NEWS-HERALD, Panama City, Flu., Monday, Juno 24,1W4 NEWS-HERALD 1 "More, More!" U3 5TH ST; M .M.......M.T«3-TWI Panama City, Florida A Florida Freedom Newspaper This newspaper is dedicated to furnishing information to our readers so that they can better promote and preserve their own freedom and encourage others to see its blessings. Only when man is free to control himself and all he produces, can he develop to his utmost capabilities. Hi 9k 8$ Si IV $ « w '.V % 85 We believe that freedom is a gift from God and not a w political grant from government. Freedom is neither license |i , nor anarchy. It is self control. No more. No less. It must i| • be consistent with the truths expressed in such great moral $ i guides as t the Coveting Commandment, the Golden Rule ;|: I and the Declaration of Independence. j$ Graduating, Job-Hunting Graduates of high schools and colleges again are receiving seasonal advice. A good part of it has to do with the job market — whether it's good or bad. This is a generality of little practical benefit to the student, either spreading gloom or raising undue expectation. What the student really wants to know is whether he will be able to get a job. That doesn't depend directly on the big economic picture. Rather it depends upon whether the young person can persuade the prospective employer that the firm can turn a profit on the deal. Usually, a student will be short on experience. Just as often though, he will not be totally devoid of it. Any kind of job experience counts. Typing skills, waiting on tables, pumping gas, boxing groceries, warehousing—any kind of similar experience—tell a prospective employer that the applicant knows something about work. Attitude also serves to persuade an employer. If he sees a friendly smile, the employer has reason to believe that the applicant will be encouraging and helpful to customers. A smile means "I like you." Another test of attitude is whether the attitude listens to what the job interviewer tells him. Many times younger applicants are so self-conscious that they do not listen well but instead lose themselves trying to think up things to say. If the applicant listens well, the what-to-say problem is automatically solved. A few shrewd references to what the prospective employer said will convince him that you are the type of person who listens well, who hears instructions when they are given. The process is very much like quoting portion's of a professor's dissertation back to him in order to win a better grade. Job hunting is a numbers game. The more times you apply the better chance you have. In fact, the more times you apply, the more experience you have in job seeking. Patience (persistence) worketh experience; and experience, hope, as the Scripture says. More irons in the fire are the surest cure for the normal depression that follows when one iron gets cold. A little bit of gloom when looking for work is par for the course. Don't let a turn-down wipe the smile off your face. That let-down feeling after a hard day of pounding the pavement is normal. Indeed 1 you would be a physiological exception, if it didn't hit you. Get some rest, adjust that smile and go, go, go. Eventually you may have the pleasant but uncomfortable task of deciding which of two or more jobs to choose from. A wise counselor once said he always took the first job that came along and then went out to get a better one. A person who already is working is a more confident applicant. Employers are only human; they like to hire away from some other guy. There are 12 cardinal rules for job hunting. They are smile, smile, smile, apply, apply, apply, listen, listen, listen, and smile, smile, smile. New Meat Market The Wall Street Journal has another big story out dealing with meat prices. Not the high price of meat, but the dropping price of meat. Just 10 months ago, butchers' shelves were bare and housewives were marching in the street. For awhile the government tried placing controls at points along the production line. The controls didn't make any more meat than we had before. Ultimately the controls phased out. Then the American consumer instituted his peculiar brand of price regulation, he simply cut back on the amount of meat he had been eating. In the meantime, farmers rushed feeding, hoping to take advantage of what they thought would be higher livestock prices. The result is, the country has more supply at lower prices. The Journal quoted Chicago choice ,beef at 65 cents a pound, down from 91 cents on Feb. 6. Pork and poultry have followed suit. That is how the free market — we mean the almost-free market — can function. It doesn't take all the problems out of life. Neither does anything else. But it tends to file off the sharp edges. Question Box Question: I subscribe to The News-Herald because it publishes local and general news. Why was there nothing in your paper about the Bilderberger's meeting in Megeve, France? Liberty Lobby reports on the "Secret World Summit Conference: 1974 Meeting." You will see how the Bilderbergers plan to ruin everything in this free country and take over, which will include your paper, your people and all of your money, rights, etc. I hope you will support Liberty'Lobby's effort to uncover this scandal. Mrs. E.L. Irvine. Answer: The News-Herald does not cover a great many meetings of private organizations, including those of the so-called Bilderbergers, the Council of Foreign Relations, and many others. We also do not cover meetings of the Philadelphia Society, which seems to be as much . feared by the collectivist left, as the CFR and the Bilderbergers, are feared by the collectivist right. There is no question that there are a large number of wealthy and influence-wielding individuals in the world who are interested in some sort of one-world master government, including most if not all of the Bilderbergers and their ilk. And a good many of them want this to develop because they think they know best what is good for the people. They seek to influence politicians to follow their guidance. At the same time, there are others of the so-called right wing who want to influence the politicians to force all people into a strictly nationalist type of society, but collectivist also. We do not subscribe to either group's views. We believe in individualism, in self-responsibility and self-control. Thus we favor as little government as possible, and that government limited only to protecting individual rights to life and property. If it is limited thus, there will be nothing to take over by the advocates of one-world internationalism or the promoters of nationalistic socialism. Meantime, we Will- try to inform our readers to the best of our ability about the growth of government, leading to loss of individual rights and responsibility, and to inform them as best we can of local, state and national happenings. We will not invade private meetings of the Bilderbergers, the Communist party functions, nor of the John Birch Society or other sessions from which the public is excluded. V4 PR LAWRENCE E.

