Becoming Soft pVEN as I sat in the Olympics Stadium at Melbourne last November and watched our American youngsters win most of the track and field events I was seized by an uncomfortable feel ing I should have been ecstatical ly happy but I wasnt It was too obvious to be missed that American victories were coming in competition which called for effort of relatively short duration the sprints rather than the distance races basketball rather than cycling the high jump rather than water polo or gymnastics Could it be I kept asking myself that our athletes are prepared only for the short haul When I left Melbourne at the conclusion of the track and fielc events America had wha seemed to be a safe margin over Russia on gold medals and on points But by the time I came to rest in India a week or so later the Russians had chippec away at thisjnargin in the fields of7 competition which call for stamina rather than brillianc and we were in second place Must Change Standards Its so clear as not to be argu able that if in Olympics game of the future we wish to hold on own with the Communists wer going to have to attach some im portance to such unspectacula activities as fencing gymnastics at tnem cycling and other events based on patience and endurance i Here let me explain that I do not regard this Olympics matter as highly important There is of course no officially recognized standard for grading the partici pating nations Traditionally the games have been designed to glorify the individual athlete not the nation WILLIAM GIRARD Girard in Plea of Innocent MAEBASHI Japan Girard Monday denied Jap nese charges that he lured voman brass scavenger to he death on a US firing range Japanese prosecutors entered new accusation that the Arm specialist from Ottawa 111 sho at four other Japanese before a empty cartridge case fired froi lis grenade launcher killed Mrs Naka Sakai Jan 30 The facts in the indictment are not correct the 22yearold GI told the three blackrobed judges as his trial on a manslaughter charge opened in the Japanese District Court here In a brief statement Girard told the court Mrs Sakais death was an accident as far as Im con Sarsfield Confirms

decision on whether to call a special session of the Legislature Loveless told his news confer ence that he still has not decided whether to summon the Legisla tors to a special session but indi cated he would make his decision within the next couple of weeks Plans Conferences I want to visit this week with various legislators on both sides of the political fence Loveless said About the only thing certain VOTE TUESDAY Kohler Is Favored to Top Proxmire Dem OS Override Southern at the present time is that the special session if it is called will not be in September I havent as of this moment ruled out the pos sibility of a special session this tall but I want to give at leas 30 days advance notice and there fore September would be too soon The governor said factors in hi decision would be

Sainsbury is shown in a sleeping bag and strapped to the stretcher Man at left is unidentified Sainsbury fell into a crevasse and was ma rooned for 18 hours before his rescue Except that the Kremlin is bent on demonstrating a superi ority over the free world asa means of impressing the socalled neutral nations I wouldnt even give the subject a second thought Id laugh it off as kid stuff But there is a related question which has to be recognized as desperately important It has to do with whether American youth all American youth not just our athletes are physically fit Our boys and girls are definitely taller and heavier than their par ents Are they also softer Eisenhower Worried Too I am by no means alone in my concern over this question Not so long ago President Eisenhower sat in on a White House confer ence at which he was told that dismissed the soldiers chief anese attorney Itsuro Hayashi re newed the claim that Girard was carrying out his official duty and therefore is not subject to Japa nese jurisdiction The argument originally had set off considerable congressional and press criticism in the United States of the Armys decision to let Japan try Girard The US Supreme Court finally upheld the Army action ruling that a Japa nese trial not violate the soldiers constitutional rights Presiding Judge Yuzo Kawachi propriation measures he last June and whether to as more money for various socia welfare programs Bills Vetoed After the 1957 session Loveles vetoed the Legislatures major revenue bill in order to let the Iowa sales tax rate fall from 2Va to 2 per cent To assure a safe operating balance he also vetoed bills providing for about 16 mil lion dollars worth of new build ings and other capital improve ments at state institutions Loveless said at that time that he planned to call a special ses sion this fall to give the Legisla ture a chance to reenact neces sary capital improvements Since then however he has shown some indecision about whether to Mason Cityan Held for Stealing Horses said he would not rule on the follow through with special ses jurisdiction issue until all the evi dence in the case is heard and the final decision is given This is expected to be in late October or November Hayashi said this was agreeable to him Long Recess In accordance with the Japa nese custom of extended recesses between sessions the trial was adjourned after Mondays hear ing until Sept 6 It will move then in an identical American school physical children test aged 6 to 16 compared unbelievably badly in comparison with Euro peans of like age Whereas less than one out of 10 European children failed to pass the test close to 60 per cent of the American youngsters fell down on it At the conclusion of the con ference in question the President told those present that he had been shocked by the dis closures At every opportunity since that time Mr Eisenhower has gone out of his way to lec ture youthful visitors at the White House about the importance of physical fitness So that I wont be painting an unduly black picture however I should point out that there is a pronounced difference of opinion among authorities on the extent of our youthful flabbiness Some experts vigorously attack the tests that made Anicrican boy and girls look so bad By chang ing thecharacter of the exercis es they maintain the situation could be reversed with the Euro pean youngsters not the Ameri cans looking bad Authorities Disagree The President in his strong feelings on the subject of physi cal fitness is undoubtedly hark ing back to two world wars when he saw many youths sent into trenches and foxholes before CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 sion plans Sarsfields analysis of the fiscal picture confirmed the estimates made at the time of the gov ernors vetoes He estimated the state general fund would receive n the next biennium approxi mately a year and that expenditures would run slightly over 143 million dollars a year General Fund Sarsfield said
