Burlington Herald (Newspaper) - November 6, 1969, Burlington, Iowa Tongue in Cheek. It looks to us from whet we be heard and seen that most people would like to have the thing settled finally and Stop this Racket Over housecleaning that comes up so regularly. In or out that is.

Aria on burglary charge involving tiie gun International speaking of Ching whereas Chiang a the race Between sex governor Lehmann and John Foster Dulles for the senatorial seat Dulles now holds is waxing hotter. Idle question How does anything a Wax hot. The race seems to have turned into a real free for All with accusations denials overstatement and wild predictions being made Ion All sides. Dewey is campaigning for Dulles and for jr., is campaigning for Lehmann. Dewey versus i Roosevelt again Tom most feel a bit Peculiar at times. Is apr Winchell is sweating out another War we hear. It looks a though Walter gets a real Bank out of making predictions and then watching them go sour. We will make a prediction ourselves Here will be no War with the Masai so or anybody else in the next two weeks. We intended to say two Yesis but two weeks makes it seem like something is going to happen soon. Reata Esfi out of Ord mry circulation campaigns Quot a sniffles Are frequently nowadays wherever Navy gather. They be had to watch Ordinary civilians Lay Down Law and they think the Law is pro army. Far be it from us to take sides with Navy brass but we think the army could be improved upon too. Might even be discarded altogether without hurting our feelings. That s the trouble with modern youth no sentiment Westbrook Pegler Bas taken to reminiscing. A Good sign. As Long As he wastes Ink on what journal ism was a really like bade in Chicago when cml Gol was really a a town he wont be wasting it elsewhere. I p Idle question Posa a read us a a stuff ? a a a a Fife cents per copy and Urbana a Una wet Timi by Umby a Champaign and Urbana Illinois have a combined population of around fifty thousand people. Added to that nine months of the year they have a transient population of move than Twenty thousands the student body of the buyers it m in Jois. I the pest ten years have been big years for Champaign Urbana. They have watched Industry come Lin until now the two cities Are not entirely dependent on t h e University. Their population has increased a third. They have experienced no extended period of deflation since the wars end. Their future is extremely promising. Burlington Iowa has go through a period of expansion similar if on a smaller seals to that of Champaign Urbana. Our population has increased a fourth or mom a a industries Imp found it egret us to locate Here and we Haven to lest what we have Gale a. But our future is not a promising As Champaign Urbana s. The essential re on that Burlington if it continues a at present will not continue to grow and expand is simple. P we Havu Mads a arrangements for expansion. We have no Dia fit m mind no plan to use no Long Range program to follow we had the beginning of one of cd to hid the planning com Wale in hut we be thrown that nut sad have return nth to ear a a Paley of accidental chasm Petign and Urbana have taken a different Point of View. They hired Swanson associates a company that specialises in City planning and have accepted their recommendations insofar As the citizens and elected representatives of the two cities have found the recommendations to be feasible and desirable. The Dios have re nested that the pub he at la age contribute its a Greet Ion to the planning commission. They have asked the the Phuoi be a Community plan Anil net the brain child of a handful of seals citizens. They Realise that without the cooperation and approval of Tho Community a a whole their efforts May be for nothing and May he discarded without warning by the voters. They be publicised their plan. The Champaign Urbana courier a newspaper there devoted an entire Section to on explanation of the proposals that had been made and urged that the proposals be argued and discussed by every will it stay on lets take a vote and see this is not to be construed a a straight opinion less factual article. It a not intended to to a statement of policy either. It just seems to us that there Are a great Many opinions on the subject of gambling and on the matter of Selling hard liquor Over the bar that should be aired because they represent the thinking of quite a number of Ordinary citizens. The recent Clamp Down on illegal activities in Burlington aroused much talk. The Clamp Down that has existed at Variot degrees of effectiveness Over a period of More than two years has always been Worth a word or two from almost everyone. How the City feels about Tho matter officially we cant say nor do we feel anyone else can say. There Are Laws concerning it but Are they popular the Community has a policy but is it really the policy the people favor we can say from what we be heard that Many people think the liquor control Laws in the state of Iowa Are Little abort of ridiculous. Both militant boozers and equally militant anti boozers Are dissatisfied. The boozers believe it is silly to restrict half Way and invite