HISTORIAN DRPT OF TOWA DBS MQINES IA 50319 Mrs. William Jacobstn Mrs. Woyn* Jennings MM. Tom Low Mrs. Ed Mo/m/n Mr*. Virgil T*r»llllg*t VOLUME 107 NO. 28 HUMBOLDT, IOWA, SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 1967 10 CENTS Humboldt business men stressed distributive education importance Merland Cody, a Humboldt grocer, and Al Thompson, manager of Anthony's In Humboldt, were the guest speakers at a regional Distributive Education and Office Education meeting held at Johnny's Steak Harbor In Humboldt Tuesday, January 17. They combined to give the in- - stnictors of the region an idea how the program functions in their particular field and how It might be possible to.improve the program Both men used stories to exemplify their positions. Mr. Thompson spoke on how to Improve the cooperation between the school system and the retailer, noting that it would be difficult to do so in Humboldt although that may not be the case In other areas. He Introduced a mythical female that everyone has mot at one time or another, one who Is a rabble rouse rand creates havoc frequently, Miss Understanding. "If the distributive education students can act as liaison between the school and the businesses of a town, then there will bo less understanding." Mr. Cody stressed his position by asking the group to picture two ice fishing huts on a lake, one containing a grocer and the other an educator, both trying to catch the fish below, vho, as students, are trying to select the biggest and best bait available, "I have always felt that these students need to learn ambition, to set a goal, and to have pride In themselves and In their work, "Seventy-five percent of t" e people In the United States make their living by selling. These people are taught subjects, but not hov to sell it. They have to learn how to sell after they get out of school. "More ambitious students with a goal getting experience In economics and merchandising will mean more and better selling, and if this can be done, the little fish will be right with either line he decides to take," Among the points brought up during the meeting were that most students have no concept of the outside world, but consider themselves adults as soon as they get their diplomas even though they may be lacking in experience: that the distributive education program which allows students to hold part time jobs helps the individual to gain valuable experience; and that more desire and initiative is needed since some students will do what they are told to do just fine, but will not look tor something else to do once they finish the first job. The meeting vas broken into three one-hour sessions with the first devoted to a presentation by two men from Advances Systems of Waterloo, lova, whome i program about the use of the overhead projector.
