BOYLE NEW YORK I* — Uncle Sam's most neglected nephew today is the white collar man. : In the midst of a still booming national propserity that is either postwar or pre-war (or perhaps both) the fellow in the frayed White collar is getting mostly crumbs.

The fig- 'urcs who that, in terms of income I'ire, he is falling behind. This has brought a decline in the ^prestige of the white collar class, f which formerly prided itself on the [fact that it rubbed up against wealth but now is learning to its vast sorrow that very little of that jwealth rubs off on it. The skilled worker a generation fco often disliked the white collar [man and regarded him as a snob. jNow he feels the gent with the pale throat harness is not only a snob — but a poor snob at that, and envies him not at all. He rather feels sorry for him. The social gulf that difference in attire once made between them has been more than wiped out by 'i the difference in pay, which now gsharpley favors the guy in the styl- 'sh blue overalls The plumber, the bricklayer, the | machinist used to be a renter and a lunchbox carrier. Today he owns his own home, his own car, and lunches in a restaurant whenever 'jthe mood seizes him. Who now jgoes to his job toting a cheese jsandwich and an apple in a paper jljbag? Thousands and thousands of white collar workers. And they go home to a small parlor, bedroom and kitchenette. Who can better, afford to take his missus out now and then for a little night clubbing? The guy in the overalls. But after he dolls up for the evening you can't tell him from a millionaire. The office clerk, bookkepper, or bank teller, however, not only lacks the folding green to pick up a night club tab. He has to stay home so his shirt is still clean enough to wear an other day. A cab driver I rode with the 'ther day summed up the prob- |jlem of the white collar worker: "I worked in an office for years and finally got up to $60 a week. But my wife and I and the kid were starving on that. Then I took to hacking. Now I get fresh air and feel healthier. I can get by on the job with a sports shirt and an old pair ot slacks. I work long- jer hours, but it's a bad week I [[don't bring home $85 or better. "I say to hell with white collar Jobs. I'd rather support my wife lithan a laundry." Wayne refusal Morse Quits like But Not .theGOP NEW YORK UP)— Sen. •Morse (R-Ore.) says his Ito campaign for Gen. Dwight D. rEisenhower for president does not [•mean he is bolting the GOP. I Morse, in his speech yesterday •before the AFL convention, was i! critical of Sen. Robert A. Taft of [Ohio —whom he termed a "sub- Istitute quarterback" leading the 70P "toward a defeat." Later, at a news conference, IMorse said he was "taking a stroll [,ES of now" but added: "I'm supporting him (Eisenhow- |er) as of now, to the extent [that I have expressed it [convention speech." One bolts a party when he campaigns for the opposition, Morse [said, and to "take .a walk" simply [means one does not campaign for [his own party candidates. On that same theme, in his AFL Bddress, Morse said: "The junior senator from Ore [gon never intends to walk out on in the the field in Hammons Stadium at 8 o'clock. It will be the first outing of the season for the visitors who have beaten the Bobcats two years in a row.

Crews KiwanisCalf Project Aids Club Youths In 1047 the Hope Kiwanis Club under the leadership of the agriculture committee, began what is known as the Jersey call project. Two registered Jersey heifers were purchased and given away to FFA and 4-H Club boys that year. One was awarded to James Hutson and the other to Walker Formby. The project has continued since that time with James Toner, a 4-H Club boy of Columbus, being awarded a heifer in 1948. Kenneth Dale Sinyard of Spring Hill and Burrel Joe Smittle of Patmos were both awarded a heifer in 1940. Then in 1950 one was awarded to Henry Bowden of the Hope FFA chapter. In 1951 two calves were awarded, one to Marshall Rowe Jr., of Washington, and one to Joe Mitchell England of the Shover Springs community. The boys receiving these heifers are required to have a pasture and barn sufficient to care for the calves. He must agree to breed this calf to a registered Jersey sire, to show the calf and its off- springs, if any. at the Livestock Show each year, keep a record and make a report in person to the donor of the calves annually.' He must keep the calf and donate the first female offspring back to the donor, after which time the donor has no further claim to the original animal or its offsprings. The first female offspring turned back to the Kiwanis Club will be given to other boys according to the rules set up by the club. There is one Jersey heUer to be awarded a 4-H or FFA boy eligible to participate in the drawing next Thursday afternoon. Sept. 25 at 1:30 o'clock. The Hempstead County Farm Agent and vocational agriculture teachers are requested to select not more than one boy from each 4-H Club or FFA chapter and have him on hand for the drawing. Any further information desired regarding the eligibility to receive one of these calves can be obtained by contacting E. R. Brown- of the Hope Kiwanis Club. The rules of taking care and showing thest by irrigation supplied to farms in narrow valleys along the rivers. After spending this wr/jk with County Agent Oliver L. Adams, Mr. Rivarola will go to Russell- villc and Fayctteville (or a similar period of time. He wll then spend a week each in New Mexico, California, and Puerto Rico. Powerful New Missiles Soon to Be Ready By HENBERT FOSTER WASHINGTON, (UP)— The guided missiles launched by the Navy against North Korean targets are model T versions compared with the sleek, powerful new model which soon will be ready, reliable sources said today. The new missiles, ncaring the production stage, would be "truly guided" aerial weapons, these experts said, and some of them would be capable of carrying atomic warheads. Scientists who have been work ing on development of push-button weapons tended to belittle the signi ficance of the navy's use of remotely controlled fighter pianos. Rear Adm. John H. Sides, director of the Navy's guided missiles division, called the attacks by the World W,ar II Grumman Hellcats, equipped..with radio controls and television eyes, "one of the very first tries at a primitive method of opeation." ' Sides indirectly cast some cold water on speculation that the unmanned planes plunging into Com munist targets ushered in a new era of push button warfare. As he pointed out at a news conference yesterday, the Navy has been using the obsolete Hellcats as pilotless, radio-controlled "drone" planes for several years as gunnery targets. About the only thing new was installation of a television camera so the control pilot, miles away in a guide plane, could see where the "Kamikaze" was going and direct it smack onto the target. Sides indicated, however, that television guidance of planes was a step ahead in clearing up the troublesome problem of pinpointing guided missiles on targets. But if the pilotless Hellcat is "primitive," Sides left no doubt that all the armed services are readying more up to date missiles to be used against ground or air targets. Sides said the U. S. guided missile program is "coming along nicely. showing promising re- Lincoln's republicanism. He only calves will be explained again on pleads with his party to return to j Thursday afternooa at the time I the republicanism of Lincoln. On Eisenhower's chances in No- jvember, Morse told newsmen: "as I Of now, I think he is ahead." Morse said he still probably will ! vote for Eisenhower.

