Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - January 17, 1966, Burlington, Iowa The u in 1\ 11. Burlington Iona. Monday. January it 1966 editorial Oue lion to \ allies die increasing Cost of the War in a Boon to Din son s in Vici Nan president Grams. The cry 01 guns provides a ready made ext use for cancelling or curtailing internal projects and using the Money instead for fighting tile communists. But the president has stronger arguments than tile obvious political ones for insisting that the welfare of americans at Homo not be sacrificed lust in Oiler to make tile Wai less painful to taxpayers. For one thing the present popularity of the War results partly from the fact that few of us have Felt its costs directly. We will lie More Apt to face up to the hard choices about ending ii if we become fully conscious of what it is costing to continue it. But the Way to do that is not to abandon programs assisting the needy among us but rather by paying tile Cost of the War in addition to our obligation to our own society. Our Hope is to live in a letter world. Hut it xxx ill not be lie nor if in seeking to secure a Corner of Asia we neglect our National or is. We consider the communist takeover of Viet Nam a threat to our Well being but we have internal problems which pose As serious a threat to our peace and happiness. What will it profit us to come borne some years hence from Viet Nam with Victory if we come Home to a nation torn by racial dissent ensnared in traffic jams. Trapped in ugly slums gagged on polluted water and air burdened by millions ill equipped to be productive in a modern Economy most of the new programs for educational improvement slum clearance. Racial Justice for saving Tho cities were already Long overdue. These Are problems which will not wait patiently for solution until we Are done with foreign ventures. They threaten ugliness and unhappiness As surely As do Viet Cong marauders. Oue lion of motives Republican leaders Are in full cry against the War on poverty program determined to expose examples of mismanagement of funds political shenanigans particularly by demo cratic mayors in Large cities and human failures in the toleration of such functions As Job corps centers. Such scrutiny is an essential ingredient of Good government and a proper function of the Loyal opposition. Waste in government in any of its functions should lie intolerable and its elimination should he of More Public concern than it is All the same there is a certain irony in the attacks on the poverty program. For the most part those most shocked and angry at the waste apparent in this Effort to alleviate poverty never managed quite As much Shock and anger at the Iii Dible waste of poverty itself no matter How badly the office of economic Opportunity is administer. This amp that. By mph cd Ami the results of the past year have certainly not been All bad it can never be blamed for a fraction of the waste of material and human resources produced by the slum housing the ignorance tile poor health tile crime and the hopelessness of the Jihor. Tile program is vulnerable because it is breaking new ground and has to learn by trial and error because it is committed to working through the political structures which exist in the cities and because by definition its problems Are extremely difficult and not always capable of solution. The Validity of the attacks on the program depends on whether it is being criticized to make it Trotter or to kill it. Tile tone of much of the present criticisms suggests that the critics Are seeking an excuse to say a see we told you you do anything to improve the lot of the poor.
