Land Use Planning! It is be- ing 'sold' to us as "necessary to save our farm land, and to protect our private property rights"; it is presented as not ordy necessary, but inevitable, so w~ should plan locally, en- abling us to "keep local control." In other words, we should give up our individual control for control by a local Land Use Plan- ning Co~ni~ee! Some people in Wyoming hon- estly think we should do this as ~ea as possib~ to protect us from National Planning. That is a fool's dream. Land Use Ptmming is already National, end it is being promoted simul- taneously, right now, in all 50 states. This is not accidental; it is phnned. Nelson Rockefeller resigned fixm~ the very powerful position of New York State Governor to head the NATIONAL COMMIT- TEE on CRITICAL CHOICES. His commitee is to arrive at "a clearer sense of national pur- pose." Sounds noble? But wait a minute; a "national purpose" requires a cenlralized govern- mont. National planning is a c~iectivist concept, quite op- posite of our constitutional, rep- ~entative Government idea, which was established to protect us as we pursue our own pur- ~se~ef! But more about the ellers: Brother Laurence heads the Citizens Advisory Committee on Environmental Quality which has a task force dealing with--you ~d it-- Land Use Planning. The findings of the task force mm summarized by Wolf Von Eckardt of the "Washington Post": "We need more compre- hensive planning and more ef- fective controls to make plans stick. The foremost need, how- ever, is a change in our national attitude toward private property rights. (Read that line again!) That is a matter of legal doc- trine which calls for new inter- pretations by the courts in light of our urgent social and environ- merLtal needs." In other words, one of the na- tional pu~ is to CHANGE THIS LAND FROM ONE OF PRIVATE PROPERTY OWNER- SHIP AND CDN'I~OL TO ONE OF GOVERNMENT CONTROL OF PROPERTY (SOCIALISM). The planners know we will never accept direct national control, so we are to be enticed, coaxed, bribed, threatened and enveigled into doing it ourselves under the guise of "retaining local controL" A clever scheme, isn't it? Mrs. Joe Svoboda Alva, Wyo. We have a caste system in the United States. It's not based on race, color, creed, sex, wealth, or income. It's quite broad and vet very narrow. It has been imposed on us by a stupid con- gress. It will eventually bring about the down fall of our coun- try. We are all equal at birth, but become at maturity either high caste or low caste. It's amazing that so many of us choose to be low caste. I guess we are just a glutton for punish- ment. If you are an employer you are a devil. If you are an em- p/oyee, you are a saint. The congress and the courts are two faced. They claim that they don't believe in discrimination, but gaey do. For example, .an employer must not form a umon cr conspire to control his in- come, but the employees can. The employer being rich and a devil must pay for any mishap that happens to his help. While if he gets hurt it is just a good laugh. If the employee runs ymw tractor over a cut bank and wrecks it, it's your hard luck. But if he gets hurt it is your neck. The employer mtrst pay half of the helps social security, also all of his own. Under the OSHA law, the employer is en- tirely to blame. If an employee commits suicide by sticking his head in a lmz saw the employer is punished for not having a guard around the saw. The em- ployee has no responsibility. He is the inn~ent victim of what ever happens. The employer is always the devil. The latest rock around the employer's neck is that he has to pay 75% of the help's health insurance. Why don't the help pay the employer's for a change? The minimum wage of two dollars an hour will throw thou- sands of people out of work. I'd like to get two dollars an hour. But then I'm self employed. Many people cannot produce products worth two dollars an hour, so will have to go on wel- fare. It is impossible to hire anyone under nineteen. We wuuld all love to, but we become suspect if we do. We are crimi- nals before the act. The law as- sumes that you will cheat, brow beat, over work, starve, under pay, and other wise pollute the minor. Hog wash! You are preconvicted. I went out to work when I was seven years old. There were no law restrictions between employ- er and employee. I worked plen.ty, but I didn't make a dime for anyone. And I didnt get skinned up much either, but I learned how to be independent, which is worth far more than all the laws of a decent congress. I graduated up to five dollars a month, and then to thirty dollars a month and my beard. I was rich, was loaning out money. But the knowledge I attained is what sustains me today. Und~ our laws of today I would be rothing more than a half-wit. Om" congress assumes that you and I are much below them in intelligence. In fact, it doesn't know how you and I survive. Still it knows that we are an everlasting source of money. There is no lack of work, only vicious laws, which are an insult to the employee. He is assumed to be a