Daily Times Herald EDITORIALS Saturday, October 31, 1970 Algeria a Haven It ,now appears that Algeria may not prove to be quite the ideal haven for American extremists on the lam. The aborted Cleaver-Leary-Dohrn press conference must be giving them some second thoughts. For some time now the Black Panther leader Eldridge Cleaver has been in Algeria, which has harbored him ostensibly because he favors the Arab cause against Israel. More recently, drug guru Timothy Leary, escaped from a California jail, surfaced in Algeria. Then came Jennifer Dohrn, sister of Bernardine Dohrn, a leader of the extremist Weatherman faction of Students for a Democratic Society. The much touted news conference featuring these three did not materialize. The Algerian government was said to have refused to permit it for two reasons. The government evidently was uncertain about Miss Dohrn's position on the Arab-Israeli dispute. In the second place, the government was said to fear that a joint press conference might be used as a rostrum to favor drug use and to place "anarchistic" ideals in a favorable light. The Algerian government is known for its strict anti-drug attitude and for its animosity toward anarchistic philosophies. The episode is not without its humorous side. Algeria occupies a status similar to that of Cuba in the eyes of some American radical extremists; both countries are considered havens from what is seen as political repression in the United States. It would be interesting to know what Cleaver, Leary and Miss Dohrn muttered among themselves when things didn't go quite as they'd planned in that great land of the free, Algeria. Craft Training No matter how much money the government devoted to education, there would be calls for more. Yet for every $14 of federal money invested in universities, only $1 is spent on vocational education. Vocational education is a forgotten stepchild with no powerful lobby in Washington looking out for its interests. But conventional education, on which we spend so much money in the belief that it is the answer to poverty, will not eradicate or even reduce poverty, claims one government official. Poverty would be reduced not by opening new universities but by offering education with a vocational purpose, ' says Marvin J. Feldman of the U.S. Office of Economic Opportunity and director of the presidential task force on vocational education and poverty. He proposes a national system of vo- ed with the federal government supplying funds for the initial cost of buildings and materials. Another method would be performance contracts with private institutions to provide the education for the same amount allowed the school system. Ideally, he says, vo-ed should begin in the third grade and continue through high education schools, culminating in a degree in vocational education. Businessmen, labor leaders, parents and students must change their attitude that vocational education is something for the misfit, the disciplinary problem or the dull child who does not have the aptitude for college, says Feldman. Indeed, it might be added that vocational education could be a boon not just for the sons and daughters of poverty but for thousands of middle-class youths who enter college every year not because they want to but because of social pressures and the lack of any other alternative. Strange, for a nation that was built by working people, who made a reality out of the dreams of the political philosophers, a lot of us look down on the person who works with his hands. Meanwhile, some of them, like energetic plumbers earning $18,000 a year, chuckle all the way to the bank. Study of Aging The classic toast is some variant of "Health and long life!" Those words might be taken up as the slogan of a new group, the American Aging Association, which is dedicated to assuring a longer, healthier life for more people. Few of us — and certainly none who hear the grey wolf of old age snuffling at their doorstep — will find any fault in that purpose. A dissenting peep or two may come from those who fear that adding to longevity will worsen the problem of over-population. That is a poor argument, though, against undertaking to learn more about how to expand the healthy average life span for men and women. It is such research that the new organization intends to foster. There is need for it: the life expectancy of Americans has not increased since 1955 and may even be declining a trifle. The new impetus the American Aging Association may give to study in this field will be welcome. Washington Notebook Quick Quiz Q ._ which North American bird has the greatest wingspread for its weight? A — The man-of-war bird or magnificent frigate bird weighs only 3V 2 pounds, but its narrow wings stretch Vk feet. Buckley Top Man By Bruce Biossat Bruce Biossat LOS ANGELES (NEA) - In a late cross-continent telephone check, I have been advised that New York's Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate, Rep. Richard Ottinger, has personally done what others were supposed