Rickover, director of the Atomic Energy Commission nuclear reactor program, says a good teacher should be paid more than a senator, or even an admiral. "If there is not enough money to pay for education," Rickover told the Fund for the Republic meeting Monday, "I would take it out of the military funds." The two-day meeting, which ends today, marks the 10th anniversary of the fund. It has brought together a host of speakers from this country and overseas to discuss "challenges to democracy in the next decade." Rickover said American education is placing too much emphasis on "Salable skills" and that there is too much influence wielded by "promoters and administrators" instead of teachers.

The boy, Carl Amis Kilmer, a first grade pupil at Guernsy school in the Brooklyn school district, was on the stand Monday at the opening of the trial. He is the plaintiff in the case through his father. A recess has been called until Wednesday when District Court Judge L. R. Carson of Oskaloosa will rule on whether Carl's father can testify about what his son told him. This was challenged by the defense. The defendants are Poweshiek County Sheriff William R. Welsh, 51, and Brooklyn school princi- pal Herbert Haas, 41. The boy asks $10,000 damages from each. Carl's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry J. Kilmer, are farmers near Brooklyn, Iowa. Kilmer was a member of the NFO during its holdin" action to keep farm products from market. The Kilmer boy testified that Haas talked to him during noon recess Sept. 27 and took him to a room where another man, later identified as the sheriff, and two other youths, were present. Carl said the sheriff asked the questions but he was uncertain whether Haas was present all the time. He said the principal treated him well. The boy said he was asked if his father cut fences and he answered "No." "I always went out with dad and never saw him cut fences," Carl testified.
