Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - May 17, 1966, Bennington, Vermont Ion Bennington Banner tuesday a 17. It Leisure time becomes serious problem As american work week becomes Shorter classifieds legals crossword television radio by Harry of Rouson up National reporter Washington up a four Hundred years before Christ in the City of Syracuse somebody asked Dionysius the elder whether he would enjoy having lots of Leisure time. He replied a god forbid that it should Ever befall Dionysius was a go getter a no play All work fellow whose single minded Devotion to the 16-hour Day made him top Man in town dictator of Syracuse. Millions of americans who probably never heard of him would agree with Dionysius about Leisure time. They include High school dropouts who have nothing to do but stand on Street Corners thereby forming a recruiting Pool for juvenile gangs. They include retired millionaires who fish from their yachts in the Gulf Stream and try to convince themselves they Are having fun while in reality they would give anything to be Back in the office. They include elderly Blue Collar and White Collar workers who enjoy not hearing the morning alarm clock for about a month and then get bored. The grim fact is that millions of americans done to know How to enjoy Leisure time. It has become a major worry to the Federal government to mental health experts and to labor leaders. In the elderly too much Leisure can Lead to decline of morale and psychosomatic illnesses. In youth it can Lead to Petty crime and the Reform school. More in Prospect and the Prospect is More Leisure time for More americans. The fight against the sweat shops and the exploiters of child labor has been won and it was a momentous Victory for the common Man. In 1900 the work week was 60 hours then it was reduced to 48 hours and in the 1930s to 40 hours. Now it is moving relentlessly toward 35 hours with the Al Cio pressing for a Federal Law that would make it mandatory. For a sizable Section of the american Economy the 35-hour week already is Here and in new York an electrical workers Union actually has a 25-hour week. In the printing trades 98 per cent of the workers Are on less than a 40-hour week 97 per cent of the ladies garment workers 65 per cent of the brewery workers and 12 per cent of the retail workers. The Al Cio is not driving ahead blindly for More Leisure time. It is Well aware that More Leisure Breeds More problems and such men As Leo perils director of its Community service activities Are searching hard for the answers and not on a 35-hour week either. Done to Man it believe it or not the chief problem seems to be that most people done to want More Leisure. Or. George Gallop of the american Institute of Public opinion got interested in the problem three years ago and took a Cross Section of american opinion. The question he asked was whether the work week should be reduced from 40 to 35 hours a week. The answers yes 29 per cent. No 64 per cent. No opinion 7 per cent. Then Gallup took a poll confined to Union members and their wives asking the same question. Result yes 42 per cent. No 52 per cent. No opinion 6 per cent. Sociologists astounded by gallops findings started looking for explanations. Basically they arrived at one conclusion americans have a guilt feeling of they Are Idle too much. One expert quoted Tolstoy so War new nationalism through nations is sweeping of East Europe by Phil. Newsom Ufi for Ign or is i analyst All night Long the train had huffed its Way northwestward from Bucharest past the blazing lights of the Plesti Oil Fields and on through the Carpathian mountains to an Early morning Stop at Cluj the old University town. Through a chill drizzle in full Daylight now it moved through the vast emptiness of the collectives. Once it made an unscheduled Stop at a tiny farm Village whose mud walled cottages a single room with Kitchen and a hand drawn Well outside Only emphasized the Gray loneliness. Moving slowly through the mire of the Roadway a husky peasant woman in Blue jumper Gray sweater and Gray Stock Ings made her Way toward the Fields. The hungarian sharing the train compartment gazed angrily from the window. A this is Transylvania a he said. A this is land that rightfully belongs to Hungary. This is Why we can never like the unimportant event by itself this was an unimportant event. But the Long train ride had in it the elements that tear at Eastern Europe today. The Plesti Oil Fields wasted by the occupation forces of both the germans and the russians. The peasant his life virtually unchanged who has contributed the most but gained the least from a new life. And the in 1865 Lym students brought Dory to state a a j Burlington a one Hundred years ago when civil War guns were still the University of Vermont could Muster Only three academic seniors for gradual ton and the total of sex members of the class was Down to six one of whom brought glory to the state. The University s total academic enrolment