Nice to Know 'Our Dirt' Is Clean EDITOR'S NOTE — This is the second of a series of newsletters written by Alan Ebright of Lyons and Quentin Hope of Garden City, summer interns in the office of Congressman Keith Sebelius. Dirt seems to be a popular topic in Washington these days. Washington dirt, however, is different from the Kansas soil we are used to. It is possible to be covered from head to toe with Kansas dirt and with minimum effort and a little soap and water, it can all be washed down the drain. Not so with the Washington grime. The Washington dirt is of a different variety. It's in the air, in the Potomac River, and more recently in the rooms of a few Congressmen. This is a kind of grime that is very hard to wash off. Many people spend so much time trying to "get the dirt out," they get little else done. Actually, the people who are critical of this dirty business and are pointing fingers of blame at the whole Congress should realize ' only> a tiny minority has been involved. As interns in the office of Congressman Sebelius, we have observed that Sebelius and his staff are elbows-deep in Kansas dirt and well protected from the Washington grime. As interns, one of .the questions we had was, "What access do we of the Big First have to the Congressman?" The answer has been obvious and reassuring. This is an open office with everyone both heard and answered. Congressman Sebelius is primarily concerned -with the Country Bumpkin Jamboree Rranrlprl Finanrial LJIdl IVJWV'I I II Id I lOldl dirt of the agricultural variety. Coming from a farm background, it has been interesting to see what Washington's view is of- Kansas farming. References are still made to the 1930s version of the Land of Oz. However, there is a growing respect for the industry the farmer represents. We have had fun opening the eyes of city folks who can't tell the difference between corn and wheat, to the realities of the huge capital expenditures that go into a successful farm operation. But, the sad fact is that there is much ignorance about basic farm economics. Page 14 Garden City Telegram Wednesday, July 14,1976 As our country becomes more urbanized, our voice in Congress is heard less. It is important that we inform and support our representatives that they may speak with greater accuracy and strength in our behalf. We are a great industry dependent on Kansas .dirt, of which we can be rightly proud. No doubt, Washington grime will continue to be uncovered as the cleansing process goes on here. But, we can feel safe, knowing that "our dirt" is clean. One Killed, 30 Hurt in RR Crash A recent jamboree conducted by the Country Bumpkins citizen band radio club was a financial success, sponsors say. A percentage of the proceeds will be contributed by the club for kidney treatment facilities at St. Catherine Hospital. Trophies were awarded to the oldest CBer (a 73-year-old man from Wichita); the CBer traveling the farthest (a woman from California); an 18-wheeler coming the farthest (Big Al 747 of Tyrone, Okla. from Phoenix, Ariz.;) and the club with the most members present, (Dodge City Emergency Team). Winners of the penny-a-vote contest for "King and Queen Bucketmouth" were Meat Man (P. C. Michel) and Lady Outlaw (Marianne Rem- schner). Highlight of the day, said the sponsors, was the baby beautiful contest, in which contestants were dressed as babies. This was judged by applause of the crowd, and Big Bob (Bob Strahan), attired as Baby Huey, was the winner. An added attraction this year was a dunking board. The grand prize of .beef contributed by Ehresman Packing Co., was won by Louis Zirkel Jr. A television, donated by Laughlin Electric was won by Jones Packing Co. of Dodge City. Mr. Shelby of Holcomb was winner of the Rome stereo from Arnold's TV- and Sound, and Kenneth Childers, Oakley, won the coffeemaker*donated by Clyde Sober, manager of Gibson Discount Center. NEW CANAAN, Conn. (AP) — One passenger was killed and 30 others injured in the collision of two commuter trains about 50 yards from the station here. The four-car train that left Grand Central Station in New York at 5:27 p.m. Tuesday for New Canaan, about an hour's run. As the train approached New .Canaan, a si£-car train discharged passengers and moved south on the same track toward a siding. The engineer and trainman apparently saw the crash coming and ran through the train to warn the some 300 passengers. The impact left one woman pinned in the wreckage for 2V 2 hours. Elizabeth S. Hadden, 19, of New Canaan was listed in critical condition early today at nearby Norwalk Hospital. Nancy B. Siegel, 36, of New Canaan was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital, police said. ConRail spokesman Bob Benish said the most likely cause of the accident was a signal failure. Miller, Kent Sinclair, Brenda Pierce.