to do to him — stripped away priceless lead ground and put himself in danger of defeat by Conservative party challenger James Buckley. Ottinger, leading both Buckley and incumbent Republican Sen. Charles G o o d e 11 by what seemed a healthy margin a month ago, has been staggering downhill ever since. The experts' original script had it that Ottinger, coming strong off a late June primary victory rooted in heavy, costly television exposure, could only be pulled within range of defeat if many liberals and moderates deserted him for Goodell in their rage over Vice President Spiro Agnew's anti-Goodell assaults. In the ensuing weeks however, Ottinger has just been blowing it. In television debates with his rivals he has been creamed. On the issue front, he has been coming across soft and mushy. As I noted in an earlier report, his identity factor was not nearly as high as his spring television blitz suggested. Watching him campaign on busy streets in upper Manhattan, I saw hundreds of people fail to recognize him. There was irony in this, for his heavy television outlays brought severe criticism down upon him and are still haunting him. And, somehow, the Mr. Nice Guy of the springtime outing has this fall begun to strike more and more voters as boyish and perhaps shallow. Meantime, Buckley has been exceeding the most optimistic expectations of his managers and supporters. He takes the debates. He has found enough money to get the television exposure he needed to make a balanced fight of it. President Nixon himself has come within an ace of endorsing him openly. Irish, Italian and other ethnic Democrats have announced for him. The prospects mount that he will score hugely in such vote-rich New York City suburbs as are encompassed in Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland and Orange counties. Upstate is highly promising. In the very upper Manhattan sector where I saw voters try to puzzle out who Ottinger was, Buckley was nearly mobbed. The first New York Daily News poll showing Buckley with a seven-point budge over Ottinger and leaving Goodell a weak third may or may not reflect the candidates' real status. But knowledgeable politicians who once said Buckley might win now say he will win. And even those who think Ottinger will still pull it out believe the race will be extremely close. Buckley may gain fresh pickup from hitherto moderate Republican loyalists who were turned off by Goodell's mystifying Oct. 25 television appearance. He billed it as a major announcement, giving rise to speculation he might give up and urge Ottinger's election. Then, in an idiotic exhibiton, he simply reasserted his determination to stay the course and sought to cast himself in the martyr's role. But, again, in the Senate race the big news is Ottinger putting himself on the toboggan. In the governorship test between Gov. Nelson Rockefeller and his much-decorated Democratic rival, Arthur Goldberg, time has only underscored the indications of early October favoring a fourth term for Rocky. The New York Daily News poll giving him a 17-point advantage may be a good bit too steep, but the earlier signs of a big upstate edge and a good white ethnic cut into Goldberg's expected heavy Jewish and black vote in New York City are all still there for the governor. Rockefeller makes a flock of mistakes but simultaneously demonstrates a talent for laughing his way out of most of them. Some experts say the elements for a Rockefeller defeat are present but that the wooden Goldberg simply isn't the man to put them together. The comment has a familiar ring. The positive thing to say is that Rocky has a remarkable knack for survival under stress. He is an up-from-the-floor fighter, and nobody cares too much if some of his roundhouse swings miss the target a mile. Religion Today Jesus People Unite! By Rev. Donald Poling The generation gap between young people and older adults is most clearly seen in the church. The life style and the world view of many young people will not permit them emotionally to attend, support or the destiny traditional Rev. Donald Poling shore up of the church. Youths are puzzled by the church's quaint, irrelevant groups and organizations. They are put off by its music and some other-century liturgy. They are angered by its soaring rhetoric and sinking performance. Too often they feel that the Church has become a barrier to Christian belief in action. As a result, an increasing number have taken their Bible and bedroll in search of community that offers compassion and understanding. This "community" often is adjacent to a major college or university. The leadership for these small, underground youth churches comes from college chaplains, pastors under 30, and seminarians who know the score about peace, Black Power and ecology. The whole youth church scene is so fluid and unstructured that one is able to catch just a fleeting glance of its presence and purpose. While it has no national leadership and no major personality in charge, it draws together on