Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 20, 1961, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Idittd for MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE VOL 100 The newspaper that makes all North I o wans neighbors1 Aisoclated Press United Presf International Full Leaw Wires MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY OCTOBER 20 1961 Paper Consists of Two SectionsSection No It Russ China split on Albania grows Credit to nations newsboys Training in salesmanship By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK former newspaperboys now in the Cabi net have taken a look at todays yo igest generation and done some head shaking Too much coddling of children too little par ental discipline too little urging of offspring to get gainful jobs perhaps because allowances are higher these days But a publisher who has busi ness relations with some 32000 youngsters across the land comes to the kids defense Theyre as good as ever he says at least in the smaller towns where his pub lication largely is distributed Saturday is Newspaperboy Day So a lot of famous former news boys may be looking over the shoulders of the two Cabinet members Commerce Secretary LUher H Hodges and Health Education and Welfare Secretary Abraham A Ribicoff Some in the list are former Presidents Hoover Eisenhower and Truman Chief Justice War ren Gen Gruenther Sens Spark man Mundt and Yarborough Jack Dempsey and Walt to name only a few Hodges says todays parents arent using discipline to teach children the joys and rewards of work He fears this is helping to make the nation soft Ribicoff also decries coddling and lays a lot of the blame to restrictive laws on hiring young sters But he sees a growing feel ing against teaching of selfre spect and a sense of responsibility through work The publisher who thinks neith er the boys nor the parents es pecially in the multitude Of small er cities are that bad is George R Lamade of Williamsport Pa His newspaper Grit is billed as a national publication devoting itself to smalltown America One of its early newsboys was Luther B Hodges himself Others include Happy Chandler of Ken tucky and Ford Frick present baseball commissioner House Re publican Leader Halleck Carl Sandburg and Gene Autry Many city newspaper publishers report having their troubles re cruiting youthful distributors these days But in big and small cities they are likely to agree that newsboys still can learn a lot thats useful later on They cite training in salesmanship learning to talk on their feet making contacts with various types of people getting poise and selfassurance training in the virtues of reliability and promptness j Juvenile delinquency may makej the headlines these days But La made says that in large sections of the land there are plenty of American parents who want to improve their childrens position in life by encouraging them to take the laws allow will give them the training and experience they need Give a boy something to do that will improve himself he says and you help him keep out of trouble So the secretaries and the pub lisher really get together after all And Lamade also agrees that many parents seem inclined to delegate the responsibility to cul tivate good work habits and atti tudes among youngsters to the schools and churches All three say this should pri marily be a job for parents with out downgrading the roles of the schools churches and lawmakers So if youre a newsboy today you can sec you rate high with many persons And if you belong to the big army of onetime news paper delivery boys you might pause to spare a smile for one of your successors It might even be a flrl Hoffos daughter to wed A unioncompany tie DETROIT UPI Team sters union president James R Hoffas daughter marries a company man Saturday at a lavish wedding followed by a champagne and
