1 â€¢ WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12, 1977 PAGE 3 Why Puerto Rico? by Art Buchwald Everyone was amazed when Presldent Ford announced ln Vall, Colorado, that he wanted to make Puerto R1CO the 51st state. Washlngton could not flgure out why the Presldent chose to announce lt Just before he was leaVlng offlce. For one thlnq no one ln the capltal, much less Puerto R1CO, knew anythlng dbout It. There hasn't been too much enthuslasm In Puerto R1CO for becomlng a state malnly because lt would mean that Puerto would have to pay federal lncome taxes. Congress lS not too thrllled about maklng Puerto R1CO a state because lt would mean pourlng mllllons of dollars lnto the lsland that were planmng to glve to New York Clty to help the Puerto Ricans there. So the blg questlon lS what was on Presldent Ford's mlnd? I thlnk I can tell you: Mr. Ford mlsspoke. What he lntended to propose was to make Poland the 51st state, but he sald Puerto R1CO by mlstake. Ever Slnce hlS debate wlth Jlmmy Carter, Mr, Ford has glven great thought to Poland. In the debate he announced that the POllSh people were not under the domlnatlon of the Sovlet Unlon. Many people, partlcularly ln the Amerlcan POllSh communlty, took umbrage wlth thlS statement, and some sald lt was Ford's blqgest gaffe ln the campalgn. ThlS rankled Mr. Ford and he declded he would prove to the Amencan people that he was nght and they were wrong about Poland's posltlon Hi world affalrs. He dldn't know how to dramatlze lt though. Had he reelected he planned to ask Poland to JOln NATOo But slnce-he lost he had to thlnk of somethlng else. Last whlle he was skllng at Vall, he took a bad splll and as he tumbled down the hlll he got a bralnstorm. Why not make ------------------------------------------------------------Poland the 51st state? It would make sense to have an Amerlcan Decision In The Caribbean border, and would screw up the Warsaw by P1eter Van Bennekom SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO (UPI) --Desplte the flurry caused by Presldent Ford's New Year's Eve announcement that he w111 ask the U.S. Congress to make Puerto R1CO the 51st state of the Un10n, chances are the Carlbbean lsland lS stlll not very close to statehood. Congress would have to pass a law adm1ttlng Puerto R1CO as a state and Puerto Rlcans would have to choose that status ln a pleb1sc1te. Nelther step seems llkely 1n the 1mmed1ate future. The Interlor Department has dlscovered that the matter 1S flquite complicated," in the words of Whlte House Press Secretary Ron Nessen. Tne staff of the department may not get around to draftlng the necessary leg1s1atlon before Ford leaves offlce on January 20. That would leave the matter up to Presldent-elect Jlmmy Carter, who wants to walt for the people of Puerto R1CO to express themselves on the questlon. And the new governor of the lsland, Carlos Romero Barcelo, seems ln no hurry to call a pleblsclte even though he has been a 11felong advocate of statehood. He 1S by no means sure of wlnn1ng such a referendum, e1ther. In h1S 1naugural address, the new governor d1d not say a word about statehood. Slnce then, he has tW1ce thanked Ford for speak lng up for Puerto R1CO, but he made a pOlnt of saYlng every t1me that the f1nal decls10n on statehood lS up to the Puerto R1can people, w1thout d1scloslng any spec1flc plan for a pleb1sclte. If a referendum 1S called, the text of the ballot must be ap proved by a two-thlrds maJor1ty of both houses of the Puerto R1can leg1s1ature. Puerto R1can law prevents anyone party from galn1ng such a maJor1ty and Romero Barcelo's new Proqresslve Party at present holds only a 14-13 edge 1n the senate and a 33-18 marg1n 1n the lower house. Under these clrcumstances, the Opposlt10n of the Popular Democrat1c Party of defeated former governor Rafael Hernandez Colon 1n fact holds veto power over any referendum. Hernandez Colon has already sald he lS agalnst statehood and favors the cont1nuatlOn of the lsland's present status--a "free aSSOC1 ated state" of the Um ted States W1 th 1 nterna 1 self-govern ment--1n effect Slnce 1952. The Popular Uemocrats are sure to 1ns1st on the 1nclus10n of the status quo ln the referendum and that would ellm1nate the posslbll1ty of a stra1ght cho1ce between statehood and lndependence, the most favorable formula for the statehood advocates. Puerto R1CO--3,435 square mlles--ls one of the four blg 1s1ands 1n the Car1bbean along wlth Cuba, Hlspanlola and Jamalca. It 1S a lush, trop1cal 1s1and wlth a hllly lnter10r and 1S stlll the most densely populated 1n the Car1bbean w1th a populatlon of over 3 mll-11On--2 nlllllon other Puerto R1cans have em1grated to the Amencan ma1nland. The last pleb1sclte on status gave the commonwealth movement 425,081 votes, statehood 273,315 and lndependence only 4,205, but the pnnc1pal 1ndependence leaders had called for a boycott of that vote. In the November 2 gubernator1al elect10ns, two 1ndependence candldates polled less than 10 percent of the vote between them, even though they had rece1ved equal med1a exposure through three televls10n debates. The arguments for and agalnst statehood are both emotlonal and flnanclal. Many Puerto Rlcans are afra1d of 10slng the1r separate ldentlty lf they are swallowed up ln the Amer1can unlon. At present, Puerto R1can resldents pay no federal 1ncome taxes, but local taxes are as h1gh or h1gher. The new governor lS also fond of pOlnt1ng out that as a state, Puerto R1CO would stand to ga1n by revenue-shar1ng wlth Washlngton. Whether Puerto R1CO'S economy, WhlCh lS heav11y dependent on 1 mpo rts from the Amen can mal n 1 and for everythl ng from food to 011, 1S compat1ble w1th statehood lS another questlon. Puerto R1CO suffers from a 20 percent unemployment rate and per caplta lncome for 1974 was only $1,913--about one-thlrd of the overall U.S. average. As soon as the Presldent returned to hlS chalet he told hlS wlfe, "Betty, the last act I'm gOlng to do as Presldent lS to make Poland the 51st state," "That's mce," Mrs. Ford saldo "Have you told anybody?"

