For instance, the CAB accuses him of operating a flying sleigh without certification, violating the Civil Aeronautics Act of 1938. He has a monopoly on air mail delivery of toys. 'He competes. with the postal service which can't stand competition'. He violates the .Fair Labor • Standard aCt by failing to pay his elves the minimum wage. 'Better have them unemployed and on welfare than to have them paid less than a govern- men set minimum wage'. He violates EPA standards -- he has no emission control on his reindeer. He violates OSHA regulations. 'His elves are 7 inches tall; OSHA requires a guard rail 36 inches high'. He passes out candy canes not approved by FDA, 'A Canadian rat ate 968 dozen candy canes a day for 178,e months and developed bladder cancer. To protect that rat children can't have candy canes'. He ignored the orders of the Equap Employment Op- pertunity Commission and the Civil Rights Act of t964 and did not have a quota system based on your know what. 'He won't set up an affirmative action program to hire a black female giant with Chinese ancestors and a Spanish surname'. He gave toys not approved by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. 'Despite a costly federal study about children falling off them, he gave a tricycle to a child ! ! ! !' He didn't declare as income the cookies and milk children put out for him.

Is it only the children who will be affected by the crackdown? Is Santa the only one who loses freedom, because of .the regulations proclaimed by the appointed heads of over 300 federal bureaucracies? You know, of course, that he is not. Their regules and regulations penetrate every part of our lives and each one takes a little of our freedom from us. It's not only bussinessmen who are affected by OSHA -- em- ployees are affected when an OSHA regulation shuts down the place where they work. Everyone is affected when industry is forced to use more energy to meet pollution control requirements - and by the Federal Water Control Act, and by the EPA ukase called the "Levels Document" and on and on. Under the pretense of giving humans a clean, quiet, unspoiled environment, federal agencies and bureaus and armies of environmentalists in and out of government are promoting anti- human regulations that block all progress and development. And they will continue to do so until they have complete control of every facet of your life -- unless you stop them. Lela Gardner • C.W. Theatre Charles Town.
