To do so would only multiply the grief and sadness of Gilmore's family and families of the innocent victims of the sadistic escapades of the executed man. Cohmbia Broadcasting System televised a long show under the title of "Gilmore Vs. the People" which was not only in bad taste but completely missed the most important points. People of Utah and the Nation can walk the streets without fear of any further unprovoked at- tacks by the man and others who might be inclined along the lines of Gilmore will certainly have second thoughts about following in his footsteps. Of course, there are those who say that we have no proof that capital punish- ment deters crime. But history tells it better. After the kidnapping of the Lindbergh boy, a mandatory death sentence was imposed on such crimes. There was not another reported kidnap- ping in the United States for many years until our high courts reversed the law in favor of criminals. There are many other examples where lives have been saved by such a deterrent. There are also many innocent people who lost their lives because of the liberal leniency of our courts. Granting that if we had a better method of incarceration with less leni- ency in law and order, it might be better than execution but let's face it, we do not and the possibility of such is negative. Let's not further nagniFy the sadness of families and friends on both sides of the affair with unnecessary verbage. Think about it. 9 gra TO ALL OF OUR AGRA to draft resisters and deserters, give abit more recognition to the honor of those loyal Americans who served their country welt at great sacrifice, put a stop to trying to honor Benedict Arnold, Tokyo Rose, Axis Sally and others, and discontinue the effort to smear the character of George Washington, Paul Revere, Abraham Lincoln, Lyndon Johnson, John Ken- nedy and others, we just might have a better world of loyalty and satisfaction. The saddest thing about the whole thing of comfort- ing the afflicted and afflict- ing the comfortable is the effect on our young people. children. Of course, Hitler said that was the place to start in re-molding the country. Things I would like to have: A zipper with a buzzer that works like the one on your car, sounds if you leave the door open. And one with a remote control for those in the back, for broads with short arms. And one that would not become clogged with bric-a-brac at the half way point. Wonder what happened to the mug shot on the heading of "Just A Line More"? Arrivederci. "Doe" T. C. Banner Rap. Joe Manning The Oklahoma House of Representatives passed two bills this week that can potentially affect almost all citizens of our State. These measures dealt with the areas of unemployment compensation insurance and mandatory minimum sen- tencing for those who have violated the criminal laws of our state. Our present system of laws in Oklahoma are some of the weakest in determin- ing who is eligible for unemployment benefits and who is not. The bill that the House passed this week prohibits those who voluntar- ily quit their employment from being eligible for unemployment compensa- tion. Under current law, after voluntarily quitting work, a person may wait six weeks and then sign up for one year's worth of unemploy- ment benefits. The bill also denies benefits to anyone who is discharged for misconduct connected with his last work. The savings from the change in not allowing those who voluntarily quit work to A second important vote in the House this week recommended an amend- ment to the Oklahoma Constitution dealing with mandatory minimum sen- tences for criminal offenses. Under current law, the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board has complete discre- tion on when to recommend the parole of any criminal. This recommendation by the Board is in no way restricted by the length of sentence that a judge may have imposed. If Oklahoma citizens ratify this amendment, the legisla- ture would then have the power to set absolute minimum and maximum terms of imprisonment for all criminal offenses ........ This is an effort totake meaningful action against those who continually violate our criminal laws and pose such a continuing threat to our society. The personal safety of our citizens is the first responsi- bility of any government and I will continue to support all efforts that will keep criminals in jail and protect (From The Perkins Journal, January 24, 1957- 20 years ago) Curtis Fisher, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Fisher, was elected to the office of Mayor at the Saturday evening meeting of the Perkins Teen Town. Working with him are Beverly Arthur, City Clerk; Judy Reynolds, City Trea- surer; Richard Nelson, Town Marshall; and Doyle Davis, Maintenance Engineer. Chaperones at Saturday's meeting were Mrs. Stella Reynolds and Mrs. Florence Arthur. Lions members are dust- ing off their basketball shoes and readying up on the current rules in preparation for Monday's annual basket- ball battle between the mighty Lions and the fast and straight shooting boy scout team. Lions members named to either warm the bench or perhaps even face the onslaught of the Scout team are: George Jacobs, Lee Kirk, Tom Chrystal, Hurley Blumer, Arthur Hol- brook, Gaylord Hines, Vern Wells, H. J. Wirz, J. A. McLauchlin, Roy Crabs, John Baker, Paul Evans, Palmer Sadler, Kate Nilus, Marion Jarvis, Wilfred Over- holt and others. Max Homer will coach the Scout team. Proceeds from the game will be used to finance the local scout troop. The editor commented in his "Item More" column: Ray Harral had stepped out of the Lions meeting for a few minutes on business and didn't hear the remarks, but two highway patrolmen and Sheriff Schroeder paid him quite a compliment. Perhaps some of us don't realize it, bt like: Shiff chroeder said, we've got a good man on the job in Perkins. They were highly complimentary about the way Ray goes about his business of enforcing the law in this small community. We've ridden with Ray several times and realize perhaps better than some, just how much patience, time and work goes into the job. arrests, complete on his check on business establish- ments and homes, and sincere in protecting the community while others sleep. There is another new house going up in Perkins. Lawrence and Jack laid out the foundation markings for a new two-bedroom in the 300 block of East Kenworthy Street. If we remember the correct number, that is house number 47 that has been constructed in Perkins since 1949. Principal O. E. Cowley wrote in his Grade Talk Column: Some of the grade teachers took their rooms to see the Presidential Inaugur- ation on TV Monday. In the classified section, Roy Crabs was still trying to sell that 3 bedroom house for $4,000. It had been recently remodeled, had a floor furnace and was on three lots across the street from the school. Del-Mar's had a special on Ground Beef at 33c a pound. Coffee was selling at 73c a pound. Mr. and Mrs. Hollis Ward were listed in the Baker's Cafe ad to be special dinner guests sometime during the week. The cafe offered free coffee from 2 to 4 p.m. each afternoon. (From The Perkins Journal, January 26, 1961 -16 years ago) Perkins high school bas- ketball teams split wins with Yale. Perkins girls won 30-21 and the Yale boys took a 45-31 victory. Stella Nelson bagged 12 points to lead the Demonettes, followed by Sharon McCoin with eight. Joan Sadler had fi,e. Editor Roland Sodowsky writes: "Compliments to editors are few and far between, and perhaps that is the way it should be. That way we are never tempted to rest on our laurels.

The con- frontation is led by Liz Carpenter, who is fighting for ratification, and Phyllis Schiafley who directs a nationwide campaign against it. Some women sees the ammendment as a threat to them because they would then be eligible to be drafted and also sent into combat duty in cue of war. Others oppose the ratifica- tion on the grounds that it will allow for homosexual marriages which the pro- ponents deny.
