editorials Garden City Telegram Thursday, Augutt 1, 19*3 "But They May Be Grinding Exceeding F«m>'' Hoi Boyle Soys: Despair on Potomac A Congressman wrote a friend that his feeliftgs as one of (lie people's representatives alternate between elation and despair. One d#y he is homesick, the next hopeful that eventually he will write a Rood law. He sadly realizes that time may be distant. $ His feelings are nmlorstandable. Last, week, testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations committee revealed that a firm of U.S. public relations expert? were hired for $500,000 a year to present Portugal's side of the Angola question. These press agents were able to dominate the House of Representatives for an entire day. The firm used the office and stuff of a congressman for its propaganda purposes. Speeches written by the firm were given by senators and congressmen, oflen without bothering to change a word. The implication is not that the congressmen who cooperated were crooks but that they were naive and stupid. Suckers. As the testimony was released, workmen were busy erecting a block-long 10-story marble palace at a coat of more than $83 million. The elegant edifice will provide more office space for members of the House. No other government building over cost HO mucW: The Wall Street Journal reports that the Oon- gneas is increasing spending on itself at a faster percentage rate than the administration. Congressmen make loud speeches in behalf of economy and then authorize more patronage for themselves) buy $700 draperies for their windows, install swimming pools and other luxuries at public expense. After six months, this Congress h-as not enacted one bill of major importance. It has tackled a bundle of problems with the due deliberate speed of desegregation in Alabama. Congress is dangerously near failing its job utterly, and at a time when the country is confronted with new needs and .emergencies. The legislators need radical reforms in their rules, their work habits and their public morals. Pr/e/e in fhe loo r pi« prize wasn't the sole motivating force behind "tnore than 300 persons who entered the zebra- naming contest. Winner was announced yesterday by the Garden City Rotary Club, sponsors of the naming event for a b«,by zebra born earlier this summer at the Lee Richardson Zoo. While prize money helped, there is a pride in the 2500 among those in this area which we feel is responsible for the large number of entries. An often-asked question by visitors to the zoo is : How can a town this size afford such a zoo. Garden City can afford it because it wants to, and because of the dedication of those who maintain and supervise the zoo. Soms animals are gifts, while many others have been traded for, or purchased with proceeds from sale of surplus animate. Garden Citians and those in this area bring a cowtdhuous string of visitors to the zoo — "allowing off " something we are proud of and something worthy of our pride. So it's little wonder that when a baby zebra needs a name, more than 300 persons — some submitting several names — respond to the call. And in the event some local or area organization is looking for a project, the zoo always has a place for Some new animal or improved facilities.

We want to advise Paar that he'll have to get used to a new Imperial look, because high heel sales are sliding.

The new oval toes are over long vamp lasts and have new-look heels. You may not accept this look at once, so take your time to digest the change.

The group is headed by Dr. Carlos Marquez Sterling, who helped frame Cuba's last constitution and who was an unsuccessful candidate for president in 1958 It i s called Free Cuba Patriotic Movement.
