In casting bait about as to who
will and who will not run we come
up with the information that in-
cumbent I. C. Nedley is off and
running, ,but incumbent Walter Dr.-
ren is undecided as yet. He has
two weeks to make up his mind.
There is another dark, dark horse
that is in the offing.
We learned about this at the Jay-
cee meeting Tuesday night. It
seems that Wade Barrier, Jr., is
contemplating the race.
We know he is contemplating .he
race because he replied with a very
definite NO when the Jaycees ask-
ed him if he was going to run.
And of course, everybody knows
that in politics, 'no" means "yes".
So look for "Whit" to annuonce-
or kill this editor.

Square Dance Club
Exec Board Meets
The executive board of the "Po-
Jo Twirlers" square dance club
met Tuesday night in the home of I
Edwin Peters. The board is cur-
rently working on the constitution
and by-laws for the club.
It was decided that no business
would be discussed on dance nights.
The club meetings will be on nights
other than nights that instructor
Gil Mathis is here. This will give
members more dancing time.
There will be five more dances
in the present class -after which
there will be a graduation exercise.
Arrangements are being made for
the remaining classes to be held
weekly instead of twice a month.
If this is possible, the present
group will have completed their
course of square -dancing by the
first week in April.
The club will not have their
dances at the Centennial Building
on April 14, 21 or 28. As yet a build-
ing has not been secured for these
particular nights, but the executive
board is working on this. All mem-
hers will be notified in due time s
to where the club will meet.
The club would like to express
its thanks to the members respon-
sible for furnishing hot coffee and
all the delicious 'cakes.
.The next instruction class will be
Friday night, March 3 at the Cen-
tennial Building. Many names
have already been turned in for the
next course of classes. Anyone in-
terested in square dancing call Ed-

A mighty effort will be made during the current Con-
gress to provide medical aid payments for everyone receiving
benefits under the social security system.
The case against this extremely controversial proposal
should be thoroughly understood. First of all, it would pro-
vide the medical aid to a certain age group whether or not
they were in need. Large numbers of social security benefic-
iaries have substantial incomes from other sources, and are
able to meet their medical costs. There is no reason why

lfund-should pay these bills.
Second, the medical care for the aged bill which Con-
gress passed last year after refusing to approve the social
security concept, deserves a fair trial. It is designed to pro-
vide the aid to those who are actually in need-not to arbi-
trarily established groups. And it places administrative re-
sponsibility and authority where it belongs-on local govern?
ment, which understands and is close to local problems.
Objective surveys tell us that the medical cost problems
of people 65 and older have been greatly exaggerated-that
nowhere near as high a proportion is in dire straits as some
have imagined. A sound policy will help those who lack the
resources to care for themselves financially, and limit gov-
ernment.aid strictly to that. The present law has this goal.
