Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - May 18, 1960, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE VOL 98 The Newspaper That Makes All North lowans Neighbors Associated Press and United Press International Fun Lease Wires MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY MAY 18 1960 t ic Copy Paper of ton Ora NO m lira renews co Decline of the rickshaw By GENE GLEASON New York Herald Tribune News Service HONG KONG One of the sillier sights of Hong Kongs many splendoredstreets is an American riding around in a rickshaw He looks and feels like a rube quite probably ashamed of himself for permit ting another human being to pul him through the streets and un questionably frightened by the heavy motor traffic roaring past his frail conveyance Europeans particularly the Russians and Asiatics sit their rickshaw with a firm imperial seat carrying a suitcase across their knees as if they were bear ing the crown jewels to the cor onation But men of this regal stripe are growing scarce and so are the rickshaws HONG KONG still has about 850 licensed rickshaws but the number has declined in recent years and wellinformed guides will tell you that hardly 200 of them are in daily use in the busy commercial centers of Victoria City and Kowloon On a dozen street corners you will see 8 or 10 standing vacant in a com pact line while their drivers sig nal hopefully for prospective passengers But the takers are few Humanitarian considerations and motorized competition have combined to put the crusher on the rickshaw In Hong Kong the rickshaw driver collects an es tablished rate of nine cents for each five minutes of rocky dog trotting progress and more if you dont clock him careful ly His top speed on level pave ment is about seven miles an hour Every other form of public transportation is cheaper and faster leaving the rickshaw boy with little more than a weary set of hauling muscles and a purely picturesque occupation FOR A VEHICLE often con sidered symbolic of the Orient the rickshaw and its Japanese cousin the jinriksha has had some strangely Western origins Although certain 17th century Japanese drawings picture a somewhat similar gocart most

you like Ike now is the time to tell him so No man ever needed conso lation and sympathy more than does the old soldier who dreamed of becoming the president of peace and in two terrible days here watched his dream dissolve in the acid of Russian invective and insult Premier Khrushchevs blister ing attack on Ike Wednesday was an alltime low in diplo macy Politics are supposed to stop at the oceans edges so for get for the moment about pre cincts and primaries Presi dent Eisenhower is here as the representative of all the Amer ican people young and old right wing and left wing Democrats and Republicans Back through history heads of governments have been sub jected to some infuriating and humiliating treatment as they went about the business of their nations Hitler dished it out roughly to Neville Cham berlain in the days of ap peasement and Stalin was ready to tie into any states man at any time But it is the considered judgement of the American correspondents here that no president of the United States has ever had to endure what Eisenhower has taken here from Nikita Khrushchev They came face to face only the opening session of the summit and here is what happened Khrushshev did not offer to shake hands with Eisenhower either on arrival or departure He withdrew his invitation for Ike to visit Russia He said he would have no dealings with a nation or its president who made treach ery the basis of its relations with the Soviet Union Khrushchev did not do these things in a small room with a few people He did it before the heads of government of two other nations and their foreign ministers He made sure his remarks got world wide attention by releasing his speech to the world press as fast as possible Back in his Army days Ike had the reputation of being a man with a fairly fast temper Nobody has seen him lose it here in Paris He often has said he would go anywhere at any time in the cause of peace and he went the full distance in the past two days News conference re as S FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES news conference leld by Soviet Premier Khrush chev Wednesday was like some hing out of a reporters night mare Veteran international journal sts who have seen news confer ences in just about every pos sible language and setting re garded Khrushchevs session vith the world press as unpre Khrushchevs voice was on the raucous side all the time and frequently he shouted in anger and shook his fists Like many a heckled performer he was rattled enough to fight back Riff raff he said of the booers German riff raff he emphasized I have already

expected it to break outinto a riot Some European a few in their seats and shook their fists and shouted at the speaker and he shouted right back Khrushchevs mood changed constantly From outright anger he would turn to wry sarcasm then suddenly with some remark he would smile Hed stand bored during a translation then seconds later be pounding a table in front of him and shout ing almost incoherently Near the end the lights sud denly went out temporarily and the loudspeakers went dead My God cracked one Amer ican reporter Now hes blown the gasket Maryland goes for Kennedy BALTIMORE m

threw the fortunes of the rickshaw driver into a permanent downhill slide THE INTRODUCTION of mo torized rickshaws and three wheeled pedal propelled cabs dealt severe competitive blows to the rickshaw Countries which once accepted them began to regard them as degrading and inhumane or an obstacle to mo tor cars The Philippine Repub lie banned them in 1949 Saigon ruled them out of hounds in 1946 and Singapore did the same in 1947 which once had 15000 rickshaws banned them this year Shang hai where 10000 rickshaws op crated outlawed them in 1956 All of Tokyos 10000 jinrikshas have vanished from
