FOUR IftONWOOD DAliV dlbSf, ItONWOOD, MICHIGAN THURSDAY. MAY 27,1965. I RON WOOD DAILY GLOBE Th« Daily Glob* U an independent newspaper, tupporting what it believes to be right and opposing what It believes to bt wrong, regardless of party politics, and publishing the news fairly and impartially." -Linwood I. Noyes, Editor and Publishe. 1927-1964. Mrs. Linwood I. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher Steel This Week Cleveland—Continued strength in steel demand is prompting mills to keep controls on order acceptance. Steel magazine said. Now that the steel labor contracts have been extended to Sept. 1, mills are trying to catch up on shipments and get into an improved delivery position. One mill says it leels it must blank out July to get caught up on deliveries. Several others are revamping schedules la expedite deliveries. New ordering has subsided only moderately, and customers have not canceled orders or requests for shipments. In fact, one mill in the Chicago area reports an increase of 20 per cent uver the week ago level—its order inflow is equal to 80 per cent of capacity. Plates continue to be the product in strongest demand. Activity is spurred by strong construction schedules in cargo shipbuilding, deep pressure tanks, dam projects (there are about 9S underway in the U.S.), and equipment in the chemical processing and refining industries. Biggest takers of sheets are the automobile avid appliance industries. Sheet order entry has edged down a bit. The high rate of construction maintains strong demand for structurals. Fabricating shops report that order backlogs arc growing. Shops fabricating reinforcing bars also report heavy backlogs of orders. Despite the efforts of mills to become current in deliveries, ingot output and finished steel shipments in May will slip below April's. The reason: The need to repair equipment that has been pushed hard for several'months. Steel ingot production this week will decline slightly from the 2,650,000 tons Steel estimates were produced last week. That's equivalent annual rate of 139 million tons. Output in 1964 totaled a record 127 million tons. The push to ship material before May 1 has left some mills short of semifinished products for processing in May. For example, a Midwestern mill concentrated on processing and shipping hot rolled sheet tonnage before May 1 rather than produce the hot bands needed for its cold mill. Result: The mill hasn't been able to operate tit capacity since then because of a lack ot hot bands. A spotchcck of metal working manageis by Steel indicates they are optimistic about the outlook for incoming orders in the summer months. But they look for the summer to be rugged: Sales people will be frustrated because plants won't be able to turn out goods fast enough. Production planners will be scrarnblinc to keep equipment humming despite long vacations, more overtime, higher accident rates, and mounting maintenance problems. Purchasing men will be fighting to get materials as leadtimes continue to stretch and price stability threatens to topple. Getting the Drop on Road Menaces Making the Social Register may be a commendable accomplishment; getting your name on the National Driver Register is a downright foolish one. Maintained bv the Bureau of Public Roads in Washington since 1961, the National Driver Register holds the names of drivers throughout the nation whose licenses have been withdrawn for drunken driving or involvement in a fatal accident. There are presently about 620,000 names on (ile, and the states are checking their driver license applicatohs against the register at the rate of 500,000 a month. Here's how the system worked in a recent case, as reported by Highway User magazine. A midwestern applicant for A license in Florida indicated on his form that his license had never been suspended or revoked. He Was accordingly, issued a license in that State. Meanwhile, his application was routinely checked with the clearing house iti Washington, touching off the 10 millionth search of the register. The register's electronic computers disclosed that the man had in fact previously lost licenses in Illinois and Missouri for drunken driving. As a result, the license granted him in Florida has been revoked and he faces prosecution for falsifying his application. To date, some 75,000 identifications ol lawbreaking drivers have been made by the National Driver Register—75,000 potential accidents that aren't going to happen. Homing-in on Garage Doors In this complicated age, even slaying in your own back yard won't necessarily keep you out of trouble, particularly if you are one ol those progressive homeowners who have radio-controlled garage doors. The Federal Aviation Agency has discovered that the equipment that operates the doors can be a hazard to flying by interfering with air navigation signals. Thaugh they are receivers, they can generate signals like a small radio transmitter if their antennas are not sufficiently isolated. In one week in Los Angeles recentlv. the FAA tracked down 58 offending garage door openers and shut them down. While most'of the trouble has occurred near big airfields, some receivers are strong enough to be picked up by aircraft as far as 16 miles away. Thus it would be possible, says the FAA, for a pilot to home-in on somebody's garage and fly directly toward it — "conceivably