Carthage Press (Newspaper) - May 11, 1974, Carthage, Missouri Carthage press saturday May la 1974�? p-2 0be still it is so easy to forget the ancient command a be still and know that i am it is so easy to forget the image of Crist aboard a fishing boat upon a storm tossed sea surrounded by emotion Ridden panic stricken disciples but calmly rising to direct a a peace be we devote so much of our time to the making of noise for Little More than the Sake of noise concentrating upon the superficial and the temporary and smothering the sound of the a still Small voice of the eternal which constantly Speaks to us. We shout at god we sob and laugh and moan and engage in mental emotional and physical contortions in attempts to get his attention. Of course we Are the subjects of his attention All the time. Calm peace and Harmony can return to our lives dignity and healthy self respect again can become a part of our beings compassion and idealism can be returned to our society and the quiet strength of Faith founded upon a solid Rock can sustain us in every trial warding off hate and fear. All this and More can be our lot if Only we will remember to a be still and listen for the voice of Labelling imaginative but ambiguous names for meat such As a his and her steaks a a a Paradise roast or a charcoal Steak Are fast disappearing into oblivion thanks to a most Welcome new standardized identification Labelling program. The voluntary program implemented on a nationwide basis among meat retailers reduces the number of names for various retail cuts of beef pork veal and Lamb from More than 1,000 to approximately 300. It is a shoppers dream come True especially for the Young consumer unfamiliar with the subtleties of the meat counter or those new to an area who in the past have so often been confronted with a vast array of meats bearing regional names which sounded delicious but still failed to describe what was being purchased. According to the National live Stock and meat Board the majority of meat labels should now show 1 the species of meat. 2 the primal area or part of animal from which the meat was Cut. 3 the recommended retail name. An example would be a piece of meat identified As a species a beef a primal Cut a a rib and the recommended retail name a Eye Steak a with the Label Reading a beef rib Eye that same Cut of meat used to be known by such diverse names As a a Delmonico Steak a a Beauty Steak or a Spencer Steak a in different parts of the country and often in different stores in the same town. The system of uniform meat Labelling will eliminate confusion and make better buying decisions possible for the consumer. That is Good news any Way you slice easily we forget 25 years ago.

Kelley Fri director message from the director. May is a significant month for the Law enforcement profession. It began with Law Day a May i a which this year has As its theme youth and the Law. The. The 15th of the month is observed As peace officers memorial Day and that same week the 12th through the 18th has been designated National police week. It is Gratifying that Days Are set aside each year to Honor our profession and its responsibilities. I am sure my fellow officers Are encouraged As i am but genuine expressions of support a particularly for the increasingly difficult and dangerous role of the officer on the Street and in the patrol car. Even More important at this time of year it seems to me is the individual attention each officer devotes to his professions goals. Resolutions dedications speeches celebrations and memorials by supporters Are Fine. Beneficial As they Are of themselves they have no lasting value. Only the firm commitment of Law enforcement personnel to the ideals these commemorations extol gives them meaning and life. In a word this commitment is fortunately professionalism is not Only a popular term but a growing achievement throughout today s Law enforcement ranks. We should strive to keep it Foremost in our vocabulary and in our deeds. From such emphasis stems rewarding recognition of police performance. Ten years ago it was not uncommon for police officers generally to be slighted by Many As undereducated and poorly trained. Today these criticisms Are infrequent. Now with higher educational standards sophisticated equipment and vastly improved training efforts the police Are More Apt to be criticized for the efficiency of their techniques and programs. Regrettably some persons View certain modern police initiatives As threatening individual liberties to an unreasonable degree. Law enforcement of course has no intention of thwarting constitutionally protected rights. It must however continually seek new avenues to prevent and detect crime. Indeed it would be sorely remiss in its obligations to the Community and to its professional status were this not the Case. Our legitimate needs must be carefully evaluated and vigorously defended in the face of constructive criticism. This is a sign of professional maturity which is a cherished objective for All Law enforcement careerists. Criticism will always Bear on Law enforcement activities. Our responsibilities Are too demanding to avoid it. This is All the More reason for law7 enforcement officers to insure that professionalism characterizes All areas of their performance each Day of the year. Daily Bible thought when the chief priests therefore and officers saw him they cried out saying crucify him crucify him. Pilate Saith unto them take be him and crucify him for i find no fault in him.
