Not e- nough children are b e ing immunized against conta - gious diseases. Without the proper protection, epidemics can sweep like fire through dry tinder. Ten years ago, 85 percent of children in the one-to-four-year age group received all t h r e e doses of the polio vaccine. By 1973, the figure had dropped to 60 percent. "Waiting until they're in school maybe too late for some," says Dr. John J. Wltte, director of the immunization division of the government's Center for Disease Control in Atlanta. "Remember when polio was known as infantile paralysis? ' The preschoolers are most vulnerable, so we really must reach them," The percentage of young children being immunized tor can prescribe special pills to prevent disease from developing. If disease is already present, pills can cure it. The care and protection of children is out of their hands. It depends on con-t cerned parents and health! professionals. Being sure the proper precautions are taken against contagious disease is essential.

So are rates for vaccination against whooping cough, another serious threat to youngsters. Tuberculosis tends to be forgotten in the crush. Anyone, including children, can have TB without knowing it andbe spreading it to others. Everyone should have a tuberculin skin test at least once.

The 1975 Hoover High Marching Band will make its debut on Sept. 5 at the Hoover-Akron South football gaime, and at this time will introduce to the public its new form and marching style. The band has adapted its style of marching to that used by the increasingly popular drum and bugle corps. With this new style come three new auxiliary units: a rifle unit, a flag line, and a national guard, which consists of two rifles, &n American flag, and a school flag. Another distinguishing feature this year, of which few high school bands in Stark County can boast, is the addition Of a drum major. Not only does he serve as the guiding force while the band is on the fie'id, but he also adds a 'bit of showiness to the band's performance. The majorette line remains the same as do the uniforms of the instrumental section. The use of corps style marching is meant to obtain greater precision in marching and thus produce better shows. The advent of the new style of marching also brings with it one of the band's busiest seasons ever. Not only will the band provide pre-game and half-time shows for all\ ten Hoover games, but it will also participate in three marching band festivals: Sept. 6 at Central Catholic, Sept. 20 at Tuslaw, and Sept. 27 at Tallmadge.

Sen.Johnson Reports From The Capital SORRY FOR ERROR I am very sorry that in last week's column we reported that Am. SJR No. 4 would be on the ballot. This bill deals with the ' constitutional question of whether the Governor and Lt. Governor will run as a team. Due to the fact that a House amendment was not accepted by the Senate, this constitutional amendment missed the Aug. 6 deadline for the November ballot and will probably be on next year's ballot. LOTTERY SHOULD BE CHANGED Due to recent debate and problems concerning the Ohio Lottery operation and personnel I have introduced legislation to deal with the problems. S. B. 374 would put the director of the Ohio Lottery and all employees under civil service. The latest information lists 309 employees now working for the lottery as unclassified personnel. My bill would require all employees to take competitive civil service examinations ln order . "to qualify for employment. The bill would alsoremove the power of the five commission members to hire and fire employees. S. B. 374 would also do the following: 1. It would provide for the Lottery Commission to establish a table of organization and pay schedules, and to make other lottery policy decisions. 2. Provide for the civil service examination of the lottery director with the Governor appointing a director from among the three applicants with the highest scores. 3. Provide for the lottery director todothehiringand firing subject to Civil Service Laws. 4. Provide that all meetings of the State Lottery Commission shallbe public and that the records of the Commission shall be open to the public at all reasonable times. • The lottery must not become a political football. This legislation I am proposing'would correct the situation and restore sound management practice to operations of the lottery. So far the lottery has handled more than $100 million of taxpayers' money. We must assure our citizens that operations ofthe lottery is being treated as a public trust. In the wake of the 1972 gasoline shortage, rising energy costs, last winter's heating fuel curtailments, and repeated dire predictions of even more severe energy cut-backs and unemployment this winter, the 111th Ohio General Assembly in its first session haltingly undertook measures to provide a modicum of energy security for Ohioans. Over 50 bills and resolutions directly related toen- ergy resouces have been introduced since January. The subject of the greatest number of bills is the Public Utility Commission of Ohio, the state agency re- sponslble for regulating, the rates, service and operations of Ohio's public utilities! Overall, serious consideration has thus far been given to only a handful of energy measures that deal with resource development, energy use and conservation, financingof utilities and other energy-related facilities, regulation of fuel pricing and distribution, and the organization of regulatory andco- ordinatlng agencies. The success or failure of Ohio's effort to cope with the energy crisis rests almost entirely with an Uth hour compromise measure (Am. Sub. H. B. 584) :.re- ating an Ohio Energy sources Development Agency (OERDA) designed to be a comprehensive energy development agency for the state. Purposes of the agency are to encourage and support new energy research, experimental and demonstration projects, and programs designed to facilitate more efficient energy utilization and conservation. OERDA assumes the authority and assets of the previous Ohio Development Center and Emergency Energy Commission. The agency's governing board consists of five public members appointed by the Governor, no more than three of whom can be ofthe same political party; and (Continued to Page 2) U. S. House Minority' Leader.John Rhodes com - Alimented Ohio's 16th Dis - .trict congressman, Ralph Regula of Navarre, for his voting record during the first session of the 94th Congress. "Congressman Regula again has compiled a truly exceptional voting record," the Arizona congressional leader said, referring to the 99.3 per cent response to the 4 8 8 various roll calls this year. Rep. Regula's response to the "yea" and "nay" votes was 100 per cent. Likewise his response was 100 per cent to the 178 re - corded vote calls. He was absent for only three of 119 quorum calls. Minority Leader Rhodes, in lauding Re p. Regula's diligence in attending to the business of the House, observed that the Ohio congressman also had a 97 per cent voting record I n the second session of the 93rd Congress. TROPHY WINNERS.
