Magic City Free Press (Newspaper) - June 15, 1972, Moberly, Missouri Magic City Free Press Voi. 3, No. 18 Moberly, Missouri, Thursday, June 15, 1972 1'oslal Patron Moberly Public Schools Given AAA Rating Moberly public schools have again received a Triple A rating from the Slate Department of Education. This was an- nounced to the members of the Board of Education by Supt. of Schools William E Clark at a regular meeting held at the Junior High School Tuesday night. .Clark said the classification was the result of a visit by members of the State Department shortly before the school term ended. Suggestions were made by the Department that a second school nurse should be added, the superintendent said. Clark also said that if the Learning Disabilities program is established there would be a need for three teachers to fully staff it. This program is mainly for children with visual and hearing problems, he explained. Application has been made for funding. Charles Hartig, director of Civil Defense in Randolph County, appeared before the Board with the recommendation that a Block Mothers Safety Program be established in all schools to handle at- tempts at child molestation. He explained that the program had been developed under National Civil Defense. The Board expressed interest and asked that literature be obtained to describe it more fully. Supt. Clark announced that a public reception would be held alThe Crossroads Saturday night between p.m. for Mr. and Mrs. Henry T. Norris. Norris is the new president uf the Moberly Junior College. Clark reported that the work on the football field at the Senior High School was progressing, with the grading finished and curbs being formed around the quarter mile track on the outside.

Taken to Woodland Hospital, the operator of the motorcycle, Mrs. Joyce M Moore, 19, of Route 2, Moberly, was ad- mitled, with a broken arm; and her 15- year-old sister, Joyce Mettes, a passenger also of Route 2, Moberly, was treated for bruises and dismissed. Mrs. Moore was reported in satisfactory condition this morning by hospital authorities. Police said the sisters reported that the driver of an unidentified car crowded their motorcycle off the road as both vehicles were eastbound. The motorcycle was damaged. Four Salisbury Drivers in Crash Four cars driven by young Salisbury drivers were damaged in a chain-reaction accident on Route 129 near Salisbury in Chariton County at o'clock this morning, the Highway Patrol said. There were n-injuries, and the accident was reported by the patrol as follows: Stephen Hartman, 21, southbound, slowed to turn right, as cars behind his driven by Marion Fehling, 17, and Dwayne Wollston, 17, stopped.

Social Security Hike May Not Come Before Election 105 Attend Humanites Event WASHINGTON Al' Congressional efforts to fatten the Social Security checks iif millions of voters before election day may thwarted by a Senate deadlock (in welfare reform. Till' dilemma took shape as the Senate Finance Committee wrapped up its work mi ii massive bill containing the hotly disputed welfare as well as the Social Security increases most senators fiiviir. Many members of Congress are anxious fur the Social Security boosts to be in- cluded in the checks recipients would get Mov. four days before Hie presidential and congressional balloting. Hut Social Security Commissioner Hubert M. Ball says that can't happen unless the bill is signed into law Aug. 10 because of the time it lakes to change his computers. With Floor debate delayed until after a mid-July congressional recess for the Democratic National Convention, that gives the Senate less than a month to resolve a three-way split over the bill's welfare provisions. Bui little argument seems likely on the Social Security measure, which would raise monthly payments 10 per cent across the board, expand Medicare to cover maintenance drugs, and provide a million supplement for widows. Well over half the Senate is on record in favor of doubling the across-the-board increase to 20 per cent. If both programs are kept in the same package, it seems unlikely that the legislation could reach President Nixon by Aug. 10 because of lengthy debate and the time it would take to reconcile the measure with the version passed earlier by the House. For this reason, Finance Chairman Russell B. Long, D-La., said Tuesday there might be a move to split off the Social Security provisions, a difficult parliamentary maneuver. At issue is the welfare program for Aid to Families with Dependent Children, which covers about 11 million persons. Nixon has recommended an AFDC reform plan which was largely approved by the House. It features a guaranteed annual income for a family of four and payments for the first time to the working poor. The Finance Committee flatly rejected this plan and substituted one of its own called Workfarc with strict work The attendance at the "Crossroads" humanities program held at the Moberly Senior High School Monday night was estimated at 150, according to Mrs. Frances J. Marshall, of Moberly, who headed the committee selected from the eight counties of the Mark Twain Area which was in charge of the program. Exhibits were shown by six of the counties: Randolph, Macon, Momoe, Shelby, and Rails. One visitor came as far away as Honolulu, Pearl Beers who was a visitor of Mrs, Waller Christy, of Callao. Robert J. Clarke, assistant professor of Art and Art History, St. I.ouis University, presented a slide lecture program on the humanities. The lecturer used slides taken in the eight-county area to illustrate how the history of architecture and tran- sportation in the Northern Missouri area reflects the American Dream. "Crossroads" was chosen as the title of the lecture because Missouri can be seen as a crossroads for river and rail tran- sportation. The Mississippi and Missouri Rivers cross In Missouri, and Moberly became a crossroads for the railroad. Clark showed pictures of local ar- chitecture and demonstrated how local builders drew on architectural styles from the eastern United States and western Europe. Slides were presented from the eight-county area of institutional buildings and family dwellings and compared to slides of the architecture of earlier periods friim Virginia. Massachusetts, New Kngland and western Europe. Clarke made the point that local settlers adopted the past to a new .situation by using native materials, combined details and regional inventiveness to carry out the tradition of western architecture in the newly settled northern Missouri region. Clarke clised the program with the thought that 'he buildings of 1876 reflect a more optimistic view of the American Dream (of whal America is going to be) than the view presented in today's ar- chitecture. 450 Reservations for C of C Banquet Rescrvalions for the Moberly Area Chamber of Commerce's "Presidents Banquet to be held Tuesday night at the Moberly High School gymnasium now total 450, according to the latest tabulation announced by Weller, C of C manager.

