State Legislator Speaks on Women and Public Affairs Suited to Business and Professional Women's Week was the ably given address, "Women and Public Affairs," by Mrs. Pauline B. Rinaker, stale representative from the 38th district, when she spoke lo guests nnd members of Business and Professional Womn's Club last evening at the Hotel Custer. The dinner meeting was a special event during Business and Professional Wom.pi's Week which was proclaimed fi:om Oct. 11 lo Oct. 17. "Everyone is in favor of economy until the platform touches their own interest," stated Mrs. Kinaker after she had explained something about the vast number of bills and resolutions which are a pari of the slate legislative program. She stressed the part women could play in stale and national affairs simply by writing representatives and being aware of the vital problems in government at all levels. Pointing out that 10 per cent of all the bills proposed were devoted to schools, thus making it a number one problem facing the legislature, she said, "A good school is entirely dependent on teachers and textbook material." Mrs. Rinaker further stated after a discussion of various bills on whom employers should hire and what I hey should pay, "It is not fair by law lo compel employers to hire a certain group or to set a minimum wage" From the practical things that had or had not been accomplished, Mrs. Rinaker turned to her dream, rather an explanation of a dream which she has, of more women entering politics and through the efforts of many it would become a recognized and admired profession. In conclusion Mrs. Rinaker brought out the vital part the ballot plays in our lives. She urged Circle Members Take Part, in Devotions Bible verses were read by members of Circle Three, the Davis- Taylcr Circle, of First Lutheran Church as each participated in the devotional service Tuesday after noon.

The consensus of opinion, of those present, as to the apparent apathy of people to the United Nations, was thought to be due to misconception of its functions and It was brought out that homework as in the United States Whether or not to study hard was more of an individual propositidh than it is here. Michiko was a member of the Y.W.C.A. in Tokyo and was president of the students' association in her high school. Michiko finds Knox students very kind and friendly, and thinks they are very happy compared to Japanese students. Japanese students, according to Michiko, read widely and spend a great deal of time thinking and talking about political conditions and the future of Japan. ! Speaks English Since she studied the language in high school and had private lessons during the summer, Michiko! speaks English very well although she still has some difficulty with certain words. She is studying English, mathematics and Greek this year. Her roommate at Whiting Hall is Janet Ritchuck, a freshman from Libertyville. Michiko is not homesick so far. She hears from her friends in Japan every day and receives several Japanese newspapers and magazines each week. From these she learns news of the world situation, since reading English is still a slow process for her and she finds her time well taken up with class studies. Because she likes Galesburg and Knox so well, Michiko hopes to spend the next four years here. She has two brothers and a sister in Japan, and hopes that her younger brother, who is in his first year of high school, will also come to Knox. Her sister is in the sixth grade and her older brother is a E's of Safety Stressed by Sgt. Thomas for PTA Sergeant Richard Thomas of the Galesburg Police Department spoke to the Bateman Parent- Teacher Association on "Safety Precautions" at the Thursday afternoon meeting which also honored the patrol boys.

The United States is dependent on foreign countries for many raw materials vital to war production, for air-bases, for allies to keep the balance of power against the Soviet Union and its satellites.
