l 'age 6 THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE CHURCHILL SAID: "NEVER GIVE UP" A person may be-lorgiven, I suggest,' for not accepting gracefully the acts of those who are debilitating America. I don't; there is nothing graceful about my reaction. ;' 1 do confess, though, the miscreants have me fighting from the flat of my back and my spirit is as* low as ever it has been. Let me tell you why: Did you read of the Federal indictment "of four Catholic ..priests and. a nun. They have been charged, you may have noticed, with complicity in a plot to kidnap (i.e. endanger the life of) a presidential advisor, and to dynamite Federal buildings? Did you see that?" By^all odds, the thought is the most sickening internal- development in my life time; real gutter Gilbert & Sullivan. People df.God, these. Here is another: Two White army officers, stationed in Viet Nam, ordered a passe] of Black "soldiers" to lower their noise level. -The result: One officer murdered, in his tracks; the other critically wounded. : The day that story broke I ran into a friend, a retired lieutenant general. 1 made reference to the morning's news and his face turned livid. "Please don't speak of it", 'he said, "i had trouble eating my breakfast this morning". I share his shamc.My country come to this. That is why I sometimes react as I should not; why! sometimes feel like giving up. But not for long; What acts as my revivifier is an incident in the life of Winston Churchill. Let me tell you the story. Per; haps there are others who, from time to time, feel as I do. Perhaps it will serve, when needed, to restore their spiritsas it restores mine. ***** The winter of 1941 was a desperate winter for the British. In Africa, Rommel was chewing them to bits and Hitler, was knocking at the gates of Moscow'and Leningrad. That, broadly, was the situation. Franse was gone and the British stood virtually alone. That winter, Churchill paid a customary visit to Harrow, his * JOHN J. SYNON old prep school. He wanted to join in singing the school songs, the traditional songs that form a bond between Harrovians all over the world .y When the singing was done he made .them a speech. ' Listen to Winston Churchill: "This is the lesson: Never give in, never give in — never, never, never, never in nothing, great or small, large or petty — never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense." ***** In my bleak moments I remember the gist of Churchill's words,' and they do something for me: Never give in. So, I sha'n't give in, not now, not eveiw never. I'm going to go on fighting those who would - are - destroying my country and if they succeed in their- end - as they may - they won't get tuppence of help from me: I despise 'em,*every one. ..*»***. Think of the. incidents 1 enumerated. There is more to each than surfaces: they are symptoms of a malaise, of a situation, of an element that is rotting this l;i land. And I don't care whether the robes of those priests are as long as Grandpa's beard; I don't care if the "Afros" of those Black ' "soldiers" are 40 inches high, I say they are- lice, scurvy scuts who should be banished from civilization. And I would feel the same if they were WASPs of 'tltfc first water - only they never are. Anyone who injures this great land Will get nothing' from me = but the back of my hand. And don't tell me they are "sick". I 'm the one who is ^ sick, to my heart; they made me so.. And don't tell me — in the case of the priests and the'nun. — .an indictment is not a conviction. That indictment was ' brought out upon evidence gathered, by J.' Edgar Hoover's FBI. And Hoover,.you may or may jiot know, is a life-long, devout Catholic. So, I am of the opinion hp wouldn't be walking ' on those eggs if he didn't know what he was doing. " I'll stand.with Hoover — and Winston Churchill- - and my country. Index for January May Show Decline Washington Window By NORMAN KEMPSTER . WASHINGTON (UPI)-When . the government issues its cost of living index for January- it may look at first glance as if inflation has been finally defeated. The January index, which will come out late in February, probably will be a little over 119 compared to the 137.8 reported for November.' Don't celebrate. It's a matter of numbers. Prices are still going up. The government, as it does every- 10 years. or so, is updating the base for its closely-watched business statistics. Most economic indicators now are based on a 1957-59 average/ The new base will be 1967. The November consumer price index meant it cost $13.78 duringthe month to buy the same variety of goods, and services that could have been obtained for $11.63 in 1967 and $10 in the period from 1957 to 1959. Costs More Now When the November index is recomputed to show the 1967 base, the figure is 118.5, meaning it cost $11.85 to buy the same goods that cost $10 in 1967. . Other key government reports will also be revised to show the new base. The Federal Reserve's industrial production index will switch to the new base in March or April. This index, which- measures the output of the nation's factories and mines, was 163.9 in December. If recomputed to show the 1967 base, it would drop to 103.7. The wholesale price index, 117.8 in December, will be 111.0 on the new scale. Government statisticians say the change' is intended to keep the figures up to date. The base A Mix-up In Business; Companies Own Others traditionally is revised every 10 years or so. This time, the government is abandoning its previous practice of using a- three-year period as the base. The new base^will be for a single year. . Previous changes in;' base periods often were greeted by complaints that they were a cosmetic job intended'to, mask the effects of inflation. Critics argue thai 116.5 seems like less inflation than 137.8. | Concern About Index Most individuals, however, are more .concerned J with changes in the index than the actual number. A 0.5 per cent monthly increase is a 0.5 per cent monthly increase regardless of the base.' A closer look at the figures tells something about the course of the economy since the mid-1960s. Consumer prices rose by 16.3 per cent in the more than eight . years' from the 1957-59 base until 1967. The increase was; 18.5 per cent in less than three years from 1967 to November 1970. Wholesale prices rose 6.1 per cent from 1957-59 to 1967 and by 11 per cent from 1967 through 1970. The industrial production index—a closely watched barometer of overall economic activity—increased 58.1 per cent from 1957-59 to 1967 and by 3.7 per cent, from 1967 to| December 1970'. j Business Today By DEAN C. MILLER UPI Business Editor NEW YORK (UPI)-In this age of corporate marriages— either the willing or merger type or the "shotgun" acquisition type—it often is difficult to identify a company without a scorecard. Time was when a cigarette company sold cigarettes and a clothier clothing. No - longer. One large drug. manufacturer' owns a distillery, for instance. A cigarette company will own a dog food business, an apparel manufacturer a .' string of theaters and a railway a shoe business. One insurance company even acquired a chain of beauty parlors. W. T.

