Athens Messenger (Newspaper) - January 23, 1961, Athens, Ohio The Athens messenger established 182& Frederick w. Bulb. Publisher 1898-1929 Gordon k. Bush. Publisher p. O. Nichols. Advertising Dir. Frs to Weber circulation Dir. The Kess eng Abr publishing co. 48 to. Union Athens. Ohio cabs. W. Reamer. Managing editor Jack Hilbert. New editor c. J. Sylvester. Classified mgr. Athens Ohio. Monday. January 23. 1961 on dedicated writers perhaps the most sustained of the criticisms of newspapers is that the bad things arc stressed and the Good things played Down. That sort of news treatment was never exercised the publishers of the messenger who always have striven to turn out a publication that is both newsy and no one could publish a newspaper and disregard an interesting murder or scandal people love that sort of a thing but the kind of readers we seek Are folks who want to know Good things about their neighbors. Nobody can say that our out in the Field writers have failed us in this regard. And a More faithful group of dedicated Home style writers cannot found anywhere. To represent a Small Community and All of our circulation Field is made of such towns would an impossible task for the uninitiated in newspaper work. So his her work Speaks her itself personal and healthy and As we said there is nothing of the Hustle and Bustle of big cities about the work of our writers. It is the Rule that the first Page of every modern newspaper with All its facilities for acquiring news from every part of the world should much the ramen a condensed digest of news of Many kinds from Many places. But what we have to offer and what we like Best is the everyday life stories and paragraphs about people. The stories which appear Back of our front Page Are the kind some times that can treasured in the family Bible and family scrapbooks. This is As it should life is Short and hard enough without featuring scandal from the first column to the last one in any newspaper. It is unfortunate that so Many of our readers do not know in a person to person Way the folks who Weeke after week and year after year toil to keep their communities on the map. Those of us who Deal with these folks deeply appreciate their loyalty and faithfulness. To know them restores Faith in a hurly Burly world. . Economic Outlook bolstered the economic Outlook of Athens and Meigs counties received a much needed boost this past week when three firms announced plans to Start Small Industrial operations in the area. The announcements were boosts to both the Economy and morale of the two counties where in recent years the trend has teen toward either closing or reduced activities of some Long standing industries rather than the arrival of new sources of employment. While the total Job opportunities of the three operations Are Small when compared to the manufacturing giants that have sprung up around the country in the past 20 years the estimated 45 new jobs that will created in Athens and Pomeroy Are most Welcome to communities where labor surpluses exist. I perhaps even More encouraging than the availability of new jobs is the Faith in the future these outside firms Are evidencing in Athens and Meigs counties. In a period when some of our Northern Ohio neighbors tend to look upon us As poor relatives with Little Hope of improving our status it is refreshing and encouraging to find outside investors who foresee sufficient business to Merit investment in area plants. The arrival in Athens of two firms concerned with the building and Highway construction trades certainly is an indication that More new Homes buildings and highways Are forthcoming. These firms plan to service More than just Athens. They have their eyes on a Market within a 30-mile radius. Needless to say the officials of these films would not invest Money unless they had investigated and found ample evidence that new highways and buildings will continue to grow in our Community. It in Pomeroy the eventual reactivation a new firm of a steel Plant that had been discontinued gives Hopes that some of those who lost their jobs will re employed and the Meigs county City a Economy will bolstered. Also deserving Merit in Pomeroy is the fight of civic leaders to bring a new Industry to the City. They displayed spirit courage and initiative which is commendable and which is excellent testimony to other interested industries that the people of Meigs county Are More than willing to do All possible for the betterment of their Community. Amos and Andy bookkeeping expansion of the social Security system to include medical care for elderly persons offers some Tough nuts to crack. Experience shows that in politics things ase advocated that Are unworkable. Richard Starnes columnist for the Washington daily news reveals some not very comforting statistics on the entire social Security setup. A in its first Quarter Century a he says a social Security took in $70 billion. It paid out $50 billion of that and has $20 billion of government Bonds in the Kitty. Against that $20 billion there Are obligations at the present rate of benefits of $360 if you wonder How the social Security system has reached such a pass the answer is simple. Or. Starnes cites a not unusual cases a pensioner who paid for three years starting in 1937. Then he retired. Since then he and his late wife together have drawn $13,490 in benefits while their total contributions to the fund had been $40. But in the Case of Young people starting to work circumstances Are reversed. They can never Hope to. Take out As much As they Are forced to contribute. There is Little justification for further taxing in the name of social Security already overtaxed younger workers to provide medical care for millions of elderly persons who Are both Able and willing to care for themselves. Senator Harry f. Byrd a distinguished Democrat who has As great an understanding of the fiscal problems of the Federal government As any Man does not mince words a i am opposed to. Compulsory medical service and hospitalization under the social Security system.

Swimming is not Only healthful but is especially valuable for girls since it improves their figure. A Flat chested woman can thus enlarge the Pectoralis Muscles of the Chest Wall via the breast stroke and soon increase her bust measurement. Since breast tissue is chiefly fat you can to enlarge the breast itself to any significant degree. But swimming will expand the underlying Muscles and thus push the breasts outward thereby giving a girl a More curvaceous profile. Regular exercise especially in the Long distance swimming events builds up a larger More muscular heart. And that is Good insurance against your dying from a coronary attack.

