rou» IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN FRIDAY, JULY 16, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "The Daily Globe is an independent newspaper, supporting what it believe* to be right and opposing what it believes to be wrong, regardless of party politics, and publishing the news fairly and impartially." —Linwood I. Noyes, Editor and Publisher, 1927-1964. Mrs. linwood I. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher The Reserves Riddle Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara is learning that Congress is a deliberative body. Since the Berlin crisis of 1961. which showed that many reserve units were undermanned and under-equipped and that many individual reservists were poorly trained, McNamaia has been trying to eliminate flaws in the reserve structure. A Pentagon reserves reorganization plan was .put into effect two years ago, but only aft'.-i it had been revised to meet criticism by a House Armed Services subcommittee headed by Mep F. Edward Hebert (D La.). Now the same subcommittee is resuming hearings on a McNamara plan for further streamlining. McNamara at a Pentagon news conference of Dec. 12 had announced plans to cretre a single Army reserve force 550,000 strong, under management of the National Guard All Army Reserve units not transferred to the Guard would be eliminated. All individuals not assigned to a specific unit would be placed in an inactive manpower pool. The Secretary maintained that he needed no additional authority to cany nut the me.rger other than a simple change in the defense appropriation for the Guard and Reserves. Congress—in this case Armed Services subcnn,mit- tees of both House and Senate — said No McNamara joined Rep. Hebert on M;>\ 15 in a press conference which reconciled si-me of their differences. McNamara said that the Hebert subcommittee hearings had "indicated that certain legislative changes are neuesvary if the realignment play is to fully achieve our ultimate objectives." Subsequently the House underlined the Hebert negative in dealing with the Defense Department appropriations bill. Acting on lecommendations of its Armed Services Committee, the House included 8504.8 million above the Pentagon requests for the Army's Reserve and Guard forces This provision contemplates continuation of both forces at tlieir current combined strength level of 650.000 men. Tlie Committee's report had said thai ^his provision, coupled with denial of S459.S" million for a merged Reserve and Guard, was not intended to imply that the Committee bad "taken, a position either for or against' McNamara's merger proposal. The report said the Committee only approved separate funding "pending legislative action?! implementing reorganization. Hebert is not threatening as- his subcommittee resumes hearings «.»n the McNamara gambit. "The committee members will make up their own minds," he said in annplmriiig the new sessions which begin on Monday. "If they don't want a merger there won't be a merger." The citizen soldier, or reservist, has bec'n a fixture of American life since colonial times. George Washington in his Sentiments on a Peace Establishment proposed that all "able- bodied young men between the ages of 18 and 25 be drafted to form a corps ir every state ... to be employed whenever it mav become nr.res- sary in the service of their country." Since colonial times Congress has insisted on having its say about the size, equipment, training, and conditions of service of the militia - a lesson which Secretary McNamara is learning very thoroughly. Man of Many Talents Fortunate are those who. unlike most of us, have a second vocation to fall back upon should unforeseen circumstances add them to the rolls of unemployed. That ace in the hole, that umbrella for a rainy day are reassuring. One of our more distinguished citizens has a huge stock of those "rainy day umbrellas." Employed now and with the prospect that his contract could be renewed for another four years in 196S, he could, if need be, possibly turn a former vocation or any one of his present evocations into the ammunition to keep the wolf away. Described by one writer recently as "a teacher on leave from a Houston classroom," this rhap could elect to return to the profession, probably as a teacher of contemporary history. Then, too, he might try his hand at raising beef cattle and, as a sideline, he might moonlight as a barbecue chef. He could even bottle and sell a barbecue sauce that he has won high praise from epicurean friends. Though a bit old for the racket, he might try over-the-road racing. He has been known, in the past, to have gotten a car over the highway at speeds that confounded drivers following him. Should none of these appeal, he'd still have a card up his sleeve. He is understood to have close connections and considerable influence with an entrepreneur in the television business and could just possibly wangle a job of sume sort or other. Call Him Yo-yo Malcolm Scott Carpenter was the first American to make multiple orbits of the earth On May 24, 1962, his Aurora 7 thrilled the country with its three-orbit journey. Having visited space, he's now on his wav in the opposite direction. In mid-August. Carpenter and teammates will dive to a special station 210 feet deep in Mie Pacific off La ' Jolla, Calif. There he'll participate in a 45- day experiment involving living and working below the surface. This courageous pioneer will then have been in the forefront of two of man's most important penetrations of his environment, certainly a remarkable achievement for a lifetime. "Secretary" stems from the Latin word for "secret." Then how come women outnumber men in that field? Life is like a supermarket It offers a wide variety of attractions, but we always end up at the check-out counter. Passengers who won't jnove to the rear of the bus don't realize that the back "^ts there as soon as the front. Price of haircuts is up af/ain. Nobody can accuse the Beatles of being dumb. Fast Solution Could Be Dangerous (Copyright 19U, King r««tur«« lyndlcit*. Inc.I By lohn Chamberlain One of the worst features ol the bog-down of the .war in South Viet Nam is that it puts great pressure on Lyndon Johnson to get a fast settlement of the crisis in the Dominican Republic. But a quickie in Santo Domingo might be the very worst thing that could happen. As of this moment of writing, the news is that the formation of a provisional Dominican government is in sight. The name of Hector Garcia Godoy, foreign minister in the old |uan Bosch government, is being mentioned by, the OAS as possibly acceptable to both the rebel faction of Caamano and the junta legime of General Tony Imbert. But the choice of a pro- nsonal president is only the veriest beginning of a temporary solution. i If the inauguration of an interim regime is tp have any meaning acceptable either to the Ujiited States or to the genuinely anti-Castro forces throughout Latin America, certain preliminary conditions must be laid clown. The prime stumbling block to a peaceful transition i^; the question of the guns that were distributed to the street mobs at the outset of the recent revolt. These are still in the hands of people who are amenable to Castroite ma- n|[pulation. At one point in the disturbance.-- at least four hundred vehicles ( \vere permitted to go through the lines from the rebel stronghold iii ; Santo Domingo to the countryside. Presumably the vehicles were chock-a-block with rifles atid ammunition. 'Both the Caamano rebels and the Imbert niita agree that the guns must be turned in. f ut Caamano wants them to be returned to a provisional. government. The junta, on the o her hand, wants to recover them before a osw temporary regime is established. The dif- fcirence could be vitally important, for a pro v sional government might boggle at showing ffie 'muscle necessary to collect the guns for Fi at of offending its supporters on the left. Another thing that must be settled is the si atus of the military. If the rebel officers are t< \ be amnestied and returned to their old jobs, " h ?\v trustworthy will they be? And who is to be the boss of the military anyway? This is the key job in almost any Latin American land. The more starry-eyed among North American liberals would like to see a temporary regime in the Dominican Republic that would not be under the protection of the military. But this is a utopianism that makes no connection with Latin American realities. An}' Latin American government must rest on guns of a sort If you get rid of the regular army bV turning things over to a constabulary, as happened in Nicaragua and an older Santo Domingo, vou are likely to get a Somoza or a Trujillo out of it. On the other hand, if things remain under the domination of an orthodox military establishment, little progress is made toward democracy. The best compromise under the circumstances might be to follow the' suggestion ol that able student of Latin American affairs, Peter Nehemkis. Mr. Nehemkis, a Washing ton lawyer who has represented American corporations in South America, outlines a program under which the United States would back Latino military establishments, with the proviso that they use our money on sjrand- scale economic construction carried through by local army engineers corps. 'Instead of supporting a Dominican military force that sits in its barracks eating high off the hog," says Mr. Nehemkis, "why not put soldiers to work planting thousands of seedlings to restore the ravaged island forests?" Traditionally, the Latin American military establishments have been the road and bridge builders of their lands. "The engineers' ap proach," says Mr. Nehemkis, "should be mag- nifid to include hospital and school construction." This would be a return to the ideas ol the original Latin liberators, Bolivar and San Martin, who saw the military as a force foi freedom. / Some of these points should be firmly understood before carte blanche is given to any coalition group in Santo Domingo. Once the U.S. troops and the OAS have departed, it might be too late. A Little Child Shall Lead Them Today in World Affairs not been victorious over European dictatorships.

