Them'ain idea of CONELRAD is:
*first, to deceive the enemy 'air-

single radio station beam to follow
to a given point in the United
States. An airplane can pick up a
radio 'station over a great dis-

and are not identifying themselves
then a plane would not be able to
use a particular station as a navi-
gational aid. This is CONELRAD.

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 quanti-
ties as for big quantities. But once many doc-
tors begin writing prescriptions, the manufac-
turer 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 be-
cause demand increased. That's why we say.. .

The Way to Fight Cancer
ROBERT Frost once wrote about two roads that diverged in a
w ds and he ". took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
I thought about these lines the other day when a touch of
spring in the air made me feel how good it was
When that pain which turned out to be
cancer developed two years ago, I had a
choice of two roads. One was to live with my
pain a little longer to "wait and see"; the
f s other was go to a doctor.
S-' ^I did consider the "wait and see" road, but
not for long. I took the other ...
"And that has made all the difference."
I took the road "less traveled by" and it is
"less traveled by" because a great many people
do not know Cancer's Seven Danger Signals
and do not have an annual health checkup.
Now the road I am talking about is the road
' Arthur Godfrey that if followed takes you to your best protec-
tion against death from cancer. And if some-45,000,000 Americans
now alive that's the number who will develop cancer if things
go on as they are do not take the road "less traveled by," their
chances of dying will be greater.
So take the road to better health and life. It is your responsi-
bility; the family's responsibility. The danger signals of cancer
and the annual health checkup should be as much a part of your
health program as eating and sleeping. They will not only lead
you to better health but to a great deal more happiness. They will
eliminate a lot of worry and it could stop a lot of heartbreak and
financial stress. Know the danger signals: have that yearly health
Let's make the "less traveled by" road the "most traveled by!"

Covering a bald spot of ground
around the home is as perplexing
as selecting the right toupee-it's
hard to make either look natural.
Growing greenery in full shade
or in white sand takes patience and
hard work. Also, the use of ground
covers in the most unexpected
places often is the mark of a good
Ground covers are low-growing

,Lowygrowing. plants accentuate
curves and lines of flower Ibeds and
walks. Ground covers are excellent
in preventing erosion and reducing
maintenance on banks, slopes and
sand dunes where it is almost im-
possible to grow lawn grasses.
There are scores of plants suit-
ablefor ground -covers. Here are a
few recommended by University of
Florida ornamental horticulturists.
The common periwinkle will
grow in full 'shade or in sunlight
and is rated excellent for banks
and for edging along flower beds.
Fig marigold is a succulent that
will grow 'on sand and beach areas
near salt water.
The two lilyturf plants are rated
tops as ground covers. They resist
heat and drought and are useful
for edging. Creeping liriope, small-
j er of the two, grows .best in partial
to full shade. Mondo "grass"-it

Other ,ground covers include pep-

Preparing the soil for planting
ground covers is important because.
it is nearly impossible to cultivate
the soil later..
First, spade the soil to a depth of
eight inches. mixing in a sizeable
quantity of organic matter if the
soil is .sandy. Next, level the area
withli a rake and remove the roots

Like grasses, ground covers need i
fertilizer. The fast er growing,,
plants take very little. This means
one application of a 4-7-3 fertilizer
per year for gopher apple to almost
monthly applications for ground
covers such as wandering jew.
Where possible, use seed to pro-
pagate ground cover plants. It'll
make the job easier.
Woody an. dsemi-woody species of i
ground cover plants are usually
propagated by cuttings. Summer is
a good time to start the project.
Bach plant seems to have a favor-
ite rooting medium. But, if you
can't .discover the best -medium, try
a mixture of half peat moss and
half white sand.
Make the cuttings three to four
inches long. After cuttings have
been inserted in the medium, water
and firm the medium about the
base of the cuttings. Constant mist
is best, ibut If you are not able to
rig up the jet nozzles, then water
the cutting twice 'a day.
When the plants have developed
a sizeable root system, transplant
them to the bed where they will
cover up the ,bald spoto of earth.

Social Secrdty 'rei
Only To Disabled Pe
By JOHN V. CAREY
Many people are still asking to
have their Social Security record
"frozen" whenever they stop work
voluntarily or .become unemployed.
It is only natural that a person
wants to protect his Social Secur-
ity record whenever earnings are
not being credited to his account.
However, the freeze provision o'
the .Social Security Law was iitend-
ed for the severely disabled work-
er, and not the worker who stops
tor reasons other than a disability.
Until recently disabled worker
under age 50 could apply to have
his Social Security record frozen,
but he and 'his family could not be
paid monthly benefits until he
reached age 50. In this way, a dis-
abled .person could protect his fu-
ture benefits .by having his Social
Security earnings frozen so that the
years when he was unable to work
'because of his disability would not
be counted against .him. In Novem-
'ber 1960, a change in the Social Se-
curity Law made it possible for,a
'severely disabled worker to be-
come entitled to disability insur-
ance ,benefits. t a ny ag.e. This
change in -the law did away with
the "disability freeze."
Although the disability insurance
benefits for persons under age 50
have been payable ,since November
1960, there are -many disabled per-
sons who may be eligible but just.
have neglected to file for ,benefits
for ,some reason. They -may still be
confusing this recent change in the
law with the old "disability freeze"
which -did' not pay monthly abene-
To receive disability payments,
the worker must 'have Social .Se-
curity credits for at least five years
out of the 10 years just before ,he
became disabled. In addition, he
must have a disability so severe
that he cannot do any substantial
gainful work. The disability must
'have lasted for at.least six months
and ,be expected to continue indef-
initely. If the disabling condition
is a temporary one and is expected

qualify for disability benefits should

JACKSONVILLE-Now is the
time to obtain 'certified copies of
birth certificates for children regis-
tering to enter school for the first
time this coming fall, says the Bu-
reau of Vital .Statistics of the Flor-
ida State Board of Health.
"To paraphrase the an nual
Christmas time admonition, we
would say, 'Do your birth certifi-
cate shopping early'," said Everett,
H. Williams, Jr., director of the
bureau. "We can handle only so
'many applications a day. If every-
one waits'until 'the last minute our
facilities will be overloaded, and
delays will result."
Williams said that a parent ,or
guardian applying for a certified
copy of a birth certificate must
supply the full name of the child,
the full name of the father, and the
full maiden name o the mother,
along with the date and place of
birth. The original birth certificate
number should also be ,given if
known. The required fee of one dol-
lar must also .,accompany the appli-
cation, forms for which can 'be ob-
tained from the county health de-
partment and from many schools.
The certified copy of the birth cer-
tificate is rqeuired for registering
children to enter the first grade
of public or private -school, he said.
If the child was born in another
state or country the certificate
must be 'obtained from that source,
