Sign a pledge you can vote or words to that effect. Actually it is a move to make sure we Are who we say we Are. The old system was lax. A person just walked in and gave his name. There was no Check on whether he was eligible. Election boards in precincts like ours know most of the voters. A relative stranger by giving different names could have voted in All five Creston wards. He can still try it with the affidavit thing. But he does sign and that is quite a lever if something looks amiss. Cities and towns Over 10,000 have permanent registration which the voter has to do 10 Days before election.

Carson got such a kick out of it he sent poke his autograph adding a postscript a a done to sell this. By the Way Marcia is slated to appear on the Carson show one of these evenings. She son the Merv Griffith show quite regularly. A connection with former Creston residents came through a visit this week by or. And mrs. Tommy Pyeatt of Roswell new Mexico. He wanted to see our offset printing operation. He is with the Roswell paper and they Are installing the offset process. They were Here visiting because mrs.

Around the Rotunda May move school for police to Waverly site poke spun in another Way on a recent trip to Chicago. And he advises done to get into a cab with More than one person in it. He did As he left the Congress hotel for the train to Creston the cab pulled up at the door in the regular lineup discovered too late the cab had been hijacked by two thugs who in turn Blac jacked him about two blocks from the Union station and left him on the Street dazed and minus what Cash he had in Billfold. An off duty Chicago fireman picked him up some later and got him to a Hospital. He was there several Days before he came Home bruised Noggin Black Eye and ail. The other Day we wrote some things about the possibility of City and country combining certain forces into a single Over All governmental unit. They do this in Hawaii our 50th state. And it works. A couple of Days later noted a Story in the Oelwein la., Register. They were reporting on a number of Community meetings about Many problems one of them being City and county government. Here Are some of their suggestions use same Engineer and staff by county and City coordinate sheriffs office and police into one unit use county conservation staff to supervise City and town Parks and recreation facilities in county. By Harrison Weber Iowa daily press association Des Moines idea the possibility of using the abandoned air Force radar station Ai Waverly As the site of the state s Law enforcement Academy is being explored. Far the Federal government has not declared it surplus property. Tie course Load at Camp Dodge is presently limited to 36 Law enforcement officers. The Waverly radar station was equipped to handle 180 men. If new buildings were added at Camp this week the attorney Gen Lodge to triple the course Loa i 10 re tel a hii1a/i 1 a f unlike mrs. Bud Frederickson of Creston recently received a clipping in an Exchange of letters from mrs. Dale Ruby Yeadon of Montrose colo., telling of mrs. Yeadon a work it seems quite a few places Are thinking about coordinating and combining. Interesting development a this Way the county unit becomes More prominent. The other alternative is to make the cities and towns More Independent of the county units Combine the county units. We Are not so sure this is efficient business but the larger areas Are going to push it in an Effort to remedy their own financing problems. And they have the votes. Eral s office ruled that under existing conditions the Academy must be located at Camp Dodge which is just North of dc3 Moines. Not Only does the state statute creating the Law enforcement Academy specifically state that it quot shall be situated at Camp Dodge quot but the state has entered into a special agreement with the military to allow the Academy to use a portion of the grounds at Camp Dodge for this purpose. It took an act of Congress for the state to get this permission. Although an administration building costing approximately $250,000, has been constructed for the Academy at Camp Dodge some members of the Law enforcement Academy Council see some advantages in moving the Academy to Waverly if the site wore to become available. So it s estimated it would Cost in the neighbourhood of $1 million. On the other hand some Council members think the Waverly installation could be renovated for approximately $200,000 to handle nearly 100 men. With so Many demands for More state office space it s presumed the Academy s administration building could find other suitable state tenants. However this might require another act of Congress As Wellas action by the Iowa legislature. George Orr Iowa crime commission director Anda member of the Council emphasized that discussions thus far have been very preliminary. Quot to just want to explore the alternatives quot he said. Lights out shades of Lyndon Johnson and his Light bulb Economy kick in the White House. One of the recommendations of the governor s Economy committee was to turn off unneeded lights in state office buildings at night. Estimated annual savings $6,7o0. This is one of several dozen of the committee s recommendations which has been implemented by executive action. Altogether it s estimated by Hugh h. Clarke budget Economy coordinator that upwards of $5 million will be saved annually by recommendations which already have been put into effect. Drugs rep. Willard Hansen a Cedar Falls has requested an attorney general s opinion on whether state mental health facilities can be used for the treatment of drug users. He also wants to know if the attorney general feels that Federal funds can legally be received for this purpose. Hansen notes that unused space is available in some mental health centers in Iowa and wonders if this could t be utilized to meet the mushrooming drug problem. Lawrence e. Lamb m. D.

The explanation is that one Pound of fat tissue contains five times As Many calories As one Pound of lean muscle. Theoretically if you converted All the calories in one Pound of fat to muscle tissue you would gain four pounds net weight. With inactivity As the calories in Muscles Are converted to fat you lose pounds but not calories. If five pounds of muscle turns to fat you will lose four pounds net weight.

Opinions sex Prev de Are those of the writers and do not necessarily represent the views of the news advertiser. One Way traffic and our youth editor news advertiser As we All realize by now the main topic of almost everyone s conversation is either the Cowie Way streets or How our youth Are acting. Imagine the ones fighting the one Way streets now will be just As perturbed if we change Back to our former Lane of traffic. We Are living in changing times and will have to be flexible enough to adjust ourselves Togo along with it. We do have a perfect set up for one Way traffic East on Adams West on Montgomery and from Elm to Walnut. But Why foul it up by bringing in the rest of the streets in on the system such As Mills and streets West of Elm in the future if More one Way streets were needed they can always be added on. We do have Large trucks and a lot of traffic coming from South on Elm not familiar with our town that should go West on Adams that creates quite a problem. And to get to our Young people they Are not All Lazy and All bad have had and do have some of the finest in my employ and know Many others and can not see Why the majority should be judged by the minority. That is Why we should be flexible enough to look Forward and backward. Let s look backward a few years when we were their Ages. Is there much difference fads came and went then dress music dancing Etc. When you hear so Many say what s the matter with their folks quot letting them run like that and not knowing where they re did you Ever Stop to think they May not know where their folks Are. With so Many Busy people there Are two age groups that do not fit in our modern Day society both the youth and the aged and yet the two most important far More than any of us who try to exclude them. Our elders made us everything we have much More important than wealth and our youth will take Over tomorrow so let s All take time to show them both just a Little More respect.
