Page Four THE MA/,A.KOFF NEWS Friday, November 6, 1964 Malakoff, Texas ,By GEORGE S. BEN'SON THAT CLOWN, MOISE TSHOMBE One of the tangled political situations in which the U. S. is becoming deeper involved is the increasingly serious Congo affair, in which past mistakes still haunt us. Whether there are to develop other involvements such as this may depend upon the strength Washington is now willing to show, the statesmanship to act to forestall such gathering storms, and the will to declare ourselves on the side of right and freedom. It might also be helpful if Adlai Stevenson could be persuaded to call off his crusade against the remnants of colonialism and wait awhile for more nations to emerge. In 1960, when Belgium liberat- ed the C on g o, the Congolese army ran wild and political tur- moil set in. There was something of a dispute as to whether a strong federal government or a federation would work best. The Congolese, however, were not left alone to work out their problems. Moise Tshombe, leader of Ka- tanga and one of the most cap- able African figures, vcould prob- ably have united the Congo long before 1964 had not the left-lean- ing elements prevailed upon the U. N. to send their blue helment- ed troops to crush Mr. Tshombe. A Leader Returns Tshombe h ad demonstrated great skill and administrative ability in running Katanga prov- ince. His government had shown marked stability and was not about to be engulfed in the fierce passions of black nationalism. He was adamant when dealing with left-wing extremists. W i t h o u t doubt, it was his stance of anti- Communism that got him into trouble with liberal elements in Africa and the U. N as well as his broadminded recognition of the importance of the European capitalist influences that had meant so much in developing the resources of his country. In one of the most ironic turn- abouts yet seen in the world struggle for freedom, Mr. Tsh- ombe, once exiled by the U. N his country torn apart by U. N. force and sabotaged by political troubleshooters, has returned to become premier of the Congo. Whose Policies? One major flaw in our U. N. ties is a tendency toward weak- BRING YOUR LAUNDRY TO US When You Bring Your Dry Cleaning WE REPRESENT THE ATHENS LAUNDRY PICK UP DAYS ARE MONDAYS AND THURSDAYS YOU CAN PICK IT UP AGAIN AT OUR SHOP DRY Cleaning INSURANCE IS ONE THING COVERAGE ANOTHER Improvements and the rise in mar- ket value may have "upped" the valuation of your home . . . above the coverage afforded by your pres- ent ~e insurance policy.

N. to carry out elements of foreign policy which are neither understood nor approved by the people of this nation. If anti- Communism could be policed in the Congo by the U. N. through military campaigns and economic sanctions, why not in other places in the world? There was another irony, in that the Congress scur- ried about, on the demand of President Kennedy, to provide borrowed money for the U. N. campaign. And to this day, Khrushchev refuses to pay for any of the Congo expedition. Mr. Tshombe is now trying to reconcile the various elements in his country into a modern repub- lic. The Congolese army is learn- ing discipline, and with the help of some of his neighbors is slow- ly winning against rebels backed by the Chinese Reds. The Peking representativves station them- selves in adjoining countries, pro- vide arms, stir up the rebel chiefs, and promise power to col- laborators. Tshombe needs help, and he is not getting it very well from his leftist neighbors. Let us not wait for Algeria's Ben Bella (Africa's Castro) to "help" Mr. Tshombe. The Bight Kind of Help Official Washington, including G. Mermen Williams, Assistant i Secretary of State for African Af- fairs, doesn't want to get more in- volved in the Congo. One won- ders whether the reluctance to send Tshombe more help is going to crate another Viet-nam type of: situation. "Increased involve- ment," as they calI it, is disturb- ing some Congressional leaders. One wonders whether interest is less than it might otherwise be if Tshombe were a leftwise social- ist, rather than the unreconciled foe of Communists he has shown himself to be. Our stake in the Congo is al- ready large. More than half the bill for the U. N. expedition was paid by the U. S. Other mil- itary and economic aid directly to the Congo has been costly. Transport planes and other air- craft are being sent in. Expenditures for the Congo has averaged more than $100 million for each of the past four years. They are likely to go up. Never- theless, we need not think that our money will save the Congo. Our thinking will have to match our money. We were wrong be- fore and we shall be wrong again if our ]eftwingers start try- ing to neutralize the Congo. This would be goodbye freedom for the Congo, and the Congo for freedom's cause. TEX MAN SAM SEZ: When Junior says he is a double income tax exemption, it comes as a surprise to thou- sands of Dads each year. Dads have had ten years since the law was changed in 1954 to learn about the student exemption-- but they haven't. The student must claim his own exemption on his own re- turn. If he is under 18 or a full time student and is receiving principal support from Dad, he can be claimed on Dad's return too. However, the mixup continues. A lot of Dads send word to the teacher teaching the little IRS tax course at school that they are teaching the course all wrong. Dad tells the teacher that you can't "double dip." Well, Dad, in this case Junior gets an exemp- tion and you also get an exemp- tion.

Tex.[ ties, States and the nation, i~==~=~=~=~==~=~ culture, Percy R. Millard, direc- tor of the regional office of the U. S. Bm-eau of the Census at Dallas, announced today. T h e new crew leader is one of about 1,825 persons throughout the U. S. to receive this appointment. The new crew leader will supervise a team of census enum- erators who will visit all farms and ranches in Henderson Coun- ty to collect official census ques- tionnaires from farm operators. Enumeration of all farms in the county will take place in No- vember and early December. The census will be taken in the following way: Shortley af- ter November 5, the Bureau of the Census, an agency of (he U. S. Department of Commerce, will mail census questionnaires to all rural boxholders. Those required to fill out the forms should do so and hold the ques- tionnaires until a census enum- erator comes to collect them. At that time,* the enumerator will help answer any question that may have proved troublesome. The crew leader is a key per- son in conducting a Census of Agriculture. He recruits and trains the enumerators, schedules the~ work, reviews the accuracy of completed forms, and con- ducts difficult interviews. The Census of Agriculture is taken every five years in years ending in "4" and "9" to gather information on the nation's agri- cultural resources and produc-~ tion. Such information is vital in making decisions affecting many segments of the U. S. economy. Data gathered include the number and size of farms, acreage and harvest of crops, "A lecture can make you feel numb at one end and dumb at the other." tha Ask any nomemaker who cooks the flameless electric way about its advantages and she's sure to mention cleanliness.
