EDITORIAL- Congress Adjourns, The Nation s Saved It look an all-night session to finally wear them out, but the long overdue adjournment of the first session of the 86th Congress was recorded around 6 o'clock Tuesday morning. And the Congressm e n wasted no time, one may be sure, getting to their home districts to test their wind and footwork in preparation for next year's elections. Members of the House, supposedly more responsive to the will of their constituents, are burdened with the curse of having to run ev ery two years. With prolonged ses sions of Congress now holding them away from their home districts much longer than anticipated when the two-year germs were established, it is their individual legislative records that loom as all-important in election years. Thus they're anxious to sec how their records in the first session of the current Congress stand up to the critical eyes of the home folks. In the more deliberative and austere U.S. Senate, among the ranks of the Democratic majority anyone not up for reelection next year stands ready, willing and able to accept a nomination in the presidential convention scheduled for San Francisco next July. Leading the band of hopefuls is the youthful Senator Kennedy of Massachusetts who has dropped all pretentions as to his aspirations to become a resident of the White House. He's set up campaign headquarters in an office building near the Capitol in Washington and he has bought an airplane and hired a full-time crew to transport him about the country. But Senator Kennedy by no means has the field to himself. There are countless of his Democratic colleagues likewise readily available should they get the call. Timet Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, Sept. 17, 1959 One«Yar3 Wonder Printed Pattern Only One l/atd Biggest danger all of them face is a prolonged deadlock when Adlai Stevenson or perhaps even a rank outsider might slip in and steal the show. While only the presiding officer of the Senate and a member of the minority party which in no way can be held responsible for the record of the session, Vice President Nixon probably stands in a more favorable position than ever to win the nomination for president when the Republicans meet in Chicago next summer. His completely fair treatment for all in conducting the floor sessions of the Senate won for him universal respect and admiration for his ability. As the representative of the President and the nation in traveling to foreign lands on various occasions his performance likewise gained full approval of all. Thus, he will be difficult to catch in the presidential nomination race. Thus with Congress finally adjourned, the 1960 election campaigns will be in full swing. And in the meantime, the folks at home might have an idea or two they would like to send back with their Congressman or Senator when they return for the second half of the (16th Congress next January.

Controversial Issues Are Still Big Items for U. N. By PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Biggest question before the United Nation's General Assembly's 14th session which opens in New York Sept. 15, is whether there will be any breakthroughs on controversial issues it has been considering for some years. It has a preliminary agenda of 68 items. Most are unsettled holdovers from previous sessions. Barring some now development, it does not appear that the recent crises along the India-Red China frontier and Viet Nam will come before the General Assembly. % One year ago Quemoy and Matsu, Iraq ,and Lebanon were the trouble spots. Now Communist pressure has shifted. Laos is the hcadliner this year. A Laotian government representative has been in consultation with U.N. Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold in New York. Laos officials have said they would ask the U.N. for troops to repel Com-1 munist invaders. Prime Minister Nehru has indicated that India will not take its own dispute with Red China, nor present t h e Tibetan protest against Red China to the United Nations. In spite of those clashes, India still backs Red China's admission to the United Nations. Krishna Menon has again been designated India's chief delegate to the U.N. Algeria is among the hottest Hems for U.N. debate this year. Afro-Asian nations came within one vote of getting this question on the agenda last year. The United States abstained on that vote, making the French unhappy. Representatives of nine Arab countries called on U.S. Secretary of State Christian A. Herter recently to ask for his support. At the conference of African nations in Monrovia. Liberia, this summer, there was unanimous backing for Algerian independence. Last year France refused to take part in U.N. debate on Algeria. The French