Many are blind, or have empty sleeves or trouser legs by amputations as result of terrible war wounds.

Rural coniin"nity schools spend about $2.'>0().000,000 annually or about 40' ol the nations total. Rural educ.ition is a distinct and unique lield in American education and it involves the development of c ll rricula based upon experiences, environment' and the life interests and needs ol the pupils involved (both children and adults) and their pie-service education of teachers who can develop and use such curricula. Rural ed ll calion also consists ol a number of administrative problems, extern,il limn the actual classroom activities. I he most important ol which are school district reorganization, school llnance. schools building maintenance and construction, pupil transportation, the development and operation of the intermediate unit, and the provision on numerous services now known to be necessary to a comprehensive program ol ed"cational opportunit j'.

Even p .„ir judgcint nt on the part of I he TV people to put this bald spokesman ol the evil Kremlin ijaiiL; on such an important hour l"iiu program. We are highly pleased that President Kisenhower has shown the good taste and sound judge­ ment to firmly decline suggestions that he do an "equal time" TV rebuttal iperfoi mance. We believe any such "rebuttal" TV performance by our President would only result in cheapening the II. S. Presidency, in the eyes of many people. We hope Mr. Eisenhower will I irmly stand by his decision in this matter. ONE of the lundamental reasons why the Eisenhower second term is NOT going so well, is NOT the fault of the President or the rich and powerful men around him. That reason is the no-third-term amendment. From the very outset of his second term, he was, in all practical purpose, a "lame duck" President. This unfortunate fact will progressively weaken his position as the weeks and months come and go. It will be like-wise equally true of his successor, whom ever he may be, unless the amendment is somehow changed. Down thru the years our Presidents did well following the Washington tradition of no third term. Then came F. D. R., who developed a bad case of the indispensable man complex, and with his great political machine, his army of bureaucrats, his WPA legions, became an elective "Em- (perur Franklin the First", to quote an expression of a powerful Chicago newspaper. Then at his sudden deadi, the Presidency fell with almost crushing weight, on a man almost completely UN- prepared for the great burden. To "correct" this sort of situation, the no third-term amendment came about. Now, any Presi- ueiu tutu every x-iirsiucfic „ui be automatically a "lame duck" if he seeks or accepts a second term. It is unfortunate indeed, we Hamburg Newspaper Finds "Parallels Meet" in SUI Theologians Iowa City, Iowa — Three State University of Iowa theologians are demonstrating to German audiences a religious application of a mathematical law. according to a clipping from the Hamburger Fremdenblatt which just reached the SUI campus. The axiom: parallel lines arc' .straight lines which meet in the infinite. As applied by a German journalist to the SUI school of religion: the lines of our religious orientation meet m the infinite. The newspaper article reports how Professors Robert Welch (Catholic). George Forell (Protestant) and Fredcrich Bargebuhr (Jewish) stood side by side in a crowded Presbyterian Church in Hamburg recently to explain the SUI program in intcrreligioii instruction. It IK ars the headline "Treff- piinkt im Unemllichen: Ainen- kanische Theologen lieweisen Bruderhehkcit" (Meeting Point in the Infinite: American Theologians Prove lii othcrliiie.v. as translated by Professor Erich Eunke of thp SUI German department). It M'je> on to .-a>. ;n t: ansl.ition, that the Iowa theologians "rep- ir.rnt professionally their faiths in an objectively scientific and subjectively religious ^ensc. The students have every opportunity to inform Iheln.-elves about confessions other than their own, thus gaining a unique experience namely, that the tragic separation of the M hgions must not necessarily cause hatred and quarrels, bill '.ill give rise to ie- spect, veneration and love."

People living in problems lacing runt nity will continue to »rcw outside o"r cities. The city lolks will be accepting the ymiii" people into their midst as they graduate from the rural high schools and then Iroiu college. 1 hey also are gaining many new neighbors from time to time who move Irom the. farms and small rural communities. I his trend according to the sociologists will continue in the foreseeable l"ture. 1 he standards required to teach in schools in rural communities both for teachers and administrators are generally much lower than that lound in the cities. Good salaries, personnel policy, and good working conditions which relate to good teaching and good education are also much less freq"ently lound in rural communities. 1 he supply of teachers is much more serious in the larger towns and cities. All this and much more requires a re-study and restatement of the policy and program on a national scale. S u ch a study on a broad basis has not been done for a number of years. The leaders of the Department of Rural Education of the National Education Association and its members are currently devoting their energies to a re-statement of policy and program. The department will be inviting many persons to participate in this re-statement. Especially school board and P. T. A. members, classroom teachers, and school administrators can make significant contributions. The Department is also planning the annual conference of r u ral leaders to be held in Denver next October 1 1 th and 1 2th. The purpose of the conference will be to agree on policy and program for education to meet the educational needs of people living in rural communities of America. All people interested in rural education will be invited to concern themselves with this very serio u s problem, whether they live in rural communities or cities.
