editorials PAGE 4 Garden City Telegram Tuesday, June 1," 1971 Two Better Answers One of the most telling arguments against the investment of tax dollars in a supersonic transport was the fact the country was still a long way from a solution to the problems of mass transportation. T2ie thought was that the billions labeled for the SST could serve a better purpose just getting the plain folks from here to there. Flying the jet set to London in two hours seemed somewhat less important. Fortunately, that's the way the Senate saw it in burying the SST for good. Whatever misgivings there may have been about the demise of the SST were in the loss of jobs in the aerospace industry. Counter arguments were that it would be better to spend the money on mass transportation and in the process create far more jobs than would SST production. Now comes Sen. Edward Muskie with a bill to do just that. It would provide $100 million to employ people in the development of mass transportation systems. Another measure which aims at the heart of the unemployment problem is the Cranston- Nelson-Javits bill to provide funds to local governments for public service employment of jobless citizens. Both programs together would be far less costly than the SST project and do far more good. It will be interesting to see what their fate is in a Congress that spent an inordinate amount of time on what Sen. Tunney of California called a "profligately expensive technological toy which only a handful of rather silly people would ever use." a Sid* By d. h. THE TRADE schools are after us again. Inside an envelope addressed to the "Mrs." at our number, an urgent letter tells how we can make an added $2,000 to $5,000 a year. "There is a way!" it promises. "A way thousands of men just like you have already taken to reach an income level that most men can only hope for. The way is through an excting new program developed to qualify men for well-paid careers in one of today's most dynamic fields — ELECTRONICS." It goes on for three pages.
