Aiken Standard and Review (Newspaper) - August 10, 1955, Aiken, South Carolina Stace Foth Aiken Standard and review wednesday Augustio 1055 another Haze i As lir Hurricane Connie howls its Way toward the Mainland of the United states in Tho Atlantic Ocean Only a few Hundred Miles away the thought naturally becomes dominant in the minds of residents along the coast will the current storm carry the same Force and cause As much loss of life and property As did its precedes or Hazel last year now is tin time to Quot Batten Down the hatches and prepare for the blow. It is a fact that the great loss of life from the Hurricane last summer which practically devastated the South Carolina coast came because of the fact that residents in its path refused to sufficiently regard the menace As a killer and remained in its path even after being warned in a futile Effort to try to save property. It is Only reasonable that life is More valuable than property and in the event that Hurricane Connie blows into. The coastal regions of this state then when the storm warnings come residents should vacate As quickly As possible and leave the area even though property is destroyed. Man cannot Cope with the forces of nature and to attempt to do so is extremely Foolhardy. Unmasked on that very Day that the atomic Energy commission reported that a a. The soviets have resumed testing of nuclear weapons Premier Nikolai Bulgarin gave his answer to president Eisenhower a Geneva proposal to Exchange military a a blueprints and permit Aerial reconnaissance of each others countries. In to too carefully chosen words com prising a report to the supreme soviet on the Geneva a a Summit conference Bulgarin said a a not. He praised the conference said it was a a serious step toward he ridiculed the Eisenhower offer on the ground that either Side could hide anything it wanted to and what passes for a a parliament in a one party dictatorship howled with mirth presumably at the angelic naivete of those americans. Bulgarin said a no Quot simply because he did no to dare to say he had too much to learn from such an arrangement Russia too Little. You can build defense plants underground camouflage Many others. But you can to hide starvation vast slave Camps the miser of millions or an inordinate military build up except behind an Iron curtain. When Bulgarin said a a not he snatched away the smirking false face that had so nearly deceived the free nations. When Bulgarin said a a not that a a new look the Kremlin had so carefully and artfully constructed went up in a puff of orator a. Of course the communists Haven to changed. But it took president Eisenhower a daring Challenge to unmask them. A common tradition it might have been any town in America. Men and women were lined up patiently at the polls. Each voter entered a private Booth and made his selection. Then he placed his secret ballot in a ballot Baw but it did no to take place Here. It happened in the Middle East fi.000 Miles from Here. It happened in Israel. Side by Side in the voting lines stood moslem. Christian Ariel jew. They were alike in the eyes of the government one vote As Strong As the other in this third general election. And although Israel is Only seven years old its democratic rights have become a tradition. It is a tradition we in America have cherished for 179 years. Tile United states helped to Foster this now Republic of Israel. We have a Western brother in the Middle East. I a fortunate mistakes commenting on the action of state tax agents in stopping cars coming into the state from North Carolina to see if they w Ere bringing in liquor or cigarettes the Dorchester Eagle record says a South Carolina is getting some very unfavourable publicity through the activities of the states tax agents in their efforts to Stop the flow of cigarettes and alcoholic beverages across the North Carolina Border. A personally we use neither of these commodities but we believe that a citizen is denied a constitutional right when he is forbidden to Purchase lawful goods and transport them from one state to another. It is 9 violation of personal lil it erties. A certainly the state is losing Revenue through this inter state traffic in cigarettes and liquor but if the legislature had not blindly placed unreasonably High taxes on these articles this problem would not have a Man shall Imas an hiding place from the wind and a Covert from the tempest is Rivers of water in a or place As the Shadow of a great Rock in a Wear a land.

Howell publisher editor general manager Arisen. Lower the tax and the enforcement problem As Well As that of the Bootlegger will not exist. A we do not blame North carolinians for being sore at us. Perhaps they might retaliate by placing a High tax on All couples who come Over into South Carolina to become married. You would hear some howl from the Border countes if their Revenue from this profitable source was dried up a the Eagle re Fml has stated the Case about As Well As it cart be stated. The searching of cars coining into the state is an unfortunate mistake that ought to be abandoned a can have import duties Between the chronicle. Two and a half years in hell in our Joy at having those eleven courageous flyers Home again As free men and Iii remarkably Good physical condition we should not forget that they left hundreds of fellow americans behind them in what condition we do not know.

