It was to be a showpiece of the peace fill uses of otherwise warlike nuclear Power and a demons ration of american interest in these peaceful aspects. Bui the ship is being mothballed at Galveston tex., because the company operating it can t get along with some of its Crow chiefly 20-Odd Union engineers. They Are Money jealous of the deck officers who months ago mane Vered an arbitration which gave them a generous pay differential still in the courts. The Engineer dispute seems insoluble and every body on All sides pretty angry. Commerce Secretary Luther Hodges whose department has jurisdiction says the attitude of the engineers is deplorable and according to or. Hodges these Fellows were trained especially for this ship and while the Long training up to three years was in Progress a majority were paid s14.000 to a year. Not bad. Anyway the ship has no usefulness symbolic or otherwise while it is tied up. So or. Hodges has Sev eral notions of what to do hire another shipping firm to run tile Savannah a course not Likely to remove the Union problem. Or let the maritime commission oper ate it directly. Or turn it Over to the Navy. The Only mentioned objection to Navy operation is that having an armed service Crew May seem a Little ironic for a ship. Of phooey the whole purpose of our Navy is to preserve the peace. Anyway the Savannah is a peaceful ship regardless of the Crew. If the ship is to be sent on a world tour As planned nobody could be More competent to run it and nobody would make a better impression on Friendly Peoples than Navy officers and Crew. This seems like something Juk an old Navy Man could handle with immediate dispatch and decorum. Half Way Security is no Security once again the House has passed a Bill to tighten up the Security at the highly secret National Security Agency. The Asa is so secret hardly anyone even knows what it. Does but the defense department of which it is a part has said officially that it has enor Mous Security thai being me Case the utmost care in choosing employees is essential. In i960, two mathematicians employed by Asa took in on the Lam and wound up in Moscow where they presumably spilled the secret information to which they were privy. As a result a House committee made an exhaustive investigation. This inquiry revealed thai Security precautions at Asa were extremely lax and led to the dismissal or resignation of the personnel director and the Security director of All people plus 28 others. The Bill just passed by the House is designed to prevent this from happening again. The House passed a similar Bill last year but the Senate let it lie. Tins time the Senate should act too. On its Way through the House the Bill was subjected to several diluting amendments All aimed at protect employees subject to dismissal. This Mish Mash was Defeated. As one congressman argued nobody has a right to work for this Agency is a High privilege and the government cannot afford to misplace its Confidence in employees not of the highest character and stability. The Law in itself is not a guarantee against defectors or weaklings. But it is a proper step. There is no such thing in a hush hush Agency of tins Type _ As almost Security. It must be absolute because anything else could vitally affect the National Security. What Are they asking the tragic racial turmoil in the deep South has overshadowed some equally distressing struggles to the North in the Small town of Cambridge on Maryland s Eastern Shore negro sit in demonstrators have been marching off to jail in such and with such apparent cheerfulness that the forces of Law and order showed signs of coming unglued. At one Point last week 5 youngsters told they were free to leave jail and go Home simply declined to accept the inv Ilal Ion. Nor would their parents come to pick them up. The wonderful thing about Cambridge is that it numbers among its citizens circuit judge w. Laird Honry a Man of obvious intelligence honesty and coir judge Henry took it upon himself to form a com Mittee with five other prominent. Cambridge residents and together they sat Down with the sit ins. What did the negroes want Well they wanted to be allowed to Send their Chil Dren to the nearest schools to spend their Money at restaurants and other business establishments of then choosing to work at jobs they can do and to buy Homes what they said judge Henry when the was. Over is not Only reasonable but what they ought to a statement so simple so Jusi and so True it is remarkable that no one has said it in quite these same words before. J the negroes have now agreed to halt their demonstrations while judge Henry s committee attempts to spread the gospel to the rest of the town. We wish them Luck. The warning to Poland communist Poland As a member of the three nation control commission in Laos never was expected to do anything More than support communist Side distortions All along. That was her Job As Moscow s errand boy on the scene. But in the past Tew months she Lias been exceeding going so far As to obstruct the truce team s functioning on the Plains pcs Jarrus and thereby giving Groat advantage of Patchet lao movements. Belatedly fhe Kennedy administration has taken notice of this and is now reminding Warsaw that the United states is not Likely to remove Trade harriers