Editorial- •'N' He Said His Father Can Lick You Off-Year Struggles to Hold Political Spotlight Next year 34'governorships will be on the btecH^j^ad^f struggle to win them may command mote attention from national jparty leaders than the cohteit for control of Congress.- "* *' f* :i \^..^ : ' There are a ntimber of reasons why.^ ' • ' Foremost is the fact N that normally the control of state governmental machinery, with, all that means in jobs, publicity and *otb er benefits, gives a party substan tial advantage in pressing the cause of its presidential nominee, as must be done again in 1960. Secondly, successful governors are a prime source of presiden tial material. Often they are glamorous figures and the good things they do are widely known. Word of their failures, of the toes they' step on, seldom travels far beyond their state borders. On the other hand, senators, being recorded on one vote after another, in the Washington goldfish bowl, make practically a f business of alienating one group or another. Thus they have marked handicaps when it comes to swaying a majority of convention delegates. For a third thing, when a party is represented by a large number of governors, its national convention delegations usually are more firmly guided and the conventions more disciplined and orderly — a condition politicians just naturally favor. In 1958 the 34 governorships at stake will include 21 now held by Democrats and 13 in GOP hands. Times Herald, Carroll, lew* Friday, Sept. 13, 1957 The Democratic goal will be to hold and" widen-, this edge if possible, while Republicans will be out to take" back the advantage they lost in the big turnover of 1954. ' < The coming battle it heightened by the fact that New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Connecticut' are among the 31 governorships now Democratic, while California and Ohio are on the list of 13 presently in GOP control. Hence the-prizes are big, and the potential impact on the I960 presidential contest could be very heavy. With prospects of their seizing Congress none too bright, Republicans will be very much on the aggressive in the governorship matches, not only in the big states but in such usually Republican but now Democratic reaches as Maine, Iowa, Kansas and Oregon. Consequently, whatever happens in the congressional races, the items on the barrel head in the governorship field make it certain that the 1958 elections will be lively, hard-fought affairs. Thoughts And I was very angry when I heard their cry and these words. —Nehemiah 5:6. To role one's anger Is well; to prevent it is better. — Jonathan Edwards. Pictures Self Object of Plots— Faubus Actions By JAMES MARLOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON W -Gov. Orval Faubus of Arkansas not only has surrounded his actions with mysr, tery but has pictured himself as the target of plots and plans that range from tapping his wires to arresting and assassinating him. He, telegraphed President Eisenhower Sept. 4 that "I have strong reasons to believe" the FBI was tapping his telephones. This was after he used National Guardsmen to keep Negro children from a school' ordered integrated by a federal judge. U.S. Dist. Atty. Osro Cobb of Little Rock promptly said: "such a belief is wholly unwarranted." Knows Methods When newsmen asked Faubus a few days later the basis for his belief about the phone taps, it came down to this: He said he had worked with the FBI in his Army days and "I know what FBI methods are; I do not have the least doubt that they tapped my telephone wires." He has told newsmen he heard of a plot to assassinate him. a plot organized in a Northern city which he wouldn't name. He said he had heard a group was setting out to "bump" him off. In his wire to Eisenhower he said he had been reliably informed that federal agents in Little Rock were discussing plans to arrest him. Eisenhower's press secretary James Hagerty denied this. Faubus hasn't been arrested yet. Elephant Gets Wiggle On, Spurred by Wisconsin Loss By PETER EDSON WASHINGTON - (NEA> Stung by defeat in the Wisconsin senatorial race, Republican headquarters here is ordering full steam ahead on the 1958 midterm congressional elections. In this sense. Democratic Sen. William Proxmire's victory over ex-Gov. Walter Kohler may have been a good thing for the GOP. The Washington angle is that the Republicans' defeat was their own fault—too much smugness. Since calling out the guardsmen Sept. 2 to keep the Negro children out of Little Rock's Central High School, Faubus has pretty much secluded himself in his mansion, which he also surrounded with guardsmen. Newsmen asked him: Why the seclusion and the guardsmen? He said: "For security reasons and others I couldn't discuss." Ordered by U.S. Judge It was Federal Judge Ronald N. Davles who ordered the high school integrated last week. after a state court had directed a delay in the Integration plan approved earlier by both district and ap plellate federal courts. Faubus said "it is common knowledge" someone else wrote the integration order and just handed it to Davies. He has never Identified the someone. After Faubus blocked the court order with his troops, it became clear by last Monday that Judge Davies would summon him to court to show cause why he should not be ordered to stop interfering with the court's decree. But the question then was: Would Faubus instruct the guardsmen around his mansion to let a U.S. marshal through to serve the summons? Newsmen asked him Monday if he'd accept the summons. He said he didn't know. On Wednesday the marshal went to the mansion. The troops let him through. Faubus willingly accepted the order to appear in court. Why, in view of indeeSsfW* ness on Monday, did he do titii so willingly on Wednesday? He said: "I believe in the court J believe in the law of the lind, What would be the purpose of .