High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - May 30, 1972, High Point, North Carolina The High Point Enterprise an Independent newspaper d. A. Rawley president mrs. C. H. Lockwood vice pres. Randall b. Terry treasurer David a. Rawley jr., vice pres. Joe Brown editor Joseph p. Rawley Gen. Mgr. Page 4-a tue Idoy May 30, 1972 the business of neighbors is is ssh Akee be be Quot Campaign tactics the Winston Salem morning newspaper has labelled a laudable and self effacing High Points decision to avoid making an Issue Over the zoning of the Southeast Corner of Forsyth county. It is no less laudable on their part that they recognize that Forsyth owes in return an obligation to devise adequate zoning regulations to protect High Points interests. As has been the Case on All sides High Point has not been totally Happy with uncontrolled development near its Borders. It has decided to proceed under a new Law and file its required intent to exercise zoning authority in Davidson and Randolph counties but will avoid a tug of War with Forsyth Over the Small area of that county within our one mile limit partially because Forsyth does have countywide zoning. In Large part the tip of Forsyth has guns again words come hard and thoughts harder still in the Wake of mondays shooting at the Jordan rally in the Raleigh shopping Center. Appeals to judgment Are going to be no More worthwhile than new pleas for gun control Laws. Attempted assassinations or berserk use of guns in crowds Are so totally pattern less and so untraceable to logic that a thousand editorials would have no More effect than this one on the future of political campaigning and Public service. We can Only offer sympathy to the families of those who died and to those who were Hurt too. We mourn for those whose inability to think clearly tears at the fabric of our National character and for a nation which in the eyes of much of the world must appear to have gone mad. Today is May 30th. Memorial Day observances were held on sunday. The Holiday was officially observed monday. But today is Mav 30th, and Long tradition says that this is memorial Day. To Mark the Observance we offer this Brief statement of a what the american Flag Means to me a a written by 13-Vear-Oid Sandy Daniels of fort Belvoir a. She is the Niece of or. And mrs. Robert j. Martin of 714 Woodrow ave. Here is her essay what is the flag0 a Well a you say. A a it a a pretty piece of cloth that a red White and think again. A i done to know a you say. To me the Flag symbolizes this country and its people with the three colors of red. White and Blue. To me the red stands for the blood we shed and the lives Laid Down for our country and Flag to me the White stands for the purity and unselfishness that we have in our hearts somewhere. To me the Blue stands for the loyalty Justice. And truth that the United states is supposed to be made of and which without we would t be the United states of America. London a depending on atmospheric conditions. France will resume its series of nuclear tests in the Pacific sometime after june i. The Low yield Hydrogen bomb explosions Are scheduled to take place at muru Roa atoll in the French polynesian islands the Cruiser de Grasse command vessel for the tests has been on station for seven weeks. Last summer the French exploded an a bomb with a Force equivalent to about one million tons of int. Then after reported threats of a break in diplomatic relations by Peru they cancelled the remaining two tests. This year new zealand already has protested the upcoming test series and Australia has delivered a note of disapproval to Paris. Nevertheless the French Are said to believe that perfection of their nuclear Arsenal comes ahead of the complaints of Small nations. France never accepted a seat at the 18-nation Geneva disarmament talks and was not a party to the partial test ban treaty signed in Moscow in 1963. The late president Charles de Gaulle resented the nuclear Hegemony of the United states and the soviet Union. Speaking at a news conference in Paris. Jar. 14. 1963. De Gaulle summed up what continues to be France s rationale for its Force de Frappe a it is quite True that the number of nuclear weapons with which we can equip ourselves will not equal far from it the mass of those of the two giants of Only want to say that the French atomic Force will have the somber and terrible capacity of destroying in a few seconds millions and millions of men. This fact cannot fail to have some bearing on the intents of any possible developed into a sort of trailer bedroom Community. Hundreds o f trailers in what appear to be Well managed trailer Parks provide a place for Many High Point workers to hang their hats. In addition some residential subdivisions have dotted the landscape in that Section. The Winston Salem writer sees some logic in Forsyth a maintaining the zoning authority pointing out that if the county were to give up control of the area future residents might be required to go to High Point for their building permits and to Winston Salem for such things As septic tank permits. He offers some thoughts As Well about the whole area of inter governmental relationships a so far there is no Clear indication How far the county Forsyth is willing to go in an Effort to prevent the development of a 21st Century slum on High Points North and Northwest boundaries. But the ability of the two jurisdictions to get together and solve the problem will Tell us a great Deal about their capacity for solving larger problems affecting the future growth of the residents of the area last Vear got their area legislator to try to sneak through the legislature a statewide Bill which really had Only local application and that was to assure that High Point could never Annex the Horne town Community and environs. We did no to believe then and still done to that High Point has any particular designs on Horne town or any other part of Forsyth county. Nevertheless. We agree with the twin City writer that High Point must be Able to count on that county to protect its Border from the creation of a Type of Urban sprawl that will one Day be slum like and terribly difficult to rehabilitate. During the revolution the fighting men showed us what those colors really meant simply by being Loyal to their country. Men gave their lives for our country and Flag. They were Loyal and unselfish even though they knew that Thev could have quite easily turned traitor. When the revolution came to an end we United and became a new Constellation. We voted for a president built new cities and explored new land but most important of All we got ourselves a Flag that stood for what we had experienced just through one War. We chose three colors that would show the world what Freedom Means. Those three colors Are red White and Blue. The american Flag is the foundation of our country. We try to be what the Flag stands for. It stands for loyalty Justice truth unselfishness love purity and Equality. Every time i see the Flag my heart swells with Pride. In a quite proud of my Flag. Are you a a it a the Flag of our yes but what does it mean it is sometimes forgotten that the formal French decision to construct nuclear weapons was taken by the government of Felix Galliard in april 1958�?the last month of the fourth Republic. The French had been piqued by amendments to the . Atomic Energy act of 1946 which while denying information to France made allowance for the Exchange of secrets with Britain. Frances first nuclear test occurred on feb. 13, 1960. At reggae in the Sahara desert. After algerian Independence the test site was shifted to polynesia. Today French intermediate Range ballistic missiles in hardened silos in haute Provence have a Range of about 1.800 Miles roughly the distance to Moscow. Frances first nuclear submarine was launched in 1967 and its 16 missiles Are reported to be operational. French politicians have turned a deaf ear to critics wha accuse France of polluting the atmosphere with its testing As far Back As 1958. A report of the United nations scientific committee on the effects of atomic radiation concluded that nuclear weapons tests constituted a Hazard to Mankind. However the great fallout scare of th9t me is now Well past. In the Early 1960s. People were worried that fallout would cause leukaemia contaminate milk and Lead to loss of hair. Radioactive isotopes such As iodine 131 were reported to collect in the thyroid gland strontium 89 and 90 in the Bones and cerium 137 in the Muscles and other soft body tissues now that Public concern is entered on Industrial pollution the French Hope that rahioacv0 poisoning will be regarded As a rather negligible aspect of a much wider problem. \ Washington two House investigators sought to eavesdrop electronically the other Day on a Radical youth groups convention in a Chicago hotel.

