HEARING TESTS SET
PORT ST. JOE ',,
Hearing tests using electronic equipment will be given on
Wednesday, June 8,1983, from 9 A.M. to 2 P.M. Florida
licensed hearing aid specialist will be here.
These tests have been set because many senior citizens
suspect they have trouble hearing and UNDERSTAND-
ING. Use of the latest electronic equipment will indicate
whether there is such a problem and if it can be elec-
tronically helped. Some of the causes of hearing loss will
be explained, and diagrams of how the ear works will be
available for those interested.
Everyone, especially older citizens and/or those who
have been exposed to LOUD NOISES, should have their
hearing tested electronically at least once a year. If there
is trouble at all hearing clearly, even those who wear
hearing aids and those told nothing could be done should
have a test with the latest method of hearing correction.
'iThe electronic hearing test will be given on Wednesday,
June 8, from 9 AM. to 2 P.M. at Campbells Drug Store,
'Port St. Joe, Florida.
Appointments for Wednesday can be arranged by calling
,227-1224. We urge you to bring someone with you!!
Please Call for An Appointment to A.oid If waiting

against .procurement of -the

Nuclear freeze resolution, I think
it best that I again explain my

I have always favored the
MX Missile System, but was
unwilling to commit large sums
of money to purchasing the
missiles when I was not satisfied
with proposed deployment
It just nev.r made sense to
me to buy an expensive
weapons system which we ad-
mittedly did not know what to
The recent presidential cdm-
mission report on basing the
MX met my objections, and
now that the siting problems are
resolved it makes sense to go
forward with building and
deploying the system.
I do not feel this in any way
conflicts with my vote for a.
nuclear freeze. In fact I hope the
result of the MX vote will be to
inform the Russians that we will
not be lulled to sleep by their
delaying tactics in negotiating
arms reductions. The MX legis-
lation permits U.St arms
negotiators to use the MX as
one of the bargaining chits they
have available in these negotia-
The nuclear freeze resolu-
tion was a heartfelt expression
of the American people that
they want arms reductions. But
the resolution clearly calls for
"mutual and verifiable" reduc-
If the Russians sense that
we are timid about developing
new weapons systems while
negotiating for reductions, they
will delay negotiations until they
have a clear superiority in
We simply cannot allow that
to happen, nor would we want
to pay the price for the nuclear
extortion which would follow.

A. They are made of a rigid
plastic combined with other
materials which permit ox-
ygen to flow through 'and
reach the e"es. Thev offer
greater comfort to Ihe patient
whose eses require hard con-
tact lenses in order to see
sharply and clearly. Gas per-
meable lenses are more dur-
able than soft contact lenses.
The greatest advantage of the
gas permeable lens is that it
can given clear vision to pa-
tients with a' moderate to high
degree of astigmatism; this is
not always possible with soft
Research and testing' are still
going on to determine
whether.gas permeable lenses
are safe- 'for 'extended wear.
These lenses have not been ap-
proved by the Food and Drug
Administration' for this pur-
pose and, until' they are,
should not be prescribed for
other than daily wear.
