]¥EWS-HERALD 1 News Item: Soviet Union Denounces Sesame Street as Latest Example of U.S. Cultural lm |3erialism I 123 W. STH ST. .........»......,..............763-7621 Panama City, Florida A Florida Freedom IVewspaper 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. We believe that freedom is a gift from God and not a political grant from government. Freedom is neither license nor anarchy. It is self control. No more. No less. It must be consistent with the truths expressed in such great moral guides as the Coveting Commandment, the Golden Rule and the Declaration of Independence. 1 Business Held In Low Esteem While public attention seems much concerned with Watergate, the public confidence in "big business" remains at a low point, representing the smallest confidence percentage, according to a recent Gallup Poll. This was pointed out in a column by Anthony Harrigan, executive vice president of the U.S. Industrial Council. Mr. Harrigan said he finds this deeply disturbing because big business provides millions of jobs and is central to the nation's industrial strength. This newspaper has pointed out -for years that the things people want and need come not from political government but from the business and industrial communities. Political government provides taxes, war and restrictions while the private enterprise sector takes care of your wants and needs. Welfare programs may provide temporary relief, but they do so simply by taking away from others. Mr. Harrigan, we think, lays the blame for this loss of confidence in "big business" properly in part at the nation's school system. "For a generation, "big business" hasn't received a fair shake from writers of textbooks and from the "educational establishment" generally. In school, youngsters learn about the "robber barons" of the 19th century and early 20th century. They don't get an accurate picture of the pioneering work of American industrialists. "Texts that spell out the accomplishments of the business system are few. Recently, however, I read John Chamberlain's superb book The Enterprising Americans: A Business History Of The United States (Harper & Row, Publishers, 95 cents). It should be must reading for everv high school senior, for it explains how the American business system made possible the affluence our people enjoy today. It is an illuminating book that explains, for example, how even the darkest days of the 1930s new industrial enterprises were being spawned and new technologies developed. "Americans are so accustomed to the myriad products produced by business that they take them for granted. They forget that the jet planes, the synthetics, computers, wonder drugs and a thousand other things are the product of the inventiveness and managerial skills of the American business world." While we subscribe to the basic thrust of Mr. Harrigan's commentary, we think on balance he should have reported that part of the problem lies in the tendency of some segments of "big business" to align themselves with the political governments of the nation. Perhaps in fairness here we should consider the possibility that business leaders took the position that "if you can't lick 'em, join 'em." The joining has helped produce this lack of confidence, and Mr. Harrigan and his industrial council would do well to conduct an educational program among themselves. When we read about the millions of dollars poured into political campaigns we can't help but conclude that the leaders of private enterprise are placing greater emphasis on the worth of political leadership than they are upon their own. Yet they protest that "big business isn't getting a fair shake. It seems to us they are financially supporting the instrument of their destruction. If they ever put their mouth where their money is, the collapse will come in short order. Foreign News Commentary ByPHILNEWSOM UPl Foreign News Analyst When King Faisal of Saudi Arabia visited Washington in 1971, he gently prodded the United States to bring pressure on Israel to withdraw from the Arab territories she seized in the 1967 war. Today, a steel tip has been added to the prod. That's because in the world's energy crisis, Saudi Arabia is a super power. And what in 1971 may have seemed an academic question, in 1973 becomes grim reality. As the United States grapples with inflation and goes through two devaluations of the dollar, the ideological and economic goals of the Arab oil producing states merge and become one. This is especially true of King Faisal. Saudi Arabia played no active role in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. But as protector of two of Islam's holy places, Medina and Mecca, Faisal also feels a responsibility for Israeli-held old Jerusalem. His opposition to Israel therefore takes on the aspects of a holy war. Saudi Arabia long has been regarded as one of the United States' few friends in the Middle East. But uncertainties effecting the world's leading currencies, especially the dollar, have injected a new element into the picture. Saudi Arabia and other Arab oil producing states are beginning to believe their oil is better off in the ground, especially since oil revenues already are piling up faster than they can be used effectively in the development of the exporting countries. In the face of American pressure to nearly double her present export of around eight million barrels of oil per day, Saudi Arabia is dropping her velvet glove approach and stating bluntly the relationship she sees between the export of oil to the United States and the role she believes the U.S. should play in the Middle East. In an interview with the National Broadcasting Company, Faisal declared: "We are deeply concerned that if the United States does not change its policy in the Middle East and continues to side with Zionism, then, I am afraid, such course of action will affect our relations with our American friends because it will place us in an untenable V2 PRICE SALE pmm nm SHOPPING CENTER DR. LAWRENCE E. LAMB Which foods have potassium? Letter Box To the Editor: As reported to your paper, the Lynn Haven Zoning Board considered an ordinance which would have the city annex the PROPOSED multi-housing units. I have no objections to the annexation of any property to Lynn Haven. I do object along with the majority of Lynn Haven residents to multi-family dwellings. There is an ordinance on the books that forbids it so to get around this why should the zoning board want the multi-units built and then annex them to the city. This is not illegal but it certainly does not appear in the best interest of the citizens for which a zoning board is I I¥«wfi >Herald I Published Daily and Sunday by Flbrida Freedom Newspapers Inc.

