EDITORIAL- Labor Disenchantment With Demos Temporary Top labor leaders perhaps should not be taken too seriously when they declare themselves somewhat disenchanted with the Democrats after the enactment of this year's labor reform bill. They have indicated that hereafter they may pass less attention to party labels and more to individual qualifications. They were frankly stunned that a Congress controlled ,by Democrats, containing many members heavily supported by labor, would approve legislation they consider harsh and restrictive. Yet it must be doubted whether this mood will persist. The labor chiefs have known disenchantment In-fore, but not much significant action has flowed from it. In 1947 a Republican Congress, the 80th, passed the Taft-Harley ad., which labor dubbed a "slave k.bor law." It was often overlooked, but presumably not by labor officials, that a majority of Democrats in both houses backed the bill, and most voted to override President Truman's veto. Mr. Truman in 1948 ran' on a platform calling for repeal of Taft- Harley. The Congress voted in with him that year was heavily Democratic in the House, narrowly so in the Senate. The party was considered committed to repeal. Nevertheless the results confounded labor. The Senate, barring repeal, voted a long string of Taft-IIartlcy amendments whose chief sponsor was not a Democrat but the late Sen. Robert A. Taft, co-author of the original. The House went nowhere with repeal, cither. Nor would the Democratic leadership accept the Sen- Times Herald, Carroll, la. Saturday, Oct. 10, 1959 ate's amendments. It seemed to want the whole loaf or nothing. So, with an air of triumph labor found hard to grasp, the House buried the entire issue. From then until now, no major labor proposals have been enacted. Somehow the events of 1947-49 did not shake labor's faith in the Democratic party. The 1959 reform law, however, appears to have had deeper impafct. It involves limitations and requires 'policing which the unions see as hostile interference, threatening their security and stability. Still, how really strong is the prospect that labor will turn in 1960 to Republican candidates on more than a very occasional basis? The record of recent decades suggests the chance is not great. Whatever the leaders say in certain moments of heat, most regard the Democratic party as their political home. When the voting test is at hand, they get an uncomfortable feeling of straying if they start to move beyond its borders.

Although it Hits Unions, New Low Aids Them, Too BY PETER EDSON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON — (NEA) — The new labor reform act which goes into effect in mid-November generally has been regarded as curbing union activities. But the new law also has provisions which change labor relations practices of employers. Some of these changes are considered gains for employers and gome are considered losses. The one change from present law which seems to be causing most concern relates to employer reports on coping with labor unions. Hereafter, employers will have to make annual reports to the secretary of labor on all payments to outside labor relations consultants and payments to unions or union agents. All payments to employes must also be reported when their purpose is to dissuade other em- ployes from exercising their union organizing and bargaining rights. Labor relations consultants, except attorneys, must also file reports. All reports will be public. False reporting will be subject to $1.000 fine and a year's imprisonment. In general, it is believed that big concerns employing their own labor relations and personnel supervisors will not be affected. For payments to officers on the regular company payroll do not have to be reported. But smaller firms which employ outside labor consultants on a retainer or part-time basis must report. This provision will give unions valuable information on anti-organization efforts by employers. But the justification for this provision is that since unions must now file financial statements, employers should do the same. Another provision in the new law which is regarded as a setback for employers relates to new rights given economic strikers. The provision is that replaced economic strikers seeking a raise or improved working conditions will be permitted to vote in plant elections within one year after the strike begins. Previous law did not permit striking former employes — discharged after refusing to return to work by a given date — to vote. Labor leaders claimed this provision was used to bust unions by calling for plant elections after union members had gone out on strike. This new provision will be important in handling long strikes like those at Kohler and O'Sullivan plants. The new law gives employers three principal gains: Five secondary boycott loopholes in the old Taft-Hartley law have been closed, with certain exceptions for the construction and garment industries, which are a separate study in themselves. The new law will permit unions to publicize their demand for a boycott, if the publicity does not interfere with work or delivery and pick-up at the secondary employer's plant. Picketing to force an employer to recognize a union or to force Child Has Grown Up When Parents Take Friends Role I low does a parent let his child know that he realizes the child is finally grown-up? He does it in many liltlu ways, all of them important in establishing a new relationship of equality. The parent doesn't offer the grown son or daughter advice unless it is asked for.

