Money At this time we wish to express our thanks for all of the help our subscribers, merchants and all, have given this member of the Tribune staff.. .and also wish one and all... .a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR! Since there will be no delivery of mail on the holiday we have chosen today in order that the message will be received by all mail subscribers as well as those served by news- paperboy. Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR. . .and especially a safe one... one to be remembered! JUST REMEMBER REMEMBER, there have been all kinds of predictions made concerning what will happen in 1971.. .and the decade to follow. Most" of them have one thing in common. All forsee growth, after we emerge from the inflation plus we are in at the present time. Perhaps 1970 may be looked back upon as a year when things, were not quite in proper orbit. . .but most people were placing their faith in the ability of the United States to 'bounce back'. . .as she has in the past, from many other situations as grave, or even moreso. MAYBE IT WILL be looked back upon, as a time when broad economic planning was done by government and a managed economy started a final march to the day of reckoning against inflation. PERHAPS IT WILL even be looked back a time when the feelings of the people were taken into CONSIDERATION... and the huge tax load was attacked.. .full force.. .with FAVORS for none, other than what they deserved. ' ,;. •' WE ARE SURE it will be the time when the PEOPLE will be come obvious of the fact that the government must have a CHECK on spending. . '.and face up to the fact that ihey, the people, must stand up and be counted,.and ADVISE the federal government that WASHINGTON is the ROOT of high and rising prices. At least we sincerely hope so. It may also be a time when people will realize that in sending men to government positions, they, may expect them to work FOR the people, not against them! Perhaps there are not enough BUSINESSMEN. . .too many EXPERTS (?)...and a tendency by the HOUSE and SENATE; plus APPOINTED officials, to tend to 'feather their nests politically and financially, instead of carrying on the affairs of government for the benefit of their constituents. 1970 WAS THE YEAR in which we experienced both RECESSION in a manner, and INFLATION. Just who will be blamed for this, the party in power, which inherited much of the trouble, or the opposition? Of one thing the public is sure; there is too much RECKLESS SPENDING.. .our debt is far too great, and we cannot ' afford to allow the situation to become chronic. POLITICAL LABELS are fine, but it is time to go 'all out'for the U.S.A., and forget politics until our troubles are over. AS WE GO ALONG, there will be many attempts to cover up overspending, errors in management, mistakes of Congress, etc; but if. the public will 'tell it like it is'.. .to Washington and their representatives there, action will be forthcoming. Elected officials do not fear constituents who are WILLING TO ACCEPT ANY TYPE OF ACTION, but they DO FEAR the people who advise them of the ERRORS of their ways, and by telling them, this is the only way we will ever get back to sane government. YES, they do PLAN in Washington, in fact they spend so much time planning there does not seem time for them to ACT! Correct planning is efficient, but planning. . .then not carrying it out, is INEFFICIENCY, and a business as big as government cannot afford to have same. on the lighter side 6:00 O <•> DfckVan Dyln O Early lUpart O »»• Nawt (Q Eyewitness Newt CD What's New 4:30 O Danial Baoaa Boone helps o former Royalist prove his right to be an American.

