* >AOt flOHT ALTON EVKN1NO TtttOftAMI THUMDAY, JANUARY 12, 1950 Speakers Meet At Wood River Employment Discussed by Toastmasters WOOt> RIVER, Jan. 12 — Generally agreeing that Industry fehOttld not hamper Itself with family life, members of the Illlnl Toattmasters' Club were divided on the question, "Should Industry Discriminate Against Employing Married Women?" when they dis- . cussed the subject during the tnble topic session at the weekly dinner meeting of the group, Wednesday night, at Skaggs. Three members addressed the club with Keith Carter as firct speaker discussing, "Is the Human Brain Becoming Obsolete?" Carter told of the machines we have invented to serve as brains. Because we do not use our brains as our forefathers did, he claimed that the brains will gradually dc- teroriate through lack of use. ' "It's Expensive to hn Poor" wns discussed by John Norrls, who suggested that the "Out Our VVny" ^cartoon is quite correct in thnt •t"them that has gets." Other conclusions drawn by Norris were that poor people have a harder time of it and can't afford to be poor and rich people get more breaks and can better afford to be poor. Norman T. Robey, third speaker, reminded the group that they are not using the proper standard of 'value, when they judge people on the basis of race, color, and bank accounts instead of recognizing tht merit of the individual. Ro- 'KEY MAN' AWARDS were presented Wednesday night to three members of the Alton Junio Chamber of Commerce in recognition for outstanding work for the civic organization during the pas year.
