POUR IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, 1RONWOOD, MICHIGAN TUESDAY, JULY 27, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "Tht Doily Globe is on independent newspaper, supporting what it believes fo be right and opposing what if 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 has been worked out with remarkable secrecy, but the large outlines are becoming known in advance oif 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 Ltondpn indicates that other provisions will greatly advantage the new regime of Col. Houari Boumedienue. Algerian government's royalty per metric ton of crude will go up 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 aye 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 get along even better with Col. Boumediennc. whose ideology is less heated. 'French aid to Algeria for 1965 comes to about $142.9 million, almost one-third lower than last year's but still a major source of Algerian income. Moreover, France pumps money into the Algerian economy in other ways. And she is bv far the biggest customer for Algerian wine, fruit, iron ore. and flour. Despite the almost eight years of dirty war, France still has great influence in Algeria beyond that of purse-holder. Algerian bread comes from French unemplovment 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 Algeria to $40 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 $22 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 $100 million at low interest for purchases from the Soviet Union and last year came through with another $127 million loan, mostly for a steel mill. Coominunist China held off until late 1963 and then, offered $50 milliion in credits. Thus the French have been and remain Algeria's principal guarantors. In the same way the most genuinely cordial welcome to Ics ovenmcnts du dix-nciivicme — as the Algerian press chastely refers to the Boumedienne coup of June 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 Sues. 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 re- .vponsive 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 n decided opinion about what should be done 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 ordinary 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 tin's belief, "experience suggests that outside purely military matters the belief is vastly exaggerated when it is not entirely false." Ordinarily, maintains Myrdal, no government has more knowledge about a foreign country than is generally available in the press end 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! for shrugging off responsibility for what the nation does 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 Jong 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 easily. Bliss Inadvertently Helps Enemies (Copyright 1989, King Feature* Syndicate. Inc.) By John Chamberlain 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 be- tvyeen 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" |n 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 •Biepublicaji party. This is what should not be lost on Ray Bliss. ' ' "MS*. The recent election of conservative Tom Van Sickle, a 27-year-old state senator from Kansas, to head the young Republicans is demonstration enough that the younger element of the Republican party is not predominantly "eastern" or "liberal." 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, whether 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-parrv" 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. There Are All Kinds of Orbits The Washington Scene By RAY CROMLEY WASHINGTON — (NEA) — Syngman Rhee was a heroic revolutionary patriot. His raw courage and resolution brought a country through its first faltering years safe from internal splintering and from getting enmeshed in communism. But he was unable to make the shift to a stable peacetime democracy. Perhaps the dual role was too much to ask of one man. My own contact with Rhee came in the early days of the newly independent South Korea at the end of World War II. He had some of the imperiousness of Charles de Gaulle. He ruled with an iron hand. American officers and officials in Seoul who attempted to deal with him on any but his own terms came away muttering under their breath. They called him a stubborn old man. said of Diem in South Viet Nam—that he was a Mandarin, a believer in one-man rule, that other officials were figureheads. Most of all it was said that Rhee's police wer vicious, brutal men used to keep the populace in line politically. Maybe so, but on one occasion in this early period, I had myself locked inside a dirty local Korean jail and the guards kept away so they couldn't hear my questions to the prisoners or what they told me. There was no witness present, not even an interpreter. (We spoke in Japanese, then universally understood in Korea). The prisoners talked strongly of mistreatment. Some complained about the way t h e y'd been arrested, the slowness of being brought to trial, the bad food and of being pushed around. The treatment they complained of was certainly not good. But It was no worse than In the average Asian prison. Rhee's life perhaps Illustrates one thing—that sometimes there is the right man for a key role at a certain critical period of history. If he Isn't best for a later time, this doesn't make him any the less a great man.

This is regarded as probably temporary. businessmen who deal in goods 1 A dimmer view of the future AndThe'wasT But"he held" Southi and dollars with other nations of exports is taken by Fortune By ANDREW TULLY WASHINGTON — At the White House the other day, Press Secretary Bill Movers noted that Arthur Goldberg, who had just been named United Nations Ambassador, "has always been Interested In international affairs." "Sure," quipped a newsman, "That's why Kennedy named him to the Supreme Curt." Moyers was doing his job, of course, which was to picture Goldberg as a foreign affairs scholar. Perhaps he is, but the quality that makes his appointment a stroke of Johnsonian genius is that Arthur Goldberg Is a tough cookie who believes in the UN. * * « A MINORITY-ORIENTED ~ Goldberg's toughness, a heritage from his boyhood In a Jewish slum In Chicago, was h 1 s chief recommendation to President Johnson. The Pre s 1 d e nt believes In the UN, too, but he has come to realize that the United States needs a UN representative who can hit In the clinches. This is not to disparage Adlai Stevenson, bless his noble heart, who did very • well in that department after a slow start, but only to emphasize a comlng-to-age in the White House In respect to the international peach organization. More so than in any time In its 20-year history, the UN is threatened with a takeover by the Communist nations and their' "non-aligned" allies. Whenever they wish, the Soviets can make a majority with these so-called j neutrals and run the show. The U.S. and its Free World friends no longer control the votes; indeed, for the first! time, America is a member of the UN minority. O ft ft THREE-FISTED FIGHTER— Other good men were mentioned for the UN job: Senator Fulbright of Arkansas, Sena tor Sparkman of Alabama, Secretary of State Dean Rusk, Under Secretary of State Ball. But Goldberg was chosen because he Is a tough cookie who comes equipped with brass knuckles and the knowledge that there are times when a well-placed knee Is worth a hundred left Jabs. Arthur Goldberg Is an I n - tellectual of impeccable credentials, but he was a tough Secretary of Labor who saw his duty as the p r e v e ntlon of costly strikes and waded Into labor- management disputes with, a s one observer put It, "all three fists flying." Before that, as a brilliant labor lawyer, he won a court ruling that made pensions a collective barg a 1 n Ing Item, and helped create the AFL-CIO. ft ft < NO FANCY PANTS — He is said to have been unpopular with his colleagues on the Supreme Court, which would be to his credit. Any Supreme Court is a mlsh-mash of petty p r o- tocol and sly conventions d e signed to protect a phony dignity. Goldberg was reputed to be aggressive and argumentative, a man who seldom troubled to be polite when pursuing a point. He may have been wrong at times, but he was always provacatlve and he always made the Court do some thinking, which was a plus for the citizenry. Arthur Goldberg would be the first to scoff at the poetic justice which finds him, a son of Russia n-Jewlsh parents, a s- signed to duel the Moscow monolith. He is not a man diverted by such romantic jazz. Nevertheless, the drama is pleasant cause it gives us a chance to show the world that the old melting pot is still operating. enth annual picnic in conjunction with its forty-third anniversary next Sunday at Upson park Former students and graduates of the University of Wisconsin of Gogeblc and Iron Count! e s are invited to attend an alumni picnic to be held at Schomb erg park on Tuesday, July 31.

Rhee was a rigid man with one objective—an independe n t, unified, stable Korea. He devoted his whole life to that aim. He first went to jail for his beliefs in the 1890's for his part in demonstrations urging reforms on the Korean monarchy. The Japanese had barely settled in as rulers of Korea when Rhee was in trouble again. He annoyed the Americans because of his vehement insistence on a march to the Yalu and no peace talks.
