Authorities in tliefield of shoplifting tell us they encounter dozens of children aveiy thy who do not relate stealing with immorality. Parents must teach children at an early age that faking things is nol only wrong, but against the law. Tlie swiping of insignificant objects from homes of neighbors and friends is often the first step. Every parent should be alert to this. Punishment should be swift and firm.

(UP1) - Tlie Johnson Administration is taking a new look at its t o o rt stamp program to try to find a way to ease (lie burden poor leoi)le experience when they firs! start receiving Hie guverti- in cut help. Agriculture Secretary Orville L. Freeman ordered his department to study the legislation authorizing the food slani[) program to see if there is any way the initial payment tor stamps can be broken clown into partial payments. Freeman, who just completed a four-day, four-state t o u r of rural poverty areas, said t h e program was creafingliardships for some persons because of the lump sum payment that now must be made to get food stamps the first time. As an e x a m p 1 e, a family might have an income ol ?150 a month. When the family qualifies for the food stamp program, it might be determined that it can pay $50 ol that £ o r 5100 worth of stamps. The bitch is that Die $50 must be paid in one lump sum where before, when they were not under the program, the I a m i 1 y could spread out the money spent on food over the month. Freeman would like toseetlie program c )i a u g e d so tlie/ood stamp recipient could work up to the full amount gradually over a period of several months. For instance, the first month, the new recipient might pay just $10 for the full amount of stamps. The next month, $20 and so on up to the full amount. "I don't know if Hie law wilt allow this," Freeman said, "but if it can be worked out, it would certainly help many people who are poor, yet have a little better income than many poor people." He said he had encountered impoverished familiesduringhis tour of fowa, Mississippi, Alabama and Indiana who would be helped if the program were revised to spread the f i r s t payment out.

Operation Farm Wife BY WILMA KIDMAN Each of us has met someone we will always remember as "the most unforgettable person 1 ever knew." I met ray new and unforgettable friend at Sim Valley recently, wliore I attended (lie National Convention of the National Federation of Press Women. My unforgettable friend is Mrs. Dona Coulter Carncs, 89- years old, from Bryon, Texas, and is affectionately known as "The Honey Chile from Texas." The elegantly dressed andbe- jeweled "Honey Chile" was my special guest each morning at breakfast. Her lively conversation always set the day in order. 1 found she was a world traveler, (eight times around) and iras named "Good Will Ambassador of Texas" by Gov. Price Daniels and she never missed a plug for her State. One morning as we were eating our breakfast cantaloupe, i remarked, "My Ibis is delicious, could it be from Texas?" As quick as a wink she answered, "Oh no, it's not from Texas, It's not big enough." She told me a bit about her life. vShe had married the owner of the Byron Daily Eagle in 1901. She was social editor on the Eagle from 1901 until 1930 and wrote a weekly column for 50 years. She was left a widow at 27 years of age. _ Meridian Stock Places in Show MERIDIAN - Three Appaloosa horses owned by Delores need of Meridian placed in the Appaloosa Horse show held at Enterprise, Ore. There were 300 horses entered at the show. Miss Reed's one-year-oldslud colt placed fourth in that class; one-year filly and a two-year filly took fifth place in their class. Miss Reed also attended the Wallowa, Ore. ION Appaloosa Horse Show. This national show had 700 horses entered from all Over the.Uniled Stales.

She founded the National Federation of Press Women 31 years ago, and underwrites tne workshops for newspaper women held al their conventions held each year. She retired in Ihe early 1950's ami now "does all thethingsshe \TMts lo do. "The men in the family do all my financial work," she said. "I have none of that to worry about." She was a Texas Booster throughout the convention. One day convention guests look a trip to Red Fish Lake. Our busses slopped al Galena Summit to view the beautiful Sawtooth Valley with the spectacular Sawtooth mountains in the distance. I said to my friend, "Honey Chile how do you like this for fdaho?" "Pretty, yes mighty pretly," she answere quickly. "Almost as pretty as Texas," She desired very much to ride Hie ski-lifi to ihe fflrantalntops but when she was told they we nol in operation at this time of year she Ihreatened lo "buy the dern thing." The last day of the convention I bid my new friend good by and invited her back to Idaho again soon. 1 gave her my little remembrance, and she gave me an autographed picture and several newspaper clippings. I read them later. 1 found her biography has been published in the Dictionary of International Biographies publishertin London, listed in "IVlio's Who of Hie South and Southwest, in "Texas Women of Distinction," and "Who's Who of American Women." She is a charter member of many Texas fraternal, civic and church service groups, an honorary member of Delta Kappa Gamma and wears a 50-year pin of the Women's Society of Church Service. She has given her city the Couter Airport and has provided many books tot the Carnegie Library in her home town. She was one of the few women to set in the press box at the British House of Commons nrj'.--iiras the first Texan to be given permission to see the Dionne quintuplets at Cal- ender, Canada. And she promised to send mea rosary blessed by Pope John al one of her four visits of the Vatican, Yes, "Honey Chile" was a real ambassador of Texas, adar- Hng of Sun Valley and Ihe most unforgettable person I ever mel. May 1 add 1 would like to be like her ai 85. Farmers in the Melba area walliered the recent storms with onlj 1 minor damage. Grainfields are flattened in places and hay in the windrows was dampened, delaying the baling and slacking. I know how the farmers must f«el \vho were in the path of the storm. To have all they have worked for all year beaten into the ground in the matter of minutes. 1 haven't forgotten that it happened on our farm a few years ago. We had only the income of three acres of onions and our milk cows to show for our year's work. Grange Leader Gives Warning Herschel D. Newsom, Master of the Nallonal Grange, said in a recent speech that America's increased production of food to meet food-for-peace requirements must not be permitted to jeopardize the economic stability of Ihe American Farmer. Newsom, head of the nation's oldest farm organization, made his remarks at aleadershipcon- ference of Ihe Pennsylvania State Grange at Gettysburg College. "The food requirements of the bellies of hungry or starving people must not," he said, "be confused wjth the available commercial market . . . or we will destroy Ihe commercial mar- kel and (therefore) destroy the financial integrity of Ihe producers of those products."
