IVIdlUII LUUIGI limy, vi. v ; It is very Ratifying to know thM mil lions of people this year will b observing lilt 44th birthday enniverssry of Martin Luther King. Jr., January 15th. On this fifth consecutive year of nationwide com memorations, it is a pleasure to send you this message My husband's birthday anniversary is a day for the celebration of his life and the perpetuation of his teachings. It is a day for recognizing his leadership and under standing its meaning for the future. The uniqueness of Martin Luther King was that he not only spoke of his ideals with uncommon eloquence, but that he also took action in a movement for the fulfillment of those ideals. He observed that the rights of humanity should be val ued even more highly than one's own in dividual life, and he made the ultimate sacrifice himself. Martin Luther King also proved that lasting social progress can be achieved without resorting to hatred and violence. He set in motion a struggle for political and economic liberation of black and other poor people, and for peace rooted in justice and equality. Many achieve ments in thttstruffto are already history. The challenge to us now is to continue the struggle and hasten the time when his dream becomes a reality. Yes, he was a dreamer, but a planner, too. It is left to us to carry out the plan - a nonviolent movement, pragmatic in its action, moral in its purpose. If the deepest tragedy in the loss of Martin Luther King was that his work was unfinished, the greatest inspiration in his legacy can be found in his own words: 'The arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice." January 15th is a day in which black people justifiably take special pride. But let us remember also that the life and leadership of Martin Luther King, Jr., transcends race, creed and nation. Let us resolve on his birthday to re-dedicate our selves to his quest. Every time a single person grasps what he stood for, and makes a commitment to his movement every time any individual anywhere takes a position against human suffering and injustice... the ideals and legacy of Martin Luther King. Jr. will be vindicated and strengthened. Idealism and Generation Holding Interest groups and elections as well as styles in reforms help to bring about many idealistic movements among the youth and the young. But such movements, fueled by the youth, seem to quickly pass and makes one won der about the depth of true com mitment to such ideals. Civil rights, the war against poverty and peace demonstra tions have been well out front movements. Ciyfl rights move ments helped toJMing and bet ter focus attei&on. by-all seg ments to the- many injustices rendered against blacks, women and other minorities. The war against poverty pointed up the devastating plight of the poor, educationally and economically, regardless of race, creed or color and many, many welfare pro grams were instituted to help alleviate some of the conditions under which many of the less advantaged and poor existed. Peace movements turned our Vietnam policy into a more seri ous search for a way out of the "undeclared war." The determined, humanitari an spirit is a product of personal development, but may be tem pered or attenuated by the op portunities and trials that a time in history imposes. Reformers make themselves at any time (we are grateful for that), but society makes more progress at some times than others, j We perhaps think of youth as an interest group, and as such, they have played most dramatic roles in the past few years. But "the manner in which young de termination and compassion col or their adult lives will affect our nation longer and deeper. It is hoped that true commit; ment toward these very human istic ideals will become the watchword of not only our youth and the young, but to others in policy and decision making roles as well as we move forward with great hope that peace will soon come. A New Governor The inauguration of James E. Holshouser on January 5 signal led new and long sought desires for Republican readership among North Carolinians. Many will re fer to the election of a Republi can governor as a mandate for change ; others will simply cite it as the way of politics; and still others will have a "no comment" or wait and watch attitude. A 8 one looks at the power vest ed in the office of the governor of North Carolina, you will be quite surprised. For among the 50 states, North Carolina's gover nor is the only one who does not have the veto power. This means that any legislation the governor's office thinks or be lieves may be undesirable for the state and or its citizens, must be accepted by the governor A FEW UNIONS HAVE REGRESSEPTO THE POINT WHERE THEIR Aoe AHi RONGE5T0ULUAPKS UFE.

As originally conceived, public housing was to be built with federal aid, but rents were supposed to wver operating expenses. This arrangement became unstuck in the 1960s. whdn rising costs and inflation led to rent hikes that threaten ed to place such housing out of the reach of the very low-Income families it was built for. Congress then passed a law limlttog public housing rents to 26 percent of a family's income, resulting in rent cuts which the government made up i through payments to the local authorities. Such an arrange ment is fair and reasonable, but since the government has failed to release the funds it is obliga ted to pay, many local authori ttes may go bankrupt. . Basically, they're left with two alternatives to board up their houses, or to turn them to them. ' It makes no sense to aban don public housing now. Con gress has set a goal of six mil Hon new housing units for; low and moderate income families by 1978. That goal probably wont be met. Federal pro grams to encourage home owner ship and to subsidize private ef forts in this field have been shot through with scandals thai; may cost far mare than the operat ing subsidies needed to keep public housing afloat f Even if subsidies continue to rise several times over, they won't cost the government ss much as its present subsidies to middle and upper income home owners in tax deductions hot available to tow income rent ers. ; Public housing projects have come to for 4 tot of criticism, much of it amply merited. But there is evidence that many have learned from past mistakes and taken as a whole, the pro gram houses more loWiincOmt pie in decent homes than any other means yet devised.

Heavy Another Truman Dimension TfjrARRY S. Truman, 88, the 33rd U. S. President, died on XX Tuesday, December 26, 1072 at 7:50 a.m. in Kansas City, Missouri. This news made headlines sll over the world, followed by the details of a rather simple and brief burial service in Independence, Missouri, his home. What kind of man was Truman? He wss oftentimes characterized as a little fitsty, industrious and blunt poli tical giant. His command of salty words snd tendency to articulate them, publicly denied him the suavity of his pre decessor. Franklin Roosevelt. Truman possessed a style of brazenness snd independence that was admired .by many Americans, but was also disliked by many. The latter thought he was unrefined. Inheriting the Presidency early in Roosevelt's third term, due to the letter's desth near the end of World War II, was not an easy task, nox was following in the footsteps of a great staesman and charismatic personality. Roosevelt had. established a domestic and international agenda upon which Truman was able to project himself as a strong decision maker, capable of shocking the world. , He Met Momentous Events ! v Three weeks after he waa sworn in as President, fifty nations met in Sen Francisco to proceed with the building. of the United Nations. Just short of one month after Truman took office, Germany surrendered, ending the war in Europe. Three months later, Japan was hit by deadly atomic bombs, ' bringing about her immediate surrender. , Harry 8. Truman was a clever in-tighter who place high priority on winning, and seldom lost crucial political battles. However, his bluntness and sense of independence often times got him Into trouble, but he Usually managed to come out on top. His dismissal of the Alger His case as a "red herring," promotion of Integration in the U.S. military and equal employment legislation, China policy and firing of wartime hero, General Douglas McArthur. brought a rash of public criticism. v ' 1 I will never forget the worldwide criticism that emerged when he let McArthur know that he wss the boss and wouldn't tolerate his defiance. Truman also saw to it that the old soldier didn't return as McArthur predicted. In at uncertain terms, he pulled McArthur out of Korea, and con demned his desire to excellerste tot war. , , .
