While supporting the ever in- creasing demands for fishing, hunting, camping, picnieing, play grounds, and other recrea- tional activities, the demands on our land will continue to grow in proportion to our popu- lation and industrial expansion. As our population continues to increase, wise use of land becomes more important to all of us. Some areas with fertile soil, though ideal for housing, might better be used for field crops. A wet place or a flood plain might be good for pasture and for some crops, but such an area brings trouble and loss if divided into building lots. The farmer that uses land wise- ly ordinarily earns a good liv- ing and he safeguards his part of our land for the future. The land is made up of soils that differ ~.n many ways. The up and the damage it does is reduced by an effective daily planned program. Nine out of ten patients can be "controlled" or decay free within six months to a year after going on a program of preventive dentistry. And if the program is continued faith- fully, the average patient never suffers from tooth decay again. Basically, a general pre- ventive dentistry program in- cludes seven steps. These are: 1. Brush your teeth. 2. Floss your teeth 3. Brush your tongue. 4. Use an oral irrigating device, if prescribed by your dentist. 5. Check regularly to see that you are doing these things properly. 6. Follow a program of good nutrition. 7. Visit your dentist re- gularly. One good way of removing plaque is by regular brushing. When brushing, place the brush at a 45-degree angle with the teeth at the gum line. Gently ideal soil for most uses is near- shimmy the brush horizontally ly level and easy to work.

It contains plant nutrients er teeth; straight down onupper and holds them and holds those added in fertilizer. Most soils fall short of the ideal. Many are sloping, shallow, stony, wet, dry, sandy or clayey. Although these soils may not be well suited for row crops, they may be profitably used for other purposes. The Soft Conservation Ser- vice which operates through lo- cal Soil Conservation Districts is charged with the responsi- bility of making soil surveys for the Department of Agricul- ture and other cooperating agencies and units of Govern- ment. Many kinds of soil surveys are made such as: surveys for farm planning, large woodland tracts, wildlife areas, plots for conservation needs inventories, problem area maps, land re- source area maps, generalized soil maps, and soil association maps. Generalized soil maps have been of many towns and cities in Southeast Alabama, and also of Coffee, Dale and Houston Counties. Most emphasis is placed on mapping whole counties and writing a Soil Survey Report of the area. Such reports have been written on Dale and Hous- ton Counties. Geneva County has just been mapped and the re- port is in the process of being written. A soil survey is gett- ing underway in Coffee County. Many on site investigation are made for pond sites, irrigation, drainage, animal waste disposal areas, housing developments, sewage lagoons, and sanitary landfills. teeth. Never scrub viciously back and forth or up and down on your teeth. This is bad for both the tooth enamel and the gums. And it won't remove plaque. Once you have finished brush- tog in this manner, brush back and forth across the biting sur- face of the teeth. Using dental floss is vital also since most people's teeth are wedged so closely together the bristles of the toothbrush can't get between them. Dental floss must be properly used at least once each day. Every surface of the tooth should be reached by the/loss. Use a back-and-forth sawing motion to polish the surface until it squeaks -- a sign the floss is rubbing against the enamel of the tooth and the plaque has been removed. For best results, select an unwaxed floss. Coating forms on the ton- gue. Therefore, it is neces- sary to brush your tongue as well as your teeth. Place the brush (using tooth- paste if you like) at the back of the tongue and brush for- ward using a firm but gentle motion. In some individual cases water irrigating devices are prescribed to stimulate gums and flush debris out from nooks and crannies. But keep the water pressure low. Every two or three days, use "disclosing tablets" to make sure you are cleaning all surfaces of your teeth Such Their lucky day is Thursday. Their best color is purple.

