4-AI0ona (la.) Upper Dai MoJn*i Thursday, S«p1. 16, 196S TIME TO REASSESS For 20 or to yeors the United State* hai maintained an open purie and an Idealistic attitude toward all the re*t of the world. Some of the nation* we have helped have reciprocated with good will and development that ii enabling them to stand qlone, or with wt. But a majority have taken what they could get, and followed It up with question* at to what we can do next for them. Our Intentions have been good. But we have not achieved world peace and If anything we have unwittingly helped to lay the foundation for, wart. Pakistan and India are good examples. We have supplied both of them with economic and military aid. Now they are using the tools to fight each other. Perhapt In our ever-present fear of communism at such, we have overlooked the fact that nations do not need to be communistic to ytarn for each others throats, or to misappropriate funds and food and tools o* war In the Interests of the few Instead of for the good of the many. Our entire foreign aid and foreign relations program could stand a good reassessment, not to withdraw Into a cocoon bounded by the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, but one which can accurately see today's world In today'* light, and not that of 20 years ago. A QUEER SITUATION The warden at Anamosa reformatory has been quoted as saying that pill peddling and loan shark operations are hard to control, and are not at all unusual within the reformatory walls. That's a queer assertion. We thought a prison was a prison, run by wardens and guards, and that the Inmates were fjrlsoners who got food, clothing and a work assignment during their confinement — and nothing more. How do the pills get Into the prison, and where do the prisoners get money to loan, or for that matter what do they need to borrow for anyway? The warden says that "work gangs" which leave the reformatory have a chance to pick up pep pills, or whatever kind of pills they are, and that the Inmates are vulnerable to other temptations while outside prison wall*. .Maybe if the Inmates who are so "vulnerable" were kept Inside the .walls, some of the problems would disappear. In our softhearted kindly prison ways we seem to breed nothing but trouble. Why not try a different approach. * « • Know what to do if an elephant breaks a toe?

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST QUESTIONS THE SOUNDNESS Brltt News-Tribune — Hancock county jumped on the band wagon and formed an advisory committee and organized for the federal governments Economic Opportunity program. The rulet and regulations toy that you have to be organized In order to Implement any of the available programs to help the low income group of citizens. Without the formal setup you can't get any of the money that's supposed to channel down to meet 90% of the cost of any project you might dream up. (Locally we'll have to meet 10% of the cost either In manpower, existing facilities or cash). The group that met last week at the Brltt school In a public meeting to get the organization going, was at much perplexed after hearing the review of. the program at they were when they cam*. While the Idea wat high sounding at If It would cure most all domestic problems of the country, the possible good It could do for Hancock county seemed far and away. We venture that there It not a perton In the county that lacks for food, shelter, mdelcal or welfare care. We are taking care of those who are In need. Unemployment It a minor problem for there are jobs open for those who want to work. Perhaps the low pay scale on those jobs Is no Incentive for reliefers to get off the pub- lie roles, but the pay Is commensurate with his skills no doubt. The CAP Is one of education, and If there Is a possibility of upgrading the skills of local workers It may have some merit. But we think that the county advisory committee and the area action committee need to weigh this program with extreme caution before giving the green light to a host of projects that may serve only to spend money. DOUBLE LOSER Humboldt Republican — India and Pak- Itan are fighting over disputed Kashmir. Both are feuding with the United States for supply- Ing their opponents with military equipment. Since-each was delighted with the armament at the time It was given, and America has no part of their fraternal squabble, why can't they be sporting about It and just let us sit back and be a spectator of the fight — Instead ofr»rylng to blame It on us? India wants us-to mWke Pakistan behave. About the..only thing we derive from that reafflrmatlon, not really needed, that an Intervenor In a family argument always loses. CONTRIBUTES TO POVERTY Indlanola Record-Herald — If businesses could be given the same privileges that the government takes we might not have need for a poverty program In this country. During the past few weeks this newspaper has lost two employees to the armed forces. The loss has left us short handed In our mechanical department and we are finding it difficult to secure trained help as replacements. A few short years ago printing plants, and most other trades, trained their own future help under an apprentice type program. Now the government says that these boys must be paid a minimum wage with time and a half for overtime. The wage scale In most small towp printing plants will not permit this and as b> result we have a good many untrained young people walking the streets. The government sax* they are In poverty. We do not disagree with this but many of them need not be. In the Economic Opportunity Act Is a program of Job Corps camps. The government offers young people between 16 and 21 years of age $50 per month plus room and board, to "learn a trade." If printing plants and other trades could apprentice young men and women at $50 per month plus room and board a good many trades would not be saddled with the manpower problem they have today. Young people could be trained at no expense to the taxpayer. This Is another case of our tax money being used In competition with us. The only trouble with what we suggest Is that It Is too simple and there not not enough bureaucrats mixed up In It. West Berlin has 383 hotels. fO» AND ABOUT TEENAGERS by C. D. »mlth Choosing Between Brothers Problem IF x PATE THE I YOUNGER &RC>THER,THE [OLDER BROTHER WOULP NOT GO OUT WITH MB- THE WEEK'S LETTER: "I have a problem. I like two boys, who happen to be brothers. One of my girlfriends say that she has been out with one of them. I know this is not true. But one of these brothers smiles at me every time he sees me. 1 would like to go out with him, but I like the other brother best and think he would not go out with me if I dated his younger brother. What should I do? My girlfriend has the same problem." OUB REPLY: If a boy likes you, he will not like you any less if you go out with his brother. Re might be a bit unhappy if he asks you out, is refused, and then sees you going out with his brother. But, this isn't your problem, as neither brother, apparently, has asked you for a date. If you like both boys, the wisest thing you can do Is go out with either of them if you are asked. But, you won't have a very good time If you date one and go out with the Idea that he is "second choice" and you wouldn't have gone with him If someone else had asked you. Also, If you turn down dates waiting for a certain boy to ask you. you may be wasting your time That certain boy aiay never ask you.

The first angle is that you must find something to do. You must find something beyond loafing, something beyond fishing, taking pictures, seeing the Grtnd Canyon. This is no platitude. In every retirement •ret of America are men and women by the thousands who did not believe it, but who are living and dying proof of it. You have accomplished something with your days since you were about 18 years old. After forty or fifty years of it do you think you can stop? You cannot. Your mind, your body, and your heart are attuned to working. Your hands, no matter how big the pension they hold, must have § Job to do. It is nature that people work. It is contrary to nature that a fit human machine gives up *nd . You have talents— you would not hive survived on a job until retirement age unless you did have. Somebody somewhere —even If it is in the hills of Pakota— can use you- But If you have talents your lifetime career 4id not need— if you like figures and your job required that you tend an assembly line; if you liked mechanics and your job required that you sell draperies —somebody somewhere can use you. A classic case of what retirement is and is not, and what mutt be done with it, is § man who is unknown outside his small circle of friends. His name Is Eugent R. Gray. "I was loaded for retirement," he says. "I saw it coming fifteen years before I reached 65, and with the instinct of a squirrel began gathering nuts. "I switched my insurance policies to annuities that would start paying off at 65. I saved every* thing Mom and I could scratch from the budget. "We weren't going to be poor folks." And they weren't. Wh$n he went into retirement from his thirty-eight y«ars in, the oil business he had a pension, Social Security, the annuities and savings. He and his wile fondled their little strongbjo* of treasures and felt rich indeed. ACROSfl l.Outw fftfmeht 6. Rebuff 9.Wsw?:He*. 10. Biblical 11. Blue ribbon or cup U.For*. boding* 14.
