EDITOR J IN IHE BOX Spokane ununity College is scheduled to start a 26-game basketball schedule this weekend, its. first entry into organized col- legiate athletics, and one wuld .hary knees the Spartans exist thus far. Lots of people comphin ,about newspapers, and with good reason in many instances. The Spokane press and its treatment of the new college is about the best example of press indifference fltat comes to mind. The tele- vision stations, quite the conCrary, have been quite generous in their coverage of the new college. Spokane Community College, operatirg fur the second year, will enter the Washington State Jtmier College Athletic circuit as a regular member this season. The Sporrans, ,as they are called, also hve games sched- uled with the Washgton State freshmen, a couple of Carmdi'an colleges and an Ore- gon juaior college, or two. One of the first rules `a yonng reporter learns  to "localize." This means that com- munity news takes preference over state and national developments. As is usually the case, unfortunately, state .and national coverage is much easier, simply because no reporting, or "digging," is required. t doesn't take much talent to "tear" wire copy and send it out to the composing roam. For this reason, as the layman probably can readily recognize, many daily nevspapers are loaded with state and n, ational news, while 1,goal nd regional news suffers because of aziness and indif- ference. The Spokane press treatment of the new college is certainly a prime example of this type of "desk reportin'g." The new college, to be sure, is going to produce some out- standing athletic teams in the not-so-distant future. The basketball coach and athletic director is Hank Coplen, who coached at DaverLport last yar where his cagers ,had a fine reg- ular season, but stumbled in district tonrna- ment play ,d missed the state classic at Spokane. Coplen coached at Columbia Basin Jun- ior C,allege a few years ago, where his squads consistently won the league championship. He developed a fine recruiting program at CBJC, Which is maintained to this day. 0o1> len, by the way, is a graduate of Eastern Washington State College and is a well l softball pitcher. He used to play on Bill's Tavern town basketball team. His assistant is Jerry Martin, also well known in Cheney and in athletic circles throughout the Northwest. Martin lived in Cheney last summer while he was managing a swimming pool ifl Spokane. Mrtin was an assistant football coach at Washington State University a couple of seasons ago until the entire coaching staff was dismissed foll, oring Jim Sutherlard's firing. Martin also coached .at CBJC, where he was an assistant to Dwight Pool on the Junior Rose Bowl team of 1962. Martin is presently organizing a football program, and the school will enter the league full-bore in 1966• In the interim, he will be head track coach in the spring. Meanwhile, the Spaans are the forgotte'a school in Spokane because of the daffy news- papermen, who seem te bask in their "bil- ity" to heap praise on Notre Dame, while they are missing a good story developing in their own backyard. 40 Years Ago 1924 The Cheney Free Press Print- ing phnt is mroving this week from its present location on First street to the flew Ma- sonic Temple buffg orL Nor- mat .avenue. With the lease for the first floor and bse- ment secured by the Free Press while he new building was yet on paper, this portion ot the building was construct- ed to meet the needs of a mod- ern newspaper plant• The new model 14 linotype which was purchased recentb' at a cost of many thousands of dKars, and the almost new Cransn press and Meatges newspaper folder will occupy the back shop.

