Yuma Daily Sun, The (Newspaper) - April 22, 1960, Yuma, Arizona 1 By JONES OSBORN Revenge is sweet. I've been waiting for it a long, long time. And I know a lot of other news- men who will smile over this one, too. Reporters, being human, make their share of errors, despite ev- ery effort. But they're not ALWAYS wrong. Frequently, a person in the news pops off about something. Then later, when the storm blows up over his remarks, he COULD say: "I wish I hadn't said that. Aft- er further consideration I'd like to make a different statement." But he doesn't. Instead, says: he "I was misquoted." Well, the other day that old po- litical war horse, Harry Truman, popped off in his usual manner. He was holding a news confer- ence. The subject under discussion was the student sit-downs in the South, to end segregation of pub- lic eating facilities. "I don't think they're all stu- said Truman. "I think this was all engineered by the commu- nists." The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People jumped on his remark. They de- manded an apology. And so when reporters asked Truman about his remark, he said: "I was misquoted and I have r.o further comment." But for once the reporters had their proof. Someone had tape-re- corded Harry's speech and the tape' showed that he said exactly what the reporters said he had. It couldn't have happened to a more deserving guy. Helm To Quit As State YD President Bill Helm, Yuma County Dem- ocratic leader, announced today that'he planned to resign as state president of the Young Democrats during the convention in Tucson this 'Weekend. Helm said that since he would be a candidate for re-election county attorney and was also serv- ing as chairman of the Yuma County Democratic Central Com- mittee, that he should ask the state YD convention to elect someone else. Elected in 1958 for a two-year term, Helm's presidency was con- tinued for a third year in 1959 so that the elections would fall on odd numbered years. Others attending the convention will be Mrs. Helm, James Tegart Yuma Young Demo president; Ar- mida Rodriguez, Yuma YD secre- tary-treasurer and C. R. (Ron) McKelvey. Principal speaker at the convention, set for the Santa Rita Hotel, will be Franklin D.

Yuma Indians announc- ed today that the reservation would assume a "closed" policy immedi- ately. Plans call for the erecting of toll stations on private roads through the reservation. The dis- puted "Island" area is included in the new policy since it is claim- ed by the Tribe. A public meeting has been called for 1 p.m. Satur- day to explain the new policy. The following is the text of the news release given to The Sun by Tribal leaders: "The Fort Yuma Reservation is the only one in California that has not enforced strict trespassing laws. Many non-Indians have taken advantage of this hospitality and have taken up residence in the Reservation without first obtain- ing a lease or permit. Only on Highways "Under the new policy non- Indians will be obliged to cross the reservation only on the public highways. All private roads are now closed except to Indians of the reservation and those to whom they lease. "This policy applies also to the acres of unalloled Tribal lands. It is unlawful lo cross on to or off the reservation at any place except designated roads through designated toll stations.
