She also was asked to discuss a Range of bilateral agreements on shipping science Kentucky candidate too Good to be True and technology and meteorological matters she has exerted Domestic influence As Well. Mrs. Kreps was one of the first to argue for a tax Cut to stimulate the Economy. And when Carter s relations with the business Community were on the ebb she organized discussion sessions Between the president and top business executives Jack Carlson chief economist for the . Chamber of Commerce. Says mrs Kreps is More effective in Selling Carter policies to businessmen than either Stuart Eizenstat Domestic affairs adviser or Hamilton Jordan Carter s chief adviser. Carlson who was an assistant director of the office of management and budget in the Ford administration rates her As above average. Quot past Commerce secretaries have been out grazing in the pasture a he says Quot but Many times now when members of the business Community meet with the president it s because she sets it when mrs.

By Martha Angle and Robert Wai ters newspaper Enterprise Assn. Louisville. By. Nea the partisan crowd filling the hotel ballroom rises with a Roar of approval As they enter a the a too Good to be True Quot husband and wife team that seemingly personifies the american dream. He is John y. Brown jr., the ruggedly handsome 45-year-old entrepreneur who became the a boy wonder Quot of the business world in the 1960s when he parlayed a $500,000 investment in a fast food Enterprise into a $35 million personal Fortune. She is Phyllis George the 29-year-old former High school cheerleader from Denton Texas who combined dazzling Beauty and an effervescent personality to win the miss America Crown then achieved celebrity status As a network television Star. They were married on St. Patrick s Day spent two weeks honeymooning in the Caribbean then flew Back to Browne a Home state of Kentucky. On March 28, he announced his candidacy for the democratic gubernatorial nomination a and that a when the controversy began. As tuesday s primary election approaches Brown himself is becoming the dominant Issue in the Campaign the nine candidate race probably will culminate in a plebiscite on Brown s wealth his lavish Campaign spending his a Jet setter Quot image and his a High roller Quot lifestyle Brown s aides offer Only inconclusive replies to questions about the size of their Campaign budget most of it derived from the Fortune the candidate amassed in a Trio of fast food ventures a Kentucky Fried Chicken and to a lesser extent lumps and Ollie a trolley when pressed they acknowledge plans to spend a More than of million a but knowledgeable observers Here believe the final figure will be twice that amount a or More contenders for governor and senator in several other states have lavished considerably More on races in recent years but Brown probably will a spend More Money in less time than any other candidate for statewide office in the history of american politics. In the two months Between the Day he entered the race and the Day of the primary elections. Brown will have mounted a Campaign that can Only be described As the Best that Money can buy. Broadcast time for his ubiquitous television commercials has been purchased not Only on stations All across the Bluegrass state but also in neighbouring Ohio Illinois West Virginia Tennessee and Indiana. Washington political consultant Matt Reese who specializes in establishing effective but expensive Quot instant grass roots political organizations has been imported to enlist 15,000 kentuckians As Browne a precinct and Block leaders for a massive get out the vote drive on election Day. Helicopters ferry Brown and miss George to Campaign appearances throughout the state in a dazzle dazzle political operation that a Long on Pizazz but Short on substance leaning heavily on a Campaign slogan. A John y. Brownjr. Means the candidate generally has confined himself to vague promises about using his business savvy to streamline state government and improve Kentucky a sagging Economy through Industrial development. But his obvious Lack of interest in dealing with a Host of other Tough Complex issues led the Louisville courier Roumal the states biggest newspaper to dismiss Brown As a the campaigns in an Era when 60-second television commercials have become the dominant form of communication Between office seekers and voters the contest merits National attention because of Browne a emergence As the quintessential a Media the question facing the voters Here a and to a lesser extent in other states a is whether personal Charm a vivacious wife a a Media Blitz Quot virtually unlimited financing and driving ambition can be effectively substituted for a candidates substantive position on most issues. Libraries full of information by Paula Huey assistant librarian Albert Lea Public Library the future will always sur Erise us but we need not be dumbfounded. This was the message conveyed to a group of librarians by Joel Barker a consultant for Northern states Power at the recent Minnesota Library association convention in Moorhead. It was a Good message to hear since most people tend to be pessimistic when thinking of the future. But instead of fearing or dreading the future and the change it will bring try to learn All you can about it and you May still be surprised but probably not dumbfounded. Sometime after 1990 but before 2005. So it s not too soon to Start learning about it. Life in the future will definitely contain More computers. But if you Haven t mastered cobol or Fortran done to despair it wont be Long before computers can be programmed using Normal English speech. Computers Are also getting smaller. A the Home computer books by Len Buckwalter and a a beginners a guide to Home computers Quot both extol the Virtues of a computer in every House. They can do everything from helping you keep track of expenses to beating Vou in a game of chess. So whether you need in formation to help you prepare for the future or just Cope with the present come to the Library for help Impact on society he referred to the Ever increasing cast of farm land which is caused by the Farmers themselves who Are continually striving to expand their acreages rep. Kalis pointed out that when a Large farm absorbs another farm that Means one less farm place one less farm family fewer people to shop in Small communities and fewer children in the smaller schools he told the Young people that a we have to show that we Are interested in society. Then society will give us an rep Kalis related a personal Story about his Early Days of farming. When he was trying to buy some land of his own. He said an