Radford Times Journal (Newspaper) - August 22, 1976, Radford, Virginia
Tic sunday times journal kjlaskl.va., August 22,1976 our View now i focus on the fat is in the fire. Will the real Jimmy Carter please stand the Odds political observers Are currently placing their bets on a successful candidacy by Carter for presidency of the United states. Good old trustworthy honest Jerry Ford in t Given a Chance. Despite the fact that Ford has brought respectability Back to the White House even while some Democrat members of the Congress were bringing disrepute to capital Hill and despite the fact that Ford has stabilized the Economy brought a halt to inflation and lifted the country from recession he s still just Good old Jerry who in t Given a Chance to claim the office in his own right. I for one disagree. We have Short memories. Carter who at present holds a wide Lead in opinion polls has yet to be tried in the Crucible of a general Campaign which demands specifics. He has thus far been successful in generalizing on the issues without coming to grips with pinpoint solutions and antidotes for the ailments of a profligate and responsible Congress. Ford has had two years of experience in dealing with spend crafts who control Congress and the bureaucrats who really control the country. While Good old Jerry has done a remarkable Job in restoring Confidence in the adhi nitration and in restoring health to the Economy he is still just just Good old meanwhile Carter came out of a Peanut Patch in Georgia and mesmerized the electorate with a Toothy smiling facade. He told everyone exactly what they wanted to hear depending on the Section country in which he happened to be campaigning at the moment. His Appeal to the voters thus far has been More emotional than considered. So Robert who Paul Harvey religion and presidency separated not divorced but now we consider. It is probably no Accident when assessing the needs of the current Campaign that sen. Robert Dole was named As Ford s running mate. Dole is expected to be the Sharp Edge of a cutting Campaign that will slice issues Down to minute sizes. If Carter has to done his Homework it is bound to show up in the next 70 Days. Dole is abrupt caustic and knowledgeable. While he is compatible with Ford on the issues their individual approach to Battle is dissimilar. But still in my opinion Dole is not necessarily a Crutch to Ford. I remember 1948 when Ford upset an entrenched congressman from grand rapids. Not Only was the incumbent entrenched he was also of dutch ancestry. Beating a dutchman in grand rapids is no mean feat but Ford did it. After that 1948 election i had an Opportunity to have a Long conversation with Ford. How did you do it i asked and As i remember he said he just kept plugging along calling on people taking every Opportunity to talk to them. He was a Long shot to win but he did. It was in that same year that give pm hell Harry Truman upset All of the prognosticators and Defeated Dewey. In some instances this race of 1976 might be likened to. Truman s race. Truman had a recalcitrant Congress which he labelled a do nothing outfit. Ford might Well say the same except for one difference his Congress wants to give the country to everyone with a hand out. Granted Ford does not come on Well in a formal Public speaking appearance. Carter does. Ford s strength is More person to person Exchange where his Basic sincerity and honesty come Forth. I think this personality strength will show strongly if and when Ford and Carter enter into a series of debates. The president has been doing his Homework for the past 26 years. He does t have to remember what he said in Detroit when answering the same question in Memphis. Carter has had some trouble in that respect. I m not Selling Ford Short. Carter is a Glamour candidate that s True. He has the chairman of a John Kennedy. But if i had a Marriageable age daughter As of this moment i d rather see a Guy like Jerry Ford walk in the House. Doonesbury it was with much Wisdom that Pur nation s founders carefully constitutionally surgically separated Church and state. Government Sanc honed Region inevitably eventuate in a government imposed religion. Unless you separate Church and state one will surely dominate the other. Neither however did the founding fathers divorce god and country for to do that is to build your House on Sand. Every president of the United states from George Washington to Gerald Ford has affirmed belief in god. President John f. Kennedy said of his predecessors while they came from a wide variety of religious backgrounds and held a wide variety of religious beliefs each of our presidents in his own Way placed his Trust in if there is such a thing As a most religious of All our presidents biographer Josephine Walker nominates Bwhaminc-olnhe6vei4 belonged to any Shuf or of Andrew Jackson did not speak of his religion until after he was out of the White House fearing such a proclamation might be construed As politically after