Week End Drive
Puts Fund Way
The 1955 March of Dimes chalked
up a record for Gulf County under
the leadership of Campaign Direc-
tor Otis Pyle. The drive gathered
in more than 25,000 dimes for a
total of over $2,500.00. Pyle stated
that all returns have not been
made, but that cash in hand totals
over the $2,500.00 figure.
The goal for the County was set
at $1,500.00 but the. local chapter
was in debt some $2,200.00 for pa-
tients from this area now.receiving
treatment from polio centers. Pyle
said that he secretly hoped that the
drive would accumulate enough
money to erase this debt and put
up a small back-log for future dates.
'Starting the last week of the
campaigng, the drive was short of
its goal by about $200.00 with only
a few more activities to be carried
out. At this stage it appeared that
the drive would barely go over the
goal. Last 'Saturday afternoon,

IKE TAKES COMMAND
While the House of Representatives, after
three hours of debate, voted 409 to 3 to give
President Eisenhower blank check emergency
powers in the defense of Formosa, a handful of
senators, late in the week, were still striving to
take some of the bloom off the first independent
and truly American action in the Orient since
Douglas MacArthur's troops drove the Reds the
length of North Korea to the banks of the sacred
It should be noted, perhaps, that of the
three representatives voting "no", Republican
Timothy V. Sheehan, of Illinois, protested that
the President's request did not go far enough.
Resistance of the Senate viewers-with-alarm be-
gan to crumble when Minnesota's Hubert Hum-
phrey, after the President's statement that he
alone and not Chiang Kai-shek would give the
orders, indicated he would forsake objectors
Morse, Kefauver and Flanders.
But, while Washington waved its arms -
with approval of the President's request a fore-
gone conclusion F-86 Sabrejets of the Eigh-
teenth Fighter-Bomber Wing hopped to For-
mosa from Okinawa and the Philippines and
long-range jet bombers were expected to move
up to "forward bases", presumably Okinawa, the
Philippines or Japan. Addition of a fifth carrier,
the mighty Saratoga, and the cruiser Pittsburgh
beefed up the Seventh Fleet.
And in the meantime UN action on a cease-
fire in the battle of Formosa Straight is hanging
fire presumably because the US position is
that Congress should vote on the pending reso-
lution first, and the President would like to see
Senate action on the treaty with Chiang now up
Nor does there seem any great enthusiasm
for UN action. Speaking of a possible truce,
President Eisenhower told his press conference
a week ago that he would like to see the UN
exercise its good offices, but didn't know whe-
ther it could do anything. In his subsequent
message to Congress, he referred to UN action
as "appropriate" but said "the situation has be-
come sufficiently critical to impel me, without
awaiting action by the United Nations" to ask
authority of Congress "to improve the prospects
The situation is not only critical, but too

WHERE ARE OUR BRAINS?
There seems to be some question these days
whether, after all, the pen is mightier than the
sword. But we have it right from the Pentagon
that the sliderule is mightier than the bayonet.
Assistant Defense Secretary Donald A.
Quarles tells us that Russia will turn out an es-
timated 50,000 engineers this year (twice the
number that will graduate from US colleges and
universities), and an equal number of "subpro-
fessional" engineers and highly qualified tech-
"The critical shortage of engineers and
scientists in America," says Mr. Quarles, in the
current issue of Planes, official publication of
the Aircraft Industries Association of America,
"is potentially a greater threat to our national
security than are any weapons known to be in
the arsenals of aggressor nations."
Since we are well aware of Russia's progress
in nuclear weapons, this qualified authority
could hardly have put his warning in stronger
terms. But, to make matters worse, if that is
possible, Mr. Quarles goes on to say: "Since 1950
there has been a steady decrease in the number
of technical graduates from US school swlhich
has now levelled off at less than half the 1950
figure The need for engineering scientists
and technicians has been particularly serious in
aviation, where research and development de-
mands have multiplied at an almost unbelievable
Mr. Quarles does not undertake to explain
why "this alarming decline has occurred at a
time when advances in technology have impos-
ed mounting requirements for technical person-
nel". But he points out as a result that our
national policy, "an air power program designed
to assure qualitative superiority over an indef-
inite period of years" is in great peril.
