2-Algona (ta.) Upper Des Moinat Tuesday, October 9, 1962 TROUBLE IN MISSISSIPPI By every yardstick of democracy, anyone scholastically eligible and with the necessary funds and finances, is entitled to enter a college or university. Private schools have enrollment limits and waiting lists. State-financed schools have no such limits for in-state student applicants. Thus, the desire of a 29 year-old Negro, James Meredith, a native of Mississippi to enter the University of Mississippi, as a transfer from an all-Negro college in Mississippi, was perfectly legal, constitutional and in keeping with the democratic concepls of the nation. Yet, two men are dead, others are injured, hundreds of Federal marshals are on duty, national guard outfits and regular troops were moved around the country, and the trouble may not be over yet, as a result of one person's desire to enter Old Miss. But there is one thing that is not so clear. Just why did Meredith pick the University of Mississippi to take his political science course? There are literally hundreds of universities and colleges, some not too distant from Oxford, where no opposition would have developed. Most people would prefer a more congenial scholastic surrounding; paying approximately $95,000 a day to maintain Federal marshals, National Guardsmen and regular army troops is not exactly our idea of selecting a congenial university. There are still a number of unexplained questions as to why Meredith chose to make his pass at Old Miss, knowing full well what would happen. Did he simply feel he had to have the political science course at Mississippi - or did some group put him up to it? * * * THE KIDS AND TV A child psychologist said that a series of tests he has made has tended to show that children shun products advertised on their favorite TV program. Twenty percent of the children tested did not want to use any of the products advertised on their favorite programs, said Glenn W. Thompson, in a talk before the American Psychological Association convention. He conducted his test among third grade pupils. How often have you been watching a program which contained advertising from the XYZ cigarette company, while smoking an ABC cigarette? Or have you ever had the experience of quaffing a glass of PDQ beverage while watching a commercial from the DBF brewing company? There is merit in most forms of advertising, the advertising which intrudes the least meets in varying degrees, but it still seems to be that with the best reception and produces the best results. That is why newspaper advertising, week in and week out, has a superior pulling power. It is there, it does not intrude but gets the message across, it carries prestige, and it is invited into the home by the nfiewspaper subscriber. * * + SCARCITY OF PROFESSIONAL MEN Grundy Register — There are more people living in Grundy county now than there were twenty-five years ago. But there are fewer professional people in the county now than there were then. In the earlier days there were doctors and dentists in nearly every town in the county. Grundy Center had six M.D.'s in the late thirties. Now there are only half that many. There was a a doctor in the town of Dike, where there is none now. The town of Holland hoc a doctor. Wellsburg had as many as three anc four doctors at one time, and a dentist. Now there is but one doctor and no dentist Conrad had as many as three doctors at one time and now they have one. The number o' dentists has been reduced by half. In the older days, doctors and dentists had to wait for patients. Now patients have to wait for doctors. The number of lawyers has also decreased substantially. Dike had a lawyer, as did Wellsburg and Conrad where there now is none. Many teache-s were without jobs and now there are not teachers enough. There is also a depressing shortage of ministers. There are now seven churches in Grundy county without a minister. The shortage of professional people is not due because of income and salaries. Doctqrs and dentists from an income standpoint never had it so good. Our lawyers are working shorter hours and their incomes are substantially higher. The salary of teachers and ministers has more than doubled and tripled during the past t Upper 5K-s 111 E. Call Street—Ph. CY 4-3535—Algnna, Iowa Second clan postage paid al Algona. lows 25 years. With such a substantial increase of income for professional people, why is the supply running so low? * * * WHAT THEY MEAN! Exchange — For those having business in the nation's capital city, you will want this article and refer to it often. The terminology briefly explains those mystery words often coming from Washington. "IT IS IN PROCESS" - So wrapped up in red tape that the situation is almost hopeless "WE WILL LOOK INTO IT" - By the time the wheel makes a full turn, we assume that you will have forgotten about it, too. "A PROGRAM" — Any assignment that can't be completed by one telephone call. "TO ACTIVATE" - To make carbons and odd more names to the memo. "TO IMPLEMENT A PROGRAM" - more people and expand the office. "UNDER CONSIDERATION" - Never heard of it.

At that time, all bids were to be opened and read during an open meeting. No exact figure was available on the total cost of the proposed structure, but a $400,000 bond issue to finance the cost had been passed several years earlier, so taxpayers had actually been paying off the bonds before construction of the building. • * • T.
