An Afe^Mfe !•*••• Dnp*Ml S?il*» J. tvflHnitt r.rUn ( fmdKHn Famous Clipper Ship One traditional specialty of Britons is "their love of the sea. In the days of the sailing ship they were supreme, except for occasional rivalry from our own country. There were famous -races among the clipper Ships to see which would bring back to England the year's first cargo of tea or grain. Foremost among the tea clippers was the Cutty Sark, built in J.869, jvhich held the record for a day's run/ln one 24-hour period it made 363 knots, or more than 400 miles. The name, a Scottish phrase meaning "short shirt," came from a poem by Robert Burns. Competition from steamships that used the Suez Canal forced the Cutty Sark out of the tea trade in 1879, but she carried wool from Australia until 1895. After various changes of ownership she was brought to Greenwich, England, in 1954. Now .she has been placed there on • permanent exhibition. She will serve as •' a memorial to British 'seamen, especially those who rescued their army at Dunkerque. Refitted as she was in the days of wooden ships and iron men, the Cutty Sark will call up for'many the romance of the past and will serve as an inspiration to all beholders. Puddle Jumpers For some years, automobile manufacturers in this country have not made small cars such as the old-time coupes. Instead they have concentrated on large, long automobiles, built for horsepower, comfort, and conveniences. The facts seem to have justified this practice; for obviously, if as many people buy expensive cars as used to buy low- priced ones, the manufacturers will make more money. Some people were not pleased with this policy, however. They showed it in a practical way by buying small foreign cars. Reports'state that the foreign models available in this country are spoken for many months ahead. Now the U. S, manufacturers have seen a great light. They have noticed that some sales are eluding them. Ford and General Motors.announce that their dealers will be allowed to sell tiny cars guch as those popular abroad. The critics of these cars may call them '.'puddle jumpers," but apparently there Is a good market for them. Otherwise the big manufacturers would not be getting ready to jump into this particular puddle.' Going to the ball game is good for a fellow—all that fresh air and that healthful exercise all. afternoon passing soft drinks and red hots to the people seated down the aisle. A baseball umpire always has the last' word—unless he's married.

AND STILL GOING STRONG Drew Pearson Sayi: Ambasudor Bohlen predicted deep stirring in•Me Hu»l«; U. S. hai loafed on tte't policy of people . to - people frlendihip; Thto policy 1> best guarantee against war. . WASHINGTON. — Some weeks "before he left Moscow, Ambassador Chip Bohlen reported deep- r o o t ed churning , inside Russia. He connected this; with industry and I domestic economy, predicted that because ot this in' aer turmoil there was no danger of war with Russia for many years to come. In - another report, Bohlen expressed the conviction that the Russian people had become so sold on peace that it would take intensive propaganda for their leaders in the Kremlin to convert' them to war. He also expressed the view that the leaders in the Kremlin were convinced modern war would be so suicidal to both sides that no one would win; therefore Russia's future lay in a peaceful though vigorous struggle to control men's minds. 'These reports had already been used by Harold Stassen as a guidepost for his arms talks, were one reason Stassen has believed the Russians are ready for a genuine arms agreement. The reports are now being reviewed further in the light of the Kremlin crisis. Net conclusions: That deep trouble is stirring inside Russia; That the Russian people as well as the satellites must be given the alternative^ more freedom or else, strict Stalinist suppression; That the more-freedom school has won out. Helping His Secretary Congressman John J. Hhodes (R., Ariz.) has run afoul of an unwritten rule of the House of Representatives whereby Congressmen refrain from criticizing the pork barrel projects of fellow members, especially when they are from different states. Rhodes took the unusual step of writing a circular letter to members of the House Interior Committee, asking them to vots against a $32,220,000 irrigation project in the district of Rep. 0. C. Fisher (D., Tex.). The Arizona lawmaker called Fisher's bill a "thinly disguised municipal, water project" for the city of San Angelo, and claimed it was not a proper assignment for the Bureau of Reclamation. Naturally this did not please Congressman Fisher. When word ot Rhodes' letter reached him, he ditl some quiet checking, then sent out a letter of his own. "An examination reveals," wrote the congressman from Texas, "that Mr. Rhodes' allegations arc largely a rehash of testimony given by the solo witness who has ever expressed any opposition to our project —a Mr. Calvin McGowan, whoso brother is