PAGE FOUR THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS. LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, OCTOBER 20,1957 Editorials... Let's Try to Minimize Vandalism With. Halloween vandalism again at its height, - all of us as parents should ask ourselves whether we are completely free from blame for the damage and destruction caused annually at this season of the year. Whether we realize it or not, a 1957 state law makes parents responsible for any vandalism up to $500 perpetrated by their children under 1.8 years of 'age If a few parents face the prospect of paying for the damage caused by-their "children, they may begin to exercise greater control over their activities. -, ., - . ' There have been instances in the city and county in the past, week in which screen doors have been torn up, flower .boxes upset on porches, bicycle tires slashed, hay stolen from farms and set afire on county roads, and warning flares stolen from in front of a bridge'under repair. . The theft of '•• the flares, alone resulted in a serious auto accident, and other -accidents could easily be caused by the pranksters who have" heavily soaped windshields in front.of the driver's seat on parked cars in Logansport. \ . Perhaps we should discuss.with our children the right and wrong ways of observing Halloween. The Halloween festival always has been- meant-to be one of good natured fun and festivity rather than one of vandalism and destruction George E. SOKOLSKY These Days THE REPUBLICANS AGAIN Every state has its problems and- its peculiarities. The state of New York is required by its Constitution to ask its voters every 20 years; whether they wish to hold;a 'constitutional convention.,If the voters^ so' decide, there is an expensive; jamboree in the course of which a-. host of politicians get $7,500 each for a.short period of back-scratching plus expenses, some of which •as untaxed, and all of which is grist to the mill for those who cannot earn their'money in any better way.' • Already Nelson Rockefeller, -who. is busying himself with New York •affairs, conducted public hearings dealing ' with this subject, hearings which produced 633 pages of statements/ . LITTLE OF THIS material would-.-. indicate that a new constitution' needs to replace the old"one which while not a noble document is not likely to be worse than will be produced by another convention. After all, the Constitution of the United States has lasted 170 years •and the original seems to stand up, although the Supreme Cpurt goes out of its way to change it legislatively. '•' Just to sh«w how queer these things can be, in 1858, the legislature of New York State submitted to the voters the question of abolishing the executive and legislative- departments of government and vesting such powers in the 'President, Vice President and directors of the New York Central Railroad Company. Now here THE FLY BALL AND THE GROUNDER If we will impress upon our.-youngsters the fact that no action is fun ^c^^y^- ^ ^ happiness to someone else it- as possiDie ^ defeated by the narrow might save ourselves considerable difficulty later, and police would find that many of their headaches with juveniles would disappear. Halloween can be. made safer and happier for everyone with a little education.

Leonardo, the world's greate genius, also wrote this grim prophecy: "There: shall come ' forth from beneath the ground ploration. Mankind's biographyj indicates that the desire to navigate] the radiant heights is almost! as old .as civilization. • Over two thousand .years ago, the Greeks] originated . a science known as astronomy. Dur- ^j. w hi c h by ing' that period, a Grecian, author Angelo PATRI us. Seventy's Not Old When President Eisenhower celebrated his 67th birthday, there was a lot of comment on the fact that when he leaves office in January, 1961, he will be the oldest man-ever to have occupied the. White House. .This has a certain historic interest, but it is of relatively little real importance. The biblical three score and ten is considerably less advanced along the road to old age than it was evln as little as half "a century ago. The reason for this is that medical science has greatly extended the average life span. So much has been learned about prolonging good health that many who reach 70 can anticipate pleasant years which would have been a rare thing two _ generations say m the past margin of 6,360 votes, which just goes to show that voters some- times'will vote for anything. . . • . - \A/»|..L -ACTUALLY,'THERE is no real. yVOfK WitII need Jor such a convention in the near'.utu're and surely'a constitution ought to last far more .than 20 years.
