Like many young men 1 enlisted In the United States Navy believing that I owed a debt to my country and to the world to rid it of the menance of facism, nazism and socialism. I was face to face with death in the engagements at Leyte, Llngayen and Borneo while serving In the amphibious forces of the United States Navy. "My experiences, and scenes 1 witnessed, are so vivd I cannot reconcile them with the determined effort by the group of Washington bureaucrats to fasten upon us Identical form of paternalistic regimentation that we fought to destroy. "I have learned, by hard experience, that you do not get anything In this life for nothing. We cannot continue to operate our government by deficit spending. We cannot expect to enjoy bene- fiti without paying taxes and in the end tear down our democratic form of government and substitute national socialism as practiced by Hitler. "I learned that Independent, free, unfettered man or woman looking for only the things earned through personal efforts is tha happiest. I also learned this same man or woman does not want to be the slave of government or dependent upon it." _ r ^^_—^^_^^» Winchester High to Sell Tourney Tickets CARROLLTON, Jan. 7.
