Basically, that opposition has to do With the principal of socialism and the big step Medicare takes in the direction of socialized medicine, But, the profession is opposed to Medicare for the additional reason that Medicare is actually a' misnomer — it. raises expectations that, will not be met in the' plan at all. Actually, this country will have socialized medicine and sooner than many realists believe. Medicare is the first step. When folks finally realize they aren't getting what they were led to believe they would get and arc still paying a big price for it, they'll demand more 'government medicine. Those in public office will have no alternative but to meet those demands and — wham — socialized medicine will be here with all of its government red-tape bureaucratic edicts and dictatorial directives . . . not to mention its back-breaking costs or its inefficient medical service.

Not too many months ago the Republican candidate for President was being accused of "trigger happiness," after suggesting that we bomb Red supply lines in Southeast Asia. Last week two U. S. fighter- bombers were shot down while bombing Red supply lines in Laos, There are further reports, which have not been denied by our government, that such raids have been taking place for about seven months. This would take us back to July, when the Presidential campaign was under way. We have no criticism of President Johnson's decision to order such attacks, but it makes us feel a bit uneasy to realize it has been kept secret so long. Apparently the people did not have the right to know the truth during the campaign. (Pocahontas Democrat) It seems pretty certain that Medicare will become law. President Johnson has announced it to be one of the most urgent pieces of legislation he wants passed and the 2 to 1 Democratic i majority in Washington will surely see that it's done. Unfortunately, Medicare will not be the cure-all that many folks think it is and many will ! be surprised at its cost as well j ; as its limitations. For example, | ; it will not cover doctor bills or j dental bills. Nor does it pay for i I drugs except when given in a j j hospital or nursing home. And, i of course, it will do nothing for those under 65 except tax them heavily. Medicare is essentially a hospitalization plan. And even so, it is restricted. It would pay the whole bill for only 45 days and I the maximum stay for which it j would provide benefits would be i 180 days and then the patient i would have to pay a part of the * bill. Iowa's Medical Aid to the i Aged program, properly policed, ; is a more satisfactory solution to the medical problems of the aged. It's based on a need qualification (rather than being available to everyone 65 or over) and ! is more liberal and inclusive. | The medical profession, which i has pledged itself to serve any the average man shaves two square miles of face. That impressed us. If we caught it right, and we're not at all sure we did, a supplementary fact was offered to the effect that during that same span of time his razor fells some 2'/a million wishkers. Offhand, that doesn't sound like so much of a much. '-]<''• We'd never given the matter much consideration — nor haye we ever endeavored to count our whiskers. But we kind of wonder if we didn't drop a few ciphers in our reception of the figure. But this two square miles of face is a truly startling conception. To envision such an area of face akin to our own is enough to prompt sober contemplation; maybe even enough to make the stomach a bit queazy. ; These slivers of information^ however, we felt should be capitalized on to some extent by the male gender to the edification of their feminine companions through this life of toil and tribulation. '« For all too many years, th"e male has been meekly accepting the assumntipn — assiduously cultivated by the distaff side -j- that the lot of the female incumbent upon our bisexual existence is the hard one. We are told that she bears the cross of the original sin. It is true that most men would not be wilb'ng to negotiate,.,^ switch in physiological burdens, We incline to adjust each to his own and to find a degree of comfort in their familiarity and dependability. f.f- But, sister, hewing whiskers form tow square miles of face is not an inconvenience to be sneered at.

Valentine party Saturday at Lakota school Lakota — A Valentine Corona- .ion dance was held at the School gymnasium Saturday night. Two ;oachers, sally Swanson and Delbert Ritter along with the sopho- nore class were sponsors. The theme was "Cupids Hangout."
