[ SATURDAY, MAY 8,1965. ItONWOODOAIlY GLOBE, ItONWOOD, MICHIGAN ;1 The International Whirligig By ANDREW TULLY WASHINGTON—There is considerable comfort for the faceless taxpayer in the action of the Senate Foreign Relat ions Committee emphasizing broad public dissatisfaction with Uncle Sam's foreign aid program. The committee not only singled out Indonesia and the United Arab Republic as countries from which further aid should be cut off, but demanded a complete overhaul of the program under which the U. S. has doled out more than $100 billion since World War H—Capitol Hill, apparently, has heard from Main Street, which is not enthralled with do-goodism for its own sake. Reform will take time, because Washington is like that. The committee has asked President Johnson to submit a wholly new approach to the program by July 1, 1966, and has proposed establishment of a foreign a i d planning committee, with two- thirds of its members comi n g from Congress, to set new guidelines for handouts. It is progress of a sort. •it -tr -Cr SUKARNO'S AND NASSER'S FEELINGS — What the Senate committee has done is to say out loud that American foreign aid was not intended solely to provide needy nations with a r i c h Santa Claus. As a part of our international policy, its chief function is, or should be, to gain desired political ends. Foreign aid is politics on the international level, but in the past its effectiveness has been blunted by the Nice Nellies among our diplomats who have worr led more about hurting a fore i g n country's feelings than a b o u spending the taxpayers' money wisely. This, of course, is utter non sense. As Egypt's Nasser h a shown by his whimpering pleas for more food aid, a foreign nation has to be mortally offend ed to turn down a multimillion dollar gift from Uncle S,am Indonesia's Sukarno has man aged to be so offended, but hi can be dismissed as a peculia: neurotic. Ironically, the foreign aid pro gram in recent years has been its worst enemy. Although impar tlal public opinion polls showe Berry's World hat Americans supported the principle, wasteful and wishf u 1- hinking administration has hreatened a collapse of both public and Congressional s u p- rart. The program's popular! t y ms not enhanced only a few weeks ago when Johnson's spe- ial ambassador, Ellsworth Junker, practically pleaded with Sukarno to let a Peace Corps unit remain in that country. Happily, Sukarno refused. <r a ft CUT-BACK SPENDING—Dur- ng this period, AID has survived largely because of critics on Capitol Hill like Louisi a na's Rep. Otto Passman. As P a s s- man, not a foreign aid crusader, noted many times, his House Ap- priations subcommittee has act;d as a brake.on spending and ;hereby has saved the program from falling of its own weight. By cutting off some of the fat, Passman and others have made the AID program more palatable to Capitol Hill. This is the lesson the Senate Foreign Relations Committee apparently has digested. In dealing with its enemies on the H i 11, AID often comes out the stronger because its requests h a v e. been reduced to sensible proportions. But its real danger lies in the glandular thinking of its extravagant friends, who bel i e v e because it is good it has no need to be businesslike. Americans who like things to be tidy, hopefully have swollowed that frivolously altruistic line for the last time. Timely Quotes Church unity is like peace.

Medical Missionary Is 'Belle Of Da Nang' to Airmen, Marines By HAL BOYLE DA NANG, South Viet Nam (AP) — To airmen and Marines she's "the belle of Da Nang." Miss Betty Olsen, 30, a medical missionary, takes the nickname as a pleasant joke. I think I'm the only single girl here," she said, "but there are a number of married women in our mission." Many an American girl would think it a dream situation to be the only girl amid 10,000 men. But Betty, who is tall and slender and has auburn hair and green eyes, is more amused than thrilled. Every Saturday morning she serves as a volunteer worker at the USO building in the heart of the city. Many of the men have asked for a date, but each has met with a refusal. "They are all nice and polite," said Miss Olsen. "If they want to be friends, that's fine. But I don't date them. I am not interested in romance, and I missionaries in 24 foreign countries.

She was born in Africa and both her parents are missionaries stationed there on the Ivory Coast. Betty was educated at the New York Missionary College and studied nursing at the Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn She was sent here last December by the Christian and Missionary Alliance which has 900 earning the language— a new missionary always does that the first year," Betty said. But she also attends six religious meetings weekly and spends two nights a week teaching English to a group of 60 Vietnamese. "Most of them are teen-agers but a few are older," she said. "They are very interested and eager to learn. "They are particularly curious about America. I told them about the skyscrapers and the subways but I am afraid they didn't understand subways or why anyone would want them. "The Vietnamese people I have met are very friendly to Americans and say they are glad our men are here." Although she gets a little homesick, Betty plans on spending her life in Viet Nam. She hopes after further study to take a post in a leprosarium in the interior. At present, however, that area is still largely controlled by the Viet Cong enemy. Asked if she ever felt uneasy at being in a war zone, Betty looked surprised, as if the thought of danger had never occurred to her. "God called me to be a missionary, 4 ' she said simply.

Romney, Legislators Agree on Workmen's Compensation Bill A Daily Thought For everything there Is a sea* son, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away. Eccl. 3:8. Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.—Thomas A. Edison, American inventor. By DICK BARNES Associated Press Writer LANSING (AP)-Oov. George Romney and legislators reached agreement Friday on a workmen's compensation bill which will phase in new and higher benefits over a two-year period. The compromise came after four days of intensive negotiations and only tour days before Romney was expected to veto the Democratic-approved plan waiting on his desk. The bill will now be recalled for final legislative action next week. Romney feared the Democrats' benefit scale, if immediately enacted, would scare industry from expanding in or entering Michigan. That scale of weekly payments to injured workers, ranging from $64 to $93 per week, now will not take effect until September 1967. The present $33-$57 scale will be upped to $58-$91 this September 1 and to $6l-$92 in September 1966. * * * Romney. House Speaker Joseph KowalsW and Senate Majority Leader Raymond Dzendzel said in a joint statement that the bill "will make Mich- benefit oiider the compromise plan would be about .the same as under the origlnaT-Demo- cratic bill since the Compromise plan same as would under be about the the* orifinal igan's (Compensation) act one of the best, if not the best, in the nation."

McNamara and Philip A. Hart of Michigan voted with the majority Thursday in the Senate's 6425 defeat of a voting rights bill amendment proposed by Sen. Sam J. Ervin, D-N.C.

Republicans agreed to the Sept. 1 date in place of a disputed clause which the Michigan insurance Information service Insisted would have made the bill retroactive to July 1 once it took effect, 90 days following the end of the legislative session. Democrats insisted they never intended retroactivity. Sen. Sander Levin, D-Berkley, chairman of the Senate Labor Committee, said that over the next three years, the average Democratic bill since the*compromise will take effect sooner. Workers injured before Sept. l will receive the old benefit* throughout their disability. But those hurt thereafter will receive the 1966 and 1M7 increases if they remain'injured. Another compromise point exempts an agricultural employer from paying medical insurance if he hires only one worker and that one for less than' five weeks. * •* * • Senate Democrats originally passed a bill with benefits ranging from $75 to $100 per week, depending on the injured worker's number of dependents. Fearing a veto, they later went along with a House cutback of benefits to $64493. Romney's original proposal was $52-$90. The bill has been estimated to cost industry $45 million more per year when the highest benefit scale is reached. This; would be about a 45 per cent increase —but, according to Levin, • raise of only about 1 1-5 cents per man hour. The bill limits benefits to two- thirds of a worker's average weekly salary if that figure if lower than the dollar scale. Bit it removes the 500-week limitation of benefits, extends widows' benefits from 450 to 500 weeks and takes the $10;500 ceiling off silicosis benefits.
