This might be well to keep in mind the next time you read some press release about the terrible cost of the farm program In the U.S. DOESNT ANYBODY CARE'? HARRY LETS FLY Like most student activities on the "different" side, usually occurring in the spring, the lunch counter sitdown will probably lose its noyelty, and its headlines, and sink into oblivion, as' peaceable solutions and compromises are worked out. But along the way, ex-president Harry Try man managed to get into the picture by an- sWering a question. He was asked what he would do if some group staged a sitdown at a lunch counter that he might own, or something like that. Harry, as'usual, minced no words. Nor did he dodge the question. He said that he would throw them out, just as any'business owner or operator had a right to do if someone was interfering with his business. This, of course, brought a barrage of attacks on Harry. He probably expected them; and he is used to them. But we would like to ask a question ourselves. .If the:pwner pf the business, or the manager, does hot have the right to run and operate his own business as he sees fit, then what rights does he have?-Since when does any group', student or adult, white or colored, have a right to simply walk in and sit down — and stay — in any place of business to the detriment of those who would be paying customers if they could find room to transact business. Like Harry, we feel that your own business is still a little like ypyr own hpme, it is your castle; Anytime you 'cannot operate it as you wish, it is no longer yo.urs.' • '"'*.•'* * Npt GOLDBRJCKING - AN ASSET ! : Thp traditional "coffee break" of America, which has grown considerably in the past few years, is far more than goldbricking, according to a western doctor, Dr. Jean Felton of the school p/ medicine and public health of the 'University ' of "Southern California at Los Angeles. Dr. Felton ?ays the cpffee break is a valuable mental health asset. The coffee breaks increases production, eliminate fatigue, cuts the accident rate, provides for individual growth and relaxed relationship with fellow employees, to mention a few. "It is also p focal site for the exchange of beefs and grjpes," says the good doctor, "a good thing to get out of the system." Well, we like our cup of coffee morning and afternoon, and now we have an ever better excuse for having one. Coffee, anyone? ra Ul E. Call Street— Ph. CY 4-3535— Algona.

There is no fundamental system of govern ment any better than that on which the Unite States of America is built. Its,only weakness is in ourselves — our own incredible ability to mis manage, to cheat, to pursue personal gain rathe than public welfare, and to swallow a lot o poppycock from official sources or well-meaning organizations that lend to the general confusion Development — or rather lack of develop ment — of the nation-wide program of supei highways is a good example. This $45 billion program, the biggest publii works project ever undertaken, is a sorry mess Lack of coordination between planning and spending is giving the nation a few miles here and a few miles there of wonderful roads one interchanges, but hardly a continuous road any where in the nation traceable to this program. In a sparsely settled area in Nevada there is a segment with three interchanges costinc $384,000. These handle a daily traffic load o' 89 vehicles and serve old mines, a power line four or five small ranches', and a house of il repute, according to the General.Accounting of fice. Construction contracts seem to be wordec so that an original bid means nothing; before any given segment of road is constructed the costs manage to jump and less mileage .is constructed as a result. Our increased gasoline tax, expected to cover the cost of construction, is nowhere near making ends meet. . ' . It is pointed out that the big gainers by the interstqtes, when and if completed, will be the big trucking concerns; but the common, ordinary family driver is expected to pay the bills. The state turnpike progrcms on the other hand have proved nearly self-financing. The government sponsored interstate systems begin to look like a monstrous drain on the public purse that may never cease. This is not the only example of a giant "snafu". It is one of many. Our greatest danger seems to be that so few seem to care how things are managed, who manages them, and how honest the project remains. Until we again develop a good case of public anger about such elements of misrpan- agement, we can expect no improvement — and we cannot expect our own well-conceived democracy to operate as it should, a shining example to the rest of the world. If there is anything wrong with democracy it is in the way we allow it to be administered and not in the basic idea itself. When will we begin to care enough to correct the abuses? When will we begin to care enough to see that inefficient or dishonest administrators are ejected? When will we begin to care enough to' do credit to the principles of good, honest, sound democracy — to demand that those in charge be held responsible for waste, inefficiency and poor judgement, just as they are in any segment of private business? * * * HOW MANY SIDES IN THIS ELECTION? Sheldon Mail — We wonder if the general public is becoming a little hypnotized by the coursing up and down throughout our land of the various Democratic candidates for the presidential nomination. One almost begins to feel that the approaching election is completely one-sided, with nobody running for anything except the Democrats. They are obviously having their troubles, and are being far from shy about airing them, but sometimes it would seem that even bad publicity js better than no publicity at all. After all, there are some Republicans left in the precincts, too, and as one of them we are beginning to feel that we are sort of being overlooked. The Democrats are putting one some pretty impressive fireworks; maybe Nixon ought to begin operating on a more aggressive and showy scale to offset this Democratic grabbing the spotlight. It's a i-inch lie wouldn't have to improvise any windmills to tilt at; there are plenty of good issues the Republicans to campaign on. * * * An eleven-year-old boy is an amazing character. He can listen to a baseball game on the radio, read a comic book, play a game and eat orange and balck jelly beans all at the same time — Jefferson Bee. * * * "Erbe For Less Property Tax" says a headline. Who isn't'.' But the only way we'll ever get less is to cut down on some of the unnecessary and silly services which we have heretofore thought it essential to hav'f from one governmental source or another. * * * The excitement of youth is a wonderful thingl When a person gets too old to become excited, he's too old to enjoy life to the fullest extent. — Sac Sun. «»jnittfr : ; • ^'"''V ' It essrfo-dedi .thfowttf him to the; ffiS rS&Mt •&• II* 1 $*^ifA 6 , wheel hi * : fte'&K S» M.tfra'Vfi™ lnch «-i!
