Predict Setback In U.S. Business 1 Workings of '? An Idle Mind I N VACATIONING, as in space (ravel, the crucial problem is re-entry. And il doesn't matter much what kind of vacation you come b;ick from, either. Take my case, for example. When I was a young man -- a younger man. that is -- my idea of a vacation was |o go lo New York City. 1 wanted to laugh. [ wanted to sing. I wanted In be a free spirit. My vacation days were a di/./.ying succession of going In plays and movies, staying out past midnight and drinking sloe gin fi/./,es. Once I even spent the night at an all-night drug store. Needless. In say. I had some great limes hut I'd invariably return lo my job exhausted, on I ho verge of collapse, and badly in need of a .vacation. Then, as Hie years went by and my personal life became mure chaotic. I began to seek a certain tranquilily in nn vacations. /•'Iri'/m; the hurln-linrln of Hie. cilk'x I iranld <i<i n\> to inirtln'rn Michigan • God's Country. the theolwtians like to call il • • find live the contemplative lije. 1 lislened lo music, read books, sunned myself and, when the urge for excitement came over me, I drove into lown lo walch a game of bumper pool. I T IS A life - style that encourages one to consider I he deeper meanings of things, to look at the Big Picture. Its only drawback is that it's addictive. Having seen the Big Picture, how does one go back to writing about the Iowa Legislature'.' You return to the job froili such a vacation not refreshed, but with a leaden spirit, as one whose parole has been revoked. The upshot of all of this, of course, is that the employer is cheated. He gives his workers vacations on the theory that they will be belter workers for it. What, he yets instead arc employes who return jrom. vacations unfit /or honest labor. There is only one solution to (lie problem: Give employes an extra week of vacation. But instead of letting them do what they want "with it, require them to show up at the office and sit around all day. This will allow them to ease back onto the job without suffering a case of the bends. In addition, it will provide them • with valuable executive training. Gee, I wish I were hack in Michigan. T GOT SOMK interesting -L mail while I was gone. My favorite letter (addressed to the publisher of the paper, no less) said: "This is to Ml you how very much we are enjoying Donald Kaul'x vacation. Why not extend it? ..." Smiling, the boy fell dead. T JUST FOUND out about an J. absolutely fantastic organization, the American Ordnance Association. It's been around since 19i<) but I didn't know about it until now, which is why I never mentioned it before. It is an organization of citi/ens — engineers, scientists, people like that mostly — that seeks to function as "a liaison between industry and the military in building armament preparedness and industrial readiness for our nation's defense." Isn't thai wild? We're spending $Hli billion n !/car on armaments and these cats want to increase military industrial communications. The Defense Department and Hie armament industry need liaison like Elizabeth T,aylor needs a paddexJ bra. Maybe once, in the 1920s and '30s, the military needed a friend in court; an independent organization to speak up for preparedness. But now the shoe is on the other throat. You don't provide a grizzly bear with a body guard. Listen to this statement put out by the association: "Since armament is not a normal product oj our American industry, special ejjort is needed to build a close IV o r /c i n y relationship between America's partners jar preparedness — (he military . . . industry and science. ..."
