TMiKuei"o'uier"tnui ifim: Mlh - monta* ·--- I ; Member *«dH Bureau of CltesJarlea BarelyGod will not hear vanity, neither will thei Almighty regard it-Job 35:13 Need Of Air Service ; A story in the Stillwater, Okla., Ncws- Prens reminds us that Fayetteville is in need.of, and actively is seeking, air service into and out of. our town. The Stillwater article says, "Most observers believe it is only a matter of time before Stillwater re- chives air line service, but the hands on tke clock move slowly while awaiting something important as this."; Same here! For a number of yaars Kay- etteville groups have sought to fet "·«*"- larly^ftablished lines to put atr service into lhi« area. We need it-*nd we believe the lines could profit from it, too. ; Quoting from the Stillwater news- piper:"" ' ' ' , "Tt has been pointed out by numerous citizens that it fa possible to travel to Chicago, St. Lonii, Washington and other distant point! in less time than it takes to go from Stillwater to Tulsa -or Oklahoma City." '·'--- The same might be said of Fayetteville, substituting "Tulsa and -Little) Rock." Stillwater, the horn* of Oklahoma A. and M. College, is off the beaten path, and it, like Fayetteville, hai a modern air field. Tht CAA appropriated 9980,000 to bulM the Stillwater field, and the city Itself hai spent $876,223 In diwVophig trie airport and In the extension of facilities. A. and M. College hat iptrit $800,000 for an administration building and other facilities. Like Fayettavflle, the Stillwater port hai runways, a modern hangar, and other buildings, and like our town all they n«ed now: is air Mi-vie* . : .. ; Leaden of eight 1 Arkaniai citiei will go befottt the Civil Aeronautics Board in Waihhifftbn 'thii fall to straw their nMd for air transportation without indorsfnp; any particular airline. Fayetteville is not one of theH eight citiei, but, tike those which will be represented lit thfs hearing. we iie«d the service, also. And we need not be particular which lervlce comes in-we heed air service, and the company which will give us that service is the one we want to do business with. * The New»-Press holds that acquisition of regular air service Into and out of Stillwater will help that Oklahoma college town secure industry, and in all probability the same would hold true In Fayette- Villf It would give ui a talking point, at any. rate. The handi on the clock move slowly. It is true, but we're still hopeful that if we Jceep on pushing the cane, Fayetteville can eventually get what it so urgently needs. * A middle-of-the-road policy may be effective for politicians, but it is not recommended for automobile drivers. It is heaven upon earth to have a man's mind move in chnrlty, rest in providence, and turn upon the poles of truth.--Bacon Economy is half the battle of life; it Is not so hard to earn money as to spend it well.--Charles H. Spurgeon : Ere you consult fancy, purse.--Franklin consult your They'll Do It Every Time ^;£^-L"ji^ . . ^^^isgie THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·r Dtew rtAtgoN While Drew Pearson is 'en t brief vacation, the Washington Merry-Go-Round Is being written by several distinguished guest columnists, todty't being Charles F. Home, civil aeronautics administrator, U. S. Department of Commerce. Washington--It's late on a dark and stormy night. The place, an airport at Paris, Rome, Cairo, or In the Far East. Pawtngeri art watch- Ing the wind and rain beat against the windows of the airplane when they notice the stewardess unlock the door to the pilot's compartment and a man In » butlness suit enter. He sits on the "jump Beet," and as the plane takes off, checks all phases of the flight to determine whether safety standard! for operation and maintenance of U.S. flag carriers are being observed. In aircraft plants throughout the United Slates, other CAA tafety agents constantly inspect pieces of fabricated equipment to determine whether they meet the safety specifications set by the CAA. A year ago artillery-shell fire struck the U.S. Embassy In Bangkok, Thailand, as inturgent nnval officers revolted and attempted to establish a new government. In the hostilities which followed thete were approximately 3,000 casualties and the U.S. Embassy was tttuck four times by artillery-shell fire and about 100 times by small-arms fire. All normal communications were cut off and the stand-by generator at tlic Embassy would not work. U. S. commercial aircraft were eh route to Thailand, arid there was no way either to warn them off or to notify the Department of State and military authorities in .Washington. The head of the CAA International region office In Bangkok made a dramatic night dash under fire through the front lines of the opposing forces to an aeronautical radio station