Store Gregarious Private Flyers Span Seas With Ease \ By JERRY BENNETT NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NEAt - A young man named Charles A. Lindbergh 32 years ago crossed the Atlantic Ocean alone and created an uproar second only to the First World War. Today, an average of six 'Lind- berghs' a day take off in private planes for overseas countries, without giving it more than a passing i thought. i Last year 2,564 company or in- I dividually owned aircraft, carry- j ing one or more passengers, flew to Europe, Latin America, the : Caribbean, Canada, Asia and Africa. ! So far this year, private inter- j national hops number 2,122. Avi• ation experts won't be surprised i if the 1959 total tops last year's. i These figures come from officials of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, an organization which represents pilots not connected with the armed forces or commercial airlines. They view tho international private flight boom as a natural result of American's skyrocketing interest in flying. For instance, 50.000 of AOPA's 75,000 members own their own planes. 8 Times Herald. Carroll, la. Wednesday, Oct. 21, 1959 Combine this with their love for travel and the production of safer aircraft and the result is flights i to places ranging from Paris to the Arctic. AOPA Vice President Max Karant explains: "Americans are obviously the most gregarious people in the world. And planes can take them anywhere with the same ease that a car can go on a paved highway. For instance, in the Arctic there are a lot of Eskimos who have never seen an. automobile. But most of them have seen airplanes." Probably the major reason for the growing interest in private overseas flying is expanding American investment in foreign countries. AOPA officials believe that most of the flights are for business purposes. / Many flights are made by corporation executives in large company-owned aircraft. Small businessmen pilot their own planes. AOPA officials foresee the day when just as many trips will be made for pleasure alone. Karant says: j "Most people have the idea that flying the Atlantic is very romantic if not hazardous. That was true in the days of Lindbergh, but not now. The odds are so much in the pilot's favor today that transatlantic flying has gotten to he routine. It's no longer a screwball, hair-raising idea." Another factor expected to boost overseas pleasure flying is its comparatively low cost — once you've bought the airplane. Minimum price of a small plane capable of trans-oceanic flights is about $40.000. They can be purchased second hand for several thousand dollars less. The cost of flying one from country to country is small. AOPA officials say. Karant recently flew a small two engine aircraft to Paris for $155. This included the price of gasoline and plane maintenance. Total cost of another AOPA member's flight around the coast of South America in a one engine plane was $800. In addition to gas and maintenance, this included food and hotel expenses. Karant says: "You couldn't drive a sports car that cheaply." 7-4 ^ < HEADED FOR PARIS: Max Karant gases tip at for the French capital.

Ira Gershwin 'Enjoys His Inferiority Complex By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)—Ira Gershwin says he has enjoyed an inferiority complex all his life—and it's a wonderful thing to have. "If you're conscientious." he remarked, "an inferiority com- Farm Bureau's Annual Meeting Set for Thursday The Farm Bureau's annual meeting will be held Thursday at the Starline ballroom, beginning with a cafeteria-type supper from 6:30 to 7:30. Resolutions for the year will be adopted, and some officers elected: a voting delegate, secretary, treasurer, and directors from seven townships. The resolutions have been drawn up by a committee headed by Wilbert Lussman, and are the result of an "opinionnaire" distributed among the membership. Principal speaker will be Wayne Smith, who heads the state Farm Bureau insurance program. Musical entertainment will be by the Templeton Quartet, and Carroll Mayor A. N. Neu will give the welcome address. Officers in charge are Ralph Bock, president; Floyd S c h 1 o r- holtz, secretary, and Roger Snyder, treasurer. Bob Smith, man- plex will make you work hard to refute your own opinion of yourself." At 62 Gershwin, a lyric genius assured of immortality, is painfully honest about himself and his work, has no desire to be thrust upon a pedestal of personal recognition. "My biggest goal is not to get too upset about anything," he said. "I don't want to be a celebrity. It means too much responsibility—too much mail to answer." It was back in 1917 that Ira, a Lower East Side kid first learning the magic of words, mailed, a half-page fable to the old Smart Set magazine. Back came a check for $1. "Sure, 1 cashed the check," he recalled. "I needed the money.' In the 42 years since then, Ira has written the words for some 800 musical works, including such standard songs as "The Man ; Love," "Embraceable You,' "Love Walked In." "They Can' Take that Away from Me." He teamed memorably with such noted composers as hi brother, George Gershwin. Je rome Kern, Kurt Weill, Harold Arlen and Arthur Schwartz. He has captured the flavor of those historic years in the American musical theater in a new book. Although a single song has earned him more than $20,000, he insists neither fame nor fortune ager of the Cal Car Company and is the greatest reward. Ivan Dull, insurance agency manager, will have charge of door prizes for men and women. SPOKE TOO SOON HONOLULU (AP) — Warden Jpe Harper of Oahu Prison stood up at a luncheon for a parolee rehabilitation group. He said it was nice to see reporters at the prison for something other than an escape. The luncheon guests were still' occupied with their food when two shots rang out. Two convicts had scaled the prison fence. They were recaptured within minutes. Per capita consumption of candy in the U.S. is over 16 pounds a year. Candy manufactuerers placed $4,673,000 in daily newspaper advertising last year to reach more of their best customers. "Many fine plays and novels, unfortunately, fall by the wayside after three or four years," he said. "But if you are lucky enough to turn out a good song, KO years later you can hear it and still feel you're active. "That's the real reward. It makes you feel young—as if you just wrote the song yesterday." Tolerant of imperfection in everyone except himself, Ira is stout, slow-moving, wryly friendly to all. He is a compulsive reader, complains he feels guilty if he puts down even a catalogue without reading all the print in it. He collects dictionaries, paintings and cigars. "My favorite hobby is staying home," he said. "And my second favorite hobby is not going out much."

