This whole ARA deal (the initials stand for Area Rede- velopment Administration, or sometimes Area Redevelopment Act, t h e enabling legislation which became law in May, 1961) hit Murray County on Dec. 18 when the area was d-ssigned a' "redevelopment area." Wishes Into Reality A 13-man committee was ap- pointed by the governor to take Red Cross Chapter Kicks Off Campaign The 1961 American Red Cross kiclcs off its 1962 fund-raising campaign this week under the direction of Benton Browning, drive chairman. The Red Cross will be seeking in this coun- ty. In 1961, for the first time since the chapter was or- ganized in 1917, the local unit failed to make its as- signed quota. This county has an unusually fine record and drive leaders hope that the county can once again meet its goal to insure continuation of a full slate of activities in this county. Two events of special significance are scheduled during the week. Rural workers meet Tuesday at 7 p. m. in the Aldridge Hotel for a dinner and film. J. E. league and H. L. Kinsey. are chairmen of. -this- -division of the drive which seeks from communities outside Ada in the county.

In order to do this, he con- tinues, it becomes, necessary to lay down an "Over-All Economic Development Program" which takes a good hard look at the present situation and projects it into the future along lines, that will benefit the area. Not Typical And this OEDP is what Jen- nings and his committee are working on now. Incidentally, don't let all these initials deceive you. It's a gov- ernment program, true enough, and as such must necessarily be referred to by its initials. But i it's no the usual type of govern- ment handout. Beyond a little technical as- sistance, and a little long-term low-interest money, the govern- ment's part in the program is to stand by and say cheerfully, "You boys are in a hole, aren't you'.' So let's see you dig yourself The point to this whole thing, Jennings points out. is that it's got to be done on the local level. The ARA committee, voluntary and unpaid, has to make the ini- tial survey and find out what's available to work with. It's got to "project into the future." and decide what can be done with what's available. Up To Citizens And then it's up to the local citizens to do it. BAL HARBOUR. Fla. AFL-CIO leaders rapped Presi- dent Kennedy's economic policies as overly timid Saturday, and asked his support for a yo-yo type work week adjustable to employ- ment needs. The federation's 29-man Execu- tive Council issued a statement representing organized labor's sharpest criticism yet of the President's domestic program. It said recovery has hit a lull and has been the poorest following any recession'since World War II. "The the labor lead- ers said, "is alarming and calls for urgent re-examination of the administration's policies and more effective remedial action by the government in the immediate pe- riod ahead. "A more adequate and aggres- sive program is essential. Presi- dent Kennedy's program as .far as it has gone is fine, but the approach has been overly timid and will not meet the nation's needs." Renewing prior pleas for a quick income tax cut and in- creased public works spending, the council also urged that the administration and Congress se- JFK Proposal On Arms Conference WASHINGTON (AP) President Kennedy Satur- day rejected Soviet Premier By ERNEST THOMPSON Khrushchev's latest bid for Ever since St. Luke recorded a March summit vagaries of the prodigal son, and urged anew that the i the eyes of orthodoxy have estab- Soviet leader agree to a for-'lished a stereotype which holds eign ministers' meeting on I that all rebellion must be a func- disarmament. j tion of the "left."

Or they can file by sub- mitting a petition carrying the signatures of 5 per cent of the eligible voters in Ada. If in the election, a candidate receives 10 per cent or more of the vole, his filing fee is refunded.
