Only when man is free to control himself and all he produces can he develop to his utmost capability The News believes each and every person would get more satisfaction in the long run if he were permitted to spend what he earsn on a volunteer basis rather than having part of it distributed invluntority. Thought For Dad Well, here's one for dear old dad. To be a father in fact is not so much, but to be a father in deed, now that's something. A father is the great leader of the world. At least he has the opportunity to be, because he has the attention of the most remarkable raw material on God's earth at a time when it is most susceptible to guidance and molding. The ideas he exposes are critical. What a father offers his children at a time when they most need or when they may be most able to react, sets pattern and direction for a chain of events from that bright eyed, enthusiastic inquisitive child. When we hear: "My old man was a drunk," or "He always beat me," or "He ran off and left us when I was a kid" we often are saddened at the thought of a miserable life that person had as a child. But that isn't the end of the world, and such adverse start in life can serve to strengthen a child for his years ahead. Did having a thoghtless father cause him to dedicate himself to a sober life of kindness and dedication to responsibility? The fact is, that children cannot blame their fathers if their own lives are unsatisfactory. This is not to approve of delinquent fathers. The "old man" will live with his own sense of failure as a person. And we have pity for him for he has forfeited one of life's great rewards, the love and respect of his children. And while father cannot be held responsible for the kind of adult his child becomes, he has, for one brief moment that golden opportunity to help point the way. It begins at that awesome day when he first takes that tiny bundle of life in his arms and wonders "what in the world am I going to do with this?" Sometimes he is not up to the challenge and sometimes he overdoes the fatherhood role to the point of living his child's life. We suggest he best can serve his child by setting examples that will impress upon that son or daughter that each person is responsible for his actions and that each must shoulder the consequences of his mistakes. He might also explain that each should reap the benefits of wise decisions. (He'll have a problem there, because the sirens of socialism are forcing contrary ideas upon us all.) But a needed virtue for fathers is patience. He needs to understand that love is not showering the little tot with all those goodies, and he should know that life patterns can be set when the child is only a wee tot. So today while old dad sits smugly back in that easy chair and the offspring go through the ritual of showering him with favors, we suggest he give a long thoughtful look at the children he has helped bring into the world. Is he helping them learn what being an individual is all about? The Bureaucrat Mind The Florida Insurance Commissioner is threatening to revoke the license of an insurance company on grounds that it employed Art Linkletter to advertise its services. The commissioner stated that the well-known television personality was not a "licensed agent authorized to solicit insurance in this state." The case illustrates how a bureaucrat's mind works. Because Linkletter—for a fee—discussed, advocated, and recommended a specific insurance company, the commissioner comes to a conclusion that he was soliciting a sale. Now, let's take a look at that. In order to solicit a sale, the solicitor must have some means for completing the transaction. Furthermore, he must not only commend the company to a specific prospective buyer, he must offer a specific merchandise. We are frankly skeptical that a person of Linkletter's means and responsibilities would use his time to dot the "i's" and cross the "t's" on an insurance policy or to go through all the detail necessary to close an insurance sale. We could conclude the reasonable likelihood that Linkletter was advertising insurance in Florida, not selling it. There is a difference between advertising and selling. The two are related, but are not the same. Just ask your friendly neighborhood retailer. He'll tell you.

