Government Is Like Fire
rjiRADITlONAL, HISTORICAL LIBERALISM was based on a
doctrine which was profound and simple at the same time.
The founders of this nation all subscribed to it, wholeheartedly
and without reservation. It lay in the knowledge that all
embracing government is the enemy of human freedom. George
Washington expressed that idea vividly in these words: "Govern
ment is like fire, a dangerous servant and a fearful master."
But now, as Captain Eddie Rickenbacker said in a recent (
speech, ". . . by some queer twist of language, the modern
socialistic liberals are those who ceaselessly strive to pile up
more and more power of government in Washington. Bureau
crats from Washington swoop like vultures over cities large and
small to infest and assault the countryside. Federal regulations,
decrees, reports and questionnaires find their way into every
business office, every home, ever)' school, and every church in
the land.”
Strong words? Indeed they are — and they are totally
justified. Liberalism is an honorable word. But it is defamed by
those who would extend, apparently without limit, the power of
giant bureaucracies over the rights and freedoms of the people.

Service. The appointment is for

Justice Welch is a member of
the Chickasaw Indian Tribe and
represents the third of four genera
tions of a family in the legal pro
fession. Both his grandfather and
| father practiced law in Indian Ter
ritory and after Statehood.

NEW ANTIBIOTIC RELEASED
BY BRISTOL LABORATORIES
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (Special) —
Polycillin. a new kind of penicil
lin, has been released for shipment
by Bristol Laboratories Division
of the Bristol-Myers Company.
This new drug, available in cap
sule form, cures diseases which
could not be controlled by peni
cillin in the past.
For the first time physicians
will be able to use penicillin in
treating conditions which have
required use of relatively toxic in
jectable drugs and broad-spectrum
antibiotics. This is significant,
Bristol scientists point out, because
penicillin has a high degree of
safety and kills bacteria. The
oral so-called broad-spectrum an
tibiotics merely inhibit the growth
of disease-causing bacteria but do
not kill them.
The earlier penicillins have, for
the most part, been effective
against many of the other cate
gory of germs known as “Gram
negative’ organisms.
"Gram-negative” germs cause
many of the common ear, nose,
throat and respiratory infections
as well as certain kidney and in
testinal illnesses.
The average man's body has
enough carbon for 9,000 lead pen
cils, enough sulphur to rid a dog
J of fleas, enough fat to make seven
i cakes of soap, and enough iron to
make a single fair-sized nail.

Fishing Changes
Announced by State
JUNEAU (Special) — Major
changes in commercial fishing reg
ulations for 1964, adopted by the
Board of Fish and Game, at Ket
chikan, in December, include:
Sub-district No. 3 of the Yukon

Slough near Marshall upstream to
the mouth of the Koyukuk River,
will be open to commercial fish
ing 6 p.m. Monday to 6 pm. Fri
day, four days a week, until the
quota of 3,000 king salmon is
taken Commercial fishermen fish
ing this sub-district can not trans
fer and fish in sub-districts No.
1 and No. 2 at a later date.
Those persons licensed to fish
commercially in Norton Sound,
with the exception of sub-district
No 1, and the Kotzebue district,
shall not be allowed to subsistence

cial fishermen to take sufficient
quantities of samon for subsis
tence.
A permit will be required for
all subsistence fishermen fishing
in the Tanana drainage above the
mouth of the Wood River and in
the Pilgrim River drainage near
Nome on the Seward Peninsula.
Permits are free and may be ob
tained from the local Department
of Fish and Game office prior to
fishing.
Of every 100 people now 25
years old, only 64 will still be
alive at 65, five will still be on
the job, and only one will be
wealthy.