Washington a with Congress out of town. President Eisenhower is spending More tune on the Golf course at Gettysburg and at the burning tree club just outside of Washington. Caddies Ai burning tree have got to know the president almost As Well As some members of the Cabinet know him. As tar As Golf is concerned they know him better. And some of the caddies have quite a collection of his Golf balls the gift to Ike of a sporting goods firm with a emr. President stamped on them. The president usually gives one or two away during a match but they Are kept As souvenirs by the Lucky recipients Anil never put Back into play. Golfing companions have noted a special improvement in Ike a driving he consistently pokes pm off the tee for 200 Yards or longer. However he is still a Little erratic in his putting and approach shots particularly on Quot a nip shots that have to be lofted Over a trap. He works on this whenever he has time to practice on the White House Lawn in a regular match the president shoots in the High 80 a better than average at burning tree. But he is a fierce competitor Hales to lose to anyone even hts son John now stationed Ai nearby fort Belvoir a. John hits a longer Ball but is not As Good a Putter As his father who usually beats him by a few strokes. Other favorite golfing cronies of the president include col. Tom Belshe a retired army officer. Jack Westland of Washington and gop congressmen Charlie Hal Leck of Indiana and los Arends of Illinois. Westland was National Amateur golfing Champion in 1952. However Ike keeps his favorite sport on a bipartisan plane by sometimes inviting rep. George Mahon of Texas or an other Democrat to join in a foursome. Danger on Golf course the president insists on splitting Caddy fees with his foursome partner. Counting tips this usually is $7 for 18 Hoies making Ike s share $3 50. He always pays off in Crisp new Bills. At the end of a match he a a replays a his Good and bad shots while under the Shower or while chatting with fellow play ers Over refreshments at the �?o19th Ike is an eager Beaver Type on the Green and moves so fast after teeing off that he sometimes is standing Over his Ball while companions who May be lying farther from the Green and therefore Are entitled to the next shot Are preparing to swing again. This causes some concern at burning tree. A suppose a a remarked on of Ike a golfing pals Quot one of us should accidentally hit the president while he it standing there ahead of of. He is such a Strong competitor and so engrossed in his game that he does t think about the possibility of getting conked by a stray when the president is advised of his risky position he apologizes and Steps Back with a Grin so the game can go on. The secret service keep a vigilant Eye on the chief executive though not out of fear that he May be hit by a Golf Ball. One of Ike a favorite golfing stories is about a secret service a lapse a one Day when he was playing at burning tree. Secret service agents were at the Entrance Gate checking automobiles and their occupants. Merle Thorpe former editor of nation s business drove up and was asked his name. Without blinking an Eye. Thorpe reeled off the most russian sounding name he could make up. With a Quot skin on the end of it. Quot past on said the agent without record bankruptcies despite the full blown Prosperity in most of the u. S., bankruptcy eases in the same u. Are at an All Ticino High. This probable represents the difficulty of Small business to compete against the modern methods of big Busi new a. How Many companies Are going bankrupt is indicated by the recent request of the Commerce department for the largest amount of Money in history for salaries to referees in bankruptcy siting on this request the House p n ing and currency committee stated a the committee was advised that approximately 65 too Bank-1 Utcy cases will be filed in 1955, that a total increase of 75.000 in 1936 can be expected. This would be the highest number of bankruptcies recorded in the history of the meanwhile the profits of general motors during the first year of the Eisenhower administration increased approximately 50 per cent. Special session Eisenhower had a talk with top Republican leaders in Congress just before they left Washington and explained to them what his strategy would be in regard to a Aerial session of Congress. Now Ike is the Laef one who could want a special session of Congress. He does no to particularly relish having Congress in town. To Days feels better when they re out of town. But he notified leaders that he would Call a meeting of his Council of economic advisers in late september and get from them a prognostication in regard to the economic condition of the nation they have been warning him that runaway inflation might cause trouble around the Spring of �?T56. This is the worst time from a political Point of View for the Republican Pally to have a recession. But the White House economic advisers though not entirely unanimous. Have feared that the tremendous Sale of automobiles this year. Plus the Sale of houses most of it instalment plan buying. Might overload consumer buying Power and Lead to a retrenchment. Therefore if the presidents