,., o.,o 00oo.. TIMES 'Imft#m HARTFORD, KENTUCKY, JUNE 22, 1972 8 Editorial DO CHILDREN KNOW YOU LOVE THEM? Affection-starved children often develop a complex that persists with them through life. The dictionary defines affection as being a warm and tender attachment; fondness; love...A child needs af- fection. He needs to know (he is loved). Nothing can-substitute. Affection-starved children do not make the best Christians nor the best dinner at the home of a couple from our church. As is customary, we sat down to visit after the repast. The wife, who is now past middle age, and who has both children and grand- children, asked if we knew of a book on psychology that would help her overcome her troubles and dif- ficulties. ! asked for more specific information. The story goes back to her citizens. They have already childhood days. developed a complex that sometimes During her tender childhood years persists with them through life. They and through her all-important teen usually have a feeling that the world years, she had no affection, no love, owes them something, no one who cared. She told me that the A young girl who once attended high school with our girls was starved for a little affection. In an attempt to get it she would do anything from standing on her head to climbing a telephone pole. Although she was quite brilliant and capable, yet, because of the feeling that she was not wanted, at times she became sulky, un- manageable, undisciplined. Paul says to "teach the young love their children." (Titus 2:4) This was in the day when Rome ruled with a rod of iron. Love was misplaced sentimentality; children were to brought up hard, ruthless, despising the finer virtues so freely propagated by Christianity. The exhortation to love our children is of the Lord. It is His command. One evening we were invited to only kind or affectionate words she had ever heard came from the young man whom she married. Although she is a fine Christian woman and has two children in the ministry, yet she still has an in- feriority complex that torments her day and night. She is uncomfortable in the congregation, does not like to meet people, has times of agonizing depression and is miserable most of the time. This is by no means a singular case. Don't deprive your children of their God-given prerogative and heritage, especially when that which you give returns to you multifold both now and in later years. Let us truly love our children and tell them about it both by act and word. -- Excerpts from "How to Rear a Happy Family" USSR: First In Space Power Acomparative measure of the estnhfof the united States and the USSR is the number of space launches a year for each nation. In 1970, the United States launched 16 military-associated space vehi- cles. The Soviets launched M--31/2 times the United States effort. Overall in 1970, the Soviets sent 81 missions into space, while the United States launched but 29. In 1970, the USSR effort was at an all-time high, and the current trend is still up. In that same year, United States activity was at a nine-year low, and the current trend is down. The gap is widening. A casual visitor to the Cape Ken- nedy Space Center, the Vandenburg launch area, the Boeing Corporation, or any other United States aerospace research, development, and operations center would be shocked by the ghost-town appearance there. On the other hand, all is bustling at the Laek Baikinor, Plezetzk, and Moscow plants which the Soviets use for research, development and manufacturing associated with aerospace. With the trends noted by Jane's, Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird and others, the Soviets now---or very. soon--will have a clear military superiority over the United States in all major classes of weapons. They already have the capability to launch a major military space force to bludgeon the United States to ac- commodation on a particuoar request or demand. They are now able to use this military power for major space demonstrations. SCENARIO FOR SPACE How would it work? Assume, for the sake of an example, that the impasse continues in the negotiations between the United States and the USSR for the limitation of strategic weapons, and that the Soviet-sponsored European security conference is convened to "reduce tensions" on the Continent. Recognize that Europe is truly a Soviet hostage, with the north flank of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization outnumbered in men, ships and aircraft. NATO, in this scenario, is out- flanked on the south. Soviet naval forces roam the entire Mediterranean Sea at will. Soviet fighter aircraft are training in Algeria. Soviet naval and air forces frequent Egypt. Malta has offered Poland the use of her facilities for ships at the head of the Mediterranean. NATO is pinned down in the center with superior Warsaw Pact ground forces, airpewer and between 700 and 1,000 Soviet in- termediate range ballistic missiles targeted on western Europe. At an appropriate time in the European security conference, the USSR launches several orbital satellites. It tells the world they are orbital bombers. United States space detection systems verify the satellites' presence. The Soviets assert that the satellites are able to destroy any