EDITOR J I00CK IN 00[HE BOX I've been thinking a lot about political polls recently, so I made it a point to ,ask several people if tli6y had ever been polled--or if they have ever known anyone who has been poUed regarding their political preference. So far the answers have "an been "no." Thinking back, I don't believe I have ever talked to ANYONE who has ever mentioned being polled. Granted we tive in but a small part of the country whereever we may be) but if a ma- jority of voters lave had e ermnce to polit- These little guys deserve a lot of credit, as far as I'm concerned. Carrying papers is about as good a way for a young boy to start learning about business as there is. A lot of good men have started out in life carrying newspapers. I wonder how lan,g it will take before the fans in Oklahoma start calling Gomer Jo,es their new football coach "Gomer Pyle," ater ,the television stu >e.

Dan Evans made a slip here during his Cheney visit last Friday  but it was- n't the )olitical kind. While chatting with friends at Re )ublican Headquar- ters, Evans spilled his coffee all over City Attorney Merritt Johnson. Merritt didn't mind at all, but Evans was quick to offer him a hand to sop up the mess. Evans, at this point, looks like a cinch to put the run on Roselfini and his crew. He got his biggest response during his speech at the City Hall when he prcmised to make the rose a "'respectable" flower again in this state, in reference to the governor's penchant for wearing a rose in his lapel. Tip to hunters: About 10 miles from Che- ney or the road to Malden there is a spot where chinks are ,as thick as flies on a meat wagon. Saturday morning, about 11 o'clock, I saw one bunch of some 15 pheasants, about half Of them roosters. Not a hnter was in sight.

Cheney ireman Ray Stein,.er hit it on the head nat long ago when he said the greatest iob for firemen is fire prevention not fire fighting. In this respect, the Cheney Fire De artment has done "a fine job over the years. The ],ast bad fire ,here Was bout three years ago when the Inland Off & Refining bulk lan.t buz'n, ed to the ground. Knock on wood. Radar seems like a harsh way to stop the college speeders blasting into Che- ney, but it apparently is a necessary step. Not long ago oncilman Norm Hove recommended that radar be installed here, with the cooperation of the State Patrol. "Business" has been good in Jack Crabb's Police Court lately. Maybe the commuters will wise up, but I doubt it. As Hove pointed out several weeks ago, the possibility of a fatal accident involving a Chancy child is the prime consideration for installing radar. The recent fl'urry of arrests seems to bear out his ominous concern.

Some years back the late Dale Carnegie wrote a best sell- ing book entitled "How to Win Friends and Influence People." But apparently now the U.S. State Department has come out with a work on "How to Create Enemies and Confuse People." At least that seems to be the gist of a recent statement by Rep. Richard Poff of Vir- ginia. He report- ed that the U.S. has sign- ed deplomat Lc agreements with the corn- C. W. Harder munist government of Ruma- nia to authorize the sales of American oil refineries, petro- chemical plants and synthetic rubber factories to the com- munist nation. The U.S. State Dept. with one of those curious twists of reasoning hich can seemingly only emanate from the tortuous cerebrations of this Alice-in- Wonderland complex, hailed this move as a fine thing be- cause Rumania has sided with Red China against Moscow. Of course, the U.S. State Dept. recognizes Red Russia but does not recognize Red China, and somehow it is im- puted that it is far better for Rumania to be Red with Chine than be Red with Russia. But ff thL4 is confusing to anyone the=ita[ confu was yet to come, Rap. loft report.

This loan was to be repaid in 1964, but Russia welshed on making good. $ $ * 80 on May 22, 1964, the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture announced that a license had been granted Russia to re-export 160,000 tons of the wheat sold by the U.S. to Russia, with the costs partially subsidized by the American taxpayers, to Rumania. Now the plot thickens. The U. S. State Dept. entered into a trade agreement with Red Ru- mania to help tear it away from Red Russia. But on the other hand, the U. S. taxpayer is assessed to help Russia pay off part of her obligations to Rumania. $ $ * So now, according to Rep. Poff, everything is quite clear. The United States has per- mitted Russia to use American wheat to retire it's debt to Red Rumania. This, of course, helps Russia stay on a more friendly basis with Rumania, but in the meantime, the U. S. has taken A aat00JLetters To The Edi00 I15 ///AWI An open letter to ,all p."

Therefore, we ask yaar steps to encourage Red Ru- mania to become more friendly with Red China, and bolster Red Chtna's influence.

Nation's PTA's Ask: Join, Help Children Membership Offers New Challenge PTA's throughout the nation are offering a challenging new invitation this fall to member- ship in an organization that works for all children and youth. With membership in the PTA comes an opportunity to take part in activities designed to attack the problens that mosl critically affect children's wel- fare today. Says Mrs. Jennelle Moorhead president of the National Con- gress of Parents and Teachers: "The scientific, technological, and social revolution of our time make it more imperative than ever that every child re- ceive the highest advantages in physical, mental, social, and spiritual education." Still, she notes, "nowhere, not even in the most favored com- munity, are all children served well or equally well." That's why the National PTA Action Program for the coming three years is to be planned and written by PTA leaders ant members throughout the nation --with counsel from leaders of other organizations that share in some measure, the PTA's con- cern for children and their wel- fare. The suggestions for PTA ac- tivity will be flexible enough, Mrs. Moorhead believes, so that "every community can benefit by the broad experience repre- sented in the parent-teacher movement." She sees PTA's as "uniquely qualified" to pinpoint each com- munity's need for services to children--and to * help meet these needs effectively. --Do children face inadequate school facilities ? The PTA may work to secure funds for new buildings, scoring like the par- ent-teacher association in Gay- lord, Michigan, which won com- munity support of a $50,000 bond issue. Do children from deprived families fall behind in school for lack of encouragement or opportunity to study? PTA's can establish a study center like that formed by Chicago's South- east Council of PTA's, which provides books and desks and even student tutors from the nearby University of Chicago. ---Do current movies or tele- vision programs threaten chil- dren's moral and spiritual val- ues? PTA's can plan a survey of TV-viewing and movie-going like the one conducted by the Valley Area Council of PTA's in Ohio--a two-year effort in- volving nearly 5,000 parents and students in the Cincinnati i area--and make their views known to producers and distrib- utors. Do children growing up in the U. S. today have too little respect for law and individual liberty? The PTA Magazine helps parents provide the basis for developing self-discipline in children and understanding bet- ter what is involved in safe- guarding individual rights and liberties. And PTA's in com- munities large and small pro- vide a forum for bringing to- gether parents, educators, re- [ligious leaders and civic old- cials, directing attention needs of children and the seasoned leadership to equalize and improve to those children. -li That's the challenge imve in every invitation, ,'Joi PTA." It's an invitation being this fall by more than local PTA's in the Congress of Parents ers. By accepting tion millions of find many avenues of children. Through ices children benefit ablyin physical and health, spiritual good citizenship. "With more children ever before growing ty," Mrs. Moorhead "more dedicated ] teachers than evez needed in the PTA." Support Your Local PTA Ch,00ney School District | |
