10 8PIRITOF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, JUNE 211,1978 Superintendent Fmier Surpdse Baton Weilder Superintendent of Jefferson County Schools Raymond Frazier (weilding the baton above) was surprise guest conductor at the final concertof the Jefferson High Symphonic Band. His direction of the opening number delighted both students and guests. It was not a new experience for Frazier. He was band director at Harpers Ferry Junior High School for several years and has lost none of his finesse. Col. Joseph Groves Expresses Concern On Nation's Defense Colonel Joseph R. Groves (Retired) of Charles Town, was the speaker for the most recent meeting of Bee Line Chapter, NSDAR, held at the home of Mrs. William Wilson. Col. Groves, introduced by Mrs. Woolford Murphy, ex- pressed his concern over the state of the nation's national defense. Said Col. Groves: "Most of you will agree that our prime antagonist and enemy is the other super power, the Soviet Union. I believe it absolutely vital for our safety to maintain our nuclear umbrella in suf- ficient strength to deter aggression by the Soviets. "I am concerned that the United States will continue to make concessions in the Strategic Arms Limitations Talks since the Soviets refuse to compromise. Representative Melvin Price has expressed deep concern in a letter to President Carter that American security could he further damaged in the arms negotiations and that there should be closer cooperation between the Arms Control negotiating team from the State Department and the military defense experts." Continued Col. Groves: "Recent decisions such as the cancellation of the B-I bomber; the short range attack missile or SRAM; the termination of production of the Minute Man Free Intercontinental Ballistic Missile; the reduction in development of an advanced mobilebase which military experts tell us is needed by the early 1980's; new launching silos for ICBM's which will be in- vulnerable to Soviet attacks; the need for new manned bombers replacing aging B-52's; all these could seriously impair the strategic posture of the United States." COl. Groves went on to point out that the United States' in- ternal security has been severely damaged by attacks upon intelligence gathering and securitY agencies this past year. He noted the House Internal Security Committee; the Sub- versive Activities Control Board and the Internal Security Commission of the Justice Department have all been eliminated. He said that terrorist and revolutionary problems in the U.S. average 2,000 each year. Communist block intelligence agencies in the U.S. Have more than quadrupled in the last decade and a half, and Com- munist Block delegations have tripled in size. Accoi'ding to Col. Groves, the FBI estimates there are about 15,000 terrorists in the U.S., organized into twenty-one different groups such as the Weatherman, the Manson Group and the Symbinnese Liberation Army. Col. Groves called for the reconstitution of internal security groups; and the mass expulsion of all known com- munist intelligence personnel as suggested by a recent John Peoples 8-Page Circular In This Issue Due to Circumstances Beyond our Control the followin Items ore Not Available at Peoples No.100 RIGHTS RESERVED TO LIMIT QUANTITIES I I II II I Plastic Snack Basket.... z for $1 .00 Reynolds Wrap .

TWO WHEEL DRIVE AND FOUR WHEEL The 1310 and 1310 DT are the newest and largest models in the Long line-up of agricultural tractors. The modern, high torque six cylinder diesel engine produces an abundance of power to pull big equip- ment at fast speeds. Beneath the crisp, modern exterior is a rugged, heavy duty chassis, built for good performance and durability. Many standard features make these new tractors an outstanding buy: an eight speed gear box with a planetary torque amplifier provides sixteen forward and eight reverse speeds and greatly increases pull- ing power. A wide rear axle with sliding hubs makes track adjustment easy and allows the addition of dual wheels on two wheel drive model. A versatile hydraulic system includes position control, depth control and mixed control that allows the desired mixture of position and depth control to maintain efficient and economical performance in mo,t soils or terrains. A deluxe suspension seat absorbs shocks SOLD AND SERVICED BY: under most working conditions, an, heated-air conditioned cab adds to The 1310 DT offers the added tractor flotation and pulling power of four wheel drive. These trac- tors can operate in wet soil conditions where two wheel drive models will bog down. And reduced wheel slippage adds to operational economy by using less fuel with less tire wear. Both models are econom- ically priced and there's a list of options for added convemence and effi-, ciency.
