Monday through Friday, by 1 p.m. Friday, November 22, 1963 USEFUL AGAIN' Not long ago there was a news picture of a man in his late 80s, long retired, who has taken to delivering papers. He offered this interesting comment when asked his reasons for thus in- terrupting his leisure: "I'm useful again." It is axiomatic that as the pro- portionate number of aged men and women in our population in- creases, more and more effort will have to be made to provide the aged with useful, produc- tive things to do. For as the case cited above illustrates, few of the aged relish constant idleness. Most of them would like to continue making some contribu- tion to society; they are miser- able when they feel rejected and useless. This is particularly brought to mind by a Labor Department study of a trend toward a short- er span of active working life. It has been found that, for the first time in this century, the up- ward trend in the length of the working life has been rever- sed. A child born now can ex- pect to spend somewhat less time in the work force than a child born as recently as 1950. The work span is closing in at both ends. Earlier retirement cuts it off sooner than in the past, and longer schooling delays its start It is retirement that makes the problem for those who, dropped from their jobs. face years or even decades of idleness. Many such persons not only work to "keep their hand but need it badly for econ- omic reasons. The problem, bound to be heightened by increasing auto- mation, has not yet been faced in any general way. A lot of thought will have to be given to training retired men and wo- men for new tasks, and the pre- sent reluctance to employ the aged will have to be overcome. The alternative is economic, political and psychological trouble that could be for the most part avoided by sensible action. (Guest Editorial) MARK EDUCATION WEEK; MICHIGAN RANKS HIGH By the Presidential proclama- tion, the period Nov. 10-16 is observed as American Education Week. The commemoration is the outgrowth of joint action in 1921 of the National Education As- sociation and the American Le- gion toward correcting the shockingly high rate of illiter- acy among American youth con- scripted for military service during World War I. In 1922, the United States Of- fice of Education became a co- sponsor, and the National Con- gress of Parents and Teachers became the fourth national spon- sor in 1938. The national theme of the movement is "Education Streng- thens the Nation." Citizens of Michigan may be proud of their state's position in the educational field. Cur- rently, youths are being provided education through the 12th grade. Along with increase in school enrollment, there has been an increase in the number and quality of teachers. Michigan's teaching staff is now estimated at with 92 per cent hav- ing degrees. The eight percent non-degree teachers is half that of four years ago. Michigan now ranks: Among top 20 states in amount of direct expenditures for edu- cation, as a percentage of per- sonal income, well ahead of the national average and neighbor- ing states of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. Above national average and the same three states in percent- age the state contributes to the total revenue for public ele- mentary and secondary schools. Eleventh in the Nation based on per capita expenditure for education. Eighth in the Nation in the amount spent for education as a percentage of total state ex- penditures. Giving local significance to the week is a program of school open houses, PTA meetings and parent-teacher conferences ini- tiated by Pontiac and Waterford Township school systems and af- filiated organizations Pontiac Press (Guest Editorial) HUNTING FOR PROBLEMS Basic research has assumed tremendous importance in the United States even though a few years back an Eisenhower cabinet member ridiculed it as being concerned with little more than why potatoes turn brown when they're fried In its purest form, scientists conducting basic research often find out things they don't know how to use. It took Dr. C. G. Suits, director of General Electric Laborator- ies, to make clear what his staff is up to, according to Insider's PONYTAIL how much was YOUR phone bill, Deor Abby DEAR ABBY: I have a 15- year-old son who sneaks out to smoke. He has admitted it. But he says he doesn't smoke ciga- rettes; he smokes a pipe be- cause it isn't the togacco that causes lung cancer, it's the pa- per. He said his biology teach- er proved to the class that this was true by burning the tobac- co through a filter and then burning the paper through a fil- ter. The tobacco filter came out clear, while the paper stained the filter. Is this true? Thank you. SMOKER'S MOM DEAR MOM: No! I think your son's biology teacher has been watching too many commer- cials. Or your son is having "pipe" dreams. DEAR ABBY: Has a marriage ever worked out when the man was once married to his second wife's sister? That's my prob- lem now. My sister and "L" were married for five years. She was 22 and "L" was 23. They had two darling children. "L" caught my sister running around on him and after giving her several chances, he got fed up and divorced her. His mo- ther is raising the children. "L" and I have been seeing each other for three months, and Abby, we are terribly in love and want to get married. When I told my parents, they hit the ceiling and said it would never work. My sister keeps running him down. Abby, he is a fine man and I love him. I am 21 and he is 29. Can this marriage work? IN LOVE DEAR IN LOVE: Certainly. But prepare to choose between "L" and your family. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I were in a downtown office building yesterday. We got in- to a very crowded elevator. I couldn't get my arm up to reach my hat, so I just left it on. When it came time to get off I was near the elevator door, so I just stepped out ahead of the others, not noticing if I got out ahead of any ladies or not. My wife chewed me out all the way on both counts, saying it was time I learned some manners. Well, Abby? If you're going to stick up for the women again, please toss this in the waste basket, STAN DEAR STAN: Your letter is going into the into the waste basket' You were right on both counts! Common sense always precedes rule- of-lhumb etiquette. CONFIDENTIAL TO "BIG- HEARTED Quit worrying. Worry is the interest you pay on a loan you'll probably never have to make.

