Census Bureau stalls* tics indicate that a college education is one of the best "investments" that a young man can make, For example, between the ages of 22 and 65, a person with an eighth-grade education can expect to earn a total of $445,000. Four years of high school,boosts lifetime earnings to JJ663,000, and those with four m more years of college may fexpect to earn $1.125 million by retirement. Earning capability has,long been used as an inducement for a college education-but statistics do not tell the whole story. Far more than earning ability is required today. Business leaders all over the country are warning that private citizens and business executives in particular must participate to a greater extent in public affairs, and must exert more initiative in helping to solve the social and economic problems of our time. The alternative is gradual submergence of our liberties in a sea of governmental bureaucracy and centralized authority. , j; A college degree looked upon •;; solely as a source of superior earning ability often becomes no more than a license to exploit fellow citizens. The horizon of the truly educated man includes deep concern for the political and economic system under which he is privileged to live. - Logan (W. Va.)

SW District Homemakers Meet in Hope By MARY ANtf A USETER Star Feature Writer Wa twftr the phrase, "What's new?", numerous times, but do you ever ask, "Who's new?" Probably not, But there's on« group in town that does. It's called the Newcomers Club. Organized less than a year ago, this newest club In town was the Idea of Mrs, Charles Carey, who originally hailed from CinclnfttU, Ohio. While sh« realized that Hope Is not what Is generally regarded as a "melting pot" of people, there Is some* one moving In and out of our com* munity all the time. The first meeting of the New. comers Club was held last April with 30 charter members. Since then, one-third of the original group has moved away, but to give you an Idea of the large turnover in membership, In September there were 25 who paid the yearly dues of $3, The average monthly attendance is 15. ' , : .-..: •..:. • The Newcomers Club is not affiliated with any other group, and the women in the club range In age from new brides to grandmothers. Their chief desire is to get acquainted with one another, for each one realizes that to get a friend one must be a friend. Though the members enjoy the fellowship of the club, they also want to bo of use to their nowly adopted home, Hope, Arkansas. For that reason the group has offered to be of assistance In the Mental Retardation work that Is currently belngplannedforour community. No one ever wants to "skip a meeting," for there Is something new and exciting every month. The club year begins In Soptem- ber and closes With a picnic In June.

Wlnthrop Rockefeller said Thursday that Arkansas could collect upwards of $4 million a year in revenue by legalizing the sale of mixed drinks and that a mixed drink law should be one of the long range goals In the state. Rockefeller said, however. that if mixed drinks were not legalized the "whole thing" should be closed down. "It's ridiculous that the state of Arkansas is not collecting the revenue, not even by licensing establishments which under the private club laws are dispensing liquor by the drink," the governor said, Rockefeller said a mixed drink bill was needed but added that did not mean it would be included in his special session call planned for early May, He said he had no intention of "being jockeyed into a position which is strictly political, 1 ' "Some of the wiser political heads would say it would be suicide for somebody" to Intro* duce such legislation at this time, the governor saleJ, Rockefeller said that if a mixed drink bill were passed during Ws administration it would have to be written "so <jjear that enforcement would b* without question, 4 ' The governor sJso predicted that there would be a court test if Atty.

