Many replies of folks, both single persons and families, said that they "did not' care to live where pre- jddices, snobbish cliques, 'petty jealousies and community divisions existed. These may exist 'also iri a big city, but.they are not so evident on the surface, the survey pointed out, ;• In other words, a community is going to •lose some of its population and its more aggressive people if it does have an abundance of the 'detriments listed. It is a point well worth reflection. Where such feelings predominate, it would appear that the community could we'll be a dead duck without knowing it. ... *,. FLUORIDATION REPORT r r _< r Because fluoridation has been a .controversial subject in some areas of .the country, the idlest report 'on its use in one of the nation's big -cities is of general interest. '.. The Health Department in the District of Golumbia has recently completed a study of the result of eight years of the use of fluoridation in (he national ^capital. In brief, the Health Department survey shows that tooth decay has been cut .by six percent. 'The report was made public at the annual clinic of the District Dental Society. Dentists were High in their praise of the achievements in the dental^ field ,through fluoridation. . .They predicted that in the foreseeable future — perhaps .forty o,r,f,(f}y.year.s •— .tqqJMecay will have .been conquered. • We do not: pose as a- dental, authority, and i^ is certainty true 'that no editor can say the final word on fluoridation. But it can be stated tWt the recurring attacks oh water fluoridation find less and less suport from dental authorities. It can also be said that the success of fluoridation programs in many cities throughout the country adds up to an almost overwhelming case for fluoridation. It is a free country and those who wish to oppose the use of fluoridation have a perfect right to do so. But their case is made Ul E. Call Street— Ph.

This particular item, sponsored by the arch-conservative; Senator Barry Goldwater of Arizona, inquires j about the payments for not raising hogs '. . Y and then.the subsequent payments that the producer would get for not raising'the corn that he> wouldn't feed'the hogs ihat : he wasn't raising. And so on. For the most part such items-are an undisguised attack on the attempt of farmers, copper-i ating through government, to do the same thing! that everyone else does, either with or without; the aid of government. ' Take petroleum, for instance. With the aid of state laws, producers may pump their wells only so many days per month. Thus, with the aid| of the same government which farmers use, oil producers keep their supplies from swamping the market. Consumers pay for this typ ( e of cooperation between the government, and .the petroleum interests through practically fixed prices. Or take something like we have just had in the electrical business. Those particular boys got caught. But all sorts of agreements and understandings and monoply practices, -either just short of the law or in the not-yet-cqught stage, make it possible for industry to control supplies or regulate prices. The customers pay — not through taxes to the government —•' but through higher prices. " ' ' ', • • ' . ! ' | Labor has its built-in protection. — through minimum wage laws and through made-work provisions in many labor contracts land through immigration laws and through apprentice training programs which sometimes tend to discourage rather than encourage newcomers into that particular labor market. "" ^' ^' ' '_ ! Name almost dny; group .you v wa;nt — from barbers to bankers (and'ho't excluding newspapers) — and you'll find some built-in government protective devices — not infrequently of a nature to restrain newcomers into the,field. The govern-: ment may not appropriate, rrysney, directly tO| them, as they do in the case of farmers, but the ; government lends them powers so they can do the same thing farmers seek to do — regulate their production or restrain their competition. Alas, farmers being several million in number, have not the ability for'"togetherness" that other groups have in our socety. So when they do something cooperatively, through government, they are ridiculed for 'doing openly what our largely controlled form of free enterprise, system does quietly all the time. — Iowa Falls Citizen.

The front page of the UDM carried a photo showing the new Federal Food Stamps, which were to be distributed to families on rounly relief beginning May 15. The stamps were good at all grocery stores and creameries in the county for food purchases only. Thr; plan was very sound and was expected to save hundreds of thousands of dollars for taxpayers around the country. A similar plan might be an answer to a major 1961 problem — ADC. A total of 32 business firms had selected boys to represent them in the Soap Box Derby; to be staged here in June by the Algona JayCees.