FOB AIL Woman Tells of 15 Years as a 'Red' for the FBI LOS ANGELES (AP)—A housewife says she served in the Communist party for 15 years as an undercover agent for the FBI. "My principal job was to infiltrate the Douglas Aircraft Plant in Santa Monica," Moiselle Clinger, 42, told the House Unamerican Activities Committee Tuesday. "I was asked to supply the names of engineers and technicians whom I considered to be 'liberal.' " She said she left the Communist party three years ago. "I reported to the FBI at least once a week." Mrs. Clinger told the committee. "I decided to quit when, after 15 years, I became sick of it all. 1 thought. I had done all I could do, physically. In other words, I'd had it." Mrs. Clinger said the Commu- Party's biggest headache was its difficulty in raising money. "We were always holding parties in an effort to get money," she said. "One of our chief duties was to convince people who weren't Communists to give us money so we could keep going." She said one of the fund-raising parties was held at the home of poet Lawrence Liptpn. "Mr. Lipton's wife at the time was the late Craig Rice,- writer of detective stories." said Mrs. Clinger. "We used her name to get people to come to the party, but she had nothing to do with us." Lipton, advised of this testimony, said he recalled no such money-raising session but remembered there were dozens of parties at his various homes in Santa Monica.

Marshall rests today on a Virginia hillside overlooking Washington, where he s rved so long as a man of war and a man of peace. He was buried Tuesday at Arlington National Cemetery near the Tomb of the Unknowns. Two men whose careers were closely intertwined with Marshall's attended the services at Ft. Myer Chapel. They were President Eisenhower, who was plucked from obscurity by Marshall to become Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe in World War 11, and former Prsident Harry S. Truman. Eisenhower and Truman, cool to ach other since politics put them on opposite sides of the fence, nodded solemnly and shook"" hands. They had not met face to face or six years. After Marshall had guided America's Army through World War II as chief of staff, Truman called him back from retirement as secretary of state and later secretary of defense. Tuesday Truman summed up Marshall as "the reatest of the great." MALL CHILD DROWNS WATERLOO (AP) - Julia Ann Schmitz, 18-month-old daughter of VIr. and Mrs. Kenneth Schmitz of!

Australia iAP) — An exciting dream is coming true in Australia. The waters of the Snowy River soon will flow west to water the rich but dry plains of the interior. Through the ages, this river, fed b.v the melting snow from Australia's Southern Alps, has emptied into the sea at the southeast corner of the continent. Water has run to waste in the sea while the fnland has been parched. For a century Australians have dreamed of diverting the Snowy through the mountains to water the inland. The dream is becoming a fact through the development of the billion dollar Snowy Mountains hydroelectric scheme. The first major power station in the scheme, the size of a cathedral hollowed out of the solid rock 1,000 feet underground, is being opened this month. The station will use water diverted under the mountains through a 14-mile tunnel. Smaller power stations have been operating for some years, but the fundamental idea of diverting the Snowy River westward becomes a fact with the opening of the first underground power station. Diversion of the Snowy waters will extend the prosperous irrigation areas along the banks of the Murray and Murrumbidgee rivers that meander through the slates of Victoria and New South Wales into South Australia. These rivers today lack sufficient water for more irrigation without the Snowy diversion. The coastal country that will lose much of the Snowy River water is well-watered anyway. The Snowy scheme is now 10 jears old, and will take at least as long again to finish. When complete it will have II power stations generating 25 million kilowatts of electricity, nine major dams and 58 miles of diversion tunnels. It will make available every year enough water to cover two million acres to a depth of one foot. Economists claim the electricity alone will be sufficient to justify the great cost. The huge water diversion, paid for by electricity charges, will en-j able Australia to lift her food pro-; duction by 66 million dollars a year. l Engineers estimate the Eucum- bene Dam, biggest in the plan, : will take 10 years to fill, allow; ing for water that will be used. ! This dam has a capacity of 3,- S60.000 acre feel, enough to put i.early an inch of water over all of England, Scotland, and Wales, i Its 381 ft. high wall, half a mile thick at the base, contains nearly 1 nine million cubic yards of earth and stone (KILLED BY TRACTOR !
