Arkansas City Traveler (Newspaper) - September 26, 1970, Arkansas City, Kansas Editorially speaking regionalism cooperation can solve Many problems the Arkansas City ran daily traveler saturday september 26, 1970 Page 4 helping hand Carroll righter9 As might be expected a plan to Combine the Arkansas City ran., and Winfield ran., High schools Isnit getting much support in either town. There is a natural resistance to such combinations because existing High schools would lose their Home town identity. However there is Merit in such a plan perhaps enough to outweigh the real and imagined disadvantages. A combined High school located at Strother Field half Way Between the two communities would involve some busing of students but would provide economies in the elimination of duplication. More important would be the special programs that undoubtedly would be made possible by a larger combined school. Possibilities include remedial education to reach students of All ability Levels education for the handicapped programs for exceptional children adult education improved libraries better counselling and perhaps the addition of cultural and artistic studies on a larger scale. Winfield and Arkansas City Are blessed by their nearness to each other though that advantage is not recognized by some of the residents. The two cities have cooperated by Virginia Payette investing in joint Industrial development at Strother Field and there is no Good reason to avoid other feasible joint ventures. Other Kansas communities have combined certain facilities to their Mutual advantage. Parsons Independence and Coffeyville in Southeast Kansas have been Able to provide services at the jointly operated Tri City Airport that would not be possible had they dissipated their funds on three individual airports. In the same area however Coffeyville and Independence continue to support with state Aid two Junior colleges in the same county. They could save Money and provide More adequate facilities by combining the two colleges at some Point Between the cities. Such a proposal has been suggested by the school officials in Montgomery county but the school boards rejected it. It can Only be hoped that Winfield and Arkansas City will carefully consider a combined High school and will not reject the plan out of hand. Regionalism and inter governmental cooperation too often Are mistrusted but used wisely can solve Many of our problems Wichita Eagle turn that Blank Blank Down a turn Down that amp tape recorder you la be deaf As a Post one of these Days a sound familiar How Many times have you stormed into juniors pad and screamed this warning allowing of course for a slight variation in adjectives depending on How much the Racket was interfering with your Ball game on to a a screamed is the clue word Here.

Junior might lose his hearing if he curls up hour after hour with the latest acid Rock tuned to an ear splitting Din. In fact chances Are he already has. Part of it anyway. Lots of other Young people have. And the damage is permanent. Rock and Roll music a mostly to blame according to David n. Lipscomb ph.d., associate professor of audiology at the University of Tennessee. He Speaks from painful experience after prolonged test sessions at discotheques and Rock concerts.

Lipscomb a super sensitive equipment quivered to a recording of 130 decibels. That a Only for decibels below the Roar of a Jet engine or an air raid Siren which Send the Needle up to 140. And that in Case you re not up on these things is right at the pain threshold. Most Rock averages out at 120 which is Only to below the Decibel pressure of a riveting gun. And its equal to the noise of a Thunder clap. Or a Turbine Generator. Its not quite As loud As gunfire which goes up to 161 a but it lasts longer. And the resulting damage to the ear has nothing to do with the Public forum what a wrong to the traveler what is wrong with the people in Arkansas City they Are so concerned with their own problems of taxes Hospital Etc. That they done to Stop to think and praise1 our own school kids. When i read in the paper and hear on television and radio about All the trouble the kids Are having in Wichita and other places it makes me proud of the kids of Arkansas City. I see school kids every Day when i take my two kids in senior High and two kids in Junior High to school and go after them. We hear of pills and dope being sold and passed in school. I believe that could be taken care of. Of we would Praise and Tell our kids we Are proud of them that would be a big Start. Stop and think what we As parents would feel and do if there would be fighting every Day in our schools Here at Arkansas City. Would it take too much of our time to let them know what we think of them speaking for myself i am proud of each and every one of the kids of Arkansas City. A mrs. Charles Wagner 515 s.

Beethoven would be just As dangerous. If you played him As often and As loud. Or. Lipscomb says Survey results a blend Strong support to the inference that Young people Are sustaining High frequency hearing loss much of which might be directly attributable to the High intensity sounds in their Home and recreational a study of 3,000 students showed More deafness among High school seniors than among sixth-graders�?10.6 per cent to 3.8 per cent. And boys had four times As much loss As girls. A this is probably because boys Are exposed to More High intensity sound stimulation a or. Lipscomb explains. A Cap pistols firecrackers gunfire motorcycles drag races in another Survey of 1,680 College freshmen the loss of hearing was even More widespread-30.2 per cent. At this age the Young men had twice the impairment of the girls. Apparently loud Rock combos Are addictive which matches the drug culture they seem to flourish in. The higher the sound level or. Lipscomb says the greater the desire for More and louder music. That tends to disguise what he Calls a mediocre musicianship a which might explain Why kids done to seem to mind those weird sounds some combos put Forth. High level music not Only damages eardrums it also acts As an aesthetic according to or. Lipscomb. So if Junior gets a goofy look when the mothers of invention go into High gear done to blame it on dope. It might just be the decibels.

One astonished lobbyist said it was bad enough to be approached so blatantly for funds particularly by a Man not even in Congress but a the did no to even offer the ticket to the fiesta until the Day after it was Moffatt told this column woefully that the entire solicitation was a Flop.
