RI^MBR WASHINGTON (IJPl) - The sight of American 1»0W« striding proudly from the >I «nel which brdUght them to reedom warmed the hearts of millions whe witnessed it. on television. n Window "I have just never been as proud to be an American as when those men came back," President Nixon said recently, recalling his own emotions at the homecoming, "When ynu think of what these men have gone through- years of confinement, several of them over four' years in solitary without ever seeing an American, seeing only their captors in thdt pl^riod —and then to see them come down off those planes —thin, yes, but standing so strong and tall saluting the American Flag." To Nixon the return of the prisoners of war has become the symbol of the rightness of his Vietnam policies over the past four and a half years. One of them visited him in his White House office, Nixon said, and "told me 'Mr. President, we wouldn't have been standing like that if you had made the kind of deal that some had suggested which was give us our prisoners and In return We will get out because our slogan in that prison camp in Hanoi was "home with honor.' "And I want you to know these men couldn't have come back—and I say this as a statement of fact—unless we had had the support from many in this room and those you represent across the country." Nixon made his remarks to the National Conference of Building and Construction Trades, a 3.5 million member group which generally supported his Vietnam policies. From the ranks of this organization came the hard hats who staged a march in New York City in support of his policies in May, 1970 during the Cambodian incursion. This had been a hard time for him, Nixon said, because he knew the Cambodian decision was an unpopular one. So were the decisions of last May to mine Haiphong's harbors and the decision of last Decemiier 18 to resume bombing in the Hanoi region when the peace talks were so near agreement. "What I am simply saying is this: Had it not been for those hard decisions, had it not been for what We did in Cambodia ... our prisoners of war would still be in Hanoi." Convinced that his earlier policies have been viiMHcaltfi, Nixon now is faced with simHir tough decisions cautett by IN breakdown in the Vietnam peace agreement. Accerding to his aides, his response wil^ be measured but firm. • They say U.S. bombinf t^s have been resumed in Om- bodia and Laos l)ecauae'ibe blatant cease - fire violates have occurred in these cowi- tries. But they also predict that if the situation worsens in S^th Vietnam. U.S. air strikt also will be resumed there. In Hospital Miss Margaret Wilklns, 915 W.

CLARK DRUG 1440 N. Henderson 342-4169 Dear Penny, I am a teen-age girl from a nearby small (own. I have done a considerable amount of babysitting the last few yean, and I have noticed that the price for babyiHting never in- creasei. Almost everyone still pays 50 cents an hour. Would yon please Inform people that prioea are going up for teen*agera as well as for'adults? I think babyaltteri ahould get at least 75 cents an honr if not |1 an honr, considering eome of the thhigi we have to go through. IVhat do you ftink? Broke Dear Brolce, I agree with you completely. A competent babysitter that parents can trust is worth a lot more than 50 cents an hour> I have a suggestion for you. Set a scale for various jobs you do while babysitting. Start with a flat fee for plain old babysitting before midnight. When you think it over, you may want to leave that figure at 50 cents, or you may want to up it a bit. Now set prices for all the additional things babysitters arc so often asked to do. Charge an additional 10 cents an hour for each additional child you have to watch. Add a quarter an hour for babysitting after midnight. Add $1 for doing dishes if you are requested to do them. If you are asked to do any other household chores, set a rate of pay for each of them. Send your regular customers a card noting your new scale, setting down each figure clearly. Be sure to tell once-in-awhile customers or new ones what your fees are before you sit for the first time. If you have been ii good babysitter—and fm sure you have —I don't believe your customers will think you're unreasonable at all. Dear Penny, I don't like to gripe or complain, but after trying to win Radio Roulette since it's been on the air—sometime in January— I was wondering how some of the rest of the players feel about the greedy, time-aftcr-time winners. Sbme people can ruin anything. You would think after, winning twice or three times, they would feel happy and give someone else half a chance. Not true. I called the station, but he said they must have a quicker line to the station. Could this be true? They did finally disqualify these winners from winning more than once every seven days. Hearing these same names every week gets under my skin. I say give someone else a chance, and don 't be so greedy. Unlucky Dear Unlucky, I am not familiar with the game you mention, so I don't know the rules for playing and winning. While I doubt that some phone lines function more quickly than others, I have heard of people who play phone-in games who dial all but the last digit of a phone number in advance so when they get the answer, they liave a jump on the other players. If the station people have revised its rules to make players eligible to win only once a week, it seems to me they have done the best they can,do. To rule out players after a single win would not only cut down on the number of potential players, it would create monumental booking problems keeping up with who had won and who was eligible to win. Dear Penny, Ylhat are our grocery stores gettbig to be? Grocery stores or llqnor stores? A child can take a grocery list to be filled—deluding liquor—and it can be readily filled. Is It not contrary to law to cater to a minor? Would we send our children to a tavern for groceries? Henry Teetotaler Dear Henry, The law says that a dealer may not sell liquor to a minor. It does NOT say a minor can buy liquor in an establishment other than a tavern, and any person who sells liquor to a minor, buys it for him or furnishes it to hun is in violation of the law, You should call this to the attention of your grocer. Thinking of you ... Penny BEEF PRICES TOO HIGH? C0A4PARED TO WHAT? ? Ye«, food prices have risen thi» year, as much or more than most consumer goods. BUT . . . THEY NEEDED TO COME UPl This week choice beef brought the farmer $46 to $48 per CWT. * If beef prices had risen as much as lit CLASS POSTAGE since 1950, the farmer would have received $77 CWT this week. * If beef prices had risen as much as HOSPITAL COSTS since 1950 . . . beef prices would have .been $135.36 CWT this week. -k Compared to the rise in WAGES since 1950 beef would be selling on the hoof for $80.69 this week. * Compared to the price of NEW MEDIUM SIZED CAR beef would have to sell for $68.80 this week. Food prices paid to farmers hava risen on averago of 11% In tbo last 20 years. Their averago costs have risen The American housewife spends a smaller percentage of the family's take home pay than other housewives In the world for consumable food. Food prices too high? Compared to the rest of the economy . . . NOT AT ALL.
