Can you tell me where in Aiken you can eat where non-smokers can enjoy their meal? -- C. J., Aiken. A. Duff’s Cafeteria at Heritage Square has a no-smoking section and a sign clearly designates the area. The S & S Cafeteria at North Augusta Plaza also has a no-smoking section. The manager says it is not enclosed, preventing the feeling of being in a closed room, but is separate from other dining areas. Signs on the tables designate no smoking.” Also in the Aiken area there are several food chains which have dining rooms for club and private meetings. Among these are the \A astern Steer Family Steak House and Western Sizzlin Steak House. You might ask if you could be served in those areas, away from smoking patrons. Q. I saw a very small rabbit run across the road the other day. Isn’t it too early for baby rabbits to be born? - E. S. (third grader), Aiken. A. Dr. John Wadley, director of the Aiken County SPCA, says wild ribbits usually breed from January through August. It takes a month before the baby rabbits are bom.(Continued on Page 16) SPRING AT LASTThe blooms of this Japanese tulip tree, always a harbinger of spring, survived a nip of frost earlier this week.

County CouncilBillie Trapp Accuses Two Of Tape ReleaseBy KAY LAWRENCE AIKEN -- Councilwoman Billie Trapp publicly censured two members of Aiken County Council Tuesday night, calling their action a “breach of regulations.” Her pronouncement came midway in a fairly routine meeting and surprised and startled the audience. M rs. Trapp accused Councilwoman Mim Woodring and Chairman Carrol Warner of giving the council clerk authority to allow a newspaper reporter to listen to tapes of a recent executive session. “We have always considered executive sessions as private information,” she said. “We've had leaks before, but never a reporter to come in and review the tapes.” Mrs. Trapp said although Chairman Warner wrote her a letter of apology, she felt he should not take the full responsibility. Warner was ill and did not attend the meeting. Mim Woodring reminded Mrs. Trapp that County Administrator Scott Barnes had called a press conference at IO a.m. the morning after the meeting and revealed details of his reorganization plan, before county employees had even been informed of it. It had been Barnes who asked for the executive session to discuss his plan. Mrs. Woodring said she had been the only one to vote against the executive session. “I did not instigate a call to anyone,” she added, referring to an inference that she had contacted the press.

Richard Herold, a senior member and lieutenant colonel in the Civil Air Patrol, escorted two outstanding CAP cadets to Japan last summer, where they were guests of the Japanese government for three weeks. “We participated in the International Air Cadet Exchange, in which outstanding cadets visit about 30 countries in Europe, the Middle and Far East and Canada and at the same time their top cadets visit the U. S.,” he explained. Herold escorted an 18-year-old boy from Washington, D. C., and a 19-year old boy from Illinois, both lieutenant colonels in the CAP. “These international cadets are the cream of the crop in each country. They learn about civil aviation in other countries and further international understanding,” he said. Herold said the Civil Air Patrol was organized in December 1941. During World War II it gave meritorious service doing coastal patrol, spotting submarines and actually sinking two and damaging several others. After the war, it became a civilian auxiliary of the U. S. Air Force. It has three mission® In the first, emergency services, it performs over 85 percent of the search and rescue missions. “It is not restricted to downed aircraft,” he explained. “The CAP flies in search of lost children and hunters, boaters or swimmers. It does sundown patrol at Clark Hill, for example, and works closely with Civil Defense.” The second mission is the cadet program. This provides discipline and is structured to train boys and girls 13 to 18, or at 12 if the sixth grade is completed. They learn to fly small aircraft and have special training courses in the summer at Air Force bases, he said. The third mission is aerospace education. There are 40,000 senior members of the CAP and 30,000 cadets. Although girls can participate in the exchange program in most countries, only boys are eligible in Japan. Only males participate in the Japan Civil Aviation Promotion Foundation, Herold said. There is no Japanese military air force. The two American cadets and Herold landed at the new modern Nan ta airport, 50 tidies outside Tokyo. The first day they paid a courtesy call at the American Em-(Continued on Pogo 2) Richard Herold.
