EDITORIAL- Free Men Want None of Peiping Birthday Cake Now that, the Chinese Communist regime in Peiping has attained its 10th birthday, the free world, taking a hard look, can arrive at certain conclusions. For one thing, we know now that communism in China is not a flyby-night thing that will blow away at the first sign of internal rebellion. The Reds are there to stay for a long time. They have the means to suppress revolt. No evidence exists, furthermore, that to d a y there are any real seeds of rebellion. The deep peasant discontent over the establishment of the communal system in agriculture — a foisting of barracks living on a people wedded through centuries to the family structure — can hardly be translated into action against the government, though it has forced modification of the communes. Secondly, the record in this 10- year period of Red rule does not support those who believe that, with cautious nurturing, we may wean Peiping away from its ties with Moscow. Events suggest that Peiping is more hostile, in the active sense, than is Moscow toward the West. While the Russians have eased countless restrictions, while Nikita Khrushchev plays at wooing the West into agreements (on his own terms, admittedly), Mao Tse'Tung and his stiff - backed colleagues freeze us out totally and preach hatred of America and its friends. Tim*» Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, Oct. 7, 1959 To what extent this represents an artificial theme designed to goad teeming China into extraordinary effort, no one can say with confidence. But the end product—hatred —is real enough, and it makes of China a self-determined outcast in world society. In Red China's decade, Russia has of course been well boxed in by NATO and the nuclear threat. Still it is a fact that while the Soviet Union was not addingta square mile of new soil to its orbit, Peiping did these things: Fought the Korean war and retained practical control of North Korea when it ended. Played a material role and exercised similar control in Communist North Viet Nam. Took over Tibet and squelched a revolt in brutal style. Stirred further Red aggressions in Laos and along the Indian line. Free men have no reason to eat of the birthday cake in Peiping. The harsh totalitarians who celebrate 10 dark years are deeply entrenched. They are not our friends, trenched. They are not our friends. to convert them.

If Teen-agers Could Vote, Nixon Would Be Their Pick By JERRY BENNETT NBA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) — There was a whole bevy of 50 girl- type teen-agers on the stairs in the National Press Club lobby when distinguished pundit Walter Lippmann spoke there on his 70th birthday. Club members who saw the gals were a bit surprised to think that the septuagenarian columist had as much sex appeal as a crooner or disk jockey, but there the fans Were, ready to scream. They weren't waiting for Lippmann at all, however. They were waiting for Vice President Dick Nixon, who came to the luncheon along with several members of the cabinet to honor the world-famous writer. When Nixon came in, the gals gave him a hand. Flattered, he waved and stopped to chat with them. They turned out to be students in a business college in the Press Club building. "I suppose you're all going to bo good stenographers when you graduate," observed Nixon in his best campaign manner. A cute blonde in the front row corrected him quickly. "Secretaries!" she said. Nixon blushed and retreated. A hotel clerk here gave two members of Kremlin boss Khrushchev's entourage the wrong room key by mistake. When the Rus- sians opened the door, they were shocked to find a woman. Hurrying back to the main desk, they demanded, "There's a woman in our room. Get her out." When the startled clerk realized he had goofed, he immediately apologized. The Russians, completely red-faced, said they wanted to apologize to the lady. A State Department representative was summoned to accompany them. He knocked on the woman's door and announced: "There are two officials of the Soviet Union here who would b'ke to apologize for their intrusion." The woman yelled back, "Tell them that I accept their apology. Now all three of you go away and let me get some sleep." When Chief Justice Earl Warren stood up to take a bow at a recent Shoreham Hotel wingding, he found himself the target of another Supreme Court nifty. The master of ceremonies said charges that the justices argue too much among themselves reminded him of a yarn about three monks. They belonged to an order which required them to observe five-year periods of silence. At the end of that time, a monk who had anything to say could speak one sentence. Only one monk, however, could talk during each five - year- period. One day one of the monks an- millet Teen-Agers' Mothers Are Phone Answering Devices M;my times I've seen lists of the various jobs performed by the average housewife and mother. The lists always include such items as chauffer, laundress, cook, babysitter, cleaning woman, and so on. But so far I've never found "social secretary" on any such list. It ought to be there if the housewife and mother has even one teen-ager in the family. If she has more than one, it ought to be underlined. How does mom perform as social secretary? Why, she runs an answering service for her teen-age son or daughter — taking dozens of telephone calls every day, keeping messages straight, remembering which boys are to be told "Jane is at Anne's. You can call her there if you like," and which Doily Times Herald Daily Except Sundays and Holidays By The Herald Publishing Company 515 N. Main Street Carroll, iowa JAMES W.

