EDITORIAL- Brltish Voters Want Continued Stability Not since World War I has any party matched the British Conservatives of today in winning three straight, national elections. Their smashing new victory, virtually doubling their former majorities, poses big questions for the defeated Labor Party. The general view seems to be that this triumph was compounded of the economic boom, with its full flow of consumer goods/ and a persisting trust in Prime Minister Harold Macmillan in the vital business of dealing with the Russians. The reports indicate that, despite the fact that more public attention was given in the campaign to foreign matters, the voters were most impressed by economic conditions. Yet. there can be little solace for the beaten Laborilcs in such comments as: "You can't lick prosperity." The truth 'is, this loss was the most crushing they, have sustained since their flood tide of power began to recede around 1950. The result makes both British and outside observers wonder whether the Labor Party has any answers at all which Britons can find acceptable. At the peak of their power from 1!M5 to 1950. the Laborites nationalized a number of British industries and activities. These are now generally established and no party would attempt to alter them. But the voters show no disposition whatsoever to extend nationalization to oilier fields. That cuts the heart out of the Time* Herald, Carroll, la. Saturday, Oct. 17, 1959 Socialist program. It left them this time promising such things as higher pensions at the same moment they pledged to freeze or reduce income and sales taxes. Obviously this was a platform that did not register well with the voters. Though Macmillan's foreign affairs position appears not to have been the decisive issue, evidence suggests Britons do nevertheless place more trust in him than in his Labor opposites. It is even possible they feel the same doubt as Americans over having to consider Aneurin Bevan, leftist Laborite, as foreign secretary. Beyond question the outcome is pleasing to Americans of both political parties, since the Conservatives are regarded here as far stronger than the Laborites in support of NATO and other aspects of a stout defense against Soviet communism. The British vote looks like a powerful declaration for firmness, stability and continued economic well being.

When Nikita Khrushchev was in Washington he revealed a consistent pattern of wanting everyone to accept world conditions as they are, without change or correction. This seemed to be his price for peace. It comes high. When he was asked about Russian suppression of the Hungarian revolt, he assumed an angry, "Why bring that up?" attitude. He tried to give the impression that everything was love and kisses between Russians and Hungarians now. He did not want to talk about old "dead rat" difficulties. On the Berlin situation, he tried to put over the idea that postwar developments in Europe had led to the establishment of two German states. He considered any proposal to unite them unrealistic. He therefore advocated the signing of separate peace treaties with two Germanys. He refused to consider unification of Germany or unification of Korea and Viet Nam. He refused to discuss Laos or the Chinese Communist takeover in Tibet when members of the Senate 1 Foreign Relations Committee brought them up. He refused to consider any movement to liberate the Communist satellite nations of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Rumania, Albania, Lithuania, Latvia or Esthonia. He was extremely annoyed by U. S. observance of "Captive Nations Week" which implied they should be freed. He wants the United Nations to admit Communist China, giving it the Security Council seat now held by the Nationalist Chinese government on Formosa. What all these things add up to is that the Russian Chairman is trying to consolidate all the gains which Communist aggression has won since the end of World War 11. All these things run counter to what has been American foreign policy in both the Eisenhower and Truman administrations. For the United States to recognize these conquests now would be a complete reversal of form. And yet — there is some opinion, more prevalent in Europe, perhaps, than in this country, that the Khrushchev-Communist position is the more realistic. The argument runs that the Chi- Daily Times Herald Dully Except Sundays and Holidays By The Herald Publishing Company 515 N. Main Street Carroll, Iowa JAMES W. WILSON, Publisher HOWARD B.

The Red China-backed Communists aren't going to pull back from North Korea or North Vietnam. The Chinese Communists aren't going to pull out of Tibet, and India isn't going to make them. Also, the Russians aren't going to give up their European satellites. So why try to think this might happen? It is pointed out that the United States recognizes any new revolutionary government that seizes power in Latin America, no matter how good an ally the old government was, or how right or left wing the new regime may be. But the question is asked — If this policy is all right for Latin America, why shouldn't the same policy be applied across the board and throughout the world? It is further pointed out that the United States has let a lot of bygones be bygones in making its own postwar accommodations. The Japanese atrocities in China and the Nazi and Fascist abuses in Germany and Italy have been forgotten. These former enemies are now accepted allies. The fallacy of this argument is that the military dictatorships of these countries were first purged of their war criminals. They were converted into practicing and successful democracies before they were made allies. But the Communists line is that all their suppression of liberties since the end of World War II should be forgotten and that, to relax tension, a new peace should be built on conditions as they exist today — not what they were or what the West would like them to be. Agreeing to this formula at any new Summit conference is considered impossible if the United States is to hang on to any of its old ideals. Tobacco advertisers increas e d their investment in daily newspapers 23.4 per cent in 1958.

Q — Is it correct to address a clergyman as "reverend"? A — No, reverend is not a title and cannot be correctly used as a form of address.

