EDITOR One Kennedy Is Plenty, Two Is One Too Many If Bobby Kennedy's senatorial am,bitten in New York weren't such a serious matter, it could be regarded as one of the greatest j,okes of the year. The joke, unfortunately, is on the residents of New York nd this ration. Kennedy has about as much business rep- resenting New York as Frank Sinatra has being mayor of Seattle. His decim'on to seek the senate sea,t from New York is without any questionable doubt based on pursuit of personal power and position. It is not, and cannt be regarded as having the best inter- ests of the New Yorkers. The saddest thing abouc this wlmle de- bacle is that he probably will win the elec- tion if he is ominated One of these days, vhen it may be too hte, it will be realized that these Kennedys are power grabbers, bent on promoting their own images. They :ave their fortunes made. thanks to old Joe, and nw they intend to dictate and manipu- late the fortunes and lives of others. Bobby Kennedy has stated over and over that "all tim jobs open to lm are slowly being eliminated." One thing 'he hasn't men- tioned is that he ,holds a pretty good job right now. Why the big rush to quit the job as Attorney General? Could it be this wasn't Ms actual fur, cti ,at all during the years `his brother was running the country. Wht .loft- ier governmental portion could a man want than a cabinet seat in the U.S. government? New York, obviously, is to serve as a sprin,gboavd for his long-range plans. New York `has produced more presidelts, presiden- tial rominees and presidential aspirants than perhaps ,any otlmr state. Bobby kn.ows where the gravy is and he isn't wasting any time getting a spoon full of it. The late president once remarked that "if anything happens to me Bobby will take up the mantle where I left off." It certainly appears he is bent on doing just this. With two Kennedys in the next Congress, if this is to be, the ever-growing Rberal wing of the nation,l legislature will have gained one more foot hold. If Bobby gets his latest whim and is eleCt- ed, there may be no stppng this family. Peter ,and Pat Lawfard, who are now firing in New York, may decide to represent Califor- nia. lse, who has been junketing in Europe, may take over Joe's old job as a, mhassador to England. Jackie could do the same in France . . . and maybe Caroline can be our now spokesman in the United Nations. Don't laugh, because it may not be s ridi- culous ,as it seems. Let Them Be Armed It won't be long now until the sctml bells figuratively, if not "flways literally--rir, g again. And millions o.f youngsters, some ea- ger, some with hgging feet, will resume their educations after summers which one hopes were filled with events and adven- tures that will be long remembered. In recent years, there ,has been vast lit- erature on the subject ,of American educa- tion. R has been compared, favorably and unfavorably, with that of other natiens, not- ably England and Russia Each of these dif- feaing systens, it seems, has its own particu- hr goals and prin, ciples, and each ,has its advantages rand disadvantages. But, here at home, there is a strong and growing feeling that American education in all its levels too often leaves out an essential. That essential is the inculca'Uon of a real lvnowledge of what free and representative governTmnt stands for and requires of its citizens and, with that, a ralization of what this means in every facet of life--business, the proes- sions, the arts and crafts. Our young people are growing up into a worm torn with bitterly (p,posed ideologies. In this, the battle for men's minds is all im- portant. Its outcome will determine what the world of tomorrow is to be. Let those young people be ,armed with the truths they will need. Creeping Socialism No Longer Creeps "Creepin*g Socialism," as they used  call it, is no longer creeping. As ,a matter of fact, it seems to be leaping at us f,rn all direc- tions. An ,article appearing in "The Whington Newspaper" this month shows in simpied black 'nd white just how ar Big Govern- ment has gone. It might pay to consider some o these facts, aRd then to conider which Party, and which m,an is trying to at le,at hold this spreading government in,fluence in our fives. For instance: "One out of every 13 working Americans is on he Federal payroll." "One out of every eight factory workers is employed on government work." "One-third of all profes'sional and tech- nical workers is employed on ,government work." "The Atomic Energy Cmmnission owns nfl uses more machine tools than Geneva Motors, Ford and Chrysler cmbine." "Post Office Department vehicles exceed car registrations of seven sates." "The Federal Government owns 800 mll- li,on acres of landone-t 'hrd of the nation and 421,000 buildings." "Purchases of the Air Force in the last three years exceed the total assets of the Perm,syvania Rilroad, U.S. Steel ariel Stand- ard Oil of New Jeey worMwide." If that isn't convincing enough, digest these concluding facts: "With the national deficit running around 'six biIlion dora,s a year,' the Federal Govern- ment is losing money at the rate of $500 millions a moh; $16,666,666 a day, or $694,444 per hour." Needless to say, YOU :are paying for this massive mismanagement. Whether you want to continue this mess is something that will have to be decided at the polls in November." 30 Years Ago 1934 By operating oR the lewest budget in its, ,history Cheney School District 20 has been able to reduce the outstanding general fund warants approx- imately $30,000 ad other funds were ,ao reduced con- siderably. Last year's budget of $33,368.08 was by far the low- est in the , history of te dis- trict. This y eas budget, p- proximatel $59,000, s a trR2e higher due to buiMirg and e- quipment upkeep arrcl .hiring ,an additional teacher. The fol- lowing hawe .been enwaged to Otine Visby, at Amber.

