P«g« A-2-tNDEPENDENT tlldk CUL, Tferv. ttrt . H» --L.A.C. SAYS: · School Election PEOPLE IN THE NEWS V- John L. Lewis Quits Goal-Policy Post r£ The biggest tax rate paid ty California communi- ', jties is the school tax More individuals are attending I« our schools than there are working in all our factories. I»The future of our state and nation is dependent upon I'jKtal is taught and the atmosphere that prevails in lioar schools. But the biggest group of delinquents we tjhave is the parents and other so-called good citizens t* who do not vote at school elections. :». * * * I; The Long Beach School District election wfll be I; held Friday. Three of the five seats on the Board of ·; Education are to be filled. The people elected will ·I direct policies for the local school system. It is therefore important for the parents and other voters to |: decide as to whether or not they approve of the way ·Jour local system has operated. ';· This writer will endorse and vote for the three J'incumbents. Namely: Sigworth, Jacobs and Sullivan. ;~He does so because he believes them to be sound and Z dedicated individuals who give untiringly of their time. I If we do not reward such efforts and dedication by a 1 vote of confidence, we do not encourage the kind of I people we like to have hold such offices. It has long T been our policy to endorse incumbents--unless there I is some good reason for not doing so. ; a * ', The other seven candidates deserve the apprecia- J'tion of all our citizens. They may be as qualified in I every way as are the incumbents. Their willingness to I jtand for office in an election is evidence that we have tjnany good citizens ready to accept responsibility. It · Is one of the most refreshing examples of good citizen-Ship we experience. But only three seats on the board -'are to be filled, so there must be seven candidates -disappointed. But it is hoped they will be available at ""some future date when a vacancy occurs. :-t ; It is depressing to hear estimates that not over. iIO percent of the registered voters wfll cast their votes ^"tomorrow. Those who fail to do so will have no reason to be critical of our school board or its members. Our *; schools are our greatest examples of democracy in *; action. But a doubt is cast on its working when 90 -" percent of the people eligible to vote refuse to do so. !; * * * Once again the point is raised as to why we do not '; combine this April 5 school election with the May 14 -* city primary election. There would be problems, since ** some areas of the district would not be holding pri- ·1 mary elections on that date. But since Long Beach !· represents over three-fourths of all the district popula- I* tion--this saving could be accomplished to a large «· degree. And above an, it would insure a much larger i; voter turnout '·'. During the past year the Rafferty-Richardson ·; election campaign stirred considerable controversy. -: The local board took no part in the campaign or in -: any of the partisan fights that ensued. It has conducted *; itself as a local school board should in looking out for *; the interests of the local district It was a strong sup*: porter of Superintendent Douglas Newcomb and ap- ·1 pointed a capable successor on the retirement of -: Newcomb. It is for these reasons this writer wfll sup- ·Iport the three incumbents: Sigworth, Jacobs and ;t Sullivan.--LA.C -* IlA.C'l calumn. ly U A.

Po-l 0 ^ *· wl Dtcr " N °" Wirt Smrlen' The nation got a grim warning Wednesday from retired labor union leader John L. Lewis that unless jobs are forthcoming for the nation's unemployed they will rise up eventually in a violent explosion. Lewis. 83. speaking at a luncheon given by leading industrialists in his honor in Washington. D.C, noted that Britain, which has a less severe idleness problem, already has experienced protest marches ca Parliament. The occasion was Lewis's resignation as chairman of the National Coal Policy Conference, Inc, an organization made up of the Independent M i n e Workers Union, coal producers, railroads and other coal-associated enterprises. Lewis founded the association. In a voice strong and clear despite his years, Lewis said, "I ara astonished at the patience" of this country's five million idle workers. He added that the longer jobs are denied thera "the more violent will be their explosion when they reach the limit of their endurance." Lewis is former president of the United Mine Workers.