which was situated within the Thai naval compound. Although stopped and forced to leave his vehicle, the CAA representative managed to talk h(s way Into the radio station. There he warned off and diverted all U.S. commercial aircraft, and transmitted tht first word of the uprising to reach the outside world. * * * It is rarely, of course, that CAA personnel have to operate under gunfire, but they do cope with an amazing variety of emergencies in order to make flying the routinely safe experience it is for the average American. In flight-testing the competency of applicants fpr airman certificates, CAA safety agents frequently must cut one of an airplane's two engines, to see whether the pilot reacts promptly and correctly. H he does, he gets the CAA certificate which is an assurance of safety to the public. If he doesn't the CAA agent has to move fast to save his neck. Reports In our files show that In U tett Incidents, quick thinking by CAA safety agents saved almost half n million dollars worth of airplanes and the lives of «0 persbns. A typical, tars* report Is that on Case 8-1SO-0: ''Air transport rating applicant In DC-3. Making low approach with left engine out. Over airport at «00 feet, hood was removed and applicant ttarted turn to left. Suddenly changed mind and rolled aircraft rapidly Into an It turn. Alrplart* spun to right. Coordinated efforts of company check pilot and agent stopped spin and recovered. Barograph In airplane showed recovery was 50 feet above level of airport." A majority of the CAA "saves," however, art achieved by CAA ground personnel, who man tht more-than 70,000 mile network of federal airways. From their posts In communications stallont, control towers and control centert, they htve "talked down" hundreds of bit pilots. Although the highways of the sky are clearly marked by CAA radio bcami, every now and then tome pilot will become confused. Then CAA communicators or controllers go to work as they did when a night-flying National Ouard pilot contacted our Macon, Oa., radio during a thunderstorm and reported his position unknown. The communique thought of the searchlight used to advertise a drive-In theater. He asked the operator to leave the searchlight on. The pilot finally taw the beam, dttermlrltd his position, and proceeded to a safe landing. W W W All branches of the military depend htavlly on CAA services, particularly on Its air navigation and traffic control facilities which, for the latt four years, have been improved and operated under a "common system" concept. Thus, the Air Defense Command uses Information obtained tnd correlated by CAA to Identify friendly aircraft flying In our coastal and border de- fenie zones, so that it can "scramble" Interceptors against unidentified targets appearing on. radar or reported by ground observer!. * * * On the civil defense side, CAA has worked closely with state and local officials to plan for the effective use of smaller airplanes. How these can be marshalled In an emergency was demonstrated at Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where 309 private airplanes hauled 110,000 pounds of simulated supplies into the "stricken" city within two hours after a mock attack. While we all pray that this type of disaster will not occur, it Is good to know that airplanes can and do perform such mercy missions when Midwestern rivers overflow, or when areas of the Northwest are isolated by a blizzard. The airplane has an important humanitarian role lo play in our world relations, too, and CAA is proud to have participated in one of its first such demonstrations. When locusts threatened the food supplies of Iran In 1951, CAA experts assisted the Department of State in rushing two four-cnfilno planes, one loaded with small spray plane.i, the other with pilots and spray liquid, to It's Hard to Tell Which Is More Frightening By Jimmy Hatlo the endangered area. They beat off the insect plague, and set a pattern which promises to help wipe out hunger, and thereby remove a major cauio of wars. But while CAA activities overseas tend to be more spectacular--witness the recent episode involving oUr safety agents who worked with the CAB and the Brazilian government to investigate an accident In the heart of the jungle--the day-to-day activities of CAA people are concerned more with the safety of the 23,000,000 passengers who ride our domestic airlines and of the people who fly our 60,000 civil aircraft. Any time of day or night you are likely to tee a CAA sptety agent board an airliner in the United States, and make the same kind of "en route" inspection that is conducted on our carriers aboard. * * * At the same time, CAA "range riders of the sky," more prosaically described as airways patrol pilots, may be check-flying the courses of