4-A! (la.) Upper Dc$ Moine. Thursday, Aug. 17, 1967 SHHPIP B IJ+I lil! Fed Up? So Is He! By Troy Anderson In Grundy Center Regit- ter-lf you are sick and tired of reading about or listening to news on "race riots" in Detroit and Newark and Cleveland ... or Waterloo . . . then I'm with you. Because I am fed up with loud mouthed racists . . . regardless of color . , . who soy they built America so they have a right jo burn it down. I'm fed up with people . . . regardless of color . > . who think they have the right to burn and smash and kill and plunde' in the name of civil rights, or any other cause. I'm fed up with people who cry "police brutality" . . . for show me a tough cop, and I'll show you a man who probably deserves a medal rather than a kick in the pants from his superior. I'm fed up with sociologists who reason that this summer's tragic riots are the byproduct of social frustrations. I'm fed up with politicians who would reward rioting v/ith federal grants. I'm fed up v/ith well-meaning city, state and federal officials who would hesitate, even for a moment, in using all force necessary to maintain law and order . . . who would instead abrogate their responsibility to so- called negro leaders. And I'm fed up with those same officials who blame someone else for their own foil- ings. I'm fed up, too, with responsible people everywhere . . . and not just Negro leaders . . . who remain silent in the face of insurrection. At the same time, I am fed up with those who would blame every Negro for what has happened this summer. I'm fed up with people who demand equal opportunities in such things as employment and housing, when they have not earned those rights. I'm fed up with people who think this great nation, which my forefathers helped to build as well as theirs, owes them anything . . period. I'm fed up with newsmen and politicians and sociologists who categorize every poor neighborhood as being a "ghetto." And I'm fed up with the misguided who think we can legislate brotherly love and buy friendship ... or God help us! The Senator Is Right Northwood Anchor — Administrative agen- ies of the federal government have grown in power, size and number, until they have become a matter of concern to thoughtful citizens. These agencies represent a form of what has been termed "administrative absolutism." Senator Robert F. Kennedy, former Attorney General, has now joined the ranks of those who look with a critical eye on the policies and practices of federal agencies. Writing in Nation's Business, he said, the rules, as laid down by them, are "not as fair, equitable and expeditious as we have a right to expect." He lists seven deadly sins which federal agencies commit against American businessmen. Among them — bias or prejudgment, inconsistency, failure to adhere to reasonable rules and destruction of property rights by over technical readings of the lav/. Senator Kennedy notes, the public is not fully aware of the size of this "fourth branch" of the government, nor the immense power it wields. According to the Senator, there ore some 55 to 60 federal administrative agencies with rule-making and adjudicative powers affecting private rights. He feels it is time to speed up reform of federal agencies. Millions of American citizens feel it is long past time. Indianola Tribune — Taxes, which are the price of government, are rapidly reaching the point of virtual confiscation of property voting for men and measures that promise and savings. The people are to blame for something free. The tax bill that pays for it is never mentioned, nor the inflation that follows extravagant government. It has truly been said that the art of politics is to make the people like you no matter who! it costs them. Indianola Jaycee Newsletter - As a technological advance, the miniskirt ranks with the steamboat. As Robert Fulton so aptly put it, 'We no longer need to wait for the wind to blow.' " Well Tested Friendship cf fr.end- Spirit Lake Beacon — The qus: ship is proved in times c* stress. Since earliest doys, *vr,er Sw ss cc — t to the support cf our struggle 'cr maeperdence, the friendship between the ana the United States has survived every test of stress. This is notable in tirres cf wsr. Between 1939 and 1945, neutral Switzerland look over custody of United States =-'-'c rs ,r, n-c-iy enemy nations, includir.n Bulaar.a, China, Denmark, Finland, Germany, H c ^ a c r v, Ir.dc- China, Italy, Japan, Rumai'a, 7n~.icVd and Vichy France. Later, as a potterr. of victory emerged in 1944 and 1945, representatives c ; the United States found Swiss soil hospitacie tc their attempts to arrange c pecce. And again, as crises descended over the Caribbean in 1961, little Switzerland shouldered remaining United States resconsibiiites in Cuba. The treatment of captives, the negotiation of exchanges, the necessary 'housekeeping" as well as the unavoidable communications between the t-v; hostile aovern- ments have channeled thrcuah the Swiss in Havana ever since. We accepted this as routine, as the due of friendship, and hardly stopped to remark the event when Switzerland agc ; n stepped in to accept the burden created when Algeria broke relations with us during June's mid-East crisis. But we remember that friendship is not cast in bronze, that friendship is fluid, is subject to change, and must be constantly earned and re-earned. With this in mind, we take pleasure in saluting Swiss independence and democracy on their National Day, August 1, and in reminding our readers of a friendship well tested in this turbulent world. President Johnson paused to send his greetings, as did the Governors of all 50 States, including our own. We v/ould add a special bow to the energetic American Society for Friendship with Switzerland which works at keeping the friendship close the year around. U.D.M. Editorial Note — Isn't it also interesting that Switzerland has (1) never borrowed any money or received "aid' from the U.S., and (2) maintains no standing military force other than border