FROST .................................. PUBLISHER EDITORIAL A C TIN Crime and the Welfare State Is ,there a dtinct and recognizable con- necon btwe.en the soaring crime rate and the development of a welfare state? If tlat seems a queer an, d idle question, a paragraph written by Kea, ts A. Pullen, Jr., tlat appeared in The lalitmore Sun may cause you to d,o a bit o{ thinkinlg. He says: "It is e,asy to understand why crime rises precipitously in a s(ciatst weHare state. Under socialism the state, in accord with its own ,arbitrary standards, rewards individuals for aHevia.tion of poverty. Under crime the individual, in accord with his own stan@ards, attempts to reward himsel for simihr pur- pose. In both instances, old-fahioned stand- ,ard!s of morality axe buried in a morass of gimme." This is a harsh judgment but there is muh eviderme to substantiate it. The wel- fare state, wlatever else one may think of it, cannot help but undermine and even de- ,roy the aaaeient values Which hve sus- tained civ'..d2mti(mindependene, a sense of personal responsibility, individuM pride, honesty, and a determirmtion to take care of onesetf and one's family. Crime -- like all the other immoralities, to use that woad in the broadest possible serrse -- will flourish when these values are degraded. Justice Deterent To Crime FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover writes: "Ex- perience shos that swift and impartial jus- tice is one of the most effective deterents to crime. Yet, swift justice, with all the tech- nical loopholes and unwarranted dehys in the law, is almost passes in several juris- dictions, and the rights of peaceful citizens are taking a terrific beating from the "impar- tial justice' meted ot in some courts. Crime cauusations are mary and varied. Few, bow- ever, are more serious Ova,n misguided lem iencies, including a4buses of parole, probation, and suspended sentences. A young bnk rob- her recently blamed such lemeney for his ttrrn to serious crime." Federal Aid Expensive President Gerh, olz of the Chamber of C)m- merce of the United States holds that there is n'o need "to put our cities in uniform" by enli.sting in a fede.ral program of community development when the job could be done fas,t:r and better through private investmen and initiative. Federal aid, he added, caaan)t help b.ut inhibit the free phy ,of imaginatioaa, origir, ality and inn,ovation withi'n the com- munity. Back Door Tax Boosting It makes no difference whether you .are labeled a Republ4can or a Dem,oerat, a liberal or a conser-ave, a rich man or a poor man, a college student o,r a drop-out, a poverty man era welfare man, we all pay taxes either direct or in lhe price of 'rent, feed, com- modities ,or se.rvices. The more we ask from goveramert, the higher go the riving costs. Harry F. Byrd, the illustrious democwatic Senator from V,irginia, .has 19rig been the of the federal treasury. He has sougkt to e}pose the folly of establishing bureaus without limitafinv. Once estab "DiShed, they grow and grow and the people pay in taxe. The Senator cites one of the newer ed- oral bureaus that has increased its epen- dtures over 300 per cent in the past 13 years --from some $2 bi,liil.on to over $7 billi'on. Songster Byrd poirts out that if one of the proposed new burea:us expands proportion- ately, if it should be established, it would be a $225 billion departmen by fiscal 1978. The people never get to vote on such a propositio,n All the big spending measures are preseated as something beneficial to the peo,ple. Cost is soft pedaled and new bureaus are born. From then on they are permanent ad all the people can do is pay and pay and pay in taxes or in the cost of products or ser- vices of which taxes are a part of the price. The same policy folloavs from Congress down I through state legislatures. } Who,never bureaucracy increases, the sup-I posed .beneficiaries, the people, get the,,bil!;[ lhe ,only recourse they have is to say No when they vote and sto9 begging" pblic[ funds.

Kelley SCS Technician Nine new cooperative agree- ments have been accepted by the Southwest Spokane Soil & Water Conservation District board of supervisors during the month of AugusL 2hose agreements signed and accept- ed were with Bob Cooper, Spo- kane; Era, est Cramer, Espan- ola; John Bauer, Spangle; James Slavin, Spokane; Car- roll Presta, Windsor; Ceate Suksdorf, Spangle; and Carl and Rap.h I-Iofmann, Plaza. The land total involved under the new agreements amo,un,ted to 2554 acres. These new agreements brougl  district total num- ber to 44  covering 243,108 cres of land. This is 57 per cent of the 430,640 total acre- age in the SWCD. Being a cooperaor with the SWCD entitles any farmer or ranhey to receive conserva- tion informatiort atd tech,ni- val ,assistance tailored to the needs ,of his own .land. With such assistarce a cooperator can develop acom, plete soil nd water conservatkm plan including soil rd land'apa- bi,ty maps, range and wood- land site and condition sur- ;veys, and tared use mags fit- I ted to his on decisions and pro- gram. The main objective ef all local governed soil conse.rv- tion districts is to 'have a com- plete soil and water conserva- tion program n effect on every farm or ranch within its bun- daries.

Moody Jones, a peaceful and re- spected young fmily man, took a taxi lmme on evening after working late. Once ome, he tried to pay his $2 taxi fare with a $20 bill. Having no change, the angry driver de- manded that J.or, es go some blocks away with him to a store for change. "All right," said Jones, "but I won't py for the extra trip." The driver added the trip to Jones' bill anyhow, and ones stood firm. The driver made a "citizen's arrest" ,on the spot. He then called the police. Police fin- gerprirted, photographed and placed Jones' name on the arrest btotter, chargirN him with the mirror crime of refus- ing to pay his fare At trial the cab driver filed to appear, and the Judge tossed the case out. In his turn, Jones sued the driver and his cab company and won a small award for false imprisonment. But Jones still had  griev- ance: Each time he seeks a job, puts in for a promotion or flHs out some question- naire, somebody asks: "Have you ever been arrested?" And Jones has to expl,ain. So Jones asked the police to take his name out of the department file and remove his record. I When the police refused to do I so, he sued. But the court .held that the police could keep such records. An accused per- son's fingerprints and photo- graphs are a proper way to identify him, and need n't be returned to the accused, how- ever'inxmcent. However, it may be unwise to seek to have rc- ords of arrest destroyed. Employment and other sim- ilar questionnaires will always ask the question in such a way that the question must be ans- wered "yes" even though the arrest records have subse- quently been destroyed. The lack of records may create doubt as to how serious the en- counter with the officiaJs was Full and accurate reporting, on the other hand, does give to the innocent person a basis for explaining the circumslan- ces o.f the arrest, and the of- ficial record will verify the fact that no prosecution or conviction followed (This column is written to inform, not advise.
