fR fff o +X +f 7. - The Sidney Herald, Sidney, Mont., Wednesday, October 13. 1971 0 pn ni io >+ ,, 'Kiwanis Apples R S - + Make You Healthy, N ATIONAL NEWSPAPER WEEK There will be ho brass bands and parades to signify the event. But Oct. 10-16 has been designated as National News- paper Week. This year, the thema of the week will be "News- papers-- Growing With America." During National Newspaper Week, editors must be forgiven if they blow their own horns a bit. For one week, they can offer rebuttal to the cynics who spend the othe 51 weeks dis- esreeing and finding fault with the news or editorial views or the local newspaper. There are thousands of these newspapers in INs country, and they stand as a symbol of the independence of our citizens. Beyond that, they ae the one and only regularly printed record of the daily events in the Ire of a community. A community without a newspaper is little more than a name on a map or a collection of dry statistics in the archives of some courthouse. Newspapers are the breath of fie. While we are reminded, during National Newspaper Week, that these newspapers are "Growing With America", it is well also to recall that growth without freedom would mean lime - and that newspapers are, in the final analysis, the voices of free men. WHAT IS A NEWSPAPER*. A newsletter is mar things to ma people. To some, it is a reality, a living textbook that records each passing day of world history; to others, it iS esee@e - a refuge of entertainment and relaxation after the daf s chores, To the housewife, it is ideas for new menus an6 new clothes and sensible buying. to the mother, seBgestionsfor raising the youngsters. To the teacher, a homework assignment ou current events; to schoolchildren, a notebook item. To the lonely diner, a cow@talon; around tim family supper ' table, a topic of conversation. To sperts and theater lovers, 'who and what is playing, when md where. T0 athletes and actors, scrapbook material. To an urnown, it brings fame; to a well-known, it furthers his name. To the publicity seeker, it is a haven; to the lmbllcity shy, a source of mmoyance, TO the seller, it means a quiek response; to the buyers, many selections. To some, it brings good newa; to others, sad tidings. To friends and neighbors, ii tells about promotions, school achievements and who got married, who was born, who died. To the voter, it is guidance; to a politiciau, friendor fne. To opinion searchers, it stimulates thought. To front perch sitters, it describes life beyond the horizon. To the immigrant, it is a schoolbook that helps him learn English; to hunters of truth, it translates the customs from which the immigrant fled. To the Hving, it is a source of freedom and hope; for the dead, a tribute to their vlrtuea. To the hard-working, dedicated wmen and men who produce the newspaper - the clerks, the circulation department, the printers, the pressmen, the proreaders, reporters, the editors, the business staff - it's a dally challenge to turn out the best possible example of their work, to provide service which is essential to the health and well-being of a growing, prosperous community. To all who read this newspaper it means uncensored news; in maw, other countries, censored propanda.

Wealthy and Wise' by Jaekie C O OO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO 00 O : SidneY Herald Mailbag I Publisher, The tiered; We appreciate your cow tern about the drug problem in Sidney, but we feel that your statistics are extremely inac- curate and you have done a considerable amount ot damage to.the entire school system, its students and the townspeople. We, as students, are better qualified to judge the extent of the drug problem because it applies to us. There is defln- ately a drug problem, but you have. exnggerated the problem that we have in our commudty. We cannot understand your use of one student'stminormed opionion in generalizing the per cent of students who have tried drugs. The "CASUAL" tone of your article seems to make fun of a very serious matter. MaY we suggest, in future articles cencerning ta pro- blem, you study the problem with more care before jeopar- dizing the reputation and the general welfare of the entire community. With deep concern The Student Council of Sidney Senior High School I Editor, The Herald; So yon don't understand mon- ey? Well who dons? You were taught not to understand money, so wlw should ym? Gladstone, who didn't take money for granted as most of us do, once said that the" study of money is a fruitful cause of insanity." Is that why all the literature and questionnaires put out by the Con Con candidates say not a word, not a word about the kind of money we are going to use in the sovereign state of Montana whose motto is "Gold and Silver?'' They don't want togo crazy -- No? Certainly the Founding Fa- thers who wrote the U. S. Con- attution should have known something about money or they should have kept silent on the subject, as the Con Con candi- datea are doing. They didn't. They asserted the sovereign right of a sovereign people to use gold and silver, traditiomtl for thousands of years, as money or "legal tender" in payment of debts, andthe states were forbidden to declare any- thing but that