Editorial— Fair to Express Man's Hope for a Better World "He Worked for Us Once —Let Him Work "Again" Next April in Brussels, Belgium, the first world's fair since the New York event of 1939-40 will be opened. All the early signs indicate that it will be a highly imaginative, stimulating fair which may well leave a strong positive mark on the world's peaceful endeavors. Inevitably, fairs of worldwide scope stress industrial and com- ercial progress as well as sultural development. But the Brussels ex- hibitiomseems dedicated to a deep : er, fuller expression of man's ' urgings toward a better world. With the globe turning in the shadow of the threat of nuclear warfare, there could be no more suitable moment to declare faith— as the Brussels fair does — in "man's ability to mold the atomic age to the ultimate advantage of all nations and peoples." While the world's newspapers tell of guided missiles and atomic warheads and radioactive fallout, at Brussels the big word will be hope. Pervading all the major industrial, scientific and cultural exhibits will be the hope that while time exists man can find a broad common path of peace and fruitful labor. That the nations of the world are eager to join in a display of this spirit, in an expression of this overriding faith in man's future, Is clear from the warm response organizers of the Brussels exhibition have received. Some 50 countries and at least 10 Timet Herald, Carroll, Iowa Wednesday, July 24, 1957 seven international organizations plan to take part in the fair. The great nations particularly appear bent on giving the world a convincing demonstration that they prefer to orient their talents and energies toward rewarding peaceful pursuits rather than sterile, destructive war. Especially heartening from this vantage point is the fact that the United States, heretofore never notable for ambitious participation in the fairs of other lands, will be a leading contributor to the Brussels event. Its pavilion will be the biggest free-span circular building ever erected. The people of Belgium are to be commended for their enterprise and vision in planning and preparing a world's fair dedicated so earnestly to human betterment in a time of trial. It deserves the support and attention of millions from many lands. Thoughts After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.— Matthew 6:9. Father of Light! great God of Heaven! Hear'st thou the accents of despair? Can guilt like man's be e 'er forgiven? Can vice atone for crimes by prayer?—Lord Bryon. U.S. Canadian Committee Seeks to Reduce "Tensions 1 By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) - Reduction of ;'tensions" between Canada and the United States is being given a different twist by a new experiment just launched here. It calls for trying to solve existing differences between the two countries by a Canadian-American Committee of 40 prominent business, labor and farm leaders from each of the two countries. They will act as private citizens instead of through the usual government diplomatic channels. If this effort is successful, it may set a pattern for reducing friction between countries in other parts of the free world — Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and even the Far East. It has taken National Planning Association more than two years to get this new venture started. NPA is a privately financed, nonprofit and non-political research organization interested in planning for future economic development in the U.S. and overseas. Chairman and moving spirit of NPA is Danish-born H.* Christian Sonne, president of South Ridge Corp., New York Co-chairmen of the new Canadian-American Committee will be President Robert M. Fowler of Canadian Pulp and Paper Association and R. Douglas Stuart of Chicago, board chairman of Quaker Oats and former U.S. ambassador to Canada. The new committee will hold its first meeting in or near Montreal some time this fall. It will be a general discussion of the principal causes of strained relations between the two countries. These include: The dumping of American farm surpluses in foreign markets which undercuts Canada's grain export sales. Canadian-American trade bal ances, now running a billion dol- satellites. lars a year in favor of the U.S. and against Canada. Arrangements for increased Canadian participation in equity financing for U. S. investments in Canada. Adjustment of tolls on the St. Lawrence seaway to cover unexpectedly higher costs of construction and operation. Joint development of the Columbia River Basin. Export. of Canadian hydroelectric power, petroleum, and natural gas to insure U.S. deliveries and firm markets. Communications and cultural 1 relations, to overcome Canadian objections to U. S. saturation in radio and magazines. The hope is, says Sonne, that the new committee can find solutions for some of these problems without government participation. No recommendations will be made that are not agreed to by both Canadians and Americans. If the committee comes up with solutions that will require government action, then recommendations will be made direct to the two governments. "Most international problems are economic problems before they become political issues," comments ex-Ambassador Stuart.' He feels that businessmen should be able to solve them without government interference. Canada is America's best customer in the world, and vice versa. New committee Co-chairman Fowler refuses to comment on the theory of Canada's new Premier John George Diefenbaker, that 15 per cent of Canada's U.S. trade should be shifted to Great Britain. But Mr. Fowler points out that this is a reflection of the feeling of many Canadians, that the U.S. takes Canada too much for granted. Canadian national pride resents this. Canadians want to be treated as equal partners, not as ing in her successor 1 on the job of directing activities of the 5,000 active duty enlisted women and 725 officers — the Waves' peacetime standby quota. *> The two four-stripers will participate in the Waves' reunion July 26-28 at Boston where Secretary of the Navy Gates will be guest of honor along with Mrs. Douglas Horton, the former Capt. Mildred H. McAfee who was the first director of the Waves. 7%e fflafate fk*0tt So Afraid of Amy? Stop Pretending You Don't Care Capt. Quick, starting her four- year term, is the fifth Wave director.

