FOUR IRONWOOD DAILY C7LOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN TUESDAY, JULY 27, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "Tht 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 Franco-Algerian Bargain The new Franco-Algerian bargain on profit- sharing and joint exploitation of the oil of the Sahara lias born worked out \vith remarkable secrecy, but the lan;c outlines are becoming known in advance of the actual signing. The profit distribution is expected to be along the 75-25 percentage split indicated in most new Middle East deals, with Algeria getting the pull. The usually well informed Economist of London indicates that other provisions will greatlv advantage the new regime of Col. llonari Boumedienne. The Algerian government's royalty per metric ton of crude will go un about 75 per cent. Presumably the rise will be passed along to the French consumer, who already buys the most expensive gasoline in Europe. American companies such as Sinclair and Phillips arc not immediate parties to the deal, but their own arrangements are almost certain to be renegotiated in time. For an ousted proprietor. France got along well enough with the Algeria of Ben Bella, and the indications are that she will set along even better with Col. Boumedienne. whose ideology is less heated. French aid to Algeria for 1965 comes to about 8142.9 million, almost one-third lower than last year's but still a major source of Algerian income. Moreover, France pumps nionev into the Algerian ecoiiomv in other ways. And she is bv far Hie biggest customer lor Algerian wine, fruit, iron ore. and flour. Despite the almost eight years of dirty war. France still has great influence in Algeria be- vond that of purse-holder. Algerian bread comes from French unemployment benefits— and American wheat. In addition to native languages, Algerians speak French as a matter of course: they have been trained in French methods. The United States has limited its aid to Al- ceria to 840 millioin in Public Law 480 surplus foods. We have also sent physicians and technicians and supported a ?1 million rural development program. Britain has financed a S?.2 million pulp mill. West Germany reconstructed the port of Bone, but Ben Bella then sacrificed German help to the altar of Arab solidarity. The Russians loaned Ben Bella 8100 million at low interest for purchases from the Soviet Union and last year came through with another $127 million loan, mostly tor a steel mill. Coommunist China held off until late 1963 and then, offered S50 milliion in credits. Thus the French have been and remain Algeria's principal guarantors. In the same way the most genuinely cordial welcome to /c.v cvcnmculs chi dix-ncuvicine — as the Algerian press chastely refers to the Boumedienne coup of ]une 19 — came from the government of France. All this is not Gallic altruism. France is paying for her Algerian oil with new francs, thus maintaining her highly favorable balance of foreign exchange. The French, who heavily depend upon hydro-carbon sources of energy, are guaranteed a steady supply. They have taken out an insurance policy against a recurrence of gasoline rationing a la Suez. Much more important, France is jealous of her influence throughout her former empire. France is drawing Algeria to her side with strands less chafing than the old colonial ties but scarcely less binding. Everyone in Know About Viet Nam Demands and pleas that the government "tell the truth about Viet Nam" strike a responsive chord among many Americans, whether they are voiced by persons who oppose the administration's actions or by those who support them. Although most of us have a decided opinion about what should be clone in matters of domestic concern, when it comes to foreign affairs we are usually more ready to abdicate our own judgment and look to the government experts for answers, even while not quite trusting them. This was pointed out recently by Gunnar Myrdal, an astute Swedish observer of the American scene. Writing in the New York Times Magazine, he gives as the reason the fact that the or- dinarv citizen "tends to assume that the government has information of a secret nature, not available to the general public." While it may be to the tactical advantage of government officials to maintain this belief, "experience suggests that outside purely military matters the belief is vastly exaggerated when it is not entirely false." Ordinarilv. maintains Myrdal, no government has more knowledge about a foreign country than is generally available in the press ?nd published literature. If so, this carries two significant implications—one general and the other .particular- for all of us: In general, it means there can be no excuse 1 for shrugging off responsibility for what the nation docs in the world arena on the grounds, that we cannot possibly know—or learn—as much about the issues as the men who have to make the decisions. In the particular issue of Viet Nam. it means that despite any fond hopes, the government possesses no secret knowledge but for the revelation of which we could arrive at a quick and easy solution to the war there. "The truth about Viet Nam" is as evident to the ordinary citizen as it is to the man in the White House. It is that the Communists want to swallow up South Viet Nam and we intend to stop them from doing it. It is that we face a long and increasingly costly struggle, ,with no certain prospect of victory or even some kind of peace that is neither victory nor defeat. There are no hidden truths that will make these obvious truths go away. Carrying the mortgage on a dream house can become a nightmare. When a gal gets to a certain age, she has to be careful of wolves — they scare so easilv. Bliss Inadvertently Helps Enemies (Copyright 1869, King Feature! SynrticaU. Inc.) By lohn Chamberlain t It's too bad that Ray Bliss, chairman of the Republican National Committee, doesn't pay more attention to the organizing troubles of some of the more responsible free-wheeling political organizations which he has denounced as "splinter groups." He might discover that if he ever managed to do away with such conservative societies as Barry Goldwater's Free Society Association, the American Conservative Union, and Americans for Constitutional Action, he would shortly find that he had set in motion a polarizing process that would have the disastrous result of delivering many earnest citizens into the hands of those who are really trying to promote a third party. The other day I listened to a colloquy between a couple of organizers for one of the associations that has incurred Ray Bliss's specific displeasure. The first organizer told ruefully of the troubles he was having with members of far-out groups who came to hector him and otherwise disrupt his meetings. He said he had gained the impression that the John Birch Society, for instance, was growing by leaps and bounds, which could ultimately mean a concentration of independent power considerably to the right of what Goldwater has represented in the Republican party. The second organizer, who happens to come from Indianapolis, Indiana, expressed some surprise at the revelations of the first. "We don't have your troubles in Indianapolis," he said. "This is probably because we have a lot of established conservative groups, such as the local Americans for Conservative Action. They've pre-empted the field, and the Birch Society can't make much headway against them." In short, where there are conservative groups which do not believe that everything that has happened in the past thirty years is explained by a Communist conspiracy, the more extreme rightists do not succeed in capturing the conservative movement. The "middle right" keeps the spectrum in order, and prevents a modern bull moose shattering of the Republican part}'. This is what should not be lost ou Ray Bliss.

But, since Van Sickle was not an acceptable candidate to the Young Republicans of California, who are a really "way out" group, his victory was hardly a manifestation of any "right-wing radicalism." It was simply a victory for a "pro" who exhibits a lot of common sense. The fact is that most of the organizations over which the "eastern" Republicans sadly shake their heads, whethei they are younger groups such as Young Americans for Freedom or associations with no fixed age limits such as the Free Society Association or the American Conservative Union, are moderating influences within the conservative spectrum. They are needed to keep many decent citizens from being pushed into disruptive third party schemes out of a feeling of frustration. Actually Ray Bliss needs them more than they need him. He should take warning from the fact that a new organization, United Republicans of Ohio, has just been set up in his own back yard. Once again, let me say, as 1 have said in previous columns, that the Democrats have shown far more more sense than the Republicans in the matter of handling "extra-party" organizations. The Democratic National Committee, far from frowning on "splinters," goes out of its way to encourage any association that wants to work with the party. It has even subsidized certain "extra-partv" groups, either directly or indirectly, Arthur Larson's National Committee for Civic responsibility received support from it last autumn, and the leftist fact-gathering organization known as Group Research has had financial help from it. The Democrats, of course, never, never use the word "splinter" when they talk about such valuable auxiliaries as Group Research or Americans for Democratic Action; they just smile and look wise. patriots, received considerable, j demand in West Europe, as its In 1866, after many heart- ] committed sins, he will be for- unwitting, U.