Harder against atomic blackmail. This could all be contained in the decision that declared illegal authority given govern- ment to deny American pass- ports for travel abroad by citi- zens who are members of Com- munist organizations. In considering this point, it must first be borne in mind that any American who subscribes to Communism first of alI has no belief n the American sys- tem. lie is committed to the proposition that this nation should be under Communist rule. In addition, it is a pretty sure thing he is also a zealot. With this in mind, it is now well to consider what it means for such communist zealots to have freedom to travel. Potent atomic weapons can now be contained in fairly small packages, perhaps no bigger than a suitcase. There has long existed a be- lief that if a foreign power, you meet certain demands. If not, here is the list of cities that will be destroyed." The entire defense forces of the United States would be powerless to take any action, because everything is designed and geared to intercept and prevent the arrival of atomic weapons being delivered from an outside source. Such a strategy could give the Communists a victory with- out any major military action. Thus, CongressAn 1950, tak- ing the viewpoint that it is dangerous to the security of the nation to have Commun- ists going out and coming into the nation at will, passed the law which permitted control over these native, home grown Communist fanatics. But now the U.S. Supreme Court has stripped this protection from the nation. Of course, some may argue that it is difficult to bring atomic devices into the nation, as obviously such items would hardly pass through customs. On the other hand, no one, even those charged with prevention of smuggling, will say it is impossible for returning trav- elers to smuggle items into this nation, or any other nation. So, with this action by the Supreme Court, who can any longer say that the Trojans were foolish in taking in the ' Greek wooden i such as the Kremlin gang, horse. ) Nations] Federation ot IndvpsndsntNewsSUSlnesI, Conservation CHENEY By Clarence A. Kelley Nearly every community has a water problem. One-rough of the population today is troubled with water shortage, poor water or both. And the prospects are for even more difficulty in the future. Why is this growing con- cern over water? Is :there tess water thn fornerly? Or are we simply using more? According to experts, there is just so much water. Except for negligible amounts newly created or destroyed by chem- ical changes, the earth s water sup ly rlrlains con:s.a,nt. It is understoed that average annual precipitation in the United State,s is about 30 inches. This amounts to about 4,300 bP.lion ffall,ns a day. That is our total water supply. Four Times Average Total streamflow derived from surface runoff ad ground water amounts to about 8.5 inches a year, or ab<mt 1.,200 billion gallons a day. That is the p0tenti'al sstained supply for direct hum, an use. It is more than four times the average daily use now, about two times the predied re- quirements in 1980. While the potential supply of water affter tr'anspimon and eaporatiort remains con-! slant, needs for ,human use pyramid with growing polaU- laffon. Expanding industry and rising standards of 'tiring re- quire more water per person to satisfy the America way of life. Cllected data shows that while United States population d'otbled, total water use, other than for power, increased four fold. By 1960 it was up an- other 59 per cent from 1950. Water needs are expected to more than double again by 1980, while population increas- es 45 per cent. Average daily use far a'll purposes ircreased from 600 gallons per capita in 1900 to 1,100 gallons in 1950 and 1,500 in 1960. By 1980 the courttry will be using 2,300 alons of waer a day or every man, woman and child. Nearly i00 raft,lion people in 'l'ooid protection has brought the United State's have re- the figure down to a fraetion]ceived a! least partial protect- of this rate and could reduce ire inoculation against polo, it to ,near zero---if all children J but outbreaks still o e c u r received the tox,oid, amorrg the unimmunized. Washington Bar Association Every ow and then you hear of some court inw>king its "inheren.t powers." For ex- ample, the other day a court I used these powers to dismiss 1 law suit as "sham, ficticious, and without merit." A court's "inherent power" involves powers which exist even ff not provided for by statute. Tim legislature often cofirms such powers, by ex- panding or limiting them, or by saying how they may be used. The inherent powers of a cou,rt include the power to preserve order, compel obedi- ence to judgments, control its ministerial officers arid others, compel witnesses o attend trials, administer oatt and amend and control its orders. Courts Have Power Every court has inJherent powers proper to it. A court handling wills, for example, was held to have inherent pow- er to order an estate restored after it had been distributed trader a decree later reversed on appea. Among such powers, a court may: By contempt proee,e.ngs protect its dignity and prevent interference with i proper work. Make rule,s of procedure not in conflict with the con- stitution or states. Permit a pauper to se with- cut paying court costs, etc. Call and exa,mine witnesses; control time of taking deposi- tion; appoint an interpreter; order meals, edging, and transportation for jurors. Correct cl,erical errors in its record; set as'de a judgment void on its ace; take steps to en,force a judgment. Appoint employees; create a remedy for a wrong in absence o statutory provision there- for. (This column is written to in- form, not advise. Facts my change the application of the law.)
