News & World Report, published a survey of the business and economic out- ook for 1964. Every indicator on their joard, except two, showed prospects upward; more spending, more prosperity, more gains.

Everything else, mostly the result of (business optimism and buoyamce, was on the upswing. Europe, too, the periodical said, and Canada and Japan are expecting more iboom, with more jobs than people in some countries, particularly West Germany. In Communist areas of the world, however, the outlook was bleak, with hunger and scarcity rampant. This, it is obvious, is in glaring contrast to the West. The outlook for the Communist empire to remain the world's poorhouse and for these countries to fatt farther behind the West. This is not without its irony. Today, the world's chief government-ran tyrannies are in famine. At the same time, the chronic .problems arears in 1 the U.S. that are not keeping up— with the President's announced drive on poverty, should fea 1 - t|ure this story in headlines, suggesting that 1964 may well be the Affluent Year. The "affluent society," you know, is the phrase of John K. GaiKbralth of Harvard, formerly on the Kennedy staff and later Ambassador to India. His view is that too large a portion of the wealth of Americans is in private hands, that too little belongs to the government. Just where Mr. Galbraith stands with regard to the "war on poverty" amid such prosperity, we do not know. Perhaps he too would have the federal government eliminate poverty by bringing every family up to $3,000 in yearly income. But this would! hardly do, for this would increase the wealth in (private hands. Several more billions (borrowed) would thus be required for socialized subsidization of the poor. The nation presently spends about $44 billions ($31 billions of it federal money) each year, to help the needy, but it has not, so far, eliminated poverty. Expanding the private economy would be toad, in Mr. Galbraith's view. All of this private affluence predicted for 1964 would serve to degrade our citizens and undermine the society. More government for a recession. Well, we begin to see the ambiguity of the position that everything must be done by the federal government. These liberal G-Men like to insist that they know exactly just how everything should be done. They would be completely at ease in the all-powerful State as long as THEY control it, just like the Communists. Big Sam could easily solve the unemployment by hiring 4,000,000 or more who are supposed to be out of work. Everyone is entitled: to a job, you know, even if it's a' government job. It takes away your breath, what the government can do for you! The trouble with all this is that it is morally wrong in a free society for the State to seek control over the lives of its citizens. It is moral weakness for the citizen to submit himself to the mercy of the .government's bread lines in time of prosperity. Charity and help for the unfortunate have a place in our society already, President Johnson notwithstanding. But no this! When this nation comes if) the place where the government has to guarantee every one a job or so much income two chickens in the pot an< labor (unemployment) and agriculture—are the very areas where government has dome the bulk of its tinkering and adv justment. It is also ironic that the magazine, almost coincidental rwo cars in the garage (one a Volkswagen), we are finished! Medicare, at the top of the isit as one of the big .gruns in ighting poverty, would cost about $1 billion annually to be:in wii^h and nobody knows low much later. This medical 1 care for the aged, under Social Security financing like most of the programs of compulsion, is not needed. With the Kerr-Mills >lan providing help now to jhose who can't afford it, private health insurance programs already cover most everyone. At the end of 1963, 60% of Americans over 65 had private plans, and' the total coverage is more than 145 million persons of all ages. One might ask: Whose welfare, yours or the State's? Dr. M. V.

WE WILL BE AT Farmers Co-op Gin Wellington On Mon. May 4 When we think of the beginning of The Greenbelt Electric Coop, we think of kerosene lamps, coal or wood-burning stoves, rub boards, carrying water from the well; and NOT having air conditioners, refrigerators, deep freezes, vacuum sweepers, electric stoves, electric welders, pressure pumps, electric fences and many other modern appliances. When we received our first electricity on the farm it was like a dream come true. We want to congratulate all of the Greenbelt people on the fine service they have rendered over the past 25 years.