position this year has not been indicated by President De Gaulle. Sparks will fly on the Hungarian issue which is again on the U.N. agenda although U.N. observer Sir Leslie Munro of Aus- tralia has been denied admission to Hungary. One of the most controversial questions the U.N. will have to decide is continuance of aid to Palestine refugees in Arab countries. Authorization for this relief expires June 30, 1960, having run 10 years. The cost of resettling the refugees has been estimated at 1.5 billion dollars. There are no prospects for liquidating the program. Withdrawal of the emergency force of 5,000 men from seven countries who now patrol the Israeli borders at a U.N. cost of 19 million dollars a year is also unlikely. Similarly, no new developments or solutions are expected in the Korean. South West Africa and other African disputes. What the General Assembly does about disarmament is still very much up in the air. Technical discussions on prevention of surprise attack and inspection of nuclear weapons installations have been suspended in Geneva until mid- October. These talks were not conducted under U.N. auspices, but by a committee of five Communist and five non-Communist countries. If the major powers agree to continue work on this basis, the General Assembly could give its blessing and keep out of it. But there will be some discussion of an Irish proposal to confine nuclear weapons development to the U.S., U.K. and U.S.S.R. This will be opposed by France, which wants to develop and test its own weapons in the Sahara. SO THEY SAY Foot binding was outlawed in China many years ago. The only law that can be applied to American women and their feet is the law of common sense. It's either that or repeal of the punishment laws of fashion. — Ohio podiatrist Burdette L. Anderson, condemning feminine shoe fashions. Such proposals (military bases on other planets) appear to be no more than childish and transpar ent attempts to frighten the public and their congressmen into continued appropriations for space programs. — Dr. Albert R. Hibbs, Jet Propulsion Laboratory scien list. I think Nixon's visit to Russia was a good thing — especially for Nixon.—Adlai E. Stevenson. Nineteen Thirty-Four— Leo Kuker arrived Friday night from Iowa City for a short visit with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jake Kuker. Nineteen Thirty-Four— Joe Daniel's electric and radio! shop has been moved from its old location on the corner of Sixth and Main Streets to the new west building owned by Alice Manning on Sixth Street. Nineteen Thirty-Four— Mrs. Ben Robinson entertained at tea yesterday afternoon as a farewell courtesy to Miss Maxine Bowie who leaves Saturday for Iowa City to enter the State University. Nineteen Thirty-Four— Ralph Harrison arrived home yesterday from Centerville where he has been employed this summer and will enroll as a freshman at Iowa State College. DOGS AT LARGE WAYCROSS, Ga., (AP) — Bloodhounds used to track down fugitives at the Ware County Prison branch dug under the fence and disappeared. Prisoners were called out to find them. By HOWARD SANDUM BOISE, Idaho (AP) —Mention hard times, and 41-year-old Robert L, Romig's blue eyes twinkle. Romig, president of the Golden Sunrise Mining Co., owns gold — maybe a million dollars worth. But at today's mining costs, he says, "It would take two million to get it out of the ground." So Romig and hundreds of other gold men like him in the West are biding their time. "In hard times," Romig says, "if I couldn't get a job and if prices descended, I could support myself indefinitely off gold." Even a stranger can find gold in Idaho — scattered among the bedrock and black sand of Boise National Forest streams, or imbedded in quartz ore. At the old gold town of Idaho City, residents like bo amaze tourists by panning gold from the sand in the street. But it's still too difficult to mine enough to turn a profit. Romig, a school teacher at Grand View, Idaho, now is working with the Idaho Historical Society on popularizing gold mining for fun. Gold-seeking visitors could bring new life to the old boom towns that lived and died in the bonanzas of the late 19th Century. Romig, working two days, illustrated what a typical amateur gold-hunter could do. He went about it much as a fisherman would look for a spot to fish — he asked an old timer to direct him to a likely spot. From earlier workings a half century ago, little bits of gold had filtered into the surface of bedrock. Shoveling away the shallow top earth and scraping the time-weathered surface of the bedrock, Romig filled wheelbarrows full of gold-bearing material. He washed 40 loads of it through an eight-foot-long sluice box, patiently panning out the residue left in the bottom. In