Page 2 NEW LEFT-OLD LEFT "There is one federal agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, that has no'illusions about thecampus disorders which caused more than $3 million of damage to colleges and universities in one semester year," writes editor Jim Williams of the Southwest Virginia Enterprise in WytheviUe. "This may not please some of.the high-rated intellects of the National Crime Commission," continued Editor Williams, "But Director of the FBI J. Edgar Hoover reports. Those who rally to the support of the New Left and participate in activities" championed by SDS do so under no illusion. The issues arc how clear.. .the youthful idealism of "participatory democracy"' so frequently espoused by SDS while striving for student approval, has been cast aside. The Marxist dogma is in full command. SDS now calls for outright revolution. "Inasmuch as breaking the law is a customary part of revolutionary tactics, many enforcement agencies will become involved in campus strife. In most instances, the nature and degree of involvement will depend on whether school authorities desire to protect their institutions and the rights of the majority of students who would rather study than riot, or forsake their responsibilities and give into mob rule.'. " Editor Williams called attention to one phrase from Mr. Hoover's statement for special emphasis: "Those who rally to the support of the New Left..«. " We agree with Mr. Williams that whether labeled New Left or Old Left, a continuation of the . philosophy and ideas advocated for years by Fabian Socialists and Marxist Leninists, everyone who provides any! aid, or tries to make excuses for -anarchy, violence and lawlessness is playing a big role jji the destruction of America. Wilis Report Time For Action WASHINGTON, D.C. -- "We must have action to meet the needs of today if we would have the kind of environment the Nation demands tomorrow." Pre- • sident Richard M. Nixon, February 8, 1971. The President has sent Congress a message containing tough new policies arid proposals to improve this nation;s environment. " His message points out the importance of adopting measures which would strengthen present programs, controlemergingpro- blems and promote environmental quality in land-use decisions. The President requests $2.45 billion for the programs of the newly formed Environmental Protection Agency. This is more than-double the amount;appro-- priated in fiscal 1971. These funds Trtll provide for the expansion of air and water pollution, solid waste, radiation and pesticide control programs. The administration also requests that $6 billion be authorized and appropriated over the next three years as the federal share of a $12 billion program of waste treatment facilities. In the area of enforcement, President Nixon states that be would like the Environmental Protection Agency to be empowered to impose fines of up to $£5,000 per. day for violation of water quality standards, and doubling that amount for repeat violations. .'•••*•. It is also proposed that $25 million be appropriated for development of better techniques to prevent and clean up oil spills and to.provide more effective surveillance. Other proposals. contained in the Environmental Message deal urith pesticide control, recycling of \: wastes, toxic substances, ocean dumping, and noise. One of the major parts of the President's proposal has to do with a national land-use policy. While recognizing that most land-use decisions will continue to be made at the local level, President Nixon's proposed legislation would establish a National Land-Use Policy which will encourage the states, in cooperation with local govern• ment, to plan for and regulate major developments affecting ffostoffiffl Vis the glamour of entertaining beautifully Shimmering crystal.

' To do this, the President has budgeted $10 million a year for the next five years. ; The solutions to environmental and ecological problems are always complex and costly. It is easy to define the problem, but more difficult to discover the remedy. To help come up with solutions, the President has proposed that the federal government, through the National Science Foundation and the Council on Environmental Quality, support the establishment of an Environmental Institute. The Institute strategies for dealing with the whole spectrum of environ-, -mental problems. • > Peru to Receive Nationwide Publicity The National Broadcasting Company will televise a Special program called "Circus Town" at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, February 27.

