The pundits see t h e decision based upon two things: (1) A good chance for success, and (2) enormous loujr-ransc political advantages which, as a minority President workinpr wth a Democratic Congress, he does not presently enjoy. Thrust of the Nixon decision seems evident from statements made by key members of his administration d u r i n g the last few weeks. The official position would seem to be that the critics have made THEIR .stand. and haven't shown anything too alarming in the way of firepower. Thus, the President is reported to be seriously considering a call for ijublic support, on the theory that the average citizen, who knows nothing of the specifics of so complex and sophisticated a proposal, will back the White House rather than the few dissidents in Congress. Most likely the President is rig_ht. He is first and foremost a splendid political strategist and tactician . . . and a cautious one. Tf he takes his stand, the chances arc awfully ?ood that he will win. But to do so, he will have resorted to a political decision, rather than a scientific and objective one. And on an issue so important and provocative to the nation's future, we question whether that's a proper course. Game's Nome Successful votes nn the mixed-drink proposition in Garland County, Pulaski County, Little; Rock and Eureka Springs supports Governor Rockefeller's contention at the outset of this year's legislative session that a good many of the state's citizens favor some sensible solution to the alcoholic beverage question. As things now stand, hotels, motels and larger restaurants in Little Rock, North T . i t tie Rock, Hot Springs and Eureka Springs will bp in a irosition to offer mixed drinks In their guests and patrons ere long. From the tourism and convention angle this brings these locales into favorable circumstance with regional and national competition. This will provide one.more important stimulus to the movement of travelers from the Midwest through Arkansas. Which, in turn, means lhat even more travelers, tourists and vistors will wind their way through Fayetteville and Northwest Arkansas, en route to convention, entertainment, or surcease from the routines of home. In that context, the question seems to us inescapable: Shouldn't Washington County, or at least its ma.jor population centers, sit in on the gatne? The name, of the game we have in mind being conventions and tourism. One Thing Sure The f i l y Hoard of Directors at a regular meeting earlier t h i s mouth adopted, with a m i n i m u m of discussion and f a n f a r e , ordinances tlpMgiu'd t o control access points along the Hwy. 71 liy-IVs; and further north, from Mud Creek to Clear Creek. Crux of the new ordinances is that most of the several do/en access points granted property owners d u r i n g the State Highway D e p a r t m e n l ' s recent riglil-nf-wiiy acquisition, must now undergo a m u n i c i p a l review w i t h the certain prospect t h a i most, if not a l l , will be confined to service road development. A question is raised by this procedure as to its legality.

Because of inevitable economic, considerations, the new regulations seem certain to have their unpopular moments in the nol- too-flistant future. Thus , in our view, them lire elements of fortitude as well as foresight in the city's decision. The Directors 'rate a vote of thanks on both counts. Hillside Adventures By FRED STARR If the world is too much with you. it might be a good idea for you to take a gander through the Ozarks along about now. Nature is bursting at the seams with as many types of beauty as Carter had oats. Yesttrday we remarked to a neighbor that if the streets of gold: the preacher tells about in the next world, is anymore brilliant ''than the forsythia this time, we can hardly wait to see it. Then he ups and asks, "Reckon we'll make it?" If not, may- he so, In the other place we can gather some consolation from having lived another s p r i n g here to witness the glamor of thi! spirea. the wild plum, the flowering peach, the jappnica, tulips, sarvis, dogtooth violets, creeping flox. and a batch of other glory Ma nature cooks up every-time she goes trailing her garlands so freely. The blossoming of the pear trees burn in the night, frail and fragrant in the starlight, making a t a n g l e d feeling of loveliness in the throat. And today, working in the garden with the fires of the forsythia burning on one side and the shower of pear blossom falling around us on the other, we seemed poised between two worlds: one of snowy winter, the other the passion of warm pring. Troddins this Hallelujah Trail mapped out (or all who would worship at the feet of nature, we can say with William Ellery Charming: "There are clouds not a few in our sky. But I have lived tnn long to be surprised, or so rep ine at this. It seems to me that existence continues to he an increasing good -- and that the longer I live, the more I enjoy: and I am inclined to believe that this is hotter than a life of unvaried gratification w o u 1 d have been.