The parent stops criticizing and trying to improve the child, knowing that the time for molding of character or personality is past. The parent treats his son's or daughter's ideas with respect, instead of dismissing them as nonsense if he doesn't happen to agree. He may say, "I don't agree," but he doesn't try to force his ideas on the son or daughter. The parent no longer has to pretend to be all-knowing. He can begin to relax and admit he is as prone to error as the next person. The parent gives up trying to influence his child by showing displeasure. The parent doesn't criticize his son's or daughter's choice o f friends. He may be more 'enthusiastic about some than about others, but he keeps his criticisms to himself. The parent doesn't try to make life easier for the grown child by taking on his responsibilities, financial or otherwise. He stands ready to help, if he can, in a crisis, but he doesn't feel the child who is grown and on his own has to have his constant help. The parent, in short, stops acting like a parent and begins to behave like a friend. (All Rights Reserved, NEA Service. Inc.* Q _ Where did George Washington make his last military appearance?

D. employes to accept a union as their bargaining agent will now be outlawed if there is another union in tho plant, or if there has been a union recognition election within the past 12 months. This is the first •time Congress has ever passed a picketing law. Picketing to promote organization of a union will be permitted 30 days. Then the employer may go to National Labor Relations Board and ask for an election. Picketing can be continued if work at his plant is being interfered with by other workers. This request must now be given priority. If NLRB finds the picketing illegal, an injunction may be issued to end it. Small business concerns, with only a few employes, are benefit- ted by the new law in that they will be permitted to go direct to state courts for relief from unfair labor practice complaints which NLRB formerly refused to handle. These are the so-called "No man's land" cases. They will probably make no change in practices in states like New York, which have their own "little Wagner acts."

Oldsters Appreciate Visit Rather Than Money Gift BY MARIE DAERR Retired people would rather have affection, personal visits and letters from their children than material help from them, two Cornell University professors discovered in a survey they made.

Be with the newest — send 35 cents nowj who feel rejected, shunted to the sidelines by society, all too often lose the will to live," Dr. Swartz told the committee headed by Sen. Pat McNamara. And in Geneva, Switzerland, the World Health Organization urges communities to make a big effort to provide more human contact for old people who have no family or friends living near them. How can you and I help old people slay the dragon of loneliness? If we have aging parents or other relatives, our opportunities are endless. No check or expensive gift is as good "medicine" as a personal appearance. "I know my son is busy," an older woman said to me, apologetically. "I know he doesn't have time to drop in here." The son, a prosperous executive, paid his mother's rent in a beautiful apartment. ("She can have anything she wants," he once told me.) But, except for holidays, the time was rarely right for a visit with her. If we have no relatives in the older age group, we needn't look far to find the older person living alone who, according to the World Health Organization, is desperately in need of human contact. It doesn't take a lot of effort to drive widowed Mrs. G. to the art museum, to a public garden or park, to the downtown shops. It takes even less to drop in on her for a game of cards, or a chat. The old-age assistance officials in my city have discovered the value of such efforts., They have developed a "friendly visitors" program. Through it, volunteers call on these older people whose only income is from the state. Often, they bring them a little treat or take them out for a few hours. One 90-year-old has a "pet" trip to an amusement park where the popcorn balls are especially good! Q — In figuring my average monthly wage, on which Social Security benefits will be based, am I permitted to omit any years in which I didn't earn much money? -L. F. W. A — You may omit up to five years of low or no earnings. Q — I was separated, thuugh not divorced, from my husband at the time of his death. Some one told me I can not receive any survivors benefits from his Social Security. Is this true? — Mrs. K. L. A — You are eligible for pay- orients. Carroll Hi-Recorder Vol. 23 Published by the Students of Carroll High School Carroll, Iowa, Saturday, October 10, 1959 No. 6 Friday, October 23, is the Big Day- C/osses Work on Plans for Homecoming Sophomores — The sophomores have prepared for Homecomi n K with a series of class meetings.

Juniors — The junior preparations for homecoming are similar to those of the other classes. Weeks before homecoming the class begins working on float ideas. These j ideas in turn are given to a float i theme committee, which chooses the best one. A place must be found in which to build the float and various groups must be appointed to get equipment and materials to build the float- All the classes must go through these steps in getting ready for the big event, but these preparations make the actual job much easier and much more fun. Seniors — Lately tho. seniors have been very busy making their plans for tho big C.H.S. Homecoming. Most of the class meetings '• have been during the noon hour. I The final meeting about the float idea was held last week at the home of Jon l/ane.

