My goal for the day when I started out each morning was the 3:30 P.M. bell. I cried so hard the first day of school, I fell down the steps. I think I cried the first day of school every year after that until I was in the fifth grade, when thereafter it took the threat of a belt to drive me there. If I had a child like that today, I would just have to feel sorry for them. I marvel at how children love to go to school today, in fact, start looking forward to it about the middle nf July. Things have sure cha.;$- ed, or at least attitudes have changed. So, whether anyone else is happy about it or not, I'm glad to see the last day of school arrive. Sum- mer is really here now, and if we can get the cold snap of Memorial Day behind us, we can settle down to a carefree, happy summer--that is until J about August 1, when we start dreading to think about school starting again! "O- THINKING IT OVER A Day By Zola Samplt After the Civil War the women of the North and South decided to decorate the graves of the dead soldiers. The day became known as Decoration Day. In later years, it has become Memorial Day. On this day the entire na- tion remembers and makes an effort to travel far and wide to lay a wreath on either a relative's or loved one's grave. In the early morning when the dew is still on the roses they gather in groups in cemeteries across the land thinking of other happy days while visiting with folk they have not seen for years past. They walk the nar- row paths among the many graves of the City of the Dead. On the hillside of cer- tain cemeteries, doves coo at early day and the air is fresh and cool. Sadness sweeps across many minds but time and life goes on for the living. Meeting with old friends and use to neighbors help to bring the sorrowed one back to reality and help heal the wounds of recent sorrow to some. Dinners are sometimes spread in nearby parks and the Day of Remembering does bring some pleasure to the liv- ing. It is a day well spent in some ways to those who wish to participate in a few hours in remem- brance and respect to those gone on. It seems to help those who must carry on life's journey. I know I miss getting to go to the cemetery at ~dso miss the visiting with old friends. The old Basin cemetery was moved just across the highway at Mannford when the Keystone Dam was in construction. So I always decorated the graves of both the Sample and BellEs graves I managed to drive to this cemetery for fifteen years alone. Over the years I always remembered. I think most people across our land have experienced the same feeling. It was a wonderful deed those women did after the War to help bring the nation together in love, understanding and peace. If only all nations on the globe could be reconciled to this feeling of reality and come to some kind of peaceful agreement in- stead of trying to kill off human beings. It is a sad time for many in foreign lands. I guess there will always be wars and rumors of wars, death and destruction as long as the world stands. However on this day, The Cities of the Dead across our land will bloom out With many lovely, ex- pensive decorations. Some will be homemade, others just potted plants or sprays. Many will go back to pick up their flowers before they are ruined. May this day of heavy traffic over the long weekend be a safe journey for all. Drive careful and avoid accidents so others will not have to be sad- dened this year. Watch the sky for tornadoes. -O- Doctor Thompsen: I'm eoneorno! about having dental x-rays. Why can't the doctor jtmt look at my teeth? Concerned Dear Concerned: Dental x-rays are an im- portant tool used to detect dental diseases. If your leg was fractured and required surgical at- , tention, you'd probably think twice about refus- ing an x-ray prior to surgery. Decay isn't the only oral disease. There are over 200 maladies occur- ing in the mouth and jaws. These diseases can only be identified with dental x-rays. Diagnosing conditions like oral cancer in the early stages has significant beneifts to the patient. The American Dental Association, the U.S. Public Health Service, and the American Academy of Oral Radiology have stated that modern equipment and techniques have made dental x-rays com- pletely safe. The National Commit- tee on Radiation Protec- tion says there is no scien- tific evidence that proper use of dental x-rays is harmful. The amount of radiation from dental x- rays reaching vital body organs is similar to the amount received in a single day from natural sources, like the sun. We take special care to insure your continued dental health by using modern x-ray equipment, up-to-date techniques and licensed personnel, con- trolled frequency and number of x-rays.
