STAR Page Nine Cub scouts receive wolf badges Survival of fittest, say Colorado cattlemen 1 ¥ * SM v** f ** ^* 9**$ • >. f 'A —Photo by Jim Slagle with Star camera THE ABOVE CUB SCOUTS received wolf scout's second rank of merit after fulfilling badges at the regular meeting of Den 1, Pack several requirements on his way to becoming 92. They were Steve Gross, Jimmy Slagle, a Boy Scout. The Pack meeting was held at the Joey Winer, Griffin Park, and Keith Gross! home of Jim and Iris Slagle, cubmaster and Jimmy, Griffin, and Keith were also presented den leader, the gold arrow point. The wolf badge is a AMARlLLO, Tex. (AP) - A Colorado cattleman says profitability will eventually return to the cattle feeding industry, but only the fittest will survive until that time. "Those that survive will be those that buy, produce and sell efficiently," Kenneth Monfort, president of the nation's largest cattle feeding operation, said Tuesday. "It will be those that can attract the finances to make the operation feasible whether those finances be investor money, in paper stock or livestock, borrowings or owners of livestock. "It will bs the operator that dan show profits to himself or to whom ever he is feeding for." Appearing before the con- ventioning Texas Cattle Feeders Association, Monfort of Greeley, Colo., said: I "In this very sick industry of ours in these years that it will take to rebuild, it would be my hope that for our good, for your good, for the good of the producers, for the good of the public, we can build a new industry based on the soundness of cattle feeding, the economic reasons why it is viable and that we ignore the crap-shoot and tax gimmick." Monfort predicted that consumer prices will be under pressure for three years but added, "this industry will get profitable." Also addressing the cattlemen was Sen. John Tower, R- Tex., who said the war on inflation can best be fought by the citizenry, not the government. "And if you will raise enough hell about it, Congress will cut federal spending," he said. "Chances are not realistic that the government will cut spending unless the people demand it." Chatting with newsmen earlier, the senior Texas senator said if he were a reporter, he would attempt to enlighten the citizenry about the economics of the foundering cattle cin- dustry. "The average housewife probably has the idea that the reason she is paying a high price for beef is because the cattlemen is charging a high price and making a big profit," he said. "This is not the case. Any investigative reporter worth his salt knows that." He was asked then who is to blame for skyrocketing beef prices. "I hope we can find out," he said. "I'm not enough of an export ... I don't have the staff or the resources to probe this myself. "The Council on Wages and Price Stabilization is doing it right now. When they come up with some facts and figures maybe we can act to correct the problem." Meanwhile, he suggested, the news media could be doing a better job of covering issues confronting this country today. "As long as the Watergate issue is hanging around, the mass media are going to subor* dinnte other important issues ..." he said. "I think the tendency is to cover those matters that are sensational ... and perhaps not present both sides of the question. The mass media have been aflicted with what we might call the consumer advocate syndrome to the extent they haven't probed into the economics of the production of such things as food and fiber and energy." "In other words," he continued, "The guys who get the press are the self appointed consumer advocates like Ralph Nader. Now who elected him to that job?" He said he was "sick and tired" of Nader as a "self- appointed spokesman for the consumer." Tower went on to say the used-car salesman are held in higher esteem than either congressmen or newsmen and declared: "The press has a greater influence over what happens in tliis country than we (congress- men) and yet the press is not responsible to an electorate. Nobody elects them to their jobs. "I think the media ought to be prepared to take a little criticism. I don't think a degree from the Missouri journalism school embues the man with any kind of superior morality or insight." Richard Nixon was less than enamored with the press, he observed, telling of a meeting he and several other senators once had with the former president to discuss the school busing issue. "As the discussion concluded," Tower said, "Nixon looked at his watch and said 'you better go on out there and talk to the press. Those jackals will go off and get drunk at 4:30." Highway fatality MALVERN, Ark. (AP) ~ State Police said Hughle H. White, 56, of Hot Springs was killed Tuesday when the small foreign car he was driving struck a tractor-trailer's wheels near here. The accident occurred on Arkansas 51 a half mile northwest of the Jones Mill. Trooper lindall Holcomb said White's car had crossed the highway's center line. issinger arrives Moscow today EARLY-IN-THE-WEEK MOSCOW (AP) — Secretary State Henry A. Kissinger ar- les in Moscow today for an- ler attempt to move the Soft and U.S. governments to- jrd an agreement to curtail nuclear arms race. But stern observers doubt any ^matic breakthrough is like- Cissinger is believed to have Jit the Kremlin new proposals [get the strategic arms limi- lion talks (SALT) moving ain, including a schedule of ggested limits on the produc- i of offensive missiles. Soviet Communist party chief lonid I. Brezhnev has given I indication what his response.;;* pght be. But the prospect, in view of Western observers, |for more difficult bargaining the second round of SALT pks, which opened in Geneva st month and then recessed to rait the outcome of Kissin- fer's third visit to Moscow this tar. (Also on the American secre- Iry's agenda are the future of Tab-Israeli peace negotiations hd the possibility of a get-ac- [lainted meeting between ezhnev and President Ford ring Ford's visit to the Far last next month. 1 In the first round of SALT ne- ptiations in 1972, the United ates and the Soviet Union greed on a permanent limita- lon of defensive missile sys- pms, known as ABMs. But lim- its on offensive nuclear arms were only agreed on through 1977. The two governments have agreed in principle that this pact should be renegotiated to extend its life through 1985. During his visit last March, Kissinger tried to achieve a "conceptual breakthrough" but failed, and at their meeting last summer Brezhnev and former President Richard M. Nixon could only agree that a new agreement should be ''completed at the earliest possible date." Meanwhile, the Russians are pushing ahead with nuclear 'missile development in an attempt to match the American technology which has produced the multiple-headed missiles known as MIRVs. A new round of Soviet missile tests has begun in the Pacific. Associated Press correspondent Barry Schweid reported from Washington Tuesday that Kissinger will view the Soviet response to his proposals for arms negotiations as a test of Brezhnev's interest in promoting detente with the new American administration. Kissinger lea ves Moscow Sunday and goes to India and Pakistan. He will also visit Iran, possibly the Middle East and Turkey, and will address the world food conference opening in Rome Nov. 5.
