Thursday, May 25, 1961 FOREIGN POLICY REAPPRAISAL If nothing else beneficial has resulted from the recent incidents concerning Cuba, The Congo, Laos and South Korea, it may at least result in a thorough revamping of our foreign polity, long overdue. The principle of foreign aid following V/orld War II, Originating In 1947 with the Marshall plan/ was sound at that time and for hiarty year* folidwing. But in 1961 what made sense in 194? does not make sense today. Many Americans hbve come to think of foreign aid 6s a wasteful boondoggle, and well they might, In view of/recent events. Many of our so-called loans to Other countries have been nothing but outright gifts, ana 1 in some instances nothing but bribes. The blackmail has been the frequent asser- ' tion by some ruling group that if we don't give them money they will turn to Communists for help. What we have overlooked is that these ruling groups no more would want Communism to get (n the frbht door then we would; they know full well that given an inch, the Communists take the mile, and the ruling groups in the countries concerned are through. We cannot cure problems or cement friendship by making large financial gifts or soft loans of money. Foreign aid can be helpful only If it spurs social and economic development that are understood by the masses of people in the countries we endeavor to help. Too often the loans or gifts have simply tended to make the rich richer, and poor poorer. The Kennedy administration is now said to. be planning on 'a new yardstick: "How much do the people themselves benefit, rather than the ruling group, and how much is the country .doing for itself?" It is about time. Senator Hubert Humphrey, who has been a champion of foreign-aid but who is giving it • a second look also, illustrated the kind of a situ-' ation that exists with 4his story from Iran, a country we have greatly helped. The head of the Iranian army said that "the army is in goo'd shape thanks to U.S. aid — and if was now capable of coping with the civilian population." The army wasn't intere'sted 'in fighting the Russians. It was only planning to fight, if necessary, the Iranian people. ,: Is it .any wonder that much of our foreign- aid, therefore, has come to mean little to the masses around the world. It doesn't make sense to try to help nations that refuse to do anything to help themselves — as in Laos. 'O.rjto try and help nations where^he money is siphoned off,in other ways than the one intended"— as in Chile where only one dollar in five of the $600 miliioniever went for earthquake relief. Or in Nicaraugua, where despite the U.S. millions poured in, a peasant stood at the cemetery gale with his dead child in his arms unable to bury him because he did.not have equivalent to the 75 cent fee required. Today our major competitors- in world trade are Japan dnd West Germany, Wiff8rTs\vh have, reestablished following World Weir II ,and rightly so, But today they are well able to stand on their owh feet; they hardly rte*e1 rrto're U.S. aid. Overseas financial aid fc a' eo'hstant drain on U.S. Taxpayer!, who hafft In the past made little objection, so long as soft! good is accomplished. Now, however, it Is cittdmty time for a thorough reappraisal of our 1 entire foreign aid program. It does not mean ft will or should halt, but it can assuredly be reviewed/ reorganized, and in some instances reduced, without having any greater ill effects on our own position. ;••••'• ' ,j ; ; * * QUOTES OF THE WEEK "If the federal government really wants to help in this unfortunate situation, they will encourage these outside agitators to go home.

PFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REOUEST CALLS "FEDERAL AID" A SWINDLE Britt News—Tribune: Federal'Aid to education is a sweet sounding phrase to those who believe that If you g^t a handout'frorn the U.S. treasury, it's not costing you as an individual. Iowa is ndt in such bad shape financially that it needs any federal aid to education. The state is hot in debt and:the present legislature increased some appropriations for educational purposes. Contrast this to 'the total billions of national debt we now have. States and communities have successfully met the needs for new buildings and teachers salaries and we believe that They can continue to meet the needs. . .• . . The new federal administration could do well to watch the wasteful 'expenditures, hold .down the amount of federal, taxes so that the local and state-tax loads easier for an individual to pay. We ge^.^more per dollar ..,, : taxes by administering it locally than ty sendjpg the moneyJ.tq Washington, ''r*",:: J.], ' We resent the fact that our income tax dollars .have gone to Washington to. be channeled to Cape Canaveral where union labor abuses have sent costs of missile projects soaring. We question the loyalty of such unions and their members who will tolerate such abuses— and furthermore, be a part of them. * * * ' / WHO IS YOUR COMPETITOR? (Humboldt Independent) Years ago, when the horse and buggy was the major means for travel your competitor was the other store in town who was in the same line of business you were in. But no longer. Competition today comes from afar. The automobile and the very good roads have completely changed'the shopping habits of the customers. It's only a few minutes of time to be in a trading center miles away. No longer is your'local competitor the chap you must fear. Quite the opposite, for your stock and his stock make a better market for the buyers, if the double stocks present better choices then they have an appeal to the customer and they will attract business that might otherwise go to a larger town for better choice. There is one fatal mistake that a merchant can make, and that mistake is hiding his light under a bushel. No matter how fine his mer. chandise, no matter how good his values, buyers won't play hide and seek to find his store. Today the merchant .must continually keep his wares before the public. He must present his store and its stock regularly and continuously to the potential customers or they won't come to his store. Radio, television, and city newspapers constantly carry the advertisements of merchants who seek to attract customers to their stores. The local merchant must meet this constant effort with rebuttal. He must see that his store and its stock are presented to the people of his trade area or he buyers will not come to his store. They will go where they are invited and where they know what is offered. Union Boy»4«H . tf Kids' Wpv Bbys 4iH elUb ts">ISy. Tneetlliff i at tffl* Givic~ Center.
