•y Dr«w NEW YORK - When the elite of New York, starched and diamond-studded, crowded into the Metropolitan's new $45.7 million opera house (Sept. 16), it not only made musical history but set some landmarks for racial and international understanding. Down in Mississippi, the people of that state, both white and black, were proud of the fact that a Negro girl from the Chisholm Plantation near Laurel was picked to sing the star role of Cleopatra for the opening of the Met. Laurel is headquarters for the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. And in West Bermany, where American bombers knocked out the opera houses of Munich, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Cologne, the German people will get a feeling of satisfaction at the opening of the new opera house in New York. Because their government donated $2,500,000 to make the new Metropolitan possible, and Vice Chancellor Erich Mende, together with such prominent editors as Henri Nannen of Der Stern, is flying the Atlantic for the opening. In the foyer of the new opera house stands a statue by the German sculptor, Lehtnbruck, officially unveiled last week, which bears a plaque reading: "In grateful recognition of the generous gift of the German government." Austria, which had its famed Vienna Opera House knocked into a mass of rubble by American bombers, contributed the beautiful chandeliers which extend from the dome of the new Met, 23 stories high. And Italy, whose Milan Opera House was demolished by American bombers, has contributed marble plates for the Met's interior. - o - ASSASSINATION QUESTION Less than three years after President Kennedy died in Dallas, SUNDAY-MONDAY TUESDAY- WEDNESDAY! OCTOBER 2-3-4-5 ALGONA HIS NEWEST! HIS BIGGEST! a succession of books has raised nagging new doubts about how he was shot and whether the accused assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, had an accomplice. Now the anguished widow has added to the uncertainty by withholding Information from all but her favorite writer, William Manchester. Jacqueline Kennedy, an iron- willed woman beneath the fragile beauty, has shut up everyone close to the Kennedys. Obedient to her orders, they have talked to Manchester but won't breathe a word to anyone else. She has even tried to persuade other authors not to write about the tragedy, thus seeking to restrict the history of the assassination to her authorized version. When persuasion has failed, Sen. Robert Kennedy, DN. Y., has brought pressure upon publishers. All this has stirred rumors that Manchester's forthcoming book, 'The Death of a President," has been censored by the Kennedys. Last week, he attempted to scotch the rumors by declaring in an advertisement that neither the slain President's widow nor brother has tried to edit the manuscript. However, this doesn't square with a letter in Mrs. Kennedy's own handwriting, which this column has seen, declaring firmly that she "hired" Manchester and would control what was published. - o - PRESIDENTIAL GROOMING Out here in California, conservative Republican leaders are carefully grooming a Hollywood actor to be President of the United States. For the moment they are not advertising that this is their long- range goal. They are taking a step-by-step approach, and the first step is to make the man, a likeable, B-picture star and ex TV announcer, governor of California. This strategy is probably the most important development in- 1T WILL BE "PARADISE HAWAIIAN STYLE" AT THE ALGONA THEATRE SUNDAY - j. EDGAR'S IMAGE- Thursday, S«pt. 29, 1965 Algona (la.)

For while Ronald Reagan, the rightist, was getting votes from the anti-Negro backlash in California, the Republican party in Massachusetts was nominating a Negro, Edward Brooke, to run for Senator; and in the Middle West, George Romney announced for re-election as Republican governor of Michigan on a militant platform of fighting right-wingism. Again, in Illinois, liberal Republican Charles Percy, the Bell and Howell executive, was appealing for Negro votes In his race for the Senate by going all the way to Mississippi to champion Negro rights. - o - - MODERATE REPUBLICANS- BOW OUT Right here in California, Reaganism has already split the Republican party wide open. When Reagan was scheduled to formally announce his candidacy on Sept. 9 - a date he picked after consulting the stars - it was planned that ex-Gov. Goodwin Knight, a highly respected Republican, would appear publicly to Introduce the candidates. But Goodie refused. He told Reagan leaders, "If you bother me I'll blast the hell out of your candidate. I'll vote the Republican ticked but Til have no part of Reagan." ' ;; Mrsi Henry Salvatore begged IKhight'tb 1 change his mind. Her husband is chairman of the Reagan finance committee and she has been a Knight supporter In the past. But Goodie stood pat. Another Republican made poignantly unhappy by Regan's right- wingism is Sen. Tom Kuchel of California, Republican whip of the Senate. Chevrolet Camiro Sport Coupe with style trim group you can add.

