Sioux Center News (Newspaper) - September 18, 1974, Sioux Center, IowaEditorials few few a Impulsion fit Kird in wish Taft , impressions brought Home from a trip to washing ton d. C., last week those who live on Capitol Hill and in the area sur rounding it Are not generally speaking As uptight about the state of the nation and particularly its econ omy As Are most mid americans. Nor does the after math of watergate seem to be As worrisome to them. We got the impression to be sure that they Are a Ware that major problems loom on the horizon. But they believe the problems Are that Given enough time and Money the solutions will surely come and if they Don to worry in t going to help the situation a great Deal. The approximately 115 Northwest Lowans from 26 different communities who attended the two Day con Ference on thursday and Friday were told in rather Frank manner that there is Belt tightening called for in the Days ahead by everyone if we Are to bring run away inflation under control or at least slow it to the Point that we can live with it. Yet at the same conference top government official including three members of president Ford s Cabinet pointed out that there would be no elimination of essential programs that there would be allocations made to keep the More vital programs in operation and serv ing the people s needs and improving our Way of life. Some better system of establishing priorities will be called for we were told projects Given top priority will for the most part get the funding they need to continue on a near Norm al basis. There will be less Federal Money and less state Money also available for projects and programs lower on the priority list. In some instances the cuts will be rather substantial As indeed they already have been. John c. Sawhill head of the Federal Energy administration told the Northwest Lowans that current High Gas prices will remain with us for some time perhaps for several years that the Price of natural Gas probably will double within the next 12 months that the Price of up Gas will have to increase if the present critically Short Supply is to be overcome. Sawhill said the Arab embargo on Oil and the resulting raise in Price of Arab Oil from $1.90 a barrel to nearly $12 a barrel was responsible for the initial Sharp raise in Gas and Oil prices and will continue to dictate the continued High prices until such time As our own Oil companies can increase our Domestic production to the Point that we can be come self sufficient in meeting our fuel needs. He said the Price of natural Gas will almost certainly be raised As an inducement to the Southern producers most of the nation s Gas Fields Are in the South to develop and pipe More natural Gas to other sections of the nation. We were told that $4 to $5 billion dollars May be trimmed from the National budget during the ensuing fiscal year As the nation moves hopefully towards a softening of inflation. This can be done we were told without hurting essential programs or affecting Indus try or business adversely if it is broadly applied As they expect it will be. Sec. Of agriculture Earl Butz who spoke to the Iowa group on thursday morning said that the nation s farm production this year will be Good generally speaking and probably will be the second Best in history. There Are exceptions in some areas he said and pointed out that the livestock producers Are facing some grave problems but he was optimistic about the Overall american farm production and described it As the strongest thing in the nation. He pointed out that american farm exports the past year totalled a bout $11 billion and that this More than offset the $9.3 billion that we paid during the same period for Energy imports. Butz said our farm production and particularly food has now become More important As an instrument of peace than our military might and that it is far better that we use bushels rather than bullets in our quest for permanent Butz believes that american Farmers in general Are pleased with the turn around in farm policy that has occurred in recent months that of adopting All out production on nearly All our cult Vatable land rather than utilizing a farm subsidy program involving the idling of specified acreages As was the Case for so Many previous years. Butz admitted that the High Price of feed grains that prevails is an almost insurmountable problem for the cattle producers that strive to produce Choice beef but in the next breath he said that lower Corn prices was not the solution for the livestock producer that the producer would need to seek other answers. Butz did not elaborate further. Time limits that were necessarily worked into the conference program term i Ina Ted his response to questions put to him by the Northwest Lowans. However More details regarding Butz speech will be covered in next week s Issue As More time and space permits As will the speeches delivered by 16 oth. T x your Faith & mine by Tom Westfall second string gods when i played football years ago our coach used to Tell us take care of yourselves. Remember you can t win games with substitutes. I be thought of his words Many times since As i be observed persons playing the game of life with second stringers. Could be this is our chief problem trying to make life meaningful with substitutes for the real thing. For example take the Man who tries to substitute sex for an authentic love relationship. He ends up knowing nothing much of either love or sex. Or observe the woman who makes the foolish mistake of substituting Beauty of face and figure for the Beauty of character. How pitiful it is to see her in her Middle years trying futilely to preserve her Only reason for being. So much of life is ruined because we so often Settle for second Best. We persistently make substitutions which Block the door to self Realiza Tion. Never is this More tragic than when we try to substitute something else for god. Second string gods Are a dime a dozen on today s scene. Careers Money astrology drugs even sex fill the god space in Many people. No wonder then Why they scamper from experience to experience from thrill to thrill trying to make the game of life meaningful. And no wonder they so often come up empty unfulfilled losers in the contest of life. It is inevitable. As my old coach warned you can t win games with substitutes. Sioux count.
