Daily Times Herald EDITORIALS Saturday, May 18, 1974 Illegal Aliens The use of illegal aliens as cheap agricultural labor in California is an old story. It is a continuing story, and if we can believe Cesar Chavez one of the most tawdry episodes in that story is currently being played out. As head of the United Farm Workers of America, Chavez has special reason for concern at the influx of illegal aliens from Mexico. He sees this as a threat to the jobs of American farm workers, and says it "has reached epidemic proportions in the last few weeks." Chavez makes the disquieting charge that in effect the Border Patrol is looking the other way and permitting this to happen. To allow growers to import cheap labor from Mexico, he claims, there has been "a deliberate misallocation of Border Patrol officers away from California." This is a serious accusation. It is particularly so in light of Chavez's assertion that illegal aliens have displaced 60 to 70 per cent of the local workers in most areas and even a higher percentage in strike areas.The gravity of the situation he describes is heightened by an additional element: as Chavez and others have noted, there is danger of contagious diseases spreading because many of the illegal aliens fear being reported if they seek medical aid. It would not be fair to make prejudgments. Other — the growers, the Border Patrol — deserve to be heard from. Perhaps the best thing would be for Congress to look into the matter, as Chavez proposes. Spanish There are rising indications that henceforth a much more careful effort will be made to get an accurate count of Americans of Spanish-speaking origin. This has been increasingly demanded in recent years in light of evidence that there had been serious undercounts. These demands are taking on new force. One factor in this is that the Census Bureau has announced a sharp upward revision of its 1970 count — from 9.1 million to 10.6 million. On the heels of that action, the Civil Rights Commission has issued a report taking issue with census methods and conclusions. In this report the CRC says: "We believe there is strong evidence that the Spanish-speaking background population was substantially undercounted." The Cabinet Committee on Opportunities for Spanish-speaking People adds its voice to the complaint. That agency has said the total of Americans in this category is actually a third higher than the Census Bureau's figure. The stakes are considerable; much more than ethnic pride is involved. Numerous federal programs rely on census figures as the basis for allocations. It is very likely that Mexican-American and Puerto Rican groups have received less help of various kinds than they would have had statistics been more accurate. The unfairness of this is obvious. The Census Bureau is under an obligation to exercise special care in this regard henceforth. Men to Mars There are many obstacles to realization of the dream of sending men to Mars. The technological problems of such an enterprise would be formidable, as would be the costs. It is interesting to find, however, that in the opinion of the doctor best qualified to know there seems to be no reason why men could not withstand the round trip space journey of 16 to 24 months. Dr. Charles A. Berry, who until recently was the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's chief astronaut physician, says he doesn't "see anything limiting as far as man is concerned." This view is based on experience with prolonged weightlessness on the Skylab missions, the longest of which lasted 12 weeks. Though certain precautions are indicated, especially to replace calcium loss in the bones, Berry thinks the Mars trip is feasible from a physiological standpoint. That judgment brings this most dramatic of human adventures thus far a bit closer to reality. Timely Quotes — i "How does a Republican campaign this year? What's his platform! Economy in government? That's a joke. Law and order? What is our platform?" —Rep, John M. Ashbrook, R-Ohio, blaming Watergate for the planned retirement of numberous Republican congressmen. Advice Pestered to Death By Abigail Van Huron DEAR AH BY: I have been ;i widower for only ten months, and all I want is to be left alone. I am constantly pestered by widows, divorcees and wives whose husbands don't pay any attention to them. Also, people with the "have-I-got-a-girl-for-you!" routine. You wouldn't believe the propositions I get. When I try to bow out politely, they say: "What's the matter, are you some kind of queer?" Last week a young neighbor from across the street came over with a