Editorials *** Features *** Comments Introducing, "The Man Who Welcome, Dick Nixon Introducing, "the man who . . ." That phrase, or one similar, will be sounded today when Richard M. "Dick" Nixon appears before a Republican Centra] Committee fund-raising banquet at Eureka Inn, and again at a public address in the Slate Theater. In this case, "the man who . . ." can be followed by a long list of accomplishments, including those of having been Vice President oÂ£ the United States, Senator, author, world traveler--and possibly future Governor of the State of California. Adding to the public interest in Nixon's visit is the author designation, for his new book, "Six Crises," only recently hit the book stands. The man who weathered those crises--all of national as well as personal importance--has become one of the most controversial American political figures in many years. Regardless of political affiliation, "Six Crises" is interesting reading, and provides an insight to the acutely significant abilities of Dick Nixon. Today this important figure in the futures of both the State of California and the Nation is visiting Ilutnboldt County and deserves to be given the traditional reception acclaimed as outstanding by other public figures and perhaps remembered by Nixon from visits in earlier years. It would be well for as many members of the public as possible--regardless of political leanings-to hear Nixon during his local appearance. The issues and the candidates involved arc of importance to us all. And how else but by seeing, hearing and analyzing the candidates can the truly democratic voter make an intelligent decision at the polls? II is not necessary for a debater to agree with his opponent, but it is necessary he listen to the foe's points if he is to organize his rebuttal. To Dick Nixon we say in advance, "Thanks forgiving this corner of California an opportunity to judge you first-hand." May we extend a hearty "Welcome to Humboldt," for ourselves and the people of this county, to "the man who . . ." But This Needs Courage Wages chase the cost of living. Or is it the other way about? One section of the economy makes a "hardship" case; the old, old cliches about cost of living and injustice are produced and demands for wage increases are met. Perhaps in some cases the demands can be justified in relation to the rest of the economy. But it never ends there. Others move upward, too. In .some circles the suspicion is growing that there is a victim and that it is neither the employe nor the employer, but the national interest. In Britain a wage freeze was imposed last July. This is now being replaced by a "national wage policy" geared to industrial productivity. An entirely new J';ictor. "the national interest," will be introduced into all wage negotiations. As the United Kingdom Information Office describes it: "Arguments based on the cost of living or the I rends of profits or productivity in a particular industry should no longer be taken as the sole basis for a wage increase. Nor should comparisons with pay rates in other industries. These are still relevant, but more consideration must be given to the national interest." It is lime this was said. Many are wailing for political parties in their countries to muster their courage, stop concentrating on vote-getting and start t h i n k i n g about the national interest, and introduce something like it. NATIONAL WHIRLIGIG * * * * * * * * * * News Behind the News WASHINGTON -- The normally astute Waller P. Keulher recently com milled a blunder that places President Kennedy's broad tarif: reduction program in greatci jeopardy than it already faces from the proteclionist bloc. The AFL - CIO vice-president who" also heads the United Auto mobile Workers' Union, as we! as APL-CIO .President George I Meany, favor the White House proposal. They deny that high domestic wages have priced American goods out of the foreign market. Many of their local units disagree with their attitude, insisting [hat industries employing their members will be hurt. Management has always raiscc (he question of the wage differentia! when Ihe major unions demanded pay boosts, shorter hours and additional fringe benefits The Meauy - Rcuthcr report has seen that the American workers greater productivity compensates for the discrepancy in domestic and foreign labor costs. Wants Pay Rises Abroad -Now, however, Mr. Reuther is bombarding the Government and American firms with demands that they narrow the gap by forcing foreign interests to raise pay nearer to our level. He is especially concerned about the 400,000 or 500,000 compact cars imported into this country annually. Mr. Reuther's activities in this field are more than vocal. Apparently through his influence at Washington, he obtained the key post in the battle over wages for one of his disciples. He is George C. Weaver, Assistant Secretary of Labor and a member of the CIO national staff since 3941. He has held several other Government positions where the interests of the unions were involved. The Lighter Side In Washington By DICK WEST WASHINGTON ( U P I ) - More and more, I find myself tending lo be a believer in FLOPEP. FLO PEP is a name I made up in honor of Kep. Daniel ,1. Flood, D-Pa. It stands for "Flood's Law of Pentagon Excess Population," which he slater! as follows: "I could drive down to the 3 entagon with a platoon of Marines, and 10 Greyhound buses. and pick up every fourth char- nc er, civilian or military, anc take them away, and nobody bui lis family would ever know he was gone for Ihe next decade." The reason I am beginning to regard FLOPEP as one of the eternal verities is because I am convinced thai every fourth person in the Pentagon is engaged in Ihe manufacture of abbrevia- ions. If my assumpl ion is correct . icn their departure no! only would pass unnoticed, but would e a blessing as well. The stAfitfcring rate at which abbreviations are bring fabricated in the Pentagon was impressed n ion me :K 1 w:is lenfinf IhrouL'h fairly familiar to the average English speaking layman. But how many literate Americans can cope with this sentence: "NUDETS will detect, locate, and report nuclear detonations occurring within NORAD's geographical area of responsibility?" Although it came from the hearing transcript, it sounds like something the March hare might have remarked to Alice. T h e subcommittee (HDAS) thoughtfully provided a glossary to help t!ie transcript reader distinguish between "BUSANDA" and "BUEWPS;" "PAMN" and "PURS;" a n d "RIDS" and 'RIAR." But the list was distressingly incomplete. There was no mention, for instance, of "CPFF," "MARAD," "OTAC." "FADAC," "STKAC." ONTOS," 'ASROC," "CODAGE; -LARC," -FRAM" or "PEMA." All of those terms presumably mean something lo somebody, as do "ATDS," "DLGN," "SSBN," "MDAP," "ADVS," ATIC," and ".NKIA." not lo overlook "ASPR," "APSC." "MIHP" nnrf "PERT " a volume of tcxlimony released today by t h appropriations i l I D A S l .

