EDITORIAL- The Over-all Image Is Carried To The Polls A good many knowledgeable observers seem not to understand one of the fundamental facets of American political life, which is that, most oof the time voters do not make their judgments among men and.parties on the basis of specific policies and events. Right now, for instance, it is being argued in some quarters that if nothing big comes out of the Khrushchev-Eisenhower talks and the general exchange of visits, serious damage will be done to the Republicans' 1960 presidential hopes and particularly to Vice President Nixon. This latter is said to be so because Nixon is of course a part of the Eisenhower administration and on his summer visit to Russia declared himself in favor of the Khrushchev-Eisenhower exchange. But this argument assumes what cannot be fairly assumed — that since Mr. Eisenhower, with Nixon's support, initiated this new approach he will therefore be blamed for its failure. In good sense we must recognize that this may not happen at all. The people may simply blame Nikita Khrushchev, and credit the President for a "good try." Thus, even with failure, the end result could be to find him, his party, and Nixon in as strong or stronger a position than now. All the evidence of history indicates that the people generally make broad judgments of men and events, and do not pay much attention to the refined details of Timt» Herald, Carroll, la. <% Monday, Sept. 26, 1959 Q policy and program. The over-all image is what they carry in their minds to the polls. They appear to make their decision as to where the critical areas of policy lie — whether in the national economic field, in foreign affairs, or whatever. And then they pick the man or the party', or both, whom they feel they can most trust to handle matters in that field. To accept that popular judgments are made this way is not to be cynical or to argue that the people "cannot or do not think." It means merely that they cannot, in most cases, weigh the fine points of policy or retain in their heads the massive detail involved in running a government. America as a democracy will be on the right track so long as the broad images are accurate, and the resulting broad popular judgments are consequently well- founded. Voters don't have to be political scientists. Thoughts Who does not slander with his tongue, and does no evil to his friend, nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor. —Psalms 15: 3.

Rare Find Printed Pattern 9347 SIZES 36-50 Woman Reporter Ejected From Press Club's Bar By JERRY BENNETT NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) —That woman reporter who got tossed out of the men's bar at the National Press Club before the Khrushchev luncheon was Mary Van Renesse- lear Thayer, veteran free-lance writer. Mrs. Thayer herself wrote about the incident in her story of the event, but neglected to mention her own name. What • she wrote was: "An innocent woman reporter, hearing gay noises, penetrates the Members' Bar, unaware of its sanctity. She is immediately ejected." The way the eyewitnesses tell it, Mrs. Thayer knew darn well where she was going. Tom Horner of the Washington Star, Press Club president last year, spotted her first. Always the southern gentleman, Mr. Horner asked her politely to leave. President W. H. Lawrence of the New York Times, the more direct type, finished the job. In his own words, he "threw her out," with (he admonition to "try to be a lady, if she could." If Russia's Mr. Big and Mrs. Khrushchev had looked under those yards and yards of red plush carpet that were rolled out for them on arrival at Andrews Field, Md., they would have found that a lot of cigarette butts had been swept under it. The Air Force did a wonderful job of having that carpet clean. A tech sergeant was assigned to sweep it carefully just before the Russian plane landed. The sergeant, with a new broom, got off every speck of lint. But when he came to cigarette butts along the edge of the carpet, he carefully tucked them out of sight—under the rug. Despite the warm greetings exchanged by Chairman Khrushchev and Soviet Ambassador Mikhail Menshikov upon the Kremlin chiefs arrival, there's speculation about whether their enthusiasm for each other was only for show. The doubts stein from an incident which occurred on flic second day of Mr. K's visit. Early that morning, Menshikov and two aides were waiting outside the Russian embassy to join Khrushchev on his trip to the Agriculture Department's Research Center at Beltsville, Md. When Mr. K. didn't arrive to pick him up at the appointed time, Menshikov began to pace back and forth along the sidewalk.

His face got red, and he started pacing faster. Occasionally he would interrupt his nervous exercising and chew out one of the aides. After about 15 minutes of these goings-on, Menshikov heaved a sigh of exasperation and stormed back inside the embassy. Khrushchev had gone to Beltsville without him, leaving directly from Blair House, five blocks away, half an hour early. Most unusual dish served at the big wingding that Khrushchev tossed for Ike at the Russian Embassy was nelma. It's a fish that's caught in the streams of Siberia. A waiter shaved slivers from a 30-inch-long nelma, dipped them in garlic sauce and served them raw to guests. Russians explain that the dish is always served at their parties as a tribute to Lenin. Reason is that nelma was what the big shot Cpm- mie lived on while hiding out from the Czar in pre-revolution days. U. S. Undersecretary of State C.

