D. McClurkin's remarks concerning the new high school building comforting for the mist part. Dr. jMcClmkin, former .Blytheville superintendent now devoting most of his time to helping people plan school buildings — entire school systems in fact- — found what we have to be good. He mentioned need of a new gymnasium and high school lunchroom, but he said (.he new building meets the highest in professional standards. He also made a suggestion which rings of logic: naming the new high school J'or Rosa Hardy, longtime high school principal and now supervisor, iliss Hardy served as principal when Dr. JlcClurkin was superintendent. Dr. McChirkin pointed out in a private conversation that Miss Hardy had been offered the supennlendency in years past, but that she refused, maintaining that she felt she belonged with her high • school students. "Others of us, JlcClurkin included," he went on, "left Blytheville for greener pastures, but Miss Hardy has remained true to her first love . . . Blytheville High School." We'd like to second Dr. Mcl.'lurkin's motion. Britain Should Not Stymie Plans for United Europe The new vole of the Schnni;in oojil- sttcl pact nations to draft ;i charter for the political federation of Western Kuvope ranks as a truly nitinoriible event. The Si-human plan itself, and (lie signed but not yet ratified pact for a unified Fix-country Kuropcan defense force, were milestones on the path to unity which the world noted well. No one expected ureal speed ii\ the movement for a broader integration. So resent ot-eui'roiKcs class :;s. .". chrerimr surprise. The defense treaty carries a clause which states Uiat the first legislative assembly of the projected defense community should within six months draft a constitution for a permanent Knro- pean assembly with wide powers. But since that pact is not yet r:ili- 1'ieil. t h i s effort to frame a charter could have been months or even years away. Forward-looking- Kuropcan statesmen, sensing the favorable mood of the continent for action now, decided this was loo far away ami tou indefinite. They determined to act promptly. So now,' on the recommendation of the Council of Ministers of the Schu- mnn plan nations, the legislative as- KCinbly of the Schuman plan organization — the European Coal and Steel Community — has voted overwhelmingly to start coiiKtitulion-framinx talks without delay. (July Ihe German .Socialists, always reluctant, refused to join the effort. 'Iliis demonstration of statesmanship, ted Ijy a Bcnse of urgency, is one of the most heartening things to emerge from the European .scene in the whole postwar period. It reflects courage and daring and an acute notion of timing. The K rone h and Italians are taking the initiative. The British, represented neither in the Sdunnan plan nor the defense pact, may not like Ihe move, hut their objections .seem hardly likely to prevail. To he sure, the move toward federation might have come from the older European assembly which meets at Strasbourg and does include the British. Hut that body has made itself largely a debating .society", and as members the British have done little to promote a significant European federation. The British may have good reasons for not wishing to take part in a fed- crulimi Kurope, or even for trying to block its achievement. We .may feel compelled to respect Britain's other commitments and responsibilities around the globe, lint we can hardly commend any British effort to impede fulfillment of so obviously desirable a goal for the continental nations themselves. At this stage, all this may sound a bit dull or dry to the average American. But we arc talking here about nothing less than n United Slates of Kurope. And that is a project which ia neither dull nor dry but full of excitement and promise for all free men. Views of Others Citizenship Laboratories Atlanta schools take another long step forward with the Institution of a required course in working democracy. Too oltcn in Ihe past civic courses have IKCII entirely theoretical, while the schools' practical training \vns olfcrci! only In such fields as science and Iho vocations, A.S a con5Craiente, studcnl.s huie been graduated with a working knowledge of chemistry or cooking or typing, ljut with only a ha/.y idea of what mnkcs the city, state and nation tick. -- j_ Now ench high- school .senior will be required to take a field work-discussion course in Problems ol Democracy and Social Problems. He will study such tilings as income tax, voting and banking. He will visit courts. City Council meetings, health centers and banks. Discussion problems will include such topics as how to build a successful marriage and how to solve the crime problem. This curriculum revision ts part of a broadening education program to fit students lor citizenship, a program which last year brought addition of "Our World Today" to the public school curriculum. t This series, offered by The Journal in conjunction wiih school officials, provides an up-m- the-mlnute forum to actiuainl students with current events. Written by faculty members ol the University of Georgia'and publisher! In Tlie Journal, it COIIMMS weekly ol an article of current significance, u series of questions, and. later, the answers. It will be continued this year. Both the -Our WoiJd Today" program and Ihe nea- citi/enship course are forward strides in educating children to the re.=por.s:b;!ltic.s that accompany the privileges of lite In a democracy. They help to as-ure us more responsible cilizens for the future. —Atlanta Journal i SO THEY SAY cipal medium ol it;. in Billy Ko-.r Tfs a bow tune the wonirn did some real ser- io;i:- politicking.
