O — O—O O -O—O O —O—O It is only when men begin to worship that they begin to grow. —Calvin Coolidge. Editorial Right Vs. License A MONG THE MANY QUESTIONS raised by the assassination ^ of President Kennedy is, where does the public's "right to know" end and Peeping Tom-ism begin? For with our wonderful ability to catch and transmit the •tight and sound of news events, we seem at times dangerously close to becoming a nation of Peeping Toms. We must, for Instance, have a camera trained on the face of the wife of an astronaut at the very moment he is being launched into space, quite possibly to his death. To some, who may have weak imaginations or who doubt that people they haven't seen in the flesh are quite real, this may be emotionally satisfying. To others, it is a gross invasion of privacy and commercial degrading of human dignity, even if done by consent. After the assassination, millions of television viewers were treated to a reporter prying into the sorrow of the widow and children of a policeman and supposedly being edified by listening to such questions as: "What are your plans now?" "Do you think. Mrs. Kennedy feels as you do?" "Do you want to be a policeman when you grow up, son?" More tragically, this alleged public demand to he in on everything, to be right there as it happens, resulted, first, in the trial without jury of the accused assassin and, second, in his death. Sometimes, as in the case of a president's funeral, our ability to participate remotely by electronic means is a moving experience for which we are humbly grateful. And future generations will thank us for preserving such a moving moment In history. There is, however, a line between the legitimate right of the public to be informed—which is one of the rocks upon which • democracy must be based—and voyeurism. The blurring of this line can only result in a general cheapening of all that we value. The Sea —Horn Of Plenty •THE SEA, which covers 70 per cent of the world's surface, has often been called the last remaining unexplored frontier. Indications of how vast that frontier may be, and what treasures await man's discovery, continue to pile up. The technical publication, Undersea Technology, reports, for instance, that off the coast of California, supplies of seafloor phosphates range from 14,000 to 420,000 tons per square mile, valued at $7 a ton. Native gold, silver, platinum, diamonds and huge supplies of calcium carbonate (used in cement) are available and not too difficult to mine under the sea. "Minerals already are being extracted off California," the magazine says. "Russia is now mining diamonds in waters off Africa; the offshore oil industry is already immense. It is termed the second great growth of the 20th century." All of which lends a tinge of optimism to projections of the earth's* mineral needs in the future to support a doubled and redoubled population. It also points up the need for early international agreement on a fixed and fair off-shore limit and sharing of this wealth. Like the moon, the sea ought to belong to everyone.

(API-Illinois public schools arc free to observe the Giristmas spirit, as a matter of voluntary activity, the slate's top education official said today. "I don't think any illegally is involved," said Hay Page, stale superintendent of public instruction. Page was asked in a telephone interview whether the | U.S. Supreme Court ruling that official religious exercises in the public schools are unconstitutional had affected Christmas programs in Illinois schools. He said that Christmas programs — plays, caroling and making replicas of the nativity scene and other decorations — are voluntary for pupils. "There is no effort to avoid the religious connotation of Christmas, and I don't think there is anything illegal nbout. that," he said. "Teachers have a moral responsibility to their pupils as well as that of acquainting them with facts." Other holidays are recognized, and the sifnificance of each is a pavt of the recognition, he said. Page said pupils who do not wish to participate in Christmas activities are not required to do so, and that Jewish pupils are granted time for participation in observance of the holy days of their faith. He said that, as far as he knew, there has ben no com­ plaint jfiKMit programs or decorations.
