This is National Hospital Week, and while visitors are always welcome at St. Joseph's Hospital, we believe it would be well worth the while of anyone living in the Wellington area to stop and visit a few minutes. If you are not familiar with the operation of the hospital, one of the Dominican Sisters or other staff members will be happy to show the fine facilities the hospital has, to explain them and answer your questions. If you are one of those who long have been familiar with St. Joseph's, stop and say "Thank you." to the women who are so devoted to our health and our lives. Give a second thought to what the hospital means to our community. The care it gives, the skill of its nurses and professional personnel is of first concern to the patients. It is personal. There is an interest in every patient as an individual. It is not the impersonal nursing care that of necessity must be found in city hospitals. This caring, this interest, is apparent in the atmosphere at our hospital. St. Joseph's Hospital is non-profit; and if it were not, the cost of hospital care would be considerably higher. Hospitals in most of our neighboring towns are operated by the county, and if they do not make money, then that deficit is made up out of tax money paid by everyone. Several counties have built their hospitals only, through the creation of hospital districts and voting heavy bond issues. Here again, they are paid for out of tax money, whether the individual uses the hospital facilities or not. At St. Joseph's, only those who use the hospital pay for its services, either directly or indirectly. For more than a quarter of a century, we have had the devoted care and service of St. Joseph's Hospital. We should be most thankful for this. A Time and Place for Everything 'NDIANAPOLIS SALT FORK SOIL CONSERVATION DISTRICT NEWS IRRIGATION PIPELINES Several fanners in Salt Fork SCD are going to install underground irrigation pipe lines during the season. Joe Coleman and Dona/Id Coleman will put in cement-asbestos pipeline to be used as a main line for sprinkler irrigation. Elmer Smith of Aberdeen is also installing a cement-asbestos line. These lines save water be- Former City Youth Wins Patriotic Essay Contest Henry Thlbocleaux, the son of Min. and Mrs. Anthony Thibodeaux, who formerly lived here, recently won the Bowie Kiwanis Club essay contest on "What the Pfeclge of Allegiance Means to Me." The youth is a sixth grader, and as his award he received an American flag. Mr. Thibodeaux formerly was minister of the First Christian Church here. cause they do not lead. Also they are much more convenient for the farmer to operate. A valve and riser is installed at every third spacing and a short; swing-line is used. With the pipe underground, you don't have to worry about maintenance and also roads and turnrows are not blocked as is often the case with above ground pipe, This practice can be cost- shared through the ACP Program or the Great Plains Conservation Program. Each pays 50% of the costj. - If a farmer needs additional main line, he can install this permanent underground (pipe with cost-share cheaper than he can install ordinary aluminum. Dan Henard plans to install some plastic pVpe on a carrier line for border irrigation of alfalfa. These lines will be installed this spring, so if you are interested, contact the local Soil Conservation Service office or go by and talk to the pipeline people who install the pi'pe.

CROSSROADS REPORT A diamond will turn to graphite if heated to 1,000 degrees C. Dear Editor: . I see where it's getting to be sort of a fad for voters to write-in names on .their ballots instead of just voting for whoever ' is running against the candidates they don't like the most. And this write-in plan is nice because it lets a voter feel the positive power of "voting "for" instead of the frustration generated by always ..having v . to vote "against". But my Wliterary nelgihbor says this practice has sure got the politician caste busy trying to dig up and qualify more voters who can't write. I see where the jails, like many other homes away from home, are getting fancier all the time, and 1 one jail in Kentucky has got a swimming pool and there is a golf course at another one. My anticipatory neighbor says this progress comes at a real good time, too. Because he says when the Civil Rights Law takes hold, and everybody is jail fodder who can't iprove his racial thoughts are pure, it will be very nice to have luxury type jails to go to. I see where President Johnson is recommending that labor and industry get patriotic and enlist in the War on. Inflation by repressing their natural desires for more money. Seems that he figures somewhere around a 3% raise in pay would be about right for labor, but industry probably ought to take a cut. And his self-denial message has even raised the patriotic hackles of some Congressmen and bureaucrats, so they now aim to take only about a 30% raise in their own pay, and just stay in the poverty class. I see where the view seems to be held in some religious circles that it is a Christian act to disobey any laws you dton't happen to like personally. My righteous objector neigh- Rabies Cose in Wheeler County The Texas State .Department of Public Health confirmed a positive case of skunk rabies originating in Wheeler county, Kelton community, killed April 22. There is no knowmi direct human exposure, but the rabid aromal did attack household pets jusl} prior to being- confirmed a positive case. AH appropriate public health officials have been alerted. The Texas Veterinary Medical Association states that rabies is a virus disease which attacks the central nervous system (brain); is invariably fatal in any warm blooded ani- mail, and is transmitted Iby a bite of an infected animal. This disease is found in wild life aa well as in domestic dogs and cats. It) is also transmissible to man. Vaccination against rabies is very reliable. A booster should be .administered to maintain good immunity. bor says he beHeves this also, but the flesh is weak and he doubts that; he will ever have the nerve to try for real high status in Heaven by violating his No. 1 dislike, the income tax law. But he feels that he has put many little stars in his crown by small civic disobediences like exceeding speed Hmite and throwing beer cans along itjhe highways. Colorado is called the Centennial: State because it was admitted to 'the Union in 1876, the 100th anniversary of American independence.
