Editorial— Iowa State Faces More Vital Needs Than Name "It Didn't Look So Small When I Was Down There" Before going seriously into the matter of distinguishing one of it's* •tat* schools with what has been advocated as a more appropriate name, Iowa might well look first to the still more important matter of providing funds for too long delayed capital improvements at both Iowa State College and the State University of Iowa. Discussion has been somewhat widespread over the state that the name of Iowa State College should be changed to designate it as a university. And there oan be no doubt but that this outstanding agricultural and engineering school is entirely worthy of all possible recognition as one of the na tion's leading institutions of higher learning. But getting a bill through the legislature and signed by the Governor merely to change the name of the Ames Institution isn't going to automatically add to the stature of Iowa State as a great school, be it a college or university. As a matter of fact, both Iowa State College and the State University of Iowa have achieved noteworthy standings in the educational world quite on their own despite the noticeable lack of really genuine cooperation from capitol hill In Des Moines. Legislators and Governors, of course, have made arid' approved appropriations for the operation of the schools, but quite often rather grudgingly. Many times askings would be inflated with the full knowledge drastic trimming was inevitable. Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Wednesday, July 31, 1957 Sorely needed capital improvements went wanting simply because enough difficulty was generally encountered in obtaining funds for current operational expenses. With the problem approaching real seriousness, the last session of the General Assem; bly provided funds for capital improvements only to have the measure vetoed by Governor Loveless. So it would seem only common sense there is little chance of attaining anything even remotely approaching universal agreement on a new name for Iowa State College, particularly since the final action must be taken in the state capitol. One of the principal stumbling blocks, of course, would be coming up with a name which would avoid any confusion as to the identities of the two big state schools at Iowa City and Ames. That problem alone could result in endless difficulties which might conceivably enough lead to recriminatory actions that would seriously threaten even the present high academic and professional standings of the institutions.

Question of Using Troops Had a Long Background By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEA) - The recent debate on the use of federal troops to enforce provisions of the civil rights bill now before the Senate had a strange . background. It wasn't a new surprise package. The same provisions were in the civil rights bill which passed the House last year and this. They were fully debated both times. Then in a California speech before the Democratic national convention in Chicago in 1956 Candidate Adlai Stevenson declared he was opposed to the use of federal troops to enforce civil rights decisions. This was an obvious political bid for Southern delegates. It caused a* mild stir because up to then not even the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People had been advocat-j lng use of troops to secure civil rights. Actually, "the use of troops" was not specifically mentioned in era states have passed laws denying Negroes the right to I allergenic bring suit for privileges supposed-' ly guaranteed them by the Constitution. NAACP is even barred from giving them legal aid to obtain these rights. If these states are now successful in eliminating the federal enforcement provisions of the civil rights legislation, it will completely hamstring the Negro citizen and make him legally and politically helpless in these states. These positions emerge from a two-day strategy meeting of ^t h e Leadership Conference on Civil Rights. This group, representing 51 different U.S. organizations, is the principal lobby supporting the Eisenhower civil rights program. Labor organizations giving active support include AFL-CIO, United- Auto Workers, International Union of Electrical Workers and the Jewish Labor Committee American Civil Liberties Union and Americans for Democratic Action are represented, naturally. so many words enforcement Part posed legislation. The reference is in a routine legal citation to the numbers of statutes already on the books. They empower the President to enforce the Constitution and the law of the land, which he is sworn to do anyway. So even Roy Wilkins, executive secretary of NAACP, now declares that, "We don't see any particular loss if the reference to troops were deleted from the civil rights legislation." While the people with the greatest interest in the civil rights bill are thus willing to accept ' an amendment on this use of troops S rovision — or" any other clarify- >g amendment — they still do not want the entire Part III eliminated. The reason for this is that in the last jew years a number of South- in the disputed Women's organizations include In- III of the pro-! ternational League for Peace and of Freedom and National Church Negro Women. Anti - Defamation League and Am Vets are in it, as are Catholic, Jewish and Protestant church groups. Chairman of the conference and its principal spokesman is Roy Wilkins. Civil rights really need no lobby now, as both Republican and Northern Democratic leaders are supporting them to the limit. But what they are after, Wilkins makes clear, is for the United States government to protect citizens in all their rights. He includes in his not only voting rights but desegregation in schools, transportation and everything else. "It wouldn't be a very good man," he says, "who would be satisfied with only one-fifth of his rights." shots for several years and am getting much better each year. However, there is something else which bothers me. I cannot stand to use any perfume, powder or face cream which contains orris root. Is there anything else I can get?—Mrs. R. A — It is evident that you are allergic to a number of substances. Sensitivity to orris root is by, no means unusual. I believe there are some cosmetic preparations on the market from which orris root has been eliminated. You should be able to find these low cosmetics in almost any drug store or other store handling such preparations. Q — I went to the doctor with the high hopes of being told 1 was to have a baby. Instead, he told me he couldn't tell yet unless I had a laboratory test, which I can't afford. Why can't he tell?— A. P. A — It is often difficult to know with certainty from the clinical symptoms alone in the very early stages whether pregnancy has occurred. It is for this reason that laboratory tests using frogs or rabbits have been developed which will answer the question much earlier. Q — What will happen to a person with diabetes who eats only one meal a day and drinks beer and whisky most of the time. He has started gaining a lot of weight.—Reader. A — The consumption of one meal a day and large amounts of beer and whisky together with gain in weight could be exceedingly harmful for someone with diabetes. Every effort should be made to have this individual obtain proper advice on diet — and to follow it. 7%e/Pfafote fht&tt Son Must Break Spell of His Misery-Loving Mom By MRS.