(July 1, 1964-July 1, 1965) March of 0000olunteers Help Parents of Birth Defects Children Picture a child crippled by a severe birth defect. A tragedy ? Unmistakably. But how severe are the effects on the parents of this child? What is the extent of their shock and suffering? Dr. Hans Zellweger, a well- known professor of pediatrics and genetics at the State Uni- versity of Iowa College of Medicine and medical director of the March of Dimes-sup- ported Birth Defects Center there, reports that in his ex- perience 80 per cent of the parents of defective babies harbor unwarranted feelings of guilt• He believes that they, like their afflicted child, need help. For that reason he is about to organize group therapy "clas- ses" in which troubled parents can talk among themselves and with medical experts to discuss the problems created by this family tragedy• Dr. Ze ger points out that more tha  quarter of a mil- lion babie hre born every year in the United States with birth defects--among them blind- ness, deafness; missing extrem- ities, imperfect spines and nerv- ous systems, and many other crippling disorders• Feelings MARCH OF DIMES volunteers aid in easing the psychological and other problems confronting parents of children with birth defects. Above, at Mankato, Minn., parents and members of March of Dimes chapter listen to lecture on birth defects by Dr. Warren Warwick, pediatrician, of University of Minnesota Medical School. Help Is Expanding Help for those grief- and guilt-stricken parents is being provided by March of Dimes chapters on a growing scale in several sections of the country. "Actually, most of these parents aren't in need of medi- cal treatment, but they are in need of some psychiatric help and the opportunity to talk over their problems with others similarly afflicted," according to Dr. Virginia Apgar, director of the division of congenital malformations of The National Foundation-March of Dimes. "Also, they are in need of a healthy dose of truth about birth defects," she adds. "That truth is that so far as medical of guilt and humiliation in the science knows, by far the ms- parents of these children are jority of parents of a defective commonplace ann nave oeen baby have nn ra f r for centuries He explains that nr h rohro - t nnit . ." ..... oac.. the ......... , .... . ..... unfortunately cnls. sense,, o[the finger of suspicion at the sname perslscs even in cne on- I other nartnor in marriage " ; lightened" 20th century, al- I .- ,-; .... ...°". though the lndlvldual pedlatrl-  ...... • toda - -- h - rive mlnnesoa counues now clan y uoes an e or sne "o co b " "" hold meetings of parents each can z m a¢ ;¢. month to discuss means of rid- ding themselves of their un- justified feelings of self-re- i proach. Usually they are also addressed by a pediatrician and are informed about the progress of March of Dimes research grants in birth de- fects at leading university- affiliated medical centers and laboratories across the nation. At Houston, Tex., the Harris County Chapter has establishedi a Spina Bifida Educational:K' sociation which meets monthly in a seminar room at Texas Children's Hospital. Fifteen to 20 sets of parents attend the evening lecture, exchange "traumatic" experiences, and discuss such practical problems as getting their handicapped small children into the ele- mentary schools. Volunteers Welldnformed Up to 75 parents attend the monthly gatherings of the Child Development Center Parents Group, at Children's Hospital, San Francisco. Half of the necessary financial sup- port comes from the funds of the March of Dimes-financed Birth Defects Center at the hospital. All the sponsoring chapters find enthusiastic and well-in- ormed volunteers at these meetings on whom to call for help during the March of Dimes campaign each Jenuary when fundsare raised nation- ally. • Other March of Dimes chap- ters around the country are planning similar projects to banish needless feelings of guilt among parents of children with defects. /t]th Washington Bar Asaoclat|on THE STOLEN MONEY Sam, .a safecracker, had just burglarized the .local drugstore and was on his way home with the money. Just as he was parking his car, a crook named Loe stuck a gun in Sam's ribs anti,robbed him of the cash• The police soon captured Louie, arid in no time he found himself standing trial for the crime of robbing Sam. "What are you taking about," said Louie. "How can 1 be gu, ilty of robbing Sam,? Sam stole that money. It di 'dn t ] bebng to him anymore than it belonged to me." Can Louie be guilty of r0,b- bery in this case? Subject of Robbery Yes, said the Supreme Court of Hawaii in such a case• Stol- en money cn be the subject o.f robbery. One who steals money, which itsetf hlas been stolen by `another, may ,be prosecuted notv¢ithstanding the illegality of the pos,seon of his victim. One thief may be convicted of stealing from armther thief. If the taking was wrongful, it does rot matter who owned the prolerty. For the purpose of prosecu- tion, a thief in possession may be described as the owner when the goods have been sto- len from him by a second thief: One who has the right of pos- session as against a thie is, so far as the thief is concerned the owner. In this case Luie had brok- en the law by robbing Sam. This is still a crime even though Sam did rmt own the money. Louie lost the case. Conservation News By Richard H.
