S people ask-- by Weidon Rives, Pastor First United Methodist Church THE 6UY THAT DESIGNED THKT SUPPLY ROCKET INVENTED THE POP-UP TOASTER. ,,e As welfare benefits increase, and those on welfare seemingly increase, it is a serious question when one is asked if the emergence of the welfare state proves that we are taking the principles of Christian charity and concern seriously. And I wish that i could give an affirmative answer to such an inquiry but in all honesty, 1 must admit that much of what is happening is contrary to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, as 1 see it. Yes, Jesus did say that we are to give to the poor, but God also said that "Thou shait eat the labor of thine hands." [Psalm 128:2.] To give according to needs is something more than giving food, clothing, shelter, and medical aid for which they have to do nothing but wait until we come around again with our hand-outs; we must go to the roots of their needs and provide for their greater needs whereby incentive is provided them that they become productive persons, contributing to the welfare of the community, state and nation and not leeches on society sucking away at the life blood of humanity. Democracy is fastly deteriorating in America today as socialism pushes us closer to becoming principally a welfare state. 1 am very much opposed to the current trends of the federal government which I believe to be totally socialistically oriented and which perpetuate an ever enlarging class of people who look to the government for existence - though that existence may be only a meager one. And, what we see happening today always happens in a socialistic development - those who are industrious and labor for their own food have a sizable portion of the product of their labors taken from them and given to those who neither work nor intend to work. What or who is the government--you and me. Thus, it is you and I who give to them, but it is the type of giving that does not bring to them any human dignity and personal incentive to be more than a leech on society, sucking away at society's life blood. Now, for some, I'm sure that this seems harsh and it is, but so is the policy of government which punishes the worker and rewards the lazy, indifferent leeches of society. And this is absolutely not according to the principles of Christian charity and concerns and is also contrary to the Gospel of Jesus as 1 understand it. Grace and peace.

Smith and hiswife LeVernewere honored with a giant, gala party Wednesday night by members of the Clarendon Country Club. The party was held at the Clarendon Country Club, a facility built largely with the help of Smith. About 150 people attended the event to express appreciation to Dr. Smith and his wife for the many things they have done for the community. Dr. and Mrs. Smith are planning to move to Amarillo, where he is currently practicing medicine for the Veterans Administration. He came here 17 years ago to open Adair Hospital, and has lived here ever since. Dr. Smith has played an extremely active part in civic work in Donley County during his 17 years here. There were many tears shed as Dr. Smith was given his farewell gift, a lifetime membership to the Clarendon Country Club. Ham, turkey and roast beef, along with other fine food, were served to guests at the reception, hosted by 35 couples.