a radio range, or the accuracy of instrument landing radio beam, to-.make sure that all pilots can follow them with confidence. Three of these range riders gave their lives in 1948, when they craihed Into mountains near Ward, Colo., apparently as a result of extreme turbulence in the area. · But It Is because of their work and the work of other CAA employes that United States civil aviation hat been able to set world records for tafety. You can board an airliner today with less risk than you can drive yonr car, thanks, to the teamwork of government and industry in the field of civil aviation. How Time Flies Thirty Yean Age Today (Fayetteville Daily Democrat, August 27, 192J) Men, no matter how long out of work, how badly In need of money, nor how many folk they have at home suffering, will not peel apples. At least, so say the canning factories here, one of which, Appleby Brothers, will use from 90 to 100 extra women peelers tomorrow. App!: canneries ire now working at capacity in order to prevent loss of fruit. "Associated Students" is name of a new organization for student government which will have absolute control over all student activities at the University of Arkansas next year. One of the rules of the association regulates the soliciting of advertising by students for publications tupposed to be representing the University. University publications which will be supported are the Arkansas Traveler, weekly newspaper; the Arkansas Engineer and the Raiorback annual published by the junior class. Twenty Yean Ago Today (Fayetteville Dally Democrat, August 27, 1932) Batteries A and B of the 14Jnd Field Artillery will leave for Fayetteville tomorrow after two weeks training in Camp McRae at Little Rock. -The guardsmen probably will arrive here Sunday. The local batteries made the trip to Little Rock in army trucks and will return the same way. A telegram was received here today from Bishop James Cannon, Jr., at Washington, D. C., saying he would leave Washington tomorrow to be present at the annual session of the Board of Temperance and Social Service of the Methodist Episcopal church, South, here. Bishop Cannon is to speak Tuesday evening and may remain over for the Wednesday session. Ten Yean Age Today (Northwest Arkansas Times, August 27, 1042) A bond Issue of $100,000 to enlarge and improve "the Fayetteville airport was voted by a majority of 98 by the citizens of the city In a special election yesterday. The vote was 40« for the bond issue to 308 against. The vote on the tax to retire the bonds was 413 for to 324 against. The bond issue was proposed by a joint committee from the Chamber of Commerce and city council as tho most practical method of giving the city adequate air facilities.

IV WHEN Louise found that she was going to have a child, a deep peace enfolded her. She was filled with a new strength, a new jlife.

She felt no fear, {for a divine energy seemed to be ·supporting her. She trusted it to .carry her through.

"Oh, Louise!" Aunt Ella was shocked and grieved. "You can't go back on us like that. You have a profession. You can't degenerate ,nto a common housewife." "T OU1SE has alv.ays loved her "- 1 home," said Mrs. Bentiey coldly. She had no sympathy with her sister. Women became so unladylike when they argued bout woman suffrage. Furthermore, she was not flattered by the suggestion that she herself was a "common housewife." "Louise has brains," Aunt Ella flared out. "There are plenty of silly little fools who can't do anything else but keep home. She's Bt for something jfrs-'er. What are you doing about your paint- Ing, Louise?" "Oh, I can't do anything about that nowl" Louise cried, deeply distressed to have her aunt echo- Ing all the sentiments she herself had expressed so often before her marriage. "Later on, -'ter the baby grows up, I'll take It all up again. But right now I feel that 1 just want to live--just to be myself. I don't teem to want to be famous any more. H takes all my tune and thought to be a good wife and mother/ "Humph!" snorted Aunt Ella. "It anybody else but you aa|d that, Louise, I'd call It both and twaddle.' Sht kt Hit Matter drop, but through the reel of her batty luncheon the eyed Loulte keenly from time to time. "Mtyhe It's money," Aunt Ella thought. "How could the marry a man named H'rrjl. Such JIT Ntw York--Hardtntd political reporters, when listening to political speeches, have a probably foolish tendency to study -the manner instead of weighing tht matter. Ajlnf dramatic critics havt the same trouble--they havt already ittn too many plays for their own food, and they tend to take the drama for (ranted and (ivt their chief attention to the acting. The fact remains that in politics, communication it the first requirement for success. You can have the best