Palm Beach Post-Times, Saturday, Nov. 9, 1968" Prayer For Today "Behold, heaven and the highest heaven cannot contain thee; how much less this house which I have built!" II Chronicles 6:18 PRAYER: Lord God, "there is no God like thee, in heaven above, or on earth beneath, who keepest covenant and mercy with thy servants that walk before thee with all their heart." All honor and glory be to Thee; through Christ, our Sav ior. Amen. Deaths-Funerals In The SAWCHUK MICHAIL RIDZIK and Eueenp: two riaucrhfprx SAWCHUK and Eugene; two daughters. Beaches A rea I Michall Rudzik. 80. of 338 John Chamberlain New Credibility Gap Fogs Charges Of 'Defense Gap' her own in books, articles, and speeches, says that Clark Clifford's figures mask the real truth, which is that the lead America had under Elsenhow- becomes a ten-to-orte ratio in Russia's favor. Moreover, the Soviets have a sort of anti-missile defense set up where we have none. Admitting the fallibility of an anti-missile missile, the Russians' possession of a defense system may give them an extra bit of psychological assurance. Politically, it is what the Russians think and feel, not what they may or may not have, that endangers the peace of the world. Mrs. Schlafly Is a Republican political clubwoman, which does not qualify her automatically as a missile expert. But she gets her material from the reports of the House Armed Service Committee and from her wide acquaintance with retired military men who, once they have left the service, are willing to talk. The difference between Mrs. Schlafly and other citizens is that she is always willing to sit. down and add things up. What we would really like to know is whether the Soviet building capacity of 380 ICBMs a year, as set forth by McNamara, has been utilized to the full. If it hasn't, Clark Clifford could have been telling the technical truth when he put Moscow behind us by the small margin of 154. ICBMs. Even so, a gap measured In our favor by so small a figure is meaningless If p. Soviet ICBM is ten times as powerful In its megatonnage as an American ICBM. By all means let's have a good count of our atomic hardware. But let It be in terms of quality as well as quantity, for only then shall we know the nature of a "gap." What will they find when, after the heated campaign charges about the existence of a "security gap," someone really counts the military hardware? In 1W0, John F. Kennedy made telling campaign use of an alleged missile gap, with America on the deficiency side of the argument. But when Robert McNamara took over in the Department of Defense, he was astounded to leam that the Eisenhower Administration had amply provided us with great weapons superiority over' the Soviets. During Mc.Namara's regime the Pentagon proceeded to scrap 180 Alias and Titan missiles built during the Kisenhower-Nixon years. Maybe this was just a matter of getting rid of an "overkill" advantage that we do not actually need. It provided an Ironic commentary, however, on the 10 Democratic election strategy, which was of the "any stigma to beat a dogma" variety During this Kail it was the Republican nominee, Nixon, who was complaining that a security gap had opened, putting the Russians ahead of the Americans in nuclear weapons. Defense Secretary Clark Clifford at once countered with the statement that the U.S. has a better than three-to-one edge over the Soviets in deliverable atomic warheads. The comparative figures, as given by Clifford, are 4,2(K) deliverable atomic weapons for the U.S. as against 1,200 for Moscow. The indefatigable Mrs. Phyllis Schlafly, who has taken the field of nuclear weaponry for Beach, and 20 grandchildren.

Talking of the big intercontinental ballistic missiles, Clifford said that the U.S. has 1,054 of them to the Soviets' 900. Mrs. Schla fly admits Clifford's figure for the U.S. is right, but disputes his information about the Russians. Back in January of 18 McNamara put the Soviet ICMB figure at 720, and went on to say that these were being added to at the rate of 380 per year. If McNamara knew what he was talking about, this means that Moscow now has some 1,100 ICBMs now to ourl.OM. So the numbers ratio of land based ICBMs Is one-to-one, which could mean a nuclear deterrence stalemate that should serve to keep anybody from pressing the nuclear button. Unfortunately, sa.ys Mrs. Schlafly, Clark Clifford did not tell the American people the truth that the Russian ICMBs are ten times more powerful than ours. So the one-to-one ratio suddenly Our American dollar, once a bulwark for all the world's currencies, Is eroding so fast and supported by so little gold that last year some foreign countries were refusing to cash dollars for American tourists! Winless wars, waged in defense of unworthy governments with less than our best weapons for a lesser objective than victory such wars are unworthy of our sons, and our enlightened sons know it! Big Government, buying votes with promises of "something for nothing" and "social equality" and "guaranteed security" promises which no government can keep fostered inevitable disillusionment and ultimate rioting. There is but one way, Mr. President, that you can pull us back together- make our Americanism worthy of respect. Ultimately, If you do Paul Harvey Be President Of The U.S. Mr. Nixon, Not Of World Funeral arrangements win be announced.

But put "us" first. During your campaign, you promised "to return our nation to its rightful position of leadership . . ." I'm not sure what you meant by that. The best city administrators are those who don't want to be governor. The most effective governor Is the one who Is not outrunning forPresident. Right now we need a President of the United States who will give the United States his full time! We were leaders of this world for most of a hundred years before we anointed ourselves Its policemen. We "led" by being such a shining example that others were inspired to Imitate us. Then somehow we stopped leading and started meddling. The father who Is first and foremost good to his own family Is inevitably a good neighbor. He does not spoil them with unearned ease nor disillusion them with unkept promises nor sentence them to undeserved punishment. Disengage us, Mr. President, from this suffocating spl-derweb of International involvements. You were not elected President of the world; you were elected President of the United States. government's response to most things. Whenever you ask a government official anything, his resonse is, "Huh?" "Report of the Select Commission on Riots, Civil and Criminal Disorders, etc." This might be worthwhile, since, if things continue to get worse, we'll all be murdered in our beds (probably by "etc."). It should be comforting to know why. "Education In the Seventies." Well, O.K., but I really think that people In their seventies are too old for education. Today's rumor: While cleaning out his desk, LBJ found a memo saying: "Blockade the harborof Haiphong." When all's said and done, the man who laid the biggest bomb was that old anti-bomber, Sen. Eugene McCarthy. If you think the Democratic convention was wild, you should see our Christmas office party. Mr. President-elect, you have been elected by the American people. It was not the people of some other nation or of all other nations who elected you; you were elected by "us" spelled U.S. Mr. Nixon, your oath of office binds you to preserve, protect and defend "us" against all enemies, foreign and domestic. You sought and got our votes to govern us. Your first obligation is to us. Since the dawn of the so-called Nuclear Age, some American Presidents have allowed themselves to become preoccupied with what our enemies might do or what our allies might think. We must assume that those previous administrators were scared. Thus they signed promissory notes binding us to 42 other nations. Indeed, your predecessor, President Johnson, once said, "Ten hours of the day out of 14 I spend on the world Latin-American, European problems, Vietnam, relations with the Soviet Union . . ." This preoccupation with other nations and their problems has left our own neglected home front a chaotic shambles; we are now In worse trouble than are many of them. Mr. President, come home. Don Maclean A Store Useless, WASHINGTON - Our government has a boundless Interest in almost everything, from the life cycle of the botfly to the social mores of the Slack-jaw Indians. And the government lays out vast sums of money to satisfy its curiosity about these things. Sometimes, but not always, these subsidized studies result in reports, which are then offered to the public for a pittance by the Government Printing Office. Regularly, the GPO sends me a list of the available publications. (Hancing down the list, some titles catch the eye and I should like to make Intelligent comment on them. (I should LIKE to make intelligent comment; but I probably won't.) Mind you, I'm not recommending any of these volumes to you. In fact, I'm recommending none of them.
