Tomorrow morning monday the commissioners will Seal the Fate of both bids.

There have been other times w Hen the itch to write has struck on sundays in fact that s How itch was born it was ignited by an inability to wait until next thursday to expound in the old a pipe lines format. This time its not so much a desire to scratch As the fact that the mail came in without a a a thirteen column from dad this week. He son the first real vacation he a taken in several years somewhere in California we assume. He just might have relaxed so much he forgot to write a column at All or forgot it until he knew it was too late to Send. If he forgot it completely it la be the first time in 45 years or so. It seems appropriate to say a word or two about the first of the new presidential debate series which began thursday night. A realm of thought i find interesting and Hope you do is the similarities and the differences Between the 1960 Kennedy Nixon debates and the Ford Carter variety. The opener in the current series resembles the 1960 slug outs in these ways 1.the democratic candidate Carter is younger and handsomer than the Republican As was 1960�?Ts Democrat Kennedy. 2. Carter like Kennedy projects More Charm and a More intellectual approach to the debate atmosphere he uses bigger words in a faster flow than president Ford although nothing like As fast As Kennedy. Carter also has better Eye Contact with the television camera than Ford and projects somewhat better As did Kennedy. 3.Carter is the cooler and less emotional of the two debaters As was Juk. The places where the similarities end and the discrepancies show up struck me this Way 1. Ford has much More organization of his arguments than Carters and Kennedy was Well ahead of Nixon in that area. 2.Ford Speaks less intellectually than Carter. And thus in a More Down to Earth manner. Although somewhat less beguiling he seems More genuine and has a More a Down to Earth image a distinct advantage in this Campaign. Nixon never seemed Down to Earth or at ease with the audience. Ford does. 3 Nixon As an incumbent elected Vic president in the popular Eisenhower administration had everything to lose and nothing to gain by entering into debate with the lesser known senator Kennedy. He started the debates ahead and ended them behind. Ford started out better known than Carter too but he was not elected to either the vice presidency or the presidency so he has less to lose by head to head confrontation than did Nixon. He also was running behind Carter in the polls before the debates and undoubtedly will begin to catch up More and More. He also has to make a lot of people forget they Ever heard of Ronald Reagan and he a doing a Good Job of that. Our picks for the Best arguments of both men read like this i. Fords beat were the comments about How much the expense of Georgia a state government Rose after Carter got through reorganizing and streamlining it and his catching Carter in error when he tried to portray Ford As the Champ in a number of vetoes for All time lots of presidents used Many Many More. See itch to pm. 3 Hospital joins Cost monitoring Pecos county memorial Hospital has been formally recognized by the american Hospital association As an Active participant in a program to More effectively Monitor Cost management. The program involves the sharing of Cost data submitted by nearly 3,000 health care institutions As a Means for these facilities to compare their own Cost control effectiveness with others of similar size.
