E i %/iAssoc,T,o ad lib by donna scheibe alexander Adlai Stevenson once said. "The beauty of democracy is that people get the kind of government they teserve." But do they? Have the American people been so bad that they deserved a dis- honest president, a currupt vice president, drunken and dissolute congressmen? Did we deserve leaders who conspired to murder leaders of other countries, overthrow governments which were sympathetic to our own, or destroy political enemies by probing illegally into their private lives? Do we deserve the political campaign we are having this ),ear when the leading Democratic contender is racking up delegate votes not because he is proposing ,solutions to the nation's woblems, but because he resuses to face any of the issues? Are we to blame because neither of the Re- publican candidates offers more than a choice between personalities? Is it our fault that the reglarl at the same time it performs fewer services and even those inefficiently? Are we responsible for the energy shortage, for esca- lating utility rates, while Congress, for political motives, prefers to punish the energy producers rather than curb the energy con- sumers? Will we deserve the disastrous consequences of this policy when utility companies and petroleum i t "producers are forced out of business and the govern- menL takes over? And will we bow our heads meekly and say, "We deserved it." when the government is rationing fuel and energy? Do we deserve forced busing, destruction of our public school system, the attrition of small businesses, the inequities of our judicial system, the blatant and uncontrolled dissemination of pornography and violence in all entertainment media? Have our sins been so many that we deserve infla- tion that denies many Americans one of the rights earnestly sought by the founders of this nation: the right to own property and a home? The answer, of course, is that the government is our creation and by that defi- nition we do deserve th'e currupt inefficient, and unresponsive bureaucracy we have established and are perpetuating in Washington. But as we created it, so we can change it... not by stayi horhlnd complain- ing about the plight, of the poor American citizen, a victim of his indifferent government. But by be- coming involved in local and state issues, by writing letters to our congressmen in Washington, voicing our opinion about proposed legislature, foreign aid, Supreme Court decisions, government spending and misspending. Most impor- tant, we can go to the polls at every election anE1 vote. to the editor :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: A Public Letter to Mrs. Malakoff News William Cartilage: iili I read not long ago in the Malakoff News that you would no longer be teaching upon completion of the .. 1975-76 term. After reading that news, and finally :.: gathering the adequate i i courage, l decided to express i! ' to you public some of the :: thoughts that 1 should have i.! expressed privately years !.! ago. :.: Certainly, I am not alone :+' among your former students i'i to have found your influence :.: ' reaching into my life. And I am also aware of my non- singularity when I say that some of whatever accom- plishments I've experienced, Steve Arthus Citizens State Bank Prornotes and some of whatever successes I,ve enjoyed have, Steve Ar00hus in no small part, been due to my exposure to you. Following the June 9th : Occasionally I am dis- Board Meeting of Citizens State Bank, Malakoff, Steve Sutton, President, announced the promotion of Steve Arthus to the position of Assistant Vice President. Arthus has been with the bank since April 22, 1975 working in the Operations couraged to find my back- ground lacking in some areas. This lack is not due to any teacher, student, or parent incompetency. Rather, I think it is due to a failure to concern ourselves with the lessons of life which lurk behind the mere facts connected with a particular subject matter under our examination. Too often a public school class room is especially over-looked by too many as a place to instill lessons that deal with problems other than those directly related to the assigned area of study. It was partially due to the efforts of a few dedicated teachers that I learned the invaluable "life-lessons" that are as necessary to know as any rule of grammar or fact of history. You were among those few educators that provided the com- ponents for a foundation upon which a meaningful life could be built. Your efforts as a teacher of English Literature and grammar have been reward- ing to you, I know. You have the right, to be justifiably proud of the academic accomplishments wrought during your career. How- ever, your efforts as a teacher of sound principles have been equally valuable to those of us fortunate enough to have benefitted from your instruction. Not only did pupils leave your classroom more literate for their having been there, but many, including most of all myself, left it with some of the weapons necessary to fight life's battles more adequately armed. Specificly, it is because Of the gratitude I feel for your influence as a force for good and Loan and Discount Area. Arthus is a graduate of North Texas State Univer- sity receiving a BBA Degree in Marketing in 1972. He is married to the former Denise M. Daley of Dallas, and they have three children. They are members of the St. Edwards Catholic Church in Athens. Steve is active in the summer base- ball program in Malakoff. Mrs. Marihelen ,let ter learned of the death of her 14-year-old grandson, Tracy Dean Nieman of Sierra Vista, Ariz., while she and daughter Robin Harris and mother Mimi Fain were vacationing in the far west.

The Jetter group went to Pikes Peak. and Idaho on the trip. They were in Yellowstone Park shortly after the Teton dam broke, and had to backtrack 250 miles in order to get into Idaho. They left Blackfoot after a night's stay as the Interstate began to flood. After visiting Sierra Vista, they returned home Satur- day. Robin says the only mountain she ever wants to see is the "gravel pit" between Malakoff and Cedar Creek Lake.
