About all we cdn ask--is this! what in the world,vyould crop surplus have beert'like WITH- OUlf^'feed'grain.'pr0g ¥ ram; that curtailed acre*•"- ' 'hibi'ting all kinds of emotiondl friendship with Russia. The same can be said for a' few other of the new African leaders, too. All this time the United Stdtes has been Ihe major underwriter of these nations,, financing their every whim, and making every effort to be a good big brother to new "republics." ' The good-will efforts are getting nowhere. Now the Kennedy administration has decided to postpone decision on donating 80 million dollars to build a dam in Ghana, In view of Nkrumah's antics. This is probably the wisest move yet made in Africa. Some of .our own people may cry that the Russians now have a chance to completely step lh and dominate Ghana — and other African countries. The chance may be there, but we seriously ' doubt that Russia is foolish enough to think it can financially support, build, maintain . and pamper every little splinter country in the giant continent of Africa for long. If they do, they will not find that their efforts are being properly appreciated. None of these new countries to date: has shown any Willingness fo reciprocate with benefactors. Eve.n in Egypt, where we pulled out of supporting the Aswan, dam project { and Russia stepped into the breach, trouble has developed. Ill will is growing between Russia and Egypt as work progresses. By the time the dam is through Egypt will have had about 'all of Russia it wants— and that was primarily money and know-how, , . One of the best ways to make friends in Africa might be to act -kindly at a distance, and let them settle their own problems. ^ei c4 etfi W ^i *- a, *'v< —^^*™B«^ >'tifcb£, -t r rtf-1 '«• %e^ 1 ' ' ^M> t 'V', '.. ,, '«.'i«.

OF?JCIAI, CITY ANR CPVNTV NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST on the defense of Laos, and cities it as the first failure of the new President in the field of foreign relations. If the American people accept this as valid criticism, they will prove to have a very short memory indeed. Perhaps Mr Miller himself has a short memory, and should be reminded of a few facts concerning Laos, which was virtually abandoned to communism as far back as last November, several weeks before Kennedy went, into office. The fact that is most convenient for Mr Miller to forget, however, and the one that should be paramount in the minds of the American people as they judge the events of the past several months, has to do with military, not political decisions. It has been very reliabjy reported that the new Kennedy administration was prepared to make the political moves necessary to involve our country in the fight for freedom 'in Laos. Militarily speaking, however, it was an impqssi- ble decision-to make. For Kennedy was to find that during the previous eight years all military planning was concentrated upon the theory of '_„ massive retaliatiqh 1p.the event of nuclear attack '"Upon oflr, country," 1 'vVlifri no qllowance-.glye.n fojr the fighting of small; brush-fire wars. We could not go into Labs at all — we'simply did not have the means to do so at our ready disposal. The communists knew -this — and acted accordingly. Our country was prepared to wipe out Russia in the event they attacked us, but we were not able- to defend the freedom of a small country halfway around the globe. So long as this line of military thinking prevailed in our government, the communists could continue to make piecemeal grabs of land ahd people. Now .that our military planning includes small-scale warfare, another Laos might be prevented. * * * IF GOLDWATER WERE PRESIDENT Grundy Register — Senator Barry Goldwater started late to become a candidate for President in 1960. He is. starting earlier as a candidate for the election in 1964, He has been making more speeches than any other national figure during late months and he draws good crowds at all of his meetings. Senator Goldwater was in Des Moines Saturday and was greeted by 3500 cheering republicans at Veterans building. In his speech he said: "We don't care what it will take to beat the Communists. We don't want war, but we are not afraid of war. If we took a vote now of the American people, we would be in Cuba tomorrow." . | •ctfi4t : If the Arizona senator were President now, we would not only be near war but we would probably be in it. The Senator was right whert he said, "We don't want war," He should have added that we will use all honorable means to keep gut of war. That is what we have'f?«M?rv doing for several years. We are-sure a majority of American people want it that way. > * * * • "The word is silver, Silence is Gold Repeat only half Of what you are told." — Bayard News The dispute over whether-Ho er Alans' is as good as Babe Ru or whether Joe Louis could have licked Jack Dempsey is no less heated than one now going on in Washington. That is, did P^esi*.. dent Kennedy come out on top in his tough struggle with the first session of the 8?th Congress? - ' It all depends on whom you' ask the question. The - NeW' Frontiersmen insist Mr. Kenne* dy scored the greatest first-yea* legislative' record in history. Not so, say the Republicans and most conservative Democrats. J i Naturally, a lot of what the' President requested was passed by Congress. But how much" 01^' this is major legislation- and;' how much of it is minor again depends on the view point. .. . ' ' "W.* The other day a couple of top White House assistants met with 1 newspapermen and .gave them what they thought would be ia achievement. Bui the other team (they have an elephant for a .mascot) ridicules any suggestion that the Peace Corps is either new or major in the way,, of legislation. They say it's jtist a new name for an old idea; that it was really thought up by the* Eisenhower Administration. » As far las' we are concerned ,the reader will have to make up his own mind on this one. ', let us bear in mind that this is no Sunday afternoon ball game. And we are not just spectators because what ever Congress does it is bound to us either directly or in-' ous Congress has treated the new Administration. But it's hard On ihe surface there is a lot of bitterness in this .Whole matter of legislation since'the issues are sometimes such that emotions are aroused and the feelings are tense and strained.

So it came to pass that the "secret" briefing was all ovei town before you could say Jack Robinson. And this was all the opposition needed to make its own "box score" on how well —or how poorly;—Kennedy fared? with Congress; 4 , ; •;; .The situation quickly became', one of Utmost confusion to any^ one on the sidelines trying to- find out who really won the r , ball game. As far as ihe White House is concerned Kennedy got 33 "major bills" through Congress. They say this compares with 12 major bills in the first year of the Ei-. senhower administration and! only -11 passed during the now-* famous First Hundred Days or the Rposevelt administration when the Nation struggled to' pull itself out of a grim depression. l If we go back over the record we find that on February 21 the' President gave Democratic lead-, ers in Congress a 16-point priority list of • legislation he said he hoped could be passed at the earliest opportunity, Eleven of these "priority" from an increase in the minimum' wage law to the creation of an office to boost international travel. Congress postponed action of fou? of the. other five. These included health care for the aged Under Social Security; federal aid for medical education and search; 'federal aid for col education • and an easing of .„. striqtjqns on trade with Iron Cur, tain countries. Mr. Kennedy sujf» : ' fered prpbably his greatest de*J feat when Congress flatly refuse' ed to approve using federal money for schpol construction and teachers' salaries. • ,_o—, This*:would, seem to be a fairly good batting average in any league, gut we come up against this business again of trying to figuife oUt thfe final score in the Kenndey-versus-Congress c o n-. tt's^. It's lipt so simple and we reach a point of comparing apples and oranges. Mr. Kennedy's opponents laugh at this list of 33 "major bills" listed above. They go so fur as to claim it's downright dis.^ honest to brand some of them as anything more than minor or routine legislation. Let's examine the Peace Corp?, for example. That's one of the 83. The Administration has bally- hoot'd the Peace Corps at every opportunity, insisting. it will make friends for the them right or it may prove them wrong. The important thing, we feel, is that in either case they believed.they were acting in tht best interest of all of -us. Professional Directory SOMETHING IN COMMON?
