Margaret spent her vaca tion last year traveling in Eur- «pe. In fact, she spent almosl all of last year in Europe. And in August, she will return for another year there. Margaret teaches in a school for dependents of military personnel stationed at Tou Ros- ieres, AFB, Nancy, France. She's home now, visiting her mother, Mrs. Roy Nelson. Mrs Nelson is very enthusiastic about Margaret's job. She had been urging Margarel for over a year to apply for the job. Finally, Margaret did apply with the Employment Security Office in Little Rock. She went to France in August of last year. * * * After she returns to Tou Ro- sieres in August, Margaret will teach there until April 1, 1967. Then she will be sent to another base, somewhere in the European theater, which includes countries in Europe and North Africa. It's unusual for teachers to be transferred during the school year, but by April 1, 1967, all teachers teaching on military bases in France will be transferred outside France. That's the date Charles De Gaulle has set for all American military bases in France to close. Teachers will be among the last to leave, so that school may continue as long as there are children to attend. "I'll hate to leave France," Margaret said, "especially Tou Rbsieres. It's very well located for travel. "We're only a few hours, by train, from Paris and close to Italy and Switzerland. But I'm sure I'll like my new assignment and getting to live someplace else in Europe." • * * * ;-...- •'"". t Comparing her present job with the one she had at Benton, fee Henderson State Teachers graduate says: "It's just like working in the States, except you have the added benefit of being able to NEWS BRIEFS LINCOLN, Neb.

It now lines up the easy money army against the tight money forces in both the administration and the Congress, the housing and lumber industries against the big banks, and to a degree the financial institutions against the federal government's fiscal authorities. As if all this wasn't scrambled enough, the interest rate war in the United States has some international repercussions. The U.S. dollar and the English pound sterling are linked to a large degree as international HIGH FASHION—In the highlands of Bolivia, tradi- ditional costumes linger on. This Indian shepherdess holding a lamb wears the colorful poncho and hat which are essential garb for those who tend the flocks of sheep, llama and alpica in the mountains. trade settlement currencies And rising interest rates declared Thursday in London will have some effect on the tight money market in the United States. At home the quarrel between the financial institutions and the government is brought to a head by Treasury Secretary Henry H. Fowler's suggestion that the Congress check the growing interest rate war between the banks and the savings and loans associations. The quarrel is largely this: the banks say that the high interest rates fostered by the monetary authorities (primarily the Federal Reserve Board) has been designed to curb inflation and keep an exuberant business joom from becoming a runaway one.' * * * But the banks charge that the monetary authorities are being made to carry all the load and he fiscal authorities none of it. Phe fiscal measures to control nflation would include either cutting government spending or raising federal taxes, or both. Until now; the; interest rate war has been between 1 the commercial banks on the one hand (especially the big ones in the major financial centers) and the mutual savings banks and the savings and loan associations on the other. Step by step they have been raising the amounts of interest or dividends they will pay. The object: to lure savers into entrusting money to this or the other type of institution. The reason: the growing demand for loans of all kinds has left the banks short of lendable funds. And as savings were lured to the banks by higher interest rates, or into the bond market by higher yields, savings and loans associations have become short of funds to meet the demand for mortgages or to lend to the construction industry while it is building new houses. This mortgage fund shortage is one of the reasons home building has declined. And the drop in building activity is now hurting the lumber industry and others that supply the builders. uattons and environments. * * * French is taught in the schools, by French - speaking teachers, starting with the first grade. So the children get basic training in a foreign language. Except for the French teacher, all teachers are American. They live on the base. . At Tou Rosieres, 25 teachers teach about 700 students in grades 1-6. Junior and seniors high students go to an Army base, not far away for school. During vacations, travel agencies plan tours for the teachers or t o u r s are m a d e available through base service clubs, o: groups can strike out through Europe on their own.

(AP) A Harvard theologian, Dr. Harvey Cox, says the 20th century is "an age of no religion at all." "All supernatural myths anc sacred symbols" have been broken, he says, and man has been left alone "with the world on his hands." For Cox, this is an age of secularism, and in his book, "The Secular City," he offers "a celebration of its liberties." This is an age, said Cox in an interview, in which man can free himself from his religious prejudices "to turn his attention away from worlds beyond and toward this world and this time. .... and step into God's permanent revolution in history." "The mission of the church," lie says, "is to be involved in [he renewal of the world." Cox, 37, associate professor of jhurch and society at Harvard, has been placed among the "God Is Dead" theologians in gome recent newspaper and magazine articles. God is not dead, he says, "and God does make a difference in I the way men live." Cox contends, however, Biat God has changed his way of dealing with man. Cox says God has withdrawn from the world, leaving its affairs to man. "Man must now assume the responsibility for his world," he says. "He can no longer shove it off on some religious power. "The question is: What is the reality of God? What is his intention in human affairs? How is man to bear witness to God?" Cox uses the traditional Protestant concept of witness—the Christian giving visible evidence of his belief. But for Cox the traditional witness of preaching and churchgoing is no longer enough. He sees this as an age of social upheaval, and he says the Christian must offer witness "whever he sees injustice in the world." He urges Christians to break away from the established churches into "a kind «f ascetic disaffiliatlon" so that they may do "God's work In the present social revolution." What occurred wlwrt?

"It's a shame, in a country as progressive as ours, that we've been so backward about mental retardation." Dr. Benjamin Spock At any time, mental retardation could happen in your family—a good reason why you should share Dr. Spock's concern about this neglected health problem. Right now, there are six million children and adults in our country whose minds are retarded. This year, 126,000 babies will be born who will become mentally retarded. Yet, if all that is known about the prevention of mental retardation were applied, mental retardation could be cut in half. Here, then, are five things you can do to help prevent this affliction and give most of the retarded a chance to live normally and usefully. 1. If you expect a baby, stay under the care of a doctor or a clinic. Urge all expectant mothers to do so. 2. Visit local schools. Urge them to provide special teachers and special classes to identify and help mentally retarded children early in their lives. For 80% of the mentally retarded in our country there are no educational or training programs. 3. Urge your community to establish workshops where the retarded who are capable of employment can be trained. At least 85% of the retarded can support themselves. 4. Select jobs in your company that the retarded can fill, and hire them. Many of the retarded have worked for years in offices, factories and homes to the satisfaction of their employers. 5. To learn more about the entire problem of mental retardation, write for the free booklet Address: The President's Committee on Mental Retardation, Washington, B.C.
