Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - August 26, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news these Days by George e. Sokolsky copyright 1958, King features Syndicate inc the Rickover imbroglio i there is always somebody in the j armed services who is More con i corned about status than stature j uniforms discipline obedience Are i important in any Branch of a regimented service but when a a j Tion is engaged in a War of brains i the Martinet can and often does clog the works. We know about the cases of general Hilly Mitchell of general James Gavin or Admiral Hyman Rickover the people have Long forgotten about the humiliation of general Douglas Macarthur. Rut there must be thousands of instances of Brilliant minds in the armed services who have been held Down by brass who will not give an Inch in the pre i genre of Superior intelligence. Then there is a terrific noise in the press and the president of the United states intervenes As he did in the Rickover matter giving the Admiral the High Honor of representing the president at the ceremonies for the Quot Nautilus Quot in new York. O o o i the Navy particularly suffers from this rigidity Back in tile Days when the master of a ship was in effect Sovereign when his position v so distinguished and separate that Quot the Captain always ate such matters As a Little More Gold on a uniform were of primary importance today the builder of a better submarine of a Superior rocket of a new kind of warfare is very much More important. The Battle ship is a discarded weapon it could happen that All naval War hereafter will be under sea. This i makes such a Genius As Admiral j Rickover invaluable to the United states. He knows How to build atom powered submarines. He also cuts across every form of red tape which suppresses brains. He has a so organized his work that a com i mender might work under a lieutenant. For what he deals with is j the mind not appearance. The j absent minded professor would be court martial led for pouring soup j on his uniform but that same professor might be Able to handle mathematical formulae so skilfully that he could develop that one Little Gadget that would save thousands of lives in Hie next year. Oto Rickover wants that professor to work for him and so far As he is j concerned the absent minded one can Bathe in soup or have his egg i on his Mustache or forget where j he put his hat. Nothing matters to j Rickover but results and whoever produces the results is a big Man to him to avoid getting All messed up in red tape. Admiral Rickover has managed to hold two jobs one in the Navy the other in the atomic Energy commission. In the j latter Post uniforms Are not worn and the work is done with Freedom that it might have in private Indus j try. I vol. 80, no. 201 it. Pleasant. Iowa tuesday evening August 20, 1958 Quot by by Carrier soc per week by mail $7.50 per year asks Power to close schools request by eau bus to be granted first souvenir badge Sale May r Wade i Beth is shown about to receive the first souvenir badge of til 1958 old settlers and threshers reunion from William safer president of the association. I joking on Are members of the committee Richard Vavroch a the extreme left and Richard Kiefson. The first year souvenir buttons Are being sold to help finance the 1958 reunion they May in retained As souvenirs or May be exch need tor 1958 membership badges. There is no additional Cost. The badges Are being offered in Many local stores at a Dollar. Boy scouts Are assisting with the project and also with the distribution of the old threshers program books troop "7 under scoutmaster Dan Parker is assisting in preparing the cards displaying the souvenir buttons and in placing them in stores. In previous years the membership badge sales have totalled around $1,000. With tile assistance of More persons the committee Hopes to double that amount. Vandalism at local Harlan school endorse Effort to bring Hall of Fame to area there Are Many reasons Why some of the brass in the Navy Dis it like Rickover. For one reason he1 has managed to get Congress to support his submarine program in spite of the Navy brass who still want surface ships just As that a cavalry once wanted to retain the horse Rickover like most Brilliant minds is not bogged Down by what the Lazy of mind and body like to Call team work. He has made the Battle for a weapon the atom powered submarine his life work. I secondly Rickover lacks the kind of sociability that is customary in i the Navy and that really added to diplomatic strength in far stations when amenities were still very important. Nowadays we Are on the qui Vive against a probable enemy and we Are in a race of new weapons and for new strategic and tactical methods. The handsome naval officer with Superb manners and just the right approach to everything is not to be discarded but he is no longer As important As a naval designer As a physicist or a chemist or a tailoring mind such As Rickover a which can put a lot of things together in just the right place. It is a new kind of War and a new kind of world and those who cannot adjust to the chances will fall by the Wayside. Whoever snubbed Admiral Hyman Rickover by not inviting him to the White House when the commander of the a Nautilus Quot was honoured was a fool. Or did not Hurt Ric Kover who went about his business he Hurt the United states which is everybody s business. The president has corrected this but it should not have Hap med.
