HUMBOLDTSTANDARD* Friday, April 6, 1962, Page 10 Speech Curb In Effect On WASHINGTON (UPI) - Overlooked in the controversy over alleged military muzzling is the fact that three famous five-star generals slill are on the active list and eehnically subject to Pentagon speech regulations. They are Dwight D. Eisenhow. er. Douglas MacArlhur and Omar N. Bradley. Eisenhower is in a slightly special category because he does not .ake his S2(l,000-a-year Army pny. Instead he gets the $25,000 pension and the $50,000 annual office allowance provided for formei residents. But that does not affect the question of what would happen i he Defense Department shouh decide to be technical and require Jens. Eisenhower, Bradley anc MacArlhur to observe militar; ·egulations. For one thing, they would be obliged to submit their speeches ind articles for clearance by the Pentagon's security and review ection. They would be under strict in- unctions to avoid public discus- ion of foreign affairs or other matters properly in the province f the State Department ant Vhite House. Judging by the case of former laj. Gen. Edwin A. Walker, they votild be in trouble if they en aged in controversial activities r tried to influence the votes of men in uniform. The department's unoffici; Jew is that "active duty" for ive-star officers is merely hon- rary, and usually a means of aying them full salary instead ol pension. They are in other re- aects treated as retired officers. Strikes Declined During February WASHINGTON (UPD-The Laor Department reported a de- line in strikes in February. There were 330 strikes involving bout 100,000 workers and the loss f 808,000 man-days of labor, the epartment said Friday. Both fig- res were below the level of Febuary, 1961.

The supervisors are being well paid to do a job, and I think they should do it. If my memory icrvos me right, they are all veil qualified, or at least they were at the last election. However, if any of them have found out since they were elected that they cannot handle the job, in all fairness to the taxpayers I think they should resign. In regard to the manager, where are we going to get this superman with better judgment than the combined judgment of five men? We have managed to get along without a county manager for a long time, and I think we could continue to do so for longer. We surely don't need a manager and a board of supervisors, too. Think of the taxpayers once in a while, please.

The firm says it now appears that we are close to such a situation and it may not be too long before an important sold-out condition is upon us, setting the stage for a significant short term rally. According to Joseph E. Granville of E. F. Button Co., the days ahead might include a selling climax but this would, from a technical standpoint, be looked upon as a very healthy development. Dominant factors behind the present market weakness apparently are related to fears that near-term business prospects are not as bright as they might be, according to Jerome Peck Associates, Inc. "For our part we are convinced that business prospects are still quite bright, as is witnessed by the present encouraging trend of automobile sales."
