•Pa.gc'M SJhr 'feint,. Editorial — East Harris County Needs To Do Some Planning-Right Do you know what East Harris county needs more than anything else at the moment.? We're talking about the area known as IrK 1 fabulous Ship Channel industrial area along the north and south sides of the great international waterway.' It's not more industry — at the moment. We've got more of that than we know what to do with. H's not to help industry plan. Actually, jmiustry will do all right for itself. It doesn't need any help. . ... What East Harris county needs worse than anything" else is to sit down and do some planning. And we do mean planning. This entire area is going to be as integrated as the dollars in a man's billfold one of. SUN SLANTS these days very soon, and it's high time that somebody burn the midnight oil in planning for the future that will be here sooner than you think. . . •. . All real estate subdivisions should be planned with more thought to the person next door. For instance, a Pasadena man bought a 168-acre tract'in the heart of Bay- : town and discovered only one possible street outlet on three sides. That isn't very good planning. That is going on all the time, but it's high time it stopped, The future generations are going to say some harsh things about this generation a few years hence. They are going to sa.y that we all should have headed for a doctor and had our collective head examined. Or else, we wouldn't have made so many mistakes. It's not that we don't have the intellect. It's the fact that nobody is fighting the fight of the public, and everybody is fighting the fight of the individual and his selfish efforts to gain. The most important thing that any East Harris county city can do now is to lay more stress on planning. All of the papers are full of articles about more and more industrial development. All of the papers are quoting Congressman Albert Thomas as saying that the 5000-acre plus San Jacinto Ordnance. Works site along the channel will be available soon for private industrial development. All of these signs point to continuous and rapid, increase in population. And the more population, the more the problems of growth—traffic and otherwise. That is why the bottlenecks should be eliminated now—before they become bottlenecks. That is why the openings and the dead ends should eliminated now, before they become critical. Now is the time that throughways and freeways shoucl be envisioned while they cost thousands instead of being put in a decade or two later when they will cost millions. They say that the right of way for ono block "in Chicago costs $10,000,000. It will cost that some day in East Harris county. We won't have to pay it, but our grandchildren will. We are leaving them enough debts to pay without adding to them by bur lack of foresight and planning. They call us the miracle section of the nation. That is a good name, in a way. If we don't start doing'more overall planning, it will take a miracle later on to undo our mistakes and to do the things we failed to do by not doing some serious planning for the future. We realize that the persons.who think big of tomorrow will be assailed as being nit-wits and extravagant, but the past 15 years in our area here has shown that the persons who "thought planned" were the ones who made the greatest contribution to the present. , J It will be that way in the future, too. By Fred Hartman rrcoM THE ISLAXD GALYESTOX—<8p.»--Don't iook now. but somebody jcft the side door open Tuesday morning. So here we are. 'Ve came here to see the commissioning of a ir;0- hiic offshore drilling, platform that will do de-r-p 'well drilling out in the Gnif of Mexico. Several years KSTO we went, to Grand Isle, La., and went To an Kurabie drilling platform, but the 1955 model is .<omc-:hing different to see. I; car. be used and moved and used again. They call this platform the "Scorpion," and ii be- jnn.j's to tho Zapata Off-Shore Co. of Houston. They b'id us down here to sec the boat or rig ror whatever you "•'ant to call it) commissioned and sunk into the water. On the ".spcrpion'' is a HO-foot derrick. All of the <jri:iir.j: eo^ipment is below deck so il can thus be f-\\-i-:'i front -?a!t water spray. Tr.i." L.S quite an outfit, and it was weii worth our time ic- come down here for a firsthand look. And Besides that, they served i;s w;5h a fine Juneh- r-or. out at Stewart's Beach after the Pier 12 ceremonies. ON TO AXAHfAC YiX,'.";A BUS IX Anshuac later on in the afternoon, .aii'J that is a different story too. Vs'Xre going- from