What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

I take my hat o ff to the men who are willin to serve on a school board. There ain’t nothin in it but a lot of grief and hard work. It’s a position where it’s darned if you do and darned if you don’t! Never heard of a school board member gettin a bouquet for a job well done. For the good of the kids school boards sometimes have to make 'decisions which ain’t none too popular, but they are in closer touch with the problems and know much more about what’s goin on than we do, so we ought not be too critical. To have good schools the Superintendent has to back the teachers, the school board has to back the Superintendent, and the people of the community have to back up the school board that we elect. We’ve always had good schools in Dillon—let’s do all we can to keep it that way. Very truly yours, Elmer Higby P.S. Isn’t it amazin that some parents who can’t manage their own kids get awful mad when the teachers have to! • C l u b N o t e s A convocation of Dillon Chapter No. 8 of the Royal Arch Masons will be held at the Masonic Temple in Dillon Thursday evening at 8 o’clock.

In ternational Association in Oregon. “ It looks as though they decided this was illegal and that they would have to get rid of it sooner or later and to go ahead and do it'now ,” said Carl L. Taylor, general counsel of the union. “ I think it is a very intelligent decision,” he added. The union had charged in its lawsuit that the separate class ifications and pay scales were discriminatory. Federal law re quires equal pay for equal pay for equal work. While pay scales differ across the country, Taylor said the company move would close a gap of as much as 40 cents per hour between men and women’s pay, putting the scale for both at about $2.80 per hour. Taylor said the international union had not been directly in formed of Safeway’s decision, but that the company was sending letters to union locals around the country, asking if the action is satisfactory to the union. “ 1 expect alij o f our locals will approve bcause it is of great benefit to our locals,” Taylor said. He said th e s u it, by the in ternational union and Local 1188 in Coos Bay. Ore,, had beep expected to come to trial in June. Taylor said company letters to locals, advised that starting with the May 2 work week, “ Safeway Stores, Inc., has decided to classify all o f its lightduty clerks as heavy- duty clerks,” and all would hence? forth be designated “ food clerks,” The letter said the company thereafter would “ pay all food clerks at the heavy-duty rates in conform a n ce with the current bargaining agreement.” The letter said the reason for the change was to “ permit greater fle x ib ility ” in m a k ing work assignments. \Since this procedure will p r o - , duce increases in compensation to some employes, and will not result ip decreases for any, we assume there is no objection on the part of the union,” it said. One letter was signed by Michael C. Hudson, branch manager of Safeway’s Portland, Ore., branch, Taylor said.

The only death sentence passed and carried out for a strictly of fense involved desertion by an Army private in Europe. The death sentence was executed against fifty servicemen for rape, •six of those crimes being com mitted against American military nurses. . Although the military services did not at that time ke°p records listing executions according to civilian or military categories, a review o f court-m a rtial and execution data compiled by the Defense Department showed that in nine cases resulting in executions of the perpetrators nine were U.S. civilians. Fifty three of the victims were Am erican servicem e n , and 75 allied civilians were the targets of the crimes in 75 cases. Four Am e rican servicem e n w e re executed for committing capital crimes against enemy civilians. A further breakdown shows 50 cases of rape, 18 of both rape and murder, 72 murders and one desertion.

