The Governor called 'or reconstructing American society m the cities within the framework of law, not by 'ire bombs and treason. He believes that the threat o* further inflation is most serious, and m that he should find little disagreement. Most folks are painfully aware of the rising cost of living. His one answer to inflation may find some dissent. He said he favors boosting federal taxes and cutting the federal budget to fight inflation. Some economists think that cutting the federal budget m itself would be a beneficial stroke that would make tax boosts unnecessary. Be that as it may, the entry of Mr Hughes into the Senate race will make it a maicr battle. And the field is wide open for the governorship, with Paul Franzenburg considered by most democrats as their strongest candidate at the moment. Republicans ere wondering which, between Robert Ray and Bob Beck, would be the strongest GOP entry. Both indicate interest in making the race. There has seldom been a time, on the national level at least, when the general public should pay more attention to who is running for what, what they believe in, and the opinions they express. For too'long, now, we have been prone to let the vital element of public elections go by the boards. The quickest way to forfeit the right of democratic processes and public control of policy by the people is to refuse to take an interest in political life. to Ho jse s"'O ••• job, ' as' T.o r| th at the :Cu.'na !i ST sooe- NICE SAILING The U.S. Tax Court recently ruled that a teacher of French and Latin from Iowa was entitled to deduct from her federal income tax the cost of a one-month cruise in the Mediterranean. She deducted $1,251.06 for the trip as an expense of maintaining and improving her skills in her employment. The Internal Revnue Service may now be looking askance at the prospects of a host of teacher* spending their summer vacations at *ea, in the air, and behind motor car wheels Qf they maintain and improve their skills in their various fields of endavor ... all deductible ! WHOSE MONEY WAS IT? The Pekin, Iowa, high school senior class of 1967 may well wonder about the quirks of justice. They had a balance of $729 in their class fund raised by their own efforts, and they wanted to spend the money for a dance, or else donate it to charity. But the school board refused to let them spend it as they wished. The money was in a separate fund but had been turned over to the school superintendent, and it become mingled with the hot lunch money and other activity moneys. The class brought legal action to regain its funds. But a final ruling by the Iowa Supreme Court says they cannot have it bock "because be srga^-zed 'z? a W- •< sO'd the -eport releases 1 8.CGO-"^e r nber profess o^ The repc-f was equo'iy critical o*. 'he State Depa'trnert and the De'e^se Departmert. it declared that the Pentagon still continued to "pOur out 'naccurale information on everything <rorr the controversial TFX matter to the question o^ whethe-- 'here was Joint Chiefs disagreen-ent over the conduct of the Vietnam war." What can the American press do about this situation' 3 The report, in its introduction, suggests: It is necessary to spell out the deceptions with suff'c'en? detail to give the public a clear understanding. It is essential that we name the liars and the deceivers and show the backing they receive from superiors who keep them in positions of responsibility . . . When the liars get away with if, they usually go on 'o bigger and better lies.' Public opinion is 'fickle,' the SDX report believes — and we agree — and "the loud strong voice of propaganda from the government can often moke black iccrr. to be white until such time as public officials are put under oath to be grilled by members of Congress." 'On one side General Westmoreland and embassy chiefs Ellsworth Bunker and Eugene Locke argue the war is inexorably being won by the U.S. end South Vietnamese forces," said Newsweek last month. 'On the other side, the senior correspondents among the 500 or so newsmen covering Vietnam appear to be reporting another war." Columnist Walter Lippman has been one of the strongest critics of the widening credibility gap between President Johnson and the American public. Mr. Lippmann accused the President of widening the credibility gap in February, 1965 when he announced the first publicly visible actions reversing his campaign pledges and made the war in Vietnam an American •war. ''Be'ng unwilling to admit that he had changed his policy, Mr. Johnson persistently manipulated the official news of war and peace." Ironically, Arthur Sylvester in the Saturday Evening Post last month insists that the government has not just the right, but the duty' to lie to save itself. It is up to all American media as well as to Congress to alert the public when if catches the Executive branch — as well as the military or any other department — lying. Otherwise, in spite of Mr. Sylvester's defense of the government's right to lie, we are only a few steps away from the government controlled press of the communist and fascist governments. Is it much less a journalistic crime to "give the benefit of the doubt to our side," when reporting the Vietnam war, as Vice President Humphrey recently urged some 30 American correspondents. And what is the difference between "brainwash and "snow job?" Semantics? It is ojl a matter of degree, and when the American press is urged - however euphemistically it is put — to deliberately distort its reporting, we are one step closer to a totalitarian approach to government-press relations. Without freedom o> the press, we would be in great danger of losing other freedoms. Best we heed those who are warning us now.

I/ you could use an extra buck — as who couldn't — rm.y- be your best bet is Manpower. Tha'fs a capital "M." I'm referrinc: to a kind of organization thaVs doing very well in placing older people in part-time jobs. Fellow named Clalr Churchman thought up the idea. "I Srst started thinking along these lines," he says, "when I was working as a newspaperman in the State of Washington. Seeing men sit on park benches with nothing to do bothered me. I wondered what could be done to help them and gradually evolved the idea of forming a Manpower Club." He started with three individuals who contributed S60 apiece to meet the preliminary expenses. Then he started a letter campaign in his area, announcing the existence of the Manpower Club, and asking that retired men who wanted to work be informed about it. In time he built up a file of part- time jobs. As word spread, recruits came in to register. Each explained the work he was qualified to do. Churchman flipped through his file, and often enough was able to match the man and the job. Success led to an expanded register of names, with many satisfied members. They paid an initial fee of $2 per year for registering, and $3 after accepting a job. That $5 has remained the total cost, no matter how often an individual secures employment in a given year. Under the Manpower setup, UV member gets the name and phone number of someone who wants a job done, but discusses terms himself with the prospective employer. This simplicity is an important factor in keeping the operation going. The beauty of it from our point of view is that a Manpower Club can be formed by interested parties almost anywhere. So if you know carpenters or salesmen or advertising men who would like to put their skills to use on a part-time basis — or if you're looking for something of the same kind yourself— why not see if you can start a Manpower Club? I'm all in favor of this kind of organization. After all, we older folks owe it to ourselves to help ourselves as much as we can. We're getting involved in all kinds of community problems. If retired people being out of work is a problem in your community, perhaps retired people are the right ones to consult — through a Manpower Club. For And About Teenagers ] THE WEEK'S LETTER: "I'm a teenager, 14 years old. I like this boy who is younger than me; in fact we are going steady. I have a problem concerning him and my mother. She told me to break up with him because I am too young to go steady. I disagree with her. Everyone does it, why not me?" OUR REPLY: Everyone does it is not a reason for doing anything. If you look about you carefujly each day, you will most likely see people doing things that you would or could not do. For example, people driving automobiles. The law <•• says-you^are not old enough — b'eCBuse"'you are not mature enough, not responsible enough — as yet — to indulge in so dangerous an activity as driving I Professional Directory | a vehicle on today's crowded highways. There is no law about when you are old enough to date. But, there are laws limiting the age at which you can vote, at which you can get married. These laws are for your own protection. Your mother's word is law — should be law — where the matter of your dating is concerned. It is her responsibility, her obligation to bring you to the point of maturity as fully prepared as possible to meet the responsibilities of adulthood. She needs your help. Admittedly, these are big words, but they hold big truth.
