EDITORIAL- Time North Western Started Other Way Pointing out the one remaining passenger and express train between Chicago and Council Bluffs operated at a loss of $1,136,911 last year, the Chicago and North Western Railway Co. announced this week it would ask for Interstate Commerce Commission authority to discontinue the train. That would leave a good many sizeable Iowa cities, including Carroll, without a single passenger train on the North Western line that once offered fine and extensive service. Two principal reasons are cited in support of a move to abandon westbound train No. 5 and eastbound train No. 6 on the Chicago to Council Bluffs mainline. The Railway Express Agency has plans to HSC other means of handling its express shipments along* the route, end the one passenger coach carried on the trains has averaged less than 17 persons per trip. But an investigation by the Interstate Commerce Commiss i o n might reveal that simply granting authorization for the North Western to discontinue the last two passenger trains between such two important midwestern terminal cities wouldn't be the best solution to the railroad's problem. The carrier has enjoyed a franchise for many years and faces an obligation to serve the public needs along an important route. The fact the one remaining passenger and express train has been operating so far this year at a loss of more than $1,800 a day might not be 59 much the lack of patronage by once numerous customers as it is the determination of the railroad to discourage passenger business. If the North Western has been making it as difficult for the Railway Express Agency to do business with them as it has both on-the-line and terminal passengers, then it is understandable both interests have been forced to look elsewhere and to other methods for answers to Choir transportation needs. Other railroads, of late, are reported more than holding their own with admittedly strong competition in the transportation field. In some areas, now that the newness of air travel has somewhat dimmed, rail passenger business is noted Times Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, Oct. 15, 1959 even increasing. But the railroads experiencing this added patronage have not been discontinuing or cur tailing service. They've gone after the passenger business with a determination, and it has paid off. The easy way out for the North Western, of course, would be to forget the passenger business entirely, which has been the manifest goal of the latest management team for some time. But for the Interstate Commerce Commission to permit that would be an inexcusable disservice to the area intended to be served by the North Western. The better solution, in the best interest of all concerned, by no means excluding the railroad, would be an insistence the North Western get back into the field of cultivating this vital passenger traffic which can prove profitable if atttended to propertly, as demonstrated by other lines. If permission to abandon trains No. 5 and No. 6 is denied, perhaps the North Western would reverse its position and set about to turn the $1,800 daily loss into a profit. But it couldn't be expected much passenger business would result from the fashion and with the equipment the trains have been operated in recent months. Carroll and many another city across Iowa on the North Western should not have to face the loss of this last passenger and express train service. It is time the Interstate Commerce Commission not only declines the latest application of the railroad company but reminds the line of its obligation to serve the territory and instead of getting out of the passenger business it should be going the other way.

Inflation Could Shape Up As a Major Hassle in 1960 BY PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) —Many people in high and low places here and elsewhere are bothered by the threat of inflation. No two groups of them seem able to agree as to what inflation is, to say nothing of what to do about it. The result: Inflation is shaping up as a major political issue for 19GO, instead of being handled as an economic problem about which there should be nonpartisan policy and no public confusion. President Eisenhower has talked frequently about inflation in terms of reduced purchasing power of the dollar. The cabinet committee on price stability and economic growth, under Vice President Nixon, is supposed to be educating people about these things. But its emphasis in several reports issued so far is that economic growth and reasonable price stability are the important things —not inflation. Both Democratic National Committee Advisory Council Economist J. Kenneth Galbraith and Senator Paul Douglas (D-I11.), chairman of the Congressional Economic Committee, have jumped on this. In a committee staff study by Indiana economist Charles L. Schul- t/.u, recent inflation is attributed to two principal factors: Expanded research activities accompanied by increased salary and overhead costs; price rises in some industries — like steel and autos — not accounted for by increased demand. To employers, the big threat of inflation is caused by wage increases. Daily Times Herald Except Sundays and Holidays By Tho Herald Publishing Company 515 N. Main Street Carroll, Iowa JAMES W.

