This in a country which Only two years ago seemed to have one of the brightest futures in All latin America. To say that president Valencia a a presides Over a National calamity is putting it too strongly. Valencia is a courtly Man the son of one of colombians greatest poets. But he is a chief executive More interested in the Charm of his companions than in the rigorous duties of government. Unpleasantness is a thing to be avoided. When he took office in August 1962, he had the parliamentary Senate passes smoking Hazard Labelling Bill Washington up a the Senate has passed a Bill to require health Hazard warnings on cigarette packages. The House is expected to approve similar legislation next week. Senators voted 72 to 5 in favor of the measure wednesday after a three hour debate in which they turned Down several amendments aimed at giving the Bill More Teeth.

It also raises the penalty for disorderly or mob conduct from $25 to $500. Majority to pass any needed Reform. The budget worked out in cooperation with the International monetary fund was balanced. Within succeeding months funds allocated to Colombia by the Alliance for Progress came to More than $600 million. Wealthy reap benefits but tax loopholes continued to Benefit the wealthy. An inflationary spiral touched off by devaluation of the peso coupled with a general wage increase for City workers hit hardest the Man most in need of help the Small Coffee grower. Instead of a balance the budget showed a deficit of More than $100 million. Colombia drifted to its present state. This year Valencia agreed to economic reforms suggested by the International monetary fund and the United states. They included new taxes and better methods of collection and a further devaluation of the peso but with adequate safeguards against new inflation. A colombian delegation came to the United states seeking help. But then Valencia changed his mind about the reforms and the delegation went Home empty handed.

Hex air chief would w isl nuclear strike Washington up a for Mer air Force chief of staff Thomas d. White says that he would make the first attack if he was a reasonably sure an enemy was about to launch a nuclear attack on the United states.

These free Wheeling spending habits have been politically profitable to the spenders. Gets them re elected. Habits which return such Good dividends Are not Likely to be broken this raises a question which president Johnson or the Secretary of Treasury might be Able to answer. The question a if the United states cannot pay its Way during the greatest Boom time Ever when is it Likely to be Able to do so this question is accumulating muscle As the politicians spend and the Public debt increases. This accumulating muscle is expressed in terms of what it costs in interest charges to service the Public debt. In the current fiscal year the Cost will be Well above $11 billion. It will be greater the following year and still greater the year after that As the debt increases. Interest runs second this interest charge is the second largest item in the Treasury spending program. National defense is no., i at nearly $50 Bil a lion.
