The school Board decision the Sarasota county Board of Public instruction acting under Federal court mandate has moved to integrate Public schools in the Venice area this fall. In doing so the Board accepted the recommendation of its attorney that it affirm its compliance with the recent decision of . District judge George c. Young. Having exhausted its Legal recourse the Board had no other Choice because we Are a nation governed by Laws. And the . Supreme courts 1954 school desegregation decision is the Law like it or not. Venice is a Law abiding Community and can be counted upon to accept the boards decision with dignity and decorum. More than a clock puncher we overheard a comment this week that throws some Light upon the reluctance of some citizens even seemingly intelligent ones to pay teachers More Money. The comment in this Case was made by a filling station operator. He said in effect a the teacher has it pretty soft a with a Short Day a Short week and a Short year. He knocks off at three of clock he does no to work on saturdays and he has Long summer unfortunately this is the picture that Many people have of the teachers Job. They should stand behind a one Way screen and View the teachers Day from the ringing of the alarm clock in the morning to the grading of the last paper at night. They should also have the experience of sitting at the teacher s desk and wrestling with the problems individually and collectively of 3 5 to 40 restless and Peppy children for six or seven hours a Day. Lets assume that when the filling station operator unlocks his Gas pump in the morning he is greeted with the impatient honks of 30 or More cars of assorted kinds demanding service. As the Day goes on the pressure never relaxes a always 30 or More individual cars needing individual attention. By the time three of clock comes it would be hard to convince the filling station operator that he has had a a a Short Day. And when he goes Home he does no to take a Satchel full of paper work that must be done in preparation for tomorrows a business a Here is the Crux of the misunderstanding. Education is a professional Job a and a highly demanding Job. In most other professional areas where a service to people is the prime objective the expert deals singly with his clients a not in groups. And it is not uncommon for one client to need and receive the service of several experts. The doctor does not Deal in a a mass cures. The lawyer does not Deal in a a mass litigation. The architect does not Deal in a a mass planning. Each individualized the problems of his clients. Unfortunately education cannot operate that Way a in spite of the heart warming picture of Mark Hopkins on one end of a log and a student on the other. It must devise methods of a a group instruction without neglecting the individual students problems. We hear no complaints about the earnings of the doctor the lawyer the architect. Why should it be different with the teacher he also has invested much time and Money in preparing for his profession a especially if he meets the increasingly High standards now expected of him. He too is worthy of his hire. There is no doubt that teachers might improve their state financially by resorting to methods often used by labor. But the idea of a a a teachers strike jars the Public a sense of propriety. And most teachers reject the method As being inappropriate for members of a a service the determination of educators to win professional recognition is a wholesome and worthy aim. There is no Field of service with the possible exception of Medicine in which professional expert Ness is More essential than in education. The people can do themselves a favor if they will quit thinking of the teacher As a clock puncher and think of him As a skilled professional servant whose Worth to society demands recognition in dollars rather than in sentimental declarations of appreciation. Gainesville daily Sun Library news by the Rev. Miles Depagter the Rev. Depagter became pastor of the Grace methodist Church May 21, 1961. Previously he was in Myca work for 13 years Detroit and Indianapolis Detroit conference youth director two years four years in the Navy As lieutenant commander. A Library is one of the most wonderful places in the world. It is a place of rest or thrilling adventure. There is a hush and a quietness that allows one to look in on his deepest thoughts. It permits you to look into the spirit and mind of other people. It is a place of composure and poise. Upon occasions we have a need of a very specialized Type of information or fact. The Library is a place where we can go and meet the particular need of our lives whether it is historical or metaphysical. If we have not needed to find answers to certain technical facts we can go into another part of the Library and pick up a Book and immediately leave this world and be in the world of space. We May read a Story that carries us Back to the time when the indians were living their lives on the Plains and in the mountains. We can lose ourselves and become a Pilot in an air plane by Reading. We become completely lost in the thrill of knowing a Friendship that a person can have with an animal like the a Black we can visit another area and read books about Marine life stories of exciting sagas of the sea or something new and technical like ski div ing. There Are times in our lives when we Are so very proud of the United states. It is possible to go Back and read about the lives and heroic courage of some of the great founders. It strengthens our patriotism. We like a Library because it allows us to step outside of our own Little world and be As big adventuresome and As travelled As practically any country in the world. Sometimes when our soul is discouraged and we have the need to think through on philosophical problems the shelves Are loaded with Many approaches to these same problems As other people have encountered them in their lives. Sometimes we feel that we want More than what other people have experienced by Way of philosophy and we can read books that talk about a Many a relationship with god. How he can find a the peace that the world cannot give and neither can it take we read about the lives of men like or. E. Stanley Jones and or. Albert Schweitzer who have placed their lives at the feet of Christ and became his personal ambassador to the needy wherever they might be. Our soul is thrilled with their adventure their accomplishments and the Beauty of their lives. The Library truly is a wonderful place for communication from one adult mind to another. We can also find a children a department and a youth department where some of the knowledge of life and the insight into living is made available through stories for the Little ones. We love a Library. We know it Cost Money. We Are going to give some of our Money and ask others to do the same. Our Community is Small enough that we May have to sacrifice a Little to bring it to pass. When we have accomplished this we will have made a contribution to the individual lives of everyone in our Community that uses a Library. Speaking collectively we will be raising the academic educational and cultural level of our Mutual existence. In a Library All the world is at our feet. Around the waterfront with Jack Hutchinson members of the Venice yacht club 94 Strong made a cruise to the Sarasota Field club in 18 boats last sunday. The Fleet departed at 10 30 a. M. Led by Russel tilt in his boat due to rough water in the Gulf it was decided to go by Way of the protected waterway. There were some anxious moments while the Large boats eased under the Albee Road Bridge Span but with antennas tops and Heads Down everyone made it with at least a few inches to spare. The temporary Pontoon opened on prearranged schedule. At Blackburn Bridge the flotilla bunched up while a sprately female Bridge tender went round and round to open the Bridge. The tender at the Stickney Point Bridge could t Budge the Span. Volunteers from halted cars came to lend their weight on the turning bar this is the age of automation and atomic Power and it last the Fleet got through. The turn to the Field club was made and soon All the boats were moored at the spacious docks.

At least six boats were aground at one time or another. Two sustained unknown damage to propellers or Shaft. One lost Power and decided to finish the trip under better conditions and tied up near Midnight pass. For the record the waterway from Venice to Sarasota for anything bigger than an outboard stinks and even the outboards go aground. It is poorly marked where it is supposedly marked at Best and unmarked Cross your fingers and guess at worst.

Our buying. For example school buses were $250 less than we paid last year.

It is hoped that if additional funds Are forthcoming later in the year we can get two More buses be cause it is Felt a 10-year-old bus takes too much maintenance and is of questionable safety. Or. Shoemaker pointed out that a Lack of additional busses could mean curtailment of the current Board policy of picking up students less than two Miles from school who continued on Page 6 i also request your questions and As space permits will do my Best to give you Frank answers.

Of dollars spent on this Channel ? in the past months raise serious question in this writers mind of the future of bureaucracy. The waterway is not finished the marking is not Complete. This we know. However to one who has been up and Down it Many times before and during the dredging parts of it Are still a mystery.
