rou* IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN SATURDAY, AUGUST 7, 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 Real Power of America's Women There can be little clou'if that women command an impressive power in American life. Women own 536 per rent of all common stock shares, hold one-third of the paid jobs, own nearly 50 per cent of the real estate, arc beneficiaries of more than hall the life insurance policies as well as owninc billions of dollars worth of policies of their own. and account for 80 to 90 per cent of the nation's consumer spending. On top of it all. thev a:e responsible for 50 per cent of (lie vote To one representative of the sex however, it is rjrevious erroi to measure women in terms of economics. Tn the opinion of Man- C. Hoebling. chairman of the botard of the Trenton (N J.) Trust Company, this curious emphasis upon economics in explaining the power and influence of women is one of the basic reasons for much of the world's problems today. Says Mrs. Roebling the first woman e\er to serve as chairman of the board and president of a major commercial bank. "Bv transfcrrins; the emphasis of the role of woman from her natural one to an economic one, not only is the woman displaced but a vacuum is left in all those critical areas of moral persuasion for justice' and good and, of critical importance, the molding of the next generation." It is not accident, she savs. that women in Russia are expected to work and place their children in day nurseries trom infancy. By separating child from mother, the sole influence upon it is its Communist teachers. Moreover, says Mrs. Roebling, American women do not seek and have never sought to use the influence their economic power gives them. Women do not regard tbemelves as a separate species. The}' do not vote as women. There is no "his' and "hers" ballot box. The true power of the American woman is not her economic strength, not the billions of dollars nor the stocks and bonds and properties she owns. It is a spiritual force—"'far greater than an economic force, and it is force for good which i< shaping mankind in each generation into better individuals."' ruch evidences of owner-love as a car safety belt, decorative bows for the doggy ears to match the doggy nail polish, collars aglitlcr with rhincstones, imitation pearls or other ','cms, n canine hairdrier, and doggy toys the like of which many a human kid never gets his paws—oops, his hands-on. And believe it or not, a French poodle in a luxury apartment in Cleveland wears a genuine chinchilla coat! Canine clothing conies in sizes for that per- Ifcct fit. The well-dressed dog has not only • •vercoats, earbows and classy collars, but a raincoat with hood. Facts like these are bound to provoke sneers and snorts from some humans. But owners who spend this kind of doggy dough get their money's worth in satisfaction. A dog's love and loyalty is heartwarming and genuine, whether the pet is wearing chinchilla and jewels or just common old slacks and jacket. And don't forget: When this much money is going to the dogs, it helps make sure the na- tron's economy isn't. New Power for Uncle Sam? Well, it turns out that the kids have been right all along. London bridge IS falling down! No one knows how the youngsters first found out about it years and year; ago. And you have tfi wonder why they chose to divulge the information in a game instead of reporting it to the proper municipal authorities. But no one can say the children haven't given us plenty of warning over the years that the famous old bridge was structurally faulty. Millions of them have loudly and insistently chanted the familiar refrain over and over again. The adults just didn't get the message. Who's Putting on the Dog? The next time some disgruntled character tells you he's living a dogs life, congratulate him warmly. For there is reason to believe that our dogs may be achieving the Great Society faster than their masters. The American Pet Products Manufacturers Association reports that Americans are spending $530,000,000 a year to feed their dogs and another $250,000,000 for canine products and services. This means that while all the 26,000,000 dogs in this country aren't living in luxury, a lot of them are. A personality pooch who establishes a special rapport with his or her own can expect Since the kids seem to have such powers of prophesy, wouldn't it be wonderful if they could come up with other games based on happier predictions? Suppose, for example, thev would chant to such lilting Ivrics as "Uncle Sam will win Viet Nam!" Who knows? It just might work. And the way things are going, what have we got to lose? Get with it, kids. Let's hear it now for good old Uncle S! A doctor says an exercise break is better for a worker than a coffee break. Too many col- fee breaks can get him his walking papers. As a California golfer lined up a putt, a Hock of clucks waddled across the green. He didn't score a single birdie When Dad bought top-soil, he found out it isn't dirt cheap. ,. Food prices arc on the rise again. It's a good thing Mom is farsighted. Free advice is usually worth just what you pa}' for it. Will War II Settlement Hold? (Copyright 1MB, Kim Feature* Syndicate, tee.I By lohn Chamberlain Alter every major war there is a settlement and a new status quo. The boundary lines that are established, whether officially or tacitly, must be respected, or else a new cycle of war begins. World War II was no exception to the rule A great semi-circle was drawn through the Eurasian continent, from the Baltic Set through the heart of Germany and on around to the waist of Korea. The Communists, probing the Western nations' willingness to defend the settlement, tried successively to bite off Greece, Iran, Turkey, SVest Berlin, South Korea, the Philippines, Iraq, Laos, and Lebanon. In all instances thev were thrown back. Tough little Harry