a*A!f*ne» (Itt.) Upper DM Molrw tfwrwte*, April 41, wet De$Hlotne$ PROBLEMS OF 20 YEARS That we in the United States have not completely understood the oriental mind is becoming very clear in Viet Nam. We find it hard to understand why our own efforts many thousands of miles from home have failed to gain popular support from the Viet Namese themselves. There are many incidental reasons why anti-American feeling exists, not major points but points just the same, ranging from free spending by Americans, monopolizing of taxis, taking over the best night clubs and the mosl beautiful girls, etc. But we eye just beginning to realize that the reason we lack complete popular support in Viet Nam, boils down to about three major points: 1. The country has experienced 20 long years of war, eight under the French, 12 under the U.S. and is fed up with war and the will to fight. 2. The country is fed up with foreigners on its soil, especially white foreigners among yellow people. 3. We have intervened in a religious controversy and on the side of the "haves" as compared with the "have nets." And whenever an outsider gets mixed up in a religious dispute he winds up with the ill will of both sides. And we are in the middle of Viet Namese civil war, too. No matter how it all started and who started it, the fact remains that we are in a position where the United States cannot win politically on the international front. We can win militarily, if we stay at it long enough, but we'll probably have to occupy the entire nation to do it. It is a breath of fresh air, at least, to have some high officials suggest that we start preparing for the eventuality that we may be asked to leave entirely. And if we are asked, and do leave, let's hope we have learned a small lesson from history. SMALL TOWN ATTRACTION Ortonville (Minn.) Independent — According to the recent Gallup Poll, more people than do would like to live in a small town or on a farm. The survey shows that one-third of the total population in the United States lives in small towns. However, nearly half, 49 c /r, would like to. Small towns are defined as those under 10,000 population. Since 1930, more and more people have been moving from small towns into larger metropolitan areas. Will this trend continue, ' or will we have a shift back to saner and better living? Upper jRoines HIE.

POOR CAMPAIGN ARGUMENT According to a poll taken at o state republican party convention, Robert K. Beck of Centerville appears to have the most support from the "powers-that-be" within the state GOP. And so, when Mr. Beck has campaign talks to give, they are followed with more interest than would be the case of candidates with less party support. The other day at Ottunwa, Mr. Beck took off on Governor Hughes, who will be the democratic nominee without a doubt. That aspects of Governor Hughes term In office should be attacked is not surprising. Like any governor, he Is going to make unpopular decisions or moves, here and there. But Mr. Beck happened to land on one point that Is about as far from being the fault of Governor Hughes as is possible. Mr. Beck lays the blame for the fact that Iowa has not had a great population growth at the door of the governor. He said Iowa has been in a period of population stagnation, and laid the blame for this with the Governor. How Governor Hughes could be responsible for the movement away from rural areas Is not made very clear, and this movement has been responsible for lack of population gain In the state. The cities have gained; the rural areas have not. Yet, Governor Hughes has been Instrumental In vigorous efforts to bring industry Into Iowa, and to gain more business for Industries already here. Two international trips have been made by Iowa business men, as well as smaller expeditions into metropo- Itan areas, seeking more industry and more business for Iowa. Yet the Governor has also been sharply criticized for "being away from his desk" in these very efforts. So we find him blamed for ^failure of Iowa to gain in population on the one hand, and blamed again when he heads delegations visiting other sections of the country and world, in an effort to drum up more industry and more business (and incidentally more population) for the state. But the Governor's shoulders are broad — which is a good thing. Mr. Beck, and other opponents, would do better to search in other areas for things to criticize.