At the luncheon, he and Foreign Minister Gromyko were served— by request — a tall glass of orange juice and a double pony of brandy. They drank the orange juice instead of water with their meals but passed by the brandy. Interpreter Oleg Troyanovski carefully hid the brandy behind his water glass so it wouldn't show over TV. There was one minor but significant omission in Oleg Troyanov- ski's translation of Khrushchev's Press Club answer on why he was going to China after his American visit. HP explained that Oct. 1 was the 10th anniversary of the Chinese Communist revolution. It was like the October revolution of 1917 in Russia. Actually, the Russian revolution was in October by the old-style Russian calendar, though the date is Nov. 7, under the western calendar. What Troyanovski did not translate was a statement by Khrushchev to the effect of: "Our October date is so very dear to us that sometimes we believe events in history should be dated from that day for the future." It could he a significant hint that the Russians want to change the calendar to make H)17 the Year One of the Communist era, ending the Christian era. Few people noticed' it in the rush and crush, but the tickets for the Press Club luncheon for Khrushchev had his name spelled wrong. The first "h" was left out.

This Is the second of six articles that will appear during her absence, reprinted by f ermlHslon of Random Houxe, nc., from "Tho Happy Child,'* by Irene M. Josselyn, M.D., (o) Copyright, 1055, by Irene Mllllkcn Josselyn.) Wise discipline gives a child a choice when a choice is acceptable. But if the choice has more implications than the child can comprehend, or if parents will accept only one answer, the child should not be given a choice. Parents often mal<e tyrannical noises because they have such a poor concept of their own strength. They assert themselves as if certain that they will not only be opposed but probably defeated. They gird to fight windmills. Hiding behind the windmills is the surprised child. The battle is then on, anger-arousing for the parents and often frightening to the child. Both want to win. The parents fear they won't. The child may be terrified because he doesn't know what he'll do with his victory. Many times when a child forces the parent into battle he does so with the hope that finally the par- rents will win because it is their victory, not his, that gives him security. Parents forget they arc in control. Unsure of themselves when confronted by the obstacles creat ed by the child, they fear him as the "immovable object." Unless parents give away their secret, the child evaluates the situation quite differently. To him parents arc the "irresistible force" to which he will finally have to bow^ Though the parents may be weak, to the child they are very- big and very strong. Confident parents will achieve their goal. They are not wishy-washy in their, discipline. They are reasonable in a request, certain that it will be carried out and tolerant of an understandable delay. Some parents are ineffectual in discipline because the child's particular behavior is in an unconscious way vicariously gratifying to them. When parents gleefully recount some mischief of their child, they are obviously enjoying it. Such a sense of humor is indirectly experiencing a less stodgy life than their own can lighten an overly solemn hand of discipline. But if the parent unconsciously gains gratification out of serious violations by the child, out of every successful evasion of parental or other authority, unfortunate consequences can result. Studies have indicated that many delinquent children are acting out the unconscious wishes of their parents. Next: Even the make mistakes. wisest parents A Happy Marriage More Than a 50-50 Proposition "Why it it," asks a woman reader, "that in your columns you al : most always give husbands better than an even break? You certainly don't make marriage sound like a fifty-fifty proposition — which it certainly should be, even if it isn't." In writing of marriage, T don't worry too much about what ought to be. I don't even worry about trying to please my women readers by constantly hitting at the men and letting women off with a pat on the back. Nor do I pretend that marriage is a fifty-fifty proposition and urge women to demand everything they feel is their due. Marriage isn't a fifty-fifty proposition — and never has been. To Happy marriages are created by women who don't keep books on what they give and what they receive, women who want a happy home more than they want anything else in the world, and who gently and quietly go about the business of making their marriages succeed. So when I write of marriage, I am not in the least concerned about what's fair and what's not fair. I am concerned with "what is" rather than with "what ought to be." The fact is that marriage has always been and still is more important to women than to men. Women may hate to admit this. But unless they do and generously try to give more than they demand — have a happy marriage a woman \ they are making a big mistake . has to work harder at solving problems, keeping home life pleasant, making a home run smoothly and keeping a husband happy. Sure, a woman can. if she wishes, stand up and fight for her rights, snap back when she is snapped at and show no more consideration than she receives. But that kind of attitude rarely makes for a happy marriage.

