Preu Cnlted Inttrflitlontl Full Wiret MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY JULY 6 1961 To Copy Thls Paper Consists of Two SectionsSection No 3t Tribute to a great author Hemingway feared death By JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON Hem ingways people confronted death as something not to be postponed as Hector in Homers Iliad did when he stopped running to face Achilles armed but without hope Hemingway said 26 years ago long before illness overtook him I must write because if I do not write a certain amount I do not enjoy the rest of my life It is a reasonable guess the prospect of years of invalidism or at least marginal vitality took the joy out of life for him This may be too simple for future analysts seeking the mean ing of the shotgun blast which killed him last Sunday You can almost read them now THAT HIS concern with death which dominated all he wrote meant he was obsessed with fear of it and that he sought to buy time through the years by march ing character after character to inevitable doom as a substitute for himself The literary pigeonfanciers who like cooing or a message mauled him But he was no soothsayer Maxwell Geisrnar once wrate that Hemingways people act as if thought is unthinkable This was true He was an artist writ ing about the muscles of the heart not the capillaries of the brain The muscles got tired as he grew older His best work was his early work the short stories The Sun Also Rises A Fare well to Arms some parts of Death in the Afternoon some parts of To Have and Have Not IT WAS downhill after thatal though for him was up on the mountain for most of his con if he had listened too much to the critics who wanted a message who said he had no social consciousness In those early days he showed none of it Why should he have He was an artist writing about people in trouble as he saw them without moral judgments He had one measuring rod to write truly It was his own word But no one can ever really uni feel is a bet ter Hemingway really meant to American Literature un less he was alive and young in those middle 1920s when Heming ways work began The woods were full of literary frauds and secondraters who played it cute and safe wrote strictly for bucks suffered from Victorian anemia or pumped out sexshockers which disappeared in the garbage can THERE WERE some honest men writing like Theodore Dreis er and Anderson who tried to cut new roads with stor ies about the world as they saw it themselves but Dreiser was Photofax PLAN TO WED Geordie Hormel son of the late Jay C Hormel of George A Hormel Co con firmed that he and Annie Farge

Kim Wadsworth in Las Vegas in 1957 but divorce ended the union last April clumsy and Anderson was senti mental Then Hemingway who used his ears to listen and not to keep his hat off his chin broke through to write about talk as its spoken and life as it is He wrote to write and not for money He made no concessions He did it with enormous self discipline and economy in lan guage and emotion He created a yardstick by which those com ing after him had to be mea Womans car hits train operated by her husband SALEM Va WThe No 51 Norfolk and Western freight train smashed into a car Wed nesday

acquaintance of Nikita Khrush chev is being described in the Soviet press as a man who doesnt pay his hired hands very much And some of his political ideas were called somewhat naive This portrait of Garst was written for the official news paper Rural Life by A Roman ov cue of the Soviet journalists who recently toured the United States at the invitation of the American Society of Newspaper Editors After a visit to the Garst farm Romanov wrote On his 5000 acres of land he employs 20 men who know well how to handle farm ma chinery and are real masters in their trade He docs not pay them much an hour on weekdays and on Sundays In this respect ho acts like a man who knows jwell the value of money and takes good care to have every dollar bring him a clear profit of two Besides a high price is not set in the United States on the labor of those who produce wealth for others Romanov approvingly noted that Garst called the arms race a world craze but Romanov added Some of his views as for example the idea of divid ing the world into literate and illiterate rang somewhat naive And when it came to explain ing why a corn farmer has a swimming pool on his farm Romanov did it by quoting Garst to this effect Do you think I have a swim ming pool in my garden be cause I am a capitalist I have this pool because I feed the corn cobs to the cattle and do not throw them away or burn them like others do Describing the inside of Garsts house Romanov wrote The walls inside the cottage as I remember them were light green the carpet green the low armchair in which Garst sat was upholstered in green loo In fact the green seemed to absorb the strong odor of ma nure carried in from the cattle enclosures The area around Garsts farm was depicted in a gloomy fash ion Romanov said he was able to view it when Garst took the Russians to see land that was lying idle because the US gov ernment was paying to have it idle On our way wrote Roman ov we passed empty little farm homes with broken win dow panes and doors swinging in the wind The homes had been abandoned by their own ers We wondered Where were those farmers now whom the land no longer feeds Some may have turned into homeless tramps others if lucky got jobs in town In Coon Rapids Garst called Romanov a threehour expert He recalled that Romanov vis ited the farm with a group of other people last May 4 He stayed about three hours said Garst then went home and wrote an article about our farming operations That would be like me going to the Soviet Union staying three hours and writing all about Russia full of inaccuracies He said the Soviet newsmen stopped at the farm on a Sun day during cornplanting time Wehad been rained out for a week before and decided to work that day Garst said Most of the employes he saw were day laborers which we use occasionally throughout the year Most of our employes are permanent yearround men liv ing in nearby farm homes Garst said Romanov was par ticularly inaccurate about the amount of land he actually owns He not only grouped my land but also land owned by my sons and some of the farm lands I manage for others said Garst He did not reveal however to how much land he does claim title Regarding Romanovs descrip tion of the interior of the Garst home Garst said That doesnt bother me But it probably will make my wife a little angry