Keystone lodge Host to Meeting Last week Keystone Lodge No. 43, F&AM, observed Prince Hall Day along with eight other lodges of this section. Principal speakers were L. W. Williamson. A. Tate. and T. A. Hamilton. Purpose of the meeting was to raise funds to be given to the Polio Foundation. Lodges taking suits." While the Navy's missiles, at least, are not yet in full pro' duction, he said "many advanced types" are under development. Sides added 9 warning against underestimating Russia's capacity to produce guided missiles. Soviet scientists have the necessary scientists who developed the Nazi V-l and V-2 missiles during World War II. The Navy has announced devel opment of at least 11 guided missiles ol various typos since World War II. Some were strictly for research, and some, like the loon which was the American version of the German V-l buzz bomb, are now obsolete. Most would be armed with high explosives, as in artillery shells. Guided missile development is one of the military's tighest sec rets, but the Navy is known to have contracted for missile production at a $50,000,000 consolidated Vultee plant at Pomona, Cal., pnd another large plant at Bristol, Tenn. These, plants are under construction, and Sides indicated they have not yet started producing.

Ike Defends Honesty Nixon; State Democrats Hope to Avert Discord Sparkman and Newsmen See Ike as Winner at This Stage By DOUGLAS B. CORNELL NEW YORK l/I'l — Newspaper editors and political writers over the country consider R c p u bllcan Dwight D. Eisenhower the probable winner over Democrat Adlai E. Stevenson — it the presidential election were run off today. But many newsmen who took Hate Drive Intensified in Russia BERLIN, (UP) — George F. Kennan, United States ambassador hate-America campaign of the to Moscow, said today that the Kremlin has become "serious." Western diplomats in the Soviet .Russian capital now live in "complete isolation," Kennan said on his arrival here on his way to at tend a United States diplomatic conference in London. Kennan warned the western world it can put no faith in statements by Russians that they de sire to improve relations until they halt their anti-American campaign Despite a formal protest he made, there has been no relaxation, he said. He told correspondents the Mo= cow atmosphere is "Icy cold." He said not even his servants or guides are permitted to talk to him except on business matters. No Russian on the streets will talk to him, he said. To increase the isolation of the diplomats, Kennan said, the Rus sians give "inaccurate" informa tion about the areas outside Mos cow they are permitted to visit. A diplomat will be led to believe that a certain area is not, in a re stricted zone only to go there and find he is barred. In this way, he said, the Russians apparently hope to keep diplomats from travelling outside Moscow without ordering them formally to stay in the city. Kennan for years has been America's No. 1 expert on Russia. He formulated the State De partrnent's policy of the "contain ment" of communism within its present limits. His appointment lo the Moscow post was an interna tional sensation. The Russians had made it no secret they hated him. Kennan presented his credentials in May, and since then has part in a nationwide survey undertaken by The Associated Press believe large numbers of voters haven't mode up their minds. They saj^U.tp too soon ,to tell who may hit tho wire first in Nbvertjber. • Where editors say they have spotted present trends toward the GOP, the reasons they men tlon most frequently are currents ol time-for-a-change sentiment anc Eisenhower's personal popularity In state after state, newsmen be Hove'the general will make a bet tcr showing in his -first bid for an elective office than GOP Nomine? Thomas E. Dewey did four years ago. The collective opinion of editors and correspondents, brought to gother from surveys that tappcc political sentiment at the grass loots in a great majority of the nation's counties, is that Eisenhow cr would be fairly sure of 15 slates with 153 electoral votes if the vote were taken now. They believe an additional 1! states are doubtful but would be inclined at this time to go Repub lican. If Eisenhower collected al their 142 votes, his total woulr reach 295-29 more than the 266 re quired to cinch the election. Newsmen believe that Stevenson at this point, could be reasonably certain of 12 states with 121 electoral votes and that he migh pick up three doubtful ones with 49 votes, That adds up to 170 votes — 00 short of the 260 murk. Half a dozen slates with Of voles are regarded by newsmen as the fence at this time. Even i Stevenson bagged all of those, he wouldn't have enough to win on newspaper scoreboards. So, as the editors see it, Steven son will have to smash away ir the few weeks remaining before the election at states that now look safe for Eisenhower and those tha appear to be wavering toward th< general. Estimates for New England com plete the national picture in the AP survey. The composite view ol "down East" editors is that the urea will go about the sainu as ir. 1948.
