And what a proud bit of history it is. Last sunday slightly More than Ada and area residents turned out at Norris stadium for the game. It was a remarkable testimony. It was a testimony to glory Matheron. It was a testimony to the concern of a great Many people especially Young people who dreamed up the idea of the game and got behind it and pushed and pushed and pushed. It was a testimony to the players almost 100 of them. Some of them had played football recently. Some of them had been mothballed for a rather considerable length of time. But there they were grunting and sweating and even hurting a Little some of them showing thin hair some of them showing a Little added Prosperity around the Middle. And just for the record the game was t a cakewalk. They were playing for real and there was some hitting out there. Considering the obvious limits on practice it was an amazingly Good game. So Many people were involved and that was one of the Beautiful things about it All. There were cheer leaders and the co Ganns and the members of the has band and a halftime karate show and people Selling concessions and people Selling programs. And then there were the spectators All kinds of them grandparents and parents and ankle biters All Over the place and teenagers and Young adults. Wonderful. All those people out there meant something. It meant they cared. It was a Good cause. But a Good cause is not always enough. The easy thing to do would have been to buy some tickets or make a contribution and that was that. But people did More. They came and in their coming their physical pres ence they said so much. In the newspaper business it is easy to acquire a tinge of cynicism. There Are Many worthwhile causes. People support them. But in Many cases it is a sort of conditional support. A group or even an individual helps but somebody figures there ought to be a Little extra mileage in that help. They want a picture in the paper or a Story or something like that. True the help is Welcome and needed. But there is occasionally a Little of the of what a Good boy am i As Jenkin Lloyd Jones sauce for the Goose pet involved Public recognition of a Good deed. There was none of that for the bowl game. Nobody sought recognition or a Pat on the Back. Nobody wanted what is known in journalism As a Check pass ing picture. All kinds of people and groups and organizations came Forward. They came sincerely quietly and there was Only one simple motive. They wanted to help. They came together and something wonderful happened. The game produced approximately and that s Good. The Money is needed and it will of course be used to help glory. But there is so much More. Hundreds of people proved they care. They proved they will respond. They proved what can be done when people join together. In the final analysis the legacy left by the Benefit bowl game May Well indeed be the most important thing of All. B v the Rev. A. Puh Neli Bailey. . I had slowed around a Rock in one of my Fields for about five said an old Farmer. And i have broken a mowing machine Blade against it besides losing the use of the ground in which it Lay. All because acting on the notion that an iceberg is four fifths underwater i figured most of the Rock was out of sight so i thought removing it would take too much time and labor. But today when i began blowing for the Corn i thought i might break my cultivator against the same Rock. So i took a crowbar intending to poke around it and find out its size once and for All. I was surprised to find the Rock Little More than 2 feet Long lying Loose on the ground and so Light that i could lift it into the Wagon without the first time he really faced his trouble be conquered it this the Victory that Ove cometh the world even our Faith. I John copyright Gen Fea if a deep South Ultra rightist is indeed proven guilty of kidnapping Liberal Atlanta Constitution editor Reg Murphy there should be three National awards. The first of course should go to Murphy who while admittedly scared kept his wits about him and made the few est crawling motions that he Felt he could get away with. The second should go to the Fri which acted smartly on the Case even if it did turn out to be a Ham handed foot in the bucket Effort at crime in contrast to the smooth ruthlessness of the sym ionese liberation army of Oakland. And the third should be an engraved certificate of appreciation second class from the american people which Murphy s kidnapper could hang up in his cell and con template hopefully for very Many years. For he blew the whistle on a conceit of the Radical left that terrorism is its exclusive property. Even As Murphy was being spirited away i was Reading in the Washington Star news a strange interview with Wil Liam Kunstler the Radical lawyer. Kunstler had been called to san Francisco from St. Paul where he bad been defending Dennis Banks the aim Leader charged with hostage taking at wounded knee. He was summoned at the request of Randolph Hearst who Rea soned that if any negotiator could be considered Simpatico by the kidnappers of miss Patricia Hearst it would be Kun steer. When Kunstler arrived on the scene he stated i be expressed no opinion on the act it is Good bad or he did add however that a Kidnap geared to food for the poor could be the be ginning of an As the interviewer put it the Radical left eyes the Hearst Case As an action within the scope of politics a kidnapping As a kind of tool to pry Loose social so there you have it. The Noble crime. Or politics by gun and snatch. It is doubtful if or. Kun steer would allow similar gentle indulgences for the american revolution r y army which according to editor Murphy his captor claimed amounted to 233 members and six colonels. There is some question whether these figures Are solid. It is possible in fact that the american revolutionary army the first to achieve sexual Equality and that it really consisted of the kid Naper and his wife. But if the Radical left can not take a stand on whether the abduction of Patricia Hearst was Good bad or in different you can count on its outrage against the geor Gia caper. There la be Norte of this nonsense about action within the scope of redneck kidnappings will be denounced As however the trouble is that if you half excuse a Rad lib extortion on the grounds that it s the Only Way to get the attention of the establish ment what do you do about the Guy who claims that the liberals really Are the establishment and that he s trying to get their attention too some people actually feel that the liberals run the coun try.
