Cuero Record (Newspaper) - October 22, 1972, Cuero, Texas Page 4 souvenir edition sir., oct. 22, 1972 4 to editorial by Ken Long our opinion to if it second Hundred years it is interesting to note the close parallel Between a Newborn infant and the life of a Community As a child conies into the world he is unable to fend for himself and rather pitiful in terms of function such is also the Case of a a new born town it is totally susceptible to its environment and can Only grow and become useful under the guidance of concerned citizens if the infant child is not carefully nurtured it will die. Again the same is True of a Young Community it can Only survive if its leaders work hard for the upbringing of the town in some instances the citizens tire of pushing or being pushed then the town begins to deteriorate the end result is death and very few citizens will be on hand for the burial sometimes even fewer than witnessed the birth it is a great tribute to the City of Cuero and her citizens that after too years we find our town in a great stage of vitality we owe much of this to the generations before us the Pioneer spirits who accepted the Burden of Community leadership for too years. Through those years Wise decisions were made great efforts were put Forth All in the interest of bettering our town now in 1972, we can Lex it a at Cuero and visualize her proud past we can enjoy her present and we can anticipate the great potential of her future.

Today a features Perot a payoffs Anderson Washington a h Ross Perot the likable loquacious Texas millionaire who has link rolled Many of president Nix ones favorite projects has been Given a Fortune in medicare contract payments Over the strenuous objections of social Security experts in one Case the Nixon administration overruled social Security which handles medicare at the very time in 1969 when Perot was cranking up to Back president Nixon s Vietnam policy with National newspaper ads Only a few months before Perot had agreed to serve with other Well known Moneybags As a trustee on the Richard Nixon foundation which will fund a ii Barry and museum for the Nixon papers earlier Perot had personally paid the salaries of six employees of his electronic data systems while they were on leave of absence to work on the 1968 Nixon presidential Campaign again in 1971, Perot a Good works for Nixon coincided with administration approval of Perot a medicare contracts this time contract approval in five states had been held up by social Security for More than a year some experts at social Security doubted they should be allowed to go through at All. But the log Jam broke within a week after Perot decided to pour $64 million into a failing Wall Street firm at the personal request of then attorney general John Mitchell White House aide Peter Flanigan and other High administration persuaders. The White House wanted to save investors from disaster but the failure of the Wall Street firm de Pont Glore Forgan also would have been personally embarrassing to president Nixon. One of the merged firms making up Depont Glore was formerly headed by Maurice stans Nixon a Commerce Secretary and now his chief Campaign fund Raiser. Perot s Progress hundreds of pages of Public records in the two cases while they do not show any direct tie with Perot a pro Nixon gestures do clearly establish that Perot got special treatment from the administration when Nixon came to office in january 1969, Perot was under fire for what one social Security expert estimated was More than too per cent profits on his Texas contracts. Perot says it was Only 14 per cent. After careful study social Security finally said in june that it Wasny to going to fully reimburse Texas Blue shield on the Perot contract demands. Blue shield took the Case directly to health education and welfare undersecretary John Venemann a office.

Although neither is sure exactly when it was Perot told us twice that there was no talk of contracts. Veneman recalls contracts were discussed during their private meeting. The undersecretary through a spokesman said these were not Texas contracts but a proposed California contract that was turned Down. Whatever the truth Venemann a office took Over leadership of the Texas Case from social Security. In october 1969, four months after social Security had turned Down Perot Veneman made the ultimate decision to give Perot the payments he wanted. This is the testimony of social Security health insurance chief Thomas Tierney. Tierney also told a top aide or. Thomas Bell that a the hew decision is to go with Ross Venemann a own hand picked aide on the Deal James Mclane now Deputy director of the Cost of living Council also affirms that he made the recommendation and Veneman approved it. Veneman disputes this. In any Case even As Perot was getting his Way on Texas he was looking to new contract payments in Indiana Iowa Massachusetts new York and Minnesota. Strange coincidences again there was Strong opposition within social Security. But a freeze of 15 months on the new York contract thawed suddenly on March 23, 1971 a six Days after Perot salvaged the Wall Street firm for the administration. The other four contracts also were quickly approved by social Security Perot in two Long impassioned talks with my associate Les Whitten insisted that the contracts had nothing to do with his bailout of Dupont Glore his Vietnam ads or other pro Nixon actions. On the contrary he said in Milwaukee California and Washington d c., he was treated unfairly on contracts. Where he succeeded he said earnestly it was because electronic data systems did a better Job at a cheaper rate. A i have done no favors for president Nixon a said Perot. A the things that i have done regarding the prisoners of War and regarding the investment in Wall Street were done without regard to who was president i would have done the same thing As a matter of conscience had senator Humphrey been president.

It is Cash a the a Sittin no rocking and its badge is the Good old fashioned rocking chair As a psychiatrist i am growing More convinced of the value of rocking chairs. For they let us relax in a comfortable manner without needing to smoke a cigarette or mix a cocktail. And they also permit Young mothers to Rock their babies women can to do that As Well in a straight backed chair. And they can to Rock a baby properly while seated on the Davenport or in a typical easy chair. So Lack of Early rocking chair experience while they were babies May technically have caused some of the present hostility of modern term agers to parents our hard working grandparents obtained peace of mind and wholesome rest just by dropping into their favorite rocking chair for a few minutes. In the 1971 summer Issue of the newsletter of this unique a a rocking club the editor also cites a Superb example of the psychological benefits on children of a rocking chair. Ruth Cordner is a re tired school teacher of Bismarck n. D. Slit describes the splendid therapy she used in her 5th Grade school a Ltd it a by Means of a Small rocking chair. It was a child a Rocker which she brought to add a Homey atmosphere to the Christmas tree. She says the kiddies loved it for few of their Homes had a rocking chair.
