2-At*Mie fla.) Upp«r &*< 43, 1966 H Viet war ends... (Frorr. Fort Do3g* Even if we could -wrap up the war in Viet Kim tomorrow there is the gnawing suspicion tKat before Jong we egsin would be engaged in another "peripheral war" in Southeast Asia designed to further contain Chinese Communism. This feeling grows out of the enormous V S. military presence in the Pacific and the realization of the military man's fear of ever giving up any salient. In many ways we have become a creature of habit and although tijnes and conditions change we are unwilling to: revise our own national strategy. Basically, tfte United States still is committed to the Ictea that Communist Chin* is bent upon military aggression and we alone can etop her. Whether we realize it or not American pjwer in the Pacific already is gigantic. Arherica — its men, its money and its machines —•today Is intermingled with the affairs of governments everywhere and with the daily lives of hundreds of millions of people. View for a moment the world of the Pacific — ^from Alaska to Okinawa, to Japan and the Philippines, to Viet Nam and Thailand — America's military presence alone now totals nearly 700,000 men and continues to grow v/Jth each passing day. Here arc the latest figures available on oar military involvement in the Pacific: In Alaska — 30,000 military men. Hawaii — 100,000 military men. Guam — 20,000 military men. Okinawa — 25,000 military men, Japan — 39,000 military men. 'Korea — 55,000 military men. ^Taiwan — 10,000 military men. .The Philippines — 25,000 military men. •Viet Nam — about 285,000 military men, Thailand — 20,000 military men. And in addition the Seventh Fleet with approximately 70,000 military men patrols the waters of the Pacific Ocean and the southern seas. This is the legacy of World War II and a continuation of a foreign policy steeped in a philosophy of military containment of Red Gruria and,!be old domino theory coupled with trjfeheadib&» which comes with power. *We ignore the fact that while we see China as a threatening monster eager to smash her neighbors, others closer to her do not share tKis worry. Japan, for example, the most powerful non-communist society of eastern Asia, is far more relaxed than the United Slates. Algontr 38 e* Molntt. HIE.

Also she feels the external power of the U. S. and Soviet Russia. Since the Korean war she has managed to avoid entering into any large-scale land engagements with her neighbors. She has suffered political setbacks in Indonesia and in Africa. There are no Red Chinese fighting in Viet Nam and only a week ago Monday Communist China told the North Vietnamese that they must rely on their own strength in their fight with the U. S. The statement came at the very time when we have stepped up the war against North Viet Nam with regular bombing raids on important fuel dumps. There would appear no eagerness on the part of the Chinese to rush into a war with the United States. Yet, our foreign policy makers are unwilling to break with the idea that we must take up arms at every uprising of Asian peoples even though such turmoil may not have anything to do with Red China. We are unable to distinguish civil wars, clashing local personalities and the strains between various religious groupings. As time passes'and the war in Viet Nam continues to escalate, we should eventually see ever more clearly the demonstration of the limitations of overwhelming military power in dealing with political insurgency. It is hoped that our leaders will soon become aware of this fact, so that we shall be spared in the future even greater expenditures of American life and money in the vast regions of the Pacific. COMMENT ON ELECTION Grundy Center Register — Every landtlid. election in the past hat been followed with a setback in the succeeding election. It will be remembered that Dwight Eisenhower not only won by a wide margin for his first election, but he carried a majority of Congress with him. At the next election 2 years later, the democrats took back a majority in Congress. There never before was as big a political landslide in this country as there was two years ago. In that landslide six of our seven representatives In congress went over to the democrats. At the same election thr.e out of four members of our state legislature were democrats. While there had been republican majorities in our state legislature for many years, at no time did the republicans have such a one-sided majority. And no one with any fair political judgment would expect such a majority to come through the next election. This comment is written and printed before the votes are counted and the writer expects and predicts that the spread between the two parties in Iowa will lessen and that there will be a more even division between our two parties in the next legislature. It may be better that way, as we may look for more helpful legislation with our two parties more equally divided. X ALWAYS PARKING PROBLEMS Indianola Tribune - Most cities and towns are faced with parking problems during peak periods. Some of the problem is caused by business owners .and employees parking their own cars in restricted areas. Every so often the Chamber of Commerce makes a little campaign on this matter, but in most towns the problem soon reappears. In an attempt to help solve the limlt.d park- Ing problem in Fairfleld's metered area of the downtown business section, the city police are distributing red tags. Officials of that city point out that if you see a red tpg on a car it will mean that the car Is owned by a merchant or an employee. The Fairfield Parking Corporation, Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, Retail Committee and police department are all cooperating in the program. The red tags which are placed on such cars states "You are a profit stealer. This stall could be used for customer advantage." The car owner is then urged to cooperate with the plan and park In a non-metered area. Sounds like a good idea. from HISTORY'S SCRAPBOOK DATES AND EVENTS FROM YESTERYEARS AGO IN TMI The British Army evacuated New York City. November 25. 1783. Judge Kenesaw M.

Usually in the afternoon, be cause In the morning you have to worry about money. It's a good idea to worry about your health. You don r have as much of it after you pass age 60. And it's natural But there's a medical man around, who won't let his name be used, but who thinks you should cut your worrying down. Say, to the 10th and 25th oi every month. According to this man, you should choose a permanent doctor around retirement age, if you don't have one. And you should do the following: 1. Haye a "conversationses- sion" with the doctor, teljing him your medical history, what physical and mental. exertions you had exertions on the jpb and what you plan for retire. ment, and what smoking, drinking, and eating habits you have. g. Have the doctor give you a CQmpletejnedicaU'xamination, in qrder to correct what ails vou now but of equal importance to get into his files u full report on how ypur heart, liver.-etc. are behaving' so he can tell later on W-Qiey're acting up. OTiis is the § nfat value pf choosing one odor and sticking with him — he will have a file on you.) 3. Ask the doctor whether he 11 drag his feet when and if it comes to certifying you for Medicare. 4. Ask him how often you should come in for periodic checkups. Then determine to do what he says. 5. Tell him - the full truth now — just how much you have been spending per month for what kind of vitamin pills, and for bottles of Uncle Jack's Liver ionic, and for Super-Miracle \ outh Yoghurt. After age 50 or so many people start using all sorts of patent medicines as a crutch . . .and simply don't need them, 6. Choose a drugstore, and lick with it, Sp it'll deliver your medicine when it's raining.' 7. Stop thinking sick, w riany retired people . which do out of rustration with idleness or in a bid to get attention. Knough of this and somebody will have you lying on i\ psychiatrist's couch. 8. Xow get the whole thing >ff ygur mind. Most retired people never have a disastrous illness that kills them before their ime. For th f OOlOfN YtA« '" '•"'•• " r c ' flM ID PUZZLE US?