£a^ dodging around, trying to avoid service?" Since he felt this way» what was his purpose in not sajr- ing so two days before? Feared Violence As his excuse for calling out tfce guardsmen Sept. 3, Faubus s#ld he had evidence that violence wee threatened and he spoke of caravans of people descending on Lit* tie Rock if the school was integrated. The city's mayor, Woodrow Mann, a critic of Faubus' use of the troops, called this statement a hoax. After the troops had been keeping the Negro children from school two days, Mann said: "Ttie Little Rock police have not had a single case of violence reported to them." What evidence of threatened violence did Faubus have? He's never revealed it. Asked by newsmen last Monday when he would disclose the information, he said-. "Sometime when it can be done without violating confidences end without jeopardy to myself in litigation that might arise." If he has such evidence he no doubt will be asked to produce it Sept. 20 when he—or his attorney general—has to go to Judge Davies' court to show why he shouldn't be ordered to let the Negro children into school. Hartford County, Conn., organization. The earlier GOP regional conferences registered considerable en thusiasm for this neighbor • to neighbor idea. If the trial run works well now, the plan is to conduct similar canvasses in aH 48 states next year. Yes, all 48 states. The Republicans are still optimistic about picking up more strength in the South. They think the new civil rights bill will be of considerable help. They think it will help most in the Governor Kohler kept insisting j industrial North and the West he didn't need and didn't want out side help.'He thought "carpet bag­ gers" — GOP politicos from other states coming in to help him— would be resented. He did get some money from Washington, but that's all he'd take. All this complacency colt the Republican* was possible control of the Senate. So how they have to pick up the pieces and see what they can salvage for next year. A letter from National Chairman Meade Alcorn went out to all Republican state organizations over Labor Day weekend urging them to set dates for statewide conferences. These will be follow-ups to the-j GOP regional conferences earlier this year. The plan is to follow the state conferences with district and county meetings next spring. Another type of GOP rally which 24 states have planned to put on will be "neighbor • to - neighbor" campaigns. They are scheduled to begin Oct. 1 and end Oct. 14, which will be the date of President Eisenhower's 67th birthday party. There's a fourfold purpose in these house-to-house canvasses. First is to find the nonvot,ers in each household. Second is to register them. Third is to leave them information on the GOP. Fourth is to get a $1 or $5 donation. New Jersey tried this fundraising technique in a couple of counties last year and raised $80,000 in $1 and $2 contributions. Chairman Alcorn used the other purposes effectively in his home Any idea that conservative Democrats will vote for Republican congressmen is completely discounted. It is even admitted that some conservative southern Republicans might bolt the GOP because of the civil rights legislation. Republican gains in states like South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and* Mississippi aren't counted on in this generation. But in states like Texas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Florida and a few districts in North Carolina, Chairman Alcorn says there is a chance .to elect Republicans. Mail from Negro districts is reported excellent, because of stalwart GOP support for civil rights legislation. Otherwise, the record of the Democrat-controlled 85th Congress is taken by the Republicans as clear proof of the need for having a GOP Congress serve with a GOP j President. In the Republican • controlled 83rd Congress, 70 per cent of President Elsenhower's recommendations were adopted. In the Democrat - controlled 84th Congress, only 46 per cent of the President's program got through. The final score on the 85th Congress, now being compiled, is expected to be much lower. Chairman Alcorn blasts the 85th for "irresponsibility." He quotes a Study made by Vice President Nixon. This shows that in the first six months of 1957, nonmihtary "spending bills introduced by-Democratic congressmen would have increased the budget by 25.6 billion dollars. nails are affected by disorders of the glands of internal secretion, poorly fitted shoes or gloves, dirt and neglect. One of the most important diseases which affect the nails directly is an inflammation around the base — that is in the nail bed. This is the result of infection with germs and its common name is "whitlow." A single nail may be involved or all of them. This results in ridging and sometimes the nail separates and falls off. The treatment, of course, is to attack the infection. In extremely severe cases the nail may have to be removed. Ringworm can affect the nails; and may be difficult to cure.! Psoriasis is another skin disease i i which may cause nails to become j pitted and deformed. White spots, ! or streaks often appear in the • nails. This is most common ' in 'young people, and is on the fin- j gers rather than the toes. I Irritation of the nails from pol- | ishes or lacquers is sometimes responsible for difficulty. In psoriasis, ringworm or eczema of the nails, treatment has to be aimed at the particular disease responsible. 7/ie Mafote fktevt Forcing Child to Save Doesn't Teach Thrift SO THEY SAY I've been revived myself spiritually by what has happened in New York (crusade). — Evangelist Billy Graham. By MRS. MURIEL LAWRENCE On Saturday mornings Teds' father gives him his weekly allowance of 45 cents. He gives it in nickels and dimes. He gives it in these coins so that Ted can at once put aside 15 cents for the next day's Sunday school collection — and drop another nickel and dime in his piggy- i bank. When they're safely dropped. Ted's father says, '^Aren't \ you proud of yourself? You'll soon have another 10 dollars to deposit in the real bank again!" But Ted doesn't feel a bit proud of himself. Instead, his feelings resemble those of people in stories from whom fairy godmothers, djinns and other unpredictable powers suddenly snatch away the magical gifts they have granted. He feels helpless, not proud. He feels it's very confusing to be told you have a 45-cent allowance when you actually have 15. No, I do not believe in forcing children to save money.

So if we want to congratulate ourselves over his economy, let's rejoice over the accumulated coins in his piggy- bank — but not kid ourselves that we have so much as touched his appreciation of thrift.
