Noble Gill School Plan Wins Commendation An educational progrum drawn up by Noble Gil!, Blylhoville businessman and vice chairman of the State Board of Education, to provide incentives Cor teachers and at the same time place new emphasis on Americanism is winning praise outside Mississippi Coiintv whore it has been adopted as a special project for the Farm Bureau. When the project was outlined to the Mississippi County Farm Bureau recently, the Courier News was nsked by Ijoth the Associated Press and the United Press for information about Uic project and the news items published in Little Rock newspapers prompted the Arkansas Democrat Sunday to express editorial approval of the idea, which has the backing of educational leaders in Arkansas. Under the caption "Blytlieville Has an Idea," the Arkansas Democrat said editorially: "You probably saw in the Democrat - a news article from Blylhcville, telling of a plan they are developing there to inspire the schools of Mississippi county to do a better job. "Thought up by Noble Gill, a former teacher, now a business man, approved by State Commissioner of Education Ralph B. Jones, and sponsored for the 1948-49 year by the county Farm Bureau, the plan looks to creating more interest in our American wav of life "Recognition would be given' the school in the county which doo s most to solve Us problems; 1 0 the layman who does most for education; to the superintendent whose schools show thc most progress; to the teacher in each school system who is judged most effective- and to ll,o outstanding teacher in the county. There would be separate contests lor Negro schools. •'Something o £ this kind is wiciclv needed. Our democratic system has n "o "achi,,cr.v in it for Ulc express purpose °f generating enthusiasm for demo cracy. Communism teaches communism through the schools, prt,s and radio, and alh»« «o unbiased view of allj -othw Astern. In our democracy, this is all left to voluntary effort. The school mav 1'eely examine all systems. "That plan worked well enough in otir , farly years. There was a fiery patriotism then, inherited from out' struggle for national independence. I found ex ;pression in the schools. It pervaded the press. It blazed forth in countless political and Fourth of July orations. "But in later years, that spirit llas waned. \Ve may love our country as much as we ever did; but many of us rarely My so, and even seem to be a little ashamed to admit such a sentiment. .New problems and interests have claim* our attention. The schools reflect ch«««, Somg of them seem to pro- duce as much doubt of democracy faith in it. "Thei'e is need of a livelier appreciation of our blessings. The factor of K iiaUon's strength is the faith its pecj- 1'le havo in it, and their love for it. A failure there is a fatal weakness, which wealth of armament cannot save. Let's all think about Uiat JilyUicvillc plan." The plan offered liy Mr. Gill lias great possibilities and the idea can bear much fruit in the form of encouraging teachers throughout the country to do a better job in preparing the boys and girls in our schools today for citizenship which approaches the interest of the founders of this nation,. . Thai interest has been lugging for a long time and the benefits of citizenship in the first and freest of all democracies has been taken too much for granted. To give the Gill plan a chance for success, at a time when militant forces are at work in unsuspected places to undermine democracy and the very foundation of the government of a free people, Mississippi Conntians can and must work hard to demonstrate the plan. It is a project which calls for work on the part of the'Farm Bureau lenders and the school foi'ces of tin; county, nnd the success for the movement will be measured in the degree which it interests the boys and girls who are in school today. And the plan, when it has been proved, holds promise of spreading to other counties in Arkansas and doubtless to other states of the union. Mississippi County and Arkansas do not stand alone iii the need for militant effort to preserve the nation's democracy. It will be far easier to preserve freedom, than it will be lo regain it after it suffers the reverses that arc all to common today in the democracies of countries of Europe. BLYTHEVTLLE (AKK.) COURIER NEWS Something New Has Been Added " . WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 1948 Maybe Puerto Ricans ShouldT \ Wear the Green, History Says By Harman W. Nichols THE DOCTOR SAYS By ed»ln P. Jwdin. M.

Part of lh ™»°' ; oeallv munnur sofh "k - ' . lw kind Idea tor Devaluation of Nickels'and Dimes Fails VIEWS OF OTHERS Greece: Military'Phase Americans may ns well face It in its slarkcst terms. The Greek problem has for the moment fihcd most of its humanitarian and economic overtones. It is a military business. That much can be rend from the President's second report on aid to Greece and Turkey. President Trumnn announces that he will ask for more money to help the Greek armies to fight the guerrillas. Emphasis on economic reconstruction will come Inter. Doubtless Ihe President's statement reflects advice from Dwight p. Griswolrt. head of the American aid mission in Greece. Mr. Griswold'a experience in Greece cat: be illustrated by a simple sequence: It might cost a million dollars to build a bridge In Greece, and cost the guerrillas only ten dollars to blow It up. While this sort of threat to Greek reconstruction exists, reconstruction obviously is a cart- before-thc-horse approach to Greek problems. Restoration or order is a first essential. Until that is accomplished, Greek guerrillas can make economic crises In a number of ways. For example, by raids on the countryside they have already set hundreds of thousands of refugees In motion toward cities which, though protected by Government forces, still are not economically enmpperi to give these untorinnates proper care. Moreover, the gnerrila movement, while serving the interests of extreme Greek dissidents, serves also the Interests ot foreign countries. Thcae covet Greek territory or ami at domination, Aid from them Is a key to guerrilla activity. To he stive, the present Government of Greece leaves much to be desired fro,,, a liberal point of view. Yet it has the co-operation of many Greek liberals for the time being, and it, is on that same provisional basis that the American aid should go forward. Having recognized that the United Slates must first of all help the Greeks to win an armed struggle against the guerrillas, Americans also recognize that they meanwhile arc acquiring a vast social responsibility in Greece. This they will later have to help Greck , ibcra]s , 0 a,^,,,^,, -CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. Hills. president.
