Gross a Iowa Washington All the trap pings of a professional television production including Pancake makeup and a new hair do Loo president before _ con Gress the evening of Jan. 17 to present what some were. Pleased to Call a message on the state of the As a report to Congress on All matters of Paramount importance As a report from the chief executive establishing a condition precedent to congressional conduct of thu people s business1, it was a political drab uninspired presentation that featured demands for More Uhvin the sky. The Only real spontaneous applause greeted the president s statement hat the american people have had enough of rising crime Anc yet the main thrust of his Solu lion to this Issue was his demand for the hiring of another 100 Federal District attorneys Anc 100 More Jbf agents. While perhaps of som help the employment of 200 additional attorney and agents would have about As much effect ii halting the Waves of crime in the streets across the nation As pouring a quart of Oil on a Sto tossed wave in the Atlantic. Washington d. C., one of the worst crime Ridden has some 350 vacancies in its police department. It can t recruit competent policemen and we know of no one who con tends even if it could that 550 More police would halt the rapes murders holdups and Kious muggings that Are common occur ran Ces. Not Ono word did the president utter in behalf of uns Hackling the police and lower courts in the handling of criminals. As a mat Ter of fact the president vetoed a crime btll11 in the last Congress thai sought to protect decent citizens from the criminal element on the War in Viet Nam the president be Kratly stood his ground insisting on what j now Calls the san Antonio it or Vides i that if there is a bombing halt pea talks must Start promptly and with the resonable expectation that they will be productive and 2 that the North. Vietnamese must take advantage of the bombing halt to build and deploy their forces As they have in t past. Not the slightest Ray of Hope was offer that the War is near an end or Hal any of o so called free world friends upon whom lavished so Many billions Are prepared1 to help us with the blood Lei Ling. The president says that Wilhm a few Days he will submit to Congress a tight bucket of billion. That is billion above estimated spending in the current fiscal year. If a 10 per cent increase in Federal taxes is enacted that would leave a deficit of some billion.1 with out a lax increase the deficit would about billion. The president said that the in creased spending under his tight budget of j186 billion is to is mandatory Only because an administration and its con trolled Congress Are utterly reckless in shovel ing out the people s Money. Along this same line and in connection with inflation and his demand for a tax increase the president said Congress can repeal it the tax boost if the need has passed but Congress can never repeal inflation. This would be almost laughable if the sitar Tion were not so serious. Congress can repeat inflation just As it can repeal a Revenue Mea sure by the act of stopping profligate spending Tong ago of inc administration and Congress and sought to act responsibly there would have Een a Choice Between guns and butter be s late As 1968 Lyndon Johnson still refuses to ill on the nation to face up to the Han its of life and financial crisis Hal faces it is still guns and butter with a Large lading i molasses mixed with the butter in Thi Section year. As usual agriculture the nation s Basic in us try was barely mentioned. Parity for of armers who produce our food is still just an said the presic Leni to has had four years o change Hope t he added that he would Rucoi need raising Farmers income by establish in Security commodity Reserve that will protein her Market from Price depressing stocks an protect the consumer from food and programs to help Farmers bargain More effect vely for fair there were absolutely n details and aside from the forgoing no recon Ion of. The terrific economic beating farm Are Laking in making possible the cheap Fow policy that is in effect. Further to the Surprise of no one the presi Dent called for repeal of the requirement tha joj4 billion in Gold be held o Back our cur Rency. With our total Supply of Gold havin dwindled to some billion and with foreigners holding More than billion in Dollar claims which 1 hey can Exchange for Gold whal Lyndon Johnson and his financial wizards Are trying to prove Only to themselves. It May be something of an Over simplification but having debauched our Silver currency by replacing it with scrap Metal it is now found expedient to further erode the integrity of the Dollar by removing the last vestige of precious Metal a Metal that is in demand in every Corner of he world. From a Gold Hoard of nearly billion a few years ago to 12.5 billion Silver coins with an intrinsic value of several billion dollars to scrap is the Johnso record. Thus Are our resources being insidiously dissipated to meet one financial crisis after another yet the profligate spending continues and the National debt rockets upward the president rated about the 83 month of consecutive Prosperity but he said nothing of the huge increases in the debt that hav four disaster octian teams Eire to established Here to within Cedar Kapi Msj be in Marlon and one Cam in Rural Linn county.