NEW YO RK (A P ) ’ — The cessation of government funding of the supersonic transport plane is being called a victory for antitechnology elements of society, a conclusion that seems too simple for such a com plex issue. If such a conclusion is accepted, we \vould have to believe that the following unlikely companions belong to the same brotherly commune, when we know in fact that some a re hardly on speaking terns : 1 —The ecologist who fears that the interrelationships o f the physical and biological worlds is being distorted, with many known consequences and more to be feared. - . —The city dweller, who cannot understand how so many millions can be spent on making a faster airplane when the nation cannot afford to provide proper housing for its citizens. —The commuter, who ponders why he should want to go to Europe or the Orient at supersonic speed when his cold and dirty train lays idle be tween stops, affording him a view of the nearby jammed superhighway. —H ie economist, who fears that the big plane would be a financial disaster and asks why, if it is such a good business proposition, a con sortium o f business interest didn't attempt to fund it. —The public official, who suspects that some sort of a tide is sweeping over the nation and, though he doesn’t understand it, realizes he must ride it or be swamped. There are many other opinions and attitudes lumped together in the catchall antitechnology argument, but it should be clear that they hardly constitute one group. There may, in fact, be no one substantial and powerful antitechnology group in the country—at least one capable o f swaying public opinion to its own ends on such a major issue. What is often called antitechnological is simply the desire to see technology used more clearly for the benefit of mankind rather than simply to prove that something is possible or financially profitable. Much o f the background for the defeat in Congress of the SST funding grew spontaneously during the debate of the 1960s, in which Americans both benefitted and were penalized by their devotion to technology. Technology has been worshiped in America. For years, men in the street seldom questioned or failed to take pride in the boast that technology built America. There was an erosion of that belief in the 1960s, a period in which the Gross National Product doubled in terms o f current dollars, transforming the lives of millions: two cars, two homes, three television sets, European vacations, art, good food. For the first time in man’s life it was said seriously that nothing in the physical world was impossible to him. At the same time: war, deteriorating cities, polluted water and air, rising noise levels, civil discord amazing contrasts between wealth and poverty, lost ideals, generation gaps, confused goals—all of which con tributed to the feeling that the attempt to do everything might accomplish little in human terms. And so, in recent years the need for national priorities has symbolized technology or provided the opportunity to exert those priorities than to shelve the SST? ! ’> ; ! ; -J’ i B & t l d M s f c A S a & W f M f t b e * e s N v « d * f r ih lrlU 1n lgh r 4 * * 4 t t o s t im omeel rampant toohnotogyA uU ma j ssus.ttB e supersonic transport? 1 Will we need this plane some day?

Hal Boyle’s Column Curbstone Comments HUE INSURANCE ISN’T EN0UNNI Your home and belongings face many hazards that even \fire arid extended coverage\ won’t cover. But a State Farm Homeowners Policy provides complete protection . . . even covers you in case of lawsuits. See me today about a State Farm Homeown ers Policy that fits i our needs. It’s lie same good deal as our car insurance. NEW YO RK ( A P ) — Curbstone comments of a Pavement Plato: Middle age, like marriage, is an honorable estate. Why, then, doesn’t somebody pay it honor? Whoever blew a bugle for middle age? Whoever marched in a parade for it? Whoever fired even a one-gun salute for middle age? Whoever issued a stamp in its honor? Who did? Nobody did. But it is high time somebody did. This country is always looking for something to celebrate, and since there doesn’t seem to be anything else on the horizon right now worth celebrating, why not hold a celebration for good old middle age? A tribute to middle age, which has long been made noteworthy more by its aches than its pains, is long overdue. “ For Pete’s sake, why should anybody be honored just because he is middle aged,” some mav grumble. To which there is only one sensible rejoinder: “ Well, for Pete’s sake, why not? Can you think o f a better reason?\ Reaching middle age in America is a feat, and surviving are a miracle. The tough years are those between 40 and 65, when middle age waxes and wanes, flowers and fades. No period of life is more unpopular—either among the masses or the classes. Nobody looks forward to middle age, and most people are more than halfway through it before they will even a dibit to themselves that they have stepped into it. The U.S. middle-ager is the anonymous martyr of our time. The elderly regard him as still an upstart, and the teen-ager looks upon him as a' mortal enemy because to him he is the voice o f caution. He does most of the nation’s work, most of its worrying, and pays most of its taxes. His wife; his kids, and his Uncle Sam all turn to him for sup port—and all take him for granted. He is goaded like a donkey until retirement, when he is turned out to pasture at half fodder and forgotten. Should this faithful servant of mankind trudge into the darkling dusk without accolade? If homage is due him—and it is— how should that homage be paid? There are several possibilities: Couldn’t we reduce National Pickle Week to six days and declare the seventh National Middle-ager Day? Then it would become the duty of every younger man to take to lunch the middle-ager whose job he is (trying to get. How about listening to a middle-ager at least once a month? Nobody listens to one now—except when he’s talking to himself. How about everybody getting o ff the middle-agers’ back for a while and let him lift his head and walk upright just once? . u DOM ORI 24 S.
