FOUR IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN SATURDAY, JULY 17,1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE "The Daily Globe is an independent newspaper, supporting what it believes to be right and opposing what it believes to be wrong, regardless of party politics, and publishing the news fairly and impartially." —linwood I. Noyes, Editor and Publisher, 1927-1964. Mrs. Linwood 1. Noyes, President Edwin J. Johnson, Editor and Publisher Shapers of American Society Shapers of American society is the plnase President: Lyndon B. Johnson in an ebullient mood uses to characterize iodav's teachers Some of the, newer problems of educators will be discussed at a White House Conference on Education Tuesdav and Wednesday. As is usual with these liigli level convocations, legislative solutions to current problems are ceilain to be given considerable priority. The President gave a kind of preview of the Education Conference in an address, July 2. to the National Education Association. He *aid he would shortly propose a National Teachers Corps that would enlist young people preparing for teaching careers to work beside teachers in city slums and rural poverty areas. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D Mass.) had proposed the creation of a teachers corps Feb. 11 in testimony before a Senate ecluca.ion subcommittee. Kennedy is co-sponsor — with Sen. Gaylord Nelson (D Wis.) - of a teachers corns amendment to the administration's high- e; education bill. The President promised the NT..4 passage of this measure as well as the national arts foundation bill. The higher education bill has been ordered reported in the House, Senate hearings arc complete. The arts and humanities measure has been approved by the Senate and ordered reported iii the House. President Johnson told the educators that the White House Conference would cover the problems of slum and poverty areas and of dropouts - "their talents wasted, their intelligence lost to the nation, their futures shadowed by their failure, and ours." He cited the need for more classrooms, books, and teachers to accommodate an enrollment increase of almost 1 million students a year expected in elementary and secondary schools in the next five years. "We are not going to stop." the President pledged, "until every child in this land can have all the education, of the highest qirdiry, which his ambition demands and his mind can absorb." Johnson ticked off with evident pride measures adopted by the present Congress-., including the elementary-secondary education bill. He said be had taken several administrative steps to provide aid for Negro teachers threatened with loss of jobs during integration of schools. The National Association for Advancement of Colored People on May 24 had asserted that 500 Negro teachers in North Carolina alone had been dismissed or had not yet received renewal contracts. Complaints also were c'ted from Negro teachers in Texas, Virginia, and Georgia. In the 11 former Confederate M'ltes there are an estimated 90.000 Negro teachers. T>he NEA on May 26 offered reemployment help to Negro teachers dismissed as dual school systems are eliminated. Commissioner of Education Francis Keppel on June 10 warned school officials that discriminatory dismissal of Negro teachers would not be permitted under desegregation guidelines issued by his oliice !;.st April 29. These are some of the immediate concerns of the "shapers of American society" who \vill eather for the discussions in Washington on Tuesday. As a former teacher who often reverts to a tutorial style. Johnson speaks with feeling of the "mounting needs" and "present deficiencies" of the nation's schools. Yes, It Can Be Done Yes. Virginia, there is an end to Santa Clans —to Uncle Sam playing Santa Glaus to the world, that is. Latest nation to go off the gift list is Nationalist China, which was declared sohent ;77id self-supporting on June 30. the end of the 1964-65 fiscal year. Since 1950, when Chiang Kai-shek moved liis government and armv. plus two million refugees, from the mainland to the island of Taiwan, U. S. economic aid totaled SI.465 billion. In that period, industrial production increased four and a half times and agricultural production more than doubled, as did per capita income, making the island a showcase of prosperity in Asia, Although this would not have been possible without the hard work and intelligent planning of the people and the government, the fact that Nationalist China is a compact island, scaled off from Communist infiltration and .subversion, contributed not a little to this success story. To repeat it among the nations <J Southeast Asia will be a much longer and more difficult process. But Nationalist China will remain an example of what can be done, and proof that American foreign aid can be more boon than doggie. At Least It's Not Flat There's more truth than poetry in the rhrase, "the four corners of the earth." There really are four corners, scientists now tell us. Not comers, exactly, but four high areas each covering several thousand square miles. The highest point of each area is about 220 feet higher than it would be if the earth were perfectly spherical. One area centers over Ireland and extends toward the North Pole. Another sweeps from New Guinea toward Japan. A third lies be- fween Africa and Antarctica, and a fourth is west of Peru. The areas were discovered by studying the minute changes in the orbits of satellites. As they pass over the high points, they are pulled downward a few hundred feet by the slightly higher gravity. Previously, satellites revealed that the earth is slightly pear-shaped, with the small end at the North Pole. The more we learn, the more we realize, just how out of shape the old ball really is—a fact that a lot of us have onlv guessed at before. Best way to learn the value of money is to Co broke. Around the Peninsula The Rev. Paul Landstrom has opened at Marquette the first Michigan General Chap- laincy Service office of the Lutheran Welfare Services to serve Upper Michigan, His function is that of consulting chaplain for Upper Michigan and he will conduct direct pastoral ministry in hospitals and other institutions. He will counsel pastors and congregations who iteek help for persons in need of various social services. He also will assist public and private welfare agencies in using resources of Lutheran churches. He will be available, too, when individuals are referred to him by congregations and social service agencies. Lutheran Welfare has seven offices in Wisconsin to provide child and family sen-ices, including help for unwed parents, foster home and adoption services and family counseling. Need for such assistance never has been greater. Public agencies have been unable to Keep up with the need and facilities are overflowing, in spite of the expenditure of vast sums on buildings and personnel. * * • Various Upper Michigan communities are among those which would like to be considered for establishment of a national monument to Father Jacques Marquette. They are directing their claims to the Father Marquette Tercentenary Commission. Reports on his missionary explorations indicate that he visited Indians on the Menominee River about 300 vears ago. Escanaba is one of the communities which would like to be the site of the statue although research indicates, that he came no closer to the site of the city than Point Utlour or Fairport on the Garden Peninsula. Ludington and Frankfort in the Lower Peninsula are among the cities which claim to be the site of his grave. The history of Father Marquette's; wilderness explorations is rich in the back ground of Wisconsin and Michigan. His name and endeavors are perpetuated today in count less localities of these two states. An official, nationally recognized statue to him is a prize worthy of any community's aspirations.

