"ALL THAT IS NEEDED TO REMEDY THE sifr&se T ° °° justice SOS Call Last Sunday, thousands of residents of Maricopa County responded to the appeal of the Maricopa County Medical Society. They attended one of the 60 clinics and received the first dose of the Sabin oral polio vaccine. This vaccine is tasteless , odorless and painless. It will give immunization for a lifetime , plus it will keep a person from becoming a carrier of the polio virus. Persons who have taken Salk injections are urged to take the Sabin type , also. It is considered superior to the Salk serum and it is easier to take. No booster shots are necessary. Members of the county medical society and all volunteers did a magnificent job last Sunday. Let us triple the number this Sunday. Answer the SOS call. If you were busy or reluctant to go last week , remember Sunday, Jan. 21. Polio can be prevented if you will heed the SOS call. Dogs Need Leashes Each month many persons are bitten by loose dogs in Maricopa County. Many per sons have had to undergo painful rabies shots during the past year. Many school children are attacked on their routes to schools and homes. Mailmen, the proverbial enemies of the dogs have received their share of bites. County humane officers are called con stantly to corral wandering dogs . Citizens endure the escapades of loose dogs who up set trash cans, kill growing plants and bark and fight during sleeping hours. A dog leash law is greatly needed in this county. In fact a leash law is needed in the entire state. Dogs are not man*s best friends when they endanger the lives of all. - CLOTHES DRY CLEANED, SPOTTED _ READY FOR YOU TO PRESS , 8 lbs. ~s2 cash & carry ' $2.75 —delivered to you. Economy Os!

A new industry has been created in less than six months from widespread publicity on fallout protection in the event of nuclear warfare. Homebuilders present several types of shelters with their new homes. Small firms manufacture cheap "fallout detectors”. A water bottling company reaped a harvest from a small newspaper ad offering special pure water. Even the National Biscuit Com pany has received many orders for its "survival cracker”, which is probably the same cracker with a new name which they have been selling for the past decade. The Lily-Tulip Cup Corpora tion is packaging an emergency paper supply kit for four persons for a period of 14 days. Fallout shelter equipment is being »made to fit every pocket book. From the Radiation Sur vival Corporation in New York City, you may obtain a nifty fam ily radiation measurement kit for $24.95. It is advertised to “help protect your family from the ‘silent threat* with this easy to use portable, pocket size FRM Kit, unconditionally guaranteed for 2500 recharge.” It contains a ratemeter, a do simeter, a charger and one in struction manual. Another enterprising firm, Nask, Inc., is selling nuclear at tack survival kits for $47.50. This kit is advertised as an "all purpose, completely mobile sur vival kit, containing food, water, medical kit, and rough living tools.” The Pine Bush Machine Corp., of New York, offers a model A-l blower for fallout shelters at the "low price” of S3O post paid. It will enable fallout shel ter dwellers to take out stale air while drawing in fresh air. This machine is handmoved or motor driven. The nuclear war scare is prov ing to be more than a menace to the lives of our countrymen. It is becoming a boon to companies who wish to make a quick dollar, regardless of the manner. There is little rhyme or reason to any fallout shelter program which isn’t evolved from the state civil defense leaders. Any such program should be fully outlined before such companies are given the right to bilk hundreds of Americans through misleading advertising. Some attempts are being made to curtail such com panies but no real effort is being made to educate the citizens who still feel the threat of the nuclear war. I have a sure-fire fallout shel ter proposal. All Americans who wish to save themselves from the terrible effects of nuclear fallout should send telegrams and write to their national and state civil defense committees. They should stop buying any more shelters and shelter equipment until they are certain what will give them adequate protection. Ed and I have decided to wait this situation out. Perhaps, the best advice comes from the words of John Milton: "They also serve who only stand and wait.” Snowden Barber Shop 2104 E. BROADWAY 276-8798 REMEMBER THE MARCH OF DIMES Vieiirs,Previews & Reviews EDWARD BANKS UNITED FUND FOR INTEGRATION A recent article in The New York Times reported an interesting view on the troubles confronting integration groups in the South. Tlfe article entitled "Rivalries Beset Integration Campaigns”, should be read by every person regardless of race or creed or organizational leaning. Mr. Claude Sitton, writer, analyzes those differences which have arisen in the opposing camps of different movements, including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the Congress of Racial Equality, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee. Possibly the only group to receive national and international recog nition on a grand scale other than the NAACP, has been the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, headed by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Congress of Racial Equality has played a prominent part in leading anti-violent crusades throughout the South, too. CORE was formed by Negro and white students at the University of Chicago in 1942, with supervision from New York advisers. The NAACP precedes all groups since it was formed 1909 with a board of white directors, who elected William Dußois as publicity director. The Southern Christian Leadership Conference grew from the Alabama bus boycotts headed by Dr. King during the years from 1955-56. The Student Non-Violent group emerged from a leadership confer ence meeting at Raleigh, North Carolina in 1960. Participants were recruited from student sit-in demonstrators. All of the differeces of these four groups are merged, however, toward one national aim—the ending of racial segregation in any form as soon as possible. They disagree mainly in the manner and method used to achieve a common goal. Protests and demonstrations often incur high legal costs and sym pathetic contributors might be saved from the duplication of financial drives through the combining efforts of these four separate groups. Bail bonds, publicity booklets, and legal fees dwindle the coffers of all interested groups. It would be a savings of money, effort and time if these four could reach some kind of agreement and form a type of United Fund for Integration. LOOKING AT THE RECORD LOUIS LAUTIER—ASST, TO HEAD OF THE NATIONAL REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE John M, Bailey, Democratic National Chairman and other Dem ocratic leaders feigned indignation because it appears that Repub licans stand to gain from the Congressional Redistricting Plan adopted by the New York Legislature. But they were totally blind to the plans of the Democratic-con trolled States of California, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey and Texas. In California alone. Democrats figure to pick up six to eight seats. Under the New York Plan, districts are as nearly equal in population as can be. The disparity is not more than 15 per cent, a margin approved by the American Academy of Political Science. There are bigger disparities in districts set up by Democratic legislatures. Such districts range in population from 198,000 to 663,000 in Arizona; 301,000 to 501,000 in California; 223,000 to 629,000 in Maryland; and 237,000 to 660,000 in Florida. But as bad as these disparities are, they are not as bad as the disparities in the votes cast to elect Democratic Congressmen in rotten-borough districts as compared to the votes necessary to elect Republican Congressmen in districts where citizens are not denied the right to register and vote because of race or required to pay a poll-tax as a condition for voting. For example, the Fifth Alabama District has a population of 310,683. Representative Albert Rains represents this district. He was re-elected to Congress in 1960, a Presidential election year, by 48,772 votes, the total vote cast. In contrast, the Fourth Ohio District has a population of 305,808. Its Congressman is William M, McCulloch, Republican, the ranking minority member of the House Judiciary Committee, who led the fight in the House for enactment of both the 1957 and 1960 Civil Rights Acts. In 1960, 152,480 votes were cast in the Congressional election. Mr. McCulloch received 99,683 votes, (twice the number Mr. Rains received) to 52,797 for his opponent. m* m■ m ■ IsBR I in IT mt&M Ikm SERVED 8 POSTAL HEADS—James H.
