2-Alaono Qo.) Upper-PM Meirm Tuesday, July 5, 1960 EDUCATION WITHOUT COLLEGE ; So perhaps you are one of those high school graduates who is NQT going to college! You are not destined to become a second- rate citizen if you yourself desire to continue yqur education. You can do just as well as many wr\o go to college - and perhaps more, if you wish to apply yourself. Many of America's greatest leaders had no- thihg more than a brief, formal school education. But they did not stop there. Washington, Franklin, Lincoln, Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry ford, J. C. Penney, Walter Chrysler, to mention a few, educated themselves by reading and learning to think. A university course of study is based chiefly on two approaches to cramming an education into a mind. First, it is by lectures. Secondly, it requires a gre,at deal of reading on given subjects. Examinations, leading to degrees, are based on determining how much of the lecture program and the outside assigned reading program, the student has absorbed. One does not have to go to college to do the reading. Abraham Lincoln failed to finish what we would consider grade school, but he n 'j' ze d"by the major powers of the'world, includ- SOMETHING HAS TO GIVE 'Effective with the 1962 election, Iowa will lose one seat in the House of Representatives, the Census Bureau, after Dec. 1, will furnish a plan for reapportionment of the congressional districts. The plan might or might not be accepted. But no matter, the present eight seats in the House from Iowa will be trimmed to seven — which means somebody's going to lose a congressman. And when we find out how and where, watch the fireworks. But Iowa is not alone. Twenty four states in all will lose Congressional seats as a result of the census. * * * WE HAVE TO KEEP NIMBLE Being nimble is a great asset, whether you are competing in a track meet or running a race in the diplomatic field of world politics. A few days ago the government qf'Turkey, after a series of anti-government demonstrations and riots, tumbled. Between students and the Turkish army, a new government took office. This neVv government has already been recog- never ceased to have an absorbing curiosity and a Jove of reading of all kinds, including newspapers and books. From them he received a liberal education of the past, and kept abreast of the era in which he lived. Graduation from high school can be the end of the educational process, but it need not be for any intelligent young man or woman who is determined to continue his or her own education without benefit of college or university classes. * * * MIGHTY MIDGET MINDS -Washington columnist Ed Koterba, who at one time wrote the Washington Highlight column for this newspaper, had an interesting article recently in his now daily-syndicated series. He said that the civil defense administration is asking another $60,000 for a fourth year to continu.e with its study of "how a human behaves in a disaster." Koterba points out that the 3-year appropriation, totaling $180,000 has resulted in a summary which states that "people can survive h very, on ing ourselves. But here is where being nimble enters into the picture. The OLD government has been our ally of sorts for 15 years. On Turkish soil we have military bases, air bases and missile launching sites. Into Turkey we have poured millions of dollars in exchange for this privilege. The old government, which we supported strongly, evidently was out of step somewhere, down the line, with its own people. But, world politics being what it is, and with our bases still on the same soil, we lost no time in recognizing the NEW government and extolling its virtues. Everything we formerly said about the old government's goodness, we now say about the new government in power by revolt. This is a good sign, in some ways. We've ' been a little slow in the past, lacking the nim bleness that is required to transfer our allegiance frorrt one group to another within a matter ol hours on the world scene. It may be somewhat hypocritical, but don't forget those military bases.
