News of 1977 (From Page 1) The Livestock and Meats Judging Teams attended the NaUonal and won high honors. It was announced that Perkins' part in the Kaw Water Project, that would provide treated water from the Kaw Reservior, would be $262,100. These funds will come from a 75% grant plus a loan frtm the Farmers Home Administration. The project is several years off, but the ground work is laid for an adequate supply of water for Perkins' future. The Lions Club, after several years of discussing it, finally started a project to enlarge their Lions building. A wall was knocked out and the room doubled in size. The Lions Club has shown a growth and the old facilities were becoming too small. The Lions also sponsored a program to buy new Main Street Christmas decorations for the community through various fund raising pro- grams and donations. Perkins area farmers are joining the National Agri- culture movement in promot- ing a strike that is hoped to result in parity for all farm products. An office was set up on Main Street and several farmers have become instrumental in providing leadership in the organiza- tion of the strike. The farmers have been involved in picketing and demonstrat- ing in parades. Perkins residents protest- ed a redistricting plan that would have put Perkins in Cimmissioner District 3. A delegation attended a public meeting and the city council went on record as opposing changing districts. The Com- missioners resolved the matter by not redistricting, and the Commissioner Dis- trict remain as they have been.. -0- SOdND OFFI II (From Page 3) endanger our lives or careers. In a rather douded issue about the legality of prayers in school, the National Education Assoc. is appar- ently supporting a teacher in North Carolina who has been fired because he "question- ed the principal about the legality of school prayers" in that high school. The teacher is not an NEA member. On the other hand, the 'NEA stated it was the "unprecedented nature of the case and its impact on the teaching profession" to which they objected. Never- theless, Michael Smith, the teacher involved, has been accused by members of the Aibemarie, N.C., community of being a "devil worship- per," who spreads "rotten- The Perkins Journal Thursday, December 29, 1977-5 ess" and "taught a mini- course on Satanism." As a result, the daily prayers in the school were replaced with silent prayers which begin with the announcement, "Let's bow our heads," and after a pause "Amen" is said. In my opinion, this is another of the accumulating obstacles which face us in thenew year. Whether or not the teacher is guilty of any wrong doing, it appears to be another case of one .person choosing to tak ,away another's civil rights Because he does not agree with them. Where does it all end? It seems to me that my civil rights end when they infringe upon another's. The same thing applies when his civil liberties are imposed upon me. As in the case of Miss Bryant. does she not have the same right under the constitution to express her moral convictions as the homosexual has to choose his life style? After all, she is not trying to impose her views upon them but merely that they should not be allowed to force their convictions upon others either. There are two sides to this question of "rights," and until BOTH parties receive equal privileges under the constitution, the discrimin- ation on the part of those hwo chose to live by God's laws is especially unjust. These problems remind me of the song, "This time, Lord, you (really) gave me a mountain." -0" NOTICE TO OBSERVE THE HOLIDAYS "Y" Livestock Auction NO SALE Wed.
