Congressman Wiley Mayne has been In his home district and has been sampling home district pulses. Impeachment is among those questions being asked l,he congressman. And he has rightly said as a member of the judiciary committee he will limit his comments on that subject until all the facts are in and does not favor impeaching the president as a result of a popularity poll instead of on facts. But nress reports indicate the subject of impeachment rarely comes up in the congreeemen's talks with the home folks, and when it does, no clear consensus emerges. Once again, as they have been so often in the past, the American people apparently are ahead of the politicians when it comes to setting priorities. From one corner of the U.S. to the other congressmen are finding that both the immediate and longer range implications of the energy crisis dominate the thinking virtually all segments of the population. Rural citizens worry about enough ..-.utilizer to grow their crops and enough fuel to cultivate and harvest them; surbanities worry about enough gasoline to get to and from work; businessmen fear the impact of mounting materials shortages further down the line. It's odd, but journalists, lobbyists and bureaucrats who rarely venture beyond the Potomac or the Hudson River seem convinced the public is demanding more Watergate revelations and for Richard Nixon's scalp, either voluntarily by his resignation or involuntarily by his impeachment and conviction. The fact that only 29 per cent of the people approve of the President's overall performance, according to the latest Gallup Poll, cannot be interpreted as a pro-impeachment reading. What the polls and congressional samplings do agree on is a strong streak of pessimistic concern about' he economy and what a prolonged fuel shortage v ill do to the individual voter's pocketbook. If some of tiiis concern about the truly overriding issues arising out. of the energy crisis rubs off on Congress, the holiday recess will have served a very worthwhile purpose. At the very least, it should act as a warning flag to those who remain so hung up on impeaching the President that they cannot recognize a real issue when most other people already have.

Saturday Review, a magazine with cultural material, folded in 1973 while Playboy magazine had record profits. I never feel safe crossing a one-way street without looking both directions. The ice cream cone was created only 69 years ago at the World's Fair in St. Louis. Today, the whole world gulps down 10 billion ice cream cones a year. . In this day and age the last one to bed turns back the thermostat. Quote: One trouble with those folks who have no political opinions is that they keep right on talking anyway. The old adage that "an army travels on its stomach" is still true, but nations with big armies have found that movement of men, food and equipment depends upon fuel supplies. They have also discovered that when small nations control the fuel sources, those little countries become big powers in International negotiations. Necessity brought about many changes during the World War which sped up our industrial technology. We did not go back to the old ways when the war was over, but improved on the newer methods. The computer revolution changed business and industrial methods in a couple of decades. Now we are in for another round of changes, again by necessity. There Is no reason that the prospect should be any more frightening today than it was in the earlier periods of rapid change. Oil seems to be causing a lot of friction.

Dolphins perform at Miami Seaquarium. Shirtless, absorbing late- day-sun, I packed the car trunk for return to Iowa. That was Wednesday (1-3-74). Thursday morning we used the windshield wipers to clear the windshield of heavy dew, said our good-byes and headed north on U.S. 41, destination Humboldt. 'We came close to Sun City Center and couldn't resist stopping briefly to wish Happy New Year to the Elmer Lindharts. Elmer was playing golf, Mrs. Lindhart was a gracious hostess. I'm sure she received and delivered our new year's message with the sincerity that prompted it. Florida has a law, posted, 55 miles per hour for cars, trucks, buses, and most other motorized vehicles. We "crawled" to the Florida state line, not Inclined to break the law. Across Georgia, Tennessee. Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois traffic cruised at 70 m.p.h. and so did we. How about Iowa? Entering Iowa from the east a sign of modest proportions read "You are requested to drive 50 m.p.h." Mile after mile the posted speed limits read 76 m.p.h. Most Iowa traffic, trucks and can on the interstate roads cruised at 65 to 70 m,p,h. So did we. It was, in a sense, a study ,of gubernatorial over-reaction to emergency, too quickly lab- lied "crisis." From anything I've seen or heard, to date, a speed limit below 60 m.p.h. is unintelligent — and, unnecessary, especially on interstate highways. In 4/186 miles of travel by car between Dec. 15 and Jan. 5, not once were we refused gasoline, and only one small station In south Florida limited our purchase to 3 dollars - except for that, "fill the tank." For premium gasoline, prices ranged from 47 cents per gallon to 59.7 cents per gallon. Regular was about 4 cents per gallon less. Some stations gouge. You can sense it, and if you don't, you pay for not having your personal radar operating.
