He unplugged an old black and white set we had given him and set it by the door for me to take back home. We made small talk. "How's your car running?" It was okay and had enough gas to get by until pay day Tuesday night. "Have you got any money?" Yes, he had $4.50 which would take care of his noon meal on Monday and Tuesday and allow a dollar for the laundry that afternoon. "How long does it take to do your laundry?" An hour or so, he said. "What will you do all evening?" I asked tugg- ing at a curtain to let some light in. Nothing he guess- ed. I pulled out my billfold and asked "Can you go to a movie on $27" He thought he could. 1 had to thumb through a $20. a couple of $10's, and $5's to find two one dollar bills. I started to pull out a $5, but decided l owed it to him to let him learn to appreciate paydays, and there is little better way to learn than to be broke. What is this summer of independence costing him? Every dime he makes, but it is really a bargain as we see him match his hard earn- ed paycheck against the de- mands of rent payment, food, laundry, gasoline, car repairs, entertainment. I think he'll make it. There is no doubt in his mind. xxx In fact, I just don't know how I'm going to survive all the milestones that have piled up on me the last 3 weeks. I've had my first birthday on the other side of middle-age; observed my 20th wedding anniver- sary; my only daughter is about to take her driver's license test; my baby just got his first "real" bicycle on his 8th birthday, and popped my buttons with three un- assisted outs on first base for his T-ball team. How do you slow it down! -O- Sound Off!

Parents beware ! Scientists still say saccha- rin is a potential cause of cancer. The FDA, in a "con- troversial decision earlier this year, plans to ban the artificial sweetner in foods and beverages but per- mits sale as a single in- gredient, non-prescription drug that would carry a label warning that it could cause cancer."

On a more serious note, things are not going so well for the promiscuous owners of CBs. Alias handles like, quote "Pink Lady or Gentle- man Jim" are running into trouble. It seems the Citizen Band radio is giving venereal disease a "mobile and anonymous dimension." The results are a new kind of gonorrhea according to the AMA Journal. One major complication is that those participating are using a different handle to protect his or her identity. Dr. E. Michael Lewiscki warns lis- teners to alert potential vic- tims that certain "handles" are not safe partners. However, it must be said that CBers have been very helpful in emergencies and this is why it is unfair to all those who enjoy the legiti- mate use of these radios. As Norton Thomas, who is doing Doc Banner's column, says, "I hear it is forbidden to cuss 3 heads $1 10 Ears s 1 U.S. No. 1 New Crop Yellow Fleishman's Egg Beaters Shurfine WE GIVE and swear on the box," but added she didn't know the rules or laws. Neither do I, but I do know it is sad when a few abuse privileges thus making it hard on those who do not. However, the seriousness of the matter warrants attention to those who dol It would seem in order to prohibit their using "handles" other than a reg- istered one. If it is unlawful to curse or swear on the CB, it certainly would seem un- lawful to spread disease via the communications. This is a case where the "good guys" can work out their own system to stop the "bad guys". There are enough health hazards as it is without unnecessary ones. Hats off to you who use and enjoy the CB as I'm sure it was intended. It could be the difference between life and death. -O- (From Page One) BLOODMOBILE are protected by medical histories, temperature and pulse.

But that's a chance he has to take. Harvest can be defined as the act of man's manipula- tion of nature to physically sustain himself. If we didn't have grain, or farmers to mine it, and sell to his fellow man, where would we get bread? And how often do we eat bread? Jesus Christ once told some Greeks this: "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains by itself alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit." (John 12: 20, New American Stand- ard Bible). (From Page 7) GOV. BOREN der the last four Legislatures of the old system and it rose to well over 8,000 in the past four Legislatures. In the past several years, some of our best le have retired from service because they no longer afford to t away from their jobs, busi-+ nesses, homes and families for such a long time year. In short, our state seetr to be steadily moving a full-time, Legislature and away from part-time, citizen Legisb" ture. I believe that you, and every other citizen of this state, should be deeply cott- cerned by this development. Therefore, I will propo to the Special Session of the Legislature June 13 that the people, be given an op" portunity to decide this queS" tion for yourselves. I will ask the Legislature to give you the opportunity to vote for shorter sessions of the Legislature by th question on the in next year's general eleO tion." -O- RECEIVES AIR FORCE COMMISSION Carl W.
