MIDLAND PROXIES:
Spending a day in Dow-town

The tax increase would expire

The depth of the spending cut
recommended by the conference
is a defeat for the administration.
It had insisted that the govern-
ment would be seriously hurt by
any cut greater than $14 billion-
the figure recommended by the
House Appropriations Committee.
Johnson said in his news con-
ference last week that he would
accept even this cut reluctantly
if it was the price of a tax in-
crease.

It was learned that the confer-
ees also tentatively agreed to a
provision in the Senate bill which
would require a rollback in the
number of federal employes to
the level of September, 1966.
One conferee who asked that
his name' not be used said the $6
billion spending cut never was
accepted by Charles J. Zwick, the
President's budget director, and
Secretary of the Treasury Henry
H. Fowler, who sat in on the
conferences.
Zwick had told the Senate when
it was considering the reduction
that it would "require crippling
and destructive cuts" in many'
worthwhile programs needed to'
meet the needs of the poor andC

has taken an official position de-
fending the production of na-
palm; the words "Midland" and
"Dow" are synonymous.
To call Midland a "company
town" would not begin to catch
the nature of the relationship.
The air the residents breathe is
inseparably combined with the'
stench of sanitation chemicals;
only after 30 minutes of acclim-
atization, does the admixture be-
gin to smell like normal air. Most
of Midland's 28,000 residents are
economically dependent on Dow.
Even the management-structure
of Dow is deeply Midland-en-
trenched. Although the corpora-
tion was chartered under the less
stringent laws of Delaware and
has subsidiaries on practically
every continent of the globe, all
but two of the members of the
Board of Directors live in Mid-
land. And the -composition of the

board changes at a turtle's pace:
unlike most corporations, Dow's
directors are salaried employees
of the company who for the most
part are re-elected year after
year.
A measure of the nexus between
corporation and community came
toward the end of the meeting
when the pastor of the Presby-
terian church, a Rev. Dr. Green-
hoe who was also representing
the other ministers of the com-
munity, delivered to the as-
sembled stockholders what could
have easily passed as a sermon
entitled "A Paean to Both of Your
Houses."
Rev. Greenhoe praised the
ladies and gentlemen from
CALCAV for alerting the com-
munity to the complex moral
problems involved in the war in
Vietnam: he allowed that should
the board of directors decide to
end production of napalm, the

community would support the ac-
tion wholeheartedly: but as long
as Dow had taken a firm pro-
uapalm stand, the community
would respect and support that,
too.
Gerstacker received his wildest
endorsement from the crowd with
his last statement. It is significant
not so much because it is con-
descending, but because conde-
scending as it is, the crowd loved
it, just as the townspeople of
Midland are proud to be residents
of Dow-town.
He said, "Ladies and gentle-
men, you are my friends, I live
with you. I just want to tell you
how proud I am of you. You have
behaved throughout this meeting
as real ladies and gentlemen."
The image of the octogenarian
stockholders beaming and ap-
plauding this statement is all any-
one needs to know about Midland,
or about why CALCAV failed.
