2-Algeno (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, December 25, 1962 et fle$ Utomes MOON MADNESS Is it Moon Madness? No, we are not referring to a new song hit. We are just wondering about Uncle Sam's multi-billion dollar "man on the moon" project which is gobbling up not only every space dollar that is around but also most of the scientists and engineers — so many that not enough are left for other vital public and private programs, according to authoritative sources. In fact one Congressman, Chet Holifield, chairman of the Atomic Energy Committee of the House, has dubbed it "Moon Madness." Plans of the National Space Agency, which is in charge of the moon project, call for recruiting 1,000 graduates of advanced college courses each year in science. The NASA plans to employ 25'' of the country's young scientists. This certainly will solve the problem of employment for the young graduates, but it looks also as though we are putting most of our eggs in one basket. Meanwhile the proportion of students enrolling for science and engineering courses is declining. So, most of them will wind up working for the government. If we ever do put a man or two on the moon, we trust that whatever they find there will be duly appreciative of all this sweat and strain on our part to intrude on their Moon privacy. IOWA CORN SONG Rock Rapids Reporter — Following a paragraph here last week in which we mentioned the Iowa Corn Song as traditional at University of Iowa football games when the bands strike up, we were contradicted flatly by some of our close kin-folk. The "corny" song is NEVER, but never, featured at the university shindigs, we were sternly informed by our dissenters who are loyal alumni of the school. Maybe the "Iowa Fights" song and other college ditties, they said, but not the "We're From loway" tune. Okay, okay, but we notice it will be played at the Rose Bowl game on New Years Day by an Iowa High school band selected to parade at the California tilt. The Boone High school marching unit will feature the Corn Song in its Los appearance. So somebody must like it. XiSW-n i&'~ *.' tu* * * Sr ff ........................

There aren't as many people actually working as you may have thought; — at least not according to a report taken from a western daily newspaper. The population of the country is 170 million people but there are over 62 million of them past 60 years of age, leaving 108 million to do the work. Of that number there are 64 million under 21 years of age which leaves 44 million to do the work. Then there are 21 million employed by the government, and you and I know they don't work. Ten million are in the armed forces which leaves 13 million to do the work. Deduct from that the 12,800,000 who are in the State and City offices and there are only 200,000 left to do the work. Of this number there are 126,000 in hospitals, insane asylums, and so forth, and that leaves 74,000 to do the work. Now, take out the 62,000 who are bums or social parasites who won't work and you have only 12,000 left to do the work. It may interest you to know that there are 11,998 people in jail and they don't work so that just leaves 2 people to do all the work. THAT'S-YOU AND ME, BROTHER, and I'm get ting tired of doing everything by myself I * + * BIG LAND SCANDAL COMING? Indications are that one of the greatest land scandals in many years is about to break, centering on the sale of sight-unseen real estate in Florida and the Southwest, principally. Speakers at a meeting of the National Association of Better Business Bureaus in Kansas City describe it as potentially the "greatest land scandal in recent American History." Investors are said to already have lost $100 million, and this is just a start. Many people have been lured by direct mail and magazine and newspaper ads to buy land for retirement and investment purpose, sight unseen. Sometimes this represented life savings. But, some of the land offered is under six inches of water on the Texas coast; land atop a mountain and almost inaccessible near El Paso; land in Florida out of water only half the year; land that is wind-blown desert although advertised as having all utilities and highways. Well, we're glad we saved our postage and didn't yield to temptation. FOR SHORTER SHORT BALLOT Grundy Center Register — Our ballot at the late election was somewhat shorter than it was at any previous general election. There was no complaint from any of the voters because the ballot didn't have as many names on it as at former elections. Voters didn't miss the usual names that were taken off by the last legislature. The next legislature should trim the ballot some more.
