TIMEX Your Pklvm Novsp@o 4 ll/kI(TFORD, KENTUCKY, MAY It), 1966 POLITICS -- AIN'T IT GRANDI By Tom Anderson Happy days are here agalnl Election tlmel In Tennessee and the other occupied states of the South everybody can get happy and vote, qualified or not. *rennesee Is doubtless th :only ,state where all candidates agree on one thing: TVA. The Tennessee River runs through three states and drains all the others--except Alaska, where there's nothing to drain. In 'rennesee TVA Is more ipop- ular than motherhood, now that over- population of the whole world Is and suggested they go outside and make love. Loverboy did go out- side, but not to make love. The husband knocked him head over heels down the stairs. The statesman who called the wrong roll had to miss a few roll calls, but he was able to vote for the Civil l{lghts Bill, because it was "the moral thing to do." Candidate G throws, In baseball parlance, a nothing ball. He ls neither fish nor flesh nor good red herring." such a serious matter. We cannever Candidate H be over-dammed. Not by a dam--"foul." site--and there will always bern,re damsltes, and a Corps of Engineers, and real estate men, and politicians who happen to own land In the area, and somebody off In Washington to pay for It all. llere In Tennessee we have a wide choice of candidates for high office. Candidate A Is In and knows .all the ropes. He's experienced. And I mean experienced. Candidate I ls also In. When he first got In, his dear old daddy cou|dff't charge groceries. Now tdddy is a very rich man. The an- swer to how to succeed in business without really trying is to have a son who Is IN. Candidate C Is a nice young fellow who has a lot In his favor-- Inexperience. Nor does he have any money. Some cynics say It's bet- ter to elect rich people, who don't have to steal. As I have said be- fore, most thieves are people who want, not bread, but pie a la mode; and most politicians are llke cock- roaches: it's not what they steal and carry off, it's what they fall Into and mess up. In a politician as in a bride, inexperience is best. Then there's Candidate D who also, Just coincldentally, got rich while in office. He has a knack for buying land which soon thereafter Is needed for expressways. is both fish and Candidate I is running In ord-er to withdraw in favor of the highest bidder. Candidate J appears to have :all the answers. He doubtless gets them from the psychiatrist whom he has vlslted several times a week for sev- eral years. Seems he has a split personality, and I can't stand either of them. I am undecided on how to vote on all of the above, except one, where the choice ls clear: I'm going to vote for the psychia- trist. A WAY OF LIFE By Harry Browne If you saw an opportunity to t a k e some money that belonged to someone else, would you take lt? Suppose you could be virtually certain that no one else would never know that you had taken It. Would you steal it? I n other columns, I have w'itten about the poor results that came from stealing, from accepting stolen money in the form of government subsidies. So, for brevity sake, I will not repeat my arguments for not steal- ins In this column. But rather, let s summarize them by saying that any act that Interferes coercively with another Individual will immediately initiate a reaction that will go against you. Your success in Life depends Candidate E reportedly "takes the upon your ability to help others get fifth" every day --bourbon. what they want--because this is what At a "whiskey roast" awhiletl, ackt induces them to give you what you Candidate F  a high official, hgh Want.  again--patted a young wife on what The Individual whb pr0vldes is now vulgarly called the "fanny" service of positive value to others ts always in demand--because thorpe others will not want to have to get along without him. But now back to the original lUeS- tion. Suppose no one would ever know that you had stolen, or lied, or In some way hurt another In- dividual.. Individual I there any purely prac- tical, way to prove that this is under- .tandable for the Individual? Yes there is. Just as you cJin never expect to be a concert pianlst without practicing when you're all alone, so could you never be a suc- cessful Individual In public without practicing In private. Your success depends upon your ability to provide people with what they want. This takes more than desire on your part; it takes prac- tice, technique, acquired talent. You begin by understanding what you must do to succeed. Then you practice it--as a way of life. You refrain from stealing in p rt- rate--Just as you would restrain from stealing in public. You are pleasant to strangers--Just as you would be pleasant to friends. You develop an attitude toward the Individuals in this world that is all-encompassing, away of life. You are determined to provide peo- ple with what they want--so that they will, in turn, prefer your services to alternatives that might exist for them. You respect any individual W h o has not proven himself unworthy of that respect. That doesn't mean you trust him with your life savings---- only that your attitude toward him precedes your determination that he personally might be a profitable ele- ment In your Hie. When the most profitable oppor- tunity of your lifetime arrives, you're ready for ft. You're capable of responding Immediately with a code of conduct that is by then a natural part of your life. You don't need to reorder your Life suddenly to take advantage of an opportunity that depends ypon your honesty, your respect and your abiLity to be of service to others. And your rewards are great-- be- cause you are a rare Individual, bne whose abiLity to help others get what they want is very unique. Such an individual will always be in great demand. He will have his pick of the most golden opporttml- ties. He is like the athlete who has trained himself rigorously for years to be ready for his Olympic contest. When the moment of victory arrives, he knows that every moment of train- trig has been well spent. Is it unprofitable to steal ev.en when no one knows you're stealing? Of course, because it diminishes your genuine ability to serve others and reap the rewards--no ma.tterWhat the nature of the rewards you seek. America shows dynamic progress... will your family share it? Everywhere you see a great future taking shape -- how about 3"our family's personal future? Will there be funds available for building or modernizing a home? For Johnny's, and Sue's, college? For emergencies? Special vacations?

