Arkansas City Traveler (Newspaper) - December 21, 1970, Arkansas City, Kansas Editorially speaking new shot in Arm for Economy the Arkansas City ran daily traveler monday december 21, 1970 among the casualties Page 4 one does not normally attempt to Stop a speeding car by shooting out the tires or pouring Sand in the crankcase not when the brakes Are still operative and the object is to slow the vehicle not wreck it. The analogy May be strained but it is not farfetched when applied to the government s economic policies of the past two years. Thanks to a deliberately imposed recession the tires Are ragged unemployment is up to 5.8 per cent of the labor Force compared to 3.5 per cent in 1969the engine is groaning there has been a severe business slump yet despite everything the momentum inflation of the economic vehicle continues apace. The word now is the aim using a combination of deficit Federal spending lowered interest rates and appeals for Price and wage restraints is to the Economy with High octane id and get it into High gear again. The Hope is for productivity to begin catching up with inflation and for business expansion to Start cutting away at unemployment. Of we Are Lucky by this time next year we will be on the Way Back to where we were in 1965, when business was healthy employment was full inflation was Only a Small dark Cloud on the horizon and when president Johnson thought he could impose a s30-billion-a-year War on the Economy without asking the taxpayers to pay for it. In other words without using the proper brakes to prevent an already hot Economy from becoming superheated. The Brake of taxation was finally applied but by then it was too Little and too late. Maybe this time we will have Learned something. Needless loss of life human mistakes combined with natures fury to make the Cyclone which roared out of the Bay of Bengal on Nev. 12-13 More disastrous than it need have been. Henrik Beer Secretary of the league of red Cross societies labels As a a a tragedy the fact that just 24 hours before the storm struck the coast of last Pakistan a change was made in broadcast storm warning procedures. Previous to the november catastrophe the intensity of impending storms was graded from a Low of one to a High of to. The system also called for interruption of radio broadcasts every Henry j. Taylor half hour with warnings. These were received on transistor radios by local leaders. However the Day before the disaster hit the grading system was dropped and storm warnings were included Only in regular news summaries. Even so. International red Cross officials estimate that 70 per cent of the 300,000 killed could have been saved had they heeded the warnings that were Given. The death toll in the big storm included 90 per cent of All red Cross trained disaster leaders who remained in their villages to warn residents and perished with them. Carroll Righter Jack Anderson merry go round South Africa melting Quot fugitive . Firebrand Eldridge Cleaver has announced from red Algeria that the Black panthers must step up their leadership of the american negro against the Republic of South Africa. Listening to Cleaver is like backing into a meat axe on the Fly. That the Standard of living for the average negro in South Africa is overwhelmingly the Best in All Africa he totally ignores. He likewise ignores As do South africans racial make up. Yet How can we Progress in world understanding it we totally ignore the Plain truth Africa is not simply a White Man painted Black. And studying South africans racial problem is like taking apart in a series of chinese boxes one inside the other. The population is 19.6 million. The native Black is the Bantu. There Are 12.7 million. But they split themselves into eight rival groups. Typical of Africa this split represents one of the nearly insurmountable problems about which we hear nothing. It is the problem of det Ribali ing the negro in order to nationalize him. For usually always suspicious and vengeful Mark them is such a Way As to make them despised feared and distrusted by the native african negro. This Indian influx has boiled into a negro Indian racial problem As explosive As any negro problem with the Whites. There has been an Arab influx. Look at the Black seizure of the offshore Island of Zanzibar and you will see How intensely most african Blacks hate the arabs. In this seizure a communist coup which included marching our expelled american Consul general Down to the Dock at the Point of a gun almost the entire Arab Community was massacred by the Blacks and the few survivors including the Arab Sultan of Zanzibar fled. There has been a jewish influx. The better economic situation has drawn tens of thousands. There Are now 110,000 jews in South Africa. The negroes Are caught in a bitter arabs jewish Cross fire and vice versa. Do we hear anything about that the White population lives in this boiling racial caldron but we re not even told clearly the tribal attachment is stronger about the Whites. Than even the family tie. Moreover there Are in South Africa an additional 1.8 million coloureds quite separate who have quarrelled among themselves for centuries. There Are 561,000 asians mostly indians. For India living room can be obtained Only in nearby Africa. Africa is the hinterland of India. The result in South Africa is agonizing and All but disastrous.