ideas and the most appeal(ng program imaginsble. But you will get nowhere if you cannot explain the ideas and put the program over. Judged in these bleak, practical terms, Gen. Dwlght D. Elsenhower's American Lelion speech--the true opening gun In his battle for the presidency--was a curioutly mixed performance. What one wanted to learn, of course, was whether Eisenhower hid really hit his stride. Here was a man who could, in the old days, truly electrify an audience. Sometimes he would have something 1 big and complicated to sty. Sometimes he would be dealing: only in the pleasing generalities, about country, home «hd mother, whjch Army public relations officers love to put in the mouths of their masters. But whatever he had to say, Oeneral Elsenhower rarely failed to grip and .dominate his audience. Candidate Eisenhower is not quite the same. He had done his own speech-writing for the American Legion meeting, and the advance copies showed that he had written a speech with meat and power in it. He strode onto the platform in the convention hall looking every inch the image that America has of him. His mere physical presence --his look of being a big man, at once strong and broad-gauge -brought the waiting Legionnaires to their feet In a storm of cheers. · * * But when the cheering died and he began to speak, he somehow appeared shackled. He has never had the practiced political orator's trick of building up climaxes arid drawing out applause. But now he almost seemed to throw his points away. It was an effort for him, one felt; it was a necessary duty rather than a pleasure, to be there and to tell his story. Occasionally he would lose himself, for a paragraph or two, in what he had to say; and you could feel the crowd beginning to respond and glow. But then he would look worried and ill at ease again, and the response would die away. The speech was not · failure, · by my means. It told its story of * in America exposed to terrible ' perils; and it mad* it* appeal, for an America strong and united, capable of defying any threat it conveyed Elsenhower's i n n a t e lirgenesa and simplicity. It was almost re-assurjng, just because it was so un-artful. But none the lets, the fact had to be fteed -this speech did not grip or dominate or really electrify an audience that was visibly waiting and hoping to be swept off its feet. One saw, of course, tht natons for Eisenhower's uneasiness) on the platform. When he spoke in uniform, it was a brilliant but amateur performance -- a mere Interruption in a quite different career. But now he was suddenly a professional, with everything depending on how he performed. Then, too, he was and is a man whose greatest power flows from his sincerity. Yet' in th*te last weeks he has been pulled and hauled from dawn till dusk. He has been asked to make cheap compromises by every cheap Republican politician from Maine to California. He has, been pleaded with continuously to indulge in the little tricks and petty, fraudulent appeals of the slick political operators. And this sudden exposure to the seamy side of politics must have made him doubt whether, after all, it was a strength to be sincere. This doubt about the value of his own sincerity is, plainly, Dwight Eisenhower's real handicap as he begins his vital campaign. Yet the record of the last 10 days suggests that Eisenhower has the- inner toughness that,he needs so badly. In the sphere of domestic policy, he has defied the backward-lookers, to declare frankly and forthrightly that he means to retain and continue the programs that have benefitted gnat groups of Americans in these last 20 years. In the sphere of foreign policy, he has defied the venomous partisans, to be truthful and honest about such (rave problems at the Korean war. And In the sphere of his relations with, his own party, he has defied the unprincipled extremists, to condemn the character assassins and the witch- hunters. If he can st|ck to this line he has chosen--if he can resist the temptation to win easy cheers by telling the extremist minority what they want to hear--Dwlght Elsenhower can becomt t formidable campaigner between now and election day. anemic name! Probably he's too mean to give her the money for lessont and the girl's too proud to admit It. And jet the really looks itppy. Perhaps she wouldn't have been a real help to the Cause. Too sweet. Maybe she's soft and sen- imental. Artists generally are. 5ut I always thought Loulae had too m u c h character to grow mawkish over babies. Well. I can't waste, time on her." Aunt Ilia rushed off to a committee meeting. It was a -long ime before Loulte saw her again. Occasionally her name was in the japer In connection with the Woman Suffrage movement. * · · 'THE sunlight streamed Into the ·*· dining room.

