Turkey Deserves More Aid
WITHOUT much fanfare, President Celal Bayar of Turkey
has come to the United States. He deserves the very
warmest of welcomes as the leader of one of the world’s
staunchest free countries.
We don’t hear too much about what Roes on in Turkey,
but the story is quite remarkable. For one thing:, the Turks
have no serious internal Communist threat. They have a
toutfh army that even the Russians are believed to fear.
They are one of the most reliable links in the chain of
defense embraced by the North Atlantic treaty from the
middle east to Scandinavia.
The Turks were first to volunteer military aid in the
Korean war and their soldiers fought the Communists with
fierce abandon. Now they are energetically trying: to arrange
a pact with Greece and Yukoslavia (not a NATO member)
on the west, and another with Pakistan and possibly Iraq
for the defense of the eastern lands.
INTERNALLY, Turkey has given the world a notable lesson
in the evolution of a once corrupt and rotting nation
toward healthy, industrious democracy. Turkey became a
republic in 1923. For long years its first president, Mustafa
Kemal Ataturk, served as a benevolent dictator. He devoted
himself intensely to the modernization of his country.
After Ataturk’s death, and without a further revolution,
the succeeding president, who might also have maintained
himself as a dictator, called for regular popular elections.
The ruling regime abided by the results, and democracy has
been flourishing ever since. In world history there are all
too few examples of dictators voluntarily relinquishing their
JN I960, after more than 27 years’ rule by the People’s
party, the Democrats under Bayar won a landslide victory.
Bayar has proceeded to give more support than his pre-
decessors for private enterprise, and under his rule Turkish
national' output has climbed 40 percent.
President Bayar is not here, of course, just for hand-
shakes. Undoubtedly he will press upon President Eisen-
hower and American diplomats Turkey’s view that it needs
double the aid it is now getting from us. Without it, the
Turks may have difficulty maintaining the 22 divisions and
four jet fighter groups with which they now defend the
free world’s southern arc.
Congress is in a belt-tightening mood toward foreign aid,
both economic and military. But if it wants to reward a
real friend and fighting ally—the kind it says it always is
looking for—this is the chance.
A magician isn’t the only one who produces things you
haven’t seen before. Think what some laundries bring back.
According to a doctor, too much TV and radio plays
havoc with the nerves. Shake!

