EDITORIAL- Much To Be Said For Peace Talk Secrecy Talking postpones war, and may even rule it out. That we know. But what we also have to realize is that much depends upon the quality of the talk. And that in turn may well depend upon the conditions under which it takes place. In Moscow, Soviet Premier Khrushchev was full of praise for the exchange he had with President Eisenhower. He regards it as a good sign. Yet he says it will take many more such meetings before 4 solid accomplishment toward peace can be expected. These additional meetings may or may not take place as he suggests. There is no particular reason why they should not. Evidently this is the only real avenue now open to both sides in the attempt to settle differences. But if we assume further Eisenhower-Khrushchev talks will occur, a question of great importance is automatically raised about the surrounding conditions. Most of the talking at Camp David was conducted with the utmost privacy. It was just the President and Khrushchev, > with the necessary interpreters. In that circumstance, talk could be frank and direct. Each man could explore the other's mind a little. Hints, broad or otherwise, could be dropped regarding possible important concessions. Thus the vital groundwork could be laid Times Herald, Carroll, la. Monday, October 5, 1959 for agreement (though no one says it was in this case). None of these advantages so elemental to real progress is assured when negotiations are conducted in the full glare of public attention. Under the lights, positions taken must be maintained. Subtle explorations are difficult if not Impossible. Words beat about the bush. Admittedly there is also much to be said on the other side. In this age we have altogether too much secrecy in government. Unquestionably the urge to get government's activities and policies out into the open is a sound one. The public is entitled to know what its political servants are doing. Nevertheless, where this necessity collides with the proper requirements for high-level negotiation, there has to be a yielding. And it would seem doubtful wisdom to insist upon openly conducted negotiations when to do so may well be to foredoom them to failure. Peace is the high goal. The world's billions are not likely to qyarrel with that achievement simply because it may have been arrived at, in the original instance, through conversations held behind a door marked "private." U.S. Begins o New Hunt for Disarmament Formula BY PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) — A complete review of U.S. disarmament policies is now being made for Secretary of State Christian A. Herter and Secretary of Defense Neil McElroy. It will encompass all previous studies made by Gov. Harold E. Slassen, U.N. Delegate James J. Wadsworth and others who have been principal U.S. negotiators on disarmament, plus any ideas that Nikita Khrushchev has to offer. It will see if new and more acceptable plans can be found. A special study group of 16 experts under Charles A. Coolidge, Boston lawyer and experienced government trouble shooter, is now at work on the problem full time. The Coolidge report will be completed this year. It will not be made public, but will be submitted direct to President Eisenhower and the National Security Council. Any new plans for international arms control as recommended by the Coolidge report will be reflected in new proposals which the United States makes to the so-called Five- Five Disarmament Subcommittee, Replacing the Big Four Committee, it will convene in Geneva in 1960 under the U.N. This Five-Five Committee takes its name from its composition of five free world and five Communist countries. They are the United States, Britain, Canada, France and Italy; Russia, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Poland and Romania. Lawyer Coolidge will not conduct any of the negotiations before this Five-Five conference. His role is that, of a master planner, trying to mobilize the best brains available to the government to solve one of the most difficult problems of modern times. Coolidge brought Guido Parera, a Boston legal associate, to Washington as his principal deputy. He has three experts from Department of Defense under Admiral Arthur C. Davis and three from State Department under Joseph N. Greene Jr., former top assistant to the late Secretary of State John Foster Dulles. There are also representatives from Atomic Energy Commission, Central Intelligence Agency and Weapons System Evaluation Group. This WSEG organization is a little-known body of scientific advisors to the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It was organized by Vannevar Bush during World War II when there was some thought the Joint Chiefs needed a scientist member. The WSEG group is recruited by another little-known brains organization, the Institute for Defense Analyses, known as IDA. It was organized by five top scientific schools — Cal. Tech, Case, Mass. Tech, Stanford and Tulane. Coolidge is also drawing on two other brains organizations for special studies and research. They are the Rand Corp., which has contracts from the Air Force for scientific work, and Operations Research Organization —ORO—organized by Johns Hopkins University. The principal advantage of this type of organization is that it permits the best brains in the universities to work for the government outside of Civil Service regulations. But the unique feature of the Coolidge office is that it is conducting an interagency government study. State, Defense, AEC and CIA experts on the Coolidge staff are authorized to draw on their own, organizations without limit .for special research projects. In this respect, the Coolidge disarmament , policy group will differ from the work of the two special studies on defense policy headed by Rowland Gaither and William C. Foster Jr., outside the government. This is the fifth time that Cool- <RulL An Enduring Happiness To Follow a Honeymoon Memo to the autumn brides: The honeymoon is over when— He asks, "What's for dinner?" BEFORE the home-coming kiss.

