Wanton Murder
The wanton murder of the Weinberger
baby is enough to arouse the homocidal ten
dencies in most anyone who has followed the
incident at all. But it also arouses the deep
est respect and gratitude for those who solved
the case. Here was no known criminal in
volved, no gang, no personal motive.' no tan
gible plan nothing but the completely un
principled determination of an unknown to
raise 92,000.
It Is a sordid story, made the more so by
the myriad of cranks who tried to cash in on
the ransom or the publicity, or further com
plicate the search by a perverted desire to
inject themselves incognito. Not in many a
year has it seemed so much wreckage of the
human race came to the surface in a single
Tragic comeuppance is the finding of the
little body abandoned by the roadside six
miles from home. What matter if the killer
denies he murdered the tot! It was mur-
dered by abandonment, by fear. Mortal jus
tice, no matter what it is, is pitifully inade
quate for a crime like this.
The reported circumstances which led the
kidnaper to abandon the baby without claim
ing the reward stirs again the ruestion of
the course newspapers should follow in re
porting a case like this. The villain, Lamarca,
said he drove away ' from the rendezvous
when he saw police cars and a crowd, after .'
hearing the news broadcast, and left the babe
under the bushes. It was stated at the time
that one New York paper had violated an in
formal understanding of silence on the part
of the press. That paper's explanation was
that the story was already in common circu
lation in the vicinity in other words, was
fast becoming known.
In a kidnaping in San Francisco a few
years ago the papers did keep silent. In a
few days the kidnapers were caught and the
captive released but the editors there were
never certain they had followed the right
course. We recall, too, a case in Albany a
few years ago where a babe was stolen from
the hospital. The story was widely publicized
and solved when a woman became suspicious
over the showing of infant laundry on a.
neighbor's line.
There seems to be no fixed rule for to
ltors to follow in such cases.
voters actually registered as Independents.
In Marion County, independents comprise
less-than one half of one per cent of the to
tal registration. Then there is another half
per cent listed as progressives, socialists, pro
hibitionists and miscellaneous. That means
several hundred votes completely unpredict
able. And in some areas where party loyalty
is not as strong as it is here, the percentage
of independents and other minorities it con
siderably larger.
One factor seems certain there will be
more effort than ever, so far as the major
parties are concerned, to "get out the vote.
With a reasonable assurance that most party
adherents will vote as registered, the Demo
crats will try harder than ever to overcome
their traditional handicap of failing to turn
out percentagewise as well as Republicans.
And the latter can be counted on to try ev
erything to keep their edge...
Communifttfl At It Again
Were it. not that logic was on the' other
side, one would think Bed China's new ban
ditry in the air was in pique at the political
platforms which oppose her admission to the
United Nations. But logic has never been
worth applying in analyzing the Red mental
ity. ,
There have been times lately when there
were signs of weakening in the front which
has kept Communist China from the com
munity of nations. Truculence and hoodlum
ism remained, but with' no serious overt acts
in recent months there appeared hope that
China might be trying to take on a new in
ternational front. Whether she would get any

but protests the violation of her frontiers by

change of pace had been designed to inveigle
herself into the good graces of nations, she
has undone whatever along that line she may
have accomplished.

