Liquor Last December was the best sales month in the 33-year history of the state liquor ar.d beer control department. Holland Gallagher, director of the department, reports sales of SI 1.9 million, an increase of SI.8 million over December of 1971, the previous best month for liquor sales. Minerals Iowa's mineral production value reached another all-time high of $136 million in 1&72, surpassing the record set in the preceding year by S8 million. Substantial increases in values of Portland Cement, coal and gypsum and slight increases in all other commodities accounted for the record production.

ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, MOX., JAN. 29, 1973 Page 4 By Hal Boyle The Egg Came First NEW YORK AP — Things a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: High school pupOs may puzzle over which came first — the chicken or the egg. But scientists don't. They know the egg came first. Because birds themselves developed from reptile creatures that were laying eggs millions of years before the first bird existed on earth. Should you make out a will, even though you have only a small estate? Yes, indeed. For even though it is small, court action may keep it from your heirs for as long as three years — if you leave no will. How long should your sofas and stuffed chairs last? A national survey indicated that most American families believe such furniture needs to be replaced about every 7 to 10 years. My mother once kept a sofa for 30 years, however, having it redone from time to time, and some of the children protested when she finally got rid of it. If a government check for a member of your family arrives after his death, it's illegal for you to cash it. The check should be sent back to the government agency that issued it, along with infor- BY Don Oakley Peace Is Different This Time The immense private thankfulness felt by Americans at the coming of peace in Vietnam only serves to underscore the absence of public celebration. Saturday, Jan. 27, 1973, will not be remembered as "W Day"—Victory in Vietnam Day—the way we proclaimed VE Day and VJ Day in World War II or Armistice Day in World War I. The Vietnam war was just not that kind of war; the world is not that kind of world any more. Americans will never again experience the crazy ex- hileration and joy that drove them into the streets in the spring and summer of 1945 vhen the news came that the last Nazis had surrendered and later that the Japanese empire had capitulated. It was Korea that taught us this in 1950-53. The war there never really had a definite end; nothing was really definitely settled. In fact, the war was never really declared. Like Vietnam, the fighting, continued unabated while the peace negotiations dragged.on endlessly.. - Yet even Korea was different from Vietnam. There was no withdrawal of American troops prior to a cease-fire, no disengagement of them from ground combat. Most differently of all, there were no peace demonstrations at home, no moves in Congress to cut off funds for the war. What opposition there was centered on the fact that the war was not being fought to victory, not that America had involved herself in an attempt to stop Communist aggression in a far-off Asian land. But Korea gave us new definitions of "victory" or "peace." No longer did it mean that your troops paraded down the streets of the enemy's capital, merely that the enemy's troops did not parade down your streets, or those of your ally. That was the most you could settle for. Even today, 50,000 American troops guard the 38th parallel in Korea, which tens of thousands of men died trying to obliterate and other tens of thousands gave their lives to defend. There will, thankfully, be no American troops in Vietnam or elsewhere in old Indochina, according to the peace terms hammered out in Paris—though no doubt Thailand will now become an even more important military base. But neither, unfortunately, will there be a clear demarcation line as in Korea. A map of South Vietnam shows a complex pattern of Viet Cong-held areas scattered among those controlled by Saigon. At tremendous cost last year, North Vietnam seized and still holds the north ern provinces of South Vietnam. We have really traded the war now ending for the war that existed long before the first American combat soldier arrived. America is out of it at last, in a direct military sense, but the struggle of the Vietnamese people continues and we can expect to hear constant charges of cease-fire violations by one side against the other. What really dampens any temptation to celebrate is the fact that the most fundamental question of all is unanswered: Was it worth the sacrifice of more than 45,000 American boys and some $200 billion of our treasure and the ravaging of so much of the very land we were defending? Some will say yes without hesitation, even if, as others predict, it is only a matter of time before the northern Communists take over the south. America tried to defend freedom. Whether or not it was a hopeless or mistaken cause, we tried. Many will now try to forget Vietnam. But 45,000 young lives cut short will never let America forget it. Silence Gets to Be Golden British Overseas Airways employes at London's Heathrow Airport have struck, or plan to strike, a blow for the sanity of people everywhere. The workers have threatened to walk out for one hour on February 1. if "intolerable" canned music in the terminal is not switched off by then. Letters to British newspapers complaining about "pined-in pollution" indicate that the traveling public will support the strike. Maybe it ought to be declared worldwide. Do we really need the incessant undertone—and sometimes not such an undertone—of bland, monotonous music in terminals, in stores, in restaurants and banks and the like? It's supposed to have an unobtrusively relaxing and nerve-calming effect. But when it gets to the point where it is simply ear pollution, the time has come to holler "Stop the music!" (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.) UlUHtt mat ion about the death. The government agency then will decide, what portion of the check, if any, should be sent to survivors. Qutotable notables: "I shall never permit myself to stoop so low as to hate any man." — Booker T. Washington, Negro educatior and leader. The downward dollar: Anyone with any sense today is worried about inflation, which has ranged between 1.1 and 5.9 per cent yearly over the last 10 years. Just what does inflation cost us? Well, if we have an annual inflation of 2 per cent for the next 10 years, the present 1973 dollar will be worth 82 cents in 1983; if the annual rate is 4 per cent, it will be worth 67 cents; if the annual rate is 6 per cent, the 1983 dollar will be worth only 54 cents. Safety slogan: "Never have one for the road if you've already had too many for the primrose path." Startling statistic: One out of every 40 infants now born in New York City is already a heroin addict at birth. It was Sydney Smith who observed, "One evil in old age is that . . . you think every little illness is the beginning of the end. When a man expects to be arrested, every knock at the door is an alarm." Today in Hisfory BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Monday, Jan. 29, the 29th day of 1973. There are 336 days left in the year. Today's highlight in history: On this date in 1949, Britain granted de facto recognition to the new State of Israel. Ten years ago: The dean of American poets, Robert Frost, died in Boston at the age of 88. Five years ago: An investigation was begun at the Cummins Prison Farm in Arkansas after the discovery of three skeletons in unmarked graves. One year ago: An FBI agent at Kennedy Airport at New York, shot and killed a hijacker who had commandeered a plane en route from Los Angeles. Today's birthdays: Actor Fritz Weaver is 47. Actor Victor Mature is 57. Actor John Forsythe is 55. Thought for today: Words are the most powerful drug used by mankind— Rudyard Kipling, English writer, 1865-1936. SGT. STUPES...