NI GI'I From Until FOR YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING CONVENIENCE WE HAVE RECEIVED SO MANY NEW ITEMS PERFECT FOR But the court held him liable anyhow. The court said he was guilty of negligence for leaving a dangerous weapon so easily ac- cessible to a youngster. Today, more than half of the nation's households have guns. Consequently, the chances of parental liability are at an all- time high. Tbe law lays a heavy responsibility on adults to keep firearms out of immature hands. In fact, many courts have been just as strict about BB guns, partly because they too can in- flict injury and partly because they may be restricted by a local ordinance. However, the less the danger the less the responsibility. On this ground, an injury caused by a child's toy bow and arrow was held not attributable to his par- ents. And in another case, parents were held not liable for their son's carelessness with a sling shot--a common plaything in the neigh- borhood. Of course, almost any object can be used in a dangerous way if a child is so inclined. For example: An ll-year-old boy picked up an old golf club which his father had left lying on the grass in their back yard. The boy swung at a pebble, but instead struck a play- mate in the jaw. Clearly, the club had been turned into a dangerous weapon on this particular occasion. But a court ruled that the father could not be blamed, since a golf club would not ordinarily fit that rule. It was the kind of misuse, said the court, that the father could not fairly be expected to foresee. CHRISTMAS GIFTING. A public service feature of the American Bar Association and the Alabama State Bar Asaocia. lion. Written by Will Bernard. 1972 American Bar Association PAGE 1 The Truth Shall Make You Free By: REV. JACK E. ROOPER 136 Martin Drive Barboursville, W. Va. 25504 I'LL WATCH T. V. IN HEAVEN I came in contact with a small booklet the other day that left a tasting impression with me. The title was "This Was Your Life." This booklet with Bible verses and illustrative pictures gives an awakening reality that every man shall stand before God and give an account of his life here upon the earth. Romans 14:12 says, "So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God." The word account means to give a reason or explanation. The big question is how or under what circumstances will x~e have to give an account of our lives. The Bible says in Luke 8:17, "For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and spread abroad." Also in Luke 12:3, "Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be pro. claimed upon the housetops." In light of these scriptures I believe the account of our lives will be given before God and the whole world. It could just well be that when we are called to stand before God to give the account of our lives that God will turn on a giant T. V. set and replay our entire lives for the world to see. You may say that this would take a lot of time; but, remember, when this takes place, there will be no such thing as time; we will be in eternity. Nov,, for a moment, let's look into the future when you will stand before God, saint or sinner, to give your account. There sits God on his throne; Jesus, his son, is seated on his right hand; and the Holy Spirit is there along with thousands of holy angels. Behind you stand your wife, children, mother, father, brothers, sisters, neighbors, people you worked with, every soul you came in contact with while upon this earth, and every person v,ho has ever lived. They will be there to watch and listen as you explain your life to God. The Bible says in Revelations 20:12, "And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened; and another book was opened which is the book of life; and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works." Yes, there stands the whole world, waiting to hear you explain your life to God. You begin to speak with quavering lips and stammering tongue, "Well, Lord, I always believed in you. I was trying to be a pretty good person. I might have done a few bad things, but I surely didn't v,ant you to think I was like all those hypo. crites." God speaks, "That's not a good account you have given. Here in Heaven we keep really good records of what you were doing down on earth. Let'splay back the film and let the record speak fox" itself." God then turns on a giant T. Vo set. Across the screen are the words, "This Was Your Life." The -Bible says in Mark 4:22, "For there is nothing hxd, which shall not be manifested." In Matthew 12"36 we find, "But l say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment." Mart, what an interesting program that is going to bel Yes, every idle word, every secret sin, every lie, every thought of your mind will be for the whole world to see. 1, personally, don't v,atch T. V. here; but that's one time the whole world is going to sit back and watch as you give an account of every evil deed you have ever done. I am sure there are going to be a lot of surprises, yes, we have been limited to just looking on the outward appearance of man; but now we are going to set. v,hat has been going on inside. Yes, many secret love affairs are going to be exposed; many professed Christians are going to hide their heads in shame when the truth of their lives is sho~sn before the whole world. Yes, that day of "giving accounts" could get really exciting. Worst of M1, as the hidden things of your life are portra](ed on God's big T. Y. screer~, God himself will laugh at you a~; stated in Psalms 37:13, "The Lord shall laugh at him: . . . ', and in Proverbs 1:26, ,q also ~ill laugh at your calamity; 1 v,ill mock ~hen your fear cometh." If this doesn't bring some worry and concern to your life, it should. Yes, you should be busy getting that film strip of your life censored. Jesus said he, would make a deal with you if you are interested. Read Hebrev,s 10:I6.17. My life is hidden in Christ.
