rout IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN SATURDAY, JULY 31,1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "Tht Daily Glob* 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 Supersonic Financing j An important decision on the financing of the American supersonic commercial airliner is 'hwaited. When President Johnson on July 1 Announced that ~the program would be accelerated, the part covering development costs Was vague. The President said he would request from Congress $140 million to cover the government's part of the cost for the 18 rnonths beginning Aug. 1. ' . The Federal Aviation A^encv on the following day announced a $2 million increase in July research contracts. FAA contracts with the four manufacturers involved with the supersonic airliner (SST) program called for total spending of more than $5.6 million for July, 82 million higher than Mie monthly level of funding over the past year. Lockheed and Boeing under the new con- fa acts were to receive $1.1 million for airframe .development in July. They would spend $375.000 of their own money. General Electric and Pratt & Whilnev were to receive for the month slightly over $] million. The tw.o companies would spend $333.000 of their own money. Contracts were to be renewed on a month-to- month basis. : These contracts were in line with the previous 75-25 percentage cost-sharing, with the government of course bearing the heavier load. FAA when questioned by Editorial Research Reports on July 28 said Hiat no decision has been made on cost-sharing after Aug. 1. ' President Johnson's acceleration of the SST program disappointed enthusiasts and critics alike. Aviation Week and Space Technology, the authoritative trade publication, warned that the development scheme was being "flogged to death with feathers" Opponents -had hoped that the SST would be given a decent burial. The President noted that his stepped-up program was a "threefold increase in the amount of funds we are spending." The acceleration, he said, was "clearly justified by the progress that has been made over the last four years and, particularly that made over the last several months." The Washington Post expressed its belief that: "The President has taken the moderate and . . ._wise course" but that it was uncomfortable "to think that the chief beneficiary of government-financed research and development which may eventually cost 81 billion in private industry which gets the contract to manufacture the plane." (Other estimates put the eventual costs as high as $2 billion.) But the newspaper said that the "hard facts" were that the four conipanies, even together, "just don't have that much money to spend on research." '. In reply to the Post editorial, Claude Witze, senior editor of Air Force and Space Digest, pointed out that private industry was sharing the SST. risk, and added his belief that President Johnson "obviously thinks you are wrong and that the chief beneficiary will be the United States of America." . : If the many technological problems still ahead are solved, the prestige benefits to the United States are obvious. This country is in effect engaged in a race with France and Britain, who are developing the Concorde sup* ersonic transport, and the Russians, who are working on the TU-144. Business Week reports »hat the British and France think they already have a head start with the needle-nosed Concorde. The advantages in terms of general prosperity for the United States to become supersonic transport builders to the world are clear, as are the profit potentials for the aviation companies. There remains, of course, the question of whether the price is too high to pay. Nice to Know You, Peggy Have you noticed the increasing use of name lags by the people who serve the public? You know your cute little waitress is Peggy because she tells you so on her uniform. The salesgirl in the drug store is Florence and the lady who shows you the latest in housewares is Mrs. Heilman. The garage mechanic is Butch, as you can plainly see by his coveralls. The furnace repairman is Joe and the laundryman is Alexander—a more formal type This is a distinct step forward in mass communications and it is interesting to speculate on how far it may go. Will the day come when the austere bank- president gaily flaunts the name "Smitty" on his well-tailored jacket? Will His Honor the judge sternly impose sentence in somber robes emblazoned with "Mac"? Can a U.S. senator deliver quite the same punch as he takes the floor to denounce the frivolities of the-other party if he sports"ShOrty" on his chest? It is probable that somewhere along the line the time-honored business card may continue to implement introductions in certain professions. But for thousands of Americans the name teg is not only informative but also a definite step toward warmer, friendlier relations with the customer. And who can argue against a trend like that? So fill 'er up with premium will ya, Buddy? Great; name you have there. Happens to be the same as mine! Moment of Decision Wood That Isn't Man may be able to make a treje, but thanks to his atomic and chemical wizardry, the wood from treei is being turned into something better than Mother Nature was ever able to produce. A new process, developed by West Virginia University under contract with the Atomic Energy Commission, involves impregnating wood with a liquid plastic, then subjecting it to radiation. The result is an immensely tough but easily worked wood-plastic combination which retains the natural beauty and appearance of the'original wood. The AEG has just issued an invitation to wood products companies to submit samples of wood, which will be custom-processed at no charge and