2-Al96fta (la.) Upper DM Md!n*s Thursday, August 11, SPEAKING OF PROFIT! How would you like to make $ll.5 million in one day while sitting in an easy chair? The New Yorker magazine says that's what happened to Charles S. Molt, a director of General Motors. When GM announced its Veccnt stock split, share values shot up 14 points on the New York Stock Exchange. On that basis, Molt, the owner of 800,000 GM shares, made $11,5 million during a single 5M> hour day of trading on the exchange. The magazine added: "Mr Mott may have spent the day in a hammock, or lounging around any of his 13 clubs, but he still made 11 ¥2 million between 1.0 in the morning and 3:30 in the afternoon. Mr Moll's only problem, really, is how to avoid a hefty capital gains tax in his next income lax return, and with JPi million more he should be able lo hire some fairly good legal help. BROWNELL, THE WHITE KNIGHT Attorney General Herbert Brownell has been rather quiet after his outbursls in 1953 and 1954 against the Democrats as "being soft on Communism", Perhaps the Attorney General, who stepped into the job after being national Republican chairman, feels that the subject of "being sofl on Communism" isn't quite the righl tune in 1955 after his Boss has been exchanging views with some of these self-same Communists, and the big" ones at that, across the conference table. Not even the Democrats have accused anyone of being "soft on Communism" because they had the good sense to be willing to talk it over with people from a different continent, different race, and different political ideology. We have no doubt, though, bul that if a Democratic president had done the same thing, Mr Brownell would have been shouting lo high heaven. But Mr Brownell is nol silent. Now he has made his move against labor. He declares thai he- thinks it is illegal for organized labor to contribute to political campaigns. This is certainly one of the most astonishing things to come from Mr Brownell since the time he inferred that ex-President Truman was practically a trailor to his country. Brownell says nothing about Texas oil millionaires contributing — evidently that is all right; it's just not righl for a working man to contribute. What Mr Brownell, really means is that contributions will be welcome if they go lo Ihc Republicans, bul it's againsl Ihc law in his eyes if they go to Democrats. * * * Senator Joe McCarthy of Wisconsin laid il on prctly heavy, referring to Ike's recent visit "at the summil" with Russian leaders. He said that the President "offered friendship to tyrants, and murderers," and thai he believes a selloul lo Ihc Communists in Asia is in the making. Time will tell. Some strange things are happening. * * * If the Russians raise as good a crop of corn iind pigs as they seem to do Vodka, they would have no agricultural problems at all. Upp er 111 E.

" ADVERTISING RATES Display Advertising, per inch „ Me OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER NEW GOVERNMENT SCANDALS Accusalions of favoritism, sloppincss and waste, and mishandling of a public Irust have been hilling one Federal agency after another during the past several weeks. Only the fact that President Eisenhower was in Geneva, and that the all-oul general interest was in a peaceful settlement of differences between the U.S.A. and Russia kept the more sordid news of happenings in Washington from receiving lop billing in Ihe news grist of the week. The scandals over former Air Secretary Talbotl and the Dixon-Yalcs deal and contract, were aired somewhat, but several others were entirely overlooked. One of the biggest stories concerned the head of Ihe government's huge General Services Ad- minislralion (GSA), and of all things, the revcla- lions came through Fortune magazine, a leading spokesman for the class of Ihinking lhat domi- nalcs Ihe Republican parly. Fortune charged the agency headed by Edmund F. Mansure with "favoritism, factionalism, sloppiness and waste." Fortune said Ihe agency deals involve great corporations and marginal operators, oriental swindlers and Caribbean grafters, Chicago politicians, and Washington influence peddlers and fixers. The charges were backed by specific examples. The GSA employs 25,000 people, is responsible for $9 billion dollars of Federal properly, and buys one billion dollars worth of goods each year. And the new agency has harly ever been heard of since it was formed. Its boss is a Chicago GOP leader, Ed Mansure. This agency has participated in deals of influence connected with painl, nickel, sugar, conslruc- tion work, and even insurance. It's nice to know lhal Ihings are going so well "al Ihe summil", bul il sounds and smells as though there might be a little something wrong down at the grass rools. "WRONG WAY" MINISTER RESIGNS Humboldl Independent — Over in Council Bluffs Ihe Lions Club was presenling a scries of vocational programs wherein each member had the program for one evening to tell about his business. One member was a beer wholesaler and when his turn came lo present a program he asked a brewing company rcprescntalive to explain the lax on beer and Ihcn show a movie of Ihe brewing industry. At the completion of the program a minister, who was a member of the Lions