a was it be White Houser however Jackson confided that he had read three chapters of scripture a Day. Most every Day of his adult life. He then joined a presbyterian Church which he had helped to build. Other presidents who kept their religion to themselves until after they were out of office were James Buchanan and Franklin Pierce. President Benjamin Harrison once said prayer steadies one when he is walking in Slippery Lyndon Johnson said prayer has helped me to Bear the burdens of the office which Are too great to be borne by Dwight Eisenhower said personal prayer is As necessary to life As food and water and sometimes More so. " and in a Handwritten memo on White House stationery facially. He attended services regularly and prayed regularly. Thomas Jefferson compiled his own paraphrased Bible a volume of the teachings of Jesus John Adams was both a professing and a practising disciple and William Mckinley considered christianity the mightiest Force Fth c quiz Inythe interestingly another president who never officially belonged to any Church denomination was nonetheless one of our nation s More devout leaders Rutherford b. Hayes. Harry Truman once wrote out a prayer 01 petition a Man be said he had repeated every Day since his High school Days. A life Magazine reporter once wrote that the men who have served in the presidency have sometimes rediscovered dormant faiths As they were driven by National crises Back to their but this did not make them saints the sceptics remind us. Perhaps offered the Best response to that. He said if the world is bad in spite of religion can you imagine what a Jungle it would be without it me Firsti of me first. No me first after five years of legislative wrangling Congress appears close to agreement on a much needed method of controlling the production and use of toxic chemicals. The Senate has passed a Bill and House action is scheduled this month. For Good reasons the Federal government already 1 controls such things As food additives pesticides and nuclear materials and recent controversies make it Plain that the 1,000 new chemicals introduced into the . Market each year need to be More closely watched.

Proposed legislation would require manufacturers to report All new chemicals three months before production. It would authorize the environmental Protection Agency Epa to screen such substances before they Are marketed order testing for those potentially dangerous and move to ban or restrict chemicals found to threaten health or the environment. Yet to be resolved Between House and Senate is whether the Epa should have the Power to order tests and Block chemicals on its own or be. Required to seek such action through the courts. Epa administrator Russell train thinks the latter is a Good Compromise and the manufacturing chemists association has endorsed outside controls As Long As third party redress is allowed. If the Federal government is going to have Power Over toxic chemicals it should be in a Way that instills Confidence in the chemical Industry and Consumers alike. At a time when the whole subject of government regulation has come under fire the Epa will have to balance carefully legitimate consumer and environmental Protection with the very real concerns of Small businesses under increasing bureaucratic weight.

Jack Anderson hate groups love ague Washington but for the Diligence of Federal prosecutors Spiro t. Agnew might have been waving his hands in Victory from the podium of the Republican National convention this past week. Four years ago Agnew was at the Peak of his popularity. Millions cheered from the sidelines As he stridently attacked the Media Radic Libs and opponents of the Vietnam War. His standing in the opinion polls gave Agnew a bargaining position that he used to full advantage. When he agreed to fun As Richard Nixon s 1972 vice presidential candidate he elicited the president s endorsement of him As the 1976 heir apparent. But Agnew s shot at the White House was Cut Short by 40 pages of evidence that detailed his lawlessness. He resigned to avoid prosecution and a possible jail term. Since his resignation Agnew has authored a novel taken Over a right Wing Public interest group set. Up a private consulting business and used his past prominence As a platform for bitter attacks on jews. Many prominent americans including president Ford have condemned Agnew s intemperate statements. However the hate groups of the far right Are using them As proof positive that they were right All along about the jewish influence in America. The b Nai brith anti defamation league which monitors the hate groups has found that Agnew s comments Are popular topics in the extremist press. Would to god that we had ten men of Agnew s courage screamed the july Issue of Cross and Flag a racist tabloid founded by the late Gerald . Smith. That could save America from the bondage of the in the opinion of hatemonger William Pierce editor of attack a monthly newspaper Agnew did t go far enough.