with disastrous results." The hazard works both ways. The doors on one garage in the Midwest open or close every time a certain flight passes over. In other locations, signals from radio navigation r.ids have caused doors to flip-flop at all hours. Some pranksters have discovered a new sport in operating garage doors with transmitters as they pass by on the street. The FAA recommends that owners cut down garage door receiver antennas to the minimum need for driveway operations. Or else get out and lift like the rest of us. Real economy to a woman shopper is to go broke saving money at a bargain sale. It's okay for an ambitious businessman to have a powerful drive—on the fairway. The late, late movie is the cement that fills in the little chinks between commercials. Blood on the Moon of the Caribbean *Sssr M.V a Sf,, By lohn Chamberlain Is President Lyndon Johnson, who acted with such commendable dispatch to forestall a Castroite coup in the Dominican Republic, about to snatch defeat in the Caribbean from Hie jaws of victory? This question was at once raised in Washing- Ion among knowledgeable Latin American experts when the news of the proposed McGeorge Bundy slate for a "compromise" Dominican government came through. The Bundy decision, as of this moment of writing, is that Antonio Guzman, who was minister of Agriculture in the government of former President Bosch, is the best the U.S. can settle for as head of a new "constitutionalist" regime. Nobody is accusing Guzman of being a "soft-on-communism" man under Bosch, but the question of his ability to force economic reforms on the Dominican Republic has been raised by those who studied the audits of the Banca Agricola, on whose governing board Guzman has sat. By North American standards the mortgage loans made by this bank, with Guzman's imprimatur as a director, have not been exactly gilt-edge. More importantly, Guzman, as Bosch's minister of Agriculture, loaded the Agriculture Extension Service with numerous party hacks who, as this column's anti-Bosch infonnants in Washington insist, had to be unloaded by Mario Mathis Ricart, who was Donald Reib Cabral's appointee to the Agricultural secre- taryship post. The charge is that at least 20 /per cent of the Extension Service agents originally hired by Guzman not only lacked •ny .sort of farm expertise but were illiterate as well. • Coming down the line, Milton Messina, who has been slated to become the new Dominican Minister of' Finance, has a background ''that includes service as Dictator Trujillo's Ambassador to Canada and as the Trujiliista I tfecretarv of State for Industry and governor of 1 I* Central Bank. •Or ' This could be neither here nor there, for the Trujillo regime was served by honest men as well as by men of questionable standards. Messina might turn out to be the best minister of finance in the world. But the point made by Washington experts in Dominican affairs is that it is hypocritical to offer the proposed "compromise" government as being entirely devoid of people who had connections with the Trujillo regime. Another hypocritical contention is that Colonel Loran Fernandez, who has been slated to be chief of staff of the armed forces in a Guzman Cabinet, can be counted on to be objective in his proposed role of "compromise" prmy boss. After all, Colonel Fernandez rebelled against the authority of the Donald Reid Cabal government in order to serve as ihe dissident Colonel Caamano's chief officer. This means that the most important post in the proposed "compromise" Cabinet is in effect being offered as a reward for rebellion. The hypocrisy involved in the proposed ^transaction will be duly noted in Colombia, Guatemala, and other shaky Latin American lands. Those who look askance at the proposed McGeorge Bundy "compromise"! regime wonder if a "diplomatic Bay of Pigs" may not be in the works. They point out that nothing will be solved by a Guzman regime. The European and Cuban-trained Communist agents have already benefited from their coup; they have armed their men with machine guns, rifles, and grenades, and these men have already faded into the hills and into tha urban "underground" where they will be able to set up business as castroite "irregulars." While a befuddled regime of "intellectuals" carries on, the Castroites will be able to await the day when the Marines leave the island. The anti-Bosch elements who have been armed by General Imbert may be just as loath as the Castroites to give up their weapons. So there's blood on the moon scheduled for the Dominican Republic any way you take i^> "Forward March!" The National Whirligig •fMMMMI By ANDREW TULLY WASHINGTON — President Johnson feels the greatest danger to world peace is that Communist china will misjudge our intentions In Southeast Asia— especially our absolutely firm decision to stay in South Viet Nam. The President Is anxious that no one should kid himself; American troops will not be withdrawn from South Viet Nam until that country Is at peace and has a strong and viable democratic government capable of building a prosperous econo m y. He Is still willing to discuss the war anywhere, anytime, and wishes the Communists would set a time and place and test him. « * * DOUBTED EFFECT OF LULL-Moreover, he is deler. mined to keep trying to flnfl some other bit of initiative that will persuade the enemy to end the war.

