FOU* fRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN THURSDAY, JULY 29, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "The Daily Globe 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 Publisher, 1927-1964. Mrs. Linwood I. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher The Greek Crisis It is both unpleasant and probably unfair that supporters of George Pupandroou. the ousted premier of Greece, should shout slogans altaekina; President Johnson and the North Atlantic Treatv Organization. But the tumult is a valuable reminder that something more than a domestic political crisis is involved. Papnndreou. who became premier in November 1963 after an upset election victory, was fired by King Gonstantine II on July .15. The central issue was Papandreou's demand that the King dismiss the Minister of National Defense, Papandreou proposed to take over the portfolio. The former premier's son, Andreas Papancl- rcous. A former American citizen and a member of parliament, has been accused of and lias denied being "mixed up" in some wav with a secret left-wing group in the Greek army. The elder Papandreou is supposed to have wauled to purge another, right-wing group in the army. King Constantine replaced Papandreou with George Athanassiades-Novas. an elderly poet and fellow member of the Center Union party. Parliament is about to vote on whether the new premier will stay in power. Papandreou predicts a popular revolt if Athanassiacles-Nova should win the confidence vote. If he does not, the alternatives arc new elections or Papan- dreou's return to office at Constantino's summoning. Novas has the implicit support of the NATO powers. An American observer puts it tin's way: "They don't want Papandreou. They believe he is too soft in his dealings with the left, dislike his efforts to build trade with the Soviet bloc, and criticize him for having had an inefficient regime during his 17 months in office/' Street demonstrations have made clear that Fapandreou is favored by the Greek working class. Despite Papandreou's legitimate claim to be an anti-Communist much of the tumult it, organized and led. unfortunately, by identifiable leftists. Also involved in the present dispute is a question of constitntionalitv. Papandreou holds that the King in firing him overstepped the powers of the monarchy. Four plebiscites have bc*cu held in Greece in this century on the question of "Monarchy or Republic." Constitutional monarchy has won out on three occasions, most recently in 1946. when King George TI was recalled to the throne after voluntary exile during World War II. But street crowds now denounce Queen Mother Frederika. who is held to be influencing Constantine. The United States has an investment of treasure and principle in Greece. Postwar aid totals more than S3 billion and is greatly responsible for a 74 per cent increase in gross national product in the 1950s. And it was the Truman Doctrine of militarily underwriting Greece and Turkey that stopped the westward encroachment of communism in Europe. There remains a considerable reservoir of goodwill for the United States in Greece. The younger Papandreou in his campaign for par- liament said he found his "Americanness" a "fantastic benefit" among the voters. The clash between his 77-year-old father, the "old fox" of Greek politics, and the strong-willed 23- year-okl King Constantine can only be an embarrassment to Americans who wish for Greece stability and equilibrium. Congress Takes Look at Itself Tn the midst of one of the most crowded schedules of anv peacetime Congress, that body found time to begin major examination of its organization and operation—the first in 20 years and only the second in its historv. This was the Joint Committee on the Organization of the Congress, set up in May ol this year. Like its counterpart in 1945, the committee is expected to come up -with B list ol much-needed reforms. None of them, however, according to one lawmaker, will be verv fundamental or far-reaching. The reason, charges Sen. Joseph S. Clark. Democrat from Pennsylvania, is that the present committee is laboring under the same prohibition as its predecessor: It may not recommend reforms regarding the rules, parliamentary procedures, practices or precedents of either house. "Trying to reform the Congress without revising and modernizing its rules and procedures," says Clark, "is like trving to cure a patient ill with appendicitis without operating. It cannot be done." Some kind of drastic surgery is needed, he says, if Congress is to regain the capacity for prompt and effective action it must have to meet the challengers of the modern world. The senator sees a world-wide historic trend, marked by the progressive gravitation of governmental power and initiative away from legislative into executive branches. The American development of this tread has witnessed the increasingly negative role of Congress and the impairment of its power to act postiviely. At the present time, the productivity of Congress is so high that we tend to ignore the creakings and groanings in its internal machinery, he says. But this good record is due chiefly to two factors: A President whose skills in dealing with Congress are unprecedented, and the overwhelming Democratic majorities in both houses resulting from the Goldwater debacle. In Clark's view, it is precisely because of these two factors that the time for congressional reform is now, lest the legislative branch decline into being nothing more than a rubber stamp or, at the opposite extreme, a roadblock. Considering how many kids murder the language, we wonder why they're called grammar schools. To forge ahead is a worthy ambition as long as it's not done on checks. Shutting off the alarm clock is the latest way to get to work. Clash Between Beauty, Comfort (Copyright 1985, Kln| future* Syndicate. In*.I By lohn Chamberlain Both major political parties seem to have agreed on the desirability of a Great Society, federally supported and socially secured by pay-roll check-offs. So this should bring an end to controversy. The truth of the matter, however, is that controversy is only beginning. For one thing, there is going to be a big struggle over whether the Great Society should exist on a beauty standard or a comfort standard. The beauty standard people are now having their innings. They want to abolish overhead transmission wires in the green countryside, They are against the use of coal and oil to make electric power, for coal and oil create noxious fumes that pollute the atmosphere to the point where merely breathing in New York or Chicago for 24 hours is equivalent to smoking two packs of cigarets a day. They want to keep factories from dumping in streams, and they want to pump the dirtv water out of Lake Erie and fill the place up again with clean water that will support self-respecting fish. Well, this columnist has nothing against the beauty standard. He would like to live in a world in which everything looks like the Grand Tetons or the gardens at Versailles. But life is a compromise and there are points where the beauty standard and the comfort standard clash head-on. I became acutely aware of this the other day when I took some problems to a friend who works for a big power company. He was in a lugubrious "you can't win'' mood. A little old lady in tennis shoes had scarified him for wanting to run some high-tension wires across the landscape in full view of her house. He tried to explain to the little old Udy that the business of putting those wires underground from a power plant at the coal mine moudi to the big cities of the East Coast would make the land look like a strip mine operation for months on end and would raise the cost of electricity to the point where people would have to go back to candles and coal oil lamps, Would the little old lady like that? Thinking of a compromise that might suit the little old lady, my friend said the beauty criterion might be met if electricity were to be generated in cities by atomic power. Oh, . no, said the little old lady; that would be too dangerous, and besides, where are you going to dump all the radioactive wastes?' And coal and oil burned in the city would give everybody emphysema. At this point my power company friend thought we might all be better off if we were to go back to the cave. Only there aren't enough caves to go around. Most of us want beauty without going back to the clays of the coal oil lamp, which was- i.'t so beautiful, after all. The fact that the beauty standard quarrels with the comfort standard in everyone of us in varying degrees means the beginnings of a new politics, not the cessation of all politics Oh, we are going to see some bitter fights! Those chemical companies that pollute the streams make things which people want. Can we afford to add the cost of clear streams into rhe price of chemicals? How much are Cleveland and Toledo willing to pay for purging Lake Erie? If anyone can give us a line on problems like these, we'll begin to know something about the contours of phase two cf the Great Society. It's too bad that the issue ot beauty versus comfort is going to become bone and tissue ol our politics. For there is no guarantee that our rulers will be adepts of the fine arts or respecters of the right of individuals to form their own tastes. It is said that Augustus Caesar found Rome a city of brick and left it a city of marble. But the Romans who came after Augustus felt themselves stifled by the sterile pomp of an officially beautified capital. Per icles spent A lot of money on beautifying .'.ncient Athens. But Pericles drained the individual Athenians of their will, and what happened to Greece after his passing is a lesson tor all of us. As for me, I'd like to see some improvement in the small society. I wish the lout who used Jus knife to girdle one of my trees the other day would go back to school and study something about tree physiology How are you going to get a Great Society in a world full of ghouls? way to be a presidential candidate evidently is to appear not ation for a presidential nomina- o be one.

