Is "Bail"
Correct ?
Frequently it happens that a
person is charged with a crime
and then before he is tried is
permitted to rema.n out of jail.
During this period he is appar
ently as free as the rest of us who
have committed no crime. We
have all heard the statement,
•'He's guilty. Why do they turn
him loose?”
There is a good reason for
this. Our law is based on the pre
sumption that a person is inno
cent of crime until proven guilty.
The right to bail is another fun
damental right preserved by our
State Constitution. All persons
accused of crime may be free on
bail except for the crimes of trea
son and murder. These two crim
es are not bailable if the proof
Is evident of the presumption
What is meant by bail? This
simply means that some person
either deposits a sum of money
with the court or agrees that a
certain sum will be forfeited it
the accused person fails to show
up when he should At first the
hail is to insure the presence of
the accused at the trial and at
the final judgement and sentence
of the trial court. A judge fixes
the amount of the bail and exces.
sive bail may not be required.
In Nebraska all persons con
victed of a crime have the right
to appeal to the State Supreme
Court. This may be waived by
the accused except in cases where
the sentence is death. In- cases
which are bailable an accused,
even though he has been convict
ed, has the right to be free on
bait until his appeal has been
decided. In any case where the
individual fails to comply with
the terms of his bail the money
is forfeited to the state.
In our country freedom is im
portant and bail is another way
of protecting this freedom. Thus,
we as individuals are spared from
being deprived of our freedom
until our guilt has been finally

Bonds To
Have That
New Look
ber 30—Don’t be surprised if
that United States Savings Bond
you buy from now on looks and
feels a little different—it’s just
gone streamline.
In keeping with the electronic |
I brain and other advancements
of the modern era, the new Ser
ies E bond is going to have more
“punch.” In fact, it’s full of pun
ches—13 of them. But don’t let
these worry you. They're just
another sign of progress in this
day of mechanization. And, inci
dentally, will save you 500,000
tax dollars a year in reduced
printing costs.
The Treasury says the only
other Savings Bond now offered,
the current income H bond, wili
continue to be printed on paper
stock in the old size.
The punch card bond is smaller
than its predecessor, and will be
handier to carry in a man's coat
pocket or a lady’s handbag. (It
might even prevent some of those
washing machine tragedies, caus
ed when the fellows had to fold
the old bond, then forgot to re
move it from a shirt jocket.)
The new size will also make it
easier to stow away bonds in your
strong box or bank safety de
posit box. The actual size of the
new E bond is 73/8 by 314 inches.
The old bond is 7% by 4 U in
For any who might be curlou*
about the 13 punches, the Treaa
ury offer? this explanation. Tht
first punch denotes the size of
the- bond. For example, a $100
bond would have a punch down
in the fourth position. The next
10 columns, or punches, repre
sent the serial number, and the
twelfth indicates it is a Series E
bond. The thirteenth column i«
reserved for special accounting
operations by the Treasury when
the bond is cashed.
Other than the smaller size,
the punches, anil the flexible
card-board stock on which it is
printed, the new bond looks very
much like the old one. It contains

the increase in the interest rate
from 3 to 3 14 per cent, effective
on bonds bought since February

tion values also appears on the
back. The other exception: most
of the punch card bonds carry

of nearly one hundred billion
dollars worth.

Watch on the Potomac
By Robert G. Spivack
THREE CHEERS FOR IKE—By any journalistic standards I im
agine that I qualify as a critic of the Eisenhower administration and
big money Republicans generally. There have been times at the
White House press conference when I had a feeling that the President
and Jim Hagerty both wished that I were not there.
I cite these qualifications lest anyone think I am getting soft or
becoming a blind admirer of the President, because of what I am about
to say. And what I want to say is this:
A majority of U.S. editorial writers, by no means Southerners only,
have failed to rise to the occasion in Little Rock. I believe the Presi
dent did. The carping criticism that has followed the President’a
moves into that tragic area were unworthy of American journalism.
There comes a time when critics and supporters of the Chief Executive
must close ranks against the irresponsibles. The Little Rock crisis
was such a time.
* • • •
So far as liberal editorialists are concerned, it seemed to me that
many were more carping in their criticism than even the segrega
tionists who could not be expected to like the course the President
followed. There were comments about Ike acting too late, about how
quiescent he had been up to this point on the integration issue, about
his lack of resolution and how he might have shown “leadership”
before the situation came to a head. ,
I’ve said many of these things myself in the past. But they were
no longer the issue. The question now was whether he took the course
that the situation demanded? If you agree that he did then back him
up, without sniping. If you think he was wrong, why then say so.
But it seems to be too self-righteous and too much “I told you so”
of typewriter generalissimos to be carrying on as they have.
THE EROSION OF THE OFFICE—Not too long before his heart
attack in 1955 the President was talking about his health. He said a
certain “erosion" took place in the human body of any one who held
the job he holds. There was the normal wear and tear on a man enter
ing Old Age. Then there was the extra drain on the mind and body
caused by all the responsibilities of the office.
The President in some ways is not a very good politician, at least
he doesn’t usually seem to understand the ways of American politics.
He probably never realized that the influence of his office was ala#
bound to “erode” in his second term because of the constitutional a
mendment barring a Third Term.
While I think his liberal critics might do well to keep quiet at the
present stage of developments in Arkansas, I cannot say that I am
surprised at the general editorial reaction to what has come in the
wake of the Little Rock crisis. There is a sort of feeling that it’s safe
to talk back to The White House and some who were afraid to stand
up before, now are working overtime pointing up Ike’s deficiencies.
* * * *
Columnist Marquis Childs, who knows his way around Newport,
summed up the feeling in that vicinity with these words:
“Some are saying he waited too long, while in the South he will
never b* forgiven for having called out the Federal troops in a race
issue. In his first term it seemed he could do no wrong, while it
must begin to look to him as though in the second term he can do
nothing right.”
If I were one of Ike’s advisors at this juncture in history I’d say,
“Don’t pay any attention to what they’re saying. These are just little
men trying to make enough noise to attract attention.”
Right now Eisenhower looks big, bigger than he has at any time
since he took office.
