NIIGHIORS VOL 97 Associated Presi and United Press InlernallonM full Wtrei I 7c i Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY JANUARY 17 1951 Tlili ol Iwo Kidnaped Tot Found Alive Unharmed One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE JCGLO 1HUO Sunday WOI AUKS Tuesday WTAD CJuhicy OJSO Thursday WSUI la City S10 Saturday But Lets Keep Our Shirts On K BOUT THE MOST DIFFICULT thing Americans arc callc on to do these days is to mainlai a perspective while the Russian are hurling objects into oule space With the help of gloom columnists and jaundiced com mentators it would be quite easj to conclude that we are in th last days of our Republic Thats one extreme the melancholy extreme The othc extreme is that of the pollyamn who goes tripping about among the daisies blithely oblivious o the Communist menace Of the two fallacious points of view i I were forced to make a choice Id take the morose extreme My reasoning in this would be that this distorted perspective would be more likely to get ac tion than the sweetnessandlighl fallacy which ignores the Com munist menace Nothing in he world and Im not exaggerating could be worse than being beaten in lifeanddeath struggle with the Kremlin Come what may we must keep our guard up And now that Ive made myself understood on that important point at the outset of my visit with you f can advance to this fortunate fact WE ARE NOT FORCED to accept either of these essential ly false extreme positions We can approach the matter with open mind and open eyes It helps to recall our frightin duced delirium of 16 months ago when the Russians lofted first Sputnik Woe is me chorused our gloom dispensers of press and wireless 2n our frenzied search for a whipping boy we concluded that the blame was on our educational system clear down to the kindergarten How utterly unwarranted and stupid our dismay had been was brought home in three months when as part of the International Geophysical Year program in which the Russians were assumed to be honestly participating we had our own manmade moon in orbit It wasnt as big as the Rus sian missiles but it was ever so much more ingenious vand infor

Session Opened atCapitol Agreement on Many Matters DES MOINES The 58lh Legislature convened Monday amid a bnckdrop of political riv alry The two top stale offices gov ernor and lieutenant governor arc held by Democrats and the Legislature is controlled by Re publicans The political spurring began be fore the session officially got un der way During the past weekend Gov licrsehel Loveless gave a pre view of what he would ask the Legislature in his inaugural ad dress Thursday Then the Re publicans issued a statement of policy PARADOXICALLY statehouse observers said a comparison of the proposals of the two parties showed surprising agreement on ia number of matters They agreed on the need of legislative reapporlionmcnt gov ernmental reorganization starting with making the Commerce Com mission

for whom nine days of anxiety iand agony ended early Monday with the safe recovery of her kid It helps to see things in pro portion to recall that a few short weeks ago one of our socalled moonrockets came within an eye lash of escaping the earths gravi tational pull and approaching the moon If that had happened no body would have run a fever when the Russians announced that their Sputnik was bound It would have been old stuff WHATS CLEAR beyond re sonable doubt is that our scicn fists have the same knowho as thai possessed by the Russian and the Germans they have 1e cruited for their rocketry pro gram What we havent been will ing lo do up to now and mayb we should now give serious con sideration to the course is to ap proach space rocketry on a eras program basis as we did in th case of the ABomb in Worli War II Thats precisely what the Krem Jin has done The people cried ou for decent housing and a palatabli diet and Khrushchev gave therr spulniks instead Once before in answer to that same plea this was under the Russian rankandfile got a gaudy system of subways in Moscow and Len ingrad In short these crash pro grams have proved an effective diversionary tactic to keep the world from seeing what a dreary hopeless life the people of Russia really have except for the larly fatcals I understand the expres sion red had its or igin in Russia centuries ago back in the days of
