Chattin' With Stoney Our Future Citizens Editorial Comments Governments Role In Local Problems One of the great, continuing Issues of the time in this country has to do with the role the P'vernment plays, or should play, in local problems and affairs. Without coing into all the pros and cons involved, one thing can be said with certainty: "We now )cok to the central government for all manner of services and aids that were totally unknown a comparatively short time ago. And tne cost ,?f these has become staggering over the years. It is argued that only the federal government has the resources to deal effectively with a lengthy list of local difficulties. And it is true that Washington has long pmvided aid and succor when disasters, such as floods and tornadoes, have struck various regions. However, in late times, local governments and local groups have turned almost automatically to Washington and to the federal treasury for troubles that are simply not in the disaster category and that, in a previous era, would have been dealt with at home. The question, of course, is just how necessary federal aid for certain purposes is—and whether or not tiie local community could solve moit cl the local problems if it only tried. A publication of the Chamber cf Commerce of the United States casts a revealing light on the matter. It tells the story of Fort Smith, Arkansas, which, in 1959, became what is known as a "depressed area". Cause of the trouble was the dosing of a major army base on the city's outskirts. The GI's who had spent freely disappeared. With them went a thousand civilian jobs. The area lost 6,000 of its population. Numbers of businesses went to the wall, and for sale and for rent signs appeared in hundreds of dwellings. But Fort Smith did not go hat in hand to Washington for help. Instead, local leaders decided to do the needed job with local energies and There has been many comments both pro and con on the Friday $3.00 Per Year saved's a penny earned' long night opening of the stores in $3.50 Per Year Mnre the sales tax!" Fayette However, we feel that the majority of the people are in favor of this new plan. Practically all of the merchants cooperated by keeping their stores open last Friday night, and in spite of the fact that it was the first night the Main street was crowded with cars. Which more or less proves that the people do like to shop on Friday night, and that they will come to Fayette. We didn't take a count to see resources.

There is no single or simple solution. But the government could help alleviate the situation if a proposed bill for establishing U. S. tourist information offices abroad is approved, and if it made entrance requirements for. foreign travelers more inviting. One reason for the gold drain is foreign spending by U. S- tourists. Dollars, in other words, are turned into pounds, francs, lira, marks, and other currencies. On the other hand, spending in this country by tourists from abroad is far smaller. That could not b.e helped when Europe was economically prostrate due to the war. But now there has been .remarkable recovery in nation after nation. Spending powers of their peoples have soared. Governments have relaxed currency and other restrictions.
