' As we pointed out several days ago, this type of operation should help put the brakes On blight spread from homes occupied by relief clients and allowed to run down.

Kerner announces, he lias * * Prestige Move President Kennedy's nomination of Adm. George Anderson, retiring chief of naval operations, as ambassador to Portugal is particularly important. Adm. Anderson, as the retiring chief of naval operations, is a man high in government officialdom, not just another campaign fund contributor to whom the President must be kind. As a naval leader he has, of necessity, gained much experience in international relations. More than that, he is a man of great prestige to be sending to the small but key European nation of Portugal, whom we have not been able to treat too well otherwise in our recent international activities. Our votes in the United Nations, for instance on Angola, have not been such as could have pleased Portugal, who is deeply concerned about that African possession. Moreover, the President, apparently forced by a tight schedule, had to bypass an invitation to visit Portugal duing his European tour. Another encouraging development in the diplomatic appointments front is the selec-' tion of Howard R. Cottam, deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs, as our first full-time ambassador of Kuwait. received" the agreement of union officials to hiring of persons on relief to make these improvements. The governor pointed out that less public aid money would be required in the program because men would be taken off relief rolls for the work. The governor has discussed the program at a conference of real estate, building trades, public aid, and public housing officials and has received the approval of federal officials, including Anthony J.

Bold Venture Notes on Books at Library B.v DAVID EAHL HOLT Librarian "FOHGOTTKN t'lONKftlt," by Harry Golden — Relax, sit back, Enjoy, Enjoy, {mother book by that likable, friendly, kindly odi- tor ot "Tlie Carolina Israelite."! Nostalgic, sometimes rambling, it covers, not a forgotten, bvit a THE LITTLE WOMAN Reflection Reflection of changes in Madison county's, economic life already are coming out of the county's zoning regulations. The new development is oil drilling. The other day we published a picture of an oil well rig used to drill a hole that hasn't yet become a producer. In years gone by, efforts at finding oil in the Madison-Jersey-Macoupin area have proved vain. But hopes always are revived where such sudden wealth is an issue. And the Madison County Zoning Commission is taking the new promised outbreak seriously by proposing a regulation to protect rural home owners from the noise and dirt of drilling operations. The rule would require oil well drilling to be kept at least 1,000 feet away from any neighbor's house. Those clanks could get to be quite a nuisance — especially if they reminded you your .neighbor might be about ready to make a big financial cleanup while you didn't even have the money to invest in such a venture. While he is carrying it out in Chicago, many downstate cities of even Alton's size could well watch its success. Through a non-profit Kate Maremont Foundation, Mr. Maremont is undertaking to rescue and restore some of the fine old residential properties in Chicago to provide living quarters for middle-income families. It goes without saying that squalor and decay are fast taking over Chicago's lower income residential properties, driving her people into the suburbs if they can't rent expensive new apartments, or if they don't care to take advantage of the federally subsidized public housing projects. In the process, it might be pointed out incidentally, the Negro race is being victimized by sharp real estate practices. Many of these public housing projects are replacing old buildings of architectural and structural quality. Mr. Maremont has set out not only to rescue these finer old buildings from the process of decay which involves their occupants, too, but would provide homes in the city for people who sorely need them. In addition he could well be establishing a pattern for downstate communities to fol- 'low. " We have, for instance, many fine old homes in Alton which could be preserved for many years yet and be restored to items of real beauty and tradition, matters of community pride, with the proper investment capital. Some of" these have already been given this treatment. We need more, as a contribution to both the community and to the welfare of those who could occupy them. Switch After all the news of British and American technicians crossing the Iron Curtain, it's particularly encouraging to note a key Russian spy defecting to our side. The news came shortly after that of the Polish army flier who packed up his family in a small plane and flew them over the border into Allied territory. We can make use of both these key people — if we can take their word for what they tell us. Now it will be up to our authorities to determine whether these men are the real goods, or merely a couple of "plants." Tlie book is a collection of anecdotes not unlike the author's previous five best-sellers. It is a little more biographical in content, however. Mr. Golden rightly assures us that the "svalking peddler" was not a major figure in America's past. We are reminded (hough that this segment of commerce "Of course I'm not having a good time! The hostess isn't SUPPOSED to have a good time at her own dinner party!"

The absence of the same breed and type of small enterprizor in the old world substantiates the claim that this rugged individual could have flourished "only in America."