pie and a story about how lonely she was with her kids in school all day and her husband on the road. Then came the proposition. I finally had to ask her to leave. This morning while taking a shower I heard someone breaking through my front door. It was the lady next door. She said she just happened to see me through my bathroom window, and I looked like maybe I wasn't feeling well so she came over to see if there was anything she could do for me. I had a terrible time getting rid of her. After that. I pulled down my shades and bolted my door. I'm a prisoner in my own house! I even put a sign on my front door "Were you invited?" But everyone thinks I mean somebody else. I am not particularly goodlooking. I try not to hurt anyone's feelings, but I don't want anyone pestering me. What should I do? NO NAME OR ADDRESS Homemoking DEAR NO: You've put out a sign, bolted your door, and given no one the slightest encouragement. All that's left is a watchdog and a barbed wire fence. DEAR ABBY: I am 49 and going through my menopause. I have hounded my gynecologist for help, but I can't get any satisfaction from him, so I'm asking you. How can I be absolutely sure I won't get pregnant? (I have three grandchildren!) My husband is 50, and we're not sex maniacs or anything like that, but we do get together once in a while, and I am living in fear that I'll find myself pregnant with a change-of-life baby. I have told my doctor that, and he said: "Don't worry—women your age seldom get pregnant." Abby.'l don't want to take any chances, but my doctor says I don't need to take any precautions. Is he right? Am I foolish to be concerned? Can you recommend something to ease my mind? NEEDS ADVICE DEAR NEEDS: You need more than advice. You need another doctor. Even though the chances of your becoming pregnant are small, it's possible! I don't blame you for wanting to be absolutely sure. If you don't know another gynecologist, your Planned Parenthood Clinic can give you competent medical advice and recommend the most ideal method of contraception for a woman your age. Good luck. Who Has the Key? By Folly Cramer POLLY'S PROBLEM DEAR POLLY — Twice recently I have locked myself out of my house and it is a frightening experience when you cannot get in touch with someone who has a key. Putting an extra key under a run or on a small nail outside somewhere makes it just too easy for a burglar. Other than keeping a spare key in one's pocket I do not know what to do. I tried leaving my key at a neighbor's house but often no one is at home. I would like to know what other readers do about this. —CLAIRE. Religion DEAR POLLY — My pet Peeve is with furnace air filters. They do not come in the right sixes to fit in the furnace doors in trailers. I can #et the right width but no length so have used two or three cut to fit. It seems they could make the right si/.e for such use. —MARGIE. DEAR POLLY - I think the reason Mrs. D.F.F. cannot get the paint to stick is because of the old paint left under it. She could use a commercial paint remover by following the directions that come on it and then use fine sandpaper following the grain of the wood. —ETHEL. Education at 5:30 By David Poling Last spring'a group of militants demanded a hearing at a high school on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona. Several car loads of Wounded Knee participants had been campaigning across the West, seeking support for the seige of the Oglala Sioux in South Dakota. The Indian student body gathered to hear the complaints and gun-fire vocabulary of the demonstrators, complete with an appeal to leave school and get with the action at Wounded Knee. The assembled students heard the group out (more than half were non-Indian camp followers) and then one tall high school student demanded to know why he should spend any more time on this theme. Here were unemployed drop-outs telling .him how to live! Here were outsiders taking up valuable class time, their main achievement for the day having been flying the U.S. flag upside down. This young man had had enough. He did not get up at 5:30 in the morning, travel an hour to school to endure this sort of scene. End of meeting, back to education. The pursuit of education is perhaps the highest priority for native Americans. Dr. Roe Lewis, Pima churchman and Indian statesmen, put it this way in Phoenix recently: "You nave to live in two worlds — the world Daily Times Herald 50« Niirlh Cnurl Sln-rl r.irrnll Inw.-i |i:iil\ l-.Mrpi .Sumla\s ,HII| lliilidii)s ulhrr lhan Washing- Inns Itirlhilai .mil Vrti-ran >. l>av In Ihc llrrald .IAMKSW WILSON.

