Griffeth, director of FNS childnutritionprograms in the Southeast said such in- stitutions include homes for the mentally retarded and the physically handicapped, half- way houses, orphanages, tem- porary shelters for abused br runaway children, and other nonprofit residential child care institutions. The amended regulations, which implement changes brought about by Public Law 94-105, provide for other sub- stantive changes in the pro- gram, Griffeth said. For in- stance, state agencies other than state educational agencies may administer the National School Lunch Program in re- sidential child care institutions. And new meal patterns have been developed to meet the nutritional needs of infants and children of preschool age who reside in child care institu- tions. Other administrative chart- Redes are contained in the amend- regulations, which are~ pub- lished in the Federal Register of May 4, 1976. COMING NEXT ....

The take in tbe sixties was estimated by crimi- nal investigators to be from twenty to sixty billion and this was put in the Readers Digest, Look, Time, Life, etc. magazines. They used the fix and corruption of public officials, bribery, black- mail and any or every trick or means to silence those who would witness against them. So the FBI, etc. especially under the Nixon Administration, used by necessity electronic spying for prose- cuting evidence and it was paying off. Well Ex-President Nixon has been viciously and venomously mis-labeled on most accounts, put out to pasture, his tapes and records confiscated and probably doctered, leaving him no concrete proof to implicate the crooks or clear his name. So the big criminals profited immeasurably "by his downfall. Most of the news media contributed toward his downfall. They have awesome power. They alsoadvertisetobacco, alcohol, gamb- ling, etc. With this as a means of measure, there is no way for the public to believe hardly anything they read or hear from these sources. To criticise is not my cup of tea. Why then? It falls some poor concerned guy's lot to speak out for truth and justice. So why not me? For I can prove in an open forum what I say and especially write. Dan McLeocl, P. O. Box 103, Lockhart, Alabama FOR SALE: good eating pea- ches.
