III I II IIIIIII II III I lll l ad lib by donna scheibe Bev Eads, who sets type for the Territroy Times news- papers, and I noticed months ago that we had a mutual problem. We weren't the only ones who noticed. Others kept commenting on it also. A fringe benefit of working for a newspaper is that one's horizons are broadened. Other things become broadened, too-especially for those of us who sit at a typewriter, or typesetting machine, for long hours every day, Our horizon- tals were broadening consid- erably, particularly our lower horizontals. Bey and I were painfully aware of our problem, an awareness increased by the helpful remarks of our kids. There's nothing like, "Gee, Mum, you're getting fat!" to increase one's awareness. Both of us fought our problem spasmodically. Be- tween us, I'm sure we experi- mented with every new diet that came along. We've tried instant breakfast three times a day and it worked fine during the day, hut sent us scavenging through the- refrigerator late at night. We tried low carbohydrate, high carbohydrate, no carbohy- drate diets, swore off starches and sugars, became experts on polyunsaturated fats, and continued broadening our horizontals. We even went through the eight glasses of waver a day scheme which did give us a lot of needed exercise, and healthier kidneys, but had little results where we needed it most. We ate grapefruit, cottage cheese, hard boiled eggs, and yoghurt, tried the wine and cheese diet which was inter- esting and sometimes exhilar- ating, and we even struggled valliantly with the "think and grow thin" philosophy. We thought so hard it made us hungry and we grew fatter. Finally we tried our own version of the Weight-Watch- ers program. We challenged each other to a weight losing contest. Every Monday morn- ing we had weigh-in at the office and the one who lost the least amount of weight that week had to pay the other person a dollar. Our Battle of the Bulgers attracted keen interest from the news staff, and every Monday morning Bey and I would arrive at the office to find the scales in the middle of the floor and the office staff waiting with pencil and paper to record our progress. I'm not sure which inspired us the most: competition, the loss of a dollar, or the witnesses who gleefully totaled our assorted poun- dage, but it worked! Only it worked for Bev better than it did for me. Three weeks in a row I paid her a dollar. The next two weeks she gave me a dollar, and between the two of us we lost almost 40 pounds. Then we bought three more newspapers and in the con- fusion of reorganization and the added work, we declared a temporary armistice in the Battle of the Bulgers. In the past seven weeks we've learned that publishing four newspapers has broad- ened our horizons even more and the 14 to 16 hour a day work load has taken care of our horizontal problem. Unfortunately we've been much too busy to enjoy our triumph...but one of these days, when things calm down, we're going to celebrate with a victory dinner. Hmmmm...I | Myway Upholstery | !

"What's the matter with them city councilmen-thinking of raising taxes when we can't hardly pay the ones we got now?" griped the elderly man to his crony, as they' sat on the stroet corner watching the traffic pass. Sir, did you vote in the last election? "We've got to do something about our school system," fussed the irate young mother to her best friend over the telephone. "Do you know they sent Charlie home the other day because they said his hair was too king? That hair and dress ide is absolutely ridiculous! Don't they know that what they put in a kids head at school is more important than what he's got on it?" Mother, did you wte in the last election? "Our roads are terrible!" complained the subdivision houseowner. "I pay my taxes to the county and I'm entitled to decent roads and better services flom the county commissioners." Mister. did you vote in the last election? "1 sure don't like what they're doing down in Austin." protested the businessman. "Seems that the legislators don't care about anything but spending our money and raising their salaries all the time." Citizen, did you vote in the last election? "Prices are terrible!" moaned the housewife in the supermarket. "We can't afford to eat meat an)' more. It takes everything we make just to keep food on the table." Lady did you vote in the last election? Americans enjoy one of the rarest privileges enjoyed b v citizens of an)' country in the world. Our constitution guarantees us the right to choose the people to run am government on all levels -city, county, state, and national-school boards, and other taxing districts. Our votes put people in office, give them a chance to continue doing a good job for us, or remove them if the)' are unsatisfactory. Yet less than 15 percent of the qualified voters in this area take the few minutes necessary to g(; to the polls to vote in any election. Eight)" five percent of us consistently h>se our only opportunity to do something positive about policies and people who affect our standard of IMng. the wellare of our children, and the future of our conmmnitv. Much is written these days ab<mt the "silent majority" which is most of us average citizens who are tqng discriminated against by the ve|'7 vocal minority groups. Ahv should an)' groul) of Americans t)e silent when we have the most potent means of comrnurdcation available to anyone in thc world? The righl to vote. Actually there is no silent majority. People who are discontented rarely keep their mouths shut and suffer in silence.
