4^Af«Nltf (to.) Upper DM M*t*M tti.w*if, Nov TIME FOR A BREATHER f h* •lection* of Tuesday ihould Indicate one thing, quickly, to the national administration. White the Democrat* still control the top echelon* of national government, and the U.S. Congress, it ihould be very clear that the general public it not anxlout to tee another two years of attorted Ideat and programs Introduced into the national life and govern* ment policy In the tame quick fathlon that hat been done In the patt two yeart. We need time to abtorb the meal we have already eaten, and the next two yeart should be yean In which we make the recently Introduced program* better and the Ideat work, or eliminate them. It should be a good time for tmalysis, and for a breather. Our major concern should be Viet Nam; other thing* can wait. The Democratic party prides itself on being a party of progrett, which I* all to the good, but perhaps there alto comes a time when the part of wisdom would be to take time to examine what I* already In the work* — and this I* such a time. FABLE OF THE FROG Exchange — There'* an old story that says you can't kill a frog by dropping him In boil- Ing water. He react* 10 quickly to the sudden heat that he jumps out before he's hurt. But If you put him In cold water and them warm It up gradually, he never decides to jump till It's too late. By then he's cooked! Men are just as foolish. Take away their freedom overnight, and you've got a violent revolution. But steal It from them gradually (under the guise of "security," "peace," or "progress") and you can paralyze an entire generation. Look at the Income tax. It started out at a harmless sounding 1%. It would have been easy to [ump out of water a* tepid a\ this, but like the frog, we waited while It climbed ever higher. (Try jumping nowl) The tragedies of history are always repeated by those who refuse to learn them. To seek guidance from the past Is not "turn- Ing the clock back" as we are so often told. It Is merely a good way to keep out of hot water. Indlanola Tribune - Lee Marvin, movie actor, In This Week magazine sayst " . . , People expect too much of children nowadays. All that emphasis on education is ridiculous. L disapprove of sending everybody to college." I'd put high school graduates to work building the Alcan Highway or driving a bulldozer for two years. Let them find out what labor's all about. Give them a head start at making a bundle of loot. Then, If they still think college Is for them-great." Algana tipper 9?* JHainei> HIE.

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST HARD TO BELIEVE tmmeftburg Democrat - We find It hard to accept* the result* of the recent centut showing an alleged decrease of 63 In Emmettburg't population. How do you reconcile our apparent expan- lion In home and commerical building, In- duitry and education with a imaller population than we had tn I960, six yean ago? These are fait changing timei. Workeri, itudentt and otheri are on the move with hornet one place and their livelihood or stud- let In another. Moonlighting, unknown only a few yeari ago, It commonplace among farm* en, wives and tingle glrlt, white many other women have full time jobi. All of thlt hat a bearing on population countt in growing communltlet when circumstances require so much moving about. There has never been so much commuting before tn rural areai. At the farmi get bigger (with grain farm- Ing on the Increase), empty farm houses with their staring windows and forlorn surroundings are becoming more numerous. Some of these houses are now occupied by people who work in town or go to school In town and have nothing to do with farming. The farmers themselves have become great moonlighters. With today's power machinery, planting, harvesting and plowing take a fraction of the time they did in the old days. Why should a farmer not work In industry in the long off season if he so wishes? These are some of the reasons why we have had second thoughts on the results of the census. Not that we mistrust the census workers. We (ust wonder with our shifting populations how you are going to get an accurate count. Just who Is an Emmetsburger and who Isn't? Do you count the farmer, or a fraction of him, If he works the winter months In the city? Or the wife living in an ex-farm house a few miles out who drives In every day to work In a store after dropping her husband off at a factory? Or the students employed on a nine-month basis? Or any of those person who commute here daily from neighboring towns? All of these people, wherever their roof at night, are an important part of our city and its growth. FIGHT RED CHINA? Iowa Falls Citizen - In the 1930's there were voices that "we (the United States) will end up fighting Nazi Germany." ManyTjf the same voices said the same thing about our future relations with Japan. History proved them right. Through circumstances — most beyond our control — we fought both Germany and Japan. World War II was still echoing when Russia became a potential "hot war" enemy. But this time, leadership in both countries took steps which avoided — just barely — direct military confrontations. Fortunately, prospects today of a war with Russia are dimmer than at any time since 1950. The "hawks" have been rejected. But those same "hawks" are never caught without a cause and Russia has been supplanted tn their cries by China. They're dead certain that we must eventually fight the Red Chinese. Events of the last 20 years should have taught us — as a nation — that war with Red China is not inevitable. The Chinese mind readily accepts the idea fostered in Peking that America wants war with that country. Western powers have a long and shabby record of exploitation in China. This distrust of the United States is only deepened by our successful efforts to exclude Red China from the United Nations. It is further aggravated by our refusal to even recognize that a Chinese government even exists other than on Formosa. It's high time that the United States stop tailoring its Asiatic foreign policy to suit the variable whims of Chiang Kai-shek. War between the United States and China Is not tn- vltable. But a lasting peace is an improbability under the prevailing moods. The idea of some accommodation between our country and Red China is not appeasement or a sign of weakness. Quite the contrary. It takes a fair amount of courage to consider new Ideas in foreign policy and we would hope that the United States is strong enough to take the lead in easing the present tensions.

You'll find It under your grey hairs. Nowhere else. Not Tn a book, and certainly not In what somebody else is doing. Recognize — and set down firmly — what your aspirations In retirement are. Then apply a little common sense about people and things a« they are. And you've got It. This week came the retirement story of a man named U'atter- son. He said: "Ive been working since 1 was old enough to pick up a hoe. I'm tired. I'm going to retire, and 1 ain't going to do another lick of work for nobody as long as I live." Mr. Watterson, a plant mechanic, will have a good retirement. You can bet on It. He needs only to find a cracker- barrel to alt on. About a dozen miles from Mr. Watterson's plant another man was retiring this week. A Mr. Bristol, a company vice- president. He said: "Mrs. Bristol and I plan to make our home at the Country Club. We're looking forward to bridge and, of course, golf. And 1 intend to do some sailing . . ." Mr. Bristol has fallen for "Ulch Man's Plan No. 14-B." Unless there's a miracle his retirement will fail. Not dramatically, but month by month as the social life palls and as the chic young things who hang around country clubs nudge him and his wife into the background. But along with these two stories, there came a third. And In It you may find a clue toybur future. The story is from a man who has had a long career in the Federal Government. "1 will be eligible for retirement in about one year, at the age of 62," he says. "My wife and I both will get a retirement income, which will be adequate for our needs. We have a few thousands in savings. We will sell our home, which is worth about SI5,000 ..." Then they will move to Seattle, Wash. "Our son lives in Seattle, and on his property he has a small two-bedroom house. It has a garage and a workshop. It will fit our needs very well. We will pay a nominal rent for it. And meanwhile will be available to look after our son's home while he is away, as he will look after ours when we are away. This will leave our savings intact. "My chief interest to pursue in retirement is rock-hounding. My wife's chief interest is rug- making. I will equip the shop in our rented house for lapidary work, with grinder saws, polisher, racks, and display cases. Then during the summer months my wife and I will make field trips through Washington, Oregon, and Canada collecting stones. And occasionally panning some gold and fishing," For Hit GOLDEN YEARS tt-pog* booll*!, itnd SOe in coin Ino itompi), to Dt»l. CSM, EM 1672, Grand C.ntrol Station, N*w Yorii. N.V. 10017.