two days, from that amount, Romig netted about one-fourth ounce of tiny gold grains, a little pile worth about $9. By TRACY ANN BOYLE (For Her Father, Hal Boyle) NEW YORK (AP) - Daddy is always asking me, "Well, when are you going to start bringing some fresh money into the family?" I tell him that, after all, I am just a little girl only 6 years old getting ready to start first grade. "That's no excuse. Idleness never pays. When I was your age 1 was sweeping out my father's grocery store—for a dime a year," he says. Daddy says somewheres he still has that first dime he earned— mama says he probably has the second one too—but he never seems to have it when I want an ice cream cone. "Well, if you worked for your daddy, I'll work for you," I told him the other night. "But 1 want 20 cents a year." He finally agreed to pay 15. My first assignment was to interview Chuck Connors, who plays on television and is one of my favorite actors. Daddy came along too, so I guess the lunch must have been free. Well, guess what! Chuck Connors is nearly 64 feet tall and weighs 217 pounds, and is strong enough to crush a kindergarten j teacher in each hand. I was so surprised I laid down on the restaurant seat and hid my face in my hands. "I can see your freckles," said Chuck, and I said I hated them, and he said, "I've got freckles on my back, but you can't see them. And I've got four boys of my own, but I sure wish I had a couple of little girls,.too." Well, he was so nice I sat up and ate a hamburger and some strawberry ice cream. Chuck ate a martini and some tomato juice, some chopped chicken liver, 12 cherry stone clams, and a great big hamburger and some coffee, and where it all went I don't know. Actors sure must get hungry. Well, Chuck said he used to play baseball for the Chicago Cubs, and he showed me the little finger he broke once playing professional basketball in Boston. It is still bent—just like a measuring worm. One day a movie company paid Chuck $500 for one day's work on a picture, and he decided right then baseball was just a boy's game. I asked him how long it would take a little girl to make $500 if she only got 15 cents a year, and Chuck looked surprised and said, "Oh, about 3,333 years." Daddy harrumphed and turned red. Well, Chuck said being a West> em star wasn't all hay and oats. He was born in Brooklyn, and had trouble staying in a subway saddla until four years ago when he bought a horse for $50 and learned how to ride. He said he paid an old movie cowboy to teach him how to be a cowboy, too. He also had to learn to shoot a rifle, and now he says he can shoot a rifle six times in two seconds with either hand. I asked him if he could shoot faster than Marshal Dillon, and he asked, "Who?" Chuck said he didn't like violence and that of his last 40 films, nobody was shot in 20 of them, and that he really wouldn't actually shoot anybody, not even for money —not even a producer. It's all an act with him. Well, I guess I won't be doing any more interviews. I'm not going to work for Daddy anymore. I'm not going to grow up and be a nurse either. I'm going to buy a horse and a rifle and go out West with Chuck Connors where the real ice cream money is. Bible Comment- Rich in Human Values Morocco has asked that the French tests be stopped. The 18-member U.N. committee on peaceful development of outer space met last summer and will report to the Assembly. But Communist countries boycotted this group as they did not consider it representative. So its future is uncertain, unless t h e Russians change their policy. Dr. Victor Andres Belaunde, former Peruvian foreign minister and its long-time representative at the U.N., is considered most likely to be elected as new president. The Communist bloc has not put forward a candidate. But Czechoslovakia has proposed equitable geographical representation in the election of a U.N. president, which up to now has never been an eastern European. Canada, Japan and Panama retire from Security Council membership this year. Poland has announced its candidacy as one replacement. The Greeks may have another. Asian countries have not decided on their choice. But Latin- American countries will nominate Ecuador. BY WILLIAM E. GILROY, D. D. The Bible's first, great value lies not in its incomparable place in literature, nor in its immense interest as a human document. Of first importance, of course, is the fact that the Bible is a book concerning God, revealing to man the gospel of the grace of God and the true way of life. Paradoxically, because of that very fact, the Bible is a book of, and for. man. Even if the Bible brings to man the new life that is its great purpose, he misses a vast part of what the Bible has to give if he does not know his Bible in all its varied and realistic story of human life. I have referred previously to a book by Louis Paul, "Heroes, Kings, and Men" because, as a novelist, the author approaches the Bible in much the same way as I have done as a journalist. My Christian ministry through the years has been as much as a newspaperman as in pulpit and church. 