April 3, 1962 WHAT'S UNDER THE LID? There have- been rumbles, but so far no extpomejy violent eruptions, in connection with the stockpiling over recent years of Some $7.7 billfons of dollars worth of materials. W* suspect that therein may lie one of the greatest potential exposoes of our time in grajt, profiteering, and mismanagement and waste of public funds — all In the name of "defense." ' The so-called strategic materiel stockpile consists of hundreds of Items, even to castor oil, feathers,, talcum powder, sapphires, platinum, opium, as well as ,practically ever/ mineral minfed and processed, > The government today has this vast hbrde ' cached at 213 different locations around the country, and is paying a rental cost of $25 million, a year for storage. ; There have !beert approaches to investigation- of this "stockpiling", and when some committee gets around to It, the lid may be pried off.JJhen watch but for fireworks. .' ', The American public is loyal, calm and pa- tienjf — in the face of danger, or threat of aggression. But if concrete evidences of profiteering ' and needless, senseless accumulation of materiel in the name of defense come to light, we suspect there will be a mighty strong reaction. . . . ' i , *. *' * CREDIT FOR "EAST FORK" Last week, we mentioned in a not too serious, vein, that we felt the East Fork'of the Des Moines river, through Kossuth County, . should get equal credit with the West Fork, traveling through Emmetsburg, Estherville and up to Jackson,'Minn., for originating the flood of publicity received once a year by the Des Moines river. Some of our readers at Burt have called attention to ouj- statement that thei East Fofk originated in Union Slough. They say it originates up around Tuttle Lake. . , . . ; That may be true. Several ;smal( tributaries converge north of here to fornhithe; East : F6rk. We guess you can choose any of them as the parent stream and calliit the East Fork. ; However,' over the past years,! thei Federal game'refuge . managers p^ .Uniqn Slp,Ugh;hqVie usually referred to that area ' as being the • source, via Buffalo Creek, of the East Fork. • 'One thing is certain. The East Fork at least becomes a river in Kossuth county, and that js nil we basically'wanted to point out. " ' DEATH-AND BOXING T;he recent championship* fight In which one contestant was badly hurt (and lingering near death as this \» written), has focused attention on the professional fight game once more. Professional boxing has Its followers, and most of us have watched matches now and then oh T-V., But pro boxing* Isrv't, what ft used to be, and if it succumbed entirely nobody would particularly' miss it, except, the.fight promoters who then mWit have to go to work themselves. The hls.tory of professional boxing is one case aften another where the fighters themselves have labored for a few years, turning much of their earnfngs over to managers and promoters. They then w6,und up with cauliflower ears, bashed noses ancl addled brains In more than one instance. Not to mention the sudden discovery that they owed tremendous sums for unpaid.income taxes, on money earned but quickly lost, Despite constant efforts to keep the game on the level, the boxing "fix" was with us long before players threw .baseball or basketball games. , - ' ' If professional boxing ceased to exist, would the world Iqse much ? •*•".* * LIVING IT UP Congressman H.
