FOUR IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN TUESDAY, JUNE 15,1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE Tht Daily Glebe Is 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." -Linwood I. Noyes, Editor and Publishe, 1927-1964. Asian Torture Mrs. Lin wood I. Noyes, President Edwin j. Johnson, Fditor and Publisher Our Anguished Artists Estrangement between the Johnson administration and the nation's intellectual rom- munity over foreign policy issues has become a painful experience for both sides. No President, least of all a great consensus-maker like Lyndon B. Johnson, like the pursue policies which alienate such an influential segment of society. Nor do educators, artists, poets and authors enjoy provoking discord at a difficult moment in the country's life. But the government and many artists are in fundamental disagreement over the means by which the United States should assert its influence and power. Artistic sensitivities recoil from the use of bombs and napalm in Viet Nam and from the intervention of U.S. Marines in the Dominican Republic. Archibald MacLeish, the poet, recently expressed the doubts that assail many artists in these times when he declared: "The famous teach-ins in universities across the country where our normally silent students spent long, angry nights were not . . . debates on foreign policy: they were searchings of the national conscience." Faith in "the idea of America" has been seriously shaken. MacLeish said, and "the feel of America in the world's mind" has begun to change, for 'Americans as well as the world. From all advance indications, the White House Festival of the Arts will be a lively, possibly abrasive, session. Arthur John Llersey intends to read from his book, Hiroshima, in a not-so-subtle effort to instruct the President on the horrors of atomic war. Absent but not forgotten will be poet Robert Lowell. He sent President Johnson a letter of withdrawal that has been widely praised for its courteous wording. Wrote this gentle soul: "We are in danger of imperceptibly becoming an explosive and suddenly chauvinistic < nation, and we may even be drifting on our way to the last nuclear ruin. I know it is hard for a responsible man to act; it is also painful for the private and irresolute man to dare criticism. At this anguished, delicate, and perhaps determining moment, I feel I am serving you and. our country best by not taking part in the White House Festival of the Arts." Several luminaries, notably novelist Saul (Herzog) Bellow, have indicated that they will attend the festival despite their disagreement with Johnson on foreign policies. They obviously do not share Lowell's fears that an artist cannot enjoy public celebrations without making subtle public commitments. Biochemist Linus Pauling provided the perfect answer to this dilemma three years ago. He resolutely picketed the White House one day to protest U.S. nuclear tests and then stayed for dinner, so to speak, by affably attending a White House affair given the next day by President and Mrs. Kennedy for Nobel Prize laureates. Some say that recognition of the vital role of the artist in American life really blossomed during the Kennedy years. Bait President Johnson has not been negligent. Me has asked Congress to establish a National Foundation on the Arts and Humanities and use federal money to provide grants, loans and matching funds for artistic endeavors. Not since New Deal days has the federal government provided direct aid to creative artists. It may do so this year. The President also has spoken eloquently on the "freedom of the artist to pursue his calling in his own wav." This is what the artists seem to be doing now. New Aid for Egypt? Sometime before the end of June, the Johnson administration is likely to announce a resumption of surplus food shipments to the United Arab Republic. The State Department has strongly recommended to the President that he carry out the last phase of a three-year, S5(K) million surplus food agreement that expires on June 30. About S37.5 million more in surplus wheat remains to be delivered under the 1962 agreement. Last January the House of Representatives tried to halt the expiring program after President Abdel Carnal Nasser rashly told the United States in Egyptian slang to go jump in the Mediterranean with its aid. Later, under White House pressure. Congress voted Piesi- dent Johnson authority to continue aid to Cairo provided he determined that this was "in the national interest." Nasser's most recent actions have made it somewhat less difficult for President Johnson so to determine. The. Egyptian strongman has agreed to compensate the United Slates for the burning of a U.S. Information Agency library in Cairo, and he has halted arms shipments to anti-western rebels in the Congo (the rebels have been all but annihilated). His most important step in an apparent program of appeasement, however, came early in June when he told Arab heads of government that their divisions and weaknesses made all-out armed attack against Israel impossible at this stage. As a reward for his return to relative courtesy, Nasser is reported prepared to ask the United States to sign a new three-year agreement for another $500 million in surplus food. Six out of every ten loaves of bread eatfn in Egypt today are baked with U.S.