Los Angeles, April 2.(AP)— When Reed Hadley reported back to his TV studio after an absence of several weeks in 1952, He was accused of taking the time off for a fishing trip. Until yesterday, he couldn’t tell anyone, including his wife, where he had been. As millions of TV viewers saw last night, Hadley was the official narrator for the initial hydrogen device test in the South Pacific—Operation Ivy. “It was the realest picture Buy Y oop NEW BUICK From HERB FORD « ON FRAZIER HUM'K 3340 Main LO> 7 High Temperatur«* ond Area* of Precipitation Expected Saturday 50 40 20 ,ft _ NONARY $ MARTIN DURHAM Sez: WE NEED BETTER SCHOOLS \ Temperature Figures Show ' Average for Area Arrow» Denote Wind How Rain SnowftrXfl Highs and Lows in Inches Feilow Citizens: On Business-Education Day, March 18, 1954, together with several hundred other businessmen of our city, I had the pleasure to visit our schools. Now here is what I learned on that day and the reason why I am asking you to vote for the increased school levy next Tuesday, April 6th* Many of our school buildings are obsolete, beyond repair and need replacing now with new, larger, modern school buildings, properly air-conditioned and illuminated for better health and vision for America's most precious asset, her Youth. Overcrowding in some schools is bad; and with anticipated increases in the number of students each year in the future, due to population growth and students, on the average, attending school more years in order to obtain a better education most vital to the welfare of the students and our country, these buildings need to be remodeled, modernized and enlarged. Now, as to the teachers themselves. I found that starting salaries are too low to attract enough high-caliber persons, both men and women, desiring to enter the teaching profession, and also that these starting salaries are not in line with the cost of living today. So, I say to you as one friend to another, "Let us have good schools staffed with competent, happy, well-paid teachers, teaching, 'Our American Way' of Economic, Educational, Religious, Political Freedom and Opportunity for All/' Go to the polls next Tuesday, April 6th, and THE WEATHER PICTURE: A cold front was moving southward yesterday, its leading edge at 12:30 o’clock indicated by the heavy line on the large map. Some snow will spread behind the front, as shown on the small forecast map, but it is unlikely that precipitation will reach the Kansas City area—(Wirephoto). PAROLE SOUGHT BY NINE.
