Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 24, 1962, Mason City, Iowa North Daily Newspaper r Honv VOL MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE The newspaper that mokes all North lowans neighbors HOME EDITION Uttltod WirM NOVEMBER 24 UOc Paper ConiliU ol Two OM MO Pak RAWALPINDI Pakistan AP China has offered to sign a nonaggression pact with Pakistan informed sources said Saturday The offer was made in a note from Peking to President Mohammad Ayub Khans govern ment Pakistans Foreign Minister Mo hammad Ali refused to comment on the report But he said he had received and accepted an offer from Premien Chou EnLai to visit China at an early date Ali made the remark to news men in the lobby of Parliament House Reliable parliamentary inform ants said however that the re port was correct and that the Chi nese offer was not being consid ered by the government The Karachi Englishlanguage Daily Dawn carried the report prominently It said a point of the proposal pact was an offer by China to help Pakistan against aggression from any quarter even from within It added that the Chinese had raised no objection to Pakistan remaining a member of the pro Western CENTO and SEATO al liances if such a pact were signed The reported offer came during an emergency session of the Pak istani National Assembly which has heard strong criticism of the United States and Britain Pakis tans allies for rushing arms to India Pakistan feels these arms are a threat to her Some Pakistanis in the disillusionment with the Western powers have been talk ing of adopting neutralism as a policy Red Chinas unilateral cease fire on the border with India and the offer of a troop puliback has bolstered the Pakistani view that the present IndianChina conflict is only a temporary flareup which merits no Western assistance to Jndia In the debate Saturday the nonaggression pact Teachers eyed by union No says NEA By MOfeT J SULLIVAN CHICAGO Ameri cas public school teachers pro fessional people who should be represented by a professional association or are they em ployes who should join a trade union and demand higher wages through collective bargaining The clash over this question spells possible trouble in the schools The 800000member National Education Association NEA stands on the belief that teach ers dont need unions Just as staunchlythe 75000member American Federation of Teach union believes that only through collective bargain ing will teachers realize a fair wage In recent years the AFLCIO has been putting on a drive to organize teachers out of the NEA and into AFT Last year the Chicagobased AFT won by a substantial mar gin a collective bargaining elec tion giving it the right to nego tiate for New York Citys 40000 public school teachers Last April the teachers uinioi drew national attention by stag ing a strike in New Yorks pub lic schools Twenty thousand teachers formed picket lines and caused a oneday closing of schools It paid off said AFT na tional president Carl J Megel The teachers won pay hikes ranging from to a year They caught in a political bind between Republi can Gov Nelson Rockefeller and Democrat Mayor Robert Wag ner of New York but they broke the impasse The NEA at its Denver con vention in July launched a counterattack NEA Executive Secretary Dr William G Carr in a convention speech charged that organized labor was trying to recoup its declining membership with a drive aimed at whitecollar workers beginning with teach ers He said the AFLCIO was spending heavily in a drive aimed at affiliating all public school teachers in a whitecollar union with emphasis at first on the big cities Carr said that union affilia tion was incompatible with a teachers professional status and that the teachers professional obligation was to place the welfare of students above all other considerations He said teachers strikes are strikes against the student not the employer He pledged that NEA members will never walk out on the students in their charge Megel calls such arguments more evidence of the fear com plex permeating the National Education Association these days Their NEA charge that union membership is declining is false Megel said in an in terview If anything its on the upswing As for socalled in United States was accused of making a local border affair between India and China into an expanding fullfledged global war for its own benefit The accusation was made by Sardar Bahadur Khan brother of President Ayub Khan and leader of the opposition He said the supplying of arms to India disregarded Pakistans safety and security Khan said the Pakistan govern ment should change its foreign policy become neutral and with draw from CENTO SEATO and other pacts immediately He advocated a policy of friend ship with all nist or capitalist W Averell Harriman US as sistant secretary of state who is in India at the head of a mission surveying Indias arms needs is expected here in the next day or two to meet Ayub Khan Pakistan has shown increased irritation over the American and British arms buildup of the Indian army requested by the New Delhi government to fight the Chinese Communist border invasion The Pakistanis are worried lest the arms eventually be turned against Pakistan by India in the longfestering Kashmir dispute In the eyes of Pakistanis the IndiaChina undeclared war is a temporary conflict that will soon blow over while IndianPakistan rivalry will remain for a long time at all If anything union affilia tion enhances the professional status of a person a resolution calling for state laws

experts Saturday as they investi gated the tangled wreckage in which 17 persons diet j All aboard perished in the crash andfire Friday of Flight 297 en route from Newark NJ to Atlan ta Ga via Washington DC The crash of the fourengine turboprop airliner occurred in bright sunshine about 10 miles southwest of Baltimore Ed Slat tery of the CAB said We are concerned because there was no

fire V Amish taken to court A conflict on teachers INDEPENDENCE AP name of this community signifies he attitude of 10 Amish parents icheduled to appear in court here Saturday afternoon because they want to send their children to teachers of their own choosing State law says children under must be taught by certified teachers 16 Some residents of the Amish lommunity in northwest Buchan an County want to continue send ing their children to Amish schools where teachers have only ighthgrade educations The Amish were warned in Sep ember that the law was being vi olated Ten parents later were ar rested and charged in Justice of the Peace Court with failure to send their children to schools with certified teachers The 10 posted bond for ap pearance Saturday before Justice of the Peace Joe Koeppel Dan Borntreger head of the fourman Amish school commit tee was asked to comment I guess if they want to put some of the Amishmen in jail then I guess they will he said The Amish want to be left alone to pursue their simple way of life They are quiet people with strong family ties maintain them selves on their farms and pay their bills and taxes The men are bearded The women wear bonnets and long skirts The boys wear broadbrimmed black hats The Amish use horses for farm ing and ride buggies for most local travel Their homes gener ally are without electricity and running water It is part of their belief that Amish should teach Amish Andrew Kaufman M father of two children in one of the two Amish schools put it this way Why should we hire a college Irained person to teach when all we want is an eighthgrade edu cation We do not work in fac tories We are just plain ordinary farm people Though 10 parents were charged with misdemeanors in failing to send their children to certified teachers the Amish schoolsface perhaps a more serious challenge in anSther court J J Jorgcnscn county superintendent has asked for a District Court injunction to close the schools He said he acted aft er warning that the schools failed o meet standards required by law Two privately operated now have 37 students Classroom objects include arithmetic read ing writing spelling health ge ography and history Borntreger said the Amish pay their teachers a month and cant afford the higher cost of outside or college trained teachers He summed up the feeling of his people this way We are trying to keep our chil dren on the farm We do not be lieve in sending them to town schools because we want to pre serve our simple way of living and we feel this would be lost if they went to town schools ;
