Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 13, 1957, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Home MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THE NEWSPAPER THAT MAKES ALL NORTH IOWANS NEIGHBORS HOME EDITION VOL LXIII Associated Press United Press Full Seven Cents a Copy MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY MARCH 13 1957 This Paper Consists ot Two NO in U N Offered New MidEast Plan Ike Senate Demos to Unveil Economy Drive Tht World Around Us Yugoslavia Looks Like Good Land Numbtr 99 EDITORS is one of a series of daily reports by our editor on a trip by air around the world How people live and how they feel toward America are more em phasized by Mr Hall than scenic features By W EARL HALL OVER ZAGREB From three miles before the season for planting and with some of the ground covered with snow Yugoslavia looks like t h e good It looks more promising to me than the socalled Promised Land Moses looked out upon from a peak high in the Moab Mountains some 31 centuries ago This is an overall impression gained on a four and a half hour flight mostly over the land of Tito en route from Athens to Vienna For a time we paralleled the Blue Danube near the point where it empties its murky water its blue only In the eye of a romanticist into the Black Sea At times we could peer over into Bulgaria Romania and even Hun gary supposedly obscured by an Iron Curtain Our plane is a Sa bena Belgian craft of the DC6 class Keen Disappointment One of the disappointments of our odyssey equaled only b our failure to g e t into Iraq famed Baghdad has been our inability to land in Belgrade the capital and cultural center o Titos Yugoslavia It would have been a return visit and I wantec to check on how much progress his special type of applied Marx ism has made in five years Specifically I had in mind a great shell of a building at the outskirts of Belgrade near the airport serving that city It was to have been the seat of govern ment for the nation But it never got finished Work had been stopped right in the middle of the project Two Theories There were two going theories One was that Tito had run out of money the other was that there had been some flaws in the con struction which made completion unwise I h a d hoped to learn which was correct For five years this shell of a structure has sym bolized in my mind the essentia sterility of Marxism b o t 1 Getting back to the land itself I think I could pay it no higher compliment than to suggest tha in some respects until we ap proached the mountains of Aus tria it reminded me of Iowa The thing most lacking of course i the checkerboard effect achieved in my home state by our onemile sections divided by roads Here the roads are few and far be tween Live in Villages As is true almost everywhere else in the world except the United States those who till the soil live in villages fanning out to their daily tasks from their communities Its a throwback to the days when communal life meant security against thieving marauders The idea of a family living on its own acres would ap pear to be almost uniquely Ameri can The real purpose of this and I may just as well be honest about it is tolet it be known that Ive looked down upon an other country And it isnt the first time Ive resorted to this very trick Once I flew the length of Switzerland past Mt Blanc and close enough to the reach out and shake hands At this moment I suspect I have the distinction of being the only professed world traveler in ex istence who hasnt set foot on Switzerland Coincidence At this very moment our planes wheels are touching the Vienna airport adding one more country Awtria to my string But slill no Switzerland f AP Wirephoto SODERQUISTS SANITY Roy F Soderquist sits between his mother and his attorney Jens Grpthe after a

Light snow was predicted for northern Iowa Wednesday night and Thursday with occasional rain forecast for southern Iowa Indications were that the precipi tation would be rather light end ing by Friday

motion to recon sider The Senate finally passed the bill on Feb 26 after the House in the meantime had approved the measure Returned to House After Senate passage the bill was returned to the House for concurrence in an amendment but before the House could act the Senate recalled the bill be cause a motion to reconsider the vote on passage had been filed by Sen Joe Coleman The Senate voted Wednesday 31 17 to reconsider its vote for pas sage of the bill It then voted to table the measure despite a plea by its principal sponsor Sen Wil liam Tate RMason City that it be further amended and passed once more Sen Coleman in urging his mo tion to reconsider declared I feel this bill is one in which the State of Iowa should set the example for the rest of the na tion Maybe we are the only state in the 48 that does not permit selling cigarettes by vending machine But the only proponents of this bill in my area are those who in the past have been behind the pinball machines and other gambling Defends Bill Tate replied that he had filed an amendment which would re move this bogeyman entirely from this Some opponents of the meas ure Tate said seem to feel there is something sinister some thing bad something of the bogeyman sneaking up on you in the bill We have vending machines for other things such as candy and Tate said This is really a simple bill It would only permit selling cigarettes the same way candy and peanuts are sold If you are afraid youngsters will get cigarettes theyre get ting them anyway Most young sters dont have to go any farther for them than their mothers purse When you go up to the Pearly Gates and St Peter asks you what your qualifications are arc you going say I voted agains he cigarette vending machin bill Sen Weber said he couldn1 feel bad about
