MORRISON In Natchez, the mood ci the cdmmunity is one of optimism, perhaps the brightest picture since before the Civil Natch**, Miss.

Seventh In a Series the economy of this Deep South city is booming, new chain stores and restaurants are opening like flowers in the spring, money is flowing, jobs are more plentiful, racial problems are almost nonexistent. Watergate? Tlie reaction ranges from appalling to ho- hum. Generally, many people feel there's simply too much politics involved in the Waiter- gate scandal. It's happened before, they feel, v only this time someone got caught. SURE WATERGATE is a scandal but most people don't feel President Nixon is involved. Besides, what's wrong' with a bit of poltttott chtean- try when the war m Vietnam has wound down for American sokUers, the draft has ended, money is more plenti* Ml. Soaring prices are of greater concern than Watergate, anyway. It's a daily Journey into wonderland whin you enter the food store. Meat prices are beyond comprehension. Steak? No thanks. Yet the same housewife will pick up a frozen dinner and other precooked foods, all of which she could save money on by doing her own cooking. convenience nwus are in. Why stave over a hot stove when it's easier, and quicker, to either cook ' something quickly or, better yet, scoot over to the local hamburger or chicken restaurant and firing it home to eat? Flooding of the Mississippi River in this area of the country has caused some consider* able heartache — particularly across the river )A Louisiana. Morality in Natchez is at a high point. Sure, there are seme drugs floating around, but generally speaking the youth of the area are well thought of and have contributed to the welfare of the community. ONE SUCH youth group is called "Just Us." It's a group of students from South Natchez-Adams High School who started out as a local patriotic singing group, their fame spread quickly and now they have traveled widely in the two years since their inception, spreading the word that the youth of Natchez believe in America. There are problems in the Natchez area, it's true, but the mood of the people is at a high level. The city has a young, progressive mayor. A progressive, Mack alderman was elected last year by a 3-2 margin — the very same margin which elected the white mayor. Natche2, is a part of the revitalized current of feeling sweeping the Deep South. Mississippi has a story to tell. It's people are no longer 50th. And Natchez, the state's oldest city, bubbles with new optimism. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

List- The beaches along the river Plate were inviting, and under Uruguay's advanced (welfare state system, a man could retire at 55. On June 27, Uruguayans were handed the tab. Military Presstare Under pressure of the military, 44-year-old President Juan Maria Bordaberry abolished congress and established a 20- member council of state which would oversee the president's activities and do the work of the congress. A presidential declaration said there had been a "grave deterioration" of constitutional rule and attributed the crisis to "the criminal actions of the conspiracy against the country, aligned with the complacency of political groups without national spirit." It ended constitutional government in Uruguay for the first time in 40 years. Forty years ago in the midst of another economic crisis brought on by the worldwide depression, President Gabriel Terra seized power with the aid of the Montevideo fire brigade and established one-man rule. A new constitution in 1951 resembled the Swiss system In that it vested power in bipartisan national council with a weak, rotating presidency. In part, at least, it was designed to make sure Uruguay would have no more Terras. For the politicians, the new system proved a vast boondog gle. Government payrolls swell ed and corruption became com monplace. Among many in Uruguay the thinly disguised military take over will not be unwelcome and will be accepted as a symbol of hope.