graft and pay offs. The non boozers believe it is silly to restrict Halfway and not effectively dry up anything. The gambling site Tion is different in some ways but the essential problem is the same. Laws that Are Only applied when the ministerial associations Are watching Are hardly Worth having on. The books. Laws that fail to say enough and that cannot be i effectively enforced Are not Worth having on the books. It also looks 9 though there is More than one hypocrite at Large. On Day we hear violent de-�?68fitljw�? of gambling and by beit Toper Selling and the a it Day or week dec Meeth a the i Fame individual who a a or denounced the things is having a rare time taking advantage of their Prev Nee. If the slots Are to be thrown out most people seem to fee1, then they should be thrown out permanently everywhere. If the slots go the punch boards and the barrels should go too. If one tavern is to be barred from using liquor at its bar then every tavern should be regulated the same Way. The most disgusting aspect of the entire affair we have been told is when favouritism goes with it. I the Drys in Oklahoma will doubtless ref a to admit it but a when they recently voted liquor out again they voted the bootleggers into Power for another term. We should realize the same situation is applicable Here. By outlawing slots and hard liquor for a Short time election Tun a in Oklahoma we make their recovery Only More profitable. It might be considered while we re at it that this half and half period we re passing through for the umpteenth time makes both hard liquor and Slot machines More attractive to the ones who Are inclined to slip toward them. It must be admitted that the worst Evi existent i this town As far As taverns Are concerned is the one that allows tavern keepers to sell liquor to minors. Slip shod legislation and enforcement allow the evil to exist. It May Well be that the heat will remain on for quite a while. It May also be that the heat will go off before another six months Are out. One Way or the other periodically applying pro Uro will never solve anything particulars if the pressure is applied would tied ova re so m Lone on the Assumption that Community Progress affects everyone m the Community. I Champaign and Urbana have an a advantage. They have one of the nations largest universities there to help them and they evidently have requested and received the encouragement of the state administration. I they have recognized in the Muter flan by which they Hope to guide their development the need for an Aeq a to transit system and an effective routing of major highways. They have considered the need for adequate recreational facilities and have designated certain Are which could profitably be made into Public Parks playgrounds and Golf courses. I they have inspected All their i schools decided which met be abandoned a unusable and which May be improved. They have attempted to gain some glimpse of future housing Are so a to be Able to expand school facilities with an Eye to the probable demands. I ther have Laid out plans for a improving their Psi mag site i a Tion and have designated Cut-1 offs and new rent that might a a if traffic Seq a ii the Burd Dahav on certain thoroughfares. A they have the pos is Biliti for the development of and heavy Industry districts and a straight residential districts. They have j a let ranges for further expansion by the University a and have consulted the University a to its probable needs for the future. A they have me ured and plotted and mid out and schemed and planned to Tho Point where after a year of study they have what i appears to be a workable plan for. Community improvement a no one knows of course Wyeth Ler or not need will arise for Many i of the proposed changes and expansions a the planning commie Ision May have done its work for nothing Tho town might find itself sliding backward perhaps Back further than they were ton years ago. If that happens All their careful planning will look ridiculous and unnecessary and their children will laugh to the idealists and dreamers who thought such a thing could Hap pen. A but and there is the big word in the planners May a right by All appearances they Are right land they can Only follow Prev it indications and judge by past history. V. F i no one that we know of in a Burlington is doing either. No Gene in Burlington is laying out a plans fur new highways sad Dover Leaf intersections and. I new schools and playgrounds land Parks. No More than the i slight to Effort is bring made to solve our parking problem land the problem of our River i front has been wearily discussed Iby us and by others for rite in me time. I you might ask a you probably will who car about Champaign Urbana we fright ask in return who care about Burlington ? the people in Champaign and Urbana Are / the on concerned about those cities and the people in Burlington should to the ones to worry mid fret about Thio City. We can take a hint from the title ii Illinois however and might actually learn some Ming from what they be tried to accomplish. We wont guarantee that Well learn Ait ting but a might. As things stand new future Mil
