editorials PAGt4 Garden City Telegrm Friday, JUM 4, If71 Help for Small Merchant Big corporations in financial trouble, Lockheed for one, get the headlines and the attention of the administration. Overshadowed are the problems of thousands of small businessmen whose profits are squeezed by inflation. Then* economic health is vital to the nation's well-being. The retail industry, for example, is Kansas' largest employer. Without profits to expand or even to stay in business, job opportunities diminish. Sen. Jim Pearson clearly sees the problems of the small businessman and farmer and is seeking to do something about them. He is throwing his support behind legislation to restore the seven percent investment tax credit for farmers and small businessmen. He notes that the loss of federal revenue would be offset by taxes produced from increased business activity. Other legislation to aid the small businessman is in the mill. One bill would increase from five to 10 years the period during which operating loss can be carried forward. Proposals are also under study to increase the number of shareholders permitted in a small business corporation from 10 to 30. On the dark side is the recommendation of President Nixon that the Small Business Administration be merged with a larger federal department. Sen. Pearson takes a dim view of the move, and rightly so, because the SBA would be in danger of losing its identity and independence. Small businessmen can ill afford the possible dilution of an agency that has promoted economic development in hundreds of Kansas communities.

Look: Four kittens, one is calico, all are litter-box trained. Call 6-2667 after 5 p.m. Four kittens, assorted colors and patterns. Seven weeks old. Call 6-3817. Twelve kittens, mostly males. 'All of them, free, at (where else?) the Art Brinkmeyer farm. Call 6-6973. fl Four are fluffy and all white except for just a touch of gray trim. Three are fluffy with dark stripe decor. Five are not so fluffy, two light and three dark. And all of them, says Marjorie (Mrs. Brink- moyer), are as adorable as they are available. *K ^* ^* THE CALL from Marjorie caught us up on the spring crop situation at their place, and it is at least normal if not above. The one unexpected expectancy of the season has been presented by the Brinkmyer's house turtle, Butch. Butch, as she was formerly known, has laid an egg. But, says Marjorie, it is not known if the turtle is fertile. They picked it up last fall off the city streets to save it from the traffic. Butch has thrived nicely on a diet of hamburger and tomatoes. She wanders about the house on her own, but has a dirt-filled box she calls home. Along about the first of January the turtle began eating only once a week arid then settled down in a corner of the box to hibernate. "We didn't feed her until spring," Marjorie said. The only movement the Brinkmeyer family noticed was that the turtle would seem to try to dig in deeper in the box just before each winter storm. JACK ANDERSON REPORTS: Kennedy Forces Infiltrate Other Candidates' Camps WASHINGTON _ The other Democratic presidential hopefuls are stewing over Sen. Ted Kennedy. For all Ms statements that he won't seek the presidency in 1972, they arent fully convinced. Not only has Kennedy passed Sen.

Such Kennedy veterans a* Mike FeWiman, Frank Mankiewicz and Pierre Salinger are virtually taking over the campaign of Sen. George Me- Govern. And ex-Kennedy aides have infiltrated the. campaign organizations of just about every other likely candidate. This puts Kennedy in a unique position to manipulate the Democratic convention In case Railroads Once Ail-Powerful By JOHN CUNNIFF AP Business Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — Back at utury when were no trucks and super- aiircraift, and the was not so highly it is today, the practical trans- banks; two, government takeover. Takeover! As terrible a word as monopoly. Governments in other democratic nations operate their railroads, although in the red. But big government had been feared by Americans almost as much as big business. "Goodness, no! I don't think I stepped in anything" cause of their sheer number, could produce a stand-off. In this event, Kennedy would have key men on each staff to prod the other candidate on to the Kennedy bandwagon. We have concluded after some painstaking political probing that Kennedy didn't plant his men on the other istaffe as a deliberate Machiavellian move. He told his loyalists that he wouldn't run in 1972 and freed them to give candi- of morns way, it was that meant defiance, arrogance.

Managing Editor The wife of a minister from Brookfield, Wise., writes: ". . . we pay federal, state and local taxes just as any other citizen pays. This in itself gives the clergy the privilege of partii- paiting in politics." Is that so? Then the politicians who pay taxes have the privilege to preach about God and the Hereafter to the masses. Heaven is a two-way street. Padre Bob from Denver writes: "Yes, it is a full-time job to save souls like yours, 4ear Jim . . . yes yes yes." The next four clergymen claim that their job is not to save souls, only to preach the gospel. This is followed by pastor Adolph Weaver of. the Brush Valley United Methodist Church of Homer City. Pennia., who, breathing brotherly love, states: If you were talking about the Catholic clergy, then you should be specific." But then, the clergy were never unMed; if they aren't, we aren't. Each group arrogates to itself a gold chair on the right hand of God. George LETTERS TO PARENTS 1. Pronoun 4. Wound covering 8. Remove one'ahat 12. Skip 113.
