Editorial Glowing Outlook CPACE ENTHUSIASTS, when confronted by a "Wihy-spend- all-that-money-just-to-put-a-man-on-the-moon-when-there-are- so-many-things-that-need-to-be-done-right-here - on - earth - like- cancer-for-instance? type, talk a lot about the industrial "fallout" from the nation's space program. Usually they mean new products and new techniques that have practical applications in fields other than space. But some times the fallout is in the form of an unexpected shot in the arm for an industry that has been around for a long time. One example is neon gas making, which was never exactly a mass production industry. Although neon is used in tens of thousands of signs around the country, even a giant sign contains only a small amount What neon there was sold for 50 tents a cubic foot. Then NASA's Lewis Research Center in Cleveland sent out a call for 100,000 cubic feet of the stuff to be used in work on a nuclear rocket engine. No one could supply that much until a new method of manufacturing it was devised. The cost of neon then dropped to about 1% cents a cubic foot While this transformation of the neon industry Is unlikely to bring about a reordering of contemporary society, the story Is one more example of how tricky it is to try to predict just what changes space needs will work in our daily lives. • • • Washington Notebook AUSTRALIAN LEADER, KENNEDY: SAME TIE By WASHINGTON STAFF Newspaper Enterprise Assn. WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Australia's Labor party leader Arthur Calwell was able to match Irish ancestry with President John F. Kennedy when he called at the White House to pay his respects. Calwell's grandfather migrated from Ireland to Australia about the same time Kennedy's grandfather migrated to America. The brother of Calwell's grandfather migrated to the Unted States and settled near Harrisburg, Pa. The Australian political lead er—who just missed becoming prime minister by one vote in the House of Representatives— hasn't been in the United States for 17 years. He stopped off in Pennsylvania to renew ties with his American cousins. ARMY CHIEF of Staff Gen. Earle G. Wheeler, reminiscing before the American Legion convention in St. Louis, Mo., observed that: "Those of you who are army veterans will recall that your lot in war was determined largely by three ever-present factors: the enemy, the weather and the terrain. "You may recall, also, that the enemy always seemed to oc cupy the high ground in posi- tons that were difficult to lo cate; that the weather ran heavily to rain, heat or cold, and the terrain over which you moved invariably tended to be uphill, consisting of either wet or dry mixture of earth which both the dictionary and the soldier call mud and dust, respectively." The general added, "the die tionary probably describes them in more refined terms than the soldier does." The Rough Road to '64 Today In History By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Tuesday, Aug. 6, the 218th day of 1963. There are 147 days left in the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1945, the first offensive atomic bomb was dropped by the United States on Hiroshima, Japan, late in World War II. When Japan re< fused President Truman's offer of a chance to surrender, a sec ond bomb was dropped two days later on Nagasaki. On this date: In 1777. one of the American Revolutionary War's bloodiest battles took place at Oriskay ny, N. Y. In 1806, Napoleon ordered dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire. In 1889. the Sioux reservation of 11 million acres in Dakota was ceded to the United States. In 1926, Gertrude Ederle of the United States became the first woman to swim the English Channel. In 1954, death came to Emi lie Dionne, 20, one of Canada's famed quintuplets. Ten years ago: Actor-singer Dick Haymes was arrested for deportation to his native Argentina for violation of U.S. immigration laws. Five years ago: Australia's great distance runner, Herb Elliott, ran a record mile in 3:54.5 at Dublin, Ireland. One year ago: Former President Eisenhower described the Kennedy administration's space program to land a man on the moon as a "mad effort to win a stunt race." rizrv •y Kate Otann School Of Experience •TALKING TO 50 PRIZE-WINNING newspaper carrier boys from all over the United States at the conclusion of the second annual "Operation Enterprise" week in Washington, Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare Anthony J. Celebrezze told one of his own experiences as a newsboy in Cleveland, Ohio. After selling a copy of the Cleveland Press to one of his regular customers one day, young Tony Celebrezze realized that he had been handed a penny and a dime for the two-cent paper. Wondering whether he should keep the change as an intended tip or to let his customer know that he might have made a mistake, Tony finally decided to run after the man and tell him. The man thanked him, pocketed the dime and walked on. , Back on his corner, Tony realized he had lost a cent on the deal. "That taught me always to be alert," Celebrezze told the ] boys. Celebrezze became so alert, in fact, that he became mayor , of Cleveland and is now a member of President Kennedy's cab] lnet. It was a Horatio Alger story come true, with inspiration for \ all the boys. • • • The Traveling Seedsman \ D ESIDES ALL THE OTHER DANGERS which beset the '. farmer, it has grown clear that he has a travel hazard as well. After all, farming has become the third most hazardous . occupation, surpassed only by mining and construction work. ; And it's not improving. ; With the increased size of his operation, in view of the : growth of industrial farms, the farmer has to travel greater : distances in doing his work. More than ever, he's forced to use '•> public roads where his machinery is a peril to himself and all f the traffic. ; Limited access highways unrolling across farmland are one specific example. In many cases, they add miles to the nearest I overpass just to "get across the road." ,* In a recent Ohio survey, two-thirds of the farmers re» ported it was necessary to travel from 1 to 20 miles on the ; highway in reaching various areas of their land. D R. FRANK STANTON president of the Columbia Broadcasting Corp., had a bad time of it when he testified before a congressional committee in favor of permittng radio and television stations to editorialize on the air. "If you were to put the U.S. Constitution up for adoption by this Congress," he observed later, "I don't think you could get even the First Amendment ratified." That's the one thati guarantees freedom of speech. GEN. J A V A N T O Nath Chaudhuri, chief of staff of India's army, came to the United States at the invitation of American army officers who are advising him on equipment and training to hold back the Red Chinese. He picked June because it is the monsoon season back home. But he hit Washington in a week of 95-degree temperatures with the humidity near the 100 per cent mark. His observation: It's worse than the monsoons." Asked what American military equipment India was buying, Gen. Chaudhuri replied: "Helicopters are no good at high altitudes. Trucks and jeeps are no good in the mountains because there are no roads. But we've bought Missouri mules from almost every country that had any, except in the United States."