Hard Terms Are Pushed By Hanoi ByRAYCROMLEY WASHINGTON (NBA) —Rigid doctrinaire thinking may yet enable the North Vietnamese to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. President Nixon, along with mining Haiphong harbor, offered terms which would enable Hanoi to force a coalition government on Saigon and eventually to take over the South, lock, stock and barrel. One might anticipate that North Vietnam would jump for the offer after some stalling. Hanoi has publicly said the terms are unacceptable. But such public statements, or even private messages to the United Stales, could be part of their normal diplomatic maneuvering. However, it now appears North Vietnam is going to blow it. Hanoi's men have told European sources known to this reporter that indeed they will in fact never negotiate so long as President Theiu and his government are in office, regardless of what terms are offered—even if the offers in fact would result in handing them South Vietnam on a platter. Combined with the abdication of Thieu, Hanoi demands that it will negotiate only with a Saigon government set up in advance, with the connivance of the United States, dominated by men of Hanoi's choosing, and containing no one Hanoi chooses to veto. This before talks even begin. If Hanoi sticks to these demands, it indicates a rigidity which could make it impossible for Nixon to negotiate. For acceptance would mean that Nixon, not Hanoi, with no fig leaf to hide the deed, would be forced to openly install a Communist-dominated government without vote of the people or any pretense of a vote and do this before the negotiations. This would make the United States an open ally of Hanoi in the takeover, and be so blatant a United States sellout of its principles and friends that it is difficult to see how anyone could trust this country again. Perhaps this is what Hanoi wants more than it wants South Vietnam—or it may be Ho Chi; Minn's successors now believe they can have both. Many voices say the United States should just get out of Vietnam and let things go at that. What should be made clear now is that the evidence so far is that Hanoi is not willing to settle for that. Hanoi seems to have made it crystal clear to Dr. Henry Kissinger that even if the United States were to pack up and leave "by a date certain," that would not be enough to insure the return of U.S. prisoners. As the American negotiators understand the terms, Hanoi insists that before peace talks could seriously begin the United States would have to actually bring down Thieu and take the steps outlined above. Only then would Hanoi consent to talk about U.S. prisoners of war and their return. If this sounds absurd, it is clearly the reading that Kissinger and his associates have on what the Communists are demanding. Tax-Free Tse-tung High school drop-out Joseph Kennedy, III, oldest son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, is now on the payroll of the tax-exempt foundation bearing his father's name. WASHINGTON STAR columnists Vera Glaser and Malvina Stephenson report the 19-year-old heir is ensconced in an office adjoining a reception room adorned with "huge posters" of Chinese Communist Chairman Mao Tse-tung and Cesar Chavez, the farm labor organizer who has been enrolling migrant workers in his union via compulsion. —Human Events WORLD ALMANAC FACTS Yellowstone National Park, established in 1872, is the oldest and largest national park in the United States.

World's Longest Running Serial Rearview Mirror BVTKXDeWKKMK Editor of The News Hanoi Gets The Word That Moscow Is First WASHINGTON (NEAl- Leonid Brezhnev has told Hanoi bluntly Russia's national interests come ahead of Moscow's duty to aid North Vietnam. He advised Hanoi the time has come to be flexible and to zig instead of zag. He said that Russia could best serve the interests of world communism by building a strong Communist society in the U.S.S.R. and by taking International steps in cooperation with non-Communist countries to insure that Russia will not be militarily endangered. "What in fact are the most profound, vital interests of our people in the sphere of international life," said Vadim Zagladin, speaking for Brezhnev. "They consist primarily in a news commentary, in which he was really guaranteeing peace for our state and peaceful conditions for its development and for the building of Soviet society. They consist in insuring reliable security for our country and in guaranteeing the inviolability of what the Soviet people are creating..." He notes that Soviet foreign policy is determined in Moscow H. L. Hunt Writes STAY VIGILANT! To be aware of danger and to counsel for strength and preparedness is not to be warlike. At the end of World War II, the United States dismantled the greatest military force in history. Brave fighting men crossed the oceans and efficient defense workers labored at home combined to turn back the National Socialist thrust aimed at conquering the world for Hitler and Tojo. Contrary to communist propaganda, the profit-motive system works best in peacetime. The brave U.S. troops wanted only to come home and go to work after World War II. They ahd no desire to police the world, much less conquer it, as we had the power then to do if we had wished territorial gains. Instead, we freed the Philippines as promised, arid took no territory from the conquered homelands of Germany or Japan. Only recently we returned the island of Okinawa to Japanese rule. The great General Douglas MacArthur