I POUR IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN FRIDAY, MAY 7, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "The Daily Glob* it an independent newspaper, supporting what it believes to be right and opposing what it believes to be wrong, regardless of party politics, and publishing the news fairly and impartially." —tinwood I. Moves, Editor and Publisher 1927-1964. Mrs. Linwood I. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher An Important Election One of the most important elections ever held in Gogebic Count}' will take place Monday, May 10. The results of this election will determine llie future of Gogebic Community College. There are three questions which will be submitted to the electors: "1. Do you favor the establishment of a community college count)' district authorized to provide, collegiate and non-collegiate-level education including area vocational technical education programs? "2. Shall the Board of Trustees be authorized to levy a tax up to one and one-half mills on each dollar on assessed valuation as equal- ised?" The proposed levy will amount to 81.50 on each $1,000 of valuation, a very nominal tax. The third proposition calls for the election of six members of the Board of Trustees. There are 18 candidates in the running. In order that the county college plan may be placed in effect, the first two propositions must be approved by majority votes. The Daily Globe endorses the proposal for a county community college and urges a "yes" vote on each of the first two propositions. We have given our full co-operation to the educational campaign conducted by the Action- Information Committee and have published many columns of information prepared by the committee explaining various aspects of .the question. The Ironwood school distinct established the present college more than 30 years ago as the Ironwood Junior College. Later, the name was changed to Gogebic Community College. Through the years the college has been of inestimable value to the community, not only to Ironwood, but to the entire area. The need for the college to have its own quarters, out of the high school building where it has been operated since the beginning, has long been recognized. As the Action-Information Committee points out, the trend among Michigan community colleges is toward county, multi-county, or area colleges. Under a separate community college district, the college can be of even greater service to the people of the area than in the past, good as its past record is. As a separate institution, the community college will be even more attractive to a larger number of students. There are many other benefits which it is not necessary to review here. The educational publicity prepared by the Action Committee has been thorough and adequate. •a»^ We repeat: In the best interests of the entire range community, The Daily Globe urges "yes" votes on the establishment of a community college county district and on the millage pro- prosal. The 18 candidates for the six board of trustees positions are well known to the public. It will be the responsibility of the six who are elected to carry out their assigned duties in the interests of the greatest good for the people. At a meeting the other night one of Hurley's leading citizens declared that if Iron county residents could vote in next Mondays election, they would, vote 100 per cent for the proposals. Surely the people of Gogebic county are no less interested in providing educational opportunities for the youth of the area and in helping to build an economic asset. The Feast of Mom "God could not be everywhere and therefore he nwdc mothers."—Jewish proverb. Formal mother-worship ceremonies to Cybele, or Rhea, "the Great Mother of the Gods," were performed on the Ides of March throughout Asia Minor in the days of Ancient Greece. With the coming of Christianity these developed into worship of "Mother Church." Celebration occurred on mid-Lent Sunday when children returned home with flowers and cakes for parents, especially the mother. Mothering Sunday, as the medieval feast was known, still is celebrated in Great Britain on the fourth Sunday of Lent. In the United States, Mother's Day is observed on the second Sunday in May—which falls this vear on May 9. It was officially established in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson signed a joint congressional resolution setting the time as a memorial to mothers everywhere. According to one account, the force behind the U.S. observance was a Miss Anna M Jarvis. When her mother died in 1905 at Grafton, W. Va., Miss Jarvis had a minister devote a sermon to motherhood. She distributed carnations, her mothers favorite flower, to those in attendance. Soon the movement spread, and it still is gaining popularity—especially with merchants. Pope Paul VI took special note of Mother's Day last year in his noonday blessing to crowds in St. Peter's Square. "I dedicate my prayers today," the Pope said, "for all mothers, especially those who suffer, and for all children, especially those who are unhappy." This sentiment was a timely and welcome counterbalance to the over-commercialization of Mother's Dav. The Post Office Department plans to deliver 95 per cent of all domestic mail overnight. Don't those bills get to us soon enough now? Mom knows exactly what the kids are doing outdoors these nice days. They're playing "Ring Around the Bathtub." A Slorrs, Conn., high school student was dismissed for wearing a beard. That's losing out bv a whisker. A child care expert says girls can whine longer than