Ga)ves;or. lo Anshuae by way •c; ;'re Bolivar fsrry and High Island. We've never V-cfrs thai \"p.y before, and from what we have been laid ii Is quite a drive. The youngsters over at Anahuac high school n:igh* have wished we ha.d stayed in Gaivesion by the time we ce* through, wiih them si their annual till sports dinner. Supt. Paul White was kind enough to invite us to the dinner to talU for our supper. T tVe were foolish enough to accept. The people of Anahuac shouldn't blame either Sup-.. White or v.s. They should blame Jimbo \Yool- ciri'JiU'-. He's the g\:y who is to biair.e. iha: Grandpa club that Jinibo has recently organized 'niiist have tossed the o" boy a little off balance! If you've driven over n;e route we're taking:, it will be old stuff, but it -\vjlJ be new to us. Weil travel Highway S7 across the ferry and on to High Island by way of Gilchrist. Then Highway 124 intersects S7 at High Island, and we'll head north toward SVowe.H. There's another road that intereseois 124 and heads west to Do-able Bayou. It's not a state highway, but Chester Rogers says it is a good road.' So 'we'll take it. It.5eok3 Hke too inviting a short cut not to try. Of' course, when you reach Double Bayou, you will be on the Anahuae-Smith Point road. We'll take that road and head for the Chambers County courthouse as fast as we can go. We want lo get then; in time to have a cup of coffee with District Clerk Wooldridie before he calls it a day and goes home. , . • After all. it v-iii be. .limbo's job to introduce us. and.we want to give him a copy of a ''suggested introduction" \ve just happened to have found time to prepare. READY FOR BIG T?t-SH , THEY'RE BUILDING a new motel project on the beach here in Galveston. The same thing: happened to old Miramax Courts thai .should happen to several downtown building on Texas Avenue in Bayown. They have been torn down. In its place, so we understand they will erect some new and snazzy beach courts . that will be as fine as any on the Island. Gaiveaton is getting ready for another big season. They hope that the prosperity of Texas •will be re- . fleeted by the tourist dollars "they attract to their playgrounds this summer. We talked to some Galves- lonians ai the commissioning- ceremonies of the Zapata craft . If you're going to vacation in Galveston. you'd better ge: your name or. the list now. We started to write early, but it's already ioo iate to be earlv. Here's What It Looks Like By Carmage Walls IT SEEMS TO be the genera! belief oi the majority of the representatives of a'.! groups contacted in Morocco, including- tho governor ot Casablanca, representatives of the 17th Air Force. Consul Generals of Casablanca and of p.abat and the American Businessmen's League at Cisabianca. which group the editors and commentators met. that what has happened in French Morocco is a starting point of what u;ti:natc2y can be expected lo happen in Spanish Morocco, the international zone of Tangier and Tunisia . In other words, there seems to be such a rush of nationalism in the Arabic wond that it is the general bdJof ihis wi'ii .weep :he v.-hoie Xorth African coast. Answering the Question as to where this nationalism seemed to be spear-headed from, the genera; con.senjus sj-emeti '<i be that it was headed up in Egyp; on the one hand and Sauu; Arabia on the other. By virtue of the fact tha'. the vi;st majority of the -".ew.spapcri and racho fac-iiitie.^ were h<-ado.uar- tercci i:i Eg^'pt. it .seemed to be the consensus that '."it? headquarters of Egypt might be stronger in its h:d for leadership than the Arabic resurgents now being experienced over Saudi Arabia. ANOTHER INTERESTING thing- in the manifestation tocyy by a nationalistic group welcoming their i:'.!'^ on his return was the fact that there has evid- ontSy been a strong feminist movement lo effect their own revolution. We witnessed hundreds of Mosiem w<;rnen drejised in their traditional dress v.-ith their vcjis Jj-opped from their faces today, dancing v.-:th their men in joy on this occasion of the rebirth, of their independent nation. V.'c were ioici ihat this feminist movement seemed lo be spearheaded by the oldest princess of the Sultan v,-ho dresses in Western attire and tees not wear veii. 1 ;. drives automobiles and plays tennis in the Vi'ciiier:; fashion. AYe were told that many of these women who hnve participated in this feminist movement Httd who are educated are organizing to go into t:it! b.'i(-rf.!ancLs as iiineran! :escher.v to !he women so ;.-;;j; thc-y might Jearn to read and writ?. UY- -,-.