f *' COH6R ATULATIONS! Carl Hamilton, pictured here, is to become head of fhe technical journalism department at lowalfdte Uftlyifsljy, January 1, 1962. ""• : l!

MdrVin> who is retiring ai of July K, Hamiltbrt Will carry the title* "of 'professor. Jamils W. SchvVdrtz, a' ridtlve of Fenton, I o w a, will become associate professor, and will be acting head of the department from July 1 to January 1. Hamilton and Schwartz are both graduates of Iowa State. Thus another weekly newspaper editor will again-head the journalism department at Iowa State; Professor Marvin is also a graduate of the Weekly ranks, as is Professor Leslie Moeller, head 'of'fh'e journalisnV and .communications school at (the State University of Iowa. .: While Iowa State gains a widely known iand highly respected leader, the Weekly, rtews- i^paper field in Iowa.will lose one of its strongest r editors ... but the loss will be more than offset by his new position where he and his staff .can have a dire'ct hand in developing future generations of Iowa newspapermen and women, and. new blood-in all fields of publishing and •communications work. * * * ADVICE ON CHILDREN The Sac City Sun - One thing that children should be taught somewhere along the line, is to respect the property of others. This duty, it ; se'ems, has been pretty generally overlooked and «there are scores of youngsters in every community who seem to think they have the right , to trespass on land that does not belong to them, to destroy vegetation and to take away with them anything that they can carry along. Vacant lots and property adjoining the house, or even the very lot on which the house is located, are the scenes of gang gatherings and mass destruction. Fences are knocked down, barriers are destroyed and gardens are tram- pelled upon. It is the result of a lack of training which should start in the home. Property owners are entitled to the protection of the law and youngsters caught destroying property in this manner should be dealt with accordingly.

The communists have . long p feachecl that we are only interested .iri 'our afiies arid neighbors because of imperialistic motives. Now one of the top world communists, Fidel Castro, has given us an easy method of rebuking this charge. His offer to trade the lives of some 1,200 rebel prisoners for 500 American tractors may well prove to be one of the greatest blunders ever made by a political leader. Americans everywhere will be quick to rally to this opportunity to help save the lives of dedicated fighters for a free Cuba, and the world will note the speed with which the necessary money will be raised. As other nations, especially those in Latin America, watch the quick response pf the citizens of the United States towards this effort to free the rebel captives they cannot help but be Impressed by our real intentions to help those who tight for the freedom of their homeland. If tRey compare this to the greedy ransom request; of Castro, if should place the U. S. in a good light for a change. We need this opportunity fo prove our good intentions fo the rest of the world let's hope we dp not muff the chance.
