The propoted five-million-dollar
county road bond program ha* con-
fronted The Leader with some of
the toughest problem* in Jour-
nalism ever faced by any newt*
One of the .toughest stem* in part
from our own Insistence—starting
month* ago—that this program can
be offered to the taxpayers with
prospects for no increase from thn
present over-all county tax rate.
A financial report prepared by
Rauscher, Pierce A Co., one of
the nations'* leading investment
bankers, demonstrates the validity
of our opinion.
At the same time, it has put
us in the position—and we have
been so accused by some readers
—of leaving a "something for
nothing" impression in our report-
ing on the road bond program.
The accusation is entirely untrue,
as anyone who has read our arti-
cles in full will testify, but it still
has been mad* and we have to
recognize the fact and attempt to
We have been very careful to
point out that the road program is
going to cost the taxpayers of
Orange County, over a 30-yesr pe-
riod, the amount of the bond issue
plus 3U to 4 million qb’lars tn

"The rest went for music, soprtd,

The film, "A Run Across the

four-yaar dream and a long uphill
fight for its crew-cut producer who'
look* like an Ivy League college
Instructor. A spy chsse melo-
drama, filmed in semi-documen-

'Roll Call' Defines Common Terms
A little newspaper called "Roll Call” in published by
employes of Congress, and it usually is circulated only
arnon? members and employes on Capitol Hill. Now
and then a copv escapes to layrtts i s hands, however,
and such a wandering copy was fou^d to contain an
article entitled "HiH-ese-a Language Opiates

Scenery and backgrounds were

for interior shots, r
The city of New York loaned
him a subway train and a firt
boat. It also sent two detectives
who questioned him for five hours
because he hadn’t obtained a per-
mit to stage a spectacular rooftop
“We were so short-staffed that
I had to do the makeup and hair-
dressing myself,” said Chambers.

"Wasteful spending” is used by members of Con-
gress as an accurate description of budget spending not
applying to their own particular districts, while "funds
necessary for the operation of government serving 1 <0
million people" rgjer to budget funds to be spent in the
Congressman's own district. , ^
A few other definitions given by Roll Call include:
“Red tape"—what the number of excess persons you
have hired are all tangled up in. "The forgotten man’’—
anv one of the excess employes who’can’t find anvbody
who can tell him what his job is, “Parity"—a device
approved by politicians for sweetening up the farmers
and wooing, the farm vote. "Surplus”—what piles up
because of parity payments.
"The law of supply and demand"—something nobody
has ever been able to lick. "Income tax"—a device
which makes all men brothers—unhapov brothers.
“War-imposed excise taxes"—a veritable "Old Man of
the Sea” who never gets off your back until the next
war—when his weight is doubled.
Socialized Medicine and Its Ills
The British Medical Journal recently carried this
significant statement: “We have had amply demonstra-
te! to us that medicine and politics do not mix." Brit-
ain has had socialized medicine for many years, and
Iter National Health Service employes something like
99 per cent of all British doctors.
The service’s current troubles have been much in
the news lately. The most publicized issue has been
doctors’ pay V. . by any reasonable standard, it is low
and the government so far has refused to make ade-
quate adjustments. But there is more to the matter than
this economic factor. ' .
As the Journal puts it: "The employes have lost all
trust and confidence in theii- monopoly employer.” As
evidence, it cites the fact that in recent months there
has been a striking increase in their number of doctors
investigating the possibility of leaving England for one
of the Domjpioni. \ , ^
What are the troubles, other than the saUry prob-
lem, that socialized medicine has brought to Britain’s
doctors? The article points out: “The pettifogging argu-
ments about whether a food is a drug, the form-filling,
the regulations, earnest discussions on whether a
week’s leave not taken one year can be carried on to
the next, the ever-increasing intrusion of the adminis-
trator both centrally and locally—all this and much
more is turnihg medicine into sn administrator’s
Then the Journal makes the most ominous statement
of all: "The unfortunate doctor soon loses his sense of
direction and will end up by loaing his sense of profes-
Measures are periodically proposed in this country
which would give the government sweeping and varied
controls over the doctors and medical practice, and thus
set the stage for ultimate socialized medicine.
We can profit by Britain’s costly example . , . and
•void such schemes like the^ plague.
