EDITORIAL- Courts Suffering from Selfish Partisanship Leaders in the recent session of Congress as much as admitted failure to consider badly needed legislation enlarging the number of federal court judges was effectively stopped for the simple reason it would present an opportunity for President Eisenhower to make the appointments. The Democratic congressional leadership naturally assumed that a Republican chief executive would take a dim view of appointing other than those of his own political faith to any judgeships available. But the need for additional federal judges continues pressing. It is a matter of record that there are more than 71,000 cases pending in federal district courts. If additional judges are not prbvided for, it, will require 16 years to clean these cases from the dockets. Such a situation cannot but result in extensive public scorn for the entire court system and a widespread loss of public confidence in the entire legal profession and procedure. It is also a matter of record that many individuals and corporate interests have actually suffered losses as a result of impossible delays in obtaining justice in federal courts. lowans are indeed well acquainted with the need for a third federal judge in this state. There have been but two federal judges in Iowa for ages, notwithstanding the increase in population and litigation. It is obvious the situation Time* Herald, Carroll, la. Saturday, Oct. 24, 1959 is critical and that it can be alleviated only with the enlargement and modernization of the federal judicial makeup at the district level. Our courts, of course, are considered above and entirely free of politics. But the Democratic leadership in the last session of the national Congress elected to place narrow political expediency over sorely needed relief for a serious glut in federal district courts resulting directly from a shortage of judges. It is the hope of that leadership, admitted with no qualms whatsoever, that if the enlargement of the judgeships can be held up for awhile, the next occupant of the White House might make appointments more to their liking. But just such type of leadership might very well result in a change at the Congressional level to radically upset their well calculated and obviously selfish plans. * m ~' Thoughts And they shall stand every morning, thanking and praising the Lord, and likewise at evening. — I Chron. 23:30.

Remember Way Back When President Polishes Tools for Coming Political Fray BY RAY CROMLEY NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) —Pres ident Eisenhower has made up his mind. He's going to go all out — do everything he can to help see a Republican elected president to succeed him. He's determined to personally work to get as close to a Republican majority in Congress in 1960 as possible. He has convinced himself that a Republican president and a Republican Congress are two of the most important things he can help achieve in his remaining 14 months as president. This is a vastly different attitude from the old "the president must be above politics" concept he used to have. It's a part of "the new Ike" — and he loves it. Mr. Eisenhower is now mapping his strategy: He is considering a series of secret cabinet meetings devoted to political tactics — the first political cabinet sessions Mr. Eisenhower has ever held. Purposes: To find ways for cabinet members to give every legitimate break to Republicans; find means for Republicans to get the credit for administration acts; educate cabinet members to make every trip count politically — in Maine, California, Michigan, or wherever. He may personally contact the 200 or so Republicans who have held high presidential appointments under his administration — in an attempt to mobilize these key men and women for the 1960 races. He will persistently needle party chairmen throughout the U.S. to beat the bushes for men who can win. He will personally talk to men he considers good — try to persuade them to run for office. If the 1960 GOP candidate for president wants him — he's already decided to go personally campaigning full tilt for the slate. But most important, in early 1960 he will start out swinging— carry the legislative fight to Congress right from the first — pushing, leading — and making public the difference between his Republican program and the Democratic party program. Tactics will be worked out well in advance through a series of frank, no-punches-barred strategy conferences with Republican Senate and House of Representatives chieftains. President Eisenhower got his first real taste of this political battling this year. He liked it. The fighting is going to be stepped up. Aim of the congressional fighting: to get his program through, of course. But there's also another purpose — Mr. Eisenhower 'thinks hard- fought battles over key bills will show people how Republican beliefs are different from Democratic beliefs. He will use these congressional fights as a basis for television talks. In these, he will try to outline for the man on the street the essential differences between what Democrats want and what Republicans want. Mr. Eisenhower's theory: once the public knows the difference, the majority will vote Republican.

