Report From Cambodia Ail Livestock Producers Invited SWINE DAY PROGRAM IN Mt. V. ON JAN. 7 -0- -o Jefferson county livestock producers are urged to attend the annual Swine Day Program on Tuesday, January 7th at the First Presbyterian church m Mt. Vernon. Registration is at 9:20 a.m. The meeting will start promptly at 10:00 a.m. Pork production is an important livestock business in Jefferson county. According to the latest census, about 83,000 hogs and pigs are sold in the county each year. "This is a business that brings in over 2.5 million dollars annual income," said Don Lee, extension adviser. "Almost $2.50 out of every 10 dollars farm income in the county comes from the sale of hogs." With this in mind, the Jefferson County Extension Service Livestock Committee and the Extension Council have planned this production day program. Among the program topics that will be discussed are "What do you look for in buying a better boar," "How can you improve your herd at a faster rate," "Are you feeding rations that are adequate and economical," "Can you manage sows for bigger litters," "Will we have a lot of hog cholera since we stopped vaccinating," "Is there a better way to control parasites," "What's the future of feeder production in Jefferson County"? Neil Becker, extension veterinarian, Dick Carlisle, swine extension specialist, University of Illinois, and James McKean, marketing specialist for the Interstate Producers Livestock Association will be present to lead the discussion. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions. The Jefferson County Livestock Shippers are furnishing the coffee and doughnuts to the early arrivals. The serving will start at 9:20 a.m. Automat is Closed Down PHILADELPHIA (AP) — America's first Automat, which served breakfast, lunch, dinner and a mess of nickel coffee breaks to some 50 million customers in 66 years, is a victim of modern times. — Horn and Hardart Baking Co. opened the original coin-operated restaurnt in 1902 to provide clear and fast food service. It folded last weekend bc^a^se it was a museum piece, inefficient and slow, in a computerized world. — "We took mis step mo:-t reluctantly from the standpoint A nostalgia," said Nelson G. H?r. ris, the new H&H president. "We have to uc realistic. The Automat in ii; existing form meets the reqivioments of this space age a? oir as well as a Model T alongside the Apollo 8." At the peak of its popularity, before and after World War II, the business .founded in 1888 by Joseph V. Horn and Frank Hardart operated 32 Automats. Now there are two left in Philadel I j phia, and eight in New York k I City. "They are not really automatic," suid T-iarris. "And definitely uneconomical to maintain and By Dr. Carl Schweinfurth Because the United States does not have diplomatic relations with Cambodia, it seemed a daring act to go there. A year ago Jackie Kennedy had made a presumably illicit trip there. It is still confused whether the front pe,ge publicity was due to the trip to an unrecognized counry or' her accompaniment by Lord Harleigh, then a British suitor. Needless to say, it was astounding to arrive at the Grand Hotel d'Angkor in Siem Reap, Cambodia and find the place bulging with Americans.

In his attempt to be neutral, the Prime Minister Prince Norodom Sihanouk, issues alternative blasts against the United States and the Communists. One day the wrong government official heard that day's castigation of the United States and that was the end of diplomatic relations. Recently the picture has become more complicated 1 .

One American ship salted too far up the Mekong and was captured by the Cambodians. The 11 captured men, prized official prisoners, were released last week:. The Prince recently, only half in jest, stated that it was keeping him broke sending them to dinner in the capital's best restaurants. The prisoners were his guests of honor at the recent opening of the Cambodian Film I Festival. He sent a tailor to ! make new suits for them and they sat in his personal box.

Perhaps the present stand-off in relations is the most satisfactory for all concerned. -o- -o- -o- The communist world and Cambodia are useful friends. Cambodia can get aid from the communists by feeling her natural animocity to South Viet Nam and Thaisand and Communists got aid from Cambodia's examples of American a- pression against a defenseless neutral nation.

The larger question is whether Americans should try to determine the future of these developing nations where change is coming at a rapid revolutionary pace.

VOICES OBJECTION MADRAS, India (AP) — A letter-writer to a south Indian newspaper noted with dismay that the newly issued ten-rupee notes have the signature of the governor of the Reserve Bank in Hindi, the language of north India. "I wonder if the appointment of the governorship of the Reserve Bank will henceforth be restricted to Iho Hindi-speaking people or to those who can at least sign in Hindi," he wrote. Anli-Hindi sentiment is strong -sometimes violent-in south India.

On the opening day of his film festival lie invited all to journey to the border village where atray bombs had killed 12 Cambodians, including i nine women and two children. This film festival reflects a special trait in the Prime Minister's personaltiy. He desires to be the Renaissance Man, to do and to be everything. He is both Prince and Prime Minister. He is sponsoring an International Film Festival. He wrote, driected and acted in the opening film. He invited leading film people from friendly countries such as Algeria, Czechoslovakia and! North Korea to come to Phnom Penh at Cambodian government expense and to bring their films and see his films. Here is a Head of State and Head of Government, dearly loved and admired by his citizens, acting like a child. When a Cambodian is asked how he can admire such childish activities, the response comes with a grin and a twinkle in the eye. "He has kept us neuteral, peaceful and prosperous still with a great deal of progress taking place. All of this is in the heart of that part of Asia which is presently full of tensions and violence and war," is the argument. -o- -o- -o- New factories, roads and schools are being built. Mr. Ho Tan Ho, Director of the Division Pedigogique said that, "When Cambodia became independent from France fifteen years ago, only 200,000 children were attending elementary school. This year it is over a million. Twenty five percent of our national budget now goes for education." Here is a country ruled by a virtual dictator by popular demand 1 . This situation presents a problem for the United States: Should it attempt to support him because of the popularity of his regime? If so, would Americans not then fall into the trap of supporting an autocrat? The prob T lem does not end here, however, for the Cambodians also have many suspicions. They are suspicious of the United States. Cambodia has long traditions of animocity with two of her neighbors, Viet Nam and Thailand, both of which are strong American allies. Under these circumstances Cambodia can not really be a friend of the United States.
