Carroll Daily Times Herald (Newspaper) - August 10, 1955, Carroll, Iowa One please Hia butt. W editorial fitness for Public office is what counts not age on and on goes the game of trying to infuse with political meaning every word president Eisenhower utters about the future most of the guessing gets a bit foolish but now and then one of his comments is so pointed that it simply demands Public response. Such an occasion came the other Day when he told some Ohio republicans that no american president Ever had. Reached the age of 70 while in the White House. He seemed to imply that he would not be the first and hence that he would not run again in 1956. At the outset it must certainly be noted that he May not have intended to imply this at All but simply wished to suggest that the combination of advancing age and heavy presidential burdens make the decision a very hard one. Since duty weighs so mightily on or. Eisenhower and since in the nature of things he cannot in 1955 see clearly what his duty May be in 1956, it is unlikely that he has made that difficult decision yet. Quite possibly his remarks about age and the presidency reveal what is running through his mind As he turns Over and Over the question whether or not to run. If the age Factor is High in his consciousness this is understand Able. Most men moving into the Middle 60 s like to give some thought to the Prospect of Lessen ing burdens and greater Leisure in the years ahead of them. The president s longing for the peace of his Pennsylvania farm is Well known to All of us. But Many citizens people to whom or. Eisenhower Felt in 1952 he owed a duty and to whom he might conceivably owe a further duty will be eager to argue that no artificial age Barrier ought to be erected against a president s service. The state of a Man s health is the real test. But if that is Good there is nothing about being 70 that renders a Man unfit for work even great official burdens. Churchill was in his 81st year when he finally agreed reluctantly to retire. Chancellor Adenauer of Germany is 79. The late Alcide de Gasperi Able postwar Premier of Italy was still in office in his upper 70 s. We already have a Legal two term limit on presidential service. Were we to add to that an unofficial age limit of 70, that would be too much. In or. Eisenhower s Case the question is nearly academic since he would not be 70 until a few months before a second term would expire in 1961. But in his or any other Case the matter of candidacy ought to be decided on a basis of fitness not age. By Telegram by Douglas Larsen and Kenneth o.

J finds gifted children Are being slighted Iowa City a while american schools have made great strides in aiding the slow learner within the past few years the youngster at the other extreme the gifted child has not benefited As much. These gifted children probably Only two or three in a Hundred Are destined to be our future leaders and should have the Benefit of an educational system which will offer them More opportunities for learning than the average child gets. So says a state University of Iowa research team whose members recently completed a Survey of the education of the gifted child in America since 1920." Burton Faldet Decorah graduate student at Sui reports his findings in his thesis for the master s degree in education which he will receive wednesday. Faldet s thesis study which was directed by James b. Stroud professor of education and psychology included a Survey of Iowa schools in cities with More than 4,000 population. His findings revealed that More is in Iowa for the gifted child than most people realize but children of supernormal abilities Are often held Back because schools just Aren t equipped to handle them. For instance 56 per cent of the schools surveyed do not have any teacher who is responsible for working with gifted children and 37 per cent said they do not hold teachers meetings to discuss the problems of their extra Bright students. One of the revealing facts turned up by the Survey was that virtually no school in the state is allowing its highly talented students to skip a Grade Stroud said. Twenty five years ago five or six per cent skipped a half Grade or More during their schooling. Faldet found however that Iowa school men seemed to be extremely interested and concerned with the problem of How Best to educate their top students and several schools in the state Are trying to work out programs for it. The most common practice now in use in Iowa schools was found to be enrichment which gives the gifted child More courses to take and More work to do than the other children in his class what is a gifted child Stroud says a gifted child might be defined As one who has an i. A of 125 or 130 and up 100 is considered Normal. Such children usually finish their assignments ahead of the others in their class and often get into mischief or simply waste their time for Lack of anything better to do. Two or three out of every Hundred children of school age Are sufficiently gifted that they should get special treatment Stroud says although the quite highly _ gifted child is found Only about once or twice in a thousand. For the larger schools which have a Large enough budget or. Stroud recommends advanced classes in which gifted children will Advance far ahead of the average children their age but will i stay with other outstanding children in their age group. Faldet and Stroud acknowledge that the smaller schools ordinarily Don t have enough gifted pupils or Money to operate these special programs. The Best solution for them they believe is to accelerate their gifted students by having them skip a Grade. In Stroud s opinion the next few years May see a great increase in Grade skipping. The practice of having extra Bright students skip a Grade or so fell out of favor some years ago because too Many children who were several years ahead of their classmates mentally could not adjust emotionally to the new situation. However educational researchers now feel that skipping a Grade is a Good thing for Many of these Young wizards providing they prove themselves emotionally and psychologically advanced for their years As Well or. Stroud says. The problem of How to Best educate these gifted children who Are so advanced for their Ages was recognized As Early As 1867 when a st. Louis mo., schoolmaster began advancing his Best students two grades at a time. Considerable research has been done on the subject since that time but the Iowa educators read ily acknowledge that the work they and others have done has Only scratched the surface of the problem. Next year Faldet will be school psychologist at the University of Chicago Laboratory school where he Hopes in continue his research on the education of gifted children. Americans owe $12.5.

Man stands at Crossroads of his future by James Marlow associated press news analyst Washington Job if you lived on a Star and had been watching m an on Earth through the Ages you could not help but Cross your fingers As you looked Down upon the world s atomic scientists meeting this week in Geneva. You might wish them Well. But you d have to wonder will they make it this time there were the empires that withered the egyptian  the greek the roman the French the German the British. With them were their wars always fresh testimonials to Man s inability to get along with Man. Now at last Man in the knowledge of the atom that he holds in his hand has the Power to destroy himself and every other living thing on the face of the Earth if he cannot finally learn to live peacefully. It is almost As if the whole history of Man s combined Wisdom and Folly has been heading inevitably for the mid-20th Century when because he has Learned too much he is faced with the last Choice Between living and dying altogether. Delegations from 72 countries including leading atomic scientists for dry the United states Russia Britain France Canada opened their atoms for peace conference in Geneva this week. The meeting had its origin in president Eisenhower s invitation delivered before the United nations on dec. 8, 1953 to the world s nations to Pool their knowledge of the atom s peaceful uses for the Good of Mankind. If the nations can go on from this Point and Exchange their knowledge of what the atom can do in creating Power in Medicine in agriculture in Industry Man has a future undreamed of before the bomb fell on Hiroshima in 1945. But will they go into a real Exchange of ideas and if they do will they be Able to continue to do it at the moment they meet other scientists Back Home in the United slates and Russia Are devising uses for the atom in War. The Geneva meeting is being held during a strange Lull in the cold War a period of almost cordial relations Between the East and West when the big Powers Are talking of keeping the atom for peace Only and abolishing it for j War. It is not this meeting important As it. Is and could be that will decide whether Man has found real Wisdom at last or is a Complete fool. The Many meetings which decide that will be those which seek a Way to outlaw atomic weapons and atomic War and leave the atom thereafter Only for peace. Scoot n 8cud. West Berlin ers gel i.
