Accidents Claim Nine Iowa Lives on Weekend One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor Educations Two Top Assignments THIS visit with you is prompte by American Education Wee which is being observed at thi time In it I should like to consic er with you what I regard as th major assignments confron ing our schools colleges and um versities in the quarter centurj ahead I wont attempt to look be yond that The one which faces all state and practically every communit is how to find classroom space an qualified teachers for the tremen dous increase in our school popula tion these past few years Its re lated to the unprecedented numbe ofbabies born in America sine World War II This tidal wave is already beinj acutely felt in the lower grades Before we know it the swell wil move into our high schools am then it will engulf our institution of higher learning If America is to keep her placi In the sun if our way of life is i perpetuate itself if we are to win our longterm lifeanddeath con test with that most evil jphilosoph ever foisted upon mankind Com munism we must face up to thii challenge andmake No order of Business Desegregation J Problem Ill be coming back to this sub ject a little later But in the mean time I should like to consider with you the second major assignment which confronts American educa tion My reference is to the rulinj by the highest court in the land to the effect that there shall be no color line in our system of public education I should be able to present my thoughts about this rather concise ly and get back to the broader and perhaps even more important aspect of the topic which I intro duced as Assignment No 1 The Supreme Court opinion on school desegregation will I sus pect stand as one of the most im portant prbducM of that tribune in the history of our country It paves the way to spelling out one of the two issues decided by the war between the states In one of these it was deter mined that our union of states is indissoluble Secession is not states right In the other equality as between Negro and White was established The first was ever so much more palatable to the van quished than was the latter Progress in Rovorit For a good many years after the Civil War progress toward the goal of racial equality was pain fully slow Often it could be bet ter described as retrogression than us progress The one most important fact to be noted in a backward look at all that has happened since the Civil War the era of the carpet baggers the era of the Man and finally the era of approach to eco nomic equality for the Negro is that were dealing with a prob lem which has been a long time in the making Slavery as an institution came to our shores some two and a half centuries ago It became part and parcel of our Southern States econ omy Both the industry and the culture of owr Dixieland were buflt either on it or around it It follows then in logic as well from observing the lessons of experience that a problem which was the product of an extended period of history isnt going to be completely and perfectly solved overnight It was created by evo hition its solution cant be and shouldnt be by revolution RtttMtt Mvtiwi All of this by way of suggest ing that those of us in the North where the problem has never been than academic for most part should exercise a good bit of tolerance toward those on the ground whose lives are touched day bf the problem Were CONTIWUIO Off MCI 2 AP Wirepholo IN HOSPITALMarilyn Monroe Monday had minor surgery at Cedars of Lebanon Hospital in Hollywood The