WASHINGTON — The Western World has forgotten it, but tlie first significant sign of a break between Khrushchev and the leaders ol Red China over coexis- days before Mao Tse-Tung or any other top leaders saw him. And none of them gave him any satisfaction regarding tension in tlie Formosan Stait. The Red Chinese did not like K's talks with Eisenhower any more than certain right-wingers in the United- States liked them. Ike Is Pressured Too In fact, it soon developed that tence with the United States oc furred in July of 1958 when Mr. K announced he was taking a trip to New York to attend the United Nations. Suddenly the trip was called off. Backstage reason was a pro- tesl from Red China. The Chinese did nol want their Russian colleague conferring with the other members of the Communist Bloc in New York, a city which they, as non-members of the UN, could not enter. And they also did not want him conferring with t li e United States. The second significant sign of the Red Chinese-Russian break occurred after Khrushchev had defied the Chinese frowns and conferred with President Eisenhower at Camp David in 1959. One of the agreements he and Ike arrived at was that K would go to Peking and endeavor to straighten out the tension which had existed between the United States and Red China over the Formosan strait. The Eisenhower administration had been worried over the Chinese shelling of Quemoy and Matsu and the risk of war. Khrushchev carried out his promise. Within a week after the Camp Pavld talks, he flew to Peking. What happened there has never been fully disclosed. However, the Indian government used to have excellent Intelligence in, Peking, and when I was In India in 1959, two months after Khrushchev's vWt, Prime Minister Nehru con- dinted the report that Khrushchev ,_ | while Khrushchev was under pressure from the Red Chinese not to wtch up differences wilh Ihe United Slates, Eisenhower was inder jusl as much pressure from .•onservative advisers not to patch up relations with Russia. In the interim, the agreement between Khrushchev and Eisen- lower to refrain from public crit- cism while working gradually to ward better understanding, showed results. When Eisenhower vis- ted Rome in November, 1959, two months after the Camp David alks, he got a rousing reception. Sven the Communist Party turn ed out its children with small flags: "We like Ike." The reception was in contrast to the yawns received by President Kennedy, lie first American Catholic president, in the No. 1 Catholic coun- :ry. The difference obviously was hat in 1959 the Communist Party lad received instructions from Moscow to welcome Ike whereas n 1963 they boycotted Kennedy. Finally came the U-2 flight over Russia on May 1, 1960, just 18 days before the summit conference in Paris. Its reaction on Russian public opinion and particularly on the Red Chinese and Soviet right-wingers was identical to tlie reaction which would have iaken place in the United States liad a Soviet spy plane been shot down over St. Louis. Ike Wanted 1'eace About a year after tlie incident, Khrushchev told me what h a d happened at the only Paris meeting which he attended with Eisen hower, Prime Minister MacMil- Ian, and President De Gaulle.

He was a product of our ever advancing frontier. As our hardy forefathers pushed west the 'drummers" moved with him. In fact, the peddler was one of the few frontiers men who was not resented by the Indian. He was, after all, only traveling through. He usually traveled alone. He was peaceable. He didn't even ,vant the Indian lands. He was, lierefore, left alone to peddle his »oods to Indian and white man alike. The peddler was also one of our first venturers into that risky area of commerce, now so popu- ar, called "selling on credit." He reaped benefits from it too. In the south he was the first to sell I vedding bands to Negro wives and rats to Negro husbands. Full Pack Each Way In Oklahoma he was the only white man who could come with- n miles of the warlike Kiowas. He traded cloth for blankets, deal- ng with squaws and warriors alike. In colonial times he learned the valuable lesson that a full pack each way meant more profit. 3 revious peddlers had sold their ;oods in the rural areas, then eturned to the city with empty packs. Trading and bartering on he frontier became the order of he day. And when the era of the "pack peddler" came to an end, the day of the traveling salesman, who dealt in only a single line of goods, was just beginning. Perhaps in the not-too distant future the author will explore the romantic, adventurous story of tlie traveling salesman.

"It would be a mistake to attribute all criticism of the John Birch Society to the Communists. Our investigations have disclosed no evidence of anti-Semitism on tlie part of anyone connected with the society and much evidence to the effect that it opposes racism in all forms. From all sources, we found that there was little more secrecy about the society than any other private organizations; indeed, that since there had been so much publicity about this movement that it is now probably less secret than the Elks Club, Moose Club, or other private groups that accept members by vote or invitation and do not open its meetings to the general public.

President Eisenhower, he said, leaned over to Secretary of State Herter and whispered in a voice which the Russian interpreter, Victor Sukhodrev, easily heard. "I don't see any reason why we shouldn't do something like that." But Herter said no. This, said Khrushchev, was one reason he didn't think Eisenhower ran his own administration. He described Ike as a man who sincerely wanted peace, and it was quite evident from the description of his talks with Eisenhower that he was impressed with Ike's sincerity though not with his efficiency. This ended one of the most important attempts between t h e leaders of the Soviet Union and the United States to bring about better understanding. It was a far more significant meeting than that between Kennedy and Krsh- chev in Vienna 18 months later, one reason being that Eisenhower, a military man, and one who had most 8 years, was in a better position to calm the Goldwaters, the Heatings, and the Strom Thur- monds who have constantly criticized Kennedy's peace efforts. It was Eisenhower's ambition, as he confided to intimates, to go down in history as a man of peace. Khrushchev caught this fact. He also understood the fact that Eisenhower had men around him who differed. It was not difficult for Khrushchev to understand this because he himself has to battle not only the right wing of Peking, which wants war with the United States, but recalcitrant advisers in the Kremlin who argue that you cannot trust tlie United States — just as the right wing in the United States argues that we cannot trust Russia. President Kennedy will have one more chance to pick ly the pieces dropped at the Paris summit conference. The chance will occur in Moscow when Averell Harriman gits down with Russian negotiators to try to reach an agreement on a nuclear test ban, It will probably be the last chance.