It*s known as slip - form paving and the process is attracting wide attention from midwest state and county highway officials. By the end of the present construction season there will be a total of 165.35 miles — more than any other state — placed with this relatively new traveling - form paver. Use on Local Roads Of this total mileage, 121 miles is on local secondary roads where county boards of supervisors' are moving into permanent long-life surfacing with this new economical process. In recent days highway officials from North Dakota and Minnesota, and county road officials from Kansas, have made inspection tours of new slip-form paving in Pocahontas County, and previously placed slip-form paving in Greene and Boone counties. This state's pioneering in slip- form work has also drawn inter­ est via Inspection tours from highway officials of Wisconsin, Indiana, Missouri, Illinois, Michigan, Nebraska and Colorado. With this new process concrete paving can be placed with less cost than the conventional paving method. Such paving can be accomplished under county road budgets to give a permanent road at a low first cost with little maintenance. This factor is becoming increasingly important. The Iowa Good Roads Association, in its July report, states." "It is becoming evident, as was said in 1948 by the Highway Investigation Committee r-e p o r t: 'The maintenanee of secondary roads that are surfaced with crushed stone or gravel . . . presents two serious problems: first, a heavy average annual replacement cost oft surfacing material . . . and second, a constantly diminishing supply of material that can be macle available for such work.' " Developed in Iowa The nation's first slip-form pa­ ver was developed by James W. Johnson, laboratory chief of the Iowa Highway Commission. Slip-form paving was first placed in Iowa in O'Brien County in the city of Primghar, in • 1949. That same year a one - mile stretch was paved In Mason City in Cerro Gordo - County. Greene County, in 1954, built two miles with the traveling-form paver. In 1955, and since then, other counties which have moved into this type paving program include Polk, Palo Alto, Hardin, Hamilton, Wright, Dallas, Iowa and Ida. State highway commission slip-form projects have been approved for primary road work in Buena Vista, Plymouth, Woodbury, Howard and Winneshiek. This paving method eliminates some labor involved In form setting, the necessity of investment in forms and separate mechanical finishing equipment, which means a saving to the contractor and consequently a saving to the county and state. Crow's Nest By J. W Wilson The story in yesterday's Times Herald concerning the city budget for next year was somewhat unusual for these times. The city has found it possible to reduce the budget asking. If approved, the tax levy for Carroll will be less. Surely that is contrary to the present-day trend. Most everything is costing more, but here in Carroll our city government is to cost less. That is good news to ,| everyone. It is not anticipated that the services provided by the city will be reduced in any way, in fact, it is possible that in some instances they will be improved and even expanded. This comes about through good management and administration in the various city agencies. The administration and city council should be thanked by J every taxpayer in Carroll. We should all cooperate with man, agement so that it will be possible ! to continue this trend. It requires \ constant vigilance on the part of management to bring about con! ditions which enable a reduction in the tax askings. It is much easier to go the opposite way. 3 Southerners Found Anti-Rights Talking Points Karl Mundt (R-S.D.) We should not send onr boys!

"The Waves were a novelty in that period of naval history," recalls Capt. Quick, then a personnel management expert. But, she added, "there's no question of the acceptance of women now." In fact, Capt, Quick says the Waves will have a significant role in the supersonic-atomic Navy that's now shaping up. With 15 years' experience, the Waves now are getting top Navy jobs with more responsibility, Capt. Quick says. She got full agreement from Capt. Louise K.

There would seem hardly any reason for surprise if members of Congress, North and South, had done their homework by reading a lawbook for no more than 30 minutes. All Democrats The three Southerners who developed the talking points, all Democrats, are Senators Russell (Ga), Ervin (NO and Eastland (Miss). They got a big helping year. It will be due come January 1. Talk to your officials about taxes. Thank them, if you feel it is deserved. Likewise, criticize if | that be deserved. But make your comments constructive and specific.

Their three points: Russell—This bill would permit the President to use troops to back up court orders in civil rights cases. Eastland—under this bill people could be compelled to be informers. Ervin — The bill would deprive a man of trial by jury. This is the background for what follows: There is an old 1871 law—called Section 1985— which says anyone whose civil rights are violated can sue in federal court for damages or ask a judge to order the violation Stopped. This law covers a very broad field of civil rights. Many Southern Negroes, particularly the poorest, never heard of the law and, if they did, couldn't afford a court fight. So the Eisenhower bill proposes: Section 1985 should be amended to let the attorney general step in and ask for a court order to stop a civil rights violation.

Complaining to the county treasurer when you are paying the bill is not the proper time. For then it is too late to do, any good at all. The treasurer does not set the tax. That office is only the collector of the amounts that other officials have established as the needs. The proper place to make objections is at the various budget hearings.

Didn't Volunteer He didn't volunteer the information. When the House passed the bill in 1956 and again in 1957, both times after lengthy debate, no mention was made of the use of troops and informers in connection with the bill. House members made their big pitch on the trial-by-judge issue this year, but only after Ervin had been talking about it in the Senate for months It was' Ervin himself who made this a prime issue. But it was different when Brownell appeared before the Senate Judiciary' Committee. Young had taken the .trouble to look up the old civil rightc laws which— in addition to. Section 1985—might be affected by Eisenhower's .bill. He told Ervin. Ervin let Young question Brownell about the use of troops and how it was. directly tied in with th> old law to be amended. Brownell blew up, refused to discuss it, even when Ervin chimed in, and said it was an affront to the President. Maybe .Brownell was truly surprised. It's possible he didn't look up the old laws either, and simply had relied on lawyers In his Justice Department to draw up the Elsenhower bill. Detailed Explanation Russell, in reading over the record of the Senate Judiciary , Committee, noted Young's questioning of Brownell on troops. He asked Young .for more information. Young gave him a detailed explanation. On July 2 Russell made a biting speech against the bill, noting the use-of-troops tie-in with it, and denounced It as cunning and devious. This even seemed to be news to Eisenhower, who then began to act puzzled about his bill. Meanwhile, Young told Eastland of the tie-in between the Elsen­ hower bill and compulsory inform* era.- Eastland on July 11 made savage attack on the bill, pointing up the compulsory Informer angle, Monday the Senate voted unanimously to repeal the old law on the use of troops,
