A party of hunters composed of Mark Farnsworth and Perry Cox of
Auburn and Army Hardman of Harrisville passed through
Glenville a few days ago with a subject of the animal kingdom now unknown in the
wild in West Virginia. The party, including the wives
of the members, was returning home from an eight-month camping trip on the
waters of Bear Fork and Steer Creek. They had a live baby elk--perhaps the last
to be captured in this state--which was the chief object of attention among a
whole menagerie of living denizens that had been captured.
Another very interesting specimen was a Belgian fox. This
animal, a native of northern regions, is about twice the size of our native fox.
For 17 days, Hardman was lost in the forest. The last two days
he spent in prayer, to which he said he owed his deliverance.
The hunters had quite an array of small arms: 10 shotguns, 11
rifles, one French machine gun firing 100 shots a minute, and many smaller arms.
A Mockin rifle, which had been presented to Farnsworth by
ex-President Roosevelt and used by him on his South American trip, attracted a
great deal of attention.
Annette A. Adams was appointed assistant United States
district attorney at San Francisco on Monday. She is the first woman in the U.S. to occupy
this position. This is believed to be a recognition of women’s suffrage.

Social Security payments bring over $63,000 a month into Calhoun County. That comes to over a quarter of a
million dollars a year to this little county. Quite a nice sum, isn’t it? And we
expect that most of this money is spent right here at home, for the essentials
of life, like food, clothing and shelter.
It is hard to imagine what our elderly, disabled, widows and
orphans would do without their monthly Social Security benefits. These payments
enable these people to live out their lives in dignity. Through their
contributions to the Social Security fund in their working years, they have
earned, for themselves and their families, this way of life.
It is evident that the Social Security system has proven itself
to be able to do its job well, in a method that is equal to all, that plays no
Throughout the years, the Social Security system has been
strengthened--more people have been covered--benefits have been increased to
cover the rising cost of living. It has continued to function well. The trustees
of the fund report it is in actuarial balance. It plays no favorites. Everyone
has an equal opportunity under the Social Security system. It is the tried and
proven way to handle the problem, of the retired, the orphaned, the disabled.
A further benefit to Social Security recipients is the present
proposal that a modest increase in monthly benefits be made (as has been done
several times in the past), or that those who choose might have a program of
medical and hospital benefits. This would be a choice. Medical care is
expensive, so no doubt most would choose the medical care plan. This would again
follow the tried and proven plan.
Now, contrast this tried and proven plan with the present
hodgepodge system of the present medical care for the elderly under the
Kerr-Mills bills. Did you know that only 26 out of the 50 states have been able
to implement this program. What about the elderly in the other 24 states?
Actually, six states spend 89% of the Kerr-Mills money for the MAA plan, and even those who get the biggest bite,
like Gov. Brown of California
and Gov. Rockefeller of New York,
are dissatisfied with the results, and call the program a failure, falling far
short of its goal.
Large amounts of federal funds are now going toward medical care
for the elderly, but why play favorites? We are pouring millions into an
unequal, unworkable plan.
It is the contrast between the unequal plan of the present
system, with the proposal for medical care under the true and proven Social
Security system, that is proposed. Of course, it must be paid for. We are paying
for the present inequities now.

has purchased a heart monitoring system from Hewlett-Packard. It is the number
one cardiac monitoring system in the U.S., according to hospital
What makes the Hewlett-Packard System so superior is its greater
transmitted signal strength. Other monitoring systems use VHF (very high
frequency), which may pick up noise and static from TV stations, X-ray machines,
computer terminals, and fluorescent lights.
The HP system uses UHF (ultra high frequency), and does not pick
up noise or static. The signal strength is so great that the patient can be
monitored in any room or hall of the hospital. The hospital has had to apply for
an FCC license to operate the unit, because of signal strength.
