They will name some of the reputable, local contractors with whom they do business." McGoldrick asked people to be paliert in having their repairs made.

Paige at a roadside stand and bought $2 worth ol fireworks. Two boys in the back seat of the car were delighted. Two dollars was a lot of money in 1932. For two dollars, one could buy eight square meals in many restaurants and a substantial number of hamburgers-not the ulcer-inducing abominations of today, but the kind with real meat, onions, lettuce, the works. But two dollars could also buy a lot olfi re works. The mail carried the assortment of pyrotechnics to the car in a wooden box about the size of an orange crate. "Geel Two dollars," said the smaller of the boys. "It's Ihe Fourth of July tomorrow," the man said, being earful with his cigar ashes. When you write a column, it's easy to beat deadlines. When you're stuck for an idea, all you have to do is drag out something about your relatives, cute sayings o! kils. the state of the nation and world chaos, (he lessons of history. But 1 write about one particular relative--my father-because I think he embodied the old-fashioned patriotism that has made the Fourth of July endure as a day of celebration. He would, I think, lave spent his last dime for Fourth of July fireworks, provided there was food in the house first. He worshipped Boosevelt--not FDR--Theodore. Teddy's picture occupied a prominent place in theliving room Adorning the wall next to Teddy was the famous "Spirit of '76" painting. My father didn't shout his patriotism except when he became angry over Hie issues of the times--which was frequent. He was the son of a Sweile who farmed in western Oregon when Ihe only subsidy was good weather and the only way to recover from disaster was hard work. He had no patience with those whn foumlfault with America. "If you don't like it here, go there," he once shouted at a visitor. He had no patience with alien systems. He wept when diplomatic recognition was extended to Russia. In a way, I'm glad he isn't alive now. It past actions caused him to weep, the bumbling antics of men in high places today would break his heart. Indians Subject to Draft SAN FRANCISCO (UPiHt's all right for an American Indian to go on the warpath for the United States. Federal Judge Alfonso J. Zlr- poll said so here in ruling that "treaty Indians" are citizens and thus are subject to the dralt. 2lrpoli's decision came in a suit by Richard D. Williams,22, who lived on a Shoshone Indian Reservation at Battle Mountain, Nev., until liis induction into the Army last March.
