M6NEAY, •I4H 1 1 i i i i i i I-HH t tin 1 1 1 1 1 "INK in my VEINS" §y MARIAN INMAN 4^ This past week I spent several days in Des Moines for the quarterly board meeting of the Iowa Tuberculosis and Heaun Association, and a meeting of the Evaluation index committee. An evaluation is a healthy procedure and this group is to be commended for it's self study. They are seeking tor efficiency in administration and program, and in their fund raising alive, and checking themselves to make sure they are using these funds the best way to achieve their goal for the eradication of Tuberculosis and Respiratory diseases. While in Des Moinei I had i brief visit with the Irvin Cerbcrs and Jerry Haatet, They were attending the Farmers Grain Dealers meeting and were on their way to the program where they would hear who was chosen winner of the association's speech contest in which four fine young people had participated the evening before, Among these four was young Bridget Quinn of Bancroft, daughter of the Charles Ouinns, 1 h»y were high in their praise of Bridget for the content of her speech and her manner of presentation. Later, i learned that Bridget had placed second in the contest which was wonderful lor she is only 14 years old and a iresliman, while the lad who placed first is 17 and a senior. He had tried before and Bridget ran do so again. This was a wonderful experience for these four young people and I am sure tney will never forget the days spent as guests of the Farmers Grain Dealers. I did not have the privilege of hearing Bridget but I sincerely trust that she will be invited to present her talk at some local or county event. We can b« very proud of these young people and we should appreciate the time and effort they have spent preparing their talks. They are among the leaders ot tomorrow. Let's appreciate them now. Until lately the Supreme Court has meant for me the high court of the land, the court of the people's rights. We could appeal to them for justice, for protection of the primacy 01 the people as set forth in the Constitution of our United States and of our state constitution. Now they have handad down a decree that takes away our right to decide how our own state legislature is to be made up. While basically this '•% question of whether the people are to have a choice, whatever the choice may be this is clouded with battle cries and publicity that pit rural American against urban American, and this smoke screen blinds us to the fact that if we do not do something to protect our primacy, we throw out of the window the American system of government which our forefathers fought and died for. 1 have learned that in this session of Congress, Senator Dirkson (R., 111.) and Congressman McCulloch (D., Ohio) have introduced a bill directing the Courts to keep hands off. This bill, a Constitutional Amendment, will take the matter out of the Court's hands and give it back to the people. Seems to me that if we are to have a choice in deciding how our state legislature is to be made up we will write to our state egislators and U. S. Senators and Congressmen that we want this bill passed. The Revolutionary War was fought.over the principle that all power should rest with the people. Our Declaration of Independence reads that governments derive their powers from the consent of the governed (not from Court decree). ..This is no,Hme.. for^us_.tol be...divided. Whether we live in the country or in the towns, this is our country, our state. We are proud of it and together we produce food and services for a good living standard. This is a time for us to be united for this is the time for us to decide the important question, of whether the people are,to have a choice, whatever that choice may be. Let's let our legislators hear from us, the people. lousewarming Tuesday evening. The Bormanns were given a gift.