To The Editor: Junior Welfare League has been serving the Holland area for over thirty years. Wherever or whenever we see a need to aid the community and its chil- dren we try to act constructive- ly- Need is a relative dimension. For some it is purely economic; for others it is spiritual, physi- cal, or emotional. To us it means a pair of glasses, thir- teen baby baths one morning at a migrant center, delighted faces at our puppet shows, or of furnishings in the children's area of the library. At the present time there is an educational need in our com- munity going unfulfilled. This is something too enormous for us to handle. But it is something each parent of each child can do for them and all the other children in the community. A child grows into tomorrow with the tools he is given today. A good physical fitness program is needed on the elementary le- vel now along with art, music, and languages. At the present time all the high school stu- dents are served by one counselor whose purpose is to help them make that major step into the adult world where to go and what to do. These are just a few of the more obvious areas of need in the Holland school system. Won't you support the millage proposal in the Tuesday elec- tion9 The challenges of tomor- row for these children are far greater than we can imagine to- day. Let us give them a helping hand.

Milwaukee Journal A MATTER OF HABIT Most clergymen are under- standably inclined to approve of the church-going habit. They often recommend regular at- tendance at services of wor- ship They tend again, under- standably to think of those they see without fail on Sunday morning as their congregations' best exemplars of belief and faith. Often this judgment is accur- ate. All things considered, the church member who shows up regularly at worship services is more likely than others to be one to whom religious belief is a central part'of life. One could make a rather good case, all the same, against regu- larity of church-going merely for the sake of regularity. The problem is that when a thing becomes habitual there is always danger that less and less conscious volition and thought will be involved. The point here made is not complicated. It is simply that worship should, of all activities, be the least perfunctory. Ideally, worship is a means of reaching cut for contact with Deity. To tht extent that the worshiper THE CHURCH INVITES YOU The main task of the church is a prophetic one the task of bringing about new hearts in men and a new order in society- new hearts in which good will, generosity, sincerity and cour- age will predominate and a new order in which peace, justice, freedom and righteousness shall be established. It is the task of spiritualizing every department of human life our business, by making service rather than pro- fit the prime objective; our poli- tics, by infusing into men a sense of loyalty to the spirit as well as to the machinery of democracy; our penal institu- tions, by substituting reforma- tion for retribution: our church- es, by making religious toler- ance a primary ecclesiastical virtue: our foreign relations, by making arbitration and concilia- tion the only legitimate means of settling international dis- putes. This is the task of a truly prophetic church in the making of a better world. Why not accept the invitation and Go to Church Next Sunday? OUR PREACHER SAYS When there is something be- tween the sun and a spot of ground, the ground r e m a in s dead and futile even though the sun is shining. The values of God's purpose for you cannot be realized in your life unless you remove anything that stands between yourself and God. You must open your heart to His purpose and His love. Those who do this are the ones who re- ceive God's help.