target in Europe--or the United States--but that their real purpose is to ensure a peaceful Europe. No nation can dispute the Soviet claim. No nation has a satellite in- spector or an effective satellite in- terceptor. That the satellites are really space bombs can be neither verified nor discounted. Then, to climax their ploy, the Soviets detonate a nuclear explosion over the eastern Atlantic Ocean, 50 or 100 miles out in space. All of Europe would be suitably impressed and would accept what, in view of this demonstration of Soviet military power, now seem very reasonable proposals for "peaceful coexistence" between the nations of eastern and western Europe. The United States, powerless, would be excluded. The only way to bar a Soviet military space operation such as this, intended to intimidate the United States and other nations and to enhance Soviet world power and control, is to counter with equal on superior United States military power. It means that there is an urgent national security requirement for the United States to develop and deploy military space weapons capable of at least neutralizing Soviet military space power. The ultimate alternative is United States acquiescence to Soviet world domination--and man's reach for the stars would be only at the sufferance of the USSR. --Washington Report Look Who's Talking PAUL HARVEY NEWS BEFORE YOU LEGALIZE GAMBLING by Paul Harvey More states, overburdened by welfare rolls and soaring costs for everything, are thinking about legalizing gambling. You'd think itlogical for the government to take over; that this would put gangsters out of business. What'll you bet? Before your state legalized gambling, a word of precaution. Granted, people will gamble. Some of us who do not play slot machines do speculate in the stock market and there's not all that difference. Except that, as the late FBI Director Hoover frequently admonished, "If you think legalizing games of chance starves out the criminals, look at Las Vegas--where the games are legal yet the hoods still deal themselves in and related vices flourish." Yet people will gamble. And the more security government provides, the greater the human hunger for a chance to take a chance. In Britain every tram car conductor sells lottery tickets. The British people have perhaps more guaranteed economic security than anybody yet they can't wait to gamble it away --$5 billion worth last year. Since the British government legalized off-track betting a year ago, the number of regulars who gamble doubled. Now several of our overtaxed United States eye enviously the $40 million a year which Nevada harvests from this source. Thirty-four states do allow some kind of gambling, if only, as in Kansas, bingo. President Carl Loeb of the Nationai' :C)uncil on crime and DelihclUficy ' says he believes the United States should legalize--then nationalize-- gambling. Let government operate gambling as it does in seven other countries. He says if we'll do that, the criminals would go broke. Yet in states where it's been tried, the criminals are still riding as high as ever. New York's state lottery has been a financial disappointment. Expecting to sell lottery tickets $30 million a month, they're selling $5 million a month. Legalized off-track betting is booming, yet the hoods continue to flourish. Philadelphia's Mayor Frank Rizzo identifies the factor we'd all overlooked. The gambler is gambling because he wants something for nothing. At least that's what he believes his motivation to be. He is willing to go into hock on the chance a big win will bail him out. He does not intend to divide that big win with the tax collectorl So he'll pass up the legal off-track betting and take his $2 to some back-room bookies who pay off secretly and in cash. So Mayor Rizzo says the only way legalized gambling can starve out the criminals is for all winnings to be tax free. possible that "right wing extremists" are not alone in fearing the possibility of an ultra-liberal President of the United States? The possibility looms ever closer as the South Dakota Senator gains campaign ground. Just what would McGovern do if he were President? The answers are frightening, and a good many of them are outlined in a special section of the May 26 issue of National Review. For a starter, McGovern would attempt to redistribute the income of Americans in the classical take-from- the-rich-give-to-the poor manner.The assumption behind the concept seems to be that the "rich" have a never- ending source of income that the government can tax at will. But, as Alan Reynolds, National Review Associate Editor, points out, "Even if we took every dime of gross income from those earning more than $100,000--not even leaving them subway fare--we would get only $16.5 billion, or about 5 percent of the amalgamated McGovern budget. The bulk of the expense simply must fall on the only sizeable group of tax- payers above the break-even point; on those earning between $12,000 and $20,000.00 That last sentence is the claims of the populist candidates. There simply are not enough "super- rich," or even "rich," Americans to support the rest of us in the style to which we would like to become ac- customed. Which brings us to McGovern's budget; what is he going to do