Golesburg Register-Mai 1, Gqlesburg, 111, Thursday, June 28, 1973 9 PROPER INTEREST - A youngster shows proper interest at an art exhibit of utilitarian art at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris. NEA Security Cost Explanations Very Simple By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI) - Disclosure that the federal govern- irrant has paid aboiiit $1.3 million for improvements to President Nixon's homes in California and Florida has generated a new outbreak of tush-tushing among admini9tra tion 'critics. The Lighter Side The fact that the improve menits were requested by the Secret Service for security purposes appears to have made little impression on those deploring the expenditures. "Here's a $1,950 'item for pruning trees," my friend Ernie Spadecaller pointed out as he was looking over the list of bills ibhe government paid at San demente. "How could that have anything to do with security?" I said, "Ernie, you obviously have little or no concept of what security for the President entails. Pruning a Responsibility "It very definitely is one of the responsibilities of the Secret Service to protect the President from falling tree limbs. That can only be done by pruning the dead wood." "Okay," Spadecaller said, "let's assume that was a legitimate expenditure. But how about this $523 for repairing the gazebo?" "Ernie," I said, "you couldn't balieve the pitfalls that await a President in a dilapidated gazebo." "What's so dangerous about a little tin musical instrument?" "You aire thinking about a kazoo," I said. "A gazebo is an open air summerhouse. If you don't keep those things fixed up, you're courting disaster." Denied his Utitte triumph, Spadecaller became sullen, Ho scanned the list in silence a few minutes, then pounced again. What About That? "Aha! What about this $476 for painting the flagpole?" "It's reassuring to learn the Secret Service was alert to that hazard," I said "An unpainted flagpole could quickly rust In the salt air and, thus weakened, topple over on the President as he was raising the colors." Spadecaller sulked several tnlnutes longer, then said, "I suppose you can rationalize a security angle for this $460 bill for fertilizer, loo?" "Yes, Indeed. You certainly wouldn't want the President to be bitten by a tsetse fly. One way to help prevent that is to cover the property with Venus'-flytraps. Those plants need a lot of fertilizer." "Hut there aren 't any tsetse flies in southern California," Spadecaller protested. J said, "That prow;:,' the security .system i.s working. That $400 was money well spent," ! MAIN AT SEMINARY E. O.