Jane isn't here right now. No, I'm not sure just when she'll be back." She not only has to be able to say where her own son or daughter can be reached by telephone when they aren't at home — she has to know who all their companions arc. For teen-agers never give up when they want to reach a friend by telephone. So when the telephone isn't ringing for her own teen-ager, it is very likely ringing for a friend. Half the time, the caller is trying to track down another teen-ager who might just happen to be with Jane. So Jane's mother has to be able to say just who went in the car with Jane. And then there are the messages: "Judy wants you to call and tell her what you are wearing to the party tonight." "Bill says you are double-dating with Joe and Barbara, and so he'll be by at seven-thirty instead of seven-fifteen." And on-and-on-and-on. But what makes the job such a headache is this: no matter if mom gets a dozen messages straight and keeps half a dozen boys either encouraged or discouraged, according to daughter's instructions, the one message she forgets is sure to be the most important. "Oh, Mother, how could you have forgotten to tell me Jane said they had all decided to wear flats instead of heels?" wails her daughter. And mom realizes she has flubbed her job as social secretary, over the heels versus flats issue. (All Klems Keserved, NBA Service, Inc.)

Another five years passed, and then the third monk declared "I wish you would stop this interminable bickering and get down to work." To kick off their first Washington exposition, office equipment manufacturers bounced an electronic message off a Russian satellite. The message, which was picked up at their exhibition hall, said: "Dear Mr. Khrushchev, Thanks for the use of your punctual Sputnik III. We're using it to invite you to drop by our show and see what makes American business work." Washington partygoers were surprised the other night to learn that Mamie Eisenhower's teen - age niece has become a song writer. She's 15-year-old Mamie Moore, and her first song is a torch ballad called "That's What Memories Are For." When Hollywood vocalist Marie McDonald introduced it at a recent Gaslight Club party, a Democratic National Committee wag cracked: "I wish my daughter had written that. I would have had her dedicate it to the Republicans in I960." Irritated by all the security restrictions on Khrushchev's coast- to-coast tour, a reporter cracked: "The first people on the moon won't be scientists. They'll be cops, State Department security boys and Russian MVD agents with orders to 'Get back behind the ropes!'

Key to Summit Meeting- Little Change in Red Approach to West Berlin By WILLIAM t. RYAN Associated Press News Analyst Can Moscow demonstrate that anything, basically, has changed in its approach to the issue of West Berlin's future? This may be the key question standing in (.he way of a summit meeting. A short time ago the world was told Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev had removed the main obstacles to a summit conference. Only Tuesday Khrushchev seemed to contribute to renewed doubts. The summit question now is a political issue in Britain, a source of annoyance in France and probably a bit of a Washington headache. Conservative Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, in the midst of a British election campaign, has insisted a summit meeting is assured and has indicated credit for this should accrue to him and his leadership. Apparently Washington felt obliged to tug a bit of the nig from under Macmillan by announcing there had been no agreement to convene the meeting. Britain's Laborites jumped on this happily, accusing Macmillan of making election stunts of world issues. And in Paris, France tartly reminded everybody that she, at any rate, had not even been consulted. Possibly Khrushchev derived some satisfaction from all this Western confusion. But Khrushchev, who has given every indication he devoutly wants a summit meeting, likely will have some problems himself in this respect. Although President Eisenhower found that the main obstacles had been removed, he still might be waiting for the results of further tests. Does Khrushchev, for example, really want firm agreement on key issues? Or does he want the conference primarily to capture the world's attention while the Communist movement I marks time and awaits opportun-! ities? j Khrushchev's c o n g r atulations ( Tuesday to the East German Communist regime, marking its 10th anniversary today, might arouse considerable skepticism over how much things have changed. In his name, the Kremlin hailed the German Communist regime for an "indefatigable struggle for liquidation of the obsolete occupation regime in West Berlin" and for promoting "solution of the national task of unification of Germany on a peaceful and democratic basis." This seems to indicate continued Communist pressure on West Berlin, which is a brilliant testimony to Western standards, deep in the heart of a Communist-run state, and a constant thorn in the Communist side. As for Germany's reunification, that has the distinct look of red herring. Khrushchev himself has shown clearly he sees little prospect for reunification on any basis at all. Khrushchev provoked a crisis last November by setting a time limit for ending the four-power occupation of Berlin. Recently, during his American visit, he assured President Eisenhower there would be no time limit, on West Berlin negotiations. This seemed to remove the impression of ultimatum. But — was the ultimatum really tver there? Was Khrushchev really prepared to test the West's mettle by holding to a deadline? In short, was he prepared to risk war over Berlin? It seems unlikely. If that is the case, then it is difficult to see just how the Soviet attitude has changed at all. President Eisenhower may well be waiting, before agreeing to a summit meeting, to hear if, how, and in what respect the Soviets have given any ground. Bible Comment- Tale of Missionaries BY WILLIAM E. GILROY, D. D. The story is not about missionaries to Finland, but about