-The .spring is just opening upon us, and this season has long awakened in me must delightful sensations. I sometime look .arund. and feel viewing the heavens and the earth were enough to constitute existence a blessing." And I believe with Booker T. Washington t h a t we should make our little heavens right where we are. Seems sometimes all too many of us go about making a lot of little hells right w h e r e we arc. which doesn't quite make sense. We ought'er bo like the old quaker who was disturbed a b o u t his two modern boys. He said. "The world suits me to a T, Mattie. That's my troub le. Why sometimes I think the Lord made it especially for me. 1 like color. I don't see how the flavor of spring water could be improved on. I'd hate to have to invent a better fruit t h a n Grimes Golden -- yellow like lamplight on snow. Thee ever ·teen anything prettier? Out here alone this quirk of mine seems a blessing. I feel downright joy ful. Inside with the boys I feel sooner say the words. 'Hell and Damnation' than 'Joy.' Is that something they don't know about. Mattie? To hear them talk thec'd think they have some special little bird whispering nothing but bad news in their cars. It grabs me in the throat to hear those two boys--ignorant young farmer and ingnorant young student--so quick to put the worst meaning on any hap pening. Generosity of soul! Looks like they were boths landing behind the door when t h a t commodity was passed out.' Evidently t h i s old man's boys were the kind that would bring him trouble, a bucketful in each h a n d . And this pa is not having to stand alone. We have heard and known of two fathers who were put in the hospital recently by sons who were against the establishment, and seemins ly. couldn't find an answer to the problem. Instead of saying 'lie must have been standing behind the door when a thing i \ a s passed out.' we used to say of a girl who was not overly proiiy. "She must have been gone' to mill when they were nobody goes to mill any more. Once in a great while we run us ag'in a problem where some help is needed. Maybe you'd like to-tnckle this one. "Suppose a man is 30 years of age and he has a child one year old. He is thirty times older than the child. When the child is 30. the father will he sixty, or twice as old as the child. When the child 1s sixty, the father is 0(1 and therefore only one fourth older t h a n the child. Thus you sec the child is gradually hut surely gaining on the parent, and ,ns he must certainly continue to come nearer and nearer, in time he must overtake him. The quest i o n , therefore, is. suppose \\.-is possible for them to Ync lone enough, how old would the father be when the child overtakes him and they hcunne the same age?

"Ican't understand why the fish aren't biting today." Tula said. "Maybe the TV cameras are scaring them away." "Hey, Tula, why don't we hold a press conference and say Sen.

Neo- Nazi movement that seeks to overthrow the U. S. government. Already it directs an S850.000-A-Year Lobbying campaign on Capitol Hill, publishes one of America's famous dozen front organizations and last year handed out $90,000 to candidates for Congress. Members of this organization are not goose-stepping storm troopers like the late George Lincoln Rockwell's motley misfits, but doctors, lawyers, writers and businessmen f r o m America's upper middle class. They belong to secret colls were they are known only by code names. They call their subterranean society t h e Francis P a r k e r Yockey Movement, named for a neo-Nazi philosopher w h o committed suicide in a San Francisco jail cell in 1960. But they take tiieir credo, as Yockey did. from Adolf Hitler whose birthday they plan to celebrate with secret rites on Sunday. They sing the old Nazi songs, hoard Nazi war relics and display the swastika at their meet- ins" Their sologan: "Was Mich Micht Umbringt, Macht Mich Destroy Me Makes Me Stronger." They seek the overthrow o[ democracy in the United States. t h e inii'rication of Keflorn F.urope under a neo-Nazi dictatorship and an armageddon with Russia. Just as Hitler boldly set forth his aims in "Mein Kampf, Yockey outlined his strategy for resurrecting Naziism in a psoudo · philosophical b o o k called "Imperiiim." This h a s become the Mcin Kampf of the ne\v movement. Yockey declared in his book that a massive attack upon Rusrja across the plains of Europe was the "only solution." "There is no other," he stressed. This must be preceded, however, by "the complete cleansing of the Western soul from every form of materialism, f r o m rationalism, equality, social c h a o s , communism, liberalism, leftism, of e v e r y variety of money worship, the