Think of Khiva Shore pm which is now a territory lost in the russian Empire it was once a great state among the great of the world. History is not Static we became the first nation on Earth when j Franklin d. Roosevelt took us into War today our Primacy is not. Only being challenged by Thrush j Cher of Russia but by Mao Tzejung of China history is the rec Ord of the shifting and changing relationships among Peoples Cyrus Eaton says Quot leave Russia alone let her Deal Aith her economic theories and practices time would have a big it feet on these bin to build places All around them from which we can launch bombs and missiles gives that nation a Solidarity that it would not have it they did no to feel the Western world was plotting to destroy dip a the affected schools would require a millage Levy of Only 30.92 Mills.

Several from Iever to hit the Gulf const lava Hie Salem service area which includes Salem Independent Fairview no. I Maple Grove Independent Center no. 6 and Oak Hall no. 5 were present tor the i general meeting. Yod would Vvs be in less peril it we were defenceless of course it can be argued As a communist once argued with me that soviet Russia would be foolish to conquer territory. What marxism will do is to conquer the minds of men to Lessen resistance to marxist ideas and to their manifestations in the Sov Iet system. This is particularly True of Europe which is tired tired almost beyond endurance. Since the French revolution 1789-17951, Europe has been living wars revolutions changes the abolition of feudalism the abolition of monarchy the emergence of the Gutter to Rule men tile Impact of anti Christ Landy which some men Call science the attack upon the family system. These j antedate a what matters us that much of Mankind is ready to accept peace at any Price even at the Price of being dominated by the Kremlin a anything rather than to be Fried by a Hydrogen bomb explosion. And this defeatism strikes America too. So Cyr is Eaton the capitalist says a we re faced with a condition whether we like it not in which Russia has All the instruments of i modern War and it just does no to make sense to continue that kind of an armaments contest. This is the time tor anyone who feels i this Way to speak up. Quot i think you la find the average i businessman connected with in Duttry realizes As keenly As i do that world War Iii would be the destruction of i he building and school Plant committee report was Given at the general meeting by Guy hummed chairman he reported that the committee which had toured the school arca to visit the schools made the following recommendations 1. The mount pleasant High school is entirely adequate for the needs of the proposed District for some time to come. 2. Grade school buildings in mount pleasant Are More than adequate for the area and population now being served 3. Pleasant Lawn has an adequate building not being used to capacity. It is recommended that student population be increased to i 120. 4 Tho Trenton Independent building not adequate tor Pupil population of Trenton Independent and Trenton township. The com j Minitee suggests moving two of the i better Rural buildings in the area into Trenton to provide four room operation and increase housing ability to too pupils. 5. At Rome an adequate building is not being used to capacity. Four j available rooms should be used to increase capacity to too pupils. 6. It is recommended that Jackson township operate As at present for the time being. Four available rooms Are capable of housing too pupils. And the conclusions to such an argument is what Are we to Truckle under and apologize for being alive Are we to beg Khrushchev a Pardon for having ideas of our own As to How to achieve a peace Are we still a Fofe reign nation Eaton swords explain the wis i Dom of Karl Marx who told the i workers that they have nothing to lose but their chains. Cyrus Eaton j appeals to the capitalists to accept Craven cowardice because they have so much to los it it. Here Are his j words anyone who is a capitalist ought to go for it because in a War a1 the material accumulations of the past would go. One Hydrogen bomb would Lay this great City in in a word a capitalists save your investments whatever happens i heard them say things like that in Russia in 1417 those who said it the steering committee meeting later did not act on either of Hie i t ports because of the revisions that will be necessary because of the including of Salem in the study. The steering committee also deferred action on the report of the directors election method committee also because of the including of Salem in the study. This committee composed of Dale i Teberg. Chairman Dennis Klopfenstein Stanley Looker and Glen i Scarff recommended that Hie reorganized area be divided into five segments with one director from j each of the five and each director to he elected by a vote of the real dents of tile entire reorganized i a the proposed division of the i reorganized area w Ould be As Fol lows i.

The steering committee expects a i to meet again in two weeks to give j i further consideration to the plans j oversubscribed their 1958 red Eros quota and in the face of adymae economic conditions gave their chapter 83&Quot More Money than Ever before.
