UNIFAX Arizona Censors Textbooks Area 4-H Clubs, County's Fair Aided By Legislation PHOENIX, Ariz. (UPI) The Arizona Board of Educa tion is considering new rules to outlaw textbooks considered offensive, embarrassing or that encourage breaking the law. But opponents say this could mean. deleting such things as the Boston Tea Party from history books. "What constitutes disruptive studies and who interprets it?" said opponent Thomas Beauchamp of Flagstaff, Ariz., a high school teacher and president of the Arizona Education Association. Distort History "Thomas Paine could be classified as disruptive. This could distort the true image of what history is like," Beauchamp said at a board hearing Monday. The Arizona Federation of Teachers also spoke out against the proposed rules, which it said would put teachers in the position of having to weigh "whether to teach about Thomas Jefferson or the Boston Tea Party." The board adjourned for the day without reaching a decision. The guidelines, contained in a policy manual to be issued to local school boards, say in part: . "Textbooks presented for adoption shall not include language or illustrations which are blatantly offensive; would cause embarrassing situations in the classrooms; and would cause interference in the learning, atmosphere of the classroom ... or contribute to civil disorder, social strife or flagrant disregard of the law." Opponents said this could mean the banning of a wide range of school subjects, including social and political demonstrations, and would lead to many lawsuits. , ROSEVILLE - Gov.

When I went back for the reading the nurse told me that I had been exposed to it. She told me not to worry, that she would get in touch with me for an Xray That was over a month ago. I wonder if I should go and get an X-ray on my own, or could you recommend a tonic for me. I have always been small. Dear Reader — The skin test fcr tuberculosis is not specific.

Using a weak dilution for the first test, if a person gets a raised spot which can be felt, of greater than 10 millimeters in diameter between the second and third day, then it is likely that the person had been infected with tuberculosis. That, however, does not mean that the tuberculosis is active. What you have left is evidence of an immune-type reaction to the tuberculosis infection, and that's why yoi' get the skin response, If the spot is smaller than 10 millimeters, the test is consid ered doubtful, and if no reaction at all occurs, a stronger test Gym Program Opens Monday MONMOUTH - John Bickell, new head football coach at Monmouth High School, announced today that the open gym program at the school for all students of the district will be opened again next Monday.

Gary Mayor Seeking Aid For Africans GARY, ind. (DPI) - Mayor Richard G.. Hatcher- says the city council will meet in an emergency session today to act on his resolution recommending support for six West African countries in the midst of a five- year drought. Hatcher said at a news conference Monday that the resolu tion "encourages all people of good will in Gary to support the relief efforts and to assist in whatever way possible." He said the relief effort was being set up in conjunction with Operation PUSH, which is headed by the Rev. Jesse Jackson. A van will be set up in downtown Gary, Hatcher said, for people to bring dried foodstuffs. "An African relief fund is being set up at the Gary National Bank to help pay the cost in transporting the supplies to the six (African) countries," he said. Jackson said there is a critical need for money as well as food and supplies. "The U.S. government has contributed $21 million in aid to the six countries, but the countries are being charged $1,000 per hour for the airplanes that transport the supplies," Jackson said. "The countries just can't afford that kind of money." Cocaine Ring Member Gets Prison Term EAST ST. LOUIS, 111.

Of Johnson Phone Bug WASHINGTON (UPI)-Jack Valenti said today President Lyndon B. Johnson occasionally recorded his telephone conversations without knowledge of the other person but said no White House offices were bugged during the Johnson administration. Valenti, a close aide to Johnson before becoming head of the Motion Picture Association, said Johnson had "the equipment to record phone calls which he did selectively particularly when he wanted to record a decision ^he had made. "But it was not automatic," Valenti said in an interview on the NBC-TV Today Show. "It had to be activated." Asked if the other person would know about the taping, Valenti said, "To my knowledge, no." As for other types of recording of presidential conversations, Valenti said; "To my certain knowledge .n" there was no bugging of an# meeting room or any room in the White House. There was no bugging of any meeting nor equipment of any kind. "The proof of this is"when the President (Johnson) wrote his book, the only notes he had were my handwritten notes." Safety Council Issues Warning On Nightwear CHICAGO (UPI) - The National Safety Council. Monday urged parents to be vigilant when buying smaiM 'children's nightwear despite upcoming federal regulations requiring miame-iretardant materials for the nigihtwear. Parents must be attuned to the fact that the government requirement, although laudatory, covers only children's sleepwear manufactured after the July 29 deadline," said Phil Dykstra, manager of the coumaii's home department. He said "Pajamas, nightgowns and robes manufactured 'before that time may still be sold legally in the stores. It is even more imperative for parentis to realize that the vast majority of children's garments are still not flame-retardant and that care must be taken to keep the fabrics away from sources of ignition." dose }s used to see if one can induce a skin reaction. If a fairly strong dose has to be used, and no skin reaction occurs, then it's unlikely that the person has ever had a tuberculosis infection or, for that matter, any other related type of infection. Other Infections By related type of infection I'm referring to the various other myobaoterium infections that are closely related to the same organism that causes tuberculosis. These other organisms are usually harmless. The tuberculosis organism is not strictly a germ or strictly a fungus, and for this reason has a hybrid classification name of myobacterium. Because of the lack of specificity of reactions and the importance of the strength of the test does used, there isn't any way I can be absolutely certain what your test means. However, since the possibilities are that the nurse used first strength test, and that you had a spot 48 to 72 hours later that was greater than 10 millimeters in diameter, under those circumstances, I would think that you have been exposed to tuberculosis in the past and a chest X-ray would certainly be indicated. If the X-ray shows no evidence of active tuberculosis and you're otherwise healthy, then the skin test should be regarded merely as an indication of an old, healed infection. Don't Need Test I should point out that you don't have to have a positive kin test to have tuberculosis either. In one study, more than 30 per cent of the patients who had active tuberculosis didn't react to fairly.strong test dose. has the building you need, at the price you can afford ••• A lot of building for the money.
