It is a time of evaluating the past year and anticipating the coming. Neither offers much prospect of satisfaction. 1972 was a year of dubious achieve- ments and total failures. Foremost on this list is the war in Southeast Asia From a very real hope of a peace around election time we plummeted to another series of massive bombings of the north at Christmas. President Nixon pledged four:years ago to end the war. But since that time, he has declared that we will have peace, but it must be an honorable peace. Exactly what an honorable peace is no one seems to know except, perhaps, President Kis- singer. But the quest for that honorable peace has cost billions of dollars and thousands of lives. Of course, it all seems justified when it is to keep that George Washington of South Vietnam, President Nguyen Van Thieu, in office. On a lighter note, election '72 offered ~bn~lg'c~ic i,b}2bf?~.'~-~-~ ...................... .~ ...... ":~, Then there is the economy. To con- trol that beast, a whole new bureau- cracy was established and to what suc- cess? It has decreed a plethora of regulations that hamper more than help It still allows meat prices to rise ten to thirty-five cents a pound in one week, and the economy is still stagnating. And, Governor Evans has the gall to call for massive wage increases for the state bureaucracy and politicians. Then there is the ecology issue which blows hot and cold between passionate il- logic and cold cynicism. Ecology is avery real and dangerous problem, but in the past year it has rarely been approached with anything that resembles reason. All in all, 1972 has been a year with- out reason, cloaked in secrecy The really great thing is that 1973 promises to be the same. HAPPY NEW YEAR! --By Howard M.
