By MARTIN HAWVER Measure the mood ot Topeka by the actions of its residents. Sales of campers, motorcycles, bicycles, suntan lotions, and Steaks are booming. Eighth In a Series Nearby camping facilities are crowded each weekend. lit appears that Topeka is enjoying boom times. Senate Watergate hearings, ft" , if?" ;«*<' !;•"» nit! July 4th Count of Fatalities Not Near Predicted Mark devaluation of the American dollar abroad, shortages of gasoline, X-rated movies and the high price of food are felt in Topeka, but right now times are good. College students are buying high-priced stereos and homeowners are. battling property taxes and crabgrass. The national crises are (here all right, but Topekans are worrying about those which affect them directly. It seems sensible. Topeka Isn't at ground-zero. And, as much as the chamber of com­ merce hates to admit it, much of the social and industrial change of the megalopolis doesn't find its way to Shaw* nee County. TOPEKA ISN'T the backwater of the nation — it's a home town. Two days last summer some residents thought they saw smog. Many people didn't believe it. Since the San Francisco earthquake, Topeka has been receiving news from both coasts. Washington scandals, Berkeley radicals and New York finance escapades have come and gone, and their effects on Topeka have been negligible. Mary Leonard, a Washburn University student, looking at new swimwear styles in a women's magazine summed it up. "You'll never see a bikini like that in Topeka:" if Boston is renowned for its reserve, so must Topeka be. There is change here, but it is orderly change. Few burning radicals. No change merely for change sake. ; But Topeka is able to react. At times wKh uncertainty, but when trouble strikes, Topeka girds. Forbes Air Force Base will close in September. More than 3,000 paychecks will leave the Topeka area. And Topeka has first crack at everything the Air Force won't carry away. Land to make the baae contiguous to Topeka was an* nexed in a Chinese fire drill­ like city commission meeting. Confusion, yes, but the necessary action was taken. Crises are chosen carefully here. WATERGATE, a joke for one commencement speaker, was used by another to emphasize to high school graduates the speed with which they will be expected to enter the maitMrtream of America. "The first two witnesses in the Senate hearings were only 10 years out of high school," fcrmer Undersecretary of Labor Arthur Fletcher said here. Talk of impeaching President Nixon — even among younger Topekans — is rare until nearly closing time at local taverns. The gasoline shortage, however, is real to Topekans. The success of Kansas farmers at coaxing more than a billion dollars' worth of gtain from their fields affects state taxes, schools, and availability of bank loans for houses and cars. Extension agents in more • ay y Way than 20 counties in northeast Kansas have predicted gasoline shortages at harvest time. Money is at the end of wheat stalks in the fields. National crises? Yes, they ere in Topeka, ton. Discouragement? Less than might be expected. Even in an era of instant communications, Topeka is insulated from many of the nation's troubles. Less insulated than it was 20, or even five years ago, but still not in the mainstream of the nation's political and economic trade. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
