2-Algona (la.) Upper Dot Moine* Thundtry, D«t. 19, 1966 GOVERNORS AND PRESIDENT While tome have been trying to make It teem like a small Inturrectlon, It does not appear from what Governor Hughe* reported after the meeting, that any great revolt took place on the par! of Democratic governor} against President Johnton. But the governors did have o chance to express their feelings on a number of pointi which have been foggy In state-federal relation*, and to offer concrete suggestions which we hope the Johnton adminittration will heed In the future. Federal government it to vatt that not even the President of the United Stales can keep In touch with everything that goet on, nor the Congret*.. The mlttaket that are made can be proposed, enacted Into law, and become a part of life before many a high authority hat a chance to really underttand what It happening — let alone the common people. Some of the lawt enacted the patt several yeart, and tome of the program* developed, have not proved too popular, or too workable, or too practical. How do these come about? The Congrett, in both Senate and Houte, hai a hott of cornmltteet. The commltteot hold hearlngt, at which time variout pieces of propoted legislation are pretented. Some are discarded; othert go back for revision; tome are patted from Houte to Senate committee!, or vice vena, and finally they may reach the floor of the Houte for actual vote. Where do thete ideas or new propotalt come from? Some come from membert of the Congreti or group* of them, but a great many come from varlout government agenciet, bureaus, and what have you. Thete may be cooked up by one or more unreallttic pertons, by government crones out to enlarge the scope of their own departmentt, or by addled brains masquerading under fancy titles in tome tax- eating bureau. Unfortunately, tome of them eventually get their ideal into law. The screening lin't perfect, and the final result itn't either. Federal legislation which became law after spontoring of the Federal Bureau of Roadt It a good example. Someone attached to federal legislation on the use of federal fundi in ttate conttructlon, a proviso that for the ttate to get its allocation it mutt adopt a statewide inspection of all motor vehicle* by Jan. 1, 1968, or tote 10 percent of the Federal highway fund. The burden of enacting the requirementi of thii law fall* on the ttate. Some penon Inserted this little' |oker 'that now" becomes a thorn in the side of state officials, and if retained and enforced, a burr under the saddle for most motorist* who will have to pay a fee, get a sticker and go through all of the "inspection" bologna that most drivers do automatically with automobiles that cost enough to make it obvious that you want your brakes working, your tire* decent, your light* correct, your horn ready to blast, and your steering mechanism functioning as it should.

They were not trying to tell the President how to do his job, but pointing out many of the unnecnary intrusions of the Federal government into everyday living and the operation of »tate government!. The biggest favor that the new Congress could do the American people would be to throw into the wa«teba»ke» about 90 percent of oil the new legislation that will be pro- poted. let "Big Brother" coast for awhile and give the public a chance !o catch its breath. * * * A BIG ASSIGNMENT In the hands of a small, brown man, United Nations Secretary-General U Thant, lies seemingly the only hope at present for any kind of a settlement of the war in Vietnam. The United States has requested him to "take whatever steps you consider necessary" to bring about discussions aimed at a cease- fire. This is •about the farthest we have yet gone In officially expressing ourselves on the subject of bringing an end to the war. Senator Mike Mansfield of Montana, commenting on the U.S. request to U Thant, sagely said: "The options or alternatives are getting fewer, but we must never reach a point where everyone is closed. And we now face the prospect of more and more Vietnamese saying 'Let the Americans fight the war.' If we increase U.S. troop deployment in the southern Mekong Delta, where our troops have not gone before, but where the Viet Cong Is perhaps strongest, it is going to call for a decided increase in U.S. troops." let us all hope that the Secretary-General of the United Nations can find some way to get all factions seated at a conference table. If he can accomplish this feat, the cost of the United Nations will have been a good investment. In the meantime, we seem to be on the threshold of making the same basic move in Thailand that got us into Vietnam, Senator Mansfield point out in warning.. JJOT GETTING IT ALL! », - 1 / !:.;•. , - H ''" *' Decorah Newspapers — Mistakenly, a lot of people complain that the American farmers are getting too much government assistance. Most of these gripers have the erroneous notion that every dollar in the government's food budget goes to the American farmer. To destroy the myth that farmers are receiving a 7 billion dollar subsidy annually from the federal government, Senator Walter F. Mandate of Minnesota introduced a bill which underscores several examples of expenditures benefitting the public but which many people do not realize are in the budget. These include: (1) One and six-tenths billion dollars for the Food for Peace Program; (2) Two hundred and twenty-seven million dollars for the United