2- The Sidney Herald, Sidney, Mont., Wednesday, May 19, 1971 i R =Opin ons= ,:!:! OUR IOUBLE STANDARD ON DESPOTISM Every school child has been taught about the Nazi persecution of the Jews. Even small children can quote the figure of six million Jews killed by Hitler. What they seldom hear about is the more than 30 million people who were killed in the Soviet Union by Communism, or the comparable lives taken by Red regimes in the past few decades in Mainland China, North Korea, North Vietnam and Cuba. What is even more to the point, yet what they are very rarely told, is that these jailings and killings are still going on in Communist countries. Most children are familiar with the sad stories of Auschwitz and Dachau. Few if any have heard of such similar places as Kilyma in the Soviet Union. The name of such notorious Communist butchers as Yezhov should be as familiar to us as Himmler. Yet even our university students have not heard of Kolyma or Yezhov. The information is readily available. Books like Eugene Lyons' Workers Paradise Lost (Twin Circle, 1969) or. Dr. Robert Conquest's The Great Terror (Macmillan 1968) clearly tell the story. ]'hey also point out the very pertinent fact that, unlike modern Germany, the leaders of the Soviet Union today were close collaborators with Stalin and are still carrying on his murderous methods. Radio announcers in New York City and elsewhere continue to refer to leaders of such countries as Spain as "dictator Franc." The same announcers never say "dic- tator Kosygin" They do not even refer to Mao Tse-tung as "dictator Mao." It is all part of the dishonest double standard practiced by modern liberals, who continue to see some good in Communism, no matter how much brutality it practices. SENSITIVITY TRAINING "HARMLESS AT BEST" Sensitivity training is "at best harmless and at worst, very dangerous" said Dr. Andree Emery, noted clinical counselor for the Hacker Psychiatric Clinics in Los Angeles "I have never seen any really positive results from sensitivity sessions, and l have seen many negative results where people couldn't take it," she said. "l don't think anyone has the moral right to invade another's privacy. In the pressure to reveal their hang-ups, some (sensitivity participants) go to pieces," she added. In addition, charged Dr. Emery, many sensitivity directors are insen- sitive and incompetent, and they tend to go after the weakest participants. It is no wonder many firms and organizations have abandoned sensitivity sessions. The human mind and emotions are far too complicated to be exposed to such tinkering. HATS OFF TO NIAGARA UNIVERSITY Some time ago Niagara University, operated by the Vincentian Fathers in upstate New York, received na o tional attention when its president, Ft. Kenneth E. Slat- fiery, wrote a letter to the students, parents, and alumni . o . . .... statmg the umveraty's retention to mamtaan Its Christian !heritage. At issue were a student request for co-ed visita- tion in the dormitories, and a decision over whether to ask for financial aid from the State of New York. The university decided against both propositions. Mindful of the move away from traditional student supervision, and beset by acute financial problems, the university nevertheless felt it must stand by the tradi- tional responsibility of providing moral guidance. If it had accepted State financial aid under New York law, the 115-year-old institution would have had to secularize its programs and could nc longer stress its religious character. To have permitted co-ed visitation in the dormitories would have been a lessening of re- sponsibility the school felt it is expected to exert In these days of permissiveness and shirking of re- sponsibilities at all levels of society, it Is praiseworthy for one of our well-known universities to stand firm in its beliefs. Community Service Federal Government Involved Action Deferred on Feed Lots By ROBERT E. M[LLER Montana Press Association The State Board of Healt has deferred any action on reg- ulation of Montana's Livestock feed lots, but the federal govern- ment proposes to be quite strict in enforeemem of its restric- tions. That was the result of abear- ir held in Helena recently on a proposed set ofguidelines which the state agency had said it wanted to put into effect. The state board was warned that its proposed set of regula- tions would have faced the feed- lot industry with disaster. Whether the federal rules will be any less restrictive remains to be seen. Initially, however, it appears that the federal agen- cy will impose restrictions only 'x( on the larger feedlots, those o SOo 8ISCtJaT'S wIT'W "lT-(.t tSCL -- \\; with a minimum of 300 animals, t.DP LocK:>-It4 COV4f.:Y -d.4P,'( "\\;\ while the state regulations would have applied to all, re- gardless of size. Regardless of what the State Board of Health finally decides to do, the feedlot operator must get a federal permit by July 1, John Hardaway of the Denver office of the Environmental Pro- tection Agency, told the Helena hearing. This will apply to all feedlot operators who discharge waste into navigable waters or their tributaries (which means any stream). Applications for per- mits must go to the Army Corps of Engineers.

The committee, under the chairmanship of LeRoy Ander- son, is composed of Jackie Anderson, Rusty Packard and Dolph Bosshard. By means of the survey the committee is trying to deter- mine the actual need for addi- tional fairground use and what type of utilization is desired by the people of Richland County. The stwvey was presented in the Sidney Herald with backup from KGCX radio. The response has been only fair and if anyone has not ex- pressed their ideas on how the fairgrounds may be utilized, please send your ideas to the Sidney Chamber of Commerce in Sidney. The committee feels that since the fairgrounds are supported by the residents of Richland County, the ideas should come from the taxpay- Letter Dear Editor; I wish to thank everyone who assisted in spring clean- up day May 14.

Representatives in attendance were from Great Fails, Lewistown, Circle, Jor- dan, Sidney and Fairview. The topics of discussion were the new travel pamphlets and the needed improvements for High- way 200. Highway 200 is a newly dedi- cated vacation route promoted by the people who live along the highway which includes the states of Minnesota, North Da kota, Montana, Idaho and Wash- ington. The Association has 16 mem- bers from Sidney and a total of 140 members from Montana. The Assoeiationis tentatively planning a Five - State meeting in Sidney for late August or early September. CITIZEN SIBLEY ed that the federal government is stepping into a field which should be left to the states. It was noted that the federal application is 11 pages long and must be accompanied by a $100 fee, plus reports of chemical analysis of 14 possible sub- stances which may he present in the feedlot' s waste and which may be expensive to procure. Other western states also oppose the federal program. Doug Smith, director of the Mon- tana Water Resources Board, reported that the WesternStates Water Council has taken a stand against the federal permit pro- gram and has urged that there be further study before the regu- lations are put into effectwhich would make many small opera- tors "apparent criminals." Some of the feedlotoperators attending the hearing criticized city people who "move out into the country near a feedlot and then start complainira about the smell." One said that these people want a piece of land for country living and then move to jeopardize generations of in- vestment. The one-room schoolhouse is not obsolete in Cougar, Wa- shington. In fact, Cougar built a new one.
