Ada Evening News, The (Newspaper) - April 1, 1962, Ada, Oklahoma 'Missionary' For America Speaks At Rotary District Meet By ERNEST THOMPSON A missionary visited Ada Satur- .day. Not the "regular" type of mis- sionary, but a missionary just the same. His name is Walter H. Judd. He's a Republican member of Congress from Minnesota. He spoke to more than 500 dele- gates to the district (577) meet; ing of Rotary International at East Central. His message: a forceful foreign policy with the United States seizing the' initiative from Soviet Russia and the Communist bloc. Expert Judd is one of America's fore- most experts on foreign- policy and the general topic of his ad- dress was "How do we stand now on foreign His points were few, but salient. (1) We have reached an era in history where the world is becom- ing disenchanted with Communism as an answer to its problems and is turning to the American alter- native. (2) ,At this crucial juncture, the United States is slowly, but sure ly, abandoning its own program and furnishing no leadership. Judd made an impassioned plea for Americans to recognize the Communist menace for what it is a world revolutionist move- ment with missionary zeal. Party Pariah He furnished ample evidence .for his reputation as the pariah .of the Republican party by de- nouncing timorous approaches to foreign policy in both G. (X P. and Democratic .administrations. And. finally, he provided an al- ternative. "We are at a unique lime in he began.. "We are on the verge of an era when man will begin to free himself of hun- ger, toil, disease and lack of communication. But, the whole thing is now threatened''by.; a cruel, calculating, zealous enemy from without and an equally dan- gerous apathy within." Judd divided the 'world -into "thirds" one-third Com- munist, or tried- and-proven governmental-systems and one-third na- tions who. have recently gained self-government. Unchanging "Communism is the same yes- terday, today and he declared. "We have attempted 'to cajole, to placate, to compromise with Communism in order to get it to abandon its plans for world domination..' We have failed mis- erably. There is no evidence that they will ever be deterred from their ultimate goal. When the Communists loose their colonies in eastern Europe when Mr. Gromyko gets up at Geneva and announces to the world that Rus- sia has decided to abandon its goal of world domination then, and only then, will we have some evidence of Communism's desire for peace." Judd was emphatic in identify- ing Communism as a world move- ment. "Communism is a world .pro- gram and it requires' world con- ie said: "These are pas: sionate missionaries we are deal- ing with.

Republican congressman (who is also a. physician) decried the American emphasis on, "talk- ing" instead "of "Some people say we--have nothing to lose by he recalled. "That is not true. While NASA Official Says U.S. Leads In Many Space Achievements A spokesman for the National Aeronautics and Space told Rotarians assembled here Satur- day afternoon for a district convention that the United States is ahead of Russia in some areas of its space pro- gram. Hiram R. Haggett, traveling NASA speaker, also showed films taken inside the space capsule during John Glenn's recent orbital flight, and a series of slides depicting artists' conceptions of future space vehicles. Haggett noted that while Russia has claimed many "firsts" in its space efforts, the U. S. is far ahead in total number of satellites launched, by a score of 69 to 16. Of said, the U. S. has recovered 13, Russia 5. :i'And.-there are. 38 or 39 of ours .up; there right.now, working "for he con- tinued. "Russia has only one of which is doing something." He asserted that Russia's efforts have been concentrated on. the "glamorous" aspects of space ex- ploration, such as manned orbital flight and a shot to the moon. But, he said, the American pro- gram is actually producing more in the way of solid accomplish- ment and the gathering of scien- Both Sides Agree To Steel Pact PITTSBURGH ne gotiators announced Saturday terms of a new two-year labor agreement that was immediately hailed by President Kennedy as fulfilling his appeal for an early and responsible settlement. The pact waived any immedi- ate -wage increase but provided a broad array of contract changes including new vacation and re- tirement provisions aimed at shar- ing work time in an industry hard hit by unemployment. David J. McDonald, president of the Steelworkers Union, said pro visions for longer vacations and extra vacation time off for longer- service workers, together with more liberal pension arrangements should open work in steel mills to thousands of extra employes. He said he did not know how many. The agreement apparently call ed for labor costs increases in the neighborhood of 10 cents an hour, as was reported in advance. The estimate was supported by an in- dustry statement that it would in crease labor costs about 2V4 per cent. The union said no accurate cost estimate was possible. However, Kennedy in a tele- phone -message to McDonald at the union's Wage Policy Commit- tee meeting said -the settlement was "obviously noninflationary and should provide a. solid base for continued price stability." The union Policy Committee had already ratified the new agreement along with the union's Executive Board. An industry statement said the settlement is the. most moderate in years and the first since 1954 achieved without a-strike. It lifts the danger of a strike only until August 1963, however, because on that date the union will be free to renew a walkout threat It is given the right to re- open the contract as of then on wages, pensions, insurance and other matters. It was evident, however, that (Continued on Two) OKLAHOMA Generally fair Sunday. High 55-60. High temperature in Ada Sat- urday was 63, after a Friday Bight low of 33; reading at S f, m.

The speaker defended the slow- ness and. caution, the apparently needless delays, in the nation's space efforts on the ground that "we're thinking about that boy in the machine."
