editorials FAG! 4 Garden City Telegram Monday, June 28, 1971 Hoovers Not Indispensable (Guest Editorial by Ihiane West, Garden City attorney.) Eleven years ago, while serving as Finney County Attorney, it waa my privilege to work with the Federal Bureau of Investigation as that agency assisted our sheriff's department, police department and Kansas Bureau of Investigation on the Clutter murder case. Numerous items of physical evidence were submitted to the FBI laboratory and four specialists testified at the trial. Through all of my contacts with the Bureau, I was continually amazed that all of my correspondence was signed by J. Edgar Hoover. The FBI has been Hoover's baby — so to speak — since he was appointed director in 1924. Under his leadership it has developed into an outstanding law enforcement agency that has served this country well. As one who has admired the job Hoover has done with the Bureau, I am saddened by his refusal to relinquish the director's job. As a bachelor, Hoover 'has been "married to the Bureau." For the good of the country and 'his beloved FBI he should discontinue his attempt to celebrate his Golden Wedding Anniversary! Of course it is only with the President's consent that Hoover stays on. Selecting a new director is perhaps the thing that kept Presidents Kennedy and Johnson from making a change. However, no man is indispensable and Hoover is no exception to the rule. Let us hope he and the President recognize this and act accordingly. Retirement now amid the applause and accolades of his grateful countrymen would be a fitting climax to Hoover's long and distinguished career of public service. "WHAT TOOK you so long in the bath tub?" a summertime kid was asked. "Well I was just counting things — my scratches, bruises and bites" * * * WHEN YOU say "Angela Davis" to a Presbyterian, smile. * * * THE FAMILY of Sara and Bill Kesler, formerly of Garden City, has long been in the service of the American Field Service. They kept traveling-through AFS students during summers here, were host family to a school-year AFS scholar, and served in various capacities on the local AFS chapter board. Last weekend they came through again for ttie Garden City AFS by helping Gwen Ramsey, daughter of Marge and Leon, off on her nine-week stay as an Americans Abroad guest in Peru. When her scheduled travel plans wouldn't work (Air Midwest doesn't fly on weekends), she had to leave for Kansas City a day early. Keslers took over at the Kansas City airport, kept her overnight and saw her of f on an early morning flight to Miami on Sunday. * * * JUST WHEN we thought we had all of the blessings of that nature (having just added two guinea pigs and a fish) we cared to count, someone made a passing observation about the probable condition of the family cat. * * * A FINE gentle family cat, white with brown spots, needs a good home.
