DM Mc-tn«t Thurtddy, May fles ulotee$ THOSE NEW "CLOVERLEAFS" We have noted pktufes of the new "modem cloverleaf IntetthonQes" on Interstate Highways 35 and SO, just southwest of Des Moines, As we hove mentally endeavored to transfer from one highway to another* via this pictured Interchange, we find it seetns to be a - somewhat complex situation. Perhaps it isn't as bad when you drive on it, aided by plenty of directional signs. A few years back most of our highway intersections had wide curves connecting intersecting highways. Now the engineering calls for elimination of all the curves, and bringing everything up to a straight "T" crossing. A few years back, highway 18 swung north from Wesley, - then east , then south to Hutchins, with two railroad crossing enroute, Later, the new stretch of highway 18 was buih between Wesley and Hutchins, the best in this area. Now, the new STATE FINANCIAL TROUBLES We have become quite used to the fact that the Federal government is operating by deficit Spending, that is spending more than is taken in. But not until recently has it become quite so evident that a number of states are doing the same thing. Fortunately, Iowa's financial situation isn't that bad. We seem to be at least break' ing even, or winding up with a little surplus. In the Federal government only Congress can appropriate. In state governments, only the state legislature can appropriate. If states are finding themselves in financial trouble it is simply because there has been more money appro priated than there is revenue to back up the expenditures — deficit spending in other words. Part of the fault lies at the dooy of the state legislatures responsible. But doesn't more of it lie with, the people themselves, who follow the I j i •*&• **v .,*J jiJ^isJii,, highway 18 is going to come through north of leadership of a few in seeking more mortey'for Wesley again, and again traveling over a portion of the "old" No. 18. It seems as though with every new set of highway engineers we get a new set of ideas, and consequent changes. It is of course only incidental that every one Of these changes is pretty costly. So, wliile the new super-highway interchanges may, seem to be confusing today, they may not be there long. The next set of engineers will revamp the whole thing. * * * X • $$ VERSUS $75 Former Iowa Governor Leo Hoegh, now director, of the Office of Civil and Defense Mob; ilization,] is in hot water.' He is said "to favor a radiation detector that costs $75 to manufacture. But an Inventor of high repute, scientific member of the Atomic Energy Commission, says one has been developed that can be attached ,to any radio and cost only $5, thus putting it in the financial reach of almost anyone who is interested in -hearing a warning sound when radioactive fallout reaches a dangerous point, i The' general idea seems to be why spend only $5 when you can get another just about as good fof $75? i' . * ( ,, * *, LOOKING AT-OUR OWN SHORTCOMING Decorah Journal: — Any one of us could,eliminate many,,of our shortcomings if we would just give them as much attention as we give the shortcomings of others'. ' 1 -,' , > *,' \ * * Today's successful politician seems to be one who can get in. the public eye without irritating it. ' ''••.' . - - ' ^ • "I have tome company trashiest to gel out, MU* Fogg,, when you finish running off the Church Bulletin for Argyle, the Boy; Scout program for South, the PTA rimute. for Cartwnght . . ." i i'/'' r''' fe; i&sjv this, for that, here and there. All public expen diUirefe are paid for by the people, in the long run. If the public purse is empty, only money from citizens themselves can replenish it. It is all well and good to refer to a state as being "miserly" or "shortsighted" or "too conservative" in making appropriations, but after they ore made only the people will pay the bill. It "might be well to remember that the next time someone wants you to make a phone call, or send a telegram, or otherwise, bring pressure to bear in behalf of legislation to, 1 spend more money. * r * * DEADLY GUESSWORK St. Louis Post-Dttpaich: — The doubling of the official estimate of how much strontium-QO accumulation in the human body is "tolerable" goes to show how meaningless such estimates really are. With commendable candor, the National Committee on Radiation Protection and Mea-, surements does not even pretend that its estimated amount is safe, but says it should result in little if any damage. , .At- 1 the same time an equally official source is explaining that this "little-'df. any damage" will consist- ^of"< premature deaths, stillbirths; leukemia, bone cancer "and genetic aberrations for the'next, 70 years, from'radioactive poisons al-' ''ready unloosed into the atmosphere, 'Official proclamations that .such'and such amounts of strontium-90 or of radiation may be considered "safe," or "tolerable," are dangerously misleading. The only scientists whose specialty ^qualifies them to speak with authority, the geneticists, say any at all is dangerous. Estimates of some sort must_ be set by the Government for workers with radioactive materials, since they are exposed by. the nature of their work, But when these estimates are applied .'to the genera] population the effect is to delude mahy'"'people into accepting a rank guess, based on insufficient knowledge, as a scientific fact,' It E. Call Street-jPh. CY 4-3535-Algona, Iowa . g no belfer than pseudo . sc i encei or plain charla- tanry. -•" v 1 :•'•'"'. When'these vague guesses can be doubled, as in the case of strontium-90 now, or halved as in the recent case of the estimates of fallout rate, -it should be clear- enough to everyone that they cannot safely be taken seriously. * * '• * DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME Grinnell Herald-Register — With April comes the annual daylight savings time mix-up. Most of Iowa remains on standard time. The mix-up within the state is relatively minor. But travelers run into great sport as they pass from daylight savings time to standard to daylight to standard zones with confusing regularity. Television also take's a big share of the confusion load as the Eastern programs jbriginate, on a daylight time basis and are 1 taped and held for later release in most of the standard zones. We are always amused 'at, the time confusion that results when announcers attempt to tell the nation when the program might be viewed ,— making sure that they* tell the viewers that in any circumstance, he should consult his TV directory for the actual showing. v ' • ,- , Personally, prior to coming to Iowa, we always lived in daylight savings time zones. We found the extra hour of leisure most welcome. However, sentiment in Iowa as well ss, many other states seems opposed to- daylight savings time and we assume that for many .years to come the time mix-up will be a regular occurance. * *, *' *•' A good teacher is someone who can understand those not good at explaining and explain to those not very good at understanding. washin^tgn r ' A JPWMy Report from^he^Nation't Capital by Ray Vernon .__ TAXPAYER — SUPER SALESMEN AT WORK ibusinessme I n;y; in — When a new government takes over in Central or South Amer- FOR THE Fawners and rural communities would do.