Mr. Rhodes' secretary. "The McGowan opposition was based upon the fact that some of the land which will be taken for the lakoslto la owned by the McGowan family." Pcoplc-To-Pcoplc Friendship U. S. diplomats huvo been stung so often, either by McCarthy investigations or by the changeable Kremlin, that they are extremely hesitant about expressing public optimism about our future relations with Russia. However, if, as Heoms almost certain, the current Kremlin ferment stems from a stirring of the Russian people-, then thin presents a heavensent opportunity to the United States, The opporlunlty is to win closer friendship wilh the Russian people. As this writer has frequently emphasized, and n« President Eisenhower pointed out nt the Geneva summit conference, the bosf guarantee against war Is friendship among pcoplo. . For yours the United States lias not worried about war with England, France, or Cunnda tor the simple reason that our peoples have too much common sense, plus friendship, to make war. They understand each other. But the hurdle of different political systems, different language, plus, the Iron Curtain, has made friendship with 'the Russian, people difficult, • Llkowlso the Soviet system of dictatorship wan built for speedy decisions for war or peace without consulting the people. With no [rce prese, no free churches, no free radio, there wore no braked "•^L B 4 / /#NN^ v. V^/x^^/^4' on the Kremlin's ability to declare war anytime it wished. • Today, however, there Is a stirring inside Russia—and a golden opportunity for an intensive campaign for people-to-people friendship. • American Iron Curlnln • When 1 Nikita Khruschev proposed on DBS that we lower the American iron Curtain, the only man •who took him up vigorously was Sen, Lyndon Johnson of Texas, who got slightly slapped for his pains by John Foster Dulles. Since then six steel experts and six health experts from the U. S. A. ami the U. S. S. R. will visit each other's country. That, however, is not pcople-to-people friendship. A total of twenty-four people visiting two countries of 168,000,000 and 200,000,000 respectively if. not going to win many friends. It's going to be like dropping a pcbbel into the ocean. It won't cause a ripple. • The United States, in my opinion, has a political-cconomlc-cultural system that we should show of£ to the world, Yet the stole department seems afraid to let people come over here to see it. Perhaps Senator Johnson should conduct an investigation of the reasons why the slate department is sabatoglng the officially announced policy of the United States.

There is nn answer to "Why they do as they do" if we could only find it. It is Important that we find it when we wish 'to get them to change their ways oj thinking and behaving, This is often most difficult. The experiences children have with people and things and life In general are beyond counting; 'and each has Its effect and each v affects the personality anew until the complexity of the causes ot behavior arc beyond our powers of analysis and interpretation. It Is not to be wondered at that parents nnd teachers arc so often helpless\n the face of childhood's bewildering -behavior. Yet we must try to help them all select the way, accept the ex- perienco that best conditions them to success in whatever place they fill at the time. CondlLIoning Is go- • •ing on all-the time the children are conscious. They respond in the way their families 'do. They eat, drink, play, think and act in The family pattern nnd so arc conditioned right at the slnrl. If this early preparation has bciin wise, forcslghtcd.'.thc children arc going to huvc an easier time judging and accepting what comes, They hnve set habits «f"listening and heeding adult suggestions, teaching and help.- If, -on the other hand, they hnve been conditioned by wronjf li'oalmonj;,, poor food, too limited by poverty—physical or spiritual or both—they are not going tirhavc nn easy tlmo learning holler ways. They must be reconditioned. To recondition n-chlld of any age the fastest, surest way is to remove him from the home, from the Immediate environment, Hint conditioned him in the first place. And this Is something that has to be done with caution, wisdom and sympathy. Home Is refuge' for Its children, no mallor how bad It may seem to those who havu buttor ones, Parents, however Impotent In the parental relationship, urn n protective Shield in the minds of the children. To lift a child out of the home ho knows, away from the people he knows, and place him In u strange environment Is-a shock; and that must be measured against potential bcnuflt. Sometimes there are methods short of drastic removal but they are hard to come by. There are often difficulties with children who hnve been conditioned the wrong way In good homes, He won't eat for Mother? Let someone clue tnkc over his mealtime. She makes o fuss when Mother brushes her hair? Have someone fllso do it, A simple routine change may help. Hot Weather Blankets U. S.