against polish imports if the poles in Laos do not help in maintaining the cease fire. It might work. Poland stands to lose quite a few million dollars if we exclude her from Tariff reductions under the a s. Trade expansion act. And red satellites have demonstrated that they like dollars some times better than exerting mischief on the International front. Anyway the leverage is there and it s about time to use it. Ruark cab s merger reluctance called silly by Robert c. Ruark As a fellow who flies More than he walks and who has come to regard his air travel card As equally Valu Able As his passport i cannot for the life of me see where there is legit m a t e avg men against the merger of America s two major internal airlines Eastern and american. Logic is not generally a part of the Menta equipment of the civil aeronautics Board which usually files its decisions by the Seal of its punts but even the cab ought to be amenable to some of the Basic facts of life. The scuttlebutt is that Eastern is having a hard Lime with finances Eastern which used to Rake in the chips on its pared to the Bone operation in the old propeller Days. American in t busted but it s breaking just a Little better than even. The reason that Eastern May be Short on Cash and american Ain t filthy Rich is that both air lines share duplicate routes jets have changed the whole concept of air transport and the government via cab gave Eastern a whole flock of fresh Competition Over the past few years. Eastern can take a million annual subsidy to which it s legally entitled and perhaps Limp along a Little longer in the kind of nonsensical operation which allows six of eight airlines which Fly out of new York to make the Boston run Limp along and almost undoubtedly disappear. Or it can merge with american eliminate duplication of routes make use of american s Jet and Eastern needs 10 big jets and some 40 smaller 707 s to replace its Creaky Piston Fleet. These jets would Cost some Mil lion which Eastern has t got any More than it s got the million it owes its creditors. At this writing the two companies Are awaiting a decision from the cab and the president. Everybody concerned in both Compa Nies management the stockholders the Money lenders Are in favor of the merger. Everybody is in favor of the merger that is except possibly the cab the antitrust , and t no airlines which compete with Eastern and american. The chief stated objection is that a merger would sup ply a third of America s Domestic air transportation which seems a Petty silly argument. The chief com Peting tines such As Delta and nation Are doing Fine because they recently have been awarded More or less monopolistic Roules which in the interests of sanity is As it should be. There is no Point to a Duplica live scramble. As to a combined american Eastern merger providing a third of the transport who beefs about Campbell supplying four Fiflis of the nation s soup what cab really does not seem to understand is that today s route system of air travel bears no real resemblance to the Fine Brave years of the dc3. The big new jets produce four times As much transportation As the Best of the big Piston jobs in a single Day s work. Tie jets inherited the crazy Quill route Structure from the pistons and chaos and potential bankruptcy is the result. The Only thing existing airlines travelling duplicate routes can do to survive is to Cut operating costs american and Eastern now serve 30 cities in common. Brass of both outfits claim a merger will reduce an Nual operating costs by million in three years and capital expenditure by More than million. An example is that Eastern s to r k 1 o a d is heaviest in Winter Spring while american s is heaviest in summer fail inter switching of fleets from transcontinental to North Pulli would make a combined Fleet smaller than the separate fleets of today. Dropping More work on american s current Jot Fleet would eliminate Eastern s need for 10 new big jets and Cut requirements for the smaller Tri Jet Fleet by six or eight aircraft. Eastern a n d american moan piteously thai they Only want a Chance to help themselves by the merger to Cut Down on the empty whence Hope had All but fled. American ordeals not ended for our new hero of space the Tribune Public forum Why not Transfer Money to stamp plan commodities through Wel fare for those eligible Are valued at per month per person. Under food Stamps value of the food added to each person s diet is and the recipient pays a per cent the Federal government a per cent.

Opening a june 30, 1962, Republican Gal hiring Al his Gettysburg farm Eisenhower endorsed Advance and urged All present to sub scribe. Those present re ported that Hallock required restraint by Calmer counsel when Ike endorsed the mag Azine. The March edition contained a free swinging at tack on Hallock Dirksen and Goldwater. Halleck had read it if by Chance the general had not. The March Issue was devoted to re publicans on Capitol the Magazine described the Republican congressional leadership As reluctant Lazy or hostile in mat ters of responsibility to the Well being of Hie nation and of the Republican parly. It attributed to several of Hal Rcck s Republican colleagues the statement that Hallock has t read a serious Book in 10 years and is suspicious of those who have.

