1-Alflono (la.) Upper D*< , $*pt. 27, 1966 Tt ATTPSGE IF TRUE, IT'S OUTRAGEOUS Senator Stephen M. Young (Dem.-Ohio) hat charged that the United States It footing the bill for a $2 million, 200-room palace in Saigon for South Vietnamete premier Ky. Senator Young »ay* that nobody yet hai been told what it it to be cued for, and he would like to know. Coming from a United State* Senator, this revelation if to be considered as probably the truth. To date, his is the only statement made on the subject, however. There are 100 fountains included In the construction, Senator Young adds. If Senator Young's statement Is true, the American people have a right to know — and at once — just who is responsible for such an expenditure in Saigon. Just recently, there was quite a furore over a $750,000 sum authorized by Congress to build a residence for future vice presidents, on 10 acres of land owned, by the U.S. government. At a time when U.S. troops are carrying the military load, and U.S. taxpayers the financial load, In our venture In South Viet Nam, there are very few who can find much sense In building a $2 million castle there for anyone. And the American public Is entitled to know how It all came about. If It Isn't the truth, we should also be told, and at once. IMPROVING THE RIVER The recent aerial survey of the east fork of the Des Molnes river, as It meander* through Kossuth County, brought some Interesting recommendations from the State Conservation Commission, and the prospects of a general improvement for the public good along the river itself. We have no Illusions that the east fork will ever again see steamboat travel, from Algona north, as It did some 60 to 70 years ago, but It can become a stream of beauty, reasonably good fishing, and a public recreation area along its banks if there Is a follow-up to the several proposals. And ba'sically, it would not take any good farm land out of production. The existing low-level dams built some years ago along the stream just north of Algona were found to have done a good job. They have held a water level, and made a stream look like a river. Farther north, where no such dams exist, the river deteriorates Into not much of anything. The state proposal is to build or aid in building several more such dams, to Improve the shoreline, and to stock the river further (some stocking was done this summer) for future fishing. Conservation and improved use of water Is a major national problem, today. At our front door, we have an opportunity to see that a little of It Is done right at home. 3lpp*r fficB HIE. Call Street-Ph. 295-3535-AJgon«, Iowa Zip Code WB11 Issued Tuesday and Thursday by THE UPPER DES MOINES PUBLISHING CO, APOSTLE OF DISCORD? Orundy Center Register - Farm Bureau National President, Charles Shuman, passes out his criticism against groups and individuals of whom he doesn't approve. His pet peeve has been against the farm policy of the federal administration since he and former Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Benson tried to set up farm policy. Shuman's latest target against a group is against the National Council of Churches. In a late Shuman article published in the Nations Agriculture, Shuman calls the NCC "An Apostle of Discord." He accuses the NCC of working under the banner of social justice. In other words he is for social justice so long as nobody does anything about it. Churches for the past many years have stood on the sidelines of the battle for social justice, and it is high time they are taking a hand, R. B.

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON .REQUEST PEACE OFFICERS HANDCUFFED Eagle Orove Eagle — We have always believed in Individual rights and freedom but things have reached the point of being ridiculous. The particular case we have In mind It where some minors In possession of beer were arrested by a peace officer. When he took them to court the case was thrown out because the judge ruled that when the officer stopped the youths he violated their constitutional rights when he asked them their ages. This puts a peace officer In an Impossible situation and robs the public, you and your family, your neighbor and his family, of the right to be protected by the peace officer. We give the paece officer a badge, show him the laws and tell him to go out and enforce them. Then 'we tie his hands and feet with technicalities and criticize him for not doing the job we are paying him to do. As It Is now he is virtually hamstrung as he tries to do his job. Some groups are clamoring for more rights and freedom and, in many cases, rightfully so. The Ironic part is that each time they get their wishes it automatically applies to all of society, including the habitual criminal and the occasional lawbreaker. The habitual criminal and those of the younger generation who like to flaunt the law and the police are quick to take' advantage of such situations and make full use of them. The police have to play by a set of rules which keep getting tougher while the criminal has no rule except to win. As per usual the public, you, are the loser. If the police cannot convict a law-breaker because of technicalities we cannot expect them to protect u* from him, whether he be a drunken driver (adult or juvenile) or a burglar breaking into your home or business. Whose rights are transgressing whose? SQUELCHING DISORDERS Indlanola Tribune — Des Molnei officials are to be commended for the way they have moved towards preventing re-occurances of the street rowdyism and vandalism