Thp Loader Is published weekly in Fayette. Iowa, and distributed nn Thursday morning. Entered at the Post Office at Fayette, Iown as second class matter, under the Act of March 3, 1879. Maurice Sloneman, Owner and Publisher Editorial Comments^. The Greatest Hoax Speaking on the floor of the House, Representative. Ikriong of Florida recently made an extremely impoitant point that seems to be generally overlooked or misunderstood in discussions of government spending: "Only by controlling its spending can the Government achieve the results which so often, but inaccurately, are said to come from increased spend ing. The greatest hoax of our time is the notion that greater spending in the so-called public sector is o me, ins for increasing economic growth. The Government livi s off of the private economy, and not vice versa." The government does not and cannot create genuine wealth and growth. Growth depends upon the availability of capital -from the savings of individuals and from the profits of industry. The more that government takes out of the economy, in taxes, the less there is left to build, renew and revitalize that economy. It's that simple, in spite of all the clouds of learned words that, more often than not, serve to obscure, not clarify, the matter. The Right Principle President Kennedy has submitted a plan for a spectacular space communications system to Congress. Certain of his observations are of unusual in- te:.'st. He states that throughout the history of this country "national communication systems have been prieatcly owned." and that studies have convinced him that the "national objectives" can best be achieved" in the framework of a privately owned corporation. properly chartered by Congress." It is difficult In see how anyone, save those who want the government to do everything, can quarrel with this. And it would be a great day for this nation if that attitude were extended to all other enterprise, old or new. The fact is that this country's whole economic system is based upon the work of private enterprise -which means private investment, private risk, private pioneering-under reasonable government regulation when that is necessary. But the system has been sadly watered over the years as government itself has gone deeper and deeper into commercial business of many kinds. This means more than a needless burden on the taxpayers. It means an erosion of economic freedoms and the undermining of political liberty. In short, the principle the President has applied to ownership of space communications was meant to apply to every kind of project under our basic form of government. The adult comnntti e for the Youth Center had a tough decision to make and cn<:\ 1,1,1 Monday night . . . that of '.nspending sev eral boys from tin d titer for a period of time. We're sure they felt as much or mere regret than the boys. ft's a distasteful' task, and a shame that it has to he performed, but sometimes the e is no altern ative. If youngsters cannot at tend such functions in a group and behave, then step:; have to he taken to make them realize tliat rules must be followed A few youngsters rough housing, being disrespectful and destructive can ruin an organization such as the Youth Center. And with an average of more than 50 youngsters attending the Center each Saturday night, it certainly is proving to be a worthwhile project. It's quite possible that others are on the verge of suspension, and maybe this action by the council will serve a purpose in making them realize their behavior isn't the best. We certainly hope that those who were suspended will IK .' able to weigh the value of the Youth Center and will decide to treat it with the respect and dignity it deserves when they arc allowed to return. Possibly a few words from the parents would help them to realize the value of the Center and training for the years ahead that they can get from such an organization. We still recommend more visits to the Center by the parents. SELL YOUR DON'T WANTS WITH LEADER WANT ADS !!:Ui:::!:Hi:H;HH:^!n:H:H:::H::ii::::;!::::::i Homemakers Dateline by Dorothye E. Busching Fayette County HOME ECONOMIST •:i::i3 Do You Recall | 20 - 30 - 40 Years Ago| 1 HSUi Whether or not you're a fan of the self service meat counter, you can be sure it's here to stay. During the past 25 years, self service meat shopping has grown from only 10 such meat markets in the country, to almost 25,000. Today, three-fourths of all fresh meat bought in super markets is on a "serve yourself" basis! DEB Homemakers with a special liking for rearranging the furniture in the future may be able to shift around their kitchen equipment too. More portability in kitchen appliances looks like one of the next major things to come from research laboratories. Such new ranges, refrigerators and other appliances will be lighter in weight so they will be easy to move around. , D-E-B Did you know that historians are agreed that bread has been baked commercially in the United States since 1640? The first bread was baked more than 8,000 years ago by the Swiss Lake Dwellers. D-E-B Have you begun to plan what will be included in your home garden this summer? The extension bulletins "Home Garden Varieties for 1962" contain much useful information for the home gardener. Discussed are the various suitable varieties of flowers, fruits and.vegetables. If you would like these bulletins, drop us a card, Extension Office, Fayette, asking for bulletins FG-947 and FS-944. D-E-B Cotton knits will be more popular than ever in the spring fashion picture. If you plan to include some knits Sn your spring buying, keep these points of quality in mind: 1. Are buttonholes cut on grain and neatly and firmly finished? • -•— •+ 2. Seams should be wide and finished to prevent rolling and raveling. 3. Elastic sewn in the waistband is a quality feature. 5. Pants of all lengths should be fully lined. Remember always to follow manufactures recommendations for proper care. D-E-B March is egg month! Eggs are of such high nutritive value that they should be included in our normal everyday diet. They supply complete proteins for body tissue and cell building. Eggs may safely substitute for serving or meat for any member of the family. For a wide variety of ways to serve eggs, check your favorite cookbook! O-E-B It is easy to store, to use, to measure; it tastes good, whips and is very nutritious.

