PAGE FOUR THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE xnd LOGANSPORT PRESS, tOGANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, JANUARY Zt, MS* Editorials... HIGH SCHOOL CURRICULUM The recent proposal to the sphool board that a new citizens committee be formed to study the curriculum of the local high school is one which deserves serious consideration. We think it is highly desirable that the public have a bigger part in our school system and proper- 1 ly used advisory committees are an excellent means of increasing public interest and participation. When it comes to studying curriculum and making recommendations for changes in curriculum, however, it will take experienced educators in addition to a group of citizens to accomplish the job. • The average citizen has neither the background nor the knowledge nor the understanding to render an intelligent decision himself on what is the proper curriculum to offer in the high school as a preparatory course for college. If an outstanding group of local citizens were formed together with at least a few capable, experienced educators, the combination of such a group might make an excellent 'committee. Or, if a group of able educators were brought in from the outside to study the local high school curriculum and submit recommendations for changes, then we would have a sound base from which to work. Experienced educators who maintain constant contact with college courses, requirements, and needs, and at the same time are in a position to thoroughly know and understand high school curriculum, are the ones in the best position to make sound recommendations. Some of our college and university people, such as administrators and department heads, working in coordination with high school officials, are in a far better position to know what should be done than is the average citizen. We know of no conference ever called on the state or federal level to study educational problems • which was not overwhelmingly made up of experienced, recognized, educators, rather than' laymen. Any curriculum 'can stand improvement. Undoubtedly, the local high school curriculum can be '. strengthened, and changed effectively, although . the record will show that we have done a pretty fair job here by comparison. If we are going to consider . changes, an advisory group procedure would make an intelligent approach to the problem, but working closely with the group of lay citizens should be a group of the ablest educators available. George E. SOKOLSKY These Days THE MALLORY CASE Andrew J. Mallory, a rapist, was held by the Washington police for seven and one-halt hours before he was arraigned. 'It took the Washington, D. C. police that long to gather the data, to collect the evidence, to check alibis, etc., etc. •> Mallory's counsel went into the Supreme Court on apepal and the Supreme Court decided that the police had held him too long before arraignment—seven and one-half hours. Mallory did not deny that he was arapist. As a matter of fact, he had been convicted in a court of law at a fair trial and condemned to dcarh. The issue was •not the nature of the crime or the crime itself. It was simply how long may the police hold an arrested perso nto question him and to gather evidence when a crime has actually been committed. On that issue the United States Supreme Court freed Mallory on the sole ground that he had been held too long. POLICE OFFKCERS throughout the country were chagrined at this decision because it handicaps them in handling murder, kidnap-. ping ond other criminal cases. If they cannot immediately gather the evidence, they must let the culprit go. Suppose a murder is committed at I a.m. The police are notified that a body is on the sidewalk at 2 a.m. They arrive on the scene. There -is a. fingerprint which is telefaxed to the FBI for identification. At 2:30 a.m. the owner of the fingerprint is identified. By 3:20 a.m. the elleged murdered is brought in. He has an alibi; it needs to be checked. The hours of questioning, of denial, of added evidence coming in, in confrontation with facts pass. How many liours? Some date cannot be gathered during the night. Morning comes. A new start is made in a dozen, directions. It is found, for instance, that the culprit, wiho de- 'Don't Hit the Front—Just Torpedo the Bock Port" ^ g&n«i<" WALTER WINCHELL On Broadway The Broadway-Hollywood Line Angelo PATRI Home Child's First School The great ambition of c is to be grownup, and do the things Drew PEARSON Washington Merry-Go-Round in Chicago.

"Well, I can hardly believe my ears in the light o! the way you used to vote here in the House," replied Rains, "but in my judge- ment the change in you has been all for the good." Ike Is Naive Eisenhower's budget cutback on slum clearance and urban renewal is going to have rough sledding in Congress. Many. big-city mayors, whether Democrat or Republican, share Mayor Poulson's view. They favor a 10-year program between $3.5 billion and $5 billion o£ federal help to wipe out slums. They argue that if the teamsters, truckers, and the oil-gasoline companies could put across a $18-billion highway program, the mayors of American cities should get at least one-third of that for better housing. They point out that Eisenhower's proposal to let the states assume the responsibility for slum clearance is naive. Eisenhower apparently doesn't realize, they say, that state legislators are controlled by rural delegates with no interest in big-city problems.

The Movers Conference of America wanted to make it clear that the total annual business for all moving companies in the United States in '58 will approximate one billion dollars. One reason is the new multibillion-dollar highway program being put across by the administration. Up in New York a prominent railroad brotherhood leader was lunching with A. E. Perlman, president of the New York Central, who bemoaned the slump in rail revenues. "What has your friend Eisenhower done for the railroad Industry?" asked the brotherhood leader. "He put across a tremendous highway bill for the truckers but what has he done for you?" Perlman came to Washington shortly thereafter to ask for remedial railroad legislation.
