We hope n.w that the. i, ce is: broken we will ,have several more lo- cals orga,nized throughout the state. The intere.t creaed by .the organization of the South- wegt Spokan WCD atlMltary: seems high."

Board Diredors Suggesls Change In Meeting Dates Director Richard Russell has suggested C heney School Board meetings be held the first Friday of each month in- stead of the presen system of meeting each second and fourth Wednesday monthly. He exp_ine,d ,his request Calling For Wage Change Administration salaries in the Cheney School District must be reduced, the School Board decided .at last week's meeting. Direcor E. H. Wagoner read a resolution which said a salm'y redtrction must be made before harmony can prevail in the district. The letter had been read to Dr. Richard C. Langrton, the superintendent, and his assist- ,ant, Lowell Poore, in an execu- tive session called shortly a.fter the regular meeting came to order. " The reolutio was put to a vote aml eaawied 4-1, with Mrs. Earl Hilton voting nega- tive. Voting in favor were Wag- oner, Mrs. Henry H. Mumaw, Richard Russell arr Carmen Stewart. Says Change Needed Wagoner said the atton was being aken because the School Board was elected after three bond issues were defeat- ed in the district ,and voers felt "th, a there should 'be a change in the administraonl at .the last board elecUon." Wagoner said "this wa not immediately accomplished a,nd eventually I found myself on this merry-go-round. My posi- tion was that we must give the superirtendent another year on his contract--then we must all join hands and work to- gether in lmrmony or t.e good of the children and the District. This approach was rapidly proven wrong and all indications were that relations s00mn,00d from reading the i Democrats est edition of "The Legal which requires second class 1 districts to meet tee first F- r n da, yofeachmanth, ti Che y Special or adjourned meet- n e ings may be called or d- n missed won needled, he said. Democratic The Cheney Council, with Bernard Schons as first president, has been formed here. Mrs. laymond Whtfie'ld, vie prosident, sNd ho coun- cil 'has petitioned the Spokane County Cencral Democratic Committee or a charter. Pur- pose of the council "is to co- ordinate and stimulate Demo- crztic activity in Cheney," she said. Officers ,are Schwas, presi- dent; Mrs. Whiffield, vice president, and Hemw D. Kass, secreCary-treaurer. Other raembers include Jmes MeKeeh, an and Kenneth Hessom from preein, ct 1; Ted Sallbovn, iwer.act 2; 1Vim. Richard Miller, Mrs. Cyton S'lav ,and Berna Kingsley, precinct 3; W"ffiiam Drum- mond, precinct 4; Alan Acock, Ttmmas Wood ad Rick Ran- son, represeatLn.g E.ern Washington Slate College Yotmg Democrat, and Carl Rudolf, lng-"time Dmeraic off, e-holder. Russell had llked with the county superintenden of schoois who told m the law is still in effect but nobody follows it. He said he thought the law should be followed and Mrs. Henry H. Mumaw ,greed with him. Mrs. Earl Hilton ,advised them the }aw is being studied by the Sta,te School Directors and it is cer- tain to be changed at the next meeting of the state legisla- ture. The suggestion was tabled until the Feb. 26 School Board meeting, in order to acquire a up,man on the matter from the s, tate superintendent of: schools. J. B. Ellingsworth Dies In California d. B. FAlinth, former manager of he Chen ey Grange Sply, has died in Salinas, Ca}if., friend learned here this week. Mr. Etlingsworth .died early in January, they re- tmrted. between the board and admin- istration would worsen and eveas would indicate thee they are incompatible." Salaries Too High "Administrative salaries ave too higl%" Wagoner cOnn- ued. This can be measured $32,000 (the total es) against $23,000 for a,vera ,in our class district. This creates an image of firmncial in're. sponsi'bili'ty of the Slmol Board in the eyes of the voter. It indicates that if the Board is so remiss in their duties in that area, how would }t ,be pos- sible to ertrust Smm wh suh a sum of money as a bin" .hlia program would require?" He then listed three "sol- tiaras" to "the problem." They were: 1. Abandon the building proram?--no. It i.s deemed essential to our education pro- grass. 2. Fire the Board?--not likely, they are the duly elect- ed representatives of the Dis- trict. 3. Reduce the salaries ef the the Administration? -- that seems the best passible soh- tion. Voters Have Say Wagonex opened his re- marks by saying "As a democ- racy e ",ttal aulority is vested in the v'%fi ,public w,ho delegates he respanbil- ity and u.tlmriy  the 6ehoal  who in turn it to member, il' aumze:y is vested in the ,aing pudgier- they are our :besseS--he must be listened to--and they oan speak wih mthority. Th.ey sa no three times to a bond issue. They said ,tat there should be a change in the ,admirtistrtiort at the last boaa'd meetirg?' Poare's contract expires at the rd of he curren,t school year and must be re-negoti.t" ed this spring. Dr. Langton's contract runs through the 1964-65 school year and must be re-negoti, ated the Spring of 1965. Petition Invited Wagmer invited a recall pe- tition to remove the current directors if such a petition is desired. He said lack f such acUon would be construed a a vote of cortidenve in the School Board. Some mention was made of starting a peti- tion endorsing the S2hool Board. About 70 ,persans attended the meet'rag which was held in Cheney at  A(hninistration Building. Camdeable corn- men followed reading of the resolutions--from mixed afil- lotions. Moral Standards Wanted By Both Men And Women When Picking Mate 'rince first of all be of the Pro- ing important decisions; but did