I recently enjoyed reading this story in the 1963 Agricultural Almanac and I hope that Hartselle Enquirer readers will enjoy it as much as I did.

The story reads as follows:

“Computers vs. Men”

Computers, those intricate machines, which can do lighting fast calculations that would take men years to work out, will never take the place of humans who act with initiative, courage and skill. Rather than having these machines become the masters of men, let men harness the computers to serve mankind. Don’t disregard the value of the computer. It can bring you valuable information that will help you. But a computer is no better than the data fed into it. Unless it starts with what it needs to give you answers, the answers it gives will be inadequate.

Automation, in which computers play a great part, is becoming far more widespread than ever. Many farmers and businessmen have machines doing what was formerly done by men, without even thinking that their operations are automated. But there will always be a need for men of strong and resolute character who are willing to take chances, willing to work hard and willing to look ahead to make this a better world in which to live. A man who is down on his luck can still fight back to success, but a computer that’s out of whack needs a man to fix it.

Members of Shady Grove Baptist Church express Christian love and prayers for the following soldiers and their families: Jeff Hartsfield-Afghanistan, Brandon Jones-Iraq, Derek Jones-Marines, Aaron Money-Afghanistan, Jeremy White-Virginia, Jack C. Herbert, John Black, Joseph Hardin, Wes Parker, Anthony Thomas, Matthew Young, Lee Thompson and Brad Wallace. May God bless all of our soldiers and their families and may God grant us peace in 2013.