economic advisers take a dim View of the future in late september Eisenhower told congressional leaders he would Call Congress Back in october to pass a Highway Bill. This would provide new spending and stave off any recession. Note meanwhile some of the publicity experts around the White House and Ike was a lot of them Are undertaking a Gross roots drive to put the heat on congressmen while they re at Home to step up sentiment for a Highway Bill Washington pipeline segregation for senator Holland of Florida at a dinner at the Bra Robert c. Ruark strange pos brainwashed came from country towns it is a curious thing to me that so Many of the pos who were brain washed or who elected to join the communists or become turncoat come from Small country towns. The three pos who arrived Back in the . Last week flip froth America to the korean commies and Back to America again. Are All from tiny tankers. William co Wert comes from Dalton. A. Lewis Griggs is from Jacksonville Texas and Otho Bell is from Hillsboro. Miss. You might be tempered to say that a Man would be More Apt to acquire the seeds of treason in a City. It is popular to suppose that the City boy is More surrounded by evil associates by More temptation to do wrong by constant examples of bad health broken Homes and flagrant sinning by his elders. Conversely the hillbilly from nowhere, is supposed to be stuffed with vitamins Bright. With Sunshine Clear eyed from the Good fresh air. And constantly reminded of gods work by the lavish nature that surrounds him. There is supposed to be no association More evil than the one Pool Hall and an occasional snort of a Shine to Lead him into sin. I was raised in a Small town and i am Here to say that i Learned a lot More Devi try in Southport. N. A than in the comparatively Large and sophisticated City of Wilmington. I have met More downright ornery Farmers than downright ornery City slickers. And there is nothing so vicious As the gossip and intrigue that stirs a Small Community into violence. You can get a Man lynched in a Small town by starting a Rumor and the lips of the onlookers Are licked with unconcealed relish. It is popular to suppose that the country boy is blessed with a certain native shrewdness Horn of constant Contact with Birds and bees bul it ainu to necessarily so. Some of the dumbest people i Ever list embassy recently where he ate his first meal at the same Tabic with a negro. The supper was elven in Honor of the honorable Norman Washington Manley chief minister of Jamaica and the honorable Albert Gomes minister of labor Industry and Commerce of Trinidad. At the supper or. Manley sat not far from senator Holland. On july 13. Secretary of Hie army Wilber Brucker flew to Omaha neb., to be guest speaker at the 37th reunion of the famed Rainbow division of which he is a member. Because he was going in an official capacity then Secretary of the army Robert Stevens gave him the use of his plane. Rather than Fly alone truck or contacted some Rainbow veterans around Washington and look them along some guests complained at having to leave Omaha Early and miss the big party but All were impressed by Nick Era a thoughtfulness. President Eisenhower Hasni to Given in his atoms for peace ship. In a private letter to a Knect Reuys gof congressman Jim Patterson. Ike we Rote Quot the reasons underlying our plan or such a ship Are no less impelling now than when i was first considered. The world. By and Large today considers atomic science As having a destructive purpose and As being of primary importance Only to two great world centers Washington and Moscow. We simply must demonstrate convincingly to the world in As Many ways As we can. And to As Many Peoples As we pm. That we Are determined to utilize Anomie science to improve the int of Man. I deeply believe that the atoms for peace Shin should dramatize these efforts All Over the met were crackers from the Erskine Caldwell belts some of the Shittiest and most shiftless a3 Well. As far As nutrition is concerned ill bet a malnourished City boy any Day against a Cotton Picken Cla Yeater. The downright dullness of a Small Tovin life creates a receptivity to nearly any sort of suggestion that will pull the brain s owner out of his routine rut of mumble to Peg and tobacco a hawing in front of the drugstore. The turpentine cat or the dog with a can tied to its Tail Are Only manifestations of boredom. As i recall the last War i was mixed up in my slum kids caught on a lot faster and made much firmer fighting Stock than the bucolic refugees from Iowa and Georgia i had aboard ship. Most of the trouble makers were people like myself Southern boys from Small towns. The for cd sle sea Law yer came off a hard scrabble farm. I feel sorry for these three dumb Guys who probably thought communism was a kind of game like tarring and fathering and who thought repatriation was a punishment involving work or something equally simple. I done to think the government should be too vindictive because i would bet none of the three can spell let alone define it. There were so Many Good kids who had no business being in Korea that it seems to me we con forgive a few of the bad ones As unimportant to the general scheme.
