Took a short bus trip the other
day, and I couldn’t help com
paring the bus I rode in with)
the ones that were operating l
several years ago, when I was'
working in the bus station. |
Frankly, the improvement ini
buses is so great, it is a waste
of time to draw a comparison.
Time was, a bus trip was some-1
thing of an ordeal. No conveni
ences or concessions to a pas
senger’s comfort, or to make his
r trip enjoyable, was given the
slightest consideration. You load
ed a bus with passengers like •

driver climbed into the driver’s!
seat, and away you went—willy,!
nilly. Today’s buses are design
ed with the passenger in mind,
. his comfort, and to make his
* trip a pleasant ride, and not just
* a means for getting from one
* place to another as painlessly as
possible. A few innovations are
comfortable, adjustable seats;
better visibility; tinted, non-glare
d'indows; heating in winter and
ur-conditioning in summer. And
The National Outlook
By Ralph Robey
Vice President Nixon made ai
spefech in St. Louis before thej
Junior Chamber of Commerce in [
which he spelled out in morei
detail than ever before his views
on economic growth. It was a
good brief analysis in its own
righi but even more important
it attempted to distinguish be

His first point was that every
one is in favor of growth—that
this i£ a game which may well
be called “growthmanship”—but
that equally significant is the
kind of growth and how it is >
brought about. .
Secondly, Mr. Nixon turned to
the comparison of our growth.

such comparisons obviously rath
er annoy him. He thinks that
we must never unded-estimate.
the “fanatical purpose” of Rus-'
sia. but'that it is inaccurate and
meaningless to use the Russian
growth fc-ate as a basis for ap
praising that of this nation. He
cites three reasons for this:

was going to vote as he pleas-

the point is, he WAS going to

Finally, Mr. Nixon summariz
ed his belief as td the proper
role of government in general,
not just as related to economic
growth. It is his view that
“where private enterprise can t
or won’t do the job, government
activity is not only justified but 1
essential.” But by government|
he emphasized he meant Federal,
state and local. He also em
phasized that whenever we con
sider government spending or
government investment in the
public sector, we must apply the
test of whether the benefits will
exceed the cost.
This particular Nixon speech
was short and unquestionably we
shall hear more from him on
many of these points before the
campaign is over. This is high
ly desirable becaues there is
room for serious argument on
some of the statements he made.
To cite merely three examples:
He polishes off the Russian com
parison a bit too easily; the use
of fiscal policies to prevent and
correct wide business variations