boys. That's news to husbands? The only sure thing about horse racing is that there is no such thing as a sure thing. The Trouble We're Seeing (Copyright 1969, King Features Syndicate. Inc.) By John Cliamberlain "You Americans," said the foreign minister of Ruritania, "are bound to lose out in this utruggle for the world for one simple reason: You don't want to make trouble. This puts you •t an intolerable disadvantage in dealing with revolutionary foreign powers whose one overriding aim in life is to make trouble for you. "Oh, boy, how they've got you on the hip! You have only ten fingers, but they've got the dikes leaking in at least thirty places and when you've used up all ten fingers the water's still flowing. "You didn't want trouble in South Viet Nam. You just wanted to train the South \ 7 ietnamese to help themselves. A nice idea, and you are nice people. But the other side, specifically the not-so-nice Ho Chi Minh, very definitely wanted trouble. He even made use of a trail In Laos, which is outside his own country, to send the tools and the personnel for trouble- making into South Viet Nam. I never hear you remark of die iron that the trail in Laos is called the Ho Chi Minh trail. Something the teach-ins might discuss. "To deal with the Ho Chi Minh trouble you develop an ad hoc strategy. First it's helicopters to shift troops. Then it's Marines. Then it's bombing bridges. But you still don't want any more trouble than is necessary to stop the other fellow from causing trouble. He knows it, which gives him quite an advantage. He can shift the trouble elsewhere, and you, as an ad hoc power, must start all over again. ""Look at what the trouble-makers have been doing to you since you first decided to put that finger in the dike in South Viet Nam. They've started to invade your college campuses at home. You don't need many conspirators around to get a full-fledged, peace- at-any-price contagion going, especially when you have a nation whose historians always seem to overlook the pertinent facts of recent history. The president of Howard University, Dr. James M> Nabrit Jr., is out looking at the trouble-makers' picket lines on his campus one day, and Whom does he see in the lines but a Communist he once defended. Dr. Harry Gid- fojgjptf at Brooklyn College had a somewhat dMlftf experience. No, you can't prove it in court that Moscow and Peking are behind this new and explosive rebirth of the campus left, and it would be 'McCarthyism' if you were to make allegations. But it's' sure strange how all the dikes start leaking at once. "You send Marines to Viet Nam, and the trouble-makers immediately find a way to divert some Marines to the Caribbean. This outburst in the Dominican Republic is a nice illustration of camouflaged trouble-making. Cuba's Fidel Castro makes a speech that blandly predicts guerilla trouble in Guatemala, Colombia, Venezuela. And, to make his point clear, he sends several hundred new Havana-trained recruits into Venezuelan and Colombian jungles. And then, while everybody is looking at South America, the trouble comes in an island that is right next door to Castro's own Cuba. "While all this is going on. Miami's channel two of the National Educational Television Network is sponsoring a one-hour report, Three Faces of Cuba,* which happens to have been produced by a man whose film lectures on Red China and East Germany have been extravagantly praised by leftist publications. The Cuban exiles in Miami were outraged by the claims that Three Faces of Cuba' is 'objective,' but this doesn't keep it from going to millions of American school kids as something 'educational,' "Then, of course, there's an outbreak of 'banditry' in Thailand. A Canadian is killed on a bus at one of the 'bandit' roadblocks. Twenty-five trucks and cars are held up and robbed without a policeman showing up to stop it. Well, Stalin once held up banks, and maybe those in charge of Mao Tse-Tung's promised Thailand subversion need cash. "What am I leading up to?"'asked the foreign minister of Ruritania. "I'd just like to know why your country never has any truck with trouble-making on its own. Why don't you wink at the creation of a liberation committee for North Viet Nam and a govemment- in -exile for Cuba? Why don't you let Formosa buy landing craft? If you don't get the current flowing the other way through the other flowing the other way through the other fel- fellows' dikes, you're going to be in water up to your necks." The National Whirligig tw UeCMN NMnpaper The Washington Scene By RAT CROMLEY WASHINGTON — (NEA) —In evaluating what's going on in South Viet Nam, keep in mind that Hanoi's timetable calls for winning the war in 1965. Viet Cong agents captured over the past 12 months have been consistent in their reports on Ho Chi Minn's timing. Their tax, military build-up and political organization programs all fit this 1965 schedule. T7T"* 1n/i a 1 a/ftvi1rtief rofnrc VIQVO big thrust Into operation and be stopped. In the event of any of these fl u b s, Ho's men would retench and continue their slow infiltration of South Viet Nam's 16,000 hamlets and district, provincial and national government offices. The war would merely shift gears. There will be a psychological climax if a major Ho push bogs down or if Ho postpones, because of internal difficulties, his big drive to end the war quickly. There will be the time for a dramatic U.S. Saigon political- economic-psychological push into the hamlets, including: A drive offering amnesty and a new chance to non-Communist underground men who wanted to switch to our side.

