editorials finrrfcn Monday, THcgrnm 10, W4 Those Colorado ferns Wfe doubt if there are any of the Big Eight basketball teams, other than the Colorado Buffaloes themselves, who enjoy playing on the court at Boulder. It isn't the thinner air at that almost 6,000-feet elevation, although this does bother players from the lowlands. Nor is it the always-present away-from- home disadvantage that visiting teams seem to possess. The Buffs always are rugged competition in basketball play, but it's the Buff fans, not the players, who make it rough at Boulder. The Kansas State University Wildcats came through in an overtime squeaker at Boulder Saturday night, and the partisan Colorado fans were at their peak. When the K-Staters stood at the line for free throws, they were met with a hooting, hollering reception from the fans. A whistle against a Colorado player brings an immediate chorus of "boos". After Saturday night's game, rolls of toilet tissue were tossed at the Kansas State broadcasting booth. Colorado consistently displays a good brand of basketball, and as far as we have heard, Buff players are sportsman-like in their conduct. But not so their fellow students. There have been years when Kansas State cage fans were just as rowdy, and raucous. But athletic officials have sought their cooperation, and things have improved in Manhattan. Kansas University fans also know the meaning of sportsmanship. We think things would improve out Boulder way if university officials would press for such changes. Togetherness Needed M oney reputedly is the root of all evil. If this is the case, it may explain why some ill-advised groups seem to be attempting to play one segment of our educational system against others. The grade and high schools, the junior colleges, the state colleges and the universities all are equally essential parts of the program of public education in Kansas. . No one part may be neglected without damaging the others. Unless the lower schools provide qualified graduates, the colleges suffer. Unless the colleges produce qualified teachers, the schools suffer. Unless the system produces professional, business, industrial, craft, civic and scientific leaders, the whole staite suffers. That one part should .be pitted against another part for tax funds of any sort is mutual folly. Carried to extremes, such rivalry for appropriations could be a form of academic suicide. While private schools and colleges must be considered separately for constitutional reasons, they too are an important part of the Kansas program. Cooperation between them and public institutions IB im- v,,,e segment that should be developed is the junior colleges. These two-year schools should enjoy urn- formly higher standards and a regional basis; the pattern should be state-wide. Such local colleges would be a convenience to students and relieve the enrollment crush at the universities. Possibly in amis now served by private colleges, the need for public two-year programs could be met through a contractual arrangement with them. Such an approach would be mutually advantageous. The point is that all element** of Kansas education, from kindergarten to graduate study, should be considered as a whole. Not as a rigid, monolithic authoritarian program but as vital paru geared together^ Hoi Boyle Soy« — Live Buffalo a Status Symbol "Very Clevei That Should Give Both Of Them Trouble At Home" the World Today U.S. Effort to Isolate Castro Is Big Failure By JAMES MARLOW AtsoeiatMl Preti Newt .Vitlytt WASHINGTON (AP) — This country's effort tj isolate Fidel Castro is beginning to look sick if only because business is business. It's not a one-way street, either. A British newspaper, the Daily Mail, complained bitterly ovei the weekend because a leading British physiologist, unable to get enough research funds for his work in his homeland, is leaving for the United States. This is a frank acknowledgment of business rivalry at a tim° when the United States is foinnlaining bitterly because British and French firms are selling Castro millions of dollars' worth of buses, trucks and tractors. They are not the only friends or allies who are dealing, or are expected to deal, with Cuba, Spain I* expected to buy 200, 000 tons of Cuban sugar this year. the Netherlands and Japan about 100,000 tons each. Castro in turn is expected to buy things from Japan. This country wa* angered perhaps even more when France recognized Red China which this country would like to isolate, just us it would Castro. So far it hat kept Red China out of the United Nations. President Charles de Gaulle, being very practical, said it was mst the practical thing to do, since the reality is that the Red Chinese run the Chin* mainland. He is also butting into Southeast Asia and Latin America. The British prime minister, Sir Alec Douglas-Home, even made stepped-up British trade with Cuba sound like a device for destroying Castro'* revolutionary fervor. He defended it this way: "People become less Communist when they're more comfortable." Sen. Barry Goldwater, running for the Republican presidential nomination, as usual has a simple answer. He savs he'd use warships to stop British or French shins from carrying cargoes to Cuba. Since he's not president, he wouldn't have to take the responsibility for what might hap- . sh Drew Pearson Reports Ghana's Dictator Nkrumah Could Easily Be Spanked WASHINGTON — The Johnson It's now leaked out that Jnc- atomic blasts.

THINGS WERE so simple and unspecialized back in our childhood. When we talked to someone getting the ultimate punishment for a misdeed, we threatened that he'd "go to jail" or, in exreme, to the "pen."

They listed the following factors, in order of importance, as the strongest influences governing their choices of careers: 1. Personal knowledge of their own interests and abilities. 2. Advice of Parents. 3. Subjects studied in high school (other than guidance classes). 4. Talks with people not connected with the high school or college. 5. Advice of a high school teacher. 6. General reading in newspapers and magazines. 7. The program of the high school as a whole. 8. Books read in high school. 9. Advice of a high school counselor. 10. Working at the vocation after school or during summer vacation. 11. Public library books or lectures. 12. Motion pictures. 13. Advice of a high school principal or sijperin- tendent 14. Advice of a clergyman. 15. A guidance class in high school. pen afterward if President Johnson followed his advice. For instance: What would happen to this country's various alliances If it tried to stop its allies' ships with American warships? What would happen if they ignored the warships' orders to halt? The United States can't very well go to war with Cuba without risking the loss of its world influence or war with the Soviet Union. And no administration in a Presidential election year is likely to come to terms with Castro. So there doesn't seem much It can do except to try to persuade its allies and friends not to overdo tfcis business of business with the Cuban. Youth Faces I Murder Charge LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Basil Brown, 32, of Lawrence, was killed early Sunday by • high-powered rifle bullet fired through a window of a house. His nephew, Phillip Douglas Jacobs, 22, of Kansas City, was arrested in Merriam, Kan., and was charged with first degree murder. He is being held without bond in Lawrence. County Attorney Ralph King said the investigation was continuing. He did not disclose a motive. King said four shots were fired from outside the residence of Ambrose J. Scott, where Brown was in a room with several other persons. Oficials said Jacobs orally admitted firing .several shots from a British .303 rifle. The officers said • rifle was found in the car Jacobs was driving when he was arrested. At 106 She's Against Women in Politics KNOXVILLE.