George Mcgovern May soon begin claiming instead a likeness to one of his party a deities Franklin Roosevelt. Mcgovern a sweeping Reform proposals have made party regulars nervous that his liberalism will alienate All but the most leftist democrats and thus re elect president Nixon. Merry go round by Jack Anderson but Mcgovern has been receiving different counsel from such advisers As Arthur Schlesinger jr., the prolific historian Best known As a biographer of Franklin Roosevelt.

A in 1972, As in 1932, the nation is in a condition of political and economic deadlock. A Republican president has shown himself vacillating and callous in his attitude toward Domestic social problems. Administrations Pride a now.

A above All he put together a new coalition a coalition that revitalized the democratic party and ushered in a new epoch in american politics. That is what you have the Opportunity to do now. A you have already begun to bring together the Kennedy and Mccarthy forces of 1968�?the Blacks Browns and Low income White who followed mfr the suburbanites and republicans who followed Mccarthy and the students and intellectuals who followed them both. In Wisconsin you showed that you could add the Farmers. A the important thing As you have so often said yourself is to make our base As Broad As possible. A the nation cannot be United by rhetoric. It can Only be United by programs and can do this and As you argue the Case for new directions you will be perceived As for eventually was As the one truly unifying and reconciling Panda postscript those lovable pandas from red China Cost the american taxpayer some $600,000.
