CHAPPAQUA FOUGHT AND WON
Christian Science Monitor
A month ago a committee of seniors at the
high school of suburban Chappaqua, New York,
.asked that their parents served highballs and
cocktails to them at the annual postcommence-
ment party. The reason? The hope that this
might make less attractive the past practice of
an all-night tour of night clubs and roadhouses.
The proposal betrayed a tragic condition
and presented parents and the community with
Sa cruel dilemma. As The Monitor put is at the
Whether to attempt "control" in the
confidence, perhaps, of a limited victory
or to stand on a moral line and risk a de-
Community discussion was lively and ear-
nest. Churches heard from their pulpits pleas
to parents not to compromise, not to dignify
drinking and lower themselves to playing bar-
tender to their own and others' children.
The party came off a couple of nights ago.
There was extra good music, with special en-
tertainment. The youngsters danced all night,
b:-eakfasted at a local country club, and only
soft drinks were served.
If any of these teen-agers sneaked off in
search of a more "grown-up" excitement at the
hot spots it has not yet been reported. Nor
would it have been possible to report so soon
the later effect on these youngsters' lives had
their parents by example said to them: "Yes,
it smart to drink."

.> \ We hope that before Congress goes any
At^ her with its revolt against President Eisen-
Shwer's advice on defense it will make sure it
O-"l clrsing-th-dM--is y.eifia train is com-
.ia.. The Senate vote'to add ahiiost a billion dol-
lars to the Air Force budget has been explained
partly as a Democratic move to make an elec-
tion-year issue. But much more is involved.
The action here hinged on a section of the
defense budget which has. a decisive bearing or
foreign policy. Mr. Eisenhower had vigorously
appealed for the administration's mutual secur-
,ty bill as a most effective measure for strong
thening American defenses. He argued that
aid to allies and support of free governments
have great military value for the United States.
He had also questioned estimates that the
United States is in danger of falling behind in
strategic air power. He pointed out that sucn
power cannot be figured simply by the numbers
of long-range bombers or by progress in devel-
oping ballistic missiles. The Soviet Union is
compelled to rely chiefly on such weapons be-
cause it lacks overseas bases and the allies, plus
sea power, required to support them. But the
United States does possess these things, and its
strategic air power can be built most efficiently
on a -combination of home and foreign-based
Congress appears ready to reject both con-
cepts. The House cut more than a billion dol-
lars out of the aid bill; the Senate has added
nearly as much to the budget for the avowed
purpose of getting more long-range bombers
and ballistic missiles. Before the two mea-
sures are completed some changes may be made,
particularly toward restoring part of the cut in
aid. But Congress appears determined to launch
out on a new course of military-diplomatic poli-
cy which would be dangerous if carried far.
This course tends toward less reliance on
and less support for allies overseas. While not
yet developed into an isolationist degree of with-
drawal, it holds the danger of starting a vicious
cycle a progressive pulling back from allies
which would impel them to a progressive pull-
ing back. Its effects would quickly be felt in
NATO already struggling to keep its vigor
against the disarming and disintegrating smiles
The big bombers have always had a dra-
matic appeal. And air enthusiasts who painted
pictures of easy and quick atomic victories have
struck a popular note. The fact that the long-
range planes need no foreign bases or arrange-
ments with allies has made them congenial to all
isolationist opinion. But heretofore most of the
Democrats and one wing of the Republicans in
Congress have seen and opposed the fallacies
of this oversimplified view of war and diplo-
Can the Democrats, for the sake of tempo-
rary partisan advantage, afford to switch now
to an essentially isolationist position? Can Re-
publicans, who so badly need the President's
aid in the election, afford to reject his leader-
, slup-in the military and diplomatic fields -
where he is both especially qualified and espe-
cially responsible? New approaches are needed
-o keep American foreign policy abreast of the
times. But in our opinion this one leads exactly
away from the most useful direction. Congress
would be wise to stop, look, and listen.

TAL LAIA'SSEE Gov. LeRoy
Collins said Monday that "emer-

sidere'd at an expected, 20-day spec-
ial legislative session starting July
"I don't expect the special ses-
sion to turn into a short-term gen-
eral session," Collins said. "I hope
'it will be even less than 20 days."
The governor indicated' he will
reject appeals from various agen-
cies for appropriations and new
laws to be considered at the ses-
sion. He said also that even the
actual starting date is not defi-
nito because "there are still some

four-cent money could be spent on
'the state primary highway and
park roads systems."
When the bill came back to the
Senate, Tapper said, insertion of
the word "primary" was overlooked.
As a result, he said, the counties
now are faced with the problem of
having to take over maintenance of
many miles of highway that no lon-
ger qualify as primary roads.

At that time ,no mention of Ce-

essentially the same that Webb

The bill that Congress passed
last week provides for $3'2.a bil-
lion during the next 13 years. That
isn't exactly the way Cecil Webb
had planned it, but it shows he
was on solid ground.
Some people laughed at Webb
for taking his idea directly to the
President. Some people in Florida
*said he was"just trying to show
off. Even some members of the
Florida Delegation here treated
Wobb as though they thought he
should stick to making Dixie Lily
grits and corn meal-and leave
road building problems to them.
But, it should, be noted that Con-
igressmran' Bob Sikes, "dean" of
the'Florida Delegation, did have
faith enough in Webb's plan to
arrange for a visit to the White
House. And when Webb talked to
President Eisenhower, Sikes sat in
on the conference.
Among the high Flobrida Road of-
ficials who went to the White
House with Webb were Senator
George Tapper, of Port St. Joe,
then chairman of the State Legisla-
ture's Road Committee; Sam Turn-
bull, State Highway Engineer; F.
M. '"Son" Turner, Jr., Road Board
Member from Pensacola.
Later, as chairman of the Road
Department, Webb published his
plan in a booklet entitled', "Flor-
ida's Plan for Better Highways."
This was a copy of a speech which
he made to the Committee on Ad-
ministration .of the American As-
sociation of State Highway Offi-
c.als in Seattle, Washington, No-
vember 8, 19,54.
This is all in the record.
So, during the next few years,
as this great network of 41,000
miles of interstate road is under
construction-remember who first
took the idea. to the President..
Sometimes when you hit a beau-
tiful new stretch of completed
highway on this network-or may-
be complain and fuss about a mis-
craible detour where the new roads
are being built-take time out to
remember the old motto which
says, "There is no limit how much
