By TOM TIEDE NBA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NBA) Theoretically, there is a way for Americans to finance the awesome costs of the war in Vietnam and not spend a cent doing it. How? Buy more Savings Bonds. Although reluctant to indulge in such speculation, the U. S. Treasury Department readily verifies the validity of the proposition. A spokesman there, Edward Snyder, says Ihe plan is "improbable, but possible." Here's how it would work. Since all money spent on Sav- Therefore, If $25 billion worth of bonds were sold this year, the revenue could conceivably be used to defray the estimated immediate costs of the war. The happiness of such a thought is obvious. Unlike a surtax increase, Savings Bond money would be refundable ... with interest of 4.15 per cent at maturity. But nice as the whole thing sounds, the American public isn't about to rush out and save $25 billion for Vietnam. In fact, the American public isn't rushing to buy Savings Bonds at all for this war, at least not on a large scale. In the holidays with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Goodson. Week-end guests of Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Cullom Jr. was Miss Terry Mitchell of Memphis.

Beall. ngs Bonds goes into the general federal spending fund, any increase in bond sales would result in an increased general fund. And the larger the fund, the more money to pay bills.

"I can remember bond drives m every neighborhood in the early MOs," says bond public affairs director Robert Harper. They were sold on every street corner and in every schoolhouse. And people bought a lot of them." Indeed, people did. In 1944, over $12 billion worth were purchased by a population far less sizable than today's, by people far less affluent. Authorities believe, however, that those days are gone for- ver. "Can you imagine," sighs one Treasury employe, "millions of leople saving tinfoil and ration, ing gasoline just for the sake of victory in Vietnam?" The Savings Bond people agree they can't imagine it. Thus their bond campaign next year will be the same as it was this year in the past — with emphasis on savings benefits rather than patriotic duty.

Be clev- connections. , I er. 'war," for exam- appears on bond The word pie, seldom propaganda. Fighting machines seldon appear on posters. Anything combative is virtually ta boo. Bluntly put, the bond campaign is an appeal to the material instincts of the buyer. Officials admit that selling techniques are not along the lines of what the buyer can do for the government but what the government can do for the buyer. Naturally, Treasury planners sales pitch to the sound of waving flags. But they frankly admit fear of a negative reaction. Their conclusion is that the mood of the nation is such that a war drive would be disastrous. They fear critical demonstrations, mass rejection and, aS one fellow puts it, "probably even some Savings Bond burnings." As it is already, some people are objecting. The Treasury gets weekly letters from people protesting the fact that their bond money goes, in part, to finance war. And at least a few citizens have tried lo begin national antibond campaigns. One objector, Dr. Martin Shepard, a New York psychiatrist, initiated a bond cancela- lion drive two years ago. It was not widely successful but at one time he turned in over $50,000 worth of cancellation pledges. "We get a .fair amount of Ihis kind of thing," Harper admits. "The most common is from people who say they will continue buying bonds only if they will be spent on peaceful projects. "Naturally, we can't give that assurance." * * * But for all of the delicacy of the situation, many Treasury people still feel that bond sales, and thereby revenue, would increase with a patriotic appeal. One theory is that some kind of request be made to buy bonds as a means of supporting American fighting men. The thinking is that even though war itself, virtually no one to against helping GIs. Yet even this seemingly harmless idea has little chance of becoming poSicy. Treasury people are just too gun-shy of the Viet controversy. And they don't want to tamper with what money they do have coming in from bonds. "Actually," one economist asserts, "we couldn't have a war bond drive even if we wanted it. .The government would first have to admit that we're in a many people are against thelwar."

My husband and I have been married for Iwo years, and I jusl found out for sure thai I am pregnant with our first child. When I told my husband, I thought he would explode. I have never seen him so angry. He has restricted me to the house. I can leave only to go to work, and then I have to come straight home. I can't visil my friends or relatives. I can't go downtown to do any Ihing. Nol even grocery shopping in Ihe neighborhood. He doesn'l want me any place where any of his friends can see me anil know that I'm pregnant. He keeps Ihreal- ening to get out legally, or illegally, as he wanls no part of being tied down at 21. I love him and don't want to lose him. How can I get him to change his attitude? I am also 21. , NEEDING HELP DEAR NEEDING: Something is fishy here. Why is your husband so violently opposed to letting his friends know that you are pregnant You are married, and there is nothing to he ashamed of. He "tied himself down" at 19 when he married, so his "reason" for exploding doesn't make much sense. And what's this "restricting business!" If you submit to his unreasonable demands in order to "hold" a husband who has threatened to "get out legally or illegally" you are asking for the abusive treatment your poor- exeuse-for-a-husband is dishing out. DEAR ABBY: I am 15 and I babysit for a few people in the neighborhood and I really love it. Tonight, one of the neighbors telephoned me and asked if I was available to sit for her on New Year's Eve. I was, so I told her yes. Right after I hung up the telephone, my mother asked me who called and what for, so I told her. Then my mother said, "I might need you to sit for ME on New Year's Eve." I fold my molher lhat I had already promised this other lady and I couldn't break my promise. My father, who is very quick tempered yelled, "You'll sit for your mother if she needs you!" Abby, you always tell us kids to do what our parents say, but Ihis tune I think I am right and they are wrong. What do you think? SITTER DEAR SITTER: The best of parents can be wrong now and then, and unless you agreed to check with your mother before accepting other sitting dates, they were wrong this time. DEAR ABBY: We have two very small boys. One is five and the other is Iwo and a half. My problem is, I feel thai my husband expects loo much too soon. These little tykes come to the table happy and hungry, but by the time my husband gels thru correcting their every move, "(Sit up straight, take your elbows off the table, stop talking with your mouth full, you're eating too fast, you're eating too slow... etc.") these poor kids leave the table in tears with their plates practically untouched. How can I make my husband understand that besides making the boys dread mealtime, it could be bad for their health? OHIO DEAR OHIO: You have DEAR OHIO: You have THREE "Little boys." Tell the one you're married to that altho his criticisms may be justified, there is a more effective way to teach children. It's true serious digestive problems often develop when children (and adults, as well) attempt to eat while they are upset. Implore your husband to pause, control himself and resist the urge to shout criticisms and orders at the table. "Gentleness" is the key word here. And should he forget, a "gentle" kick in the ankle from you may remind him.
