The Outside World
By FRED DALY
Cabinet Makes TV Debut
The first nationally televised and broadcast cabinet meeting in
history heard Secretary of State John Foster Dulles report on the
West European defense agreement Monday.
President Eisenhower dramatized the importance of the agreement
by arranging for the televised meeting. He went to the airport to greet
Dulles who spoke of "a new era in Europe." It was the first time
Eisenhower had turned up at the airport to greet a returning cabinet
Dulles expressed an optimistic feeling for the beginning of a "new
era" in a short speech at the airport. He then gave Eisenhower a
typewritten document of some 40-50 pages presumed to be a confi
dential report of the meeting.
K. Of C. Action Condemned
A brother of the late Msgr. Edward J. Flanagan, founder of famed
Boys Town, has asked that Father Flanagan's name no longer be
used to identify a Knights of Columbus Council which refused the
entry of three Negroes.
The request was in a letter from Msgr. Patrick A. Flanagan to
John F. Krecji, a grand knight of the Father Flanagan of Boys Town
Council of the Knights of Columbus.
Three Negroes were rejected when their application to join the
council was voted down five to seven by the Council's 2000 mem
bers. National K. of C. rules say four "no" votes are enough.
Nebraska Population Up
Nebraska's population gain sirice 1950 has been four times that of
the previous ten years. The population reached 1,350,000 by last July 1,
a gain of some 36,000 since the last official census in 1950:
While the increase was nearly four times the growth the state had
in the decade from 1940-1950, it still was only half the average growth
enjoyed by the nation as a whole.
The national gain was 6.3 per cent from 149,643,000 in 1950 to
162,414,000 at the present time. Only three of the 48 states had a
iecrease in population during this time. Nevada, with a 33.1 percent
increase, led all states in percentage of gain.
Psychiatrist Says McClelland 'Sane'
Dr. F. L. Spradling, superintendent of the Nebraska State Hospital,
testified Monday that Charles Edward McClelland, prison inmate on
trial for murder, "has been sane at all times in his life."
McClelland, on trial for the first degree murder of a prison guard,
has pleaded not guilty bp reason of insanity after signing a confession
of the crime.
Dr. Spradling, a psychiatrist, said that, in his opinion, McClellarsd
had not be;n temporarily insane on April 16, the date of the murder.
He said as near as he could determine the defendant knew right from
wrong and knew the "nature and quality of his acts."