Their argument is that wages could be raised without raising prices simply by taking the added payroll costs out of profits. To farmers, inflation is measured more by the parity index than anything else. If the prices of things farmers buy go up while crop prices go down, they are definitely suffering from both inflation and deflation. The parity ratio, which was 100 in 1949, has dropped 20 per cent in 10 years, to a present low of 80. To consumers who measure their well-being by the cost of living, prices have gone up 25 per cent in the same 10 years, from an index number of 100 in 1949, to 125, now. To people in the upper income tax brackets, inflation is caused by high government spending, unbalanced budget and deficit financing. What this shows is simply that inflation is many things to different people. And, until economists and politicians can agree on what inflation is, how can they stop or prevent it? When the Senate Finance Committee under chairman Harry Byrd '€)-Va.) made its futile study of monetary policy in 1958, a lot of experts were asked for a laymen's definition of inflation. Byrd got many answers, no agreement. The presidents of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks ganged up and gave four definitions. They added that none was correct or incorrect and they were not useful under all conditions. The significant thing was that all four began with, "Inflation is a rise in prices . . ." William McChesney Martin Jr., chairman of the Fed's board of governors in Washington, gave two definitions: 1. "Aggregate demand ... in excess of aggregate availabilities of resources at existing prices." . 2. "Inflation is a flow of spending in excess of the flow of goods and services." After this doubletalk, Mr. Martin did lay his words on an understandable line with the statement that: "The effect of inflation is manifest in rising prices, and to the man in the street, 'inflation is a rise in the cost of living." If everybody could agree on that they could, as Mr. Martin expressed it, "focus on the causes and how to prevent it."

Bible Comment- Simon, Called Peter BY WILLIAM E. GILROY, D. D. Until recently, when family illness has kept me closely to home, I had been a frequent visitor to the movies. Many listed and reviewed movies I should like to see. But there is one that, if the description of it in a recent review is at all correct, I shall be very glad to miss. It is the movie "The Big Fisherman," based on Lloyd Douglas' novel of the same title, with the Apostle Simon Peter as its titular character. I see that my late friend, Dr. Douglas, anticipating what the moviemakers would do to his story, described himself as "an irascible old man" who wished they would leave it "just a book." The responsibility, I think, has been in some measure on Dr. Douglas himself. It seemed to me that after the immense success of "The Magnificent Obsession" as a movie, he wrote with one eye on the movie possibilities. As to Dr. Douglas' irascibility I once had very specific proof. In a considerable file of letters that passed between us there is one not there. He told me to read it, and burn it, which I eventually did. In a pastorate that seemed a con- spiculously notable success irritations that vex a minister's f soul had evidently occurred, and in all literature I have never read anything so devastating — except the woes that Jesus pronounced against the hypocrites. Actually, I think, the diatribe was much less an emotional and spiritual outburst than a literary experimentation. I think Douglas was experimenting to see how far in that sort of writing he could really go. He could use words to Elay as well as to elucidate and inspire. He was throughout his life a Christian minister, and it is as a Christian minister his influence lias lived, and will live. But to get back to "The Big Fisherman": the movies have evidently made out of his profoundly dramatic story and great spiritual experience a chiefly sensational movie with the worst sort of accompaniments. The story of Peter, the fisherman, as told in the simple pages of the New Testament is one of the most moving in all the stories of religious experience. The center and soul of the story of Peter is not found in any acts of Peter himself. It is in the words of Jesus: "Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath desired to have you that he may sift you as wheat: but I have, prayed for thee, thai thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy breth ren" (Luke 22: 30, 31). What a prayer! And primarily for faith which is the basis to con quest. I think that in general the the ater, the movies and television fai and give an inadequate, if not distorted, portrayal when they en ter the field of religion in which deep sincerity as well as keen spir itual perception and a true sense of values can be the only satis factory guides. * THE DOCTOR SAYS * Grandma's 'Let 'em Catch It' Theory Had Some Merit BY HAROLEP T. HYMAN, M. D. Written for NEA Service It wasn't too many generations ago when grandmother deliberately exposed all the young ones when the first of them caught chicken pox, regular or German measles or mumps. By modern standards it was a crude way of immunizing children. But the reasons were sound, and the results left little to be desired. She knew the infection would spread, despite precautions. When the kids were sick together, they kept one another company. Convalescents helped those who were still uncomfortable. The household was upset all at once instead of at intervals. Time has proved grandma's wisdom. Each of these virus infections bestows a lifelong immunity. Attacks are much less severe and complications much less likely to occur when the patient is between