Miller in a New York speech Recently show a remarkable lack of common sense with regard to some of the world s touchy ^problems. They also can make us thankful that »Mr. Miller is not in or close to the drivers seat Jn government. Speaking at a party rally he is quoted as. "decrying the fact that when the Communist-built wall in East Berlin was erected, the Allies did inot tear It down "brick by brick." The wall, which nobody west of the line, '.and not many east of the line for that matter, like, was built In East German territory. Just Twhat does Mr. Miller think would happen if nhe Allies invaded East Berlin and started to tear Tdown the wall "brick by brick." »' What would'happen, in reverse, if East German military invaded West Berlin and proceeded to tear something down. • * A cold war of talk and summit meetings and "bluster and sabre rattling and general dissen- ijon is not pleasant; but it is a whole lot more "bcceptable than the hot war which Mr. Miller s •femarks indicates he would precipitate. «•• . • . * . . * * , • . "STUPENT EPITOR COMMENTS ™ Down at Iowa City, the assistant managing editor of the SUI dally paper, writes a column Tailed "File 13." . : Last week he had the following comment to make on the state in general, as Tollows: , "Gov. Erbe and others are telling lowans: There is no California. Seems to me the Governor indulges in too much negative thinking, like There Are No Cities in Iowa. Or, There is no 4iquor-by-the-drink in Iowa - only along the borders and in the interior. And, There are no Democrats in Iowa - so that's why the legislature gerrymandered the state. I have another •negative thought to throw outs "There is no pro- .gross in Iowa."

OFFJCIAl, CITY ANP CQyNTY ADVERTIsma RATES ON This happens to be .''National Electrical Week", selected : because the birthday of Thomas Alva Edison is February 11. ,,.... If Thomas 'Edison, the father of electricity, were alive today, how would he do in college ? One educator has expressed the opinion that Edison.could not even get into a modern engineering- school. "He wasn't a man" say? Dr. Carroll V. Newsome, president of New York University. '' ; ; <' . '''•• f • Edisin's formula was "trial and error , and he had plenty of trial and of error before he ' accomplished his goal in life. , The educator's point was -that: today the student is presumed to fit himself to the college, rather than the, college to the student. Todays college students are forced to struggle through a traditional curriculum devised long ago and including courses which the student neither rteeds ° r T^would be interesting to see jf Dr. .Newsome's school is cloing it different. However, Thomas Alva Edison was a man with an idea, and also with a great abundance of perserverence. He believed he was on the track of something, and didn't quit until he made the discovery he sought. , To him the world owes much - as mucn, perhaps as any man in our history. _ Who knows ? Perhaps in some of the la- particularly boratories, today, there is another young man, with an idea, who may stick to it until he formulates a cure for cancer, or old age, or even a successful formula for nations getting along • 'in the world. »•''-*• EAGER BEAVER IN STYIE IOWA FAU)> CITIZEN - The National Edu' cation Association says that education should not produce just average pupils but also well adjusted, eager beavers." It's good to .see someone or some group speak up for the eager beaver." Too often the term is used as a form of ridicule. , The authors of an NEA booklet contend that parents regard their children as 'things m need of correction; teachers regard pupils as "things" to be fitted into grade levels and mpld.- ed to conform to what is expected of the average; and churchmen may have the same effect of shrinking the youthful personality,. As a result the child tends to learn and perceive only those things which promise to make him better off. In other words, he takes the line of least resistance, shunning venture^ some or creative ideas.. • • The rare "eager beavers" say the authors - are "extremely adequate, self-actualizing' qnd see themselves as persons liked, wanted, acceptable and able. ,„ How do you produce "eager beqvers 1 These folks say by ceasing to regard children as "a kind of enemy of schools," persons cer- tqin to gp wrong unless someone keeps them straight. We can use all of the "eager beavers our homes and schools can produce. ,„„,„* THE PILES OP THE ALGdNA tJPPtiK DES .MQ1NES Fefi. 17, 1942 ' s i * « Instead of going to church, Sheriff Art Gogley of Kossuth county idashed to Wesley early Sunciay niorning to investigate dahiale; that occurred there dufing the preceding night.