-(>rc -.old that the population generally in ?.'o-'j;co is over iO per ccr;i jlliierate and that this J>(K.I"U ojic of the great obstacle;; to the leaders of Capitol Summary Ihis nation in tbe conduction of its affairs as an independent and rree nation. AFTER OUR group ielt the interview with the 17th Air Force personnel, we visited upon invitation the political party headquarters, known -as' the istiglal Party. It is extremely nationalistic in its outlook. There is another party known as the.JPDl .Party which., means Democratic Independent'party, and wh.;c!il is aiso nationalistic in its outlook. At the headquarter.? of this political party the group did not have time, because of the pending arrival of the Sultan, to go into any Question period with the partv officials. , \Ve did find, however, that there were representatives of this party from the CIO labor organization ir, the United States. This added to the fact while we wore being- received by the governor of the Casablanca area, we ran into the head of the iargest ;abor union in France not controlled by the Communists and the avowed intention, as stated by this French labor organization representative, was that they hoped and intended to organize the workers of Morocco in an effort to improve their standards ot" living and that they already had obtained more than 550 thousand members. This, with the apparent agreement of the Moroi> car. authorities, seemed to indicate that this wiij be one of the methods that the newly independent government is going- to pursue or allow to be pursued in an effort tn improve the living- conditions of the >5oroccan people. SINCE. ACCORDING to statistics on a printed document presented to us, over GO per cent of the people in Morocco earn their livelihood from agriculture, it seems that the area of improvement might still be in the minority if ?he efforts are confined exclusively to workers in industry and business. In driving through tho countryside which is green and as lush looking »s the southeastern part of tho United States at its best or the southern purt of California at ji.s hrsf, stiil we saw evidence of tho most backward an-j unsanitary living- conditions almost throughout the l-'ind, with the exception of the beautiful metropolises such a., Casablanca and Rabat.

She said, "Oh, maybe about $75 a. year." Ike and Mamie's place will *pend $10,075 thi« year for soap, etc. That's even more than what it was three years ago when the President came down here with the avowed purpose of cleaning up a sr.efis.

The Sun Dear Sir: In my opinion it is the aims and ambitions of every resident of any city to look upon that city as a beautiful spot in which to iivo. When the low rent housing program is passed and the city exercises its ordinances, as Mr. Ri-id stated at tho city hail, by using the bull dozers to demolish somt of tho unsightly spots along our thoroughfares, thon nnd then only can we renlhc our aims and ambitions of making our area -,: inert: attractive placo to live. How<;vcr, I think it would be a crime and an injustice to do this before they could offer somct'ninK in its place. J think if the property owners would weigh the facts carefully the light would shine through, revealing the fact that 1 when these tarnished spots are removed, their property would increase in value thereby making them fore rnnrkelnblc or rentable. At times I am more dense, and this is one of those periods. Why would thp realtors oppose this issue, knowing full well the people who would rent thf-sn housing- units couldn't pay the commission on one of their lowest priced .sales, much less make the down payment, on the sale?

Washington Merry-Go-Round -Alf Landon Hale And Hardy, Not Bitter About Letdown 15v DHRW PEAUSOX WASHINGTON—The other day I went out to Topelia, Kansas, to talk to two lenders of the Republican party about the smouldering farm-belt resentment and what GOP leaders in Washington should do about it. v •. One of the men I talked to. Alf Landers, had led his party «.s candidate for ' president exactly two decades ago. The other, Uxn- don's prot.-gr. Fred Ha!!. !g the youngest Republican governor in the nation. Landors I found in shirtsleeves, looking philosophically out over tile Kansas prairies from his skyscraper office building. Hn has grown old gracefully, shows no bitterness over the way his party let him down in the J936 Roosevelt landslide. He rides horseback in the morning, catches up with his mail—especially lonp letters to my old partner, Bob Allen, drills a few oit. wells and enjoys life. j.M will be 70 on his next birth- «r.y. Hi.