patrolmen and policemen.) * * * Why Get Riled? Wheaton (Minn.) Gazette - There's more talk in the air about increasing rates for mailing at the post office. I've never really been able to understand why everybody is so all- fired up about the U.S. post office making money. Why should it be different from any other branch of government. We spend billions on fighting all over the globe and nobody gets too riled up. We shoot billions into the sky so that we can get to the moon — God knows what for. And we lose a little in the post office department — which is one of the few government departments which really serves everybody everyday - and right away we gotta boost rates to get in the black. Clean Face — No Experience Adami (Wis.) County Times-He must have a clean face, clean habits and a clean heart. Need not know how to roll a cigarette or how beer tastes; and if he is not up to date on all the smutty jokes in the pool room, his ignor once will be overlooked. He must be a boy who treats his mother and sister and every other boy's mother and sister — with respect and does not refer to his father as the "old man." He need not be especially brilliant at school, but he must be studious and perser- vering until he has mastered it. He must be truthful, prompt, obedient and industrious. He must make his employer's in- interest his interest and never be afraid of earning more than his wages. He is wonted to respond at once to any number. Merchants want him to sweep out the store for a few years and ultimately to take charge of it. Newspapers want him to commence at the bottom and work to the roomy space on top. He is v/anted everywhere — in the law, in medical practice, in the counting room and to run great public works. The people who pay big salaries are looking for him. The people want him for judge in the court, members of congress, senator ond for president, and the nicest girl in the world wonts him for her husband. W ^Igona %per 2Bes Jiotnc^ I 111 E.

Algona's city council passed a resolution to repave Phillips St. between State and North. This was good news to the hundreds of motorists who had bounced over these two blocks for the past year to the tune of rising tempers and unprintable language. The city had not forgotten the two blocks, but had been endeavoring - and still was - to get funds from the state to help pay the costs. In view of the fact that this street was a city route for U.S. 18, and also was a detour for trucks barred from the Rainbow bridge, it seemed the state's bulging road fund could be tapped for a pittance in this case. So the city intended to repave the street and try and collect later. - o - Marion Hyink of Whittemore could be thankful for two things; one that he was attacked by a bull without horns, and second that his wife was observant. At the Theresa KoUasch farm, a bull caught him by surprise and got him down, endeavoring to gore him. Mrs. Hyink heard sounds of trouble and ran into the yard where she distracted the bull's attention enough for Marion to scramble to his feet and escape. As it was, he suffered a shoulder dislocation and bruises. Ambie Meyer and his 12-piece band furnished music for the Algona Country Club dance. Dick Dale, an Algonan, played and sang with the band, which also had several of Al Menke's former men. - o - Joan Hoffman, daughter of Dr. Karl Hoffman of Algona, and Jean Wilson, Des Moines, narrowly escaped drowning in the middle of West Okoboji Lake. The eighteen year old girls were thrown from their cruiser when it struck a wake. The girls, both of whom could swim, managed to keep afloat until help arrived. Their real danger came Time To Spare By GERALD ANDREWS - Retirement Adviser A Sad Case Speaking of retirement — met an old school friend of mine the other day, Josh Larkln. Hardly knew the guy, he'd changed so much in the two years since I last crossed his path. Thin, cross-looking, sallow, he looked about ten years older than his actual age, which I knew for a fact to be 67. Yet he didn't look sick, just kind of dismal. I wondered what was wrong. Last time I'd talked with Josh he'd been so full of life. Had just decided to hand over the management of his prosperous hardware store to his son —and enjoy a well-earned rest. "Just think," Josh had said, beaming: "No more late hours; no more stocktaking headaches; no more unreasonable customers. I won't know what to do with myself." And he laughed. Transpired he was right — about not knowing what to do with himself. A few months at home, as he now dolefully explained, and he was back at the store, offering to help. Missed aU the bustle too much. Couldn't get used to being around the house all day. So be worked part-time in the store for a while. But he could see, though his son didn't say »o, that be wasn't needed there any more. And maybe he had ieen too ready with advice. Young people seemed to resent that nowadays. Anyway, said Josh, he'd quit again. Just as well, because he^hadn't been iceeplng too well, had lost weight (as I could see) and felt Urea all the time. As soon as I heard this tale of woe I was convinced that Josh was Buffering from exactly the kind of reaction I described last week: retirement depression. As he was such an old friend I told him so. And I urged him to see his doctor. This kind of depression can become pretty serious if you don't get professional help. You can end up thinking you're no use to anyone, withdrawing Into a world of your own. So the first thing to do when you're ready to retire — and this can't be repeated too often — Is to arrange a new life for yourself. Don't let yourself fall into a rut through lack of preparation. Or If this has already happened, take steps to climb out of It. It isn't enough to tell yourself that now you'll have time to do as you like. You have to have firm plans. And if you're not quite sure how to go about the whole business — this column wants to help. AI'IIONH a IKM: Hiiiil. ttfl. I'rnyiir 1 l''i*n- H. I- omi, ua 11 41. Kr.ilHit mitiilml luuvli'u eyiui 82.
