    Economlc plannlngn dlrected through federal agencies, must fastbecome a reality.

    Impetus has surprlsingly been glven thls long overdue course ofactlon by e Presldent long thought of s "conserrative" in his ap-proach to economlc matters.

    But a comprehenslve, plaoed economy is a very upopular andexploslve lssue. One morellkely to be regrlated to barroom smalltrlk tlnn a netlonl alring.

    Argrments long held lu conservetlve eeonomic circles have main-trlned that personel freedom can only exlst in an economy wheregovernment lnterventlon is at a mlulmum. They cy tlnt govern-ment interferece cen only lead to a mouopoly ol power that wtllthreaten every "free" Amerlcen,

    Indeed, how free are Amerlcens ln the hands of corporate gfents orthe shanglehold of organlzed labor?

    At the otlier end of the spectrum, lrresponslble thtnkers wouldhrve big buslness broken up lnto llttle shops with tlnkers end crafts-men supplying.the needs of Americe.

    They somehow leel thet we need to get back to "the good olddys"" Local attempts at cooperatlve larmlng are examples ofthls. Nu thought seems to be glven to the faceless hmrdes of Amer-icans llvlng tn our hlghly urbanlzed clty eenters.

    Technology, ..merlc's bese for our high sbndard ol llvlng, hascome'under flre as a dehumnlzing and destructlveforce. Simpllsticmlads attempt to blame technology for all the evlls affllctlng soclety.

    In reelltyn the blame lles wlth us. Greed for the materlal "goodllfe" bllnds us to the realftles of comfort overklll, fm which weblme technology.

    The search for eeonomleatly enltghtened leadershlp should beAmerlca's number one goal. Amerlce needs a strble, humanizingeconomy lf we are ever golng to come to grlps wlth the almostorrerpowerlng soelologtcal end reclal problems now confronting us.