Be with the n«w«st — send 25 OflfllS QCMV4 JJui Being Too Generous May Often Cause Resentment By MRS. MURIEL LAWRENCE When Kay was five she demanded an expensive doll carriage she had seen in a toy store. Her parents said, "No. You'll take no better care of it than you do of your skates." But Kay screamed so persistently for the carriage that they resentfully bought it for her. And just as they had predicted, she soon left it out in the rain to rust, and disintegrate. The begrudged giving went on. When Kay was 12, she demanded ballet lessons. "No," said her parents, "you'll lose interest in them as soon as you discover you have to practice." But again, to get rid of her persistence, they bought her the lessons. And again as they'd foretold, she took two lessons and failed to turn up for the third one. Two years ago she demanded money to study languages in Europe. "No," said her parents, "you won't study in Italy any better than you've studied here." The old story was repeated. Once more Kay made scenes until she was sent abroad to get her degree. This summer she returned. She came home, not with the degree but with a nervous breakdown. This time what she asked for was psychiatric help. "No," said her parents, "you can't have it. You'll see a psychiatrist once or twice— and then lose interest in seeing him as you've lost interest in everything else." Two days ago Kay ran away from home and committed herself to a mental hospital. What she ran away from, in my inexpert opinion, was resentful giving that has gradually destroyed her ability to use the giving. This opinion contains no criticism of her parents. It takes rare courage for an American parent to confess the point at which he begins to resent his children's irresponsible demands. As a people, we take such pride in our "generosity" as parents that we can no longer even feel the reseritment that oppresses us at youngsters' demands for the bigger and better things we can't afford. But though we don't feel it, it expresses itself in spite of us. As we hand Bill our check for the convertible we begrudge giving him, we say, "You drive so carelessly you'll probably wreck it in a week." It's our way of destroying Bill's ability to use what we 'don't want to give him. We save our pride in our "generosity" at the cost of his self-confidence and self-respect. * THE DOCTdR SAYS * If You Don't Now Have a Family Doctor, Get One HAROLD THOMAS HYMAN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Picking a family doctor is probably the most important choice in your life except when you pick your husband or your wife. You, the patient, choose the doctor you want. You stay with him only as long as you wish. The physicians' code of ethics forbids him to advertise or to seek your business. And it is only rarely that the doctor ends his relationship with the patient. You the reader and I the doctor are about to enter into a relationship. After many years of active practice and the teaching of doctors, I am writing about your health problems in your newspaper. Let me say at the outset that Q — How do owls vary in size? A — The smallest of owls is the tiny elf owl hardly six inches long; the largest is the great gray owl 30 inches in length, and has a wingspread of between 54 and 60 inches. Q — For what is Cocos Island off the coast of Costa Rica famous? A — As the repository of pirate treasure said to be buried off the Island. None of this buried gold has been found. Q — Is the wearing of wigs a modern or ancient custom? A — The custom is very old, Egyptian mummies have been found with them. We also know that the ancient Greeks and Romans wore them. Q — What college library houses the most extensive collection of Each's works? A — Baldwin - Wallace College, Berea, 0. SO THEY SAY After taking "My Fair Lady" royalty-free they (the Russians) even