The national legislature has been traditionally opposed to raising these rates except as a matter of last resort. One reason is that the maite serve an essential public service, are a source of education and enlightenment and so, it is .•iiijued, need not bg self-sUDPortinjr. However, whether or not Congress will agree to the higher postage proposal, there should be no reluctance in doing mmething constructive about the parcel post deficit. The education and en- lightrnent argument does not apply to this service. It is a purely commercial operation, in direct competition with private carriers of parcels on the national, state and regional levels. And it Some lay-offs and some price increases would follow an increase in federal minimum wage from $1 to $1.25 an hour and its extension to retail and service trades, members of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States report. Here are some of their replies to a questionnaire from the National Chamber: A retail farm equipment dealer in Wyoming would raise prices five per cent. A retail grocer in North Dakota would raise one per cent. A department store in California would boost prices two per cent. An auto dealer in Illinois would increase prices five per cent. their ad in the Leader, printed by the Leader.

What does it all add up to? You can answer that question very briefly: More inflation and more unemployment. Yet without a doubt this freshwater tiger is one of the most highly-prized fishes that s\v:ni.s, according to authorities at the Mercury outboard com; •.ny, whose home base at Fond (in Lac.

The little gem gets up and runs with plenty of power for two fishermen in a 34-foot boat, getting them to where they want to go in a hurry. From then on it's up to them JAMES E. BROMWELL SECOND IOWA DISTRICT Now that we have congratulated the Russians and the first hard dissappointment has passed, we can take a long look at the situation. The real issue between ourselves and the Red Dictator is not who can blow the most hardware the highest, but whose system of government is the best for, the most people. Ultimately, we shall overtake him in space just as we out- Sputniked Sputnik. The record has long been made that our form of government is the best for people, a fact which surely continues to concern him more than his rocket thrust should concern us. The rest of the world should consider this: A tyrant who is willing to deprive a needy people to make a grandstand play, no matter how significant the work involved, will be no better for people in the long run than he is in the short hard haul. — B — One of the pleasant things that happened during my visit home last week was the time I spent with some students at Washington High School in Cedar Rapids. The interest of these people in their government is deep, penetrating and well-informed. — B — Since returning, I note that other things have taken priority over the John Birch Society controversy. • Two things are clear at the moment. A combination of radical expression and authority has always been dangerous in a free country. But we must not fall into the trap of thinking all vocal anti-communists to be radical. The John Birch Society is only one manifestation of a nationwide anti-communist sentiment, eager and anxious to move forward in winning the cold war. I believe that as in. the 1930 's the people in sentiment are Creek Bottom.
