Clark Proposal Would Equalize Little Leagues WASHINGTON - ll Little League baseball is as American as apple pie, as many contend then little girls should have an equal opportunity to win a spot on a Little League team, Sen ator Dick Clark reasons. To assure this equal consideration for would-be female Hank Aarons, the Iowa Democrat has responded to the Little League board request and introduced legislation to amend the federal charter under which Little League has operated since 1964. Rep. Martha Griffiths (D-Mich.) has Offered similar legislation in the house. The Clark and Griffith bills would change the charter word ing to substitute “boys and girls” w h e r e ver the word “boys” appears, and would re place the expression, “citizenship, sportsmanship and man hood,” with “citizenship and sportsmanship.” “Common sense should dictate that ability — not sex — is the best criterion for competitive athletic eligibility,” Clark told the senate in urging passage of his bill. “Besides, interviews with youngsters on Little League teams throughout the country generally indicate the boys could care less about having girls on their teams. The usual sentiment is, 'If she’s good, let her play.’ ” Second YMCA Outing Wednesday at Bakery Advance registrations are not necessary for Wednesday’s second Central YMCA summer outing, a 9:30 to 11:20 a m. tour of tho Colonial bakery.

Workshop IOWA CITY (AP) - The University of Iowa will hold a workshop June 27-28 on transactional analysis (TA), a technique for achieving smoother and more efficient communications in business and industry. TA combines theory of personality with a method for analyzing and understanding communication between people. The technique was developed by Dr. Erie Berne, author of “Games People Play”. Open to Executives The workshop will be open to executives in business, industry, government and private organizations. TA is based on the idea that every individual’s personality can be broken down into three stages, each of which is a distinct source of behavior based o n previously experienced feelings and happenings. Three Ego States The three ego states are always with us and any one can surface at any time. The parent ego state usually expresses itself in critical or prejudicial behavior or in instructing others. It is activated when one is required to give directions or control people. The child ego state may be seen in playfulness, rebelliousness, irresponsibility or compliance with the requests of others. Analytic Approach When one is relaxing the child ego state takes over. The adult ego state objectively gathers information from previous and present experiences and decides on appropriate action. It enables people to make an analytic approach to living. During the workshop, practice exercises, role-playing and case histories will help participants gain skill in personal use of TA. rRAOtil VISIT THE {flit} erie MARION OFFICE Complot® Circulation And Want Ad Service. 743 loth STREET Marion Office Phone 398-8430 Or You May Dial 398 8234 To Order Your Want Ad.