wrote and asked us for the score. It's like saying, "I stole your money — now I want you to send me the wallet." — Playwright Alan Jay Lerner. Doesn't anyone look for romance who has been separated from their husband? — Opera star Maria Callas, romantically linked with Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. I say it's a jolly compliment to be called a chip off the old block ... I am very proud of the Rib- bentrop name, and I will never change it. People everywhere — even in London — respect the name. — Barthold von Ribben- trop, son of Nazi foreign minister who was hanged in 1946, being lionized in Britain. L M. Quinlins Entertain at Breda (Times Herald News Service) BREDA — Mr. and Mrs. L. M. Quinlin entertained at a potluck turkey dinner at their home Sunday, honoring the wedding annive*r- sary of Mr. and Mrs. N. J. Smid ol Omaha, and the birthdays of Mrs. L. M. Quinlin, Tom Quinlin and Alan Tiefenthaler. Present with the above named were: Kathy, Cheryl, and Johnny Smid, Omaha; Jack Quinlin and Jean Patton, Ames; Mr. and Mrs. John Smid, Mr. and Mrs. Art Tiefenthaler, Jean and Bonny, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Tiefenthaler, Linda and Betty, and Dick Quinlin. Mr. and Mrs. John Geier and son Denis, accompanied by Sandra Solberg of Minneapolis, Minn., attended the wedding and reception of Mr. Geier's niece Sandra Engel and Eddie O'Connell which took place at St. Dominic's Catholic- Church at Fredrick, Wis., Saturday I and my doctor colleagues who write for the public cannot treat you with words. We may, if we get through, help you to appreciate the miraculous powers of your body, to understand your ailments, to recognize those disturbances which require attention from a doctor and to live with yourself on a little happier terms. As we go on, I shall hope to help you to be a good and understanding patient of the doctor of your choice. Please do not try to become an amateur doctor. Few things irritate me more than dinner-party and locker-room medicine. The world is full of well-intentioned people, eager to tell you exactly what to do about your aching back, head or muscles. You wouldn't let an amateur prescribe for your automobile. Don't let an amateur tell you what to do for your bodily mechanism. I have too much reverence for the human body to assent to its becoming a proving ground for un qualified persons. So, if you do not have a family physician, I urge you now to choose one. In columns which are to follow I will try to tell you some of the things to look for when you search for the right man to guard your health and the health of your loved ones. I hope, too, to ease the burden of my colleagues in practice, for I have spent uncounted hours explaining why I did not think it a good idea to try out something new merely because it was breathlessly described in a popular publication. I have never favored and never will favor panic measures to satisfy restless onlookers. They often increase the suffering of the afflicted. I mean to stress prevention. Mosl complaints the doctor sees result from abuses which can be controlled by simple, un-miraculous methods. He sees: The man who's "working himseU to the grave"; The woman who's "worrying her self to death"; The fatty who's "digging his grave with his teeth"; The alcoholic who's "pickling his liver"; ' The chain-smoker who's inviting damage to his lungs, heart am blood vessels. Your doctor looks for such errors in your way of life. Far more ef fec.tive than expensive laboratory tests is the story you can tell him of your daily activities. From your recital he seeks a clue to what ails you. Many times he will ask you to change your living pattern. Tha will require will power and self control. When you succeed, your doctor will not claim credit for himself The miracle worker will be you ; the patient.