that "took place last week. Realizing that almost all citizens deplore the type of lawlessness and hoodlumlsm shown by a group of young people, the Des Molnes police moved quickly to gain the support of all areas of the community In an effort to control or prevent future outbreaks. Although the troublemakers were the most part Negro, prominent leaders In the Negro community were loud and clear In the condemnation of the disturbances. This was not a race riot, but In many cities It might have developed Into |ust that. Now, with two dozen or more of the leaders of the rampage either under arrest or facing charges, young people of the area, regardless of race or color, are going to think twice before getting out of line with the law. With racial tensions throughout the country at a new high, authorities in many cities might have been afraid to move in on the ringleaders of a disorder such as Des Moines did. Had no action been taken, It would have been an open invitation for more, end perhaps bigger, occurances. We think the situation In our capital city was handled in a manner that could well be copied by a lot of the cities of the north. For And About Teenagers) THE WEEK'S LETTER: "I have a problem. About a year ago, a boy moved to the neighborhood. I did not like him because he was "nasty " to his mother and sisters. I had known him for a month when he began to like me. I discouraged him. Now, he has changed and I like him. But, he doesn't like me. I have tried to forget him, but this is hard to do, since his sister and I are good friends. What should I do? I can't talk to him. He is bashful and so am I." u OUR REPLY: A "bashful- boy is not nice to his mother and his sisters? Are you sure thut it U not your opinion that has changed and not the boy? It is quite possible that you were mistaken In your first impression that he was "nasty* to HE I* &A4HFUU ANP SO AMI.,. his mother and sisters. You became friends with one of the sisters and were perhaps Influenced by some things she said. There is a certain amount of "argufying* that goes on among children in the happiest of families. Yet, these children, if properly guided at home, mind their manners in public. You have no reason to be bashful. You can certainly be .friendly to a boy who lives in the neighborhood without being forward. And, if you were wrong, in your first Impression of the boy, you will certainly not make him mad if you tell him thatyou were. t y«u havf « iMiwf« prvWtm y«« «r»nl to tflKVit, or ,n obtrvgtton !« matt. aM'Wi y«v l*M*r l» FOI AND AIOUI TIfNAOHS.

Government reports that more than 35,000 couples past age 65 are now marrying every year, and that the number Is growing. Five years ago many of these people had spouses, sitting on the sofa next to them as your spouse may be sitting now. The blueprint comes from John Y. Watson, 68, a widower for four years, and his bride o: five months, Eugenia Watson, 66, a widow for five years. Both owned homes at the time of their marriage. Both have now sold them. They live in a trailer parked in a tree-shrouded park In the Southland. Mr. and Mrs. Watson obviously are happy. But they aren't silly about it. They have a quiet, pleasant, companionable marriage. Not a cute one, Out of their experience together they have formulated the following points which they believe will make a good retirement marriage; 1. The older couple must un derstand that for them marriage is not a Something-Borrowed — Something-Blue affair. It is for companionship, which means both somebody to talk to and the security a house companion gives you, and it is for economy. "Together, we are living for about 60 per cent of what the two of us spent living separately," according to Mr. Watson. 2. The older couple should have a wedding ceremony and invite all their friends. Not to solicit gifts, not for their own vanity. But for the friends. Who will love It And who will remember it from here on with parties and letters. 3. The older couple, before marrying, should go to their individual doctors, tell their plans, and get a full report on their physical condition. Thereupon they should tell each other what the doctors said, so that a case of arthritis or a backache some midnight won't come as a shock. 4. The older couple should deal very carefully, but firmly, with any children each might have. "You mustn't ask the children, " says Mrs. Watson. "You must tell them. There's npthing dishonorable in older people marrying. There's nothing disrespectful to the children's deceased- Mother or Father if older people want companionship again. It may be necessary to point this out, but it is unwise to get into a discussion over whether there- marriage is right or wrong. This is your decision, not the children's." 5. With regard to the children, it is wise to give them some re^ assurance that somebody is not marrying you to get "Daddy's Money" or "The money Mother helped you make." 6. The older couple, before remarrying, should check every Form of income they have to make sure it will not be endangered by a remarriage. Women are penalized somewhat on Social Security if they remarry, but can lose every thing on some pension and some life insurance benefits. 7. The older couple should agree, before marriage, that each wUl contribute,' from each's In- :ome, a proportionate amount of t to the household budget. But hat each will have theiameium for personal spending money. « *. OOpIN «AM »fc In c«ln I W CROSSWORD PUZZLE LAST WEEKS ANSWE* — ACROSS 1. System of wtifthti 5. Chfti*. for one 0.
