Muscatine Journal (Newspaper) - March 3, 1961, Muscatine, Iowa THE MUSCATTNE JOURNAL PreliminaryStucfas Innate Friday Mch 31961 Editorial Page Major Goals of US Peace Corps Retlectorized License Plates Offer Chance to Reduce Accidents It is calculated thatmotor vehiclelicense plateswhicli Have been reflectorized so that they glow whenilights of an approach ing vehicle strike them would cost about 25 cents a pair more than the kind now issued Thatsthe figure quoted by Carl Pesch Iowa commissioner of public safety who would like to sec allIowa motor vehicles provided with such plates in 1963 The reflectorized plates are advocated as a means of prevent ing night time accidents It seems like a small price to pay for such protection And it holds out a consider able sum in savings to motorists on the basis of testswhich have been conducted Pesch reports that in a test conducted in Polkcounty in 1959 when 60000 cars about three out of every five in the county were issued reflectorized plates showedadvantages from a safety standpoint one out of every fiveparked cars hit atnight car ried reflectorized licenses The study indicated Pesch statesthat the reflecting plates make a car three times jess likely to be hit when parked on a light ed street and nine times safer when parked on an unlighted street Had all cars in the county been provided with ing plates he calculated with the same ratio df such mishaps there would have been a saving of inaccident costs The reflecting principle has been applied to signs along many highways and toll roads to in crease visibility night It ap pears to have much to recom mend it for motor vehicle license plates New Iowa Program Aims at Bettering Standing of Judiciary Iowa voters at the next pri maryelection will pass on a new method of choosing district and supreme court judges It is a pro posal designed not only to select abler judges but to perpetuate their services on the bench The plan which embraces the best featuresof theAmerican Bar Assn formula and of indiv idual states has won approval in both branches of the Iowa legisla ture Now to become effective it must win approval in an election There will be 4he charge in some quarters that it deprives the people of the right to elect and is thus undemocratic Biit the final authority will still remainwith the people and a sim ple way is provided to end

He Will Leave FBI Job By GEORGE E 8OKOLSKy Edgar Hoover Director offoe FBI was reappolrtetl by President Kennedy artel so far as unytMie knows he intends to remain on the job However The says that some Washington insiders11 pre dict that Hoover will be out of the top FBI jobby summer direct Inquiry brought no confirmation of wich a prediction but one can always wait for a summer to come Hoover has given 40 years of his life to the FBI and expects to give more years Why Is it that the rumor is so often spread that J Edgar Hoover will resign when it Is quite well known thathe will not resign but could of coursebe dismissed by his chief the attorneygeneral WONT RISK INTEGRITY Hoover is not likely to make it easy for anyone by resigningbecause he choose to risk the integrity of the FBI by making it easy for anyone to use it politically Hie day must come when Hoover will not be able to continue In his job for such a Hmo comes to all men unless they die with tholr boots on When that day comes It would be J Edjfar Hoovers hope that his successor might be person In ttm FBI and not some politician who could use this mighty agoncy of Rovem ment to the disadvantage of the American people Whenever it has been proposed hhat the FBI be expanded into a national police force Hoover has opposed it He has also opposed amalgamating the FBI with the Secret Serv ice the Bureau of Narcotics the investigative agencies of the Immigration Service and State Department because it has always been his theory of operations that the only way to pro tect the people from a Gestapolike organiza tion Is to limit its functions AVOIDED UNDUE EXPANSION There have been times when tine FBI was so popular that Hoover could have got any measure throughCongress he avodcd expan sion beyond efficiency as he avoided becoming an independent agency outsicle the Depart ment of Justice Whereas in the past lihere havebeen di rect attacks on J Edgar Hoover the current campaign is more subtle It is devoted to atiathiasphereof imminent depar It is aman is about to die or isreallydead already It starts out with the asBumptibh that a manis too old that he oughttoretire or soonretire It is like thcpropagantla a year orsoago that Justice Felix Frankfurterwas retiring and a dumber of judges and lawyersput themselves in noticeable1 the hope tfmt the spotlight might fall on them Frankfurter fooledthem all Hejust stayedon and said nothing V R10KOVEK KXPEIUENpE RECALLED RickoverAll sorts of were devised to days the NavyIt wasnot planned for him to resign rather he was to be passed over so that he would no longer be thereIt plan But Congresstook a handat that one The schemefellshort of its purpose and the UnitedStates hasiteBeetof atomic submarines which it was expected that Rickover would not succeed in building So it is now with J Edgar Hoover There are some who are anxious for him to retire and tohave some outsider perhaps someone whoso green file Would make startling reading chosen in his place They spread this report that he is on bad terms with Robert Kennedy the attorneygeneral who Is Hoov ers chief Robert Kennedy Is an asrute man who hashadlongservice In the Investigative functions of Congress He knew his way around the FBI before he became attorneygeneralThusfar he has avoided any political mistakes or getting in volved in a controversy with Congress It is not likely thathcwUl fall lorthe and plotting wlvoh always jgo on in Washing lon as they do in world capital For to clismiss J Edgar Hoover would start such a fracas as no one nota person with political ambitionsand political sense Those who hopefully speculate on the prospect of Hoovers resignation have Ifear been talk ing to the wrong Insiders But then that is so generally truein any capital particularlyWashington where the real insiricrs are those who work on the job rather than at acocktail party Copyright THE MUSCATINE A LEE NEWSPAPER HAROLD L NELSON WALTER RUSSELL Editor ROBERT BAUER

the handsnot only of the federal government but also and even in the hands of state and municipal governments The national government can do a greatideal by tax revision ondepreciation allowances which would enable businesses large and small toinvest more money in plant improvement and newprocesses But probably the greatest po tential market for goods and services to be opened inAmeri ca lies in theareaofurbanre nabilitation The federalgov ernment can act to some extent as a catalyst and stimulator in this process but by far the greater role in improvement of cities has to be played by stats arid local governments and by private Investment land industry Science Monitor 75 Years Ago Mr J Jellcy ot Wilton has a bull pun what is a bull pup It keeps P a jjood record Thrash es about a
