Irish Ale Hits Texas Brew Market
Peter Coors, divisional pres-
ident of marketing and admin-
istration for Adolph Coors
Company announced Thursday,
the rollout of George Killian's
Irish Red ale in Texas on June
Coors said the introduction of
George Killian's is a very
exciting move for the brewery.
"Bringing our new Irish Red
ale to Texas is an exciting
experience for us," he said.
"We know the discriminating
beer drinking public here
appreciates and expects super-
ior quality and taste, which
makes this market a great
opportunity for the company."
Killian's, made by Coors at
its Golden. Colo., brewery, was
introduced into a market test in
Wichita. Kansas, Colorado
Springs. Colo, and Santa
Barbara and Monterey. Calif, in
May 1981. It began market
testing in San Francisco in
December 1981. As a result of
the success in the test markets,
an announcement was made in
January that Killian's would be
rolled out into the majority of
the Coors marketing area
Coors has acquired rights to
brew George Killian’s Irish Red
from the Pelforth Brewery in
Lille, France, and G.H. Lett &
Co., located at Enniscorthy,
County Wexford, Ireland. Al-
though it has not brewed its
product since 1956, G.H. Lett &
Co. renewed its brewing license
each year and remains the last
independent brewer in Ireland.
"Killian’s Red is a very
special product-one that we
feel will appeal to beer drinkers
with discriminating taste,”
Coors said. “The unique color
and taste of Killian's Red
distinguish this new super-
premium product from any
other on the market.”
Coors explained that Kill-
ian's Red acquires its red hue
from the malting process which
involves slow-roasting the malt
longer than is normal for
regular beer. The beverage is
considered an ale rather than a
beer because it is fermented at
a higher temperature than
regular beer and has a higher
"Both the Coors family and
the George Killian Lett family
have built reputations for
refusing to compromise excell-
ence in their brewing proce-
dures. Both began brewing in
the 1800 and both families have
remained extremely close to
their companies. In fact,
George's family ceased brew-

Dear West News,
Thank you for the poem
"Just a Little Boy.” I’m glad
you put it on the front page
rather than the sports page. It
may do a lot of good to pass out
copies of it at the games our
youngsters take part in. high
It’s no wonder our young
people are using such foul
language when they hear it all
the time from their elders!
Thank you again.
I also want to thank Jerrel
Bolton for the most beautiful
flag, on earth, the Star
Spangled Banner. It is a
magnificent sight to come to
work in the morning and be
greeted by the friendly wave.
Where else can we come and go
as freely as we do in America.
Americans be proud, I am.
God bless you,
Mrs. Bernard R. Lenart, Sr.