This appears to be the reason why he passed away at a relatively early age. Mr. Stevenson m many ways resembled William Jenn ings Bryan, who likewise was an unsuccessful presidential candidate and who also died at the age of 65. Both Mr. Stevenson and Mr. Bryan were remarkable orators, and frequently seemd to be concentrating their wh o 1 e physical and mental faculties as they spoke extemporaneou sly. The strain on men who speak in this manner is sometimes associated with subsequent hea r t cent months, Mr. Stevens o n was not downhearted. He felt that a crisis was coming and that it was up to the United States not to desert the U. N. but to continue to right tactfully from within the organization to see to it that the Communist influence did not become dominant or destructive. It will be difficult for President Johnson to replace him. Certainly it will be necessary to find someone in the diplomatic service who is capable not only conducting diplomatic conversations but also in presenting in public and over television the viewpoint of the United States at the gatherings of the U.N.

His boycott o f Common Market agricult u r al talks, after all, has brought the not actually say no to France's demands that they keep their word. Instead, they said they would approve a system of farm subsidy financing If De Gaulle would okay plans for strengthening the Common Market's Executive Commission and Parliament.

The Common Market had made a pledge to France in January, 1962, and it defaulted on that pledge. So the French walked out. Le Grande Charles will never be an easy man to get along with, but he had compromised France's predominantly agricultural interests three years ago when he agreed to certain industrial measures especially desired by West Germany, in return for an understanding that the agricultural argument would be settled by June 30 of this year. The deadline fell and there was no agreement. 0 £ * DE GAULLE WANTS OWN DECK — It probably is true « ft ft WELCOMED EXCUSE —This is not to say that De Gaulle had not been seeking some such excuse. Ever since the Common Market was organized, De Oau- lee has been disturbed by 11 s efforts to create a strong, sup- ernatlonalist political entity. And at the end of this year, the European Community will abandon the system of control by veto for majority rule. De Gaulle has made It plain he does not like the idea of power residing in the Common Market's bureaucratic s t r u c- ture.

This was $155,065 less than the sum paid out for the corresponding period of 1964 Job seekers totaled 486 in June, compared with 509 for the corresponding month of 1964. The substantial decline in unemployment payments, indicates that the steady upturn in economic conditions has penetrated quite deeply to relieve the situation in this part of the Upper Peninsula.

Pur pose of the tour is to acquaint legislators with scenic and other resources of the region so that they may be more familiar with the situation in dealing with any future legislation affecting any part of all of the 15 counties north of the straits. The group is said to be comprised of the largest number of legislators ever to make such a visit. Chambers of Commerce and resort and motel operators are cooperating in the excursion. The trip adds visual and physical knowledge of the region to written and spoken information which might be supplied the legislators jn any legislative proposals they may act upon affecting the Upper Punin- sula. , in criticial discussions with representatives of other countries at Geneva. President Wilson broke down at the age of 63 during his fam- oujs western trip in Septem ber 1919 after he had spoken extemporaneously daily, and sometimes twice a day, for nearly three weeks. ft * ft Adlai Stevenson ran for the presidency twice. In 1960, Mr. Taylor. Stevenson had remarkable support for a third presidential nomination and, but for the more influential political organization behind the Kennedy candidacy, might have had a third chance at the presidency. Mr. Stevenson's entry into public life was doubtless inspired by family associati o n s. For his grandfather served as vice president with Presi dent Grover Cleveland from 1893 to 1897, and was the vice-presidential candidate in 1900 on the Democratic ticket with William Jennings Bryan. But it is not so much in the field of politics as in the area of diplomacy and foreign relations that Adlai Stevenson has made his mark for poster i t, y Few people realize the scope o: the tasks performed by the U. S. ambassador to the United Nations. He deals not with one government but with seve r a governments simultaneously. In deed, the post might well be designated as "U. S. secretar; of state for the United Na tions." Although the headquarters o the U. N. is in New York, th contact between the Americ a n ambassador's office and t h State Department in Washing ton is close, and there is con tinuous communication betwee: them, in a sense, the ambassa dor is under the specific instruc tions of the president or the sec retary of state, but often h must act on his own, especiall as he answers in impromp t fashion charges made by othe speakers in the U. N. Genera Assembly or in the Secur i t Council. * ft » Adlai Stevenson had a remark able facility of expression. H could make extemporane o u speeches that were not unl i k _ those of Woodrow Wilson, whom he greatly admired. Mr. Stevenson was especiall adept in replying to the Com rnunists, who have so frequently with their distortions, endeav ored to misrepresent the pos tlon of the United States i world affairs. He not only wa impressive in his public appear ance but performed very effec lively In his diplomatic contact and particularly in his priv a t conferences with the represent; tives of many foreign governments. Despite the many discouraging aspects of the U. N. in re- the U.

Adi a i Stevenson was universally respected and regarded as a sincere and conscientious representative of the United states. (Copyright, 1965, New York Herald Tribune Inc.)
