Public Pulse Page 2 Garden City Telegram Saturday, June 19,1976 Discrimination I want to yell discrimination. Discrimination against whom? — the rural patrons of the Garden City Telegram and city merchants that ran an ad in the June 14 Telegram for an early morning sale to begin at 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. on the 15th of June. Why is this discrimination, because as you well know most of us don't get the June 14 Telegram until 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on the 15th. So pray tell how are we to take advantage of such sale items? Let me tell you, I wouldn't go to those stores to buy anything I could get any place else. ! So think about the date you run an ad. Let's hear from others. — MRS. G. R. WIDOWS, South Star Rt. (Retailers have been advised that many rural residents receive their Telegram through the postoffice, which makes delivery the day after publication. —Ed.) For Humane Treatment We, the Peace and Justice Commission of the Sisters of Saint Dominic, are repot-ting to the readers of the Garden City Telegram that a position has been stated and action taken relative to the illegal alien and our moral response to his situation. We will continue to do all in our power to insure just and humane treatment for the apprehended, incarcerated and deported illegal alien. More specifically, we will •> continue to work with existing organizations in the community of Garden City in this highly moral and Christian endeavor. — The Peace and Justice Commission, Sisters of St. Dominic, Great Bend, Kan. Good Samaritans I am writing this to thank the Mr. and Mrs. Cutter of Garden City who picked up our grandson, Kendale Dupuy on Highway 56 between Moscow and Satanta Sunday evening after his car accident and took him to the hospital. They then came to the church and notified us. It is such a good feeling to know there are still people who care. Thank You, Cutters. — MR. and MRS. DALE E. BEARD, Rt. 1, Moscow, Kan. WhatG.W. Didn't See George Washington never traveled faster than 27 miles an hour in his life. He never heard a radio. He never saw a flashlight. He never rode in a jet plane or an elevator. He was never higher than 40 feet above the soil of his beloved America. He never heard the beautiful strains of the Star Spangled Banner,, or heard the clarion words of the Battle Hymn of the Republic. He never saw the soaring monument from whose turret windows millions of his free (and prosperous) progeny have looked down upon his beautiful namesake city — only a swamp the day in 1793 when he laid the cornerstone of the Capitol. He never knew the joy of floating down the broad Mississippi as his disciple Lincoln did. He never got to stroll through a supermarket, its shelves laden with foodstuffs from America's fertile fields. He never got to study with his cool surveyor's eye the majestic purple depths of the Grand Canyon (greatest natural wonder on Earth and without meaning in any but a Free land). He never got to see California's towering Redwoods, whose roots were growing in the time of Christ and whose mighty limbs brush the heavens today. But more than any other man, George Washington made it possible for all of us to enjoy these God-made and man-made marvels of America, and so the question before us today is what kind of Americans has this heritage of Liberty and abundance made us in the 200th year of our Freedom? Worthy or unworthy of Washington? — JOSEPH RAY, Clinton Rd., Whitesboro, N.Y. Garden City Telegram PubliahtHi daily except Sundays and New Year's day.

And then k a't the town's main intersection (where the flag pole was planted), we spotted her across the street. "Hey, Berniece," one of our group yelled over, "can you practice after supper tonight?" v .. i She called back,"! can It. tonight. I've ^gotta wash beer bottles. Dad's gonria pay me a nickel a hundred." Her dad bottled lots of beer and everyone in town knew it. Even before she yelled about it downtown.

Vote Sought for New Gray Jail CIMARRON (HNS) — A petition drive is under way in Cimarron to bring to a vote the proposed funding of a new Gray county jail. County commissioners have approved a resolution calling for a one mill levy to finance the construction of the jail. Total cost of the facility will not exceed $150,000. If the petition campaign is successful, the resolution is expected to be submitted to a county-side vote by Aug. 17 and would probably be conducted during the Aug. 3 primary election. Workers Endangered WASHINGTON—Millions of American workers are exposed to deadly, poisonous substances on the job. Yet the effort to save their health, perhaps even their lives, has been seriously hampered by cutbacks and red tape. The best estimate is that one out of every three workers in this country will come down with occupational diseases. Toxic substances, according to another estimate, causes 100,000 job-related deaths each year. . Yet even this disturbing death figure is now considered far too low. Labor Dept. experts have just learned that, most of the nation's doctors are unable to diagnose occupational diseases. This means that most deaths from occupational diseases go unreported. The Labor experts have also discovered that occupational injuries account for an alarming 96 per cent of all reported illnesses at nonagricultural places- of work. Yet, industrial plants provide few health services and almost no environmental monitoring. The Labor Dept. has appealed to Congress for more help to cope with the problem. Of 2,000 industrial hygienists in the United States, only 135 work for the department. Training programs have also been cut back. As one Labor official told our associate Marc Smolonsky: "There is an appalling lack of manpower." Meanwhile, the problem steadily gets worse, not better, as thousands of new chemicals are developed each year in factories across the country. The department has tried to set standards for these toxic chemicals as they appear. But President Ford, whose main emphasis is upon cutting costs, requires an inflationary impact statement before new standards can be put into effect. This has slowed the regulatory effort. Nevertheless, a small, unsung staff is fighting a heroic battle to safeguard workers from occupational disease and death. Hundreds of thousands will die, however, because the problem has been given a low priority. 21 25 45 48 54 s 22 23 41 32 2fe 49 58 42 38 50 47 28 39 35 29 40 51 56 59 52 CRYPTOQUIP b-/y COVANVMIANI VMSG YMNU NMEG MI IUG TES-YTAC MOYIATC Yesterday's Cryptoquip — WILL TRUE ALLERGENS ALWAYS RESULT IN ALLERGY?. .,,-,. ... .......
