He will be opposed in the General Election by the incumbent Rep. John Hammerschmidt (Rep.). Paul "Our schools need to perform «more effectively in educating lifetime than the money in our youth. Never more than today have we needed greater emphasis on fostering knowledge, skills and most especially, character development. The schools must do their part in creating a sense of national purpose and in nurturing the development of moral courage -and integrity in each student. Our schools should take the lead in providing our children \yilh models and insights for .... .. living satisfying and productive through public ·flivcs."

Well, this is a different kind of TV dinner. It's for kids from ages eight to 12, .Called "Zee Cooking, Show," it'll appear once a week for the icxt 14 Budding weeks.

The only ex- eptions wilt be residents of astern Indiana, Hawaii, Ariona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin slands and Samoa, who ob- crve standard time 12 months a year. Next Feb. 23, clocks will be set forward an hour. Then, un- ess Congress intervenes again, ho regular pattern of daylight ime six months a year woulc be resume! in October 1D75. Year-round daylight time was approved by Congress last December as an energy-conservative measure, and became effective Jan. 6 for a 22-month period. The Senate Commerce Committee, in recommending a re- .urn to standard time during Novemtor, December, January and February, reported the equivalent of 100,000 barrels of oil per day was.saved during the first four months of 1974 because of. daylight time. But such savings "must be balanced against a majority of the public's distaste for the observance of daylight saving time" during the winter, the committee said. Daylight time is opposed, especially during the winter months, by parents of school children, who must start classes during the predawn hours, and by the construction industry, which claims additional safely hazards during early morning hours. chief cook Colette Uossant, herself the mother ot four cooks. I highly recommend the show, not only for youngsters but also for all adults who suffer stove fright and tend to exist on peanut butter and honey sandwiches, when nobody's around to cook for them. Tonight's show deals with the delicate process of making an omelet. Granted, that docsn' sound as lively as, soy, '"Ko jak." But the lively way Mrs Rossant goes about her instruc lion, plus the kids' reaction t it, is curiously refreshing. Mrs. Rossant bustles abou the kitchen with frequent crie of "Voila" as the omelet take nope. i The show, produced for PBS ay the Educational Television tation in Columbia, S.C., oesn't show how to prepare ligh-lovcl eats. Nor does it spe- lialize in French cooking. Its basic'aim, she says, "is to ;how that cooking is fun, that it doesn't take hours to cook and hat you can take hamburger, or meat loaf or fish and you don't have to cook it badly." One. major problem area in he kitchen is measurement -rookie cooks often get stumped when the recipe calls for a hall cup of this or a teaspoon ol :hat, How does she deal with :he issue for children? "I explain a little about it, 1 she says. "But I'm not a grcal measurer. I don't believe in that. Only essential things. 1 say, 'A taste, a tad, a pinch. Experiment? Exactly. This is how you cook." Asked if there've been any culinary disasters in the show Mrs. Roussant replied, "Well it's completely unedited, s whatever disaster 1 have on th show is a disaster a mothe might find in her kitchen when er children cook. "It does happen, but I try to ave it -- that's part of the in truction -- and there've been 10 real disasters," How docs her' kiddie kitchen :ourse differ from adult ver lions?

Reagan Praises Mrs. Pefty's Race; Sees Balanced Budget r; LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Cali- '-fornia Gov. Ronald Reagan ;said Monday that sending Judy "Petty to Congress over Rep. "Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., would ·Jhelp the nation return to the ^'old time religion economics." it' Reagan said such economics '·Include reduced federal spend- 'Jng, a balanced federal budget land lessening of the size and ^power of the federal bureau- ;j,cracy. Reagan said Mrs. Petty, a "-^Republican, "knows that bal- £ancing your budget is like pro- itecting your virtue -- you have "to learn to say 'no.'" " Reagan said the nation's economic problems may be :'blamcd on highly expensive ^"social tinkering" approved -ever the past 40 years mostly by Democratic-controlled' con- "gresscs whose leaders followed '-a. philosphy calling for steadily ^growing government spending ~to obtain and maintain prosperity.

REFORM NEEDED "We've got to return to the ild time religion economics, and, yes, the old time religion n spiritual matters, too, because if we don't, we're going o social reform ourself into the dustbin of history," Reagan aid. Election of Mrs. Petty would iclp reduce dominance of Con- jrcss by those who believe the 'only answer to anything is more government," Reagan contended. He also said national health insurance is a federal proposal that isn't needed. About 100,000 Americans who 'fall through the cracks" in the American medical system do need some special assistance w h e n catastrophically ex pensive illness-strikes, he said But, such aid can be provided "without forcing 200 m i l l i o n Americans into some form q compulsory socialized modi cine," Reagan said. He said he opposes a tax in crease, which some have sug- j gested as a means of reducing inflation. That, he said, would increase funds available to the federal government and would be "like telling a drunk that one more drink is what he needs to sober up." Reagan spoke to about 200 paying participants at a $25-a- plate luncheon for Mrs. Petty. About 100 of them paid an additional $75 to meet Reagan and chat with him at a reception before lunch. The money goes .0 Mrs. Petty's campaign. Brown Named To Placement Post Lawrence G.
