Dr. Crane Beauty and Idealism Should Mark Funeral CASfi IM28: Luke L, 34, wanted to eliminate flowers from funerals and save money Just by a "disposal service." *t>r. Crafte," he added, "saffitttoes people dpftd hundrids of dolafs on flowers, isn't that a terrible waste of rnoney?" Well, they spend huadteds of thousands of dollars, too, ofi elabw- ate church buildings when a circus tent would house the crowd of a cheap discarded Senior Forum By THOMAS COLLINS Question: "My husband Is a professional man and is 68. His work Is difficult and he wants to retire. But our total retirement income, Including some stocks, would be Only $205 a month. Our home, which is paid for, is worth $19,000, and the taxes are $425 a year. "Our sharpest figuring shows that if we live on here, and my husband retires, the $205 a month will fall about $100 short of Our budget Do you have any suggestions?" -Mrs. C. R. B. Answer: You're living pretty high if $205 won't do, what with a paid-for house. You don't need a $19,000 house to retire in, and at your husband's age it could be a burden. Why don't you lease it out for a year, while your husband tapers off on his work, and rent an apartment or house nearby. In this way you will learn whether you can be happy without your home, and whether you can adjust to a new neighborhood. A new neighborhood is a tough adjustment for most people past 60, because neighbors just don't come around to call and be friends as you think they should. Still, it's worth a try provided you leave the way clear to reclaim your old home. If you got $16,500 net of your $19,000 home (which is about par) you could buy a retirement cottage for $10,000, Invest the remaining $6,500,31 4 per cent for about $22 a month more income.

So fliis matter of cost te based on the theory of relativity. Jesus was anointed before his death with costly ointment. But his frugal Aposties chided the woman, saying she should have sold that ointment and given the money to the poor. JESUS approved of her act, saying it would be favorably mentioned till the end of time. "The poor ye have with you always," Jesus said. So Jesus realized the grave threat to spiritual Idealism when we let erosion of the human soul take place. Death is our supreme graduation ceremony from this classroom called Earth. And we are created in God's own image, so the Bible tells us. As a result, dignity and beauty and idealism should attend our "graduation," which is what the funeral amounts to. If economy were the only aim at a funeral, then we might as well imitate Hitler's cheap "disposal service" whereby he had bulldozers open up wide trenches so the dead bodies could be dumped therein. That would certainly be the cheapest method of eliminating flowers and beautiful caskets, music and spiritual inspiration. But Hitler's method promotes erosion of the soul. And that type of erosion is even more disastrous than erosion of our fertile topsoil. Moreover, flowers buoy the spirit of the bereaved arid add inspiration. Lowell Teacher Has Scholarship Clyde E.

Avondale Refuses to Pay Lieu Tax By PETER MARlNOVtCH AVONDALE -*• The Avondale City Council has unanimously denied a request by Agua Pria Union High School for funds to educate 20 students. Th« request, brought before the council Monday by L. M. Acevedo, city manager, asked that the City of Avondale make a lieu tax payment of $12,701.98. The amount was based on tiie city's Circle Housing Project assessed valuation of $90,240, retroactive to 1957. Avondale does not have a city property tax and the housing project is exempt from school taxes because it Is municipal property. A letter written to the council- by the school superintendent, Lester Kelley, pointed out that 20 students living in the project are attending the high school. Avondale, however, does not contribute its fair share toward educating tfiese students, Kelley said. Kelley contended that Avondale is morally obligated to pay the amount, sharing the burden witfi Goodyear and Lltchfield Park residents. Kelley said when the new school was built, Avondale quickly annexed the property without the knowledge of the high school board. Mayor L. R. Turner said the annexation was performed quickly to keep Goodyear from making the same move, thereby closing off any further growth of Avondale to the north. "It would set a bad precedent for us to make a token payment because there are many other cities and towns in Arizona that are in the same situation," Turner said. Kelley said his School was assessed $4,560 for street improvements by the City of Avondale and that the school's water and MOTHER'S DAY SPECIAL 1 PPPP BEAUTIFUL ORCHID While They Last, for each load of DRY CLEANING • Bring your neighbor and SAVE $1.00 (A $4.00 VALUE FOR $3.00) GOOD WED., MAY 8th TO SAT., MAY 11 th NORGE CLEANING VILLAGE 3419 W.

"Students at the school are mostly from Avondale, yet Goodyear and Litchfield Park are the only ones that pay," Kelley said. Mayor Turner said that due to the housing project's income, the street improvement program had a small per foot assessment and the water and sewage department do not operate at a profit.
