editorials PAGE 4 Garden City Telegram Friday, June 11, 1971 Another Kind of Gap The Hutchinson News belatedly gets around to the now famous confrontation at Leoti featuring Manuel Fierro and Wichita County officials. The paper notes that Fierro "took a verbal cuffing from the Wiohita County Commission" The first well-aimed jab, of course, came from Manny. However, the paper's point is well taken that there are more serious gaps than Fierro's credibility. "The communication between the poor and pereons who could help leaves something to be dasired," it said. Amen. And that applies here, in Hutchinson or anywhere. Recriminations only serve to alienate groups and becloud the issues. Charges and countercharges are, as the News says, only sideshows. The most positive thing that could happen now would be to cool the rhetoric until legislative hearings are held. At least then, we should be closer to the truth and have facts on which to act. Old Principles Still Work Area businessmen looking for shortcuts to prosperity may take a leaf from the book of one Frank Brocke. A banker at Troy, Idaho, Brocke can boast of 8,000 accounts in his bank located in a city of 481 persons. Many of his accounts come from out of state. How does he do it ? His secret is the old-fash- tioned personal touch with lots of service. His bank offers free checking accounts, on occasion will cover overdrafts and allows some customers to miss several installment loan payments without piling up interest charges. Each night, he personally writes about 25 letters to servicemen and persons inquiring about opening a new account. No gimmicks. Just good, old-fashioned, hardworking service to customers. Refreshing, isn't it, to hear that some of the old formulaa still work in the space age?

Someone has put the knock on the "use only white toilet paper" campaign. This expert says that the dyes in the pastel-tinted paper products are no more harmful to the environment than the bleaching substances that make the wood pulp products white. A brewery can't decide if it should abandon cans that clutter the roadways to return exclusively to refund bottles that must be. washed with detergents and solutions that pollute the streams. A lot of the "Boy Scout" approach to rubbish recycling could cause more environmental horrors than it cures, a University of Pennsylvania engineering professor says. Some volunteer projects can create 'health hazards, cause pollution, squeeze some older recycling activities out of business, lead to large increase in municipal waste handling costs and, perhaps, cause public backlash against environmental causes, he feels. ATTEMPTS ARE being made, too, to put the business of food additives and pesticides into perspective. In a new book, "The Chemicals We eat," Dr. Melvin A. Benarde goes about dispelling a lot of the panic about our modern-processed foods. He points out that a great many natural foods contain potentially toxic* chemicala that are no less chemical than food additives synthesized in the laboratory. He feels that "food additives are as safe as it is humanly possible to make them." The amounts added are extremely small. Enormous quantities of the food would have to be eaten at one time to cause bad effects. As for pesticides he sees them as keeping pests from destroying food that is needed to feed the world's population.

LETTERS TO PARENTS Only 10 days after Hammerle received the $12,000 offer, he helped to prepare a memo for General Benade on a new buying plan. Under the plan, the Army would base its food purchases on surveys of what the housewives wanted. Small businesses would also be given a better break.