The speech reflects serious misconceptions of the traditional policy of the United States and is a discouraging development with respect to Latin America as a whole. For if a country as advanced as Chile, to which the United States has repeatedly given assistance, does not understand the role of this country in protecting Latin America against aggression as well as against Communist subversion which can lead to inter- na'l friction, then much of what has been done by the United States appears to have gone for naught. o a o "We are a small country," said President Frei.

I want a system without hegemo ny.'V ' The policy of the United States is not, by any stretch of the imagination, based on a desire for one inch of territory In Latin America. The history of recent years has shown that the sole objective of this country has been to do what the Monroe Doctrine originally contemplated —namely, to keep any European power from establishing a foothold by gaining control over any government in this hemisphere. Chile is one of the countries that has long been protected by the Monroe Doctrine and has benefited from the economic aid extended by the United States. In fact, if this country today abandoned the principle of the Monroe Doctrine and the resolution adopted by the Organization of American States expanding that same doctrine, it would not be long before Chile would be nominated by Communist imperialism, just as in Cuba. 009 There are plenty of people in the United States who think that By RAY CROMLEY WASHINGTON (NBA) — Superintendent James J. M c Namee, of the Philadelphia Police Department, constructed a "grocery store" and a "finance office," complete with mannequins and props, in the middle of his police training facilities. He then selected 60 police officers with reputations for judgement and ability with firearms. Scripts were prepar e d and, one after another, officer teams were placed where they could hear but not see what was happening in the "store" o r "office." Once the officers.ex- posed themselves they were given three seconds to d' cide what action to tak. Afterward, they had to justify their decisions. After eliminating officers who failed in these practice sessions, teams were made up, trained and planted in Philadephia business houses during regular hours in a play at catching robbers in action. a <t * Among the results: A robber caught red-handed holding up a grocery admitted 12 other crimes. A bandit arrested during a robbery cleared up 20 previously uncolved cases. Publicity on these planted teams seemingly had a psychological effect; Philadelphia robberies declined. Superintendent McNamee is a graduate of the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) N a - tional Academy, which is 30 years old on July 29. McNamee's technique is typical o f the way the academy trains local police officers.

These mobs seemingly were becoming too well-organized and too technically competent for many local police forces to handle. One opponent of a national police force was J. Edgar Hoover, then as now head of the FBI and the man most likely t o have been chosen head of such a police force had it been e s - tablisheri. Hoover argued that centralization of police power was dangerous tc democracy. * * * At Hoover's recommendation, the federal government set up a national police training academy instead of the national police force. It was to train police and only as requested by local police agencies. The academy's aim was to enable local police to move technically so far ahead of the criminal and his highly paid attorneys that he not only would be caught but convicted as well. In the past 30 years, the FBI National Academy has trained 4,700 police officers. It now graduates 200 a year. President Johnson has asked for a six- fold expansion that would result in 1,200 graduates a year. In this day when there is so much pressure for the centralization of authority, it is interesting to remember one case i n which a man fought against more power for himself.
