GlobeGarette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE KGIO 13001 ls pm pm ThursdaJ A Little Inflation Leads to a Lot 1JINETEEN fiftyseven has been an important year for celc b r a t i n g important historical events It drew thousands of visi tors to Jamestown Va on the occasion of the 350th anniversary of the first English settlement in America It also witnessed the arrival of the Mayflower as a re minder of the settlement of the First Massachusetts Colony in 1620 With these heritages of the past in mind we might now fix our sights on another celebration date the 200th anniversary of the birth of the United

aggression It is these inner weaknesses that need primary attention in the months and years ahead With this stated and under stood suppose we get on with our story What are things going to be like

a bound less faith in the future of our country T am confident that with its free institutions its system of free enterprise its emphasis on religious life and the means we have for maintaining an
