Lincoln disk jockeys agree that
The Commanders are not pop

Frank Haydcn, KFOR, has used
The Commander's recording of

with a lot of percussion mostly

The Outsida World
By FRED DALY
Red Weakness Seen
Russia's vaunted .armed forces are not all the Reds would have
the West believe, British expert Brigadier C. H. Dewhurst reported in
the news magazine, U.S. News & World Report.
Dewhurst, former chief of the British mission to Soviet Germany,
said the Reds have three glaring military weaknesses lack of "know
how" for strategic bombing, a huge army composed mostly of highly
vulnerable tank divisions and a navy which "probably will never b
able to assume the offensive."
He said Russia does not trust her satellite allies in Eastern Europe
and Asia. He said no Soviet satellite army has taken part in joint
maneuvers with the Red army, none of the latest Soviet tanks have
been given to satellites and no four-engine bombers and no jet planes
in "large numbers" have been issued.
Dewhurst also said no atomic energy plants exist in Communist
countries outside Russia.
Living Costs Decline
The nation's cost of living declined three-tenths of one per cent
in September to the lowest level since last April, the government re
ported Tuesday. Statistics were reported by the Labor Department's
Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The department said its consumer price index dipped to 114.7 per
cent of the 1947-48 average. The decline was attributed largely to
lower prices for most foods, primarily fresh fruits and vegetables,
coffee and eggs.
Mrs. Aryness Joy Wickens, acting labor statistics commissioner,
declined to predict what living costs will show for October when those
figures become available next month, and in subsequent months in

Sen. Everett Dirksen of Illinois told a Republican rally in Fair
bury Tuesday that the Republicans under Eisenhower have "rebuilt
the wall of good government." He said the Republicans had done what
Nehemiah of the Old Testament did when he rebuilt the walls of
He said the foundation of this wall is President Eisenhower, "a
gracious, fine man, for whom I have developed a great respect." He
added that he was on a crusade, bringing a little truth and telling the
importance of electing a Republican Senate and Congress.
President Eisenhower gave Republicans more fuel for the poli
tical fire Monday when he reported that unemployment dropped this
month to 2,700,000 a decline of 400,000. These new figures show the
first drop this year below the three-million mark.
Eisenhower said in his telecast address to an industrial group in
Washington that fear of a major depression "can be safely laid away."
He added that unemployment will be discussed again Tuesday night
in a national telecast by Secretary of Labor MitcheE. " 7
