Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - March 26, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news warmer these Days by George e. Sokolsky a logical apr ranch professor Calvin b. Hoover cd Duke University jut a Bull s Eye when he defined co existence a we have become accustomed to thinking of a policy of co existence with soviet Russia As the opposite of our present foreign policy. In fact it is paradoxical to present a policy of co existence As an alternative to our present foreign policy. We have of course been coexisting with the soviet regime for the forty years of its Lite. Indeed we May Well ask ourselves How we could possibly have carried on a foreign policy which would have afforded an alternative to coexistence the historical answer is that the alternative to the coexistence of governments has been annihilation of the one or Tho other for almost the first time in history the alternatives to coexistence now includes the annihilation of vol. 80, no. 72 it. Pm Basant. Iowa. Wednesday even Ino. I Ash Ai. Dias Start new Moon Bottom Wint away Rains. The Hill under the House just washed away this Al Sobrane. Calif., Home sags like a Leaky balloon following heavy actually every people co exists or even exists without the co. With every other people whether they Uke it or not unless one of them has been exterminated. And usually even if a country moves from first place to tenth or is conquered by other people in War the people still exist. For instance Poland is now More or less a province of soviet Russia but the polish people still exist and with characteristic stiff necked Ness re j a business basis and Sis total absorption by soviet fort made Council gives report anti information on program Russia As is evidenced by the successful Battle which is being waged in that country for the survival of the roman Catholic Church the russians give a special meaning however to the term coexistence. They do not mean that nations or people continue to live together in a narrowing world. What they do mean is that varying systems of life continue to thrive and grow simultaneously. Some Early marxists did not believe that possible. It All comes Down to the fact that Willy Nilly we have to live with the russians As unpleasant As it May he. We have had 40 years of the unpleasantness and Are As a matter of fact learning How for one thing we Are learning that it is unnecessary for the russians to Tell the truth or to live up to an agreement or to keep a bargain. When one knows by Long experience that that is the situation he finds a mechanism for getting along. For instance this Summit conference business. It is becoming increasingly obvious from statements made by Khrushchev and Bulgarin that they do not want any kind of a Summit conference. It has been Clear to Secretary of state Dulles that the talk about tile conference is a hoax and a fraud designed to achieve some other purpose. Lits talk it Over Early this year it was explained the City government would be Reot Gani de. As far As possible on definite Clio operate within the this has bet a Accorne the Genius of russians is to be what the primary is not an easy opinion which i living with the Able to discover purpose is that task. My own will not too enthusiastically Back is that the primary purpose is to develop a Public opinion in great Britain which will be exceedingly unfavourable to the United states. Others believe that the Campaign is aimed at West Germany. Still others Are looking for a clue in the Middle East. The reason that i assume that this Campaign for the Summit conference has nothing to do with the Summit conference but is designed to deteriorate Anglo american relations is because precisely that is occurring not Only Anglo american relations but also american Canadian relations which in most j respects Are at their very worst. This is probably the first time in history that both political parties i in Canada Are openly anti american. There May be Many causes for this but obviously the most a serious cause is that canadians feel that they Are being led into another War by the americans. Too their leaders must realize that in the next War they will have Little Chance for much of the fighting will be in the air Over their soil they will have no Means of preventing both soviet Russia and the United states from flying their bomb carrying planes Over Canada for it is Likely that most of the flying will be across the North pole As the shortest route Between the United states and soviet Russia. So Lester Pearson becomes a pacifist and wins a Nobel prize but none of that will help because geography and weapons determine the nature of War. Pearson cannot change geography but soviet Russia can scare the canadians which it is doing very effectively. Copyright. 1958 King features Syndicate Inch 1 budget Lis lied. The City Council believes it is desirable to keep the Public informed of the program being developed r is hoped the following will be of interest garbage the City has been picking up i garbage free at less than one third of the Homes at a Cost to the City of approximately $10,000 annually. Part of the coat of this service was paid out of direct taxes while part was paid out. Of the Light fund i i which All who use electricity or pay taxes participated the Council decided to charge for the service by contracting with a garbage collector at $1.25 pc month who will make two collections of garbage and one collection of cans and other material each week at the Homes wishing the service. The Council does not agree that some people of or. Pleasant will leave their garbage in the alleys. The service is available to Allar a Cost piss than the Cost of driving i to the dump grounds. However re a Cep tables will be placed at the left of the dump Entrance to receive garbage for those who wish to drive to the dump. Garbage and other junk materials must be kept in separate containers cans in which garbage is placed should not leak and should have tight lids. The collector will be in town before april 1st watch for a notice in the news. The dump last year decaying carcasses of chickens legs hogs and sheep were scattered All Over the dump grounds along with garbage. It resulted in millions of flies thousands of rats which had to be poisoned the Council Felt this condition should be cleaned up since it was so close to the Pool Hospital and Park and a cause for criticism from the Stah Board of health. The Council believes that most if not All the people will concur with the action taken. Sewers As most people now know our sanitary sewers and storm sewers Are one and the same. A Lew weeks ago the main line running through Saunders Park became clogged and filth of All description overflowed into the Stream running through h the Park the sewer was cleaned and it is hoped it will suffice for the present but final results cannot be determined until we have a heavy ram. It May be necessary to direct some surface water into open ditches. More on this later Street sweeper the gutters Are filled with dirt which washed into the streets from Yards. This dirt along with leaves and other debris is carried into the sewers requiring dragging As was done recently to prevent sewers from overflowing it was believed a sweeper could keep this dirt picked up As it is almost impossible to do the Job with men and brooms it Aas therefore decided to accept an offer for a demonstration to see if a sweeper can handle the Job. Not Only around the Square by All paved streets. It May be Nee Saary to lower the level of the parkways where they Are higher than the curbs to avoid dirt and debris from entering the sewers water softeners at tile present we Are delivering i not been revised for Many years although tin Cost of Mali rial and lab a has increased considerably Winch results Iii a loss to the fit % Vav must therefor with it i i the service Cha to and Pun hav ame Nett equipment to improve i tile service or go out of the sol of Lier business.
