CALL 663-3114 IF PAPER IS MISSED- Frank A. White I AM FULLY aware some readers will disagree with my view that despite its present low estate, the United Nations is needed to help keep peace of a warring world. Among readers of a newspaper are all shades of opinion and tolerance. Presenting . views pro and con on the U. N. and other Mr. White issues is ,what makes America great. Foes of the U. N. most often contend defeat of a United States move to make the Soviet Union, France and some other nations pay their share of the peacekeeping activities of the U. N. has destroyed public faith in the organization. THEY CONTEND also that the U. N. is a threat to security of the U. S. A. hy becoming a super-world government. They fear an influx of emerging nations among the 115 members of the U. N. can outvote the U. S. Many times these small new nations play both sides of the street for aid and end up voting with the Communist bloc. Friends of the U. N. point to silencing of guns between India and Pakistan over Kashmir as a great U. N. victory. GENERALLY, IT IS believed that the veto, which has paralyzed the U. N. when exercised some 100 times by the Soviet Union, is a Russian invention. This is not true. A look at history reveals when the U. N. was aborning in San Francisco it was not too popular with Congress. A few determined senators, such as Senator Borah, had applied the guillotine to Wilson's League of Nations.

N. unless we, one of the major founding as powers, could apply the veto. We would not then, or now, let the U. N. embroil us in a war not approved by Congress, and the Soviet Union feels the same. However, this is not a whitewash of the wrongful use of the veto that the Soviet Union has practiced. IT MUST BE REALIZED that the U. N. is a loose federation. It has the label of a glorified international debating society, charged by some. However, it is a sounding board, where we can find out what our friends and foes are thinking. Getting true information is a difficult thing. When we had no U. N. as a sounding board, Japan put an Iron Curtain up and fortified itself and sprang Pearl Harbor on us. War is such a costly business, as the escalating price in men and treasure shows in Viet Nam, that the 40 per cent the U. S. pays to keep the U. N. running is'almost peanuts, compared to what war would cost. There is, of course, the peril of the U. S. being outvoted. We cannot make everyone in the world see as we see. It is up to us over a period of time to convince the whole world of the justness of our stand, and the U. N. is a good place to begin, and to exert world pressure. THIS THING OF the U. S. being outvoted in the U. N. is something to be feared more than a reality to date. The record shows that with Henr«' Cabot Lodge and the late Adlai Stevenson as our U. N. ambassadors that the U. S. has never been outvoted in the U. N. on any major matter. The tragic thing in regard to the U. N. is that we decide so many things politically and through prejudices. Were any reader of this column to take the trouble to obtain objective books, and they exist, on the U. N. and find out what it really has done the story would be different. It has really stopped or averted many wars. We must accept the U. N. not as a perfect instrument, realize its limitations, and do what we can to strengthen it.

So machines will get the jobs, because they work for less than a living wage." tration count and possibly a charge of permitting an unlicensed drive to operate his car is Ronald Stamper, 23. Stamper was the only one not in his car when it jumped the north curb of West Main and traveled approximately 75 feet, a part of the way on the sidewalk, before crashing into the cement block foundation for a neon sign' in front of Buell's Motel, 516 West Main. When the car came to a halt, the back of it was in the entranceway to the motel. Before striking the base of the sign, the auto damaged a railroad crossing sign post and demolished a stone enclosure containing shrubbery. Stampler, who contended he had just met the other three occupants of his car a few hours earlier in Indianapolis, told police he went into the Village Green Motel, 426 West Main, and when he started back to his car he saw it "take off" west on Main with Miss White driving. The vehicle traveled less than a block before going out of control. Damage to the 1957-model auto was estimated at $1,000 and that to the Buell property at $700. Property damage was estimated at $375 in a two-car crash in Millhousen at 3 p. m. Monday. According to Sheriff Irvin Gidley, the accident occurred as Marvin J. Stier, 19, R. R. 2, driving north, stopped .before entering the main, street in Millhousen, but failed to see an auto approaching from the east. The westbound auto was driven by Teresa J. Horan, 34, R. R. 7.

Indians, Pakistanis Fight Anew By JOHN A. BARTON NEW. DELHI (UPI) — Fighting flared today along the India-Pakistan border in violation of the United Nations cease'fire. India said it had annihilated a Pakistani column in the Sind Desert, and Pakistan reported the Indian air force attacked in that area. The Indian Defense Ministry also reported continued Chinese military activity along the border of Ladakh in northeast Kashmir and near the border of SikMm. It reported the Chinese digging in on high ground in the Ladakh area and said they had built observation posts and bun- lers near Sikkim. India reported wiping out the Pakistani column and recapturing a village but the Defense Ministry denied its air force had strafed Pakistani troops in the Rajasthan^Sind border area 500 miles south of Lahore as claimed by the Pakistanis. There was mounting pressure, meantime, on Prime Minister Lai Bahadur Shastri to authorize manufacture by India of its own atomic weapons. Mehr Chand Khanna, state minister for works and housing, called Monday for India to build the bomb. He told a rally: We will need atomic weapons to safeguard our interests." MP's Want Bomb Khanna was the first minister in the Indian government to urge publicly acquisition of nuclear weapons. A total of 85 members of Parliament, including a number of the ruling Congress Party, had signed a peti- :ion urging such measures following the outbreak of the war with Pakistan over Kashmir. Pakistan's new charges were aired as Maj. Gen. Bruce F. MacDonald of Canada flew in with a group of United Nations aides in an effort to enforce the steadily deteriorating cease fire. He admitted his job would be difficult. Pakistan's charges, made in a Karachi' radio broadcast, said fbday was the first time India lad used its air force against Pakistani positions since the ruce went into effect last veek.

