I'm with her 100 per cent. I think it should be left up to the mothers and fathers to tell their children what they should be told and when. I was around 14 years old when I was told all about sex. I think it should be taken out of our schools altogether. I have been told there are several young girls in high school here In Galesburg that are pregnant, and they are in a special class. I wonder if that is the reason they passed the law in Illinois for abortions to be done. I have my children raised, but I have grandchildren, and I certainly don't want to see them taught sex in schools. That is the reason so many young people have disease. Another Silent One Dear Silent, You are entitled to your opinions. That is what this column is all about. However, I don 't agree with them. It is a rare parent with the ability to sit down and discuss sex and anatomy with his child. The course which was offered in the schools required parental permission. Parents who didn't want their children to attend were not forced to send then* children to classes. Much the same information was dispensed to junior high school students over the years through a program instituted by the Knox County YMCA. Parents were required to accompany their child to the classes, and a small fee was charged. Don't you really believe it is better that all youngsters who desire information and have parental permission should be able to get it as part of their regular curriculum? Whether you are willing to face it or not, there is more venereal disease today among young persons simply because there is more sexual contact. VD is spread only one way . and that is not through any book in any course in school. Ignorance has never solved any problem, but parents who (believe it has had the option of keeping their children from learning the facts from the course that has been offered locally. Dear Penny, , After reading Disgusted Granny's letter about MATURE adults who toss little babies around like a sack of potatoes, I would like to say that I have read that such antics can actually bruise a baby's brain . . . among other serious injuries. Once again tell these idiots to play football with a football and not little babies. May I suggest you ask readers to send mail at least once a week in regard to this serious problem, and maybe the thrill-seekers will read them and wake up. Another Disgusted Granny Dear Another, Let 's hope the two mentions we have had will solve the problem. Dear Penny, Why don't the people of this area help out when they are needed at disaster areas like Oquawka and Keithsburg? To me Galesburg residents don't seem to care what happens in other towns and cities, just as long as it isn't Galesburg. If Galesburg was flooded, we'd want others to come and help us. Two days last week local radio stations announced that Oquawka and Keithsburg needed help and food for volunteers; Galesburg didn't respond too well. I know some people are too busy to donate time, but they could donate food. Many people use these cities along the Mississippi River to leave their boats. When the river rises, they only come down to get the boat... the devil with the town. I believe if you help your neighbor, they will help you. A Galesburg Believer in River Towns Dear Believer, Did you check the origin of every packet of food that came into the city? Do you know the hometown of every person that helped sandbagging levees? Do you know what agencies and groups contributed help for the flood area? I have a hunch that Galesburg did about as well as any place, and I base that on the fact that the city usually responds extremely well when there is a need. Thinking of you . . . Penny Send your questions to Penny, in care of the Galesburg Register-Mail. Penny will answer all letters to which a personal reply is desired. As many letters as space permits will be used in this column. Liz Okay, Now Pearl's Down Galesburg Register-Moil, Galesburg, HI.
