Red Cross Tells of Red Restrictions Could See Only Few Prisoners MUNSAN Korea Red Uross officials returned Tuesday rom three weeks in Com munis North Korea and said they were illowed to talk only to handpicked UN prisoners of the watchful eyes of the Reds The chief of the 30man Red Jross team It M Jerram of lormvall England summed it up The general frustration of the vhole thing was a result of

a pood luck kiss a V er administers the oath Sgt Howard said he had six davs of civilian life since his release and that was enough An Editorial Courthouse Issue Still Unsolved Voters Rejected One Plan They Should Vote on Another E one thing certain about the Monday vote on a bond issue for the expansion of the present Cerro Gordo County Courthouse is that it did not generate any enthusiasm This was reflected not alone in the 46 per cent of favorable voles with GO per cent needed to validate a bond issue under Iowa law but in the fact that only one out of five who voted in the last presidential election went to the polls Monday It would be easy to scold the community for its notable lack of interest in a proposal which in volved the safety of invaluable public records as well as an addition to the existent property tax levy But that gets us nowhere It doesnt come to grips with the problem of why voters stayed away from the polls in such droves or why the relative ly few who showed up took a dim view of the proposition presented lo them QNE possibility of course is that the people of Cerro Gordo County havent been effectively alerted to the hazard present every hour of every day so far as those precious records are concerned If thats true this newspaper would have to ac cept a certain measure of blame for having fallen down on its first responsibility that of keeping the public informed about matters of vital concern to its welfare Still another possibility is that a great many residents of Cerro Gordo County just werent sold on spending more than half a million dollars on what really was a remodeled bviilding Practically all of the opposition to the proposal which has made itself manifest to us has been of this nature If this explanation oE what happened at the polls Monday is valid it cannot be said that the ways to remedy the present intolerable situation have been exhausted The people of Cerro Gordo County have not been given an opportunity to Vole on a wholly new Court house which without being the marble palace once proposed could be worthy of a county pos sessed of a pride in itself and a confidence in its future CjOME fifteen years ago when the Federal Govern men was supposed to pick up part of the check our people gave approval by resounding majority to a building ot somewhat ornate character But the approval came too late The federal funds had been withdrawn The point of view which prevailed in that earlier lest might well express itself now in a structure of less heroic proportions and design one which while being attractive to the eye would be built primarily for its If in the weeks ahead there is evidence lhat a substantial proportion of the people of Cerro Gordo County desire such a course of action we are con fident that the Board of Supervisors would make possible another expression of opinion The findings of the Grand Jury that the Court house lacks adequate storage facilities for public records and there are no fireproof storage facili ties provided in the building still stands A solu tion of the problem is still to be found We arc confident the voters will support a plan which they believe is the best solution What we are suggesting is a test on an all new Courthouse that will at least meet the minimum needs of the community present and future Mqson City Wth inW Priority List Mason City in 37th oC 217 cilic listed by the Federal Conimunica lion Commission in the order o heir priority for television appl nations The list was released bythe FC n connection with announce men f the new priority system fo landling competing application for new television stations The priorities apply io pcndin tontesls for which no hearing lave been held or arc schcdulcc The FCC will continue howevci lo give first call to uncontcslcd ipplicalions and will handle them n the order of filing Two Groups Under the new system put int iffect Monday competing applica ions arc broken down into twc communities that have no television station on thoair ant or those with one or more oper ting stations The FCC will handle applica ions in the two groups alternately Each list is arranged in order o lopulalion with the largest cities aving the highest priorities Ii he second group however al itics with one station on the air lave priority over those with two pcrating stations andthose iiore than two stations have a stil ower priority Under the alternate system the CC will handle applications for he top city in Grovip A then switch o the top city in Group B and then Iternate back and forth between ic two groups No Television Top priority in Group A for itics with no TV station on the air vent to Des Moines Waterloo was 4th and Mason City 48th in this St A complication arises however rom the fact that the FCC said ontestants who have already re eivcd written notices that their pplicalions will be heard will omc up ahead of priority list ities which havent been given a earing date notice Thus some cases well down the riority list will come up ahead of icir numerical order because otices already have been sent Additionally however the FCC eft the door open to any further evision in hearing schedules it may wish to make It said hear ngs would be held in the order in hearing notices were sent ut except as otherwise deter mined by the commission Re isions in priority arc to be
