Approximately 500 citizens

When your doorbell rings on
January 23, 24 and 25, answer
it. You won't find a salesman, a
repairman or the landlord. You
will find a fighter. You can rec-
ognize this fighter by the badge
that she wear "Mothers'
March for the March of Dimes".
Many men are also joining the
fight to prevent birth defects
and proudly identify themselves
with a badge reading, "Tonight
I am a Mother."
It's a battle well worth sup-
porting. Nearly quarterr of a
million babies are born each
year with significant birth de-
fects. The March of Dimes backs
research, medical care and edu-
cation aimed at preventing and
treating these tragedies. Its
chapters around the country
work closely with many health
departments and medical soci-
eties in rubella immunization
drives and prenatal care pro-
jects. More than 100 medical
service programs are supported
by the voluntary health organ-
ization. Contributions to the
Mothers' March help continue
year-round medical service and
research to combat this nation's
second greatest destroyer of hu-
man life-birth defects.

dition and support the Mothers'

work was about ready to begin
on construction of the first two
cottages at the Sunland Recrea-

County Commission Chairman
Rudy Pippin explained to the
Legislators that the county was
in a bind on drainage work. "We
can't even clean out a ditch
without first getting a compli-

Bishop said that five state
agencies must now approve such
a request. He said plans are be-
ing made to try and shift the
ecological protection burden to
the cabinet so needed permits
may be expedited.
Pippin also suggested that the

use. "The landowners are now

The Need To Know
Given the justifiable and understandable concern of
the American people for a greater allocation of our national
resources to domestic and welfare needs and given the
public repugnance to the Vietnam involvement and the
unfair spinoff of back-lash against the military there
is a desperate need for a wider public understanding
not only that the balance of military power is shifting
against the United States, not only that it is the first duty
of the national Government to "provide for the common
defense" of our country, but as well that our domestic
and welfare priorities mean nothing if we grow so- mili-
tarily inferior that the enemy takes over.
In our free democracy where dissent is almost
unlimited even in its extreme forms of violence as con-
trasted to the complete intolerance of dissent in a total-
itarian regime the ultimate defense posture is deter-
mined by the will of the people. But the will of the people
is shaped by what they know and what information they
As the President has said, "If we are less strong
than necessary ... there will be no domestic society to
look after." Military weakness and national insecurity
literally invite diplomatic blackmail and the strategy of
terror from the Soviet Union. Military weakness and na-
tional insecurity increase the chances of overconfidence
and miscalculation by the enemy to trigger war.
These are not just the views of a senatorial "hawk"
or "warmonger". They are the warnings that have also
been eloquently expressed by the Blue Ribbon Defense
Panel composed of outstanding private citizens.
There is a desperate need to remind the American
people of the continuous external pressures exerted against
our nation and people. There is a desperate need to re-
mind the American people that the road to peace has
never been through appeasement, unilateral disarmament,
negotiation from weakness, or scaling down to parity to
History is precisely to the contrary. There is a des-
perate need to remind the American people that among
the great nations only the strong survive and that weak-
ness on our part in military capability and national will
would be the greatest threat to the peace of the world.
The most serious question is the will of the American
people. It is my opinion that the only reason for any
doubt about that will is the fact that the serious situation
has not been gotten across to the American people. I
have no doubt about their will if they know and realize
how serious the situation is.

Malcolm Johnson, in his column "I Declare" in the
Tallahassee Democrat was wondering the other day why
the United States-or other countries, for that matter-
do not produce a Lincoln, Churchill or Roosevelt any more
to head up the various governments in the world.
He offered the opinion that there are such men 'avail-
able, but they are not selected because the people do not
feel the situation today calls for the iron hand of a strong
leader to pull the people together and guide the nation on-
ward. He pointed out that such men only rise to surface
in times of great diversity, such as war and the great de-
pression of the '30's.
Johnson said that in his opinion whoever was our pres-
ident today, he, like Mr. Nixon, would be forced to put up
with criticism and dissatisfaction. "The people just don't
think the nation needs rigid guidance on the one hand
while the other side feels we do". It looks like a case of
not being able to win for losing.

Just as a matter of information, we here at The Star
didn't "ignore" the story of "Wayne Taylor Day" in last
week's issue. We did not choose to leave the story out.

He came to the microphone to make his appreciation speech
and had to struggle for some 10 minutes before he could
get cranked) off. But, he did better than I could have
done. He did make his speech despite the emotion, which
is more than I could have done (and I suspect I have a
lot of company here).
The Coach showed what makes him a good coach.
He had the perfect excuse not to talk. Nobody would
have blamed him if he had just put his grin back on,
which he displayed all through the event, and sat back
down. But the Bulldog (formerly of Georgia, you know)
just jutted out his jaw and kept with it until he had it
done. This is what all the testimonials said he was teach-
ing his charges to jut out their jaw and keep with it,
until the job is done.
If I didn't have any help in getting forewarned of the
event soon enough to publicize it, I made up for it in cov-
ering the event. I had three helpers; Bob King, C. W.
Roberts and Charles Wall (when he wasn't dancing the