The Presldent went outslde where the press stood frozen, walt-1ng for any tldblt of news. "I am happy to announce," Pres1dent Ford sa1d, "that I'm gOlng to recolmlend maklng Puerto R1CO our 51st state." Everyone dashed to the telephoneo It was only after they had dlsappeared that an alde sald to Mr. Ford, "Puerto R1CO?" "I meant Poland," Mr. Ford sald. "D1dn't I say Poland?" "No, you sald Puerto Rlcoo" "Oh well ," Presldent Ford sa1d, lilt'S too late now. If I retract my statement both the Puerto R1cans and the P011Sh people wlll be mad at me. We better let 1t go." "Don't you th1nk you ought to not1fy Puerto R1CO?" "Why? They'll read about 1t 1n the newspapers. Well, let's get back to the Sk1 run. We've only got a few more vacatlOn days to go."

IRS Once Demanded 'Cheerful' Returns Federal lncome taxes, due on Aprll 15, have been pald by Amerlcans Slnce March 1, 1914. Lonq aqo they took over from pro tect1ve tarlffs as the number-one money maker to keep the govern Ment gOlng. They are what Supreme Court Just1ce OllVer \Jendell HolMes once called "the pnce we pay for clvlllZatlOn." taxpayers Play wonder whether they are gettl ng thelr money's I'lorth, econom1 s ts say taxes are very llke1y here to stay. It wasn't always that way. In the early years, the nation got along wlthout any lnCOMe tax. There was serlOUS thought about one to flnance the War of but peace caMe flrst. The ldea flnally took hold I'llth the ClVil IJar. The Confederates never took 1 n very much I'll th thel r 1 ncome tax. But Northerners soon found themselves paying for most of the flghtlng, at the rate of 3 percent on all lncomes above $600 and 5 percent on those above $10,000. The rates gradually dropped and the law explred In 1871. In 1894, the lncome tax was back on the books. Newspapers gave the story only an lnch or two. Others had more to say. To crltlcs, the lncome tax was socla11sm lncarnate, penallzlnq thr1ft, encouraglng dlshonesty and perjury, brlnglng on sp1es and 1 nformers , and settlng class aga1nst class. To one Congresslonal supporter, "The passage of thlS blll will make the dawn of a brlqhter day, wlth more sunshlne, more of the songs of b1rds, More of that sweetest MUS1C, the laughter of Chll dren Ilell fed, vlell clothed, well housed." But alMost before a blrd could tweet, the SupreMe Court threw out the lncome tax because lt vias a d1rect tax, outlawed by the Constltutlon. In 1913, the 16th Amendment to the Constltutlon overcame thlS dlfflculty, and from then on the yearly deadllne for lncome tax payments has been as certa1n --lf d1fferent In splrlt --as Chrlstmas. The flrst Form 1040 appeared wlth that 1914 lncome tax, the now-famous number WhlCh was merely the bureaucratlc cholce of the new Internal Revenue Bureau, Slnce becomlnq the Internal Revenue Serv1ce.