In a move that is at least suspicious, the Pharmaceutic a 1 Manufacturers A s s o c 1 a t Ion (PMA) and 41 individual drug companies are contesting in the courts a Pood and Drug Administration demand for periodic reports on all drugs cleared before a new and more stringent law was enacted in 1982. The druggists claim the check is unnecessary and expensive. Weil, Mrs. Balderdash, it may be expensive but I do not buy the proposition that any examination of medicines used on human beings is unnecessary. There have been too many 1 instances in this miracle drug era of patients dying quite dead because they took the wrong drug. These deaths, of course, have caused the drug industry considerable anguish, but its expressions of sympathy have not brought the victims back to life. <T TV ft HOLDING BACK FACTS — Now the FDA has screened 1,029 drugs originally cleared under the old law and has determined that It needs reports on the safety of 280 of them.

I do not believe proper testing will bankrupt the drug Industry. Most of Us little pills command whopping prices, and Its business is on a cash-and-carry basis which eliminates poor credit risks. Happily for the pillpushers, a man does not haggle over the price when the doc tells him he needs a drug to stay alive. Somebody should, though-possibly the FDA or some trust- busting agency. A friend who fortunately has made his pile is spending $40 a month on pills deemed necessary to his c o n tinned good health after a bladder operation. A prescriptio n for anything stronger than a s- plrln these days will set the patient back a small bundle, and in too many cases the cost of drugs is higher than the doctor's fee. * * * WANTS ON-JOB I N SPEC- TIONS But what I want ident Eisenhower was 66 when re-elected in 1956. settlement This is pretty high-handed ac- n . , Some newspaper reports spoke ; tlon by an lndustry wnose pro . of Mr. Rockefeller s declaration ; d uct is a llfe-and-death matter ^television on Sunday as _ a i for its customers.

Under the present syst « m , the FDA is forced to rely primarily on the firms themselves for such monitoring, since FDA inspectors visit the average drug house only once every two years. Self-policing In industry is always more desirable, o'f course, but there have been hints that the drug industry's cops are too casual for the public's comfort.