-supplied wheat flour, and no other country has offered to replace the American food shipments. Many American officials believe that if peace in the Middle East can be bought for 8500 million in surplus food, it is a bargain the United States should not pass up. Some people look bored even when they are not in society. With youngsters, it's Dad who takes care of the overhead and Mom the underfoot. The two best arguments in favor of marriage are an old maid and a bachelor. The Booby-Trap in Grocery Prices r.iS3sriK,•!£&..*&., ^ him In pushing his campaign to substitute able- bodied U.S. citizens for migrant Mexicans and British West Indians on the farms of America, W. Willard Wirtz, the embattled secretary of Labor, is laying all sorts of booby-traps for the party of Lyndon Johnson. The trouble that the Secretary is causing isn't widely apparent just yet. But, as Senator George Murphy of California keeps warning us, a revolt of significant proportions is blowing up. And since it involves every family's grocery bill, it will be much more than a California proposition. It's a case of good intentions colliding with ancient habits and with certain facts of the calendar that Secretary Wirtz has not considered. The Secretary of Labor, with one eye on Poverty Czar Sargent Shriver's problems, has had a great vision. Quite commendablv he wants to indoctrinate young Americans with ideas of discipline and a willingness to work. So we have a projected progam at "A.T.'s — or athletes temporarily employed in agricultural manpower. The Secretary has promised to take care of California's harvesting needs by shipping vacationing school kids from Texas at $50 a head, or from anywhere west of the Mississippi at a cost running up to SS5 in transportation. The trouble with this plan is that crops don't accommodate themselves either to the school year or to the average high school boy's staying power. At Blythe, on the Colorado - River, the temperature in the summer fields is 115 degrees fahrenheit. You pay a kid to come out there, not too many miles from Death Valley, and he, wilts. By then it is too late to get somebody else. But even if the kid stands up—and some schoolboys have always worked in summer- he has to go back to school in September, This is Ae month in which the California harvesting season is roaring into high. In August, California farmers need 348,000 harvest hands; in September, they need 406,000. But the school athlete component of August's 348,000 will be pulling out after Labor Day to go back to playing football. Because of the unconsidered factors in Secretary Wirtz's plans, Californians have cut r their tomato plantings this year from 143,000 acres to 100,000 acres. Since California accounts for 70 per cent of the nation's canned tomatoes, what this will do to the U.S. housewife next winter is enough to make Republicans happy everywhere. The loss in gross ineome to California's farmers because of the implanted tomato acreage should run to $21,500,000. The coming disaster in tomatoes means the pizza vote in addition to the votes of housewives and tomato growers. The housewives are already grumbling because of the rise in strawberry prices (up 30 per cent, wholesale, over a year ago), in asparagus (up 25 per cent), in Imperial Galley jumbo cantaloupes (up 33 per cent, and in iceberg lettuce (up 180 per cent). To combat the niute propaganda of the wholesale price list, Secretary Wirtz's department has tried to blame the middleman for the rise in the cost of eating. Late in May the Secretary was contending that shipments of strawberries from California were a mere forty- six carloads behind. But the subsequent figures have been cruel to the Secretary, for by the beginning of June the strawberry shipments were off by 850 carloads, and on June 7 the figure had risen to 1,255 carloads. Since a carload is worth $4,550, what this means to growers and shippers as well as housewives is considerable. Secretary Wirtz's combination of good intentions and plain bull-headedness has California's Democratic Governor Pat Brown going crazy in an attempt to balance things between loyalty to the administration in Washington and his natural desire to please Californium. When asked what he thought of Wirtz. he said: "I think he does a good job, yes. I think it's very difficult. He's doing a different job from the one our Department of Employment thinks should be done. But it's not easy and he could be right. 