Mount Pleasant News (Newspaper) - March 31, 1958, Mount Pleasant, Iowa
The it. Pleasant news partly Cloudy mane these Days by George e. Sokolsky the go getters bark in the Early years of the 20th Century in the Days of Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft it used to be that a Type of Man was regarded favor j ably in the United states who was known to be a he was an Active aggressive forceful per j son a Lily who went out into the world to build a Fortune and Quot to j get somewhere Quot he depended upon i no Security but he made friends j most often lie made the right kind of marriage and he stuck to it triese were terrifically hardworking people and if you want to know them read Elbert Hubbard s a a Little curiously few of them died of coronary Occlusions to use a frightening phrase or from bleeding ulcers. They took work Iii their stride ate big meals of heavy food drank More Beer than wine and More whiskey than Gin. They smoked cigars instead of cigarettes they went out with their of to wives and when they cheated it was shamefaced by. Their children behaved at Home and were afraid of the Quot old i was minded of those Days when i read a passage in father James Gilliss Quot my last Book Quot this River a says Alice in wonderland. You have to Row with All your might to remain where you so too m the realm of spiritual life. We Are working our Way upstream. We dare not Dawdle if we rest on our oars we shall go swiftly Down we Are not on a Placid Lake in a Wood sheltered from All but the gentlest zephyrs we Are working our Way up against the rapids in a tumultuous River Quot ii this sounds a bit like Chesterton it is because father Gillis could Sec his age in perspective. He knew that the world would not be saved by preaching at it but that one had patiently to wait until some event some disillusionment or perhaps a Miracle opened menus eyes to the i l tightening confusion into which we have thrown ourselves. The scientists whose business is learning have begun to wonder whether education As we use the term is what in other Ages used to be called learning or whether it is merely a device to keep Young people out of mischief. At any rate we have had plenty of costly education in the United states for More than a Century and yet we Are Short of Learned personnel. Everybody complains about that the most recent ones being or. James r. Killian. Jr., Admiral Rickover and or. Merle tuve surely men who have achieved extraordinary distinction in the world of the Learned. Some time ago i was looking for a typist to assist a very Busy Young lady who has settled Here permanently. So we examined a Large number of Young ladies All of whom had been to Public school and High school and some to College. Each one of these Young ladies had Bren in attendance at some school from 12 to 16 years which is a very Long time. But what could they have done there one girl told me that she had attended the school of Fine arts at Columbia University. This fascinated me As there is no school of Fine arts at Columbia University soon i had discovered that she had taken a class in Art appreciation in a catch All school for general studies which required no matriculation. But what had these girls Learned too apparently the scientists Are bumping up against tile same Lack of preparation in the1 High schools. Or. Killian said a a if we Are to have better science education we must have better Over All education and if we Are to have better education we must have a shift in values so that intellectual interests and performance arc not played Down and socially denigrated. We must cultivate in All of our education a distaste for the take it easy and anti intellectual attitudes and a positive taste for what is excellent in intellect and if we Are to develop the intellect j Tual manpower to see us through j this period of great changes we surely must pay attention to this advice while the ability to play basketball May be a Joy unto itself and stir the admiration of the gals it will not Send a Jupiter or a Vanguard through the skies or produce the practical Wisdom required to pull us through a recession.

Mauch is Isas by f Arrier toe per week by mall >7.50 per year soviet decl Arati Ion causes stir Russia announces halt to nuclear weapon tests Moscow Gas Russia announced today its one Way decision to halt nuclear weapons tests without waiting for any agreement with the United states Britain and oth t Western Powers. The announcement expected for y me time was interpreted As a new p. Ope Anda blow against the West. Especially the United states which h is held out for an Iron Clad agreement that would both halt tests and production of nuclear weapons. Nim Premier Nikita Khrushchev at the same time announced to a joint session of the supreme soviet parliament that Nikolai Bulgarin will be president of the soviet state Bank. Khrushchev wearing a dark suit and two orders of Lenin decorations sat in the front Row while Bulgarin sat in the second. Khrushchev a agricultural Reform report whose theme again was a declaration that the soviet Union must catch up with capitalistic countries in food production quickly was approved by parliament. Formation of the flew government also was quickly approved and then Gromyko made his announcement. Gromyko said Russia was taking the unilateral step in the Hope that the United states and Britain we Ould join in ending tests. If the other Powers continued testing he said then Russia would have to take further measures in the Light of its own Security. The foreign minister claimed that Russia was Hie Only country ready to sign an agreement halting atomic and Hydrogen bomb tests. He said Russia was aware that ending the tests would not eliminate the threat of atomic War. A that is Why a he said Quot we simultaneously and clearly declare we consider it our chief aim to reach agreement with the other Powers on an unconditional ban on All types of atomic anti Hydrogen weapons ending their production and a Complete destruction of existing stocks with appropriate he added that the United states and Britain Quot still Are not showing any readiness to Geee to this Quot the soviet Union recently rushed to completion an intensive series of nuclear tests in Siberia while the United states has scheduled a new series of tests for this Spring and summer. Gromyko ridiculed the argument that the British needed time for tests to catch up with the United states and the soviet Union he said continued tests Only would increase the present Gap. He said he though it strange that France opposed a halt in testing he warned France that entry into the nuclear armaments race would be a blow to French resources. Quot the Ria Tiger to Western Economy a he said a comes not from ending nuclear tests and not from ending the armament race but from the militarization which has caught in its vice the entire Economy of nato members at the same Lime the foreign minister said that production of atomic and Hydrogen bombs had not saved the United states from a having 5,300.000 u n e in p i o y e d americans a a he claimed that an agreement among Russia Tho United states and Britain to ban the bombs should be easy to achieve since they Are the Only three nations having them. Saying that some americans thought the bombs were necessary to prevent War Gromyko said a they Are trying to do the same As former president Truman a justify the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Quot la.
