A look into Bulletin microfilm files during the week of Dec, 2-7, 1522, in addition to school emphasis also reveals interest' ing world news. DEC. i, 1922-The Texas Music Teachers Assn. is busily engaged in concluding the work of the convention here today. Today's sessions are being held at Howard Payne College and the discussions have provoked a great deal of interest. Of chief importance at the discussions today were the de- den, secretary.

Divorce Growing Problem in Russia MOSCOW (AP) - The Soviet, A Soviet scientist said last Union has growing problems j year, in reporting an earlier with divorce and broken homes, rate of 11 per cent, that most di- a Soviet philosophy teacher says, and he gives a main cause as a failure by young people to see the difference between sex and love. The broken homes result in "new cases of hooliganism, drunkenness and other social ills," teacher U. Sidorenko wrote Friday in Komsomolska- ya Pravda, voice of the Communist Youth League. He also blamed a "loss of feelings" and charged that Soviet schools encourage children to be overly cold and rational, rather than "cultivating emotions." In a Volga farm region northeast of Moscow, he indicated, 26 per cent of all marriages ended in divorce last;year, a sharp jump from 16 per cent the year before. While giving a frank look at family problems that usually are hushed up in the Soviet Union, Sidorenko did not report the national divorce rate. He said that, in general, "the relative number of divorces is growing." Up-to-date national figures are hard to come by. The most recent official statistic, for 1965, shows 18.2 per cent of Soviet marriages ending on the rocks. Sidorenko's comparable 1965 figure for the Kostroma area was 16 per cent, vorccs were caused by drunken- Area Men In Service ELM GROVE (BBC) — PFC Fred Smith recently arrived in Vietnam and is stationed a Pi en Hoa with the 92nd.

In America about one out of every four marriages ends in divorce. "Love lies at the basis of any great accomplishments," Sidor- enko said, adding: "One way or another, man's happiness is connected with sex questions." Soviet young people think love is the basis for their marriages, he said, "but far from everyone who gets married for what he thought was love really felt this lofty emotion. "Alas, very frequently a person turns out to be unprepared and considers love to be the ordinary sex impulse." Sidorenko called for special marriage-preparation courses, to be taught in the second year of the Soviet equivalent of college. He did not elaborate, but presumably the course would include sex education, a controversial subject here. He complained that high schools avoid this "extremely delicate" subject. 'Hie Soviet Union has experimented in a few cities with requiring six-month waiting periods for engaged couples before they marry, to see Jf their fecj- ings can stand the test of time. Sidorenko said another problem affecting the divorce rate was the hardship over Soviet women, most of whom work to supplement their husband's relatively low wages. ers can have a special meeting to discuss it. Mcany, in saying he had never seen so many activities af- i feeling the welfare of'the mem- I bership, added: "In the final analysis, that is what we arc in business for and it's sort of a happy coincidence that whatever we do to promote the interests of the people we represent seems to be good for most of the people of the country." Mcany did not mention Reuther by name in his speech but a well placed federation source said, "the General Motors negotiations gave Reuther an excuse for ducking the fight of his life." Some other union chiefs said Reuther's decision to bypass the convention because of the auto negotialions was understandable. Reutber, earlier this year, quit the AFL-ClO's policy-making executive council, calling it "that private club of the ancient men of labor." The 73-year-old Meany, In a kidding mood, said he had at- lended his firsl construction union meeting 43 years ago. "So, if somebody says 'Meany is getting old and fat," you can tell him at least that is half true; he is getting old," said the onetime plumber from the Bronx. cisions reached this morning to ceased to exist today had such arfnttt iVio rtieffir<i nrcrurti7:ilinh ftill mmmr* Mini llm M/..II r.,11 15 on Santa Anna High Honor Roll SANTA ANNA (BBC) — A total of 15 students were on the second six weeks honor roll of Santa Anna High School.

The column Dec. 2 contained some useful tidbits of information. One day Harding shook hands with 1,450 people. This would pump 10 gallons of water or milk cows.

Du Bols, formerly of the University of Arizona, now teaching at the University of Oklahoma, spent the weekend on the Eubank ranch on the Bayou South of Cross Cut. Dr. Du Bois is an authority on the recently developed method of dating ancient and recent fire sites or any spot where the ground has been heated sufficiently to oxidze the iron in the clay beneath the fire. He is interested in the Indian hearths and middens of this locality. "This is supposedly his first work in Texas and he has collected a number of speci mans from one site which is believed to have been occupied by the Archaic Tortugas Culture. An article in the May 1967 issue of the National Geographic Magazine explans and illustrates some of the work that he has done in Arizona and New Mexico.

The announcement came from Charles Woodburn of Amarillo, president of the Texas State Historical Survey Committee, saying this is a stale matching fund marker. * The marker is to be 27 by 42 inches giving history of this site as an Indian signaling post from pre-settlement days to 1870's by Comatichcs and other Indian tribes. Messages were sent by smoke, and someitme mirrors. This is the eighth offical Texas historical marker to be creeled in San Saba County. <£> W?