Conference on Gold in Washington By STERLING F. GREEN Associated Press Writer WASH I NOT ON (AP) America's six allies In the London gold pool converged on Washington today for a two-day conference seeking to solve the gravest global money crisis In 40 years. As the central bankers assembled, a congressional drive developed to force a greater fiscal austerity on this country—and thus to generate, It was hoped, greater confidence In the dollar. Tho plan calls for not only the deflationary 10 per cent tax surcharge 5 asked by President Johnson, but a multlblllton-dol- lar slash In Johnson's fiscal 1969 spending budget—a cut Imposed on him by uct of Congress. That congressional move reportedly had the approval of Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., the potent chairman of the House Ways and Means corn* •ttUtttfrf." *, ' - ;' , Mills has admitted nothing publicly but Is known to Have conferred at length with Chairman George H. Mahon, D-Tex., of the House Appropriations Committee. Mahon favors the double-edged plan. But It remained to be seen whether those moves, buttressing the secret seven-power talks In the mausoleunvllke Federal Reserve Board building, would dissuade profit-hungry gold speculators from resuming next week their frantic assault on the dollar in the world's gold markets. The crisis was generally regarded as the most severe since the stock market collapse of 1929. Airtight security was assured for the weekend conference of the central bankers of the United States, Britain, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands anri Switzerland. The session was to start at a 1 p.m. luncheon. The only com- munique, a board spokesman said, will be Issued at the meeting's close sometime Sunday afternoon. U.S. officials exuded cairn confidence, meanwhile, that the nation's gold reserves will outlast the nerve and the resources of the gold hoarders who, for a frenzied fortnight, have been de- mandtng gold for dollars-ami hoping to enrich themselves by breaking down the dollar, keystone currency of the free world. Kennedy Announces Candidacy Wife Early to Write Off Mr. Johnson WASHINGTON (AP) - Sett. . Robert F. Kennedy of New York plunged Into the DemoeMtie presidential nomination contest, today as ft second peace eandi- date opposing President Johnson's renomination. Kennedy's announcement of his candidacy pits Mm against« fellow Roman Catholic and Viet* nam war critic, Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy of Minnesota, In the uphill battle with Johnson for delegate votes at the party's An-' gust convention In Chicago. Johnson has not yet said tm plans to seek a second elective term. But Domocrallc National Chairman John M. Bailey ami Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey have said repeatedly the President will be the nominee again. Kennedy's belated announce* mont, made at a televised news conference, came after Me* Carthy had run a strong race against a Johnson write-In In last Tuesday's New Hampshire primary. WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Robert F. Konnedy charged Into the contest today to wrest the Democratic presidential nomination from President Johnson, saying tho country Is on "a perl- lous course." Tho New York senator's entry Into tho race at a crowded televised news conference pits him against a fellow Roman Catholic and Vietnam war critic, Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy of Minnesota. Kennedy said his entry against Jqhnsoti, the man chosen by his assassinated brother was not in opposition to the individual but to fits policies^ But he atWed the only way to change the "dlsasterous, divisive" policies of the Johnson administration Is to oppose the man himself. Kennedy said he will enter his name In tho June 2 California primary, and also those In Oregon May 28 awl Nebraska May 17 because the laws of those states require that his name go on the ballot. Ho stated ul tho same Urn a he intends to "bath support and expand his (McCarthy's) valiant campaign." He called for the biggest possible majorities for McCarthy In primaries next month In Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts; Kennedy said he nude clear to McCarthy th-it "my candidacy would not be In opposition to his, but In harmony," "My desire is not to divide the strength of those forces seeking a change, but to Increase," tho New Yorker senator said. "Finally, my decision reflects no personal animosity or disrespect toward President Johnson. He served President Kennedy with the upnv.st loyalty and wus extrenudy kind to me and members of my family In the difficult months which followed the events of November 1963," "1 run because I am convinced that this country is on a perilous course and because 1 have such strong feelings about what must be done that I am obliged to do alt I can," Kennedy said. "I do not tightly dismiss the dangers and difficulties o| challenging an Incumbent president," he added in Ws formal announcement before a national television audience from the oW Senate Office Bui Wing Caucus Room. By DOUGLAS B. CORNELL Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON <"AP) - It could be a mite early to start writing off Lyndon Johnson as president even though headlines in the '#ake of tht New Hampshire primary shrieked of "vulnerability" and "dift-at." For one thing: It's a little hard lo see b;w anytxuly can lose an election when he isn't on the ballot, especially when hfc cows up with 43 p-.-r cent of tht vote on a write-in basis— its Johnson did. But this is tven rn -rt impfjr- tan': When the waa involved is president of the- United States he has big advantages built into a, big power base that com^s with the office. And he can use them to the hilt in primary general election campaigns. Oiarfc Pilot Helped Plane BLOOMINGTON, HI.