THE STORY: Grete Marratt, a
fugitive from justice, is hiding
near Bella Loma. Ariz., as Luke
Usher, whom he resembles. Luke
ran away years before after accus-
ing Clem Kyerson, owner of the
Wineglass spread, of murdering
Jake Usher, Luke's father. A bullet
from ambush already has struck
Marratt, and Clint Galnor has made
a substantial offer for the Usher
land, but Marratt stays on. He of-
fers to sell “Usher cattle" to Beck-
with, the Indian agent reacts with
fear. Actually Wineglass has taken
over all of the Usher cattle. At the
Indian office. Marratt saw an In-
dian girl. Later he finds her swim-
ming in a tank nearby and she
orders him away.
* * $
A LL the way home Marratt an-
grily tried to concentrate his
mind on the talk he'd had with
hat conniving agent but his ex-
asperating thoughts kept sneaking
off to the girl he had found in
She probably wasn't, he decided,
more than 18, but if you cared for
ndlan models she’d come off the
topmost shelf. And she hadn't hid
n any hogan when the brains were
being passed out or Beckwith
wouldn’t have had her working
around his office.
He had never heard of the gov-
ernment hiring squaws in any ca-
pacity and you'd have thought that
rabbity agent would have been a
heap too careful to go hiring one on
his own hook—even so delectable
a one us he appeared to have latch-
He was able on that thought to
put her out of his mind for the
moment and to go over somewhat
sketchily the gist of his conversa-
tion with Beckwith.
The man was a self-confessed
crook who had knowingly bought
Usher cattle from Wineglass, se-
cure In the presumption of Ryer-
son’s local influence.
Marratt, with customary thor-
oughness, had already tackled the
other roundabout agencies without
discovering any interest in stock
which could be had on terms sub-
stantially beneath the current mark-
et value. Wineglass contracts, he’d
been pointedly informed, were amp-
ly taking care of all the beef their
money was able legally to purchase.
He had never seriously intended
trying to unload Usher cattle al-
though he had, to be sure, briefly
pondered the possibilities. What he
had been after was the knowledge
Just uncovered, an Indian Agent’s
duplicity which he could, if he were
forced to, hold over Ryerson’s head.
* * *
fJE hadn't, of course any proof
II that would stand up if it came
to a lawsuit, nor did he imagine
such proof existed, but he was
strongly inclined to doubt that
Wineglass would court a public in-
quiry. His obvious course should
things start getting rough would be
to have a talk with Ryerson and
give the man to understand he’d
placed written particulars in other
folks’ hands to be examined in the
event he happened to turn up dead
It wasn’t the be.4t defense in the
world because a bullet might catch
him before he ever got to Ryerson.
It might be smarter, he decided, tf
seek out Ryerson right away, but It
might take a deal of doing. Un-
doubtedly Ryerson had heard Luke
Usher was back and he would have
taken precautions to make sure the
fellow had no chance to get near
him. His thoughts swung to Beck-
with again. He could be wrong, but
considering the Jolt the man had
received, Marratt thought it was
likely the Jittery agent would light
out for Wineglass.
Through careful questioning of
Frailey, Marratt had a pretty good
idea of the approximate location
of Ryerson’s headquarters. This was
the knowledge which had hurried
him north hoping to Intersect the
line of Beckwith’s probable travel.
After another 15 minutes he dis-
covered a trail that looked likely
and when he came onto it he found
ample evidence that someone had
used it within the last hour. Some-
one in a hurry.
If these tracks were made by a
horse packing Beckwith and the
agent was actually making for
Wineglass it behoved Grete Mar-
ratt to find a hole to crawl into
until he could arrange to have that
talk with the cow king. It wasn’t
hard at all to imagine Ryerson’s
reactions once he lefrned the sup-
posed Usher was on the trail of
those vanished cattle.
Marratt took a quick look at his
shadow, rapidly calculated how
much longer he could expect to
have daylight, and set out on the
trail of the hurrying hooftracks.
* * *
IJE rode leisurely now, giving
H himself time for thought, ser-
iously wondering if he had made the
right choice in deciding to puss
himself off for Luke Usher. There
was so much he didn’t know . . .
He might have dug some of these
things out of Beckwith if he’d
thought of it—he might still. Fur-
ther thought tended to persuade
him it would be too risky to over-
take the agent within striking dis-
tance of Ryerson’s headquarters.
They’d have the whole crew out
hunting him and, with superior
knowledge of the country, would
have him bottled up in no time. His
best bet was simply to make sure
the agent was carrying his story to
Marratt stopped his horse of a
sudden, eyes narrowing. The plain
trail he’d been following had Just
come over a section of ledgerock
which in turn had given way to a
stretch of loose shale as it left the
dry bed of a once-a-year river. He
was still on the trail but the fresh
tracks had vanished. He scanned
the line of old willows bordering
each bank and then glanced back at
the ford, not liking this a little bit.
Why had Beckwith quit the
(To Be Continued)
IT is better to have it and not
I need it than to need it and
not have it is the firm conviction
of the Red Cross Disaster Pre-
paredness and Relief committee
who with their chairmen and sub
committee chairmen are attend-
ing a school of instruction now
in session In El Reno.
They are really trimming their
sails and preparing to batten
down the hatches against the big
blow of any natural disaster
which could happen here in spite
of legends to the contrary. These
legends are false security and
from practically every town or
city which has had a tornado
has come the report that they
too had been told by the de-
scendants of the aborgines who
originally inhabited that area
that it couldn’t happen there. But
For years I have watched the
pattern of tornadoes. It appeared
that the heart of great cities
were immune to the whirling fun-
nels of destruction as they seemed
to always strike the edges of
towns or outlying districts. I de-
cided there must be an up-draft
between the skyscrapers which
fended off the twisting winds.
Consider Waco, Tex. The funnel
of that tornado dropped out of
the clouds right in the big middle
of the business section. So don’t
let any arm-cliair dopester fool
you with that one. The terrible
things are unpredictable and
variable to the highest degree.

Joint committee on the economic

rpHAT sounded good until the
I farm-price skid of a year ago
brought up the realisation that
there might be a recession in the
wind. 8omeone wanted to do some
planning to curb its bad effects.
Subsequently increases in unem-
ployment emphasized this.
What finally emerged was a little
of both the old and new ideas. The
president got a new adviser on his
staff. And he finally won from
congress authority and money to
keep the three-man council with
full staff. So now “the professors”
are back on the Job.

named presidential adviser in
March. In August he was made
