ED I TOR IAL- Proof of the Pudding Lies in Eating Thereof On its face, Soviet Premier Khrushchev's plan to wipe out his and all the world's armies in four years has the innocent appeal of simplicity and completeness. Unquestionably this key feature was offered with the deliberate intent of catching the fancy of billions around the globe who are desperately hungry for a durable peace. Well, then, let's play it K's way for a moment and take him at his world. If, as he proposes, we were to abandon all military forces save those needed to preserve internal order, obviously the lime for any kind of military secrecy would be past. If there arc to be no armies, no air forces, no unclear weapons, no military schools, then no nation on earth can have anything to hide from any other. Let a corps of Pnitcd Nations inspectors therefore roam freel y across all borders, to sec that this total disarmament is in fact being achieved everywhere — as planned and promised. What can be the objection to this simple enforcement check if the intentions of all nations arc honorable and their performance is matching? Khrushchev has presented a plan that fairly drips with innocence. Let him prove his innocence. Let us demand of him that he underwrite his grand gesture by the supreme act of good faith — by letting the world sec that Russia will substantiate its pledges by disarmament free of all cloak. Nothing we know today gives us great hope, of course, that he will in fact do this. The words are big Times Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, Sept. 24, 19S9 but the Soviet performance puny. Khrushchev dared to blame the West for the long post-war stalemate over disarmament. Any schoolboy who can red the record knows that times without number, sensible and solid Western proposals have foundered on the persistent Russian refusal to allow enforcement procedures that meet even minimum standards of adequacy and safety for the free countries. Furthermore, on this occasion Khrushchev again rejected proper inspection, saying this should come only when disarmament has been completed. This means only when the West has committed itself beyond recall by destroying its vital nuclear shield. This amounts lo his saying. 'When you have abandoned all security, I'll let you see what I've done." Khrushchev sees real inspection as a Western espionage plot. But who needs to say if we arc all honestly destroying our weapons?

Size Hi Around the Rotunda With Harrison Weber, Iowa Daily Pros* Assn. Writer DES MOINES — U.S. Senator Bourke B. Hickenlooper is said to be in line for appointment as a federal judge if Congress creates a new judgeship for Iowa next year. Just before Congress adjourned for the summer the Senate judiciary committee approved cfor passage a bill authorizing appointment of 22 district court judges — including one for Iowa. There is a gentlemen's agreement that if Congress approves the new judgeships, President Eisenhower will appoint as many Democrats as Republicans to the posts'. In addition to the 22 district court judges, the bill in Congress also provided for appointment of three more circuit court judges. Hickenlooper, who was first elected to the U.S. Senate from Iowa in 1944. is a graduate of Iowa State University. He also has a law de- * DR.

The problems in the relationship of grown people of different generations in the same family often are not easy to solve. The rewards, however, of a successful and happy relationship between elderly parents and grown children arc considerable, and the penalty for failure to solve them reasonably smoothly is often reflected in the health and happiness of the members of both generations. The responsihlity for working out the living conditions and many other details often rests principally with the younger generation, though elderly people likewise, if By JERRY BENNETT NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEA) -Rep. Sidney II. Yates (D-Ill.) tells the story of a congressman's young daughter, who after hearing her dad cuss Ike's housing bill veto, prayed: "Bless Mother and Daddy, and please, dear Lord, take good care of Yourself for if anything happens to \'ou we have nobody we can depend on except President Eisenhower — and frankly, he hasn't quite come up to Daddy's expectations." Paul Cooper, who manages a local foreign currency exchange firm, has found that it doesn't pay to promote the money business. Late one afternoon, he put a couple of two-dollar bills in his display window along with a sign which read: "Which Bill Is Counterfeit?" Upon arriving for work next morning, he was greeted by two Treasury agents. "Which bill IS counterfeit?" one of them asked. Paul answered that neither was phony. He explained that the exhibit was just an advertising stunt and that he had no intention of doing anything wrong. The T-Men politely urged him to come up with a new gimmick. They explained that Uncle Sjajn seriously frowns on displaying U.S. currency and implying that hard cash will bounce. Lovely Flame Restaurant vocalist Diane Ross is flabbergasted by a diner's criticism of her singing. An unidentified State Department- type recently told her, "You put too much emotion into your songs. Love songs, like politics, should be handled with diplomacy."