Inflation Is A World Wide Problem It appears as if the United States is having more success in holding down its wage inflation than the other major powers. Although bur Nation is up 6.2 percent in manufacturing wage rates in the last year, a recent report shows that Switzerland was up 6.7 percent; Canada, 8.3; Netherlands, 10.1; United Kingdom, 10.2; France, 10.5; Belgium, 11.6; Sweden, 13.9; West Germany, 13.9; Japan, 19.3 and Italy 20.7. News For Veterans Veterans benefits are generally exempt from taxation and need not be reported as income on Federal income tax returns, the Veterans Administration recently announced. The VA said the only reportable item is interest-earned on GI insurance dividends left on 'deposit or credit with the VA since this is considered earned income and a veterans benefit. GI insurance dividends themselves are not taxable nor are proceeds from GI insurance policies. Other major tax exempt benefits are compensation and pension, GI Bill and other educational assistance, subsistence payments to vocational rehabilitation trainees, and grants for homes or autos to severely disabled veterans. We're Trying THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE PURSE WATCHERS JM ONDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1971 National Parks in Trouble What Others Say Today you asked me for a job. From the look of your shoulders as you walked out, I suspect you've been turned down before, and maybe you believe by now that kids out of high school can't find work. But, I hired a teenager today. You saw him. He was the one with polished shoes and a necktie. What was so special about him? Not experience, neither of you had any. It was his attitude that put him on the payroll instead of you. Attitude, son A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E. He wanted that job badly enough to shuck the leather jacket, get a haircut, and look in the phone book to find out what this company makes. He did his best to impress me. That's where he edged you out. You see, Kid, people who hire people aren't "with" a lot of things. We know more about Big than about Ringo, and we have some Stone-Age ideas about who owes whom a living. Maybe that makes us prehistoric, but there's nothing wrong about the checks we sign, and if you want one you'd better tune to our wave length. Ever hear of "empathy?" It's the trick of seeing the other fellow's side of things. I couldn't have cared less that you're behind in your car payments. That's your problem, and President Nixon's.

You'll be head and shoulders over the rest. * Look Kid: The only time jobs grew on trees was while most of the manpower was wearing G.L's and pulling K.P. For all the rest of history you've had to get a job like you get a girl: "Case" the situation, wear a clean shirt, and try to appear reasonably willing. .. Maybe jobs aren't as plentiful right now, but a lot of us can remember when master craftsmen walked the streets. By comparison you don't know the meaning of "scarce."You may not believe it, but all around you employers are look ing for young men smart enough to go after a job in the old- fashioned way. When they find one, they can't wait to unload some of their worries on him. For both our sakes, get eager, will you? Success Motivation Institute, Waco, Texas WASHINGTON MARCH OF EVENTS- SEN JACKSON A QUESTION AS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE SENATOR'S HAWKISH ASPECT DOESN'T HELP.HIS CHANCES Hanry Jackson Presidential prospects are nil Our Newsletter mailing list has come from several sources and excuse us for any duplications. We certainly appreciate the cooperation we are getting from the residents of the Fifth District in helping us to eliminate these duplications. Write Congressman HilUf 1510 Longworth Building Washington, D.C. 20515 By HENRY CATHCART Central Press Washington Correspondent W ASHINGTON—Nothing so clearly Illustrates how far to the left the Democratic Party has drifted, in the last decade than the next-to-non-existent presidential prospects of Washing-, ton Sen. Henry M. Jackson. When John F. Kennedy won his party's presidential nomination in 1960, he immediately tapped Jackson, as Democratic national chairman. So high was' Jackson's standing with the late President that he was said to have been Kennedy's personal choice for vice president— •a nomination that went to Lyndon Johnson for political reasons. Today Jackson's politics .differ little from his positions ten years ago. He is a liberal on- clvil rights and domestic affairs in general. He is a hard-line anti-Communist in foreign affairs in a manner not unlike John Kennedy. Knowledgable White House sources say '• Jackson Is thought there to. be the strongest presidential candidate the Democrats could nominate. George Meany, the old-line president of the AFL-CIO, is urging Jackson to get into the '72 presidential race. Certainly, no Democratic presidential possibility could bring to the party" more southern support while maintaining a genuinely liberal stance on civil rights. .».•••"'•'" • SUM CHANCE FOR DEM NOMINATION—Still, Jackson has little chance of winning the nomination—even if he campaigned hard for the job. The reason: He has yet to denounce the war in Southeast Asia and he has voted, indeed he has led the fight, for appropriations for such defense programs as the AMB missile system. Because of his positions in foreign affairs, Jackson would be the decided underdog in any presidential primary. The facta of political life are that in nearly every, non-southern state, registered Democrats are far more liberal than a cross section of the general population. Party leaders are often even further to the' left. (Most political analysts doubt' a candidate could win the nomination in '72 unless he first makes a strong showing in the primaries.) \. <•.•••_', . It is just as less likely that Jackson could emerge as a compromise dark horse candidate at the convention. If party liberals -were displeased with Hubert Humphrey in 1968, they would be enraged over the nomination of Jackson next year. Unless there Is a radical change 1 in American politics in the next two years, Jackson's nomination would prompt a major walkout at a Democratic convention ..(something party pros would be sure to'avoid) and would assure the entrance of a strong third party candidate into the race. NOTED ANDPASSED EDITOR'S NOTE; This is the first .of four articles providing a detailed look at America's National Parks and how, in the 1970s,, they are imperiled by overcrowding, overuse and man-made pollution. V By JOHN LEIGHTY United Press International From sea to shining sea, millions of Americans will be swarming again this year to the country's national parks to enjoy the "outdoorlexperience," to get back for a little while to mother nature. I For ' many, having fought waves of traffic jonly to find wall-to-wall campers, jammed roads and litter-stewn forest grounds, it may i be a mixed joy.' •'•["••• • Today, the 35 national parks -and 243 . recreational and historical areas administered by the National Park Service (NPS). are facing an unprecedented era of popularity and pressure. j Men who run them and people who visit them have basically the same goals—to preserve the beauty of natural areas for future generations while • providing; a camping, vacation and recreational retreat for the travelers of today.

