Comments With Stoney "1 wish I knew what to get for Gus." Editorial Comments - The Friendly Government Doctor? The King Anderson bill on hospital and medical aid for the aged smacks of socialism and if passed will be a stepping stone on the way to a communistic government. And we feel that the majority of the elderly people are not in favor of it. Think ahead a few short years, when you will fit into this age group. Do you want the government telling you what doctor or clinic you must go to for relief of your aches and pains? What if you don't like that doctor? Will you have faith in him just because the president or some other top brass says he's a good doctor? In many cases, faith in the family doctor can mean the difference between an early recovery and a lingering illness. All of us as we grow older become more set in our ways. If we have faith in a doctor, even the aspirin he gives us seems to have more effect than it would if given by a total stranger. Some people lose faith in a doctor and switch to another who might possibly make a different diagnosis of the illness and bring relief. With social medicine this wouldn't be possible. If the government M. D. is wrong in his observations, eventually you will be listed as another of his mistakes . . on boot hill. And as for the elderly being able to pay their medical and hospital bills, most of them have laid aside a iittle money and are also drawing social security. In a crisis, relatives, friends, the county or the state helps out. , It would probably be amazing to ,-.11 of us to know how many bills the general practitioners write off each year because the patients had no funds and were absolutely unable to pay. Yet the doctors, who stand this loss, prefer to keep it that way rather than to allow the aged to come more under the rule of the government possibly those who can alTord to pay help to make up some of this deficit, but we haven't heard too much complaining there, either. We can think of many things to better occupy the president's mind. Unemployment, for instance. With automation on the increase, and small farmers on the decrease, more people are going to be in need of jobs . . . and where will they find them? And still we throw our doors open wide to people from foreign countries who wish to make their home here. More unemployment. Let's take care of those people who CAN take care of themselves if given the opportunity to work. We might feel sorry for 100 people in another part ol town . . . hut we aren't going to invite them to set up permanent residence in our home. Homemakers Dateline by Dorothye E. Busching Fayette County HOME ECONOMIST for storing these tools and a plan for everyone's cooperation in using them will make the outdoor cooking more fun for everyone. The time spent planning a place for keeping this equipment will save much more time in weeks to come looking for the misplaced or lost item!

IT PAYS TO ADVERTISE WITH LEADER WANT ADS The number of youngsters in Fayette who seem to locate trouble without too much difficulty stems to IK> considerably less than in nvmy communities that we know of. But the number is increasing. No major crimes have been committed, and perhaps they never will be. but by leaving minor items go unnoticed the way is paved to more serious problems. And with more than 800 students from all over the nation added to our own group of local youngsters, problems are bound to arise. Perhaps this newspaper has been neglecting its duty as a public servant by not publishing the local court cases and the names of those involved Since the first of the year we have been publishing the court cases from the court house in West Union, and beginning with the first issue in June we will publish the cases from Mayor's court and the Justice of the Peace court of Lysle Wooldridge. In publishing these" court cases, everyone will be treated alike. That is, if your name or ours appears on the court docket, it will also appear- in the paper. The court dockets are open for public inspection, and there will he no favor;: granted in leaving a name out. In publishing these cases we are not picking on any one person or group. That is the reason we are advising our readers in advance, so the stories will not come as a shock. And the best way to keep one's name out of this story is to not get involved in trouble. — •— The following few lines were handed to us by Bill Dilley, and should make every employer realize that he is not the only one who has problems: As everyone knows, a store manager has practically nothing to do — that is, nothing to do except: to decide what is to be done; to tell somebody to do it: to listen to reasons why it should not be done; or why it should be clone by somebody else; or why it should be done in a different way; to follow up to see if the thing has been done; to follow up a second time; to discover that it has been done, but done incorrectly; to conclude that as long as it has been done, it may as well l>e left as it is; to consider how much simpler and better it would have been if he. had done it himself in the first place but to realize that such an idea would strike at the very Men's work pants containing synthetic fibers may be the best buy in the