Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - May 20, 1961, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the Homt MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE HOME EDITION VOL n The newspaper that makes all North I o wans neighbors ind United Press Internationa Full Leise Wirei MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY MAY 20 1941 7c Copy This Paper Consists of Two SectionsSection NO m Marriage truly a business A sound approach By DONALD I ROGERS New York Herald Tribunt News Strvice NEW YORK About this time of year a great many young r couples are rushing the final preparations for their June wed dings and despite the problems with guest lists and shopping forays a number of them man age to write this department seeking counsel on their pros pective financial programs These are the smart ones Theyll do all right these kids because theyre approaching the family budget in an orderly manner The womens magazines are jammed with information on how to buy proper clothes for a wedding how to run a suc cessful reception and even on how to adjust psychologically to marriage but rarely if ever do you see advice on how to run a marriage on a financially sound basis Its as though money werent the transcending reason for most marital prob lems IF I COULD do it all over again the first thing Id do would be to make my wife my business partner Id make it clear from the outset that my role is to earn the money and hers is to be custodian of it Id ask her to pay all the bills dole out all of the monthly repayments and yes by golly keep track of the whole opera tion so that she and I together could work out the tax schedule on Form 1040 next April Id expect her to save some too and in time if shes a suc cessful saver to work with me in selecting some investments such as good common stocks Since shed be the beneficiary Id want her to figure out just how much insurance I should place on my life and just how much I should increase it as my income increases and the size of our family grows AND SHE of course would pay the insurance premiums out of the money Id earn and turn over for custodianship Thats partnership real part nership and wed both be lucky because neither of us in any other line of endeavor would ever have partners wed be in love with If it sounds as though Id make a business enterprise out o f marriage thats what I in tend it to mean Ive seen too many letters from unhappy people because of the unbusi ness like approach to marriage Two cannot live as cheaply as one and two cannot live as cheaply after they acquire chil dren than they can when they first start out in life The arti cles which say otherwise are usually written by old maids bachelors or women who live on high alimony payments FIRST OFF Id wantto draw a will and Id want my wife to draw one too In them we would have to take into consideration what would happen to our pos sessions and accumulation of wealth or property if we died in a common accident such as happens every weekend on our highways Further wed have to consider what would happen to our possessions in the event one of us predeceased the other Next Id want us both to be gin to plan for my retirement Not because Im lazy and look longingly toward the day when I get the gold watch but be cause Im a realist about our economy I realize that because of taxes and a gargantuan re distribution of wealth by num erous social forces the chances that I will become a millionaire are mighty remote So Id start out with my new bride planning for my eventual independence Thats a bet ter word than retirement and a far better concept than Social Security Thats what Id do if I could go back to the beginning Thats what Id tell any young folks heading toward the altar and who havent given much thought yet to those ugly little en velopes with the cellophane win dows bills those ugly little tnvelopes ruin more marriages than any other factor NELSON AP Fhotofax FAMILY TO EN David Nelson 24 son of Ozzie and Harriet Nelson and a performer on the familys

How will it go By JOHN HIGHTOWER WASHINGTON Kennedys meeting with Pre mier Khrushchev at Vienna next month may be the first of a series of USSoviet summit level talks extending over the years of the Kennedy adminis tration How the relationship between the two men develops will de pend much on the impressions they make upon each other in their conference in the Austrian capital June 3 and 4 But it is already apparent that Kennedys whole approach to talking with Khrushchev is quite different from that which has prevailed in other US administrations since World War II THE CENTRAL element in Kennedys attitude appears to be a conviction that top level talks with the leader of the Communist bloc are desirable and may be useful in easing EastWest tensions provided the atmosphere in which they are held is reasonably favorable to calm discussion of outstanding world issues Some administra tion officials now say that such meetings should be regarded as normal and should be consid ered worthwhile even if they fail to produce spectacular posi tive results Already there is speculation in diplomatic quarters that if the Vienna discussions go smoothly Khrushchev may in vite Kennedy to visit the Soviet UnionThe center of this specu lation is Geneva where Secre tary of State Dean Rusk met Friday with Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A Gromyko THE TWO foreign ministers talked over plans for the Vienna meeting as well as the problem of Laos which is the subject of a 14nation conference at Gene va The substance of their ex change was not disclosed but press dispatches quoted diplo matic sources at Geneva as pointing out that Khrushchev visited the United States in Sep tember 1959 and owes an invita ion to an American president to visit the Soviet Union During most of the Eisenhow er administration the former resident and the late secretary of state John Foster Dulles re sisted summit conferences pres sures on the ground there must irst be assurance of positive agreement lest failure to reach agreement at the summit should ncrease EastWest tension President Harry S Truman JFK MR K ad met with dictator Joseph talin at Berlin at the end of the iaT in Europe but during the st of the Truman administra on there was no enthusiasm in Vashington for further summit essions EISENHOWER LATER modi ed his own position and the olicies which he and Dulles had out toward a summit Beet growers in parade pass the sugar WASHINGTON ff Sugar beet growers paraded Friday before the House Agriculture Com Thair unanimous message in the words of one of them was Please pass the sugar Domestic growers want larger quotas of the strictly controlled U S sugar mar ket Those who have none want some Other groups want to build more mills to process the beets Because the United States cut off Cubas quota of 33 mil lion tons last year there it a scramble to fill that gap For eign countries that have no quotas such as Brazil and evtn Franca and India want some countries that have quotas want bigger ones The reason the competition is so fierce is that the United States pays a premium price for sugar about a ton above the world market price This system was set up back in 1934 primarily to protect the domestic growers who could not compote at the world price Committee Chairman Harold D Cooky DNC has said he doesnt favor increasing the domestic growers share He said American people might get tired of paying a ton premium if the grow ers keep on being so greedy Rep Charles B Hoeven R lowa ranking Republican oh the committee said in a state ment growers can expect no action until the administra tion makes its views known Therefore I invite Secretary Orville L Freeman to do so without delay Hoeven said the Cuban fi asco has tightened Communist control of Cuba the nation we have historically depended upon for approximately one third of our sugar supply There is no valid reason why we should redistribute the Cuban quota all over the world when American farmers can do the job conference in the summer of 1959 in part at least as a result of Khrushchevs threats and pressures to change the status of West Berlin Having met the Soviet premier in the 1955 sum mit conference at Geneva Ei senhower invited him to visit the United States The two men conferred at Camp David Md with the result that Khrushchev shelved for a while his threats a g a inst Berlin
