EDITION VOL LXIII Associated Press and United Press Full Wires Seven Cents Copy MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY JANUARY 9 1957 Eden Resigns as Action on MidEast Resolution Slowed by New Testimony This Paper ol Two SectionsSection No 7t Minister r The World Around Us i Japanese Are Hated in Java Number 45 By W EARL HALL Java The Jap anese were here only about four years but they left an in delible impression Theyre deep ly hated as individuals and as a nation This is one of facts to become apparent to you as you settle down on this island roughly the size of Iowa but home for almost 60 million hu man beings Just about ev you meet here can point to some body close o W EARL HALLkin who wa either shot by the Japanese in vaders as a spy or taken away to a concentration camp never to be seen again In the case of Capt Soediono Soeriantoro a cleancut young Indonesian army captain who sa witiime on a Garuda plane from Bali it was an uncle He wa killed as a reprisal measure for some sabotage in the construe tion of a railroad designed by the Japanese to latch on to Javas limited coal supply Underground Movement In the case of Thung Tian Tjoen an Indonesian of Chinese extraction Ive just met in the fabulous botanical gardens at Bogor a city of or so to the south of here it was an uncle and a nephew They were sus pected of belonging to the under ground Capt Soeriantoro who knows and likes America from having trained for a year at our Forl Benning got even with the Japa nese in an appropriate way He started his military training as a home guard under the Japanese and ended up helping to run down the last one on the islands shortly after the armistice in August 1945 The Dutch who for a couple of centuries or so in the long history of this mile long chain of Pacific islands were masters of the Indonesians are not universally popular That ii another fact which impresses it self on you soon after your ar rival here NotHated But theres a marked differ ence in the islanders attitude toward the Hollanders who used to rule over them and the Jap anese whom they greeted as lib erators when they took over co incidental with our own Pearl Harbor They are not hated cer tainly not as individual human beings That cannot be said of the Japs Even those most outspoken against colonialism anywhere in the world have been fair enough to admit to me that on the whole Java Sumatra and all the Indo nesian islands under the Dutch flag had an effective administra tion Governmental services were generally good and graft was at a minimum theyll tell you Common Criticism Their commonest criticism is that the Dutch rulers were too insistent on retaining within themselves all the powers of gov ernment Little or none was del egated to those of Indonesian stock This its more than hinted was part of a studied plan with a specific purpose It wasnt until the Japs came along and out of necessity began delegating authority to the Indo nesians that the islanders could start preparing themselves to take over the reins of govern ment But dont for a minute as sume that the Japs are given any credit for this They were hated when they were here and theyrcj despised in memory

Tuesday that the ad ministration does not plan to spell out publicly just which countries would come under the resolution Representatives Zablocki D Wis and Vorys ROhio said the two witnesses defined

MOINES unrelia ble IowaNebraska boundary is still a source of worry and the State Conservation Commission says it will ask the Legislature to seek a floating line to di vide the two states The center of the main channel of the Missouri River would be the border at all times and when the course of the river changes the boundary would change under the latest proposal The town of Carter Lake would re main a part of Iowa even though it is on the Nebraska side of the river To achieve such a boundary would require action by the Iowa and Nebraska legislatures and approval by Congress We believe such boundary legislation would be Bruce Stiles state conservation director said Wednesday Purpose of an elastic boundary would be to minimize land title and tax problems caused by the shifting channel of the stream The two states approved a boundary pact in 1943 in an ef fort to permanently settle the boundary problem It was be lieved then that channel stabiliza tion work by the Army engineers and upstream dams would resul in a static boundary Since 1943 however a total of 27 miles of the stabilized channel as visualized in 1943 are entirely in Nebraska between Sioux City and Omaha and for 13 miles the river is entirely inside Iowa ac cording to Charles Sayre the commissions survey chief The river cannot be controlled Sayre said The soil is loess which just isnt Survey maps have been pre pared covering the rivers course between Sioux City and Omaha Similar maps will be made on the situation from Council Bluff south Under the floating boundary proposal of the Iowa commission ownership of the land would re main stable when the channe shifts but tax and other state jurisdiction would change when ever the channel did What everyone needs is z visible state Stiles said There isnt such a bonn dary The survey maps indicate that as much as two sections of land have shifted from one side of the stream to the other since the 1943 agreement was made County officials are in a tax muddle up and down the Sayre said The survey maps indicate that among sizable land areas which would probably be affected by a floating border are the Tieville Bend and Middle Decatur Bend west of Onawa Soldier