1 think he's wrong, but he could be right." This is the authentic voice of a man on the rack. The Governor of Florida is luckier than Pat Brown. For U. S, Attorney General Kalzen- bach, invoking his power over immigration, overruled Wirtz in the matter of permitting West Indian labor to slay on in Florida. Kat- zeiibuch said he didn't want to make things hard for Lyndon Johnson in Florida when he had Viet Nam tu worry about. The Washington Scene By RAY CROMLEY WASHINGTON Defense Secretary (NEA) — Robert McNamara is sponsoring some computer studies on how nations react in tense international situations. It's a sort of "war gaming" on the "behavior of nations." The "findings" are important because they could affect Defense Department decisions. These Defense Departm e n t men are seeking solutions for war short of total victory for either side. They reason that maybe two enemy countries "by doing some co-operating while the conflict is on ... could both gain a little. They would not gain as much as if they won a war ... taut they would not stand the risk of losing as much as if they lost the war."These scientists have a problem. No adequate mathematical theory has yet taeen inverted for "war games' in which neit her country tries to win. ft a ft In the computer games, a variety of strategies are bei n g played one against another. One is a "hard line" strate- on an international scale what John Kennedy tried in his presidential campaign when he commissioned research men mathematically to predict political behavior in the United States. Business Mirror By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — Your youngster's love for the telephone increasingly is carrying right through to the co'lege years. And the rapid increase in the number seeking higher edu- lation is affording new growth for the nation's telephone Indus- Day in History gy, in which "you always oppose "the other nation) with all your might at all levels and in all ways." Another strategy is one in which the players "opp o s e (the other nation) where it matters and don't (oppose) where it doesn't (matter), and try to measure (their response (in pro- portio) to the threat." A third test studies "vacillating strategies — somet i m e s very hard, sometimes very soft." The experimenters so far have "found" that the vacillating strategy "is always very bad under essentially all circumstances." Partial co-operation betwe e n enmies so far has come most quickly when the experimenters matched two people with "hard line" strategies. "They (the hard line enemies) would very quickly see'that they could not get anything past the other fellow and the only chance to avoid a shattering defeat would be to come to some kind of tacit agreement, and say 'you work your side of the street and I will work my side of the street, and we can still fight, but I won't try to wipe you out if you do not try to wipe me out.' " •Ci <r it These studies are based on the belief by McNamara aides that there are practical ways to sim ulate the behavior of a nation in a laboratry. The aides adm i t readily that this kind of gaming is hazardous. For one thing they said, they find it "very difficult" to determine which scientists are trustworthy and which are only "articulate linguists." In essence, however, some of try. As the colleges and universities expand so do the communities in which they and their branches are located. This, too, means more business for the phone company, whether it be She Bell System or the 2,500 independent companies. Many of the latter serve the smaller :ommunities where small colleges are booming with the teenage population explosion. <r <r 0 In rapidly growing education institutions private automatic branch exchanges are being installed to serve dorms and faculty offices. Data transmission networks now link the several campuses of many college or universities. Lectures by phone from a dis- TODAY IN HISTORY By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Tuesday, June 15 the 166th day of 1965. There ar 199 days left in the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1215, the mos important document of English constitutional history, the Mag na Carta, was signed by King John at Runnymede. On this date In 1775, George Washingtor accepted command of the Conti nental Army. In 1916, the Democratic Na tional Convention nominatec Woodrow Wilson for president. In 1942, the U.S. Congress wa addressed by King George I of Greece. In 1945. the Allies announcec the capture of German Forelg Minister Joachim Von Ribben trop .in Hamburg. Ten years ago — The Philip pines agreed that Japan shoul pay 500 million dollars in Worl War II indemnities. Five years ago — Presiden Dwight D. Elsenhower calle off a visit to Japan after a vio lent anti-American demonstra tion in Tokyo. One year ago — The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that districts represented in state legislatures must be substantially equal in population. The National Whirligig By ANDREW TULLY WASHINGTON — Along about mid-November, kindly forward my mail to that third desert sle to the left out Galapagos way. Meg and Tony will be In town about then, and I refuse to suffer the nausea induced by the