Writer DES MOINES — The Democratic state central committee of Iowa has adopted a tentative budget of $150,000 for the 1960 presidential election year. Of this amount $100,000 has been set aside for campaign expenditures; the remaining $50,000 will go for organization expense. Action on the 1960 budget was taken Wednesday at a committee meeting in Des Moines. When Donald (Duke) Norberg took over as state chairman for the Democrats, the state committee adopted a budget of $33,000 for the last six months of 1958. This year the Democratic central committee has been operating on a budget of $60,000. The committee also decided that candidates for Democratic state office nominations would be invited to meet with the committee and discuss their "political philosophies, their ideals for implementing the party's objectives in the fields of legislation and administration, and their suggestions for coordinating campaign efforts." In all probability a subcommittee of four members from the state central committee will be appointed to confer with the candidates. Nursing Homes State Fire Marshal Ed Herron promises "no wholesale action" against nursing and custodial home operators who are trying but have not yet been able to meet state fire safety require ments. For example, one of the regulations which became effective Sept. 20 was that homes ol non-fire resistive construction with 20 or more patients must have i sprinkler system. Herron n o t e c that many homes are installing sprinkler systems; work is under contract, but is just not finished. Herron, however, was quick to point out that "flagrant disregard" of these fire safety regula- ions is another story and such cases would be dealt with prompt- y. He indicated several homes may be taken to court soon because of disregard for these regu- ations. Michigan Sales Tax The State of Michigan may be headed for another financial crisis. Michigan lawmakers increased their use tax rate from 3 to 4 ?er cent effective last Sept. 1. Michigan has a constitutional lim- .tation which prevents increasing the sales tax beyond the 3 per cent rate. But the legislators :ound a means to circumvent this limitation by rescinding the use tax exemption on Michigan retail sales. Result — a Michigan retailer was to collect 3 per cent sales lax and 1 per cent use tax on retail sales. Within 12 hours after the increase went into effect, a court case had been filed challenging the constitutionality of this law. The attorney general is reported to have advised taxpayers to save their sales slips pending the outcome of this litigation. Expense Account* State employees who live in Des Moines are not being reimbursed for expenses in connection with three state-wide conferences held in the capital city recently. H. E Croft of the state comptroller's of fice said he is following a ruling by the attorney general's office which holds that employees are not entitled to expenses while a the place of residence. The three conferences are the conservatior clinic, correctional conference and a meeting on public safety. The problem of expenses incur red by state employees at special meetings came into the limelight ast July when the state highway commission had a dinner for its mployees at Ames. The commission paid $785 for a steak dinner or 231 employees. State Comptrol- er Sarsfield questioned the commission about this expenditure because half of the employees who attended the dinner live in Ames. Tax Collections The state tax commission has aken in over $220,000 in delinquent income taxes this past year, or approximately $50,000 less than the previous year. This income was derived from auditing, volun- ;ary disclosures, or no remittance for the years 1952-58. Penal Director The state board of control, which has jurisdiction over the state's penal institutions, has high lopes of hiring a penal director sefore the first of the year. Board member John R. Hansen said the National Probation and Parole Association is presently screening candidates for the post. Although the position was created several years ago, the state has never had a penal director.

