These figures have a greater significance for the estimated 18,000 people in Jefferson County than they have, almost without exception, for any other people in the United States. We not certain whether or not ours is the only County in the United States with two racetracks; but we do know this is the only place in the county where two racetracks adjoin, back to back, if you please. Legalized beting last year in West Virginia placed more than .seven million dollars in the State treasury. It also cre- ated l)roblems of a local nature in the counties where it was done. By reason of its attraction, it brought on traffic prob- lems, road problems, and crime problems. All of this leads us to make again an obse wation we have repeated on previous occasions: that road improvement, traffic control, and means of combating crime in Jefferson County are inadequate to the necessities of the times.

It is a privilege to express our heartfelt thanks on 'behalf of needy children and mothers in all parts of the world As staunch and efficient UNICEF supporters, all of you and those whose concern you have stimu- lated are most certainly entitled to feel that you have a personal share in UNICEF's Nobel Peace Prize.

West Virginia Dear Mr. Brown: "She of Jell week Read The Spidt4dvocate Go To Church Sunday way to make decisions; but if this is so, as I am reasonably sure it is, it behooves each of us to be a whole lot more careful than we have hitherto been in arriving at our own opinions, all of which go to make up the national con- sensus. It is bad enough to be "brand conscious" about the nat- ionally advertised products we use in every day life, and in this field we sit docily by and let Madison Avenue techniques deter mine what we eat, what we drink, and what we wear. But when we let the Madison Avenue techni- que tell us what to think, when we permit the merit of an opin- ion to be weighed and determined not by our own testing but by someone else s, we are in trouble. Reasoning from the authority of books, from the opinions of others, is not knowledge. It is faith. And when it comes to pub- lic opinion I, for one, prefer not to be a blind little sheep, follow- ing the leader, with a second- hand cart full of second-hand opinions, and with none of my own fashioning to sell or display. If, by some magic mystery, I could have three wishes for 1966 they would be: That people would tffink; that people would think; that people would think! Here is the key to the truth that will ultimately set us free.
