(la.) Upcer 5*t Molne* Ttiundoy, March 11, 1965 UNITED NATIONS PROBLEM The "independence" of a host of new to-called nations within the past 10 years, has created a major problem within the United Nations. At this moment, with Indonesia eliminated, there are 79 "new" nations in UN membership, compared with a combined total of 35 for all other countries, communist and non-communist alike. Each country has a vote in general sessions, with the result that the 79 are in a position to control general policy if they act together. And judging by some of the proposed programs, they are acting together. Their chief aim seems to be to have the other 35, and chiefly the United States, underwrite every dollar's worth of economic development they attempt, and also to finance their military requirements which usually seem to turn Into localized revolts and tribal wars. The United Nations is a wonderful Idea, and the only world association today which enables leaders of all nations to sit down together and possibly work out mutual solutions to mutual problems. But it appears that In our headlong plunge to decolonlalize, and to recognize the assorted nationality and tribal drives for independence, so-called, we may also have turned voting control over to 79 new nations, few of them able to stand on their own feet, and too few interested in anything other than feathering the individual nest of whoever happens to be running those countries at the moment. It took 300 years to build a capitalist United States. It has used up 48 years of Soviet Union time In trying to make communism work and It still has a host of unsolved industrial and agricultural problems, as well as a few internal political ones. Yet the 79 newcomer nations expect the rest of the world to subsidize and underwrite their own development and stability. We believe In the United Nations Idea, but we object to being played for a tucker in the process. BALD EAGLE TROUBLES Out in California an amateur bird collector found an American bald eagle dead of shooting by persons unknown. He took It to a taxidermist and had It stuffed, but the taxidermist also turned in the name of the man who found the eagle to U. S. authorities. It seems It is against the law to possess an American eagle, alive or DEAD. Tho unfortunate bird collector was fined $150, and they took away his dead eagle. Presumably it went to the dump. Well, laws are made to be observed, but Incidents like this one do make a person wonder. Upper iBes HIE.

OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING RATES ON REQUEST PROBLEM SOLVED Attorney General Lawrence Scalise of Iowa was asked to issue an opinion as to whether or not a school may withhold a report card from a student to force him to pay delinquent school fees. Scolise has ruled that a school has no authority to withhold something a student has earned, like a report card or a diploma. The opinion also indicated that payment of a school fee is an obligation of the parents and not of the student. In the case of the writer, this opinion Is about 38 years too late. We had to pay for a high school basketball sweat suit that someone stole out of our gym locker before school authorities would Issue us our high school diploma. BASKETBALL RECRUITING Eagle Orove Eagle — A couple of years ago this column had an Item suggesting that the Iowa conference of junior colleges should do something about setting up some restrictive rules about recruiting of athletes. At the time we were thinking about some of our closer neighbors and had not seen or heard of Burlington junior college's program. But Saturday night we had an introduction to some real high pressure and productive recruiting results. Following is a line up of the Burlington junior college basketball team and the home towns of each player as listed on the official program. Roger Blalock, 6'6", Chicago, III. Michael Campbell, 6'1", Fairfield. Gary Graham, 5'9", Burlington. Phillip Harris, 6'9", Albany, N. Y. Richard Loghry, 6'2", Burlington. James Roche, 6'2", Newton, Mass. Milan Vorkaplch, 6'2", McKeesport, Pa. Virgil Watklns, 6'2", Detroit, Michigan. Samuel Williams, 6'4", Detroit, Michigan. There were, only throe boys from the state of Iowa on the squad and only one of these three ever got into the game. The top scorer with 32 points was the boy from Albany, New York. It would be interesting to know how boys from Massachusetts and Pennsylvania and New York — let alone Michigan and Chicago ever heard of Burlington junior college. There Is one obvious conclusion in connection and that is the National Intercollegiate Athletic Associations stringent rules on scholarship for entrance into a four year college. Boys playing under NCAA rules have to have a certain grade point in the ACT tests to enter. This rule has intensified junior college recruiting so that boys who are unable to meet the four year scholastic regulations are now frequently going to junior colleges that will take them to get their grades in order before they go on to a four year college athletic program. At any rate it would be Interesting to know the high school grade averages, the ACT tests scores and the scholarship program in effect at Burlington In relation to these players on the Burlington team. NOT SO PARTISAN Waterloo Courier — Governor Hughes has a remarkable aptitude for voiding narrow partisanship in emphasizing the common in- Interests of lowans rather than their conflicting interests. While this ability has obviously paid off in a political sense, we do not think it is entirely a contrived approach. Rather it also represents cfh attitude by a man who naturally avoids the rancor and bitterness of partisan political debate. In addressing the Iowa Farm Bureau recently, Hughes talked as much like a Republican as a Democrat. He declared that lowans want a "prudent, pay-as-you-go program of progress," Including: "The best possible administration of the state's vast highway program . . . expanded vocational-technical education to train our young people . . . humane, competent attention to the problems of the mentally ill, the aged, the handicapped and the needy" and "a sound conservation program." We're supposed to be the most civilized Christian nation on earth, but still can't deliver payrolls without an armored car — Dallas'County Newt. FOX AND ABOUf TEENAGERS by C. D. Smith Don't Give Up On "Busy" Parents THE WEEK'S LETTER: "Mon ey seems to be * big factor with parents these days ... so much so they spend more and more time trying to make "ends meet" »nd less and less time with their own children, teaching them many of the important things about life they need to know now, as well as preparing them for the future. My question is this: what can a teenager do to supplement the training received in public and religious schools to give them additional guidance that parents fail to give?" OUR REPLY: There is no real substitute for parental guidance, and no excuse for parents to become so "busy" they don't have "time" to give their children the guidance and help they need. "I don't have time" is just another way of saying "I don't want to be bothered." A good relationship between parents and children depends upon "communication." Such a relationship is difficult to establish if children are "afraid" to take problems and questions to parents; if parents are hesitant to discuss "delicate" matters with their children. The first step toward achieving a good relationship can be made by the parent who shows a willingness and inclination to talk—and to listen. The teenager who thinks parent* are too "busy," or just aren't interested, may be surprised at how parents will come "through" in response tp a particular question or a particular problem. No one has a ready answer to every teenage question, every teenage problem . . . but no one can possibly be more concerned than the responsible parent.

