Cullman Times Democrat (Newspaper) - May 7, 1972, Cullman, Alabama Page 2-a sunday May 7,1972 the Cullman times calf love in recent years a trend in the United states has been marrying Young. The a a things today is for teen agers to marry often still in College or High school. In much of Europe where traditional customs Are More respected and where everything new is not necessarily considered better marrying is approached More seriously girls Nineteen or Twenty or older Are less Likely to panic or feel insecure because not yet married. Even More important perhaps their mamas generally speaking done to push them into marriage at a Young age. A British writer analysing the american trend recently was critical on several grounds. He says teenagers Seldom know what they want or what each other will be like a few years later. He says few teen girls can Tell whether their teen husbands will be successful business men or flops. He believes it Wiser that girls and boys wait until they Are More mature and have a More thorough knowledge and understanding of the person they propose to share the rest of their lives with. Further he believes there a a correlation Between marriage and increasing marriage failures. One reason for the High rate of broken marriages and annulments one must agree is that so Many Young idealistic americans get married on daddy a or mamas Money still in school and still in dreamland a love affair which our English critic describes As a calf truth on France Europe and the world is currently buzzing Over a four hour documentary film Baring the truth about France in world War ii. During the late Charles Degaulle a reign the French made film was banned. His death made its showing possible. The Gist of the revelation is that frenchmen contrary to the popular legend and so much hokum written and filmed about France and frenchmen in world War in collaborated with the nazis better than almost any other european people. Most were pro nazi and anti English and Many helped the germans persecute the jews. Thiis knowing souls and germans who were in France during the occupation have Long known. Not Only did the French not fight with any heart when Hitler attacked May 10, 1940 some air squadrons refused to Takeoff in the toughest Day but most were Friendly to the occupiers and openly pro German. The reasons for this Are Many. For one thing Hitler gave the Vichy regime a relatively free hand in Domestic affairs. The British also antagonized frenchmen by attacking the French Fleet in North Africa and by other warlike acts against their former ally. A striking conclusion fairly Well proven in the documentary is that the same people who supported marshal Petain Vichy collaborationist France supported Charles Degaulle after the War. On time Ralph Nader a aviation consumer project recently reported that the nations make airlines often fail to Fly on time without reason or Jib fiction and proposed airlines which pay Little attention to time schedules be penalized by the civil aeronautics Board. Anyone who has sat impatiently on . Passenger aircraft depending on the time schedule advertised and witnessed the casual slow care less attitude of crewmen stewardesses and even pilots thus missing his future connection knows the Nader report is True. Those who ride trains in Germany or England know passenger facilities can run on time. For some reason Little Pride or emphasis concerning on time departures has been exhibited by american trains buses and planes in recent years. Bus Drivers sit drinking Coffee and talking at departure time our trains were notoriously habitually late and now our airline schedules Are utterly undependable. Corrective cab action is More than justified. A a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a the Cullman times 300-4th ave.

A the a a nobility of the act is not at Issue on account of Whalene a close association with candidate Nixon As idea Man and script writer. At no time does Whalen profess to have been the intimate Friend. He telephoned me one night in the autumn of 1967 saying head been invited to join the Nixon Campaign staff and asking my reaction. He told me and tells in this Book that he believed a a Nixon a the one to cure and strengthen what was even then a a helpless pitiful giant called America. As a Brilliant and Independent Young writer then and now Whalen can say whatever he chooses about politicians a head be delinquent to do otherwise. But the Reader borne along by the compelling narrative of inside events will wonder which of two reasons really caused this slashing blow to be struck. Was disillusionment with Richard Nixon a crepe sole Campaign of �?~68 the reason or was it the authors jealous resentment toward those who became More inside than himself it wont be difficult for the Reader to find both these motivations separately and in combination for they Are Flung in his face from Page after Page. Whalen quit the entourage Between the Republican and democratic conventions. He believed by then that or. Nixon had a consuming ambition to be president but not the foggiest notion of How to use the office for the country a salvation. The gop candidate went about rapidly promising an open society Black capitalism a the lift of a driving dream and a secret plan to halt the War and win the peace. This Moonshine sedative was enough to earn him a first ballot nomination and to stake him to a 15 Point Lead Over Hubert Humphrey which had almost disappeared at the end. There stood the Man Whalen writes a who remembered listening As a boy to the train whistle blowing in the California night. On election Day Nixon had reached his destination but there the tracks had stopped. Now he began his improvised Dick Whalen Wasny to there to help him and the Middle chapters recount the break. It began one Day when Whalen was told his badge did no to entitle him to see the Boss. He was sent to John Ehrlichman a late recruit who made disparaging remarks a writer and research types a and Whalen told him obscenely what he could do to himself. Next there was another Nouveau . Haldeman who replied a put the request in writing a when Whalen again desired to see the candidate. Finally there was John Mitchell a this voice a bit thick after dining Well who chewed Whalen out for offering advice. That did it. Whalen wrote or.
