The police at Decatur, 111., have started a campaign to keep women and girls in shorts off the streets. That's the best way in the world NOT to get the job done— by saying they can't do it. The police force at Decatur are probably all bachelors, for a- most any married man would never have tried it in the first place 'or would have come out with an oblique attack like saying women in shorts look bowlegged or nobby-kneed or whatever struck his mind as the most withering statement he could make. Then keep his big mouth shut! But the Decatur girls, so the daily papers breathlessly report, are going half way on the edict, and are now wearing slacks, which certainly should be a lesson to the Decatur police.

WHOEVER # * NAMED those things "slacks" either had a loose seed in the gourd on his shoulders o r a fiendish sense of humor, for there are very few of them that have any slack according to the way that word is defined in the dictionary. Better they should be called snuggles, or maybe even rumpus clothes, naturally after the rumpus rooms installed in playful homes. ;;: :^ I'f. • SILLYIST ACT yet of all the all the silly things that have come out of Hollywood was the "marriage by proxy" of two rather prominent film stars. They had a couple of stooges in Mexico po through the ceremony, and then announcer THEY were married. Such foolishness is a direct blow at the sanctity of the home besides being simple in the head, and anyone who can't take time or doesn't care enough to attend his or her own wedding is — well w A»VAN^i ;r ALOONA, IOWA Garden Club Has Program— The Garden ,club met a week ago Monday for 'an annual pic- you name it!

Th atom, that makes everything tick because it's the smalles base on which all matter is con structed, consists of a whirlpoo of energy. Scientists have been working for years to "split" the atom and get the energy from the little pieces thus cut off anc harness it to work. But the big difficulty is that splitting th atom is extremely dangerous to the world, for if not done pro perly the splitting process wil spread so rapidly from atom t atom and the world will destroj itself in a kind of cannibalism Ruthless men like Hitler woulc find satisfaction over taking thv. whole world with them in the: suicide when they are cornered if AFTER THIS LAST week the theme song o f the Fourth o July resignation period for Tru man could very well be "There'] Be Some Changes Made."

Persons who know her well say it is an inspiration to have her as a friend. The indifference with which she has accepted her j handicap is a challenge tp those who come in contact with her at work and socially. She is in school because she feels that it is an obligation to herself, her friends, and her pupils, and it is her job to take 'brush up' courses. Her class preparation is done with the assistance of summer school pupils, Elsie Larson, Titonka, teacher of Portland twp. No. 1, and Evelyn Warburg, Rock Valley, who read to her. Takes Notes in Braille. Notes arc taken on a Braille slate, and alone she studies and learns her assignments from the notes. Class room lectures are studied in the same manner. Her notebooks are interesting and she reads them readily, using the touch system, which she says takes much time and patience to learn'. But it has its compensation in the avenues of learns it affords. The Braille alphabet is made up of combinations of six dots.

Blindness Came Suddenly. Talking with her recently she poke unhesitatingly of her Blindness at 14. She was sitting n a class room studying arith- •netic lesson. Suddenly the page efore her blurred but she did- 't realize anything serious had happened. It was the last hour f the day, and at dismissal, be- ng familiar with the room she made her way to the door. There she was met by a 6> r l riend who walked home with icr. The next day she was ta<en to a DCS Moines hospital 'or examination, and after two months was discharged. Graduates at ISTC. Realizing that she would be permanently blind she had resolved, while she was in the hospital, that she would never permit herself to be a liability or source of unhappiness to her I family. She knew that life could hard, because when she was seven her father died and when ner mother was at work she had oeen responsible for the care of a younger brother and sister. Her first step in carrying out her resolution was when she enrolled at Vinton as soon as she was dismissed from the hospital. She was graduated from the school there' and later from the teachers college at Cedar Falls with a B. A. degree. She returned to Vinton where she has taught the past seven years. Don'i Pity Ihe Blind. When Miss McCutchan was asked what, if anything, others can do to help the handicapped she said: "If people would only accept handicapped people as they are it would make them very happy. Treat them as normal people, not as those to be pitied and waited upon." A handicapped person is normal in all other ways, but because of circumstances has had to readjust life to meet the different condition. In her case it was the visual handicap that required her to learn to do things differently, and she added: "Blindness is an inconveniecne. We have to detour, but there is always a road. A handicap is not a stop sign." Gives Her Philosophy. In talking about herself she said people want to understand the handicapped to the best their ability, and in return the handicapped must realize that they have certain obligations. She said: "I live in a normal world. The handicapped are only a small portion of it, and it is my obligation to keep as normal as possible if people are to accept me as I want to be accepted. I must be agreeable. If I fail in maintaining a normal interest in life, then I have only morning Jnne 29, at the Church ss of Christ parsonage, Hampton, := the Kcv. Howard M.