It is wonderful for breads, soups, main 20 Years Ago — At the Fayette town election on March 30 the voters of Fayette will vote for or against approval of an ordinance passed by the town council on Feb. 19, 1942, creating a park commission. The miniature x-ray film, one of sciences newest contributions in the fight against tuberculosis, will be employed in the high schools of Fayette county on March 10, 11, and 12. The Johnson elevator at Arlington was destroyed by fire Monday morning, the cause being un known. C. H. De Bow of Arlington passed away about 4 o'clock Sunday afternoon, after a lingering illness. Winter use of the parks has been heavy, and visitors are still encouraged to use the parks as much as passible. However, V. W. Flickinger advises that this year, as in the past, roads into parks will be closed when the road beds are softened to the point that traffic over them would cause damage. Mrs. Sally Lenora Pattison, 80 years old passed away this morning, at the home of her son, Walter, 332 9th Ave. S. W. Dr. V. T. Smith, president of U. I. U., has announced that a class of home nursing for non- college students has been organized in connection with a similar course offered to college girls. —• womanhood, died last Thursday, March 10, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Blanche Waterbury. A county democratic mass con vention will be held in West Union March 19 at 2 p. m. Oweetis Porter placed first in dramatic division at the county declamatory contest. James Hutton, 83 years of age, died March 6 at the county home where he had been for some time. Bandits robbed the City National bank at Clinton, Iowa, Tuesday morning, of $106,000, and within three hours four suspects were captured. —•— 40 Years Ago — Mr. and Mrs. B. A. Smith were called to Strawberry Point Thursday by the death of his father, Albert Smith. Dr. A. H. Humiston, formerly a Fayette boy, was chosen president of the recently organized West Highland ( Cedar Rapids ) Community club. John G. Swales, born June 30, 1849, passed away in his home in Fayette March 13, 1922, at the age of 72 years 8 months and 13 days. JAMES E. BROMWEU SECOND IOWA DISTRICT Nuclear Testing: Someone wise once said of business, "The problem is to make sound decisions on the basis of incomplete facts." This combined with the dreadful prospect of error was the Pres ident's problem, and the problem or his advisors on the question of atmospheric nuclear testing. Even the American people could not make the decision for him. We must support it and abide the result. — B — The complete exoneration of Francis Gary Powers is agreed with whole-heartedly here. Although it was not surprising, it nas not suspected, largely because of irresponsible comments, that he had carried out his instructions as thoroughly as he had. — B — The Congress gave educational TV a boost last week. It has been favorably considered by the Iowa legislature. The bill should ultimately make a million dollars available to Iowa on a matching basis for construction of educat mnal TV facilities. — B — The consensus is that the current fall off in business is only tempor ary. While it is not expected to reach the peaks hoped for in the federal budget estimates, it should quickly recover the February drop. — flit seems to me Congress is doing a better job so far this year than it did last. Legislation so far shows greater deliberation and care and the results appear sounder in general. Probable reasons: 1 ) experience of the Administration, 2 ) familiarity of the Committee with the proposals. Notable exceptions: 1 ) the postal rate bill, and 2 ) the bill to enlarge the House. — B — Russian smiles are still Russian. The problem is to place enough reliance in them to take what ad vantage there is available; not as much as to be caught off guard. Proof of their good intentions never came from their action, nor talk. — B — No farm legislation in final form is expected for many weeks, perhaps months. A summary of the current proposal ( H. R. 10010 ) is available by writing my office. — B — Because it will come to my committee, I am introducing a bill in the House, as Senator Keating has in the Senate, to provide a Federal charter for the Paralyzed Veterans of the United States. Although few in number, these men are true heroes and they deserve the recognition. With primary election less than 12 weeks away, it would be fitting and proper to give some thought to the history of the extremely powerful COPE. The Political Action Committee was founded by Sidney Hillman in 1943. At that time, the then young Walter Reuther was merely head of the GM division of the UAW. In 1947 the AFL si t up their League of Political Education. Soon after the !!).").") nvrger of the AFL CIO found ed the Committee on Political Education ( COPE ). The Taft Hartley Act states. . . "Labor leaders shall be forbidden to make from union funds any contribution or expenditure in connection with election to any Federa! office". The mearis by which big labor leaders have circumvented this portion of the Taft- Hartley law is boyishly simple, but none the less effective. They simply put their millions of dollars of political activity under their favorite heading of "education", and so far the courts have upheld them in their interpretation. The power Mnicturc of the COPE is the very same as in all big labor action All decisions are in the hands of the ( favorite Walter Reuther phrase ) "over-all agency", of which he of course is an all powerful dominant member. The pipe line of power is from the nation,;! committee, to the state committees, to the local committees, to the membership. There are hundreds of well paid staff personnel. But they are of course paid as AFL-CIO staff workers, not as COPE workers. The pay is a sum total of salary, plus tavfree expense money, plus" automobile expenses, which will total around S12.500 per year, PLCS insurance and medical prerequisites. Therefore NONE of this flood of money is ever listed anywhere as political expenditure.

Last year, most of the frozen juice and other concentrates were packed in aluminum cans. Aluminum cans do not rust or discolor, they may be safely reused - in the home, they are lightweight to lower shipping costs and they are completely sanitary. Soon we should find other foods packed in aluminum cans on the market.

Walter Reuther, and broth crs Roy and Victor, are as not ably averse about being used by other people, as they are active in using other people. The very same thing is true of the Kennedy brothers. Therefore there is some hope that the two powerful brother teams may very well collide. And if it happens, it will be some coll ision. • But at the moment, the labor barons stand virtually outside the law, the "monoply trust" of these times. WHERE ARE THE "TRUST BUSTERS"? ? ?