Advance continues to Potshot Halleck d i r k s in and Goldwater. There continues to be suspicion that Advance i s promoting Michigan s gov. George Romney for the 1964 re publican presidential nomination and with the Conni Vance of Gen. Eisenhower. Acl Vangemen stoutly deny this on balance however Advance must be rated As a representative of mod Ern or Eisenhower or Liber Al republicanism As opposed to the party conserva Tives and especially to the nomination of Goldwater. But Advance is no Ostrich. It looks the facts in the face and concedes that Goldwater has a consider Able following in the re publican party.

Gordon Cooper has now endured homecomings in Honolulu and in the Juke Box Community that sur rounds this rocket h a s e. Ordinary human compas Sion dictates that he be turned Loose forthwith. But this is not to be. Further trials await him in Washington and new York. Even these ordeals will not end it. At the moment we must assume that festering in the recesses of some political Hack s mind is the conviction that Coop or should immediately stand for the Senate or for some other office for which he is manifestly unqualified. It takes some skill and Cour age to Pilot a space machine. Both these qualities Are handicaps if not fatal disabilities to service in Congress. Gordon would be the first to Tell you that any reason ably skillful test Pilot could have duplicated his feat. But none of us is willing to note this simple fact and Content ourselves with admiring his courage and then permit him Qiu etly to re turn to risking his neck for a living. Instead we subject him to All the tribal rites thai 200 years of adolescence have taught us. The specimen american hero must meet the presi Dent often must address Congress As Well and is Al ways subject to the final in dignity of starring n a trash throwing Parade in new York. By the time it is All Over our hero is firmly enshrined in the folklore a waxworks figure Pat ted into the same unreal Mold of virtue that the re Public has been using Ever since Nathan Hale got the Steps and the string. Any american general who escapes from a War with his major blunders undiscovered is even Money to become president. Grant a Good Soldier and a skillful whisky Drinker had no More business being presi Dent than he had preaching a gospel but he was elected by a Republic whose gratitude was exceeded Only by its Lack of wit. Until Harding replaced him As Anchor Man of course Grant was the worst chief executive the nation has Ever survived and poor old Harding s Only offence was that he looked like a heroic statesman. The hero himself is Seldom to Larne. Charles Lindbergh who stands first As the All time victim of hero worship did every thing he could do to shut off the disgusting spigot of mass adoration. But he might As Well have tried to shunt aside a Hurricane. Eventually the whole sorry show revolted him As it would have revolted any Man of decent instincts and he became a Recluse with the tragic consequences we All know. It is possible in View of its median in to forgive the Public almost any orgy of tasteless Ness. Not so easily forgiven Are the cynical and self seeking politicians who commonly Sun them selves in the reflected glory of the hero in the game of getting votes. Hanging a medal on an authentic Folk hero is Worth two dozen wholesome Type family photographs on the cover of life. Nothing helps the old image quite so much and for the hero himself there is always the Heady possibility that he May be appointed court water skier As a re Ward for his co operation.

It is a thin Streak of free Dom that men and women Trace in history it is like a Mere line of Light coming through an opening door and piercing into a dark ened room. But slowly it widens it grows. We americans have opportunities beyond the peo ple of ail the world to Benefit from this. Our Mission is Freedom our cargo truth. Because the whole object of Poi Mica association is to secure moral completeness it is obvious that the citizen and least of All the american citizen does not surrender his life and his Hopes to the state. And for the first time in human history our founding fathers incorporated economic free Dom As a part of the whole. They announced that All Freedom came from god not from government. As one result this nation is a Success. This is Ameri Ca wonderland of the world. When you tour this land you cannot believe there is such trouble and uncertainty As there is in this nation. You cannot blame our floundering entirely on communism aboard. Our government needs a spirit As Well As a program. If we Are weak it is because we citizens Are not trusted. Nor do our leaders seem to Trust very much in the Constitution. This is being written in the Garden of a House that is older than the .
