PAGE FOUR THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, MAY 27,1962 Editorial.. Better Budgets Now Mandatory When officials of the local governmental units of Logan-land make up their 1963 budgets this summer, they will have to use more care than they have in past'years. Working balances, from which additional ap-. propriations are taken, have been severely depleted in many cases because of unscheduled expenditures during-'the year which-should have been foreseen. , ' It was inevitable that the State Board of Tax Commissioners should decide to crack down on the large number of additional appropriation requests as it finally did on the recent Cass county items. Unfortunately, county councils actually are . rewarded for. poorly drawn budgets under present law since the number of times they are called into session by the auditor depends upon how often there is a need for special appropriations, and they receive an extra $25 every day they a're in session. From now on, local officials will have to include in their annual budgets every expense item that can be foreseen during the coming year, for jt is apparent that the State Board of Tax Commissioners from now on will not approve a special appropriation unless it is a real emergency. Mental Health Care For Children Probation Officer Kaymond Skelton knows what a heavy tax burden Cass county residents are bearing in order to keep local law violators in correctional institutions -and to support their families while they are imprisoned. The expense of just five of these is "the equivalent of the entire annual cost of a Mental Health clinic, so those who oppose the clinic on the grounds that .it; will cost the taxpayers more money are only kidding themselves, as Skelton pointed out at the annual membership meeting of the Cass County Association for Mental Health. The Rev. Mr. Skelton put the whole matter in its proper perspective when he said, "Any way you- look at it, we're spending a lot of money; the only question is whether we're going to ;. spend our money in the right way or the wrong .. way in the years to come." Spending the tax money for a clinic to get . at the cause of the emotional illness which makes criminals is the right way. Spending it to keep these people behind bars and. their families on welfare assistance year after year -is the wrong . It is as simple as that. GEORGE E. SOKOLSKY THE CHURCH AND THE EM- PIUE Two phases of the Marxian revolution affect all peoples'today: 1. The church — that is, the Marxist ideological concept and ritual which has ibeen developed into a crusading communism. This exists in all countries, Communist, neutral, or western. The principal agency of this movement is the Communist party which in a country such'as Italy is still large in membership although Italy is an anti-Communistic country. 'In the United. States this party.is very small. ITS INDIRECT influence is extensive because many of its ideas have, been, absorbed both by the intelligenzia and the populace. For instance, there is no longer a capitalist country in the 19th century sense. Everywhere there is some kind of mixed economy, the best example being the United States where there are not only numerous controls over the. means of production and distribution but also a large number o£ government owned and operated enterprises. There are many manifestations of Marxism but what concerns us might best be described as communism. And there are many types of communism. For instance, in Soviet Russia, Marxism is a socialism which employs many of the devices of capitalism. The more industrialized Soviet Russia becomes, the less "pure" are its Communist characteristics. What .actually is happening there seems to be that an incentive system is producing a new type capitalistic elite, similar to the American self-made men of the early. 2flth century. ON THE OTHER hand, in Jugo- slavia, there seems to be a wider division of the benefits of production, while in Red China, an effort was made to turn an anarchistic, patristic 'society, vestigi- ally feudal, by a great leap, into a primitive Communist society.. Nowhere has Marxism succeed- Questions and Answers Q—What became of the tablets of stone on which were written the Ten Commandments? A—When Moses came down from Mount Sinai bearing God's laws to his people, he; found them worshiping an idol and in anger broke the two tablets. * * « Q—What is a Scarborough warning? A — A warning given after striking, that is, no warning at all. It alludes to the fact that robbers at one time were hanged at Scarborough, England, without benefit of formal trial.
