2-Algofta (la.) Upper 6e* Moines Tuesday, June 12, 1962 et fle$ utotnes SAY PRESIDENT WAS TOO ROUGH RESPECTFUL ARGUMENT Grundy Center Register — After they recovered from their surprise that the Steel Companies decided not to raise the price of steel $6.00 a ton after President Kennedy in a straight from the shoulder demand that they do so, GOP leaders and newspapers couldn't say that the steel companies were entitled to the raise they had decided to make, as that would have put them on the side of the steel companies which is not popular company to be in. As they can t disapprove what the President accomplished for the people, their complaint is that the language the President used was too rough and not befitting a President of the United States, that a softer approach should have been used and he should have appealed instead of demanded. That's the way the steel heads want it and that is the way they could have given it a smiling reply of No. What language the President used to save the American people and our government hundreds of millions of dollars, is of I'ttle importance. It is what was accomplished that counts. There are times when even our Presidents have to treat them rough and this was one of those times. The President is not losing any of his presage because of what he said to the steel bosses. Our people like a big boss in the White House. That Kind of boss get things done. The language that is being used to criti- ;ise the President for the way he talked to the steel heads is many times more abusive. Is it more fitting to abuse the President of the United States than the heads of our biggest industry ? FARMERS SECOND CLASS CITIZENS? Lincoln (Neb.) Journal — Many persons hove hinted at it, but it must come as a blow to Midwestern businessmen as well as to farmers to have it said straight out. "It is neither practical nor desirable that farmers receive the same income on their labor and investment as non-farmers," a spokesman for the U. S. Chamber of Commerce said to the House Agricultural committee. Walter B. Garver, manager of the U. S. Chamber's agricultural department was saying that for some unexplained reason farmers are second class citizens, expected to benefit less from their work and to endure a lower standard of living than others in the nation. The goal of equal income for farmers and non-farmers not only is impossible to achieve, Garver said, but it also is "contrary to the public interest because it prevents social and economic growth". In other words, the Chamber spokesman contended, it is in the public interest that social and economic growth be achieved at the expense of a major segment of the national population, the farmers. * * * A friend recalls that there was a time when the parson was the only expert at preparing people for travel in outer space. — Van Buren County Register. Msgr. James P. Shannon, Pres. St. Thomas College in Minnesota Alumni Magazine — One mark of an educated man is his ability to differ without becoming angry, sarcastic, or discourteous. Such a man recognizes that in contingent matters there will always be a place tor legitimate difference of opinion. He knows that he is not infallible, he respects the honesty and the intellectual integrity or other men, and presumes that all men are men of integrity until they are proved to be otherwise. He is prepared to listen to them when their superior wisdom has something of value to teach him. He is slow to anger and always confident that truth can defend itself and state its own case without specious agruments, emotional displays, or personal pressures. Tms is not to say that he abandons his position easily. If he be a disciplined mind, he aoes not lightly forsake the intellectual ground he has won ot great cost. He yields only to evidence, proof, or demonstration. He expects his adversary to show conclusively the superior value of his opinions and he 'S not convinced by anything less than this. He •s not mtimiaated by shouting. He is not impressed by verbosity. He is not overwhelmed by force or numbers. H'S abiding respect for truth s viability enables him to maintain composure and bolcnce in the face of impressive odds. And his respect tor fie person and the intellect o 1 his opponent persuades him from using cheap tricks, caustic comments, or personal attacks against his adversary, no matter how brilliant or forceful, unjust or unfair, they may be. Because of his large views of truth and of individual human respectability, he is prepared to suffer apparent defeat in the mind of the masses on occasions when he knows his position is naht. He is not shattered by this apparent triumph of darkness, because he realizes that the mass-mind is fickle at best. At best he is neither angered nor shocked by new evidence of public vulgarity or blindness. He is rather prepared to see in these expected human weaknesses compelling reason for more compassion, better rhetoric, and stronger evidence on his part. He seeks always to persuade and seldom to denounce. The ability to defend one's own position with spirit and conviction, to evaluate accurately '[THESEWOMEN!

Uuui 6 i OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST FREE FOOD Humboldt Republican — The government through its welfare agencies, gives surplus foods ' to needy families. The program has grown to ' vast proportions. In such a vast program there are sure to be chiselers, and recent events in various counties indicate that some closer method of supervision should be established. A recent event in Des Moines indicates that a woman there had received surplus commodities and had then sent them to relatives. She paid postage in the amount of $5 on the shipment. So by what sort of reasoning should she continue to receive free food ? Humboldt county is not bothered by such flagrant abuses in the A. D. C. and surplus foods program. Elwin Hodges, who is in charge of this work, says that it is mjch ea-.ier to control the program in the smaller common,iiei, and Mr. Hodges is doing an excellent |ob m his department. When anyone q^cili'>ei 'or Aid to Dependent Children the/ cjtomaticall/ become elgjble tor surplus commodities Both A D C and surplus commodities can open a //ay for chiselers to get foods above their needs. Only close supervision and investigation can prevent abuses.

He's in the Navy. No one here knows about it except his parents and me. They're going to visit him this month and have invited me along but I know I won't be able to go until I give the reason and if I give the reason, I'll probably be told I can't go with him anymore. If I don't go to see him, he might not understand and I could lose him anyway. So what am I lo do? — Virginia. Dear Virginia: All you can Jo is stay home and have your boy friend's parents explain why you're not along. None of this would have happened if he had kept his hands at his sides but that's history. * # * Dear Dan: My girl doesn't drink and she doesn't want me lo drink. She's almost a fanatic about beer and liquor and what gripes me is that I only take a beer about once a week. Evcrytime we go out dancing and I order a drink, she just aboul blows up. I'm a guy of 22 and she's 19 and I Ihink I'm old enough lo have a drink once in a while without being given the kind of rough treatment she's handing out. Our friends says she's wrong but she doesn't know that. What do you think about this? It's getting worse cverylime we dale, — One Beer Boy Friend. Dear Boy Friend: I'm from the school Ihat believes a person who doesn't drink is better off than a person who does but I'm also broadminded enough lo believe a fellow having a drink now and then isn't breaking the law. This is something your girl and you are going to have to svork out and as you say, you're 22. If you give up your occasional drink to please her, one of two things will happen. She'll either think you're the greatesl guy in Ihc world and life will be smooth as silk or she'll make further demands on you. If you don't bow to her wish, you're running the risk of eventually going your separale ways. If she's as much against drinking as you say, Iherc's probably no happy compromise. It's going to have to be one or the other and which it will be will be for the two of you to decide. Just as an afterthought, I svould rate my favorite girl ahead of a glass of beer. * * * Dear Dan: I'm a girl of 12 and I have many favorite television programs. My father got mad at the entire family last night and said lie was sick and tired of having to say something three and four times Li-cause everybody would be paying attention to television and not to him. Now he says there will be no television all summer and today he took the set and stored it in the basement. I try to be a good girl and I think this is something he could have thought about before going ahead and doing what he did. Now Mom is mad at him and my little brother is mad at me because he said I started it all. Do you think my father was right in taking away our television privileges for the summer? — Leslie. Dear Leslie: Maybe your father wasn't right but I soundly approve of his action. More fathers should either take the sets and either store them away or unplug them for a' few weeks. Summer is no season of the year to be glued to the TV set. Get outdoors and enjoy the nice weather.
