Fayetteville Northwest Arkansas Times (Newspaper) - February 9, 1983, Fayetteville, Arkansas Editorial opinion the Public interest is the first concern of this newspaper Alden h. Spencer publisher and general manager David Speer managing editor 6 a wednesday february 9,1983 dare to be great go ahead Dale do it. Run for the state a no mean teat Coli sideling president. Some of your stands in the past. He who cares that you re in the group even goes As far As calling you a that the Harris poll lumps in As a a a a Washington merry go round government report indicts slave labor a other possible the 4 or 5 percent level a no cares that you would have to set in line with Walter Mondale Ohn Glenn Gary Hart and Rubin Askew to try and find an open Date to announce who cares that you weren to even one of the candidates tested by the Harris Survey for name recognition when folks like sen. Robert Byrd of Virginia sen. Hart of Colorado and sen. Ernest Hollings of South Carolina made it your candidacy would focus attention on Arkansas at least for a Little while and maybe give a Little More clout to the state delegation to the National convention. But the announcement is not All. These Days the announcement is just a part of the presidential election process. Such a run would take Money and lots of it. Not to worry. William h. Bowen president of commercial National Bank in Pine Bluff says the Money is there. He also says you could get the support of Many prominent conservatives in once in a Century candidate. You might even pull off the impossible As you seem to have done in your races for governor and senator knocking off Faubus Rockefeller and Fulbright. This is to urge you to officially get into the race and soon. Sen. Cranston has beaten you to the punch by being first in. And other official announcing dates have been set and Are coming up fast. You done to want to get lost in the shuffle. If you done to hurry you might wind up not being the first arkansans in the race. You could follow in the footsteps of the late sen. Joe t. Robinson who went from being governor to senator to running for vice president on the 1928 ticket with then gov. Alfred e. Smith of new York. You might even take the John Anderson route and follow arkansans Coin Harvey in forming your own party. He even held his progressive party nominating convention right Here in Northwest Arkansas. Dare to be great sen. Bumpers. You might even make the next Harris poll. Washington the Reagan administration is about to release an official report which will indict the soviet Union for widespread use of slave labor. The report is the. Result of months of study by experts from the White House the Cia. The Pentagon and the state and labor departments. Their findings will come As no Surprise to anyone who has slowed through Alexander Solzhenitsyn s a gulag archipelago a but their report will give the . Governments imprimatur to disclosures of political and religious persecution throughout soviet society. The study was made in response to an inquiry by sen. William Armstrong a Colo. He wanted to know if forced labor was being used to build the natural Gas pipeline from Siberia to Western Europe. As it happened the intelligence on mat specific project was scant and the experts disagreed Over exactly what constituted work on the pipeline sources told my associate Lucette Lagnado. So the inter Agency group decided to expand its study to include All soviet slave labor and put the whole Issue on the record. The experts estimate that there Are about four million Mary Mcgrory my plans swirling still no end in sight Washington the presi Dent would do almost anything for my. The huge and homeless nuclear Quot peacekeeper a when the House refused to produce it be accused the members of sleepwalking he wrote a letter to rep Jack Kemp r n y., in which he strongly suggested that ii he did no to get his missile he would cancel the disarm men talks in Geneva All of which makes it All the More mysterious As to Why he was not willing to sign his name on a waiver to keep Harold Brown on the special my commission Reagan Impan eled to Rescue it. Some nameless lawyers deep in the department of defense invoked the charge of a conflict of interest a against Brown Brown was called on to give the group a Little bipartisan gloss it he was Carter s defense Secretary and i Toch Luster he has a pm d.

Although superficial changes have been made in the past 30 years forced labor is still an important Factor in the soviet Economy and it is still used As a weapon against political and religious dissidents. The report illustrates the lawyerly techniques used by the authorities to deny civil rights supposedly guaranteed to All soviet citizens. Free speech for example is obliterated by a Law making it a crime to a a libel the soviet system a a Blanket term that includes any form of outspoken dissent. A particularly useful catch-22 is the charge of a parasitism a which is used when a dissident is prevented by the authorities from holding a Job and then arrested for not working. Viet dissenters railroaded into the labor Camps on questionable grounds. Here Are a few cited in the report accused of Selling Art slides to friends but his real a a crime was patronizing artists the authorities disapproved of. He was convicted even though the prosecutions expert witness refused to testify that Mikhailov had engaged in prohibited activity a Ida Nudel who was both vociferous and persistent in her criticism of the authorities re a How to get the most out of Washington a draws on the experience of nine other senators As Well As his own.

He was convicted and sentenced to two years forced labor a even though the documents in question weren to presented As evidence in court. A Herbert Murd an estonian methodist was convicted for doing Church work among Young people. He was released after a year at forced labor but was soon rearrested for failure to pay Alimony a a failure that was due directly to his inability to hold a Job because the authorities repeatedly had him fired. He was eventually convicted of a a parasitism. A a Georgiy Mikhailov was an Amateur Art collector sentenced report Doc to four years for engaging in a cases of so prohibited occupation. He was gently completed a four year government must take the Lead sentence in Siberia. But she is in restoring the Economy was far from spontaneous.

A Alexander Paritskiy was an Ocean Logist sentenced to three years forced labor on charges of a slanderous his real offence was trying to emigrate to Israel. Under the dome its not unheard of for members of Congress to author a Book with or without professional help. But few lawmakers have the virtuosity of sen. William Cohen. A Maine. In 1978 he dished a Book of poetry a of ins and seasons a which sold 10,000 copies and went into a second printing. His 1981 Book.

Abc set a new worlds record by Selling 48 of those half minute commercials for a total of $19 million during the actual game now of course someone has to come up with the Money companies done to sponsor Ball games out of the goodness of their hearts. They expect us to buy their product. F want to do my part because commercials make the television broadcast of the game possible i loved watching the game and i did t even mind the commercials As a matter of fact i was impressed by them. In be never seen so Many commercials done with so much imagination and technical expertise. In the second half the commercials were better than the dolphins. It was a kaleidoscopic phantasmagoria of salesmanship there were commercials for Chrysler Mazda Fords Dodges Samaros Chevy trucks and Volkswagen Luiere were at least three different Beer commercials and three for airlines Newsweek Magazine had a Good one As did master lock Merrill Lynch the investment com Pany Canon Honda motorcycle and Exxon there was even a plug for capt. Joel Chamberlain the Pilot of the Goodyear i or Rich Blimp now it s up to each and every one of us to buy enough of these deducts to make it worthwhile r their makers to have brought the super bowl game to us we want to encourage them to do it again next year.

I done to need a new master lock i get Newsweek free and my wife let me ride a motorcycle if i bought one obviously i be got a heavy Load to carry and Don t even know where to lift. George Plimpton did a commercial for a video game but i be forgotten the name of it. I think i be forgotten because it was one of the few commercials that irritated me. Plimpton is a Good example of someone who was asked to do a commercial because he was a famous son and has continued to do hem Long after anyone can remember what he was famous for. By now he s mostly famous for doing the commercials and that Isnit enough the Cummer rial emphasizes him More than the product pern there were two 30-second commercials for something called �?�stresstah6 600 a the Price of a bottle of stress tabs 600 is More in line with what in a willing to put out but i be never taken a Vitamin in my life. I associate vitamins with the peace movement.

At the same time physician resistance to midwifery has increased according to Sally Tom a midwife who is acne s Liaison with the government.