set the Japanese on the right road to development under the profit-motive system, and the Germans ignored socialist advice from the U.S. and their own country to create the "German miracle" of economic growth, with a little help from U.S taxpayers. No other conquering nation in history has been so generous with former foes and former allies as was Republic USA after World War II. Patriots of the U.S. can be proud of this record of peace and progress. We can also be proud of our consel of hope and strength in the face of the communist threat, which has proved more dangerous than the Nazi threat. We can joyfully support U.S. officials who will be entrusted with maintaining Law and Order as provided in the plans for the LAW-AID movement, for law and order in all nations. and not by foreign governments (neither in Hanoi nor the West) and that the Soviet Union is fully able itself without comment from North Vietnam or other lands to determine what is best in the interests of Russia and world communism. Brezhnev, through Zagladin, asserts strongly that it would serve no purpose for Russia to respond to President Nixon's toughness in North Vietnam by increased toughness from Moscow. That would not be wise, averred Brezhnev, because Soviet successes to date have been a result of flexibility, not rigid, robotlike responses. He told the North Vitenamese that their own successes in the past also have come from cleverly combining military, political and diplomatic techniques. He said that at present, however, the North Vietnamese leaders were taking the short-run view in resorting to military force alone and in asking the Soviet Union to act in the same unimaginative way. As noted above, Brezhnev used as his spokesman Vadim Zagladin, deupty chief of the Soviet Union Communist Party Central Committee's International Department. He broadcast the message to Hanoi and to Communist parties through the world in the peculiar way the Communist leaders have of moving obliquely against those fellow Communists with whom they quarrel. While the means for sending the message was indirect, the words were quite clear—unusually clear for Communist messages—and exceedingly blunt. This Soviet response came in an answer to a strong demand by the North Vietnamese that the U.S.S.R. step more vigorously in the Vietnam war to halt the United States. Hanoi asserted the struggle of one Communist country is the struggle of all and that each local struggle is an inescapable part of the world revolution. Hanoi accused Moscow of setting its own selfish national interests against the interests of the world revolution, which, Hanoi said, requires relentless attacks against the United States in order to force Washington to take one step backward after another. These Soviet statements should not be interpreted to mean that Moscow will not continue to probe and poke into the world's unsettled areas in an effort to use Soviet-aided local military undergrounds for its own purpose. It should not be concluded either that Moscow will no longer assist North Vietnam in its attempts to take over the South. What these Russian words do say clearly is that, in the final analysis, the Soviet Union does not at this time want a showdown with the United States.

Your Health By Dr. Lawreace Lamb, M.D. Patient Can Still Lead Full Life Dear Dr. Lamb — Wouiu you please explain the outcome for a man 54 years of age, weighing 145 who has arteriosclerotic heart disease and some blockage of one of the arteries to his heart. Now he is home and has had bed rest for two weeks and is up and can walk and can exercise. After he is completely released, how much work will he be able to do. He was a moderate cigarette smoker but on advice from his doctor he has stopped. What diet will he need? He likes fried foods and can eat them if they are cooked in vegetable oil and drained. Is there a chance of the closure in his arteries dimishing even to a small extent if he takes care of himself? Dear Reader—One of the most important medical problems we have is rehabilitating a person who has atherosclerotic heart disease or who has had a recent heart attack. After all, heart attacks are responsible for one out of four deaths from all causes in the United States. Every case has to be handled individually. It is not possible to know how much damage a person may have had during a heart attack until after he has started to show recovery and can get up and walk around. Only when the heart is used more can the doctor tell if it is going to be strong enough for the person to lead a relatively normal life. About all I can give you are some guidelines. As long as a person isn't having chest pain or discomfort or isn't excessively fatigued, the best exercise is to walk. The amount of walking should be gradually increased. No one who has had a heart attack should be doing any more vigorous exercise than walking for about three months after the initial attack occurred. This time is needed • to open the small arteries in the heart to provide detours for blood supply around the artery which has been blocked. Under careful medical supervision, some patients who have recovered well from their heart attack can do a little more vigorous physical activity sooner, but only with the doctor's advice. I have seen many men gradually build up their exercise tolerance to the same level or better than it was before their attack occurred. Stopping cigarette smoking is a must. I also recommend stopping coffee and all stimulating drugs. During