Eipcrt Itfitrtaf Daughter Father Are School Mates PASTOR OF SH AFTER CHURCH ENROLLS IN HIGH SCHOOL Sister and brother combinations in the classroom are every-day occurrences but when father and daughter are schoolmates, it's unusual. Shatter High School boasts the distinction of such a rare event with the enrollment this semester of Chris Ummel, pastor of the Shaftor Far IT* Workers Community Church, as an undergraduate student, along with his daughter, Gwendolyn, popular , member of this year's senior class. Interviewed by J. C. Sanders, Shatter High School Journalism student, as to his reasons for wish- ingto complete a high school course at a time when the average adult might consider himself too old to associate In classes with adolescents, the Reverend Mr. L'rn- mel stated; "At your age I was denied the privilege of a high Hchool education. Of course, it was not a groat disappointment at that time. However, as the demands of life have presented themselves J have felt very keenly the need of it. At last I have the opportunity to attend and I am happy to :it Shafter High School * with you this year." Mr. Ummel is justly proud of his daughter, Gwendolyn, one of Shatter High School's top-ranking college preparatory students >vho plans to follow a musical career after her graduation next spring. Mlsa Ummel has already demon- started considerable ability as a pianist, having accompanied the high school glee club successfully for the past three > ears. She also is the accompanist for the community church of which her father is pastor. Firmly convinced that an education is needed more today than ever before, The Reverend Mr. Ummel plans not only to complete his interrupted high school career but to go to college in order, he says, "to better equip himself to fulfill the broad demands of his chosen profession." He expressed the hope that he may have an opportunity to fill a student pastorate while attending a school of higher education after leaving high school. Dewey Outlines Security Plans Continued From Page Ono local communities of tin information service to tell veterans where to get jobs, how to get benefits under the G. I. bill, and how to continue their education. Dewey said that from one side of the country to the other, "our people are determined that we are not going back to the 10.000,000 unemployed we had in :940. "They know that under the Xew Deal we had to have a war to get jobs,' 1 he declared as the crowd thundered its applause, "You don't have to tell people that. They haven't forgotten it. And they are worried about it. "They are worried about it because they remember that in all those long years from 1933 to 1940 this country failed for the first time in its history to achieve veal economic security. 1 ' There might be difficulties, Dewey conceded, in avoiding a bookkeeping burden on small employers, family type farmers and others in the collection of social security taxes when they were brought under the law's coverage. But he added: "If we make up our minds that protection against old age is some- thins to which every American is entitled, we shall find a way to reach that objective.' 1 . The nominee asserted that there now is "a serious omission' in the list of those covered by the social security benefits since men and women now in the armed services, who once worked on jobs covered by old-uge insurance, suffer a gap in their benefit credits while in uniform. "Unless this law Is changed," he declared, "their reward for serving their country may be a net reduction and loss in their old age or survivors benefit. The law must be changed promptly to correct this injustice."