By MARIE DAERR Are you missing out on Social Security benefits that are due you? Arthur S. Flemming, Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, believes that many Americans are in this situation. He believes they may be unaware of their rights under the 1958 amendments or may not know that they must file application before payments start. About 190,000 men, women and children were added to the list of those receiving monthly old-age, survivors and disability insurance benefits, as the result ' of the amendments, Secretary F 1 e m- ming announced. Biggest group made eligible were 126,000 dependents of disabled workers. About 50,000 other disabled workers received monthly benefits under a new provision. This eased the work requirements for persons applying under the disability insurance provision. It also extended to June 30, 1961, the deadline for filing of applications by people with long-standing dis abilities. Before September, 1958, disablec workers between 'the ages of 50 and 65 who were applying for benefits and those under 50 who wanted their Social Security rec Low-Cost Luxury Be Cheerful, Considerate When Visiting Sick Friend (Jot a sick friend?

They needed Socia Security credit for at least five o the 10 years before becoming dis abled, and for at least 18 months out of the three years preceding disability. Under the 1958 amend ments, Social Security credit fo 18 months out of the last three years is no longer required. The amendment extending th filing deadline gave workers whose disability may have begu: as far back as 1941 until June 30 1961, to ask to have their Socia Security records frozen as of the time they actually became disabled. Thanks to another change that permits payments to dependent parents, even if the worker is also survived by a widow, widower or child, 3,000 aged dependent parents of workers who died since 1939 have been added to the benefit rolls. Perhaps many other parents who were denied benefits in the past have not yet heard of the law changes," Secretary F 1 e m- ming said. Through another law change, a disabled son or daughter, 18 years of age or older, of a retired or deceased parent may now qualify as a dependent, even though he or she has been receiving less than the previously necessary one-half support from the parent. Still other amendments permit continuation of benefit payments when one beneficiary marries another; permits payment of mother's benefits when a child has been adopted by the stepfather, even though the mother had been married to the stepfather for less than one year at the time of his death; permits payment of benefits to a child of a retired worker adopted less than three years previously.

She plans to attend a smaller school and ina- i jor in teaching. When asked what her reaction was to being chosen a homecoming queen candidate, Joan replied that when Mr. McKlhinney informed her, she was so happy she could hardly believe it. To Joan this homecoming will seem twice as exciting as any other. Donna Rae Berndl Hey! Who's that five-foot-two, brown-haired senior girl coming down the hall? Why, it's Donna Rae Berndt, one of the three candidates for homecoming activities. Sha exclaimed, "Gee, I felt so pxcited and happy that I about fell through the floor when Mr. McElhinney told me. It seems like a big dream." Donna is very active in Carroll High's activities. Cheerleading, concert band, head twirler of the marching band, G.R.A., Pep Club, mixed chorus, sextet, and Ace staff keep Donna's week busy. This year she holds the office of mixed chorus librarian. Donna's future plans are to take nurse's training, or study to be a gym teacher. Jan White Jan White, when asked her reaction on being told of her selection as candidate for homecoming queen, replied she was really surprised and excited. She added that she always looks forward to homecoming and all its festivities and being a candidate will make this year one not to be forgotten. Jan White and Joan Bruggeman Arc Attendants "I crown then. Donna Rae Hprndt, Homecoming Queen of Carroll Hit/h School for the year 1959-BO." Tho.se were the words spoken by Marianne van Schaik, A.F.S. student from Holland, Fri- jday evening, Oct. 2.1, during the half-time of the Carroll-Ida Grove football game. Quoen Donna and her attendants, Joan Brufjgeman and Jan White i were escorted by Danny Anthony. I Robert Hatch and Fred Church' smith. Under an arch of flags pnd batons, the royalty a p- proaced the platform while the Carroll High Band played "Over the Rainbow." The Queen was seated on a decorated throne placed in front of a back drop of rainbow design. An attendant was on either side. During the Queen's roi^n, the i band presented the half-time show i of "Little Red Riding Hood." The main characters were:Sara Robb as Little Red Riding Hood, Chuck Franz as the wolf, and Paula Peters as Grannie. While the band was forming the letters I.G. to salute Ida Grove, the Queen and her attendants were driven around the track by Jim Wilson. Next the Band marched into a C. H. formation, saluting Carroll High students and alumni. As a closing tribute to Queen Donna, the band members lined a path to the bleachers, where the royalty remained for the rest of the football game.