Belmont, Massachusetts — If you are conser-
vative, you have undoubtedly agonized over the
fact that an issue you deemed important was
either ignored bv the news media or relegated to
the back pages of a newspaper Conversely, you
are frequently infuriated when a liberal cause
earns front-page headlines and priceless televi-
sion coverage. A major study has just provided a
solid clue as to why this happens
Journalism Not Objective
S. Robert Lichter of George Washington
University and Stanley Rothman of Smith Col-
lege recently interviewed 240 of the nation’s
most influential journalists and broadcasters.
Those surveyed represent the New York Times,
Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Time,
Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report. NBC,
ABC and CBS. The study, conducted under the
auspices of Columbia University’s Research
Institute on International Change, has led stu-
dents of media influence to wonder aloud
“about journalism’s qualifications as an 'objec-
Some 54 percent of these leading journalists
label themselves as liberals, while only 19 per-
cent consider themselves conservatives. Half
believe that government should guarantee a job
to anyone who wants one, and 68 percent feel
that one of government’s purposes is to close
the gap between rich and poor. In the field of
foreign affairs, a majority believes that the
U.S. has caused poverty in the Third World,
and that our nation’s heavy use of the earth’s
resources is “immoral.” Other attitudes lean
just as heavily to the left.
Lichter and Rothman reported their find-
ings in Public Opinion magazine which con-
cluded of the media heavies profiled in the
study that they arc “out of step with the
The average American tends to discount crit-
icism of the media. If your pet issue gets
pigeonholed, others will comfort you with "it
isn't sensational enough” and that “it won’t sell
newspapers." You immediately begin to worry
that the whole world has gone crazy or, even
worse, that you are the only one who has
flipped. Liberal dominance of the news media
does that to people.
Want an example of sensational news which
is being virtually ignored? Right now, while the
entire nation is being deluged with the horror of
nuclear weapons and the absolute necessity to
disarm with or without the USSR doing like-
wise, one of the greatest news stories of all time
goes begging for attention. Senator William
Armstrong tells it this way:
In the last ten years alone, the United
States and other Western nations have
sold to the Soviet Union and its satellites
more than $50 billion worth of sophisti-
cated technical equipment the Commu-
nists could not produce themselves. This
equipment has been used to produce nu-
clear missiles, tanks and armored cars,
military command and control systems,
spy satellites, and air defense radars. In
addition, the Soviets have been able to
purchase entire factories, designed and
built by Western engineers and financed
in large part by American and Western
European banks. Much of the production
of these factories is devoted to the manu-
facture of military transport, ammuni-
tion, and other logistical items for the
Soviet war machine.
The way to prevent nuclear war becomes
obvious: Stop giving the Soviet Union its capa-
bility to create one. It is a demonstrable fact
that our nation supplies equipment and fund-
ing without which the USSR would be a second-
rate power. If that isn’t sensational news, then
nothing is. We congratulate Senator Armstrong
and a few others for trying to publicize this
sordid story. By the same token, our contempt
for the media liberals who suppress it could
hardly be greater.

The single largest impediment to economic recovery is
the stubbornly high level of interest rates. Nowhere is this
problem more serious than in the housing industry.
High interest rates make monthly payments for houses
far above the reach of most families, particularly those buy-
ing their first home. When existing houses aren’t selling, new
ones aren’t built. The problem is made worse by the high
interest rates that contractors must pay for short-term finan-
cing for construction. These rates affect both the contrac-
tor’s ability to begin new houses and the ultimate price he
All of this means that people who want to purchase new
houses, and ljave income levels that ought to allow them
to do so, can’t. People who need to sell their houses can’t.
But the consequences of this situation go beyond the
problems of those trying to buy or sell houses. The housing
industry has a tremendous impact on the economy as a
whole. Many contruction jobs have been lost, as have jobs
in a whole range of industries that are related.
Appliances, timber, textiles, furniture and building
materials industries are heavily dependent on a healthy home
construction industry. Unemployment in these industries is
high, and likely will not improve substantially until the hous-
ing industry begins to recover.
The Administration has embarked on a sound economic
recovery program. If Congress will act on the program to
cut the size and scope of government, control the size of
the deficit, and generally bring order to the way government
does business, interest rates will come down.
However, in the meantime we need to act to help the
housing industry begin to recover.
The Senate soon will consider legislation to subsidize
mortgage rates temporarily for buyers of newly built homes.
The government would do this by “buying down” the in-
terest rate by four points. For example, if the mortgage in-
terest rate was \5'A percent, the government would buy
down the mortgage to a level of 11 Vi percent. This could
make a difference of hundreds of dollars in the size of the
monthly payment. And it is the monthly payment which
determines whether a family is eligible for a mortgage.
Those who qualify for the subsidy eventually would
repay the money to the government. But this program would
mean that they can purchase a house now. When their finan-
cial situation improves, or when mortgage rates decline, they
will be able to repay the government.
This is a reasonable and prudent manner in which to
speed the economic recovery of the housing industry, related
businesses, and the economy as a whole.
This legislation has been approved in the Banking Com-
mittee and the Appropriations Committee in the Senate, and
I would expect the full Senate to consider it in the near
future. The House has passed similar legislation, with dif-
ferences that would be worked out in a Conference Com-
mittee after Senate passage.
We should not wait any longer to provide some form
of relief to the housing industry, everyone will benefit if we
“on target” all the time
when you concentrate your banking
at this Full Service Bank.
