TAYLOR Mrs. John A. Taylor FABRIC OF FREEDOM (We are happy to share with our readers this quote from M. L. Kapp, President of the Interstate Power Co. found in a recent issue of Die Inlet-slate Power News, the company's publication for employees.) Business men, people sometimes say, over-emphasize economic freedom and pay too little attention to other aspects of freedom. Ihc fabric freedom must be whole. There is little point in trying to cut it up, to see if economic freedom is the most important, or whether religious freedom or academic fredom ,or political freedom count the most. Free-i— '•- i — , i-i-, — ,t f nr i^jnus or for groups. However, it ;« in o u - -„onomic lives that most of us have our principal dayto'day contact with our heritage or freedom. Moreover' it is our economic system which provides the sinews for the defense of freedom. If we lose economic freedom, we may not be able to keep freedom in any other form.

Clermont — Countless thousands of parents must be happy right about now. And rightly so. Especially the parents of Miss Jo Ann Moore of Clermont! At this time of year we rec- ogni/e the achievements of high school seniors throughout the nation. We give credit when credit is due. Hardly anyone would make tin; statement that all of oui youth are delinquent, even if juvenile delinquency is on the increase. Records such as the following one- help to prove that many of our high school students an; slaying in school and studying and working hard lo improve Iheir minds and their all-round ability in many areas of life. Such a student is Jo Ann 'Moore, a 1U57 graduate of Clermont High School. Jo Ann has a long list of accomplishments, as have many others. -Such a list means talent, of course, but more than that it moans a four-letter word spelling w-o-r-k. She has been active in sjpeech, vocal jruisic, band, instrumental groups, piano, dramatics, and has a superior recod scholastically. She has won 13 Division I ratings in state contests! It lakes time to participate in many extra-curricular activities, to keep up your grades, and to gel your work in on time. It takes management, will power or won'l power, and desire. You Jiave lo waul lo do something badly enough in order to work and earn it. Glen Thomas In West Union Hospital Glen Thomas, U9, of Kayette was admitted to Palmer Memorial Hospital in West Union Tuesday night. He is reported lo have suffered a slight stroke. There seems lo be no way of condensing a record of accomplishment like Jo Ann's. Even foi the sake of ease of reading, it seems well to list her achievements one by one. She has been a Rainbow girl for the past 5 years and is a past worthy advisor of Assembly No 28, West Union, Iowa. It is interesting to note that she has helped in community work. She has sung in the church choir, at weddings and funerals and at other gatherings and meetings. She also gave readings She has sung and given readings at Easier Star and Masonic pro grams in Elgin and Wesl Union Jo Ann is Ihe granddaughter o. Mrs. Nellie Carpenter, life-lout, resident of Fayetle County, who for many years was telephone up erator at Randalia. She is tin daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. H.
