The snow slowly starts to disappear and soon has almost completely vanished. The grass, trees, and bushes begin to spring up and bud. The sap starts to rise in the trees and occasionally you can see a bucket or two on a Sugar or Black Maple Soon the Pussy Willows bloom as do the Dogwood and an abundance of early Easter Lilies and wild flowers will be upon us This is the time when all the wildlife seems to awaken from a deep winter's sleep. The first sign of spring, as you all know, is the groundhog, peaking out from his burrow. But there is so much more. The birds come out of hiding, mourning doves, pigeons, crows, blackbirds, and especially robins. When the robins come, everyone seems to know spring is here. All the smaller animals of the foresf seem to enjov spring. For them it is the mating season and if you watch them closely, you will find them in pairs One of the mosl magnificent things happens in the spring. If you are ever walking through a foreet early in the morning when the dew is si ill on the leaves, and you hear a sound like the cry of a calf or a foal (or its mother, you have probably witnessed the cry of a new born lawn. Spring, the lime when the world comes alive with all of its wonders Volunteers thanked Bv JOHNNY JOHN, 1978 Heart General Chairman, 1000 N. 21st St. Now that I have had some time to digest the most successful Heart Campaign in Licking Countv.

The campaign would not have been successful had it not been for the many dedicated volunteers. A special thanks to the city chairwoman, captains, and walkers for the 100 per cent increase over last year. Also, a job well done by the county chairman and a splendid job done by his district chairpeople. and especially the many volunleers who had to walk some long distances to collect. Special thanks to the Women's Professional Group for preparing all the material to be sent out and especially the 10 hours spent on Heart Sunday And all the special events would not have been possible without the financial support of Hie businesses that participated through their time, money and place ol business to enable us to raise additional funds during our Heart Month And to all the chairpeople of the special f vents who contributed so much of their time V Opinion JL Mm Lehman Monomer Juanita E.

President of the Licking-Muskingum Co. Chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association, 1110 Morse Rd., Columbus Statements made during the recent broadcast of the Easter Seals Society Telethon may have left viewers with the impression that services provided for the care of patients afflicted by muscular dystrophy are paid for solely by the Easier Seals Society. This is not (he case. MDA's extensive free services to patients suffering from many forms of neuromuscular diseases include the maintenance of a nationwide network of 186 free hospital affiliated diagnostic treatment clinics and 84 summer and winter camp sessions in 35 states and Puerto Rico, In all instances known to us where muscular dystrophy patients have received Easter Seal Society's services, or used anv of the Society's facilities. MDA has reimbursed the Society in full for all costs. Overall, the Muscular Dystrophy Association's program of medical, recreational, counseling and educational services is without equal among non-profit health agencies We re particularly proud that MDA remains unique in the health agency field in providing its services free of charge vvilh no means test required or service fees requested of patients or their families. And MDA's service programs are supported almost enl irely by individual contributions: we receive no Oovcrnment grants Patients in the Newark area receive comprehensive care through MDA's Licking-Muskingum Counties Chapier MDA Chapters provide patients with orthopedic aids, braces, wheelchairs, therapy, and flu shots. Patients may also take advantage of the chapter's counseling program, transportation services and a full range of recreational activities. MDA. a national voluntary health agency, seeks to find the causes ol arid cures for neuromuscular diseases including the muscular dystrophies: the spinal muscular atrophies, including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis AI.S. myositis: myasthenia gravis myotonias, diseases of peripheral nerve, including Friedreich's ataxia, inflamalory myopathics and myopathies due In endocrine abnormalities PDnceppessatoinislhiip II is seldom that I pet involved in police re- f had an officer read to me from a supplement In porting, but with the recent murders and the juvenile police records case. I haveliad an opportunity to learn a lot more about the men behind the badges From the first day I set foot in Licking County. I said the police press relationship in this community is one more strange animal Having to go to court to obtain access to juvenile arrest records really knocked my socks olf In all of the other communities I had reported in. those records were plopped down in a "press" tray and nobody blinked an eye In those communities, the police chiefs were jealous of their departments, and anyone who came in and told them they couldn't keep records would have been met with dirty words, and a question along the lines of "who died and made you chief" . I know doggone well those men would not have taken someone walking into their department and carting out boxes of records. They would have carted out the individual trying to take those records But that's not the only different aspect of covering police news in Licking County. The way reports are handled here, especially with the Newark Police Department, is something to behold At NPD. reporters and the public must conduct their business across a counter, separated by a thick glass The reports are slipped through two tiny slits'on the counter top. and the police log is never touched by unofficial hands. It stays on the police side of the glass. The door into the file area is locked and every so often some poor trooper has to bang on it to get in It's all quite a barrier kind of symbolic of the police 'press relations here. I have never understood all of the security to the setup, but I suspect the officialdom is afraid someone will bite an officer or put smudgy fingerprints in the arrest book. The whole arrangement smells of a kind of paranoia, similar to a story I heard about the department being located in the basement of Citv Hall It seems there was an outcry by some senior police officials and the safety director when the decision was made to plop the men in blue downstairs. They seemed to think the stairway was an open invitation for some loony or terrorist to roll explosives into the department. I'm still trying to think that one through. Reporters look at the police reports, scratch down the info and if something isn't The Holy Word By N1RE M. STEPHENS, Box 308, Rt. 1, St. Louisville In a wilderness of truth, half truths and just plain lies concerning God's Holy Word, the Bible. I write of the tragedy of it all. I read and research all kinds of material concerning religion, even five religious papers I get regularly and also the Bible. I read in a very important church paper of a judge in Nashville. Tenn.. who was also a preacher of God's truth. That could not be. for God told Timothv. who was also a preacher, not to tangle himseif with the affairs of this life, lhat he (Timothy I might please Him (God t who chose him to be a soldier I will giJehovah's Witnesses a pat on the back here, for they believe and practice this truth, also the Seventh Day Advenlists. Neither work, sell nor buy on the Sabbath. The rest ol the religions have no Sabbath, it's just another day. only they go o church perhaps three or four hours and the rest of the day they live in such a way as to violate God's word in a dozen ways'. The preachers assume that God's religion changes as the customs of the world change, but God is an unchangeable God. The same moral truths He laid down in the beginning still hold good. Anyone who desires to be wise can look out , in the world and see what has happened because we do not live the way the Bible tells us. We think we can drink every worldly pleasure there is and it's all right with God. You can visit any church and see at least five or six ways thc word of God is violated. As Brother David said. "They have gone aside, they have altogether become fillh and there is none that seeks alter God. no not one." People are living today like there was no hereafter. But you will die. and then you will be awakened lo appear before the judgment bar of Christ. I. myself, was never in a leg show. I speak bluntly, even though I went to a certain college where there was a theater of that kind just on the other side of the street, and now I can see the same kind of a show at church and it costs nothing, the preacher never mentions this evil, even though the whole Bible cries out against nakedness. Also. I go to church and see women dressed like men and again the preacher is silent, not withstanding that Moses told God's people that it was an abomination in the sight1 of God lor them (the women) to do so. Everyone should read what the Lord told the Devii in the wilderness and alwavs remember that little word "all." means "all" and not "just a part."

