He has one of the most important jobs in the nation. Yet there is need for some explanation as to hi$ most recent ruling that the army can no longer have or use guided missiles with a range of more than 200 miles. This function, trie Secretary now declares, shall be exclusively the property of the air force. In ,the first place, many millions of dollars have been spent by the army in developing its own guided missile program as a modern development in its anti-aircraft branch. What does Mr Wilson propose? Are the army's installations to be .abandoned? j • . ,,During the past few years, as guided missile's have been developed and become the chief defense against potential .enemy aircraft, the army and air force have worked together well. The air force did the flying; the army had the fob of defending on the ground against possible enemy attack. Good cooperation between the two branches of the armed services wds main- tpined. Mr Wilson seems to want to smash all of that. The army has been developing "Jupiter," a long range missile that might be termed a successor to Nike, which has been pretty well pub- Ijcized. Nike is a comparatively short range guided missile. Now Jupiter is out, so far as the army is concerned. Along with the curtailment of the army's t missile .program, the Secretary has also decreed that the army ,no..jorjger, cdn provide its own airlift operation of troops, supplies, etc. in airborne operations. Maybe Mr Wilson is solving some problems. And then again, perhaps he is just creating new ones. We'll see. * * * . SCRATCHED BALLOTS Indianola Tribune —• We have lately witnessed an election that resulted in one of the greatest examples of split-ticket voting that this country and state have ever seen. While overwhelmingly backing President Eisenhower's bid for a second term in the Whitehouse, Iowa voters at the same time refused to reelect as governor a man who ran on the same ticket. Somewhere around 100,000 persons who voted for Ike moved into the Democratic column and cast their gubernatorial vote for Hors'chel Loveless. But they didn't stay in the Democratic column for long. They switched right back to a republican lieutenant-governor, and then gave republican candidates lor all other state offices a big.majority. • There were a lot of voters who crossed party lines again when voting for 5th district congressman, but here the president's coattails were just barely long enough to pull Paul Cunningham back into office. He was re-elected by an official margin of under 2,500 votes, and surely this number can be attributed to the pull the Eisenhower name added to the republican side of the ballot. When Warren county voters reached the county ticket, 'scratching' was really the order of the day. While Adlai Stevenson wus given only 3,734 votes in his quest for the presidency, many of the Democratic candidates for county offices piled up over 4,300 votes. Had it not been for the fact that so many of the independent voters got started in the 'Eisenhower' column at the top of the ticket, it would be safe to assume that the Democrats would have penetrated much deeper than they did into the county courthouse. As it is, they succeeded in electing a county official for the first time in 20 years. * * • HE WON DESPITE THEM Grundy Register — Every daily newspaper in Iowa bill one, The Democrat at Davenport of which our Henry B. Hook is the publisher, opposed both editorially and through their news columns the election of Herschel Loveless for' governor of Iowa. At least nine out of every ten local and weekly newspapers in the state wore carrying the torch for the present governor and belittling the qualifications of the domocratic candidate. Some of thq daily papers and many of the weekly papers helped to promote the smear campaign against the new governor and some of tjicm were paid for doing so. This smear attempt like most of them backfired and put its promters to shame. Newspaper influence on elections suffered a severe blow in the elect; »/i of Iowa's new governor who was strongly opposed by more than 90% of Iowa's newspapers. Newspaper editors who believe in majority rule, should now admit that they were wrong in their efforts to oppose a change of governors for lowu. * * * Nero fiddled while Rome burned, so goes the legend. In rrjore modern times he might hqve played golf.

