Most of this propaganda is prepared and published by public relation.-" firms — for outlandish fees. Funds for tin's promotion usually come from American aid. Main objective: Convince the American public and more directly our Kovernment that this particular country deserves more aid. Newsman, especially those on the staffs of lar#e dailies and of wire services, often are offered all- expense trips abroad to a certain country. While there they are wined, dined, and brain-washed, and in in res!urn are pressured to write favorable articles for a particular government. We haven't had any such offers, bein^ such a small voice out here in the wilderness, but we. would like an offer just for the opportunity of saying no. Along with a negative reply, we could expound the reasons for our answer. In addition to hein^ imwilHnpr to Rftll our services, we would refuse to use the power of the printed Word in this manner. Yet it is beiiiK done, and it leaves the American renders vulnerable to this slanted •reporting. It leaves suspect many of the overseas reports, and adfls to the confusion of an already mixed-up Student of international affairs. ':,: Integrity is losing popularity in every corner. Pass the Bicarb Tf you rc-f.riil.arly order steak and potatom for dinner and a linm sandwich for lum-h. .saving fried chicken for Sunday, you will not be disturbed. American cooks are pood enough for you. If, however, you yearn for the higher things of life and fancy yourself a gourmet when expense account permits, you will be saddened by the statistics. It seems the number of really good chefs in the United States has doc-lined from 5,000 to 4,000 in the past decade, and almost no tfood one« are being irrv ported from Europe where fine chefs are born. Considering there are more than a half million professional cooks in the country, this news gives one indigestion. Obviously Congress should pass two measures and at once. One to create schools where chefs may be trained to dish out "escalopes de veau saute cordon bleu" without a sct'ond thought. The oilier to create schools where we yokels may learn to crave the same. WASN'T IT just three or four years ago thab cranberries, canned and otherwise, were in such bad repute- because of a poisonous spray that'd been used •in some back east cranberry patch? Rut now the taint is long gone. You can eat cranberries without a twinge — and if you don't include ' something cranberry red in your fall and winter wardrobe, the ads say, you'll be positively dead in fashionable circles. : + * + A HKAUTIFUL Collie pup, possibly full-blooded, needs a good home.