long run, even though they cost more than familiar all- cotton work pants. Recent tests conducted show that pants containing synthetic actually give more days of wear for every dollar invested than did all cotton pants. The fabric blend of Dacron ployest- er and rayon wore the longest, with nylon reinforced cotton pants next and all cotton pants the least durable. D-E-B Do your home improvement plans for summer call for improving the kitchen storage situation, building a home workshop, or building a room divider between the kitchen and dining area? Whatever your plans might be, the book "Home Improvement Plans' available for $1.00 from the Ex tension Office, Fayette, contains detailed drawings and directions for the carpenter or do-it-yourself fan. It is a good book to have on hand when the time for some changes in your home arrives. D-E-B Even though parents may doubt it at times, a child takes his parents' praise and scoldings pretty much to heart. But, because a child's experiences are so limited he is apt to misinterpret the reason you must discipline him at times. It is pretty easy for him to think ' of punishment as a sign that he is losing your love. That's why it is so important when he mis behaves, that you make it clear that you disapprove of what he did and not of him. Don't use the th'reat of not loving him to pun ish! D-E-B In George Washington's day bread-making was a. full time pro ject for the home-makers. Old- time recipes called for starting the bread one day, allowing it to rise overnight and finishing it the next day. Yeast by no means certain to give perfect results and the capricious ways of wood stoves provided another element of surprise. Today tested recipes, foolproof yeast and regulated ovens help make yeast-baking a joy for brides and grandmothers alike. Makes one wonder what tomorrow will bring! o-e-B • • Are the young men and fathers in your home as clothes conscious as sisters and mothers? The "slim look" predominates in younjr'men's fashions today from, shoes to trousers, toy ties and the natural look in jacket shoulder^, Spring and summer' men's •/ashions.are featuring more colors and plaids than ever before, Coordinating the right elements of the. wardrobe (or good overall appearance is sometimes a problem for these "men". We must help them realize that smart dressing is not "sissy stuff". D-E-B Pima cotton is finding its way into sheets. One hundred percent of this fine long staple cotton is used in some luxury quality 200 count sheets. In popular priced combed percale sheets, pima cotton is used in smaller percentages. The actual percent of pima cotton used will be stated on the package. D-E-B As the season for outdoor living and cooking get into full swing, it is time to stop and take inventory of the tools and equipment you will be using. Having a system Vote For William H.

Al)out 3 million travelers visit Boulder ( or Hoover ) Dam yearly. In hottest summer, part of the parking area is a hundred-in- theshade, and no shade. A considerable number of pets, mostly dogs and cats, have died in the hake oven heat with in parked cars. The SPCA has raised quite a fuss, and demanded that something be done. There is now quite a hassle going on, in the department, whether to build a $5,000 plain dog house, or a $20,000 air-conditioned house. So far, nobody has even considered buying some posts, poultry netting, a hand gate or two, and building a pen under the nearest shade, then pipe some water into it. And that is America, nowadays. c-b-c Whens Christopher Columbus started out. he didn't know where he was going. When he finally got back home, he didn't know where he had been. And he made the entire round trip on borrowed money. Boy oh boy, could the the Kennedy Administration use him in Washington, these days, c-b-c Next Monday is Primary Election day in Iowa, once again. This small homely man takes some pride in the fact he has never — By Reuben missed a Primary Election, since voting our first Republican primary ballot, the first Monday of June. 1922. We also take personal pride in the fact that we have never yet voted a "straight ticket" in November. We still maintain that any fair to middling animal trainer could readily teach a chimpanzee to mark the same circle on a ballot each and every time. The fundamental purpose of the Primary Election was to get nominations away from the "steamroller" tactics of political-party conventions, and put nomination in the hands of the people. That purpose is badly mained by public apathy, too many primary election days. The fewer who attend the election, the easier for n "machine" or clique to control, in effect, by getting their block of voters out to vote. The hard simple truth is, there is mighty little wrong with county, state, or federal government today, that is not. in the true analysis, the fault of the people. And the people who didn't bother to vote, most of all. So let us be out next Monday, rain or shine, corn cultivating weather or not. It is NOT just a privilege, it is an obligation of citizenship. Let us NOT forget that. third. The contest was open to staff members of the Fayette high school paper. —•— 30 Years Ago — 27 seniors graduated from the Fayc tie high school this year.
