§ Golisburg Register-Moil, Qelesbufg, Friday, July 27, 1973 IJedlerda aUidcarad ... ZJodau'd Z/t By JEAN BARNES Land prospectors are sharpening their shovels now that good Weather is here. They aren't hunting for precious metals. Their quest is for glass. Prospector Larry Keller is a beginning bottle collector. Yet, with his enthusiasm and ingenuity, he is well on the way to building a good and valuable collection. At the same time, he is helping his wife.Cathy start a collection of small perfume and cosmetic bottles. This is being done at a mint-! mum of cost, according to; Keller, who explained that he| had purchased only one or two featured bottles of the many he displays. The remainder have been found by prospecting and trading with other prospectors. Before beginning their prospecting the couple studied their city's history and growth pattern. This enabled them to select the most probable site for profitable prospecting. Bottles found by prospectors include light blue milk of magnesia bottle dated 1906; round bottom, blob-top soda pop bottle and an amber poison bottle which has sharp barbs on three corners, dated 1890. As with meat prospectors Keller was reluctant to reveal his locations but was enthusiastic to share bis experiences. Once he chooses a site be uses a metal detector to pinpoint the exact location for his excavations. The theory "where there is metal you wiH also find glass" is pretty well proven So, you look for old dumps and newer landfill areas. The area to be explored is staked out and the digging begins. Most often bottles can be found just below the earth's surface, but you might have to dig as deep as four feet to find anything. What kind of bottles do you look for? Surprisingly, almost any old bottle is collectable. The secret is to know the marks of age. The Kellers have not skipped their homework and talk knowledgeably about mold marks, a sheared lip and "Hutchinson'' stopper. And, while they are building their collection they also are accumulating a small library of reference material to help with identification. In many fields of collecting it is the craftsman's skill and artistic merit that determines the value of an item. In the bottle collecting fieW this is not true. Bottles were made for commercial purposes, to be used and then discarded. If it were possible to count the number of bottles made, even in the past century, the figure would be astronomical. However, age, rarity, condition, shape and color are the determining factors in evaluating bottles. Dark purple and amber glass bottles are considered the best with milk white and cobalt blue ranking second in worth.

Presidents Find 'High Priest 9 Role DifficultPartToPlay Successfully By LOUIS CASSELS United Press International One constructive result of the Watergate affair could be a renewed respect among the American people for the wis* dotn of their Founding Fathers Of God and Mat The men who wrote the U.S Constitution decreed that church and state should remain forever separate. In a deliberate break with the British system under which the monarch also is head of the church, the architects of the American way sought to draw a clear line of demarcation between political power and spiritual leadership. Unfortunately, this concept, which seemed so important to men like Jefferson and Madison, has never really grasped the popular imagination. Throughout our nation 's history, beginning with George Washington, Americans have had a tendency to expect their presidents to be more thia chief executives of the government fhey have sought to make theif presidents serve alio as high priests, personal embodiments and symbols of the nation's ethical ideals and aspirations. Presidential Mystisjee A very few presidents — Abraham Lincoln is one who comes readily to mind —have had the extraordinary combination of attributes necessary to fulfill this dual role. ; But very often the cherished national myth of president-as- high-priest has come into harsh conflict with the fact that most presidents are merely successful politicians who have clawed their way to the top' by compromise, expedience,' ruth* lessness or luck. A not*! insignificant number have been hack politicians, with no discernible qualifications even for political leadership. They were catapulted ifitt the White House by death or assassination after they had Hen fitter casoauy omen nt «ne jnoe minding role of vice resident Altnough this has been going on for nearly » years, Americans still insist on surrounding the office of President of the United States with a kind of religious mystique, and expecting its inhabitant to "set a high example" of moral rectitude and personal piety for the nation. This is why presidents rarely seen in church before Inauguration Day suddenly become ardent churchgoers .once they're in the White House. It didn't start with Lyndon B Johnson and Richard M. Nixon; George Washington did the; same thing, for the same reason. He felt, he recorded in his private papers, that churchgoing now was "expected" of him. Sinners Ootaamber Saints troth is that the nunSe^of taints who've • been elected ,« _i has teen greatly exceeded fey the number of men to such hurhan failings as adulter deceit, double-crossing and using the power of government to obtain wealth, perquisites of prerogatives for themselves, their families and their friends. If Watergate has made one thing perfectly clear, it is that Americans are naive to assume there is some mystical aura of righteousness about the presidency which automatically assures a high standard of ethical sensitivity in the White House staff. Presidents are NOT high priests. They are victorious politicians. And the people who work for them and wield power in their name are just as 4* to be liars or crooks as they are to be incorruptible statesmen. They all bear watching at all times.
