National Library Week Work Re Late Hem By RU-FLO HARPER LEE (Fourth In a Series) It was in my second year o high 3 -hool that the Eureka Li brary became a real part of nrj life. Henry Kendall, a raw-bonec Hoosier, who had arrived her by way of Alabama, where h was both a teacher and attorney was the librariau and he hirec me to work after school, Satur days and in the summer vaca tions. I checked out books and pheck ed them in and put them bad on the shelves. I read and reap and read. History, poetry, politics /iction, biography and autobiog raphy. As I look back now, I realize Mr. Kendall was a man beyond his times. He had no race preju dice. He had taught In a Negro Teacher's College and his firs teaching in Humboldt was at the Indian School at Hoopa. But I think it was in his atti tude toward the problem of cen sorship that Air. Kendall showcc best the kind of man he was. Well do I remember one eve ning, however, when a prominenl local minister came in with fire in his eye, slammed, a book on the desk in front of me and demanded Mr. Kendal. For an hour then, as I checked books in anc out the minister went on and on insisting that such a book should not even be published, much less put into a public library to corrupt the minds of the young. Mr. Kendall listened politely, his agitation shown only in the way he kepi tapping one foot. When the clergyman slowed down to take a breath Mr. Kendall remarked gently that he could not allow the minister to act as censor and riionnel'^l-;^: KV'IO"-,TY v--^eurckn TONIGHT 5:00-- Ranger Mark. 5:3ft-Mattle's Funnies 6:W-- The News by £ Wilh Jack Mortimer. 4:15-- Hunlley-Brlnkley Report. *: 30-- Alfred Hitchcock Presents. 8:30-- The Flintstones. -. 9:00--77 Sunset Strip. 10:00-- Targer Corrupten. 11-00-- llth Hour News. 11:15-- Big Week-End Movie-"Tomorrow Is Another Day" -Ruth Roman, Steve Cochran.

Today, the Eureka City Library which started out with some 500 volumes has more than 45,000 volumes. It is yours -- use i and look at the wonderful worlt of the past, the present and -the 'uture. Today the; C o u n t y Library which in my day was housed in what had been a private home now occupies, along with the county school library a large area in he new county court house. The theme chosen for Nationa Public Library Week this year is "Read - And Watch the World Grow." But it doesn't quite satisfy me. Watching doesn't seem enough. I think we should participate.

I refer to the woman who was fixing sandwiches in the kitchen for her young nephew and his 1 card-playing buddies. Auntie almost swallowed her dentures when she heard these - guys talking about girls in a way that no gentleman ever talks about a lady. The big mouths were reciting names and addresses, r telephone numbers and dimensions like crazy. ' You shook your verbal finger and warned "See, girls-- I tolc you so! Behave yourself because men have big mouths and they always tell!" I work around women constantly-- about 25 of them. I listen to them chattering away like magpies, 8 hours aday. No group ol males can be pettier, more malicious, or more destructive than a bunch of females. Women classify men NOT according to their moral standards, but according to how much dough they'll spend. These women read love letters aloud and sometimes they laugh hilariously. No tender phrase is too sacred to be ridiculed. Keeping a confidence is not a matter of sex-- it's a matter of integrity. And it rests with the individual. What do you say to THIS, Ann Landers?-OLD DODO Dear Dodo: I say you're right. And having said THAT, there's nothing more to say. ·fr ·£ -fr Dear Ann Landers: What is your opinion of a high school that dictates to kids what size pants to wear and what to do with their shirts? One kid was sent home because the principal decided his jeans were two sizes too small. Another guy was told to put his shirt collar down flat instead of standing it up the way he likes it. My boy friend was stopped in the hall yesterday by a teacher who ordered him to put his shirt-lails inside his trousers and to button up his shirt. This crummy school is getting more like Russia every day. I thought America was supposed to be a free country. Please answer in the paper IF you are on OUR SIDE. If not, skip i t -- LIKE IN REFORM SCHOOL Dear Like: Since this is a free country I decided to answer in the paper even though I am not on your side. It is the parents who SHOULD see to it that their kids go to school dressed decently. When the parents fail to meet their responsibility--the school must accept it. Skin-tight jeans worn low on the hips, stand-up shirt collars, shirt-tails out, and exposed chests are all trade-marks of smalltime hoods. Since public schools are paid for by all the taxpayers, the majority of kids who are self-respecting and decent should not have their school's reputation ruined by a few sloppy punks who have crummy taste. Dear Ann: I am writing this for my daughter who is in her room crying. She is to be married in July. The groom-to-be has a little sister 4 years old. She was an "unexpected dividend" and her parents dote on her. The child's mother wants her to be a flower girl in the wedding. My daughter does not want a flower girl. She says she has attended too many weddings which were spoiled by small children who became confused, or frightened, or did something amusing, and turned the wedding into a circus. Advice, please.-- M. 0. T. B. Dear M. O. T. B.: The bride INVITES those whom she wishes to participate in the wedding ceremony. If she doesn't want a flower girl she should not be pressured into having one. T?T £ £ Does almost everyone have a good time but you? If so, send for ANN LANDERS' booklet, "How To Be Well-Liked," enclosing with your request 20c in coin and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope. Ann Landers will be glad io help you with your problems. Send them to her in care of this newspaper enclosing a stamped, self- addressed envelope. Union Lee Steel Hik( DETROIT (UPD-Walter Reu er, president of the United Au Workers union, joined Presiden Kennedy Thursday night in cri cizing the action of the U.S. Stee Corp. in raising prices $6 a to Reuther, in a letter to the Pres dent, termed the steel firm's a ion a "sneak attack on pri stability-- the economic Pearl Ha bor." He called the price hike 'reckless and shameful" action b "a tiny handful of executives." The UAW leader praised 11 President for his "forthrig and vigorous defense of the pu ic interest."

(UPI) Chief Justice Earl Warren r ceived an honorary doctor o aws degree Wednesday night a Colgate University convocatio marking the 100th anniversary o the birth of one of his predece sors. Charles Evans Hughes. Warren said Hughes' opinio foreshadowed present findings the nation's highest court concer ing the rights of all men to equa treatment. Hughes "was partic lariy concerned with civil righ and equal protection of the la :or all races," Warren said. He said Hughes "took each ca as he saw it under the law am the Constitution, and he decided i without consideration of the lab . .commentators might pin o lim." Hughes, he added, con not be classified as either "a li eral or a conservative." CARPET OF THE MONTH *der Joins 2 Criticism dent," Reuther said, "that you lave the full support oE the American people behind your efforts to defend this nation" against the actions of the U.S. Steel Corp. Reuther said the firm's action, "shocking though it was, is merely a symptom of a fundamental troblem that the nation cannot afford to continue to ignore." The problem, Reuther said, was be executives whom the Presi- ent described as men whose pursuit of private power and profit exceeds their sense of public responsibility and who act with utter contempt for the interests of 185 million Americans. Reuther proposed procedures which would have price leaders n major industries give advance notice of proposed price increases and be required to produce all tertinent facts and records at a mblic hearing before they could le made effective. The proposal would not impose either price or wage controls, he said. Under such a plan, if a corporation felt that the demands of the union would require a price increase, then the union would be required to defend its demands, le said.
