Before mid-September the annual exodus of young people to institutions of advanced education will begin. A record number of Decatur County young people will attend colleges and universities, preparatory schools and educational institutions which offer training in specialized skills. This reflects favorable economic conditions in Decatur County. Added emphasis on higher education and specialized training indicates a public realization of the benefit to young people. Only a few decades ago, most young people regarded a high school diploma as the extent of a normal educational requirement. Now, a high school diploma is a minimum requirement of industry, in many instances. Those who find it possible to continue their education on collegiate or specialized level gain preference in employment opportunity. Young people should be encouraged to finish high school. Those who drop out face a serious handicap. Standards of colleges are higher than they were a quarter of a century ago. Young people seeking to enter college should take subjects that are geared to meeting college standards. Teen-age high school students who are not contemplating future college studies usually do not have as difficult an academic assignment in high school as those who are preparing for college. Those who are contemplating employment by industry should not neglect opportunity to study courses in mathematics, as knowledge of this subject will be important in any future industrial work. As indicated by this issue of The Greensburg Daily News, interest is centered now on the back-to-school theme. Summer is almost at an end. In only a short time educational institutions on all levels will become a scene of activity as the fall term commences. Money, Food Poured of LA. Editor Petitions To Be Cleared of Contempt Charges By JOHN DART LOS ANGELES (UPI)—Riot- torn Los Angeles moved rapidly toward recovery tod'ay despite a cross-fire of recriminations over the causes of the nation's worst Negro uprising oj the century. City and state authorities poured food and money into the stricken Watts district where 15,000 police and National Guardsmen smashed an unprecedented rampage that left 35 dead. Reports of trouble in the riot zone dwindled sharply Wednesday night and early today. Police said an 18-year-old Negro youth was shot in the head when he fan out of a burned factory carrying a table. His condition was listed as critical. In another section of the riot area, a report of a sniper proved unfounded. Disagreed Over Cause Gov. Edmund G. Brown and Mayor Samuel Yorty, meanwhile, disagreed over what caused the rioting whicih left 35 persons dead, nearly 900 injured and nearly $200 million in property damage. Their dispute was rapidly becoming a public feud. Dr. Martin Luther King, both cheered and jeered by Negroes in a tour of the riot area Wednesday, sharply criticized Police Chief William H. Parker for inflaming tensions in the riot area. He also met with Brown for 90 minutes. After the meeting, the governor said "absolutely not" when asked if he would try to have Parker ousted from his job. "I don't believe he has the slightest bit of prejudice in him," Brown said of Parker. "His zeal for law enforcement could be misinterpreted as prej- NOBLESVTL3JE, Ind. (UPI)— Special Judge Robert McNevin today received a petition asking that James T. Neal, editor of the Noblesvffie Ledger be cleared of criminal contempt of court charges filed by Hamilton Circuit County Judge Edward F. New. McNevin, a former deputy attorney general, said he would decide later whether to conduct a hearing Aug. 30. Phillip C. Klotz, Neal's attorney, told McNevin at today's hearing that the 20-page brief offered by Neal would contain all of his pleadings. New contended that Neal committed contempt nf court in his newspaper column by publishing a "disdainful, scumlous and contemptible article." The article had criticized a ^crackdown on traffic law violators as "an excellent example of shotgun justice." Neal's brief contained a number of court citations concerning freedom of the press. Contentions in the brief were: —Neal was improperly arrested in violation of his civil rights. —Neal was held without a hearing in violation of the 14th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution and also the Indiana Constitution. —New failed to require Neal to show cause why he should not be held in contempt of court. —New did not follow customary court procedure in issuing the contempt citation. —Neal's editorial comment was altered by New to supply his own interpretation. —The Neal column was not in contempt of court but was in accordance with the freedom of the press to comment and criticize judicial actions.