Editorial Comment
The Independent Voir r
The remarkable degree of unanimity with
which both major parties chose their ticket
for the November election puts the so-called
independent voter In the driver's seat more
than ever this year.
There need be little or no time or effort
wasted to assure party unity there are no
major offshoots of disgruntlement on either
side, and probable in greater measure than
ever before Democrats will vote Democrat
and Republicans will vote Republican. The
defection of those not entirely satisfied with
the vice presidential nominees will be neg
ligible. The independent voter, however, by no
means is always registered as such. He may
be the luke warm party affiliate who keeps
hit registration just so he doesn't lose his vot
ing franchise in the primaries. But even out
side of this segment, the size of which is im
possible of accurate estimate, there are. many '
Republican Sessions Lacked Un
Messiness Which Flavor Pol
Confuted State of Affairs
While the Oregon Game Commission has been
steadly tightening game laws and bag limits for
purposes of conservation, the Oregon Fish Com
mission has been freely granting commercial li
censes to skiff fishermen, resulting in much con
fusion and criticism.
State police recently checked an angler at Coos
Bay. The man had a large catch of fish. The officer
thought, he really had a serious violation when he
learned that the angler was a non-resident. '
The angler proved to be a college professor
from another state. Coming to Oregon for a vaca
tion, he investigated the license situation.
A non-resident anglers license would cost 110. He
would be restricted to two fish per day and not
more than four fish in any seven days. He could
buy a daily license tor 11 per day. with a maximum
of four fish in seven days. He had a friend operat
ing a commercial fishing boat. So the visiting pro
fessor paid $7 50 for a personal license 'boat
puller's license! and was entitled to catch as many
fish as he could land, with the privilege of selling
his catch.
A good many sports fishermen are taking out
commercial licenses. They feel that as long as this
opportunity exists they might as well take advan
tage of It.
It is to be hoped that the next Legislature will
take steps to remove the confusion and discrimi
nation now existing in the license situation.

Line Held in Social
Welfare Ventures
Statesmaa Washington Correspondent
(Third la a series)
WASHINGTON One of the favorite targets of Republicans
during the Fair Deal days of the Truman administration was what "
they called the drift toward a "welfare state" so it is ironic
that one of the first major actions of the GOP
ry-T'j nam iji "inj Congress in 1953 after President Eisenhower
. flr"3tv1 took office was to grant his request for crea
tion of a new government department ta handle
federal welfare programs. ,
Congress had twice, rejected similar pleas
from President Truman, but under Eisenhower
a new cabinet office was created to head th
Department of Health, Education and Welfare.
This first cabinet officer was Mrs. Oveta Culp
Hobby, who was later to bow out under fire for
dragging her feet on federal aid to education
proposals and the administration of govern
ment supervision over Salk vaccine production
and distribution for national polio inoculations.
More Money Than Ever Goen to Welfare
Mrs. Hobby wanted to call it the "Department of The General
Welfare," referring ot that phrase in the Constitution's preamble,
which states that one purpose of the nation's basic document is to
"promote the general welfare." The late Sen. Robert A. Taft
quashed that idea, saying, "That's just what 1 am trying to get
away from."
President Eisenhower had no such anti-welfare state convic
tions. On election eve in 1952, he told the American people: "I
pledge that the social gains achieved by the people, whether en
acted by a Republican or Democrat administration, are not only
here to stay but are here to be improved and extended."
If budget figures are taken as a criteria, that pledge has been
kept. The Eisenhower administration today is spending more money
than the Truman administration for the government's various
welfare programs.
Also, social security benefits have been extended to 10.000.000
Americans, raising the number covered today to more than 55.
000,000. But one other program public housing has been cut
back from 75,000 new units annually to 35.000.
Congress Generous With Welfare Funds
Shortly after Congress adjourned this summer, Eisenhower signed
a new social security bill which he had not wanted but was handed
him hv the Democratic S4th Congress. Its main feature was to
drop the age of eligibility for women from 65 to 62. Other instances
show that Congress insisted on appropriating more welfare funds
than the administration asked for.
Mrs. Hobby, for example, tried at first to cut hack funds for
Wellare programs but was stung by angry outcries from profes
sional welfare groups. Subsequently her budget requests were
pared to the previous year's amounts but no further. Almost in
variably. Congress raised the amounts substantially. So, in effect.
Congress implemented the president's campaign pledge despite
Mrs. Hobby.
On the other hand, Mrs. Hobby earned credit for advances in
work on vocational rehabilitation and tor broadening the Hill-Rurton
hospital construction act. Her proposal for federal re-insurance of
private insurance policies covering hospital and medical care was.
rejected by Congress in 1954.
.Runs Into Trouble on Education .
The only lady in the cabinet ran into trouble on federal aid lor
school construction, an issue raised by overcrowded public schools
in many rapidly expanding communities throughout the nation.
Despite the President's urging for her to devise a program, she
delayed for two years while studying the matter. Finally, she came
forth with a" complicated plan for federal purchase of local school
" bonds plus limited grants to impoverished school districts. It went"
over like a lead balloon.
Mrs. Hobby's worst trouble came in the wake of medical pro
nouncements in 1955 that the Salk polio vaccine was safe and
effective, for she was blamed for having no advance plans to assure
federal testing and distribution procedures. She resigned July 14, ,
. Eisenhower named as her successor Marion B. Folsom, who
had been under-secretary of the treasury. He immediately went to
work on a school aid program.' which went 1o Congress last .lanu-
ar) It was a five-year program of $2 billion in loans and aid.
Sfjtrepalion Confuse. School Issue
The Democrats in Congress, however, came up with a mnrc
extensive aid program hut the. whole issue became ensnarled
over the question of whether aid should be withheld from school
districts which continue racially segregated classes until they inte
grate the races in conformity with the Supreme Court's decision.
So no bill passed.
In the area of research, both the President and Congress have
. Increased funds for a stepped up program. The budget of the Office
. of Education has been doubled. . allowing., for .research into .such .
questions as educational needs of low-income families, the causes
and remedies for students dropping out of high school, and in
struction of mentally, retarded children.
Rv almost any standard, the Eisenhower administration has
brought the Republican party a long way in a short time toward
acceptance of the New Deal-Fair Deal welfare philosophy. The
administration has led an often reluctant Republican party in car
rying forward and expanding practically every major undertaking
In this field other than public housing. It has introduced new Inno
vations in providing federal aid for private housing development,
and augmenting alum clearance. , ,
Social Caitm Kept But No New Venture.
At the) same time, the administration has not pushed ahead
much into unexplored terrilory. More often tnan not, it has re
sisted any major new concept of social welfare aid by the gov
ernment. The main example was their opposition this year to re
ducing the social security age for women and against benefits for
disabled workers, which had to be forced on the administration by
the Democratic Congress.

