During that month members nf the budget com- milt?e of Commissioners Court will he preparing the 1.958 budget. That bufigot must this year include enough funds lo carry out an acl"' '<? mosquito control program on s c -wide basis. The program has hern .ived long enough. There must he M,-,'." positive indication this year thai county officials genuinely want to cive the public relief. for more than a century residents of Bj'jr-.ona County ha\e been inficterl with lh;s infestation that has prevented their enjoyment of an otherwise attractive environment. This could only he described as ttn- fnitunale a decade ago. because there \vrs little knowledge of means of' con- fioll'i>5 salt marsh mosquitoes. Now that reasonably effective inrans have hern developed, with pros- pcds of improved methods very likely, it would he a violation of public trust. lo further deprive the people of this county of this benefit. Now is the time for the public lo resume their interest in the necessity for mosquito control. For unike drouth- stricken 19")6. this year has produced mosquitoes in enough numbers to keep citizens constantly reminded of a nuisance they no longer have to put up with. This interest must be maintained or the mosquito control nro^ram will never become a reality. Comirissioners Court has indicated as olainly as if they had said so that anytime the pub- lic.was willing to drop the matter, the court was entirely willing to do so. Though some members of the court protest that they have not noposed the program, at the same time they insist that they had continual requests for other items to a greater amount than the available funds. But it would appear that there are a great many possible improvements to tiiis county less necessary than the reduction of the mosquito population. Prvf ffr—v News... G/R/ 9 IS DIPLOMATIC MARTYR Br PAUL HARVEY It is nuilr ominous enough when a treaty r = r rare-el out our constitutional right.-:, be- rj , r n treaty ra>i be negotiated by a Prpsi- ri'iit .-iiiii ratified by a simple Senate majority, "i clinically. one Senator would be p v,',Vi lo erase Cic protection afforded us by li"- i O'.-iiment that co.-t so many so much. But there's an even more sinister implication in the of Gl Bill Girard.

Who said Girard should lie tri"d in a foreign court? G'rard \\ as turned over to the. Japanese ut.dn an ''admimstrnth e acrcen-.rnt." It was negotiated and signed h.v the State DrpM-tment. Our President did not sign it. It was never submitted to our Congress. Our It>.i4 treaty with Japan left such matter.': to the discretion of 'administrative agreement." And so tbc striped-pants boys, on their O\MI, wrote and sicned a separate 13.Vpaee deal with the Japanese which he-came, the final say on the fate of Bill Girard. If we can draft Ameiicnn boys, force Sec rotary to strip them of their constitutional and then allow a State Do part men t Under Secretary lo srip them of their constitutional rights, then Jim Van Fleet is right. And it's time for cver.v mother's .-on '.o demand that our overseas forces be summoned home. lite price of peace has suddenly heroine mure than it's worth. Robert Ingersoll said it: ''The -113 that will not protect its defenders is a hit. jar. Tin government that will not de'en i its defenders is a disgrace to the nations of the world."

It swept over the world in three lethal waves, starting in May, 1918. By the time the Ihird nave subsided in the spring of 1919, it had claimed nearly IS million lives. And it had instilled in the hearts of health officials everywhere a lasting fear of influenza. Nearly 4n years have passed since that "Pandemic." or world-wide epidemic of "Spanish Flu." Many lesser influenza epidemics have come and gone. Medical science has developed vaccines against influenza, and antibiotic drugs to treat its complications. A whole generation has Blown up which re^anls flu as an uncomfortable but relatively mild illness — not much worse than a bad cold. To members of thin genera- lion, it may be difficult to understand why the current epidemic in the Far East has started alarm bells ringing in public health offices the world ovei. "The probability of another inifl is slight." says an official of the Public Health Service. "But we unmil assume that it is jn itiiporstbility." He reached into his desk drawer and brought out a for- midable-looking official report, prepared in 1953 by a committee of internationally-famou.i scientists who conducted an influenza study for the world health orgaim.ation. The report urged a constant global alert for any sign of an influenza eoidemic comparable in scope to that which fol- lovvri World War I. ''We do not know what led to the appearance of this out- broak in 1918." the committee of exoerts said, "nor whethrr a similar one will occur again . . . the oossihlity of a recurrence is always nresent." So far, the official emphasized, there is "no indication whatever" that the present outbreak in the Orient will lead to "another 1918." Fields Announce Son Mr. and Mrs. n. I..
