The Standard's Editorial Policy: Unswerving support of the principles of democracy; in federal, state and communiJy government; Preservation, and advancement of the opportunities for pursuit of private enterprise in California and the Redwood Empire; Unbiased reporting of the 7ieuis; Back To School Thousands of Humboldt County youngsters from kindergarten through senior high have finished their first day of school for the 1966-67 year. They join millions of other Californians who have gone "back to school." This is a fitting time to reflect on some of the awesome forces at work in the state's schools. According to recent reports from the State ^ Department of Education, one-quarter of California's 19 million population will be in public schools this fall, including 5.4 million pupils and 170,000 teachers. Junior college enrollment will be 300,000, up 27,000 or nine per cent over last year. Full time enrollment in our state college system will rise more than seven per cent to a total of 113,000. University of California campuses will have an increase of 10,000 students to a total of more than 88,000, up 11.6 per cent. Add to these figures the thousands of students in private schools and colleges, and California education looms as a job for a'census bureau, let alone work for teachers. California's school enrollment increase alone this year will exceed the total number of students in each ' of the following states: New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, Delaware, North Dakota, South Dakota, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Alaska and Hawaii. And things will get even more crowded. Reports predict that our public schools will increase their enrollment by 1.7 million pupils in the next 15 years. That would be more than the total enrollment today in 44 of the 50 states. School libraries need more than 12 million books more than they have today. During the next 10 years, California will need at least 215,000 new teachers for its elementary and secondary schools just to continue current class sizes, which in many districts are already too large. Local property taxes still carry most of the load for local school support. The state government (taxpayer) contributes 38.5 per cent of the total cost of operating elementary and secondary schools. Because of enrollment increases, it costs California some $50 million more each year in state funds just to maintain the same quality public school program as in the previous years. The cost of upgrading education from our present position of "just standing still" would boost the costs even more. Assemblyman Frank P. Belotti says that all these facts and figures indicate, among other things, that perhaps our whole tax structure will have to be overhauled and that some present state programs will have to be reduced or eliminated to free funds for educational purposes. Better methods of teaching children en masse may have to be found. And colleges will have to train vastly more teachers. Major steps will have to be taken all along the line, by the legislature, local government, and the educational system. It's a time for constructive action chaos.