Farmers in Texas' Rio Grande Val- ley have supported Our Leader by giving him a "mandate" to discharge from the public payroll the official U.S. carrot-measurer (s). The carrot-measurer(s) were em- ployed Under the terms of a market- ing order to determine whether carrots were six inches long. A six-inch carrot was a legal comma- dry but a 5-7/8 inch carrot was contraband. A grower once chal- lenged the authority of the govern- ment to discriminate against little carrots but a federal court said it was all perfectly legal, conceding that in, say, vegetable soup, the dimen- sions of a carrot are of no interest to anyone---not even another carrot. Well, It worried us a lot, thinking about some poor fellow(s) sitting around 40 hours a week measuring carrots and, worse, having to decide on borderline cases where it could go either way. Strictly judgment calls, as they say on the sports pages. All that is swept away now. The growers have notified the govern- ment that they no longer require the services of a U.S. Carrot-meas- urer. Curiously, the government refused to disclose the actual vote, saying only that it was a "clear mandate." Perhaps the new trend Is to keep secret all election returns and deal only in mandates--clean and muddied. Welcome, little carrot, to the land of the free and the home of the brave! Project Prometheus Richmond (Va.) Hews Leader The latest wrinkle in the United States office of education's continu- Ing campaign to improve the quality of American education is a summer program to be known as Project Pro- metheus. Under this program, 200 of Oregon's top high school students will participate in a six-weeks sum- mer course designed to stimulate their intellectual curiosity. During the course, the students will attend classes in 28 subjects, including one entitled "Human Mani- Thief." They also will "hear lectures by civil rights leader Martin Luther King, lib- eral columnist Walter Lippmarm, and labor leader Walter Reuther. Each of these speakers will be paid $850 per lecture. No spokesman for the conservative political view has been scheduled. ALl told, Project Prome- theus wili cost $94,500, or $470 per student, which will be covered by federal funds made available under title III of the federal aid to edu- cation bill. Prometheus, of course, was the figure in Creek mythology who stole. fire from heaven in order to give it to man. By naming its summer project after him, the office of edu- cation obviously meant to equate knowledge with fire and heaven with L.B.J. Perhaps, after their grim dose of liberal doctrine from Messrs. King, Reuther and Lippmann, the 200bright tudents may learn at firsthand.the meaning of the adage "Once burned twice shy." And if they're bright enought they'll have no trouble in discerning the intent of "human mani- pulation in the 20th century. Selling Charitable Wheat Columbia (S.C.) State) Perhaps somewhere from wirhih the dark recesses of Washington reasoning there will be forthcoming an explanation as to why we approved India's selling American wheat to neighboring Nepal. India has long been getting mil- lions of tons of "surplus" wheat under the Food for Peace program. For all practical purposes this is a giveaway deal. Adding to the con- fusion, President Johnson, only a few days ago, appealed to the world to join the United States in emergency shipments of food grains to india so that mass starvation might be averted. Few are the Americans whow o3a 1 d not willingly share our surplus food with others if by so doing thousands of lives could be saved. But when we give it away, and then the reci- pient of the gift starts selling the grain to neighbors even though for a "minimum economic price"--a lot. of people would like a better expla- nation than the mere statement that the transaction had our government's approval If Nepal also needs wheat to avert starvation, why does our government not carry out its own transaction instead of allowing India to become a middieman? pulation in the 20th Century."