aunt decided to sell her farm and gave no the Opportunity to buy it. She could have sold for a higher Price on the open Market but sold it to Kalis because she knew he was dedicated to farming he told the of fears that a if you really want to do something and put your heart into it Quot you can do it. His message to Young people considering careers in agriculture can apply to Young people considering any career. Essentially it Means that in addition to making an Effort to improve ourselves financially we should also be concerned about improving the society in which we live. Too Many of us concern ourselves with our own Quot net Worth Quot while allowing our communities to fend for themselves. Our a self Worth Quot suffers As a result. While i m not one to give politicians credit for giving me anything i must credit rep. Kalis for my new wrench set. A Large number of door prizes were awarded to those attending the Fra banquet and since i was among the late Comers i was absent when the tickets were distributed. So was rep. Kalis. So when the Call went out for anyone who did not have tickets the representative waved his arms and attracted All sorts of attention. As a result. Kalis mrs. Kalis. Kates Mike Hergert and i All were properly equipped with tickets. I won the aforementioned wrench set. Kalis won a grease gun and Hergert won two cartridges of grease. I done to know what Mike intends to do Witt his grease but with wind blown afro hair style he has been wearing lately i have a suggestion. The worst joke of the week the hindu was told by is guru to have his dental work done without pain killer. The idea was for him to transcend dental medication. May is Best month to enjoy wildflowers by Maude Koevenig Fay is the Best month of the Carter giving up on Federal Agency cuts by Brooks Jackson associated press writer Washington a Jimmy Carter has All but Given up on fulfilling Bis Campaign Promise to drastically reduce the number of Federal agencies. During the 1976 Campaign he pledged a massive reorganization saying he would trim 1,900 Federal agencies to a More manageable 200 or fewer. No S.C. thing is going to happen. The government looks outwardly today about the same As it looked when Carter took office in january 1977. There is a new department of Energy which holds the distinction of becoming in its Brief life the most criticized single Cabinet department in government and the Creaky old civil service commission was split up a move almost universally applauded. But none of the la Cabinet departments has even had its name changed and other reorganizations have been minor the Basic Structure of government in t Likely to change very radically by the time Carters term is up the year after next. Carter is still pushing to carve a new department of education out of hew Secretary Joseph Califano a realm mainly because Carter thinks presidents should spend More of their time on education matters. And it is possible though far from certain that Carter will endorse a congressional move to create a new Cabinet level department of Trade to push for expanded . Exports and to police the new International Trade agreement. But even these initiatives would leave the Federal bureaucracy looking mighty familiar. Actually Carters Campaign Promise was pretty naive to Start. His aides in fact could never locate anywhere near the 1,900 a agencies Quot Carter had spoken of. They did count 469 departments agencies and and they found a grand total of 1,846 a organization units in the government. But this was done by counting 1,189 a advisory which of course Are not agencies because they done to administer anything along with a smattering of a quasi official organizations a government corporations and other outfits. That total is now Down a not to anywhere near 200 a but to 1,434 at last count. Even that reduction is somewhat illusory. The number of advisory committees did fall by 32 percent but this was accomplished largely through mergers rather than outright elimination. The number of people on the committees fell Only 19 per cent and their combined spending has actually increased 24 percent to$74 million this year. But however you Cut it Carter in t delivering on that pledge to squeeze the Federal government into 200 neat units. Whoever was on the ladder of Success ahead of us took some rungs with him on the Way up.

Many of our most Beautiful Birds have returned from far away places. Air in the Woods is Sweet wit fragrance of what we Call Sweet William Virginia bluebells and wild Plum blossoms. In Home gardens flowering currant and Lily of the Valley add their special spiciness to the wonderful scent of the Plum blossoms. Last monday morning a Ruby throated Hummingbird came to my bluebells Here at Home and fed from almost every Flower. Finally the tiny thing perched on a Twig of the fir tree and preened its shining Green feathers in the Sunshine. I added a mourning Warbler to my Spring list the same Day. He t0 nest a has been brightening the Yard May nest nearby if it finds enough shelter. On our Way Home from the Valley a week ago we noticed a pair of Eastern Kingbird perched on a Roadside Fence. They were Lucky to find a Fence to Perch on because so Many have been taken Down. Kingbird travel far during migration and these May have wintered in Costa Rica Brazil Bolivia or Peru. Years ago we used to see them in our Yard and along the Lakeshore. They subsist on insects caught on the Wing As do others of the Flycatcher family. Kingbird like to be near water and nest on Low shrubs stumps and Fence posts. Now for my Best news. Last october i wrote about finding an unusual Green Caterpillar on the yellow Leaf of an Ash tree. After several cold Days i took Leaf and Caterpillar indoors. Inside a Glass fish bowl it revived enough to crawl off the Twig and fasten itself onto the the Side of the bowl. There it spun a few fragile wite threads of silk and died or so i though because the Chrysalis looked so Small and dry. I moved the bowl to the basement and forgot about it until last monday morning when i happened to be doing a Little a straightening up Quot. There is the bowl unfolding Lovely yellow and Black wings was a newly emerged Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly at least i had identified the larva correctly what a miraculous transformation the Swallowtail had four stages of development egg larva Caterpillar pupa Chrysalis and adult. It was my Little Nephew Zachary who spotted the Caterpillar last fall. Now i must report the Good news to him. I took the bowl outdoors and a Short time later the Swallowtail sailed off in the Sunshine free to begin another Cycle of life
