# AID TO SELF-HELP
There are always two sides to a
coin. There are two sides, too, to the
task of helping the American Negro
take his place as an economically val- !
uale and socially advanced member of
the society in which, through neither
fault nor merit of his own, he finds
himself.
One side is the removal of barriers
to Negro opportunity, the other the
Negro’s seizure of the opportunities
he has. One of the barriers has been

Welcome To The North Santiam
Mill City and surrounding community received news
this week that can only mean better things for this area.
The huge new expansion of M & M’s Woodworking plant
near Lyons is welcome news indeed. When good jobs
for 400 men are provided in a community, that commu­
nity benefits greatly.
Mill City and its neighboring cities have enjoyed a
steady growth since the termination of World War II.
Predictions that Mill City would become a ghost town
when Detroit and Big Cliff dams were completed have
proved unfounded.
The increased electrical power made possible by
these two dams is a definite force in attracting industries
such as M & M’s new plywood plant. The North San­
tiam Chamber of Commerce has not hesitated in its
efforts for obtaining more industry for this region.
Whether the present expansion of M & M can be laid at
the door-step of the Canyon chamber we do not know.
Certainly those active in the North Santiam Chamber of
Commerce have played an important role in encouraging
M & M to settle here.
We welcome M & M’s new plant in our canyon and
applaud their vision in coming here and joining early our
strong and up-and-coming region.
Editorial Comments
WAS EISENHOWER SINCERE?
Last September 25, Geneial Eisen­
hower said in Frederick, Md.: “The
loyal, efficient federal employe, no
matter where he is working, has
nothing to fear from me.”
On October 28, the general, speak­
ing over a television network from
New York City, said: "Efficient civil
servants have absolutely nothing to
fear from this crusade that is coming
in to clean out Washington.”
And on October 30, in a statement
to the Washington Post, Eisenhower
said: "There will be no indiscriminate
firings of civilian employes.”
It is a little hard to reconcile those
campaign promises with the current
wave of firings of career civil service
employes in non-political jobs.
Among those who have been, or are
being, discharged, are such eminent
and veteran government workers as
the director of the National Bureau
of Standards, the director of the Bu­ I
reau of Land Management, the di­
rector of the Fish ami Wildlife Serv­ I
ice, the veteran administrator of So­ I
cial Security, Arthur Altmeyer; the
May 21, 1953
administrator of the Rural Electrifica­
tion Administration, and the director
of the Federal Mediation and Con­
ciliation Service. All of these gentle­
men held non-political posts requiring
wide background, expert knowledge
and intelligent administration.
It is up to President Eisenhower to
admonish the new "team” in Wash­
ington to play the game according to
the rules which he himself laid down.

FOR A SPECIAL INTEREST
Perhaps there is no direct relation
between the moves to give states con-
tiol of off-shore lands and the one
to turn grazing permits on the na­
tional forests into legal property
rights for the benefit of a few live­
stock operators. But the simultane­
ous appearance of these two pieces of
legislation (with reports of others
slated to come up) should aleit the
citizenry to defense of the national
assets that can only be preserved and
developed for the general benefit un-
der government control.

From where I sit... //Joe Marsh
PTA Gets Stung by a "Bee"
The local PTA is feeling sheep­
ish today. Seems they complained
the youngsters weren’t learning
enough. Said they couldn't even
spell. So the kids challenged them
to a spelling bee.
“I was captain of the PTA’ers,”
“Doc” Brown told me. “Both
teams made the first round just
fine. But on the second round
Speedy Taylor went down on
‘efficiency.’ Then his boy Chip,
who happened to be next on the
school team, rattled it right off.
From then on it was murder!”
So now “Doc” says that the
whole PTA is thinking of sign­
ing up for night school!
From where I sit, it always
pays to look and think before you
leap to conclusions. Take those
folks who would deny me a tem­
perate glass of beer without a
moment's thought. They wouldn't
want me to interfere with their
personal preferences for, say. but­
termilk. It's a good idea to think
twice before you “spell out" rules
for your neighbor.
