poned until this evening. Mem-
bers of the Oak Grove Water and
Sewer District are pressing for
action on installation of a water
system for this area. While the
matter has been under way for
nearly a year now, no decision
has been made as to whether
the County will sanction the in-
stallation, nor how to go about
Securing water for Oak Grove.
Two proposals are to secure
water from the City of Port St.
Joe or to install a well and
treatment system to service the
At tonight's meeting, the peo-
.ple of the Oak Grove district,
headed up by James Hanlon, will
sit down eyeball to eyeball, with
the new Board and try to get
something going. Members of
the City Commission will also be
present to state what the City
can do by way of furnishing wa-
ter for the area.
A second item of business
concerning the Oak Grove area
concerned a petition presented
by residents of the community
asking the County not to let an
unsightly building or a nuisance
be constructed in that area. No
indication was given as to what
the petition specifically referred
to, but the Board said they would
go as far as they could to pre-
vent unsightly installations being
put in the vicinity.
Second Meeting Proposed
Newly elected chairman Leo
Kennedy brought up the subject
of having a second meeting
each month, to be held at night.
Considerable discussion arose
from this suggestion. The Board
formerly held two meetings a
month-one at night-but the

val "+ e y r ct From".
The successful Christmas flight by the three astro-
nauts to the moon and backbrought a lot of things out of
the wood work during the past week or 10 days. The feat
coaxed a compliment out of the Russians-even though
sort of left-handedly-it brought the now famous atheist
Mrs. Marelyn Murray O'Hare out of hiding (although we
think her avowed atheism is fed more by egoism than by'
conviction or lack of it). Mrs. O'Hare had to kick in her
two cents by complaining about the use of Genesis and its
reading in a Government project with a world-wide au-
dience. A third thing that came: out of the wood work
was admission by' scientists that science is proving Genesis
- and the word of God. '
After all the world stood agog at the feat of sending
men-three of them, at that-to the moon, circling it for
a day and bringing them back home less than a mile from
the designated splashdown point, Russia had to finally ad-
mit that the U. S. had committed a great feat and had to
offer its congratulations and salutations. Not one to eat
crow for very long, the Russians set out this past week end
to repeat a feat they have already done-put a probe on
Venus to again prove that itis too hot for human habita-
tion. We should congratulate them for doing something
the second tiie, apparently to prove #that they really did
it the first time they tried..
Mrs. O'Hare was all upset because the U. S. allowed
the three astronauts to read responsively from the fir
chapter of 'Genesis which tells the story.of God creating
the Earth. Who, but someone out in space, seeing moi
clearly than any human ever before in history, just ho

"Bad Mouth" Put On Spinach
Dr. Barry Commoner of the American Association for
the Advancement of Science, has' come to the rescue of
tortured and beleaguered youngsters everywhere.' He
has presented the argument of knowledge to go along with
that of "I don't want to" used by youngsters everywhere
when they resist badgering of their parents to eat their
spinach and to' accept a cold glass of water in place of a*
requested soda, lemonade, punch, kool ade or other sweet
and cold drink desired by youth on a dry, hot day.
Dr. Comnmoner stated before the American Association
for-the Advancement of Science that American youngsters
eat less spinach than other children around the worldL--
and it -hiiy save their lives. The learned doctor went on

T he article from which we gleaned these awful trutl
concerning spinach and drinking water didn't go, to a
lengths to indict foodstuffs other than those mention
here. Why, we don't know. Other foods grow in the san

of -the same ground, -as spinach, somehow manage to e
cape the blah taste of spinach also.
Maybe our habit of eating what we like at least o:

hands of "tainted" spinach. Dr. Commoner's presentation
certainly offers the best excuse we have seen to date f

In line with Stalin's theory for
a Communist dominated black re-
public within the boundaries of
the United States, on December
17, 1951, the Ciil Rights Congress
submitted petitions to the Unit-
ed Nations charging the United
to States with genocide against the
. Negroes. Leading the .New York
delegation was Paul Robeson.
id The purpose of the 'petition was
rs an attempt to get the UN to act
on the charge of genocide-to
get UN troops (African and Com-
hs muinist bloc countries) stationed
ny in the South, and the area would
ed then be under UN control, and
eventually Communist control.

