Hello Friends & Citizens: Ever since "The Garden of Eden", man or some men, have used manipulation of their fellow man in multiple ways as fast as they could figure or devise ways and means. This, by way of individuals or collusion among many. And all the way from petty hard timing to the taking of singular life to millions of lives. The communists control the news, have kangaroo courts and even burn or destroy the material which stands in the way. Read and study up on the history of man, but soon, for some of it is hap- pening in this countgy. You be the judge or inspect the fruit. Why so much confusion and coverup in America on, you name it from A to Z. The public or some of it wants answers on mat- ters of health, money, law, legal and moral ethics, tobacco, al- cohol, drugs, inflation, unemployment, division among the author- ities, media down to the man In the street, more medication but, more or as much misery and death as in the forties, fifties and sixties, more crime. Why? Is man withholding most of the ans- wers until the opportune time? Our various authorities have many of these answers. And sure I can prove it. Billions for law, health, etc. Yet progress basically at a standstill on these and other vital matters. How ridiculous and crude can learned men be to expect the public to buy it. Hope to continue these little articles. However, the going for me gets rougher thanks to some of those who oppose truth in an open forum. DAN McLEOD P.O. Box 103, Lockhart, Alabama were most helpful in donating hamburgers, drinks and tea. Those participating were the Big R. Ray's Grill, Dairy King, the Dinette and Dinner Bell. They were refused by one food service businessman. The Tri-City Squad wishes to thank all those who helped to make this drive a success - especially the youth, who gave so freely of their time. Their names will be published in next weeks edition of the News.