As of now, it appears that each plan commands only the backing of 30 to 35 senators, well under the majority of 51 needed for passage. Four Hurt in Accident On 24 East Four persons were hurt in a traf- fic mishap on Highway 24 three miles east of Moberly at p.m. Sunday, the High- way Patrol said. Taken to Woodland Hospital by the RandolphCounty Ambulance Service were Mrs. Mildred Miller, Moberly, driver of one car, who was treated for neck and back injuries, and released, and Mrs. Dorothy Bagby, Huntsville, who was admitted with severe lacerations and facial bruises and abrasions.

The patrol said the Miller and Rudkin cars were westbound, following behind the westbound car of Jerry Twyman, Moberly. Eastbound was a car driven by Chris Williams, 16, of Moberly. The patrol said the Williams and Twyman cars ran off on the shoulders to the right, the Miller car slowed and was struck from the rear by the Rudkin car. Do You Know? A H-year-nld Moberly boy, who wants to organize his own orchestra as soon as he completes high school, has received en- couragement from two nationally known musicians whom he admires Welk and Liberace. He is Jimmy F. Jones, 14, of 709 Franklin, son of Frank Jones, a Norfolk and Western Railway Co. employe. The youth plays pi a no and organ and arranges music. He is assistant pianist at North Park Baptist Church and plays for wed- dings occasionally. Jimmy, who will be a freshman at Moberly High School next term, hopes to play in the Stage band. An accordion belonging lo Jimmy's father sparked the youth's interest in music when he was four years old. He learned to play the accordion "by ear." When he was seven he started taking piano lessons from Mrs. Merle I Margaret) Rice. Richard Wainman, his music teacher in school, has helped him with arranging. After obtaining permission from the composer of Jimmy arranged that piece in moderetto rhythm and had It copyrighted. Presently he Is working on arrangements in "champaign style" (foxtrot rhythm) for "Bubbles In the Wind" and "Champaign Time" preparatory to getting them copyngnteu. Jimmy explained that getting a piece of music copyrighted and later published is one of the ways he can "become better known" in the entertainment world. And this is definitely the world he wants to attract. "Eventually, I would like to conduct a television show like Mr. Jimmy said. "I like his champaign style of music." Tape recordings of his arrangement of "Calcutta" sent to Welk and Liberace brought the response, "I hope I'll have the pleasre of meeting you at some future from Welk and a comment by Uberace that Jimmy's work is excellent for a person his age. Jimmy was invited by Welk's son to audition at the Welk studio in June last year, but the youth was unable to make the trip at that time. However, this past May, Jimmy visited the Welk studio to see it Welk was on tour at the time. Jimmy believes thatifWelkhadbeenalthestudio he would have given him an audition. During an interview, Jimmy played his interpretation of "12th Street and "So Nice" for a Monitor-Index reporter.
