As this nation and this state add a few more years to their age the memories of people and events also " crease in number. in- THIS WEEK —In Washington With Clinton Davidson Washington military experts are saying very little publicly about what many of them think may be our most potent "secret weapon" in the event of cither a brush-fire or all-out war. That weapon, we can now reveal, is our stand-by ability to move men anil war materials speedily, economically, and safely to a trouble spot anywhere in the world through a well-organized system of airlifts. Details have been carefully worked cut by military and civilian air authorities and have been reported to congressional committees investigating our military preparedness. Some of the details, given at closed hearings, still arc secret. Records available to any newsman, as well as to Russian agents here, make reassuring reading to Americans who ha\c been awed by Russian sputniks and ICBMs. We are years alio.ul of Russia on airlift facilities. The airlift is another example of lum the military and private business can work together closely to strengthen the defense of the democratic free world and, at the same time, save taxpayers billions of dollars. Nearly $5,000,000,000 worth of civilian passenger and cargo planes have been earmarked for pooling with military aircraft through an arrangement known as the Civil Reserve Air Fleet. The upkeep of any- All who appreicate Fayette and know of its intangible, as well as its tangible properties, respect its history and traditions to no end. It is time that something be done about preserving these things before it is too la 1 ". While the Fayette Development Commission, existent or non-existent, is trying to prepare our town for the future there should also be an organization that is dedicated to preserving the memory of the past. While many pioneer Iowans still are among us, this should be accomplished. The LEADER is now in the process of surveying the thoughts of our leading citizens along this line. We are certain that the results of their thinking will point to a definite need for a Fayette Historical Society. The goals of this organization should be: 1. To restore or promote the ressoration of existing old landmarks or buildings. 2. To recall the history and traditions of our town to the coming generations. 3. To take pride in the past as a means of promoting our present and our future. For examples of past and present history one needs „, W a S no i but look about him.

Look at Upper Iowa and' the great tamihes behind it. All these things have historical aigniticance. Let all who love Fayette and who believe in its future and who seek to promote it join with those who would act to do these things now. It is for our own good that we ask this. Let's giye it some serious thought. such a fleet alone would cost the military hundreds of millions a year. The importance of this large reserve airlift cannot be overestimated. It is the most' inexpensive method of providing military emergency lift and should be encouraged to the fullest c.vtcnt. The airlines have on order more than 53,000,000.000 worth of additional jet and turboprop planes for delivery in the next three years. If the Sputniks, through their dramatic impact upon the public, should cause the Congress to concentrate appropriations on missiles to the extent of neglecting airlift, the result would be disastrous. The responsibility for developing commercial airlift rests upon the Civil Aeronautics Board. It is greatly handicapped in this field, however, because although the activities in commercial aviation arc today three times as large as they were ten years ago, the stair of the Board has not been increased. For example, in 1956 commercial air traffic was 360% of that ten years previously. Available seat miles were 3SS% of the !947 figure and yet the staff of the C. A. B. in 1957 was no larger than it was ten AUSD^HURCH EVERY WEE ft? ..... PRAY rVERY DAY CHURCH SCHEDULE Grace Lutheran Church J. D.

Professional & Business Dirtctorj CREEK-BOTTOM COMMENTS by Reuben A gun is neither dangerous nor safe, good or evil. Those qualities are within the mind of the person behind the gun. A GOOD gun is splendid example of craftsmanship, evert artistry, in steel. However, the finest custom-built shotgun whatever the price, will not shoot one whit farther or harder than the cheapest mail-order- house crudity, of the same gauge and barrel length. A "full choke" will not shoot farther or harder than a "cylinder-bore". The "full- choke" should kill game at greater range. NOT because it shoots harder, but because the shot "pattern" should be more dense. Shotgun "killing power" is a combination of pellet penetration and pattern density. The "power" is in the shell, the control of the "pattern" is in the barrel "choke". 1 DIAMONDS SILVERWARE JEWELRY AND ELGIN HAMILTON AND BULOVA WATCHES SABOE JEWELRY WEST UNION, IOWA DR. PAUL F.

In most radio and TV dramas, Featured Nationally both the police and the "crooks" An Iowa traffic safety program is in the national spotlight this month as the result of a six-page feature story in Traffic Safety Magazine, publication of the National Safety Council. The article, by Acting State Safety Commissioner Russell Brown, describes operations of the state's secondary road patrol by Iowa Sheriffs and highway patrolmen. The program was initiated last summer as a cooperative effort by the state safety department and the Iowa Sheriffs Association. The purpose of the campaign is to reduce the number of traffic deaths on county and farm-to- market roads through enforcement. The article also carries a National Safety Council endorsement of a plan by Governor Herschel Loveless to help reduce traffic, deaths pji rural roads. The Loveless plan calls for carry "thirty-eight" pistols or revolvers. There are many "38" pistol and revolver cartridges, including the 9/mm Luger. The ONE thing they have in common, is the fact that NOT ONE of .354, in the 9/mm Luger, to .360, them is a true 38. They run from in the "38 S&W". The very popular "38-Steecial" is .357, actual barrel bore. But "thirty-eight sounds right, so they're called that. The rate of spin of "high power" rifle bullets is almost fantastic. As an example the spin of the ".30-'0(i 150-grain bronze- point", at 2970 Ft/Sec. velocity, is at the - fantastic rate of 213840 more stable than the velocity, rpm. The spin of the bullet is far When a ".30-'60" caliber machine- gun was plumbed vertical, underneath a plank covering, at Daytona Beach, and "bursts" were fired in calm weather, the bullets fell back base first, still spinning.