KOSSUTH MOTOR COMPANY 14-0115 108 SOUTH HALL AIGONA, IOWA PHONE 295-3554 In the last election, Kuchel, a moderate, rolled up the second biggest vote in California history, exceeded only by the record vote of his friend, Earl Warren, when running for a third term as governor. Today, Reagan backers make no secret of the fact that they are out to defeat Kuchel when next he comes up for election. He is much too moderate for them. This brings up the question of what Reagan stands for, what his experience is, what policies he would follow if elected governor of the biggest state in the union, which, if it were an independent country, would rank seventh among the nations in the world in gross national product. Governing a state of this size and with such complicated problems is not easy. Yet Reagan is the only candidate for governor of California who has never held any kind of government office, never even been a member of a state commission or state committee. He is probably the only candidate for governor in the entire nation with absolutely no government experience. - o - - REAGAN'S RECORD If you look up what Reagan has stood for you'll find that he is against the progressive income tax, believes that medi- care Is "one of the first steps .in imposing statism on our .people," considers Chief Justice Earl Warren a "lousy justice," has described federal aid to education as "a tool of tyranny," and welfare recipients "a faceless mass waiting for a handout." Of conservation he once said, "A tree's a tree. How many more do you need to look at?" And of the John Birch Society which other Republican leaders, from Nixon to Dewey, have repudiated, Reagan said, "I don't believe I have any moral justification for repudiating them." "John Rousselot is a terrific fellow," he also said, of the John Birch national public relations director, who was defeated for Congress because of his extremist views. That is a cross section of the Reagan basic philosophy of government. But under shrewd coaching by his right-wing handlers, who have hired the public relations firm of Spencer & Roberts, he has succeeded in blurring this image. Today he veers away from the blunt right-wingism that used to feature hit statements. Recently when asked what he thought of Chief Justice Warren he parried: "You mean Earl Warren the governor or Earl Warren the Chief Justice?" Then he proceeded to draw a distinction between the two, though Warren as Chief Justice has followed exactly the same liberal philosophy which he followed when governor of California. This blurring of the Reagan Image is the result of a decision by the Reagan brain trust that Barry Gold water's chief mistake was in being too honest. Gold water called a spade a spade, even when unpopular, and even criticized the Tennessee Valley Authority when he was in the heart of TVA territory. People disagreed heartily with Barry, but had to admire his frankness. Reagan's handlers have coached him to avoid this, and like a good actor he has carefully followed the cue of his director. "Human Events," organ of the right wing, reports that he has given a "blueprint for conservatives" by "purposely staying clear of issues." This is the Republican can- . dictate, ruddy and rugged of face but faceless on issues, who may be the next governor of California. U he wins, it will be the . first step toward making him President of the United States. There is something very peculiar about the way J. Edgar Hoover has been breaking Russian spy stories this summer. They have come right after Hoover's image was tarnished by public admission by the Justice Department that he had spoiled Important government prosecutions by Illegal wire tapping and eavesdropping. In addition, the FBI has been prosecuted criminally in the state of Nevada for conducting wholesale wire tapping illegally in Las Vegas. It was after these revelations that Hoover began to crack down on certain alleged spies. The FBI had been watching a retired Army colonel, William Whalen, for seven long years, and there was no particular reason for cracking down on him this past summer. The FBI had also supervised the undercover operations of Frank Mrkva, a State Department courier, for five whole years, and there was no reason to break up the effective manner in which he was implicatingaCzechagent. Finally, an American double agent, John Huminlk, was making progress in getting a Russian scientist to defect. Yet Hoover cracked down on his progress just at the wrong time. This has given the strong impression to insiders that Hoover is simply trying to rebuild his tarnished image after being charged with Illegal wire tapping.

God may not change the way things are, but God will increase strength and endurance. Rely on faith. Ask God not for favors, but for the strength to be a better person. Do more than pray when circumstances prevail against you. Live with your problem; try to do something about it and do not believe you can transfer it through prayer. Ask God for greater faith, not for instant relief.