The beam is his fear of his right to enjoy himself. It's the same obstruction that darkens his mother's vision. When he's cast his out, it will be time to start dealing with hers. Right now his problem is not relieving his mother of misery. It is getting rid of his own helpless response to her misery. He hopes that she'll change herself — and spare htm the arduous, grown-up task of learning to resist her power to depress him. It's a childish hope. For this son, I think there is no avoidance of the resisting struggle.

It isn't. The reproach comes straight from his own crippled conscience. Long ago mother shaped it to echo her reproach so that no matter how far away he went from her, it could continue to keep him as miserable as she is. The only way to help her is to start reconstructing it. That is what Jesus knew. We cannot help her without compassion. To feel it for her. we must first wrestle with our own fear of joy—or its grip on her will arouse our hate instead of our understanding. Until we can appreciate what her envy has tried to do to our life, we can experience no compassion for what another parent's envy has done to her life. The Christian assignment has never been an easy one. Hobby Is 1st Nightingat Night Clubs By JAMES BACON HOLLYWOOD W-Ever hear of Harry and Dotty Jameson? No? Then you're not a headwaiter at a swank nightclub or a celebrity All headwaiters and celebrities know the Jamesons. The Jamesons have one of the world's most expensive hobbies- attending night club openings. Naturally, they're well-heeled. Once Harry and Dotty took a plane to London just because Lena Hprne, one of their top favorites, was opening at a smart West End club. Not Surprised Lena, recalling the incident, admits that she was most happy to see them but not in the least surprised. "I probably would have been more surprised had they not been at ringside," says Lena. The Jamesons hop to Las Vegas, New York and in-between! spots much as you and I would go to the neighborhood movie. Once Joe E. Lewis played a two- week engagement at the Mocambo in Hollywood Harry was present 13 of the 14 times the famed) comic took the floor. j Later, he apologized to Lewis j for missing the one show. The 1 reason: his plane was delayed on his return from an Oregon business trip. The Cugats. Xavier and Abbe Lane, are close friends. Once the Jamesons flew to Spain when the Cugat band played in a Barcelona bull ring. |250,0OO 2 -Bedroom Home When not nightclubbing, the Jamesons live in a $250,000 home in Beverly Hills. It's one of the few $250,000 homes with only two bedrooms. Harry is a millionaire. He made it from storage batteries and Ore- i gon lumber interests. He is a big j spender and big tipper. J The Jamesons' reason for lov- ! ing nightclub acts so much is sim- The United States and Russia while their representatives in London have talked about disarmament five months — have been building up their armaments. This, at least, is a tribute to their suspicion of each other. It is against this background.of suspicion—and getting ready, just in case—that the talks have been held, along with Britain, France and Canada. Not Much Optimism It hardly makes for optimism about the outcome of the talks. There isn't much. Now Secretary of State Dulles has gone to London for a personal look although Harold Stassen, the American representative, has been keeping this government informed. Dulles made the trip on orders from President Eisenhower. Officials here said Dulles will decide whether to continue the talks or call them off. If for no other reason than world 'opinion, Dulles may want the talks to go on ao long as the Russians are willing to talk or listen. In the end, therefore, the talks may wind UR in a whisper. Stassen hasn't actually been talking about any major disarming of this country. In a speech last week Dulles made it plain this country would keep its nuclear weapons. Stassen has been talking about early first steps to build up some mutual trust like a suspension of nuclear tests and aerial and ground inspections. Dulles last week even talked ahout opening the entire continental United States to inspection if the Russians would do the same with Russia. This is going pretty far. And it would be a long way off in the future. And when Dulles said that, Young Men at Top Seem: A Dressy By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK <AV-The young tatf-^ who got to the top In a hurry?'