as"lugal tender," while the Tenth mendment for- bids the Federal Government to exercise ar power, this a sovereign power according to the Supreme Court, not author- ized by the Constitution. dictionary and yon'Uflnd 'gold and silver" asaprtmary mean- .i  all currency, naturally "Jteedicated merem. LaWyers, of course/ use a different dietimmry. To them it is "pe@er and ink." So let me aek y Have you usi or kept your hocks in gold  silver lately, or are you using Presi- dent Nixon's "floating," or ra- ther "welching" dollar, trying to do tothe worklwhatKlng George couldn't do to the Col- onists- force them to use a moneyless money in their ',money of account"? It ts really an emp dollar. That is wby it floats. At the Constitutional Conven- tion In Pladelpbia It was pro- posed to let the FederalGovern- ment "emit bills" (equivalent to making its notes a femper- ary legal tender) and the dele- gate frmn New Hampshire said he would rather reject the whole "plan" (Constitution) thonto al- low this. Even such a mild pro- position was voted down 9-3. James Madison, sometimes called the Father of the Constl- tution, declared in the Federal- ist Papers that anY state which did not make its currency com- pletely convertible to specie (gold and silver) is chaath Rs own citizens, citizens of other states and citizens of foreign countries -- the "floating" dol- lar. Wouldn't be have agreed that the denial of all specie by the Federal Government consti- tutes robbery (armed robbery) as exclaimed by one U. S. Sew ator in the days of F. C. R.? How nice we were not senttothe tower and had'our Sovereign heads chopped Even the Supreme Court de- clared United States notes tohe enconstlmtional as "legal ten- der," which is still the law of the land if there is any law and it hasn't been replaced byPertY policy and party politics. Will the real Founding Fath ers, therefore, please standup! Mama must have slipped some. where along the line! Whatlsthe real, the real Philadelphia Story? Controlling inflation is real- ly the easiest thing lnthe world. If someoaw doubles the price of the same product youhonght he- fore, just double theprice of the gold you have in your pocket, Pay him and you haven't lost a penny. It's that simple, except that YOUR gold is in Fort Knox and all you have in your pocket are abstract numbers in your bank account. So it is not inflation but your friendly banker and the friend- ly tax-collactor you voted for in a roundabout way who Is really giving you a SOVEREIGN rup- ing. It doesn't say confiscate but ,,regulate" the value of&old in the Constitution. No wonder farmers go broke while almost every town from Bismarck to Billings is sporting one or more new, palatial bank buildings. Not only have you been rob- bed, bet, an income tax time, your Ral Highness, the Amer- ican Citizen - Taxpayer has to declare, under the penalties of perjury, that he hasn't been robbed of the only dollar there is, the exchange value of gold. So how did the candidates for the upcoming nmcey changers convention pay their filing fees? With Montana's "Or PIsta", gold and silver money or with the broken'prom/sea the Fed- ersl Reserve Banks and the Treasury to pay if? Do you think that anyone rio- lating, technically, Ms oath of office before be is even elected should be entrustedwithwriUg a new one for you? Are the party politieiana so tired ofeousis- tently violating the old constt- tutims that they need a new one to violate? Maybe we had better take an- other look, a good look and find out why those who are so any ious to write a new constitution for us are so anxious to write a new constitution for us.

In "The Long Journey," Bar- bara Corcoran details the long horseback ride made across Montana by a 13-year-old glrl. Laurie James lived in aniso- lated mining area with her grandfather after the death by accident of her schoolteacher father and mother. When her grandfather's fail- ing eyesight deteriorated into blindness, it wss decided that Laurie must ride to Butte to summon her Uncle Arthur, for help. Grandfather did not trustpeo- pie and their ,,newfangled con- trivances" such as trains, buses or the telephone. Laurie was to stay away from traveled roads ca" towns as much as possible and to use the tele- phone to call "Uncle Arthur" only in case of emergency. Having never been outside of Hawkins Dry Diggings since she was three-years-old, Lau- rie knew nothing of the world in general and encounutred many exciting experiences. She stayed overnight with a lovely retired schoolteacher, learned the hemry of a beth tn a real bathlnb, enjoyed good music and 8raetons ttvn, spent honr s with her horse in a lake while a forest fire raged around her and rescued a small child that had strayed from home and fal- len over a ledge. She found the new world higiv ly acceptable but longed for her grandfather and the smaller, uncomplicated wId she had always known. Barbara Corcoran is a "transplanted" Moutanan, She received her M. A. degree at the University of Montana, Missoula, and fell in love with the state. After several years of teaching, she returned to Montana, where she has since lived. Author of several other books, she also does occasional fiction and non-fiction pieces for mngazincs.
