Here then are further comments on the power and the privilege of that greatest of all protest parades the march to the voting-booth. "I am a registered Democrat. I've voted for Democrats all my life.

Action Costly WASHINGTON (AP) It cost the Soviet Union half a billion dollars to invade Czechoslovakia, U.S. officials believe, and the expense of occupation Is going to drive the price of Intervention even higher. Officials said the $500 million figure is an educated guess that represents only the cost of the preparation and the actual invasion itself last Aug. 21. Until it is clear how many Soviet troops are going to stay in Czechoslovakia and how long, officials say It will be impossible to put a price tag on the overall venture. Experts also think Soviet agricultural production was hurt when the Russians and their Warsaw Pact allies rolled across Czech frontiers to put an end to the political liberalism of the Prague government. Large numbers of reservists had been mobilized for pact maneuvers before the invasion and were kept in uniform until well after, causing many soldiers to miss harvest time. Another question up in the air is who will pay the costs of the action. U.S. experts recall that the 1968 Soviet budget called for a greater increase in consumer production than in heavy industry. If this pattern is followed, the thinking goes, then heavy industry rather than the Russian consumer will pay the costs of the intervention. In what form, If any, the extra expenditure of the Czech adventure will be shown in the next Soviet budget, remains to be seen. Last year the Soviets increased their defense budget by 2.2 billion rubles ($2.4 billion) from 14.5 billion rubles in 1967. A new boost is likely this year but the Soviets will probably avoid mentioning the Czech invasion as the explanation for another Increase. U.S. officials, however, point out that the figures listed for armed forces in the Soviet budget are considerably less than what Moscow actually spends on the military. The armed forces budget, it Is explained, does not include expenditures on the military aspect of the Soviet space program, the cost of nuclear weapons and the research and development cost of advanced weapons systems, believed Included in the budget of other ministries. Actually, the actual military expenditures for 1968 could be In the range of $50 billion, the officials said. 0M put them in By ALMA DENNY NEW YORK (NANA) -"Turn the rascals out! " Over 100 years ago that was the exhortation blazoned across the New York Sun by its editor, Charles A. Dana, in his effort to propel people to the polls for the redress of their grievances. A few weeks ago, Miss Laura Hunt, a Harlem member of the League of Women Voters, pointed to the same non-violent recourse in more moderate accents: "We've tried churches, we've tried parent-teacher associations, and we have come to realize that what McNAMARA'S MINI-MALL NOW 0PEN- o FLORIST WIRE SERVICE o FITCH'S HANDCRAFTS (70 SO.

Dean Inge (William Ralph Inge.) "I could see from the way that the king responded to the cheers of the crowd that he did not have to run for re-election." F.D. Roosevelt. "At the Lincoln Memorial I spent a long time reading Lincoln's words and studying that wonderful, compassionate face. When I got back to my taxi, the driver eyed me keenly. "Yeah," he said, "they all look like that. And then they go back home and they don't even vote." Anonymous. "People vote their resentment, not their appreciation. The average man does not vote for anything but against something." William Bennett Munro (America Educator, 1870). "You can have a good governmental structure and bad men to administer it and get nowhere." Herbert Hoover. "Democrats attend Democratic meetings, Republicans turn out for Republican rallies. They all usually invite, and applaud, speakers they already agree with.". Chapin Collins. "Power Is always gradually stealing away from the many to the few because the few are more vigilant and consistent." Samuel Johnson. "We settle things by a majority vote, and the psychological effect of doing that Is to create the Impression that the majority Is probably right. Of course, on any fine Issue the majority is sure to be wrong. Think of taking a majority vote on the best music." Harry Emerson Fosdick. "How a minority, reaching majority, seizing authority, hates a minority." L.H. Robbins. "How did you manage to win?" "Well," answered the new congressman, "I guess everyone who knew me voted for him, and everybody who knew him voted for me and he knew more people." George Dixon. "If the Republicans stop telling lies about us, we will stop telling the truth about them." Adlal Stevenson. with HIM in mind.
