Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - November 24, 1965, Mason City, Iowa The newspaper that makes oil North lowans neighbors HOME EDITION 10c a One MASON CITY IOWA WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 24 1HS Associated Press full Leate Wires Education Act involved but purpose clear Nrlh By CHARLES W WALK North Iowa News Dirtetor Ht G Bailey superintendent of i f nenhal Distdct he l fully understand everything about the Secondary Education Act of He does however believe he knows the purpose of the act and right now thats enough 4v want to lose sight of the fact that the purpose of the program is to help the Kids If it does that it will be worth some addi tional trouble This doesnt mean that Bailey agrees with everything in the act For example he doesnt agree with an apparent assumption made that tnere is a correlation between economically de prived and deprived students T dont think that is a sound assumption at nil in Iowa the veteran administrator says i know it just isnt true in our district It could be true in larger cities and evidentally that s where the program is designed to do the most good Despite this the North Central district is scheduled to receive more than in fed eral money during the next year if it meets the requirements set up by the act That is the fourth largest total scheduled to go to districts in the ninecounty NIAD area Only the Mason City Charles City and Garner Hayfield all larger are eli gible for more money It is a larger total than many other dis tricts which are larger than North Central For example Clear Lake with more than twice as many students as North Central will receive about onethird as much money The reason for the difference is the ap parent poverty levels of the two districts According to government figures in 1960 274 of the 932 students in the North Cen tral district were from lowincome families That is the familys net income for the previ ous year was less than or they were members of a household receiving Aid to De pendent Children ADC payments At the same time Clear Lakes enrollment in all grades was more than 1840 but the gov ernment could find only 94 students from those lowincome families Bailey admits he was surprised to hear that the government found nearly 30 per cent of all North Central students to come from low income families in 1960 He points out that he doesnt believe the towns of the district have any higher percentage of ADC cases than any other North Iowa communities and added that Manly the largest town in the district has a pretty stable economy based on employment by the railroads Bailey considers himself lucky that he doesnt have to find 274 economically deprived students in his district to make the district eli gible for the Federal All he is going to have to do is find as many of them as he can How is hegoing to go about this chore Well Ive already contacted the Cerro Gordo and Worth County welfare people North CentraPhas students from both counties and asked them for the information on ADC Bai ley points out Also we will take a look at our free list for our hot lunch program Bailey doesnt really expect the free list to be much help however During the last two months only about eight or nine of the more than 600 students who participate in North Centrals hot lunch program were on the list I also plan to talk to some of the minis ters in the district Bailey adds Some of the churches conduct welfare programs which might be able to help us locate these students Once the lowincome students have been pinpointed in the district the real work the selection of attendance centers where programs will be conducted and the students who will participate in those programs begins Bailey believes Tomorrow How project areas are se lected what students will be eligible to partici pate in programs and what programs Bailey hopes to initiate at North Central Holiday brings death to lowans GRINNELL UP Miss Grace Craven 56 met her disabled war veteran brother Dwight 49 at the bus station here Tuesday afternoon to drive him home to Malcolm for Thanksgiving A few minutes later both were dead The car driven by Miss Craven was struck by a Rock Island freight train in

Hospital in Knoxville He boarded a bus in Dea Moines to come to Grinnell where his sister waited Mal colm the Craven home is about 11 miles south east of here VOL IDS No 245 Weeks toll 240 GIs Consider policy of 2 Chinas Because of UN feelings UNITED NATIONS NY AP U S officials arc rclia ply reported to be taking a care ful look at the possibility of switching to a twoChinas pol cy because of the growing novcment to scat Red China in the United Nations One authoritative U S source las suggested that an alterna ive will have to be found by next fall to the 16yearold poli cy of trying to keep the door shut to Peking This source add ed thatthe seating of both Red China and the Nationalists might be the only practical course for the United States It is generally conceded at the United Nations that the Chinese Communists have been barred or the last time The General Assembly voted 4747 on the question last week and the pro Peking trend is expected to con inue It is also doubtful if the United States will be able to win enough support next year to re quire that Red Chinas support ers muster a twothirds majori y to get Peking admitted The question now is no longer how to keep the Peking govern ment out diplomatssay but vhat to do about the Nationalist government which rules 12 mil ion people on Formosa Some delegates haye been trying to aunch a twoChinas movement or several years but without uccess The idea is that the Peking overnment representing the mge mainland population vould be given the seat how eld by the Nationalists and hat Formosa would be admit ed as a new member The main obstacles so far have been the substantial oppo sition to seating Peking and the rejection of the twoChinas con cept by both Peking and Taipei Since Red China says it wont join the United Nations unless the Nationalists are expelled the United States and other backers of Chiang Kaisheks regime may be faced next year with the problem of preventing the expulsion of the Taipei gov
