Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - August 13, 1970, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it pleasant. News partly Cloudy vol. 92, no. 190 it. Pleasant Iowa thursday evening August 13, 1970 Price to cents these Days by John Chamberlain the space Agency a Many dividends if we did no to have the Moon program a or Cambodia a or the military Industrial Complex a wed have lots of Money to plow into the ghettos. You name the Liberal Politico whether he a mayor John Lindsay of new York or senator George Mcgovern of South Dakota or americans for democratic actions Joe Duffey of Connecticut and this is what the Man is saying. There Isnit a hint that any of them has Ever pondered the round about Ness of production or the fact that in economic life one thing feeds another. The rehabilitation of ghettos depends on taxes and taxes depend on an economic system that is functioning on at least eight cylinders. You just done to get Money for one thing by shutting Down something else. So lets talk about the recently much maligned space program for instance. In Joe Duffey a Connecticut it has resulted in a double action advantage to workers in the manufacturing City of Bridgeport where the Remington Shaver division a subsidiary of Sperry Rand corporation is branching out into a number of things S.C. As housewares. Sperry Rand As is Well known has been deep in space projects manufacturing components for Moon capsules that require the most exacting sort of knowledge of the heat characteristics of exotic metals. Well the space program May not be doing so Well if the present �?osave-thb-Money-foi>4he-ghettos�?� attitude spreads. But the time that Sperry Rand has spent on space projects is going to reap big dividends simply because there is S.C. a thing in the world As a synergy a or the combined action of things to produce something else. Too to give one example the Remington division of Sperry Rand has found that exotic metals from a space capsule can be used to create housewares products that will retain their heat for 45 minutes or longer without being attached to an electrical outlet. What this will do for the housewife who wants a cordless serving dish or a portable Thermal unit to poach or steam foods is quite obvious. It will also keep workers at work a and keep people out of the ghettos a As the space program dwindles. Let us Hope however that the space program does no to die away to nothing or the next burst of a a synergistic Energy just wont happen. Too my feeling in that the Liberal politicos who reduce economics to a simple a either or business of the a military Industrial Complex ver sus ghetto rehabilitation must have one Cylinder minds. This is most charitable explanation of the platform behaviour of the messes. Lindsay Mcgovern Duffey and company. If they actually know what they Are doing one would have to say they Are being demagogues so lets give them the Benefit of the doubt not every politician however is guilty of celebrating on one Cylinder. Connecticut a representative Lowell Weicker for instance appeared recently before a special u. S. Senate subcommittee hearing at Kings Point to suggest that the space program had developed toys which might be used to clean up Long Island sound or any other polluted body of water. He told about a recent overflight of the hew York and Connecticut coastline by representatives of the National aeronautics and space administration Nasa. The Nasa people photographed the water and the land with special sensitive Infra red film which has been developed1 by space technologists. When interpreted by Fred ruggies of the us. Geological service the photos showed the buildup of pollution patterns and the movement of split in the increasingly contaminated coastal Waters. Or. John Denoyer of nasal a Barth observation division told the Senate subcommittee that the space Agency had Only barely scratched the surface in providing tools for fighting pollution. It has developed sensors that Cen be improved to where they will pinpoint the exact origins of contamination. This is something for the messes. Lindsay Mcgovern Duffey mid company to Chew on.
