The Army also has acted to assign the right men to the right military jobs so there will be no repetition of the square-peg-in- round-hole situations spotlighted by Government Accounting Office and congressional investigators in the wake of the Berlin-crisis mobilization of about 147,000 Army, tary skills. Other gripes were voiced by men who contended they shouldn't have been tapped because of family responsibilities, critical occupations, or other reasons they felt entitled them to exemption. A House subcommittee late last month accused the Army of laxity and inability to pick the best prepared men and units for a limited mobilization. One Army authority acknowledged that his service had been geared for all-out rather than partial mobilization before ths Berlin crisis.

It has been a long summer, seeming longer, no doubt, than most In certain areas of the county where the drought had nothing to do with rain, though little of ithat fell either. i However, If all goes well, and .we're kcepinc our fingers crossed. i Monday shoud mark the end of our particular ordeal for on that day the Bookmobile which has ; been in dry-dock virtually a 11 ! summer, is due to roll apain. i Now, this news may not mean :much to some of you, served as you are by a branch or Ihe central library, but to a large segment of the county it will be as welcome as a gullywasher after a long dry spell. And to us who serve on the Bookmobile getting under way again will not only be a tremen- jdous relief but a very real plea- jsure as well. For there is Bome| thing peculiarly gratifying about I being the means of bringing books | to people who would not have Ithem — at least, not as many of ithem— if it were not for us. The !welcome we receive is a soothing jbalm to the ego. [ Our summer of woe and frus- j Iration proved one thing — the ] people want us and appreciate cur 'service and miss us sadly when we are unable to pursue our schedule. The telephone calls, 'all bearing over the wires the same iplea. "Aren't you coming today?" attesed to that. Through all Ihe years during j which the county has provided mobile service there has never been so long a period without a bookmobile of some sort. Even back in Ull when the Library had barely opened and no vehicle could be obtained because of the war. Librarian Bernice Hurst used to carry books to various points by train. Since then we have braved all sorts of perils, splashing through flood waters that covered highways on several oc- jcasions, ploughing through a snow I storm tor it seemed like one to us, unaccustomed as we are to, snow storms i on at lenst one trip. True, we didn't make our scheduled Monday trip last Septem-' her when Carla blow in, but we were on the road while she was still trailing vestiges of her awesome glory and reached at least one slop bofore Ihe electricity was functioning. We have always prided ourselves that like the U.S. | mail nothing amid stop us on our "appointed rounds." But we didn't reckon with an ailing transmission that seemingly refused to respond to treat - ment. After ail, we are just a bunch of women. We acknowledge freely that we know something of tx»ks, but mechanical devices are beyond our scope. < As tor me. I have never boon able to understand how (he tele- [phone works, and I haven't the [least iili'a what a transmission; even looks like, much less what its (unction is. It certainly never occurred to me that one would influence my life so directly and . !for so lotij; a period. Without Ihe aid of \V. W. Me-i Clendon, whose official title is Counly mechanic, but whom we i regard as County angel, we would ! probably still be floundering in lour transmission nightmare. : And if there are any orchids to be passed out hereabouts, he getsi ,our nomination. He came to us in our hour of need through the benevolent offices of Commissioner Dixie Brown and since then he ; has been an ever present help inj time of trouble. Now that we are rolling again after being grounded for so long , would perhaps be a good time to' consider the effectiveness and the ; real function of the Bookmobile; service. There are misconceptions : a bout it. Many times through the years ; w-e have had adults peer timidly: in the door to inquire, "Do you! have books for grown-ups, or is the Bookmobile just for children?" Of course we do — hive books for adults, that is — as many and varied as we can carry. Actually, we feel that our service is needed by adults even more than by the youngsters, w h o, after all, do have access to school libraries. This idea may have arisen be-i •cause we stop at the schools but that is simply because we need one central spot where all can be served and we could reach few of the children at best if we stop- : ped elsewhere. ; For, of course, we do have chil- '• dren's books, also — books forj i teenagers, intermediates, primary j 'youngsters, and pre-schoolers. Notj that we are trying to take the place of the school libraries or even to augment them. Our function, as we see it. Is entirely separate from the school. We wish to provide material for the independent reader so that he may pursue his interests or seek out his entertainment independently. We wish the youngsters' use of the Bookmbile to be as free as possible, as little hedged about with rules and regulations, j For this reason we are trying to| get away from the old class-room; loan type of check-out where the! teacher did much of the selection. Tliis does not mean that we do not welcome teacher help and advice. Nor does it mean that we, ourselves, do not offer suggestions as to suitable reading. It simply means that we want the child to have as much freedom of selection as possible, and that ha should regard the Bookmobile as a place he goes to seek what h«, himself, wants and in no way as a part of his poor little organized, regimented life. We make every effort (within our budget) to have something for everyone on the Bookmobile. We know that everyone is welcome. And we hope that tomorrow will begin another HO years or so of. uninterrupted service. So, to paraphrase Shakespeare (I think) may the winds stand fair for Sweeny on the morning of Sept. 10. The way I feel now we'll get there if we have to walk.
