And the fathers will he honored in a variety of ways. In many cases the day will not be one of joy, because there are fathers who are cruel, or who have not led the proper kind of life. But, we hope in most eases the sons and daughters will be able to respect and honor their fathers. Probably we are one of the more fortunate ones, having a father who hardly knows the mean irig of doing wrong. His way of life has svon him the love and ..io.<..u 6 , u..u n-«.u uim LKX respect of everyone that knows Stanley of Gordon Shafer explain (,j m ' tUM- — r..» —i — Creek Bottom Comments One recent wet day we took quite a little drive in the old Chevy. In the afternoon we rested awhile in a certain city'park. As the sun was out, at the time, we took a seat in the shade of a large tree. Soon a sharp-looking fellow, in dark slacks and light sport jacket came along, and sat down: He proved to be one of the most cantankerous characters we have met in quite some time. We have no reason to disbelieve his statements about his years of steer and feeder pig feeding, and having recently sold one large farm for $350 per acre. But EVERYTHING is WRONG with farming, and there is NOTHING that ANYBODY can do about it, so he said. We asked, have you ever attended to top level NFO meeting, and heard Oren Lee President Kennedy's ambitious and far-reaching domestic legislative program may not have precisely fallen on evil days, but it certainly has run into some very' tough sleeding. This is in contrast to his foreign policy, which, aside from questions of detail, has enjoyed support of both the primaries and of such outstanding opposition figures as Mr. Eisenhower and Mr. Nixon. Indeed, except for the tragic Cuban Bay of Pigs fiasco, criticism in this area has been limited and moderate. Not so his domestic proposals. And this is not as some Administration supporters claim surveys indicate that while the President is personally extremely popular, many of his major programs are not Numbers of Congressmen periodically poll their constituents in an effort to learn their views on controversial issues. Here are some of the questions in a recent questionaire sent out by one representative with voter answers: Do you favor the Administration's proposal that the United States purchase $100 milion worth of the United Nations' $200 million bond issue? Yes, 27 per cent; No, 67 per cent; Undecided, 6 per cent. Should the United States continue to oppose admission of Communist Red China into the United Nations? Yes, 83 per cent; No, 14 per cent; Undecided, 3 per cent. Do you favor easing tariffs and trade restrictions? Yes, 47 per cent; No, 43 per cent; Undecided, 10 per cent. Should the United States continue to give aid to Yugoslavia? Yes, 20 per cent; No, 65 per cent; Un­ decided. 15 per cent. Do you favor creation of a new Department of Urban Affairs and Housing with Cabinet rank? Yes, 14 per cent; No, 74 per cent; Undecided, 12 per cent. Should the law be changed to permit Social Security retires to earn more than $1200 a year without penalizing their Social Security benefits? Yes. G9 per cent; No. 27 per cent; Undecided, 4 per cent. Should the United States continue to give foreign aid to those Latin American countries that did not join us in voting to expel Castro's Cuba from, the Organization of American States because of Cuba's ties with the Communist bloc? Yes, 27 per cent; No, 66 per cent; Undecided, 7 per cent.. • • It cannot be fairly said, of course, that ,an expression of voter opinion in our. Congressional district is typical of the whole country. But other such polls, taken in widely spearated and diverse regions, do indicate that there is strong opposition, among Mr. Kennedy's admirers as well as opponents, to some of his key proposals. This is true of the plan to extend medical benefits to everyone drawing Social Security benefits, an issue which was not covered in the sampling. In fact, this particular piece of legislation will probably provoke the bitterest battles, in and out of of Congress, of the current and perhaps of coming sessions. Mr. Kennedy is learning what many a President has learned before him. It is one thing to propose programs, no matter how big, revolutionary and costly. It is a very different thing to get them enacted into the law of the land. him . . , It has taken us quite a few years to realize what he went through and the „ problems that faced him in raising two sons. But now that we are In the same position we can visualize the heartaches he must have had and the sacrifices he made. We hope we can do as well in the years to come. their plan for collective bargaining, by master contract? He visibly bristled, and snapped back, "NO, and by God, I don't want to hear any of THAT STUFF". And then added,"the Farm Bureau is no good anymore either,. here lately a little group of New York Jews are gettin' conrol of the Farm Bureau". We asked, do you mean ... . /•» I that they control the factories yVSST (.Gilt HQ I — By Reuben that make the goods the Farm Bureau Service sells, or the insurance. Farm Bureau sells? He said, "no, I mean these New York Jews have control of the head of the Farm Bureau, and are gett­ in' a good chunk of the membership dues money". We replied, but it so happens the AFBF headquarters is at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. He snapped back "that don't make any damn difference, the New York Jews are gettin' the money". Then he looked at his expensive looking wrist watch and said, "well, I must be going". We were well pleased to have him go. We had taken about all we could stand, for one dose. Now then, let us meditate the harm such a man can do, presuming he sounds off in that degree, and with such utterly ridiculous statements, wherever he goes. Too many people will take his biased and demogogical talk seriously, because he is "successful" and well- to-do. That is one of the unfortunate trends in the country. "Money talks," therefore too many people can't speak above a whisper. and Kay Wenthe. Sofhomores Lee Buhr, Sue'Carey, Janet "Davis", Jon Harrison, Dorothy McClain, JaNella Palmer, and Diane Schlegel. Beverly Hoehne was the only senior having perfect attendance. Receipt An old tax receipt for land in Auburn township near West Union was found recently by Mrs. Minnie Goerend of St. Lucas. The receipt was issued just 100 years ago to Henry Kramer, a great­ grandfather of the present owner, Al Kuennen. Tax bill for the 90 acres in 1862 was $6.53.

