Pause and Ponder And we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way: and Ihe Lord liath laid on him Ihe iniquity oi us all. -Isa. 53:6 Shameful Waste of Tax Money One of the most shameful wastes of taxpayers' money has been the stockpiling of unneeded strategic materials, which bejran in the wake of World War II. Another reminder of this squandering of tax money was an article in the November Reader's Digest by Senator John J. Williams, Delaware Republican, entitled "The Scandal in the Stncknilp." The $8.8 billion mass of materials for national defense includes items far in excess of the goal, which was a three-year supply of goods, and costs the taxpayers ?75,000 a week for storage charges alone. How badly the program has gotten out of hand and has put a steadily mounting burden on the taxpayers was illustrated by Sen. Williams' statement that even after President Kennedy called attention to the problem and asked a Congressional investigation, $42,500,000 worth of surplus was added in the next four months. Development of a stockpile of strategic materials is an essential part of our national security. But as the senator said, the program was "a good idea that a careless Congress and greedy men turned into a nieht- mare." get but rarely do: Through a clerical error our billing department undercharged you $47.63 on your last month's credit card account. But since it was our fault, and in consideration of the fact Christmas is near, we'd just like you lo forget the whole mHttcr. "As your landlord v.e wish to express our appreciation of you as a tenant these last 15 years. So we are installing a new refrigerator and stove in your apartment immediately, and beginning next month your rent will be reduced S35.

"It is my pleasure to inform YOU that Premier Khrushchev was deeply impressed by llis letter you wrote lo your newspaper outlining .he 10 basic errors of the Kremlin.

It will not be necessary to bring skis or overshoes, as hey will be provided by Ihe Soviet government." "Our publishing firm was sent a copy of your last talk to your local notary Club. It is our wish lo in- spirational Messages of the 20th Century.' We are enclosing a check for $500 against advance royalties." "1 found the wallet you lost in a taxi.

It was a mean thing to do, and I want you to know it will never, never happen again." "My wife, Jacqueline, and I are both delighted with your patriotic gift to the government of the golden oak chiffonier, circa 1904, left lo you by your late Aunt Milly, and we will be glad to find a place for it in the White House. In going through one of the drawers. 1 stumbled across 37 old shares of ATT stock which your aunt apparently had hidden there. 1 return it to you herewith."

Senator Williams has proposed that those materials which are in short supply commercially be sold on the commercial market, that some of the excess be given to defense contractors as part payment for their work and that some of the materials be distributed under the foreign aid program in lieu of cash to those countries which would use the money given them to buy the same things. : · "For the rest," he said in his article, "we will have to proceed with caution, parceling out small lots slowlj on the commercial market. It may require 10 years or ijiore to liquidate our excess stockpile." : The senator's proposals seem to offer a way thai the surpluses can be disposed of in the interest of the taxpayers and without detriment to the economy. The next session of Congress should make certain that thi senseless stockpiling of unwanted materials is stoppei and that some sound plan, whether it be Williams' or another,is devised to take the surplus materials off the taxpayers' backs and put them to a useful purpose. th of them anti-Santa Claus.

He, more than man, frustrated Kennedy on thi ne. And Byrd, Virginia Democra md chairman of the Senate's F nance CommiUee, says he igatnst a tax cut so long as go- ernmeni spending exceeds its in come. A lax cut might make Ih deficit grealer, at least for while. Byrd, who didn't support Ken nedy in the 1960 presidential cam laign, has opposed many of h wograms. Because of his positio as chairman of the Finance Com mitlee he is a formidable oppi nent. Vet, Kennedy has treated bol Mills and Byrd very gently. H Businessmen May Get Appea For Help in Cutting Taxes .'residential Myths : Some people love to believe that important fact about our presidents have been suppressed, notably as to their health. When President Wilson was laid lo\ by a stroke, for example, the rumored ailment wa even worse. The secrecy with which his illness \va surrounded naturally encouraged extravagant notions : Everyone who was of age during the Frankli D. Roosevelt regime will remember the yarns peddle about him. Although FDR led an open life, not shut of from visitors, people who should have had more sens were convinced that he was really a maniac whose in sanity was kept a strict secret. (As if it could ha\ been!) Another often circulated tale was that he had had several little strokes before the cerebral hemorrhage which ended his days. This statement has now been pronounced a myth by a doctor in a position to know. This is Dr. James A. Halsted, husband of FDR's daughter Anna and a practicing physician in Detroit. Halsled has published an article on the subject in Today's Health, a publication of the American Medical Association. He points out that such strokes would have come to the attention of Roosevelt's wife, hisi Business and the I'rrsidonl have children, his physician or his secretary.
