Jan. 31 to Feb. 3. on pesticides and that experiments are seeking more effective and less toxic control. A Public Health Service statement has said that because of laws, the content and care in use make the requirements more exacting on chemical pesticides /than on the patented medicine available in stores, "Although the Food and Drug Administration has been and is doing ai marvelous job keeping our country's food the safest in the world, we as individuals must use our minds and retain careful interest in use of pesticides," the speaker continued. Another question iby Mrs. Crawley, "How polluted is our air?" was answered "by this statement: "Remedies are known; we need just to apfply them. Such remedies cost a great deal of money." Locally and all over the world there iare several types of air pollution—oil, gases, dust. Combined with other items in the air, a 'more deadly compound is often produced. Preventative laws in some areas, such as Los Angeles, have been incorporated. •In the last category Mrs. 'Crawley mentioned that when the first space man reaches the moon, he will look back on the earth and see it as a water planet as water occupies four- fifths of the earth's surface. "Why, then, are we becoming so co7icerned over water? Why is there so much talk about shortage of water and our water pollution? All those things about our country that we are so proud of—its growing (population, its rising standards of living, its Industry, agricultural and military strength —are Towering the quality of our water." Mrs. Crawley further explained that preventing and controlling waiter pollution —-unlike reaching the moon.— cannot be achieved with one "shot". It is a step by step process. She stressed that only as each individual participates can the goal bo reached. Members answered roll call on Medic-Alert, WHO food facts, radioisotope licensure, and the salt water conversion processes. •Members attending were Mrs. Edward flaw-corn, Mrs. Don Beck, Mrs. Mack Bush, Mrs. Crawley, Mrs. Cook, Mrs. Fires, Mrs. J. :B.

' ' ' Sen. Walter Richter of Gonzales, the governor's representative, and Walter Meyer of San Antonio, who originated the phin, took off for Germany to test the program. They hope to encourage 40 or 60 German citizens to make a 16-day red canpet tour of Texas' leading cities and historic spots from Oct. 15 to Nov. 2 this year. Texas Tourist Development Agency is sponsoring the projected program in cooperation with chambers of commerce and interested private citizens'. No public funds are involved. The tourists, of course, will pay their own way, although some will "benefit from hospitality in Texas homes. First visitors will get special low plane fare and ai-cost (prices all around. It is hoped the initial visit by the Germans will establish guidelines for a continuing long range program to boost travel in Texas by globe-trotters from other lands. Texas Hunters Kill 220,649 Deer During Season AUSTIN.—Hunters in Texas killed 220,649 deer and 13,680 wild turkeys during the 1968 hunting season according to an early post-hunt estimate. Theae kilt figures were compiled by the Uarks and Wildlife Department from estimates sent in from the Department's law enforcement personnel stationed throughout the state. From the 205 counties reporting deer kills, indications are that 106 increased their deer harvest last year; 61 showed no change; and. only 38 reported kill figures lower than the 1962 season's tally. Reports from 49 counties show no deer killed in 1963. Of the 100 counties retport- ing turkey kills, the harvest was up in 37; showed no change in 33; and fell ibelow the 1962 total in 30. No 1963 turkey kills were reported in 154 counties. LOOKING AHEAD by Dr. George S. Benson B&PW Club Hears School Counselor, Miss Jones "Woman of Month" Louis Graham, Wellington Sweat, Mrs. Louise Templeton, MOURNING, PENANCE OR RECRIMINATION? All kinds of observers, interpreters, and commentartiors took turns at describing t he state of the nation in the tense days following the assassination of President Kennedy. For a while, as Senator ' Tower of Texas quickly noted, an orgy of self-recrimination threatened to engulf the nation. The angujsh and shame of it all seemed normal enough but decent people were soon asking themselves why "we" let it halppen to a beloved, honored and respected leader. The hysteria was about to become misdirected. It was not true that rancor and hatred were consuming our people. Cries went up about the "shame of Dallas," "the hatred and' malevolence" of any who opposed the President, the "extremists of the right" who by some strange reasoning were blamed at once. Emotional analysts from the left kept asking "why" with such intensity that the blame, when their search was fruitless, spilled out upon all Americans. As for the .people, they were more ready to blame themselves and their neighbors, it seems, than to implicate an ideology foreigm to America. Yet, all evidence showed that it was Communism that had hel(ped create the deranged person capable of a deed so foul. Then came attemps -to assess the moral condition of America, leading quicMy -to. pessimism. What manner of people could produce a 'Lee Oswald, and Jack Ruby, an alleged assassin and an avenger? American products ? Are we a nation so poorly informed about Communism and our own heritage that so many could honestly accuse his neighbor and himself, leaving no blame on the Godless international scourge that apparently controlled Lee Oswald's mind ? If there is fault, it is ours for giving Communists free run of the land, despite a Supreme Court decision. Could the burden of the guilt, as some said, lie on the ipeo- ple? It is simply not so. American people and the Ameri- can nation are not indicted for this crime; Shamed and sorrowful, yes. Guilty, no. Nevertheless, Senator J. William Fulbright said in a Washington speech that the assassination was a byproduct of the American heritage: * the puritanical way of thinking, and the frontier mythology. The Senator's highly generalized (and political) approach concluded that the core of the democratic spirit consists of acknowledgment of fallibility, hence the element of doubt about our convictions and opinions. Tolerance and comipro- mise then becomes possible, he said, and fanaticism absurd. One wonders what Sam Adams, Tom Paine, or Abe Lincoln, among a host of past patriots, would have said or done without believing in themselves and their convictions. Neither is the Senator notable for following the advice he gave. Self4ncrimination is bad enough, but to incriminate conservative thought makes no sense whatever. But the Senator's statements were typical of many which led to attacks, not upon Comnumism (it may pnove to be right, you know), but upon tjhe conservative ideas and ideals that are found to the right of Liberalism. The argument comes to a plea for no strong views on anything, an absurd reduction of an appeal for moderation. It amounts also to an attack on dissent, without which there would have been no Declaration of Independence. It is a false premise that America is obsessed with hatred and violence and that these qualities permeate the American spirit; yet this was the attack on the conservative views, apparently because the conservatives are accustomed to resisting Communism. Therefore, it was, intimated, both anti-Communism and Communism are equally guilty for the President's death. Does that make sense? This was about as clear as Pravda's declaration that circumstances indicate "the murder was conceived and earned out by ultra-Right, fascist, and racialist circles." Senator Simpson felt called upon to remind the U. S. Senate: "Unless the protagonists of the hate and coMective-guilt theories have a different set of facts than, have been made available to me, it was not a right-wing fanatic who killed John F. Kennedy. It was a single kill-crazy Communist who •was acting according to the dictates of his own unoxplain- able left-wing dementia. Insinuating that conservative elements in America are to tolame for the killing makes as much sense as blaming Billy Mitchell for the bombing of Pearl Harbor." So let's do let the argument rest, without further assassination of the American character.
