editorials ftnrricn Ctty Sotwo0y t FcofiMfy 15, 1T44 For a Safer City evidence isn't conclusive but is indicative of what we believe is a good thing for Garden City. Police records show that during the month of January, 1964, there were only half as many traffic accidents as in the same month of 1963. This is a significant reduction. For every one of those complaining about the concentrated enforcement of local traffic laws there are several others who believe the crackdown is both needed and beneficial to the city. We are certain drivers have improved their habits in recent weeks. A reputation as a "safe city" is far better than any black-eyes the town receives due to the arresting of motorists. There has been a pick-up in business in this area since last week's wonderful snow brought its much- needed moisture. The precipitation turned up the edges of the mouths of both rural and urban dwellers. And as this was being written, more snow had started to fall with predictions of more to come. It should be a time to give thanks — a much more pleasant task than complaining a few weeks ago. Several basketball fans expressed dissatisfaction at the officiating of the high school game here earlier this week. Perhaps there were some "bad" calls, and no doubt some infractions were missed. But the sad truth of the situation is that referees are becoming more difficult to obtain. And as a former basketball official stated: "With the attitude of today's fans, there isn't enough money to get me back into officiating." This conviction is spreading among officials.

S. Information, replacing ailing Edward R. Murrow. It happens that Rowan and Molcnho-f used to work for the same journalistic combination — the Cowles Brothers publications in Des Moines and Minneapolis. They fell out when Rowan made a speech in New York stating that some newspapermen were genuinely interested in free news dissemination by government; some were "merely interested in earning a buck." Rowan, then working in the State Department, says Mollenhoff called his then chief, Roger Tubby, hi protest, apparently wanting liim relieved of his job. Rowan then phoned Mollenhoff, told him: "Any job you can get I don't want" Mollcnhoff's move to defeat Rowan as director of USIA is being carried on .through Sen. Burke Hickenlooper, R-Ia., a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, who has told other senators that no Negro is qualified to tell the story of be United States abroad; he'a not objective. Governor Elk*rt Carvel of Delaware is the only Democrat so far who's punctured the great myth of Sen. John Williams of Delaware as the unrelenting in- vesigator. Governor'Carvel wants to know why Williams concentrated on the $542 stereo set to President Johnson but comnletely ignored auproximatelv $508,000 in cash gifts to the Gettysburg farm when President Eisenhower was in office. "Senator Williams was the great and courageous investigator when it came to a $1,300 deep freeze given to Mrs. Harry Truman and when it came to a few $10 hams in the Truman administration," said Gov. Carvel. "But when it came to thousands and thousands of dolars worth of gins to President Eisenhower for bis Gettysburg farm, Senator Williams said nothing. He put bis tail between his legs like a whipped dog. He was the great snooper during the Truman administration, and he started snooning again under tion, under President Eisenhower, he didn't want any snoopers around." LBJ •• President is riding herd on the Senate just as carefully as he did as Senate majority leader. It isn't supposed to be published, but Johnson has prepared, in cooperation with Senate ead- ers, a tentative schedule of hearings for the Appropriations Committee, which has jurisdiction over the money bills. These are the bills which really turn the machinery of government, and at the last session some of them were delayed until a few days before Christmas. In the interim, government bureaus had to function on temporary funds. But this year the (Johnson schedule calls for hearings on the foreign aid bill — one of the most controversial — to start in the Senate on June 1 and be over by June 19. In the past, foreign aid hasn't been taken up until around August. Johnson is pushing so hard on this, that 10 days ago he staged a special White House dinner with congressional leaders to discuss the form of the foreign aid biU. Also on the tentative schedule: The Interior Department hearings are set for Feb. 19, to be finished by March ft. with action on the House floor March 17. The Treasury-Post Office bill Is scheduled for hearings on April 1 ending April 7, with House action March 24. The labor-HEW appropriation* hearings are scheduled to end May 15, Defense Department hearings May 20, State, Justice, Commerce, and the Judiciary bearings are to end May 22; Independent offices May 29; Public Works on June 10. That's how LBJ is trying to keep in the groove the most uncontrollable legislative body in the world. Fun at th« Dcnrlct't — National Children's Dental Health Week featured oversized toothbrushes and a set of oversized toy teeth as a gimmick to dispel children's fear of dental care. The idea was hatched by Mrs. Helen Blumberg of Rydal, Pa., when her 4-year-old screamed at the thought of going to the dentist. She decided that visits to the den- 1st should be made a game, not a nightmare, and that toys illustrating the fun of tooth care were bassador to Switzerland True Davis has made a hit with the Swiss by using his business know- how to help solve their labor shortage. To man their booming factories, the Swiss have already imported 800,000 foreign workers. Davis suggested that instead they introduce a little mor* automation, to reduce he need for manpower. The Swiss were so intrigued that Ambassador Davis has arranged to exhibit some of the latest American automatic devices at an industrial fair in Zurich.
