(la.) Upper D*i Molntt Thursday, Nov. 2, 1967 NO JOY IN KANSAS CITY Kaniai City will bit Iti Amtrlcan Itagu* baitball ttam, for thl tlmt being at Itatt, and thtrt It no |oy In K.C. over tht fact, although It ittmi many Kaniai Cltyani will ihfd no ttari over the departure of Athletics owner Charles Flnley. For Oakland, Calif. It It entry Into the Big Time of baseball. Well, K.C. still has Its American League football team, ancj prospects are for another K.C. baseball team In an expanded American baseball league between now and 1970, so all Is not lost. In the meantime, Oakland may find that It Isn't all a bed of roses having Mr. Flnley around, as past experience has Indicated. DEADLY HIGHWAYS Have you ever stopped to wonder at the number of persons who have died, most of them needlessly on highways in Iowa ? The figures are startling to say the least. While man's ingenuity to manufacture more automobiles at a lower cost has continued through the years, the same ratio of figures continue to appear on statistical reports in the Department of Public Safety. In glaring reality, we find that 24,750 persons have been killed in motor vehicle crashes in Iowa since 1930. An astounding number ? Yes_, but stop and think for a moment that in all wars in which lowans were involved up to the Viet Nam conflict, a total of 25,676 lowans have given their life for freedom. In other words it is safe to assume that by 1970, we will be writing statistics to •show that more lowans have been killed in auto crashes than in all wars. Added to this figure are the nearly half million persons injured in traffic since 1938. And there are other figures, the countless thousands of husbands, wives, fathers and mothers, whose memory of a tragedy is much longer than that of the average public. And to those still hospitalized from injuries, the stark reality of an auto crash remains a vivid memory. These are figures that should jolt the average driver into the realization that only he can save his own life, and that of his neighbor. GEORGE YOUNGBEAR LOSES Tribal politics among Indians is something we don't hear about very often, but it seems that politics do exist within the Sac and Fox Tribal Council at Tama, and George Young- bear who had been on the Tribal Council for over 16 years has been defeated by one vote by a nephew, Kenneth Youngbear. This sort of keeps the family name in the Council, but it shows that even in Indian political .circles, age has to give way to youth. To Kenneth Youngbear we have only one bit of advice — don't get involved in trying to put over a Tribal Council sales tax I Granite FalU (Minn.) Tribune - The pressure from back home has become so great that congressmen and senators have bolstered their backbones enough to speak out and now there is serious discussion as to which is the -best way for the United States to bring this absurd and stupid aggressive war to an early conclusion and get out of that foreign land, leaving Vietnam to the Vietnamese people to do with as they wish. Meanwhile, if our president wishes to continue as commander In chief of the armed forces, he might turn his efforts to combat- ting communism in Cuba, which is a lot closer and should be very much less costly both in human lives and in dollars. We have been waiting for some senator or congressman to demand a general election be held in the United States to determine whether or not this war should be continued. We honestly believe 70 per cent of the American people would vote to end the war at once. It will go down in history as the most costly misadventure ever undertaken by the United States. * * * When a winner makes a mistake, he says: "I was wrong," when a loser makes a mistake, he says: "It wasn't my fault." COMPLIMENTS STAN GREIGG Storm Lake Pllot-Trlbune - The ilxth dlitrlet can take latlifactlon In the promotion of former Congreuman Stanley Orelgg up the administrative ladder of the U.S. Poital Department. Orelgg lerved one term In Congreii, but after hit defeat In the election of 1966 he received what many regard at a political appointment to a deierving Democrat. But In hit role at an executive itaff member with P, O. bureau of operations, he demonii-tatod hli excellent admlnlitratlve ability which had itarted al mayor of Sioux City. Greigg will now be director of the department's office and supervise the department'i 15 regional offices and ilx postal data center*. It's an excellent promotion and a major itep up the management end of the P. O. syitem. As we said, the voters can take certain iat- isfactio'n, for they sent Greigg to Waihlngton where his abilities have been recognized. Getting more lowans in responsible positions in Washington is a source of satisfaction to residents of the Hawkeye state. NO RELATIVE HIRING Indlanola Tribune - For the past several years, Iowa's Neal Smith, democratic Congressman from the 5th district, has been plugging for enactment of legislation forbidding the hiring of relatives by federal officeholders. Until recently, the measure has never gotten out of the dark recesses of a hostile sub-committee, and was given little or no serious consideration by the powers that run the House. Last week, however, Congressman Smith was able to maneuver his bill into a position that will, at ihe very least, attract a lot of attention, and quite likely be enacted into law. During House debate on the bill raising our postal rates and increasing the salaries of most federal employees, Mr. Smith presented his so-called anti-nepotism bill as an amendment, and it was adopted with a minimum of debate. Unlike many previous anti-nepotism proposals, the Smith bill would apply to all branches of federal government, not just the Congressional wing. It would be hard-hitting and all inclusive, forbidding any person being paid for a federal job if he received his job, or a promotion to that job, from a relative. Those covered include all close relatives through first cousins, and all direct in-laws. It would have repercussions far beyond those ordinarily associated with an anti-nepotism bill, because most such measures have been written to affect only members of Congress. It is estimated that the largest number of affected employees would be in the agriculture and postal departments. RONALD REAGAN LUCKY Eagle Grove Eagle - We have been watching the development of Ronald Reagan as a national figure with growing interest. Especially his recent barnstorming trip across the country. He is showing amazing ability to say the right thing and to keep his foot out of his mouth. He either has some very excellent advisors close to him at all times or else he Is showing political acumen seldom found In a novice in the business. He doesn't have the training for the part, lowans remember him as a sportscaster for WHO radio and later as a movie star capitalizing on his personality and good looks. Neither of which teaches a man to tread the difficult path of politics where often it Is the mistakes made that determine a man's political future rather than the good things he has accomplished. Governor George Romney of Michigan has proved himself to be an able governor. But he has said the wrong thing too many times and has all but removed himself from the front ranks of presidential candidates. Reagan may have this political ability and he may be the popular leader that the Republicans need so badly but he has a long way to go before he can prove himself to the leaders who know what it takes to be a political winner over a long period of time. 3lgona tipper Beg Jftotne* 111 E.

