Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Svptombar LETHBRIDGE HERALD-35 Grey-haired women print old time weekly paper MARLINTON, W. Va (AP) The old wooden building shakes a little on Wednesdays when Editor Jane Price Sharp and her four grey-haired women helpers put out the Pocahontas Times. But the quiver is barely noticeable above the rumble of overhead belts and the lurching gasps of the 62-year- old flat-bed press that prints the paper a page at a time. The Times is one of the last papers in the United States to be set by hand and run off on a flat-bed press. There isn't much competi- tion here in the broad Allegheny Mountain valleys of Pocahontas County. Mrs. Sharp runs off copies of The Times every week. A few are sold around town and some delivered to homes, but most are mailed to local sub- scribers and to former county residents who want to keep up with hometown gossip. The Times is crammed with little tidbits of local infor- mation, wirtten in a style uni- que to small papers.

TONY PERLICH Lie. 010292 Phone 328-9872 By RICHARD CRITCHFIELD Christian Science Monitor JAKARTA, Indonesia The greatest risk of deepening planetary disorder today lies in the vast migration of peasants into the cities. Throughout much of the "third impoverishing conditions in the countryside are driving great numbers of "surplus" people off the land and into large cities where overcrowding and lack of in- dustrial employment further frustrate their hopes of a de- cent life. Populations of some cities have swollen four, five, and six times what they were in 1950. Cities with only a few hundred thousand people then, had by 1970 shot up into the millions. Among the fastest growing, Lagos, Nigeria, went from to 1.5 million; Bogota, Colombia, grew similarly to 2.5 million; Bangkok, Thailand, to 3.5 million; Jakarta, Indonesia, to 5 million. Population projections for many cities are continually revised upward. During the 1970's, Calcutta may reach 15 million people, Cairo 6 million, Buenos Aires 10 million. In Latin America 17 more cities will pass the 1 million mark, as will a dozen more in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. African cities like Accra, Ghana, and Dakar, Senegal, will swell even faster. HALT The situation has already led to severe measures to halt the influx in at least one city Jakarta. Three years ago, Jakarta's military governor, Lt. Gen. Ali Sadikin, declared the In- donesian capital a "closed the first such in Asia, claiming that a flood of more than peasants into the city each year had endangered Jakarta's safety. Since then he has enforced this ban by issuing identity cards and work permits, out- lawing such common peasant immigrant occupations as pedicab driving and street vending, carrying out periodic police sweeps, and burning and razing squatters' settlements. In an interview, General Sadikin said he has reduced migration from a month to a year by these measures. TRANSFORMED Today the centre of Jakarta has been remarkably tran- sformed. New 10-storey to 30-storey concrete-and-glass office buildings jostle for space, the streets are jammed with Mercedes, Fiats, and Dat- suns, and the stores are flood- ed with television sets, air conditioners, and all the other amenities of the consumer society. A small, modernizing elite who compose seven per cent of the city's population are determined to achieve North American life-styles. This minority has ridden the crest of a rapid economic recovery since General Suharto saved the country from a threatened Communis't coup and eased out President Sukarno in 1965 and 1966. Spurring the growth has been considerable foreign aid and investment, which com- bined is expected to reach billion this year. NEW WEALTH But most of the country's new wealth still ends up in Jakarta, which has 60 per cent of the money in circulation in Indonesia, 30 per cent of its telephones, and the biggest share of its television sets. Most of it is owned by a small minority of "new rich" people who live in the 24 per cent of the city's dwellings officially called and are among the 15 per cent supplied with sewerage, purified water, and a regular power supply. It is mostly they who patronize the city's 98 cinemas; 36 nightclubs, and 32 massage parlors and send their children to Jakarta's 340 schools. (Half of Jakarta's children do not The consumer society, in other words, is conspicuous to all but available to very few. It's the kind of situation that has proved highly volatile in other countries, including the United States, wherever masses of people have moved from poor rural areas into modern cities. Exacerbating the problem in Indonesia is the fact that most of its 128 million people are jammed into the small island of Java with an average of almost persons per square mile. General Sadikin used to bank his hopes on the so-called green revolution to stem Jakarta's rising influx of peasants from the land. SLOW PROGRESS But the new high-yield crops have progressed slowly; and besides, some 80 per cent of central Javanese peasants no longer own land and the rest have an average holding of less than an acre apiece. Wages in the countryside, in the seasons when work is available, are seldom more I DRY GLEAMING THE LOAD C 1 8-lb8.

Meanwhile, population conr tinues to grow. Family plann- ing got under way only during the past year. Even if it succeeds, the population still will 150 million to 160 million by 1980. The pressure on Jakarta to absorb some of these millions is immense. But with a tiny tax base, General Sadikin simply does not have the money to create jobs for new migrants. He has already had to resort to highly unorthodox methods to raise municipal revenues of only million, promoting gambling, entertainment, and sex and then taxing it heavily. Orthodox Muslims accuse him of turning Jakarta into a "sin city" with all the horse racing, dog racing, lotteries, casinos, amusement parks, and massage parlors.
