The Crook county commission- ers end several county officers spent until midnight Monday wrestling with the 1969-1970 bud- get. Shown around the table are (I to r).-- Mrs. Francis Hejde, as. istant county clerk; Rose Zella The Sundance Times has a cir. culation of about 1600. If you figure four readers per copy, this means that some 6,400 people read the paper. Two have asked me why this column didn't ep. pear in last week's edition. This probably means that 10 or 12 people went this question an- swore. So, I'll comply. But first, I must explain that I am all for freedom of the press. No politlcien --- city, county, fed- eral, etc,--is going to tell me whet I can print; nor is any busi- ,rmssman or any friend. How- ever, these rules co~einly don't apply to my wife. And she reads, edits, end upon ocesion cen- sors this column. After reading it, she usually has some positive end negative things to say. Last week, she read it, yawned end said, "I'm going to bed." My ira- pression was that the column must h~ve been about the crum. mlest ever written, so I left it out of the paper. It's about time we quit this country anyway. Our five-year old daughter insists that she sees iackalopes along Highway 14 ~nd our cocker spaniel h~s hay fever. Lest week, we took the Episco- pal minister of Ames, Iowa to Beulah . courtesy of Swede Nuss- beum. He (the minister) thor- oughly enjoyed hlmelf, but when it came time to sit down to eat dinner and it looked es if he was going to say "Grace." some- one in the party warned him, "The ceiling may fall In." I don't know whether he lacks faith or not, hut he replied, "Please pess the relish plate." He probably remembered the night he called me in Ames end asked if I'd teach Sunday school. The next day, the church chim- ney was struck by lightning. An item in last week's Moor. croft paper: "The swimming pool here has been getting 'good play' in recent weeks. At times, the water is Ilterelly "churning' with swimmers end beginners, &nd the attendants are kept busy. In feet, the emou,nt of youngsters enjoying almost daily swims is greater then had been expected." Dent sit on your heads. Pledge a few bucks to the Sundance swim pool. If the venture doesn't succeed, you'll get your money beck. e The best way to quit smoking cigarettes Is to take up Russian peanuts (sunflower seeds). Eating them is much like smoking. It demands considerable nervous energy - which is condition most smokers suffer from. It's messy. It's addictive. It offends other people. Whereas cigarette smoke bothers some, the constant cracking of the shells is equally offensive. Also, it satisfies the oral stimulation that psycholo- gists say is important to smokers. But, eating the seeds is not harm- ful to your respiratory, circula. tory or digestive systems un|ess you eat the hulls like my kids do. And no form of c~ncer hes Proctor, assessor; Marion Cure, clerk of courts; Karen Glover, treasurer; Cecil Hughes, coun- ty attorney; Leslie Hauber, com- missioner; Bob Wenende, com- missioner.

John Moline --- bless him--had the dubious opportunity of pull- ing us out of the first mudhole we drove into this summer. Before Paul Sharp spreads the word throughout the county, you should probably know that a res. ident Of the Sundence community recently had his car towed from seven miles east of Sundence to Belle Fourche to find out that it was out of gas. The astronauts are the first clean-shaven, nice-guy types to become national heroes since the Beetles took over the scene. Dick Macy wants to know why some credit wesn't given to the network camera crew which must have leaded first on the moon to set up television facilities for the Appollo 11 astronauts. I get the distinct feeling that the county commissioners wish that my stay in Sundance didn't coincide with their annual bud- get heering.
