Is Home To Plane Travel

UPI Staff Writer

everybody knows flying is safe,
except maybe off the coast of Ko

work out something so we also
can count on surviving the drive

Ike Is Disturbed About Spread
Of Marx' Communist Teachings
WASHINGTON (UPI) Presi
dent Eisenhower was saying the
other 'day that Americans should
reject the theories of Karl Marx.
He told a news conference that he
was greatly disturbed at the
spread in the United States of an
idea which dated back to Marx'
Communist teachings of more
than. 110 years ago.
Specifically, Eisenhower object
ed to Marx' doctrine of the class
war, the ultimately violent con
test for supremacy between what
Marx called the proletarians and
the bourgeoisie. That may be
translated ' into labor (proletar
ians) and management or capital
(bourgeoisie i. Eisenhower's refers
encc to Marxian theory i came dur
ing discussion of steel labor con
Karl Marx, and his collaborator,
Friedrich Engels, made their pitch
for the class war for a classless
society 111 years ago, in 1848.;
They then wrote "The Communist
Manifesto." Their work is the ba
sic document of all of the Socialist
parties in the world today, in
cluding the Communist party of
the Soviet Union.
Non-Socialist parties and gov
ernments have nibbled at various
parts of the Marx-Engcls prescrip
tion for a classless society, adopt
ing bits and pieces of it. Of the
10 steps toward Socialism or
Communism proposed by Marx
and Engels, however, one notably
has been accepted and made
grimly effective in even the most
capitalist nations, including the
i Marx and Engels' 10 steps to
Utopia were these:
Abolish property rights In land
and apply all rents to public pur
poses. Impose a heavy progressive or
graduated income tax.
Abolish all rights of inheri
Confiscate p-operty of all emi
grants and rebels. 1
Centralize credit In the hands
of the state by means of a na
tional bank with state capital and
exclusive monopoly. '
Centralize the means of com
munication and transport in the
hands of the state.
Extend factories and Instru
ments of production owned by the
state; bring waste lands into cul
tivation and improve the soil gen
erally with a common plan. .
Gombine agriculture with
manufacturing industries; gradu
ally abolish the distinction be
tween town and country, by more
equitable distribution-' of popula
tion. "In a sense," Marx and En
gels wrote, "the theory of the
Communists may be summed up
in a single sentence: Abolition of
private property!" '

Depends On You
On boarding the bus you meet
first "the .best safety device" yet
invented. This, in a mirror, turns
out to be you. This flattery no
doubt is calculated to soften you
up for what is to come, the burden
of which is that the most lethal
weapon on the highway today also
can be you.
It depends on how you drive.
Sealed beam headlights are
sinned in your eyes, after which
it takes three seconds to recover
vision enough to see a stop sign.
Next time, watch' the edge of the
road instead ' of the oncoming
lights. This cuts your recovery
time in half. At 50 miles per hour,
that could save you to travel again
with the airlines.