States Forest service; (3) Sixty-nine million dollars indirect subsidy for the Merchant Marine; (4) Three hundred and seventy-one million dollars for rural electrification and telephone loans which are always repaid, but without crediting the farm budget; (5) Ninety-nine and nine-tenths million dollars for the Food Stamp Program for the needy; (6) Two hundred and two million dollars for the National School Lunch Program; and (7) One hundred million dollars for the Special Milk Program for school children. So, you see, the American farmer isn't getting it all after all. * * * Things tend to even up. The more weight you carry around, the shorter time you'll likely have to carry it. -Independence Bulletin-Journal A good woman inspires a man, a brilliant woman interests him, a beautiful wqman fascinates him, but a sympathetic woman gets him. -Onawa Sentinel When an American invents a new product, it is invented, first, a month later, by the Russians — and two months later the Japanese are producing it cheaper. -Breda News For And About Teenagers] THE WEEK'S LETTER? "I am 14 years old. I have a problem with my mother. She doesn't care If I go on dates but there is one boy my mother won't let me go out with. He happens to be the only boy I like. She said he was 'cute' but he was a 'smart-aleck'. What should I do? I want to go on a date with him. Should I sneak out with him — or do what my mother says?" OUR REPLY: Do what your mother says. Most 14 year old girls are not permitted to date at all. If your mother permits you to date, providing she knows who you are dating, you will be wise to believe in her food judgment and recognize that any objections she has to some boy are based upon considered thought and a genuine interest in your welfare. If you go against your ^mother's wishes and date boys ~»vho are not acceptable in her eyes, you may wind up not being able to date at all. Should you believe your mother is wrong about this particular boy, your proper move is to show her where she is wrong — and at the same time, be willing to accept the truth about him if she shows you that she is right.

The United Nations declaration was signed, January 1, 1942. The United States announced an ''Open Door" policy for China, January 2, 1900. General Electric Company was organized, January 3, 1889. The first chain radio broadcast was transmitted between WEAF, N.Y. and WNAC, Boston, January 4, 1923. The last spike was driven In the Great Northern Railroad, January 5, 1893. The American Red Cross was chartered, January 5, 1905. WASHINGTON Meiry-Go-Round - PRESIDENT TRUMAN FAILING- Harry Truman';, health is de-. teriorating rather rapidly. Now 82 years old, the former President is seeing almost no one. His oldest friends, including Gen. Harry Vaughan, have advised other friends not to try to see him when they" pass through Kansas City. This writer called, on Mr. Truman on his lastbirth- - day* in .May. He looked fairly g, wel£i~J5b|| was not the spry and| peppery 'individual he used to>i be. '' - o- - RUSSIA'S SPACE LULL American scientists are mystified and concerned over the fact that Russia has not launched a man In space for some time. For one reason, every day that goes by without a Russian space spectacular is costing our Space Agency money - because President Johnson is looking hard at the space budget and will probably cut it far below what the scientists want. So for once our scientists wish that the Russians would put a man, a dog, a cat, or even a donkey into space. However, there is an even more ominous fear in Washington, namely that the Russians have decided to give up the race to the moon. It's now pretty clear from pictures of the moon that there is little on it except dust, and that it's practically uninhabitable.' It might serve as a military base, but the United States and Russia have now signed a treaty to neutralize outer space. So the fear in Washington Is that the Russians have quite the race for the moon and are concentrating on military rocketry instead. - o- - WOMAN SCORNED- Mrs. Adam Clayton Powell, third wife of the Harlem Congressman, and now living in Puerto Rico, has her husband over the barrel when It comes to a divorce, possibly even on the question of whether he will go to jail. Powell wants a divorce from his third wife so he can marry the former Miss Ohio beauty queen, Corinne Huff, who now works in his office. But Mrs. Marjorie Flores- Powell in San Juan, Puerto Rico, hasn't received her $20,000 annual salary checks for approximately one year, she told friends in Washington las( summer, and Congressman Powell has admitted depositing them to his own account. If any part of these checks have been withheld from her, she could have Uej husband prosecuted on kickback charges. Some years ago tWs column was instrumental in sending Rep, Parnell Thomas of New Jersey to jail for requiring his secretaries to kick back part of their salaries, so if Rep. Powell DREW PEARSON has dipped into his wife's salary checks he could be in serious trouble - much graver than his libel suit difficulties in Now York. And since he refused to see his wife and their 3-year-old son when Mrs. Powell came to Washington this year, he probably won't find her too sympathetic to his desire to make Corrine Huff the fourth Mrs. Powell. - o - - MANCHESTER BOOK ON JFK- Even though Look magazine has paid $650,000 for William Manchester's book on President Kennedy's assassination, it