missionaries from Finland to Africa; surely one of the most remarkable and inspiring stories of missionary zeal, and also of ultimate accomplishment in the face of almost certain defeat. In recent years I have resumed a boyhood hobby of stamp collecting, when I discovered how relaxing the hobby could be. I am a very amateur collector, without knowing anything of the intricacies of what has become an enormous business. I have, however, been interested enough to subscribe to some stamp papers, especially to the well-known Mekeel's Weekly Stamp News. It was in this paper for Aug. 7 that I saw the article "Religion in Stamps," by Glenn D. Everett, telling this remarkable story of "Winning Africa for Christ." The occasion was the issuing of a stamp by the Finnish government to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Finnish Missionary Society. Finnish Lutherans had been supporting missions with' German Lutherans, but inspired by news of David Livingstone, and stories of Africa brought back by Finnish sailors, they determined to organize a missionary society of their own in 1859. But it was 10 years before money and volunteers were available to launch the mission to Africa, and it was another 10 years before the SO THEY SAY It is not our intention to bolt (the Democratic party) or to create a third party. We just want to unify the South so that we can be in a trading position, not only in the next presidential election but from now on. —Roy Harris, president of the Segregationist Citizens Council of America. Fashion has de-emphasized the bosom and the spotlight is now on the navel.—Buyer Sally Tutt, on next summer's swimsuits. Long after the last segregated school house in the United States is abolished, we shall still have to reckon with "Jim Crow of the mind." . . . Every Negro should interest himself, not superficially but deeply, in the problems of some minority other than his own. —Semanticist S. I. Hayakawa. first converts, only four, were baptized: In 1869 five ordained young men with several lay workers set out for Ovamboland, an area of Southwest Africa, below the Congo, and in the following year with five wagons, each drawn by teams of 14 oxen, reached the village of On- donga. At first well received by. the natives, trouble began when hostile traders and slavers incited chiefs and witch doctors against the missionaries. It was little wonder that after virtually 20 years, with opposition and destruction, and only four converts to show, there were many who wanted to abandon the mission. But the missionaries stayed. Today, the church in Ovambo- land has over 60 missionaries, 43 native pastors, 818 lay teachers and evangelists and more than 100,000 African members, and the Finnish missions have spread to Tanganyika and other areas of Africa. The story of such triumph over seemingly unsurmountable loss and destruction points to hope for the outcome in Ecuador of the mission in which five airborne missionaries have given their lives, and the widow of one, with relatives and associates, is carrying on with incredible courage and a love and devotion that seems to be winning the Indians — even those who killed her husband. The cynical might say, Abandon it all! Why wish defeat and further violence? But in the light of the Finnish African mission experience one may well wonder what 35 years, or perhaps much less, among the Auca Indians will show.

All she did was sleep and eat and then go back to sleep again." She ends her letter by asking if her freshman daughter's behavior suggests that "college is too much for her" and if it might be wise to "take her out and put her to something else." Dear Worried Mother: I imagine this is your first experience with the girl who goes off to college and lives the ordinary campus and dormitory life. Let me tell you what it's like and you'll agree, too, that it would be a grave injustice to so much as consider taking her out because of her behavior over the weekend. Although you and I know better, college officials assume that members of the entering class are men and women. Therefore, they do not treat freshmen the way six-year- olds are treated in nursery school. Quite rightly, they let them conduct their own lives, within reason. They do not interfere with them unless there is some good reason for picking them up or reprimanding them. What happens then with this sort of permissive care is easily imagined. If your daughter is like the rest of her classmates, she probably gets up just in time to rush to chapel or an early class. Either she skips breakfast entirely or she gulps down a glass of milk or a cup of coffee and eats a roll as she hurries across the campus. Later in the morning, she'll probably go to the snack bar and have a coke or some more coffee and a doughnut. Quite frequently, neither the midday nor the evening meal will prove to her liking. Institutional food is apt to be a bore. She may never admit it but she misses Mom's cooking. So it's back to the snack bar for more coffee or coke or a soda or a sundae some time in the afternoon or later in the evening. Between classes, she chews the rag with other girls or, if she's a co-ed, with a special boy friend or assorted boy friends. After a few hours in the library, attendance at a rally, engaging in some recreational activity or trying out for a team or a part in a play, she returns to her room. With hi-fi playing and roommate yak-yaking, she starts to prepare her next day's assignments. After toying with the dull institutional supper, she may decide she needs some recreation so she goes to a movie with or without a male escort. Follows then another visit to the snack bar and a bull session with the girls on her floor that goes on half through the night. Comes the dawn and your freshman child wakens to face another round of campus and dormitory activities. Comes the weekend and she staggers home to eat and crawl into the sack. Don't worry about her, mother dear. And don't, if you love her, take her out of. college. She's just got an attack of youth. Remember, you had it once and recovered. She will, too.