respectable homes. Many a lad
had to read them in the haymow
on rainy days, copies he had
smuggled in from some compan
ion with access to such literature.
The Merriwell books had rivals
of course. The Horatio Alger
series were rather more respec
table: "Luck or Pluck." "Sink
or Swim." because they glori
fied ambition and industry which
up to New Deal days were ac
counted virtues. The 'Henty books
were a moderate grade of his
torical fiction written for Juve
niles, and probably poured more
world history into many young
sters' heads than did the schools.
The Pover Boys had adventure
a-plenty, and Tom Swift was a
prototype of the Buck Rogers in
ventive type. Taste in late juve
niles runs now to westerns with
cowboys and Indians and to
space flights, and is sated prin
cipally by cartoon books. Merri
well was served in cold type with
wood-cuts for illustrations. Boys
at least had to be able to read
to enjoy Frank Merriwell.
What, one wonders, will be the
reaction of teen asers today to
the Freank Merriwell TV spectac
ular. Vale never gave him a
diploma, thoogh "Merriwell's
double-shoot pitch, which curved
twice on the way to the plate,
was God's gift to the Yale nine."
as Barney Lefferts of the N.Y.
Times Magazine staff writes in
discussing this "return" of Frank
Merriwell. It is doubtful if to
day's youth will appreciate this
sliited paragon of perfection, ath
letic though he was. Certainly
the Standish style of writing is
too exaggerated, too prolix to
suit t h e faster - paced menial
reactions, of today's juveniles.
But in the horse-and-buggy age
the Merriwell stuff was fast
enough, and boys held bug-eyed
to the text until the victory was
clinched with some thrilling, al
most impossible, exploit from
Merriwell. And at least the book s
were clean even though they fell
under parental disapproval. -
Merriwell on TV will surely
stir nostalgia - in the- minds of
many who years ago shared
vicariously in his adventures.
