4 Gdlesbu It Will Be a Sham e If All You Need a Baudaid and -A 4 By PETER EDSON WASHINGTON (NBA)-th6 ftefct six months may be ad fateful AS any half-year since the end ol World War II. Developments now coming fo a head are important to the United States internationally and on the domestic front as well. MOSCOW TALKS between Russian and Red Chinese leaders may set the course for the future of communism. A widening split between the two camps, which now seems likely, greatly alters the international balance of power in Asia. The most immediate result might be a decision on the resumption of Red China's attack on India later this year. Finally aroused to the Communist men- the real threat ttm Red China President Kennedy's trip to fiu- Stability in Europe is questionable. is its advance through Burma and Indochina into the Malay peninsula. The threat of further Communist penetration into Southeast Asia has been increased by British faHure to persuade the Russians to help stop the fighting in Laos. Pakistan's foolish flirtations with Red China as an ally that might help against India further heighten the prospett for trouble in South Asia. AFTER fHiS Russia-Red China talks in Moscow Come American- British-Russian negotiations on a nuclear test ban.

But the extent to which the mission advanced American objectives tor a strengthened North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is still uncertain. The proposed NATO multilateral nuclear force, armed with Polaris missiles, has been temporarily shelved.

WASHINGTON (NEA) - New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller's chief political aide, George Hinman, holds forth in the pastel- tinted, thick-carpeted offices of the Rockefeller brothers in New York's RCA building.

PUBLIC INFORMATION specialists of the Department of Defense — harassed by accusations of bad handling of the news have adopted a phrase from Homer, "After the event, even a fool is wise." ' FINANCE CHAIRMAN Richard Maguire gave the Democratic National Committee meeting in Washington the shortest and least revealing report ever made on how much money the party had or did not have in its treasury. "It's like my wife's cookie jar," Said the red-faced Maguire. "No matter how many cookies she puts in, it soon gets empty." None of the committeemen were impolite enough to ask the chairman to translate that into f numbers of dollars on hand or in debt. The general understanding was that the party is in the black thanks to President Kennedy's $l,000-a-ticket dinner and gala. But when a political party has money in the bank, it doesn't boast about it. The act is to put on a poor face — to beg for more. SEN. KENNETH KEATING of New York received a letter from a senior citizen of Buffalo in support of Health Care for the Aged. The old gent gave his theory on why the bill didn't pass last year. He said it was due to the fact that the young people of today don't have enough respect for their elders. "It Then he concluded: seems that the whippersnappers in Washington today respect old age only when it's bottled." AFTER THE SENATE approv­ ed a resolution designating Sept. 17th as a legal holiday to be known as Constitution Day, Sen. Karl E. Mundt, R-S. D., observed: "The way the Supreme Court has been going, one wonders if the holiday will be 'in memoriam to' or 'in honor of the Constitution." U. S. CHAMBER of Commerce national headquarters in Washington is going to run up a flag and march around the flagpole at 7:12 p.m. July 9 in observance of "D" — for Deliverance —Day.

'This is called;'*, he said, \ V ^ ; MAILBOX Courtesy Needed Editor, Register-Mail: The word "courtesy" covers a lot of ground like our cars do nowadays. In parking on streets let's give the people that live along there enough room to get out of their driveways. Those who make U-turns on busy streets should also use the full meaning of the • word. And four wheels should be used in coming out of places of business instead of burning tires on two. We may blame pedestrians, but we all have to walk sometimes. So some of these people that get out of cars might wait on the curb for sign to change and not stand out in the street; also wait for the sign to change instead of walking against it. This word "courtesy" is much abused. There would be fewer accidents and hurt feelings if courtesy were practiced as it should be.—Mildred Fulton* TWO IN HARNESS. Any set of statistics flung at random upon the commons is an invitation to speculation, and never more so than when it concerns our own behavior. The Labor Department has just announced that almost a third of all the married women in this country are work* ing, including far more middle- aged women than ever before. Jeremiahs will hasten to attribute to this fact all the ills which beset us, from the increase in juvenile delinquency to the spread of TV dinners. A more interesting speculation want to lead something resembling the Renaissance mold, then we must realize that we cannot achieve it through capsule-style knowledge and examinations which, however am­ is why women strenuous double UCRI and among Peronists.

Money is, of course, the first reason which emerges from polls and surveys: rnpney for^ spending in answer to "the revolution of higher expectations," or just money for fun. Some moralists instantly condemn the first ground as well as the second without pausing to consider of what these higher expectations consist. It may be something as simple as a better house, but often it is more complex. . , Above all, it is the college education which has become the expectation of between a third and half of all the children in the country. The correlation between women's return to employment and the youngest child's reaching school age has often been noted. Has anyone surveyed the relation between women's return to employment and the school status of the eldest child? If they did, it might put the upsurge in female employment in a less meretricious light- and less _ _ * Quotes From Today's News (Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.) By United Press International ST.
