In the letter he examined the pros and tons of the liquor Issue for the Benefit of voters who will ballot on Abc stores tuesday. At the end. He suggested that the problem is one of moderation and the Way to achieve it is to put phenolphthalein in booze that a the same stuff they put in Elax. If you Don t know what Elax is. Forget it. Because that s As specific As i can get in this Here family newspaper. Anyway Lyon said the Medicine would cause a Quot disagreeable reaction Quot in him or her who imbibed More than two ounces of the spiked booze at a sitting another citizen responded in a letter to the editor to the effect that that was the dumbest thing he had Ever heard of. For one thing he pointed out the disagreeable reaction could take hours. By that time the imbibed could be too drunk to care or even notice. Well i for one. Don t think that Lyon s suggestion was the dumbest i had Ever heard. I happen to remember when practically everybody was drinking an elixir called had Ecol and i Drew a parallel from that. The stuff had the kick of a mule in additional to its Many other medicinal benefits. Of course As one might expect of anything that would keep a Chap both bombed and regular the stuff sold like crazy for a Long time. Even Little old Gray haired ladies Quot took Quot it never once suspecting that they had blown Heck out of their proud claim that alcohol had never touched their lips. My Point is that Lyon s suggestion was not totally without Merit just Damn close. A ii Hai nothing to do with housing up booze with purgative but it jut something that craned my mind while i Waii ii Ashing my Hunt. La n the word quo exigency. The reason i Bruin it up is that you Don t hardly Ever see that word anymore and that s really a shame because it is a Heck a flood word. I came to know and respect the word exigency during of arid Hor la while serving my country proudly if not Genously Down at in air base in South Carolina. As a clerk in base Headquarters. I was in Contact with people who wrote the orders which transferred soldiers from one place to another. The orders i quickly observed almost invariably started out Quot due to the exigencies of the service so and so is hereby transferred to such and such it was obvious to me that somebody at the top of the military Heap had come across the word exigency and had come to Admire it As i eventually did the order had been passed Down for All personnel to use the word whenever anything was to be done in the name of exigency. There is one thing however which has bothered me about this All these years i just can to help but think about All those poor unsuspecting soldiers who were moved helter shelter across the map because of an exigency a and never knowing the exigency or worse even caring who Are sick or have a fever on the Day of the clinic or anyone who has to have a tetanus shot within 24 hours prior to the clinic. Those Over 18 years of age and under 60 Are eligible. People wishing to Lake the shots should fill out the consent forms which have appeared in area newspapers before appearing for immunization area weather to Clear Cool the threat of rain was to disappear today with a High temperature in the Low to Middle 60s under partly sunny skies according to the Weatherman. The forecast Calls for Clear and cooler tonight with a Low in the Middle 30s monday is expected to be mostly sunny with a High in the upper 50s to Low 60s the extended forecast Calls for Clear tuesday and thursday and a Chance of rain on wednesday. Mizell Neal in tight race by Phil Spears Enterprise staff writer democratic congressman Steve Neal and his Republican opponent former congressman Wilmer Mizell. Have raised a Cloud of dust in the fifth District battling for that area s seat in Congress but now that the Campaign is drawing to a close and the dust has begun to Settle it is up to the voters to decide it is an indication of the interest the race has generated that Democrat Jimmy Carter and John Connelly and Ronald Reagan a both republicans a have appeared in Winston Salem in behalf of their respective party members. Neat and Mizell. Mizell is out pending neat approximately two to Ane at last count both candidates Are relying heavily on outside support it will be a tight race by Neal s own admission. According to a poll sponsored by Neah voters of the fifth District Are about evenly Wilmer Mizell divided Between the two Mizell was surprised two years ago when he was unseated by the uninitiated neat. Up to that Point the Only political experience Neal had Wax in conducting an unsuccessful Campaign for his Cousin Smith Bagley who was trying for Mize s seat Mizell had previously soundly Defeated opponents with Victory margins ranging up to 64 per cent. Although watergate rocked the Republican Nixon administration. Predictions were during the 1974 race that he would retain his seat. He did not take neat seriously enough it has been a Tough Campaign with Neal in the defensive much of the Lime Mizell has misleadingly called Neal a Quot Liberal Quot and a Quot budget Buster Quot when by All counts of the special interest groups who provide ratings of congressmen and senators. Neal stacks up As More of a moderate 9 Neal admits he has been on the defensive much of the time and said during the televised debates in Winston Salem that he did not know How to respond to Mize s charges he said he thought about ignoring them but also Felt that he had to respond at the same time Mizell does not respond in the same manner to setbacks As does Neal Neal feels he Stephen l. Neal must defend himself and does Mizell on the other hand has spoken not a word about the National Council of senior citizens refuting his Campaign claim that he is a Friend of the elderly members of the National Council rate the congressmen on their votes on legislation of interest to older americans according to a recent release the i i i i pm a Injo us a a a a rum a a a a a a on the scene pointers club there will be a special Call meeting of the pointers club at 5 p in sunday at the Carl Chavis Myca singles seminar three specialists will discuss finances in the fifth in a series of seminars for Quot singles and the single again Quot the seminar will be held monday at 7 30 at the chamber of Commerce speakers Are to Arm Fleming on budgeting.

