JOHN VAUGHAN, vice- president, was in charge today and did his usual fine job when called to preside. Rotorian Dan Dean gave his own program. His subject was insects. There are688,000 different kinds of insects in the world. Wehave 86,000different kind in North America. He also pointed out that some crops planted in the same field year after year will cause in- sect build up. We also still have White Fringe Beetle quar- antine in this area, and crops gathered from underground must be inspected before they are carried out of the quarantined area. Young birds eat more than their weight in insects each day; also 85% of plant pollination is by insects. Bees are among many of our beneficial insects. Thank you, Don, for a very good program. Danny Harrison was the guest of Rotorian Bobby Harrison. Interact guests were Dale Franklin and Paul Hutchinson.

By Alien Edwezd Cook, Andalusia, Ale.) THOSE OF YOU enrolled in medicare will be expected to pay a larger portion of your hospital bill beginning in Jan- uary 1971. This is the word from Vernon A. Kilpatrick, manager, of the Andalusia so- cial security office. Kllpatrick said that the law requires periodic review of medicare costs. If costs in- crease, then an adjustment must be made In the deductibles a medicare patient is required to pay. Recent cost increases in hospital in-patient care has made it necessary to increase the hospital medicare deducti- ble. For hospital stays January 1, 1971 and on, you will be re- quested to pay the first $60.00 of your hospital bill. If you are confined over 60 days, you will pay $15.00 a day for the next 30 days. If you must use any of your 60 day lifetime reserve tt will cost you $30.00 a day. The deductible on extended care will also increase to $7.50 a day. Of course, as in the past the first 20 days in the extended care facility is free. Even with the increase in the hospital deductibles you are re- quired to pay, Medicare is stiU a bargain. If you are within 3 months of age 65, get inteuch with your social security office at 408 South 3-Notch Street, Andalusia, Alabama, and sign up.

We were glad we chose the Smoker Says: paper for she told of the be, gInning of our schools where in 1827 Massachusetts legislature passed a law requiring towns of a certain size to establish high schools. For a long time the high Schools were attended by only a small number. Rel- atively few pupils remained in (~ the elementary schools more than five or six Fears. Public high schools were/not numerous until late in the 19th century except In New England and the larger cities. Charts were on exhibR show. ing rim in attendance.

PROCLAMATION - For the past twenty-five years, the nation has commemorated the first week in October as National Employ the Handicapped Week. During this week, special emphasis is placed on creating an atmosphere of acceptance of the handi- capped into suitable jobs. Governor Brewer (center)is shown above signing Alabama's proclamation in which he urges em- ployers to consider the handicapped for their ability rather than their disability. With Governor Brewer is Education Superin- tendent Ernest Stone (right) and Industrial Relations Director Robert Kendall, of Evergreen and formerly State Representa- tive from this District. WE EKLY NEWSPAPER REPORT BY CX)NGR ESSMAN ~. L. DICKINSON Super Doves Destroy Troop Morale VETERANS of World War H will remember the propaganda broadcasts usedby the Japanese and the Nazis in an effort to undercut American morale. Names llke ,,Axis Sally" and "Tokyo Rose" come to mind. Their English broadcasts were beamed to our troops, and they were using pure enemy propaganda. As such, the pro.. paganda employed then had lit- tle or no real impact. Today, the techniques em- ployed by the enemy have changed the picture. Today, when radio Hanoi wants to de- moralize American troops, they just start quoting the Super Doves in the Senate. As one returned prisoner of war who escaped his Yiet Cong captors pointed out to me last November, he and his men could hold out against all lies andtor- ture the enemy exposed them to, but their faith and will was nearly shattered when some of their own national leaders were quoted from "Time", "News- week", "The New York Times", "The Washington Post", and other United States based publications, denouncing them as ',international out- laws.'" How would you and I feel thousands of miles away from home, rotting in an enemy pri- son cell, if we heard sore of the highest officials of our owngov- eminent parroting the enemy's propaganda line? Pretty rotten, BETRAYED -- betrayed in the moral rather than the technical, legal sense. Few of us would have dreamed that any Americans, in any war -- pep- ular or unpopular -- would suffer this kind of betrayal on the home front -- yet R is happening today[ The Fulbrights, the Goodells, the Gores, the Bayhs. t~e Ken.. nedys, and the McGoverns are doing the enemy's dirty work for him -- spreading htred and division at home and de.. moralzing at the front. False politicians and phoney lib.. erallsm have caused America more hearbreak and suf- fering -- more sheer destruc- tion -- over the past decade than all of our external ene- mies combined. Khruschev once threatened to bury us. My question is: -Why bother, when there are defeatists and de. mogogues within our own ranks who ,will do it themselves?, I emphatically denc~Lnce the effects that their behavtour ha,= had on the morale of our servicemen in Southeast Asia, especially the prisoners of war. [ Thanks to their feverish rantings and ravings, riots erupted on campuses that had quieted down, and old wounds of bitterness and mistrust that had begun to heal were ripped open again. One Pew wife asked, "Why aren't Senators Fulbright and McGovern as vo- ciferous about the prisoner is- sue as they are about the anti- war viewpoint?' Certainly our PeWs deserve equal time, but, it seems that the only kind of "equal time" the Super Doves care about is free tele- vision time to inflict their far- out opinions on the American people. Despite all ofthebung- ling and all of the back-bttlng of these Super Doves, it is my opinion that America iB closer to an honorable conclu- sion of the Vietnam War today than ever in the past several years? FRED McLENDON TO SPEAK TO TRI-CITY MERCHANTS Fred T. McLendon or a rep- resentative of his firm, McLen- don Theaters of Montgomery, Alabama will be the guest of honor at the next regular meet- ing of the Trt-Ctty Merchant's Association on the first Monday in November, November 2, 1970 at 5:30 p.m. in the Florala City School Lunchroom.