1 have been chiefly concerned with the spiritual and moral values of the Bible, but I have sought to Parents who let kids eat lollipops in an auto are suckers for sticky upholstery. (RutL miSsdi Pur Your Idle Minutes to Work; Much Can Be Done Toe-Cuddlers relate them to daily life and problems. When I have written of Bible incidents and Bible characters, I have endeavored to make them presently vivid and vital for life today as well as presenting them as incidents and characters in the far past! The fact is that much in the Bible is downright sensational, and this is a reflection suggested by Mr. Paul's book, which in itself is not sensational, but skillfully drawn from the Bible itself. All of which points up the fact that the Bible is no compilation of dust-dry history. It is a vital, living document for living, a great wellspring and source of information concerning human values. The Bible is best read in its entirety, of course. However, for proper, limited use in daily reading, there are many compilations and condensations which prove most convenient and valuable. They by-pass portions of the Bible, such,as long genealogies, which prove of little interest to those other than serious Bible students.

Others use these tiny gifts of time for making telephone calls, reading (just keep a book mark in a book and see. how much reading you can get done while you wait on first one thing and then another) menu planning, list making, and problem solving. Still others use such extra minutes for really noticing the world about them, watching storm clouds gather in the sky, listening to a bird's song, watching children at play—or studying the people who pass by. People who say they love a railroad station because it is so interesting to watch people know how to use their waiting moments.

Venereal diseases are among the most important of the contagious disorders. One of them, gonorrhea, ranks second only to measles among the reportable infections. There are five deseascs in this classification, the most important being gonorrhea and syphilis. It is estimated, for example, that there are approximately a million and a quarter cases of syphilis in the United States in need of treatment and about one million fresh cases of gonorrhea each year. It is significant that there is no means available of producing artificial immunity — by vaccination for example— against these diseases; consequently control programs must be directed at prevention and early diagnosis and treatment. The frequency of gonorrhea stayed about the same until World War II when it increased greatly. A gradual decline began in 1948, but this reduction has been much slower than that for syphilis. Syphilis rose during World War II and also began to decline in 1948, but has shown a disturbing tendency to increase since 1956. Furthermore, both these diseases have shown a significant increase among teenagers and young adults, evidencing a need for more information on the hazards of acquiring these diseases and the need for early diagnosis and treatment. The diagnosis of both diseases can be made early by proper technical methods, but it is necessary for those who are exposed to seek diagnosis and treatment promptly. A great step forward in the treat | ment of gonorrhea was made with mother, Mrs. Art Johnson. Raleigh remained until Thursday. Mrs. Johnson drove him to Perry where he ook the train for Las Vegas, Nev., to join his parents, Capt. and Mrs. George Johnson. Capt. Johnson is stationed at the Air Force Base there.

Judy Henderson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Henderson, has left for Wayne, Neb., where she plans the development of penicillin, and this is still the drug of choice. However, there are complications: some patients are sensitive to penicillin and possibly — this is doubted by some — the germ which causes this disease may develop a resistance to penicillin. Likewise, it has been fotu'd that the best treatment for syphilis is penicillin and this has made possible the virtual abandonment of other methods. For those patients who are sensitive to penicillin other antibiotics can be used with reasonable success. In the attack on these contagious diseases, prevention is also important. This includes careful efforts to trace the contacts which served as sources of infection. Here there is much room for improvement, if our control over the veneral diseases is to be strengthened.