issues, events and opportunities. Geographically, the youth church movement is strongest on the West Coasit, particularly California where the mainline denominations are in sharp decline and the secular society has set in like concrete over gravel. In the middle of this freeway culture, landscaped by muscle beach and old orange groves, is a flourishing Christian underground that keeps surfacing. And the "Hollywood Free Paper" is its prophet. Created by Duane Pederson, the HFP has grown in one year to reach more than 60,000 readers. Published every other Tuesday, it includes editorials, cartoons, announcements, comment on special events, and a pitch for the Jesus people. Pederson has made arrangements for groups to publish in Kansas City and Florida, thus giving the youth church a national reach. (A post card to Hollywood Free Paper, Box 1891-RC, Hollywood, Calif. 90028, will bring a frea copy.) Working with hippies, drug addicts, drop-outs, runaway kids, the paper is obviously more than a twice-a-month sheet. Its headquarters is in the middle of Hollywood at 6221 Fountain St. — four blocks from Vine. Feeding of soul and body, assisting kids on the road or on bad trips, counseling and comforting are all part of the ministry. This spring the HFP ran a story about a Hell's Angel who was killed, leaving a distraught wife and two children. Since Christ's Patrol Motorcycle Club was trying to help the broken family, HFP urged donations of clothing, food and cash. In another article, the editors said: "Thank you for the Blue Chip stamp books, we've been able to purchase several blankets and sleeping bags for the wandering, lost people God has sent our way . . . and we are here to help." Nearly one entire page is devoted to a listing of Bible Raps and Prayer. More than 50 meetings from California to Hawaii tell you that the youth church is moving along with speed and excitement. On the East Coast, Boston has become a major area of youth activity for Christians. Some think Washington, D.C., is stirring. As the bumper sticker states: Jesus People UNITE!

Carroll Hi-R Published by the Students of Carroll High School Vol. 17 Saturday, October 31, 1970 No. 9 A Story for Halloween Perhaps it has been a number of years since you last listened with wide eyes and prickling skin to those old Halloween stories of witches, ghosts and goblins. To commemorate this Halloween, we give you one of the old stories of yesterday. The little girl found herself on a strange crooked little street lined on both sides with tall, old, wooden buildings. As she strolled down the street, one of the display windows caught her attention, and she paused to stare in fascination at the figure before her. It was a life-sized doll of wax in the form of a young lad holding a sling-shot. In its perfection it lacked only life itself. Suddenly from behind the doll, appeared the head of a toothless, wrinkled old woman with a fantastic mop of scraggly gray hair which protruded in all directions. She beckoned to the little girl with rheumatic, deformed fingers and indicated a door on the right. The little girl entered a dimly lit hall lined with more cases of these human dolls and followed the old woman into a small room. The quick old fingers pulled from a drawer a beautiful white gown of delicate satin and lace, and held it up to the little girl. Shaking her head sadly, she folded it up again and placed it back in the drawer. On her way out the girl noticed another little girl staring with fascination at the wax doll in the window. She had strikingly beautiful blue eyes and long, dark hair. The old woman beckoned to her and she entered. Several days later the little girl walked past the store again. With horror she gazed upon a new doll with beautiful blue eyes and long dark hair dressed in a gown of satin and lace. 1 1 Villii^fi ^vi! <'iiii!jiii!liiijimniii]11jiiiiijitiiiii11 IIHHI M 4 iiiii lilt MEMBERS OF THE MOCK CITY COUNCIL are from left to right: Mary Peters and Jeff Jochims, councilmen; Class Hoi Council —rii-fiCL-ortlGr I'noto John Thielking, mayor; Mike Gaffney and Patti Hartzell, councilmen.

Upset was hoped for but, the Bengals just couldn't get moving against Mid-West Conference leaders. The dominance of Harlan can be shown by the fact that they netted a total of 489 yards compared to only 118 yards compiled by Carroll. The bright spot is the fact that 109 of these yards were on 7 pass completions out of 13 attempts for Tiger quarterback Kim Thorup. For his excellent passing and his outstanding playing throughout the year, Kim has been named ATHLETE-OF-THE-WEEK. Very noticeable in the latter moments of the game was the participation of most of the team in extra-curricular activities on the field. Four Carroll players were expelled from the game because they defended the name of Carroll High! There names are of no importance but, I would like to say that I am glad that Harlan will no longer be in our Conference after this year. I believe that Carroll does not have to play their type of football.