It seems she is always trying to get me in trouble with my dad. I love my dad, perhaps, more than my mom, but I try so hard to get along with mom. I may be wrong, but it seems mom la always trying to get me married off. I have quite a few boys call me and come to the house. Is this wrong? Mom says the only reason for this is that I am no good. Why does she feel this way? She always asks, "When are you getting married?" or "Shall we gel your marriage license today? I do want to get married, for I love a boy who is six years older. But I want to graduate from high school first and I did want to Join the Navy. You can get married in the Navy after so long, so really we would have to wait just three years. The boy is willing to wait for me, for he knows now important it Is for me to be in the Navy. Mom keeps pushing, but it would make dad lose all trust in me if I ran off, and I would never get his consent. I can't take much more of mom, I don't want to hurt dad, and I love the boy. Please give me some advice." OUR REPLY: You should make every effort to get along with your mother. It could be that the attitude you have toward her is a big part of the problem. Try to win her confidence as you have won the confidence of your dad. Explain your thoughts and your plans to her. Finish high school, by all means. If you feel you must loin the Navy, it would probably be unwise to become engaged or to promise not to date other boys.

It was estimated that about 20% of the .beans had not yet been picked, due to wet weather. There was still plenty of time to pick corn, but moisture content in some fields had increased rather than decreased over the past week, and moisture content was high. - o Mary Telkamp, Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Rippentrop and family, Mr. and Mrs. 0.

You may have noticed that a good deal of attention IB now being given to the question of sex at It affects older people, And that's as It should be. I've never approved of sweeping the subject under the rug, or pretending It doesn't exist. But until lately most comment has been limited to not very funny Joke* about a very serious matter. Truth Is, people of retirement age are often as much In need of sex education as the group that gets most of It - children and young adults, As experts In geriatrics point out, sexual desire does not automatically disappear at age sixty, or even seventy, though It generally grows less Intense, They add that, as at any age, the problems of men and women are often dissimilar and sometimes conflicting, Which means that both sexes should give some thought to them, especially If they're contemplating marriage late In life. Nonsense Ideas — Many oldsters feel they oughtn't to want sexual satisfaction at all, that It's not normal, or Is bad for the health — or some such nonsense that can cause unnecessary worry and even suffering. So a frank, scientific Approach to the whole subject li just what's needed. However, few people ate qualified to understand scientific reports, That's why I want to draw your attention to an excellent article, Today's Facts about Senior Sex, I happened to see recently In Harvest Yeari, the retirement magazine. Here, clearly set out In layman's language, are the facts regarding age and sex as they are known today, What It all bolls down to li that sex after sixty Is a reality that can be a pleasure or a disaster, depending largely on how both partners look at It. Indeed many older couples could have a happier marital relationship, with or without sex, If a few of Its myths were dispelled from their minds. To my mind this article io a must for every one of us.
