Will To Work According to late reports, wages and salaries climbed four times as much as output per man - hour durb,.g the first three months of 1972. U. S. Secretary of Commerce Peter G. Peterson has urg a "crusade" to boost productivity. A spokesman warns that, "The real issue today is the survival of this country as a significant factor in the world's economy. This predicament is the result of many things, in- eluding the high costs of labor and material, trade barriers which inhibit our corn. petitiveness in foreign markets, and society's legitimate demands for increasing ex- penditures for environment control." The business spokesman also observed that greater productivity cannot be legislated or achieved by Presidential decree. He called for the restoration of the "will to work" together with pride and quality as an integral part of productivity.

The Yellowstone swimmer picked in the Sidney Herald's special section "Roaming The Gartside Lake was framed for one who lost his life in this river, and there have been others. Yours turly, Rose Arvys Levno Credit Where Due Editor, Sidney Herald; Before I am roundly and soundly denounced as a glory- mongering carpet-bagger, I should like to clarify a rather consequential ommission in the copy on the cover picture of last week's Herald. Said picture depicted me working on the model of Fort Union which is the replica entirely from scratch :seulemenL The fact is that the crude structures for this model were originally assembled by a Sidney eighth grade class in 1964, and have languished in forgotton storage at the fairgrounds since their premier showing that year. What I did was to salvage those ravished remnants from their moldy grave and refurbish them to their present state of display. Wiout the labors of those children, such a task would certainly have consumed more than mere "spare time." I could never commit so egregious a faux-pas as to claim all the credit when it is so blatantly due others. David Shannon ::::::::CHAMBER NEWS and VIEWS ::::::::::::.': ::::...':::..+':;.mm.

Cloth- bound, $7.50; paper, $4.95. Lily Casey spent her lifetime on the frontier in Texas and New Mexico. In 1867, when she was five years old, she went with her parents, Robert and Ellen Casey, in a covered wagon to New Mexico, walking much of theway after an Indian raid robbed them of much of their livestock and provisions. Her parents' ranch, located on the Pecos, soon became a stopping place for all who passed that way, and it was common for the Caseys to feed and house anyone needing either accommodation. Among them were such now notorious outlaws as Billy the Kid who to them was simply Billy Bonney, one of the tougher men of the times. by white renegades attached to one faction of the Lincoln County War instigators. Since neither of her two older brothers was strong physically and her mother was partially crippled, Lily assumed leadership of the family. John Chisum, cattle king of the Pecos, and Ashton Upson, Casey store clerk and teacher in the Casey home, were per- sonal friends of the family and became their invaluable counselors. Lily was well educated for the times and at the age of 17 was a teacher herself. Before she was 20 she bad experienced all the rough elements that are inevitable in the settling of a new area in the West - Indian fights and constant livestock raids; gunfights where men were often killed with little or no provocation; depraddations committed by both Indians and whites. From childhood Lily mericana events as they occurred aroudd her. This, coupled with her remarkable memory in later years, and by letters, documents, clippings and pictures, form the basis of this highly interesting account of life on the New Mexican frontier. Part three of the volume, "John Simpson Chisum," is perhaps her most significant contribution to southwestern history. Chisum's long lost personal diary is in- cluded and gives an accurate insight into the character of this controversial pioneer figure. Eve Ball is the author of many books on southwestern United States history, including "In The Days of Victoria" and "Ma'am Jones of the Pecos", both published by the University of Arizona Press, and both previously reviewed in this column. period.
