkov followed with a trip to see Tito in January. This was supposed to mark a friendly rapprochement between these two communist neighbors, long bitter enemies. But no Bulgarian statement of friendship followed. The Bulgarian communists were bitterly divided. Finally the Yugoslav ambassador called at the foreign office to ask why the delay. Only then was the statement of friendship issued. When I asked Premier Zhiv- kov what he had done before he got into (politics, he replied: "For twelve years I was a printer. Then in 1938 I took up revolution as a profession. I w a s most unreliable and dangerous. ' I was imprisoned by the then prime minister, Georiev, and severely tortured. Later, however, wo became good friends and he came around to our way of thinking. In 1945 he e v en signed the order expropriating private property, in- cluding his own private property'." Tliis and other questions, especially the problem of peace or war with Red China, the United States, and Russia were discussed quite frankly by the head of this energetic communist country as will be set forth in a subsequent column. Missouri Anticipates 14,750 Enrollment COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The University of Missouri begins its 125th academic year Sept. 8 with an anticipated enrollment of 14,750—750 more students than it had a year ago. The School of Mines and Metallurgy at 'Rolla is expecting a registration of 3,700, up 200. HJk e A FAIR is still fun but they surely are more fatiguing than they used to be. We went to the county fair this week — to enter the kid's exhibits, to slice onions and press hamburger cakes, to get free balloons and rescue them, to hold kids up to drinking fountains, to wait endlessly while the school art exhibits were examined minutely, to keep the least one from crawling in with the lambs and pigs, to answer questions, to respond again and again to "Mommy, look at this," to wrestle the two-year-old in the grandstands, and to steer the troops down the midway, which, while it still has excitement, certainly has lost a lot of its appeal and glamour, without squandering all of the grocery money. Fun, yes. but a far cry from the olden times when we went to the Thomas County Free Fair with a carload of cousins and our good-time uncle to spend a day and a summer's savings. And we returned with every cent spent — but not our energy. It never gave out back then. d h.

He started on a Monday morning and was here on Thursday morning. It was a surprise visit, because Jimmy's mother, the former Naomi Kersey knew it'd be better not to notify her parents of the boy's plans. Jimmy would've had a companion but his twin brother, Bruce, had to stay home for football practice. This week the Kerseys saw their grandson off on the bus — with u ticket for all the way home. * * * A FINE, Siamese kitten has strayed its way to residence at the Claude Robinson, 901 N. 7th.