This is a favorite gambit of the public (or sociall- ized) power forces. There is just one thing wrong with it. It isn't true. The business-managed, inventor-owned, taxpaying utility industry is now engaged in the greatest expansion and improvement program in history-and coal, oil, falling, water, and the atom are alt Involved. . ' '„ ' The list of huge projects that are being financed by private savings, not tax money, would fill pages. Take, for instance, a project that is planned by a California utility Company, and for which it has appl- a certificate ied to the state utilities commission for of public convenience and necessity. It is a hydroelectric project, and will cost a neat $91,674,000. Its production will be an estimated 1.58 billion kilowatt hours per year-which adds up to enough power to serve a sizeable city. During the construction period, the payroll will be in the neighborhood of $20 million. And it will be a fat source of tax revenue for "the county in which it is .located, for the state, and'for the federal government. As ah incidental bonus, it.will add substantially to the recreat- iofr ^'.'tydUUtea ^ths county offers. ... ; , we'need..government in the electric power business to precisely the same extent that we need government in the newspaper business, the grocery business, the insurance business, or any other business, that is, we 'don't, need it at all. Will Action Agree With Words? Whatever one may think of the wisdom or folly of steel's unceccessful effort to raise prices, one thing is sure. The method chosen-by Mr. Kennedy in dealing prices. A note of reassurance comes from Walter W. Heller, the President's chief economic adviser. In ah interview in Newsweek magazine he says that the Administration has no thought of a wage or price freeze-that "over all price stability does not-indeed, cannot-rule out individual price changes in a market economy. . .", and that "individuals have the right . V. lo tie either responsible or irresponsible.." Actually, the basic characteristic of a free society is that individuals and groups have the right to do anything they choose, within the framework of established law. And the irresistible corrective, if they go too fatS Is the force of public opinion. Mr. 'Heller's generalized statements are encouraging.

W If you intend to bring the plants back inside at the end of the summer, it's best to leave them in their containers. Dig a hole 2 or 3 inches deeper than the height of the pot and put in a handful of gravel, 'Sand, or cinders. This will aid in better drainage and prevent the soil in the pot from remaining too wet. Sink the container to within one inch of the top. Lift the pots two or three times during the summer and remove any roots that have come through the drainage hole in the bottom of the pot. W You will need to give some attention to watering and pekt con-,', trol during the time the'' house plants are outside. Inspect them at least once a week to check on soil moisture, insects and diseases. Don't neglect them or it may prove to have been better to have left them in the house. W Don't become impatient'and remove the leaves of your tulips, "67d^ foh'alge ; trom view. However, the seed heads on your spring- flowering bulbs should be removed as soon as possible. Taking them off will aid in growing better bulbs. W A little additional nitrogen fertilizer around such leafy crops as lettuce, ..cabbages, spinach and chard will encourage rapid growth. If you use a straight nitrogen fertilizer, sugh as ammonium nitrate only a small amount is required. . Too .much can cause damage. One cupful for each 50 feet of rowj-sfipuld be enough. If you use a complete fertilizer (10-10-10, 12-12-12,. etc) you can use two cupfuls per 50 feet of row. Just sprinkle • it along the rows, an inch or - so ;from the base of the plants, and cultivate it into the soil.
