4-Algene (lo.) Upptr D*t Molnw Thursday, Od. 14, 1965 STRICTLY BUSINESS by New Immigration Bill Congrsis has now passed a new immigration bill, which while not changing the totals to be allowed to enter the United States from other countries, does make some basic changes. Under the new law about 290,000 persons a year will be allowed to enter. Under previous law, tome 260,000 a year could enter. But It seems there are tome peculiar twists to the new law, |ust coming to light. We'll wager the law in its entirety was of such length that not too many members of Congress read It all the way through. It seems that the revised law gives a bigger break to a different class of nationalities and to those with relatives here, which may be to the good. It also switches the lineup so that our oldtlme friends In western Europe and Scandinavia have fewer immigrants. A larger number will be permitted from Italy and the Mediterranean and such places as Japan and China (how they would get out of China is not explained). Also, the law removes bans on epileptics and mentally retarded relatives of U.S. citizens. We are a bit Inconsistent. On the one hand we have a Poverty Program, and a Job Corps program, to train and find jobs for unfortunates, and we are trying to stem thi do of mental cases in every way possible; then we turn around and Increase immigration quotas, Including loopholes for mental cases from abroad. Maybe they know what they're doing in Washington but sometimes you wonder. He's Reelection Candidate Orundy Register — No need to ask whether our U.S. Senator Jack Miller will be candidate for reelection next year. The many speaking engagements he has been filling In Iowa the past few months Is proof that he doesn't want Iowa voters to forget him. We hear little of our other senator in Washington and we are sure that many Iowa people have forgotten his name. He may try to get re-acquainted with Iowa people if he should run for office again In 1968. Have Dump Trouble Too I Ortonvllle (Minn.)

Certainly, one of the most beautiful approaches into our city is that from the South, as you enter from the area of the Granite View Farm on Highway 7-75. It has been brought to our attention that In this very vicinity, not far from the highway, Ortonville's new city dump is being planned. Truly, It is hard to vision this beautiful countryside being marred with the eye-sore, and odor-sore, of a city dump. It is our sincere hope another location can be found — one more removed from a beauty spot and more remote from a highway leading Into town. Mew Election Schedule Indianola Tribune — Next year lowans will have their first chance to test the new primary election date established by the 1965 session of the General Assembly. Primary election day, which heretofore has been the first Monday in June, has been shifted to the first Tuesday after the first Monday in Sep. tember. Thus, instead of a five month interval between primary and general elections, we will now have about two months. Because of the election date change, revised schedules have been established for filing nomination papers, the holding of caucuses, and all associated activities. Generally speaking, those deadlines that formerly fell In late March or early April have now moved to June or July. County and state political conventions will be held in the late summer Instead of early summer. There has long been a feeling that the spring schedule of political activity was too early to gain the participation it should have. Proponents of a later date have felt a change would stimuate attention. Likewise, the long wait between the primary and general elections, In this age of Instant communications, has led to unnecessarily long and expensive campaigns. The new schedule should lead to campaigns that will be snappier, more interesting, and less expensive than those of the past. On the other hand, a lot of activity will be compressed Into the months of August, September and October. It will take more than one year to get acquainted with the new schedule, and there will no doubt be some problems. It will be Interesting to see how the voters react to this change. DOESNT MAKE SENSE Exchange — People In the Middle West, far removed from the seat of international statecraft and diplomacy at Washington, are by no means lax about reading current history with its political overtones. We can hardly understand the tortured reasoning by which our government continues to play big brother with the Indonesian government, while nursing bruised shins in return. Latest maneuver is a decision to renew for five years "atoms for peace" assistance to President Sukarno's militant, Communist lined government. Peace still is a nice sounding word, and its procurement is worth both money and effort, but there are limitations on how many cheeks a nation may turn for voluntary smiting. With Indonesia we have passed the limit. Not only will we continue providing nuclear assistance to Indonesia, the recently completed reactor at Bandung was built with a $350,000 U.S. grant. There is an agreement for inspectors of the Atomic Energy Commission to check, periodically, to see that the actions are peaceful. Sukarno's distain for pieces of paper has been demonstrated before. These visitations could be cut off