At Your Friendly And Convenient FLORALA PHARMACY On The Corner Since 1904 Well, l can prove this. You name it -medicine, business, adverhsmg, intimidation, bribery, blackmail, collusion and col- laberation, to short change the naieve and or sucker, false accusation and innuendo to put down some people, product's and programs, while elevating others. Altogether, the bushes need shaking and a lot which you read and see is camaflogued so cleverly that a man the caliber of Lt. Kojak can even be misled• So, where does that leave you and me? I can be put down in many ways. Adding to, taking away and changing words as is illustrated, wittingly or unwittingly changes the picture, according to the publics interpretation of what they read and see. This is in defense of truth and the record, because truth is of the higher order. My integrity and credibility is open for correction or criticism. But, truth and the record are what the good man is or should be interested in. Right? ps/Dan McLeod • O. Box #103, Lockhart, AI. DEATH CLAIMS JOHN F.
