Contrast Wendell with boys on the "allowance" plaa who doa'l work for their speeding money! Which type gain more "horse sense?" And votes more intelligently? Which will be FOR the "establishment" Instead of against It? Parents, urge your children to carry a newspaper roate! CASE U-512: Wendell Hill, aged 10, is the son of a Free Methodist clergyman whose pulpit I recently occupied. Afterwards, Rev. Hill and his gracious wife invited Mrs. Crane and me to a delicious dinner in their home. "Dr. Crane," Rev. Hill began, "Wendell is a newspaper carrier." His beaming mother added: "And he won a big turkey during the holdays for gaining 6 new subscribers!" Mrs, Crane and I congratulated Wendell. "How many customers, do you have on your route?" I asked. "There are now 48," Wendell replied, "and I earn |5 per week." Then is mother gave us an extra bit of information. "Our church is trying to raise money for a new building," she added, "since our present sanctuary is almost 100 years old and inadequate. "So my husband has urged parishioners to make personal sacrifices in order to get our first (60.000. "Wendell pledged fl per week, but recently decided that he wasn't making any real sacrifice by contributing only $1. "So now he gives |2 each week out of his $5 earnings.'' Again I expressed my praise for his devotion to the church. "I suppose you do your own collecting on Saturday?" I added. "Yes," Wendell answered, "but I may start on Thursday and Friday because people aren't always home on Saturday." His dad shook his head with a rueful grin and said: "Sometimes Wendell has difficulty getting his money from occasional subscribers but even this is an educational experience!" "Wendell," I began, "there are 3 parts to our famous American economic system. "One is 'Production,' involving the raising of farm crops or making of shoes or automobiles, etc. "The 2nd is 'Merchandising,' which involves, advertising, selling, packaging of goods, plus their delivery. "The 3rd phase is 'Credit,' and includes bank cashiers, accountants, bookkeepers, and all those who take in the money for the goods or services that have been produced. > "But the usual worker in the 'Production' phase doesn't try to merchandise what he produces nor collect. "And the 'Merchandiser' may also be restricted just to advertising or selling, but have no experience at collecting and balancing his books to see if there is any 'net' profit after he pays for his goods. "You newspaper carriers are thus the ONLY large group of boys in America who gain all 3 views of our economic system. "For you buy your papers at wholesale; then merchandise them and try to win new subscribers. "Finally, you collect and thus find out what your 'net' income amounts to. "So you newspaper boys (and girls) gain the very best type of economic training in America! Miss Sylvia Grider In Greece For Archaeological Excavation iyJANERADWOO •I guess than where I really got the but," Mid Sylvia Grider, reminiscing about the "archieotofkil dig" In New Metico and Arliona ihe attended In IK? n a Girl Scout. Where did it lead'. To the summer of '11 and an archaeological excavation in Greece it one of the few persons in thii country qualified and experienced in field classification and cataloguing of artlfacu. Working out of Porto Cheli, a "fairly Inaccessible" part of southern Greece, south of Corinth, the group is co-sponsored by the University of Indiana, where Sylvia is working toward her doctorate degree and the University of Pennsylvania. This Is not entirely unfamiliar territory to Sylvia. Because of her museum experience in classifying and cataloguing artifacts, she was chosen for a similar expedition in 1967, working out of Corinth. It was during this first project that she received her field experience. For the 72 dig, she is in charge of the classification and cataloguing for the entire expedition, composed of a number of teams that will turn over their "finds" to her. She coordinates what the field teams excavate and keeps Irak of where it was found. An intensive surface survey will be done by the teams, she said, which is a new theory in archaelogy. She will catalogue all material picked up on the surface and correlate it with what is dug up, which, she explained, gives a clearer picture of the age and period of he excavated artifacts, as well as a picture of the development of a certain culture. Most of her work will be done in the "base camp." Experienced in Girl Scout camping, Sylvia is used to "roughing it," However, the expedition does not "tent it out." "We live under the hot sun," she explained. Versatile in several fields, Sylvia received her bachelor's degree in Latin and her master's degree in history, with a minor in archaeology, both at the University of Texas, Austin. "The neatest thing of the whole trip is that I am going to get to visit with Kathy," Sylvia pointed out. She was referring to Kathy Papasthaspoulou, now Mrs. George Zaphiriou, former American Field Service exchange student in Pampa. Her work toward her doctorate in the fairly-new field of folklore involves a closely-knit group of enthusiasts, which resulted in Sylvia being chosen to "handy carry" greetings from the Folklore Institute of Indiana University to the Folklore Academy of Athens. Kathy, she said, will be her interpreter. What exactly is the study of folklore? "It is the study of the commonality of people," she explained, adding it is an especially exciting field since it covers many, varied and broad areas. "You look for the commonality in all people."

"You are expected to write for publication," she pointed out, adding that the success of a candidates degree work (for a doctorate) is based a great deal upon how many articles he has published. True to her Texas heritage, Sylvia researched the great Panhandle dust storm of April 14, IMS, with the results being published in the Ml yearbook of the Texas Folklore Society. And greeted with great enthusiasm was her presentation on Coke bottles "Bottoms Up," at a recent international folklore meeting at Toledo, Ohio, the Ohio Popular Culture Association of America will publish this paper next year, which includes her findings on changes In the shape and size of bottles through the years and of the "place names" on the bottom of the bottles. A Texan among Yankees and foreign students carries certain expectations with it, according to Sylvia, in speaking of a costume party she attended at the university. "I was expected to appear in cowboy hat and boots," she stated, "so I went in full Western regalia." As a result, a Nigerian exchange student is a happy man. He talked Sylvia out of her cowboy hat. "He told me the most exciting part of his year, (at Indiana University) was meeting a real-life Texan," she said.