If Scott Fltzgerald and Dos-toevsky rolled lnto one lumbered 1nto my off1ce wlth thelr latest work, would I know?" A llttle far-fetched, but Davld BenedlCtUS, one of Brltain's best-known young wrlters, was descr1Dlng the nagglng worry that was hlS for n1ne months 1n an exper1-ment unlque ln the world of publlC lendlng libraries. from the start of the year, the 38-year old Benedlctus was a fellow and "wnter ln res1dence" to a publ1C llbrary serv1ng some 200,000 res1dents ln the London borough of Sutton, a suburban dorm1tory 20 m1les south of the Thames R1ver. Resldent gurus are old hat at unlvers1t1es and other seats of learn1ng the world over. But thlS lS the flrst tlme lt has been trled 1n a free, publlcly-f1nanced llbrary any where, accordlng to Roy Smith, the Sutton 11brarlan who dreamed up the proJect. To mark the open1ng of hlS new mllllon computerlzed central llbrary, SmIth persuaded the government-funded Greater London Arts Assoclatlon to put up 2/3rds of a grant to pay a resldent wrlter. Sutton taxpayers put up the rest. Benedlctus was selected from 70 cand1dates and glven the Job on the bas1s of h1S several publlshed novels, and hlS work In radlo and the theater. His first novel, THE FOURTH OF JUNE, was a runaway best seller ln Br1tain. It lS based on his memor1es of Eton, Brlta1n's upper class school. Later he went to Oxford and the Unlverslty of Iowa ln Iowa Clty where he won a drama dlploma Benedlctus has sold the paperback rlghts of h,S latest novel, THE RABBI'S WIFE, to a U S. publisher and lt should be comlng out th,S fall From the moment Bened1ctus' Sutton ap p01ntment was announced, manuscrlpts started flowlng ln from allover the country and abroad as well as from Sutton. He was flooded wlth requests for personal counsel llng seSS10ns and the llbrary was forced to lmpose a maXlmum of SlX perl ods a day Otherwlse, "He would have gone mad," sald Smlth. Looking back, Benedlctus sald, "I had great fun," "I enJ oyed 1 t very much. I met some very nlce people and I met very mad people. "You have to be a teacher, a famlly doctor, psych1atnst, nurse and mldv'llfe." He freely admlts that no hldden master pleces emerged lnto the llght, but he dlS covered a half-dozen buddlng wrlters whose work deserved publlshlng after further pollshlng. But the frustratlons only start on the typewrlter. One trouble lS the current publlshlng receSSlon ln Bntaln. "Publlshers are no longer prepared to conslder what they used to Many agents are not ,nterested 1n taklng on more authors because they can not do enough for those they've got," Benedic tus sald But he stlll has hopes for an ll-year-old schoolboy poet, PhllllP Gault, and Susan Donaldson, a BBC secretary who has wrltten a 250,000-word novel about her dally tra1n n des to work. Only after Benedlctus persuaded at least one publisher to conslder Susan's "genlJlnely funny, very funny" man us cn pt, was 1 t con sidered As'a result, "I have to rewnte lt. They did not accept lt, but at least they read it," said Susan Bened1ctus read up to 300 manuscrlpts in hlS nine months at Sutton and came to the concluslOn that "there can hardly be anyone person ln the country who has not attempted to put down thelr thoughts of the story of the1r llfe at one t1me. "I oelleve that such wntwgs are not necessarily inferlor. People keep lt ln a drawer because they Just do not know what to do wlth it." That's where there 1S a need for a pro fesslonal writer's advlce --and wlth the success of the flrst experlment, there wlll be another res1dent to carryon.

Water (onservation 'S Greater WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12, 1977 Soccer Grows NEW YORK (UPI) -The lead1ng soccer off1c1al 1n the Un1ted States bel1eves the game 1S f1nally catch1ng on and w1ll become the nat1on's most popular sport. "W1thln 10 years soccer w111 be the number one sport 1n th1S country," says Engl1shman Ph1l Woosnam, Comm1ss1oner of the North Amencan Soccer League. "Ultlmately our poten t1al for 1ncome w1ll be as great as the Nat10nal Football League's. The greatest challenge 1n sports 1n th1S country lles w1th soccer. " Follow1ng the most successful season of the 10-year-old NASL, Woosnam pOlnts to lmpress1ve attendance f1gures and cla1ms the league lS only a spot k1Ck away from be1ng a f1rst-rate professlonal operat1on. True, lt was a year 1n WhlCh U.S. soccer captured a raft of star players from abroad, the natlonal slde Team-Amerlca competed on a world-class level and Pele won wlde admlratlon In hlS flrst full season wlth the New York Cosmos. But the 1mportant lssues stlll rema1n How great lS the sport's appeal? What 1S ltS future In the U.S.? W1ll professlonal soccer make the grade flnanclally? Attendance for the 20-team league totaled nearly 2.S mllllon, up 38 percent from the prevlous year. Per game attendance hovered around 10,200, a flgure that exceeds basket ball attendance. In Seattle, Portland and M1nnesota, average attendance exceeded 20,000, whlle In York, Tampa Bay, Dallas and San Jose lt was Sllghtly less. "I thlnk soccer's general sports appeal lS as great as any other major league sport In thlS country," Woosnam says wlthout heS1tatlon. "Its appeal lS to boys and glrls, the whole famlly. We've transformed the lmage of the game from one of lmmlgrants to the fam1ly un1t In suburb1Cl." Stlll, there are problems fac1ng the NASL. Its televlslon contract w1th CBS-TV for next season has been cancelled, although the league lS seek1ng an lndependent network In 1ts place. Lack of medla exposure could be damaglng. Boston and Phlladelphla clubs are 1n money trouble and the sltuat10ns must be resolved ln those cltles. Already 1n mot1on for next year are the San Anton1o and San D1ego clubS, WhlCh w1ll be sh1fted to Hawal1 and Las Vegas, respect1vely. Expanslon to 24 teams lS planned for 1978.
