It appears that everyone these days is being confronted with one crisis or another, creating frowns and scowls. Have you stopped to think how much a smile can do to help alleviate the problem and promote an ounce or two of happiness along the way? It's been said that it takes hundreds of muscles to frown but only a few to smile. Read the following text and see if you don't find yourself smiling: A smile costs nothing, but gives much. It enriches those who receive, without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it. A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in'business, and is the countersign of friendship. It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and it is nature's best antidote for trouble. Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as no one needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give. The above essay was contributed by Bright Newhouse. PRESIDENT NIXON continues to poke his finger into the economy when he shouldn't, and the hopes of things getting better continue to fade. It was announced Thursday by one of his aides, that Nixon is considering a 10 percent hike in income tax, with the money to be refunded to taxpayers eventually. The plan is considered a "forced savings plan," intended to cool down the economy. Now, with prices going up at an unbelievable rate on everything, can you imagine digging into your pocket and digging up another 10 percent to send to Washington? With prices rising much faster than wages, can you imagine another 107o in taxes? The Nixon aide said that the move wouldn't be a tax increase as such, but instead was a device to remove income temporarily from the economy in an effort to fight inflation. The money would be returned in 2 to 5 years, possible with interest. it looks like to me that it would be a drastic mistake to take money out of, circulation at a time when prices are rising so rapidly. But then l've never understood Nixon's economic programs anyway. beef, and set no limits on the price of cattle or the doesn't make much sense to freeze the price of am set no limits on the price of producing the item. Nixon has put the country in a heck of a mess with his d old freezes. He froze food prices, and now we have a food. He froze beef prices, and now we have a scarcity He froze gasoline prices, and now we have a terrible gasoline. We've said it again, and we'll say it again. The supply and demand will always take care of the when you go to messing around with this theory, you're ! for trouble. Nixon has opened Pandora's Box with his  controls, and nobody knows where the trouble will end. Controls of this kind weren't meant for a free country. might be alright for communist countries or not for a free America. These massive controls violate America stands for. It's gonna get worse before it gets better, just wait THE GOVERNMENT HAS put some crippling gasoline stations, and the move has closed many a larger cities and may threaten some stations locally. The Phase 4 gasoline program allows a station 7-cent profit over what the gasoline cost him on Jan. 10 0 year. Wholesale prices went up 1 cent in June, so this basic profit to 6 cents a gallon. Now, 6 cents profit per gallon looks OK at first glance, must consider that the station's overhead -- rent, taxes, etc. -- must come out of that 6 cents. When you up, there isn't much, if any, left for the operator. Now ask yourself: Why is a dealer going to keep his open if the government doesn't allow him to make a You're right. He probably won't. Add this problem to the problem of the gasoline you'll find trouble ahead for the gasoline industry. And for you when you drive through a town with no gasoline open. I could go on all day about the stupid Nixon controls. probably wouldn't do any good. I voted for Nixon and I still support him -- I just him. THE DONLEY COUNTY Hospital District board met in regular session Tuesday night, paid a few bills, into executive session and asked the press and the leave. We know of several items which had to be during that meeting which could not possibly have reason for closing the meeting. If these topics personnel or lawsuits were discussed, then that would meeting an illegal meeting, with the board members fines. It really doesn't surprise me any, since the board is such actions. But we really see no reason for the board hide their actions from the public. After all, the public the bill for the hospital, so they certainly deserve to going on.
