' FEDERAL FUNDS DO IT that the west coast, California in lor, ij .enjoying .,*» cdnMnuajion of a wartime boom Jj without i|vfestidr)t . But if anyone believes that this boom is e result *rr*dly et private business enterprise, normal business demand, and a sound end prosperous general economy they are only kidding themselves. Uncle Sam is the boy behind the California boom. Uncle Sam is shelling out tax money In huge sums to keep the aircraft factories and their subsidiary industries rolling, to keep shipyards busy producing vessels, to keep electronic industries and guided missile industries going full blast for military purposes. Uncle Sam is the boy who meets many of the huge payrolls ;ln San Franciso, Seattle, San Pedro, Long Beach and San Diego, as well as other places, to provide p constant flow of cash into the economy. We are not saying this is all unnecessary. But we do say that in a day when It is being intimated that there is something immoVal about any effort to bolster the economy of the agricultural section of the land, it is also considered good and sound to completely subsidise a vast segment of industry along the west coast. What would happen if someone pulled out the rug from beneath this setup operating on a cost- plus basis which has taken over domination of most west coast cities ? We doubt that conditions will change. But don't ever worry about the small pittance that ANY price support program would ever cost the taxpayer. It's pretty small potatoes, compared with the tax money being poured out to support these industrial giants of the west coast. * * ' * TODAY'S WIZARD Boone News-Republican -- In the old days the man who saved mdney was regarded as a miser, today he's considered a wizard.

S. Congress in tip-top physical condition. How much, he may never know, for we who help pay these personal bills, fdr our $22,« 500-a-yedr lawmakers are bdrred frbm this Information. It's almost as secret as the formula for the H-bomb. Congress passes its Own regulations. Even the President of the United States or the Supreme Court cannot touch the rules by which Congress governs itself. And one of these regulations is to keep mum about the taxpayers' money the members spend on themselves — the type of expenseslhat the working man must pay out of his own pocket. A congressman or senator receives thousands of dollars in fringe benefits — in addition to his $22,500-a-year salary. There are things like free haircuts, free telegraph and long-distance phone privileges, free imported spring water, free masseurs in their own private gymnasiums, ttnd so on. Then, free vacations for themselves and families — sometimes under the guise of "official inspection trips." This came to more than $2,000,000 last year. One of the closest-guarded secrets Is the amount of hospitallzatlon — in the most modern hospital in the country, the Naval Medical Center in Bethesda. • Each year, hundreds of thousands of dollars in public funds go for the care and treatment of our lawmakers there. To help determine just how much money we donate to this cause, a reporter recently made a routine call to the hospital's public relations man. Specifically, he wanted to know how many of our lawmakers used the facilities of this this year. The chain of action was almost amusing — if not ridiculous. < The request was referred to the commanding, officer. • It was passed back to his, .assistant who roused the reporter from bed the next morning with a phone call that he was buck- passing the hot potato to the Capital physician. > The t physician, Dr. George W. Calver, got the request. Then the.reporter received a letter. "I regret," it said,' "that professional ethics do not permit me to give the information you request." Since when is it "professionally unethical" to let the taxpayers know where their dollars are going? :;..,..•.; Certainly, the security of our nation is hot involved in the disclosing of these figures. Paying taxes Isn't "professionally unethical." It seems more nearly correct tb say, however, that the current "public be damned" attitude in Washington toward the lowly iax- payer is. * * * SMALLER CARS Rock Rapids Reporter — One thing that we have observed the past couple of weeks while we've been away from home — is that there are a lot of people who a're buying and driving foreign made cars. All along the west coast we found that was true — and it is even more true on, the, islands — where the price of gas runs about 40 cents per gallon. Of course a lot of these cars are sold on "snob" appeal — but there are a lot" of them being sold because they'll travel a lot more miles on the same gallon of gas. We're wondering what reception Studebaker's new low price line will have. We're beginning to suspect that maybe Americans are ready to change from the bigger and more powerful cars we're producing each year and start buying lighter cars with a much lower operating cost. * * * BE CAREFUL IN WATER Lake Mills Graphic — The swimming season reminds us to remind everybody, young and old, to be careful in the water.
