Wanted A Pen STUDENTS COMMENT ON EDUCATION American Education Week Mayor Dunlop is proclaiming October 24-30 as National Education Week in Orange City. The projects in Orange City are being sponsored by the National Education Association, American Legion, National Parent Teachers Association and the United States Office of Education. Some of the classes in the grades 1-4 are having coffees with parents so they may come and see what their children are doing in school. For the people not able to attend the coffees a 30-40 minute video tape will be made depicting school life. This will be shown to the Lyons, JayCee's, and in the L & K show window. Anyone else wanting to use the tape for any meeting is asked to contact M-OC high school. Placemats were given to the Durch Mill Inn to be used October 24-30 to remind people that it is National Education Week. Students have been working hard for this special week too. The half-time show for the Akron game will be geared for the occasion and the expository writing class " wrote papers on education of which some will appear in the paper. Magazine Sales Have you bought any magazines lately? If so, it could have been from a sophomore eagerly trying to reach their goal of $1.600. Ween Venture to Spencer The Y-Teen held it's Iowa Town and Country YWCA Every Member Conference at Spencer. The meeting was held at the United Methodist Church beginning at 9:30 and lasting till 3:45. The girls representing M-OC were Pam Bonnema, Denise Schiebout, Kay Vande Griend, and Elizabeth Vogel. The day consisted mostly of discussion groups led by Miss Nina Alleman on how to make your organization better and Lauretta Feeves on Racism. The overall theme for the year is "Everything is Beautiful." The girls came home with interesting ideas and hope to put them to use. They didn't quite reach their goal but did make $450 which will go into funds. The total subscriptions numbered 267 and total sales were $1,241.91. The top winners were given prizes and these were Barb Van Peursem and she chose a cassette tape player and Rhonda Vanden Berge and she selected an AM-FM radio. Each person's sales were kept track of and posters were awarded to those selling TV guides, and Smile pillows to those selling two combination subscriptions. Patti Schoep won 10<? per pound as the top salesmen on the first day. The money earned by the sophomore class is divided between their class fund and the Student Council. Khasoko Sec. School P.O. Box 46 Bungoma, Kenya E. Africa Dear M-OC Students, You will perhaps be surprised to receive a letter from an African boy you have never heard of. I was able to talk to one of my teachers from your country. I told him that I was very much interested in the States and, therefore he suggested thatl should write to you. First, may I introduce myself. I am 18 years of age in Form III in the above named school. May you understand that we in Africa we go to school when we are quite aged, so don't blame me. My interests are current affairs, corresponding with different people, football, writing and reading letters. I would be very much interested to hear about your country. What are your interests? I hope we will become pen- friends at least. Perhaps one day we will have an opportunity of meeting. I hope you will write back. Yours sincerely, (signed) Kiketeh Mung'aliu Greetings! Form III corresponds to the junior year in U.S. high schools (called secondary schools here). Kiketeh is an outstanding person-I'm sure that an M-OC student would profit from corresponding with him. He's alert to world affairs, and enjoys argument and discussion concerning them. He'll take letter-writing seriously-in contrast to most Americans who have lost the art of letter-writing to the telephone -- but perhaps I've given a mistaken impression. In addition to being an intellectual within the limits of his environment and opportunities, Kiketeh is also the football (soccer) team's goal keeper and a very handsome and engaging chap. I hope that someone will take this chance to look at the world through the eyes of a Kenyan. Cheers! (Signed) Karen Bolluyt An educated citizenry Is essential to the democratic form of government. Citizens of a democracy must be able to make Intelligent decisions on local and national Issues. This Is one of the most Import functions of the educational system in the United States. Early in the eighteenth century it was realized that free education was a public responsibility and necessity. The essence of democracy is based on the concept that the common people are capable of making wise decisions concerning their futures. If this wasn't true, the United States could not have endured for the past two hundred years. In Its broadest sense education isn't just the transfer of accumulated knowledge. It's the teaching of tolerence, morality and the many aspects of our culture. Public education has aided In molding the diverse factions of the American people Into an English speaking, relatively homogenious group. For example, it's unlikely the people who immigrated into the United States during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century would have become Americanized so rapidly without the public school system. Even if the first generation held onto their old beliefs and customs, the second generation usually accepted the American way of life which they had learned through their schooling. This has been the secret of our rise from a loosely organized con- the federation of states into strongest nation on earth. As problems become increasingly complex, a very sensitive and knowledgeable citizenry will be essential. The era of the simple man, leading the simple life, is forever gone. Tomorrow, as today, our system of free public education must continue making people aware of the world they live in. This sould be the ultimate goal of education because only when people are aware of what's happening will they be able to change it for the benefit of all mankind. --Grey Vermeer Education Is very Important in today's, world. It is required for any well paying job. It has also brought about many good changes in our lives. As a student, one should realize the necessity of an education. A good education Is not only necessary for one's occupation, but It also teaches man to live In our world. It was through education that our environment has become complex. We acquired many of today's luxuries because there were humans who realized the Importance of education. Man will also invent many new products In the future, because he was educated. As our world advances, man continues to learn through change. Our world will also continue to change through man's learnings. Laura VanderLaan School takes on various meanings to different people. To portions of the student body it Is a wasted day. They would much rather be out making money (at prices up to a fabulous two, or maybe two-fifty an hour). To others It Is where you go to get your head stuffed with all sorts of uninteresting material. But to most kids school is a must. They go. because their parents say they should. If education is looked upon under these three categories, then its purpose is being warped. Learning should be enjoyable. Mnay kids automatically shun books because this seems to be the accepted social way. If these youngsters would give their studies some time they might accidently enjoy It. Truths are. revealed through books, and satisfaction is complete when a student solves a difficult problem. If pupils would start viewing education from a different standpoint, many blessings would be theirs.

Smith, president of NMSC, said: "Although Commended students advance no further in the Merit Scholarship, their standing in this nationwide program deserves public recognition. Their high performance on the NMSQT gives promise of continued success in college. "The Commended students should be encouraged to pursue' their education since their intellectual talent represents an important and much needed natural resource. Both these students and our nation will benefit from their continuing educational development." The Commended students' names are reported to certain scholarship-granting agencies and to the colleges they named as their first and second choices when they took the NMSQT In February 1971.
