Idaho Free Press it Caldwell News-Tribune, Monday, June 26,1967 - 4 PAGE OF OPINION HENRY TAYLOR COMMENTS Copyiighl 1967 loi Angetes Timai S TODAY'S EDITORIAL A Temporary Move? When Gov. Don Samuelson authorized use of unmtrked state police cars last week, if evoked a controversy that has not yet simmered down. It is the contention of the Idaho State Police and of Samuelson that unmarked cars ire needed in order to rid the highways of reckless drivers. Others say, however, that it Is unwise to allow this practice. Among the critics has been the IdahoSfate · Automobile. Association. It contends that a motorist would have no visible way of 'determining if he was being stopped by a police car or by an Imposter. A »oman driving late at night certainly would be reluctant to stop for such a car. H using unmarked cars will work, as the FOREIGH COMMENTARY state police seem to feel, we believe it should be done -- but only as a temporary measure. Permanent use of unmarked cars could brand the state police as "sneaks" in the eyes of a portion of the public, thus lowering the high respect it has earned throughout the years. We believe the plainly marked state police car serves a more important purpose than would an unmarked car. It serves as a safe driving reminder to the majority of those who see them on the road. .And don't forget that drivers who might be trying to summon help would pass by these unmarked vehicles. At the end of a three-month trial period, we would urge the governor to re-evaluate his decision and consider marking all state police cars once again. Saigon Believes Cong To Use Murder Teams ByPHILNEWSOM t'PI Foreign News Analyst The foreign news outlook: SAIGON TERRORISM: Terrorism Is on the increase in Saigon and through much of the rest of South Vietnam. In the capital, police fear that the Viet Cong is infiltrating men and women murder teams, aimed both at the Americans and government officials and workers. With the presidential election campaign just around the corner, a dramatic increase in Communist terrorism maybe expected. CHECK AND CHECKMATE: The continued blocking of the Suez Canal is costing Egypt an estimated $5 million a week In sorely needed revenues. Israel, banned up to 'now by Egypt from use of the canal, is reported considering a pipeline from {he Gulf of Aqaba to the Mediterranean. This could cut down on Egyptian revenues since big supertankers iiu longer would have to pay enormous fees for transiting the canal, and Israel would be the gainer. EMPTY HOUSE: United Nations speakers are droning on and on to practically an empty house. Everybody Is busy In the wings trying to come up with a compromise solution to the Mideast crisis.

We do OUR READERS SAY Recall Try Accelerates To The Editor: When I heard, five weeks ago, that an effort was being made to recall me from the United States Senate on what amounted to charges of treason, my first comment was that, like Patrick Henry, I would let my friends speak for me. You have certainly been one of those friends! I cannot tell you how deeply moved I have been by the fine editorial comments suchasthose that have appeared in your columns. From news reports of recent days, it would appear that the campaign against me is to be accelerated. Regardless of the pressures, I assure you that I will continue to serve our state and our nation to the very best of my ability and judgment and that I will always continue to follow the dictates of my considered convictions. I will not violate the faith you have evidenced in my position through your editorial comments. Best personal regards, Frank Church U. S. Senate Washington, D.

It is the only tool that can reproduce itself, The Russians are specialists in low-cost lathes and a surprising number of Canadian factories are now entirely equipped with them. Hungary's precision instruments are good. Hungary supplied most of the difficult in. strumentation for Russia's uranium development in Czechoslovakia. Hungarian optical and glass products are also well entrenched throughout Europe, NIKEX,; the Hungarian Foreign Trade Enterprise Bureau, is pushing all of these here. The Czechs are busy. The immense Skoda complex I visited not too long ago at Pilsen, and the Bata shoe works, Europe's largest, are pressing their products at low prices. The work week in Red Czechoslovakia is 51 hours -- six on Saturday -- and the workers gut next to nothing for it. Tiny Monaco's short border next to France sprouts only flowers. Our 4,000-mile border with Canada has been unfortified for more than 100 years. Nothing comparable exists anywhere in the entire world. MAKE A CLEAN BREAK WITH THE PAST!
