UPI, --Vivien Kellems. at 71. IE going back to school to set a doctorate on a subject t h a t made her a national headliner nearly two decades a°o. The subject--laxes. It was on taxes that Miss Kellems defied Harry S Truman in particular and Uncle Sam in general. Miss Kellems plans to enroll in October at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, to work on the degree. But she said she also will make some side trips in another interest -- to find what happens to American aid in foreign countries. "And I'll get the answers," said Miss Kellems. with a determination that has marked most of her 71 years and jousts with presidents and politicians. "I'm going to do quite a bit of traveling. The faculty gives you permission to make studies and do research." she said. "1 expect to go to India. I want to see where all this money and material goes and what Is done with it." Her doctoral thesis will be primarily on the U.S. income tax which took her on a collision coarse with Uncle Sam In 1948. She refused to collect withholding laxes from 40 employes at her cable grip plant which she started 28 years earlier on a Sl.OOO shoe string and built into a million dollar business. Miss Kellems objected to what she called bein: a "tax collector" for the government and wrote a letter to then President Harry S Truman asking that "High Tax Harry." as she dubbed him. indict her. There was no indictment but her bank account was attached and the government took S8.000 which was returned after Miss Kellems sued. An election law reformer, she spent nine hours on the floor of a voting booth on Election Day in 1D64. protesting the use of the mandatory parly lever on Connecticut voting machines. The device was later abolished by constitutional amendment. Miss Kellems the Iowa-born daughter of a minister, already has begun compiling material for her doctoral thesis. She has found, for example, that In Amsterdam, the Dutch apparently have a tax on the width of interior staircases. "That's why the staircases in those houses are so narrow," she said. "Imagine, those lovely old houses having those beams extending Irom the rooftops so that furniture and the like can be taken in the windows because the stairs are too narrow.' She said taxes apparently account for the relatively poor lighting in some French homes. "I don't know whether taxes are levied on the size of the windows or the number of them, but either is reduced to ease tax payments." She claims that an English law levied on lead in 1745 affected the beauty and clarity of that country's cut glass. To lessen taxes, she said, makers reduced the lead content in the crystal. In the United States, the income tax is a moral issue as far as she is concerned "When Ihal law was passed, it tended to make liars out of people." said Miss KeDeras. She has been described variously as gadfly on the body politic, an arch-Republic?.n. a crusading non-conformist, and a staunch supporter of Barry Goldwater. but she insists she's not a politician. At any rate, starting in October. Miss Kelkms will be a student. YOUR CHILD AND SCHOOL Some Summer Jobs Waste Teacher Talent By DAVID NYDICK I drove into the local gas station and had my car filled up by a sixth grade teacher. The clerk In the corner delicatessen is a high school English tsacher. The vacation replacement for the mailman is guidance counsellor in the local junior high school. What is your child's teacher doing this summer? Is he Improving himself as an educator, is he working at his profession or is he trying to earn a "buck" in whatever Job he can-get? Perhaps this is one of the greatest wastes of talent which exists in our society. The thousands of teachers, each of whom is a trained specialist, number among the nation's most important assets. Skilled personnel are needed to maintain our economy. Why do we allow so many qualified persons to waste one or two months each year performing jobs which are comparatively unskilled. Don't misunderstand. Many educators do work al (heir professions or telatedactivities during the summer. There has been an increasing use of educational talent over the past years. One ot the most important influences has been the availability of employment in projects financed by federal funds. Some ot the programs which use educators during the summer months are Head Start wiiicli is designed to help pre- school children become better prepared for school. There are special programs for students who have learning problems. There are regular summer schools where students can take additional courses or make up courses which they failed. Many book publishers hire teachers as consultants as do some manufacturers of school supplies and equipment. A number of school systems employ stalt membersduringthe summer to work on curriculum materials and to prepare special programs for the coming school year. A large number of school systems now employ administrators, secretarial help, maintenance and custodial crews during the summer. There is a great deal of work preparing for the school year which can and should be done during July and August. Many educators are pursuing studies in colleges and universities. Management in educational fields should look carefully into the use of teaching talent during the summer. Some creative and logical thinking will surely reveal many ways in which She skills of educators can be properly used.
