There Are hints that Moscow is listening to american proposals at the strategic arms talks in Europe the Kremlin plumps for relaxation All this might suggest inclinations toward peaceable Nesa yet there is something about Moscow s attitude which Calls to mind the old russian adage about approaching a Friendly Bear with extreme caution. Temporarily at least soviet leaders seem to want to turn their attention away from Europe to Mark time there. They Are concerned about red China and Asia but China May be More an irritation than a real worry. Historically Moscow has liked to take care of one big project at a time having a distaste for chewing too Many Large bites simultaneously.

Vietnam not withstanding. Soviet leaders have just briefed the top brass of their Warsaw pact clients on the wherefores of the agreement with West Germany whose clauses on Mutual guarantees of frontiers and renunciation of Force mean Little the idea of West Germany alone threaten ing Moscow is ridiculous no matter How scary soviet props Ganda can be on that subject economic the need of the russians for West German knowhow and goods another May Stem from an anxiety for stability on the immediate Western Borders because of Moscow s internal economic and political problems the russians have a 24th Community party Congress coming up next March a year later which could bring clashes on both economic and political fronts Between entrenched party bureaucrats and the Reform minded element some of the latter even seeking a bit of democratization.

Improved pesticides May come by Frank Carey a science writer Washington a a team of Texas researchers said today it has developed chemicals which could increase the effectiveness of herbicides and insecticides while decreasing environmental pollution the chemicals. Called a water degradable polymers a a also could be used As a pharmaceutical Aid or in the packaging Industry the researchers said. M l. Beasley and r l. Collins both of Austin science associates inc., told of the development in a report to the technical journal a science. Polymers Are compounds created by the Union of two or More similar molecules. The new compound has the same elements As the original but possesses a higher molecular weight and has different physical properties u the new polymers differ from those already discovered in that they break Down in the presence of moisture. The chemicals when combined with conventional herbicides produce a Sticky resin which can be applied to plants. The addition of moisture causes the polymer to break Down releasing the herbicide the researchers said conventional Weed and insect killers pollute water supplies because rain and i Riga Tico water washes away much of the chemical. Farmers thus must use ten. Time. A Cutcli p i e As would be normally needed. They said tests of a polymerized 2,4-d on grazing lands in Kansas Quot showed exceptional control a of weeds at application a Tes of one Pound per acre a no evidence for migration of herbicide was found a a the researchers said. Because the new chemicals break Down slowly in the presence of moisture they conceivably could be used with medicines that need to be slowly released within the body. They also could be wed in conjunction with conventional packaging materials the researchers said the two scientists said a this wide Yte to of polymers offers great Promise tar the controlled release of her see pesticide Page 10 review rotary plans Washington rotary club officials review plans tor activities during the coming be with Robert stalling District governor tor District 773.

Wyatt when a local census confirmed the fact that w Ashington had lost , the following Story the first of two scheduled deals with directions for the City especially in Light of the census results As seen by its mayor and City manager. The second article to he published next week will Deal with annexation what it Means How its done and How it would affect an average family. By de Walker or. City editor what does Washington North Carolina with its population of 8,600 have in common with new York City a 9,000,000? a very Little thank goodness a a most people in the Washington area would say because they like living in. Of around an towns. But analogies Between new York and Washington Are not. Really As absurd or far fetched As they might seem. To those who sit Back and observe the agonies of those in new York and Suburbia with the attitude that these agonised co ukr never happen Here a the recent census count of the a town Washington a presents s boding Omen. New York Chicago Philadelphia Baltimore and Boston and their sur Berfas Are of for cities dying from the inside out. Their financial basis is totally inadequate their leadership has moved to the suburbs Only to delay their problems and All their local governments have the time or Money to do is to react to immediate problems that should have been planned for years in Advance. The Northeast is in a very real sense one big spiritless housing development without enough togetherness to keep con Edison straight or it s Industry from choking it to death. Excluding the smog the Washington area is shaping up As a microcosm with the same problems. If it does no to grow it fades. If it does grow without adequate planning it will be just another place to live without its Charm. City manager de Wyatt and mayor a. Thomas Stewart both Point to the City a increasingly inadequate financial Baste As Only the most immediate symptom of a Long evident and Long Range problem. This problem is that like the larger cities Washington is losing much of its potential As those who would normally help Lead the City live outside its limits. Quot its obvious but Well Worth repeating a Wyatt said a that a City can do what its leaders inspire its people to do. There Are two cities of Washington one within the City limits the other in the surrounding residential and Industrial Wyatt explained a the real problem in situation is not that to doctors lawyers and business men outside the limits Are net paying or not contributing a share. The City has recreation fees charges water electricity fire police Protection this will doubtless have to a increased in the future eve via some esses for those who Uva in the City. Washington could certainly use their taxes Bat what it needs most is the additional dynamic leadership Force for advancement Bath is physical expansion Aad la Quality of life which they represent Many of them Ara leaders outside governor heat now but they Are needed in the government and in the City As the City a future becomes Mora obviously their future a Wyatt elaborated. A planned physical expansion is As necessary to a City As to a business Quot a he said. A there is m such thing As standing still. Tha census has shown m that you either grow or you. Gsg reas. People of the Washington area need to co me plan a the manager annexation is one of tha ultimate directions the Ftp must Taka both Stewart Aad Wydau agree. The question of whether to Annex areas with Industrial capacity first or go after population is left open. There is however a difference in the sense of Gurfney As Felt by Stewart Aad Wyatt and this differ docs staff photo by Litchfield no such thing As standing still you either grow or die itself in a difference in the emphasis of the two Alao. A very stumbling mock to immolate annexation is that the City cannot afford it to Annex a City must Supply water and sewage to the people it annexes. Washington Park could not be annexed without the consent of its people because it is a corporate town other areas Are subject to forced annexation. A the people who would help take the Lead in overcoming the financial problems. Wyatt explained a in Many cases live outside the City. A we re really kind of boxed in Quot he said. A it of hard to Tell whether to put the cart before the horse or the horse before the cart. Right now they Are standing Side by Side looking in opposite directions annexation to Ilaya a Stewart will have to come As the City gradually works itself into s position to afford it he explained that the City s extra Money has for several years now gone into the a much needed Job of redevelopment within the City a a or As he also put it. A cleaning up our own a Muf a Stewart is a Strong supporter of a sales tax especially if it excludes Basic foodstuffs. He favored the recent one cent county option which Beaufort county failed to vote in. A this mums to me to be the fairest Way for local governments to increase revenues to meet rising demands he said. A despite the loss in population a Stewart commented a the City area his grown economically and this growth plus the attraction of a More Beautiful City will increase Revenue red Wydau. Although not disagreeing with Stewart does recommend a More immediate Aad aggressive role on the pert of local leaders a Washington is the Center of this Wyatt said a it has in the past and must continue to provide the focal Pomi tor Progress.