Bad organizations do not attract good membership, except on a very temporary basis. When good membership discovers organization is bad, they immediately pull away.

Allen-Scott Report East-West Agree 'in Principle' WASHINGTON — President Kennedy and Premier Khrushchev already have reached an understanding "in principle" to ban nuclear weapons tests in the atmosphere and underwater and on a compromise tie between NATO and the Warsaw Pact. The latter is to consist of an exchange of military missions between the Western and Soviet bloc alliances. Establishment of this relationship would be the first step in an overall plan under which, sometime in the future, a non-aggression treaty would be negotiated between NATO and tlie Warsaw Pact. If and when such a non-aggression accord is reached, it will expressly exclude recognition of East Germany. At the adamant demand of hancellor Adenauer, Kennedy insisted on this and Khrushchev has tentatively agreed to it. With the exception of France, all other NATO members have approved the proposal to exchange East-West military missions. President de Gaulle so far has taken no stand on this; he has said neither yes nor no. Other high French authorities are indicating he will not oppose it, and eventually will probably agree to it.. This closely-guarded Kennedy- Shrushchev "understanding in principle," which is now beginning lo unfold in public, is the culmination of many months of involved and circuitous parleying and maneuvering through: (I) The 30-odd personal letters exchanged between the President and Soviet ruler; (2) the former's recent junket to Europe; (3) Belgian Foreign Minister Paul Henri Spaak's talks in Kiev with Khrushchev this week; and (4) Undersecretary Averell Harri- man's trip to Moscow next week to discuss the proposed limited nuclear test ban. Laying tlie Ground Spaak's widely fanfared trip to Kiev was preceded by another equally significant but unpublicized journey made by the former NATO Secretary General and Assistant Defense Secretary Paul Nitze. They made the rounds of all the NATO powers to sound them out on Kennedy's compromise proposal to exchange military missions between NATO and the Warsaw Pact. This was the President's answer to Khrushchev's demand for a non-aggression treaty between the two alliances. He offered exchanging military missions as "a first step," with a treaty to follow at some future date. It was the President's contention this evolutionary process is necessary to "create the required public atmosphere" in the West. While in Germany, the President personally outlined his plan to Chancellor Adenauer. The soon- Today's Prayer Since we know not what a day may bring forth, O God, give us expectancy that the best may come. Each day, spread before us by Thy hand, may allure us with promise if we receive it as Thy gift. May we meet its challenge as opportunity for fulfillment of the mission for which we are on earth. Grant us wisdom to use our precious hours fioiitfully, that when the evening conies we may rest in Thy approval; through Jesus .Christ, our Lord. Amen. —Paul S. Wright, Portland, Ore., minister, First Presbyterian Church. (© 10Q3 by the Division of Christian Education, National Council of the Churches of Christ in the U. S. A.) to-retire aged leader agreed to go along on one condition—that recognition of East Germany be expressly excluded from a non-aggression pact, if and when there ever is one. Armed with this almost unanimous NATO bacldng — France excepted — Spaak flew to Russia and put Kennedy's compromise up to Khrushchev. The Kremlin ruler accepted it — pending the outcome of the test ban deliberations. But he vigorously stressed to Spaak that "sooner or later the West will have lo conic to terms with East Germany"; that this is one demand Russia will insist be faced. Khrushchev also told Spaak he is prepared to go along on a nuclear test ban limited to tlie atmosphere and underwater. It is the President's theory this will clear the way for an eventual ban on underground testing subject lo some form of effective inspection. Only time will tell whether there is any basis for his optimism. Undersecretary Harriman is not expected to work out the actual details of a ban agreement. His primary mission is to formulate Ihe general basis of such an accord. The specific provisions will be drafted by specialists later; probably at the Geneva disarmament conference now in recess. Signing of a final agreement will probably lake place at the United Nations. Khrushchev has indicated willingness to go there for this purpose. The President and Prime Minister Macmillan also would attend. Their presence almost certainly would lead to a summit conference which might deal with other major East-West tensions and problems — such as Soviet troops in Cuba, strife-torn Laos, West Berlin.
