Best of closed one on West Fourth, all, attack the "greedy" businessman, known as the Farmers' Store By Jerry Martin / Having a natural and unshakable aversion to bigger government, we've always been cool to the idea of adding any more "experts" to the public payroll. But perhaps there should be one exception. What government really needs, while great and sweeping new regulations and laws are being formulated, is to have someone with a little common sense to ask embarrassing questions. Consider this one. Right now, government environmental planners are busy whipping up programs that would force in- dustry to help reduce pollution by burning fuel oil with a low sulphur content in generating power and running factories. The trouble is that a great part of the low-sulphur oil comes from overseas, chiefly the Middle East. We just don't have enough here at home. So if we convert all our factories and generating equipment to low-sulphur oil. America becomes more dependent on foreign sources of supply, In a time of crisis, this could create wholesale chaos. In calmer times, we add to the balance of payments problem. Similar efforts to combat smog are being made by loading up our cars with all manner of anti-pollution devices to eliminate smog. It's a great goal, but these devices cause the vehicles to use more gasoline. This means a greater demand for fuel, a faster use of our supplies and higher costs all around. If all our vehicles are designed to accommodate all these devices, it could really cause problems in time of a national emergency. We'd have a mechanized army, but they just might run out of gas. Somebody should be raising these little points when these questions are being debated at all government levels. It will be too late after we convert everything and become dependent on foreign oil. Surely, someone in Washington could also think up some new names for various government agencies. The Central In- telligence Agency has been the target of criticism by a long list of opponents. Only a diehard could say the CIA doesn't have an image problem. So why doesn't somebody just rename it: Government Organization Opposing Dictatorships (GOOD). How can anyone be against something called "GOOD?" J I J west of Ruskin Wednesday night. The Bossemeyer Hatchery this week began regular delivery of baby chicks by air to Arkansas broiler farms.

We've never seen anything better than the advice given by Satchel Paige, who became a major league baseball pitcher at an age when most athletes retire. His "Six Rules for Staying Young" are: "1. Avoid fried meats which angry up me blood. "2. If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts. "3. Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move. "4. Go very light on the vices, such as carrying on in society. The social ramble ain't restful. "5. Avoid running at all times. "6. Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you."
