Newsman Says Difficult to Tell Friends from Enemies Golesburg R*oister«Moil, Golesburg, "today it is becoming more and more difficult to distinguish our friends from our enemies," Frank Reynolds of ABC -TV, Chicago, told some 2,000 teachers at Galesburg High School today. The meeting was the annual Western Division of the Illinois Education Association gathering, Fulton, Henderson, Knot, McDonough, Stark and Warren counties make up the division. Reynolds substituted for Dr. Carter Davidson, foreign news editor for WBBM -TV, Chicago, who was stricken with pneumonia. Reynolds, a newsman and commentator, was formerly employed by CBS before he took a position with ABC. A few years ago. the enemies of the U.S. could be pinpointed such as the U.S. against the Soviet Union in the Cold War. But now this easy pigeon holing in muddied and pointed to the split between Red China and Russia as an example of disharmony in the eastern camp. As a western example, there is the split between Paris and Washington, he said. Difficult To Tell Reynolds said that when he traveled to various other places in the world it was difficult for him to distinguish good from evil. It is not enough, he said, that the U.S. supply men and money to foreign nations. Often-times this backfires, he explained. In the case of South Viet Nam, aid is not only being used to combat Communist infiltration, but as an instrument to solidify a tyrannical grip on the people. If the U.S. were to drop all assistance to this country, this would leave the door open for communists to walk in, he said. "I hope the American public will not be misled by this modern day 'dragon lady', Mme. Ngo Dinh Nhu," he said. Mme. Nhu, BULLETIN By WILL GRIMSLEY ATLANTA (AP)—A pair of British rookies, Brian Huggett and George Will, scored a surprising 3 and 2 victory over Arnold Palmer and Johnny Pott today and gave Britain the first point over the United States in the Ryder Cup golf series. Huggett, a stocky Welshman, and Will, a lean Scot, took the initiative from the heavily favored No. 1 U.S. team by winning the first hole. They were never headed although the Americans twice evened the match. INSURE AGAINST FIRE Commercial k Dematile Fire Insurance Aik About Out Horn* Owin c Policy PUn.

The U.S. aid to South Viet Nam is a propaganda device which is being used by other Asian nations, Reynolds stated, to malign America. Closer To Home In Latin America, he said, it is often difficult to determine friends from enemies. The rulers or "gangsters" as he called them, set themselves up as being anti- Open Housing Referendum Proposed PEORIA 111. (UPD-The Illinois Association of Real Estate Boards has called for a statewide referendum on the question of "open occupancy." The association, at its convention here Thursday, said the board would support and work for such a referendum. President Raymond 0. Speckman said the group favored "letting the people of Illinois decide in a democratic way whether or not so-called fair housing and open occupancy laws should be enacted by the state." He added, "the association regrets the repeated efforts to leg' islate the involved question of race relations in connection with the sale and disposition of real estate through so-called fair or forced housing legislation. It has become apparent that some legislative bodies have a tendency to act under minority political pressure without regard to the will of the majority of the people." Speckman said the association's board of directors voted to back civic groups in the attempt to gain the needed support for a statewide referendum. Woman Finds Rolling Home No Easy Task Dorothy McGuire, Monmouth Route 3, spent Friday evening watching the football game between Corpus Christi and ROVA high schools. When she returned to her car after the game, she found someone had jacked up the front of her car and had stolen the right front wheel. Sheriff's deputies obtained a description of the wheel and tire, and are conducting a search for the loot.

Reynolds also pointed" to the strong appeal that still exists among the masses of people in Latin America for Castro. He added that he was glad that Castro took over Cuba rather than a place like Brazil. "Our true friends," he said, "are not those who speak against anti -communism, but are those who are seeking reforms in Latin America." There is a choice between peaceful and forceful revolution in Latin America. A forceful movement, he said, could lead to another Castro, possibly next time in a large more powerful country. The trouble with people today, he said, is that they seldom read beyond the headlines in the news. To know what is going on in the world the public must study and analyze the news. He charged teachers to awaken young people to the fact that the world is complicated.