sight, sound—and smell—of Americans bowing and scraping to okers who beat the immigra- lon laws by giving their occupation as "royalty." Their formal names are Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon, and although they h a ve worked hard only at earning a reputation as a couple of international beatniks, they will be received by a certain preposterous segment of this Republic as folks of high distinction. It says n some small print somewhere that they are God's elect, elevated to their Imposing status by divine right. ft * * NEAT, GAUDY COUP — This s a device invented many centuries ago by a passel of loafers who wished to perpetuate their idleness and secure for themselves six square meals a day and exemption from good manners. They got together, lapped up some hooch, and announced heaven had decreed that henceforth they should run the world, and off with the heads of citizens who refused to buy their gold brick. Happily, several wars persuaded the masses that kings and their equally useless kin were human, after all, and on the whole a vicious lot. So they started liquidating rulers named Louis and Otto and Franz Joseph and Alfonso, until today there are only a few royal house left, including those penny- dreadful establish m e n t s in Greece and Monaco. Out of sheer boredom, British royalty periodically pays state visits to happier countries which set a good table and whose citizens can be counted on to tolerate the outlandish flummery thest deadbeats peddle. <r a * FRESH FROM MAYFAIR — Apparently Buckingham palace has drawn lots and decided It is Meg's and Tony's turn to tease the animals. They will come here fresh—if that is the word—from the dives of Mayfair and Soho, a royal couple which has shown its contempt for its subjects by a kind of sordid extravagance and by providing the daily meat and potatoes for juicy gossip. Both, of course, are imposters even in the strange realm of royalty. Snowdon is an exquisite dilettante who has loitered on the untidy fringes of what passes these days for the world of arts and letters. He's a photographer on the odd St. Swithin's Days when he works. * * * NOT EVEN ENGLISH—Meg, like her sister Queen Elizabeth and her surly brother in law, Philip, is not even English, but the descendant of some crazy and incestuous German kings imported a few hundred years ago to keep the Englishman in his place. The family name was Saxe-Coburg-Gotha until Meg's grandpaw, George V, changed it to Windsor during that bit of deadly nonsense known as World War I. But she still waves that old divine right, although Mama was a commoner and therefore, possibly, not quite as phony as royalty's run of the mill. I do not know what Meg and Tony expect to unearth in their investigation of the Ameri can scene, taut it's a shame they will be exposed only to the usual gaggle of simpering 'tea-party females and wrist - dang 1 ing males who always clutter up any royal visit. I know some folks in Texas and Massachusetts who could persuade them that an occasional day's work is good for the blood. It might even change it from blue to red. The Doctor Says By W. G. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Q—Is there any cure fpr facial neuralgia except injecting or cutting the nerve? A—Facial neuralgia, also known as tic douloureux and trigeminal neuralgia, is very painful. Various substances have been injected into the facial nerve to destroy it and of these boiling water is still the one most widely used. The injection of increasing doses of hista- rhine in the hip has met with some success. This works best Record of the Past 10 YEARS AGO— Temperatures: High 78, low 47 . . . .

Q—Do emotions affect the spleen as well as the adre n a 1 glands? A—Before the functions of the spleen were well understood it was supposed to be the seat of various emotions and so it has come to be synonym o u s with bad temper. It is now known to be one of the organs concerned with the production of red and white blood cells. Since it is not a gland of internal se- creation like the adrenals, emotions would not exert any appreciable effect on its function. Q—What causes fluid in the inner ear? Can it be cured? A—The inner ear or semi-circular canals are organs that help you recognize your position in space (not outer space) and Since fluid, the middle ear, which lies just inside your eardrum and is connected with your throat through the eustachian tube. Infection in the middle ear (otitis media) will cause fluid (pus) to form there. This can usually be cured with' penicillin and rarely requires puncturing the eardrum any more. Q—What is Tenuate? Is it harmful when used for a long time? A—Diethlypropion (tenuate) is given to suppress the appetite in persons who are overweight, especially if their weight is haying an adverse effect on their diabetes, pregnancy or heart disease. When too large a dose is given there may be some dry ness of the mouth. Q—Can worry cause a stroke? A—Not directly taut it can cause high blood pressure.