JORDAN SAYS * By EDWIN P JORDAN, M.D., Written for NEA Servle* Some Folk Lore Remedies Do Have Scientfic Merit Folklore about the treatment of disease dies hard. Occasionally — but only occasionally — it is found to have scientific merit. In the latter group was the belief in certain South American regions that chewing the bark from a certain native tree was good for chills anil fevors. This bark contained quinine and the fever was usually malaria. Hence this "superstition" later became the basis for the scientific treatment of malaria all over tho world. Another superstition which comes close to reality was the widespread belief that was held in the Scottish Highlands that insanily can be caused by a person's heart getting out ol place due to a sudden shock. It was also fell that another shock would bring the heart back to its former position, and thus restore the natural balance. Consequently sudden shock was one of the old remedies for insanity. It is interesting to recall this strange belief in the light of modern developments of a different kind involving shock treatment for certain varieties of mental disease. An interesting letter on this subject was recently received from a reader who mentions several old- fashioned remedies, most of which do not stand up very well as modern types of treatment. She says, "Recently 1 had a bladder infection, and of course went to the doctor who &ave me some pills to com- bat it A friend remarked that if I has only made myself some parsley lea and some flaxseed tea I should have saved myself a doctor bill.

Around the Rotunda With Harrison IVabar, lowa Daily Prass Assn. Writer DES MOINES - Herschel C. Loveless has received an incredible amount of national publicity and his supporters say this will add impetus in their drive to pluck off the Democratic vice - presidential nomination for the Iowa governor. Latest salvo is the treatment accorded to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev during his two - day stay in Iowa. The Governor made it quite clear prior to Mr. Khrushchev's arrival that he was not overly pleased that the Russian boss was even invited to the United States. However, once the Russian leader set foot on Iowa soil the Governor did everything possible to see that he had a cordial stay. Whether it was "good" or "bad" publicity to be seen with the Soviet Premier remains to be seen. Nevertheless, Loveless received national and even world coverage, just be being on hand to welcome Mr. K. Last time that Loveless received a great amount of national coverage was a year ago at Cedar Rapids when President Eisenhower appeared at a farm show. Strategists for the Governor say he is bound to come in for much more national publicity as a result of being on the Governor's executive committee which is expected to delve into the steel strike situation. Also, all sorts of avenues for more nation-wide publicity beckon as a result of Loveless being named chairman of the farm committee of the advisory council of the national Democratic party.

Remember Way Back When son for the delay in releasing the special audit on the motor vehicle fuel, tax divison under state treasurer M. L. Abrahamson. The private auditors completed their work at the statehousc eight weeks ago. For the past month there have been reports that the audit is ready to be released. Some statehousc observers believe the audit is being deliberately withheld until candidates start making their political plans known. The legislature allocated $50,000 for the study and all but a few thousand dollars have been spent. The state auditor's office is also making an audit of the gas tax refund division as part-of their regular audit of the state treasurer's office. It has been learned that the state auditors are better than halfway through this current audit. Bill Nicholas At the highway commis s i o n meeting last week one of the members nettled commissioner Bill Nicholas about any political plans he might have. Usually the commission is packed with newspaper reporters but this meeting was the exception because all the newsmen were covering Nikita Khruschev's visit. Nicholas, former lieutenant governor who was unsuccessful in his bid to get the Republican gubernatorial nomination last lime, said he was not running for any political office. When asked if he would state that if reporters were present, Nicholas was silent. There has been some speculation that Nicholas might rgrslgn from the commission and run for either the U.S. Senate or governor. Nineteen Nine- Mrs. Nannie Ralph of Carroll visited at L. J.

Tax on Water A case is now pending in Polk County district court in Des Moines that might have far-reaching implications. One of the issue? involved is whether the stale, tax commission can force a contractor to pay sales tax on water taken from a creek for construction work.

Price to Retire William O. Price, hearing engineer for the Iowa highway commission will retire from the commission this month after 40 years of service. In 1919 he was appointed district engineer for the Chariton district. At this time none of the roads in his 12 county district were surfaced, but during his stay some 450 miles of paving were laid and many more miles were surfaced with gravel. While district engineer at Chariton, Price was transferred to the Ames office and was appointed by the governor as director of tho Iowa Civil Conservation Corps working in the state parks. In 1l»3li he was asked by the highway commission to organize and head up a new department, known as the safety and traffic department and was instrumental in getting legislation passed for the control of size, weight and load of vehicles on roads. Two years ago Price was transferred to the chiel engineer's office where he was placed in charge of public hearings and other special assignments and Carl F. Schach was named to head up the safely and traffic department. 1960 THUNDERBIRD ...
