4- The Sidney Herald, Sidney, Monf., Wed,, Feb. 7, 1973 A Protected Eagle A mature male Golden Eagle is receiving some special protection here from Guy Shanks, District 6 Game Warden. Shanks found this bird almost starved to death after it had been vounded by a .22 cal. bullet. It will never use its left talon again according to the warden. The photos above and at left were shot with a Yashica - Mat 120 camera with Tri-X film by Don Mrachek. He used a shutter speed of 1- 250th of a second and shot it at f-ll using a fill flash. The film was developed in HC-110 for five minutes. Eagles are protected by the federal government. i Writer's Gallery By Mark Gram Innocent?

Happy Valentines! The above Valentine erse may sound a little ridiculous, but so was the situation between Sidney and Fairview Saturday evening with an average of one highway patrolman every 2.8 miles. The crew of patrolmen was evidently part of Top Cop Woodahl's roving safety gang. Even a ,J good driver could become jumpy with a patrolman hiding behind every bush along the road. Maybe it was just a coincidence that they happened to plan their evening vigilance of motorists on exactly the same night as Fair- view's annual Feeder Tour. - On the way to Fairview there were three sets of beady eyes peering from white radar scanners called patrol cars. On the return trip a fourth :!d unit had joined the attack on motorists.  The Sidney Police Department has added a new trick to its radar surveillance.

BOOTH Execuhve Vice PresiderH Chamber of Commerce of the United States Arc you willing to help the unions pay the cost of their strikes'? Did you know that you and all other taxpay- ers--are already doing iust that'? Increasingly, the unions are turning to various forms of public welfare assistance to support their strikes. It ts estimated that about $25 million m public welfare was distributed to strikers during the General Electric strike_of 1969-70. Strikers against General Motors in 19170 received 530 million m public funds. So strong ts this trend that if it continues, we may be subsidizing the unns to the tune of over $300 million a year in the near future. How did it happen? Well. the problem is that when most of the existmg welfare statutes were drafted no one cvcn considered the possibility that such aid would bc sought by strikers. So. the use of public money to support a strikewas not specifically pro- But it must bc halted. Strikes are an economic contest. Each side is working for its own benefit, not for the benefit of the general public. It is the cost of the strike to each side that forces or should force a reasonable compromise and keep the dispute as short as possible. owever. if the unions can draw upon public funds then there is no pressure for them to agree to a reasonable, fair settlement. They know that they can hold out much longer than management. And so does management. Under those circum- stances, management can hardly be blamed for giving in and granting the union demands, no matter how expensive or unreasonable. If you know you're going to lose anyway, why endure the expense of a fight? When management capitulates too easily, it is really the public that loses. A wage increase that is not earned by a corresponding increase in productivity leads to a price increase. Many pcpie do not understand the need for this, but it is easy to see if you look at the way corporate income is distributed. After deducting the inescapable costs of operationsupplies, raw materials, debt service, etc.--and taxes, the remaining corporate earnings are divided in this fashion: Nine percent to the owners (stockholders) and 91% to the work- forcein wages and salaries. Without a price increase, the costs of a wage in- of a raise. So, that brings us back to a price increase. And more inflation. hen there's the question of morality. The unions argue that their members pay taxes to help sup- port the welfare programs, and are therefore entitled to receive benefits when they are out of work, There are two things wrong with this argument. Firs t , the welfare aid is supposed to help those who cannot work. The striker could work, but chooses not to because he expects to gain in the long run from his temporary and voluntary unemployment. Second, we all pay taxes to help support the welfare programs- individuals and corporations alike--and it is hardly fair that the money should be used for the economiC gain of one particular group. A thorough, well-documented study of the issue was undertaken at the University of Pennsylvania by Dr. Armand J. Thieblot, Jr., and Ronald M. Cowin. Their conclusions are worth noting: Organized labor's relative bargaining power be- fore public support was certainly great enough to be influential. The additional power which $329 milfion per year in direct benefits can buy may well upset the relative bargaining positions of unions and managements so greatly that the fundamental structure of collective bargaining will be seriously threatened. The general public must pay the costs, not only directly through higher taxes and higher prices, but also indirectly through greater disrup- ........... hibited. The umons soon noticed this loophole and crease must come out of (a) an increase in produc- tion to the economic system and through inflation. e { MONTANA It2/ " began to take advantage of it.
