These stu- cent of high dents rank in trie top 1 per Hie nation. school seniors in Word has been received by friends of Kermit Chase, former superintendent at the Seneca, Lone Rock and Fenton schools during their consolidation period, of the sudden death of Mrs. Chase at their home at Hemet, Calif. Mrs. Chase was to be buried at Arlington, Iowa. Brian Looft, son of the David Loofts, was honored on his third birthday anniversary, Sunday, with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Glen Hoppe of Truman, Minn., and the Marvin Hoppes of Madelia, Minn., joining them for dinner. Vernon Wilberg, who is in the air corps, has completed his basic training at Lackland Air Base arid had a few days with his parents before reporting for future assignment. Mrs. C. 0} Bailey became ill at her home at Seneca last Saturday and that night was taken to Emmetsburg hospital by ambulance where she is having x- rays and tests taken. Mrs. Wayne Ohnemus and Mrs. Henry Looft attended an Extension lesson on convenience foods given by Lois Busch, Kossuth county home economist, Friday afternoon at the Extension meeting room at Algona. Shirley Ohnemus and Margaret Bierstedt have completed their business course at Hamiltons Commercial College at Mason City. Margaret returned home but Shirley will be spending a few more days in Mason City.

The Bill and Mark Bernhards and their families were Chrlstma^ • E've guests at the parental, Maurice Bern- BY TOM WALLER Each year in the South there are two kinds of Christmas the black and the white. Most are well-familiar with the Joys of a northern Christmas; lowan Carol Hanisch knows them well. But Carol found little joy in the "Black Christmas" she experienced this year in Edwards, Mississippi. The 23-year-old native of Bancroft (la.) spent Christmas with a Negro widow and her 13 children. The father of the family reportedly had been shot and killed some years ago because he had tried to buy land, a white man's taboo often placed on the Negro. For four days Carol witnessed what southern Negroes call "Black Christmas," a time when renewed spiritual faith is the only element separating December 25th from the rest of the year. No tree, decorations, or gaily-wrapped presents could be found in the drafty, foundationless shack of plantation origin. Miss Hanisch is taking a "vacation" from her work with the Freedom Information Service (FIS), a small, yet statewide organization designed to aid Negroes. She heads a seven- man staff which provides information and equipment necessary for Negro groups who wish to improve living conditions through self-help cooperative movements. The FIS is'a sub-division of the Delta Ministry which, in turn, is a member of the National Council of Churches. The council financially supports the activities of the FIS. Miss Hanisch joined the FIS in July of 1965, leaving the Des Moines bureau of United Press International after ten months of work, because she felt "compelled to help" Negro voter- registration. She originally planned a five-week stay, but she became more dedicated and stayed on after a first-hand look at Mississippi discrimination. Carol, a spirited redhead, frankly admits that she, herself, is often the object of white discrimination because of her efforts. It is not uncommon for people to point at her on the street and shout indignant remarks. She explains, however, that the FIS isn't an agitating organization, or a thankless handout group, but a program-encouraging Information center, hoping to operate on an $80,000 foundation grant. She points out the fact that southerners are actually leading and performing the various movements to help Negroes who are "sick and tired of being sick and tired," Carol feels that Negro living conditions in Mississippi are "the worst of all southern states . . . The Negro is no better off now than before the Civil War in times of slavery," despite the federal civil rights enactments of 1964. "The laws exist, but aren't enforced. Little integration has taken place. For example, the laundromat at Edwards still has two entrances, one for Negroes with a blue line painted around the door. Besides," she continues, "you can't issue a court order to every segregated restaurant and gas station." Federal law requires full integration through the first four elementary grades in Mississippi, yet only 1,500 of 325,000 children in the first four grades are Negro. Only 12 of 82 counties in the state have federal registrars to register voters, and Negroes are still turned away from these. One can't help wondering then, how the Negro is reacting to continued white dominance. Carol calls the Negro reaction "violent" in that many Negroes are armed for self-protection. On the other hand, as Carol sees it, "civil rights laws and movements have accomplished something in Mississippi; they have given the Negro self-respect, a chance at leadership, and an idea of what is his, or what can be his. Even illiterate men prove to be adequate leaders in rights movements." Carol is a 1964 graduate of the Drake University School of Journalism and was selected for the Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. While at Drake she was a member of the Student-Faculty Council and editor of a literary pamphlet entitled Breakthru. She is a member of a women's national journalism fraternity, Theta Sigma Phi, and a 1960 graduate of Sentral high school at Fenton. Carol Hanisch undoubtedly realized the southern Negroes plight when she chose to try to brighten one family's "Black Christmas." She can't give a murdered father back to those thirteen unfortunate children, but she was to be back in Mississippi January 10, giving what she can.
