(Herald Photos) Would Put Warning On Fag Pack LINCOLN (AP)-A bill which would require cigarette packages to carry a warning was advanced to the Nebraska Legislature Monday. Under the bill, as approved by the Legislature's Public Health Committee, each package would have to carry a label saying: Use of this product will endanger human health." The director of the Eppley Institute for Research in Cancer and Allied Diseases, Dr. Henry Lemon of Omaha, said the bill will be "a step forward in the ultimate control of cancer of the lung." Representatives of four Nebraska cigarette wholesale firms opposed the bill at a public hearing. They contended research linking cigarettes with lung cancer is inconclusive and contradictory and labeling of their product would be unfair and discriminatory.

America's shoes are pinching, but that's no reason for throwing them away. That was die theme of the laugh - filled, thought - pushing, effective speech of G. Robert Gadberry, vice president and trust officer of Wichita's Fourth National Bank, last night at the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce annual dinner. Frank Holden, C of C president, was master of ceremonies for the dinner at Garfield School. He announced the election of Harold Crawford to succeed him on March 8. Holden called upon Mayor Charles Williamson to present this year's C of C award to Ottawa's outstanding citizen. The award went to Lamar Phillips, Herald staff member, in recognition for his 35 years of service toward flood protection for the Marais des Cygnes valley and the Missouri Basin. Gadberry said some of the shoes pinching America today are: 1. Our lack of confidence in ourselves. 2. Our lack of understanding and appreciation'of our neighbors. 3. Our lack of faith in America and in individual enterprise. When the shoes pinch, said Gadberry, it's time to search again to build a stockpile of the things that has made America great, time to count our blessings under our free society and consider our great and abundant resources. It's time, he said, to renew our faith in ourselves, neighbors, America and God. Holden listed Ottawa achievements during the past year, noting the new Christmas decorations, completion of the local flood protections system, 12 new buildings and 9 others in the planning stage, the weekly legislative luncheons and efforts for additional off-street parking. Holden announced that J. R. Cheney, Robert Clogston, Paul Gaynor, Lewis Irwin and Budge Reusch are the five new 3-year directors elected in the mail ballot. In accepting the award as outstanding citizen, Phillips noted that others had been leaders in flood protection work. He named Russell Crites and George Lister among them.

Warmer Weather TOPEKA (AP)-A cold front which moved across Kansas Monday produced frosty temperatures this morning over eastern Kansas. Clouds in central Kansas and southerly winds in western sections of the state kept temperatures from going so low in those areas. Lows ranged from 7 at Lawrence to 23 at Goodland. A few snow flurries were reported Monday and Monday night but there was no appreciable amount. The Weather Bureau said southerly winds are in prospect and should produce a rapid moderation in temperatures. Prescriptions—Raney, CH 2-3092 Adv. Officials Want Cars TOPEKA (AP)- Seven elected state officials of Kansas asked the state Monday to buy cars for them. A petition, delivered to the House Ways and Means Committee, would provide cars for virtually unrestricted use for all elected state officials except the lieutenant governor. The governor already gets an official car. Other state officials are paid mileage for using their private cars on state business. The measure, which would cost $21,000, was denounced as ridiculous by Rep. Bill Fribley, R- Crestline. He made a motion to table the petition. The motion was not recognized; but Rep. John Conrad, R-Greensburg, indicated the committee probably will take no action on the petition. Fribley added: "I didn't hear them say anything about this when they were running for election." Tauy's Toot Viva les C of C and PTA! "PTA Wives Don't Neglect Mates" Mrs. R. W. Scoville, Kansas City, Kas., president of the Kansas Congress of Parents and Teachers, last night discussed the organization's support of the unification of school districts and defended the PTA against the "image on the front page of some newspapers," and Admiral Hyman Rickover's recent statement that the organization • is run by women who are neglecting their husbands. Mrs. Scoville, addressing the Ottawa Junior - Senior High School PTA Founders Day meeting last night, said she believed the school district unification proposal was a realistic approach to education in Kansas because it would place students in larger schools with more subjects to study and give them an opportunity to develop little known talents. The Kansas PTA president said the early-day PTA members were accused of neglecting their homes, but added the organization has survived such accusations and has been responsible for aiding education students through scholarships and helped inform others "about our schools." Mrs. Scoville said the organization was not trying to manage schools but rather interpret the schools by being the voice of the people. Referring to newspapers, she said, "In spite of the image on the front page of some newspapers, the PTA does go on." Mrs. Scoville also discussed the objectives of the PTA which include: promoting the welfare of children and youth in home, school, church and community; raising the standards of home life; obtaining adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth; bringing into closer relation the home and the school so that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the training of the child, and developing between educators and the public, such efforts as weill obtain for every child the highest advantages of physical, mental and spiritual education.
