Wilkins Urges Defeat Of Bid To
Change Electoral College
llltif ■Je* Y°rk — Calling for the defeat of the pending Senate reso
lu on to change the present Electoral College voting system, Roy
^ilkms, executive secretary of the National Association for the Ad
cement of Colored People, has alerted local NAACP units in key
resolution^ th<?m t0 Urge- their senators to vote against the
C*?ea[ resolution sponsored by Senators Hubert H. Humph
Minn.) and Price Daniel (D„ Texas) would divide each
state s votes for President and Vice President in the Electoral Col
1° thG popular vote received by the respective
candidates. Under the present system candidates receiving a major
ity of the popular vote win the state’s entire electoral vote
Former Representative Ed Gossett, (D„ Texas), an original
sponsor of this resolution, which was defeated in a previous Con
gress, frankly announced that its purpose was to curb the voting
power of Negroes and other minorities in the more populous north°
ern and western states. He specified, in addition to Negroes the
need to curb the organized labor, Italian, Polish, Jewish and Irish
vote m the big northern states.
Since the resolution, reported out of committee on May 19 may
come up for vote any time, Mr. Wilkins warned local NAACP lead
«-s that immediate action is required. “Write your senators without
aelay ... Urge them to vote against the Daniel-Humphrey Joint
Resolution 31 when it comes to the floor for action. Ask other or
ganizations to do likewise. It is important to check this move to re
strict voting power on the basis of race,” the NAACP executive
"The Tide Of History"
Statecraft would be disappointing if it did not produce an occa
sional rolling phrase. Secretary Dulles indulged in a familiar but
appropriate one in his radio report with President Eisenhower on the
recent meetings in Europe.
The entry of West Germany into the North Atlantic Treaty Or
ganization, he thought, “may mark a turning point in the tide of
world history.” Humanity does seem indeed to have been caught up
in strong tides since World War II.
One of these has been described by the phrase “cold war.” It
has seemed to assume an unending hostility between communism and
freedom which could be resolved only by physical clash. Yet the
contradiction is between ideas, one of which will ultimately be proved
specious and the other valid.
Physical clash need come only if men are too violent to trust to
competition in production and trade or to the processes of experience
and logic. Consequently, hope has grown, and the union of the
^est has consolidated it, that what Moscow calls “peaceful existence”
can be more than a phrase—can be not a trap but a situation in which
answers to world problems will evolve. This is the opposing tide,
or the possible ebb of the “cold war” tide.
At the moment we are in what the mariners call “slack water”_
between tides. Its calm can be deceptive. But the ebb of tensions
can carry diplomatic boats out on voyages of discovery.
The tides of history cannot be predicted by astronomy nor is
there mathematical regularity about them. They are tides of human
thought. Even statesmen do not control them, but ride, and use,
and often direct them. Popular passions can defy a King Canute.
But if people value good leaders, and if they value peace with justice,
they can make this prospective new tide in human history a beneficent
The Unique Case Of Gas
Should the Federal Power Commission regulate the price of na
tural gas at the wellhead? This question, now before Congress, af
fects more than 23,000,000 American homes. It also vitally affects an
industry which has become the nation’s sixth largest.
The question arises because this industry is unique. It is not just
like the electric power and light business which is closely controlled.
It is not exactly the same as the coal business, which is virtually un
controlled. The key to it lies in 400,000 miles of pipelines. Gas pro
duction is further complicated by its connection with oil, both often