Interest is High in the presidential contest and a Good turnout is expected but local political leaders Are afraid Many voters will just cast their presidential ballots and ignore the local and state contests both parties have completed extensive registration and these along with the usual interest found in a presidential contest by pushed registrations ban Dolph past the 42,<w Mark. The fourth District organization tagged Mizell Quot no Friend of the elderly Quot a circumstance that May make a difference in the race is the amount of time each a candidate spends personally meeting the people Neal takes a hand in personally running is own Campaign. A mistake according to professional Campaign managers ideally the candidate should spend All time available meeting potential voters Neal cannot do that since he has hts fingers in running his Campaign Mizell. However has employed a full time Campaign manager and spends All his time on the Campaign route in a tight race such As this. Time spent with the voters could make All the difference although Neal has said he would not attack his opponent personally As has Mizell. He has become so frustrated with being on these Mizel on 20a High Ike Andrews congressional race which involves democratic incumbent congressman pc Andrews of Siler City and or Johnnie Gallemore of Durham has found some interest As Gallemore has hit hard at Andrews driving record and his voting record in Congress. Republican Gallemore is not Given too much Chance of upending the popular Andrews but some say he could be laying a groundwork for a stronger Challenge in two years Andrews has received several traffic tickets which he says he can t explain except for one due to the failure of a Speed control device on his car but he says his voting record in the Congress is As Good pm better than Many of the other North Carolina delegation members. Andrews at a news conference last week in Asheboro said he planned to spend More time in Washington during his next term and less time in the fourth District As he has done in the past he said the fact he has the state Capitol in his District has caused him to have to spend a lot More time Here than in Washington. In in of a in or. Johnnie Gallemore or. Gallemore a 38-year-old Duke University psychiatrist who also holds a Law degree. Is seeking his first Public office the state House races in Randolph have been the most vocal of All As democrats Jack Hugh of Asheboro and see vote on 20a let s get Playboy out of politics America s thinking is in scary shape if the headlines of the past few Days Are any indications. In a time when the Economy unemployment. And Many other issues beg for attention Playboy Magazine grabs the most headlines. Carter in Playboy Ford refusing to be in Playboy. Carter wishing he had t been in Playboy bord asking to be in Playboy. Ford not asking to be in Playboy Carter being accused of being a Playboy Hugh Hefner reigning supreme let s get off the Playboy kick there must be other things to talk about before in essay s election. Why done to we just vote not to make Hugh Hefner Secretary of state even if Kissinger resigns that would show him and his millions of readers what should really be grabbing the headlines in this apathetic voters turned off season is that voters have to decide tuesday Between the old and the new the tried and the untried the known and the unkown Quantity Jiminy a Arter of course is the new untried comparatively unknown Quantity yet that we know about the know Quantity is not very inspiring president Ford As countless people have observed is a Good and decent Man he is so Good As to be Dull the United states has not been inspired by a dynamic Leader in so Long that voters seem to be Drifting around in an apathetic state it would not be surprising if Hugh Hefner a name were the ballot to see him get a hunk of the Quot turned off Quot vote then there is Jimmy around by Fay Marks Carter known in the South and particularly to the people of Georgia but untried nationally. He has my vote not because of the great things he has done so far but because of the Promise of things to come. He also is a Good Man a but not Good to the Point of being plodding and Dull he offers something that has been missing in presidential elections in the last few years Hope in Ford i see no Hope for any drastic changes there s no Hope for a dramatic new tomorrow. He might keep us on the status quo but How Many americans Are satisfied with that7 How Many want to keep our country exactly like it is also i see Carter As an exceptionally intelligent person he knows that East Europe is not free of russian domination Ford knew too five Days later he said that what he really meant was that East europeans Are free in their hearts but America can to wait four Days live Days or even one Day to Clear up such assertions even Carters critics recognize his keen analytic abilities. That he has Superior intelligence has not been challenged. No presidential candidate since 1960 has been faced with the Prospect of a televised debate during his Campaign and no presidential candidate has had to debate an incumbent president Carter has held his own or has been judged the Winner in All three debates. This is quite a record for someone who is just campaigning for the office of president a displaying the ability to match wits and facts with the person who already occupies that office it s a Well known fact that there is Security in a the old a. The old hat the old Hoin place the old friends the old ways of doing things there is Security but often nothing else a no enthusiasm no Hope no excitement no inspiration for the future what we already have is not needs Sarilia always the Best that s Why Carter with his enthusiasm for new ideas and his religious commitment that his most avid critics seem unable to crack will have me pulling the lever beside his name tuesday.