Crackdown:' i News'leaking out of Cuba reveals that the iron fist is being tightened around the throats of the workingpeople. New laws have been passed which stipulate that any able-bodied male of working age who refuses to work for the government (the only, employer under Communism),or who is absent irom work for 15 days invites arrest and conviction of up to twio years at forced labor. It is obvious ihat the "carrot," in the form of promisesby the Communists lor a better life, has lost its appeal; hence, the dictatorship, now uses the club. ' : j . But the population explosion and the !20th century are fast closing in on these last islands of the j once vast American wilderness. Crowds,] smog, pollution, litter and crime strain the park system,! .which is responding with ; higher entrance fees, restrictive,camping measure] more traffic control, -alternate; transportation systems | and law 'enforcement training for rangers. More ^than 175 million visits were recorded in 1970 to the 30 million acres of national park serviceland, most of it during the summer months, and officials! predict J400 million visits will be reached by. 1980, only nine years away* . Many camping grounds have, in fact-; become "just wall to wall tents," said an Interior ' Department spokesman in Washington. This holds especially true for the. older, more publicized parks ' such as •Yosemije, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and the Great Smoky Mountains. Pressure on the . national parks could be relieved, many experts! agree, by | the development J 'of• more 'recreational areas I near the big . urban , centers-^ a plan endorsed heartily by former Interior Secretary Walter Hickel— and by expansion of state park,systems and outdoor facilities. 1 "There are going to have to be new and innovative ways' to use the'parks," DanielJ. Tobin Jr., associate director, of the NPS Western region, told UPf. "The conflict of more users and STAN$ IN A FIX? — Sen.

Tobin said certain sections of parks will ultimately have to be designated as wilderness by Congress and these areas set aside to insure there will be no . "major man-made intrusions." In these' specific areas man will still "be able to use the wilderness on its own terms," Tobin said. Hiking on trails or sleeping on the ground would be permitted, but "you'd have to carry out what is carried in." • The real collision comes in opening parks to recreational use such as boating, water skiing, tennis and other physical activities, Tobin said; "These are going to have to be taken closer to where the people are," ehe said, adding that undeveloped lands near cities will have to be opened to the spill'of people in the urban environment for precisely this type of "pouring off the steam" recreation. Relief Valve "We hope this 'will serve as the relief valve and keep people near their homes to expend this energy and that they will do a little more careful planning and make that trip to national parks a special one," said Tobin. A national study is currently underway by the NPS into the practicality of shifting concessions, lodges and parking lots outside of park • boundaries. Some parks either have or are planning a campsite reservation system. Despite, the gloomy picture, the nation's parks still offer the outdoor enthusiast enough wilderness country where there is a chance to get away from it all. Hiking into the back country, back-packing along little used trails, visiting the remoter, less accessible park and recreation. al areas, one can find solitude in nature. But,, for the .majority of travelers, the "outdoor experience" is little. more than a drive to swarming campsites, an. occasional stop at an . overlook, a picnic at designated areas ammend to acpacity and the slow, slow movement of traffic. It isn't Math, History or English. But it's just as basic, j To earn a living, he needs the old fundamentals. To keep on living, he must learn the right way to drive. Yet only one out of three high school students takes a driver education course. Too bad. Automobile accidents are the number one killer of American teenagers. '' ' i How important is driver education? Well, it's important enough that trained drivers have 50% fewer accidents and traffic violations. Important enough that many insurance;companies offer lower rates for teenagers who have completed'driver training. And important enough that new car dealers across the'nation loan 34,000 automobiles every year to our public schools for driver training. It's your responsibility to help make sure your teenager takes the proper subjects in school. So make sure driver education is one of them. Where it]s not available, we suggest that you consider a good private driving school: When" it ponies to preparation for liv- irg, learning how to drive safely really is basic.