Even U.S. Has a Limit Long kicked around the conference table by congressmen arid around the dinner table by John Q. Public is the mystery known as foreign aid. I/ike the weather, foreign aid is talked about a lot, but generally left alone. For years, men have discussed, hopqd and sometimes demanded that foreign aid be abandoned or at least reduced. No such luck. The amount of aid shipped to foreign countries has continued to increase and, in too many instances, no tangible and lasting results have followed. Perhaps now, with the pressing need for tightening, of the government belt, is the time for a new attack. ' There is hardly any argument against the fine principle set forth in the foreign aid program. The U. S. is a prosperous nation and is willing to lend a helping hand to a needy neighbor. But' handouts without direction and control are senseless. The program in each country should be administered by a U. S. citizen thoroughly versed in that nation's specific economic p r o b l e m s . These jobs should not be political plums tossed to good party boys as in some past cases. In requesting funds, a country should be required to submit a workable plan with a definite goal and a timetable. It then would be the responsibility of the U. S. administrator working with representatives of the country to see that the plan is carried out to its completion and funds are not siphoned off along the way. Too good to be true, you say? Not necessarily. Remember, this is an election year. Force Not Always Brutal No law-abiding citizen condones unnecessary brutality on the part of police. Nor does any law-abiding citizen condone brutality on the part of the public against police. Two or three generations ago, when rubber hoses were not unknown in the interrogation rooms of some police departments, some police officers undoubtedly went too far in their zeal to pry out information in a criminal investigation. Those days are long gone, however, and the cry, "Police Brutality!" seldom stands up. Monday's report on investigations of charges within Chicago's police department pretty much points up what has been happening across the country. In 687 complaint cases, 29 were found valid and the police officers punished. Too often a wrongdoer who has fallen into the hands of police, or is attempting not to, charges "brutality" when the policeman is compelled to use force to make his arrest. The suspect, sometimes with confederates, kicks, gouges, punches the officer and then acts surprised when the officer clouts him back in order to subdue him. No policeman worth his salt is going to let a suspect go simply because the suspect gives him a rough time. If the suspect wants to be arrested peaceably he must act accordingly. The arrest must be made. If the suspect is brutal, the arrest will be accordingly. Then it is a case of necessary force, and not brutality. WASHINGTON -- When I ex- aressed surprise that Cook Coun- y Sheriff Dick Ogilvie should lave arrested our native Hitler, George Lincoln Rockwell, mere- y for showing up in Chicago, 1 was set straight by a good, decent liberal of my acquaint- nce. "Oil," was the retort, "Rockwell's a Nazi." This cleared things up, all right. In my old - fashioned, Jeffersonian ignorance, 1 h a d always believed that the Constitution granted freedom of ipcech and opinion and movement to all Americans. Bui in this era of the New Freedom, and police protection for civil rights goon squads, those guarantees apparently do not apply to non-liberals such as the leader of the American Nazi Party. Our politicians have paraphrased Voltaire to read that they'll defend the right of an individual o say something so long as he agrees with them. ;roups indicated he would be 'easiest to convince." T h u s does the New Freedom re- vard its friends. Cannon has said he'd rather vork within the organization to change its policies than quit al- ogelher, a weasel - worded stand If ever I heard one. In any sane atmosphere, his answer should be that he has a icrfecl right to belong to the Eagles even If they spend every Tuesday night sticking pins in- o images of Martin L u t h e r ing. I am not a club man, but recognize that one of a club's unctions is to keep c e r t a i n people out, and I go along with Iroucho Marx who once refused membership in a country country club on the grounds he tiad no use for an outfit "that would take in people like me.' MAKING A MARTYR Good old Doc Gibson put i t another way many years ago when I vas blackballed by my home- own Rotary Club for criliciz- ng the Cuperinlendent of Schools, a creature of the local n d u s t r i a 1 Establishment. 'Hell," said Doc, "you wouldn't want to associate with a bunch like that." But, my ego disgresses. Rockwell's arrest is of far m o r e significance than the temporary inconvenience visited to a fanatic demagog whose ideology is a foul taste in tbe c o u n t r y's mouth. There are nuts on both sides of the current quarrel, and Ogilvie has given the Rockwell nuts an excuse to crown him with martyrdom. Just such a crown, bestowed in a Munich hoosegow, launched Adolf Hitler on his bloody career.

Women's View Buying Home Emotional Assurance By GAY PAULEY UPI Women's Editor NEW YORK (UPI)--A house s more than four walls and a oof over Ihe head. H is re- real, safety, security, almost ike a member of the family. So says Dr. Ernest Ditcher, a motivation expert, who finds deeper meanings in home purchase than the fact the house las lots of closet space and n Ihe right neighborhood. "Buying a home is like selecting an additional family mem ber," said Ditcher, who beads Ihe Institute for Molivational Research, Inc., at Crolon-On The-Hudson, N.Y. "People have a desire for permanence," said Ditcher "When people move into a house, it is often with a sigh o relief and a feeling of, "This is it. Here we are going to slay!' "If the builder himself coulc meet this desire with slronj guarantees, it would be proof o his real understanding of th buyer's hidden motivations. 1 would give the buyer the emo tional assurance he wants." PICKING ON A FRIEND Incidentally, that Wauwatosa uproar carried an ironic warning for some of the white supporters of civil rights action.

