lgon^ (la.) Upper Dei Moirm Thursday, July 6, 1967 RUSSIAN HAWKS, DOVES The talks belween President Johnson and t Soviet Premier Kosygin have succeeded in ( boosting the President's rating with the U.S. > public, simply because they happened, and 5 we might hope would be indicative of a j brighter future in international relations. But it would be unwise to become too op, timistic on the subject. , Carl T. Rowan, writing for Publishers Newspaper Syndicate, mokes on analysis of Soviet political control which points out that Kosy- gin himself is only one of 1 1 in the Communist poliburo, the ruling inner circle of Soviet Russia, and is in fact not the top man but the second man of the 1 1. Leonid Brezhnev is the Communist party boss, and the first man, and one Mikhail Suslov is the senior member of the poliburo and a strong "hawk." His faction is the one that just pushed through a decision to pour a new supply of planes, tanks and arms into Egypt and Syria to replace those destroyed by Israel in the recent fighting. There are doves in the poliburo, just as there are in the U.S. Congress, but they have a hard time keeping the hawks in check, just as they do in or own government. The Russian hawk faction also '//ants to see greater arrays of Soviet supplies going to North Vietnam, says Rowan. The danger to our world civilization seems to be that if the hawk factions in Russia can maintain control of their government, and the hawk factions in the U.S. guide our leadership, there is certain to be a collision — and the inevitable catastrophe to the v/orld. $8,270 PER GIRL? A-D-C CRACKDOWN In Prince Georges County, Maryland, the county attorney's office is attempting to do something obey! those women who make a profession of producing illegitimate children in order to collect larger amounts of aid to dependent children. Two Maryland women recently went to the Prince Georges welfare office to claim support for their latest o^'sprirg. One was 19 years old and already the incubator for three illegitimate children, all by different sires. The o'her was 24 yeors old and the producer of two illegitimates, both by different sires. Both women were promptly charged under Maryland law with contributing to the neglect of their children and released without bail pending trial. It is reported to be the first such prosecution on these grounds. Prosecution may fail because certain information on which the charges are based was conlainea' in the forms which the women must file and therefore may be held to be self-incriminating. But it is laudable that at least one state has the courage to incur the wrath of the bleeding-heart welfare workers and do something about those who make a profession of producing illegitimate children in order to revel on ADC funds. On a recent Sunday, at the Iowa Lake tavern on the Minnesota-Iowa border, some local residents were surprised to note an area woman walk in, with her ADC children in tow, deposit them in a booth, and proceed to whoop it up with Minnesota's Sunday beer. Such incidents give the entire Aid To Dependent Children program a black eye to the general public. Sargent Shriver, national director of the A WELFARE STRIKE ? Office of Economic Opportunity, as guest speaker at the graduation exercises in Clinton of the Woman's Job Corps center there, told some 23 area OEO administrators that the war on poverty is in danger of having its funds drastically cut by Congress. At the same ceremonies, he also said that the Clinton center had recently renewed its contract for operation with General Learning Corp., an affiliate of Time, Inc. and General Electric. General Learning is the organization that operates the Job Corps center. The new contract is to provide $7,447,000 to train 900 young women in THE NEXT 18 MONTHS. The training takes place in buildings that formerly operated as a veterans hospital, government-owned. Now dividing 900 into the $7,447,000 it comes out at about $8,270 per girl for 18 months of Job Corps training. This sum is almost enough, with economy, to send a person through four years of a slate college or university. Unless members of Congress have holes in their head, they can well ask why it costs $8,720 to put a girl through 1*8 month in this type of school, in buildings already owned by the Federal government. If Sargent Shriver can explain this astonishingly high per capita cost, he should do so promptly if he hopes to prevent an appropriation crackdown. PROBLEMS ! PROBLEMS (PROBLEMS ! Seems like something is always talking the joy out of life. For instance, the miniskirt comes along, and being in fashion allows the young ladies to show off a shapely knee without violating the indecent exposure laws, and gives the dress manufacturers a chance to make two square yards do the work of four. But, alas, there are miniskirt drawbacks not anticipated. It seems that when the young miniskirted ladies sit dov/n on plastic or v/ood chairs they got either M) sudden cold shocks on bare spots, or (2) splinter dangers. Perhaps before adjournment of the leqU- lature a solution to this problem might be given proper investigation. * * * WHAT WOULD HE HAVE DONE ? A minister, the other day, asked to comment on wars in general and compulsory training for legalized murder in particular, had an interesting reply. "What," ho asked, "would Jesus Christ have dono ?" Then he had a solution hirnielf. "Put all the leaders of all the- countrit-s thnl seem to want to fight into one bullpen and let the bust man win." Thief River Falls (Minn.) Times — Many people will remember when welfare lists v/ere considered embarrassing. "Going on welfare" was a situation to be avoided at all costs short of starvation and those who did remained for as short a time as possible. Times have changed, of course, and so has the attitude toward welfare. Few people will deny that there are less fortunate people who need help, and that help is willingly given. There have been fantstic abuses in the welfare programs throughout the nation, however, and these abuses have given the public a "sour" attitude toward public assistance in general. Individuals become aroused when they see that welfare recipients are given a more affluent way of life than some of their taxpaying neighbors. Affluent Americans have long since concluded that they are, indeed, their brother's keepers. But an Associated Press picture in the Sunday newspapers leads us to wonder to what extent we have come in this regard. The picture showed police removing a demonstrator in Boston. The incident was said to be triggered by welfare recipients demanding increased allowances. Practically every American wants to take care of his unfortunate brother to the very best of his ability, but for some reason it just doesn't sound right to us when these recipients of government aid start "demonstrating" for more. Most of those we know are grateful and thankful for the aid they receive. Next thing you know someone will form a union of welfare recipients and we'll have strikes for bigger and better doles. PIG IS A COMPLIMENT Being called a pig is no longer an insult, but a compliment. Research data has disclosed that the pig is among the most intelligent animals, along with the chimpanzee, orangutan, gorilla, dog, cat, etc. Most pigs go to market before they are a year old and have little chance to demonstrate their intellect, but they have it, say the researchers. They point out that a pig promptly learns to operate complex feeding installations, which leave horses and cows in a hopeless state. And a pig, despite what you may have observed, is said to be the cleanest of all animals. So there I One of the great defects of human life appears to be that as soon as man is old enough to know anything much, his life ends. tipper Beg 111 K.