It is hard, it requires the mastery of English and the understanding of urban life. You cannot live in isolation, retreating to another century or nostalgic setting." Over the years, the respected leaders of the Indian community have pointed to this road. In 1879 Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce said:-"Let me be a free to work, free to trade, free to choose my teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to think and talk and act for myself — and I will obey every law or submit to the penalty". Right now two colleges are flourishing on Navajo lands. Navajo Community College, near Ft. Defiance, Ariz, has an enrollment approaching 500. In a lovely, almost enthralling western setting, the arts, skills and trades of the Indian culture are pursued and cherished. Many students look beyond this two-year experience for career development and community leadership, and hope to be part of the future leadership of the Navajo nation. At Ganado, a historic and famous site for Christian mission sponsored by the Presbyterian Church, a new school has succeeded in attracting first- rate educators and highly motivated students. George P. Lee, president of the College of Ganado, knows personally the tough track that many must experience: "Life on the Navajo reservation is full of poverty and despair. Unemployment often reaches as high as 60 per cent, with family incomes generally below $2,000. Homes are usually one-room log dwellings called hogans — no electricity or plumbing. Most are devoid of books and magazines. Fewer than 18 per cent of the Indian students go on to college." Today, some 80 full-time students are joined with nearly 300 day students at Ganado. Four years ago there were just 50 enrolled at this Indian educational center. Said Lee bluntly, "At Ganado, we do n.ot demonstrate nor advocate militancy. Students are concerned with learning. The college offers the Indian an opportunity to learn at his own pace, on his own land". In 1879, Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce stated: "Treat all men alike. Give them all the same law. Give them all an even chance to live and grow." The young Indians today are living out this conviction, starting at 5:30 in the morning. Published by the Students of Kuemper High School Vol. 11 Carroll, Iowa, Daily Times Herald, Saturday. May 18,1974 No. 35 Fine Arts are Shown This Weekend The annual Fine Arts Festival began Friday, May 17 with a concert by the band, chorus, and orchestra. The remainder of the activities will be held Saturday, May 18. from 7:30-9:00 p.m.. and from 1:00-4:00 p.m. on Sunday, the 19th. The different departments included in the Fine Arts Festival are: speech, drama, music, Industrial Arts. English. Home Economics, and Art. The art exhibition, under the direction of Mr. Dean Kollasch, will be concerned with woodcuts, silkscreen, sketches, three-dimensionals. and pottery, along with a demonstration on the pottery wheel. Mr. Kollasch feels the exhibit is a good chance for the students to display their art in a public forum. The industrial art department will display individual projects the students have made throughout the year. Exceptional projects cited were a hexagon end table, a cedar chest, a hanging lamp, grandfather clocks, desks, and a bar. Mr. Moyer, instructor, stated, "I feel the Festival is very worthwhile because it shows an appreciation of what the students have done all year. The projects show the amount of imagination and capabilities the students have." The combined speech and drama classes will put on a melodrama entitled "Her Heart Belongs to Heartburn" or "Unsteady Time that Stagger." The play will begin at 2:30 Sunday afternoon. The Intramural Speech winners will also be giving their speeches Sunday. The home economics department will display projects in foods, clothing, home decorating and home crafts. Question of the Week: How Has Spring Hit You? By Joan Schreck and Pat Schmitz As. another school year nears an end at Kuemper, many students are finding it hard to keep their minds on assignments. Spring has once again bloomed in the halls of Kuemper, so we decided to find out how some of the students and faculty were hit. Spring fever hasn't hit Brian Kanne yet. Brian says. "Winter has still got me. It's cold, man." Bill Prebeck is happy that spring is here. He stated. "I like to run outside now. It keeps me in shape for track." Kevin Hale jokingly replied. "I've got spring pneumonia." Daryl Reiling gave us a more serious answer saying. "Everything smells so good. It makes me want to ride my motorcycle." Chuck Pille turned his fancy to girls when the fever hit him and, isn't all upset about catching it. Lisa Slater, like many other students, commented, "I wish school would hurry up and let out. It's too nice to have to be indoors all day." A reliable source tells us that Jean Brickman has quit wearing socks to school. Is ahtlete's foot the cause of this? Gary Mooney simply stated, "It's hard to stay in school and concentrate when you could be outside." An anonymous victim stated. "Spring makes me do all kinds of weird things, like sneaking out of school without a hall pass." (Now does that sound like Kelly Beiter?) Congratulations to all those who received awards and recognition at Awards Day yesterday, especially the Valedictorian and Salutatorian for 1974. the top ten scholars of all classes, and the new Student Council leaders. With only one day ot school left, the seniors would like to formally tell everyone goodbye, and to eat their hearts out the rest of the week in school.
