Ironwood daily Globe Quot the doily Globe is on Independent newspaper supporting what it believes to be right and opposing what it believes to be wrong regardless of party politics and publishing the news fairly and a Linwood i. Noyes editor and publisher 1927-1964 Page 4 Ironwood daily Globe saturday mar. 8, 1980 mrs. Linwood i. Noyes president too much dawdling As much As any single event the open embargo of 1973 symbolized the decade of the 1970s. For that embargo the crude Oil Price hike that accompanied it set off a series of jolts that radically altered the politics the economies and the preoccupations of the civilized world and shattered any notion that America could somehow survive As an Island completely untouched by events far from its shores. Even More importantly however the open increases remind americans of just How weak our real Energy policy resolve has been. The Only reason the open Price increases have stuck is that we have appeared totally incapable of reducing our consumption. A it is True that total . Petroleum use propped last year when it had risen in precious years. During the last several months Petroleum use was seven to to percent below the expected level. But As encouraging As that statistic is it is hardly anything for use to Crow about. The potential for conservation is much greater. The nation has had much Tough talk on conservation from the White House and from Congress. The nation has seen Little action to make that Tough talk credible. There is no real National agreement on the Best method to use to increase conservation. The spectacle of a nation asserting its right to open Oil while dallying Over its Energy future strikes a great Many people As strange. The result is a lot of Tough talk about Energy policy while the hard decisions continue to be delayed. The inevitable consequence is that the . Continues to be precariously dependent on open Oil even As the stability of the persian Gulf Region becomes More Uncertain. It is time for president Carter to go beyond his Tough words on conservation and actually Tell us what he intends to do. The Issue is too important to be left hanging. Legislation would Benefit inmates by Nancy Dunn Lansing a Michigan inmates their families and state taxpayers stand to Benefit from proposed legislation permitting manufacture goods from prison industries to be aggressively marketed throughout the nation. The most Well known products of Michigan state industries Psia the prison factories Are called Are License plates. But in fact Many products including linens clothing file cabinets desks chairs and other furniture Are produced behind the Walls of state prisons in Jackson Marquette and Ionia. The products Are Well made and cheap by Market standards according to Frank w. Beetham Deputy director for the department of corrections in charge of the program. Consumers who would like to buy prison made goods Are out of Luck because state Law restricts the Sale of the products to governmental units a Concession to private Industry to avoid Competition. But a Bill recently approved by the House corrections committee would permit Psi products to be hawked throughout the state and nation to non profit organization As Well. Of the Bill is approved by the legislature Psi products could be marketed to hospitals institutions scouting organizations service clubs churches educational institutions and other tax exempt organizations. Booth news service the aim is to turn the prison industries into a close approximation of the a real things resulting in higher prices for the products but also in payoffs for taxpayers As Well As inmates. The Bill sponsored by rep. Joe Young jr., a Detroit is the product of five years of work by Young department of corrections officials and Youngs father Joe Young sr., a former legislator. The Bill would encourage expansion of the prison industries program which employs Only a Small percentage of inmates. Inmates with marketable work experience Are less Likely to return to prison Bill sponsor Young pointed out. A a my goal is to reach a Point where we can bring the inmate in line with what he is going to have to face when he gets out a Young said. Ultimately its backers Hope the Bill will Lead to higher wages for inmate factory workers. Currently inmate wages Range from a Low of $2.50 per Day to a High of $8 per Day Beetham said. A we would like to think we could increase the wages of the inmate to the Point that he could Send Money Home to support his family and possibly help get them off welfare a he added. The Bill requires the prison Industry program which now requires an annual $3.5 million subsidy from taxpayer funds to become self supporting within five years. Off Shore drilling by Nancy Dunn Lansing a geologists for the Federal government May try to explore the Bottom of Lake Michigan this summer to Lay the groundwork for possible off Shore Oil drilling. The study proposed by the . Geological Survey uses to map off Shore Rock formations that might hold Oil and Gas deposits is getting a Cool reception from Michigan officials. If this Summers study is conducted a follow up Survey would try to pinpoint the exact locations of the Oil and Gas deposits. Then the information would be supplied to Oil companies Federal geologists say to help the firms decide if the