domination of trade. Na- ism. feminism, race-sterility, weak ideals of 'happiness' and the like." CARTO TAKES OVER Yockey concluded: "The soil of Europe, rendered sacred by the steams of blood which have made it spiritually fertile for a millennium, will once a g a i n stream with blood until t h e barbarians (Russians) and distorters (Jews) have been driven out." The Francis Parker Yockey Movement w a s formed a f t e r his suicide by the last man to see him alive. Willis A. Carto. founder of the Liberty Lobby, who has written that the United States made a mistake in going to war against Hitler. Carto published Imperium and. in a forward, he proclaimed his own strategy with startling candor. "Those who are to save the West." he wrote, "must realize at the outset that only part of it can be saved: that much must he sacrificed and that the resulting structure will be dif ferrnt from the past . . . "And although our job is to REBUILD, we must not lose sisht of the reality, for we cannot rebuild until we have captured. Political power is the essential criterion, not wishes or windbags, and to the gonl of political power all else must he temporarily sacrificed." Carlo's secret quest for political power has had astonishing success. While he recruited true believers into the Francis Park er Yockev Movement, he ever cised political power through n network of front organizations. He tonk pains always to keep behind the scenes. A darkly handsome man in his early 40s, he has never allowed himself to be photographed. He manipulates his front groups with a hidden but iron hand by controlling the purse strings. POWERFUL LOBBY The most powerful front is the Liberty Lobby which, say insiders, raised $850,000 l a s t year. T h r o u g h the Liberty Lobby, Carto furnished research and wrote speeches for a dozen members of Congress. He had almost the entire South Carolina delegation eating out of his hand, including Sen. Strom Thurmond, Rep. Mendel Rivers. Rep. Albert Watson and Rep. W. J. Bryan Dorn. Several Louisiana congressmen were also patsies for the neo-Nazis, including Rep. Otto Passman, who signed a letter soliciting subscriptions to t h e L i b e r t y Lobby's newsletter; Rep. Joe Waggonner. Jr.. who accepted a "Statesman of the Republic" award from Liberty Lobby; and Rep. John Rarick. who spoke at several Liberty Lobby rallies. Others who accepted awards and gave speeches for Liberty Lobby were Reps. E. Y. Berry of South Dakota. John Dowdy of Texas, James Utt of California and John Bell Williams, who quit Congress to become governor of Mississippi last year. There is no evidence that any of thes.c congressmen knew of Carlo's neo-Nazi background, although we reported as early as Oct. 26. 1966. that Carto was an admirer of Adolf Hitler. Our charge was based upon h i s p r i v a t e correspondence, in which he called Hitler's defeat a tragedy for Western civilization. Carto also set up the United Congressional Appeal, which raised $90.000 for congressional candidates during the 1968 campaign. As treasurer, he personally signed the checks. He has also purchased control of the American Mercury, a magazine whose name was once a household word in America. His Noontide Press in Sausalito, Calif., publishes pseudo-intellectual, neo-Nazi books. T h e latest. "The Myth of the S i x Million," seeks to prove that Hitler's massacre of six million Jews was all a Jewish myth. True t o h i s word, W i l l i s Carto has captured enormous political power.

Tula (aid, "and maybe someday I could become Secretary of the Interior." "Hey, look. Isn't that Ami presenting Sen. Kennedy with a teal tusk paperweight?" "The fool. He's just destroyed his political career," Tula said. 'Leave it to Ami to be in the wrong place at the wrong time." "We'd better go over there and hold our press conference before the TV and newspaper people take off." "Wait a minute. I think I've got a bite. Yes, I do have » bite. Look, Nikko, it's a big one." "Throw it back," Nikko shouted. "You'll ruin the press conference." "Are you crazy? This is my dinner." "But what about your political career?" "I'd rather have something to eat tonight, if it's all th* same to you." "Tula, as your campaign manager. I beg you to throw back that fish." "Not me, Nikko. I'd rather eat than be President." Nikko shook his head "No wonder we Eskimos can't g e t out of our rut." (c) 1M», The Washington Post Co. Nixon Administration Builds Its Own 'Gap' By CLAYTON FKITCHEY WASHINGTON--The byproduct of the mounting struggle over the Nixon Administration's effort to put over its "Safeguard" missile defense system may be more politically damaging thtn the ABM itself, for the byproduct is the credibility of the new Government. During the months leading up to Lyndon Johnson's withdraw, al from the Presidential race last year, it was clear that his prestige had been hurt more by