coming from the same well. Also some gas is wetter than others,
requiring more costly processing before use.
For these and other reasons the FPC has been reluctant to
regulate gas-field prices as it regulates the pipelines. But last June
tic Supreme Court held that the Natural Gas Act of 1938 required
control at the well-head. It in effect supported consumer contentions
that regulation of local distributors or of the pipelines does not halt
retail price rises if the producers lift the well-head rate. In this
they are joined by some pipelines and local distributors.
Producers answer the demand for control on the ground of
monopoly by declaring that there are more than 4,000 producers and
that they compete for pipeline contracts. But advocates of federal
regulation maintain that 85 per cent of natural gas sold in interstate
commerce comes from fewer than 100 companies and that 8 firms
■produce one-third of the total. They assert that the main competition
is between pipelines hunting for supplies.
One of the strong arguments of opponents is that if producers’
prices are cut the incentive to seek new supplies will be lost. It is
true that exploration is costly and uncertain. Last year the dis
covery of new supplies barely kept pace with consumption. But for
several years the increase in reserves has far exceeded use and sup
plies are now in sight for more than 20 years. Since natural gas now
&i0"nishes one-fourth of the nation’s fuel a failure to maintain re
serves would be serious. Could the FPC adjust rates to meet a need
The immediate decision is on legislation now before Congress to
overturn the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the law and exempt
natural gas producers from federal regulation. The Supreme Court
said the primary aim of the 1938 act was to protect “consumers
against exploitation.” That general purpose this newspaper also
favors. But it does not favor the extension of federal controls if
there is any reasonable alternative.
This unique case of gas sets up a conflict of purposes that would
be resolved for us by factual answers to three questions: Do mono
poly conditions exist? Is federal regulation practicable? Can the
consumer be protected by any other means? The information we
feave been able to get so far does not supply answers.
Owen J. Roberts
Owen J. Roberts was more than a quondam associate justice of
the Supreme Court equipped with a notably independent mind.
Not that this was inconsequential. Personally a conservative Re
publican, he brought into a period of legislative innovation and ex
perimentation a willingness to consider each issue on its merits
rather than by any touchstone of prior opinions. Consequently he
often held the balance between liberal and conservative views. He
upheld, for instance, the Wagner Labor Relations Act but opposed the
But Justice Roberts’ reputation for unprejudiced approach drew
him into large public service aside from the bench both early and
late in his career. He was appointed by President Coolidge to prose
cute, jointly with former Senator Atlee Pomeren, thos involved in
the Teapot Dome oil scandals. And President Franklin D. Roosevelt
drafted him to head the investigation into the attack of Pearl Harbor.
International problems and, as a citizen not as a judge, political
matters challenged his interest. His active support brought weight
to the World Federalist movement and, by way of a lawyers’ com
mittee in his home city of Philadelphia, to the nomination and elec
tion of Dwight D. Eisenhower.
A nation sets high value upon a citizen to whom it can turn with
complete confidence in his impartiality and integrity. It found such
a man in Justice Roberts.
News From Around Nebraska
At Bassett, Nebraska the Lions Club sponsored a fishing con
test for the youngsters. It took place last Saturday afternoon.
There were 8 prizes for $1.50 each given and the youngsters were
divided up into two divisions; grades four and under and grades
five through eight.

