PAGE BW35 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPOR1 PRESS. LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, OCTOBEK J, IMS. Editorials... BUILDING CORPORATION FOR JUNIOR HIGHS? ' Before a decision'is'reached as to-whether to build the two new junior highs through a building corporation or,not, it seems prudent .to ask,/ "Just'what will the junior high .student population be here in two, three, or four years?" As far as the public is concerned, ,the urgency '. of building sooner through the , cpstlier. school '. building corporation : as against waiting another year for the possibility of obtaining "a much-less costly. Common School. Fund .loan,.should be decided primarily on the heed for ; the':new junior high-school space at the time of completion under either of the;two plans. - . Is the upper elementary school population increasing so -heavily here that we should start building immediately, or at /.least "as quick'ly as possible? The-answer, to that question'is determinable, and, need not be guessed at. . The junior high-"enrollment of 1,962, 19.63, and .. 1964, is'now! in the'elementary schools, and a fairly accurate estimate';, of our junior' high space requirements in ..-those years can and should' be ' made now, so'that there will be .no need for the board to shift the-blame to anyone if "we lack the. school space in the next several-years; The responsibility lies with the school board. We have repeatedly purged -that a sound building- program be accomplished without delay.. Yet at the same time, the construction should be accomplished at the lowest possible'cost t'6*t'he:tax- : '. payers, .consistent 1 with actual building needs. Interest on a Common School Fund loan is 2 per cent.. Interest on bonds issued by a building corporation will run close to 4% per cent. On a two million dollar loan or bond issue, paid off in equal installments over a period of 20 years, interest costs to the local taxpayers will be approximately half a million dollars higher oh the building cdrporation bond issue than on the same program accomplished with a loan through the Com• mon School Fund. . • .. If the school enrollment will be such as to require the new junior highs before 'they can be built with a Common School Fund loan, then we should proceed -now with the 'building corporation program. If junior high school enrollment in two or three years will not be so heavy as to make immediate building mandatory, then the taxpayers should be saved the-added half million dollar cost, .and we should do all possible to obtain the Common School Fund loan. 'This'is the determination our'school board 1 ' must make. GEORGE E. SOKOLSKY THE LUST FOR LEADERSHIP Many persons these days talk about leadership, about the need for broader, more intensified leadership. It:is difficult quite to understaH what they mean because aclr.alty the history of the 19th and 20th ; centuries ^has been a revolt against' leadership, an effort on the part of the individual to think things ' out. for himself and to act upon his own judg- •'•irient and to take the consequences. That: is why during- these , centuries there have' been so many changes and many of them' have been for the better. When great historic changes take place, . many institutions of social value temporarily seem to collapse. The disturbances caused by such changes are always more trying to contemporaries than they are, • significant in history. During this century, when material security seems so urgent, suoh movements »s fascism, nazism, communism, -socialism, / and may others have developed to achieve, total dependence of the individual upon the state. THE CONCLAVE OF leadership which appears in the general assembly of the United Nations is not too impressive. -These are not men of broad culture or of noble aspect; most of them are practical politicians, men who fought their way up through revolutionary forces or - through 'the ap- aratus of party organization. Most of the -men at this meeting who stand out as leaders and who * control &3 lives of people : ,and Vn€ destinies of nations are startu'ngly not strong men, not handsome men, not powerful personalities. There is, for instance, not an orator in the crowd,. Khrushchev, Nasser, Castro, Eisenhower are not great speakers -either in voice, in gesture . or in nobility of 'thought and expression. Nasser's monotony was shocking in view of his power to sway men. , YET THESE MEN are. leaders and men follow them. .Why? What is the attraction? The answer seems to be that in an age of action, men of action are ad- ROMEO AND JULIET ANGELO PAT RI 'Engagement' fs Alarming To Parents DREW PEARSON NEW YORK. - Nikita Khrushchev is a long way from fulfilling his boast that Russian Communism- will replace ' American Capitalism; . but at least. he can ^ay that he' has taken over part of the family fortune of Secretary of State Herter.
