That Is the tnajor reason the national debt ceiling is dgairt being raised. By contrast we note where Senator Humphrey* of Minnesota is asking an appropriation of 2 million a year for two years for construction of road, recreational and parking facilities along a route following the Mississippi river, from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico, and authorizing 10 states through which the river passes to use up to 10 percent of their federal highway funds to build or hook up existing highways for a Great River Road. This, basically, would follow the course of the Mississippi from its source to the Gulf. The States along the route have reacted favorably to the idea; but it is our prediction that this program, which would bring enduring pleasure to millions of Americans'now and in the future, .will have much harder going than any appropriation for a few more billions .for armaments'or space exploration, where we are not inclined to count the cost. Mankind is caught in a web from Which it seemingly, cannot disentagle, in the ^matter of missiles and spacecraft; down-to-earth improvements will have to wait their turn. * * * "' SOME SMALL TOWNS GROW Although many Americans think small towns are dying, actually about half of the small towns in Iowa are growing say State University of Iowa geography researchers, ^nd they have undertaken a study to find out what is keeping them alive. Neil Salisbury, SUl associate professor of geography, explained that if they can find factors in a growing town which differ from those in a town which is losing population and declining economically, it may provide a basis for improving the economic and social Ife of other small towns. As -a part of the project, 25 SUl advanced geography students interviewed .Jowans ..early this year living in Ladora, 'Victor.w.iHrirtwick, Luzerne, Atkins 'and Newhall. On ^oWfrTD : and?.; 17 they'will interview a member of very household in What Cheer, Delta, Hayesville, Martens- burg and Thornburg. They are asking such questions as: "What do you do for a living and where do you work?" and "Why did you come here and do you have any plans to leave?" The SUl study will include similar data gathered in Indiana, Iowa, Illinois and also in Upper PCS ^ 111 E. Call Street—Ph.

B. SMITH NO PUSHOVER Cedar Rapids Gazette — If he wins the Democratic party's nomination for U.S. Senator, Prof. Elbert B. Smith of Iowa State, will make an opponent Iowa Republicans should not lake lightly in their effort to re-elect Sen. Hieklooper to a tourth term this'fall. Prof. Smith, whose field is history, is young (41), articulate and knowledgeable., Moreover, he has done stints of work for the state department in various capacities whicH, along with ,45 months as both an enlisted mart land an officer In the navy during World War II, have given him a background of experience in other lands upon which to draw. ' ' Smith is virtually unknown outside of central Iowa, where he has attracted an audience as a world news analyst for Iowa State WOl radio and television stations for the last three years. On the surface this lack of wide acquaintanceship in the state would appear to be a distinct disadvantage, particularly in view of the fact that Sen. Hickenlooper is among the best known Iowa political figures in modern history. But it could work to Prof. -Smith's advantage, too, if the pendulum of public mood, which is difficult to judge, has swung to the poirit where a new face is favored, ;as it sometimes does. Another surface disadvantage would appear to be the dearth of good candidates in the Democratic party for the governorship and other state offices. Only Commerce Commissioner Harold Hughes has announced for 'the nimination for governor and he goes to the post'a one-time loser, having been defeated for the nomination in I960. But, here again, a strong campaigner could turn apparent disadvantage into advantage if his party,.now disunited, over federal judgeship patronage, .should unite behind his candidacy. In years past Iowa could be considered normally Republican enough to give its senior sena. tor a resounding vote of confidence, especially after his election to the chairmanship of the Re publican senate policy committee. But populations have been, more mobile<since the-war i vyjero/dfp^tte'rns'/ai^/rib'longefojhe'-sortie, .Rep... (icons will make a serious mistake if they underestimate Prof. Smith's abilities. ' * * * CONG. COAD WAS RIGHT Indianola Tribune — We don't know where Congressman Coad got his information, but it is now evident that when he spoke of the U.S. Government being interested in a site for a new federal tax data processing center he know what he was talking about. In fact, it must now be a bit embarrassing to certain republican congressmen from Iowa who ridiculed'Coad when he suggested the new tax center might be located in our State. It is now apparent that these Congressmen may have damaged the chances of placing the center in Iowa by some of the statements they made, since their primary interest was to denounce Coad. Location of the Internal Revenue Service processing center in Central Iowa would be a real asset to the state. It will employ up to 1800 persons, and one of the sites under consideration is the Fort Des Moines Army post just a few minutes drive from Indianola. This is something that would have a tremendous effect upon Indianola, should the government be favorably inclined to the Des Moines location. Democratic representative Merwin Coad first announced last January that there was a possibility the processing center would be located in Iowa. Republican Congressmen Ben Jensen and Hoeven bitterly denounced Coad, and said the reports were completely without foundation. Last week an official of the Revenue Service inspected the Fort, thus upholding in all detail the original report by Coad. We only hope the big mix-up forced into this area by political considerations will not be a deciding factor in the minds of those who select the ultimate site. * * * It's easy for an editor to know what his readers want.