Mr. Farrell, head of the zoning board, says this will not affect AAA zoning but will merely be AAA-MF (multi-family) added to the present zoning. We have no objection to Mr. Harlan annexing and building according to our present zoning laws. Mr. Harlan says these dwellings would be built to rent to retired people for in the neighborhood of two hundred dollars a month. These dwellings will be placed across from a junior high school on a small portion of land, 130 some odd feet by 175 feet. Our present zoning laws are good and it does not -seem fair to so many citizens of Lynn Haven to please so few and allow them to make expense of depreciating many homes. The next city commission meeting is Sept. 18. Sincerely, Alice Weiss By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb — Would you please tell me what potassium is? My doctor tells me I am low in it and tells me to eat lots of bananas and drink orange juice. What other food is helpful? What does it do to your body? Dear Reader— Potassium is one of the basic chemical elements. Everything we know is made up of chemical elements. Such as oxygen, hydrogen, carbon, sodium, )otassium, chlorine, zinc, ead, gold, and so on. There are a little over 100 elements. Our entire body is made of combinations of these chemical elements, so are our cause edema, swelling and other problems. Many medicines are used to eliminate sodium through the kidney and, with it, eliminate the accumulation of water. Some of these medicines also eliminate potassium, and then we lose potassium from the cells. In order to maintain good health, one needs a normal amount of potassium inside the cells. These chemicals are necessary for normal function of the cells. The heart muscle won't contract normally, or act normally, if you have a deficiency in potassium. If you have too much potassium the electrical activity of the heart may even be stopped. There is a proper balance of household furniture, buildings, almost everything in the body automobiles, etc. It is this fact that amuses me when someone tells me that something is harmful because it is - "'"-^ "a chemical," for example a an easy dollar at the ingredient in a food, of depreciatmg so Everything we know is "a chemical." This is true whether it's part of a plant, part of an animal, distilled water, spring water, purified water, medicine, poison, "organic food," a food additive or anything else you might want to mention. In the fluid part of the body, the water in the bloodstream and outside of the cells contains a small amount of sodium which is an element and is the same sodium element that we have in ordinary table salt called sodium chloride. We have about the same amount of sodium salt in our body water as exists in sea water. Inside the cell membrane we have relatively little sodium, and, instead, we have potassium which can occur as a salt called potassium chloride. Both soclium and potassium belong to the same group of chemicals and have a number of similar characteristics. When the body retains too much sodium we tend to retain CXCCS.S fluid and this can Dear Sir, Can someone — anyone — give me an acceptable explanation of why the jar of honey bought (recently) in a local grocery store should have a mark-up sticker of $1,36 over the stamped $1.19? Obviously the store did not buy the honey at the increa.sed price, and from the number of jars on the shelf with mark-up .stickers, the store i.s making what I would call "exces.s profit." I believe this i.s a common practice. But I still would like to know why and how. And when did the bees go on strike for higher wages, anyhow? Thank you, M. H. Williams Panama City and this includes sodium and potassium. Potassium, as a salt, is commonly used as a salt substitute for people who need to avoid sodium, A deficiency of either sodium or potassium can cause a lot of vague symptoms, including excessive fatigue. A large glass of orange juice three times a day will usually provide about the same amount of potassium as prescribed in most medical conditions. Orange juice is probably the best natural source of potassium and contains considerably more potassium per weight than do bananas and most other fruits. In general, however, the fruits are an excellent source of potassium. I usually favor instructing people to drink three large glassed of orange iuice a day if they need additional potassium in their intake, unless, of course, there is some medical reason why they can't use orange juice.

Your Horoscope By Jeans Dixon position in the Arab world and vis-a-vis the countries which Zionism seeks to destroy.'' Last weekend, Libya nationalized the last six Western oil companies, five of them U.S.owned, operating on its territory. Oil sources in Tripoli said similar measures may be forthcoming by the Persian states, Saudi Arabia among them. Closely tied with Saudi Arabia's review of her ties with the United States are her improving relations with Egypt. • Faisal,^ who is in active charge of his country's foreign relations, has used his oil wealth in the last year to win African states away from Israel. He choose to conclude an $800 million contract for Saudi Arabia's ; air defenses with Britain rather than with the United States. He has discussed with France the purchase of Mirage jet fighters instead of the Phantoms he first discussed buying from the United States. FRIDAY.

Aries [March 21 - April 19]: Being a little off center stage is helpful, if you can do it. Adopt a less-personal, wait-and-see approach as you wind up the workweek. There's news this evening. Taurus (April 20 • May 201: Just as you're in the final stages of current projects, new factors have to be oonsi^red. Nothing for it but to take things apart as far back as necessary to incorporate changes. Gemhii [May 21-June 20]: If you're doing or going for the first time, get advice from somebody Awlho's been there. But remember you are not the same sort of person. It is well to question all details. Cancer [June 21 • July 22]: So much of what seems reasonable now is based on assumed "facts" that are not quite true, or which may change. Career prospects are cloudy. Don't try to rush anything. Leo [July 23-Aug. 22]: It isn't only mechanical or physical obstacles that are prominent today, it's hasty, temperamental people. See that you are within reason. Concentrate on sound results. Virgo [Aug, 23 - Sept. 22]: It's not your fault that others don't follow your logic, but it may be if you bicker over arrangements.

The chaillenge of afternoon-evening requires resourcefulness, quick thinking. Sagittarius [Nov. 22 - Dec. 21]: Stay with well-worn and familiar habits today, showing care and courtesy, expecting little in return. Later hours are restless, better spent on personal matters. Capricorn [Dee. 22-Jan. 19]: Keep things simple by offering no extra criticism or side issiles. Redeem your promises, pay your bills, make definite arrangements you can maintain. Aquarius [Jan. 20 - Feb. 18]: Be consistent and remain steady on the Job despite tendencies to distraction over emotional stress. There is no way to get at the cause of your concern just now.