Ozark Area Makes Bid Attract Retired People By MARIE DAERB "Come to the Ozarks." Retired people are given this warm invitation by an attractive, information-packed booklet that is the Ozarks' bid for their attention when they pick a spot to spend their later years. 'The Ozarks Playgrounds area has taken a competitive place with Florida and California," according to Tom Ayers of Joplin, Mo., executive director of the Ozarks Playgrounds Assn., which put out the 32-page illustrated brochure. Ayers said 50,000 copies were run off for national distribution in the first printing. Mail requests to the association's general offices, 112 W. Fourth St., Joplin, will be filled. "Our booklet answers a need that became apparent since the association formed a Retirement Homeseeker Department," Ayers said. Southwest Missouri, Northern Arkansas, Southeast Kansas and re- the Northeast Oklahoma are the gions described invitingly in booklet. Climate? The booklet states that the Ozarks area has about 275 days ot sunshine a year, that the annual average monthly temperature is 56 degrees and that the average maximurnjpr the year is 65. Spring weather starts in March, it says, and sometimes it's still shirt sleeve weather in November, Home building costs? According to the booklet, these are at least 25 per cent lower than for similar construction in other areas. Living costs? From 10 to 20 per Pity Her if She's Just a Gal Who Can't Say 'No' An awful lot of women take on more than they should because they have never discovered that it is actually possible to say "no." They are afraid that if they don't accept an invitation they'll hurt somebody's feelings. So they end up running around to parties they don't really want to go to and in turn entertain people they don't care two whoops about. They are afraid that if they don't accept a job in whatever organization they belong to somebody will think they arc slacking, and soon they find themselves doing all the hard jobs. They wouldn't- think of turning down an invitation to a club for fear someone wouldn't u n d e r-. stand. So whether they like the term or not, they eventually end up as clubwomen. They let their children impose en them because they think they can't say "no" without losing their children's love, when actually no child long respects a mother who doesn't know how to say "no" and make it stick. Women who can't say "no" oven buy things they don't need or actually want because when selling pressure is put on them they can't quite get up the courage to say, "No, i can't afford it." Actually, "no" is a very easy word to say. And if said with a gracious firmness it rarely causes ;my lasting resentment or unpleasantness. If you don't believe it, just try saying "no" the next few times you really want to but are tempted to say a doubtful "yes" instead. After the first few tries you'll be amaxe\l at how easy it is to say "no" — and how much simpler it makes your life when that little word is necessary. (Ail uignts Keserveo, NEA Service, cent below the average, says the brochure. Natural beauty, rodeos, county fairs, which begin in late August and continue until mid-October, and year-round fishing are entertainment lures. The booklet also has a state-by- state directory on items ranging from banks to tourist facilities. You will learn that Cotter, Ark., is headquarters for float t r i p s where rainbow trout abound; that Galena, Kan., has 13 churches, civic clubs and excellent shopping facilities and that Carthage, Mo., welcomes visitors to its marble quarries. If older people have doubts about their importance these days, this booklet should help dispel these ideas! Q — Are laws on state assistance to the aged the same throughout the country?—L.R.F. A — No. They vary from state to state. Q — I am a widow who is interested in moving into the South or Southwest and buying a home with four or five bedrooms which I could rent out to college students. Is there any way of finding out which colleges have many students living in private homes? — Mrs. B. R. A — Go to your library and look up colleges in the areas in which you are interested. Then write to the registrars, asking your question. I certainly recommend that you visit several of the college towns which you think would be suitable, before you move from your present location.

Homecoming Activities Under Way Big Role for Cheerleaders With homecoming approaching, the cheerleaders will be playing a very big part. Their fun will begin on Thursday evening when they lead the snake dance through town. At each intersection they will stop for a rest and do some cheers. Upon returning to the school, they will have a pep rally with a bonfire. Friday will also be a big day. In the afternoon, they will be in the parade. They will lead the pep rally following the parade downtown. That evening at the game they will not only cheer, but they will pin the flowers on the Ida Grove cheerleaders. All in all they are looking forward to an exciting two days, as well as the rest of the high school. Editorial The sophomore English class wrote editorials pertaining to the school or some subject of their own choice. School spirit, especially before homecoming, proved a popular topic; more time between classes would be appreciated; dismissal at noon at different intervals to avoid congestion and a long waiting line; curriculum and extra-curricular conflicts; synchronize all clocks; Junior College; courtesy in halls and elsewhere; the military ball; effect of television upon our lives; pride in our school and willingness to pay for its maintenance; and planning ahead in choosing subjects to be studied. This last editorial is printed in full. While going to high school, very careful thought should be given to what subjects you wish to take. Today many high school seniors further their education, and should, therefore, choose courses that will prove useful in college. Mathematics and science are important if the students hope to become engineers or scientists. Typing, general business, and shorthand are necessities for future secretaries or business men and women. Art, home economics, English, and foreign languages are important for teachers. Although many do not know what their future career may be, they take a variety of subjects, and thus have a foundation for many occupations. A college education is almost required to be able to run a successful business or enter a vocation. By planning ahead, your college years will be easier. — Bethany Anneberg.

Because of jealousy, Edmond Dantes, a young sailor, was sentenced to life imprisonment under the charge that he was a Bonapartist. In 1815 in France, after the exile of Napoleon, this was a political crime. He was imprisoned for fourteen years during which time he met a fellow prisoner who told him about a buried treasure on the island of Monte Cristo. After the friend's death, Edmond made his escape. Soon he went to Monte Cristo and found the treasure, which was fabulous. During his imprisonment, his father died of starvation and grief, his betrothed married one of the men responsible for his imprisonment, who, like the other two accomplices, had become very rich and powerful. Edmond changed his title to the Count of Monte Cristo, spent much time in becoming well educated and returned to avenge these people. He acquired admittance into their society" by~SBVtng the life of one of their sons in Rome. The methods he used in avenging these people were complicated and very clever. He repaid those to whom he felt gratitude. It is a fascinating character study as well as plot — a most enjoyable book.—Kit Weaver. Football! This is Ron Fricke's favorite sport!
