S. MARSHAL A judge can make decisions, rea,ch judgments, and issue or- ders, but some!body has to I ca:rTy them out. On the state level, ,our sheriffs do job, but for the United States courts the U. S. M,ars!hl and his dep- uties dlo the work. I The U. S. Marshal is a kind! of federal sheriff named by i the President to serve for: four years. He takes orders from the Depa,rtment of Jus-i tce and the judges of the: court he serves. The marshal, lke he sher- iff, ,has ,his deputies. "lhey make arrests on federal war-I rants. ,serve papers' in weuits i in the federal courts, subpoe- rm witnesses, summon the jury, and seize property on federal curt writs. The marshal also rrmn,ages .... the money set aside for fed- , era'l courts, paying federal judges, witness :and jury fees, and the board and ro(rm of federal prisoners held in 'oca,1 jaits. nlike the county, the fed- evM goverrment ,has no ocat jails. So, the marNml keeps prisoners aw.Nting trail or commitment ir county ,and city jail,s ,at federal expense. For prisoners hem a few hurs whie waitin to appear for trial or to make bond, the marshal usually ,has a small lockup in his )ffice. The msrshal transports pris- oneas to the )ai in which they ,are to be hetd or serve mer. There is ,often excitement in le marshal's work, but mostly ,he follows thr>ugh for the courts. In floe old dys when much of the west was territories im stead of states, he oftea hd the job of ,local law enorco- ment now taken over by the p'olee and the county sheriff.

Most land operators trove been busy seeding their spainR i erops, irmldrg gra d al- fa,lfa phntings. Art Halverson, Espanola; Clrno Bros., Amber; acid Floyd ,Simpson, Cheney, have seeded a combimed lx)tal in excess of 100 acres under the hilltop seeding program this year. Ths makes lhese three farms with nearly 100 per cent of the hilltops in grass and alfiatfa cover. Pat experierce ,has indicat- ed thi,s hi],ltop seedin,g practice is very effective in eoatm:ng erosion, prtieularly on nW)rh sopes, besides addirg organic matter atd soil fertility to e'oded soil's. An epidemi a.len this line would be more than desirable. Most of the engineering type practices are being ,held u by wet weather cendit/ons. How- ever, ,a pi,peliaae for livestock water has been planned w$h Gene and Lyle KaIKan, San- gle, a tile line with M. M. Tan- ner, Spokae; and an irrigation [pond with Mel SunderNnd, I Cheney. There has probably never een a more charming bureau- crat in Washington in all his- tory than Mrs Esther Peter- son, the presidential advisor on consumer affairs. Highly intelligent, most ar- ticulate, and very personable, she is a fantastically able platform performer. In fact, if in entertain- ment indus- try instead of politics, she might easi- ly be a com- petitor with Helen Hayes 'or title "first lady of the theatre." * $ * C.W. Harder Of course, it is hard to im- agine why the Federal gov- ernment needs an office for consumers. It would seem ob- vious that all people are con- sumers of something or other. Thus compared to Senators and Congressmen who only represent a part of the people, the office must be higher than the Congress, as what Cong- ressman can claim the whole nation ,for a constituency. However, it is interesting to note some of the activities of the office for consumers. Just as invasion of advertising has to a large extent diverted the Federal Trade Commission from important tasks it is sup- posed to perform, advertising has become a very big thing in the affairs of the office of consumers. Last year it was attempted to get the Federal l Communications Commission to issue an edict prescribing exactly how much advertising st radio or TV station can run. The Congress passed a law prohibiting the FCC from mak- ing any such ruling. * $ * But in a recent speech Mrs. Peterson commented on this legislation saying "Can self- reguation work in an area where there is such limited from government?" This is a very provocative md interesting statement. It means "Can the members of the broadcasting industry, largely made up of indepen. dent entrepreneurs, run its own business, or should gov- ernment tell each operator how to operate?" Thus in a nut- shell is expressed the entire bureacratic concept, namely, hat nobody, but nobody, is as competent to run a business as a government employee. Actually, there are two very strong regulatory agcncie,  working on the broadcasting industry. One is that if a sta- tion's programming becomes too clogged with advertising, then it fails to attract listen- ers. The second regulation is that if this happens, then it fails to attract advertisers. In other words, the law of supply and demand works quite freely in the broadcasting industry. As a matter of fact, this law is working right now. Because many stations have been running too much com- mercial content, many big ad- vertisers are now forsaking the airways to place their advertis- ing budgets in newspapers. Government guidance is no substitttte for the guidance contained in the profit and loss statement of any business.
