But these laws as we all know are pretty, much behind the times and the outcome now Is to coddle the children too much. , It Is sort of reassuring to find a man in Ribicoff's position with his feet on the ground, and not floating around in the wild blue yonder. * * * . 15 YEARS TOO LATE One thing that we understand better than .we did before is that we are 15 years late in endeavoring to solve the problem of East and West Berlin, and that the residents of East Berlin ,are 15 years late in deciding that they would like to move to West Berlin. Perhaps if is undue optimism, but it hardly seems possible that another catastrophic world i/var should develop over this problem. It hardly leems possible that the nations involved — any 6f them, including Russia — could be so stupid •'As; to let the matter go to an attempted settlement by force of arms. ' We must share at least one segment of the blame for the present situation; We'have been in a dominant position for 15 years, since the end of World War II, witb a stake in the Berlin setup/ and we have done, very lUtle in the way to bring about a permanent solution. True, we indicated'a fortitude and a refusal to be bluffed, during Truman's administration, when we airlifted supplies into embargoed West Berlin. But while we did exhibit a toughness then in a military sense, we did not-achieve any.comparable success on the diplomatic front. ;.-.-'•. • , Khruschey;and ; Russian, leaders before him,; ,' have managed to keep us,:off balance ,on\Berlin i ' and on otheir,trouble sppts.tIf hardly^seern.s.liltely , , that they actually want a fu|l scaleS^ar ovjSiany * of these trouble spots. ; j ;<-.•" -wr-j.;,.,-,•> 'I Yet, unless we can negotiate a solution/' whereby some of .these "adopted" areas return' to running their own country, we. will find our»selves to continue to be spread all over the wortd with men and money and repeated international crisis.

It would hardly seem feasible to speed up the program by raising'taxes another-2^ mills, when the harder surface's have hot had an effect on total maintenance costs in the county. One reason may be — according to the board — is that people are expecting gravel roads to be kept in better shape. Higher speeds, heavier trucks and farm equipment and a higher traffic count create more care oh the roads.

" QFPICIAL CITY ANP COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON If EQUEST Rock Rapids Reporter — The election of directors for our various school systerns is a very important responsibility for all citizens- — and very shortly We will be called upon to exercise that responsibility. Without in any way questioning the competency or performance of the men whose terms are ending this year, we hope that there are several other candidates for the offices. Elections lose their meaning, when the vor ters have no choice of candidates — there should be contests for'every political office. Locally we have had a very sorry record of voting in school elections. Time after time the vote of the teachers in the school system has been enough to decide the elections — only much of the time there hasn't been a choice of candidates, so there was little to decide. Let's have several candidates for every vacancy this year — and then let's all get out and vote. * * * WHY DO THEY RUN AWAY ? Grundy Register — All countries have restrjq- tions to limit the number of foreigners to be granted admission. Few if any countries have restrictions to forbid any of their people from leaving their country as long as they are not guilty of any crime. The Communists in East Germany are now enforcing a rule to forbid any residents of East Germany from leaving that part of the country and they threaten ta start a war to enforce the rule, The Communists have been telling' the world that their way of life is the best. It must be embarrassing to them when they have to shut the gate to the many who want to get away from the kind of life the Communists have for them. People don't run away from a country that treats them well. * * * Vacations are a wonderful tonic to one's I )3aJth, although tiring. The tiredness is, how- etver,. of a different nature than that resulting f rom one doing his regular work. In addition tlhey provide an interesting outlook on life as otne meets from one's local habitat.
