TALK before the teachers in a sizable Iowa school sys tem at the start of this school year I said that if I were not irrevocably committed to the newspaper profession and forced to pick another career Id like most to be a teacher But I hurried on to admit that I probably wouldnt be a very good one For one thing I explained Id be short on the patience which has always seemed to me to be one of the prime attributes for effective teaching Another thing I know I wouldnt be smart enough And why do I have this high ment workers regard for teaching it stems from my deep lyfelt and oftexpressed convic tion that education is the one most important business in our world today If our world is to be Im definitely opgo up timistic on this going to come about through educa tion There can be effective educa tion only if there are good teach ers Teaching isproductive in about the degree that the teach er can inspire in pupils a desire even a passion to learn About the most complimentary thing that can be said about a Ihope its true thatitsapartofthe total educational picture in our fair land Funloving escapees They made the rounds DUBUQUE prisoners were back in jail Mon day after a brief taste of freedom but they had happy mem ories to keep them company The two men slipped out of the centuryold Dubuque County jail early Sunday to make the rounds of nightclubs in East Dubuque III across the Missis sippi River from here The funloving escapees were Larry Barhart 23 Colesburg and Merlin Ashman 28 Lancaster Wis East Dubuque police spotted Barnhart about am Sun day but his companion got away Dubuque officials who had both men listed as safely in jail when a bed check was made shortly before midnight were notified and found the escapees eel empty However me cell didnt stay that way A short time later jailers heard the sound of breaking glass They discovered Ashman back in his bunk apparently sound asleep Authorities said the two men had jumped out a window after sawing through the bars

10day state visit hailed in both Moscow am Belgrade as sealing the re newed friendship between the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia N For about as long as I can re member Ive been contending that if newspapers will help light the path for them the people of America will find their way Given the truth our public is quite capable of making its own interpretations Thats at the core of our democracy To say unqualifiedly that edu cation is mankinds one most important business is I grant to indulge in a sweeping l ment But let me make it double clear that I am not indulging in pretty talk I am not exag gerating I mean what I literally This was my feeling before taking off on a 40000 mile odys sey into the far places of our world five years ago And I was fortified in my belief by what I saw heard and sensed in 31 countries This observation about the primacy of education sometimes brings this penetrating query But what about religion My answer to that one is that religion when not backed up with a reasonable background of education is inevitably going to be little more than supersti tion That alas is precisely what religion is in some places What about producing food to even half bellies in our backward nations Will education do that others may ask And my answer to this one is that its a coinci dence that hunger and starva tion go hand in hand with illit eracy Conversely nations with the highest standard of living Western Europe and the English speaking nations generally have education at its best Which came first the educa tion or the high standards leave that one to those who have successfully answered that old one about hen and the egg But theres something even more significant about educa tion in the long look down the corridor of time I come to that now
