Lebanon Daily News (Newspaper) - November 1, 1965, Lebanon, Pennsylvania 32 Lebanon Dally News Lebanon Pa Monday November 1965 Notes From A Newsmans Notebook Ted Cress By TED GKESS One of the highlights of my busy existence is attending the State Department briefings held each Spring and Fall in Washington Here you listen to the top men in government discuss American ioreipn policy and you get a chance to fire questions at them The sessions are conducted on a backgroundonly basis and the statements made are not for attribution to either the individual or the department he represents This is fine and presents no problem except that the briefings held last week uncovered some interest ing and littleknown information about the Secretary of State And since I had a hand in the situation I feel that Dean Rusk wont mind if 1 reveal it to the readers of the Lebanon Daily News There were nearly GOO news media representatives in the spacious auditorium when the twoday confer ence got under way with a talk by Rusk This to me has always been the top spot in the program for the Secre tary has been one of my favorite people since 1 first heard him back m 1961 He is a gifted speaker not in the sense of being a great orator but in being able to present his facts clearly and con cisely He vises no notes yet his talks are better organized than those of many speakers who read their presentations In last weeks briefing Rusk moved swiftly through the world situation as it relates to the United States graphically reviewing the many problems which confront this nation Then he touched on demonstrations againstthe US policy regarding Viet Nam He acknowledged that weve got to have debate but be as responsible as possible stressed it should Then he casually remarked that I guess it annoys these young people who are demon strating hat an old guv like me once demon strated After that he quickly changed the subject Came the question and answer period and hands shot up all over the hall for the Secretary of State is the favorite target of inquiring newsmen I frantically waved my hand and finally caught Jiis eye He nodded in my direction and I stood up Mr Secretary I said my curiosity prompts me to ask what did you demonstrate against in your youth He smiled and quickly replied scrap iron to Japan And Just as quickly turned to the next question This left me Unsatisfied I decided I would pur sue the matter further at the reception held at the end of the first days briefings in the beautiful John Hancock room on the top floor of the State Depart ment Building Top government officials particularly those who take part in the twoday program generally attend the reception I watched for Rusk to arrive and hustled over before he was hemmed in by the usual crowd which gathers around him I shook hands and identified myself as the person who asked the question about the demonstration I told him Id like a little more information about it Oh lets forget about it he said I think Ive said more than enough already pen Well Mr Rusk I pressed where did it hap was out in California before World War Two he answered T was a law student Where did the demonstration actually take place I asked Along the docks he said and then turned to answer a question from another newsman for by this time he was completely surrounded Husk as I said is a great favorite with the press because of his ability to give forthright answers He admitted during his formal presentation in the morning this isnt always easy The press he said certainly is up to date Most of the reporters dviring a press conference ask me to be a prophet this I cannot be He does however bring into focus complicated thing called US foreign policy Local Photographer Gets 4 Top Awards William E Btiser manager of Harpels Studio captured top awards for four direct color por traits it was announced at the fall meeting of the Penn Cen tral Photographers Association held Sunday at York

Jhestnut Ave Herslicy was reated Sunday afternoon at the lershey Hospital for an injury o his left small finger which was received while playing foot ball MY ANSWER Addresses Teachers Conference What did Christ mean when He said He was the Son of Man Jn find T F view of the fact that we this phrase used over eighty times in the Gospel rec ords it must be of unusual sig nificance There were probably many reasons why Christ so designated Himself He was truly God bul He was also truly man and He came to identify Himself with mankind and their needs Also while it was true that He was the promised Son of David He wished to make clear that He had come to save men of every nUon and race In using the name Son of HQ there by declared the universality of His offer of salvation that He came to redeem all who will accept Him as Savion It is im possible for the finite mind to grasp all the implications ofthe incarnation God coming into the world in human form but it is a glorious fact and in this act of Gods love qnd mercy salvation is free to all who will accept it today before the 3500 educators entral education conference Educators from Lebanon City 3auphiir and Perry Counties leard
