Fayette Comepcaient l£a7nard Correspondent Raniiaiia Corr-sscond^ct EDiTORIAL DO YOU HELP FAYETTE FIRST ? In recent weeks many leading citizens have come iortn witn some very interesting and very accurate conclusions regarding tne cerruse ot small towns ail over tne country. Viewing this quice accurate estimate or the situation, we see our prootecxi quite clear. 1 he next step is a solution tnat will wo cm. .%iuca caiic and no action means nothing toward the development or cue community. Thus, we want to share a rew thoughts with you concerning the most serious problem we have, borne will point to a iack ot industry as our most senous problem, others will point to tne absence ot a certain type of business as the problem. tJu:, we "eei that FAIL J i E'S MOST SERJOLa FROBULAI IS HhR OWN Ci 1 IZJLSS SHOPPLNG OUT OF lOWS. Before going into tne situation a Little deeper, let's recognize this fact. \\ e WHO are in business here know you cannot get every ...^ in ro,ette. Fayette merchants don't even mind sojr ^vue s ^-^g to another town to buy something that cannot oe oouuned here. But, the point is—and its very dangcious to ALL —many do not even try Fayette first. The most serious danger in this is the ultimate destruction of the town business wise. The most serious offenders would be business people who choose to go elsewhere before trying here and attempting to help their own fellow businessman. NO ONE CAN DO IT ALONE. THERE MUSI BE COOPARA1 ION. it is estimated that a dollar is circulated four times while in the average small town. We know and you know that some dollars come here, stay here, and go to heaven with their owners when they pass on to the better world. Others prohibit the tour tune round by rushing their dollars elsewhere for spending. Probably the most serious charge could be leveled against individuals who are on the public or semi-public payroll ihey certaimy, above all, should spend their money here, or at least iKt FAYETTE FIRST! We deiine public payroll as teacners, city officials, etc We define semi-public othciais as newspaper, light company, telephone company, etc. reopie in these professions are first obligated to spend their money here because they make it here and it is puouc or semi-public money in which the public direchy or indirectly becomes the employer. , -„ One local lady—in a semi-public capacity, who is regarded as one of the worst violators of this FAYETTE FiKM code, not only is content NUT to try Fayette first, but loads her car up with several others to journey to another town to save a cent or two which is soon eaten up by gas, oil and car use. We assume the beauty of the countryside compensates for the unsound logic of these mf*"vVri t '£a r Then there are those who complain about certain facilities not being here. Others wonder why other small communities afford things Fayette cannot have. Well, the answer is unity. And as far as we can determine, the people who wonder why disregard those very principles of bmin*— cooperation and reciprocity that are so important to local business, and the ultimate attainment of those town "extras." All the development commissions, plans, promotions and ideas available won't help unless genuine cooperation, emanating from the hearts of those who Jove Fayette, combine with practical purposes and push the community* By the same token that 'little strokes fell great oaks* each one's cooperation in a small way would help' cut down the 'great oak* that represents complacency and death for Fayette's main street. If each merchant who isn't aware of this problem, or each one who is but has not visited «i*o*Kf store, would do so, the spirit would enliven itself. Won't you try it? It's for your own advantage. If you gel the dollar that comes here first, you could be No. 2, No. 3 or No. 4 to whom it is given, but you lose all chance if you spend it elsewhere. TRY FAY* £TTE FIRST. WORK FOR COMMUNITY UNITY!

To rote by aecret ballet is NOT just a privilege, it a also a RESPONSI- B2LITY. • • • • The "battle" to reorganize the dep^rtrrjecti of defense will be quite a fight, that is tt will be, if Mr. President should pres3 the fight. The Navy and Navy tradition is one of the fore-most "sacred cows" of this country. Also, Rep. Vinson Georgia Democrat, is a mighty powerful man in Washington. We .predict Mr. President will lay his golf dubs aside, momentarily, roar into this fight with his voice raised above a whisper, and come out with enough of a victory to "save face" of what political prestige this unfortunate second term has remaining. However, the pertinent fact wul still be with us, that the American people have a national right to adequate defense WITHOUT needless duplication and waste. We believe fulfillment of that people's right is not within the fore-seeable future. • • • • • We "challenge" all firm believers in fully "fixed" farm price theory to forsake TV long enough to read the editorial "It Had To Happen Sometime", in the April 19th Farm Bureau Spokesman.

TALLE REPORTS TO THE PEOPLE TOURIST SEASON IN WASHINGTON One of the rare signs of spring in Washington, along with the cherry blossoms, which are late this year, is the sudden increase in visitors. Between the middle of March and the end of June more than a half million student groups from every part of the country will visit the Nation's Capital. A first visit to Washington i3 indeed a thrilling and never -to-be-forgotten experience. Here history becomes alive.

And no matter how many times we revisit Washington, or how longe we actually stay here, our hearts never cease to beat quicker at the sight of the Capitol glistening in the bright sun of a Washington day, shimmering like a vision of hope for all ages in the haze of a spring morning, or shining like a beacon of safety in a confused world when its thousands of lights pierce the dark of night. Already this spring we have had a number of visitors from the Second District of Iowa, and I expect to have the privilege of greeting many more in the next few weeks. Several bits of information might he5p to make your visit even more enjoyable-. THE CAPITOL Dominating the entire city and the mecca of all tourists to Washington is the Capitol itself. It has fittingly been described as foflews by Dr. Diasdodo M. Yap. publisher, lecturer and correspondent for a Manila newspaper: "Tie Capitol of the United States is the supreme monument to man 's rise from a nomad to a citizen. To the American, his Capitol is a part of himself. It is the living symbol of his freedom, the basis for his political self-respect, and the proof of one of the greatest historical phenomena of all time; 163,000,004 people actually governed by themselves. The building and what it holds, like the prtariptos feey represent, are an amalgam of the wisdom and the arts of the ages and many races." GAY'S BARBER SHOP Gaylen Bierbower, Prop. 144 Main St Fayette It Pays To Look Well The Capitol is situated on a plateau 83 feet above the level of the Potomac River. Tne height from the Capitol Plaza to the bronze statue of Freedom which tops the building is 287 feet. The cornerstone of the Capitol was laid by President Washington on September IS. 1793. THE MACE in the CapitoL sometimes over- One of the objects of interest looked by tourists, is the Mace which stands at the right of the Speakers' desk in the House of Representatives. The Mace is the only visible symbol of Government authority in the United States. An assistant Sergeant -at- Arms sets it in place when the House is called to order each day. There it remains in position while the House is in session. Its removal to a lower pedestal means the House has resolved itself into a Committee of the Whole. Thus Members can see whether the House is in session or in committee simply by glancing at the Mace. On rare occasions when, in the heat of debate, the House seemed on the verge of getting out of hand, order has been restored simply by having the Sergeant-at-Arms present the Mace in front of the offending member or members.