A professor who teaches in a University wrote to me that i was All wet about How dollars Are exported. He wrote that dollars Are not actually sent abroad in a package a or a suit Case or a Black bag but that one goes to a Bank in this country and makes the Transfer. No dollars really change hands Only bookkeeping credits. A lot this naive professor knows. Imagine a dope importer going to a Bank to get a letter of credit or to Send a draft or some other commercial document the Fri the secret service the narcotics Bureau would have him in prison in no time. The import of heroin cocaine opium and marijuana is big business involving hundreds of millions of dollars annually. The Center of this business is in Naples. Lucky Luciano denies that he has anything to do with it but it has increased since he has been exported to Italy. To legitimate this kind of Money it is physically sent abroad As is All tax evasion and tax avoidance Money. One would not expect a professor to know about such ugly and miserable mundane doings. If a real Effort were made to go after those who have used tax havens considerable american dollars could brought Home. Tax havens exist All Over the world but Switzerland is the principal tax Haven in the world. Many americans have Money there in numbered accounts. Swiss Banks act like fences in this respect. The Swiss refuse to give our government any information on the subject. Their profit on this dirty Money is so Large that Switzerland protects these tax evaders who Are actually Thieve. Perhaps the new administration will pump up enough courage to go after these Fellows. Again the professor is wrong. In these cases actual dollars Are transported abroad because a Bank transaction could involve the thief in a felony a even if he put his Money in a Swiss Bank in new York whose books could seized for inspection various agencies. Another Way to keep Dol i ars from going out of the country is to eliminate As far As is possible the use of so called civilian experts abroad the army. Men in the army ought to found who in civilian life can do the work of these experts. Say that an interpreter is needed. Surely out of our vast military Force interpreters in any language can found. As a Soldier writes me a those of us making a career of the military service expected to make sacrifices and we make plenty of them. We have acquired certain Basic fighting skills and we done to mind devoting a part of our time to maintaining these skills. But we have some intelligence and we re making a professional career for ourselves. This Means that we also Are technicians and that we cannot spend All of our time when there is no actual armed conflict engaged in Field exercises with a Rifle in our when our skills Are not utilized As they should when highly paid civilians take our jobs away from us and when Public opinion holds that we Are fit Only for making senseless sacrifices. Is it any wonder that we protest we have intelligence enough to know that All of this is not in the True interest of National the civilians attached to the army ought to hired Only if no one in uniform can do their work As Well. If we Are to have an efficient army in which officers and men reenlist and make it a life career there Mut no Competition Between Soldier and civilian within the army. The unnecessary civilians ought to brought Back to the United states. % american tourists do not generally create too much Good will anyhow. But that is not the Point. They Export dollars unnecessarily. In the Case of tourists of course the professor is right. They buy letters of credit or get travellers checks and they generally do not carry too Many dollars with them. But in the settlement for these letters of credit and travellers checks the balance could go against us and the actual settlement might have to made in Gold probably earmarked Gold. Until the Dollar is restored to sound value it is not necessary to stimulate tourist activities. Health and happiness Garry c. Myers dating habits when do teen agers begin to Date do they get their parents permission for the first Date is there a time and frequency limit parents Why so some teen agers not Date answers to these and other questions about dating were secured in a a research on dating a reported professor Paul h. Landis of Washington state University in a marriage and family living for August. Study made this study was made among 574 High school students 288 boys and 286 girls in cities of 10,000 to 40,000. It reveals that More than three fourths of them began to Date before 16, girls usually dating about two years earlier than boys. About three fourths of the girls and less than half of the boys sought their parents permission for the first Date. Time limits about half the parents of both boys and girls required them to in on week nights ten of clock. Most of the rest set Midnight As the limit. Almost half the parents held the line at two nights a week or less. The other half allowed three or More nights. Boys were Given More Freedom than girls. Parents differentiated More than three fourths of the parents allowed their daughters to go out Only with boys the parents knew and approved. About the same number of parents allowed the boys to go out with anyone. Most parents did no to require double dating and single dates were permitted most of them. Most parents were strict about the kind of activities planned on dates. Attending a a just any dance was strictly taboo. Also parents were generally concerned about liquor and about sons or daughters going to places where it was Likely to served. Most boys not dating gave Money As the reason. No car in the lower economic group almost two thirds of the boys Felt blocked in dating for Lack of a car. Also the boys named shyness and fear of being turned Down. Many Girts considered the boys Lack of a ear important v i in their not dating. Many girl Felt they could not for status reasons Date a boy without s car. About 80% of the boys and almost All Tbs girls said they did no to think a girl had to pet in order to popular. About going steady As a Nile those going steady rated steady dating the More interesting while those who did no to believe in steady dating thought that casual dating or a playing the Fields was More interesting. Most favored steady dating even before they reached the time of mate Choice less than a fourth of these Young people thought going steady should reserved for those seeking a marriage partner.
