The beaten pathway crunches underfoot, ft is like a starlightecl walk on a rocky back pasture in' Michigan or Oklahoma. But the longitude is 4,000 miles to the east. This is a night pa trol with the French Army in Algeria. Any clump of bushes could be the nesting place for a rebel ambush. The French soldiers are the 22nd Regiment of Colonial Infantry, drawn from France's overseas possessions. They are headquartered at Marnia, seven -miles Inside the Moroccan border. The commanding officer of the second battalion is Major Henri Robert, son and grandson of a soldier, graduate of St. Cyr the French, West Point) in 1938.' Like most French career officers, he has been fighting ever since. Continuously At War France is the only country in the world to have 'been at war continuously since 1939—-the sec- v/orld war, then Indo-China, stil! North Africa. H*S battalion covers 70 square miles along the frontier.' Its 900 Negroes from French West Africa, 300 French draftees and 200 Vietnamese commandos are spread thinner than the book recommends. But the Algerian campaign does not fit the book to begin with. Algeria is about the size of France. But there U no front, line. Battles occur anywhere. Troops must. be. spread across the map. The rebels, with no artillery or planes, fight by the dozens or the hundreds, never by the thousands.

Acid Thrower Found Insane Asks For Trial James Sprouse, 23, Petitions Fort Wayne, Judge; Says He Prefers Prison FORT WAYNE (UP)—A former Student at Indiana Tech here,, who was committed b^ Norman Beatty Hospital at Westville.as "mentally incompetent" after he threw acid on a girl who refused, him a date, has 'asked, for a new trial so he can plead guilty and go to prison. James Sprouse, 23, Bakersfieid, Calif., was committed to Bealty by Allen Circuit Judge William H. Schannen last April. Schanneh's office received a letter from Sprouse Wednesday in which he pleaded with the judge for a new trial "so I can go to prison where I belong." He said in the letter that officials' at Beatty treated inmates, "like a bunch of children.-" Sprouse was 'working part-time at a restaurant here when the acid (browing incident occurred' Feb. 12 He said he threw sulphuric ^"iB Reading, lief t A r n e" venge when .she refused his re- s ' ve no reast>n ' quest for a date. Miss Clark and Paroled Killer Admits Hacking to Death Five Children and Mother SANTIAGO, Chile (UP)—Police said today a paroled killer has admitted hacking to death a woman and her five children. The confessed mass murderer .vas identified, as Jose Roldan :onoha, 27, 'an iron miner. His /iclims were the wife and children }[ another miner, Custodio Gomez Chaoo, at Los Coiplmes iron nine camp at Pupunahue in Val- .iivia Province. Roldan Concha was released on jarole-'for good behavior after serving one year of a five - year prison sentence for killing a man n self defense. Monday night, according to po- ',ice, he.went'to the home of Gomez Chaco while the miner was working on Die night shift. Wielding a huge woodsman's ax, Roldan Concha killed Mrs. Corner. Chaco and the children, who ranged in age from one to 14 years. Then, while neighbors spurred by the terrified screams 'of the woman and children rushed lo summon Gomez Chaco, Roldan Concha fled into the woods. Police captured him after »n ail-night liunl.

"On (jhe 12th day of April, 1557, I was tried in your court for throwing acid on another person. The doctor declared I was mentally ill at the time 1 committed the crime. Six Firms to Make Oriental Flu Serum WASHINGTON (UP)—The government told-drug manufacturers today to proceed with mass production of a vaccine effective fti warding off the highly comapious "Oriental flu" now spreading throughout the world.