which they can then fabricate into finished products for testing. The new wood is a marvel now. In a few years it will be a commonplace in our homes and stores and offices. Hay fever is the most common allergy disease, a distinction not 1o be sneezed at. World Food Shortages WASHINGTON-Famine on a wide scale in the world's underdeveloped regions appears unavoidable if the poor nations do not start producing food as fast as they produce people. Food-short countries in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America already are on the threshold of starvation. They have managed to stave off disaster so far because of huge grain shipments from the United States and a few other food-surplus countries. j Yet the vast output of American farms cannot avert calamity indefinitely if the world's population continues to soar at the present rlates. According to United Nations data, the present world population of 3.3 billion will have doubled by the year 2000. The growth, .moreover, will occur mainly in the underdeveloped nations where the masses even now live in what can be described as a state of Conditioned starvation. i There are 180,000 new mouths to be fed csvery day—65 million every year. By 1975, food supplies will need to have risen by more than 35 per cent merely to sustain people at today's unsatisfactory diet levels. Some economists believe that famine conditions will emerge with- jb.the next five years unless emergency programs to increase the yield of land already un- qer cultivation are launched at once in the food- deficit nations. This conclusion is expected to J>e underscored in a report on the world situation to be submitted in the near future by & U.S. government interdepartmental task ijorce. The report also may propose another increase in the Food for Peace program. Some 1.7 ; -tylljpn worth of American food surpluses re now shipped abroad annually under this jrogram, A njajor expansion of the Food for Peace rograih would appear to offer an easy and ramatic solution of some of the current agri- ultural problems At one stroke U.S. farm sur- luses .wpuld disappear and hunger would be t least momentarily relieved. But the solution is not as simple as that. America's bounty is not inexuastible. Even if it were, problems of transportation and distribution might defeat the effort to feed hungry people everywhere. At one time last spring 27 ships containing grain were lined up outside Bombay harbor awaiting unloading while many Indians in the interior were going hungry. Some experts argue that food-aid programs onl delay the day of reckoning. Food aid has permitted governments of food-deficit countries to let serious agricultural and population problems ride. And Indian economist recently contended that heavy imports of U.S. food grains had been used to artificially depress grain prices, thus discouraging domestic production and creating a still greater need for food imports. American officials are unlikely in any case to accept the classic solution for food-popu lation imbalance. In Ben Jonson's words. "Famine ends famine." No famine since the end of World War II, whether in a country friendly to the United States or in a country not friendly, has been ignored by Washington or the American people. But American planners may place one condition on stepped-up food shipments abroad. Recipient countries may be required to increase food production on their own land. Most of the land that can be farmed economically already is in production. Any increase in yield, therefore, will have to come from more intensive cultivation and more generous use of fertilizer. This means that the governments of the poor countries will have to increase public investment in agriculture and abandon ambitious industrialization programs. Food production and birth control will have to be given top priority, even to the neglect of other desirable public programs. It is becoming clearer every day that the hungry nations have little time left to come to grips with their problems of. excess people and deficient food resources. MEA" Today in National Affairs The International Whirligig By ANDREW TULLT WASHINGTON, — It Js nice to know that our spy outfit — the Central Intelligence Agency — Is in the news again, with both the Soviet Union and Egypt growling complaints about American cloak-and-dagger activity In their back alleys. That old charmer, President Gamal Nasser, claims that a political attache at our Cairo embassy actually Is a CIA spy who .bought information from an Egyptian newspap e r editor. And Pravda has officially admitted the existence of an anti-Communist underground in Russia owned and operated by the CIA. ciA, of course, does not like to make headlines except when it has carried off some coup, but stories like those emanating from Cairo and Moscow are good for the average American's morale. They let him know CIA Is busy In the department Communism's conspiratorial empire. The document was the secret speech delivered Khrushchev at the of dirty tricks, a most sary weapon In the Cold War. Since CIA spends upwards to a by Nlklta 20th Party Congress In Moscow In 1956 when he put the skids to Joe Stalin's memory. Khrushchev set out to keep the speech a secret because he decided 11 would be unwise to let Its full Impact be felt throughout the world. His plan was to give the new policy to the world's Communist faithful a little at a time. By carefully Issued statements and policy switches, he hoped to accomplish Stalin's posthumous downfall by d e • grees. ft » * MANY YEARS AT WORK But CIA got Its hands on th« speech through a defector within the Politburo who had b e come disenchanted when he was passed over the promotion several years earlier.

