Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 17, 1963, Mason City, Iowa Safety role by sheriffs story on page 3 HOME EDITION budget of billion would be highest ever for nation New role II for our Gen Mac He turns to sports field By RICHARD SPONG GlobeGazette EtJitorialV Research Bureau WASHINGTON Gen Doug las MacArthur will meet within a few days with representatives of the United States Track and Field federation and the Am ateur Athletic Union in an at tempt to arbitrate their dispute over control of amateur athletes Meantime the Seriate antitrust and monopoly subcommittee headed by Sen Estes Kefauver DTenn is looking into the con troversy The running battle between the athletic union and the track and field federation and the federations parent National Col legiate Athletic Association has been called a squabble I also has been dignified with the title of a power struggle I appears to be a little bit of both The fight would scarcely seem worth the attention of the Presi dent of the United States and a fivestar general were it no for the fact that participation of American athletes in inter national competition depend upon its resolution This include the Pan American games a Sao Paolo Brazil in April and the 1964 Olympic Games Tokyo The NCAA has the troops am the AAU has the mandate Tha would appear to be the gist o the controversy The AAU fo years has certified to the Inter national Olympic Committee th athletes to represent the Unite States This was a Jogical ar rangement in the days when th typical track and field athlet developed in competitio among athletic clubs But many years ago the co leges began sending their star into international competition The rivalry between the coache and the AAU dates at least back to 1928 when Gen MacArthur was president of the American Olympic Committee A year ago the NCAA established three fed erations to control track and field basketball and gym nastics The track federation now claims to represent more than 20000 high schools col leges and junior colleges and track and field clubs An understanding appeared to be reached last November in part through the good offices of Atty Gen Robert F Kennedy whereby the two groups would forget their differences long enough to permit US athletes to compete in international meets However as the Presi dent pointed out on Dec 12 even that coalition has been tangled by a whole group of conflicting interpretations This was the background then for the Presidents requesl that Gen MacArthur intervene as a mediator The choice was inspired The fivestar genera brings to his role not only vasl prestige but a lifelong interest in athletics experience with the Olympics and from his serv ice as superintendent of the United States Military Academj in 1919 and 1920 an under standing of the college point o view He undertakes the new assignment just as he observes his 83rd birthday A speedy settlement is io be hoped The college coaches arc withholding their athletes from AAUsponsored meets the in door season is just beginning unless the group holding the meet also gets sanctions from the NCAA In addition to furnishing the athletes colleges contribute heavily to the US Olympic Fund For their part the AAU com mittee views with alarm vigor ous recruitment and subsidiza tion of college athletes Recon ciling the rights and wrongs on both sides will not

Shaff plan of reap portionment which many Repub lican leaders have endorsed It balls for a House of 99 members one from each county and a pop ulationbased Senate of 58 mem bers Although the Shaff plan clear ly falls short of providing equality of representation Hughes said my objections are notwholly on this basis In my opinion this pro posal which would place the Sen ate or small house on population and the larger house on area sets up an unwise upside down bi cameral system under which one louse would frequently stalemate he other on important issues in the public interest Home Rule Hughes said the mongrel doc trine that cities and towns ca not function on even the mos trivial level without the expres or plainly implied authority o state law is entirely inconsistent with the democratic traditions of our republic He called for local control of strictly local matters Public Schools In addition to calling for in creased state aid Hughes urged continued efforts toward school district reorganization He en dorsed in principle the socalled minimum foundation plan and said the legislature should look to ward adopting it next session if money problems prevent it this time Economic Development Rejecting getrichquick Hughes for sub stantial strengthenfng of the Iowa Development Commission meas ures to permit communities to is sue revenue bonds for industrial sites and

which have been suggested in the past Liquor Control Hughes repeated his call for strictly controlled legal sale o liquor by the drink and declared My principal reason for taking this stand is that I

in putting aside divisive partisanship and working toward such major gov ernmental revisions as fouryear terms for elective officials a civil service plan for employes and empowering the governor to veto individual items of bills es pecially appropriations measures Hughes referred to appropria tions taxes revenues only in general terms saying those sub jects will be treated in his upcom ing

sailed into itormy congressional seas Thurs day There was a clamor that un less some spending was jettisoned its cargo of tax cuts would never reach port intact Much of a chorus of alarm about the budgets tically drowning out other com from Democrats with Republicans adding their de nunciations Ridiculous1 En tirely too big were some of the harsher comments of critics Many argued that the estimated In my budget message two weeks hence I will transmit to you my detailed views concerning the financial needs of the next biennium and suggested revenue measures to meet those needs Hughes told the legislators he will meet them in his office at any and all times in an atmos phere of good will and coopera tion He added The differences that divide us as partisans are small by comparison with the common ground that unites us as fellow lowans Hughes praised his predecessor Republican Norman Erbe as most gracious and cooperative in helping with an orderly transi ion in administrations

peacetime the anticipated deficit would be sec ond only to the billion in curred under former President Dwight D Eisenhower in 195859 But Kennedy argued a 196364 def icit is unavoidable even at present level of taxes The choice he said lies between accepting a chronic deficit of inertia due to inadequate economic growth and a temporary deficit caused by pro grams designed to generate the economy increase revenues and eventually achieve budget sur pluses The first type of deficit is sign of waste and weakness that he would oppose any dis tribution plan which penalizes lo cal districts
