Published dally except Sunday and Lttal Indiana Evening Gazette May 20 Point of View Right Down Their Red Kids Two Years Ahead By PETER EDSON WASHINGTON Salty Vice Adm Hyman G Rickpver is best known as the daddy of the atom ic submarine Shippingport atomic power plant and the fast comeback But his ideas on the educational system show hes a free thinker in that field too Im not afraid of federal aid to he says bluntly We had a little of it the Smith Hughes Vocational Education Act of 1917 And we got still more in Education Act last year The only thing wrSnf wft federal aid to educatloV the admiral believes is that there hasnt been enough o Admiral Rickover looked all through the ist papers of postRevejjfj War days to see if any reference to free He found none By WILLIAM L INGEESOLL ANOTHER perhaps the latest likelylooking profit making racket to be taken over by gigantic organized gangster mobs is the sale of obscene pornographic stuff being distributed to adolescents against the wishes of the latters parents Arthur E Summerfeld Postmaster General of the U S is trying to get word to parents across the land to cooperate with his department in putting an end to tne M the CivU War he use of the mails for the sale and distribution of lewd ana We got a little more immoral publications pictures and suggestive materials In devious ways peculiar to the trade in this sort of stuff names of boys and girls are obtained along with ad dresses Mailings are sent to youngsters addressed to them for their personal attention Once in a while par ents intercept the mail and then furiously angry mothers go to the Post Office and ask how this kind of thing can be stopped 5 Mr Sumnierfield told a Conference of Women s Civic Educational Parent and Religious Organizations in Washingotn D recently that about complaints about obscenity in the mails were sent in a short period of time to the Postal Inspection Service All were investi gated About twothirds of those complaints were parents objecting to the receipt of lewd material by their adolescent children In the case of a single mailing by one of those pur veyors of filth over complaints were received All but three of them were from parents of young people to whom they were sent The FBI states that again and again investigations of aremd robbery extortion embezzlement and forgery authorities find that those guilty of such crimes were early collectors of obsence pictures and Almost all sex crimes the Postmaster General says were carried out by perverts who had long addiction to pornographic and sadistic material This includes sex murders proving that this kind of lewd material can be a threat to the safety of society Many children may never Be exposed to this material but it is possible nevertheless that they might become the victims of sex criminals who have been exposed to it Congress is concerned with the problem It has learned there are roadblocks to enforcement of the laws regulating such matters First class mail is private Only the recipient can help the authorities If he or she will disclose such mail to the Postmaster action can be taken It is estimated on the basis of known facts that to one million children will receive such invita tions to depravity through the the Postmaster Gen eral told his audience in Washington This is big business It is the kind of business gangsters want to get in No matter what may be the harvest in destroyed lives organ ized gangsters will find it right down their Womens organizations are especially incensed over the growing threat to safety Already they are flanking to attack this thing headon A U S Senate Subcommittee made a study of the problem and included the following paragraph in its re port There is a peculiar resemblance to narcotic ad diction in exposure of juveniles to There is the same pattern of progression Once initiated into the knowledge of the unnatural the impressionable young mind with the insatiable curiosity characteristic of those reaching for maturity and inevitably hunts for something stronger something with mpre jolt something imparting a greater No section of the nation is spared the spread of pornography and lewdness Indiana and vicinity is no less likely to be overlooked by the purveyors of such stuff than any other area Citizens therefore must be alert to the dangers and meet them with vigorous opposition THESOUTHS candidate for President in 1948 was South Carolinas Dixicrat Sen Strom Thurmond The Senator is a great man whose humility and geographical heritage have kept him from moving up among the na tions socalled VIPs He among other prominent Congressional and ad ministration leaders quietly meets every Wednesday morning for breakfast and worship This practice is not political It is a private and nonpublicized practice Dis cussions frequently turn to an appraisal of great people of history and a study of what makes them tick Lincoln and Robert Edward Lee were recently com pared Lee was found by the Senator to be the wor sjiipped leader pf a defeated people who remained humble His simple humility set him apart ahead and above his fellow As Gen Lee rode past a campfire Sen Thurmond told his colleagues a Confederate Private remarked Well boys the rest of us may have developed from gmonkeys put I tell you only God Almighty could make a man like Robert The South has produced many great men past and present Lee is an example Who Will End Wars Drew Pearson Reports from Actor First Tried To Bring lolshoi Ballet To America from staid conserva tiyS

