WHY NOT A LOYALTY OATH? The American Federation & teacher* ha* terminated Hs annual convention, and like all conventions \n toneluiion drew up a set of resolutions. Among other things, the organization voted RETIRE & REAP REWARDS Jus» who* all goes on in the virtuous pursuit of "national defense"?

We will assume that nearly everyone asked to take one is a good citizen, not a member of any subversive group, and is worthy of whatever loan the government may be making to further the individual's education. Why, then, object to a loyalty oath? When immigrants to this country apply for hlp» they take a loyalty oath before re«,,,..« citizenship. A native born citizen is expected to be a loyal one, yet with the right to disagree with just about anything that he may choose, short of treason. But disagreement does men* research "All we want to know is:* What will the American public really want next year—big or small cars?"

In Washington's double talk, what the admiral meant was that retired officers could help companies In getting more business and selling more merchandise. The "contribute to the defense effort" statement certainly sounds patriotic, but we -doubt if the desire would be as strong if the profit motive were not involved.

Grinnell Herald-Register: — A scholastic mag- ; azine reported the results of a polling of 5,000 r school age youngsters and came up with the find; ing that kids don't like to be called "eggheads". In fact, the label "egghead" made the top of the list as the term most objected to by the r youngsters. \ Actually, what is needed is some proper identifying term to point out jthe excellent student I and to .place him in an honored position among -'his contemporaries — much in the manner the . term "first,string quarterback" does. What we're trying to say is that our con> formist society is conditioning the thinking of ; , our younger generation to the' point, that "egg•' head" is BAD as opposed to GOOD. ^ i The question is whether or not it really is. ,- What do you think? From Fairchild Engine & Aircraft Corp. he receives $12,000 a year plus $200 for each directors' meeting he attends. He joined Fairchild three weeks after he left, the navy. From Westinghouse the admiral receives $7,500 a year. V This adds up to $57,388 a year, not counting the board meeting income. . All of this" adds up to a lot of money, and we trust the admiral is earning it and he most likely is. However, it leaves a great, big question mark in .the public mind as to just where and how military expenditures are made, and also why. _ Even the Government Accounting Ottice is suspicious. They report that they Have been, able to turn up more than $12 million in "over' charges" on defense department contracts,jn.sre cent months. ' ... Retired military officers are in apposition to influence their brother officers still-, in the service and in key positions to act as purchasing agents. They are-in a position to oversell their own products, to overload the military and vastly increase cost of materiel and supply, and we , have already'had many examples of this. E. Call Street—Ph.

NUDITY HERE & THERE New York Herald Tribune — Some African clubwomen have launched a campaign against nudity in Ghana, according to a dispatch from our correspondent, A. T. Steele. They are 1 forcing secondhand clothes, in the northern region of that new country, on tribes women who have long gone about—very sensibly- in almost no clothes at all. This is the surest sign that progress in on th march in Ghana. When a society turns modern ' the clubwoman is never far behind, setting he hand to local improvement, and nothing so irks reformer as a girl who chooses to dress up i the comfortable habit of nature. Western missionaries brought so much pro- gres~s to the Polynesians, in the form of th_e Mother Hubbard, that they spoiled the islanders' grace— and gave them for the first" time, a sense of shame. 'Bicycling ihe act," is a term , i to variety acts that played" "two or; 'three 'big city f theaters on the same playdates. Where one chain had numerous theaters in a large city, it was mot an uncommon practise to give acts a 'little higher salary and book them into a couple, of theaters. .

NO MORE FREE RIDES — The American shipping (industry has been severly criticized for giving Government officials free* trips aboard its ships. Since these ships are heavily subsidized by the Government it amounts to giving them a free ride at the taxpayer's expense. Now Congress has put its feet down. Any shipping company wljuch offers f a Government official a free voyage or even one at reduced 1'ates faces a fine of up to $10,000. —«Q—— !