NOT wan.t in a marriage some parental .advice on the the advice given by their par- of ngton State -ECTION peoole look partner? do t regard as most tend to empha- and personal- moral char- Wlo is ph, ;- neat, w a good h,or In contrast, s amhi- tins a a home promise r. are on of are in eernnt with m Other stud- patterns in e.n COnsider most m a mate are: sel- flshness a, nd irmonsiderate-' ness, lacking personal cleanli- ness, lacking ,homemaking ability, low moral sta,ndards, and ow inte,enee. Women find these traits most undesirable in a mar- riage partner: selfishness and in,considerateness, lacking in ambii'on or lazy, eonceitness, self-cen.teredness, low moral stardards, and lacking person- al eleainess. Men want a wife approxi- mately two years younger than themselves, and women prefer a mate Slightly more than two years older. Men tend to prefer slightly lorrger engagements than women. Relatively ew of both sexes, however, want the en- gagement to 1,a more .than 18 months. One factor which seems to lay a part in the choice of a [arriage partner is the image t ,an ideal mate. Over 91 per cent of the men and 93 per cent of the women in our study had some image of the idealized characteristics of the person they wished to mar- ry. One girl described her ideal mate as fo11'os: The man I marry must testan faith. He must be in- telligent, have a college edu- cation, be ambitious, and have a pretty good idea of what he plans to do with his life. I must feel he is superior to me--not that he should hold this over me--but I feel that the husband should be slightly superior to the wife and the wife should honest- ly feel that he is. My hus- band will also have to be kind and understanding and be able to cope with my oc- casional spells of moodiness. He must like children and want to have them. I would like him to be about 5' 11" and be reasonably attractive and well-groomed. Aniother rl wrote: I would like my mate to be one or two years older than I, and to have a secure job he enjoys. He must like to save for I do not want fi- nancial problems to ieopar- dize our marriage. He must be someone on whom I can rely on and confide in. He must be loyal to his family but not be dominated by them. He must have a mind of his own, capable of mak- he must not be domineer. ing, for I also have a mind of my own. He must be someone who will readily accept responsibility and know how to take over in a crisis. A young man commenced: My ideal is a girl who can love me for what I am. One who can understand my problems and be a help and comfort to me. I want a home and family life differ. ent from the home I came from, and my ideal is one who can make this possible for me. She must have a pleasing personality and be of my religious faith. She must be sincere and not drink or smoke to excess. Naturally I would expect my wife to have the usual basic qualities: love for children, good homemaking ability, beauty, and the like. I may be asking for too much; but marriage is for a long time, and I want the best mate ! can get. One girl reported she had no specific image of her ideal mate, but she knew what she parer. She wrote: I do not have a specific image in mind of what I want but I do know what I don't want. I don't want a man to be of a different re- ligious faith. I don't want a man who seeks only com- panionship and not children because a marriage is not fulfilled without children. This would also show his selfishness. I do not want a man who is unable to accept the responsibilities of a hus- band and father. I do not want a man who is suspic- ious. He must trust me with- out question. I do not want a weak man that I will have to baby the rest of our lives; but I also do not want a domineering man who will make me his slave. Over half of the students reported their ideal was based primarily on their observa- ti'on of bth parents. Other sources of ideal-hnages were dating experience, and obser- vation of married couples, friends and people in general. Approximately 75 per cent of the young people received choice of a mate; and where oly one paren ve the ad- vice, that paren was .usually the mother. Men were most often ad- vised to marry someone with these qualifiea,tions: same re- ligious fai'th, someone who will be a good wife and ,h(me- maker, good aanily back- ground, ,has a pleaing disposi- tion arid persormity. Women were most often advised to seek a husband meeting these specifications: persoaaliCy, good family back- ground. Ma, ry studen elt .the par- ental ,advice received was sound. One girl wrote: My mother has given me very sound advice on the choice of a marriage part- ner. She has told me what it's like to marry someone with traits we both dislike. It has happened so often in marriage of my relations and friends, and she has carefully pointed this out to me. I know that her sound advice will help me choose a suitable mate. Some, however, question ents. For example: My mother has told me to be sure to select a'mate of the same religion, one who has a good job, and who is dependable. However, I feel that she is too interested in having me marry someone with money rather than someone I love. In this way, I don't feel that she is re- garding me. She only wants prestige for hersorf. My fath- er, on the other hand, wants me to marry whom ever I fall in love with. Another common,ted: The advice my mother has always given me is to find someone who can give you security and a nice home. She doesn't seem to think love makes too much differ- ence, just companionship should be enough. ! don't feel that it is, because if you love someone, you would not need everything right away in order to be happy.