FROM THE FILES OF THE UPPER DES MOINES March 8, 1945 A survey of the food situation for 1945andforthe winter months of 1946 boiled down to this fact: If families wanted to eat, they must grow their foods. 50 blue points per person each month was less than one-tenth the vegetables and fruits recommended for a minimum low income diet.

Sur- NEWLY-RETIRED MAN PENS LOVE LETTER TO HIS WIFE A letter from a newly-retired man to his wife: Dearly Beloved: In coming home with my pen sion, to live with you for 24 hours a day, I do what I wanted to do the day I married you and what I've wanted to do these 40 years since. I didn't marry you so that I could work. I worked so that I could marry you and live with you. In these 40 years I figure that 100,000 hours of this pleasure have been taken from me—that's about how many hours I've been away on the job since we married. In the retirement years that stretch out before us I intend that we live so fully that I get some of that pleasure back. I am beholden to you for many things: that I am alive at 65, because you made me wear the overshoes and petted me through my illnesses; that I held my job until 65, because you kissed me off to U every morning and home from it at night . . . except for that night in 1946 when you threw the frying pan at me; that no matter what difficulties I had at the company I kept my pride, because you always told me I was right when everybody all the way down to the office boy knew I wasn't; that you never worried me about other men — not too much, that is; that you never spent more than I could make. What I have—insurance, pension, savings, everything — is certainly half yours. Or more. You have earned it. I think you are much like our sterling knives and forks. The more I use you and the older you grow, the lovelier you get. I'm afraid you are stuck with me for the 20-odd years I expect to live. And I'm glad you are. With that off my chest, I'd like to suggest to you a couple of things: I was considered a fairly important man at the company. Don't make me a flunky at home. I'll do any menial task you do . . . just not all of them, at your bidding. You have many women friends drifting in for visits. Will you please make them understand that you are their hostess but I am not their host. That I don't have to greet them, sit down with them, or say good-by, but can go on about my affairs. And on this subject, will you please stop the notion that I can be chauffeur for all your maiden friends who don't have cars. How did they get around before I retired? Finally, we have two fine, vacant bedrooms since the children grew up and left. I would like one of these, bed and all, as my own private hideway. Not as a private bedroom—I prefer you—but as a place to steal a nap, accumulate junk and stuff, throw things on the floor, or escape for some peace and quiet. Give me these things, give me a little time to adjust, and I'll be the finest fellow you ever retired with. Devotedly, Your Loving Husband New GOLDEN YEARS M-P»*» tookltl now rt»q>.
