October 6, 1994 QUESTION: Would you on the violence in our at large, and the forces are propelling it? What do and should be done DR.

And I was at the pathetic system of American justice which makes crime so profitable and punishment so im- probable. But my indignation will change nothing, and the wave of violence and lawlessness will con- tinue unabated. We have become so desensitized to human suffering and exploitation that even the most horrible events are accepted as part of our regular evening "enter- tainment" on the tube. I think it's time that millions of decent, law abiding citizens rise up with one voice to oppose the industries that are profiting from violence. A valiant campaign of this nature was waged in 1977 by the National Parent Teacher Associa- tion, directing their efforts at television networks and companies that support the most damaging programs. Of course, this pressure from the PTA brought an an- guished cry of "foul play" from the greedy profiteers whose pockets were lined with blood-stained money. Nevertheless, Sears Roebuck, Union Oil and other large companies pledgedto spon- sor no more violent programs on television. This form of economic Programchairman Smith to intro- duce Kent Allison who is Head Coach of Clarendon Public Schools. Coach Allison told them that he had brought seven new coaches into the school system with him. He talked about his views on coaching which included a very dis- dplined program. Bob McCombs talked with the club members in regards to a proposed community building tobe built on the site of the present Lion Club Building if a sanction is the most powerful tool available to influence our free enterprise system, and we should use it. We have sat on our hands long enough! QUESTION: How common Is the desire for extramarital sexual encounters in men, even among those who would never be unfaithful to their wives? DR. DOBSON: Dr. Robert Whitehurst from the Department of Sodology at the University of Windsor, Ontario, was once asked this question: "Do most men at some point have extramarital desires?' His reply, published in the journal "Sexual Behavior," included these comments: "...All men from the first day of marriage onward think about this possibility, al- though these tendencies toward ex- tramarital sexual aOivity diminish in later middle age and beyond, they never entirely vanish or disap- pear in normal men." These strong statements leave little room for exceptions, but I'm inclined to agree with their con- dnsions. The lure of infidelity has incredible power to influence human behavior. Even men who are involved in a church and are committed to their wives must deal with the same sexual temptation. These questns and answers are excerpted from the book Dr. Dobson Answers Your Ouestions. Dr. James Dobson is a psychologist, aWhor and president of Focus on the Family, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of the home. Correspondence to Dr. Dob- son should be addressed to: Focus on the Family, P.O. Box 444, Colorado Springs, CO 80903. (c), 1982, 7/ndale House Publishers, Inc. grant is secured. A number of ques- tions were raised as to access to the proposed building by the Lions Club for its weekly meetings, bingo and other events and as to the source of funds for expenses such as utilities and insurance. After the discussion Lion Garland ap- pointed a committee consisting of Lion Henson, Smith and Estlack to look into the matter and report back to the dub. The meeting was adjourned. po.r.aL ONIED.VrATE$.

Then the large print books at Burton Memorial Library are waiting for you. What a choice you haveI Mystery, western, politi- cal, cooking, fiction favorites, non- fiction, and biographies...almost something for everyone. There are four Readers Digest volumes of condensed books, each containing three novels, plus,, 48 copies of Readers Digest magazines dated from 1982-1993. Even through the magazines are not current, they're certainly not lacking in interesting and informative articles...and so easy to read! I examine the library's large print section every two or three months to see what's new. Except for the Readers Digests, the books are part of Texas Panhandle Library System's loan program. They are rotated throughout the Panhandle area, thus, offering our community access to a larger variety of excellent reading. 9-29-94: Standby at foot-ball in Clarendon 9-30-94: Ernest Kent, from HPBH to Medi- Center in Clarendon, medical 9-30-94: Ruby White, :o Hall Co.

Suspenseful mysteries are available by authors, Ruth Rendell, John Wainwright, Barry Unsworth, and Eric Wright. Joseph Wam- baugh set his intriguing story against an international back- ground.

My friend, Hazel Shields, and I were discuss- ing a favorite writer, Elswyth Thane, author of the delightful Wil- liamsburg novels. If you've never read any of these, you're in for a pleasant surprised. If you read one, Page 7 you'll want to read them all. You and Hazel, both, might be pleased to know the The Light Heart, one of the Williamsburg series, is in the large print section. Ken Berven, director of Fel- lowship and Renewal Outreach, a nonprofit corporation dedicated to the principals of Christianity, has authored the book, I Love Being Married To A Grandma. Just at a glance, this book seems to offer humor, warmth, and compassion. It's one that I definitely plan to read before this group of books leaves the h'brary in a couple of months. Thanks again, Mary Linn Bills, for your concerned effort in the constant improvement of Bur- ton Memorial Library while you served as our City Librarian. We wish you the best for a happy retire- ment. More concerning the library's book rotation through Texas Panhandle Library System will be mentioned in my next column.
