According to the company's engineers, the celluloid, spheres help trap noxious fumes which otherwise might escape. Another steel firm directs cleansed waste gas from steelmaking operations through chambers packed with two million marbles. Water flowing through the marbles cools the gas before it's released into the atmosphere. j.

JUNE 23, 1971 10c per copy; $4,50 per year by Mail; 56.00 Outside County The Minimum Wage Considerable pressure is being exerted on Congress to increase the minimum wage right now to $2 an hour, rather than wait until 1S-73 as proposed i# a house bill. The proponents contend that the increase would give the economy a lift by creating additional spending power. This is fallacious reasoning. OVUinimum-wage jobs are given to those who lack the experience or know-how to step into higher wage brackets. They are the first step in the ladder. By removing this bottom rung, not only will many of these jobs be eliminated, but all wages will be pushed up so that inflationary price increases soon would blunt any benefits from the increase. When you add these factors to the increased difficulty that employers wiH have with lower-wage competitors overseas, it seems likely that a higher minimum wage will do more harm than good to those it is intended to benefit. How Much For Defense? ; The debate over the new defense budget is in -full swing. Thus far the discussion has taken some interesting twists. The administration, through Defense Secretary Melvin Laird, has moved away from consideration of Vietnam as being of primary importance in the defense budget. Instead it is focusing on the long-range security needs of the United States. Referring to the 1970's, Laird;»fras sp^eh of .he "defeiisle Resources' needed, in order to meet this Soviet threat during this; period of time."' ' The emphasis, in short, has. moved away from intense preoccupation with Southeast Asia and the fighting in Vietnam, and toward more general concerns. The administration warns that, in order to meet the Soviet threat, defense costs must increase— this despite the steady withdrawal of troops from Vietnam, and regardless of what has been said in the past about the expectation that reduced involvement in Vietnam would bring reduced defense expenditures. Sen. Wilriam Proxmire of Wisconsin is spearheading quite a different point of view. He is arguing for a leaner and stronger—a "far less costly, more efficient"—military force. Apparently he does hot perceive the Soviet threat to be as great as Laird insists it is, for he is asking a cut of six to eight billion dollars in the proposed 76-billion-dollar 1972, defense budget. The plain fact is that the administration can no longer rely on the Vietnam arguments to bolster demands for more defense money. Laird has already reverted to earlier Cold War arguments concerning the .Soviet threat. He may find it quite difficult to sustain these arguments, however, for times have changed and this threat seems by no means as great or imminent as it once seemed. Laird is aware of this. In his press conference warning of the proposed increase in military spending he took up a kind of secondary position, falling back upon the argument that the American people do hot want to become a "second rate power.' He declared that "they are unwilling to accept inferiority in this particular area." A backward glance helps put such ideas in perspective. It was just such arguments—'about Soviet and Chinese threats, about America's "losing," about America being second rate vis a vis North Vietnam, • about America being "pushed around"—that were crucial in originally involving our country in the Vietnamese War. Americans should be skeptical of ' the "Soviet threat" and "inferiority" arguments. We must not let such arguments stampede us into spending far more than is reasonably required to assure the nalSpn's security. •■ Public Library Closed Saturdays Thru September The North Canton Public Library will be closed Saturdays through Sept. 4.
