4—Algeno (la.) Upper Dei MolnM Tfiundoy, Jun* 17, 1965 KING FOR A DAY TO SUMMARIZE The state legislature, before quitting, approved a state budget that will total $276 million, compared with the present budget of $208 million. It is estimated that $224 million will be collected through present state income, plus "growth" through increasing economy. Several added tax increases were voted, and those increased revenues will narrow the income-outgo gap. It will probably be necessary to dip into the state surplus to balance the budget, but that will be offset in part at least by two "windfalls" after the first of the year — state withholding income taxes and monthly remittance of sales taxes. However, the monthly sales tax remittance will not be required IF the taxes collected in the preceding month DID NOT total $500. So, most small businesses will continue on the quarterly return basis. IKE SPEAKS OUT If anyone other than former president Eisenhower had said it, the poor soul would probably be in for some caustic criticism. But Ike had a few comments to make on the recently concluded Gemini 4 space flight that boiled down to a statement that "we are spending too much money on it." Asked about the future efforts to fly to the moon, he said "I don't believe in stunts." There is no question about the bravery of the astronauts, but the whole basic program can well be asked a few questions. Just what are we trying to do? Just what of real, basic value, is the whole program? Scientists may have the answers but the common man does not, and he would like to hear them. There are several other avenues of adventure which could stand reassessment at the moment, and the "all out" space program Js one. The current Viet Nam engagement, one that seems to be growing with each passing week, is another. The other day they opened a new PX at Q new American base In Viet Nam, and 60 clerks went to work at a given signal, dispensing cameras, watches, tape recorders, deodorants, film packs, portable refrigerators, small electric fans, and similar items from a huge warehouse. Some of the items make sense; others do not. Viet Nam is no bargain basement deal. The war is no joke, and for those in it a Spartan viewpoint is needed. It Is a deadly, costly, and questionable part of our current foreign policy and one can only wonder [ust how clearly we are seeing the picture. &pper Sea HIE.

OFFICIAL, CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST TRIBUTE TO THE LADIES Perhaps the women folks hove felt that • he record-setting astronaut feat of four days in space around the world has been pretty much a man's ego builder. But the ladies had a part in it that hasn't been so well publicized. It seems that 14 months ago a manufacturer of women's bras and girdles in Massachusetts received an order to develop and manufacture extravehicular suits in time for the flight. The "extravehicular" suit is the one that the boys put on when they open the hatch and go for a walk in space. The women's girdles manufacturer, with competent help from its staff of women designers and women experimenters, and with women used as guinea pigs in developing the models, was asked to move his completed garments schedule up by several months, and did — and the experience gained from making bras and girdles for the ladies paid off handsomely for the men, so perhaps the ladies are entitled to take at least a small bow of accomplishment. PRAISE FOR GREIGG Emmetsburg Democrat — When Stanley Greigg of Sioux City, our new congressman, was in Emmetsburg recently he said he intends to represent "all the people in all 18 counties In the Sixth District." This means hundreds of farmers and others in Palo Alto County who approve of the government's feed grain program will have representation. They haven't had it in the years retiring Congressman Charles Hoeven has represented them. There were some among us who were not over-joyed when Palo Alto County left the old Eighth District and landed in the Sixth represented for so many years by the ultraconservative Hoeven. On top of that we found ourselves In the extreme eastern end of the new District and a long way from Hoeven's home base or philosophy. Well, Stan Greigg Is In. His liberal and progressive views, in our opinion, are far more in tune with a county like ours which isn't hidebound on Election Day. Greigg has even taken care of the "distant" counties in the District. He is setting up one of two "branch offices" in Emmetsburg to serve the people In this end. We wish him well. Meanwhile, Mr. Hoeven, just before leaving office,,wasn't above making a junket to Africa and the Near East at government expense. The official reason for the trip was to inspect the "Food for Peace", program. Drew Pearson has written a jesting report of the junket that can make you howl. Among other things Hoeven and several companion congressmen found, the columnist says, was that "hotel accommodations were excellent in Addis Ababa and Leopoldville but elsewhere did not measure up to sumptuous European standards." We suppose Hoeven is no more to be blamed for such free-loading jaunts than others who make them but for one who has been so free with his criticism the last 22 years he isn't exactly consistent. * * * Those who stand at the top of any profession must be prepared for jealousies and criticism.

THIS WEEK'S LETTER: "I like (maybe even love) a boy who is much older. Sometimes he makes me feel that he likes me and other times acts as if he doesn't care for me at all. We have never gone out together, although we have skated together at the rink a few times. My friends tell me to forget him because he is too old and probably has another girl on his mind However, 1 can't forget him. 1 care too much. What should I do?" OUR REPLY: Accept the advice of your friends and forget him. If he is too old for you. the sooner you forget him the better. If there is a difference in your ages, you can be sure that he never intended to be anything but friendly. If you contniue to see him at the skating rink, be friendly, but make up your mind not to have any thoughts about getting serious. Even if he asks you for a date, you will be wise to turn him down. There is no future at all for you in dating an older man. You can also be certain that your parents will object and, probably, will object strenously. Almost any girl finds it flat tering to have the attention of an older boy, but the truth is that the av#rage boy just refuses to date a girl who is much younger than himself If your "friend" is a good friend, don't expect any more than friendship — and see that it remains that way.

An engineer with the soul of a bookkeeper, Gilbert H. Hicks, has come up with a dramatic example of this, and with a budget showing he has more spending money on a $6,800 retirement income than he formerly had on $15,300. It is Mr. Hicks' thesis that a person's manner of living does not necessarily change in retirement because of decreased income. "If a person who lives an improvident life," he says, "has put his excess funds into maintaining a front rather than into savings, and has lived on expense accounts, then he may have to hang his head and sneak away to the boondocks. "But for the great number of middle • class provident persons the difference in spendable money before and after retirement is less than is generally thought." Mr. Hicks explains he has kept accurate accounts of family expenditures since 1939. "During the period 1939-1961 we educated three children, paid for our house, and laid up savings equal to 20 per cent of our income. "This was not a crash schedule. We lived comfortably, had a drink before dinner, and still wore clothes . . ." Here is the Hicks budget for 1960, as compared with the retirement budget of 1964: 1960 1964 SHELTER $950 FOOD $1050 OPERATING $450 CLOTHING $400 PERSONAL ALLOWANCE • $350 $2100 ADVANCEMENT $2800 $350 AUTOMOBILE $550 $6050 SAVINGS None $3300 TAXES $350 $350 MISC. $200 (The 1964 budget adds up to $6900 instead of $6800 because the items are given in round figures.) The two keys to the Hicks budget, of course, are the taxes, which benefit all people retiring, and the savings, which the Hicks went in for much stronger than most people do, and stopped entirely on retirement. The person who defers part of his salary for several years before retirement gets the same effect Mr. Hicks did — he trains himself to be satisfied on less. So does the person who goes in for heavy installment purchases before retirement, and adjusts to a lower standard of living while paying out. N.w GOLDEN YEARS 36-paj. bookUl oow ready.
