N TA -- CHICAGO "- DETROIT -- Los ANGELES ALL SUBSCRIPTIONE DELIVERED IN THE STATE ARE SUBJECT TO 3~ CONSUMERS. SALES TAX. SUBIJCR|PTION S3•SO PER YEAR IN ADVANCE. MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL EDITORIAL Thursday, March 16, 1961 SPRING CLEAN-UP Spring is an ideal time to go through your place with firm resolve to get rid of everything you c[on't want, can't use or shouldn't have. And this applies to town, city and county officials just as much as it does to individuals. It doesn't take too much effort to clean up spots that are ugly. And we believe more of us would do so except for the fact that we are inclined to get use to unsightly con- ditions that appear ugly to one who sees tfiem for the first time. This is the reason so many of us hurry and clean up if we know company is coming. Let's say that Spring is the best time to prepare for the inspection ,that is bound to be made shortly by the penetrating rays of the sun. Look around. See what needs to be done. DO IT!

Slightly more than 100 District with her pastor, the Rev. Carlyle are not as easily discernable as they are to other segments of the economy is because, being indir- :ct, we do not regard them as sub i sidies. Under the Madison Ave- nue technique these subsidies .rove other names and run under such disguises as "government contracts" and "special tax bene- fits" and a host of other more ac- ceptable titles. So that in the lex 4con of most of us the word "sub sidy" is a term for. such govern- ment assistance as we do not like, while assistance that we like mas querades under a different title. This is not to suggest that sub sidles to business are bad and subsidies to farmers are good or profits if all their defense con- tracts with the government were cancelled? No one is suggesting that they should be cancelled, al though one can speculate just a little bit on just how much less these contracts might cost the government if the salary scales of the top executives in these or- ganizations were more in confor mity with reality. So in the future when we hear people talk about subsidies let's make sure we know what they are talking about, and let's make sure they know what they are talking about. For the plain truth of the matter is that in one way or another virtually all of us are receiving subsidies.