At Red Cloud the Senior girls were honored at a tea whieh
was staged by the women’s society. The ladies worked out a
program centering about the theme “This is Your Life” and
they picked girls from the class who had taken part in some
form of activity and portrayed them as they appeared the first
time they performed. The Red Cloud Commercial Advertiser
reported the party in detail last week.
Towns along the Missouri river in the vicinity of the now
forming Gavins Point reservoir are becoming quite conscious of
the presence of that body of water. The Cedar County News,
printed at Hartington, recorded two activities this week which
indicate preparations for full use of the lake.
A new association, named the Lewis and Clark Lake Associa
tion, has been formed and it will embrace towns on both the Ne
braska and Iowa sides of the river, both above and below the new
reservoir. Purpose of the association will be to work toward
the development of the area surrounding the lake to improve its
fishing and hunting facilities. The association will also serve as
an agency to publicize the area and work out means of getting
tourists and others to make full use of the facilities.
In another move, entirely separate from the work being
done by the association, a water safety course on the river and
the lake is being prepared and those interested in boating, fish
ing or swimming, are receiving free instruction.

A new bakery and candy manufacturing plant is being in
stalled at Curtis, Nebraska according to the Curtis Enterprise.
The bakery will furnish that community with the usual run of
bakery goods but will place considerable emphasis on the manu
facture of candy which will be distributed through dealers over
a wide area. The plant is being set up by a man who has re
cently come to the United States from Czechoslovakia. He states
that in his native land his candy plant at one time employed 100

A Fourth of July celebration which will honor the older
people of the community is being planned at Franklin. The Sen
tinel, printed there, pointed out last week that most Fourth of
July celebrations are aimed at entertaining the young folks.
This time, the affair will favor the oldsters.
There will be special recognition and prizes awarded for
the oldest couple, the one married the longest, the oldest man
and the oldest women, etc. A picnic dinner and other entertain
ment is being planned.

A “buried forest” under which there is believed to be a
supply of uranium is being sought in Allen Creek Gulch eight
miles north of Missouri Valley, the Missouri Valley Times re
ported last week. The forest is being sought by men from the
Iowa Geological Survey who have substantial evidence that the
forest once existed and that there is a strong possibility of
uranium in the area.

Fred Yost, operator of a lumber yard at Milford, Nebraska
received a high school diploma last week, although he had left
the Milford High School fifty years ago. The Seward Indepen
dent, in recounting the incident, revealed that Mr. Yost had left
High School but a few credits short of graduation. He had en
gaged in the lumber business and had decided a few years ago
that he would like to be a high school graduate.
He enrolled in an extension course from the University of
Nebraska, made up his credits and became a full fledged gradu
ate this year along with the young folks of the class of ’55.

Seward is having water trouble, much the same as Blair and
is now planning to spend $80,000 on an expansion project. That
community gets its water from wells three miles from town and
now finds that it needs not only new wells but a larger pipeline
Although this cannot be completed in time to alleviate the
shortages of this summer, the work is being rushed to comple
tion so as to be in readiness next year. Meanwhile a “share the
water” plan of lawn sprinkling is being worked out so that no
one will be short this year.

A huge mosquito control district, starting at Ogallala and
running west to the Wyoming state line, is being formed, ac
cording to the Bridgeport News-Blade. The control district would
be set up in much the same manner as a drainage district and
would be financed by a small mill levy. The mosquitoes would
be controlled by spraying. The Brdigeport newspaper points out
that in an irrigation area, such as exists in that part of the state,
there is much propogation of the pests and that formation of the
district would be a big help.

There is a move on foot at Oshkosh to consolidate the rural
routes out of that town. The present routes are to be consolidat
ed into two routes, the Garden County News reports. The change
is being made in the interests of economy.

An entirely new, golden color
ed, all- purpose shortening, gold
en Fluffo, is being introduced
Yi week by Procter & Gamble
i'oughout Iowa, Nebraska and
. ' ts of South Dakota.
Golden'Fluffo, the company
iorts, is a completely new
1 -nd of shortening ingredients
that is the result of 16 years of
research. The ingredients are
• o .bined in a special way to
:e a product which, according
,'0 the company, gives home
j makers more golden-brown and
appetizing baked and fried foods.
Although it is golden in color,
| P&G emphasizes, this new short
1 ening is not designed or intended
for use as a table spread. Rath
er, it is a pure all-purpose short
ening for baking and frying
which P&G says will produce
superior results in any and all
“Fluffo also has special blend
j ing and mixing advantages,”
| said Miss Lydia Cooley, Director
| of Home Economics at Proctor
& Gamble. “Imagine being able
to see when all cake or pastry
ingredients have beeen complete
ly blended! This is possible for
the first time with Fluffo, be
cause its golden color serves as a
guide to show when it is evenly
distributed throughout a batter
or dough mixture.
“It is ideal for shallow or deep
fat frying or sauteing. When
jused this way it produces a par
ticularly appetizing golden-brown
result easily noticed, especially
with light-colored foods like po
tatoes, fish or popcorn.
“You’ll also like its economy
in deep frying. Because it keeps
clear and does not darken at pro
per frying temperatures, it can
be re-used up to eight times or
more for deep-fat frying.”
Made by a new process, Fluffo
has excellent keeping qualities.
According to the company, it
stays creamy longer than other |
shortenings and doesn’t need re
frigeration. An asset, indeed, in
most homes where refrigerators
have a way of getting crowded to
Golden Fluffo requires neither
special handling nor special re
cipes. Procter & Gamble points
out, and it can be substituted,