Recently I had a baby and, rather than give him up, I am boarding him with a private family. I realize what a mistake I made but the only way to rectify it, I think, is to make my life one that it worthwhile not only for myself but for my child. 1 have never had a family or home life, and for this reason the baby means a lot to me. Friends have advised me to give him Up for adoption, but I'm hesita.ting to do this because if there is any chance nr way at all for me to keep him, I want to. Do you suppose there is any man who would want lo marry me now that I have the baby? This is what I hope I can achieve because I do so want a home. Occasionally I have a date, but none of the men know about the baby. If one should become serious and want to marry me, should I tell him? I certainly am not going to marry anyone for convenience--I would have to love him completely. This would be especially important in my case since the past opens so many possibilities for future quarrels ana recriminations. T. J. J. Answer: Your fine letter, which I have somewhat abbreviated, indicates very clearly your repentance over past mistakes and a firm resolution to live a good life n the future. You havt made a wise and courageous decision in seeping your baby; you will be amply repaid for it. You are very young and, since you have no family to guide you, ; your own standards must be kept very high to prevent another mistake in your life. There will be so many lonely moments, many heartsick ones, but you will always have the comfort of your small son and, in time, perhaps you will have the home you long for. Many, many girls in situations yours have made, happy marriages, and there is no reason to doubt that you may be able to, also. Obviously, and as you already realize, you would need a much firmer foundation than would be necessary under ordinary circumstances. A man who will overlook your one mistake and assume the responsibility of bringing up your son needs a more than ample supply of charity, kindness, generosity and consideration. There is no repson why you should announce to every man who takes you out that you have a child, but certainly, if you see signs of approaching seriousness or the intentions of one of them, he must be told. This will not be an easy task for you, since it will mean no more, dates from almost all men. However, you can always CONTINUED ON PAGB FTV« Good to Eat Answer to Prevtoua PuzzM uum J · HIJCJC BOK1ZONTAL YIKTICAL . 1 Split soup 4 Greek letter t pudding 12 High mountain 13 Dry 14 Subterfuge 15 Knock It Easy jobs ISfots IPeel 2 Dash 3 Canape 4 Fundamental 5 Great Lake 6 Christmas tree decoration 7 Fruit drink S Dried plum (Entice auara *,tjnt.u u raHimn^ Fiur iani j ju HdLiri . r-j[»» j uumi i unrjt*«i ir.u-jr i anu uuuinur ir jtjHCiu-ik.f 11 - nna MI jin I uiiui 1 1-- ' 20 Ones of a kindlO Employer 11 Twitching 11 Disorder 17 Pamper IB Italian city U Comfort I'iSeed vessel 111 Shade treet 27 Chemical engineer (ab.) 10 Peril M Satan 34 Thoroughfare 11 Earache M Weight uted in India IT Small dtvllt II Masculine 40 Growl 41 Pose 41 Cavalry sword vtr.) jU Mineral used In fertllbtrs 41 Monotonous round II Worthiest table scrap M Minced oath M Bewildered 14 Girl's nkkaasM 51 Corn -M Peruse 17 Water Ing ·lae* 25 Rant 28 Dropsy 27 Quotations 21 Salute . 29 Otherwise 31 Spoiled . . 33Hettrict 23 Early church 31 Laud desks 40 Rate 24 Exclamations 41 Dinner course » Detaagt,' (myth) 44 Green vegetable 44 entreaty 47 Snare-, teVoinaatl 1 a it » H· V H k ii A K at ^ l U 11 ^ i ii W K ri ^ N · 1 ll It ^ 1 9 '$,. m M w 11 I n ^ fffi V J jjjgd U R ,. ^ HI % · 1 $, t i B i^ n . , H H M I H w IT j