« young: friend. Gov. Hall, whom Alf helped elect, is restless, dynamic, bursting with cncrgv in his fight against old guard Republicanism. With the GOP primary still months nway, the governor came direct from his: campaign head quarters to lunch in the governor's mansion. He was already '•;;,,rting- his battle ajrainst the olii guard faction which has r.ilcd Kansas for years. THAT FACTION include;; sonic of Eisonhowrr's good frit-iuis. Yet Hall, himst-lf strong for Eisenhower, has defeated them three diffnront times in races 'or lieutenant governor nnd govuriior. He predicts lie will tlo .so ngaj-i this year. The I lie friends are: Frank Carlson. U.S. Senator from Kansas, olosr. to tho White House and a personal friend of the President. Hurry Darby, of Kansas City, Knns.. Republican National cojii- milteeman, and one of tho oriKinnl drafters of Eisenhower for Prrsi- dtiii. To tht'in yoiin,'- Gov. Fred Hall is an upj-l.-irt w';r> chp.ll<'n;, r irs their rinht to rloniinnto Kansivs-. Ai-.if thousrh it's Iraditional for n lie- publican governor of Kansas to be unopposed by his own jvirty for a second term, nevertheless the old Ktiar:i this time Ls not stU'k- injr with t.rnilition. Il is out to <!e- fent Hull. Furthermore, the old guan! iniiin\-:ly trier! to fn' White House support to do it. I-ijft !a]\ when the young governor of Kansas came to Washington for tho governor's confcrenc, Assistant President Shrrmnn Adams sent for him. "We hope." in- acf;no!>i>he<i. "then.' won't he iiny trouble in Kansas. President Eisenhower doi.s< not want anything: to happen lo his friend. 1 ?. So we liopo you won't let anyone run against Seri. C;iri- son for re-eh-etion ana \v:ll no: rhallcngf Hurry Darby for the National committee." Gov. Hall toid Adams lie was as anxious as anyone to l;e.ep peace in the party, but. shortly after hi; got Vinelc '.o Kansas'. In- found thn; Ike's friends Carlson and Darby weren't. And though lie carried out his p'e.dse to Ad«ir.s not to oppose either, the gtivc-rnur found he was being opposed by them. They have entered 1 a Republican candidate as-'ii.'ist him in the primary. So, you're coin;: lo see a knook- ilown. vlrns'-riut bHLtie insido the Republican party in Kansos. LATKR f talked to rider .SlaKs- m.'in Landon iibout this light. Sp«-'- nifically V asked him: "Is the farm revolt such that ;i miracle mijtht happen and Kansas KO Democratic?" Landon v.'a.s careful, "You have all the ingredients here that you hat! In 19.'!0," h< said. "Then you had drought. Yoi had sliding farm prices. You ha< bitter dissension inside the Rcpub Hcan purty. And George Magill, a young Democrat whom nobody had ever heard of, wa.s elected to th« senate. "Now it's almost the same." diag< no«:d Landon. "you have drought You have a widening <jap hotwecr farm prices and what the farrnc. buys. And you have dissension within the Republican party— opposition to a second term for tht governor. . 'With Jko running, he'll probabV, - carry the state." concluded the Republican who once run foi President himself, "But it won'. be easy.'' Visiting with Gov. Hall at his executive mansion, an old tudor- lype building that looked like my Krand'ather's home in Parsons. Kftns.. I flaked him why the rip- roarinff. bull-moose state of William Allen Whito and Henry Allen had now gone conservative, "I it's because during depression sti many youn.i; people moved away," he said. "They couldn't find jobs here, so they left, for the East or California. The old people : stayed behind ntul oid people are sometimes conservative. "Bui, basically." he added. ''Kansas is still progressive. There's a tremendous core of {food government people in our towns. They want honest government, and that's the core of my support." COV, HALL was an ons.husia.stic .supporter nf President Eisenhower when Ike. vetoed the gas bill. Senators Carlson :uid Schoeppe| of Kansas were not. "We had the lobbyist? doin^ the same thing in our legislature." Hall said, referring to the gas lobbyists. "On the last day the cigarette, lobbyists were passing out cartons of frt.-'..- cigarettes right on the Senate floor, brazenly walking up and down the aisio passing out free cartons. The Senate liru.1 just defeated a ei;:arerti- tax. That wa.n hnw highhanded these lobbyists can jjct." Fred Hall i* one of the few Republican governors who him been friendly to labor. They likr him. have vlftorouj'ly .supported liim in a state where labor usually vole,. Democratic. In many respects, lie and h!:t elder adviser.
