"/ - A/o Afore Ghgmbw Of Commerce (Mitchell County Press) The city o,f Osqge is embarking on another "e^perifnent" which unquestionably will be watched with great interest by businessmen) in neighboring communities. Our town, for the first time in years, is operating without a Chamber of Commerce in anything but name. The unpleasant relationships caused by the switch from Saturday to Friday night openings constitute the major reason for the elimination qf activity on the, part of the Chamber of Commerce. Probably the most unfortunate aspect of this situation, and the one that will affect our community the most, is the suspension of activity by the retail trade committee of the Chamber. It is this organization which rallies the merchants together for promotions which bring people to our community. Sometimes these promotions are "strictly business," such as Dollar Days. Other times they mix business and pleasure, such as ridiculous Days. And on still other occasions they are community events. One of the difficulties behind any successful retail promotion in.our community has been the large number of merchants who have been cpntenf to let others do the work. With little or no expenditure of time or money, they have let those Who are "promotion conscious" carry the .ball. And these merchants who are willing to promote, not only their own businesses, but the entire, b.usmess community as well, are getting more than a little tired of it all. Yet Qsage is bound to suffer, we believe, lay the void thqf suspension pf retail trade committee activities has created. Osage's business cities and towns. Some businesses will not suffer beep use they are so promotion conscious and set big that they can promote effectively on their own. Others will not suffer because they never promoted in the first place. But there are numerous businesses which will suffer because they have lost the power they once possessed to promote cooperatively. It is to these businesses that The Press-News makes this suggestion: why not, as has been done in Mason City and other communities form a smaller retail promotion committee? Enlist the support of only those who will agree to "carry the ball". By doing so you will effectively fill the void that suspension of Chamber activities has caused. ' * * * CREATING "THE IMAGE" New that JFK has been in the Presidency well over ,a month, and the country is still here, there are signs that the creation of "the image" of Mr. Kennedy in the oublic mind is underway. We have noted, after the brief honeymoon of a few weeks, that our overwhelmingly republican press is now at work (1) emphasizing that if you didn't go to Harvard you aren't fit to hold a government position, and (2) the Kennedys are sort of "above the people" like wanting French chefs and stuff like that. Maybe you don't think much about this now, but the seeds of the idea are being planted in your innocent little skull, and the first thing you know "the image" has crystallized 'just, as the image makers wanted it to. , the finals, Other Altfbfla .Wrestlers Tn "the jjrieet weffelJVjtaikras, McGorJkll ,artd piBwbfth';: ffte Bulldogs woutid ub fifth 'in the stendWs. fort' i3c%e won the team "trophy, ' "• • " 7- i « • » "Colder Ami S ( now"'w,as the forecast Issued by" the weatherman for this a'rea.,"\The' news wasn't "greeted w'itjv niuch" en-' thxtsiasm, to say the least.

He did this not only by winning election against odds but by a deep and abiding faith in his own ability to.c|o a good job as governor He has done a good job and by doing so he has put —, the Republicans, who normally control the state, on their mettle. If they fail to deal with knotty state problems in the future there will no longer be the reluctance that once existed to turn to the olhor party. * * * A bright spot in the picture — employees of a furniture firm in Massachusetts agreed to continue a wage cut of 10 percent without fuss so that the company they work for can stay in business . . . and they can keep their jobs.

Deaf My cooperating teacher says uua ian \. cm cAuauiumm-jr pruueaure tor high school girls but I don't enjoy it. I'm a veteran of four years military service and up until now hadn't realized,.that in the past eigh{ years girls.haye become so blunt, in spllc^tiig the teacher's good graces for a grade. I'm sure none of the girls iti. my Migii school class took paYt'in such'an activity. ; • Being 'that I'm older, more mature and more settled, I don't wish lo offend the girls or create an incident which would make them rebel ifo'ward academic work which I'm, attempting to present. Will you please offer some suggestion? —• G. M. J. Dear G. M. J.: I think the more you let this situation go unchecked, the w6rse it will become. Believe it or not, but there may be a couple of girls in your class who have "crushes" on you—some- thing'they'll get over in time. '•• • . However, in the case of 'these girls deliberately making eyes at you and embarrassing you, .that's something else again. It just may hold true that a group of them are in on this scheme and that the "mooning" is all part of a plan. Then again, each girl may be on her pwn. In either case, I think it's time you told the girJs you are the teacher and will grade according to ability and work completed. • I doubt if this will create an incident but it will shake up the girls enough so that they will realize you mean business.

I'm sure you have some very good reasons why you think as you do and I would appreciate your help. — Mary Lou. _ Dear Mary Lou: I don't drink and never have, yet I can say I m not violently opposed to drinking in moderation by adults Per. sonally, I believe an individual should wait until he or she is 25 to start drinking and by that time won't want to start. In several years as a newspaperman and working with law en. forcement agencies, I've seen the harm been and liquor can to teenagers but have never yet seen the bright side. I doubt if 'there is one First of all, too many kids take their first drink because they don t want to be considered "chicken". Secondly, a girl who drinks is more apt 'to park and do 'things she otherwise wouldn't do If an employer knows his potential 18-year-old employee drinks, there s a good chance the individual won't be hired. In my particular business, I allow no 'drinking or smoking by employees because I am employed' by .you-teen-agers and if I preach against tobacco and liquor for young people, 1 should practice what I preach—myself and those working .for rrte. . '''•',' Drinking and speed, individually or a combination of both are a major cause of 'traffic accidents today among young people and while a boy may be able to stop his speeding car in time if his senses^are clear, the odds mount against him when he has alcohol in his system. Many parents won't allow their daughters to date a boy who drinks. ' Equally as important as anything, drinking is expensive. You cant.sit at <a bar all evening without spending at least several dollars Very few young drinkers can stand that expense and if they continue that nightly social life, they wind up in unnecessary debt. These are only a few factors why those of 18 shouldn't drink and I m^ sure you know many others yourself. Why don't you Phone CY 4-3535 — Your Newspaper here's your autograph.
