newspaper that mokes all North lowans GAZETTE HOME EDITION MASON IOWA MONDAY DECEMBER 18 1961 neighbors 7e 3 Paper Consists of Two SectionsSection No M One Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE WOI v Decorlitmoi Ames Pm Sun IU5pm Sun Dallas is something of a topsy city TEX IS ONE OF those places thats hard to believe even when youre look ing at it It has a distinctiveness suggestive of San Francisco Singapore Sydney and New Or leans But let me hasten to make it clear that Dallas is like none of the four places named One impression I gained from a couple visits there one with in the month is that its pretty much a jerrybuilt metropolis that like Topsy it just growed moreover that to quite some extent this im provisation rule is still Iftheres a longterm piaster plan it hasnt as yet begun to impress itself on the casual visitor which is what of course As a part of the plan for pre venting the downtown what is usually referred to as the loop district in a large city has begun aiming a network of high speed arterials in that direction Its an attempt to head off the deterioration that has come to the established business sections in St Louis and many another American city You hear from those who use these express ways that they werent con structed in the most strategic locations But things like that seem to worry citizens of the Dallas nick name very much If they cover they made a mistake they wont even bat an eye about starting pv e r again Thats the way theyare Texans used large stakes to playing for Theres a spirited rivalry be tween Dallas and Fort Worth some 40 miles to the west But that rivalry Ive concluded after my contacts with both places is generated and nur tured more in Fort Worth than in Dallas Fort Worth has a cer tain rangecountry flavor about Dallas seems bent on shedding this characteristic and moving in the direction of things cul tural Besides Dallas is about twice her next door neighbor The real rivalry as far as Dallas is I think this feeling is shared by many Texans who dont livein either with Houston Where as Fort Worth savors of graz ing and livestock Houstons central pride and interest is in ARRIVE IN FLORIDA President his wife leave the West Palm Beach Fla airport after arriving from their exuberant Latin Ameri can goodwill trip Mrs Kennedy was a big hit of the jaunt as crowds in Venezuela and Colombia shouted Look Look and What a beauty A Heavy cold President has trip souvenir PALM BEACH Fla Kennedy suf fering from a heavy cold stopped in Palm Beach Monday instead of returning directly to Washington from his weekend trip to Latin America Press secretary Pierre Salinger said Kennedys present plan s to leave for Washington Tuesday morning Salinger told newsmen that the decision to stay over in Palm Beach was made Monday morning en route to Florida from a refueling stop at Ramey Air Force Base in Puerto Rico Salinger used the description heavy in describing the chief executiveslillness y The Air Force jet carrying the presidential partyhad been cheduled here only long enough to let off Mrs Kennedy who was to joinher children Palm Beach for Christmas Kennedy had intended to get with them on Friday on his return from a meeting vith British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan in Bermuda Salingers announcement that Kennedys present plan is to continue on to Washington Tues iiunai puut dim interest is in i its spectacular industrial against the United irninnmnrtt if 1t juotates and an overwhelming re ception at Bogota Colombia re assured Kennedy Bad weather to hit Iowa again Bad weather has taken dead aim on Iowaagain The weather bureau predicted a cold wave warning for all of thestate by late Tuesday and forecast light snow for all sections in the next 2436 hours It has become the Southlands greatest city by far Dallas has both an interest and a pride too in this direction But this interest in industry re tail and wholesale trade insur ance companies and banking is tinctured with concern about cultural activities such as opera symphony orchestras painting and architecture For miles around in any di rection because Dallas is sit uated on generally flat land de spite the Trinity River which bisects the community without doing much for it one can see the downtown Dallas skyline Lately at the behest of aviation authorities a Dallas bank was induced to chop a mere 10 stories off a projected sky scraper In the light of the pronounced spaciousness of presentday Dal las and the possibilities for growth in all directions its a bit difficult to understand this emphasis on vertical architec ture One just about has to con clude that Dallasonrans or Dal lasites being Texans like things tall as well as big Just about everybody goes to Dallas with some preconceived notions about that famous Nie manMarcus department store Its almost as well known as Macys in New York Marshall Fields in Chicago and Wana makcrs in Philadelphia Any