abruptly. The difference between peaceful and military uses of nuclear energy are only of degree and Intent, Training Indonesian scientists in nuclear science, in view of Sukarno's efforts against Malaysia and his expressed greater designs for conquest, is highly questionable. So long as we reward the bad boys of the juvenile nations — what can be offered as a bonus to those who behave? FOR AND ABOUT TEENAGERS by C. D. Smith Parents Say 'No' to Sunday School MOTHER, \/ ~1 SUNPAY THE WEEK'S LETTER: "I have been reading the article "FOR AND ABOUT TEENAGERS" for e long time I have a problem I hope you can solve. I have been going to Sunday School for several months to a church near where I live I met a girl at Sunday School. My parents found out about her and they do not like her and have stopped me from going to Sunday School. I like Sunday school. and not just because of the girl I think it is interesting. 1 told this to my parents but they still say I can never go back to Sunday School but must go where they say until 1 grow up. I'll soon be 18. Don't you think 1 should be allowed to go where 1 want 9 What should I do? I like this girl very much and 1 cannot quit her as easily as rny parents think What should I do?" OUR REPLY: Examine your conscience very thoroughly De lermine if you have been honest with yourself and with your par- ents. Have you, perhaps even sub-consciously, been using Sunday School as an excuse to see this girl? Would you not still use it as an excuse if such were possible? Your parents should have no objection to your going to Sunday School. Isn't there another church in your town which offers you the same opportunity to attend Sunday School? Have you investigated this possibility? Have you discussed it with your parents? If your parents object to the girl, they have a reason. It maybe nothing more than the fact they do not feel you should become too interested in any girl. See if you can. by approaching your parents sensibly ami matter-of-fact, find the reason Be prepared to look at things from "their side of the fence" — remember they have a responsibil ity tn do not that which makes you happiest Inn .that which is best for you It you have a teenage problem you want lo discuss 01 un ob»ervaiion to makw qdJicia vour 'a"vt 10 FOR AND ABOUT TEENAGERS COMMUNITY AND SUBURBAN PKESS SERVICE FRANKFORT KV. ci ry POST P m "There's a Mr. Occupant out here complaining about being deluged with circulars!" from HISTORY'S SCRAPBOOK DATES AND EVENTS FROM YESTERYEARS Mali Ifari was shot by a firing squad, October 15, 1917.

Some husbands, in fact, had fa ther the Army would draft them. This week a husband spoke out on the matter: "My name must remain anonymous for obvious reasons," he said. "But my problem surely is not mine alone. Thousands of other husbands must share it. "1 found on retirement, after • strenuous career, that I was too close to the every-day activities at home. I had looked forward to retirement, hoping it would furnish me the leisure and freedom of mind to read, keep up with current affairs, listen to discussions . . . and thus update myself in my general education. "However, things have not worked out well. It seems that while I prepared myself for what I wanted to do in retirement, and how I would use the spare time, my family did not. This particularly applies to my wife, who feels frustrated that she cannot share with me a new life of serenity that my financial security has produced. "She keeps asking: 'What do I get out of your retirement?' And she stresses the fact that her daily duties have not changed. She naturally feels her sense of responsibility in managing the home, but when I offer to take over some small chores she shrugs me off. She says I am not capable of doing housework, and that I would only make her job worse. "What can be done about this endless jealousy of a wife . . . and the friction it causes at home?" Well, a man could go back about ten years and start over. It might take this ,long to condition a wife to her husband's retirement, especially if she is inclined to be jealous of the benefits — exclusively his own — that he will get at 65. This jealousy is far more prevalent than most husbands suspect. Many very good wives quietly burn in resentment over the one- sided blessings of retirement. In the main, the husband is to blame when friction moves into his marriage after retirement The pension bf HIS. The ment. The pension is HIS. The Social Security is HIS, and his wife shares in' it only because she has him. The retirement is HIS, as tribute at the retirement party, his gold watch, and service certificate prove. The husband who comes home with this small-boy complex — as many do — is going to run into a buzz-saw. Because the woman who married him as an equal to share, and who thinks that over the 40 or so years of their marriage she has contributed some overshoes, some meals, and a bit of tender-loving-care to HIS pension, is going to rebel, even if silently, at the proposition that she is to be the underpriv ileged partner of his retirement. So for ten years or so before retirement a smart husband would start talking in terms of OUR pension, OUR retirement, and making plans for retirement that — as all their previous life together—includes them both . . .
