v< NBW GIANT IS GROWING ,.^..^_,it Kennedy's "State df the Union" message, as well as .other- current International n»\vs Items, have be*en bflnfllng 2 to the attention fif >he-~American public the fdct that western Eurdpedh ridtiorts seem (o be making progress on fhe (jath to d United States of fcurope.' ;* .thf' ebrribjrfed p.opula'tions.of France, West '^jrmariy, Italy, Belgium,' Holland and Luxem- |ouf^ Is greater than that of either the O.S.' or RMsSjcf, cjr\cH»s industrial potential is greater than that'; pf Russia and almost as great as that of the U.S.A. arid now great Britain and the Scan- ainqyjan'countries are making overtures to join. What, does this all mean to us ? The chief progress mqde thus far by the European Economic Community of the nations named, is that they are gradually removing all tariff barriers between themselves, and that their leaders Have been able to ,sit down as something of a bo'ard of directors and lead the group as a whole, not as individual nations. 'By uniting and removing tariff barriers, .the nations are doing far more trading with e^ach Other on the basis of what each member cdn do, best and cheapest. American exports to these countries can be expected to drop as a result, American exports can also expect to find tremendous competition from, these same countries in the rest of the world. , President Kennedy points out that - this European combine is making existing U.S.* tariff /aws obsolete, and he is calling for a consideV- able revision in this session of Congress as -a result. You can expect a battle — industries which have thrived partially due to protective* tariffs will not give" up easily. ' ' <• . _Up Until how/the U.S. has dealt with each .nation, on Imports and exports, as individuals. In the future we will be confronted with a po- iwerjyl blp.c, one that at present is showing no Signs o,f attempting to exclude U.S. products, but whjch might in the future raise a common .Will. tP.irfttaliate agamst p,ur own tariff barriers. ^ There-is another thought, also. •..f,,:r.

Erbe much in 1961, But in 1962 we find at least one subject on which we think the Governor is right. It is the matter of unemployment insurance and the tax rate therefor. Seems that an Ottumwa legislator and AFL official has lambasted Erbe for not increasing the state's unemployment tax, and liberalizing the state's program for granting unemployment insurance. The critic says that two-thirds of Iowa's unemployed draw an average of only $30 a week. By inference, he says this should be higher. In the first place, all money that goes into the unemployment insurance fund comes directly from the employer. The employee does not pay one cent Into this fund. So it is easy for someone who does not have to pay It to talk about increasing the payment. Secondly, the principle of unemployment insurance is a good one. It is based on the theory that if or when unemployment develops so that employers have to lay off workers, these legitimate workers will be able to draw at least a partial week's pay for as long as 26 weeks. . j-But unemployment insurance was never intended as a haven for the shiftless, the transient worker who doesn't really want to work, his job without reason. And most of these are the ones trying to abuse the system and raid the funds ^ aeejuired for legitimate Workers facing Tt i A . % l n ,*•'•/ , t , " , t^j,^A<*4^'"» fc ^»'4 >t ^""*-~'~^**''"*'^7**^f'!^ > called„& M si&e, iffis-p-tMb Abbott aftdk&ste ' - /' r "' -CSSfif MtM&Jfefli? fhe weather tfas balffl^liflfsl b|^Wfirs|iP^itw^ fact, - so' nice that- ..tulips 1 :;,Weie K s {&ij*rt» (Sink the.Chrls Seefeld.hoiflc . ^- >..,.«• on East Elm, Street.
