UNSAFE AT ANY SPEED Ralph Nader
A fearless expose of the automobile industry's practices by an author who was so feared by these powerful companies that they attempted to discredit his disclosures.
Headlines in today's papers parallel the claims made in this exposure Of the automobile industry's practices. A chilling eye-opener, the book is in part responsible for the current federal drive for automobile safety standards. Read this and understand the nation's concern.

FARM VACATIONS: If you've got more time than money for a vacation, think about taking your family to a farm this sum* mer. It's relatively inexpensive. You won't need a fancy wardrobe: There are things for the whole fami^y-^a zoo of animals for the kids, swimming, fishing, boating, and hiking. PICK THE PLENTIFUL^. Swing with the supply and demand pendulum during May and save. According to the U. S. Department of Agriculture, there will be lots of raisins, honey,, grape juice and scallops available.

The U. S. Department of Agriculture says that in a one-pound box of Kentucky bluegrass you'll get 2,177,250 tinv seeds (each a potential blade of grass).

We read in the' newspapers all about the demonstrations going on about town. The spirit of old still lives in the hearts of Americans today. Someone recently said that the early American rebels were the architects of the freedom our society enjoys today. These rebels had goalsand could foresee a great world before them. We still have rebels and they stand and fight and demonstrate for the same principles. Those that do not back or agree with Mr. Rudolph Gonzales need only remember the builders of this great country. Mr. Gonzales is not looking for fame but his name will go down in history as a man dedicated to his people.
The Recorder does not necessarily agree or disagree with the preceding common* by Mrs. Chavez. However, we do agree with our readers* rights to express their opinions on current issues. We are printing this, hoping it will stimulate further discussion and expression of opinions and ideas by our readers. We would welcome letters to the editor and would print those which are suitable and for which we have space. '