We learned one thing over the holidays and that was never
to make a definite statement about what one would or would 'not
do ,without taking the intangibles into consideration. All in all,
I guess that's a pretty valuable lesson and could be considered a
Christmas present, belated, but valuable.
We had made the definite statement that- we would not spend
the holidays in the hospital as we did a year ago. We were going.
to. get the paper out early, get in shape for the. big holiday eating
spree and just enjoy ourselves in general sort of .have a belated
vacation. 'We were going to do this. We; said we would. We were
not going to the hospital., We said we wouldn't.
But we learned that we were just half right which is pretty
The new year wasn't but two hours into the second day when
we woke with a start and a warning. Since we had one a couple
of'years back, there was no mistaking, the pain of a kidney stone
kicking about the place in which it was sequestered. The first kid-
ney stone lasted about 45 minutes and was passed. Nothing to it.
"So", we said, "You know what to do. Get up and get a couple of
aspirin, go back to sleep and go see the doctor in the morning".
Famous last thoughts
About a half hour later, we were still awake, and\still hurting.
Now reasoning came in to play. Total recall brought to mind the TV
commercial where Anacin was twice as good as aspirin. Two tablets
of aspirin didn't do the job so four Anacin should. A side lesson
we learned was, not to believe TV commercial claims.
-About 3:30 we were calmly and collectedly climbing the wall
and asked Frenchie to pick up the telephone, be a sport and wake
up Dr. Wayne Hendrix and let him in on the fun. He never has thank- )
ed me yet for being awakened at that time of day. When we asked
that the doctor be called (something I have never done before dur-
ing the middle of the night) Frenchie thought I was about to die
-what with my new grey complexion--I was afraid I wouldn't
and Dr. Wayne knew I wouldn't-but he didn't tell Frenchie. He
' just told her to get me to the hospital.
I was glad to get to the hospital, sweating in 29, degree wea-
ther, weak, sick and& HURTING. Somebody shot me with a needle,
Y don't know who, and frankly I didn't care if it was the janitor,
if that would get that bulldozer up off my back. It did.
Mother Hen Rutl McClamma' and her chicks took me under
their wing for two days and nights of hurting, keeping. a fresh nee-
dle full of no-hurt every twp hours or so, and everything was lovely
until Saturday Inorning, when the hurting stopped and we didn't
need that needle anymore. .Sunday, we passed a kidney stone a little
larger than a BB, came home at noon and back to work Monday.
Nothing to it, '
Since this has all been personal, I would Ilike to use the rest of
my space to write a personal note to my brother-in-law -out in Spo-
kane,' Washington, where the- temperature was 29 degrees below
zero the other day wAei:nit was near 75 here in Port St. Joe; My
brother-in-law.and 'I like each 6ther a lot, but'we like just as: much
to get in discussions of disagreement. We got a letter from him the
other day, and he said the Commander of the "Pueblo"- should
be court martialed for what he did. (Br6ther-in-law spent -20 years in
the service, muiich of it in the Japan-Korea area). Brother-in-law
went on 'in his letter to say 'that art enlisted man would have been
. court martialed for ,what Commander Bucher did (apparently in
signing his so-called "confession").
To keep up our friendly disagreements, we must ask brother-.
in-law, with your permission, "What fate -do ,we have in store for
those back home-who appeared to make no attempt whatever to,
get back some of America's most valuable secrets-even to, use the
three hours before accosting and boarding to send defense planes
from nearby Korean bases before Communist boats arrived to
board the "Pueblo"? Can't you agree, brother-in-law, that it was
high time somebody did something even if it was wrong?"

Blood from March of Dimes Center
Proves Lifesaver for 5-Year- Old Girl
When most five-year-olds
have an "off" day, as all
children do from time to
time, adults tend to blame
it on a need for more rest.
But when pretty, brown-
eyed Angela M. of Augusta,
Ga., gets cranky, they're apt to
think she needs a blood trans-
Angela has. an hereditary'
birth defect of the blood called
"thalassemia major" or Cooley's
anemia. By the age of four, she
had received a total of 60 pints
of blood, and still requires a
transfusion about every two
to three weeks.
"'Transfusions are such a
'way of life' for Angela that
people tend to-feel sorry for
her and excuse perfectly nor-
mal misbehavior," says Dr.
Dorothy Hahn, chief clinic
physician of the March of
Dimes Birth Defects Center at
the Medical College of Georgia
where Angela is a patient.
"Instead of the mild disci-
pline needed at school or else-
where, she often gets rhisplaced
sympathy. Like all bright, ob-
servant children she quickly
learns to take advantage of fhis
with adults outside her home."
Angela's young parents, East
Indians who came to Augusta
from New Delhi, cope very
well with her condition and
upbringing. Her father, an Ox-
ford-trained biochemist on. the
faculty of the Medical College,
and her, attractive, sari-clad
mother, treat their youngest
child as firmly as they do her
brother and sister-despite the
seriousness of Angela's condi-
t lion. Good behavior is-imparti-
ally expected of each member
.of the family.
-Victims of thalassemia major
lend to die in their first or sec-
ond decade. Their red blood
cells last only one-third to one-
half of" the normal length of
tale. Frequent transfusions
help, but children with the
disease are vulnerable to infec-
tions and even a mild cold can
develop into fatal pneumonia.
An estimated 25.000 children
and, young adults in the United
States are believed to have
Angela is too young to
understand the words 'sur-
vival' and 'transfusions' in the
sense adults do. But she does
understand that she is different
from normal children and

"Last year, Angela asked her
father, 'Am I going to live or.

-'Child if you want to-live. you'
will live.' I.think thaf'twas a
beautiful anrw.er, full of
wisdom. Angela told hdr father

"She's a brave child," says
Dr. Hahn. "She' is no longer
