Every request is considered but please understand that the volume makes it impossible to answer or even acknowledge every Book shortage q. I just read the article in the paper on tuesday september 19, Quot what about the books Quot i did not Call this in but i had been intending to. My child is in the 9th Grade and goes to Ferndale Junior High and does not have a history Book. They give them out for each class and take them Back up and Don t have a Book to bring Home. I Don t think this is Good. I think we pay the Book fee and pay our taxes and think they should have the books and Don t know what the problem is he just says they Don t have a Book they have to give them up after every class. I think they should be Able to buy enough books to go around and we Are trying to give these kids an education. He does bad enough with the books that he has and when he does t have any it makes it that much worse. It suits him Fine but i Don t like it. Anon. A. This is a year of transition in the social studies area in Junior highs according to principal Gaither free. The curriculum was changed in order to include Africa. Asia and Pacific studies in the 7th which moved part of . History to the 8th to be completed in the 9th. This has resulted in some 8th Grade texts and supplements being used in 9th Grade rooms too. The teachers met to outline the programs and provided time in class to do the Reading but if any child wants to Check out a textbook overnight he can do so. With the a a Multi Media Quot used More and More in classrooms a films tapes Library work a the Reliance on a single textbook for a course is considerably less than it used to be. The state incidentally does have a free textbook system it or to be precise our tax dollars pay for free Quot textbooks. A student will be charged if a Book is lost or mistreated but the Book fees we pay actually go for supplies and supplementary books other than texts. Tom v Willie q.

We appreciate the article that appeared in the Enterprise on sunday on Urban ministry but i think one thing needs correcting. The reporters stated that on this methadone detoxification that methadone was used because it was not addictive. Methadone is addictive. It is used because it does no to produce any euphoria and the length of time they Are on it will not addict them and they can get off of their heroin you know physically. Bob Weant Urban off q i wonder Why there should be any hesitation by the Board of education As to the use of the Leonard Street school. As Long As it can be used for educational purposes there should be no question As to the use of it. The Day care and the kindergarten program Are both in the Field of education and therefore in my opinion and Many other people in High Point the first consideration should be Given to these two projects. Why should the Young children of High Point be denied the use of the facility in favor of the Myca just because the Myca just happens to have Money to pay for it and this is the same As Selling the children for Money. If the y had a Hundred thousand dollars to buy this then they can buy facilities and build any place in the City of High Point and if the school Board has any trouble making this decision i say put it to a vote and let the parents and people of High Point vote on it. . Newsman pilots tour roads North Viet ant Power beats u. S. Technology by Peter Arnett a special correspondent if you have wondered Why the North vietnamese can continue to fight on despite the biggest bombing Campaign in the history of War then ride with three Pilots and me Dawn the roads South of Hanoi and find out. Our destination was Nam Dinh City and the Phat diem Cathedral both severely bombed and showplace of the destructive Power of the american air Campaign. Jane Fonda and Ramsey Clark had been there. Now it was the turn of the three pilots just released from a prisoner of War Camp a Navy its. Mark Gartley and Norris Charles and air Force major Edward Elias a and myself. But Long before we reached our destination we were shaking our Heads in wonder not at the destructive Power of the bombs from the sky but at the survival Power of the people on the ground. The pilots previous View of North Vietnam was from the skies above. For years i had watched from the Vantage Point of South Vietnam. Now Here on the ground As we rolled along the narrow highways in the dark hours before Dawn the cliches came True. Here was the Quot ant Power Quot that Pentagon experts theorized Lay behind Hanoi a ability to keep supplies and men moving to the Southern War fronts. Where bombs had scored direct hits on railway cars on the tracks paralleling the Road dark shapes hammered at twisted wreckage while other figures carried Materiel and dumped it into the craters. As Dawn came and we passed through the Railroad Junction of severely bombed Phu be we Caw that the dark shapes were women and they weren to even using buckets they were carrying mud in their Bare hands to fill the craters in. And they seemed to be enjoying it. This Quot ant Power was everywhere. Whereas in South Vietnam the War has denuded the Countryside of population and sent people scurrying into the cities in the North it is the reverse and they swarmed on the Highway. Walking or Riding bicycles lonely roads in Sou a Vietnam at night can mean death or capture. But in the North nighttime is the logical time to travel for the fainthearted. Or for the Supply convoys because it affords Protection from the planes that Fly above. The key to the use of the night is simply that there Are no guerrillas to harrass the convoys or blow up the supplies. In North Vietnam the War is Only from the air. That is Why i observed no barbed wire anywhere no barricaded militia outposts or fortified bunkers. Except for when the planes came Over the editors note a special correspondent Peter Arnett the Winner of a pulitzer prize in eight years of War reporting from South Vietnam has just completed his first visit to North Vietnam. In the following Story he describes the Quot ant Power Quot of the North vietnamese War Effort and the wonder of a visitor at the survival Power of the North vietnamese. North vietnamese Countryside looked positively bucolic. But few things Are Ever what they seem and Elias who piloted a reconnaissance plane before he was shot Down five months ago. Enlightened me. A see those grave Mounds Quot Elias asked As we waited under the Trees for a ferry to Cross a River where a Bridge had been destroyed. About too Yards away Buffalo grazed quietly around the heaps of Earth. A they re antiaircraft pits with the muzzles Down Quot Elias said. Quot let a plane come Over and stick up their snoots in in Peter Arnett and blast away. And those things Are difficult to spot in pictures. It would take a very expert and very Lucky i photo interpreter to see the discovery of the flak Sites and the industrious people were possibly predictable enough. Enough american planes get shot Down each week to adequately suggest the extent of the antiaircraft fire. And Quot people Power Quot has Long been known As North Vietnam a most important commodity. What was min bending to the freed pilots was the extent of North Vietnam a visible Supply Chain. From the time we left the outskirts of Hanoi at 4 a in. One morning to our return at 8 the next night we constantly encountered vehicle convoys rows of stacked ammunition alongside the Road Ste North on Page 2-a oxen draw rails through Nam Dinh to repair damaged Railroad lines a wire photo on tuesday or wednesday vote on welfare Reform assured Washington apr a Senate vote on a liberalized welfare Reform plan was assured today As sen. Abraham a. Ribicoff. D-conn., called up his proposal for debate. The Roll Call however will not come until tuesday or wednesday. Ribicoff offered his proposal As a substitute for a pending amendment which would provide for a test of All the various Reform plans to Deal with problems of welfare families. This procedure guaranteed that his substitute would get the first vote. In the end. However the Senate is expected to resolve Nixon confers with Gromyko the controversy by deciding for a two year test of the plans before anything substantive is done. The test amendment first was offered saturday by sen. Harry f. Byrd jr., . However today Byrd withdrew his proposal in favor of a slightly different test amendment sponsored by sen William v. Roth jr., a Del. Ribicoff a substitute is a liberalized version of president Nixon a family assistance plan which passed the House last year. It provides for a guaranteed annual income for welfare families on a National basis but fixes the payment level at $2,600 for a family of four 8200 More than the Nixon proposal. It would provide subsidies for the working poor As does the presidents plan but would give More fiscal Relief to the states than Nixon offers. This is the moment of truth for welfare Reform Quot said Ribicoff As he called up his substitute. A but i sense there is very Little interest in the Senate or in the administration any longer in this the Nixon plan Calls for a guaranteed annual income for welfare families and Aid for the first time for Tkac working poor. The Senate finance committee conservatives a majority on the panel have never been willing to accept these provisions. Washington a president Nixon and soviet foreign minister Andrei Gromyko conferred at the White House today and will Dine together at Camp David tonight.
