Forty-three members and one By Bob Evhns "Your Newspaper Serves" is h theme of this years National t Newspaper week October 1 thru 8. I We feel that people !n general[ over the United States realize[ the extent that the newspapers[ help retain our democratic way I of life. Some get aggravated at[ the way it is done sometimes "but . again, newspapers vary in per- sonality and like humans they are not free from mistakes and a wrong editorial policy i or decision. Think how dull and ignorant of local, state and world know- ledge we would be without the dtsseminatron of news in our weekly and daily newspapers We are speaking  as one who re- lys on newspapers for news too. Even though editors may Imblish their own paper, They must rely on other papers for new the same' as anyone. o Some feel that the recent dis- turbance in Little Rock was given too much "play" in our news- papers We can't feel that too much attention can be given this tYPe alton. Nothing would have group at OSU to have the annual intercollegiate rodeo in Perkir this year. Board of directors of the roundup club will meet next week with the group to discuss plans.

A passing motorist called Har- ral and reported two drunk driv. ers south of Perkins. The local officer was waiting on them in Perkins when they came through, After repeated attempts to get them stoped, Harral reported that he finally gave up and con centrated on giving the approach ing cars some warning of the careening car 1@ useing his red light. He was in radio contact with highway and county offi- cers, but the pursued car turned off on a country road before getting to the road block on the bridge below the I Kirk home.

Present officers are Roy Crabs, president Ralph Gray, vice-pre stdent, Irene Vassar, secretary, Galen Hoislnger, treasurer and the four directors are Arlie Ross, Rev Fred Kolosick, Delbert But- ler and Florence Holbrook The combined drive was organ ized two years ago to give the various organizations who seek solicitations for support, a chance to conduct their drive through the Perkins organizath)n. It en- ables contributors to give only once to several organizationJ. Last year the list included the Heart Fund, Boy Scouts, Red Cross and Oklahoma Arthritis and Rheumatism Foundation.

The people that do not feel 'as the people of Little Rock do also had a story to tell and in their rights took appropriate ac- tion to put over their ideas. The press of America covered this md told both stories Per- sonally, we think we can see both sides and wth what has been relrted at Little Rock we have seen things we don't like and in an indirect way, such as at election time or through our representativeS in our govern- ment, we are going to try to get those things changed just like you and I both have the right to do. lf enough people dislike th same thing then it will be changed. Of what possible way can we have a democratic way of life in these United States if we are not aware of the obstructions of this principle that arise every day. Without, our newspapers there would be only a few to have the news, and a few people with all the news Is a dictatorship. There are certain groups in every town, county, State and Nation that would like to keep their activities from the publlc, many because they can not act their own decisions when more than their group knows 'hat is going on When the public knows tlen it becomes their problem and democracy and an inevitable solution results. Although your newspaper ser- ves yot in man ways, the fact that it lets you practice your rights by knowing what to act upone make the news reporting - factor very impor/ant in our way of life.
