—V (jr Editorial-* Senator Johnson Serious Contender for ..This Missile Could Be Directed Into Any Part of the World . . Quite a few knowing politicians In Washington believe Sen. Lyndon Johnson of Texas, the Senate majority leader, intends to make a serious bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. . . • • In lawmaking circles, Johnson's stock is very high right now. Veterans of both parties have nothing but praise for his management of affairs in the 1957 session of Congress. He is viewed as a master legislative technician, shrewd In maneuver, superb at piloting a proposal to passage. But members of Congress do not nominate candidates for president. The important questions are whether Johnson really does want the nod. and what effective strength he might muster toward getting it. Effective strength means delegate votes in the national convention. That is the only testing ground that matters. No one, of course, can be sure exactly what is in Johnson's mind. But his behavior in Congress, particularly his increasing efforts to advance imaginative policy proposals, strongly suggests to his colleagues and to most observers that he wants the 1960 nomination. Though it is earty to say, the chances are good that he could put together a big block of southern delegates, possibly 300 or more. If he did that, unquestionably he would be a figure to be reckoned with at convention 'time. But he understands better than many that it is a long way from that point to the nomination. The Times Herald, Carroll, l«wl 4% Tuesdiy, Sept. 16; 1957 J After 10 Years of Talk— experts" consider it 'axiomatic in the Democratic party that a win ning candidate must pie acceptable to both the Nor^h and the South and!must be able to draw delegate strength from both ereas. ' Whether Johnson could achieve that objective is the < issue. His popularity in the Senate might be of some help in pertain western states.represented now by Democratic senators. Often, however, experience shows that It is the governors, not the senators, who call the turn at conventions. And some of the biggest and most powerful states have, no Democratic senators. « Broadly speaking, there are no clear signs, at this-time that Johnson would be acceptable to the North. Civil rights and other issues make it extremely difficult for him to gain a wide base in that sector. If, under air the expected handicaps? Johnson were to achieve countrywide support in his party in the next three'years, he would have to be hailed as master politician, as he is now called master lawmaker.

Try 'Toll Road Arithmetic' Bible Comment— Dare to Be a Daniel By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON -(NEA) — Superhighway toll turnpikes — hailed only a few years ago as the solution for America's cross-country traffic congestion problems — are recognized today as a not-so- good answer. The reason is a simple problem in arithmetic which few car owners have taken the trouble to figure. struction, though they pay toll- road charges without protest. The 2.500 miles of U.S. toll roads that have been built are given credit, however, for showing the public the advantages of a super-highway system. Without the toll-road examples, it would probably have been difficult to get Congress to pass the 1956 Highway Act. It provides for building a 41,000- munity, youngsters who develop symptoms of a slight cold with fever should be kept at home and away from their playmates. The fever is slight at first, but goes up gradually. A dry cough is likely to be present and this \fends to become gradually worse. The rash which follows in a few days usually comes first on the forehead and behind the ears. From here it spreads rapidly over the neck, trunk and down the limbs. It is usually fully developed in two or three days. Fading of the rash starts in another two or three days. Those who are exposed to measles can be prevented from developing a severe attack by an injection of gamma globulin. Antibiotics may be helpful to prevent or treat some of the common complications. By WILLIAM E. GILROY, D.D. What are the typical hymns or songs that young people in the churches are singing? My own observation recently has been limited, but until a year or two ago I was active in interim pastorates in various churches. I was pleased to note a return to what seemed to me substantial and vigorous hymns of faith and life in contrast to some former senti- mentalisms and popularizations. In most churches, a common preference seemed to be for the "Crusader's Hymn."

A pleasant, highly personal view of northern for women readers The Lord's Oysters, by Gilbert Byron. Brimming with laughter, warm nostalgia and affectionate The average charge for driving' mile interstate network of super on the 2,500 miles of U.S. tolH highways connecting all state cap- roads now in operation is a cent SO THEY SAY and a half a mile . If the average car owner gets 15 miles to the gallon out of the family bus, this means that he is paying the equivalent of an additional gasoline tax of 22.5 cents a gallon (15 miles at 1.5 cents a mile) just to drive on a toll road. ' When it is figured further that the average price of super-grade gasolines is now around 32.5 cents a gallon, this 22.5 cents a gallon of added costs brings the gasoline price equivalent to 55 cents a gal- llon for toll-road driving. "If more motorists took the trouble to figure this out," says one highway official, "there'd be no clamor for toll roads." There may be more safety on tell roads. They may be less fatiguing on drivers. There are no stop lights and there is more speed. But every one of these advantages has to be paid for. The New York-Chicago toll - road charge via the New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana turnpikes is nearly $11. Across New York it is $6.10. Across Massachusetts, $2.45. Kansas. $3.80. Bureau of Public Roads experts cite these factors as reasons why increases of one or two cents a gallon in state and federal taxes to pay for new free highways is cheaper than driving on toll roads would be. Yet car owners scream protests when gas taxes are raised to pay for new highway con- itals and most cities of over 500, 000. Its cost will be 28 billion dollars to the federal government, 2.8 billion to the states. The cost of this program in additional gasoline and auto supply taxes on the average motorist is estimated at about $8 a year. This is> considered cheaper than what motorists' added costs would be for riding on toll roads. Further recognition that toll- roads do not provide the answer on U.S. highway travel was given when Bureau of Public Roads re : cently announced that 2,100 of the 2,500 miles of existing toll roads would be made a part of the interstate network. There was no protest. In fact, the 15 states involved were all for it. New Jersey, We,st Virginia, Maine and northeastern Pennsylvania turnpike extension were the principal routes excluded. Final decision has not been made on the Fort Worth-Dallas turnpike. New Jersey' turnpike i. now carrying near-capacity traffic. It was recognized that a parallel route may have to be built by* the time its bonds mature and tolls are lifted.

In her letter she says, "Most of the girls don't have such snoopy parents." Snoopy is hardly a just word for parents who are concerned enough to want to keep track of where she is and who her friends are. Loving would be a kinder and fairer word.
