Underneath is a quote from the Oct; 12,1900, edition of the Weekly Republican Journal: "People who have seen many flower parades elsewhere say that they have never seen one that excelled the one held in Salina this afternoon... Santa Fe Xvenue was lined with people long before the parade started." - It's just one snippet of Saline County's history that appears in the Smoky Hill Museum's 1997 calendar, "Yesterday's Heritage Today," now on sale for $10 a copy. Calendars are available at the museum store, 211 W. Iron, and at several downtown stores. The money will go toward museum educational programs and exhibits. I':'; The calendar was put together rtjy Judy Lilly, Kansas librarian 1 for the Salina Public Library, and *llve Boyle, a board member for friends of the Smoky Hill Muse- •tjm.

T CAMPAIGN '96 Dole keeps up the heat on Clinton 'We're used to fighting back,' GOP nominee tells New Jersey crowds By JOHN KING The Associated Press SOMERVILLE, N.J. — Opening a critical campaign week, Bob Dole focused on taxes and trust Sunday and promised to prove wrong those who believe his quest for the White House is a lost cause. "We're used to fighting back," Dole said. The Republican nominee strolled and bused across New Jersey, targeting Italian-Americans by march- 4 Dole may push hard in California / Page A2 ing in Newark's annual Christopher Columbus parade before two afternoon rallies in traditionally Republican subifr- ban areas where Dole has struggled this year. With three weeks to Election Day, and President Clinton holding the lead, this is a week of make-or-break challenges for Dole. He faces Clinton in the second and final presidential debate Wednesday and must make final decisions on a state-by-state electoral targeting and advertising strategy that has little if any room for error. Many prominent Republicans privately dismiss Dole's chances of catching Clinton. "The sky is falling," was how the conservative Weekly Standard put it in an editorial this week, suggesting Dole was running so badly his campaign might cost the GOP its congressional majorities. But Dole was in good spirits, despite only modest crowds here and at a later rally in Hamilton. Campaigning with Gov. Christie Whitman, Dole recalled that she, too, trailed in late polls but won by promising a major tax cut. "Like Governor Whitman in 1993, we are coming from behind to win," Dole told a rally outside the Somerset County Courthouse in the Republican stronghold of Somerville. As Dole sold his promise of a 15 percent across-the-board tax cut, chants of "Four More Years" sprung up from Clinton supporters across from the rally. Dole ignored them and made the The Associated Press Bob Dole tries to drum up support Sunday in New Jersey. case that Clinton could not be trusted to keep his promises — recalling his pledge of a middle-class tax cut in the 1992 campaign and subsequent 1993 tax increase. "If he is re-elected for the next four years, you better hold onto your wallet and everything that isn't nailed down because he will be coming after it," Dole said. Dole heads West on Monday to prepare for the San Diego debate, and he won some applause from supporters when he asked, '"You think we ought to get tougher on Clinton?" "Well, we're thinking about it," Dole said. At the Hamilton rally, he promised to press Clinton on why he raised taxes after pledging to cut them. Previewing another likely debate theme, Dole called Clinton the "great exaggerator," raising the president's oft-repeated claim of putting 100,000 new police on the street. "You won't live long enough to see 100,000," Dole said.Dole said the number of officers deployed was closer to 12,000. Dole also said credit for declining crime rates should go to mayors and police chiefs — not the president. And he said Clinton was running a campaign of fear by trying to scare the elderly, veterans and others into believing Republicans would cut their benefits. "For Bill Clinton, every day is Halloween," Dole said. ^sSif" Wftd From the Saline County Journal October 19,1871 W.H.

Which is exactly what shoppers became recently when Robert Baron and his researchers entered Crossgates Mall in upstate New York. As consumers strolled past Cinnabon and Nine West, Mrs. Field's and Banana Republic, they encountered young folk requesting change for a dollar or clumsily dropping ballpoint pens. Little did the subjects suspect that their conduct was being evaluated. The researchers were trying to see if the heady aroma of coffee or the soothing, grandmother's- house smell of baking cookies might lull people into acts of kindness they would otherwise forgo. One of two experiments showed that while under the olfactory influence of roasting coffee or baKing cookies, people were more than twice as likely to provide a stranger with change for a dollar than they were in unscented surroundings. The dropped-pen experiment produced similar results. "Lo and behold, when there was a pleasant fragrance in the air people were more helpful," said Baron, a professor at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, N.Y. Each experiment tested the helpfulness of 116 "When there was a pleasant fragrance in the air people were more helpful" Robert Baron professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute shoppers, and both tried to match the scented and unscented test areas as much as possible for things like time of day, volume of pedestrian traffic, nearness to mall entrances and lighting. The experiments also gender-matched testers and subjects, with only men approaching male shoppers and only women approaching females. That limitation was requested by mall director Charles Breidenbach, who worried that shoppers — especially women approached by men — might interpret a change request as a lame pickup effort. In a paper accepted for publication in a future issue of Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, Baron explains how pleasant smells lead to good deeds. "The effects of pleasant fragrances on social behavior stem, at least in part, from fragrance-induced increments in positive affect," Baron writes.
