U.S. Cars Cain follow the selfless example of the Wichita building trades, there would undoubtedly be more work for everybody. And after all, that's what a free economy is all about. The Phillips County Review Accent On The Obvious (From the Sedalia, Missouri Democrat) A team of University of Missouri sociologists has completed a three- year study of small-town elderly-- specifically, 1,716 persons 65 years or more in age living in 63 Missouri communities of 250 to 5,000 population--and has come up with an "index of life satisfaction." Among the findings: --Married couples scored higher on the index than did the widowed, the divorced, the separated or the single. --Those who had Social Security or in the competitive war private sources of income or both had and foreign auto makers higher scores than those on Old Age betroit, with "an assist from Assistance. is making major --Those who reported a decline in Sales of U.S. minis and income since 1960 had a lower life up and, for the first time satisfaction score compared to those sales are down. whose financial situation had not the major importers, changed or had improved. the major German and --Those who reported themselves as leaders, are experiencing "never lonely" had higher scores than buildups which in some those who were "occasionally lonely" forced them to cut prices, or "frequently lonely." and compact sales rise. --Those who classified themselves small cars, Pinto, as middle aged scored highest in life d Gremlin, registered sales satisfaction; those who considered fifteen percent in the themselves old scored lowest. months of the year. --In most cases, good health and total sales amounted to 248,000 high social participation were in that period.

The capital has long been one of the crime centers of the nation and is obviously on its way to becoming one of the havens for homosexuals. The estimate that one of every eighteen persons in the national capital is a homo should concern every American, because of these many are likely to be involved in the federal government. While one does not wish to prosecute or persecute these unfortunates, or abnormals (they often claim they are not unfortunates), American life and American social structure, in fact self- preservation and our national in- terests, are affected by the growth of homosexuality. Thus the trend should be discouraged and attacked in every way possible, as a matter of common sense. Applause During thePresident's recent visit to Moscow Americans were puzzled by the scarcity of applause given Mr. Nixon in his public appearances. In his first appearances the President received no applause. Gradually the Russians began to applaud when the President appeared. Toward the end of his Moscow stay an American questioned a Soviet of- ficial about the initially cool reception. He was told the Russian people wanted to know about the talks, the work and the accomplishments of, the meeting, before they applauded. "The Russian people never applaud for nothing," he reportedly answered. Obviously, the Russians haven't been conditioned by American television MC's, who nightly receive ovations just for coming onstage (for which most are already overpaid). From The Fi/es . . . . .

Walker of Dallas, Texas was arrested and thrown in jail beca u., he was leading a prayer vigil in a city park in the Dallas area.

I don't need an attorney to defend me while praying in a tax-supported city park which has so often seen the marches of anarchists." They locked him up! Gen. Walker, a hero of World War II and the Korean War ! When Jesus Christ needed His disciples the most, they either fled or fell asleep. When America needs defenders too many of her citizens are asleep.
