Pi* Fourteen -Blythevllte (Arit.) Cflurtor rTewt - MonHiy. April«, WHO IS ON RELIEF? EMPLOYED RECEIVING SUPPLEMENTATION 8,120 There ore some vague answers when the question of just who gets relief is posed to the average American citizen. As an example of the facts, the figures for New York City during June 1%5 are broken down in the above chart. About 7 per cent of the population is reached by public assistance of one kind or another. There are 546,242 persons represented above. Biggest segment, always, is aid for dependent children. tl^ootkeel (/.Seat — bu max iturm — .One of the most impprtan public meetings to be held in the lower Missouri Bootheel is the one scheduled for Tuesday evening, April 26, in the South Ele mentary School auditorium in Hayti at 7:30. At this gathering, to which everyone in Pemiscot, Dunklin and southern New Madrid counties who are interested in the establishment of higher educational facilities in the region are Invited, the decision will be made whether to proceed further and more concretely with the Bootheel Junior College proposal. A special committee of Chamber of Commerce members and officials, and four school superintendents from the region, met in Hayti Tuesday of this week and came up with an excellent and fast - moving program for the coming regional meeting First there will be talks by ex perts who will explain how i Junior College district can be created in the lower Boothee" by application of the Junior Col lege Act passed by the Missouri General Assembly a few years ago, and under which severa such districts have been established over the state with others In the process of being established. Next, there will be a question and answer session with any person present having the op portunity at that time to ask any question he has on the pro . posal. After all informational points are settled, the meeting will get down to the itty gritty part — voting on whether to endorse the proposal and go aheac with it, or drop it. If the en dorsement Is voted, the nex step will be to set up a per manent organization or steer Ing committee to proceed with a program, the objective of which will be an election on the proposal to establish the district In order to gain time, officers and various chairmen of this organization will be selected at the meeting, if that move is indicated at that time. People in the region interested In the college plan should keep in mind that this basic organization will function only through a possible future area-wide election on the proposal. It will not comprise the proposed college's board of trustees, since these offices will be filled later on. Many people are asking where such a college would be located In the three - county area. That information isn't known yet, and it will be in the hands of the college's board of trustees to determine that later on with the assistance of the Missouri State Department of Education and jprobably a federal agency, for the reason that such junior colleges can qualify for a very considerable amount of state and federal aid if they «re established correctly. From the start, it has been the thinking of both educators and lay leaders who have brought the proposal to this 'stage that this was not the type of project for various chambers of commerce and other commu- "tiity groups to fight for to have -'located within their corporate limits as a community industry. The .whole idea behind « ''A pair of US-pound, pressurized fuel cell sections aboard -two Gemini flijhti provided the power to run the radio, computer, environment control and .ether electrical systems aboard (be craft. junior college for the lower boot- heel is to have a good one and locate it where it can be easily within driving distance of every student in its district who wishes to attend. Thus, where it will be located will have to be left up to the board of trustees and others involved in its operation and our prediction is that these gentlemen (and ladies too) will take a long hard look at a new road map of the three counties and check out driving distances to and from all suggested sites. The reason for locating the college at a point that is within easy daily driving distance for the students is that would make it possible for them to attend the college and live at home, bringing junior college education within reach of many young people in the Bootheel who have been unable to afford it by attending the more distant colleges and living away from home. If this basic consideration isn't used in the proposed school's location, we would be defeating its purpose at the start and might as well forget about it. The ability to serve the most students in its district will be the prime consideration in its location, if it comes to that point. Another situation that the people of the region who are interested in this proposal should keep in mind is that such Junior College district covering four Ozark counties in the Poplar Bluff region has already been organized and received a favorable vote in the past April 5 election. This one, to be known as the Three Rivers Junior College, covers Butler, Wayne, Ripley and Carter counties. They are off and running. Educational and lay leaders in an area centering around Sikeston have also moved to organize a junior college district compassing Scott, Mississippi, Stoddard and New Madrid counties, and it is quite possible that further developments in that endeavor will be made known soon. At one time it appeared that movements in this field were being started that could result in the lower Boot- heel region being left in a pocket outside other junior college districts to the north and north west. If this takes place the lower Bootheel would be left without sufficient potential to support such a college, and in that event our students attending these colleges would be placed in the position of having to pay out-of-district tuition, and that should not be permitted to happen. The way we see it, there is plenty of room for three such junior college dis tricts to be established in Southeast Missouri which will adequately serve the entire region One-Fourth of Mankind » «• «••*••«•• ••••••" Do nothing. —Lao-tzu After Confuciui, the next great name to emerge during the formative period of Chinese philosophy was Lao-tzu. Whether that name belonged to an actual man, and when that man lived and died, is not known. However, the school attributed to Lao-tzu- Taoism—has been second only to Confucianism in its influence on the Chinese soul. In many ways the two are completely different. . Where the morality of Confucius was rational and practical and concerned with society, Taoism was intuitive and emotional and concerned with the individual. Lao-tzu taught the doctrine of achievement through inaction. The sage strives after nothing, accepts everything, and thus finds harmony with nature and toe elusive Too— MENClUS'.l The Sowed Right of rebellion "the way," the eternal order underlying the universe and pervading reality. According to Lao-tzu, the ideal society was one in which villages were close enough to hear each other's cocks-crow in the morning but had no other contact with one another. Other teachers and schools that appeared during this intellectually stimulating time included: Mencius—who tried to extract the best from Confucianism. He believed that men were good by nature and needed only good rulers to set examples for them. If a ruler was bad, however, the people, acting in the name of heaven, possessed a sacred rite to overthrow him and replace him. It was a doctrine that was to be applied to more than one corrupt dynasty. Mo Ti—a utilitarian who condemned anything that was not economically productive/— THE LEGALISTS Obedience "to the State both music and war, for example. He attacked the elaborate etiquette of Confucianism and attempted to extend its emphasis on family love to embrace all men. The Legalists—cynics and realists who opposed Confucianism absolutely. To them, all this talk of morality was nonsense. Government should be based not on love but on power, not on the moral example of rulers but on laws, .which were-to be ruthlessly applied to high and low alike. In the chaotic years of the later Chou dynasty, Legalism had a. growing-appeal to the war-weary Chinese. When, two centuries before Christ, it was adopted as the guiding philosophy of the state of Ch'ih, it was to result in .a transformation of China such as was not be to be seen again until our own time. NEXT: "First Universal Emperor" — 10 or more counties. In this consideration many people in the lower Bootheel may have to readjust their educational thinking and conclusions in that times have changed and the time has now come when we must provide our high school graduates with opportunities to continue their education with college and vocational training facilities located in their home areas. What is particularly attractive about such a junior college as that proposed for Southeast Missouri is that they can offer not only academic sub jects but also technical and vocational courses as well. For example, if a student wishes to pick up a year or two in academic work in the junior college then transfer to a four-year college or university for additional work toward a degree, he can do it. For those students who prefer technical or vocational training only, so they can obtain satisfactory and remunerative employment quickly in certain skilled fields, that will be available to them, too. In addition, adult education programs can be offered and a strong counselling service provided to make it all work. You can hardly beat a deal like that these days when a college education or technical training is now required to keep our young people — and unskilled adults — out of the unemployed ranks.

NEW YORK (AP) - Tilings a columnist might never know if he didn't open his mail: To remain normal yourself, one of the best things you can do is marry someone normal. That seems to be the message of a recent study of 38 "well- adjusted" husbands. The study found they all har- mentally healthy wives.
