NATION OF IDEALISTS Americans often endeavor to present an outward appearance of being rough and tough, and worldly In all ways, but underneath we are really pretty much Idealists, and not toe rough and tough at all. Most Americans have a pretty soft heart, if you look long enough. That, perhaps, is one of our weaknesses. It It this idealism that has led us to try to please the world, often with the reverse effect. W* tr.y to feed distant millions, we fight to defend lest fortunate segments of mankind, we loan money left and right to emerging nations as well as nations who have had a lot more years than ourselves to get their economics on a sound basis. All of these things we do because we're basically pretty good people with soft hearts. We don't want to lose our ideajism, to be sure, but there are times when it seems that perhaps a little more realistic approach to the world and a little less Idealism might be beneficial for ourselves - and sometimes it isn't a bad idea to think of ourselves, and less about doing good all over the world. * * * SPLINTER PARTIES If there was any question as to the fact that we are in the middle of a considerable change in thinking, in many ways, In this country, It is proved by the fact that there are so many splinter parties In the field this election. Nearly every state in the union has one or more candidates running on tickets on a national level with names unheard of before. If this indicates anything, it evidently is that neither of the major parties can entirely satisfy groups here and there in their candidates or platforms. After this election is over It might be a good Idea for each of the major parties to do a little self-examination. Each has campaigned pretty much In the same manner and with the same methods that have been used in elections for many a year. Perhaps the nation is ready for a more enlightened approach to political campaigns In general. Sometimes the splinter parties have some good ideas. It wasn't too long ago that Social Security was being advocated only by what the conservatives considered wild-eyed radicals and splinter party candidates. Look at us now ! HIE.

However, if you are retired and if you want to have some fun, here's an Idea you migh use: In one of the more pleasan of the Southland towns (which is already having trouble enough without seeing its name publicized) things had gone along peacefully for years. Untr a fellow named Walter J, Gregory, who had been a peaceful citizen for years, retired. The town hasn't been the same since. Mr. Gregory, with nothing much to do except sit in the town's major park, came to the conclusion that the small lake in the park ought to have a swan. He talked to City Hall about it, said he'd buy the swan and donate it to the park. City Hall wasn't exactly panting to become nursemaid to any swan. It gave Mr. Gregory the brush-off, He tried twice more. The same results. "So I went ahead and bought my swan," he say*. "And I marched down to the lake and put him in. I resolved that his name would be Tension' . . Then, every morning and every evening Mr. Gregory walked over to the lake to feed his pet. But in less than a week he was being shouldered aside by other citizens who had discovered the beautiful bird and were also bringing food. There was some commotion now around the lake. People were talking. Somebody at City Hall remembered a nut named Gregory who wanted to give it a swan. A policeman came calling on , Mr. Gregory. What did he think he was doing? Mr. Gregory allowed he was doing what he wanted to do. There were words. The policeman declared he'd g ive Mr. Gregory a ticket Mr. regory wanted to know what for. Which was a good question. The policeman finally decided it was for "Defacing Public Property." , "The next morning I wrote City Hall that I was employing a lawyer, that I would demand a jury trial on the charge against me. And that somebody was going to look pretty silly when they tried to argue a beautiful swan was defacing a town lake ..." Mr. Gregory then told his. local newspaper, which printed his story in detail. Then came the television news crews. Then the next Sunday about a thousand citizens to see the swan that was going to put Mr. Gregory on trial. As City Hall tried to retreat Tom its embarrassment, and as ndignant letters flowed into the ocal newspaper, things went from good to better for Mr. Gre> gory and his swan. There came a proposal that "Pension" needed a love life and a companion. A campaign was started to buy a Pensionetta" for him. A collec- ion box was placed beside the ake for donations. No policeman dared touch it. Mr. Gregory, naturally hosen by the citizens as chairman of this movement, has now bought "Pensionetta." But she and "Pension" aren't getting together. The citizens think she wants privacy. So a second cam- algn is under way to build a mall Island in the lake to give he swans secluded quarters. City Hall thinks it will be able to uild the island, to take over the ceding and care of the birds and does anybody want nything more? For A. GOLDEN YEARS M-p«|* nd SOc In coin (no itempi), to D*»t.
