BOHATY TO HAVE CHURCH DAY AT GAS STATION JUNE 26 “Please Make It Work for Other Kids“ WAINSCOTT to WASHINGTON ’ Next Saturday night Center- poxtt youth will sponsor a round and square dance from 7:30 to 11 pm». in Centerport School.

WAINWRIGHT June 26 “Bob” Bohaty will turn over his service station to men of the Centerport Church who will “man the pumps,” s-i- monize _your car or will give your car a tune-up. A percent- age of the receipts for this day will go to the Centerport Church Building Fund as will the tips which will be greatly appreci- »ated. The House of Representatives last week passed a new social se- curity‘ bill, which has been sent to the Senate for their action. I voted for the bill, as it gave a much needed increase in pay- ments to our older people. It also liberalized the amount an older person may earn before going “out of bounds” on his or her social security. However, one phase of this bill was, to me, not at all appeal- ing. It will‘ now be compulsory for farmers, lawyers and certain other groups to participate in the program. Were it technically possible, I would have struck the “compulsory\ requirement for these groups from the bill. It does not seem proper to compel farmers and self~employed per- sons to join in this program. It is more understandable for the ordinary worker to ‘partici- pate in a common cause; The farmer, lawyer or other self-em- ployed person is in most cases ‘his own boss. Under the Ameri- can democratic concept of “free- enterprise,” the employer or “boss” should properly take care of himself. I do not believe ‘peo- ‘ple should rely on the state for economic security. While I rec- ognize a certain duty on the part of the state to protect the weak and the aged through social se- curity, I deplore a further step which would tend to stifle initi- ative on the part of many of our citizens.

The strength of our govern- mental form lies in the fact that it allows a man to rise above his fellow men. We cherish “individ- ualism.” Yet, because of social changes in the Twentieth Cen- ‘bury, the state has had to regu- late and control the rules, so that one man will not trample down or injure other men in his rise to success. If you wish to share two weeks of your summer with one of these less .fortunate children please call Mrs. Max Fields of Filmore street at HU4—5705J who is the ‘Chairman for the Fresh Air program in our area. The committee will do its best to any preference you may have as to religion, age, sex, etc. The Fund pays for the chi1d’s transportation and any expense such as medication. All that is asked of you is to furnish lodg- ings, food and a happy time. YMCA Total Goal ls $52,000—Advance Gifts Already $10,000 at least $15,000.

The meeting which saw both horse- play and serious work was joint- ly presided over by Congress- man Stuyvesant Wainwright and County Judge, Fred J. Munder, General Chairman and Master of Ceremonies respectively. Con- gressman Wainwright echoed Findlay when he told the vol- unteer workers, the Huntington Y=MCA has more calls from in- dividuals, groups and clubs ask- But should the state provide complete economic security for farmers, the management class, and the self-employed? Does this not tend to cut down ,a man's desire to rise» in the society in which he lives? If a man knows that his government will always care for him, he may well say: “Why save for the future? Why try to advance myself? The state will always take care of me.” Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Drasal of Bobchan have as guests, Mr. Drasal’s mother, Mrs. Mary Dra- sal, Mr. and Mrs, R. H.

But now the time has come for explana- tion to keep up with the growth of the past few years. With those words Duncan M.

The Kick Off meeting room was decorated with pictures, props and charts depicting the drive theme, “An Airline Cross- Country Race.” The Campaign Progress Chart is a map of the United States and standings of the airlines or divisions will be shown -on the map after each report meeting. Attractive Air- liner stewardesses were on ‘hand to add beauty to the meeting and cheer the workers on. Judge Munder said if Huntington citi- zens wishing to make contribu- tions to the ‘Y’ are not contacted within the next week or so, should call HUntington 4-4242 and the YMCA staff will send somebody to see them.