Monday night Miss Malone whispered her first words to doctors in five days and appeared cheerful despite the pain and her critical condition. Growing in Intensity— Debbie Stirs Hurricane Watch NEW ORLEANS (UPI)—Tropical storm Debbie, steadily growing in intensity, sent gale winds lashing the Mississippi and Alabama coasts today and the WeatheV Bureau ordered a hurricane watch from Louisiana to Florida. The Weather Bureau urged coastal residents to flee in the face of approaching high tides Oil rigs in the gulf, buffeted by high waves, were being evacuated. The Navv's big air training station at Pensacola, Fla., went on alert and prepared for a possible "flyaway" of hundreds of planes to safer fields should the storm grow to hurricane strength. The storm that suddenly built from a tropical "depression" in" the Gulf of Mexico was moving at 10 miles an hour up "Hurricane Alley." packing winds up to 50 miles per hour. Winds were extending 200 miles from the center of the storm as it approached an area battered less than three weeks ago by Hurricane Betsy. At 10 a.m. CST, Debbie's center was near latitude 27.1, longitude 89.2. about 250 miles south southwest of Pensacola. It was moving northeastward at 10 miles an hoar, with winds fanning out to the north and east. • AVarn Craft Small craft from Lake Charles, La., to Fort Myers.

Praecipe for the transcript was filed by Frank I. Hamilton and Donald Brunner, attorneys for the plaintiffs in the complaint for injunction to halt construction of the schools filed last Dec. 16 by George Crosby, Denbv Israel and Roy Menefee, and others. In a trial here last July. Special Judge Leroy C. Hanby of the Fayette Circuit Court ruled in favor of the Decatur County Community Corporation, and others, defendants in the action. On Sept. 9, Judge Hanby overruled the plaintiff's motion for a new trial, setting the stage for the plaintiffs to perfect an appeal to the higher court within 90 days. -This morning's action on the part of the plaintiffs means another obstacle in the plans of the. school corporation to proceed as rapidly as possible with the construction program. The plaintiffs contend their objection to the proposed building program is the location of the new school in the south part of the school district. Plans are for the south school to be erected on the west side of Indiana 3 midway between Letts and Westport. The plaintiffs are residents of Clay Township. Site selected for the north school is on the northeast corner of the junction of Indiana 3 and County Road SOON. WEATHER H'mon City — 46 — 66 5 a. m — 11 a. m — Max. Mon — Min.

MANILA (UCPI) — Volcanic Mount Taal which had slumbered for 54 years in a lake 35 miles ,south of Manila erupted today " with explosions that hurled a ball of fire nearly two miles high. Hundreds were feared dead. Governor Feliciano Leviste of Batangas province said 117 persons were known to have been killed, including a man who survived the great 1911 eruption which took an estimated 3,000 lives. Three .of the dead were struck by lightning in a thunderstorm meteorologists said was caused by the eruption. Estimates of the number of persons living on the volcano isle ranged from 2,000 to 6,000, and the Philippine Constabulary said many of them had been evacuated. Manila newspapers put the number of dead at 1,200 to 2,000. . Fear New Explosion President Diosdado Macapal headed a rescue 1 mission from Manila but operations • were hampered by the smoke and steam and a heavy rain. Vol- canologists warned that a stronger explosion .could come' Wednesday, causingjidal waves on the lake. The Red Cross reported that 8,20a persons had been evacuated from three towns of bamboo houses on the lake shore facing the volcano. Rocks reportedly fell on the mainland side of the lake—a distance of more than ' two miles through the air from the volcano's southern crater. Dr. Generoso Caridad, medical services director of the Philippine Red Cross, said more than a hundred bodies were found on the shores of the lake. He said he believed hundreds of bodies might have been buried under the ashes, hot mud and lava that covered three island villages. It may be weeks before the actual death toll is known. The Philippines Herald reported 2,000 persons died. A Manila Times team of reporters fixed the estimated death toll at between 1,200 and 1,500. The Philippine News Services said 1,000 persons in two villages were believed buried alive. Many Drowned The news agency said three motorized boats carrying panic- stricken evacuees were report' ed to have capsized in the lake and many occupants drowned.

It has been a long-standing practice for candidates for secretary of state to accept contributions from ' the securities dealers they .must regulate if elected. Four witnesses, including Secretary of State John Bottorff, were scheduled to appear today and Prosecutor Noble Pearcy said he would not know until after hearing them whether the investigation would, go beyond Bottorff's administration. Gifts to Hendricks It was revealed Monday that the late Michael Dobich made .two contributions totaling $1,000 to the campaigns of former Secretary of State Charles Hendricks. The gifts were reported by Hendricks' campaign treasurer, Fritz Ryan of Ellettsville, in his report of contributions and expenditures. At the time of the contributions, Dobich had no particular significance but his death in a helicopter crash in July touched off a securities scandal. His firm went bankrupt after his death and an investigation showed that 579 clients had paid almost $3 milMon for stock they never received. Martin Edwards, New Castle, securities commissioner under Hendricks, said "we never pressured anybody" for campaign contributions. He said that for at least 30 years Democratic and Republican candidates for secretary received contributions from securities dealers.