Winterize Your Driving Habits in Interest of Safety By CLIFFORD SWANSON ^Director of Research * Statistic* Iowa Department of Public Safety) (Distributed by Iowa Dally Press Ass'n.) DES MOINES — Statistics on raffic accidents and fatalities for :he last quarter of the year usual- y show an increasing trend. With ,he advent of fall bringing fewer lours of daylight and very often sudden weather changes, the trend n accidents increased progressively. With the change in season many hings arise to command the attention of the road user. A driver returning home in the evening will find twilight, dusk and darkness arriving much earlier each day of the quarter. Last year, September accounted for 7.4 per cent of the :otal annual nighttime accidents. This increased to 8.7, 10.6 and *3.3 per cent, respectively, during the remaining months of the year. Ran-off-the-roadway, fixed object and collision with another motor vehicle accounted for almost the total increase in accidents during this three-month period. Collision with railroad trains almost tripled in December over the previous year. "No appreciable reductions in other accident types were made to compensate for the increases as enumerated. Certainly weather, and the road conditions resulting, accounts for the greater number of accidents of the types that usually occur at that time of year. Rain, sleet and snow obscure the vision of the driver in addition to the effect the various forms of precipitation have on the road surface. As the temperatures drop their effects in-, crease. The importance of recognizing and accepting the change in the season should not be minimized. Failure to do so must be considered to have an adverse effect. UNUSUAL CRASH SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N. J. (AP) —A 20th Century plane crashed into a 19th Century ship but the accident went undiscovered for years. Skin divers came upon the wreckage while searching the ocean floor about five miles off the coast. Cradled among the corroded wooden timbers of a sunken commercial vessel of the 1890s was the wreckage of a small aircraft of the type used for training at the beginning of World War II. The plane had apparently "crashed almost 20 years ago in exactly the same place where the ocean swallowed the old ship in the late 19th Century. Ike's Hand Forced By Deadlocks In Disputes By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)—Deadlocks in the steel and copper disputes are teamed up with the tie-up of ?orts from Maine to Texas to :orce President Eisenhower's land. The situation as he prepared to get tough, was clear. Many companies are watching .heir supplies of metal dwindle. And in recent days they haven't )een getting deliveries of foreign steel, either. Because of the longshoremen's strike, the one big U. S. custom smelter still operating says it can't take any more orders for copper products. All supplies available to it will be used up in 'illing present orders. The dock strike also sent crude rubber prices back up just when mporters were looking for a decline. Dealers in secondhand steel lave raised their prices as other sources fade away. Railroads report net income in August shrank 26 million dollars, with roads in the East showing a ! ive-million-dollar loss. The story j 'or September could scarcely be any better. These were the current effects of the wave of strikes while the nation awaited the expected in-1 yoking of the Taft-Hartley Act to get the longshoremen or the steel- i workers, or both, back on the job 'or at least 80 days. Whether the 80 days will change the thinking of either management or labor on the issues that divide them is open to debate. If it doesn't, the nation will be in for a repetition of the deadlocks that threaten to undermine the current prosperity. Users of steel and copper expected the strike and laid in big supplies. What they didn't expect was that both sides would be so set on not giving up on the issues they consider fundamental. So the big supplies have now dwindled to quite small ones. Although pinched for supplies, many steel users are reported feeling that steel management is right in trying to halt further price rises and in demanding more say- so in operating its mills. It's one of the bitterest labor battles in years. To date, the public has been hurt only in those areas where steel mills operate and in those industries, like railroads, that look to steel for a major part of their income. But the President warned that from now on the effects would spread rapidly. Both management and labor were prepared for his intervention. Some steel mills began ordering coal again and buying steel scrap in anticipation of returning to production. How long it will take before hard-pressed steel users will get all of it they want is in doubt, with guesses running from two weeks to four, or even more.