Afghanistan Ambassador Mohammed Hashim Maiwandwal, a former newspaper editor, by the way, has a good formula for getting out of making a speech. This was actually worked by a diplomatic friend of his: The speaker rose and asked his audience if they knew what he was going to talk about. The subject had already been announced, so the audience all said they did. "In that case.'' said the diplomat, "1 won't have to make a speech." So he sat down. But the audience protested, so the diplomat rose to ask another j t | u question. "How many of you don't know anything about what I am going to address you on?" The audience now all indicated they didn't know. "In that case," said the diplomat, "you are all ignorant, and there's no use talking to you." He sat down again.

When I referred to Robertson's sermons some time ago I suggested that interested readers might probably find them in local libraries. Mrs. J. G.

My own scven-volumes-in-one. a comparatively large book, was published by Harper Brothers, of New York, in 1898. I have not inquired whether it is still in print. As the sermons were in my heart and life, rather than on my bookshelves, I have sent my copy to Mrs. Crisp, with the suggestion that if she does not wish to retain it she might pass it on to others, or put it in the local library. If it should be out of print, I venture a suggestion. During the years that my editorial work in Boston occasioned frequent visits to New York I spent many happy 1 ' ing top posts in the C-D ranks.

Vol. 6 Published by the Students of Carroll Junior High and Elementary Schools No. 1 NEW JR. HIGH ROOMS Several changes have been made in the junior high, making space for two additional rooms for the English, reading, and social studies classes. The changes were made so that the entire junior high could be in one building. The original study hall has been divided into two rooms. One remains as Mr. Pease's math room and the other issued by Mrs. Throckmorton for her seventh and eighth grade classes. The band room has been moved to the high school, making room for another classroom. Since this is an unusually large room, the junior high library is in one part and Mrs. Weaver's classroom in the other. New lockers have been purchased to replace coat hangers for the three new rooms. Ross Brown The newly formed Insurance Institute for Highway Safety which is headed by former Iowa Safety Commissioner Russell I. Brown has an annual budget of one million dollars. Ten grants-in-aid totaling $400,000 have been approved by the budget committee, the largest being a $160,000 grant to the Northwestern University Traffic Institute. The major purposes of the Institute's program are two-fold. First, to promote action programs in cooperation with federal, state and local agencies and officials, both public and private, and secondly, to provide financial or other assistance for agencies conducting or supporting effective highway safety programs. Land Values A great many people feel the building of a highway destroys their property values. Highway officials say this is not true. A good case at point is a woman who owned a farm just north of Des Moines. The interstate cut her land in two and she thought she was ruined, even though the state paid her for the land it needed for the superhighway plus damages for the severance. This property was worth about $350 an acre before the highway came. Recently she sold 11 acres to one of the major oil companies for $45,000. JR. HIGH FOOTBALL We have 33 boys on our squad this year, and they are all working hard trying to learn the plays that will be used during the season. We have four games on our schedule, starting September 28 with Jefferson here. Our games will be played in the afternoon starting at 4:30, or sooner if possible. Other games are October 12, Lake City there; October 19. Denison here, and October 26, Sac City there. We hope the boys have a lot of fun, and also that they have a good season. JR. HIGH SCIENCE The junior high science room has begun to have the appearance of a miniature museum as students bring in interesting specimens they have found during their.fall wanderings. The present problem is to get them sorted into groups and classified the way a professional biologist would do. After turning in several insect collections, the seventh grade has discoverd why spiders and centipedes are not insects and why caterpillars are not true worms. The eighth grade can answer such provacative questions as "Why do leaves change their colors in the fall?" Our science unit of Living and Non-lving things has been very In* teresting. We made booklets for our bulletin board that contain individual reports about animal groups. Mrs. Fister helped us to make an attractive cover in art. Boos, mitterflics and many kinds of insects have found places cn our science table. Wc have wasps which hatch out daily In a plastic container and various seeds and plants found around our homes. In language we made newspaper articles containing headlines —• "Taffy Comes to School", "Talking Parakeets in Our Room", and "Insects in the News." We have three new pupils in Mrs. Reardon's room. Christy Dryden has moved here from Glidden, Connie Scott comes from Fort Dodge, and Scott Richardson is from Houston, Texas.

This week we are making autumn leaves of various colors for a bulletin board. Some of the children began reading in a different book "On Cherry Street." The tadpoles were collected on our conservation trip to Lake View have survived. They seem to enjoy our room. THIRD GRADE The third grade started the year with 47 pupils. Our teachers are Mrs. Winnike and Miss Sell. Miss Sell is a new third grade teacher, taking Mrs. Nielsen's place. Our homes have proved very interesting for social studies. We are styding about how they are built and who helps to build them. We also have made blueprints of our homes for our homes scrapbook. The fall season with its colorful leaves is our topic for science. We arc trying to find out why the trees lost their leaves. If you hear some songs like "The Farmer in the Dell", or "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" coming from the third grade rooms, don't be too surprised, for that' is one way to help us gain rhythm in cursive writing. This is a new venture for us, and we are really enjoying it.