Taurus I April 20-May 20]: Daily living habits flow so smoothly you take them for granted. Seek new contacts, learn another skill. Close friends are all busy generating scheme s—let them alone! (iemini |May 21-June 201: Attend to important issues - early as your day includes many pleasing distractions. Be sure anything you write today is strictly the truth. Cancer (June 2l-July 221: Amid generally good news there's an item that later comes to mean something serious to you. Correct any errors at once. Correspondence needs attention. Leo | July 23-Aug. 221: Temptation to speculate is strong. Projects intended to sharpen your public image do just that, but not quite the way you'd want. It's best lo play it straight.

It occurs in a publisher's brochure advertising a new textbook about the principles of editorial writing. This textbook, we are told, contains more than 200 specimen editorials selected from newspapers in 37 states. Then we are comforted by this assurance: "Care has been exercised to avoid selection of editorials whose contents would not be understood by college readers." For what promising majors in journalism is this textbook intended? Will the daily editorials of the future be written by people unable to comprehend the thought and style of editorials in the more serious newspapers of 1974? It is nalistic technique. They complain that they never have been asked, let alone required, to read any really important books; sometimes they ask me to provide them with a list of suggested readings for their private improvement. A quarter of a century ago, when I was inducted into the Army, I was tested for literacy. The test was brief. A sergeant, holding up a daily newspaper, asked me, "Do you think you could read a part of this newspaper?" I replied that I thought I could. "Okay, you pass," said the sergeant. Requirements no more strict, I suspect, prevail for admission to a good many schools of jour- 1 "activist" young people in Jour nalism: neophytes who report the news as if they were writing editorials, and write editorials (when permitted) as if they were haranguing a lynch mob. To write a decent editorial, or even to read one, it is necessary to be tolerably educated — which includes self-education. Where does one begin to acquire a tolerable education, if the curriculum in journalism is technique mostly? Often I suggest to earnest inquirers that they commence by reading two slim books by Sir Arthur Quiller - Couch— "The Art of Reading" and "The Art of Writing." If you. take Quiller - Couch's advice, you can write a sound editorial Letters To Editor Dear Mr. Editor: . We see the T.V. and hear the radio and read in the news media about the wpnderful welcome our president receives when he goes abroad. That is fine if it has any good meaning and gracious gestures. I believe that if I saw a man going down the street handing out twenty dollar bills I could wave at him and cheer him on. The way I see it is that these foreign nations teach their people to wave and cheer a United States president because it will mean money in their pockets. When the president arrives home these nations will no doubt be asking for a few million to do as they please with it. And we, like the idiots we are, will give it to them because they were so nice to our president when he was abroad. One U.S. Senator said that the very moment we stopped giving these nations handouts they would become our greatest enemies — if it is not already that way. They and we call it a loan but a loan that never will be paid back, and never was intended to be paid back. One way for sure to get money from us Is to make a lot of hypocritlc gestures to our visiting dignitaries when they are abroad. It seems that we as a nation are old enough not to be duped in such a way, But we keep on being fooled by them until we are no longer able to give them and then what? No help from those nations who cheered us for our handouts. Thanks Sincerely, Milledge S. Leach 500 W. 18th. St. Waldrop46 Panama City, Fla.

From speaker after speaker at this symposium came complaints of the ignorance of "advocate" and anything more demanding than the funny page, who can? If aspiring journalists can't read editorials, are hardhats supposed to write the editorials of the future? The assumption of the editor of this new textbook, I take it, is that students of journalism simply aren't very bright. However that may be, it is all too true that most students of journalism nowadays are neither liberally nor scientifically educated.
