Board Asked To Let Students Keep Posts The human relations committee was to make a recommendation to the school board, concerning transfer of students with status positions, in the board meeting today, Duane McCulIough, committee president, has advised Forrest Allen, board president. The resolution asks that all students elected in the last school year to positions or offices for 1971-72 he permitted to retain those offices in the school to which they are reassigned. "The number of status positions should be increased to the degree necessary in each receiving school to prevent a loss of such positions by students being r e q u i r e d to change schools through desegregation procedures," the resolution states. "For example, if a student who has been elected president of the student council is reassigned, he will serve as ra-president with the elected president in the receiving school."- Policemen are people, j u s t like the rest of us, except they have a harder job for which they get precious little appreciation. They're supposed to keep their cool and never be discourteous to the lawbreaker or anybody. If they turn out to be only human and lose their tempers now and then, it gets in the papers and they're accused of "police brutality." The cops do their jobs day a f t e r day and all night long, and we're glad they do. Even though when we take them for granted. They deserve a kind word now and then. Have a cop to dinner. And be sure to have Knolle Fudge Pecan Ice Cream for dessert. Like we said, policemen are people, and people love Knolle Fudge Pecan. Show them there are no hard feelings over that ticket they gave you.
