Gannon St., in the 53rd annual Girls' Oratorical Contest yesterday at Lebanon High School. The contest is sponsored each year by the Lebanon's Woman's Club. Second place went to Barbara Mark, daughter of Mrs. Catharine Mark, 743 Monument St., and Raymond Mark, for her speech on child abuse, "Somewhere A Child Is Crying."

First Ave., | "Women in Prison — Rehabilitation of the System." and Kathy Labe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Labe, "Euthanasia — The Right to Decide." "Our schools, particularly on the elementary' level, are being overrun by educational anarchists. These so called "liberals" are a threat to our academic progress. Our children are not being properly versed in the essentials," was the opinion put forth by Sherri Reichard in her winning oration. "A child's education is much too fragile an aspect of his future with which to be tampered or experimented simply for the sake of change. Change is welcome, but not when the change itself is hindering his progress," she concluded. Child Abuse "Child abuse is an ugly social disease that is rampant in the United States. It is one of the ugly subjects that is usually hidden in a closet with the hope that it will go away," said Barbara Mark. "B. F Skinner, a well-known child psychologist, once said. "Give me a child and I can shape him into anything. We are now only finding how true that statement really is. Child abuse is a problem caused by people and it must be stopped by people." she concluded. In her third-place speech. Debra Yeagley said, "Until now the fact of wife beating has existed only behind closed domestic doors, on police blotters, as filing grounds in a divorce case, or as a part of crime report statistics. Local experts believe that wife abuse is one of the most underrated crimes in the country." "Lastly, to the female part of our audience. Are you going to be the meek and quiet or will you get help? If you start to lead a battered life, get help, don't become a battered wife." she concluded. Judges Judges for the contest were the Rev. Gerald Richards, Attorney Thomas Harlan. and Mrs. William Yingst. a member of the Lebanon Woman's Club, Prizes awarded to the winners were $25, $20 and $15.

(UPI) The jailed parents of an 18- month-old baby boy found abandoned along a snake and alligator infested river say they left the child with friends and don't know how he got away. Larry Hendrix, 24, and his wife, Judy Hendrix, 20, were arraigned Thursday in Titusville, Fla. Hendrix has been charged with possession of a stolen car and driving without a license.

Their son, Shawn, was found earlier Tuesday by two fishermen crawling along the banks of the St. Mary's River, which forms the Georgia-Florida line. Hendrix told newsmen Thursday his right forefinger was crushed recently and he and his wife and two sons, Shawn and 30-month-old Chris, has set out for Miami to consult a bone surgeon. "Shawn had a cold and he doesn't travel well." said Mrs. Hendrix, "He gets car sick. So we left him with a friend near Jacksonville and were going to pick him upon the way back." The couple moved to Fernandina Beach about a week ago. but returned to Waycross, Ga., briefly Monday. Charlton County (Ga.) Sheriff Ray Gibson said that when Shawn was found authorities discovered traces of marijuana on the infant's diaper.

Authorities said the baby will be placed in the custody of the Department of Family and Children Services here once he recovers from minor cuts and bruises.

PHONE 273 8516 Colonial Motherhood Mother's Day did not become a tradition until the early 20th Century, but colonial women certainly deserved recognition. A British cartoonist in 1775 depicted American women as neglectful mothers. However, the typical colonial woman had little time for the activities shown in this cartoon. Besides the household tasks that are familiar today, 18th Century women did their own spinning, weaving, butter churning, candle dipping, soap-making and gooBe-picking, among other chores. The simple act of cooking the evening meal took courage and daring. Early colonial fireplaces were constructed with the ovens at the back. So the cook had to reach over the flames to remove the food.