Truman recovered from the delusions of Potsdam in time to promulgate the Truman Doctrine, which kept the Communists from subverting Turkev and Greece. General Lucius Clay saved West Berlin. The Communist Huks were suppressed in the Philippines. The UN "police action" in Korea preserved the status quo in that divided country. In mainland China there was a Red Revolution from within, which the West was unable or unwilling to do anything about. But the revolution was stopped at Formosa Strait, and the forces of Mao Tse-Tung have never been able to seize Chiang Kai-Shek's outpost islands of Quemoy and Matsu. Along the semi-circle th:it runs from the Baltic Sea round to the waist of Korea there has been one soft spot: Southeast Asia. There the Reds have succeeded in taking over a part of Laos. But this is not a major breakthrough. If the Communists should succeed te capturing South Viet Nam. however, the post-world War II setdement will have been shattered. It would be the equivalent of Hitler's remilitarization of the Rhineland and subsequent seizure of Austria and the Czech Sudetenland, a signal to the world that the old balance of power no longer holds. The bigger, more fateful, showdown would then loom. It is popular, in certain quarters today, to sav that the United States cannot "police the world." Walter Lipprnann pounds away at this thesis night and day. But 1701(01112 the settlement achieved in a \ictorious war is not an attempt to become a global cop; it is merely a business of trying to hold one's own. The United States, for better or worse, did not go to the rescue of the Hungarian revolutionists in the mid-fifties, for Hungary was on the Soviet side of the post-World War II line. Again, for better or worse, we have made no real attempt to deny Castro's right to rule inside Cuba; our significant actions in the Caribbean and Central American area have been limited to preventing Cuba, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic from becoming Soviet offensive outposts in the western hemisphere True enough, Castro has, in a sense, breached the World War II settlement lines by abetting Moscow's efforts to subvert governments in Venezuela, Northeast Brazil and elsewhere. But our diplomacy, having made the initial mistake of letting Castro get away with it when he proclaimed himself a Marxist-Leninist 'until the day I die." has performed valiantly in the attempt to seal off Cuba as an offensive unit in the Soviet coalition. The difference between trying to "police the world" and trying to maintain'the settlement achieved by a victorious war is. no doubt, a subtle one. For when it comes to trying to police what might be termed an extended neighborhood it may very well seem that we are trying to protect everyone, everywhere. But if we had really set up shop as a global police man we would have gone to the rescue of the Hungarians with tanks and planes. We would have moved to tear down the Berlin Wall. And we would have heeded the cry of the Tibetans for help against the Red Chinese. In his bones Lyndon Johnson knows that South Viet Nam could become the Rhineland and the Sudetenland of today. It is not a question of trying to "police the world." It is merely a matter of trying to keep a status quo from breaking down When Rome withdrew her legions from the Scottish wall and from "Rhineland orchard and Danube fen," the barbarians thronged through the gaps. But the 'Roman peace" had lasted for five hundred vears. If the West lets its own walls crumble, our peace will have lasted for exactly two decades. Can It Be Stopped? The International Whirligig <R*lea«*4 bf UaClur* Newspaper Syndicate! —TOM LITTLE, NASHVILLE TENNESSEAN Today in National Affairs By DAVID LAWRENCE rights or present grieva nee s WASHINGTON — To clergymen who have those against violations of their rights been teaching "civil disobedience" or who have been engaging in "sit- ins" and "lie-ins" and other demonstrations that have blocked to do so, provided they act in a peaceful and orderly man n e r and provided they resort to the courts and not to the streets when they are thwarted in the exercise of this privilege by au- traffic and produced disord e r thorities acting under cover of in northern as well as southern cities, a decision just rendered by U. S. District Judge Frank M. Johnson, Jr., may come as a surprise. For this federal judge has just ruled that "civil disobedience" under the guise of "civil rights" must be prosecuted. He made this ruling in connection with the cases of 167 demon- law." The Reverend Martin Lut her King, Jr., is one of the leaders in the crusade to stimulate demonstrations on racial questi o n s throughout the country, and he has said again and again that a citizen does not have to obey an "unjust" law. The same sentiment has been expressed by many white clergymen who are strators arrested last March in j sincerely convinced that a law Montgomery. Ala. Their attorneys had tried to appeal the cases to the federal court, but Judge Johnson sent them back to local courts as being within their jurisdiction. Police authorities throughout now to provide redress for the: grievances of the citizens. No! constitutional system existed such as America enjoys today, which gives individuals the right! of petition and the right to elect their own representatives, who! then make the laws. Judge Johnson is one of the oustanding judges on the bench,! and he has dealt with segrega-l tion cases impartially by ml- 1 ing in each case according to! the law as he sees it. He wasi appointed by President Eisenhower in 1D55. Judge Johnson's decision would; have occasioned no surprise' whatsoever a decade ago. But! since that time the demonstra-i tions on racial questions have' been sponsored by groups which : have insisted that this is the only : way to dramatize grievances! and get attention and that, be-j cause the objective is wort h y By