I'ntil I came to Licking Count v. I can honestlv sav I never . We need It's almost fitting that plans for construction of the Moundview Center should be discussed in May Mental Health Month. The center, which should be under construction later this summer, will insure the continued availability of a full range of clinical services to the mentally ill and emotionally disturbed citizens of Licking County The $1.2-million complex will house Moundbuilders Guidance Center, the Mental Health Association of Licking County, and the Community Mental Health and Mental Retardation Board. The center will have space for individual and group psychotherapy, psychiatric and psychological evaluation, a medication clinic and numerous rehabilitation service programs. The facility will feature an expanded Day Treatment program and a new 24-hour Emergency Treatment Center. The diploma is a learner's permit Jim Bishop The right career is as important as the right marriage. Both are lifetime decisions. Within the next few weeks, many millions of young people will graduate. The rolled diploma, tied with colored ribbon, guarantees the owner nothing. Not even space on the bottom rung of life. All it states is that the graduate is qualified to go out and look for a job. The cramming, the books, the beer parties, the laughter, the dates are behind you. Now you pit your skills, your dedication, against the'world. It is a harsh, unforgiving state. It assumes that you have already selected a career. It is awkward, for example, to finish pre-med and decide that you want to be an engineer. Or vice versa. It is' worse to be 22 years old and not have the foggiest notion of what you want to do. This world devours the undecided and spits them out as bums. The most hopeful aspect of education is that so many young women are emerging with professional skills. She brings a new dowry to marriage. It means more than two wage earners. If something disastrous happens to him. she has the capability of keeping a family from ruin. Choosing a career is seldom easy It's like studying a huge menu of delicious desserts. Which to choose? Why? The most intelligent boy in my class chose politics and became an alcoholic. Another hungered for security and chose slow senility to become, after 30 years, office manager. Bright young attorneys often earn little in big corporate law firms. I graduated with a beautiful dark-haired girl with a third-rate voice. She was going to be a star. She went from one-night bands to one-night stands. I know certified teachers who have no patience and cannot impart knowledge. A man with a successful business expects sons to "take over " II doesn't occur to him that no country or community will be any better than its womanhood. Women have the power over the.beast the man to either lift him up or to pull him down. If you do not believe this, look what Eve did to Adam, that is the way God created them. Someone has said, and it is very true. "Behind every great man there is a great woman someplace." Good mothers shape thedestiny of the whole world. If any of you men out therelthink I am haywire how many of you would die to protect a woman, good, bad or intermediate? I am sure I would, for I love them all. This world belter wake up and follow King Solomon's advice and. "Get understanding and sell it not." And ever remember the same man's advice. "Rebuke a wise man and he becomes wiser."

