Students at BHS Set Hospitality Example Hospitality is sometimes akin to the weather. There's quite a bit of tnlking about it, but seldom is anything actually done concerning it. But our young people nt Rlytheville High School have decided to do something about hospitality. They have formed n newcomers' club, which was organized by 16 students (and Miss Effie Lee Terrell, faculty adviser) for the purpose of assuring a warm welcome for new students. Understand, the organizers nre nil more or less veteran Blytheville residents who felt the newcomers needed something special to make them feel at home. Undoubtedly, the elder citizenry of our town would do well to follow the spirit of this idea with respect to adult newcomers. The high school club' is a fine example of hospitality. Just hope the Arkansas Athletic Association doesn't get the idea we have so many newcomers we had to organize a club to take care of them. Survey Shows Rosier Life For College Graduates The college graduate enjoys the unquestioned advantage of making more money than his tinacnricmic fellows, but at the same time there is thrust upon him the less obvious distinction of having fewer children. These are samples from a recent survey on the Old Grad by Time magazine, which likes to point out that 77 per cent of its readers are college-trained. Other survey samplingss: There are about 6,000,000 college graduates in the country today, and three out of five are men. About seven of every ten graduates come from the 21 states in the East or Midwest. And half come from cilies or small towns. If a person was born in the South or lives on a farm, the chances are he won't ever get to college. Graduates beget graduates. A total of 4<1 per cent come from families in which one or both parents got degrees. Surprisingly, 71 per cent of the fi,- 000,000 total worked their way through college, either wholly or partly. The college men surveyed had median earnings of 54689 i n 1947. (Median is that point at which half the incomes were above and half below.) In the ?;\me year, the median income of all American men was $2200. That R college degree pays off in getting the first job after graduation is shown by the fact that the college man makes more in the first year than the average man does at hie peak—his late thirties and early forties. The two medians are $3537 and $2845. What's more, the thing snowballs. The older the Old Grails get, the wealthier they get, Graduates over 50 make about three times as much as the average man. A college degree seems to have a domestically settling Influence on n man. Of the college graduates, 96 per cent were still living with their wives at the time of the survey. For the U. S. as a whole, the figure was 8fl per cent. The average Old Grad h-s two children, which \K under the average for all American married men. This Is attributed to the practice of birth control. Of the lady Old Grads, 31 per cent nre unmarried. This compares unfavorably, or perhaps it's favorably, with the 13 per cent unmarried among American women as a whole. In this connection, Dr. Paul Poponce, the sociologist, believes there is a "widespread tendency of women to seek to marry above their own level, and of men to seek to marry below." Ernest Havcmann and Patricia Salter \Vest have written a book based on the survey and titled, "They \\'ent to College." The authors say the figures knock down the myth that colleges are hotbeds of radicalism. The average college man, say the authors, is quite conservative in his political opinions. As partial proof they cite survey figures showing G4 per cent were generally opposed to the New Deal and its political program, as against 3G per cent who generally favored it. All of which leaves us uncomfortably at a loss for a tidy conclusion to draw from the whole business. Probably the most to be hoped for, meantime, is that happy day when every man is a college man, capable of making his own survey on, say, Time. Views of Others Truth We Need to Relearn If (he wording wasn't so olri-fa.shioned, you might think the following statement had been recently Inspired: ". . . the habit of dealing with large sums will make the government avaricious and profuse; and the system Itself will Infallibly generate the base vermin of spies and Informer*, and & still moie pestilent race of political tools and retainers of the meanest and most odious description. "The prodigious patronage which the collecting of this splendid revenue will throw Into the hands of the government It with so vast an Influence, snrt hold out-such means and temptations for corruption, as all the virtue and public spirit . . . will be unable to resist." Thnt was written 132 years ago by Sydney Smith, an English clergyman, editor, wit nnd political student. The founders of our government recognized the perils o( bigness and huge spending even earlier. We'd better get It Into our heads today. A gigantic bedlam of public spending is more to be dreaded than any foreign foe. —Arkansas Democrat SO THEY SAY Spring Frolic 'efer fdson's Washington Column — Heres Answer to the Question About Eisenhowers Religion The aim of the UN command delegation is to prevent resumption of hostilities during the period of armistice . . . but we have to remember that you cannot prevent murder by passing a law. —Adm.

Part of the whispering Peter Edson campaign abo'it t seems West Point year book. Beside D wight D. Eisenhower's graduation ilcture are satirical references 'Ike , . . the Swedish-Jew." Actually, the "Eisenhauer" — meaning "iron-hewer" — family Is of straight German and Swiss descent. As a boy, Dwlght Eisenhower was wrought up under the strict puri- nntcal teachings of what was cnown around Abilene, Kans., as 'The River Brethren." This was he Mennonito sect to which his •military posts and camps, he accepted whatever Interdenominational services were offered by the chaplain on duty, General Eisenhower was married to Mamie Geneva Doud by a Presbyterian minister, the Rev. M. Williamson, at Denver. Colo., f July l, When General Eisenhower became president of Columbia University in June, 19-18, he was asked at a press conference if it was not true that Columbia expected its presidents to be religious leaders? The general replied: "I am one of the most deeply religious men I 1916. The Doud family was Presby- know.

In all my years of experience in meeting people and lending money. I have never asked anyone's religion." The religious history of the Eisenhower family, however. Is of more than usual interest. In the 18th century, the general's ancestors were forced to flee from Germany and settle fn Switzerland, because of religions persecution. They were among the early reformationistg. A hundred years later the Swiss Eisenhowers migrated to America They settled in Pennsylvania at first and then in the 1870s migrated to Texas with a colony of "Swiss Brethren of Christ." the sect to uhich the family belonged.

TN A MESSAGE to the IGth ml- mini convention of Army and Navy chaplains at the Pentagon in October of that same year, General Eisenhower wrote: "Religion has always been the most elect five process of developing human character strong enough to forget the motivation of selfishness and to act in the large concept of duty to God, to humanity, and to country. "The continued and efficient action of the citizen In the Interest of more excellent character will be a realization and a dynamic contribution toward the solution of urgent world problems now demanding our attention. Religion nurtures men of faith, men of hope, men of love. Such men are needed in the building of a new world rejecting the glory of God."
