Much as we hate to see the last two passenger trains vanish in this area, it is simply a case of no 'patronage, and not enough from a mail and express income to carry the financial load. It is only natural for those of us living in the area to wish the trains to continue, and in some instances to vigorously protest a plan to drop therm. And it is only natural for a railroad, if the trains are not paying their own way, to wish to discontinue them. Our guess is' that the two trains will be dropped, The railroad has a pretty comprehensive set of statistics prepared showing income and outgo in operating the trains, and they do not have the outgo loaded with cost of track and right-of-way maintenance, either. The general public is using railroad passenger service less and less, and hardly at all between points close together. The only passenger business remaining for the railroads today is that which exists between two major terminals located hundreds or thousands of miles apart. There is no stopping the march of time or changing conditions. We ourselves are responsible for the discontinuance of passenger trains; we just quit using them. . .' ..*. • * * About the most significant and unvoiced comment on the chances of U.S. Senator Tom Martin to be reelected is the rapidity with which other candidates in his own party are announcing themselves for -the nomination, regardless :>f whether Martin does or does not run. iftppcr jjUr» • j & I E.

''' "' NIXON IN RUSjSIA T^S $'£ Most everyone^ will agree that the basic requirement to preserve and maintain world peace is that there be a cooperative meeting of minds on the part of leaders of the chief nations concerned. We sincerely hope that the visit of Vice President Nixon to Russia^ will accomplish something along this line. However, at the same time that Nixon went to Russia, a meeting of foreign ministers of the major powers of the world was taking place in Geneva, presumably to bring about, if possi* ble, a meeting of minds in accord on world peace and how to maintain it. With Nixon's Visit to Russia, what was going on at Geneva faded into the background. In fact it faded so much that the whole meeting of foreign ministers was finally adjourned. The world's headlines featured Nixon; they ignored Geneva and the foreign ministers. •The Russian trip has given Nixon a tremendous boost toward the republican nomination for president. The mere fact that he engaged in repartee with Russian leaders is going to mean a lot to some voters. Thus far, it would appear that regardless of what practical good was. done toward bringing about a better understanding between Russia and the United States by having Nixon visit Russia, it certainly has put in the key spot for his party's nomination. of «creeh|>lay and fiction.

Heinbcck Courier — One of the homespun virtues of America has been to work and save. Even though a man Hnew he co-uldn'ftake it with him, he could hope to provide for his old age and for his wife and children after he was gone. But inflation has turned this virtue into a mockery. Americans who have worked hard, and lived carefully find now that the value has been sapped from the hard-earned dollars they put aside. This writer was looking at some gpvernmenl bonds .last week 'that were purchased back in the thirties ... at that time sent a son to college and purchased two Deluxe Chevrolets one for our- self and one for the son, and they -cost us $82C each.. : -rTod»y...the.,.kind_^if car ^would cosl four times that amount. But those government bonds that we were urged to buy and hold are stil'l worth in words the dollars we gave for them, only $820 worth of them will not buy a good-used car. That is inflation and tHat it has done to us. We are now urged on every hand to 'buy bonds as they will make America safe. Won- der'who coined that phrase? > , - , ia rtli -•Inflation squeezes value from a dollor''!!!^' 'a ; clenched fist -squeezes water from a sponge. But the dollar feels no pain; it is people who are being,hurt. And the squeeze clamps hardest on people with a limited supply of dollars and no ready way to get more dollars—life insurance savings are among the hardest hit. Those who w.orked, slaved, saved and paid the high premiums find they only saved a third or less as much as .they thought they did. Yet inflation to a great caused by our own actions. The major cause, is government spending. In making a rough survey of the town of Rein-beck recently we find that a large percent of the homes'in Reinbeck are receiving a monthly check from their government in one way or another. Through social security, pensions, war casualties, and other means. This goes on in every town, village and city in the U.S. This all contributes to inflation. ... .Letters have been written to Congress during recent months, but the spending must go on. The tide has not -and will not be turned against inflation. Coijgress only does what the people at home want ... do we want Congress to cease spending and if so how bad do we want it? money are carefully screened by THE MILK SHAKE-UP i- It's terms on tl j e clt ? coimci1 the Secret .Service.