the first three months, activities should be limited to a level that the heart rate doesn't exceed 100 beats per minute. Coffee, stimulating drinks and cigarettes all contribute to rapid heart rate. The world's most destructive jcid seems to stem from a sour disposition. Youth 's Living Ideals LIKE IT says over there in the editorial column, today is Father's Day-so let's devote some space to dear old Dad. We suspect not everyone is aware that this year is the first time Father's Day is observed as a new national holiday with full official legal status. That's because President Nixon last April 24 signed the Father's Day Act, an event followed by the designation of seven famous American fathers as 1972 Fathers of the Year. One of them is a Texan-none other than our own Roger Staubach who was named Sports Father of the Year by the National Father's Day Committee. The Dallas Cowboys' quarterback and Annapolis graduate was named most valuable player in the Super Bowl and also won the Bert Bell Award as outstanding player in the NFL. Staubach completed 59.7 per cent of his passes, throwing 134 in succession without having one picked off. When at Navy he won the Heisman Trophy, set records that still stand. He also won the Maxwell Trophy, lettered in basketball and baseball. Later he served off Vietnam during his hitch in the Navy. He married Marianne Hoobler, and the Staubachs have three daughters. He is interested in youth groups, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and other organizations. Off season he is a real estate executive. * * * OTHERS BEING honored today by the National Father's Day Committee include Vice President Spiro Agnew, national Father of the Year. Along with Staubach these fathers of the Year were named in their respective categories: Mike Douglas, host of the "Mike Douglas Show," television; "Doc" Soverinsen, musical director of the Tonight show, music; Vernon E. Jordan, executive director of the National Urban League, humanitarian; I.W. Abel, international president of the Steelworkers of America, labor, and Ted Brown, New York Radio personality and host of NBC's weekend Monitor program, radio. *** THE CITY Hall Cat and School House Kitty have insisted we spread the news locally that June is Cat and Kitten Month and something is being done about it. It seems the United States never has issued a stamp honoring pets. However, with the help of California Congressman George Danielson, the children of Elysian Heights Elementary School in Los Angeles hope to score a first with a stamp honoring Room 8, a cat who was their pet for IS years and became the nation's most famous cat. Although Room 8 died in 1968, his memory is alive and purring. The children and other friends have collected more than 200,000 signatures on petitions to the Post Office Department, asking for the commemorative stamp. Room 8. a stray who loved children, got his name because that was the number of the classroom he picked for a hangout.

Brown Memorial Auditorium wheels at City Hall are happy about it. It's all because of the success of the first show brought into the auditorium by KGRO. Approximately 1,000 fans turned out for the Faron Young Country and Western Show in the auditorium a week ago last night. They roared their approval of the entertainment provided by Sheriff Young and his Deputies and the pickin' and singin' of Bobby Bare. When the two-hour show was concluded the audience was clamoring for more. They made their wishes known by a standing ovation for Faron Young and his men-an ovation that bounced back and forth from the auditorium walls. We'd like to lay a bet now that the next attraction brought in by the same promoters will fill the 1.530 seats in the new auditorium. ¥ * * CITY MANAGER Mack Wofford said he hoped more attractions of the same high calibre would be brought to Pampa. Young, who has played in auditoriums all across the U.S. and abroad, said the Pampa auditorium is one of the finest. . "The accoustics," he said, "are fantastic and the auditorium is tops in every way." The entertainer also said the Pampa audience was one of the most receptive and appreciative he had ever played to. Young is a fine showman and combined his country and western musicianship with a line of comedy situations that kept the audience in a happy mood all evening. Personally, our musical tastes possibly could be ranked in a middle category somewhere between Van Cliburn's piano expertise and the fiddle virtuosity of those two bow and string artists with Faron Young's Deputies. We liked Van Cliburn and we liked Faron Young. Just how you explain that away, we don't know. Ordinarily, the uninitiated would expect to see members of a country and western group in cowboy attire-boots, levis, ten-gallon hats and the works. Not so Faron Young and his Deputies. They were impeccably dressed in double-breasted suits, white shirts and black ties. That's the modern trend, we're told. Even the rock and roll groups are getting away from the wild costumes. SUFFICE IT to say, Pampa is hungry for top-notch road show attractions and will patronize them. The first one was sort of a test-run and it was so well done and so successful it should come a lot easier in the future if the same high standard is maintained. The auditorium is sold out solid for four concerts to be brought to Pampa in the 1972-73 season by the Pampa Community Concert Association. It looks like a great entertainment year ahead for Pampa music lovers and theater-goers.
