editorial WRITER HELPS CIFY TO REGAIN COURAGE A Facts columnist demonstrated recently that there is a vast amount of human kindness and sympathy In the public that will show itself whenever the need makes itself felt. Jim Bishop, whose column appears three times each week in The Facts, is one of the m«rt popular of newspaper writers. He is raad by millions. A few weeks bark he passed through the small town of St. Cloud, Fla., and lingered to write a column about it. You may recall it. In his precise, uncomplicated way he described the futile efforts of St. Cloud citizens to build a much needed hospital. Their despair Was much the same as that c-f Sweeny Jaycees at one point in their now successful project. The people of St. Cloud had labored mightily for 10 years, Bishop told, but finally they seemed to be stymied. It wasn't an earth shaking column alongside the news of nuclear testing, political upheaval and the Billie Sol mess. It did touch the hearts of many people throughout the country, however. Maybe you were one of them, and maybe you were even one of the increasing number who tried to lend a helping hand. Since Bishop's column appeared, hundreds of letters, many with a crumpled single or even five dollar bill, were delivered to Mrs. Beddington, who has been spearheading the St. Cloud Hospital drive. It goes a long way to prove that the pen, in the hands of a sympathetic writer such as Bisliop, is still mighty; that it can dip into the inkpot of human kindness more readily than into gill, and still j prod people to emotion nnd action. The unexpected nationwide response to the St. Cloud problem sparked by Bishop's column has not yet dented the dollar deficit. But it has given courage to the people in their uphill struggle. The St. Cloud Newspaper said: "Every mail brings in the cheers from the people of America for our SI. Cloud Hospital. And with their cheers, our hospital team just has to win." This is part of the continuing role o£ the newspaper: To seek out and publish the information which is the basis for public action; to help unite those of similar viewpoint; to bring together a need or a problem and those with the resources to fill the need or solve the problem.

APPROPRIATE , COMMITTU Paul Harvey News •y PAUL HAOVEY We Run Things Better Than He The world Is divided, left n n i-Eht, between two kinds of people: those who think individual nrp competent to manage thcl own affairs, and those who think Government c«n do it better The architects of our Republic thought they'd found the bes combination, but we're still ing; about it. And we have been compromising their blueprint, granting to Big Government a greater and greater degree of authority. , I think Uncle Sam is a lousy I business man, a miserably incompetent manager, « lazy'work- er, and chicken! I think Americans, Individually, are good business men, excellent managers, only a little laity — and they can whip anybody when they get mad enough. How did everybody ever get brainwashed with the notion that "Government can do It better," where there is so much evidence to the contrary? Every public clamor to turn a private transit system over to Government ownership has re- suited in increased fares and decreased service. Our Government tried to Invade Cuba without the help of American individuals and got clobbered. Sam can't fight without us. His military establishment is shot through with waste, duplication, and sometimes incredibly bad planning. He's a farce as a farmer. He lanet "in "less' agricultural manipulations siig Rest that Sam can't bn trusted with your money.

He'* nlwnys buying things which he already has lying around unused: 11 ri <llk and 12 other items I con nRmc If I have to. His financing of social security s notoriously Insecure. Sam Is In debt so deep thRt Just he interest on the debt amounts o 10 million dollars a day, and he can't meet payments even on the ntercst. Who can possibly construe Big Jovernment to be more capable nan we, the people? Sam has more hired help nm- ling around than Rnytlme In 10 r'ears. His payroll is a record illlion dollars' this year. The only vay he can pay his bills is to :eep printing more dollars worth ess. Eventually, unless we stop ilm, our dollar will be worthless. It's time for Americans to stop sking their Government to tend o more and more chorea. Big Government is Incompetent to manage our affairs properly.
