An experiment in composting, “one of the disposal systems of the future.”
Feb. 19, 1960: Vice President Richard Nixon says, "My theory is this -- play the game fairly but play it hard. I quarrel with the thought that we shouldn't mind losing. I feel that the loser should be bitterly disappointed, but that he should take his disappointment out on himself, not on his opponent. And this applies to politics, economics and to education as well as sports."