helpless simpering idiot, unable to cope with his wicked employer. Frank Brislawn GROWING , YOUR OWN By Linda Linn U. W. Extension Writer April 9, 197--I've been visiting this past week, looking at neigh- bors' vegetable plants in indoor flats and the plants are nearly ready for transplanting into cold frames. Everyone's got the itch to set out their plants now in the early April warm wea- ther. rm waiting. In several weeks low altitude Wyoming residents may transplant into cold frames --but not now. The sneaky nice weather is so interlaced with hard frosting nights that only a fool gives in to the urge-to set out the plants. But we can get the cold frames built now, keep snow off the in- tended frame sites, and begin preparing the enclosed soil. My husband, Gone, builds our frames each year with whatever scrap lumber he has. Essentially the cold frame is a huge wooden rectangle set on the ground and covered with a removable sheet plastic lid. Gene makes our frames ten feet long, two to four feet high, and four feet wide. He stakes two by two-inch markers the height the frame is to be, at the corners of the intended site, then nails lum- ber to the markers to create a rectangle. The entire rectangle is then hammered securely into the ground to insure that air cannot seep into it from the bottom. A lid is created by forming a light weight recetangular top to fit the boxed frame and criss-cros- sing it with lath, leaving as much window space as possible. Heavv duty clear plastic is then stretc!a- ed over the frame - lid and tack- ed down securely. Presto. A cold frame. When hard-frosting nights and days have ceased, indoor plants sets may be transplanted into the frames. The lids are removed during the warm hours of the day and replaced before the air turns cool later in the day. The tight frames conserve heat throughout the nights, protect plants from light frosts, yet give the plants themselves the ad- vantage of being planted earlier in regular soil than would be pos- sible otherwise. The cold-frames also protect tall and delicate plants like to- matoes from wind damage in areas like Laramie where heavy gusts can destroy garden stalks in an afternoon of 80 mph winds. Gene and I have used cold- frames to grow tomatoes, pep- pers, eggplant and kohlrabi. Within our vegetable selection, these were the plants that need- ed the additional hours of heat and the additional protection from the elements. The hardier cole crops like cabbages, broccoli and cauliflower were transplant- ed directly outdoors after the last severe frosts and were able to stand some temperatures as low as 20 to 30 degrees F. Seed packets and seed cata- logs usually identify plants that arent hard and that will need extra protection, like a cold- frame. Soil within cold4rmnes should be dug and turned approximately one foot deep until it is loose, has all dirt clods broken, and can eas- ily be worked and dug with your hands. Any fertilizing and nec- essary spraying for identified in- sect problems should be done at this time too. Insecticides and fertilizers should be worked into the soil after tilling and prior to transplantting. AERIAL CROP SPRAYING ALFALFA WEEVIL -~- SAGEBRUSH PHONE: WED & PEST OFFICE, SUNDANCE 283-2375 LARRY MITCHELL, SPEARFISH Private Line--605/642-3181 BLACK HILLS AIRPORT, SPEARFISH 605/642-9987 Larrg Mitchell When the time is right for transplanting into cold-frames, UW Plant Horticulturist Charles McAnelly says, plants should be lifted from their flat, allowing the peat pot to remain around the plant root. The peat pot should then be broken from the bottom and the plant placed in a hole deep enough to cover the roots plus a good portion of the plant stalk. The plant leaves and several inches of the stalk should remain above the soil line. Loose soil should then be filled into the hole and be packed tightly up around the plant stalk. After the cold frame is planted, allowing approximately two feet circumfferences around each plant, it should be watered until the soil is moist but not sopping wet. Thereafter, the frame lid must be propped open or remov- ed during sunny, warm hours of the day to ventilate the frame and keep the plants from being baked. When the frame lid is open, the frame soaks up heat. When the lid is closed, the retain- ed heat protects plants from cold- er weather outside~ Subsequent watering should take place regularly wheneve~ the soil is dry. With cold frame use in past years, Gene and I have eatea ripe tomatoes at Jackson Hole al- titudes and temperatures in mid- August. The peppers and egg" plant within cold farmes edible by late August and their parent plants were proteci~t ~rom killing frosts until the first week in September. Low altitude areas in Wyoming could easily use cold-frames to grow short season melons, and the statt~ that goes with eating a he,he- grown melon in Wyoming is with- out equal. In olden days girls wore dres- ses long enough to cover their ha- steps. Newadays, their dresses barely cover their step-ins. It's nice to be important, but it's more important to he nice.
