It is one statement that members of both, major political parties can honestly hope comes true. It isn't political, it is economic. It has been quite apparent in the publishing of sales tax figures for I960, as compared with 1959, from various parts of Iowa that in the communities where rural trade is the, backbone of business, the sales tax figures skidded last year. In the metropolitan centers, or in spots like Spencer wher,e a summer tourist and vacation influx is a great asset, the sales tax figures increased. The answer is obvious. Farm income went down; sales tax figures went down proportionately. Usually when you don't have it you can't spend it. > i n-t -iMd^MtHl In this area, even with the benefit of some industry, we are still basically a rural, farming community. We are all farmers, one way or another, and the farm economy is our economy, regardless of business or profession. Secretary Freeman is making an effort, and so far has received solid backing from the farmers themselves. The signup for the 1961 feed grain (.and retirement program has far exceeded the percentage expected, and predicted from many opposition, sources.. .'..-.'. And, strangely^ enough, while some members, of the new cabinet have been getting it in the neck now and then, the administration of Freeman has seemed to roll smoothly as compared with the constant turmoil, in which his predecessor found, himself.

WHAT DID HE SAY ? In reading a story in the Des Moines Regis ter with the byline ot rletcher Knebel, following a Washington U.C. gathering of Republicans ai which tormer President Eisenhower was, the rrtam speaker, Ike was reported as follows by • Kneoei "He coupled this tart rebuke on the hand ling or the ill-rated Cuban invasion with glowing, enaorsement ot the Joint Chiefs of Staft." I his caught us by surprise. The "ill-fatec Cuban invasion'' originated in the Eisenhower administration, as everyone knows. The incom . ing president, Jack Kennedy, had a chance to veto the entire program if he so desired, but he did not, and atter its failure just frankly saic "the blame is mine." Regardless of what President Kennedy said, we all know that the plan* ning of the invasion attempt began a full year betore it took place. BUT, in the Des Moines Evening Tribune that same evening, there was an Associated Press account of the same meeting. This account said "Although he avoided any mention of the Cuban invasion fiasco, the tormer president went out of his way to praise the Joint Chiefs of Staff." Fletcher'Knebel said Ike made a "tart rebuke" on the Cuban invasion effort; the Associated Press said "he avoided any mention of the Cuban fiasco." Do you suppose Mr. Knebel and the Associated Press writer were at the same meeting ? * * * FINGERS CROSSED . Premier Khruschev and President-Kennedy have met for the first time. And we presume the people of Russia, just like ourselves, are keeping their fingers crossed: in the hope that this -meeting might possibly lead to some easing of tension between the two countries. We really only have one problem of major importance in the world today. That is simply the ability of Russia and the United States to live on the same globe in peace. Since World War II each nation emerged from, the first few post-war years into a sword-rattling, bomb building, missile launching race that probably is taking as much out of the common rank and file Russian as it is his American counterpart. Upper ea uunes It is probably Utopian silliness to wonder fVmany new highways, new schools, new hospitals and new libraries each country could build with some of the money being spent on ways and means of annihilating each other if the time comes. If Presdient Kennedy can even to a small degree succeed in easing the constant tension, name-calling and military buildup and expense, he will have won everlasting gratitude from most of us. And who knows, maybe the Russians might like Khruschev a little better, too, if he amid the wlvJni of Until Amerfl line ie<l to the ciiMo.thte *Bf,'?y' jjejjn* J^Be final p$ •»* ^ M>*f4 w^tlSS^ **" Appleby here h*» mastered your teaching that wOcjouui (hodd wU HIMSELF—I'm replacing you with him*** .." -, Ul E.

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING HATES ON REQUEST CHIEF TARGET CRITICISM The Farmington (Mo.) Press Those who oposed him only because he is a Catholic can find very little to criticise John Kennedy about in his choice of cabinet officers. The new cabinet has one Catholic, one Mormon, two Jews and the others are Protestants. However, the lone Catholic appointment, his brother Robert Kennedy as Attorney General, has stirred more criticism than any of the others —not beacuse of his religion but because of two other unrelated reasons. The hardened politicians who are always eying the next election" regard the attorney general selection as amateurish and politically unwise, because of the brother relationship. And those who place a high value on maturity and experience as requisites for cabinet posts contend that Robert Kennedy, is too young and inexperienced. We are inclined to view the attorney general appointment as a bold and adventurous stroke by the President-elect. True, Bob Kenqedy is young, yes, he is a brother of the new President, and a member of the Catholic Church — all three situations making him q prime target for carping criticism. As for us, we would rather have seen separate tests of these three so-called "handicaps". Now, they're all wrapped in one package. It is just possible that Bob Kennedy will make a good attorney general and if he does he- will have withstood the crossfire criticism from three different directions.

Thursday, the council was to discuss the question of a new city ordinance that would regulate parking in the city's business and residential arc-as. If passed, radical changes were due—and according to those who knew parking problems—the changes were to be for the better. The following night, Friday, councilmen were to open and read objections, if any, to a plan for paving some 70 blocks of streets in the city. It was rumored there were plenty of objections filed—so the evening promised to be an interesting one. « » » BilJ Welp, son of Mr. and Mrs. Sandy Welp, Bancroft, was named captain of the 1942 University of Iowa baseball team.