was less than 30, fewer than were in the graduating class of 36 in the College of Medicine that year. Not since the hard times of the 1830s had the academic senior class been so Small. Franklin and Henry h. Belknap of East Barnard and Francis Farrell of Shelburne received their diplomas and entered careers of teaching preaching and Law practice respectively the Belknap in Illinois and Farrell in Iowa. But among the a drop outs of 1866 were three soldiers of the 13th Vermont volunteers Stephen f. Brown of Swanton immortalized on the Field of Gettysburg Ward g. Piper a Fifer from Weathersfield and Erastus Powell of Cambridge who died of disease in 1863 at Occoquan a. It is the figure of Brown the a a insubordinate lieutenant which stands in Bronze As the 13th Vermont s Monument on the Gettysburg Battlefield. He carries a Confederate Sabre and has a common Hatchet at his feet. Brown was called a a reserved and not always easy to get along with but he was idolized by his subordinates and for their Comfort he never spared himself. It was on a hot Day in late june 1863, when these vermonters ordered to pack up and leave Virginia for Home they hoped found themselves instead overloaded with souvenirs thirsty to Boot and probably on their Way to Battle. Near Frederick md., was a Beautiful Well full of Cool water but the orders were strict no one was to break ranks. Guards stood at All the Springs. Nevertheless it. Brown collected All the empty canteens he could find faced Down the guard filled the canteens and brought them Back and got arrested for his trouble. His sword was taken from him and there was talk of a court martial but no time to hold it and Brown kept on marching to Battle. Then when the fighting began Brown with no weapon of his own snatched up a common Camp Hatchet and charged into Battle. During Pickett s charge he brandished it in one hand and seized a Confederate officer by the Collar with the other demanding his surrender and getting it. The Confederate officer s Sabre was his prize. The regimental history of the 13th Vermont makes it Clear that Brown was honoured in Bronze not because of his insubordination but a because of great humanity and conspicuous promoted later to Captain Brown lost an in Battle and reluctantly left the service of the Union. He studied at the University of new York in Albany practice Law in Chicago then returned to make his Home in Swanton where he died in 1903. Piper the Fifer although born in Weathersfield had his Home in Bakersfield when he entered the University and had fitted in Jericho for College. He was a machinist by Trade. Piper provided a civil War joke for the regimental history he recalled How their colonel Francis Randall Rode off to see what was alarming the 14th Vermont regiment and causing them to sound the Long Roll. He came Back saying a it was caused by a Blank fool belonging to the 14th who was born just outside the state of resentments Between neighbouring Peoples. And in the whole of it seems to lie the reason for soviet party Bossy a Leonid Brezhnev a recent trip to Bucharest among the most publicized of All secret trips. Geography made Romania and Hungary neighbors. The fates of world War ii brought them into the communist bloc and planted the seeds of new quarrels. For centuries the romanians had been subject to or Allied with either Hungary or Turkey. A mini i and a half hungarians still live in Northern Transylvania which by the romanian peace treaty signed in Paris in 1947 went to Romania. But in Cluj the language of culture and influence continues to be hungarian. Cede Bessarabia by the same treaty Romania ceded Bessarabia and Northern Bukovina to the soviet Union and Southern Dob Rudja to Bulgaria. And As hungarians feed upon their resentment toward Romania the romanians in their turn gaze hungrily upon their lost lands to the North and South. For to years partially due to stall leation program nationalism has been and peace a an inner voice tells us we Are wrong of we Are Gallup himself came up with a plausible answer hold to ethic a i believe that the Puritan ethic that holds there is great virtue in work per be still has a great hold on the american Public. They still Are inclined to believe that a the Devil has work for Idle i think that this View is reinforced by their belief that one of the chief causes of juvenile delinquency is too Little work both in Home and school for teen agers. Finally i believe there is a deep seated conviction on the part of most people that they Are not themselves spending their Leisure time wisely and this feeling often takes on something of the character of a guilt in the history of literature one of the most prominent protagonists of full time Leisure is the persian poet Omar Khayyam. He outlined a retirement plan in a poem to his current sweetie pie a a Book of verses underneath the Bough a Jug of wine a loaf of bread and thou beside me singing in the but it appears that wine women and song Isnit the answer either.
