2-A! 8 ono (UK) Upp*f Thursday, Mny fig, 1959 <i VACATIONS FOR EVERYONE Wllh the end of the school year, most think of the kids and their vacations. But there is another ijroup getting a vacation when School closes — tbe teachers. . , After nine months of tussling with young minds and young bodies, endeavoring to mold and develop them, to expand them, to lead them toward the light of expanding knowledge, the teachers at fast have a chance for a vacation as well as the kids. Some will take summer jobs, some Wil) attend college or university classes in anticipation of advanced degrees, and some will just plain loaf, Regardless of how the summed Is used, we hope the teachers enjoy it. They have earned a Vacation, tool * * * j THE 300,000 BLANKET CASE It was more than 10 years ago when a start was made toward unification of the armed forces. But it doesn't seem that too much progress has been made toward common sense and real cooperation. AVid we are not referring to the snafu which finds three branches of the x service going their separate ways in developing missiles and rockets. It seems that the Marine Corps has 300,000 blankets more than it needs. The blankets are worth about two million dollars. The blankets all have the Marine Corps insignia on them. The Army, Navy and Air 0 Corps are in the market' for blankets, but they do not wish to use the, Marine jCorps blankets because of the insignia. Presumably, therefore, the Marine' Corps 'blankets will ,be clumped into the market as military surplus and sold for a small fraction of their original cost. First, who is responsible for the Marine Corps •; having 300,000 more blankets than it needs? Second, what difference does it make to the other services if the Marine Corps insignia paraphernalia frfm N«tji«kJ^ STRICTLY uluct11y\Whhrl1ie r (ightsioff;,yog don t wear them" ' ', ' • J'' > i on- parade. ^ \ t . ., Generally speaking' 'the ' American public ' is willing \o- foot the bill for the best military protection that, money,, will buy. But it is hard to tolerate this kind of careless^'nandling of public,) funds, J«cmd to -put up w.ith the .petty jealousy that*stlll seprns t$ r MORE PUN PER DOLLAR The American family dollar, if seems, has done more than undergo a period of Inflation, or Ih Other words a decrease in purchasing power. . It is''also being spent in a considerably different manner than was the case some 10 years agov, Food and beverages took 30.5 percent of the dollar 1 jn 1947, but they take only 26,7 per* cent today. Clothing and shoes has dropped from 10.2 percent to 8.6 percent. But expenditures for the care and upkeep of autos, appliances, and house furnishings have increased wsm 34.9 cents to 38.3 cents. Increases are noted in spending for automobiles, vacations, gasoline, sporting eejuib ment, etc. . The general trend, in other words, seems to bje spending more money for fun and less for some of the other staples of life. No figures were given for trancjuilizeir pillsl . * * * •..-,;..• SHOULD HAVE STAYED IN BUGGY' Iowa Falls Citizen — One of the sad developments on the'farm front during the last few months has been the withdrawal by the American Farm Bureau federation fr,om the international farm 'group which has been in existence for several years now. A good many of the rank and file members of the Farm Bureau are troubled about this decision on the part of the national leadership. One reason they are troubled is because the reasons given for withdrawal were not very explicit. Perhaps the Farm Bureau did not like all of the policies which the international group had adopted ,— although that was not given as one of the reasons fpr; its withdrawal. But in any case its withdrawal can hardly be looked upon, as a step that will strengthen international feeling and good will in an are.a where it is so sorely needed. The American Farm Bureau is the largest far,m. organization in the United States—the larg- the world as a matter of fact — and for it to withdraw from international efforts cannot 1 /'It was a neckHe peddler^-a girl peddler J? -.^ v .—Ci^ 1^ jealousy ' , , 1, circles: <,$ * DEFINING STOCK MARKET '; ''Emmetsburg Reporter: — The market simply reflects^ human", hopes, 'human experiences — and -humar) wisdom and error. 1 '*.'•* * There is one bad lime to be\ middle-of-the- reader; that's 'when' you're 'behind the wheel. whdre Americans need So desperately to'be taking the leadership and moving ahead.

AND COUNTY ^EWSpAPfiR CHISELEHS IN PUBLIC OFFICE Lyon County Reporter —> Our system of government could fail, because of the abuses of it, which-have been perpetrated by those who have been chosen to carry put its functions. We've-all ben disgusted by the evidence of nepotism'-which exists in Washington—with members pi' congress having their relatives on the payroll. Some of them have had the gall to say thai It is none of the public's business if they want to employ their relatives. That attitude will undoubtedly be changed after the next election. Elected, officials are answerable to the. voters- arid eventually the public catches up with the chiselers—although it sometimes takes a fev. years. • -But. don't: think that all of the off-color doings are down in Washington. Over to the east of us— in Iowa—it has been disclosed that one of the court house deputies had been on "sick-leave" for three months or longer. During that time, she was able to drive a considerable distance frequently to visit relatives and friends but she couldn't work. Interesting is the fact that 'her daddy is, the county officer for whom she • works, • In that same county it was disclosed that the man pulling down $250 a month as veteran' service officer, was also on a full time railroad job. Again it was interesting to note that the officer's father is chairman of t soldier's relief commission.