By my calculation, compiled during, a weekend in front of the television set, 934 of them are "unsung heroes." I arrived at this figure by taking the number of players identified as unsung heroes in . four games and then multiplying that by the number of teams in the league, divided by the number of play-by-play announcers and analysts. The presence of so many unsung heroes on the screen gave my heart a wrench, and as the games wore on I began to try to think of some way to sing them. At halftime, during the first game Sunday - afternoon, I even went so far as to compose a song about them: And Here It Is "Sing a song of unsung heroes; "Publicity-wise, a string of leroes. "How sad it is to be heroic "And not have -anybody but a television announcer know it. "So lift your voice to the highest rung, "And let no hero remain unsung." (These lyrics should be sung to the tune of Bach's third cantata for zither and chorus, Opus 23, in D sharp minor.) Sometimes an outsider can see things more clearly than a person who is personally involved. Therefore, I auditioned the song • for my wife, who is very unemotional about football, other than hating it a lot. "It doesn't scan, crazyth- ighs," she said, addressing me by one of my nicknames. "And besides that, if you sing about an unsung hero, he won't be unsung any longer, and all of those sports announcers will be unable to identify 934 players." Could Call Them "Sung" .'• "Well, they could start calling them 'sung* heroes," I said, but I knew • deep down that it wouldn't work. At the next time out, and again while the referee was giving the two-minute notice, I blitzed my brains for other ways to honor unsung heroes. The idea I finally came up with is an NFL Unsung Hero All-Star team. Plus an unsung hero "Hall of Fame" in which the busts of football's most eminent nonentities would be preserved. HELEN HELP US! •by Helen Bottel- Car Pool Communication Dear Helen: We ride six in a car pool. Four of the others sleep, read, talk — when they feel like it, but don't feel obligated as we're not close friends. However, one rider and I are long-time friends, and we talk together in a foreign language because this is our native tongue and almost our only chance to "practice" it. The argument developed that we shouldn't talk so that others can't understand. But if others sleep, yawn, read, etc., why not? Should car pool people consider themselves in a social environment, or just look on this as a means of transportation, like a bus? —RUDE? Dear Rude?: Why not join the general conversation — if there is any. If not, then you have a right to converse in your native tongue, A car pool is a social gathering of sorts, and it's everyone's duty to make the ride as pleasant as possible. If you close down communication completely you might miss some valuable friendships. —H. Dear Helen: Our home has always been open to our children's friends. Up until this year's experiences, I've liked the young crowd. Now I don't know. You can't respect girls who sell themselves cheap and boys who think only of sex. My daughter tells me the only way to have a boy friend is to "put out." In my day, the boy went steady with good girl, and dated the tramp on the off nights, and everything worked out fine. Today the good girl sits home and prays for a date while these wild ones are having fun and spending the boy's money. My daughter is a good girl. Fellows think she is a rare jewel, for she's very pretty, but they treat her as a rare jewel by staying their distance. They never ask her out the second time This free love scene forces girls to "play the game" when they're not ready. The emphasis on sexmakes them afraid to say No" for two reasons: They'll stay home, and (even more deadly) they'll be considered "frigid." When will girls rise up| and tell the world that they simply aren't, the highly sexed creatures men dream them to be? Until the absolutely "right" guy comes along. —MOTHER Dear Mother: I agree with you that over-emphasis of sex has pushed many young people into disastrous affairs, but I don't agree that the jewels" are all that "rare." Nor are they doomed to date- lessness — not if they're attractive, interesting, amusing peo pie who make their viewpoint clear without flaunting the "I'm a good girl" button. Dear Readers: (Male and female) Here's another question for you. How about it: Does a girl "have to if she doesn't want to" these days, in order to "make the dating scene? —H. Dear Helen: Gotcha again! You said (when talking about "hate letters"): "Lady columnists, Yup — even US1" It's "Even WE." -GRAM MARIAN Dear Grammarian: Touchel (But you have to admit, it sounds funny). pays Daughter Sue: "What does he want, 'well' grammar or well put?") —H. This column is dedicated to family living, so if you're having kid trouble or just plain trouble, let Helen help YOU. She will also welcome your own amusing experiences.

