EDITOR [HE BOX State Republicans have a big reason for smiles this week, even in the face of national calamity for their Party. Fi:fth District Dem- ocrats, and others who helped, also have an added reason for post-eieetion gratification. Daniel J. Evans, of course, is the one bright spot on the fading Republican :political hor- izon. His stunning victory over At, bert D. Rose:l, Bni's quest for 12 years in Olympia was a matter of good sense. Evans will be the first to admit that Democrats and Independ- ent voters pushed ",hem over the top. Here is a man who apparently means busi- ness. During his vigorous 18-month cam- paign, which included a major address in dowrttx>wn Oheney, he mixed very little "po- .litical s-miles" in 'his somber messages to the people. At one time he remarked that, al- though smiling had never been one of his greatest attributes, he .didn't really think there was much to smile ,about Roseni's selfish desire for a third term. Apparently, his message made an impact. Washingto certainly can use fresh and vigorous new leadership in Olympia. Daniel J. Evans now has his chance, and the people of this state have renewed coffidence in their state government. The other upset (if Evans' win can be called an upset) is Thomas S. Foley's win over the long-time incumbent, Walt Horan. Foley's win was the result of ability, work and sincerity. His opponent, accustomed to returring to WaShington without much difficulty, met an energetic young man who apparently con- vinced Republicans and Democrats in this district with his intelligence, objectivity and sincerity. Foley will be remembered in Cheney from his downtown visit here a few weeks ago on a handshaking trip. At 35, Foley has a bright political future in store, and we feel sure he will represen all o4 the Fifth Dis- trict, instead of representing special inter- ests. No .one, to be sure, should feel too sorry for Mr. Horan. He has served with dignity and honor in his long stay in Washingto, but he apparently failed to realize that a public mandate, plus an outstanding yatmg opponent, indicated that it was time for a charge. Someday, perhaps, politicians will retire Ever since the U.S. State Dept. has been permitted to play an increasingly dominant role in setting U.S. tariffs, as- tute foreign businessmer chuckle up their sleeves at the crazy Americans, then proceed to enjoy a field day. * #$ * In c r easing :: imports of abrics made from the syn-i thetic yarns i have been damaging the @ interests of the huge do- mestic corn- il  plexes en-  gaged i n llll their manu- C.W. Harder facture, with the result that pressure was brought on the Congress to plug loopholes. The chief loophole closed was that of imposing tariffs on synthetic fabrics which contain some vegetable fiber. The foreign mills had been undercutting American producers by taking advantage" of a clause which put a lower duty on such fab- rics with Vegetable fibers. Of course, as always when a tariff increase is proposed to protect American business and labor, the State Dept. objected, but there was enough pressure to get the Congress to act But in the confusion engendered by the wheeling and dealing to get this legislation through, an oversight was made damaging American wool growers and textile mills. * * * In the new Tariff Act as passed last September, it is provided that the duty on wool and vegetable fiber fabric, in which the value of the vege- table fiber is higher than the value of the wool, the duty is only 10% ad valorem. Under National Federation of Independent Business the old law it was provided tha in fabrics containing over 17% wool, the duty was 60% ad val- orem on the wool content, plus 37c per pound of wool, with the 10% ad valorem duty on the fiber content. Italians do not succeed in business without trying. They developed a flannc: made of 75% wool and 25% ramie fiber. Ramie fiber, a vegetable product, is an expen- sive fiber, and for the wool con- tent they are using reprocessed wool. Inasmuch as the value of the fiber is more than the value of the reprocessed wool, under the new tariff act, it pays only a 10% duty. Although the fabric has 25% vegetable fiber content, experts say it is practically indistin- guishable from all-wool cloth. Since last March over a million yards have been imported. If the material were charged the duty that it would be as- sessed by U.S. Customs except !for this legal loophole, it could not compete with American made nil-wool cloth. Obviously, no businessmen advised the Congress on the ruinous provisions of the new Tariff Act, which is just anoth- er strong argument why State Dept. activities should be con- fined to attendance at tea par- ties, but when it comes to com- mercial and business activity, government should have busi- nessmen calling the shots. For in %he long run, if for- eigners, as in this case, find Americans are pretty stupid in business they are naturally led to conclude they must be stupid in all other matters. themselves, instead of wistfully seeking a amends urder tribal taw, and I ways in the layout of 5,564 feet the tribe closed his case.
