Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 19, 1957, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Doily Newspaper Edited for Home I MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE T H I NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL LXIII Associated Press and United Press Full Lease Wires Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY JANUARY 19 1W7 This Paper Consists of Two One a RussEconomyNot in Same Class With

Editor Hall and his traveling companion Willis Fatten expect to return to Mason City By W EARL HALL VAINIKKALA Finland No more shaking and quaking over Communist Russia for me One weeks visit in its three principal cities not long enough I readily admit to make me an ex pert has removed any such disposition for all time to come My tour has been doubt about it In Kiev Moscow and Leningrad I had the services of what was called an in but thats just a weasel word for Wonders of Marxism Ive seen all the wonders of Marxism I was supposed to see But they havent been half as revealing or educational as the things Ive seen on my own through the cracks and around the edges of the picture on display Russias economy simply doesnt belong in the same league with ours What I strongly suspected about the basic character of Com munism on the basis of my contacts with its two forms five years ago Titoism in Yugoslavia and Stalinism in East Germany has progressed into a considered judgment these past eight days Im ready to say unqualifiedly that applied Marxism under either the Moscow or the Belgrade label is a counterfeit and a phony that it contains within itself the seeds of its own destruc tion Nowhere including Russia does it have the sanction of those whom it enslaves Two comparisons Russian Communism can be made to look good by two types of rigged comparison 1 Its better than the Czarism it supplanted 40 years if and only if you assume that the Czarism of that time would have stood still 2 The standard of living here is undoubtedly higher than in Indonesia India and other countries of Southeast Asia but thats a reflection of Natures works not Communisms One clay last week I visited a collective farm where 300 work ers were doing approximately what 25 Iowa farm families would do on the same acreage The cattle hogs and chickens were in heated pavilions but the workers were living in the unpainted strawcovered houses occupied by tenant peasants under land lordism back in 1917 A haif dozen huge statebuilt apartment buildings in Moscow have the external appearance of a great American insurance companys home office Theyre occupied by the favored few Theres no secret about that But the average Ivan and Katrina and their brood live in what would be set down as slumconditions anywhere in the free world In both Moscow and Leningrad there are subway systems which in elegance of stations and modern rolling stock would have no superior and probably no equal in the world This mode of transportation has had complete priority over such minor matters as food and housing My efforts to inspect a typical factory failed But every clay in my meanderings I could scrutinize a typical industrial product the Russian automobile The de luxe models coining off the as sembly lines now are copies of the American passenger cars of Avon Lake Pilot Killed in Crash The World Around Us i Vietnam Is Pleasant Surprise 1 Number 54 By W EARL HALL pHNOM PENH went

DES MOINES A fiveman Air National Guard board Sat urday began an investigation of a crash of an Air Guard F84E Thunder jet near the Des Moines Municipal Airport Friday night which killed the pilot Maj Wil liam F Griffin 38 of nearby Avon Lake Shortly after sunrise Saturday guard crews removed Maj Grif fins body from the planes burned fuselage where it was found aft er the crash The pilot a decorated bomber pilot in the European theater in World War II had just completed a series of three touchandgo practice landings at the airport His plane headed northwest aft er the last takeoff and began to circle when it crashed in rolling pasture land about a quarter mile west of the Air Guard hang er at the airport Too Low Lt Col Roger W Gilbert dep uty wing commander of the 132nd Fighter Interceptor Wing of the IowaNebraska Air National Guard said Griffin apparently was too low to parachute He said flameout landings are practiced to train pilots in landing jet aircraft after an en

12 Carol Ann 10 and Dan Earl 6 and his parents Mr and Mrs Earl O Griffin Avon Lake Ian 20 Inaugural Crowd Gathers WASHINGTON A mighty throng of Americans poured into the capital Saturday to join in celebrating the second inaugura tion of President Eisenhower An estimated persons were expected to witness or take part in the many events planned for the next four days But the overall Rttendance wasnt ex pected to be as big as in 1953 when Eisenhower entered the White House and the Republicans resumed government power after 20 years High point of the long inaugural weekend will be the public oath taking by Eisenhower and Vice President Nixon in front oi the Capitol Buiiding on Monday Then will come the traditional inaugur al parade from the Capitol to the White House and four glittering inaugural balls that night Big Names Things get going in earnest Sat urday with receptions by various Republican and other groups and an inaugural festival Saturday night featuring big names in the entertainment world On tap for Sunday is a recep tion for state governors and an inaugural concert at Constitution Hall The festivities will wind up Tuesday with the last few state receptions The Weather Bureau said it ex pects colder than normal weather Monday with a chance of rain or snow late in the day But the President and Vice President will be sheltered from the cold in the first of two inau gural ceremonies They will take the oath of of fice Sunday in the White House in the presence of 59 members of their Eisenhowers brother Edgar apparently will miss it The Tacoma at 15 years ago

Leningrad to Helsinki on a Russian express train is taking 15 hours And its miles across Siberia An afternoon spent at the enormous new plant of Moscow University high above the Moscow river on Lenin Hills left me with the distinct impression that much which passes for high level technological education and engineering in Russia would be rated as mere trade school training in our country A mammoth recreational center within a U bend of the Mos cow River below the University with stadium seating where the 1964 Olympic Games may be held is a symbol of Red Russias accent on physical development

Peoples Republic resolutely condemn this policy of the United States They arc prepared to continue to give any necessary support to the peoples of the Near and Mid Program Needed WASHINGTON Iff V i c

their home grounds DownGrading Snagged Stalins benign countenance still beams down on vou from every airport terminal and other public places His downgrad ing quite obviously has struck a snag Every guide has his story learned I heard it from several It runs thus Stalin was undoubtedly a great man He did many wonder ful things for the Russian people But now weve advanced far enough along the road to true Communism to have a collective leadership rather than a oneman dictatorship We shall never have to submit to it Want to bet Religions status is just a bit difficult to appraise Atheism is still at the core of Communism but for practical reasons theres a disposition to be tolerant with those who seem to want their religious Sunday as a day of rest is officially recog imcd Christmas is

Ive been seeing overhead Both the fighters and the bombers have impressed me and my colleague as being on par with any known to us anywhere in Ihe world While Im persuaded that Russians couldnt and wouldnt support a long war they could 1 think throw a terrific Sunday We have no choice we must keep strong militarily If youve guessed that my feeling toward the Russian people is one of hostility youre entirely wrong Ive been treated with the utmost friendliness and consideration They are an essentially kind people and deserving of ever so much better govern ment than theyve ever had Russians
