2-Algonq (la.) Upper Des Momes Tuesday, September 4, 1962 tipper De$ttlome$ GRAND JURY REPORTS It is natural to think of a Grand Jury as a group of citizens probing the criminal aspects of community life, and offering or rejecting indictments as a result. But a recent Kossuth County Grand Jury came in with a report that had nothing at all to do with criminal activities. The Grand Jury submitted the following recommendations to Kossuth County. I 1—That the living areaV 'he county home be improved to become more homelike, that night stands be furnished the inmates, curtains provided, and a moderately-priced TV set be installed in the men's ward. 2- That a workable, fool-proof signal system be installed from various wards to prevent confusion. 3 —That a soft water system might be installed to cover the needs of the home. 4 -That the attic in the sheriff's home be insulated to prevent heat loss. Members of the recent Grand Jury were Richard O'Green, foreman, Myrtle Usher, Ruth Patterson, Fred Ploeger, Jack Quinn, Phil Doocy and Marvin Calhoun. Grand Juries are not always involved in the more sordid aspects of life. This one seems to have concentrated on the humanitarian side. It isn't fair - girl's best friend is a mond — man's best friend is a dog! dia- If the knocking at the door is unusually long and loud, it isn't opportunity — it's relatives. * * * It may be a free country, but the upkeep gets a little expensive. - Pocahontas Record- Democrat. GORMLY'S INSURRECTION for some months past we have been reading about the refusals of one Walter Gormly, a Mount Vernon pacifist, to pay his income taxes His feud with the Internal Revenue Service is of long standing. He objects to the use of any tax money he might pay for armament expenditures. The case of Gormly is unusual. In an un orthodox way he is making an objection against taxes and how they are spent. His complaints and actions have resulted in fines, and then two-day jail sentence. The only difference between Gormly and a lot of other people is that Gormly just doesn't seem to care what happens to him. His objections to taxes, and some of his reasons for not paying them, can be heard from many a taxpayer any day in the week. Only most taxpayers grumble either silently or openly, and still make the payments. If the time would ever come that tax mon ey no longer had to be spent for armaments, we would certainly have neared the Utopian goal of civilization. In that respect, Gormly's hope is no different than the rest of us. Maybe he isn't completely nuts. * * * NOT A POPULAR JOB Grundy Center Register — The most unpopular member of the President's cabinet is the secretary of agriculture. We recall quite a long line of agricultural secretaries and all of them like baseball umpires were targets for pop bottles, brickbats and all around no-gooders.

She was only 16 when she and my father got married and they've been very happy for almost 16 years. I agree with her. Some of your answers are just plain stupid even though I realize you're trying to be sincere. — Clara. Dear Clara: 1 don't claim to "know it all" but I'm afraid your mother doesn't either. How is she going to feel if, next year, you announce you're quitting school for marriage? If she gives her blessing ouch! « * * Dear Dan: Please print this letter in the hope it may wake up some husbands, especially mine. My husband and I have been quite happy most of our married life and we have a son and a daughter, 16 Our trouble at this time is that we have no home life to speak of. My husband is too busy with his club and organizational activities to bother much with us. We only see him at dinner and sometimes not even then. Right now my son is at the age where he and his Dad should be extra close and they're not. People are beginning to talk, I'm afraid. I've tried to reason with my husband but he only says I imagine things Please tell us what to do. — Left Out Wife and Mother. Dear Left Out: Tell your husband a good community doesn't start at the top. A good community starts in the home. If you have a happy and contented home and family, you have the start of a good community. I know your problem only too well because I've seen U in action dozens of times. * » * Dear Dan: My boy friend knows how much I care for him — too much. He's always asuing me'to "loosen up a little," as be calls it but what he's asking is immoral. We've argued this point over and over and I'm afraid unless we reach an understanding, we're going to break up. I'm a good girl and I want to stay good but I want to keep my boy friend too. Please advise in a hurry. — Good Girl. Dear Good Gjrl: Your boy friend knows he's over-stepping his bounds and he also knows the "proving your love" routine has whiskers Why not ask him to "prove his love" by starting to act like a gentleman and show he respects you.
