HOME EDITION VOL LXIV Associated Press United Prtti International Full Wiro 7c a Copy MASON MONDAY JULY 21 Tfali Paper of Two Immediate Summit Parley Ruled Out One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE KCLO 1300 pm Simday WOI Ames CM pm Tuesday WTAD Qulncy U30 pm Thursday WSU1 la Oily 910 pm Saturday Has Democracy No imagination TN THE PAST 15 YEARS Ive repeated numerous times a challenge based on the World Calendar proposal Ive chal lenged any openminded person to acquaint himself with the plan without being for it Up to the presentI havent had one legiti mate taker One calendar manufacturer did write me with this question What are you trying to do ruin our business And another spokesman for a religious sect which naively assumes there has been an unbroken cycle of 7day weeks since Creation took ex ception to the proposed calendar But up to this moment no per without preconceived preju dice has accepted my challenge And so I extend it again And again I spell out my specifica tion that the objector to the World Calendar be openminded as well as openeyed Im not interested in any old warmedover preju dices The fact is that the world at this moment has before it an op portunity to make as big an ad vance in the science of time reckoning as the Romans did when they turned to the Julian calendar or as our forebears die in 1582 when they abandoned the Julian calendar for the Gregorian calendar now in almost universa use THE PLAN is now in the hands of the United Nations It has the enthusiastic backing of some o the socalled backward nations of the world And who do you think is balking action on it Whos delaying its adoption You may not believe it but noneother than the United States of America or more specifical ly our State Department Bu more about that later Now for i time lets consider some of th basic shortcomings in the calen dar which in its basic form ha been used for 2000 years First and foremost our calen dar is never the same from yea to year It has 28 different kind of month and 14 different kind of year Next months have irregula numbers of days They may hav four or five Saturdays Sundays Mondays and so on throughou the week The number of week days or workdays if you pre fer within the months varj from 24 to 27 a difference of 12V per cent for those who are try ing to maintain statistical or busi ness records AP Pliotofax KEY IN WHITE line Cliett 19 Washington DC poses with a locked 10pound chain wrapped a r o un d her pretty neck She says the chain will stay there until a dispute with the government over a ranch owned by her mother and an aunt is settled The key she said has been mailed to Presi dent Eisenhower When a bill is passed Miss Cliett added letting us keep the whole ranch then well ask the Presi dent to unlock the chain US Budget in Red by Billion WASHINGTON govern ment said Monday the national budget was in the red by 000000 at the end of the fiscal year last June 30

involved The US embassy reported that Lebanese rebels who have been sniping at US military planes also fired at an Egyptian airliner attempting to land at Beirut day U S Marines joined Lebanese army

instructions from the Iraqi Foreign Office in Baghdad to announce Iraqs de termination not to repudiate any agreement lo which Iraq is a part T h c western oil interests in Iraq will be safeguarded

ay is perfect symbol of war that is no a war and peace that certainly i not peace It would be faintly ridiculou except for two facts First like events through th whole Moslem Syria Egypt Morocco Tunis is Arab nationalism fanned by Gamal Abdel Nasse into rebellion against the estab lished order SECOND if looks very muc as though the United States is i the position of a man beating pillow All the military force can d here is drive the revolutionarie underground They might dL perse for the time being But a soon as the pressure goes oi they would start over again There arc Marine positions a ovcr the place here said a ser geant who fought in both Worl War II and Korea They can see anything and they aren fighting anybody Theyre sittin around with nothing to do Hov long are they going to keep u here THAT IMPACT is the ver heart of the question The Unite States and Britain have take action in the Mideast and per haps somehow the situation wi stabilize itself so the troops ca be withdrawn But the incredible conlradk tions of a war that isnt a wa and a peace that isnt a peac multiply on every hand And th strident almost screaming voic of Gamal Abdei Nasser come regularly over

offer was an obstacle 3 Housa press secretary James C Hagerty said consultations among the al lies have started and a US draft reply is in the hands of the other major powers Until these consul tations end Hagerty said would have nothing to say about a summit meeting Premier Khrushchev asked for a fivepower meeting including India in Geneva Switzerland on Tuesday Administrative leaders took the view that it was essentially a propaganda maneuver such an early meeting being out of the they ruefully admit ted that it was a maneuver of force and imagination Washing ton has not been able to produce such during this crisis So far the West has been losing the pub lic opinion battle in much of world f KHRUSHCHEV appeared to be vulnerable to counterattack on only one point He proposed to
