Bow Not to Anger ()//,..,•> J\ef allied The discretion of a mandefer- reth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression. (Proverb 19:11) If ever a person set an example of using discretion when others were determined to destroy him, it was Jesus Christ. He turned with a warm and forgiving heart realizing that they were not fully responsible for their actions. Evn at the torturing, grueling and painful ordeal on the Cross, Christ look down at his persecutors with compassion, saying, "Father, forgive them for! they know not what they do." So many times, a person is ridiculed and pre-judged before the true picture is revealed. Surface judgements and speculations has led many a person to lash out at his neighbor. If only these people, who probably mean well, would not be'hasty, but take time to search for the truth.

Education Today By ROBERT STRAND SAN RAFAEL, Calif.; (UPP — A new but old-fashioned school teaches reading, 'riting and 'rithmetic right out of the McGuffey Reader and claims to teach first graders up to 10 times as many words as public schools. . The success of the 3R schools is shown by its 400 pupils who ride to class by bus daily from as far as 40 miles. Their tuition is $900 a year and the owner makes a profit. Parents have included Lord Snow, the British scientist and author while teaching at the University of California, and Charles Schultz, the cartoonist of Peanuts. What attracts the parents is a school that i sticks strictly to fundamentals. Dances, PTAs, art and music are voided as "frills." Athletics are largely restricted to calisthenics. "Don't worry about life adjustment," says the 3R school's founder, James W. Kirchansky; "Give' a child the tools first, and then he will adjust." Public School Teacher Kirchansky, 50, an ex- paratrooper, was fired as a public school teacher in 1955 Coming Events TUESDAY . AAUW - 7;30>p.m., DalliceDarst 329 N.

(UPI) Citizens of Uie world's highly developed communities only recently have become concerned with overpopulation and birth control, hut some peasant populations have long practiced birth control (.o limit their numbers.' Furthermore, declared an international group of anthropologists, demographers and physicians, some peasant communities appear to have higher aspirations and achieve more in life than people in similar communities which lend to "leave everything to tiod. 1 including liirth control. Drawing upon nearlv -10 vears of ri ^earch among native populations of Guatemala. India. Taiwan and Central Africa, the scientists concluded that '"peasant people want and love children; it follows that they want live healthy children and normally employ every means available to insure their children's health." "This includes new means hrought about by modern medicine and sanitary practices, if it is proved to them that these innovations are truly helpful rather than merely bothersome. "'People in general do not breed indiscriminately, except in rare cases of extreme hopelessness. , '"If they are able to exercise any control over their economic situation, then they normally exercise some control over their reproductive behavior. Most women, for example, seem to want to space their children reasonably far apart in order to adequately care for each one.'" I b Leatherman-Mor ris Dependable Ambulance Service 314 North Main Street ^ DIAL 875- 744 S Tipton "because of my big mouth." He tested his ideas tutoring youngsters privately during the summer, and opened up full- time in 1958 in a storefront. Now he has a chain of three schools, built of unpainted concrete, with a physical plant worth $350,000 on which he pays taxes. He employs one teacher for every 15 pupils. . "There are no shortcuts to learning," says Kirchansky. "We make no pretense this has to be a joyfest. On the other hand, it can be joyful." The McGuffey Reader, brought out in 1887, is utilized along with numerous other books, mainly British. "If you develop one good book, why replace it," asked Kirchansky. "With the exception of science and history, there's no need to update texts every other year." Believes Children Crippled Kirchansky believes 80 per cent of Amrican children are cripples in their reading ability. Among adults of the postwar generation, he says half, including upper middle class persons, are functional illiterates in that they cannot understand a newspaper editorial naee. The 3R schools teach reading by phonetics as practiced 30 years ago, and the McGuffey Reader plunges first graders into stories of King Arthur, Romulus and Remus and Joan of Arc. , Kirchansky claims the first graders learn up to 5,000 words by June, a contrast with conventional schools where he says 500. words is considered very good; . •'• ' "A teacher should not be responsible for discipline," he says. "That's the parents'job." So if a first grader engages in a fight, he is suspended for a couple of days. If it happens again, he's expelled— with no tuition rebate. "I have the loot," says Kirchansky. , "I have a big advantage." "If everybody walked out, I would be dead, but they don't." A that person with love and understanding, offering a helping hand , instead of a two-edged sword, there would be so much less hurt in the world today. But even the condemned must not bow down to anger . .'.he must rise above the inflicted wounds of the heart and show forgiveness and compassion upon his enemy. Certainly our actions have at times caused pain and sorrow to God yet He extended mercy and pardon, surrounding us with a penetrating love. Why then can not we live by this example and use discretion in our actions towards others. . Anger, hate and bitterness breeds a depressed and sorrowful state of the soul whether we are the offender or the offended. Why should we dwell in this state of mind, when we can know true joy and peace of mind by a simple act of forgiveness.

As with the rest of Helen Help. Us!, it welcomes laughs but won't dodge a serious question with a brush-off. Send your teenage questions to YOUTH ASKED FOR IT, care of Helen Help Us! this newspaper. 1 Dear Helen: ! I voted for the first time this year and I still don't know if I voted right or not. How is anordinanry person to tell, what with all : the stuff that comes out for and against every darn candidate? I read one newspaper, or hear one paid ad on TV, and I think "This is the one." Then there's the rebuttal, with nasty slams and I wonder, "Can this be so?" Most of the candidates supported SOME of my ideas, and most of them didn't measure ; up in other areas. Then, after they're elected, they don't measure up at all sometimes. How can we get unbiased opinions and true facts, especially if we're new at voting? — YOUNG U. S. CITIZEN Dear Citizen; Enrolling in a political science class helps, for there you get the history of politics, study philosophies of the various parties, and learn about behind^-the scenes ploys. We vote wisely or unwisely in proportion to how much time we're willing to spend on research. We aren't always right in our assessments, but we'll come closer if we listen to (and read) all sides, weed out as much puff-stuff as possible, and choose candidates for their integrity as well as their aim. ~ H. Dear Helen: Most girls wouldn't think this is a problem but it is to us. My friend and I are too popular with boys! Both of us have gone steady about seven times since July. So the girls are jealous of us! We aren't boy crazy, but we don't have any friends except BOYS. No matter what we do, the guys cheer us on, and that turns the girls off. Neither of us has gone farther than "first base," but rumors are started about us being pregnant, etc. We aren't pretty, at lease we don't think so. We even try to discourage boys but they keep coming back. Helen, what's your advice about getting rid of boy friends and gaining girl friends? « TWO EIGHTH GRADERS Dear Two: Your biggest problem is. — you're eighth graders. I mean you've reached that Age-13 Plateau when most girls are very unsure of themselves, therefore liable to resent those who succeed where they fail. -Perhaps you've matured faster than others. At any rate, you've learned the secret-of attracting those cagey junior hi males and, naturally, the girls will be jealous. (And you can't help lording it over them a bit ~ especially when they put you down.) Try sharing. When the boys flock around, call a few girls over to join the crowd. Give a party, asking girls who haven't been too snobby. Get the word out that you aren't scalp hunters, but would like to share. And cheer up! Next year things will be better --or maybe worse, because you'll have lots more competition then! — H. Dear-Helen: I was another one who rote to "The Tigers" and "met" a very fine guy, serving in Vietnam. But I haven't heard from him in months, though I've written several letters. How can I find out if he's alive? -'- ANITA , Dear Anita: ; • . If your letters weren't returned to you, then assume your Vietnam Tiger is alive and well and has probably found another pussycat. ... .Pity!--H.