with money confiscated from the rich? (Everybody knows what he is not going to do with it. He is not going to spend it on the war in Viet Nam, and he would cut defense spending by $30 billion:) McGovern's proposed changes in the Federal Budget, as outlined by Mr. Reynolds, involve increased expenditures (family allowance program, day care centers, urban renewal, pollution control, etc., etc. ) of $159 billion. His tax reforms (including increased inheritance and corporation taxes, minimum tax on wealthy) total $59 billion. Which adds up to a $100 billion deficit. "Added to the current anticipated deficit of $26 billion," writes Mr. Reynolds, "You have a net anticipated devicit of $126 billion, and a Federal Government spending approximately $350 billion a year, which would mean that governments--federal, state and local--would directly control about clincher that destroys all of the one-half of the American economy." MARILYN MANION Takestock in America. Did Hubert Humphrey call George McGovern an "ultra-liberal?" The question seemed too silly to in- vestigate; why would the pot bother calling the kettle black? But there it was, in the New York Times, no less. Well, now, Hubert Humphrey didn't actually pin the label on Geor But certain specialized Humphrey mailings into suburban areas are said to describe McGovern as "ultra- liberal." The charge is well-deserved, of course, but the interesting thing is that Humphrey strategists believe that will ct to it. Is it Buy U.S. Savings Bonds. STRAIGHT TALK TOM ANDERSON Multimillionaire Richard Nixon is the biggest spender (of yours) and the biggest saver (for himself) in the history of the Presidency. Wheeler- dealer Lyndon Johnson, former all- time champ, made most of his millions while in Congress. But only a few years ago Richard Nixon was virtually broke. The following information, inserted in the Congressional Record by Congressman Gonzales of Texas, explains in a small way why Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson and John Connally are fabulously rich and why our nation is broke: THE CRATCHITT MEMORAN- DUM--A TOP SECRET DOCUMENT (Or, The Big Nixon-Connally Steal) "(Mr. Gonzales asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute, to revise and extend his remarks and include ex- traneous matter.) "MR. GONZALES: Mr. Speaker, a few days ago, the President went down to the Picosa ranch to have a little dinner with Secretary Connally. Now everyone knows that if the President wants to see the Secretary, all he has to do is summon him across the street, from the Treasury to the White House. And if he just wants to have a social evening, well, that can be done right here in Washington. So there is no denying that this trip to the Piscosa spread, where carefully groomed cowboys watched equally carefully groomed cattle for the picturesque effect of it all, and where mariachis strummed gaily in the background, was more than a social event. By all accounts it was a political event of the first magnitude, because the President dined not just with Connally, but with 200 of the richest, most powerful men in Texas--what we call in Spanish" los pesados--weighty men. I call them the Picoso pesados. These are people who contribute mightily to political campaigns, and men who know perfectly well the meaning of the Spanish phrase, 'Don Dinero-- poderoso caballero,' which in English means, 'Mr. Money--a powerful gentleman.' ,'So whe the esi.dert hers down to barbecue with 200 of los pesados, it is not because he likes barbecue, and not because he is a gregarious man who enjoys parties, even at a ranch as elegant as the Picosa. There is only one reason why this trip was made, and that is political--to raise large amounts of political capital.- "Now we all know that Presidential travel is not cheap. Nobody knows how much it cost for the President to go to China, though we do know of the initial payment of $6 million in cash handed over to the Chinese to cover a few of the local bills. It is perfectly proper for the taxpayers to ante up the money for official travel, but when the taxpayers are called upon to cover the bills for political fun- draising safaris, that is another matter. "There are those who are responsible for paying the bills irr this Government, and I have just acquired a batch of top secret documents from the Treasury relation to the question of whether the taxpayers should foot the cost of the Picosa political ex- pedition. I call these documents to the attention of the Congress, in the finest tradition of current document leakage, because I consider this a prime example of one man's effort to save the taxpayer from a needless expense. "The Picosa expedition bills happened to be sent to an obscure Treasury clerk named Cratchitt, who was supposed to write the checks... "When Cratchitt got the bills for the Texas political trip, he rightfully concluded that these were not in- curred in the course of Presidential duty, but in the cause of straight, old- fashioned politics. Cratchitt himself cannot participate in politics in any way because of the Health Act, and he knows full well that not even the President has a right to foist political bills on the taxpayer, especially when YOUTH SURVEY the Treasury is $47 billion or so.