to adopt free compulsory education That was in 1920 Education is freer in most countries of Europetoday than if is in the United says the admiral University feeis in Europe are the equivalent of to a

either Theres only one un ion of teachers and all criticism from within is stopped he says John Dewey the late Ameri can educator is still god and National Education Assn h i s apostles THE RUSSIANS adopted the Dewey method after their revo lution in 1917 Then they threw it out and adopted the British sys temUnder it the national gov ernment gives help to local school systems with two exped ients They get no money unless they comply with the rules And there are competent inspectors to make sure they comply The result of this educational reform says Rickover is that by 1960 the Soviet will have scientists to our according to best estimates A University of Michigan team that went to Russia found that Russian high school graduates were two years ahead of ours Russian graduates are not just technicians eithtr They have a good liberal arts training and background This enables them to thinkbetter and gives them a greater desire to lead And they have no drum the admiral observes deadpan SOVIET college professors are now paid the equivalent of fac tory managers American teachers says the admiral are now paid about what theyre worth But if they were paid a little more it might induce bet ter people to enter the teaching profession It takes 30 to 40 years to make any changes in the educational system and we dont have the best brains in the country work ing on it the admiral observes Everyone ought to have the opportunity to get the best edu cation he can But with school boards in the country he asks how is it possible to pro vide with equal opportunity In contrast to these views on education presented in the course of an hourlong rapid fire questionandanswer session with Admiral Rickover consider i proposed constitutional amend meat now before Congress U has been

they did what trained diplomats and silled politicians have not been able to do CULTURE AND COMMUNISM For the Americans who plauded the grace and symmet ry fo he Bolshoi Ballet began to understand that a determined cultured people had produced it dating 1773 when a dancer from the St Petersburg Court Theatre Filippo Becc ari had offered to teach children in the Moscow Orphanage how to dance They began to realize that a ballet so beautiful could not have come from a nationof State Policemen and Communist criminals but from a nation which has achieved great beau ty and which now by finally lifting the Iron wants to share it Likewise the Russian baller inaswho toured Washington by bus before their performance knew they were hot nation of hate mongers and wicked capitalists When they wanted to stop rush hour traffic near the 14th Street Bridge to take pictures of the Jefferson Memorial because it was so beautiful they probably did not know that it was erected in hon or of the first and foremost teacher of American Democracy They just knew that the memor ial in honor of Thomas Jeffer son was beautiful and regard Boyle Nothing Permanent By SAUL PETT NEW YORK AP The news from

ecstasy of these modernday Russians over his Gallery BOLSHOI BALLET PIONEER Another man who should have been present to watch the Bol shoi Ballet take Washington is Eddie Dowling the Irish actor with more gold in his heart than in his pockets It was Eddie Dowling who first urged the Bolshoi Ballet be brought to Washington shortly af ter Roosevelt resumed relations with the Soviet Union Dowling had helped elect Roosevelt in 1932 as head of his Stage Screen and Radio Committee and the only thing he asked in return was to be permitted to talk with Soviet ForeignMinister Maxim Litvinqv regarding the Bolshoi v Late one night at the White House Roosevelt arranged the meeting Dowling urged Litvinov to improve American Russian friendship by bringing the Bal let to the United States Litvinov was noncommital later sent word the Ballet was too busy Twentyfive years have passed since then The Iron Curtain has been lifted American tourists can now go to Russia Almost professors farm leaders business leaders labor leaders athletes artists musicians have exchanged visits A Russian ex change student at Columbia Uni versity has become one of the most popular men on the Cam pus And the exchange agree ment is about to be renewed So slowly but irresistibly and effectively people to people friendship is working And its success will make it much hard er for some trigger happy General or rabble rousing poli tician on either side of the Iron Curtain to start war Bolshoi Ballet was an appro priate climax to this forward march of friendship and Eddie Dowling the Irish actor who con

when Bobs little brother was released from his rest hour His interest in the scooter pro ject was immediate and intense So intense that when Bob said Beat it Get away from that he swung his foot and deliberatley kicked over the He was punished While his outraged brother and Speedy tried to retrieve their spilled paint Buddy was returned to his room to repent his evil impulse Had it been wholly
