Prize for his work toward a lasting peace in Central America and the Reagan Administration is Did the presidents cabinet and the president think George Shultz or Ronald Reagan was more deserving Or is this a simple case of sour grapes Interviewed on the Public Broadcast Systems News Hour Arias made several cogent Including a clear statement that Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega uses the existence of armed contras to Justify his Marxist economic system and repressive military Without the Arias Ortega would have no good reason for what he has Arias seems to be saying that Central American heads of state can better deal with Ortega on their own There is no reason to think there will be a blood bath if United States aid to the freedom fighters is interrupted un til 7 or even later than There is nothing that says contra rebels cannot withdraw and allow Arias peace plan the time in which to The Central American countries deserve peace and the right to bring that about without pressure from the United President Arias and the other heads of state could then tell Ortega you have no more Marxist experiment is your country is surrounded by democratic nations that will not tolerate export of your Work with us or be To borrow Nancy Reagans we could do worse than allow Central America of their own just say no to The hypocrisy of intervening in Central American affairs to the extent that we

Nobel committee chose to recognize that plan by giv ing the peace prize to He deserves our support and a chance to Justify that In this Ronald Reagan should be happy with whatever recognition he can

prison One prison board member acknowledged that as many as new beds will be needed just to stay even with pro jected inmate Hes right to point out that senten cing has become a Joke in Inmates are serving an extremely small portion of their and good time is being used as a method of crowd control rather than what It was intended to The prison system originally had wanted to build two but settled on four convict This is a good But there is a growing need for many more prison We can only hope this is Just a start to an ongoing prison construction pro Lufkin Daily News Accept trade agreement That trade negotiators for the United States and Canada were able to reach a lastminute agreement before an 4 deadline on a new trade treaty Is good news for both The proposed the result of

customer of the United States and the United States buys 70 percent of Canadas this treaty is not yet It Is threatened by protec tionist elements in the Con gress and by some heads of Cana dian

for a Demonstrators Its become the standard closing scene at Reagans infrequent news The goodnatured chief executive gets the of ficial Thank from a wire service but before he can retreat out the door of the East Room at the White the reporters are on their badgering Reagan for one last word It even takes place at He may enter the Rose Garden or the Roosevelt Room to the strains of Ruffles and but he often beats a retreat to a chorus of questions from the folks behind the ropes with the cameras and boom Reporters themselves wince at the negative image created by such beamed into millions of American living But they say the blame rests with Reagan and his who have sharply curtailed opportunities for the press corps to engage the president under more civil George press secretary to Lyndon Johnson in 196465 and now Lucius Nieman Professor of Journalism at Marquette Universi I very definitely put the blame on the White The press corps acts the way It does because all the regular channels of access to the presi dent have been cut Reedy But Stephen a Institution senior fellow who has written extensively on mediagovernment said that doesnt excuse the behavior of the reporters who act like unruly The Hess is largely confined to the White where television sets the When people talk about the Washington press corps theyre really just talking about the White House press Lou White House

is alleged to have done is seduce a young loot his ministry of millions of dollars and maybe grope some guys in the steam So whos perfect FalweU is upset because he took over PTL and tried to straighten out all the financial but his plan didnt satisfy a federal bankruptcy So FalweU has resigned and predicts that little Jimmy might soon be back running the combina tion religious resort and amusement leading the faithful down the water This prospect disgusts but I dont understand Judging from his news it is clear many of the PTL faithful still admire Jimmy and his wifs and dont care much
