Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WfTH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT 82ND YEAR, NO. 177 ABILENE, TEXAS, MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 10, 1862-StXTEEN PAGES IN ONE SECTION Associated Prest tJP> PAGE ONE This Santa was presiding from his sleigh parked outside an Abilene bakery and the town's small fry was filing by to voice to him, and into a pub- lic address system, wishes for Christmas. It was a proud moment for parents as they stood by in clusters to listen to the sweet sounds of their youngsters' broadcast voices. It was a particularly proud moment for this young Abilene father, an athlete of renown for his physical prowess. His son was at last old enough to solo, to climb the sleigh steps all by himself and go unescorted to talk things over with St. Nick. "MY with studied non- chalance the athlete-father in- formed other waiting parents as his son's turn came at the mike. "What do you want, little Santa asked. "A foot- ball? Boxing the tiny boy's voice boomed across town, "I want a dolly a little one that. Most repulsive sound of mu- sic heard this season: "Silent Night Cha-Cha-Cha." Whatever happened to geog- raphy? While you may not have been looking the last few years it has changed somewhat from the old "name the New Eng- land and the Middle Atlantic and the South Central states." Milton Hix, who supervises elementary work in the local schools, explains simply what has happened; "Geography has come a lot closer to us." The recent wars, the expan- sion of communications, the movement of people in recent years have all combined to give "geography" new meaning and to prompt schools to add such meanings to their course of study. "Many of our boys and girls have already seen more geog- raphy than I ever Hix says. "They've lived in Europe, in Japan, in England, in North Africa and if they haven't their fathers likely know some- thing of those places first hand. Kids will study geography, Hix points out. But to the old rote subject there have been added history, economics, soci- ology the once dry subject has been made more meaning- ful. lese Ultimatum Assailed by Indians WORLD'S RECOBD? Hardin-Simmons University's Henry Barentine claims the world's record for the greatest number of spins in a coin-operated clothes dryer. With several witnesses, the H-SU freshman orbited 302 times Sunday in a dryer at the new men's dormitory after hearing about a Nashville, Tenn., rec- ord of 73 times. The 19-year-old student said he was "a little dizzy" and "tired" following the ride, but had a big grin on his face as he posed for a Reporter-News photographer.

The family had been called to Brownwood because of serious injuries received by the child's grandfather in an explosion and fire. The child, son of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Mosley, was asleep on the back seat of the car and was left in the automobile while his parents ate breakfast. Mrs. Mosley check- ed on him during the meal and found him unconscious. Firemen from across the street attempted mouth to mouth re- suscitation and an ambulance attendant administered oxygen but the child was dead on arrival at Medical Arts Hospital.

Something of how "big" it can be was seen the other day on a visit to Sam Thomas' sixth grade at Fair Park. The sixth graders showed off their work on the "geography" of Europe and, under the "unit" program of teaching, it was a demonstration, too, of art, of public speaking, of composition, language. The students presented re- ports on the physical character- istics of the Old World coun- tries but they didn't stop at that point where geography once stopped. They delved into his- tory, religion, living conditions, government, economics, sociolo- gy and the whys and where- fores of the foreign lands. They made speeches. They presented scenic representa- tions set on "stages" contrived from large pasteboard boxes. They gave puppet shows and offered scrapbooks and dis- plays.

BRADSHER NEW DELHI, iJidia (API-In- dia accused Communist China on Sunday of making an unveiled threat that India must accept Pe- king-dictated terms or face a re- newal of their undeclared war. A spokesman for the Indian Foreign Ministry assailed a Pe- ting statement issued Saturday as an ultimatum to India and to six nonaligned nations which will meet in Colombo, Ceylon, on Mon- day in an effort to bring about solution of the India-Red China border dispute. There was no official response rom Prime Minister Nehru's gov- ernment to a follow-up Chinese note Sunday which demanded that ndia give a "clear and definite" answer to Chinese proposals for jeace along their battle-torn Him- layan border. file Peking note gave no dead- ine but suggested Bed China would not wait long for India to make a clear-cut decision to whether to accept or reject the Chinese package plan for peace- ul negotiations. India has made plain its objec- ons to Peking's proposals for mutual troop withdrawals, but the ndian government has not yet re- lied formally whether it accepts r rejects the Chinese plan. It is felt in New Delhi that for- mal rejection would spark renew- al of the fighting. But it is also elieved1 that Nehru's government the light of aroused public nd private assertions by Indian :ficials bolster this impression. The Peking note was handed to le Indian Embassy in New Delhi nd broadcast by Peking radio, n it, Peking asked "does the In- ian government agree or does it ot agree" to Red China's three lain proposals: 1. a ceaie-fire; 2. mutual with- rawal of forces 12.5 miles behind iat Peking calls the actual.con- ol line of Nov. 7, 1959: and 3. eetings of Chinese and Indian ficials for forming a demili- zone, establishing check- )sts and returning captured per- nnel. The impression here is that ehru might accept the cease-fire it were not attached to the cop withdrawals. India has been citly observing the cease-fire nee the Red Chinese effected it ov. 21. The Chinese demanded to know Sunday's note whether an In- an official in Colombo last Tues- y was stating government poli- in saying Indian troops would ake back to the McMahon Line, dia considers the line its fron- r. Red China rejects it, in- ts Indian troops stay 12.5 miles 'ay from it. The Indian government has said ,y that the official, Mrs. Lak- imi Menon, Nehru's deputy for- gn minister, was answering "hy- :hetical questions." But a high icial in the Foreign Ministry d a return to the border is the icy, even if India is hesitating say it. The Peking statement Saturday See INDIA, Pg.
