Local ministers take llll Globality is a word which has not yet found.its way into our dictionar- ies. It will. Prefix it with the word "responsible", and you come up with the theme of this year's World Economic Forum held recently in the lofty, snow-covered Alpine village of Davos, Switzerland. Responsible globality held the interest of the diverse group of attend- ees who ranged from Nelson Mandela to Bill Gates. What scraps of the Monroe Doctrine we still cling to may be of little use in the coming battle to hold our own in a world that can shrink America to the size of a frontier fort. And the only cavalry that will come galloping to the rescue may be our--and the rest of the world's--abillty to deal realistically with hard, cold facts. +The U.S. economy keeps growing, while that of the rest of the world is declining. +In Brazil, their currency, the real, has plunged; this threatens to throw all of our southern trading partners into recession. +Asla's economies are stagnant. +Japan's Vice Minister of Finance Eisuke Sakakibara reported, as have Japanese officials in each of the past seven years, in one way or another, that his nation's economy has "bottomed out." +Europe, which has been a last bastion of economic growth, is in trouble. Only the U.S. is rolling merrily along. Held aloft by a stock market that sees share prices rising to heights that don't seem reasonablyJustlfled by earnings rates, consumers are still spending more money than they earn. Other factors enter in. such as the recent announcement that the U.S. economy grew 5.6% in the fourth quarter. Technology-induced productivity has surged, adding to the general optimism. What happens eventually ff the U.S. keeps soaring while the rest of the world grows stagnant? If the only conspicuous consumer left is an affluent United States, our imports will surge and our exports will shrink, causing trade deficits to rise to numbers like those of the early 1980s. Vice President Al Gore warned that "America cannot be the Importer of only resort." He said growth for the rest of the world is essential, and restated a commitment to global free trade, calling for a reduction in world agriculture tariffs. Analysts told the group that the imbalance cfhuge trade deficits can wreak havoc on currency exchange rates. Trade representatives met to urge a new global round of trade negotiations, but U.S. representatives saw the difficulty of obtaining congressional support for that agenda. Maybe the cavalry will come. In the meantime, we do have a cache of supplies to carry us for awhile. The U.S. government is in a better position to deal with problems than it was in the 1980s; the Fed and the Treasury have tools to act if the economy stalls. They are capable of coming in with cuts in interest rates and even some tax cuts. It would be a shame to see the longest peacetime economic expansion in our history shattered, but it's hard to stay optimistic ff the world continues to ignore or dissemble about the very real problems that are looming. And even harder to feel safe ffthe remark of one of the delegates reflects the feelings of the majority. C. Fred Bergsten, head of a think tank in Washington, was asked ff he was "learning anything." His response was, "I'm here to impart knowledge."

I would llke to share with you and the other readers, of the great Winter of 1948 and 1949. l remember the snow, and the wind that seemed That winter my sister and I went to school every other dayi two months of the year. Our father was a farmer/rancher. Luckily we had sheep at the house, but the hay was located two miles to | the houses, and our school was two miles east of one team of horses we could not go to school and animals on the same day, so one day Dad made a trip of hay, and the next he took us girls to and from school. Our pickup was parked at the county road, so we could provisions. Lucklly, my folks had stocked up with flour staples, and my mother's home cooking meant we didn't neighbors also borrowed the pickup to make trips My most vivid memories are of the wind that seemed to direction one day and from another the next day. As I I marvel at how the county managed to keep the main Thank you for the enhanced coverage of news from an a 1957 graduate of Hulett High.