the credibility gap growing out of the Vietnam war than by the actual hostilities. Thus, it is puzzling to see the successor administration falling into the same trap. Just as the Johnson team used every argu ment it could lay its hands on to justify the war, so the Nixon 'men have been reaching for any prop to save their "Safeguard." And the props are as frail, contradictory, and disingenuous as Johnson's Vietnam arguments. Sen. George McGovern (D., S. D.) says t h e r e have been "four different rationalizations for the ABM system and this is one of the reasons why there is a real credibility problem on the part of those who have been pressing for the anti-ballistic system." The fact is that so many "rationalizations" h a v e been advanced that not even the well-informed McGovern can keep track of all of them. The number far exceeds four. The Administration, of course, deines this, but here is the record: THE CLAIM--"The Soviets." says Secretary of Defense Melvin Larid. "are going for a first- strike capability (against the U.S.) and there is no doubt about it. THE GAP-- Secretary of State William P. Rogers "cmphaticallv rejected the notion that the Soviet Union is preparing a first-strike nuclear capability." (News dispatches). THE CLAIM (by L a i r d ) -The Russians "are the only country in the world that has actually fired an ABM at a missile and has conducted tests in the atmosphere with missiles." The gap "as long as seven years apo we demonstrated we could with confidence destroy single incoming missiles." (Former Secretary of Defense Clark- Clifford). THE CLAIM--President Nix- on and Secretary Laird say tht Safeguard system is purely defensive, hence the Russians will not be disturbed, and disarmament talks will not be affected. THE GAP -- Th* Soviet government newspaper Izvestii says that "deployment of an American anti-miilU* system might set back th* chances for successful U.S. -Soviet talks on arms control." (Tht New York Times). THE CLAIM (by Laird) American missiles can b* disarmed or destroyed by ground control even after they are launched. THE GAP -- In an about - face. L a i r d later in formed the Senate that "offensive weapons cannot b* a t l f destructed." THE CLAIM -- In making its ABM decision, the Defense Department says it consulted Dr. Wolfgang Panofsky. Stanford University physicist. THE GAP --Dr. Panofsky says h* was not consulted and that he opposes the missile program. THE CLAIM (by L a i r d ) -The Russian SS9 missile can destroy the U.S. Minuteman because it has a warhead of 25 megatons, or 25 million tons of TNT. THE GAP -- In answer to a question by Sen. Symington. Deputy Secretary of Defense P a c k a r d "seemed unsure whether its warhead is a smaller S megaton size." (Washington Star). THE CLAIM (by Laird) -Without Safeguard, the SS9 mil- siles might knock out all. or nearly all, of the 1.000 U.S. Minutemen missiles. The gap -Dr. Raiph Lapp advises the Senate that, at the maximum, only 240 Minutemen could t h u s be knocked out. "Clearly." he said, "no military planner would eon- template a first strike which left 760 Minutemen available for retaliation." THE CLAIM (by Laird)-The U.S. must build Safeguard because "we do not want to become hostage of the Chines*." THE GAP "The Chinese are not completely crazy: they are not going to attack us with 4 or X missiles when they k n o w we have the capability of virtually destroying their e n t i r e country." (Sen. Richard Russell, chairman of the Appropriation* Committee). -(C) W9, N«w*«iy, IM. Billy Graham This Is My Answer Why don't many Christi«ns behave like Christian* should in their day to day contacts with people? P.M. There is not a perfect person in all the world and the best Christian is hut a sinner saved hy (jrnce. At the same time, Christians often fail In rise to the priviledes and ways of conduct which should he theirs. There are many explanations: failure to completely surrender every aren of life to Christ: failure In fully appropriate the help and blessinx God wants to sive 11* daily: selfishness which lead to a lack of appreciation of others and their viewpoints and problems; «nd, proh- ahly most common of all--a failure to begin and livt through thedayaskinn for Christ'* pr*«- ence in our hearts and mindt in everything we do. A Christian's life and outlook jjiould bs dominated by lov» for other people, especially fellow Christians. An examination of our hearts will ihow how miserably we fail in exhibiting Christian love in our daily contacts. The one way to overcome this is a renewed dedication nf our liven to Christ, asking Him to completely take over in our' lives, »nd then to go out. and put into practice that, which H* would have us to do. W* cannot do this by our own effort*, but Christ wants to Irfve 111 t h e strength necessary for « u e n living. He will da it If w« will but Itt Him.
