Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT 81ST YEAR, NO. 264 PAGE ONE Vciiluro Pross, Albany, Tex- as, is in fact nothing much hut a posl office box and some idoas. It owns DO no machines, Its printing tins hecn clone in Fort Worth, its binding in Abi- lene, its merchandising from a corner of an historic stone building across from the Shack- elford County Courthouse, a building which houses, loo, an enterprise devoted to ttio design and construction of mechanical pipe organs. Venture Press has, however, most visible and beautiful pro- ductions. Its second hook, "True Tales of tho by HID late Sallie Reynolds Matthews of Al- bany, is now in the bookstores As was Venture Press' first book, "The Organ in Church De- this one is magnificent in both appearance and content. "True is a collection from Mrs. Matthews' memoirs, arranged, illus- trated find published by her grandson, Joseph Edwin Blan- ton. Venture Press. Albany, is Joe Blanton. It came into being a few years ago when Joe, ar- chitect and authority on organs, wrote his book, "The Organ." He designed and published it and sells it on direct order "Tho Organ." over 500 pages with 550 illustrations is a clefin- work, Reviewers have cle- il thuslyi "The most beautiful and valuable book on organs which we have seen" "A 'must' for those in- volved in any way with design- iii2. building and installing or- gans" "a once-in-a-life- lime of the great books in the English language on the .subject of the organ, possibly the greatest." Now comes Venture Press' second work, "True as told by the late Mrs. Matthews. Behind it, as well as in it, are stories. In IMS Sallic Reynolds Mat- thews wrote about her life in West Texas and called Iho book for il told of the Reynolds and Matthews (ami- lies and their inlerweavings. "Interwoven" was a home- grown classic. The supply of copies was exhausted. About four years ago another edition of "Interwoven" prepared at the direction of Mrs. Mat- thews' children. Carl Ilerlzog of El Paso, master typographer and designer, arranged and pub- lished tbe work. Copies of the Herlzog edition, too are now larc. So Blanlon. through Venture Press, lias published Ihis "True Talcs." It is in llcrlzog type. Drawings which illustrate it were done by Joe. The talcs stand on their own merits as crisp, tragic, humor- ous, sometimes amazing stories of frontier life. They are more meaningful to those who know tile history of this land and the loles of Ihc Matthews and Reyn- olds families in it. The cornice- lion of Iho two-fold clan with West Texas dates back to the first ranchers who settled this raw Indian land in the protec- tive shadow of Camp Cooper on (he Clear Fork a posl com- manded incidentally by Lt. Col. Robert E. l.ce. Venture Press IMS now pub- lished two books. One adds to the technical knowledge in a specialized field, the organ. The olher adds foolnoles to Ihc heri- tage of West Tcxans. What next for Venture Press? Etanton is thinking of a low- cost hook aimed at tonrisls, a guidebook to Spanish colonial architecture in Mexico.

Whole communities in southern New Jersey were co ered by up to five (cct of water, Helicopters, boats and amphi- bious vehicles were used to evac- uate refugees. Power was out in some sections. Food and water were dangerously low in some communities.

The Weather Bureau in Wash- ington said winds from the re- treating storm at a lime of nor- mally high tides combined to hat- ter the coast. In Norfolk, Va., the water roso to wilhin a foot of the record high. The main path of Ihc wind oul of the iKM'thcast was along a line extending from aboul 300 miles off Cape Cod to the Carolina coast. The storm hit at a time when sun and moon together wen everting their tidal pull on the sea. Meteorologist Eugene Iloovei said the wind velocity was cxcep tional for a winter storm and thai the wind and water probably made this the worst winter storm of record from the standpoint, o battering the coast. Police Chief Jerry Sullivan said of hard-hit Atlantic City, N.J., that the damage from the 1944 litn ricane was million and this will be more. Gov. Richard J. Hughes asked Sec KASTEKN, Pg. 10-A, Cols, 4-5 Ur New Tariff Cuts AgreementMade With 24 Nations WASHINGTON (API The White House has announced a ser- ies of laiiff-culting agreements with 24 countries, and said the United States has gained a 4-3 ad- vantage in their negotiation. In making this conlenlion, it said other countries agreed to lower tariffs on items which, in I960, accounted for billion worth of Iheir purchases from the Llnited States. On the other hand, U.S. tariff concessions covered commodities involved in bit- ion worth of U.S. purchases from :hose countries in the same year. The negotiations were described as the largest and most complex in the 28-year history of the Trade Agreements Acl. They were con- ducted in Geneva and involved, in addition to the United Slates, all the member countries of the European Economic Community and 18 other nations. On most items slated for lower tariffs, the reductions will be 20 per cent. In a few cases, however, the culs range up lo 26 per cent. One notable example was auto- mobiles, where tariffs will be slashed by 24 per cenl. Tlie White House estimated Wednesday that, once the reduc- tion on new cars goes into effect, the average American auto shipped to the European market will cost less. On .foreign- made cars entering the Unilet: States, tariffs would be cut aboul a c.ir. The tariff cuts are expected to be put into effect soon, but the exact time is yet to be deter- mined. It has to be worked out among all the nations involved. In the negotiations, an under- standing was reached that the Eu- ropean Economic Community will negotiate later on lowering tariffs on American agricultural com modifies. The White House sale this represented a fundamenla change in the position of the Eu ropean nations. The tariff cuts negotiated iv these agreements went alxmt as far as President Kennedy could go under the present trade agree ments law which expires June 30 Kennedy on Jan. 25 asked Con- gress to enact a new trade law vhieh would permit him to nego- iatc 50 per cenl tariff cuts with Vestern Europe and provide for he gradual elimination of tar- :fs on a wide variety of industrial terns. The proposed new law would lUthorizc lower tariffs on categor- cs of goods, instead of item by cm. The agreements announced Veilnesday were limited by pres- nt law to item by item action.