Club, jumped up and resigned from the club because Ihey allowed such a program to be presented. Shades of "Wrong Way Corrigan"! That was a classic example of the wrong way to handle Ihe situation. Unless, of course, the minister wanted to withdraw from the Lions club and look that way to do it. Even then we believe he could have found many belter ways to withdraw. The means he took to sever his membership in Ihe club lefl a very poor impression on Ihe rest of the members. Most of them considered such a withdrawal an intolercyt and bigoted display of temper. If the minister had objected to the program he could have lefl the meeling without comment. If he felt thai such programs should nol be given he could have so slated to the officers of the club or to the members at the nexl meeting. He would have had far more chance to correct what lie considered a bad situation if he had stayed a member of the club and worked to prevent a recurrence of similar programs. By his display of temper and bigoted attitude he has eliminated himself and his views from ever having very much influence with members of Ihe Council Bluffs Lions Club. * * » ROUGH ON THE LADY INDIANOLA RECORD-HERALD — Oveta Gulp Hobby failed miserably in her conduct of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. Her failures ranged all the way from the incredible lo Ihe inexcusable. She first said that no one could have anticipated the demand for the polio vaccine. For the head of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare It) say that is incredible. As soon as she realized she had made a blunder, she. said that she was not to blame but that her subordinate Surgeon Scheele was to blame. Such an alibi is inexcusable. A number of Republican editors have said that it is ungracious to criticize Mrs Hobby because she is a woman. We remember that the Republican press was always ready and quick to criticize and lambasl Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins. * >i- « There's one thing Jhat Ihe Democrats should feel pretty flattered about, and that is thai Ihe Eisenhower administration has adopted about every impurlant plank in the Democrat party's foreign policy, while reducing the 195^ GOP platform lo a scrap of paper. The Day Billy Graham Met ihe Cynics ... WASHINGTON—I feli uneasy for Rev. Billy Graham when he stood up before those 400 men last Thursday. And his first words were, "1 speak somewhat in fear and trembling as I face this audience. I'd rater be before a packed house in Madison Square Garden." No wonder! Those 400 pairs of glaring eyes belonged lo the world's hardest crops of cynics— Washinglon correspondents. This was the first lime in 47 years a clergyman dared appear al Ihe Nalional Press Club as luncheon speaker. In this business of newspaper- ing you find more fakers to the barrel than rotten apples in last year's bushel. Was Graham a "faker? * * * For minutes, ihe evangelist stood there, silently, cutting through the audience with piercing eyes. It looked as if all his soul and feeling had welled under those brows. I glanced aboul me. Cynics al every table, delermined not to be "taken in." A smile dawned across hi.- face. "Looking at you men o! the press," he said, "I wonclei what you will write about this talk." It reminded him of the story about Ihe bishop from England who arrived for his first visit IL New York. The reporters surrounded him. One asked, "Do you intend to visit any night clubs while in New York?" The bishop replied quickly, diplomatically, "Are there any night clubs in New York?" The next day, said Graham, the news story began: "First question Bishop—asked upon his arrival here was, "Are there any night clubs in New York?" ... From then on, he had Ihe cynics nibbing from his hand. o * x» A dead ash from a cigaret would have made a thump on the floor at times when Graham pounded out his thoughts. "What is wrong with the world today " he asked, and he lolc 1 them Ihe answer. Here was a young man in crisp dark suit lelling what's wrong with the world to the oldtimers who every day report what's wrong with the world. "Il is thai our souls have ;•< disease," he said. "What is that disease? There's a three-letter word for it—It is sin ..." * * * If Billy Graham ever goes to Russia—^as if now appears he will —the men of the Kremlin will find their Godless world crumbling around them. He told how he sat in a little chapel in Geneva with Dwight Eisenhower and 150 others before Ihc conference. He caught, the President in the corner of his eyo as Ike raised his voice in hymn. "The President's face glowed with genuine hope and religious sincerity," said Graham. "I lurn- ed lo a friend and whispered, God will be with that man at Ihe conference . . ." * * * And so today, the people of the world are talking peace instead of war. And to hear Billy Gia- ham tell it for !)0 minutes, the people of the world are also marching toward God once again. The news reports from Washington the nexl day were buoyed by a certain warmth bouncing between the lines. The cynics of the world's news capital were sent scurrying to their cellars. At least for ihe day . .. BABY BANTER By BROWN'S DAIRY I'm looking for and honey I m* il Just be sure thai Ihe milk isn't curdled! milk helps make thi§ g \ gn d of mi)V and honey! And good health tool ieach for a glcm Q f CARNATION milk EVERY day! Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON Tony Curtis doesn't have lo exercise for a long long time! We watched this muscular young man catch up on a good si:: months of strenuous exercises in one day, recently. In fact, for an eight-hour working day, plus two hours o! overtime for good measure, Tony boxed with John Day at Uri'ver- sal-International studio for "The Square Jungle." Not once did a double take over for Tony. What's more, lie finished the day looking as good in the final shot as he did when he first stepped into the ring. And, he was up against a very good boy. John Day, his opponent, is the former Johnny Daheim, an ex-stunlman turned Thespian. A talented youngster with great possibilities, Johnny is. nevertheless, an excellent bo.x- t-r who keeps in tip-top condition. » * » We mention this because, to make a good showing in the ring against a man like Johnny takes skill, stamina and no small amount of ability as a boxer. Frankly, most men in fine phy.M- c;il condition couldn't exen skip rope for a ten-hour session. On one of our hottest days, under blazing lights, this Curtis lad ama/.ecl us. All day, we kept waiting for a double to lake over but. hour after hour the two young players punched away. They only look time out when cameras were shifted to a new setup, or ran out of film. * 9 * Director Jerry Hopper was grinning from ear to ear. Witn his two cast actors doi:ig the fight, he could make his setups as close to the action 'as he wished. No moving back to switch in doubles. Not a single worry about whether the boxing style and mannerisms of stuntmcn would match those of his players. Just a full day's work, getting everything he needed with thj actual characters of his story b^ing photographed from every angle. * * * W$h the aid of veteran U-I assistant director Frank Shaw, who has helped film hundreds of fight sequences, Jerry was getting ;omi. of the best boxing stuff that's been filmed in quite some time. Pat Crowley. Ernest Borgmne. Paul Kelley and Jim Backus, ai! cast members and. incidentally. ALL fight fans, were enjoying themselves immensely. Here was a full day of action to break the ordinarily tedious routine 01 workaday production shots. Even producer Albert Zug- sinith"iook time out from whatever work it is that gives producers ulcers to spend hours just watching his actor-boxers. They were that good! Your Hollywood errand-boy will look forward to seeing "The Square Jungle" press preview. And, if some wise know-it-all character sitting behind us cracks in a loud stage-whisper. "Nict work those doubles are doing!" We'll be templed 1o put him straight by showing him just how real-y it was done! tt v at John Day, who broke into ihe game as a stuntman. got his first big break in the Kirk Douglas film. "The Champion."- A soft- spoken, pleasant lad, Johnny has done very well in everything they've given him to do. Unfortunately, there's an army of nice youngsters with pleasinu personalities, all trying for the same jobs. This time, Johnny is doing a battle - scarred ring champ. His hair has been cropped and dyed a sandy blonde. Perhaps Johnny Day is taking ;• page from the history of other young players who have reached success by way of the rear entrance. » * * Many of today's leading-men stalled as heavies and surprised the skeptics with their acting ability. When given roles Ilia' demanded more than a pleasing smile, they proved that they had real talent to "showcase." We'd like to see the amiable, capable, John Day get the chance he so honestly deserves! of 1946 might be an entirely du- ferent. person thair the Mrs Smith of 1932. Death or divorce may bring about such a change in a marital status. . The correct way for a married woman to sign any instrument is to use her own given name before her last name, thus, Mary Jv Smith and NOT Mrs John A. Smith. Nor should she use title "Mrs" anymore than the husband should use the title "Mr." "John A. Smith and Mary E. Smith, husband and wife," is the best form to use.

And Legally Speaking A husband and wife team should know that it's as impor'.- ant in sign their names properly on legal instruments as it is important in signing the family checks correctly. John and Mary Smith, in 1032 purchased a home and received title to it in the name oi Jnh'i | A. Smith and Mary E. Smith., husband and wife. In 19-lti they sol,: the house to the Jackson.-. They exeeuled a dee.d. as graniors. i,i the names of Mr John A. Smith and Mrs John A. Smith. Later, in 1950. the Jaeksons decided to sell, and their pio,.- pective buyer requested a title examination. The title examiner rai-ed , n objection to the title on the ground that there was no v, ay 'I knowing from the rcc.ird, whether the Mrs John A. Smith who executed a deed in HM'i was the same Mary F,. Smith who acquired title in 1932. The objection was a .valid one, but one, fortunately, that could be overcome, by the affidavit ol someone who. "! Ins or her owi: knowledge, could state that-the Mary K. Smith who acquire ! ti'le also was the person who ^o'U m 194'i. Here, as far as the title examiner knew, the Mrs Joi.n A.