Barels will open a dentist's office in the clinic of Drs. Anneberg and Martin at Fifth and Court Streets about October 1, according to an announcement made today. NEW GRADE TEACHERS We have four new grade teachers this year. Mrs. Campbell is teaching lower grade music three days a week. Mrs. Bentley has taken Mrs. Kluegel's place as teacher of the Special Education class. Miss Sell is the new third grade teacher and Miss Eaton has taken Miss Kaiser's place in sixth grade. Miss Kaiser is spending the year at college in Storm Lake. In college Miss Eaton majored in speech and English, but she changed to elementary teaching. She will get her degree in two more summers of college. She enjoys painting, dancing, and music. Her home is in Tipton, Iowa. Sewing and piano playing are some of our new third grade teacher's favorite pastimes. Miss Sell lived in Sumner and got her degree at the University of Iowa. She has also attended a college in South Dakota and Iowa State Teachers' College at Cedar Falls. Before coming to Carroll she taught for five yea»s in Tipton, Miss Eaton's home town. SECOND GRADE Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Bock each have 22 children this year. In Mrs. Miller's room there are eight boys and 12 girls, and in Mrs. Bock's room 12 are girls and 8 are boys. In science we have finished our seed units, and now we will do summary stories. We went to the art room and drew pictures of our homes. We have made "Hello David" murals for the hall. These show David's country school and his city school. FIRST GRADE We have been working in our book Before We Read. It contains a pre-reading program to develop the correct attitudes toward reading, to promote oral language and thinking skills. Likeness and differences, left to right visual training, and story telling are all carried out by use of symbols and pictures. Mrs. Fister invited us to the art room last week. We talked about what makes a good breakfast and why it is important. Then we made pictures of our family eating a good breakfast. We have the pictures in our rooms. We have been having a good time talking about our pets. Many of us have a dog or kitten. Some of the children wrote a story about pets and how to care for them. Our time in numbers has been spent recognizing, writing, and understanding the numbers to ten. We count different objects and do many activities that ask us to count.

Golden Link Rebekah Lodge Resumes Meetings (Tliiirs llcriild Newn Servire) COON RAPIDS - Golden Link Rebekah Lodge met Monday evening at the IOOF Hall in Coon Rapids for the first meeting since the summer recess, with 21 members present. A certificate was received showing the lodge to be on Ihe Honor Roll for Commissions this year. A letter from Virgil Bowers of Iowa City, thanked the lodge for the contribution of $150 toward the Hospital Fund. The charter was draped for one of the members, Mrs. Clyde Logan, who passed away since the last meeting. Mrs. George Grim, Gertrude Horning, Mrs. Harold Smouse, Mrs. Charles Moore and Mrs. Leverne Smith participated in that ceremony. Lunch was served at tables centered with bouquets of fall flowers by Mrs. Neal Whitten, Mrs. Amos Howard and Mrs. Allen Headlee. The next regular meeting svill be Sept. 28, when the lunch committee will be Mrs Clarence Neilsen, Mrs. Duane Herron and Mrs. Kenneth Betts. SIXTH GRADE "You and Your Friends" is the title of the health unit now being studied by both sixth grades. Since this unit provides some interesting information about the body and how it works, what makes us feel and act as we do, good grooming, what to say and do in social situations, and how to be a good sport, we felt that it would help to get us off to a good start in sixth grade. FIFTH GRADE We have 51 pupils enrolled in fifth grade. There are 25 in Miss Hurd's room and 26 in Mrs. Kuhlman's. Miss Hurd has four children who were not in our school last year. They arc Tom Dryden from Glidden, Keith Wollesen from Prattsville, Alabama, Vicki Michael from Logan, and Jerry Landreth from Carrizozo. New Mexico. New students in Mrs. Kuhlman's room are Randall Whitmore from Storm Lake, James Kennebeck from Lidderdale, and Sharon Kay Jepsen from Carrizozo, New Mexico. In social studies we have been reading about how the thirteen colonies were united and worked together to form a new and independent nation which gives us rights that are basic to our democratic life. In science we are finding out how living things help and harm each other and also why it is necessary to conserve living things that are valuable to us. We went to the art room. Mrs, Fister helped us to make pictures of fall flowers. Vail Couple Given Housewarming Party (Times Herald Ncwi Service) WESTSIDE - Mr. and Mrs. Jim Mielk of near Vail were honored with a surprise housewarming party Saturday evening.
