LOCAL.MAN TO LEAD KIWANIS INTERNATIONAL The local chapter of Kiwanis International has long been active in this community in civic affail . It has also provided leadership in Kiwanian affairs on the state level, as is attested to by the fact that from the local club in the past have come leaders of Kiwanis in West Virginia state Kiwanis affairs. Word reaches us this week that the most singular honor of all, th9 presidency of Kiwanis International throughout the world, will shortly come to rest on one of the local club mem- bers, Dr. James M. Moler, of Charles Town, We are most happy to extend congTatulations to Dr. Moler and to the local club for this accomplishment. Kiwanis International has a total membership throughout the world of approximately 275,000 men. There are more than 54,000 individual clubs. Most of them are in the United States, but its membership also spreads to Latin America and Canada, Western Europe and the Far East. Dr. Moler will not actively assume his new duties until a year hence, in July of 1967. But commencing then he will literally be an ambassador from Jefferson County to the far flung cornerg of the world. We wish him well. We feel con- fident he will take every advantage of the tremendous op- portunity accorded him to tell the many with whom he will come in contact that Jeffei'son Countians are not unlike other men of good will in their yearning and desire for the ultimate brotherhood of man. Dr. Moler is the recipient of a gTeat honor. He is also too, the bearer of a great responsibility. We feel confident he will carry boLh to the credit of the local Kiwanis Club and to the credit of Jefferson County and West Virginia as well. 51 Attended Vacation Church School At Bolivar Methodist Church certificates were pre- sented at the closing program of a very successful Vacation Chu- rch School at Bolivar last Sunday night.

Morrow S .... i i i nluu INTERVIEW While NBC and CBS were inter viewing national and internat- ional leaders last week about the recent stepped-up bombing in Vietnam I held a Httle interview of my own. My chat was with a fisherman who prefers to remain anonymous. "What do you think of the President's decision to bomb the oil refineries at the edge of Haiphong and Hanoi?" I asked. "I'm all for it," says he. "But isn't there a great risk it might prompt the Chinese and the Russians to enter the War?" I went on. "Naw," he snorted. "They ain't comm in. Least ways, not on the same side. Besides, its about time those fellers in Peking either put up or shut up. Every- bodys says, Don't provoke China." All I got to say is provoke the hell out of 'era. We're about as strong now as we're gonna get, and I'm all for having a show- dower right now instead of waitin around until it suits them. We can knock 'em out now and if the truth of the matter be known the Russkies would be tickled pink if we did. Whether them fellers in Peking come "in or stay out, it don't matter to me. If they come in we can take off our wraps and you've got to take the risks. Not only that. you've got to weigh where you'll be if the thing you're risking happens. We don't want a war with China and If we don't risk it now we won't get it now. But if we don't risk it now, sure as shootin, we're gonna get it later. If we do risk it now there's a ci~ance we might not get it all, either now or later." "But what about our allies f, rom the last War, the British, tim French, the Russians, the Chinese Nationalists?" I asked. "I'm glad you brought that up. Look, mister, I could make an argument to the effect that the best way to get those fellers in Peking and Hanoi on our side would be to whip hell out of 'em. Twenty years ago our worst ene- mies were the Germans, the Nips, and them Italian fellers. Today, they're our best friends. I know, I know. It ain't that simple. But you got to admit ,them fellers we had as friend,s twenty years ago weren't any great shakes at shaping the world or they'd never have gotten to the point where we had to bail them out. The trouble with the U. S. is that it don't want to throw its weight around. History has made it the biggest power in the world, but it wants to be a NICE big power. get the thing over with. If they When you've got power you've got responsibility. And you can't always be both nice and respon- sible at the same time. You can't run a foreign policy like you run a graden club, by letting the "ayes" have it. You got to make up your mind where you're going and then keep moving, even when the other fellers say you oughta quit. You can't back down be. cause there's a risk of bigger trouble. That only gets you bigger trouble later on. As far as I'm con eerned the best thing we can tell them fellers in Peking is to come on in if they're of a mind to; but stay out we're in a better position to tell them to stay out from now on. As far as I'm concerned, I hope the Chinese do come in. A couple of well placed bombs right now could save a couple million lives later. Russia doesn't want a World War. She's gettm fatter and sassier every day, and no body wants a war when they got a lot to lose." "Do I understand you to be saying," I continued, "that risk- ing a war with China is not a valid reason for opposing escala- tion in Vietnam?". "Exactly. Look, mister, we make it clear that if they do the don't want no war, and I don't Chinese border ain't gonna be too believe in going around and look- clearly visible to us, especially in for one, especially in China. from the air, and especially if But you can't have a foreign their troops makes it hard for us policy that doesn't have risks, to see where Vietnam ends and and if you know you're right[China begins." ---THE--- I In Charles Town, I anson, Jefferson County And Surrounding Areas: Regularly -- At The Following Places ooO IN CHARLES TOWN CHARLES TOWN COLONIAL NEWS-STAND MOFFETT'S PHARMACY PAUL'S SUPER MARKET MILLER'S MEAT MARKET WHITE'S SUPER MARKET PEOPLES DRUG STORE ACME MARKET CONKLYN'S STORE MARKET MANOR S.