Some of the Administration's most ardent supporters are expressing their views this way: New York Times — "Our policy in the Middle East for some years has been weak, tentative and groping." Scripps-Howard papers—"It is, therefore, disturbing to hear the President say 'I don't know exactly what we could do about Middle East policy.' " New York Herald - Tribune — "The H-bomb debate isn't over. There are informed and responsible officials in the Eisenhower Administration who are convinced that the issue of limiting H- bomb tests should not be foreclosed." Joseph & Stewart Alsop, columnists — "It was not even a practical policy to leave unsolved the question of the Middle East, which in fact insured an eventual resort to desperate, measures." ING OUT—-The US will "have Fo bail out England and France trom the-Suez adventure by supplying them with oil, and probably loans. With the canat olocked, an oil crisis is rapidly developing and threatening the very foundations ot NATO. Lack of revenue from oil sales will also damage shaky Arabian economies. \ « * • NEW AMBASSADORS — A new team ot loreign ambassadors is being rounded out.

Senatoi George Aiken of Vermont say that 1 1 the GOP fails to modern i/.e, it is likely to be out of office tor a long time.' One reason tor this is that Republicans will not have Ike on the ticket in the 1938 Congressional elections, nor will he be a candidate in 1960. Thi fact is that voters see a big dif- I'eii'iue between the President and his parts', and the different"-is all against the paiiy. » + • DO-IT-YOUflSELF DEPT. — Mrs Marjowc MeClurken, 4u, won a 5300,000 divorce settlemen' from her eonu';:.;-tor husband after testifying he t'ureed her to make htr own false feelh with a do- it -yourself kit.

AhOU 1 live incb.cs y( .snow fell during Hollywood, Calif.'— If enemies of Egypt's Nasser are planning any plain and fancy personnel purges at the Chief of State level, they'd better clear their plans with C. B. DeMille! No! the great director hasn't asked to be dealt a hand in the precarious game of world politics. He Just can't afford to have people running around changing the status quo of Egypt! Any attempt to change Egyptian boundary lines, or shift the colored pins around on Rand & McNally's blueprints of white sand covering obliterated camel trails, could scuttle a fortune in production costs now riding on a Cecil B. DeMille film. Superman, himself, wouldn't dare do that. Even if he had Buck Rogers, Joe Palooka, "Wyatt Earp" O'Brien, and Tarzan in his backfield lineup! + « * An invasion force wiih every intention of making a few free alterations on current maps of Egypt, or blasting & few elastic patchs on her boundaries' can chalk up a surprise-hazard with which to reckon. They might find that when DeMille cops t.,ie thunder of ' Horatious at the bridge, they've burned the bridges BEFORE them. A man who opens the Red Sea at will (and on schedule, too) is the guy they should have consulted about any petty impasse, such as opening a narrow stretch of canal water. This smacks of Daniel, down in the lions' den, yelling his head off for a buggy whip while Clyde Beatty cools his heels in the outer den in hopes of talking Dan out of a job! * » * Be that as il may, Hollywood's perennial genius is left with a large head of Fort Knox-lettuce riding on the substantial nose of Nasser as a semi-documentary leading nhan. Meanwhile, back at the ranch. Nasser has found Boris Karloff's makeup kit and, with the aid ot a passing party of Russian hitch-hikers, is trying on an assortment of "heavy" makeups. As his erstwhile lead adds each new Frankenstein monster effect the healthy shade of Mr DcMillc's Treasury-green lettuce-coloring FADES a trifle closer to a delicate, pastel, slightly-greenish tinge. * » * It seems thai Ihe famous producer-director received cooperation of inestimable value while rebuilding and improving the pyramids and reconstructing a its population to ' constitute H plurality, to the incomparable C. B. for his picture, called for reciprosity. Not one to be easily topped in the Lavish Gestures Department, Producer DeMille wound up the fabulous "Ten Commandments" and began work on an historic documentary. A. fitting repayment for the giant- scale "Open Sesame 1 ' that . unlocked nil Egypt for the motion picture company. C. B.'s king- size presentation covers Egypt from Biblical times to present-day modernization. Egypt was to be given the film negative and the releasing' rights in all Moselm countries, as it so desired.. Patia- Vnount Pictures was to--release ih the remaining nations. Should a new command oust Nasser and take over the reins of government, the "modern" segment will become obsolete for all practical purposes of exhibition.
