Sioux Center News (Newspaper) - April 4, 1974, Sioux Center, IowaEditorials tapering of Ltd trial spading could ittle Check Lif Litlo most thinking americans Are convinced we believe that a tapering off of Federal spending at least to the Point that the government could operate for a change in the Black would be one sensible practical and fairly easy Way of helping bring run away inflation in Check and give More stability to the National Economy. True a cutback of Federal spending might mean fewer handouts Grants by Uncle Sam for various projects but if such cuts would help stabilize the Economy the nation could readily afford to get along with fewer or trimmed Down projects at least for a time. The proposed Federal budget for 1975 Calls for spending $304.4 billion. Think of it Federal receipts at Best will amount to $295 Bil lion so if carried through As suggested we Are going to add nearly another $10 billion to our National debt. We continue to spend Money on the Federal level As if it grew on Trees without if we can continue to add billions and billions to our National debt every year and not in time pay a severe penalty for it the defense department alone plans to spend $84.6 billion during the coming fiscal year. For a year of so called world peace and continued Cooling of the cold War Between communist nations and the West that seems a bit extravagant to say the least. But the defense department is for it. The administration is for it most of the Congress is apparently for it. So it appears unlikely that any trimming will come. Unless and that s a very doubtful unless the people demand that it be trimmed. Most of the $10 billion increase in the Federal budget for 1975 reflects Sharp increases in health welfare social Security food Stamps and defense spending. Admittedly there might be some justification in this period of rapid inflation for the people of fixed incomes and lower incomes to receive More. But this can happen and the budget still be held within projected receipts if we Are willing to eliminate some of the fluff in other areas. Common sense Good business sense tells us that it is High time we started to realize there definitely is a limit to Federal spending that a never ending build up of the National debt is not the Way to permanent Prosperity and financial stability. Must we spend our Way to disaster we can still reverse this fiscal irresponsibility per haps in time if willing. But who is to do it the people can look to political leaders to move us in the right direction. A ,m4 1074 the Sioux Center news Page 2thursday, april 4, 19/4 but it appears that looking is not enough. It s going to take some pressure from the people if they want a change of direction they re going to have to stand up and be counted and be willing to give up a Little. ,. They Are going to have to move m unison and in Sist demand that our governmental representatives in Washington do what should have been done a Long time ago Cut Federal spending even if it is unpopular in certain self entered circles. This is a truth so obvious that it is maddening to have to keep bringing it up. It makes one feel like the Wolf howling in the dark whose howl is wafted away on the wind. ,. It s a Case of everyone knowing what should in the face of Good judgment be done but everyone turning a deaf ear hoping on Hope that to ignore the problem will make it go away. Why of Why must it be so your Faith & mine by Tom Westfall i a sure cure for Toothache several trips to the dentist recently served to remind me of William Shakespeare s observation there never was a philosopher who could endure a Toothache How right he was and his words Don t apply Only to philosophers either most of us find it difficult to be patient in the face of life s adversities and problems. If we have a Toothache we want u dentist. If we Are sick we want a doctor. If we Are in financial difficulty we want Money. If we Are bored we want companionship and excitement. And we want these things now this human trait of seeking to escape from pain Lone Liness. And financial distress can often create More problems than it solves. For instance we assume that the answer to a financial problem is More Money when in reality it might be a More Wise and patient use of the Money we have. Or As so Many people do we might think the answer to loneliness is to Compromise our values in order to be popular when actually we need patiently to cultivate in ourselves the Quali ties of heart and mind which make us acceptable on our own terms. Thus mistakenly we set ourselves on a course which ultimately will Rob us of the genuine solution to our problems. Most of us tend toward this Over simplification with the result that our deepest problems never Are solved. Impatient to rid ourselves of them we treat symptoms rather than the disease itself. Sometimes though we become weary of trying to treat a major disease with aspirin. We desire a real and lasting solution to our life s distress. If you have reached this Point in your life i suggest that you make an exhaustive inquiry into the claims of Jesus Christ. You May find that he can Supply you with patience in abundance and the peace which patience bestows. Of yes he May take care of your Toothache also " Sioux county court House news Thomas James Gnewuch appeared by his attorney Loren Veldhuizen before judge l. Mccormick.
