*i ,i '. / •; , , • , / > / jMjjgdiia(to)'Upl6f PM.M»tim Jfrmrcday, Sept. 14, 1961 . The 'deferjs'e' Department has Issued an order .prohibiting dependents - that means the wives and children - of service men who will shortly be seht to Europe from golnfl with them to foreign assignments. The order applies to dependents of both combat troops and civilian employees, A' hue and cry over this order can be expected. Wives and families-of service men have Deeri fallowing them all over the world the past 10 years, and may not take too kindly to the new ruling. And that is understandable, too. . But today's crisis over east and west Berlin verges on war/ total war. It is no time for dependents to be* In the potential zone of conflict, it is ho "business as usual" situation. And that brings up the matter of Jack Paar and his outrageous filming of a commercial T-V program In Berlin, with the U.S'. Army furnishing tne stage setting in the foreground, and the Russian border patrol the unintentional backdrop. ( Of all fhe times to allow a commercialization 1 of a serious world situation, this one was perhaps the worst. It was not only poor judgment on the part of the military leadership involved, but poor taste on the part of Paar. Berlin is no joke, no T-V money-making project, no "business as usual" situation. And worst of all, the fact that if was allowed to happen Indicates a lack of common sense and a failure to realize the gravity of the situation both in military circles and the so-called "entertainment world." This is no time for idiocy, and our people must certainly realize it and act accordingly, hard as it may be to do so. "•,/' * * * fAREWELL TO A THEATRE Northwood Anchor — The closing of the Northwood Theatre seemed even more final : Monday When the large triangular marquee was. torn down. _ <The theatre has been a landmark in North- Wood for many years. What a wealth of information — some amusing, some sad — could be .told if the building could relate all of the activ- 'ities' that have taken 'place within its walls tKe past years. You could detect a great deal of sadness as people on the streets watched the final phases of another wrecking of the interior of the theatre Monday. , . , ' , It is probably best to be philosophical about the passing of another milestone. Undoubtedly there were the same regrets when the hitching posts, watering tanks and opera house" were gone. Certainly the management and Northwood merchants have made every effort to keep the theatre in business. We hope that history will prove that the theatre was a victim of progress. r .*.»•* It's not necessary to grow old and stodgy. We can't help the advancing years but we can do something about feeling younger, in body and mind. The answer, of course, is in keeping in touch with the youth of the community. Upper Ul E.

WALLER, Editor & Publisher DON SMITH, News Editor MERLE PRATT, Advertising Mgr. JACK PURCELL, Foreman W6 HOPE HE D66S v . One bf our exchange papers, commehts that It lodks as though ex-iowa governor Herschel Loveless was firing his opening,guns toward a possible re-run tor that same post next year. Our exchange paper, being of a Republican hue, could see little good in this, although we note he failed to add the usual plaudits tor incumbent Norman Erbe, a strange omission indeed. , ' - „,., Well, we don't know what ex-Governor Loveless may have in mind. He is in an ap-' pointive Washington position at present, but still owns his home in Ottumwa and other property. He is a legal resident of Iowa in every sense of the word. And it is also true that the Democrats will need all ,the power they can muster in 1V62, if ihey hope to win much in the state. . It seems to us, now that Loveless has been out of office for nine months or so, that his administration was a good one. There has been nothing dug up in the nine months to tar and feather him with, and we're quite sure if; there had been anything vulnerable .around, this would have happened; We also recall that Governor Loveless said he would not raise the sales tax — and he didn't, lhat was one campaign promise kept and despite pressure from many sides .to boost the, tax. Mr. Loveless may'not decide to run again, and for good reason. But so' far'as. the: welfare pf the State of Iowa,, is concerned, jw? jho'p'e he does.

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING HATES ON REQUEST PRODUCE LESS, MAKE IT'S AN ODD SITUATION. But farmers often make more money when they produce less. The idea is revolting to some people. Firmly ingrained in their systems is the principle that the only-"honest" 'road to riches ,is thro hard' work and an. ever increasing output.' ( , ; • It can't' be denied'that this'ihheritdric'e for hard work was one of the, basic factors that has: made United States the leading nation in the world..And the payoff for'additional production: was tKere :when we were growing rapidly, both economically and in population. • , , ; i \ _ .

We appear to be pulling ourselves up by our'bootstraps.with the present feed grain program.- Governrhnt costs will* be- reduced* ahy* tarm income increased, as compared with the 1959-60 program. Here is an appraisal'of how the new program will work, taken from the Congressional Record of July 12. , , • Under the old program, we would likely have added another 300 million bushels of corn; to CCC stocks. It costs the government about" $210 million to take over and store!for7 years; each million bushels of corn. So the feed grain program is saving some $600. million in taxes simply by stopping the buildup. Next, it seems highly probably that we'll not only stop the buildup, but we'll redyce CCC. stocks several hundred million ; bushels, Estimated savings — around $500 million^ It appears that the 1961 program will maintain both feed grain and livestock 1 prices about 10 percent higher than they would have been 1 under the 1959-1960 program. So the farmer is ahead, too I » » * FOR ONE HOUR OF LABOR Farmer's Digest — What the farmer gets doesn't affect the consumer's cost much. For example, a broadcloth shirt costing $3.94 contains 28 cents worth of cotton. So, if the farmer GAVE the cotton, you would still pay $3,66 for the shirt I A housedress costing $3.34 requires only 33 cents worth of cotton, A sheet costing $2.35 contains only 74 cents worth of cotton, and a pair of socks costing 50 cents, contain only 7 cents worth of cotton, * * * • One of the things we like about football if the fact that it's a great leveler of people, Fifty to seventy thousand people in a stadium on a Saturday afternoon and you can't tell the busboy frpm the governor.