has offered to delete passages which Jackie Kennedy doesn't like. These are emotional scenes with President Johnson on the airplane trip back from Dallas. However, it's Manchester who is balking at the cuts. He is irritated over Mrs. Kennedy's statement that she controlled him and would decide what he could write. - o - - POLITICAL POSTCRIPTS The Democratic National Committee has been in total disarray since the election. In fact, It was floundering throughout the campaign. Congressional can* didates complain that they got no help from the committee except a few canned speeches on the Great Society. The Democrats received jolting losses in every state where there had been a bitter Democratic primary battle. These included California, Florida, Georgia, Minnesota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin. Of the 47 Democratic freshmen, 22 were returned to Congress. Only in the Midwest did the freshmen take a bad beating. Tiough Congress is expected to take a more conservative turn, the new House will actually be more liberal than the one that convened during the Kennedy administration. Barry Goldwater may abandon his feud with Michigan's Gov. George Romney. Goldwater wants to return to the Senate in 1968, In Arizona, with its large Mormon population, he can't be elected if he opposes a Mormon for President. - o- - MERRY-GO-ROUND A company in Plnellas Park, Fla., has broadcast a mail offer to supply "master keys" to open almost any brand of auto or truck. It advertises "ten keys to open General Motors products," "four keys to open Ford products and four to open Chrysler cars." Looks like a wonderful opportunity for car thieves... Joe Shimon, the former D. C. police lieutenant who was ousted for private wire tapping on the side, is now working for Edward Bennett Williams, the noted lawyer who is defending Bobby Baker on the grounds that the evidence against him was wire tapped. Williams says Shimon is doing investigative work, not eavesdropping . . . Gov. Pat Brown of California turned down an offer from Clint Murchison, owner of the Dallas Cowboys and the Delmar Race Track, of $100,000 to be given to California Boys Clubs to combat juvenile delinquency. Murchison hoped for favorable consideration for the renewal of his Delmar Track franchise. Instead, California authorities awarded the track to Jonnie Alessio, operator of the Tijuana track and one of the biggest bookmaking establishments in the west — just'across :i the border in Mexico. .Many law •-. enforcement authorities are unhappy with a bookmaker - incidentally a supporter of Brown's- as aprospectiveoper- ator of Delmar.

The coming of a New Year always is — for men and woman who have passed the age of 59. Are they planning well enough for retirement? Are they saving enough money? \Vhat are they going to do after 65? It is only twice a year, on New Year's and on birthdays, that they fret about these things very much. So it seems fitting, with 1967 coming on, that they get some consolation and some guidance on their concerns. A retired office manager, Robert \V. Gardner, has a little of both. Mr. Gardner retired a-year- and-a-half ago. He made no preparations for retirement, because he made a gamble on outwitting a compulsory retirement policy and lost; he accumulated virtually no savings for it, because he was having too much fun spending what he made. Yet his retirement has been successful. He and Mrs. Gardner are happy. What, if he had to do it over again, would he do — starting at about age 59? "For one thing, I wouldn't worry too much about it," he says. "God will provide, and He has Medicare, pension plans, Social Security, and a benevolent Great Society to help out. Hut still, having gone through the retirement mill, I would do certain things: " I would start with a doctor. I would get one young enough to accept the Medicare concept and young enough to outlive me. I'd see him every six months so he could build such a file on me that he could tell at once when I started breaking up. "I'd do the same with a lawyer — one young enough to accept the idea of Socialized Law, which is likely to follow Socialized Medicine; and young enough to build a file on all my affairs ..." Then, Mr. Gardner says, he'd sell his house and move into an apartment, "That's the only civilized way to live in retirement. The upkeep on a house, the bother of it, and all those dogs and kiddies aren't THAT much fun." he would set up a file at once and start filling it with the valuable papers needed for retirement, including birth certificate, marriage certificate, military service records, income tax records, insurance policies, copy of will, and company retirement data. "To come up to retirement without these papers handy is a mess," he says. Mr. Gardner says that shortly after age 59, "I would start cutting the umbilical cord between my job and me. This is an emotional and mental cord, not a physical one —the compulsory retirement policy takes care of you physically. I would train myself to understand that when I retired I would lose a sweetheart, who might love me still but would want no more dates with me. I would start cultivating a new love . . . Mr. Gar'dner explains that the major retirement project he would undertake at age 59 or so would be the cultivation of new friends who had interests completely apart from hiid job. to< lh« C01DEN VEARS 36-pogg booV.i, It id SOc in coin Ing itampi). lo 0«pl.
