OUT ON A— LIMB by Bo McLeod I don’t understand it. The Yankees lose the World Ser ies to the Cardinals, and Nikita loses his job. Maybe it was a mere coincidence, but someone ought to look into it. Maybe Lyndon or Barry could make a campaign issue out of it. Since Khrushy’s downfall, our side is having to place station-to-station calls on the “hot line.” No telling who’s going to answer- And haven’t the “experts” been busy since “it” happen ed, telling us what they think it means, ought to mean, does not mean, etc. They’ve been so busy telling it, pore old Ni kita couldn’t get a word in edgewise, if he should want to tell how he saw it. Any way you look at it, it’s a rough year on incumbents. Some folks are fussing about what a dirty campaign it’s turned into being. I don’t know how dirty it is in other places, but it’s been fairly clean here so far. After all, I don’t expect Barry to praise Lyndon all over the place, for if he could praise him, he shouldn’t be opposing him. And why should Lyndon be reluctant to accuse Barry of a few things? Barry’s after his job, it’s natural to oppose such a motive. The trouble is, no matter what one side says against the other, it’s most likely true, at least to some extent. That’s the part that scares me. Mud slinging is bad, but it’s worse when it ain’t all mud. Former President Herbert Hoover is dead. The man who today is the abject of eulogy and praise for a long life of public service has gone the way of all but his mem ory will long endure, as people say he was or was not to be blamed for the ‘Hoover days’ of over 30 years ago. He was president at a cruc ial time in the nation’s his tory, and whether he was the reason or not, he was the in spiration for Hoover gravy’, the Hoover cart, and several other items of his time. One day history will be able to lay aside error and false accusations and decide how much the late president was at fault for the great depres sion that left many a scar in the memory of people. The time is not now. The Red Chinese have an ‘A’ bomb, or they had one un til they went to showing off and exploded the thing. It may not be true, but I heard that stamped under the bot tom of the thing was that old saving, “made in Japan. —O— For what it’s worth: WMGR held a “straw vote” for president this week, and Goldwater received 236 to 6 for Johnson in Seminole, 465 to 9 in Decatur, for a total of 701 for Goldwater and 15 for Johnson in the two counties. That’s pretty one-sided, so clip and hold this until Nov. 3, and let’s see how accurate it is. And also for what it’s worth (a dam low price at that), Al Rouge says watch this one: Terrell County 19, Seminole County 13. 4ft 1 ' '■s' Bmtalamuiillp Single Copies: Ten Cent* Official Organ of County of Seminole and City of Donalsonville, Georgia $3.00 a Year in Advance VOLUME XLVI MASTER FARM FAMILY—A Seminole County family was one of nine added to the state’s honor roll of Master Farm Families in a service at Rock Eagle 4-H club center recently. Their selection was announced by the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Georgia. Mr. and Mrs. Jno. I.

Newspics Indians play final region game when Terrell County comes Friday at 8:00 THE SEMINOLE Indians will play their final region IB west game of the season Friday night at 8:00, when the Ter rell County Green Wave comes to Seminole Stadium. The Indians end their home season on next Friday night, when Blakely’s Bobcats come here for a second game. In an earlier meeting, the ’Cats won from the Indians 19-0. After the Bobcats, the In dians go to Cuthbert for the final game of the year, play ing the Vikings for the second time, too. But the Indians will have plenty to think about this week- Terrell has won five and lost one this season. Last week, while the Indians were losing to Ashburn 26-7, the Green Wave was winning over Vienna 20-7. Blakely beat the Wave 7-0 for their only loss. Coach Denvard Snell of the Seminoles says he will open with about the same lineup as he used in Turner County. He says his squad is in pretty good shape, but Mike Bowen, Paul Brimlow and Harry INDIANS FALL TO REBELS 26-7 Four long touchdown runs by Ashburn’s Rebels handed the Seminole Indians another defeat last Friday night. The score was 26-7. Turner scored first when fullback Mike Williams went 56 yards on a run. Seminole came back with a 31-yard pass play from Bruce Baker to Mike Bowen for a TD, and a pass from Bowen to end John Pumphrey for the point after. The Rebels went back to score 14 points in the second period and 6 more in the third to win. The Indians threatened la er but could not score. DONALSONVILLE (GA.) NEWS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1964 Whitaker have not been prac ticing this week. They are out letting bruises heal, but they will be ready for Terrell.' Snell says the Indians will probably use the ‘l’ formation against Terrell. t- Last year, Dawson whipped Sminole 20-13.
