A don may be re.heel tls week re- gadirrg rmn-renewal of Lowell lore's con- tract, or the matter may be carried to gher levels. But, in the .meantime, Che*ney's repu- talon is beginning to resemble the Colvtle school hassle which ,has raged for several years. The openin2 ,session of the public hearing last week at times took on ,the atm,oslhere of a Roman hoRday, as grown people--ma,ny of them highly-educatedfomad reason to break into gales of lauglter during Merritt Johnson's questioagng ,of Carmen Stewt. The school board found itself in the unique position of being defendant  judge during .the hearings, as Poore bad ,asked for a pub- lie hearing against the board's decisima to aboli ,kis position. This meant t2t during Stewat's time on the witness cha, no one was appointed to conduct the hearings. It was during this period thot a packed room found such delight. Johnn himsel finally had to caution the gallery again further, outbreaks or, as he put it, "you' eiaut your- selves out in the lall." This is an urffarturrate tuation, and one that rm nmCure person sotfld find very funny. At the very teat, R is a seviots macter tbat may very well have lgedrg after- effects in the district for years t 9 come. It is not a laughing ma*tev, and those who think i't is Imve a peeu,liar sense of humor. The school board has ,every ght, or it ShouM, to make decisions which it coaders best for the district. Peeve, too, h,as every right, as a citizen and an educar, to ques- on their decision if he feels it was unjust. Bu no one has the right to make a rrmk- cry ,of an urgortuate situation which, m the end result, could put a serious smear on the school district's integrity. Thoe wlm are looking ,for emteraimment would be much btter off to t,d R else- where. 40 Years Ago 1924 The Sons of Vterarm of Che- hey have framed the local camp the John C.

NurNly, these changes alo 'have clled The posthumous disclosure by General Douglas MacArthur is perhaps the biggest bomb- shell to explode in Washington since Pearl Harbor. The fact that there was treachery in Korea which cost thousands of American lives and ended the fiasco in a stalemate was per- haps not par- ticularly new. But the facts as to how the "sell out" was ac- e o m p I ished are interest- lng. While on one hand, this can be viewed as an C.W. Harder indictment of the British, it is perhaps well to put things in their proper perspective. During the time of Korea the British Labor government was in power, which takes in the so-calle4 liberals. Right after World War II the liberal agita- tors were able to remove Win- ston Churchill and put into con- trol the Labor Party. This was an interesting pe- riod in British history. The rail- roads, trucking, and other in- dustries were nationalized. So- cialized medicine came into effect. It also developed respon- sible posts in the British gov- ernment were given to sex de- viates who defected to Russia, and the daughter of a govern- ment leader married an Afri- Call. I After about six years of this, the British people, threw the Labor Party out of power and sought to remedy as much of the damage wreaked as pos- sible. England still suffers from the affects of this rule. i It was during this time that ! ( National Federation of Independent Susines General MacArthur's battle plans were given to the Chi- nese. Thus, this treachery was quite in keeping with the rest of the era of disgraceful conduct in Britain ,as it all goes togeth- er in one ball of wax. Of course, when the British people revolted against such seandaland put back intopower a responsible government, the U.S. State Department did its best to destroy the government, being even more bitter than it has been since Gen. DeGaulle ousted French Socialists. When Egypt's Nasser stele the Suez Canal, Prime Minis- ter Anthony Eden, a protege of Churchin, took quick action and would have had the Nasser sit- uation settled for all time to come within another 48 hours but was compelled to cease by the U S. who told him unless he stopped his drive to unseat Nasser, there would be armed American intervention. This toppled Eden's cabinet, but failed in the major objective of throwing out of office the Con- servative party. It is now to be expected that the American psuedo-liberals, like hyenas snapping at a dead lion, will do their utmost to nibble away at the towering MacArthur image. In fact, as soon as they feel safe, they will pop above ground again to launch attacks on the MaeArthur image. But no one shoud be particularly surprised that they do this, or with the wild, screaming claims they make, or over the lengths to which they will go seeking to destroy the lVlac- Arthur image.

Walt Horan from 100 mi,lkion Congressman, 5th District On April 9, by .a naov mar- gin of eight votes, 'he House of RepresenLatives passed I{ouse Resoluon 665, provid- ing for House ca ncu'vrence in Senate amendments to H. R. 6196, a bill to, among Other Chins, "revitalize tle cotton in- dustry." The Semate amend- meats embraced the so-oared Vol, untary Certificate Plan Wheat bill. It wa si*gned into law by the President. I have been one of chose who wangled 'to give the orig- i,ntal domestSc parJ.y plan a chrace. U rder this program, origin,ally proposed by the Ore- gon W:hot Growers League in cojunction wi'h other farm o r g a n i z a ions, certificates wouM be issued to supply a domestic food quo*ta. The Ore. gun Whe,t League, in a 1955 brochure entttled "Wheat," ex- plains among other things that the parity phn voud all0v farmers to grow vh, ea t their maximum capacity by ha'creas- ing domec human Wheat corsumption and feed con- sumption, n,d by expanding our export markets. The bro- chure a:tso states _t he dv- me,sic parity plan could be ,administered very eean,omie- a/ly, an'd im,rportntly, hat farmers w,old be subjected to I ordy a minimum ,o Goern- nlent controls. Parity Explained The d,omestic parity plan provided for 100 percent of p,arity for about 50 percent of each grower's production. The remainder of the grower's pro- duction would be sold 'at he m, arket price for export at competitive world paces, or for domestic tivest,ek eed. The 1955 brech'ure states that t:he d, omestic parity plan would: 1. Increase wheat f,or feed ribbons .on dresses were Nina ttobbs, Iaren Wevhan and L,grie He.wsoI.