Major companies in (Copyright, 1965, New York' these flelds arc reporting peak production and sales. And most of them are flexing their profits. With few exceptions, the basic suppliers to American industry are reporting impressive gains in net income in the second quarter of 1965 compared with the like period of 1964. This maintains the spread that brightened the first three months of this year. In the three months just ended steel companies translated record shipments into profit ing of a visit to Washington by ex-President William Howard Taft on May 16, 1916, and excerpts from the dispatch follow: "Realizing the extraordinary sentiment for a man who has forces centered on a tough little group of young men in their twenties.

But in the not-far-distant future, it may fall to him to remove the doubts of skeptical Republicans as to whethe'- or not Justice Hughes should accept if nominated. If the man who put Hughes on the bench thinks the justice ought to heed the call of higher duty, that certainly should have great weight with the justice himself." The Republican Party in 1916 had experienced the worst split in its nistory. For, unlike 1964 when the split was merely a defection from support of Senator Goldwater by some leading Republicans and no corresponding pledge to vote the Democratic presidential nominee, there had been ui 1912 a third party under former President Theodore Roosevelt which actually polled more votes than the regular Republican nominee, William Howard Taft. Mr. Hughes in 1916 seemed to be the best possible harmonizer of discordant ments in the party. e 1 e- Governor Rockefeller has stated that h'.- plans to be a harmoniz- er. He speaks of the "scars" of the 1964 campaing and the necessity of healing them. He recognizes, by implication, that the Qoldwater block has to be given at least respectful treatment in party councils, for it does represent a sizeable number of Republican votes. There is more, however, to Mr. Rockefeller's strategy than the uniting of his party for the next presidential contest in barricades and wait for an attack. Each day some of his v i 1 lagers would go out and nose around among their relati v e s and friends in neighboring hamlets and towns. They listened to eyes open for strangers and for the relatives of villagers they knew had joined the Reds, and if they found them, engaged them in idle conversation. They picked up rumors, noticed little things like which young me n sympathetic to the Viet Cong were away. By adding the bits and pieces together, this hamlet chief kept track of where the Viet Cong were operating and what they were planning next. He almost always knew when the V.C. were planning to raid his hamlet and how they would attack. Quietly his men would set up ambushes. "You know," he told us. "the V.C. are suckers for ambushes. You'd think with all their ambushing they'd know better. But Ironwood Daily Globe Published evenings, except Sundaya by Globe Publishing Company, 118 E McLeod Ave.. Ironwood, Michigan.

"Note -— He booby trapped the possible invasion paths h e didn't have the manpower to cover with his ambushes.) The moral of this tale is simple. There are in South Viet Nam tens of thousands of able men who fought as Viet Minh in the successful guerrilla wars against the French. Many of these men, still young, were officers in Ho's armies. Moving around South Viet Nam, a reporter meets men who served as captains, majors and even colonels in Ho's Viet Minh. One day, while having lunch with several Vietnamese newspapermen, one disclosed he'd been chief of staff of one of Ho's armies in northern Laos years ago These men are loyal Vietnamese. They're not Communists. They were fighting as nationalists against the French and quit after South Viet Nam was set up or when, they d i s- covered the Reds wanted to control the country. These men know Ho's strategy and tactics. They're old hands at guerrilla fighting. Few are being used in this war In positions of responsibility. Yet who could better outwit the Viet Cong? There are some men now working in the Pentagon o n ways to shake out the rigidity in the Vietnamese army system that effectively bars the use of these men. But don't count on a quick solution.

Producers of nonferrous metals and their products also have been prospering on increased demand, fed both by the business boom and war threats. Kcnnecott Copper reports second quarter profits of 27.9 million against $21.5 million a year ago; Magma Copper $4.6 million against $4.5 million. Aluminum Co. of America compares a $22.4 million second quarter with a year ago figure of $16.9 million. Kaiser Aluminum & Chemical reports $ll million this year against $7.5 million last. And Reynolds Metals has a $15-milllon second quarter this year against a $9- mlllion one in 1964. Oil profits have been flowing freely, thanks to steadily growing civilian and military use. Ahead this April-June quarter over last year are: Gulf Oil, $104 million, up $13 million over the year ago figure; Socony Mobil, $78 million, up by $7.5 million; Shell, 60.4 million, up by 13.8 million; Indiana Standard, $49.4 million, up by $5.6 million; Phillips, 34 million, up by $3.5 million; Cities Service, $24.2 million, up by 7.4 million or 43 per cent; Sun Oil, 20 million, up by $5 million; Sinclair, $17 million, up by $7.6 million. Most chemicals show second quarter gains this year. But the largest, Du Pont, shorn of its GM stock dividends now, trails by $2.39 a share In 1965 against $2.81 a year ago. Ahead are: Union Carbide, with $57 million in this year's second quarter against $45 million in 1964; Monsanto, $38.8 million against $35.3 million; Dow, 30 million against $27.7 million) Allied $24 million against $23 million; Olin Ma- thleson, 16 million against $13.5 million. Will the gains continue the rest of the year? Steel companies say even some slackening couldn't spoil 1965's final figures. Oil concerns see conditions still Improving. Chemicals express confidence in the rest of the year. Viet Nam holds uncertainties but few threats for most companies — these suppliers to civil- Ian industry also service the military.