I think thev treat supplemental re ports as investigative reports. What really brought all this home to me about police press relations here were remarks I heard some officers make about the Columbus media, and remarks the Columbus media made about local law enforcement regarding the murder investigation now in progress. Oneofficer remarked to me that he couldn't believe some of the things Columbus reporters wanted to know and how many times they called Another officer talked about being chased around the murder scene by reporters On the other side, one Columbus reporter told me he has never seen such an "elusive" bunch, and asked me if I had encountered any problems in covering the story. I told him it was just that strange animal called police press relations that had somehow evolved over the years. Then we recounted the juvenile records suit, and talked about that natural distance between police and press, and (Advocate Editorial the Moundview Center Construction of the facility is significant to this community. It is even more significant when we stop to realize that one out of every six Ohioans today suffers some form of mental illness. Moundview stands to offer Licking County the kind of broad-based programming that fulfills a very important need in this community The center design is structured to provide for a wide range of people and ills on a round-the-clock basis. We are excited about the prospects of Moundview. and we are excited about what it means to the total health-care delivery system for the people of Licking County. ' We see in this center project and in the development of the Wehrle Primary Care Center a powerful one-two punch in the area ' of health-care services. Together, they offer a health dimension to our community that must be the envv of that few sons have the motivation to follow in daddy's footsteps. Remember, old Henry Ford had Edscf. Choosing the right lifetime work is as important as a good education. Each is worthless without the other. Meditation is important. It helps to narrow the field by eliminating those techniques which are distasteful or out of reach. The student finds himself left with'a few skills and selects one. The most important adjunct is enthusiasm. I would not trust myself to a skillful physician who despises medicine. This is precisely why a career is analagous to marriage. If you are hot sure that you can wake up to it each morning happy and prepared to contribute, don't do it. Thirty percent of our college graduates are undesirables. They put in four years because they have been told it is the thing to do. They fake four years of study when, in truth, they should be top-flight cabinetmakers, plumbers, executive secretaries or sales persons. Guidance counselors will help. However, they find it hard to peek into a student's brain. They are. in effect, intelligent ears nothing more. If they knew all the answers, how did they got stuck with being counselors? The sole repository for the ultimate decision is not a col Think yourself healthy Paul Harvey Most of the books and articles urging a "positive mental attitude" focus on the material advantages of thinking yourself successful. There is an even more significant fringe' benefit a healthy outlook is essential to a healthy body. More arid more sex therapists are coming around to the conclusion that men think themselves impotent. And most every day's news includes reference to some individual who suffered a traumatic emotional experience yesterday who is in the hospital today If you can keep a cheerful, affirmative, optimistic outlook your body chemistry is less likelv to turn sour Recently President Arnold Miller of the coal miners' union endured the agony of that industry's most protracted contract negotiation while his own union's members rebelled against his leadership.

He was impressed with the analogy and we drank another Scotch. "I've got to get out of here." he said after a long thoughtful sip from the ice at the bottom of his glass. "I've got to go chase those guys around the murder scene tomorrow " many other cities. Moundview. like Wehrle. has been a long time coming, and we commend those in the local mental health agencies who had the insight and perserverance to see these projects to construction. Moundview will be built in Licking Memorial Medical Park, near the hospital and near Wehrle. We like the centralization and proximity of these important facilities to one another, it all offers a kind of health hub. easily located and accessible to the people who will use these services. ' The price tag on Moundview is an estimated $1.2 million, with the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation picking up about $900,000 of that cost.

Most of us stop when we find the first one. . My father was a proponent of education. He drew great joy from learning. It did not occur to him that this made of him a perennial student rather than a success in life. He ran the range from astronomy to zoology and missed few of the whistle stops between. I must smile whenever I write of his visit to Saint Paul's. There he was reintroduced to a nun who had taught him in elemetary school. In an earlier century, she had written a letter to his mother predicting that John Bishop would become a success in life. Now she was old and deaf.