Calmed The Cities » Aides also credit his policies with calming the cities — "none . have burned under Nixon"—and quieting the college campuses. The President's surprise deci- - sion to send U.S. troops into Cambodia touched off violent reaction, including the shooting of four Kent State university students by Ohio National Guardsmen. But he rode out the storm, contending that the move saved American fives in the long run and helped his Vietnamizatio plan. It signalled to the world, particularly the Communists, that Nixon might move unpredictably— a strategy considered important by the President's . national security affairs adviser, Henry A. Kinssinger. On the domestic front, Nixon aides say there was a relatively smooth foilowup'to the Supreme Court's order to desegregate schools at once. One aide put it this way: "Look at the South, no buses have been overturned. The government is dealing with the problems in the hard core areas." Criticized About Priorities One of the criticisms.levelled at the Chief Executive is that he has spent SO per cent of his time in foreign affairs, neglecting the tormenting problems of the cities, poverty and growing militancy in the ghettos which adds to raciai tensions. ' Whatever the validity of these complaints, the President unquestionably is happier grappling with foreign poiicy problems than he, is dealing with home affairs. He is a jaunty traveler and has taken six trips abroad, including one round-the-world tour. On such travels he emphasizes the U.S. policy of "peace through strength" and "power with restriint." • When he took over the White House on Jan. 20, 1969, Nixon spoke of "negotiation rather than confrontation" _ with the Soviet Union. Since then relations have chilled considerably although the Strategic Arms Limitation (SALT) talks still go on between' the two superpowers. The Nixon Doctrine At Guum in July, 1969, he enunciated the Nixon doctrine, the keystone of his foreign policy which calis for a lower U.S. profile as a world policeman. He promises to maintain the U.S. presence in Asia, but wants Asians to take up the burden of their own defense. In short, no more ' Vietnams. In the Middle East, Nixon initiatives led to a cease-fire. He also stepped up arms aid to Israel which> thus reasured, agreed to resume peace talks with Egypt and Jordan under U.N. auspices. When Nixon took office, there was a credibility gap which led one aide to declare that "the presidency was under siege." This aide says Nixon- "has restored the dignity of. the White House and respect for the office." The Khief Executive believes in strict formality and decorum. Some of his parties swing with rock and roil toward the end of the evening, but the President and Mrs. Nixon by then have long since bid their adieus. John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson often threw protocol out the window and stayed long intotlie evening. Greatest Triumph Nixon's greatest momento of personal triumph was surely the Apoilo 11 ' moon landing. His most searing week followed the Cambodian venture. Aides say he "knew there would be turmoii but he had to do what he felt was right*" . The President added to the dismay of Americans .opposed to the war by calling dissident students "campus bums." Later, he. decided to go to the Lincoln Memorial at 4 a.m. during an anti war rally to rap with cohege kids and maybe reach some plane of krider- standing. The students involved didn't ; consider the effort an unqualified success. Statistically speaking, Nixon held 28 cabinet meetings and 52 National Security Council meetings during his first two years. He met the Republican congressional leadership 41 times and bipartisan leaders 17 times. Hs has had four major . cabinet changes. Failure to Communicate Hs has been criticized for his alleged failure to keep open the lines of communications with Congress-^ and even his own cabinet. In foreign affairs, he has often cited his power as "Commander-in-Chief" to move first and inform Congress afterwards. he Pcesident commands a deep respect from his staff and they apparently do not live in' fear of his wrath, unlike those who served LB J and were often openly humiliated. He is not a table pounder and he is not a hip shooter. But he has displayed anger. It came through when the Senate rejected two of his Supreme Court appointees. Nixon charged that the senators would not accept a man ' from the South. To Nixon, a man's greatest attribute is to- perform with coolness and composure under stress. He triumphed over his "loser" image in a brilliant comeback and philosophizes •often with young people that one can always try try again, and succeed. DAILY CROSSWORD •Wall Street Chatter NEW YORK (UPI)-Stock market averages and gross national product figures obscure "the immense damage" done in 1970, according to Hoppin, Watson .& Co. The firm said neither do these figures offer much optimism for 1971. However, the firm believes individual companies that survived the- holocaust "carry a promise far beyond what their present figures might asug- gest." , The dramatic switch in the administration's' economic policies is obvious, notes Paine, Webber, Jackson & Curtis Inc. But it said, it will take time before the effects of the new policy on the economy, business, production, employment and incomes will be noticed. "The lag will provide astute investors with potential profit- making opportunities," Paine Webber believes. Those who believe more inflationis bad for the stock market are in the minority — "a fact which in itself may well prove bearish sooner, rather than later," according to Janeway Poublishing & Research Corp. The company says it is a well-known rule that "a buildup of stock market confidence comes before the fall" and it expects a fall "early in 1971." Janeway predicts the highs for 1971 will be reached in January. TPO Inc. says the five-week- old intermediate rally "has not spread as anticipated." A , "good market" it says, "would show several groups attracting buying" instead of selective few of the current rally. Thus the company feels the market will give up some of the recent gains in order to build a base for a more comprehensive upward thrust. But TPO adds market direction is "decidedly up and any reaction may be looked upon as a buying opportunity." ACROSS - 1. Having wings 5. "Citv of Light" 10. suzette 11. Mountain ridge :i.
