SUEICRIPTION 11S3.50 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE. Thursday, Oetober 1, 1959 HELP THE FIREMEN Next ,week is National Fire Prevention Week, October 4- 10. We know of no better way to observe it than by reminding our readers that ~t would be a fitting occasion for them to remember their owr, fire companies. In Charles Town and Ransom i~t Harpers Ferry and Bolivar, and in 8hepherdstown there are well manned volunteer fire companies, ready on a moment's notice to rush to your assista~nce, vchebher it be to save your home from a devastating fire oz perform some slmlar errand of mercy. These men do no~ work for pay, and If you attempted ~o pay any one individual for what you regarded as some outstandir~g service the overwhelming chances are that he would accept it avid immediately turn it over to his fire company so that additional equipment could be purchased. So we ask each and every one of our readers, ~whereever .they may be, to observe National Fire Prevention Week by making a donation of some sort to some volun,eer fire company. Day in, day out, week in week out, these civic minded .citizens are contributing in time and effort for th~ good of us all. They should be entitled .to expect our help just as we expect them to rush to us when t~he occasion calls for it. MILLIONS BEING SPENT While the exact figures are not available to us, we venture opinto~ that in the past decade more than a million dollars has been spent on improving real estate rlg, ht on the main street of Charles Town, not to mention the millions that have been spent in and around the rest of the town in building and improvemetn. All of thin is but another indica.tion of the fact that we do, indeed, live in a progressive community, a comm~aniW that simply is not content to mark time, a community that looks ahead to .the future with confidence. It's .hard for local people who walk up and down the street vir- tually every day to realize, but ff a ,person who lived here ten or fifteen years ago were to return the chances are he wouldn't know the old town. Just .take Washington Street for example. In the place of the old Citizens Fire Hall there is a new modern building. Coming on up Che street extensive renovations and repairs have ,been made at What is now White's Market and Smith & Strider Funeral Home. Coming on up the street a new J. C. Penney ~Store has been constructed, and just across from it Town & Country Clothiers have opened a new clothing store. Further up Sllco has made extensive alterations at file corner of Charles and Washihgton Streets, and just across the Street Miller's Market now operates a 0ew grocezy store: .~'~ace lifting jobs have been performed on virtually all of the prop- erties in between. Further up the street east Smith Tire & Battery have remodeled, and Western Auto has rebuilt. The New Central Res- taurant thas a new front, as does .the Southern Restaurant. We could go on ,and Chard on, and :if we don't it is not because we intend to slight an:cone but simply ~because the limitations of space prohibit us from calling specific attention to everything that has been done. The long and the short of .it is that this is a progressive community, and we are 'proud of it. And we salute those citizens in our com- munity who look to the future with confidence.

"Holy Communion", as the service of The Lord's Supper is c~lled in Protestantism, is the time when Christians rethink, for ,new reai- izeution, on vchwt Jesus Christ did for .them in going to Calvary's Cross,.vChen they partake of ele- ments represen, ting Christ's bro- ken body and shed blood. ~t is also that particular moment w~en men re-give themselves in dedication to Jesus Christ.

But how many years more can this country have such polltieal triumphs when they ne- glect the meeds of the age we live in." (From Walter Lippmann's sy ndicated column as it appeared on September 17 ). Let it be noted that the a~aove words come, from one of the most if not the most, respected pundits and thinkers on ma~ters political of our time. I,.~ tnvo convise senen- ces Mr. IAppmann has done more than all the other commen ~tators and spokesmen, ~including ~he pres iden~t, with their millions upon mil lions of words to state the great )oliticai tragedy of our times. Mr. Eisenhower has for ,the most part had ~s way-and the country, in- deal the whole cause of the free world, has been che victim. ,Mr. Lipoma,a's words were writ- .ten against the background of Mr. Khrushchev's statement, reitera- ,ted on the shores of this very COLUn try, that ~he ui,timate triumph of oomn~umsm over "capitalism" is inevi,table. 2~he ~ov,iet Premier has boldly stated Cha~ commums~ is the dynamic and moviffg force of ~the future and that as i,t continues to move it is inevitable ,that it will overtake the way of life of the non commu~nist ns~tion& And we should ins,~ead of scoff.~ng and scorning. awaken to the grim fact thwt well i.t mASher be unless AmeI~ca wakes up to the equally grim trut'h that it si,moly cannot afford to rest (m ie~s past laurels. ~however glorious they may be as reci~ted in the per- haps to be unpu'bli~hed history books of the fu*ture; thwt America l~as lost sight of its own dream and iits own destiny and now hav- i,.ng attained gres~t heig,hts is un- able to see 4that t'he greevt heigh,ts of today are bt~t the 'mole hills of tomorrow. ~his is the great ,trag- edy of our times, perhaps the greatest tragedy in the history of our country.
