It goes to work the moment you turn the tap. Nothing has to warm up; you get instant recovery. Make sure your next water heater is gas. Then you'll always have hot water and plenty of it. Gas makes the big difference. NORTH CENTRAL PUBLIC SERVICE CO. "Complete LP & Natural Gas Service" Phone 295-2484 ALGCNA Any progress that has ever been made has been made tinder protest. Many many of the things we accept today and feel are our right and privilege were protested hotly when first introduced and were said they never would work. To ptotest is our American privilege. And yet, how far can we uo in this protest business? Isn't much of the protest today being made just that and not enough of do something about it in the very protest? A teriout and growing feature of public protett activity it the matt demomtration or matt gathering, Whether it it a march on a government center or a gathering of hippiet in a local park, crowd-control meaturet are neeettary to maintain peace and order. While a small or large number of police, according to the si/.c of the peace officer staff, are diverted from normal crime-prevention duties to supervise the behavior of 2,000 hippies or 10,000 protest marchers — and to safeguard their rights — it means that people and properties normally protected by those police are Unguarded. When such diversion of police forcet rt necettary, the reason for crowd-control meaturet thould be • good one. Criticizing the way these mass demonstrations have developed, the concerned police chief of Los Angeles, Tom Heddin, said: "The love-ins, he-ins, and demonstrations have gradually degenerated into riots or at least exhibitions of rampant anarchy masquerading under the guise of peaceful protest." He called for new laws to govern paradet, tound equipment and the use of parks for mats gathering!. The right to demonstrate and protest is held dear by ,.i. , ii iLTicans. It should ho. lint does (his moan the majority < ll.«.' people in cities should he inconvenienced and jeopardized by the activities ol exhibitionist groups almost every weekend? That turely it not what our lawt really intended. The regularity of "matt" movements calls for tpecial attention — and the tooner the tafer for the whole population. It is one thing to protest, another to guide the need into proper channels that something he done about it. I have been reading further into Maxwell Malta's Psycho-Cybernetics and find it fascinating. Along with thit I read a report on the coming age of Cybernation, where machines will do all suppotedly think all and we would be running around trying to fill our leisure hourt and becoming stifled. Dr. Maltz eases the thought a bit when he sayt, "Science can build the computer but not the operator. Our gadget- conscious public has shown an awarenest of the special advantages and special disadvantages of electronic machinery as compared to the human brain." "The number of switching devices in the human brain vastly exceeds the number in any computing machine yet developed, or even thought of for design in the near future. 1 "But even should such a machine be built, it would lack an 'operator.' A computer does not have a forebrain, nor an "I." It cannot pote problemt to ittelf. It has no imagination and cannot tet goalt for ittelf. It cannot determine which goals are worthwhile and which are not. It hat no emotiont. It cannot 'feel.' It workt only on new data fed to it by an operator. By feedback data it tecuret itt' own, 'sense organs' and from information previously stored." So we have hope that we will, not become; controlled by machines and lose all'of our own creativeness, a gift to us from God. A liberal writer tayt that the crowds which visit the hang-outs and the gatheringt of the to-called hippies prove society's interest in their goalt and what they stand for. I do not believe this, it's fallacious reasoning. Hasn't it always been true that the visitors to the zoo outnumber the animals? And now, my tont, litten to me; happy are those who keep my ways. Proverbs 8:32. Men die, not God. God does not die on the day when we cease to believe in a personal deity, but we die on the day when our lives cease to be illumined by the steady radiance, renewed daily, of a wonder, the source of which is beyond all reason. Dag Hammarskjold in "Markings." Have you thought how really times have changed? I am thinking of the hard work the so-called maid of all work did in the hornet of the patt. But they are a vanithing breed. Such work it now "beneath" the poor and welfare has become respectable. We have all sorts of handy electrical gadgets. The iceman no longer cometh, nor do the laundry and coal trucks of our childhood, but we know every electrical repairman. In this age of specialization, just as a doctor who treats ears no longer tests eyas, so a dishwasher mechanic cannot adjust the lofrigerator. Thus two service calls. All of this investment would have supported a maid for life. But household helpers ett's club of Republican* will meet in October for a sixth district council. The dite will be announced liter, artd the place of meeting, SOftOPTIMIIT CLU§ MIITS The Soroptimist club 'Will meet October 4, a business meeting. A social meeting will be held October 10 with Delia and Edith Welter as hostesses. •--, » fJfp* tf .'f .. , " * ' '• » • *."" ? 1 » « • •»!•• »%'.;; 11 ji -',v<f> Bulldog CKflNMlNM CfciM cliiie Y;,f?