* seem to be a dressy lot. A peek iV at their wardrobes finds theril much better stocked than the av-. • erage among their employes —or you either, perhaps. Replies from 140 of ttoe young presidents of American corporations also suggest that they took time enough on their way to shop for. clothes and that they still match the articles carefully before setting off each morning for the executive suite. The survey was conducted by the American Institute of Men's and Boys' Wear to see if the young (or maybe slightly middle aged) top executive was doing right by the apparel industry. Average 14 Suits Asked how many suits each owned, the youthful bosses gave a range of 60 to 3* with the average coming out at 14.3 per man —averages having a way of showing that odd decimal. They buy three or.four suits a year, usually in the spring and fall, but occasionally in between as needed. The corporate chiefs think personal appearance is a help to them in carrying on their present tasks,' and also to any other man headed in the same direction'. But they are much more emphatic about the part the other fellow's personal appearance plays when they are sizing him up. and they stress the impact upon them of a first impression. 29 Shirts Apiece Getting back to their 140 wardrobes, the shirt supply ranges from 100 to 10, averaging 29 per man—with 23 of the shirts plain and 6 fancy. The younger president la well stocked with socks. One man says he has 100 pair* The average has he didn't know whether Congress 1 30, with 22 of them in solid colors would ever approve of a plan like that. Any agreement with Russia — such as another Dulles proposal on starting off with inspection limited to the Arctic Circle- would be thoroughly examined by Congress. And Congress won't be able to do a thorough job until it returns' in 1958. So any agreement could hardly go into effect before sometime next year. Proposals Hedged But Dulles—just as Stassen before him — made proposals so It's shocking that anyone could attack our mother in such a cruel and inhuman way. — Pianist Liberace, on beating two hooded men gave his mother at he' California home. They had black hoods with slits for their eye's, They also had some kind of covering, probably stockings, over their shoes. — Mrs. Frances Liberace, 65, mother of pianist Liberace,' describing men who attacked her at her California home. Q—Which bird has the longest migratory flight? A— The Arctic tern, with an annual round-trip migratory flight of some 22,000 miles. Q— Why are clergymen sometimes referred to as "the cloth" or "gentlemen of the cloth"? A— While the word cloth has come to mean a fabric, at one time it meant clothing. The old meaning is retained in reference to the distinctive clothing worn by priests and ministers. Q— What Is a comparison between the water content of snow and that of rain? A— Ten Inches of snow equals In water content, on the average, about one inch of rain. Q—To what do the Dark Ages owe their name?

For example: There could be a 10 -month suspension of nuclear weapons testing. But this was tied in with agreement on an inspection system which would have to be in business before the end of the 10 months. But the Russians have proposed an immediate and unconditional end to nuclear weapons testing for two or three years and an agreement to outlaw the use of nuclear weapons. The United States, to prevent big surprise attacks by either big power, wants aerial and ground inspection. Russia has accepted the principle of aerial and ground inspection. But Russia isn't clear on whati kind of ground inspection. Perhaps inspectors frozen in one spot. After five months of talk the London fog is still thick.

She can dismiss an unkind or tactless remark instead of brooding over it. She realizes that her children weren't put upon the earth to fulfill her dreams, but their own. She can praise another woman or bear her praised without any temptation to add a belittling remark. She can meet disappointments and frustrations without thinking, She realizes that other people don't really want to hear about her troubles.

She does things for others because she wants to, not because she expects unending gratitude, She can laugh at herself occasionally.
