FROST .................................. PUBLISHER JACK PIERCE .................................... EDITOR Every Vole Counts The "Get Out the Vote" campaigns are be- grg as November appreaches. One at- tractive leaflet is entitled "Just One Vote'" and  aimed squarely t the eligible voters who say array from the polls. And they amount to a dgrace,fully large number. In 1960, a presidenal election year, more than a thud of the voters failed to exercise their right of franchise--a right which is at the very heart of representative government and a free sodety. In the off-year elections of 1962 the showing was worse still, with more than half of the eligible voters staying away from the polls. How important is one vote? It can ctually determine the result. In recent elections, a mayor, a city treasurer, a councilman and a state legislator won office by just that mar- gin. And, moving up the ladder, the late Pres- ident Kennedy's plura'ty in 1960 vas less than ,one vote per precinct. His margin of vic- tory was less than 120,000 votes out of al- most 69 million cast. So much for facts and figures. Another point needs stressing. The cour, try doesn't need "just voters". It needs "informed vot- ers"--men and women who study the issues and the positions of the candidates, all the way from town and country to Cap,itol Hill and the White House and know exactly what they are voting for. So--vote, and vote intelligently for the people and the principles you believe in.

First you should report the that to the police as soon as you can, giving them the besl description you can of the i thief, if you saw him. If your purse contained your personal printed checkbook, notify your bank immediately. Perhaps the bank can help catch the thief by giving notice that a person trying to cash your checks may be using stolen check forms. Watch Credit Cards If you have credR cards in the stolen purse, nctify the compames whi(h issued the credit cards immediately after the theft, by telephone or by telegram. Many credit cards are equivalent to conlxacts which require you to pay for anything charged on the edit card, even by a .thief, uxtil you notify the company of e loss of the card. For your own pro- tection, read the contract pro- visions on your credit cards now so you can give the corn. puny such notice as the con- tract requires, ff the credit is stolen. Such cards, in the hands of a thief, can cost you much mre than the money in the stolen purse. Thieves Move Rapidly Professional thieves in some cities act rapidly to obtain maximum cash and credit on stolen credit and identification cards. You should act fast to see that you .axe not frther vietined by the use of your stolen identificalion and credit cards. As soon as checks forged on your account come throug and are rejected by the bank notify the people who cashed the checks that they were on stolen cheek forms, so they will not cash any more cheeks. Give the police the name of ,nyone who cashed a forged check, so the police can try to get informtian about the forger, who may be the per- son who snatched the purse, or one of hs accomtflices.

Con- smalI part of their ultimate sequenfly, root absorbing sur- faces die or fail to form norm- ally. Water and nutrient up- take are also jeopardized. Twice as Heavy "The extent of soil packing is specified by the denty," says Blake. "A cubic foot of freshly plowed, dry soil weighs about the same .as a cubic foot of water, or 62.3 pounds. By midseason it common(ly weighs 1.3 to 1.4 times as much as an equal volume of water. Inten- sively tilled loam so may end up the groing season with a density of 1.6. Subsoil glacial dposits may pack so firmly that they are twice as heavy as! the same volume of water. This is about the same density as sandstone,,' he said. MaChines and tlage 'are the major cause af soil cm'npactlon on croplamt. S o m e imple- ments, saeh ,as a disc, are es- sertaily pecking ianplenmnts except in the surface 2 or 3 inches. But any weight on the soil compresses it. A second trip with the same imllement only reinforces compaction. Tractors used to pull tillage equipment p u t force on the soil. Cover Crops Used Blake indicated a number of practices promote cxmstrettve forces and minimize destruc- tive forces acting an soil struc- ture. These irmlude using cover crops dur,g  sea- sons, or mulches where prac- tical, to protect fihe soil sur- faces. Returng cr residues to the soil enhatces synthesis of desirable soil streets. Recent trends Coward mini- mum :tillage have greatly re- duced packing Woblems. If farmers understand and apply the fundamena of sail struc. t.u[e maintenance, and employ Uuage judidously and only ,hen needed, they tan keep compaction problems within bounds. "The old .rules a still val- id," concluded Blake. Protect the soil in off season with a cover crop, save arid ircortmr- ate residues and oher organic mterials. Above al, dont till soil when it is too wet. LARGE DOG BREEDS GAINING POPULARITY Large dogs are gaining in popularity. Take the ease of the German Shepherd. Accord- ing to the most recent Amer- ican Ken,nel Club breed regis- tration figures, he's now in sec- ond place, a rating that's been heid for some years by the compact beagle who's now moved down to the third spot There are a number of rea- sorts for the switch. First is the large exodus to the suburbs where there's enou,gh wide open space to accomodate a larger size dog. But space cer- tainly doesn't account for the influx ,of large fellows into cities. Take New York for ex- ample. The sight ,of a St. Ber- nard, Great Dane, Afghan hound or one of the large hunting breeds such 'as setters, pointers or coon hounds: walk- ing along the street, no longer draws startled glances. Not only do these dogs seem per- fectly happy ,and healthy but they're providing their owners with a pleasant way of partici- pating in the nation's physical fitness program. Another reason for the in- crease i'n the large dog popula- tion is that ,he makes a more impressive watchdog than his smaller confreres, although he's not necessarily a greater leat to a burglar who gener- ally hears a dog before .he sees it.

Just last week it was $310.7 billio and two weeks ,ago it .stood at $308.7 bilfi'on. The debt goes higher and ,higher as the current phil- osophy of "borrow ,and spend" supplements the tottering phil- osophy of "tax and spend." With economic conditions 'as they are today, I strongly be- lieve a responsible fiscal pohcy demands a "pay ,as you go" policy. This could be achieved by higher taxes, but far more appropriately, I feel, by a re- duction in federal spending. A true determination on the part of the Johnson Administration to promote "economy" could bring abo]zt a bal'amd ld t. he Administration exp@t: o collect in taxes next year, $91.5 biHfon, which is an aver- age of $1,946 for every family in the United States. Democrats Propose Raise The Democratic majority of the committee on ways and means recommended legis- tion (H.R. 11375) to raise the puMic debt limit from $315 billion to $324 billion. In op- posirg the enactment of this legislation the Republican mi- nority of the committee point- ed out in its report that such a fimit will represent an in- crease of $3'1 billion over the size .of the debt ($293 biIlion) when this Administratfon took office. The Republicans asked for defeat of the bill "in order that the Admintratio will be compelled to absorb at least a part of the revenue loss re- sulting from the Revenue Act of 1964 through a reduction in Federal expenditures." New High Reached [ They showed further that I "the level of Federal spending[ by the Johnson Administration I auring the months of Mav and I June 1964 wi reach the'high-] est point in our ihi, an an-[ rm,al rate of $105 billion)' Dur- ing this morth of June Mr. Johnson will Sl6end $1.1 billion more thandid Mr. Kennedy dun,g the :me month a year ao. The report emphasized that while the Ad,ministration has adopted a "ceiling" of about 2.5 million Federal employees for this year, this so-called ceiYmg provides for 140,000 more empmyees than there were whe President Eisen- hower left ofice. The Republicans on the com- mittee concluded by saying.