The Communist upper-echelon provincial political-economic-mil- i t a r y administrative organization is nearing completion in most of the south, though there are some major loopholes which need to be filled. The VC first-line military establishment in South Viet Nam has been built up with North Vietnamese units for more than a year. In fact, North Vietnamese companies and battalions, fleshed out with South' Vietnamese fillers, have been operating in South Viet Nam for many months, some with Chinese advisers. Don't believe stories that North Viet Nam battalions are just now beginning to appear. •6 -ft * Ho's plans apparently allow for two options: A Communist military take-over, or vie t o r y through U. S.-Saigon concessions at the conference table. Captured Viet Cong politic a 1 agents, whose instructions have come direct from Hanoi, are confident their victory will be via the conference table. Ho's plan would require that he unleash some sensational operation before the year ends to convince Saigon, Washington and the West generally that our situation is hopeless. Ho's sensat i o n a 1 operat i on need not be a Dien Bien Phu. It could be a series of campaigns to chew up selected South Vietnamese armies or a bottling of Saigon's troops in the cities, combined with an open take-over of the countryside. Ho might try the formal establishment of a liberation government openly in South Viet Nam soil, with recognition by a string of countries. He could attempt an economic strangulation of Saigon and other major cities by blockade. He might Include a sharp step-up in terrorism. Ho's schedule can be thwarted. Weaknesses are developing in the VC structure. These food- morale-sickness odds might pile up and force Ho to abandon a big push. In fact, Ho must act before these internal weaknesses take away his chance to try for a quick victory. Then, too, Ho could put his Business Mirror By JOHN T. CUNNIFF AP Business News Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Gone are the days when a corporation president was judged solely on the amount and effectiveness of the, hours he devoted to the company's financial statement. Now he's being told to get out of the office and attend to other affairs: politics, education, civil rights, urban renewal, conservation. "Get involved," he's told, "and get the company involved too." Said H. Bruce Palmer, president of the National Industrial Conference Board: "There is a new awareness throughout the business community that pressing public problems make it essential that business come outside the store.'-' The advice is coming from every quarter — from civil Ironwood Daily Globe Published evenings, except Sunday* by Glob* Publishing Company, 118 E.

With the development of the By ANDREW TULLY WASHINGTON — Lobbyists for the expensive Central Intelligence Agency, Including a clutch of journalists purportedly reporting from the "inside, are noting with pride CIAs "success" in predicting the revolt in the Dominican Republic and in pinpointing its comm u n i s t overtones. CIA, the citizen is told, knew all along there would be a revolution and so reported to the White House, along with a dossier on the principal Red leaders. Unfortunately, this does not constitute success in the field of espionage. Our spy shop is supposed to know what is going on. It is supposed to prepare a scorecard with the names and numbers of all the players. But its prime function is to see that nothing happens that is not master-minded behind the scenes by Washington. » « * PROOF OF FAILURE — The fact President Johnson was forced to send troops to Santo Domingo 'is conclusive evidence that CIA failed in this prime function. There was a revolution, just as CIA had predicted, but it was a revolution that was hot controlled — or even influenced—by the United States. CIA spends upwards of a tail- lion dollars a year on its more- or-less secret operations. Thi money is not appropriated foi the agencys furtive, trench-coat shenanigans in midnight alleys around the world. It is a war chest to finance the agency' presumably benevolent interference in the internal affairs 01 foreign countries. <r it it NO LEADERS READY — In Santo Domingo, as elsewhere it was not enough for the CIA merely to know the sc o r e With the country in foment, i was CIA's job to organize and control a political faction friend ly to the United States and cap able of taking over the Domini can government. Instead, as President Johnson has acknowledged, there was power vacuum. There were no potential leaders in sight save for a passel of Reds owned and operated by Fidel Castro. Juan Bosch, the ultra liberal who was the nations last freely elected president, lingered in P u e r t o Rico. Other men, perhaps bet ter suited politically to assum leadership, also remained in the woodwork because it wasn' safe to emerge. Part of CIA's job, of course, was to make the country safe for leaders witt Washington's blessing. a ft a HOW IT WAS DONE — Giver competent espionage opera- ion, Santo Domingo could have been another Iran, or anot her Guatemala. In Iran In 1953, the JIA directed the overthrow of he government of Mohammed Mossadegh, who had been flirt- ng shamelessly with Moscow, and Installed its own regime headed by the young Shah, Pah- evi. It did this job by spending $100 million In bribes. Guatemala in 1954 showed CIA at Its best—in the gather- ng of information world-wide, In the communication of that information to headquarters, and in ts speedy evaluation for the guidance of policy makers. From Stettin, in communist Poland, a CIA agent learned the Reds were shipping arms to Jacobo Arbenz Gusmans commu n i s t regime in Guatemala. Within a month, using U. S. planes and 25 tons of American armament, an anti-communist junta deposed Arbenz.

Aware of the need for good community relations, executives were told to join in local activities, but this frequently meant the country club rather than a popular civic movement. Community relations are still a problem to many companies. Education long has been an "involvement" of business, but as the president of the New York Stock Exchange, Keith Funston, observed, one-fourth of this support — $250 million annually to schools and colleges — is coming from about 80 companies out of the thousands in our nation. For years the political arena was considered out of bounds by some corporations, but the Du Pont company found in a study recently that 930 of its employes now hold elective or appointive government offices. More recently, corporations and their executives have been urged by civil rights leaders, other businessmen — and by governmental action — to enlist in civil rights programs. Charles G. Mortimer, former chairman of General Foods Corp., said recently at a meeting of the Industrial Conference Board in Los Angeles, studies show chief executives of larger corporations now give 40 to 60 per cent of their time to public affairs. As recently as eight years ago, he said, only a handful of companies were involved in any way in public affairs. Today, more than 500 corporations have formal units to deal with such problems.