Now President Johnson has selected Abe Fortas—his personal friend of long stand i n g who has never had a day's experience on the bench—to be one of the nine justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. This is in line with the unfortunate trend of the past several years. Other presidents besides Mr. Johnson, Republican as well as Democratic, have appointed to the Supreme Court political associates or partisan supporters with a controversial background. /* a * Just what criteria dp presidents use in making appointments to the Supreme Court? They sometimes look for outstanding lawyr ers rather than experie need judges, but often there are political factors involved. Occasionally a member of the Senate with a legal background is appointed, and gone to the several men have 'Supreme Court from congress or from the cabinet. Every now and then a U.S. attorney general or solicitor-general in the Department of Justice has won promotion to the Su preme Court. Some of these appointees have made a fine record, and it is possible that Mr Fortas may turn out to be i well-balanced and falr-rnm d e d justice who is able to forget his early espousal of "left-wi n g' causes that made him a controversial figure in the "new deal.' He is only 55 today and has t long period of time ahead in which to adjust his thinking to Judicial doctrines, o a a Men in the political world however, are not inclined to abandon their views when they ascend to the bench. As justices they do not usually In their de clslons forsake their passions or preconceived' ideologies. Justice Douglas is as much an outspok en liberal today as he was "New Deal" days. On the other hand, Justice Black, an Alaba man who was exposed after his appointment as having once been a member of the Ku Klux Klan has never shown the slight e s sympathy for the objectives o that secret cult. But it would be easier for Justices to rid themselves of any previous political prejudices o~ partisanship If they could serve a few years in the Supr e m e Court of a state or in an appeals court of the federal judl clary before being selected for appointment to the Supre m e Court of the United States. 660 This correspondent, discussini the prevalent indifference to thi need for men of judicial experl ence or service on the highes' court of the land, wrote In a dispatch on Oct., 1, 1953: "President Eisenhower says he chose governor Warren (to be chief justice) because of his mid dle-of the-rodd philosophy. Wha has that to do with the interpre tation of the statutes or the set tlement of controversies between citizens, especially, when funda mental questions of constitution ality are involved?.. ,. "There U ho middle of th< road as. between right am wrong in determining a judicia question. Congress may pas good or. bad laws, yet whethe they are consltutional has t> be decided not on the basis o any particular philosophy o government but on their actua conformity to the powers se forth in the Constitution." In the same week In 1953, t>u before it was known who would statement was Issued by Glenn R. Winters, editor of the Journal of the American Judicature Society, in which he said: "Today the total prior judicial experience of the members of ,he Supreme Court consists of Mr. Justice Black's 18 months as a police judge and Mr. Just ice Minton's eight years on the federal appellate bench." Mr. Winters declared it was possible to overemphasize the need for prior judicial exper i - ence, but added: "It seems more han clear that It has actually been badly underemphasized. There are great and distinguished Judges today on both state and federal courts eminently qualififed for the judicial and appointments to the high court he nominated such objec t i v e- minded and experienced federal judges as John M. Harlan Charles E. Whlttaker, and Potter Stewart, all of whom have made significant contributions to constitutional law. Bui the trend has since turned the other way again, and it is surprising that spokesmen for the bar associations, who o f t e r stress the need for a "rule ol law," are willing to sit by with out protest as political rat h e i than Juridical training become! the major qualification for ap pointment to the highest courl of the land. (Copyright, 1965, New Y o r 1 Herald Tribune Inc.) The Washington Scene By RAY CROMLEY WASHINGTON (NEA) — There's an old frontier story about a famous Indian medicine man. When a white scout with an incurable sore on his lip asked the Indian if 'he could heal him, the redskin doctor said yes. Whereupon he tied the white man to a tree, ordered a poker heated red hot in a campflre and thrust into the man's side. When the victim regained consciousness he weakly out angrily asked what the Indian thought he was doing. "It's simple," said the medicine man. "I didn't know how to cure that sore. But I do know how to cure a burn. Now your sore is gone and you have a burn. I can handle that." The question is whether the United States with a red hot poker (a massive influx of modern arms) can convert an old- fashioned guerrilla war (which we don't know how to fight) into a conventional conflict (at which we are adept).History gives a mixed answer. The Japanese failed in China, the French in 'Indochina and Algeria. The United States succeeded In Greece and the British in Malaya. The Philippine government put down the Huks. Long years ago, after a long struggle, the U.S. Army defeated the American Indians. There are critical points to note about each success! u 1 an- tiguerrllla campaign. Modern weapons were v e ry useful. They were not the .d e - elding factor. None of the antiguerrilla wars in fact, were won by directly defeating the guerrilla forces. No war against guerrillas was won until five major objectives were achieved: 1. The guerrillas were cut off from their major foreign and domestic supplies of weapons, ammunition and food.

About four weeks ago, Mrs. Pont had a severe upper respiratory Infection, accompan i e d with "lots of blowing and sneezing." There is no previous history of sinus trouble. Examination; Mouth Is clean and healthy, and there are obvious signs that Mrs. Pont spent considerable time and effort maintaining good mouth health. Lips, tongue, cheeks, gums and soft tissues are normal. There are a number of fillings in her teeth but they are well done, properly contoured and polished. There is no clinical evidence of decay. X rays do not reveal any abscesses, or perlodontal d 1 s- ease, or any decay under fillings or between teeth. Occlusion was checked and no eccentric biting pressures were observed. Teeth are not sensitive to hot or cold but are sensitive to pressure and percus s i o n. Pulp testing indicates vitality of teeth on left side is within normal limits. Diagnosis: Mrs. Font's problem is not with her teeth. Signs and symptoms point to a sinusitis. Sometimes mucous membranes of sinuses become inflamed and swollen as a result of upper respiratory infect Ions. Swelling produces pressure on upper back teeth, the roots of which border on the floor of the sinus. Comment: Mrs. Pont was referred to a nose and throat specialist for consultation and treatment.
