WTA0 Qvjacy 939 WSUI Uwa City Could we adjust to disarmament IS A BE pitching word Mis the multisyllable counterpart of motlfer home love and peace especially the lastnamed peace It is being pointed out by realists that nations could con duct war in the face of com plete disarmament so far as conventional weapons of war are concerned Men could fight with sticks and stones But that jarring note pretty much falls on deaf ears What adds a bit of cynicism to the matter is that the Com munist world taking its lead from the Kremlin itself ismore vociferous about disarmament and peace than the free world This is in spite of the fact that world domination by whatever means required has never been rescinded as the central goal of Marxism There are of course increas ing signs that the arms race is hurting the Communist econ omy more than it is ours But there arefew diplomats in the free world so naive as to take Communist professions of a de sire for peaceful coexistence at full value Deceit and treachery are principal weapons of com munism it be Russias orChinasbrand i T J1 v T But among peaceloving peo that includes muiti plied millions shackled by com munism behind the Iron Curtain is a for dis armament It long stridetoward Jifting the terribleburden of arms on the world economy along with be ing in the direction of abandon ing the resolvent of national dif ferences It was at this point that Rob ert B Shaw took over recently in a challenging article for the Magazine of Wall Street What he wrote was premised on these two alternatives facing mankind 1 Virtual destructionof bur civilization through nuclear warfare 2 International agreement to reduce the costof armaments On the assumption that man kind would be wise enough to choose the latter course he pro

rather quick disarmament Its no secret as Shaw pointed out that many are afraid of complete disarmament A high level of military spending has imbedded itself in our way of sudden cessation its reasoned would almost certain ly invite depression The Magazine of Wall Street writer understands this point i of View but he insists that by plan ahead the crisis could be averted His idea is to divert huge defense expenditures into those areas of our country where they will offer new avenues of growth and revital ize stagnant regions take up the slack of unemployment and provide new jobs and prosper ity in an expanding economy His case makes sensed This year our defense expen ditures will exceed billion When this is spent we will have little of permanence to show for it Consider what billion would do channeled into con structive investments The huge reduction of taxes alone would make possible a tremendous in crease in the purchasing power of our people The magnitude of armaments costs can be realized when we compare it with other items in our economy Elementary and secondary schools includ buildings cost only bil lion a year Thats only a little more than a third of our annual outlay for our military This isnt to say that adjust ing to a peace economy wont lake some doing Some of our Urger corporations draw 50 per Torn 2 Please North Iowa Mostly cloudy wit scattered showers

chance for liquor change Most Want it as Erbe DES MOINES is no possibility thatf liquor bythe drink will be approved by the 1963 Iowa Legislature because most lowans are satisfied with the present liquor t control laws Gov Norman Erbe said Monday think it will be passed by the next session of the legisla ture or ever will be passed until people in communities in Iowa have liquor control enforcement as now provided in the Iowa Code and demand a change by the legislature he said Locally the situation is just the way people want it Erbe added Asked for his personal views on liquor by the drink Erbe said That is a moot question since as governor of the state the question isv not going to be pre sented to me and my views are of no significance This isnt a question of reve nue It is a question of morals If t were approached on a revenue basis the state could get into slot machines horse racing and gam bling But the people of Iowa are not discard morals for reve nue Most people in Iowa feel the liquor control act ie the est way to makeliquor available o those who want it Probably over 2 million peo Ie in Iowa have respect for the awand obey jt Erbe said He added that a few people in some communities Avant the law enforced the way they prefer it and not as he legislature in tented it A Harold H u g h e s Democratic candidate tor governorin the June 4 primary has proposed that liquor by the drink be adopt ed and said this would increase revenue to the state by more than million Asked about alleged violations of the liquor Jaws Erbe said it is up to local authorities to en force the laws and they are en forced in the manner in which people who elected theofficers prefer He said it is not up lo the state to see that the laws are enforced in local communities Several years ago the attorney jeneral Dayton Countryman ried to substitute state law en forcement for local law enforce ment and it was a sad experience The state did not have the sup port of local authorities Erbe said Erbe said there is a possibility Rowans would vote for liquor by the drink if present laws were rigidly enforced But he added that this enforce ment would have to come at peal level and there is no agita ion for a change News in a nutshell FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES Promises Russ space feat cosmonaut Maj Yuri Gagarin the Soviet Union put its third manned spaceship around the