deposits Are Large enough to make off Shore drilling profitable. It word of the proposed study has angered state officials who swear they will refuse to give the uses permission to conduct the probe. A if they think they can come in Here unannounced and stir up a hornets nest they have another guess coming a said Art Slaughter chief of the geological Survey division in the department of natural resources. A a Michigan is not ready yet for off Shore drilling a Slaughter continued a a of they uses try to do this they will be running afoul of a lot of people and a lot of gov. William g. Milliken and the states natural resources commission arc have Long opposed exploration or drilling for Oil in the great lakes. The last time the Issue surfaced was in 1976 when an Oil company asked the Der for permission to explore the Lake Bottoms for Oil and Gas deposits. Der director Howard a. Tanner immediately denied the request and the arc went on record As opposed to drilling because it is a Likely to pollute or impair the largest fresh water bodies in the Western concern Over Oil drilling centers on the potential disastrous environmental effects of a spill or leak during Winter. Because of ice cover cleanup operations would be delayed until Spring. By then fish spawning grounds could be ruined and shorelines coated with Oil. The current proposal to Survey Lake Booth news service Michigan for Oil bearing rocks was hatched by Alfred Balch a geophysicist with the uses Branch of Oil and Gas resources in Denver Colo. Balch said he is trying to get permission from his uses superiors to bring a special 38-foot a seismic Survey boat to Lake Michigan this summer after he uses the vessel for a mapping project on a Lake in Illinois. A we Are going to be so close to Lake Michigan he said. A it Only makes economic sense to double up on a great lakes Balch said the boat is equipped with High powered air guns which Are used to Bounce Low frequency Shock Waves off underground Rock formations. Special a Hydro phones record the wave patterns which Are Analysed by geologists to pinpoint the location of potential Oil and Gas pools. Balch said if the project in Illinois Falls behind schedule the trip to Michigan probably will be scuttled perhaps forever. A we done to have a special appropriation to map Lake Michigan and its hard telling if any Money will be available in 1981,�?� he explained. Balch said if Michigan Der officials object to the project the uses will immediately drop the idea. A we done to want to go where we re not Welcome a he said. Slaughter of the Der said the uses proposal is a a attractive from a scientific Point of View. A it is always worthwhile to know what kind of resources we have out there a he said. But he doubted whether Oil companies would jump at the Chance to Drill in the great lakes. A off Shore drilling is exceedingly expensive. And no one knows if the lakes have the volume to make drilling profitable a he said. Canada has been tapping off Shore Gas reserves in Lake Erie since 1913, and has drilled More than 1,000 Wells without serious mishap. Three states bordering Lake Erie Ohio Pennsylvania and new York have expressed interest in joining the Gas search. Whether the states can Start drilling depends on a $1 Milton environmental study being conducted by the . Army corps of engineers. Gerald Ford is warming up Elmer c. Tryon editor and publisher by Walter r. Mears a special c correspondent Washington a Gerald r Ford Calls the Republican presidential Campaign a wide open Ball game and he swarming up to take the Field. They re playing hardball out there not Golf and it could be a Tough season for the former president. In the opening phase of the 1980 presidential Campaign. Ford was treated As an honoured elder statesman by the Republican presidential campaigners. In More than one Campaign debate he was extolled As an example of sound Republican management with a 4 8 percent inflation rate cited As a prime exhibit. Sen Howard h Baker jr., who folded his futile candidacy on wednesday used to Tell Campaign audiences that Ford had a a hassled inflation to the ground a a and said he wanted to do the same thing. Former u n. Ambassador George Bush would say that the Way to combat inflation was Fords Way with vetoes of excessive spending Bills even Ronald Reagan his old rival was relatively cordial a until Ford pronounced Reagan too conservative to win the White House Reagan then got off one of the better lines of the season by suggesting that perhaps Ford was coming out of political retirement because head developed a slice. But nothing enrages an Active campaigner More than the sideline jeers of a potential candidate who suggests he is going to Rescue the party from a Field of losers Ford Isnit putting it quite that bluntly but that s what it comes Down to. A the polls As i recall do not show that any of the Republican candidates thus far can defeat president Carter a a he said wednesday night. He said those soundings indicate that he would do better than any of them a emr. Ford does not need to disturb his candidacy and ride to the Rescue of the Republican party a retorted rep. John b Anderson campaigning to build on his Strong second place showings in the Massachusetts and Vermont primaries. Those Are two states Ford won easily Over Reagan in 