January 31, 1969 Boyle Is In Hemember When 1 Mood NEW YORK (AP) - A fast- spreading drive by American Negroes and their supporters for special treatment in the schools has brought campuses in many parts of the country to a boiling point. Some student leaders in state after state are pressing for new "black studies" programs, lowered college enrollment standards for Negroes and other minority groups, more Negro faculty members. In some schools there are demands for autonomous Negro colleges within integrated universities. The "movement," thus far without visible links among schools where it is in action, has spread even to high schools and grade schools in some cit ies. The black militants say they are seeking to establish a Negro identity. They demand recognition of the Negro role in A men can history and culture. They want acknowledgment that the American Negro has problems peculiar to his race and unlike those of minority groups in other times. They denounce the existing Better Dry Cleaning for Hie family...

Despite the violence and disorder which has accompanied it, the campaign has won the sympathy of a considerable cross-section of educators. Others regard some demands, and behavior, as arrogant and intolerable and are taking a firm line to restore peace on the campuses. A third group of school officials, seeking to avoid future confrontation, has volunteered curriculum changes and expanded aid to minority students, particularly Negroes. After months of study, and consultation with black student leaders, a Harvard faculty committee recommended establishment of a degree-level course in Afro-American studies. It would :ake its place in the Harvard curriculum along with the traditional majors of college students —languages, .music, literature, sciences. It is expected to be put into effect in September. Among those who consider ;hat Negroes have justice on ;heir side when they ask for slack-oriented academic courses is Joseph Boskin, codi- rector of the American Studies hrogram at the University of Southern California. On Decline Since the Meiji restoration in 1868, when approximately 80 per cent of the Japanese population was engaged in agriculture, there has been a steady decline in its importance.

Exercise Your Memory - - - But Don't Overdo It By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) — About the only exercise some people get Is the exercise of their memory. But it isn't a bad kind of exercise, when it isn't overdone. It may not build bulgy muscles, but it does restore that keystone of health—the mind. Memory also re tores our self- confidence. For it tells us that if we have weathered the ordeals of yesterday, we probably also can survive the turmoils of today and even the terrors of tomorrow. Feel like a little exercise right now? Well, put on your thinking cap and see if you can remember away back when— TTie only way a man could retire fairly early in life was to have 10 strapping sons unafraid of work. Ladies were supposed to swoon or grow faint when confronted by'emergencies, so they carried a small bottle of smelling salts in their purses—just to revive them in case. During tEe heyday of the bobbed-haired, short-skirted flapper during the 1920s, girls w&re strands -of beads long enough to use as a clothesline or to jump rope with. The postman not only knocked twice, but also delivered the mail to your home twice a day, morning and evenings, and a 'irst-class letter could be mailed 'or a mere two cents. When a boy got a job in a drugstore as a soda squirt, one of his big moral problems was the fact that all the other kids promptly expected him to put in dime's worth of ice cream when they bought a five-cent cone.

He merely got a pan of water from the kitchen sink, and calmly dashed it into the yowling child's face, and the screams promptly subsided. Maybe that's where the expression "you're all wet" came from. When a man was sick, he said, "I feel poorly." If be remained home merely because he had a bad cold, he could lose his job. Nobody had heard of the "one-day virus," and if you told your boss you had such an ailment he would automatically put you down as liar and a gokd- bricker. Money was so scarce in most communities that if you were seen coming horn, in a cab, everyone in the block wondered if you had inherited some. Butchers practically gave liver away as it was thought fit food only for cats, health nuts, and people too desperately poor to afford anything else. Families with any pride wouldn't dare put an elderly member into an old folks' home for fear of what the neighbors would think. They key word in the American dream was "opportunity," not "security." The land was full of "go-getters," each of whom honestly felt that if he were given "a fair chance," he could become as rich as Rockefeller. Those were the days! Remember?