One such company is Michigan General Corporation which emphasizes highway safety products and building materials. Ira G. Corn, Jr., senior executive, officer, has- some rather unusual rules for considering a mergr or acquisition. And Michigan General has 28' different companies. It won't buy a company whose, sales are more than $20 million annually. It's not a question of thinking small but rather a compatibility of management. With one man president of a company doing $50 million, and another doing! only $3 million, it's obvious which would get all the capital and executive attention. . j No Military Business "We also have a. policy against anything involving roili tary or defense business," said. Corn. "Not because the military (isn't a good field. It is. But only if you are 100 per cent in that .field." Michigan General won't buy a company based on high technology. "A Ph. D. sitting over here ^ with electronics and flipping his Phi Beta Kappa key isn't compatibile from a mangerial standpoint with the fellow who just got through high school." For Michigan General to get interested in a company it must have doubled its sales and earnings during the. previous five years, have a profit margin of at least 5 per cent of net sales, a management anxious to stay on and one willing to talk merger on the basis of an exchange of securities. : Strange as some of these merger . rules may seem, 1 they've worked for Michigan! General. Ail but two of their! companies made money last! year despite the recession. TAKE EXCEPTION MILWAUKEE, Wos. (UPI)Roger Cobb was turned down when he tried to register for the Milwaukee area technical . college's course in baking with yeast. He was told, he says, men "are sloppy and don't clean up well." ; Cobb, in retaliation has formed a group called "Brothers Rising Earnestly Against Discrimination" (BREAD).

M.D. How to Cope With Surgety ! Dr. Coleman IN THE past'four weeks. I have had an operation on my bladder and my womb.' I am now extremely nervous and hope you will' send ; me any literature which 1 will i help my restlessness and nervousness. Mrs- H. G.. Mich: ; Dear M r s . ' G.: Any surgery., and particularly the kind you de-., ' scribe, must be followed by'- a period of weakness, fatigue and nervousness. An operation 'under general anesthesia' is a severe blow to the physical and emotional reserve of the patient. ; . It, is unreasonable to ; ex- - pect that the body can quickly recover its strength and permit you to go right back to full activity. I No booklet or-medical column can, substitute for the information that your own physician can give you. j Today, all doctors and sur- . gcons know that an operation , alone is' not considered the end of treatment. Not until the patient once again is able to function with restored physical and emotional strength can he be considered cured.. ; You have a perfect right, after such a short time, to have the feelings you describe. You do yourself ah injustice, however, by severing your association with your doctors at such an early date, j Your own doctor can tell you.of many excellent drugs . and food supplements to help • restore your energy. In- the meantime, tranquilizlng drugs- Mr. Dear Mr, L.: given by your physician: will, allay your restlessness until you are {completely recovered. lam vi'orried that I am suffering from Paget's - disease. How can I know if I have it? Al L., R. I. I am curious to know why you chose this particular" disease to worry about. Paget s disease is a comparative ly rare condition associated with a thickening of the bones of the skull. For many years,'I have written in these columns-that - the description of sjrmptoms too. oft(jn instill unnecessary fear in readers. Similar symptoms so often ' describe! totally different conditions. As you have done, many people are quick to . , .think. '•That's exactly what I have." usually they are completely wrong. In such instances, fears can mount juid cause emotional. • stress. In your case, all you . have to Ido is see your physician. He) will X-ray your skull and, undoubtedly, relieve-your anxiety |ibout a condition that most likely does not exist. i V • * - SPEAKING OF YOUR HEALfTH: Emerson said:. "Give me health ..... and I will . make the pomp of emperors, ridiculous." Dr. Lester Coleman has a ' special tiye-care booklet available for| readers of this'col­ umn called, "What You Should Know . About Glaucoma, and Cataracts." For your copy, send 251 cents In coin and a large, self* addressed 6 - cent stampedl envelope to Letter L. Cblemanl M.D^ P.O.