To a woman, the house is an xtension of herself. "If her role s one of a mother, the home s a super-mother," said Ditch- r. Women are interested in torage and closet space--"It's treasure chest." The pantry, in turn, suggests uture protection from scarcity. To Ditcher, (be builder who feeling of permanence lives a family a ;uarantee a n d 'will have a definite edge over competitors. We are rationally upset if the roof leaks in a wme much more than is warranted by the physical fault il- self. It suddenly gives the feeing of insecurity, lack of permanence." Ditcher made his remarks for benefit of the Weyerhaeuser By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) -I went out to Ihe national zoo this week to commiserate with a politician who claimed he had been "aardvarked." For the benefit of anyone who may not be familiar with the ancient but not altogether honorable practice of aardvark- ing, I shall attempt to explain how it works. There are two things to bear in mind: 1. Because of its double vowel beginning, aardvark is always one of the first words in a dictionary. 2. A Candidate for elective office deems it an advantage to lave his name at or near the op of the ballot. Now suppose there are places 'or five names in each column and there are five candidates whose names are Carson Dawson, Grayson, Hodgson am Tyson. Further suppose that Carson and Tyson are the leading candidates. If listed alphabet! cally, Carson will be at tbe top of the column and Tyson at thi bottom. So, a few hours before thi filing deadline, Tyson persuade; his friend Arson to enler thi race. This knocks Carson out o the top of the first column anc aardvarked.

Ditcher said unexpected factors often play an important role "For example, we discovered that doorknobs are more important than we had assumed. As in a car where the heavy sound of the door may indicate quality, so the heaviness and solidly of the doorknobs in a house convey a similar impression." The scent of a house also may be a factor in selection. Said Ditcher, "A new house smells in a very special way. People resent the odor of the previous family in buying an older home. "Although little has been done about it, one could conceive of the possibility of planfully introducing special odors and aromas . . ."

By VERNON SCOTT DPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPI) -Elvis 3 resley pushed the black : orelock off his forehead, put lis arm around his leading lady and director Norman Taurog shouted "action!" The scene was the deck of a rusty freighter mockup on MGM sound stage No. 12. Above the young lovers the script called for actors Norman Hossington and Chips Rafferty to clamber out of a lifeboat and look down on the scene ol young love, reading lines all the while. The lines complete, Elvis was supposed to break into song. On the first take a telephone rang on the set, ruining the scene. "I don't believe it," cried Taurog, slapping the palm ol his hand atop his bald head. "Let's try it again," he called. On the next attempt the wim machine came on loo strong blowing Presley's hair in the manner of a peacock's tai ealhers. Orders Fan Slopped "Kill the fan," Taurog yelled, lis usually gentle nature uffled. "For Gaw's sake. We can't havve Elvis' hair standing on end." Then it was time for the makeup men to rush in and daub powder on Anette Day, be girl in Presley's arms, while a hairdresser placated heir cigars still emitting illlows of smoke. "We've got to gel the cue right on that song for Elvs," said Taurog. "H slill isn't right." The pre-recorded playback was adjusted time and again while Elvis missed his cues. "My fault," the singer said. 'H comes on a little too quickly tor me." "Don't worry," Taurog said. "We'll get it right if it takes all day." Suddenly an assistant director remembered Rossington and Rafferty under the lifeboat ^arpoulin. "Hey, Chips and Norm, you might as well come out of there." The actors emerged in a cloud of smoke, choking and coughing. This brought a laugh from cast and crew while Taurog shook his head in wonderment at r the troubles that beset a director. The name of the picture, suitably enough, is "Double Trouble." the singer's wayward locks. "Okay, once more," Taurog said hopefully. The special process screen flickered on with a background of the tanker in full color. Meanwhile a grip rocked the camera with a rope to give the effect of a tanker in motion The cameramen looked a little green around the gills. This time Rossington and Rafferfy, cigars clamped be tween their teeth, made it ou of the lifeboat without mishap but Rafferty blew his lines am shouted an obscenity. Presley broke up, laughing "Sorry about that," Rafferty told Taurog. "We'll gel it rlgh this lime."
