He said that he had made inquiry about living conditions in the j:iit be- cause he is afraid he mt have to spend some tkme flere. I tel4 him I knew some folks who had not paid their taxes right on the dead line and they were still around, "Why." he said, "I know 4o that; I'm not worried about this year's taxes, I am worried about those old back taxes." I was talMng to a supposedly brilliant lady and she said day dreaming is one of the finest recreations a person can have. She also said you can travel, meet new people and that way gain confidence in new exper- iences by imagining yourself in different roles. Now, she may be right; but my advice is, if you are going to day dream, don't get out in public to do it. The cops might pick you upand charge you with highway gaw- kery and attempt to mope. I learned a little trick over in Ripley. When somebody comes to call put your hat on when you answer the door. If you want him to stay tell him you are just coming in. If you don't want him to stay tell him you are just leaving. This is sure- fire unless you are bald-headed and wear your hat in the house all the time anyway. Yours. Tom Berry Jllletlllltionl expressed hereunder ire those of the writer and not netesM Ihll nwspaper or the Qkhlhoml Pte:$ Association, By Ben Biackstock The legislature is making geeat effort to get its work done so it can adjourn next week. It is girded to stay in session for an expected Saturday adjourn- ment, May 13. Work on appropriation bills is all but completed. A strike by school teachers, which would have lengthened the session, did not materialize. Pressure from higher education, which could have lengthened the senion, came only in the form of a peaceful march on the capitol by students asking greater ap- propriations. The threatened strike by pub- lie school teachers won't come of. " TIm Oklahoma Education Association has dissension with-' in its own ranks. It wants the, lqgilature to declare a $5,000 minimum annual wage for teachers throughout the state. But Okiahoma City, Tulsa and Ponca City teachers already ore. paid more than that, so those big blocs of teachers didn't warm to the proposed "strike." Making it harder to dismiss a teacher and making millage levies perman- ent were OEA legislative goals Which failed this session. , A greater effort will be made to define increased benefits for teachers this summer, and early next fall. Education leaders hope that through such demonstra- tions as a one-week school re- cess next fall, the public will become concerned. Public sup- port will be sought to force the legislature to increase salaries and for Gay. Dewey Bartlett to agree to raises. Some obsecvers thdught C,6/. Bartlett would stop talking about his "no new taxes" election pledge. Maybe the public would accept that he fulfilled that promise by staving off a tax in- crease his first legislative ses- sion. But last week, he told uni- versity sludent demonstrators that he was still committed to a no new tax program. It sounds good to pledge "no new taxes", but the cry is shal- low unless it is accompanied by aggressive leadership to plug tax loopholes and a strict en- forcement of collections. Neith- er this administration nor the Belhnon one has moved notice- ably in this direction. A govern- or cannot stop the rise in prices for labor and materials any more than he can command the sun to stand still.

I sometimes think that they voted no in spite or selfishness; which I hope I am also wrong. The new town council are good men. as some of them I have known since they were babies. One of these men I have had business dealings with and found him to be fair and honest attcl a good business man. I hope the people will stand by them in what ever decisions they make as I believe whatever they do will be for the betterment of the town.

Sometimes aper- son does things on the spur of the moment without thinking that other people have a right to their beliefs as well as I do. Just because they see things dif- ferently doesn't nmke them dumb or ignorant. Each person has a right to his own opinion.
