Big Basin Herald (Newspaper) - June 10, 1971, Muldrow, Oklahoma OKLAHOMA HISTORICAL SOCIETY STATS ChVlTOl STATION OKLAHOMA CITY, QICLA. 73105 fiC (7b SUCCESSOR TO THE MULDROW HERALD VOLUME 6 Muldrow, Oklahoma 74946 TWENTY TWO PAGES. TWO PARTS Thursday, June 10. 1971 __~_- Number 50 WHAT'S BAKING IN BIG BASIN \ We have entitled this column �{'What's Bakin in Big Basin." The last few weeks we have written about traffic safety, troop strength in Europe, and capital punishment. You might yitonder how these items affect Sequoyah County and the Big Basin.area. We feel that traffic safety does affect our part of the councry since it is our families and friends whose lives are taken by the many useless wrecks in this county and state the same as it affects people in California or Maine. On troop strength in Europe and other national issues these items are very important to the people in this county because without a strong national defense our system of government will quickly be enveloped by foreign powers and when that happens we will be "affected the same as our friends In California or Maine. Capital punishment is something that concerns everyone because crime, and the criminals who perputuate these crimes, has no geographical boundry and therefore this subject is something that clearly affects our county. All of these items, even though, they might not have? their origin in our Big Basin county they .certainly are, issues that are "Bakin in Big Basin". Even though the conventions are over a year away the pres- idental race is beginning to pick up steam. We noticed that a poll taken the other day showed Senator Henry Jackson, D- Wash, slowlv but surely  making up ground on the front runners, Senator Ed. Muskie, D-Maine. It is <3 little early to start choosing up sides, even though one jof the other county newspapers stated unequivically last fall that he intended to support  Senator Muskie, but we would ask you to pay particular attention to Senator Jackson's stand on Issues of national importance. So-far Senator Jacksons stand more clearly coincides with what we would like to see this country stand for than any of the other "�potential candidates. When Senator Muskie endorsed parts of the May Day demonstrations in Washington, and stated in New Hampshire that he, if elected, would seriously urge J. Edgar Hoover, to resign we raised our eye brow at his candidacy, lets wait and see if he, by his actions, completely opens our eyes to what he stands for and what kind of president he would make in these crucial times.  , Did you notice the $10,000~ contribution o&k<pf the churches made to me Angela Davis defense fund7 Miss Davis, an a-vowed communist is to stand trial on a conspiracy charge. We wonder if the church that donated this money would be allowed to exist under-the type of system that Miss Davis advocates. We submit that $10,000 could be better spent in seeing that souie Junior Olympics Last Saturday afternoon a toiler Park in Tulsa a Sallisaw con tingent of children, under the sponsorship of the Sallisaw Jaycees scored well for themselves in the State Junior Olympics. The affair, an annual one, sponsored jointly by the Tulsa East-side Jaycees and the J oseph Kennedy Foundation, saw 657 children of various ages and retarded to a degree in some manner, compete in several events. Sallisaw entered 16 participants and eight of them won first place awards, two took second places and two were winners of third place trophiesarid four were awarded fourth place awards. Different events were classed by age groups only^and listed below are the first place winners of the 50 yard dash event of their respective ages-Rosetta Morris time 7.4 sec, Diann Bese, 7 sec., Calvin Dorety; 7.1 sec, Leann Caughman, 7.2 sec, Con-ley Smith, 7.1 sec Taking first place in the 300 yard run was" Bud McNally with a time of 1 minute 2 seconds.

Taking fourth place honors were Pat Sanders Molly Wigert, Wendell Cantrell and Debbie Anderson. The Sallisaw Jaycees have 'adopted this as one of their annual projects. All expenses were paid by the - Tulsa Eastside Jaycees for the participants and their chaperones who were Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Denton, Mrs. Joe Buz Lucus and Mrs. Barbara Morton. _'- little child is fed or some, boy or girl given an education rather than going to see that someone who advocated the complete overthrow of the democratic system be defended in OUR courts. The Sallisaw. Jaycees will open their fireworks stand this year June 15. The place will be at the Log Cabin on Cherokee. This is an annual project of the Jaycees with funds going to promote projects throughout the year. There can be no peace among men, or within the heart of the individual, untill we cultivate in our hearts the kind of love that is displayed and advocated by the Prince of Peace; Let Christian love dominate your re-la tionships with other people^jto-day.

Bill Dickson of Sallisaw was in Washington June 2 through Jurie 6 for the First National Explorers Pcesidents' Congress. This is sponsored by the Exploring Division of the Boy Scouts of America to bring together key elected officers representing.more than 33,000 young men and women explorers. To Americans these Explorers represent the largest and fastest growing high-school-age pro-r gram in the country. They represent a program that is now meeting teen-aged needs by being action oriented, youth directed, and career centered. Governor David Hail's high way death trap elimination program was sharply boosted Monday when the Oklahoma Highway Commission approved a $4.5 million-program to repair 82 "high .hazard" spots. . "This, fight against highway 'hazards extends into all 77 counties," Governor Hall said. "In- . volved are" 46 bridges, 31 intersections and six other rype improvements." The 82 locations will be improved before July 1, 1972, Highway Director Chester Brooks said. "A special emphasis is making roads la Oklahoma more_safe." Governor Hall said. "This is bonus construction made possible by a courageous legislature whi^h provided the . necessary, funds, "Oklahoma will have.saver roads along with higher quality education," Governor Hall said. "This strong injection of state revenues will save people's lives, reduce 'damage t our automobiles and should; ultimately, save the average 'man money in car insurance premiums. In Sequoyah "County the bridge on 64 B will be replaced. The new bridge will be 16 feet wide and will be loca^ ,ted approximately 2 miles north of Muldrow; "Our death trap program is aj wise investment of our efforts and resources," Governor Hall said.- "By providing new revenues, the responsible members :of the Oklahoma legislature have made these improvements possible. They have faced the realities of Oklahoma's needs andgave the Highway Commission ,th& money to carry this fight." Governor Hall also praised the Commission for moving swiftly to acquire additional federal aid which came available. On Mon.0 ,-Brooks reported, "We can already expect an increased federal aid program of $10.2 million." Explorers at the Congress are concerned young people who want to voice their feelings and direct their future. This Congress gives them a chance to do both. They will be meeting frequently,and informally with top government leaders to listen, speak and exchange ideas. A,nd' Explorers will be guiding their own program by formulating recommendations and democratically,electing officers who will become yoting members of the national Exploring program committee. The Explorer Congress is also, an opportunity for leadership growth in young adults from different backgrounds and areas as they discuss their problems and exchange ideas. These leaders will return home with a deeper "understanding of themselves^ other youth, and our nation so they can be constructive leaders , in their communities. The new president and his .. vice-presidents will be^or.ic members of the national Exploring committee that directs tho Exploring program. In addition, the President will represent Exploring' at the XII World Jamboree this August in Japan. Highlights of the trip wore a visit with Presidrtu \Am--.v. the White IKmsc Lum,