1976, which Points to one of his problems this time. It s already too late for him to compete for nearly half the 1,994 nominating delegates at the Republican National convention filing deadlines Are pressing now for the late season primary elections and that set includes Southern and Western contests in which Reagan almost overtook him four years ago and to compete there. Ford will have to become an avowed candidate by tuesday. Stuart Spencer his 1976 Campaign manager said that a the deadline a from a technical standpoint of what a available in the primaries that would still be open to at the moment Ford is inviting republicans to invite him into the race he says if his supporters will come Forward and identify themselves publicly. Hell have a hard time saying no. That phase of the fledgling Campaign is going very nicely. A draft Ford committee opened shop in Washington others sprang up around the country and Fords friends and allies started talking up the Prospect of his candidacy. But the wave of sentiment for Ford has a familiar ring a it sounds a lot like the democratic talk that welcomed the Prospect of sen. Edward m. Kennedy a Challenge to president Carter. As soon As Kennedy became a candidate the mood seemed to change. Forgotten flaws became new problems and the senator from Massachusetts Hasni to been Able to win a state except his own. The Odds Are Good that Ford would face some of the same treatment once his candidacy became a fact instead of an alluring possibility. He did after All lose the 1976 election to Carter. Inflation was lower in his Day a but in a slumping Economy. For All those vetoes the budget deficit was far higher than Carters. Bush runs into Sharp Campaign questions about his role As Republican National chairman a and defender of Richard m. Nixon. As vice president Ford defended Nixon too. As president he pardoned him for watergate. Reagan Sage 69, has been raised As an Issue against him. Ford will be 67 on july 13, the Day before the convention begins in Detroit. Reagan people already Are saying that the Issue of Fords age would eliminate the age Factor As a problem for their Man. Ford is attempting what the late Hubert h Humphrey tried twice actively and unsuccessfully in 1972, and from the sidelines flirting with a democratic presidential bid in 1976. That does no to mean that the former Republican president can to come to the game late and overtake the candidates who were there before him. But the Competition will be rough and head do Well to bring his helmet.

I do not remember the gentleman rendering a report on notre Dames football Brademas sat Down. Reluctantly offered by John Cunniff a business analyst new York apr an amazing admission was made in the past week both Congress and the White House conceded that their big spending ways and budget deficits Are inflationary. They have in effect accepted blame although so far it in t Clear How much. All of a sudden appropriation Bills Are stalled in Congress and the White House is scurrying to pare its very own 1981 budget proposal just a few weeks after it was announced. The confession was Long delayed and reluctantly offered and it came Only after repeated annual budget deficits and simultaneous increases in the inflation rate from 4.8 percent in 1976 to 18-plus percent now. And Only after interest rates have become so High that Home buying is becoming a dream Small businesses Are near disaster local governments Are pinched and corporations Are forced into repeated Price increases. While the Concession of guilt was made not so much in Humble words and abject apologies As in a changed attitude toward spending and deficits it was More blame than any other group has accepted to Date business for example has generally declined to admit a role labor insists it has Only been reacting. Bankers maintain their High interest rates a big Factor in inflation merely reflect an economic condition. Whether or not they have a role and How much of one will be debated but almost nobody these Days is willing to exonerate the Federal government and elected officials finally have become aware of it. After five years of economic expansion during which repeated budget balancing promises were made and during which time it was assumed that revenues would catch up with expenditures the budget is still red. This week the congressional budget office estimated the deficit for fiscal 1980, which ends this fall will reach $46 billion. Another deficit of at least $16 billion is proposed for 1981. What bothers Many economists and apparently More and More members of Congress is that the deficits result not from a denial of Revenue to the Federal government but simply from increased spending. Taxes have risen and so has the Federal share of the Gross National product. Still nobody really knows what All the concern will amount to. Some people fear that spending is currently beyond anyone a control. Many worry that while voters demand spending cuts they Arentt willing to accept fewer services the icy realization now confronting Congress and the president is the same one that families and businesses have been facing for Many months the country cannot afford All that it wants to buy. Individuals and every group in society but government seems to have Learned the painful lesson months or years ago