Al least, I hope lhal .someone in "CINPAC," "CONUS" or "CO- NEX" knows the difference between "UNICOM" and "COM- SEC," and whether they arc tied n with "CADIN." What disturbs mo (DW) is that ill of these alphabetical abbruvin- ions cost money. I cnni wonder- ng if members of Congress t h e i r vocabulary -- ! M C ' s ) . who provide the funds. When I questioned Labor De parlment. spokesmen on Mr Weaver's activities several week: ago, they minimized his role 01 the foreign economic front. The said that he merely "counselled' foreign labor union officials, su[ plying them-with copies of collec tive bargaining contracts and ex plaining procedure. Pushed Demands on Germans-Now, from Mr. Weaver's testi mony before a House Appropria lions Subcommitlee, it is obviou that his operations and interven tions cover a wide field. It be significant that the establish mcnt of his new office -- or new functions -- coincided with Presi dent Kennedy's decision lo asl Congress for authority to lowe tariffs by 50 per cent. When committee members ask ed for specific examples of thi effect of his work, Mr. Weavei said: "It was through the prodding o the Internalional Metal Workers Federation, based on material pro vided by the Bureau of Labor Sta Lislics, that we were able to push the Germans two years ago into moving toward a 40-hour week "This was the first basic break :hrough that the German meta workers, particularly steel work ers, had made in almost 10 years It helped lo narrow the gap am put their costs and prices into a more competitive position with ours." Pressure On Japanese Employer -- Mr. Weaver admitted that le was "personally involved" in a strike of Japanese metal workers and in raising the pay of Japanese textile workers by 30 per cent. "The Japanese," he said, "had collective bargaining contract with a prominent American com- any in the United States. The Japanese turned to us for information on wage rates anc productivity, output per unit-hour, which we provided for help in .heir collective bargaining procedure. "Their negotiations reached stalemate and they went out on strike. Tho representative of the Internalional Metal Workers' Federation came to the slates. Wo iccompanied him lo the Ameri can company's office in New York, and we intervened with as nuch pressure, as wo possibly could in order lo gain a more advantageous settlement for Ihe Japanese workers."

The Washington Window By Lyle C. Wilson WASHINGTON (UPI) - New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller steadily looms bigger and better m the horizon of 1964 republican tresidential politics. Conservative republicans not like that. Conservative repub- icans like Sen. Barry Goldwaler R-Ariz. They do not much like Irizona, however, as a home base or a Republican presidential lominee. Big states make belter lolitical bases, stales such as lew York, California and Michi- an. Michigan might offer George Roraney to the Republicans in 964. Romney is a political mav- \vhom. the conservatives like, either. Richard M. rick on't Vixon is the big Republican name n California. Like Romney, Nixon lust be elected governor of his tale this year lo be eligible for tirlher big league politics. Unlike Romney, Nixon has akcn himself out of the 1964 'residential contest on Ihe reason- ble assumption that President Cennedy cannot be denied a scc- nd term. Difficult and doubtful ubcrnatorial eleclions confront tomney and Nixon. Jt will not be difficult or so doulttful for 'iockcfcllor in New York. Rockefeller also must be lectcd this year to remain cligi- le for further consideration In 964. Morevcr, he must be lectcd in a big way. Rockefeller won with a margin of 580,000 otcs in 1958. He needs a margin f from 750,000 lo 1,000,000'this car for an adequate blast-off owarri 1964. There arc other big states such s Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois uil might create n new big name lepublican before the nominating onvcnlions get going. This is pns-. iblo but unlikely. The big names' now established are Goldwator Romney, Rockefeller and Nixon Among them, Rockefeller has the early advantage. The 1902 session of the New York legislature has just adjourned. Rockefeller e m e r g e d occasional ern women have a major, 01 policy-making, role in govern ment. "Comparatively," s h e said, 'your voice is small. Western women certainly are ahead of us in many ways. B u t ' i n India, we have more than 40 women in parliament. . .the little country of Ceylon has a woman prime mini ster." "Yet government and politics should be woman's business, because women are the mothers of the be women are protecling the home by going out of it into public life. Survival of the world depends on women's participation in running ils affairs." Madame Pandil, the only wom- i to serve as ambassador to both the United States and the Soviel Union, look note of the sporadic "strikes" for peace by U.S. women's groups. "Working for peace can't be something done occasionally," she said in an interview. "Nothin; effective. If you human race.

"No, no, no, I'm not a feminist," said Madame Pandit. Nehru's sister, mother of three, grandmother of eight, has been a participant in her country's international leadership since 1947 when India won independence and a Republican legislature the from Britain and when she first bad guys in the campaign script The Â· Democrats have com plained thai Republican state officials short changed the city on tlie division of tax loot, that whatever went wrong with rent control was the fault of the Republican state administration, that the Re- aublicans withheld from [he city adequate home rule, failed in most respects to consider the needs of the little people and represented-you guessed it-Wall street. Rockefeller and the 1962 legislature enacted legislation in these areas calculated to-blunt and perhaps to stifle this kind of democratic campaigning. Viewed from the banks of the Potomac.