ANDREW TULLY WASHINGTON - Sen. Bill Fulbright, (D., Ark.), and some other professional Internationalists have unwittingly exposed a double standard in the practice of government by Intimidation in their caterwauling over pressure which caused the Firestone Rubber Co. to cancel a deal to build a $50 million synthetic rubber plant In Red Rumania. According to Fulbright and Co., a right-wing outfit named the Young Americans for Freedom attacked the proposed deal so vigorously that Firestone chickened out of it. It is the premise of F u 1- bright's flock that since the administration had approved the deal as in the national interest it should have helped Firestone resist these pressures. This makes sense. Without going into the merits of the deal, no administration should permit a pressure group to veto a policy matter. PRECEDENT ESTABLISHED —But—ah there, Mr. Fulbright! —the trouble Is that both Capitol Hill and the White House have established a precedent in dealing with, pressure groups. If pressure is exerted by civil rights advocates, the government accepts the message meekly—even if it is delivered in the form of street violence— and bows to the pres sure group's demands. This is not to say that the Negro's cause is not just. By this time, its justice has been acknowledged by all but a few mentally untidy segregationists. But those who oppose government by intimidation c a n't I have it both ways. If it is reprehensible for a conservative outfit to bring pressure on the government, then it is reprehensible for CORE to threaten Presidents and Congresses with strident political "or else." The voting rights bill unconstitutionally suspends literacy tests in some states because pressure from civil rights groups demanded it. In Mississippi, the Freedom Democratic Party has urged Negro mothers to encourage their sons to dodge the draft in protest against racial discrimination. Gov. Will i e Scranton of Pennsylvania has joined the effort to break a philanthropist's will because civil rights groups demonstrated over a provision which bars Negro children from a school found e d with the man's money. •A o •& PROTEST STILL CONSTITUTIONAL — As a citizen who rejects the alternative of nuclear world war, I am all for exploring the feasibility of East-West, trade. Since we are forced to live with these Communist ra.s- cals, I should like it to be as economically profitable as possible. But I do not reject the right of what the ineffable Mr. Fulbright describes as "a minor vigilante group" to protest such dealings. Until the country Is taken over liberal movement, such pro- by the authoritarian wing of the tests are both proper and constitutional, involving the citizen's right to freedom of speech. I do not sneer at some Americ a n s because they look with disfavor- on selling a rubber plant to a country whose political philosophy goes in heavily for the secret policeman's mid night knock at the door. Nevertheless, the Fulbrig h t s have made a good point to wit, that the State Department was weakkneed in not giving its full support to Firestone in a deal okayed by this government.

Editor Daily Globe: The City of Montreal Common Council at its monthly meet- thg passed an ordinance relating to the parking of cars and trucks on Pennsylvania Ave. between Ottawa and Toronto Sts. in Gile's northside. The reason given was that the street was too narrow to permit such parking of motor vehicles. If this ordinance is justified in this case of a city street, what about the parking of motor vehicles on Wisconsin Ave. (Highway 77) which goes right through the city. The narrow Wisconsin Av. has always been a problem for drivers, there is no shoulder at all between Montreal St. and Saxon Rd. on Wisconsin Av. I think the city council should have had parking restrictions on Wisconsin Ave. years ago. It is high time the council does something about this more traveled on Wisconsin Ave. than on a small less traveled on city street. Thank you, DAVID E.

On the other hand some patients are always late. These people are probably late for everything in their lives. To a dentist working within a tight schedule, this is more than an inconvenience: Time lost can never be made up. Some people are late because they hate dentistry. They are in morbid fear of needles and drills. Consciously or subconsciously, they try to avoid the dental episode.' One woman c o n - fessed that she purposely comes late so that her dentist won't be able to see her. She makes late morning dates, close to noon, when she knows that if she's late enough, her dentist will leave for lunch. This subterfuge is quite unnecessary in this day of modern dentistry: patients can be relieved of their dental anxieties by premedication with sedatives or tranquilizers. A small, elite group is late because members are in a constant state of intellectual limbo. One famous scientist, who is working on a communications system so complicated only a handful of people in the world know anything about it, is so absentminded he must be called the morning of his appointment. His wife again reminds him as he leaves the house. In order to get to his laboratory he must ride his bicycle past his dentist's office, yet he sometimes forgets and goes right by to his lab. Then he's called at his lab and he hurries back. Another professor, brilliant, a world authority on history of political thought, is always one hour late. But his problem was easy to solve. Since he's consistent, he's scheduled one hour later than he's told. Some women are late because they're just late. No excuse, or too many excuses. They arrive with lipstick half on, zipper partially,, undone, hair not quite combed, eye-shadow slightly smudged. One dentist reassures them with: '"Don't worry about being late. I'll just drill faster to make up lost time." Please send your questi on s about dental health to Dr. Lawrence in care of this paper.