Bishop's Manfle All-School Play Band on Trip to Sioux City On Saturday, Oct. 3, the band made its annual trip to Sioux City to participate in the 1959 Morningside Band Day. The students were up early and ready to depart but a fatal traffic accident in which one of the buses was involved delayed the departure until 7:30 a.m. The Carroll Band was too late to be in the parade but did take part in a massed band demonstration at half-time of the Morningside College-North Dakota State Foorball game. Fifty - seven northwest Iowa high school bands participated in the massed band under the direction of Dale Caris, guest conductor of East High School, Sioux City. Eighty-one members from Carroll were accompanied by their band director, Karl Rogosch, Dr. and Mrs. Harold E. Deur and Mrs. Waldo McMinimee. Editorial Most everyone has a favorite hilltop, lake or wooded place, or even a season of the year, but the month of October must please all the people of our country. The temperature is neither too hot nor too cold. The flowers seem to put on their most colorful glow as though they realize this is their finale of the year. The landscape changes its color scheme from shades of green to yellows, reds and a brilliant orange. The cool, crisp air seems to instill a briskness in our veins. Farmers are busily harvesting abundant crops of corn and beans; the last produce of gardens and orchards are gathered before the frost; and then there is that nostalgic fragrance of burning leaves. October is the interlude between summer, so quickly passed, and the dormancy of winter with its long evenings and quiet snow - covered landscapes. Will Carleton in his verse concludes: "Sweet and smiling are they ways, Beauteous, golden Autumn days." Soph President a Musical Student Bruce Kienapfel who has been elected president of the sophomore class, is the son of Mr. and Mrs Harold Kienapfel. He was born at the St., Anthony Hospital on December 23, 1943. Being very musical. Bruce is a member of concert and marching band, Teen Tones, Boys' Glee Club, and the Spastic 4. Although not old enough to have participated in many plays, he has shown a flare for dramatics in several plans in which he has had a role. Under the leadership of such a tine and capable student, the sophomore class should be an asset to Carroll High School. t HONOR FOR BECKY We always like to hear about former CHS students — what they arc doing, their impressions and the honors they receive. We weren't surprised when Becky Barels was selected as one of the top one hundred fifty freshmen students who are participating in the honors program at the State University of Iowa. She will receive special counseling and she will be in classes for honor students only.

Jon Lane Spotlight Shines on Three Students Can you imagine who belongs t these hobbies: READING, CHESS AND MUSIC 'Modern Jazz Quarte and Shastakarich) Of course! It's Alec G'illptt. Alec plays center on the C.H.S. football team. Football he says, keeps him busy and pro motes teamwork. Besides football concert and marching band, dra matics, boys' glee club, currenl events class and student council occupy much of his time. Alec's secret ambition is to travel the world, starting with no money. He hopes to attend Cornell University in Ithaca, N. Y. I'm sure that all of Carroll High wishes you success, Alec! Who is that senior right half- oack on the C.H.S. football team 9 Why, it's Jon Lane. Jon is 6' 2" end weighs 185 pounds. He usually plays forward in basketball and runs the high and low hurdles in track. Jon prefers football and track. When asked how sports benefit him, he said that they teach iim sportsmanship and help to keep dim in good physical shape. Jon is president of C-club and has lettered three times. When sports aren't occupying his lime, he works on his car and does homework. Jon's only secret ambition is "Success in the world". He hopes to attend any of the Iowa colleges, but hasn't de- decided which one it will be. We all wish Jon the best of luck in everything he does. Let's meet Dick Snyder and find out what advance preparations are ;aken to get the football field and bleachers in shape for a game. First, the corner stakes must be in place at each edge of the field. fcn stakes must be placed at the thirty yard lines. Next all the side lines must be mowed. After this he marks off the five yard strips and mows each of them. Every five yard strip is mowed the opposite way. Making a line running between the stakes, the field is marked with lime. He measures fifty-three feet, four inches to make the in or out out of bound lines;. He will mark off two yard lines in front of the goal lines. The last step in marking the field is setting out flag markers at the corners. Of course, the field must be kept mowed and watered. When asked about the care of the bleachers Dick said that there has been more work this year because of installing new stands. Usually the work consists of checking for broken boards, sweeping them out, and in muddy weather, hosing them off. It is also Dick's job to check the lights, the score board, and the clock. It is hard to realized all the work and preparation that goes on be- lind the scenes to get ready for that big Friday night game.