Education today is a maze of bewildering terms, complex problems and a wealth of teaching aids. Motivation, the seven cardinal principles and audio-visual aids are all familiar components of today's schooling. However, it his not always been, so, and a look backward at the Cass county schools of yesteryear is a 1 look backward into the romance of a new and growing slate. Schooling, albeit crude, was simple. It mirrored the days not far- removed when life Itself depended upon a good crop, equitable trading and the avoidance of illness. The one-room schools of Cass county are out of use now, but the buildings remain; to remind us of a by-gone era in Hoosier history^ There seems to cling to these structures the flavor of early Indiana, when a hardy breed elected to make a civilization for themselves. The Imagination of tho out-back farmers went into tho naming ot the county's schools, "and some ot the names were more accurately descriptive than attractive. Bethlehem township boasted an edifice called "Floating Palace", no doubt so dubbed because of its appearance during the spring rainy season. "Mud Sock" was abandoned ns a Clay township institution in 1914, but It was mentioned in educational reports through 1917. A more learned title was bestowed upon "Brush College", also in Cluy township, wlilch was erected in 11157. . "Swrimp School" was the rather forbidding name given a structure in Deer Creek township which was still in use in 1017. An Eel township trustee of bygone days commented upo.n the name given a school in his'juris- diction, in a Cass county educational report. Concerning "Lovers' Lane" school, the trustee said. "To add to'the romantic nature...there was a dense woods or. either side, suggesting how nearly like a lovers' lane it really was. The trustees have always been careful to retain this tradition by piucing.in this school one who would m.easure up to the demands of the situation". One is prompted to wonder if such waggery In early educational circles resulted In matrimony, and, Jience, the necessity of replacing the teacher in' question. Three Palmer schools, in Washington township, stood, at one time, within view of each other. The ravages of time and progress huve removed one school, but two remain, The last of the three edifices has been converted into a fine residence by M. W. Cunningham, who owns the home. A gleaming television antenna at the. rear of the building lends a touch of the age of automation,. Cunningham spoke of by-gone days, when ho attended Palmer school, under the tutelage of Lo- gansporl ex-muyor W. 0. Fiedler. Cunningham lived across the road from t'he school, and returned yoara later to Washington township, to purchase the school 'build- Ing and convert it lo a farm home. The other remaining Palmer school is nested in a group of outbuildings ori the property adjacent to Cunningham's. It is an unpainted.dila- pidated structure whose sagging walk Indicate that its continued existence may 'be short-lived. % Cattle now lend a cajm note lo Hie grounds- of Long schotil southeast of Ihe Palmer buildings. Two miles east of Long school, one can sec the BurkeU school, its bell-tower, the traditional symbol of the country school, still perched, somewhat the worse for wear, atop the roof. ' As if in mournful accord with the mood created by the abandoned building,, a partially-dead tree stands nearby, extending bare, twisted limbs toward the sky. Inside the Burkett structure, the remains of a blackboard offers mute testimony to«lhe fact that this was a seal of Indiana education, circa 1000. Crockett school lies to the west of BurlcclL, and its painted sills indicate ils recent use, probably as u storage unit for the farm across the road. Still standing In Adams township Ls the GransinKer school. There is some question about the exact dale of the erection of this structure but it Is generally believed to have been built in Mi!?, nearly four years before a Cass county regiment left for duty, In response to President Abraham Lincoln's call for troops, lo answer Ihe"attack upon Koii Sumter. Only recently a storm blew the bell-lower from the roof-top ot the Gransingcr school. The structure itself Is fairly, sound, and its foundalion,'built up of small stones and mortar, is still firm. Gransinger was abandoned in-1912, and! opened again only briefly during World War I. ' • The romace of these small Hoosier schools lies in this .ine.s::?- abie fact: we are what we are today, due to them, and what they were. That we should observe them and their passing wilh a nole of.mild reverence is, indeed, •but titling; that I was not insane and that I belonged in a penitentiary and not in a hospital. Now your honor, I j believe thai you were right. "I only wish I had pleaded guilty and gone to prison, nl lea.-t I would be treated like a mail there. I feol that regardless of what a man lias done I believe it is a God given right for a man lo 1)e treated like a man if he acid like one. _. ' "Horc, we are all treated like a bunch of children. The thins I nm hinting at your honor, I would like to have a new trial and plead guilty, so I can go on to prison where .1 belong. I would appreciate your informing me us lo whether a new trial is feasible." Schannen was out of town and not available for comment. ElkharrYourh Dies Of Crash Injuries . ELKIIART (UP) — Clayton P.