It is made of greasepaint and surrounded by imagination, skill, vanity and ambition. They ' are like other people, 'only differ- ' ent. In triumph or tragedy, they . are a unique breed— and generally fascinating. Show folks encompass such ex-i tremes as Garbcf — who attracted! publicity by shus ning it—and Jayne| Mansfield, , w h < craves the publicl prints with the in-l 'tensity that' al starving man de-l sires bread. Missl Mansfield modcst-l ly announces thai! "I love photographers," expresses her ambition, as "I wa,nt to be No. 1 blonde everywhere." , They are dedicated people whoso physical and mental resources are focused on their jobs. As Rex Harrison explained: "All day I'm building toward 8:50. You wouldn't., be an actor it you'were bovine, so there always has to be this nervous tension. After the show I wonder why my stomach muscles haven't gone 'whoop' during the day. Then I can take a drink and relax for a 'bit. It's the only time I -do relax, late at nighl, when most respectable people arc in. bed." Dedication requires full-time concentration. Everything becomes secondary'to The Career . . . For illustrative purposes, there's Cosmopolitan's recent prose sketch of Natalie Wood. One of her beaus drove her into the Hollywood hills and parked the car. The lights of the city twinkled below and the moon was riding high, ft was the perfect setting for romance. After silently absorbing the breath-taking view, the swain whispered: ' "What are you thinking about?" The Dream Girl sighed: "I'm thinking about how I'll play that scene. tomorrow morning." Romance suddenly chilled. Conceding defeat, the young man grumbled: "I'll tnke you home." Miss Wood coolly responded: "Good, I've still got some lines to memorize." ( Stnrs arc more lhan Individuals. They are Important economic factors involving a successful collaboration of numerous people and millions of dollars. Movie studios are obviously concerned wilh "protecting the Inveslimcnl" and often forget the liumnn equation . . . Judy Garland recently recalled how a studio "destroyed my faith in someone I thought was my Wend. "She oaoc shared an apartment with a chum, a girl .she had known many years. It turned out Ihnt her aliened friend was on the studio payroll us a '-'spy." She gave the studio a. report every week on the people Miss Curlnml mot, what .she nlc, what lime she came in al night and whnt lime she awakened in the morning. This stnr declared: "I can remember crying,, for days after t found out what she WHS doing to me." The tremendous emotional strain acting require and (he essontinl sensitivity of performers sometimes has strange consequences, •lulie Harris, lor cxamjje, was once rehearsing n tragic episode when she suddenly burst Into leant. She lost control of herself nnd had hysterics. For the rest of the dny she was melancholy, The role , she created dominated her. Miss ITnrrls later snid: "There's got to be some difference between Ihu real and Imaginary. I don't hiive n perspective In this nnd I don't wnitl.lo <ol. Involved, It could bi> the' end of me. I could picture myself gom« night having to die onstage—and roally dying." Superior actors ore artists-mean- ' Jng their object Is perfection. The knowledge that perfection IK impossible doesn't prevent, them from striving for II, A producer hns noted: "I've seen the Lunts re-do a scene iWenly times. Each time I'd think II, couldn't be done better. Then Alfred or Lynn would say, 'No, darling, that just isn't right. Lot's try (t again.' " i Whore there Is lh« fire ol artistry, you hayjB.the sparks of tem- perament. As Mr. Lunt confessed: "During rehearsals we go at each, other as if it were a matter .of life-or-death. We scream and shout so that people who don't know us are sure we're on the verge of divorce." In brief, their mutual respect for conflicting opinions represents the source of their harmony—and artistry. When performers gain Iheir dreams, they lose their dreams. The apparent paradox is explained by the fact that success doesn't eliminate insecurity. It merely replaces one anxiety with another* As Marlon Brando stated: "Even after having a certain measure of success such as I have had, it'« still hard to be sure. I am still plagued by doubts, fears and loneliness. The confusion and turmoil that comes with success was once described by Frank Sinatra: "It's terribly difficult to remain completely stable when you suddenly zoom from no place to where you're constantly surrounded by people pushing you in several directions. The money is always there when you want it, although you really don't know how much is there. So you get confused, you don't care. What does it mean to earn tremendous sums of coin? Sinatra's wealth includes ?30,000 worth ot cuff links. Tension, confusion, insecurity are constant companions. They are like ghosts. Flee from them ana Ihey follow. Which helps explain why so many folks make psychiatrists richer. . .Tallulah Bankhead endeavors to eliminate the terror of opening nights by praying in. her dressing room before her first entrance. . .Harry Bclafontc was so jittery when he made his nightclub il'Bbul that his facial muscles were practically paralyzed. As Bcl- afontc described it: "My mouth was so dry thai when 1 smiled 1 had to reach up and pull my upper Jip loose." Even Terry Como—Mr. Relaxation himself—has known the horror of stage fright. When he mode his singing inaugural wilh Ted Woem's' orchestra, Como strolled onto the, stage and drew n blank. He forgot his song, forgot, iiis line's, forgot where he was. The audience's laughter jolted him out of his bewilderment and he finally was able to sing. The sound of applause may appear to be noise to ordinary folks To show folks, however, it is mil sic. An hypnotic melody. . .Judy Holliday renounced Movicvillc ten porarlly nnd returned to the thea Ire in a musical that required nr duous training in singing and dune ing. As a miter of fact, the star is still continuing her hoofing nnd vocal.school. Miss Holliday gays: "At every "performance 1 use up .as much energy as if 1 were digging ditches. Oh, 1 love being in the show." Actors nnd actresses arc stage- struck. It enables them to overcome humiliations nnd frustrations when they are struggling Inward Iho pinnacle—and helps them survive the emotional stress thai comes with success. Performers love to perform. And it is a lifelong romano. ArrestS Who Delayed El Capitan 25 Minutes KANSAS CITy, Kan.
