6 - Wed, Harcli », IW Redlamis Daily Facts Sukarno calls it guided democracy By R. E. STANNARD Jr. UniM PrMS Inta^ational DJAKARTA, Indonesia (UPi: — One ot the largest nations in tlie world has tamed its back on democracy. Dynamic President Sukarno rules the 100 million people of Indonesia with a system of government he calls "giSided democracy." His avowed intent is to restore to his people the national unity and fervor that won Indonesia her independence from he Netherlands, and to forge a new sense' of national identity and purpoise. "Guided democracy" is dismissed by critics as "misguided democracy" — wrong-headed, iron-fisted dictatorship hell­ bent for Communist totalitarianism. But, in fact, it is merely an unguided autocracy; the most serious indictment against President Sukarno is not (hat he has accumulated almost absolute power, but that he has failed to use it. When Indonesia attained independence from Holland in 1919, it had tlie makings of one of the greatest and richest nations in the world. Rich In Resources Indonesia is a vast equatorial archipelago of more than 13,000 islands dotted over the South Pacific Ocean from Asia to .Australia. It is rich in natural resources and unexplored lands. Its fertile soil produces many 'types of food. The Dutch had turned the islands into a major source ofj oil, rubber, tin and a veritable cornucopia of forest and planfa tion products. The young repubh'c began its history with an acknowledged and undisputed national language, a history of religious tolerance, a commitment to representative government, and a fierce sense of national iden tity transcending old and deep ethnic rivalries. Its leadership included a remarkable triumvirate: Sukarno, a consummate orator of unrivaled mass appeal; Mohammed Hatta, a pragmatic administrator of unquestioned integrity; and Sutan Sjahrir, a brilliant and perceptive political mind. Had these three men been able to blend their views and destmies instead of whitewash ing their differences, the postwar experiment in parliamen tarianism might have survived. Political Force Decomposes But the nation's political force soon decomposed into a myriad of self-seeking parties vying for position and privilege. The country sank into stagnation and civil war. Dramatic change was urgently needed. In July, 1959, President Su kamo stepped in with "guided democracy" and the promise of dynamic leadership toward "rediscovery of our revolution." He scrapped the new consti tution and restored the revolu tionary constitution of 1945 wih its broad presidential powers. He named himself premier, replaced he elected parliament with presidential appointees, banned the influential Masjumi and Socialist parties from alleged rebel sympathies, and founded an all-embracing "National Front," incorporating all parties, clubs, professional groups and other organizations. At the concrete level of government and public administra tion, the military, the Commu nists, the other parties, the commercial inerests, and i'he palace coterie vie for position and influence. Sukarno appears to want to remain above it all. As $ result, the nation is overburdened with glowing general objectives but lacks day-to-day direction and discipline. Sukarno appears to want to remain above it all. As a result, the nation is overburdened with glowing general objectives but lacks day-to-day direction and discipline. Instead of unified, dynamic leadership at the working lev- superficial appearance of static unanimity at the top following Sukarno's broad policy guide lines. Many have looked hopefully for a new dynamism to arise out of the present anti-Malay sia campaign. Indeed, many practical economic steps may be compelled upon Indonesia to adjust to the drastic break with Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. But again, as in the West Irian campaign, a major proportion of the nation's energies and scarce administrative talent will be consumed in pursuit of objectives unrelated to the attainment of the just and prosperous society President Sukar no wants for his country. President Sukarno, under his self-tailored system of "guided democracy," has unparalleled power with which to tackle the e r i o u s economic problems plaguing his country and people today. The way he uses that power will determine his eventual place in history.

WATCHING POLICE ROCHESTER, England (UPI) —A motorist ticketed for speeding sent his fine to the court Tuesday with this explanation: "I was watchmg the police ear so intently that I didn't see the speed Umit sign." Mud defeated slowly by men with machines By DICK KLEINER Newspaper Enferprist Assn. FLUSHING MEADOWS, N.Y. — (NEA) — The big sign in the administration building read: "Only 56 days until the New York World's Fair Opens." Each day the number is lowered. And each day, as the zero hour gets one day closer, there is noticeable progress. As y o u walk around the fair as February turns into March, the place is humming. Traffic and mud are . two main problems. Each e.\hibit is now being worked on, and there are an estimated 4,800 workmen on the grounds every day. Trucks, bulldozers, cars, fire engines, mobile refreshment stands jam the muddy, rutty roads, often bumper to bumper, as the fair's police struggle to keep them moving. The roads are lined with the quarters of construction crews, some in trailers, others in jerrybuilt shacks. Huge trucks, carrying lumber or bricks or concrete, maneuver to back into the sites where workmen wait impatiently for supplies. And everywhere, mud — mud in the unpaved roads, mud LANDSCAPE: Mud, in abundant evidence, surrounds the Ford Pavilion.

A few of the buildings are complete, virtually ready to open. The Simmons exhibit was the first finished; inside are cubicles where weary sightseers will be able to rest on mattres ses (for a fee). The huge Ford and General Motors exhibits are finished, at least on the outside. You can see shrouded cars on the circular ramp around Ford's exhibit; in a few months, they will be carrj'ing thousands of vi sitors on the ride into the past present and future. Dotting the grounds are the beginnings of the egg-shaped ; concrete phone booths where there will be no telephones. Microphones and loud speakers will replace the conventional instruments, and whole families can go in at once and make collective and perhaps collect, caU. Here and there you can see what will be a restaurant. Altogether, there will be 111 restaurants at the fair — not counting innumerable hot dog and hamburger stands. You can see the exhibits taking shape, some only bare red steel girders, most practically finished. There is Illinois' brick structure, where an animated. Abraham Lincohi will be in residence. There is the Singer Bowl, I seating 18,000 where many pre- I Olympic trials (fencing, WTest ling, etc.) will be held. Thailand's temple replica. West Virginia, where you can 1 fish for trout. Parker Pen, where a computer will select the perfect pen pal for you to I write to somewhere overseas. out what seems to be a huge, black working model of a futuristic car and a matching working model of a motor flanking the company's exhibit hall. There is Schaefer's bar which they claim is the world's longest. The fair has licensed 65 com-, panies to make more than 500" items — World's Fair bibs and • salad forks, bow ties and pillows, banks and sweat shirts, blouses and salt and pepper shakers. Long, white trailers snake around the grounds in test runs. They will carry visitors who don't want to walk. Or you will, be able to rent a private taxi at Sll an hour. It will generally be ready come April 22. Here and_ there,; bit of landscapiug may not be finished, but the big things will be ready for the visitors. Already, ticket sales have . passed the $10 million mark.-, .•^nd the visitors will be ready to tour the fair — a trek which will take an estimated 12 eight hour days to complete. Painters scurry over scaffolding. The orange - and - blue World's Fair Fire Department truck tries to buck the traffic to reach a small fire in the IBM e.xhibit. Plastic sheets cover many sites, "X's are chalked on most windows. Sinclair's dinosaurs seem to be supervising the construction. Chrysler's exhibit begins to take shape; this had been kept secret, but now you can make Witt placed on probation LOS .WGELES (OTI) — The former pesident of the defunct Pacific Trust Deed Association, who was convicted on grand theft and conspiracy charges, Tuesday had a 1-10 year prison sentence suspended and was ' placed on probation for 10 years.