the ages of 4 or 5 and 9 or 10. Attacks are more severe and complications much more likely to occur, especially in mumps, when the patient is an adolescent or an adult. In recent years, introduction of an effective mumps virus vaccine has somewhat changed the situation. By giving two injections, a week or so apart, contacts may be protected during the three-week period of incubation. When the vaccine is completely effective, the contact shows no sign of the disease and a third dose, injected six to 12 months later, may give lifelong protection. If the vaccine is only partially effective, the contact develops a mild and uncomplicated attack and needs no further artificial protection. Soon there is a very promising prospect that equal success will be achieved by a virus vaccine for regular measles which presently can be reduced to a mild and uncomplicated disease by early use of injections of "measles modifier." With the elimination of mumps and regular measles from grandma's program of naturally acquired active immunity, there remain for consideration only chicken pox and German, or Liberty, measles. Nothing need be said for or against her procedure with regard to chicken pox. Introduced into a household, nothing will prevent each suspectible child from catching the infection. And since the disease is mild, brief and rarely complicated, it is best regarded as a necessary nuisance like the occasional scraped shin. But German or Liberty measles is another matter. Recent observations have provided a strong basis for following grandma's program. To be sure, German measles is a mild, brief and uncomplicated disease so far as the patient is concerned. But if the patient happens to be pregnant and in the first three months of her pregnancy, the chances are one in three that her baby will be born with some congenital defect such as a hair lip, a cleft palate, eye cataracts or heart trouble. If she is beyond the 12th week of her pregnancy, the chances of her baby having a congenital defect are slightly less and the defect is apt to be less troublesome. But if the mother's mother saw to it that her daughter got German measles when she was a youngster, her grandchild would be spared the handicap of coming into this world with a congenital defect. So German measles for your little girl is a blessing disguised as a nuisance. MAKE f RIENDS Mrs. B. insists that her daughter's friends and dates call her by her first name. Instead of putting them at ease, she only makes them uncomfortable. Around the Rotunda With Harrison Weber, Iowa Daily Press Assn. Writer DES MOINES — Iowa's present financial picture is an extremely bright one. Some months ago* state comptrol- er Glenn D. Sarsfield estimated the state's unencumbered balance on June 30 would be $44,021,658. His staff is presently compiling yearend figures and it appears that the unencumbered balance may reach $50 million. Why such a large difference? Two big reasons are the individual income tax and sales tax collections. Both are difficult to predict. For example, ba«k in February ofi 1957 Sarsfield estimated the individual income tax would raise $24,950,000 in the 1958-59 fiscal year. As it turned out, it raised $35,779,000, or nearly 11 million more than originally predicted. Sarsfield also estimated in the spring of 1957 that the revenue for the biennium would total $203,738.000. Actual receipts for the biennu- utn just concluded amounted to $296,000,000 or 33 million more than originally predicted 2 years ago. At ;he time Sarsfield made his pro- diction some legislators were of the opinion that he had gone overboard and suggested a more conservative estimate would be in order. As state government grows, so do the state's financial problems and it becomes exceedingly difficult to make accurate predictions. The state is presently doing over a billion dollars worth of business every 2 years. Overall business which includes highway funds, programs, federal aids, etc., for the fiscal year just ended totaled $546,232,000. E tutorials Maurice B. Crahbe, newspaper publisher from Eagle Grove and f member of the state board of regents, has had some blistering editorials against athletic director Paul Brcchlcr. Crabbe has been especially critical because SUI halfback Willie Fleming was declared ineligible. Small Cars No decision has been reached by state officials as to whether the state should purchase the low price cars now being offered by the Big Three-Ford, Chrysler and General Motors "The matter will be discussed before too long by the executive council," said state car dispatcher Bob Hassett. One of the problems that will confront the council is what resale value those autos wull have 2 or 3 years from now. One of the main selling points is that these automobiles are economical to operate. Hasselt pointed out that purchase of these cars — Falcon, Corvair and the Valiant— by state agencies is a national problem. The car dispatcher said he plans to write officials in other states to see what they are going to do. Hassett was dubious about the highway patrol being able to make use of these cards. So was high- way patrol chief David Hnrrick who said, "they might, work in t.hf» city but on the open highway you have to have something heavier." Campaign Contribution? Recently state senator Jack Miller, who is seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, played a friendly game of golf at Iowa City with Lt. Gov. Edward J. McManus. The Sioux City Senior shot a 71 and to quote him "McManus contibuted $1.20 to the Miller campaign." McManus, a Democrat from Keokuk who is mentioned as a likely candidate for governor, re- tailiated with the quip, "It was paid under duress." Both politicials are excellent golfers.
