This .comes just a few days before the Dominican Sisters of St. Joseph's observe the 26th anniversary of their coming to Wellington. We take for granted, sometimes, the fine hospital ye have, arid the standard of its excellence.. For more than a generation we have known only the skill and the kindness and the dedication that is found in a hospital of this kind. Perhaps we should see what the reaccreditation really means. It is a yardstick by which the medical and hospital professions measure this hospital—or any hospital seeking accreditation. The standards are set in every area of activity. The philosophy is to look at the hospital from the patient's viewpoint—to safeguard the patient's life and health. Hospitals which meet these prescribed standards are granted the right to display the certification of accreditation. And this is what it means to the patient. 1. There is a safe physical plant, with maximum precautions for the safety of the patient, with good facilities and equipment and the special hospital facilities needed to meet the patient's needs. 2. There is a competent, qualified medical staff, supplemented, in the case of St. Joseph's and other smaller hospitals, by specialists who will come when they are needed. There is a well trained nursing staff. 3. The administration is well organized, with a responsible governing body. Someone in the medical profession has said, "Accreditation is like sterling on silver." These are some of, the things that the accreditation of St. Joseph's Hospital means to us of the Wellington trade area individually. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Bank Friday, March 27. is the last day for filing an application to ;ake part in the 1964 feed grain program, W; C. Harwell, :hairman of the Agricultural Stabilization and 'Conservation county committee, said today. le urges growers who are in- ;erested in the program to call at the ASOS office as soon as possible. •..-,..• "Time has a way of slipping up on us even though we think we have iplenty," the chairman pointed out. "Actually, 'there are only two working days left which to sign aiip for this year's program. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. :rom Monday through Friday. We don't want anybody disappointed because he waited too long." As last year, Harwell ex- CROSSROADS REPORT Dear Editor: The voice of the wild Anti- Da'llasite can still be heard, clear out here in the boondocks,' as many great and tolerably great press and TV tantrum- throwers keep doing so. And' here lately a notorious California defense lawyer lost a case in Dallas and tirades the native jurors for not noticing that he is smarter than they are. Inhabitants of this suffering city hadn't ought to feel too bad, though, because it is considerable of an honor to 'be lamibasted by the particular characters who are running down Dallas'. The War on Poverty took somewhat of a set-back here the other clay when Congressmen got scared of what the voting class might think, and d'o, so they turned down the Federal pay raise bill. TQiis medicine would have cured a herup of poverty among themselves and the other hard- shipped government toilers. And it's going to be a shame on the country if our Congress- men and Bureau Bigs just can't manage to subsist' on the (pittances of around $400 a week and fringe (benefits which we pay tihem, and their wives have to start taking in washing. I see where the Supreme Court has deci-eed 'that it is OK to publish lies accidentally about public officials, especially if the lies are albout Southorn- type public officials. Which my pro-Truth neighbor says had ougM to open up vast and rich opportunities for licensed mind readers to assay liars as to whether they have mean motives. Says he is against tying in general, whether dit is court- blessed or not, because fie figures that if a public official needs to ; be criticized, the truth is probably bad enough.

A5C .Program March 27 Deadline on \ Feed Grain Sign-up Easter Service in Ampitheotre Following .(past 'traditions the Canyon Christian Youth Council will again sponsor an Easter sunrise service in Palo Duro canyon. The service will be held as last year in 'the Panhandle Heritage Foundation amphi- theatre. The service will ibe held Sunday, March 29 .at 6 turn. Included in the program will be the Rev. Jack Boyett who will present the message, and the Canyon Hugh school choir presenting special music. Members of GCYC will assist in the presentation. Persons who attend the service .will be admitted free charge .to the park. The grouip feels that this service in its beautiful natura' setting will be an. inspiring experience. A cordial invitation is extended to all residents o: the Panhandle to attend this sea-vice. plains, the feed grain program covers corn, grain sorghum and >artey. Minimum diversion under -the 1964 program is 20% of the individual farm's itiotal !eed grain bas«. For diverting more than the minimum acreage from feed grain production into a conserving use, the diversion payment will be figured at a higher rate. If the diversion is 40% or more, the higher rate applies- to the whole diversion. Besides the diversion payments (part of which may be paid in advance if "tthe farmer requests it), a participating grower also earns price s<up,port payments on the normal production of the acreage that is planted to one or more of the three feed grains in 1964, and he is also eligible to put his crops under the regular price support loans or purchase agreements. The chairman reports that farmer interest in Collings- vmrth county is higher than last year. Indications' are that 1964 participation'will'run..well ahead of that under 'the 1963 feed grain program. is to ^^^•^^ ^••^••v V^HB^ • ^^ «•••••• IBBBBH^- Cotton It's New-It's Different The talk of the Cotton Country is the extra vigor—the big yield* from DeKalb Strain-Cross Cotton.
