THE FLORALA NEWS - THURSDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1972 From kfft: Don Fuqua, Democrat of Florida; El~abem An- drews, Democrat of Alabama; Dawson Mathls, Democrat of Georgia; and Bill Dickinson, Republican of Alabama, Second District. "BOILED PEANUT DAY" HELD ON CAPITOL HILL • Under the sponsorship of Con- gressman William "Bill" Dic- kinson of Alahama's Second Dis- trict, "Boiled Peanut Day" on Capitol Hill was held Tuesday, October 3, 1972. Dickinson termed the event a "great success" and said he believes it did much to en- hance the peanut in the eyes of the Congress and the rest of the Nation. Among other things, 215 pounds of Southern peanuts were boiled in the Longworth House Cafeteria and served free in the House Restaurants. Peanut soup and peanut pie were also pre- vet tried bored peanuts, peanut pie and peanut soup the oppor- tunity to sample these delicious Southern recipes." Peanut pie was such a favorite with the patrons of the House Restaurants that seconds were asked for until the supply ran out. Dickinson said the demand for the peanut cookbooks was so great that additional books had to be obtained. Dickinson said, "1 was very pleased with the way people from all over the United States loved peanut pie, peanut soup and boiled peanuts.

In other action the Council received notification from the L&N Railroad company that the present facilities would remain in Florala. The company had petitioned the Alabama Public Service commission for per- mission to close the facilities and transfer operational of the area to the Crestview depot. The commission following a hearing in Montgomery last February denied the request to close the Florala depot.

The Council had on display a brush fighting truck received from the Florida Forest Ser- vice, and discussed plans to enlarge the fenced area at the pump site for parking the fire truck, and also for the new truck recently purchased which is expected to arrive within the next few weeks. Also up for discussion were plans to secure a full time employee that was capable of driving a truck, reading water meters, street work and any other type work needed within loosa County's sheriff depart- ment for use in case of emer- gency. The community was completely isolated recently when severe weather hit the area with tornadic winds and lighting that was blamed for a fire that destroyed the Laurel Hill School.

Va. 25504 , BACK TO SCHOOL "Dress Code" By now, most of the local schools are in full swing. The children are busy at their given task of learning how to read, write, spell, and do arithmetic, plus a variety of other extra activities such as football, basketball, softball, baseball, volleyball, dancing, petting, cursing, rebellion, etc. In fact, it would appear that Lf the school boards would put half as much emphasis on building good character and morals as they do in getting the students to participate in these "other activities," our country would be much better off. This is not the subject at hand, however; this thing called a dress code is what we want to discuss, You older folks may not know just what a dress code is. Basically, it is a set of rules designed to keep the boys from looking like girls andthe girls from going naked. The necessity for adopting a dress code has come about in the past few years when it became known that most parents had flushed their morals down the drain and that they would be so blind, ungodly, and indecent that they would permit their young daughters to go tO a public school with half their bodies uncovered to the point that the slightest bend would expose their undergarments. The boys and girls are not to blame for the moral standards of today. These standards were conceived in the hearts of the parents long before these children were born. How can one expect a young glrl to have any decency if her mother has the morals of an alley cat? HOw can we expect a young boy to have any character if his father's character was molded from the writings on rest room walls? Listen, my friends, you know I am speaking the truth, you know yourself that the school board has had to take some action such as the dress code because the parents wouldn't, and this is not according to scripture. IP~ the parents' responsibility to raise the children, and it's the schoolboard's responsibility to teach them. However, tf the parents are too weak of character, low of morals, lazy, chicken hearted, or yellow bellied to make their children dress decently, then the schools have no other choice but to set some kind of rules concerning dress. Now, don't think that the sinner parents are the only ones to blame, for a lot of so.called Christian parents are just as guilty. In fact, many of these short skimpy.dressed girls and long shabby.haired boys are from homes where mommy is a professed Christian; and daddy is supposed to be one too. I was visiting a southern Bible college, and the subject of student dress was brought up. I was told that several of the girls who came there (some were ministers' daughters) were sent back home because they did not bring decent clothing to wear. Then again, my friends~ it's not only the parents who are to blame for the way young children dress; but it's also the poor example they are seeing in the teachers of the school. You can't say much to a girl student about the length of her dress when her teacher is half naked too. You can't say much to a young boy about long, shabby hair and sideburns if his teacher looks the same. I say, folks, that the school dress code ought to be done away with. That's right, it ought to be "canned" and replaced with some good parents who will be an example. Nothing has more effect on a young person than a good example being set by parents and teachers. We can make all the rules, codes, and regulations we want to; but unless the children see the rigid examples from the fathers and mothers of this country, we can only expect the next generation of children to have lower morals than this one.
