The and the pheasant hunter stand to gain the most. not mean to imply that farm benefit only farmers. Their of the agriculture industry to the well-being of our and our society in general. most people, these benefits have been very indirect, almost invisible Cases. The beauty of the with the amend- still attached, is that a direct and tangible benefit who wants to take it, even does not live on the farm. Thursday, July 5, 1973 1113 pheasants fluctuate greatly in response to land management. Anything that causes more intensive agriculture, whether economic con- ditions or farm legislation, also causes a loss in habitat and a corresponding decline in the game population. A gain in retired acreage with good vegetative cover means more habitat and more birds. But, game managers and pheasant hunters have a long way to go before they can start counting new birds. First of all, the farm bill must continue to receive support in Washington. Senator Carl Curtis, chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, was co- sponsor of the wildlife amendment and supported it through the Senate. The bill quickly cleared the House Agriculture Committee, of which Congressman Charles Thone is a member. The bill must now be passed in the House with the amendment attached and then signed into law. Even then, the battle is not won. The 'Who Was Navigatin: " l)i, An?how?' By Jerry Martin During the fading days of the Johnson administration, Congress took the final steps to eliminate gold as the un- derpinning of America's currency and its fir.ancial stability. Congress "demonitized" the currency. In plain language, that means dollars were no longer convertible into silver on demand. Since then, we've had rampant inflation, the worst balance of payments deficits in our history, the price of gold has skyrocketed and the American dollar has been devalued twice. Recently the United States Senate voted by a whopping 68-23 to allow Americans to again legally own gold, a privilege en- joyed by most of the world's citizens, but denied to Americans since 1933 when the late FDE rook America off the gold stan- dard. Although the Nixon administration may oppose the idea, there is a long-shot chance that Americans may again have a right to own gold. It's a privilege that should never have been taken away, but it comes a little late. We couldn't own gold when the pric~ was $35 an ounce. Now that it has reached as higli as $120 an ounce, it may be permitted. That means the dollar will buy almost three and a half times less than when the official price was pegged at $35 an ounce. Since the question of monetary stability is always such a big issue, perhaps we should base our monetary value on something more precious. Moon rocks, for example. Why bother with gold? The rest of the world has more of that than we have and they keep cashing their dollars in for more of ours. But America is the only country with any moon rocks. Dollars could be measured in terms of their worth in moon rocks. So many dollars equal so many ounces or pounds of moon rocks. Once again, America would become the strongest financial power in the world. Russia would have to embark on a crash program to build manned space ships to get their own moon rocks. The Japanese and West Germans would have to follow suit or be left behind with a backward monetary system. Red China would probably try to peddle Giant Pandas to every zoo in the world to raise enough cash to finance a moon- rock gathering expedition. This would use up their economic assets and make it more difficult for them to build bombs and support aggressive armies. It's true the boom might not last lo, gg, especially after every one starts going to the moon. But then America could switch again. Instead of moon rocks, we would switch to a monetary system based on Mars mud. The whole cycle could start over again. It would be a never- ending game of catch-up, with the U.S. always in the lead. Sound whimsical? Silly? Ridiculous? Of course. But there are times when something as far out as moon rocks doesn't seem any sillier than the "special drawing rights" and other schemes the international economists dream up to justify printing money that loses its value almost before the ink dries. All we've gotten out of the various monetary schemes of recent years is runaway inflation, a higher cost of living and a Provides this benefit at ab- :legislation merely allows the secretary myriad of economic problems.

The deal has been arranged through the nonprofit cor- poration made up of three Omaha business leaders because the state is constitutionally prohibited from getting into debt for that kind of purchase. The arrangement will be similar to those made with the City of Lincoln, which has put up the money for several buildings and will turn them over to the state after annual payments have been completed.

Mr. and Mrs. Henry Knehans of Superior and Mr. and Mrs. Ted Knchans of Red Cloud celebrated their 40th wedding anniversaries with an open house at Red Cloud June 9. Five Years Ago Dedication ceremonies for the Michael Morra as a psychologist at the Hastings Regional Center. Anderson's conclusions are expected to be announced this week. Although the theme at the hearing was on the contention that Morra shouldn't be allowed to continue his Nebraska job because he had lost a Kansas psychologist's license because two women patients complained of sexual misbehavior on his part, the hearing revealed rumblings about poor morale at the Hastings institution. Supt. Charles W. Landgraf, jr., however, contended the majority of the 640 employees at the regional center support him and his administration.

Psychologist Dave Rehovsky said he thought as many as 500 of the employees would sign such a petition. Even Landgraf conceded that Morra had done good work as a psychologist in upgrading the Central Nebraska Children's Center, but he complained about "childish" behavior on Morra's part and said the main point in his firing was the Kansas decision. Morra's license in Kansas was revoked by the Board of Examiners in Psychology and the case was appealed to the Kansas Supreme Court, which upheld the hoard. Even though the board and the court held that the testimony of the two women patients was true, Morra contends the case against him still is based on unproved allegations. He denies that he took sexual advantage of the women and the finding against him was administrative, not Judicial. He told Anderson he was seeking justice, "American style." If the institutions director decides to uphold Landgraf's decision to fire Morra, the psychologist said he would give serious consideration to continuing the fight in a courtroom. He told reporters he was thinking about "a million dollar" suit, if he could get an attorney to represent him on a percentage basis. Because of the costly legal battles in Kansas, Morra said, he doesn't have the finances to go to court otherwise. United. Methodist Church Superkr, Nel=raska Rev. Max O.