The phrase "test or device" is defined as any requirement that as a prerequisite for voting or registration for voting, a person must "demonstrate the ability to read, write, understand, or interpret any matter, demonstrate any educat ion achievement or his knowled g e of any particular subject, possess good moral character, or prove his qualifications by the voucher or registered voters or members of any other class." O O & The federal govern m e n t, therefore, becomes the judge of whether certain state laws—although duplicating statutes existing in several other states of the union—shall be permitt e d to operate at all in what might be called "suspicious states." While there is a provisi o n for court review, the whole iss u e turns on the circumstance that what is lawful in one state of the union could be adjudged unlawful in some other state — based wholly on suspicion of alleged abuse or misuse of power. Hitherto, whenever the c o n- stitution has been violated, the courts have been in a position was a "political" matter. Not until the recent reapportionment cases did the Supreme Court consent to hear or decide what it called "political" cases. Since the voting-rights bill states at any time of any rights or privileger specially delegated to the states under the explicit words of the Constituion. (Copyright, 1985, New York Herald Tribune Inc.) The Washington Scene By BRUCE BIOSSAT WASHINGTON — (NEA) — With all the bungling "and confusion that has marked events in the Domi n i c a n Republic, it seems plain enough that President Johnson would make the same basic decision to move in if he had it all to do over again. The evidence that a Communist take-over threatened was credible enough to satisfy s o me very cool heads in Washington. It was thoroughly convinci n g to Latin diplomats in Santo Domingo and elsewhere. Though they are now saying some very harsh things about U. S. Diplomacy, their private response then was: "At last you Americans are being decisive!" The Latin Americans obviously don't hold to that view any more. Our efforts strike some of them as painfully amateurish. A seasoned associate of the , to punish the guilty individuals, i President thinks a fundamental j including state officials.

We were unprepared for its complexities, and we are now badly enmeshed In them. Paramount on the list Is the terrible dearth of suitable government talent. The* decades of the dictator Trujillo bequeathed the country nothing better than concerned. What is happening today is reminiscent of the "tragic era" of 100 years ago, when Congress disregarded the doctrine of Abraham Lincoln about an "indivisible union," and actually expelled from the union certain of a cluster of willowy, opportunis- the southern states. The whole theory of the Lincoln administration was that there was no right of secession and that the southern states were a part of the union, though in rebellion.

Antonio Im- b e r t Barreras as prospective leader of a provisional government. He apparently is viewed by many Dominicans as symbolic of antidemocratic army elements. The president's mission to Santo Domingo, led by McGeorge Bundy, is accepted as admission of error, since its purpose was to find a leader more tactable than Imbert. This enterpr i s e seems only to compound the impression of serious midjudg- ment. The impression is perhaps not wholly fair. There is no evidence that talent scouts for the OAS the United Nations or anybody else would have had much better luck. The pressure of crisis is no help to such a quest. •to -ft -h We shall need a stroke of high good fortune to get out of the mess. Even if we can get it, we may not shake off the image of ineptitude which clings to ou Dominican endeavors. The really tough question is why we were not better pre pared for the realities. The revolt of April 24 was no a surprise to us. The CIA had given the administration warn ing of it more than 10 days earl ier. That period, plus the fou additional days before we sen in the Marines, allowed us a chance for a hard look at th Dominican prospect. Skeptics who wonder how wel that time was used may not b easy to answer. The talent nun we eventually undertook under extreme pressure of time migh have benefited from harder pre liminary digging. This is no to minimize the difficulties o the search. With his nose for trouble, the President was unset tied from the start over the Domini can affair. The danger was plai tie end might be far les tidy than the beginning. He went ahead because he (el he had to, as he would again in similar circumstances. But hi nose was accurate. Trouble ha dropped upon him. The note of promise is that by the word of his friends, he is worrying almost liter a 11 around the clock about getting out of it.

Destruction of bridges poses problems in troop transportation; and the Viet Cong has been hurt by the destruction of 20 per cent of their ammunition dumps. * * * RESENTS BRIBERY HARGE —The President resents charges by his critics that ie is trying to bribe North Viet Nam by his offer of economic aid after peace is secured. He takes the attitude that if he drops a $100 bill in the collection plate at church he is not ;rying to bribe the preacher, but is doing it because it is right. He feels strongly that it is right for the United States to offer some of its wealth to help underdeveloped countries. One of the mistakes Johnson hopes the Communist world will not make is to believe that the country is divided over the Viet Nam war. He likes to remind visitors that the Congressional resolution in support of Amer- can policy in Viet Nam was carried by 502 votes to 2, and that he got an additional $700 million to finance the operation in two days time, with only 10 no votes. a <r a :-...-..
