Classes Boom in Caruthersville By SONNY SANDERS Courier News Correspondent CARUTHERSVILLE — Thirty- seven persons are learning beginning sewing, general shop or typing in adult education classes at Caruthersville High School. One woman. Mrs. Grace Tanner of Portageville, makes a round trip of 40 miles weekly to attend typing classes. Two people from nearby Hayti are also enrolled in adult classes. Edward J. Shelton, high school principal, said he hopes specialists within the • community will be teachers in adult courses next year. Such courses as photography and flower arrangement would probably be included, Shelton said. Of course, these special teachers would be paid for their services, it was pointed out. S10 Tuition Eighteen other people signed up for. seven more courses. But that would average only two persons in a course and wouldn't be sufficient to permit conducting the classes. Ninety-one people enrolled in last year's initial adult education classes here. There are only half as many classes this your as there were six classes in 1955. It's Ancient Adult education in'its unorganized aspects is an ancient activity, according to Shelton. It first appeared in organized form after the Civil War, but didn't take great strides until 1924. Many people were deprived of adult education during the depression years and a grea^ rebirth of such projects has taken place since World War n. Shelton told the story of a man in another town who was asked why he was In an adult training class there. The 43-year-old man answered, "Because I don't want to die at 50 and have to wait until I'm 70 or 80 to be buried." This man apparently thought people over 50 might have more to enliven their daily activities after gaining more knowledge from adult education classes. Teachers think CHS adult education classes are making people set aside the old theory that "old dogs can't learn new tricks." Changing Times ENNIS, Tex. (iPi ~ R. L.

OUR CHIME CLOCK PLAYS: 'Lord, thru this hour Be thou our guide So by thy power No foot ah»ll slide." is the price too high? The dollar cost of providing increased wafer supplies under current conditions will be high. Will it be too high? It might appear to be more economical to wait for a downward curve in the whole structure of prices and wages before undertaking the kind of construction programs required to meet our needs. But where are the signs that such a curve is in the making? And how long can we afford to wait?H took just one hot, dry summer to imperil the water supply of many millions of people. Suppose next year—or the year after— brings similar conditions? Picture a shortage that goes beyond the critical stage. New York was only days away from such a crisis. Some smaller places went through it. • Picture a water supply inadequate to handle a serious fire. Picture a water supply insufficient to maintain proper sanitation. Picture a water supply no longer able to keep industrial processes functioning. The price of keeping pace with the need for wiiter may seem high, but what about the price of failure? One uncontrolled fire, one epidemic, a group of major industries lost to the community—any of these could involve an expense beside which the price of improved water supplies—even with costs what they are—would hardly be noticeable. Water is essential to life—the life of a city as well as the life of a human.being. Without water, a man dies. Without water, a community faces the same fate. In the face of a crisis, no price can be too high. High prices paid to prevent a crisis are low prices! Blytheville Water Go.; 'Water Is Your Cheapest Commodity'
