2-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moine* Tuesday, December 11, 1962 IAL, tippet Pe$ttlome$ WOULD END SCHOOL FRILLS At a meeting of some 1800 school teachers from Des Moines and the Central Iowa area, Historian Henry Steele, guest speaker, took modern education to task. He suggested that high schools get rid of non-academic frills. "Let mothers teach their daughters home economics and private dancing schools teach social dancing. Driver education is important but there is no reason in the world why high . schools should teach it," he said. He suggested that the American Legion, * V.F.W. or perhaps insurance companies could * handle the driver training without having it attached to the school system. * He also asserted that the time is long past * when schools have to depend on spectator sports 4 to stir up community interest, and that teaching I the use of musical instruments was not a function of a school system. All of these, rolled together, if adopted, . would certainly trim down the school activities, * we must admit. ' Mr. Steele, after his talk, returned to -. his professorship at Amherst College, in Mass* achusetts, so fortunately is long gone and far « away, and out of earshot of the many who '„ would take exception to his suggestions. We • can readily see where his ideas, if adopted, + would considerably reduce the operating costs * of school systems, however, but it is highly un* likely that any of them will be adopted. We " have come to accept the "frills" as part of the .. system, and they are here to stay. * * * • WELFARE CASES FREE • Waseca (Minn.) Journal — A North Dakota „ medical doctor has announced that he will „ treat welfare patients free starting December • 10. In other words he would rather do the work j for nothing than accept government payments « for treating welfare patients. " Dr. Clarence S. Martin, 44, Medina, N. D., * made his plans known through a paid adver- i. tisement in the Jamestown Sun. In it he promis- l ed the same care he had been giving patients "and he urged them to keep coming to him. * Dr. Martin has some things to say on the ^ subject which are very poignant: * "It stands to reason that when I give you - a dollar, it costs me only that dollar. But, if I " let the government do it for me, it costs me S3, - plus my freedom, by being dictated to as to ^ how, where, what and how much I dare do: ^ "Plus my time, and it often takes four • limes as much time for paper work aV : /he'1ime "* I spend with patients . . . probably the greatest » sabotage is that of the human emotion. It takes „ away the joy of helping someone." THE COUNTRY IS ALL BLACK Eagle Grove Eagle - Never have we seen Iowa when there was so much plowing done at this time of year. We took a trip over into northeastern Iowa Saturday and until you get out of the grain country there is hardly a field left that isn't plowed. And in nearly 400 miles of driving we never saw a pheasant or any hunters either. And for that matter there is no place for a pheasant to hide. Some of the hunters tell us that they have been finding them in the furrows of the plowing. That is all right for the kind of weather we have been having but it won't be any good when the snows and the cold north wind begin to blow. We heard one of our conservation officials one time make the statement that any wild game, pheasants included, first had to have a suitable housing then food and water supply came next in importance. If that statement is true we won't have to worry about pheasant hunting next fall. There just aren't any living quarters left for them in north Iowa. * * * NIXON AT HIS WORST Emmetsburg Reporter — Repeatedly in tha highly emotional and ungrammatical statemenl to the press following his defeat in the California gubernatorial election, Richard Nixon conceded the right of reporters to give their opin ions in reporting the news. In this, he was conceding what no legitimate newspaper would claim. Reporters have one and only one function in journalism. That's to report truthfully and objectively in areas which lend themselves to controversy. If writers who covered the Nixon- Brown campaign in news space did less than that, he had a kick coming. A newspaper has not only the right but the duty to express editorial opinions on the editorial page or, if elsewhere in the paper, so clearly identified as editorial opinion that there can be no doubt in the mind of a reader. Whether those assigned to cover this most recent campaign or in the Presidential campaign of 1960, could submerge their admitted dislike for Nixon and turn in detached and objective reports is a debatable question, even within the profession. The case, as a matter of fact, was ever so RIKIMP<S<* BUDIINCOD Quarter (SE feet, on a I line of the f ARGYLE .

For each pound loaf in 1961, the wheat grower received only 2.4 cents compared to 2.7 cents in 1947-49 period, says the U.S.D.A. Even if the farmer donated the wheat the bread would still cost the consumer 18.5 cents a loaf. The U.S.D.A. says the retail grocer received 3.8 cents. The higher costs of baking and distributing added to the increase in price in the 12 year period. It's the same problem with many other items of food. The farmer is getting less per item, with the processor and distributor getting a bigger percentage based on increased labor costs. The farmers costs have gone up also, but he is unable to pul the increased cost onto his sale price. * K k It requires greater gift to write nonsense WASHINGTON MERRY-Go-ROUND By DREW PEARSON containing 0.49 acre, improved by a frame house. 2.
