When a brand new drug is introduced, its price is
usually high. That's because initial sales may be
low and the price must cover production costs-
which are generally as high for small quantities as
for big quantities. But once many doctors begin
writing prescriptions, the manufacturer steps up
production and is thus able to bring the price
down. A survey in our own store shows that, in
the past 10 years, for every drug that rose in price
because raw materials or labor costs went up, two
came down in price because demand increased.

this 'amount would be harmless.
It can readily be seen that the
approximate two inches of concrete
in the nromal house constructed of
concrete blocks would afford little
or no protection to the occupants.
The bearing walls in present hous-

Without extensive remodeling and
sealing of entries such as windows
and doors it is not possible to
utilie present house construction
for adequate shelter. The exception
of course are those few houses in
Florida which have underground
basements, in which basement shel-
ters can Tbe constructed.
Since gamma rays are similar to
light 'they do not go around cor-
ners, therefore little or no radia-
'tion can enter .shelters through the
designed ventilators which can .be
equipped with a dust filter. All
persons constructing a fallout

Civil Defense officials as to the
adequacy of their proposed shelter.

Sugar and Spice and All That. .
Our last child started to school this week. She's a lit-
tle freckle-faced girl, nearly six years old and she is ready
for education she thinks. We were aroused at 6:00 in
the morning Monday by the little lady getting "ready to go
to school". Of course after she got there, and couldn't go
get a drink of water or go to the bathroom as she pleased,
her attitude changed-for the rest of the day-and now
school -like everything else we build into something glam-
orous-has turned into the hard Work of trying to mold her-
self into a good, useful citizen. It's a long process, but may-
be she will make it.
She will make it if you are careful.
Our little girl walks to and from school each day, just
as many other children do. and just as her five brothers
and sisters before her did. She has been instructed in how
to cross the street and how she should stay on the sidewalk
while coming to and from school. But, like all women, she is
more than apt to forget what she wants to on occasion. If
it is more expedient to her wishes and desires to wander
into the street on occasion, she is likely to follow her womanly
ways and do so.
We would consider it a personal favor if you would
indulge our little girl in these times when she has whims.
She can't help it. it's just born in her, I guess. And, need-
, less to say, we would be a more than a bit upset if something
should happen to her.
She's nothing special as people go-but in our household
she is something special. As the other kids say, "She is the
baby ')and she takes advantage of this position". But
even with these ways, she is still welcome to put her feet
under our table as lo6ng as she wants or as long as we
are able to provide such table.
You were very indulgent with our other five children,
as they started to school. You didn't clip a one of them with
a ca I-and they were just as bad as their baby sister to be
prone to wander around in the road. We appreciate this.
But we would like to remind you that another child is being
turned loose now, and she needs your watchcare also.
Won't you be careful when you are driving through our
city? Especially when the children are going to and from
Kennedy's Fitness Plan
President John F. Kennedy has asked that every Ameri-
can school carry on a program of physical fitness for every
student enrolled; a program which would require that every
>N, physically able student take at least fifteen minutes of rug-
d exercise daily.
Al11 the studies conducted by the experts in recent years
Jw that American youngsters are out of condition, over-
weight and under-developed, in comparison to the students
in European countries.
This is a poor commentary on the country which boasts
the highest standard of living and the best diet in the world.
President Eisenhower, before Kennedy, called for im-
provement in this vital field, and now President Kennedy has
outlined a specific program. Many of our schools already
have such programs and many of them have programs which
require more than fifteen minutes of exercise a day for all
But some of our schools have not adopted such pro-
grams and some parents are against their children being
forced to participate in such sessions.
It is obviously in the national interest for every Ameri-
can school to follow the President's lead, and urging, and
inaugurate such a physical fitness program. Nothing less
than the very survival of this nation could depend on such!
a program. We are far too fat and complacent in this coun-
try and the soft, undeveloped peoples throughout history
seem to inevitably lose their freedom and independence to
the tougher, hardened races.
