The impeachment process should not be shunned or evaded. The President himself said recently the House of Representatives should move swiftly. There is no reason why the matter should not be brought to a vote promptly. Thereafter, everyone involved should abide by the results. If the House Judiciary Committee recommends, and the House as a whole concludes, that there are no adequate grounds for impeachment, so be it. The requirements of our system will have been served and we can, in good conscience, readdress our national attention belatedly to the serious affairs of state. If, on the other hand, the House were to put its . formal approval behind a bill of impeachment, the President would then stand indicted and the next .constitutional step should be taken in the Senate. < Either way, a most awesome 'responsibility rests on the Congress — a responsibility to behave not only with honesty and prudence but with a minimun of .emotion and political bias. This is a real test of j congress^ajl,. quality^ Small Claims Court Pending: 331-0374 John Seiler dba Seiler Appliance, Humboldt, vs. Mrs. Elmer Zinnel, Dakota City, on demand of $113.25 plus court costs.

"The ofte way t know to stop Inflation at this time is by imposition of controls."— George Meany, AFL-CIO president, Aug. 9, 1971. "We're facing an Inflation rate of over 16 per cent this year . . . Give the free economy a chance."—George Meany, AFL-CIO president, March 6, 1974. The real challenge of- the post-embargo period will be for this country to develop alternate sources of energy, Including our plentiful coal deposits. Instead of wheedling more oil out of the Arabs, we need to get to work drilling the promising oil sands off our own east coast, so that .the ecology buffs of that region will not have to cut down their beautiful forest to keep from freezing next'winter. We need more oil rigs, more refineries, more nuclear energy power plants, and plants to gasify coal. For now, we need a resumed oil trade, so that we can get on with the real jobs ahead. But we need to keep the real goal in our sights. Quote: We would hate to see the President Impeached for several reasons. And not the least is the fact that TV comedians would say "Well, we got a Ford in the White House when what we needed was another Lincoln." interest at seven per cent from ^March 18,- plus court ' 326-0274 Mr. and Mrs. Robert F.

By FRANCIS TOMER 4f a visitor from outer space were to photograph our globe, the Great Wall of China might be the most obvious evidence Of earth creatures existence, The Great Wall is 1,600 miles long, It was made of bricks more: than 2,000 years ago. It varies.in width from 18 to 36 feet lit width. At any point It-is wide enough for a road atop,the wall. It is so massive, and so planned as to be clear evidence of something earth creatures planned and built. The Great Wail is an aged monument to marts longing for security. The Great Wall effort led the Chinese into such dreams of security that there was little left to build more than shabbiness within the protective walls. Protective devices and reasonable security we must have but they must nOt become such an obsession that a psychology of fear drains away the vitality of our civilization leaving, little of value to secure. In this sense, we have, even in 1974, something to be learned from history's imprint on the Great Wall of China. Last week's Iowa girls' basketball tournament in Des Moines again focused national attention upon this state's leadership in a splendid athletic competition for girls. The focal point centered on 16 teams, but thousands of other girl athletes were the beneficiaries of the expanding recognition that girls also benefit by wholesome competitive sport. > Donald Kaul's annual cyna- cism about girls' basketball was more humorous this year, but little morf> Intelligent than his published vapidity on this subject years ago. It could be that humor may be the buffer between prejudice and reality. Kaul may catch up with the rest of Iowa, the spirit of The Register, the network news media, and millions of young people who appreciate this opportunity for girls to benefit by honest competitive sports — even basketball. How strange that Kaul, with his long hair, colored glasses, droopy mustache, skilled pen, a "modern" commentator from Washington, has a bloomer-era concept of girls basketball that dates his hang-up as 1923 or earlier! If Kaul can't grow with Iowa, don't be discouraged. Girls' basketball has a splendid record of progress, despite the little man with the big voice — on Kaul, for annual negativeness. The basic values of girls' basketball are big enough to progress and survive despite the Kaul boy. "We can't condone rule by extortion," (S.P. March 2, 1974). As predicted, kidnapping and incredible demands for ransom are today's hotline to plenty by the lawless. The Hearst story may be the most familiar, but top business executives have been kidnapped in foreign lands and ransom in the millions have been paid for their safe return. Today's news reports the release of a Minneapolis wife after payment of $200,000 ransom. Tomorrow, if it is your daughter, wife, son, or business partner will you still be passive about kidnapping and extortion? Have we who believe in a lawful society of our own making become so soft that wj can't discipline those Who seek to rute^by extortionl ; I am no sadist. But, f Would rathfef condofle tte e*etfrttdh' of a kidnapper, styjifiktr, «r convicted assssin, than Aeeept their minority rule, by extortion horror, and left, ',; ' s I believe that we are tod quick to bleed for the offender during his or her months in the courts, and foFgVt about the victim of rtintf'-* their families, their traumatic experience, their loss and f)ain. If our society, geared' to lawful behavior, is to survive it will be necessary to recognize anew that we toust discipline our own as justly as possible but ^ "We- tan't condone rule" by'extoftton." it is a philosophy of fear practiced by a few aimed at subservience of many. It sttnks. it always has. It isn't new. What is your attitude? What will you do when the kidnap, extortion, robbery, rape, murder attitude reaches to your doorstep? Our country needs your conscience, some gut-type honesty, more than it needs your tax dollars. This may win no friends, but it is an honest chat, and I would rather be honest than popular. TR residents support thru pancakes Twin Rivers community residents are invited to support their Little League summer baseball program through the Livermore Lions Club's Pancake Suppers. One held last Saturday evening in Ottosen raised $100 for the summer activities.

The suppers are being used as a new fund raiser by the Lions for the three-community Little League program.