Civil Defense Workshops to Be Discussed By HARBISON WEBER (Iowa Daily Press Writer) DES MOINES — A 48-member state - wide committee will meet here Thursday to discuss the establishment of 25 civil defense workshops throughout the state. An effort to produce a plan of emergency medical care in Iowa has been 1 underway for several years. Initially the various professional groups attempted to provide independent programs. Three years ago the various groups — doctors, dentists, nurses, veterinar i a n s, pharmacists and hospital administrators — decided to meet as an inter-professional association. During the past year the Iowa Inter- professional Association has had a state committee trying to integrate an emergency medical service plan. The organization is beyond the paper state; various committees have accomplished much. Three Committees The organization as it now functions is comprised of the following: v 1. State Committee—This is the committee of the Iowa Interprofes- sional Association which has acted in the capacity of a planning and steering group. 2. Committee of 48 — In each of the eight civil defense areas in Iowa there is a committee of six persons, one each from the medical, dental, nursing, veterinarian, pharmacy, and hospital administrator profession. These eight groups of six persons meet to advise and plan with the state committee and advise and cooridnate the county committee. 3. County committees of 0 — A committee of six persons, one from each of the health professions, has been appointed at the county level to serve as the operating committee. Purpose of this organization is to produce emergency medical service to cope with all forms of natural disaster such as floods, tornadoes, aircraft crashes, and to care for the civilian population hi case of enemy attack. Portable Hospitals Iowa civil defense has a number of portable 200 bed hospitals. One of these portable hospitals will be on display at each of the 25 meetings to be scheduled in various parts of the state. At each of these meetings the professional io the community will receive a briefing so they know what facilities are available in case of an emergency. Secondly, the people in allied fields, such as warehousemen who might be called upon to set up the portable hospital, will learn what is expected of them. After that the general public will be invited to view the portable hospital. Naturally the Iowa Civil Defense Administration has joined hands with the Iowa interprofessional Association in a coordinated effort to create an awareness of the need to be prepared in the event of disaster. Unique Program State Director of Civil Defense C. E. "Ben" Fowler says "there is nothing like the Iowa program in the whole country". Those keenly interested in this project say preparation of a work- ble plan for emergency medical services requires more than sup- ples, equipment and personnel. A stockpile of "thought" and "functioning brains" is also required. Experiences in the past disasters have been documented of the serious mistakes that have been made, in some instances all basic concepts of good medical care have been neglected in the panic that prevailed. Thought must be given to how the plans will operate at different times of the day, when different staffs are available; who will serve as litterbearers; and how will staff personnel be known from curiosity seekers. Also, provision must be made within the individual hospital for alternate supplies of electricity, oxygen, water, steam; there must be advanced planning in detail with regard to food supplies. Thought must be given to the utilization of trained personnel. The skills of the veterinarian with regard to humans is limited; yet he has the skills that are very useful in the general plan in such areas as food supplies, environ- tal sanitation, and rodent control. Special training is necessary to utilize them on the medical team. Thought must be given to assignment of personnel to positions of authority. It has been documented that emergency care has actually broken down while sever a 1 groups debated whose disaster it was and who was to be directing the activities. Disaster Plans Needed Every community should have an established practical disaster plan which brings into play all agencies of that community including the police, fire department, civil defense authorities, communications transportation, as well i as Uu medical facilities. , I Orchids in Mexico to Wear or Eat MEXICO CITY (AP) — Ever eat an orchid? You're wrong. You have. Vanilla comes from orchids. In fact, the "vanilla planifolea" is known as the ice cream orchid for that reason. It grows in Mexico, particularly in the tropical state of Veracruz, where it has long been a source of revenue for the Totohac Indians and others. Veracruz is known as the vanilla capital of the world. The warm and humid state on the Gulf of Mexico has the climate necessary to grow the vanilla planifolea, said to be the only known edible orchid in the Western Hemisphere. The spice actually comes from beans which grow on the orchid plants. It was first cultivated on a large scale in Mexico by French and Italian colonists invited in the 1860s. The Indians had used the vanilla beans as amulets, regarding them a medical charm. Pulverized, they were mixed with cinnamon and hot chocolate for a delicious drink. But the colonists taught them the secrets of artificial polination, which boosted production. Vanilla, like the date, is polinated by hand. As do most orchids, vanilla wraps itself vinelike around tree trunks. The vines are long, have tendril- like roots. In early spring, sprays of white blooms appear. When they open, polination begins. The Totonacs go into the jungles before daybreak because polination can take place only during the hours from dawn to about 11 a.m. Later, the tropical sun wilts and kills the blooms. There are up to 50 blossoms on a spray, and these open durriig a four to six week period. In April or May the vanilla beans begin developing long, slender 'green pods, looking something like a long stringbean or a tiny banana. They are ripe and ready for harvest in the fall. Once picking begins, the Toto- nacs are really busy around the clock. They harvest the beans, bring them to town and sell them to curers. For the next five to seven months the beans are under a constant pro< cess of drying both in the sun and in steam ovens and bins of sweat baths.
