There is nothing startling about this figure. It is based on the 1957 state school survey which showed that there are 2,200 districts in the state. Reduction of the number of districts in Kansas is one of the purposes of the Senate Bill 400 now being questioned in the courts. It is under this bill that a Franklin County unification subcommittee has been operating for several months. This county has some 47 districts, grade and high school. After several other counties, Miami, Douglas. Johnson, and The fourth district would be the Ottawa area or school district 30. This would give this county four school districts, about double what the KSTA spokesman says would be the average for Kansas' 105 counties, The county subcommittee has voted not to consider a county unit system, that is one school board for the entire county the ultimate aim of such a county unit system would be one tax structure for school purposes and one level of school meetings, it has become apparent that equality for all.

By CYNTHIA LOWRY AP TV-Radio Writer NEW YORK (AP) - David Levy, former NBC vice president in charge of television programming who locked into place the network's popular schedule for this season, took a critical look this week at the industry he's left behind. In a speech before students of the University of Pennsylvania's school of communications, Levy particularly condemned TV's tendency to follow "trends" in program content. Levy expressed hope that, just because NBC's new "Dr. Kildare" and ABC's new "Ben Casey"— both series concerned with dedicated young doctors in large hospitals—have been proved hits that the networks would refrain from following them up with a flood of series about young den tists, young psychiatrists or young ophthalmologists. e could not have been more adroit in pinpointing one of TV's big troubles. ABC demonstrated his theme vhen the network's new audience jarticipation show, "Yours for a »ong" had its evening premiere Tuesday. The new show has so many obvious ancestors—"Stop the Music," "Name That Tune" among ;hem—that it had a familiar look immediately. But the big, "new" tern is that when the contestants have finished trying to supply missing lyrics for old, awfully well-known songs, the studio audience joins in and sings the last chorus. And so do, it is presumed, the folks at home, because the words are flashed on the screen. Remind you of anything? It must have taken a lot of creative thought to cotne up with a "Sing Along" device that might pick up some of Mitch Miller's success and high audience ratings. "Yours for a Song" is a shabby, dull show in spite of all the borrowing from successful ones—and because it is so imitative and contrived it deserves a short life- Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channel 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Before The Rain Comes KUALA LUMPUR — It is an odd climate and one we never have exactly encountered before. This near the equator we had anticipated high temperatures and a burning sun, but we have experienced neither. The daily range of the thermometer is no more than 10 degrees upward from about 72. Through the past 10 days the sun has appeared on an average no more than an hour or two out of 24. When it does, it b r e a k s through the clouds only obscurely.

JOSEPH G. MOLNER "Dear Dr. Molner: I have had two children, the first being born the day before the date the doctor gave me. The second one wasn't born on the given date, so the doctor forced labor. "I am now going to have my third baby. Will it be born without forcing labor?—Mrs. S." Most likely, but I can't say positively. There isn't any way to pre- : diet in advance the exact day a baby will be born, and coming within one day, as with your first child, was the result of good calculating — and luck! There can be a perfectly normal variation of two weeks or so — either way, early or late. ***• "»«"« In extreme cases, there have been variations of quite a bit more. Even though labor was forced in one instance this does not mean that it will be forced the next time. After all, the first baby was a day "early." but the next one wasn't. The date calculated is only an approximate one It gives you a chance to make general plans in advance. Forcing, or inducing, labor is a decision which must be made on the basis of the facts in the particular case. It is not something to be done just to make a baby be born on Halloween, or Aunt Lulu's birthday, or some other such date. Rather, inducing labor is done for health re- sons. The sie of the baby, as compared to the mother's measurements, is one. If, clearly, the baby has had adequate time to develop, but the mother's measurements are rather small, inducing labor is a god way of minimizing the strain on both mother and baby. There are other considerations, too, but they become technical. In any event, the welfare of mother and baby is of prime importance. There is no room for capricious "choice of birth date." Yes, this applies equally to babies being born around midnight of Dec. 31. It's nice to be "the first baby born in the New Year," and sometimes this also brings some loot such as baby clothes, baby food and other such stuff. But it's no excuse for either delaying or hastening a birth. Except when there is clear and firm reason for acting otherwise, the best time for a baby to be born is the time the baby selects "Dear Dr. Molner: I have friends who feed their dog out of the same dishes they eat from. These dishes are all washed together. The couple has colds all winter. Could the cold germs be gotten from the dog dishes?—Mrs. G.R.S." I doubt whether the dishes have anything to do with the colds. On the other hand, as a general precaution I certainly think dogs should have their own feeding dishes. (Safer for the dogs, : too!) "Dear Dr. Molner: What causes my ring and watch to tarnish when I wear them?—H,D." Certain chemicals in the perspiration react with the metal. Sulfur is one. There isn't much you can do to change your system. Possibly you could apply a thin coat of lacquer to the parts that touch the skin.
