T. FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR Pierre Salinger: A Poor Choice Pierre Salnger, presidl press secre- tary to John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. John- son, lms resigned his position and now aspires o the United States Senate, often called the workl's greatest deliberative body. His qnaRficatim.s, to borrow a phrase from George Cabot Lodge, "are nebulous, to say the least." Lodge made the remark during his 1962 campaign fer the Senate against Teddy Kennedy, the late president's youngest broth- er. Teddy, of course, is he Kennedy that did such a bang-up job of managing his brother's 1960 presidential campaign in this part of the country that `the late president failed ,to win a singte western state. Within two years, after he at least managed to become old enough to run for the Senate, Teddy was elected in a breeze by Kennedy crazy Massa- chusetts. It's hard to imagine that in a system of govermnent which provides only 100 sen- ators to form the strong arm of our legis- htive branch, young Kermedy should be in- cluded in the group. The same goes for Sal. ger, who obviously is trying to ride into the California sena- torial election on Kennedy's shirt tails. Sal- idger .has already denied he is doing this-- before being accused. Heay wears the con- scierce of rahe guitty. It's ,a mistake to say, "wetl, Massachuses elected Teddy Kennedy and they're welcome to him," or "Galifocni.a can have Salinger if they wat hi,n, i.t isn't my concern where I live." Unqu,a.lified men such as Teddy Ken- nedy and Pierre Salinger are the direct con- cern of every &mercan, Wherever he lives. If we're to have government by represen- `ration we should have the best 100 Senators available in the land . . . Republicans or Democrats. The two party system, with its check and balance system, is sll the best form of government anyone ,has come up with yet. The system could be in grave danger, lmwever, ff too many Teddy Kennedys and Pierre Salingers become entrenched where they don't belong. These men should concen- trate ,their political 'ambitions at their own state levels and leave ,the matter of legis- lating the federal gavermnnt to more qual- ified mere, vCho have earned their senate seats through merit . . . not through associaton or rehtion. 00@wt 40 Years Ago 1924 Delegates to the county eon- von`tion were elected at a Re- pub'an caucus as foH'ows: precinct 1, H, N.

Eter comes early this year, and sping work  be upon us before we know it. By now, plans should be well formulated on vh will be seeded on the land. Soil tests for fe:rtiers  soon be in full swing. From the a, naiysis, proper kinds and amounts of fertilizers wi, l be ordered and preparations for Cheer appliactin will begin. The seeds wl be bought and the seemingly endless task of weed cantrol wi'll get under way. Seedbed prepaion is a very important item to co,n- sider for grass seedings; either for hay and pasture or for lawrm. To do a god job of it, we must give the weeds a good j,olt from the beginning. They use the moisture needed for the new seedlings. The best mehod is to start early wi1?n the weedin operation and re- ,.peat again in two weeks tD be sure to ,get most of them out. The seedbed will have to be !irmly packed prior to seed- g. This will draw the nmis- tu to the surface where the .small seeds re placed. The seeds shouM be put not more than to % hches deep. I.t is ,be to use certi. fled seed, the arootmt arnd car. ieties depend on the use and he type of soil and aail- able e. Seeding recom. .mend,tions can be obtaine( from local Sl Conseion Service offices. Rice lmlls may be used to control `the flow arm give an even dist,'button. The ]rolls are ike little cups that h,0ad the mall seeds, and aliow them to be ,seeded with a grain drill. Seeding shouM be the last operatin. Too many times, if we pack after the seeding, we get a rain or show- err hat will 'form a crust above the seed that will not alow the little plant to emerge. Con- sequently, we will not get the good st'and we hoped to get. The main .points  for a good l stand ave 'o Work out the weeds, pack the soil fhnnly, plan the seeds shallow, use certified seed ,and inoculated legumes, and apy needed fer- titizers as shown by a soil test.

Despie the excitemen,t, the judge has to .be impartial and open-minded as to issues, ei- dence, parties, witnesses and lawyers. To fail in ,this may cause a case to be tried again or reversed on appeal. This makes a judge's job a hard one. He must first keep order so that the facts go to the jury in a way to .lead to sotmd, tmrprejudieed verdicts. The judge must also instruct t:he jury on the hw, a,nl decide what testimony goes trite evi- dence. Mearrtime lawyers on both sides are duty bound to wrk w,th skill and vigor to protect their clients and to advance their catme. In  tense t- mosphere some people break oxr the Rne and do s which may be termed "foul play" or show disrestm for the court. When ithis happens, the judge ha "iheven" power-- power lmt grows out of his hard job--- crack doa. and pu ,rh vi, olars for "contempt he court:7 Within wide limits can levy fines and give jail sen,tences on the spot when the offense takes place before him.

Judges may fine or give jail sea, rices to protect the due administration of justice, a juror or a lawyer for being tardy, for i'mpugning the judge's honesty, for a witness who refuses to testify, for im- proper attempts to influence' the jury or the court, for de- ceivi, ng or .taking advantae of the court, making personal at- tacks .on the character and mo- tives of the other side or iLs lawyer, for appealing to prejudices, .and far referring to facs in court not admiss- able in evidence.