We are also aware that one does not suddenly create a teen age artist, singer, violinist, or football tackle from boys and girls who have been living in cultural and athletic vacuums for six to eight years any more than one creates space scien- tists from children who have no training in arithmetic. We want our community well rounded and we want our children to have an equal opportunity to compete in the adult world. We are prepared to pay the price, no matter what that price may be. We are going to vote for additional school millage. But, if pur votes fail to bring the additional millage to pro- vide the quality education which is essential, we are going to have to obtain the money in some other way. A number of communities have solved their problems by eliminating the kindergartens from their public school systems. It could happen here1 If it did happen here, it would cost parents at least a year to send their children to any private kindergarten which might be established. This is no thin air figure! This is a bare minimum figure derived from my own personal administra- tive experience with Holland's only nursery school, and I might add that this figure neither includes administrative costs nor does it allow adequately for the acquisition of classroom space and equipment. I appeal to all parents of pre- school children to take this idea very seriously because it is not an impossible result of failure to support the millage. Protect yourselves from the possibility of a cost far greater than three mills and join the fight to pre- vent our children from becoming the "have nots of the ed- ucational world. Doreen R.

Hart has asked for an immediate hearing on the pro- posal for a Pictured Rocks Na- tional Lakeshore by the Senate subcommittee on Public Lands. Interior department's economic study on proposal is now ready Two Michigan Republicans (Chamberlain and Ford) were among the 12 GOP House Task Force on NATO Unity to lunch Nov. 15 with former President Eisenhower in Pettsburg.

Congressman Elford Ceder- berg of Bay City has appealed to federal agencies to make greater use of fish in their eat- ing establishments. It is hoped his plea will assist Great Lakes commercial fishermen hard hit by recent discovery of botulism in certain shipments of smoked fish.

In Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota and Mis- souri it was found that "Re- publican organizational weak- ness in the big cities was re- sponsible." Congressman August E. Jo- hansen, Battle Creek Republi- can, commenting on the increas- ing public criticism of the Con- gress said: "It is not my Con- gress not your Congress but the constitution's Con- gress."

I had given my boy friend lots of hints starting two months ago. We've done plenty of win- dow shopping together so he knows what my taste is in jewelry, fur jackets and lug- gage. He has a good job and is not short of money. The morning of my birthday I received a telegram saying: "Sorry your birthday gift has not arrived. It has been ordered and is on the way. Please be patient. Love. Hubert." We had dinner together that evening and I thanked him for the message. He assured me I would love the present. Well, this morning he phoned all excited. The "gift" had arrived and he would bring it right over. I almost went through the floor when he showed up at the front door with two baby hamsters in a cage. I have no interest in ham- sters. To me they look like alley rate. What shall I do? ROBBED Dear Robbed: Give the last of the Big Spenders his two hamsters back before you have eight. Dear Ann Landers: I'm sure I am not the only mother in this world who tries to hide her hurt feelings and pretends to all the world that her son or daughter is loving and consider- ate when such is not the j case. I Is it too much to expect a i prosperous married son to pick up the telephone and call hisi mother every two weeks? Thei night rate is 45 cents for a sta- tion call. Am I selfish to want some small remembrance on Mother's Day and perhaps a telegram on my birthday? The last time I spoke with my son I called him. I told him it would be nice if he could alter- the calls. I would call him once a week and he could call me the next week. He said, "Fine." That was seven weeks ago. I haven't heard from him since. Why are children so in- considerate9 Shall I call him or what? Please advise VERY SAD Dear Very Sad: Children who discard their parents like paper plates after a family picnic don't get that way by accident. There is always a reason for selfishness and indifference. My advice is to leave the boy alone. He may remember to pick up the phone and call his mother when his own son gives him the deep-freeze treatment This practice: (1) Creates a problem of overcrowding in the reception room. (2) Exposes healthy children to possible disease. (3) Diverts the attention of the nurse and receptionist. (4) Encourages the physician to get the family out as quickly as possible, thereby reducing his effectiveness. Thanks for any help you can give us beleaguered pediatri- cians by passing the word. W.

Dr. A. Martin Lerner, associ- ate professor of Medicine at Wayne State University, said the diseases were found after a study of 146 cases involving mostly infants. Each of the illnesses were causes by viruses and organisms associated with them, Lerner said. According to Lerner the dis- eases have been found where doctors are "adequately pre- pared and equipped to search for the new eruptions." He said all were usually dis- covered by a rash and "average temperatures of 101 and 103 de- grees" accompanied it. The new diseases were listed as exanthem Boston ex- anthem; vesicular stomatitus or hand, foot and mouth disease; coxsackie A-9 exanthem and coxackie B-5 exanthem.
