On the other hand, if it seernt tho* ths election wot rigged in fa/or of the rriiitar/ overlords, we can bluntly poir.t out the feet and at the some time polite!/ tell them they are now on their own, and goodoy*. Or are v/e asking the ir.ipotsib!* ? That our policy makers "get the rr.ettoge ?" WHERE ARE OUR BRAINS ? It wa» jtartling to diicover that our Agency for International Development (AID/ had been picking up the lab for o nx-wteki courie in marketing management at Harvard Univeriity for 46 women from South Vietnam. It v/at only incidental lhat one of the 46 turned out to be a Vietnamese madame v/ho hod received $8,000 ui a kickback from a drug firm whoso products she bought and peddled with fund* alto provided from the U.S. The 46 women received a living allov/ance of $18 doily while hero, and all other expense they had were paid from AID money. By what stretch of the imagination can anyone |u«lify expenditures of U.S. money to give 46 foreign women a marketing management course, and wealthy women at that, Including one with $8,000 in graft money. A similar exposure comes to light in our training of army and air men from Arab •tatet, all at U.S. expense. -«/ r-e s "•f.t. r.c' the immense pov/er it wields.

Humboldt Republican — With continuing United Statci troop buildup in Vietnam and casualties now exceeding those of the South Vietnamese, the time is appropriate to recall a statement Defense Secretary McNamara made on Feb. 3, 1964. "I am hopeful," he said, "we can bring back additional numbers of men. I say this because I personally believe this is a war the Vietnamese muit fight ... I don't believe we can take on the combat tatk for them." This was the central conclusion also of the Mansfield report which said nearly two years later that there was "no interest of the United States in Vietnam which would justify . . the conversion of the war in that country primarily into an American war, la be fought primarily with American lives . . .'' In view of this consensus, ifs rather strange that the United States has proceeded nevertheless to take exactly the course so many of its leading ipokesmen have warned againsK V/e are all a little guilty of looking for things that conform to our desires, but we mutt be careful—it's the quality of the advice end cf the products that must be considered, —Manning Monitor Size is often unimportant. Even the most ferocious animals become frightened at times, but did you ever see a scared mosquito? —Lake City Graphic The sociologists are trying to figure out the reaiont for our high divorce rate. lt'» weddings.

Reta, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Walker, Swea City, and Kay, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Fitzgerald, Armstrong, were members of the Swea City 4-H Club. Marilyn Johannesen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Johannesen of Bancroft, and a member of the Seneca Stars 4-H Club was the style revue winner at the fair, and would also go to the state fair. * * * The weather apparently was attempting to taper off for an early fall, if night time readings during most of the week could be used as an indicator. Low mark for the period was 50 degrees and the high 89, with a total of one fourth inch of rain. From Odds and Ends — "Bob Laing and Soup Briggs claim that they went with Arnle Ricklefs on a minnow seining expedition along the river south of town, and that Arnie was meticulous in asking them If they had "this and that" necessary to seining minnows .... but when they got to the river, It was discovered that Arnle had left his seine up at Okoboji. Interrogated on this point, Arnle declared that he wasn't even there, the story was untrue— like Maureen O'Hara he wasn't anywhere around at the time it all happened." Identical twin boys, Dean Frederick and David Michael were born to Mr. and Mrs. Bob Trenary of Corwith. Mrs. Trenary was the former Gladys Goetz, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mike Goetz, former Wesley residents.

Six other to-«iships would also be partially covered. Algona had purchased four new buses, all steel or aluminum construction, meeting all safety requirements.

One barrel accidentally upset, striking Roger on the eye. * * * Kent Seely, Algona, won three Iowa State Fair prizes with his Time To Spare By GERALD ANDREWS - Retirement Adviser Be Prepared Seems to me we retired folks should be complaining nowadays about the number of things we have to do —rather than grumbling about feeling useless. Things are happening so fast In this exciting world of ours that even a youngster sometimes has to scramble to keep up to date. Those of us who have reached retirement age may think we can turn our backs on what's going on. But we're kidding ourselves. Events concern us too. Take the explosion of new medical knowledge. Pretty soon we'll be living quite a bit longer. It's also obvious that the retirement age will drop. In fact some experts say that retirement, In the latter part of this century, could last 20 to 30 years. All .this, though pleasant to think about, Is not without problems. Inflation Is one of them. Remember what I've said In past columns about planning? Here's an instance where lack of It could be downright disastrous. If we're going to live longer and spend more of our extra years at leisure — then we had better keep an eye on the budget. Makes sense doesn't it? And we retirees must watch out for changes In housing, Investments, legislation, health, even job opportunities, The economist fellows are certain that change will come faster In the future than it has In the past, So it isn't a bad idea to Include some source of Income in your plans. A part-time job maybe? Or some money-making skill you can develop at home? That would be killing two birds with one stone. Give you something purposeful to do, and provide a little Income you may need some day. Fortunately the problems of longer retirement are being recognized. Already some companies see that a pension Is not enough and are supplying retirement planning Information to their employees. A few good books on the subject have oeen published. And there's a monthly magazine called "Harvest Years." It's devoted entirely to retired people and their problems — has the further advantage of keeping them up-to-date. For more Information, write: Harvest Years, 104 East 40th Street, New York, N.Y. 10016. So keep posted. Remember the boy scout motto: Be Prepared. It applies to you too. Don't spoil those extra years with anxieties you can avoid. For And About Teenagers ] I POMf CAM ] OTHER MOTHERS THIN* \ OR po.,. I IfnT THE WEEK'S LETTER! "What do you think when you ask to be treated as a 14-year- old and your mother says 'no'? The other night, I was invited to go with my girlfriend to an auditorium to hear some famous groups play. I asked my mother If I could, and she said that I wasn't old enough. I told her that if people didn't think kids were old enough to attend these affairs they wouldn't have started them. I also told her that my girlfriends' mother thinks a lot of her kids too, and If she didn't think they were old enough to go they wouldn't be going. She replied that she didn't care what other mothers do or think- I think that, if my mother Is afraid for me to go out into the world and attend affairs such as these, then I might as well not even be allowed to grow up. What do you think? OUR REPLY: You should begin to establish a better relationship with your mother. Talk to her about the things you will be allowed to do and at what age you will be allowed to do them. Your mother means it when she says that she is not too concerned with what other parents think or do. This has nothing to do with • /nether other parents are rig' or wrong. It is your mothei i responsibility to do the right tilings for you — and the right thing for you Is not always the thing you want to do. Why not ask your mother to take you to some play or program?
