ONLY THE BEGINNING Some of the people supporting proposed "federal aid" to educa- tion bills admit frankly that these represent only a ,beginning. Once the principle had been adopted, they say, increasing a- mounts could be expected. Those acquainted with the way federal projects grow and grow, would l~aturally expect this to happen. Within a decade the federal gov- ernment would be carrying the chief burden of public education. Is this bad? Just to suggest the idea is to show the 'danger. De- cisions of policy for public edu- cation would be made on the na- tional level. After such nation- alization of the public schools, it would be easy to obtain legisla- tion requiring all students to at- tend public ~chools for "national indoctrination" purposes. This is exactly the type of thing we decry in Russia. HOW TO CONTROL These were the methods that made millions of school children Just like Hitler and Mussolini wanted them. To favor federa aid is to argue for the exchange of our present public school sys- tem, with locally controlled pu,b- lic schools operating alongside many private and church related echools, for a nationally financed and nationally controlled educa- tional system. No two ways about it, federal aid would mean unde- sirable federal controls. Controls do go along with fi- nancial assistance, and our feder- al government has no record to the contrary. In fa~t, the Supreme court of the United States has al- ready declared, in the case of farm subsidies, that the federal gov- ernment may control that which it subsidizes. When one federal aid bill was debated in the Sen- ate, amendments to control not only the aid, but also that which it supplements, were offered and accepted. POLITICAL SPOH~ When we recall powerful influ- ences within our own generation to get political influence Into nearly every American Institu tion. it doesn't take much imag tnatlon to see federal control of the American school system fol- lowing any general aid program. We can all remember when, at election trine, WPA workers were told: "Remember who your friends are" when you vote. Dependence upon Washington sets up a political system, super- deluxe model. I would look upon the nationalization of American education, which could be expected to follow .federal aid bills, as a decisive step in the development of a totalitarian state. Should America nationalize her educa- tion, it is my conviction that full nationalization of industry, dis- tribution, and agriculture would follow within a generation. LET'S KEEP FREEI)OM We must remember that the one nation in the recent war whloh was able to alan itself against the axis power was not a socialized state. The one nation that was able to lend arms to its allies was not a Socialized state. The one country now being called upon to help all the rest of the world is not a socialized nation. The one nation now providing the greatest educational system the world ~as ever seen (more higher education for more young people t~an the rest of the world put together), is America. I am not one of those who be- lieve that in order to remain great we must discard suddenly the methods and principles by Dr. Gertrude H. Rich CHIROPRACTOR OFFICE HOURS 9 to 11 A.M. 1:30 to 5 P.

'Pwo! years after England started na- tionalizing her industries she was forced to vote power to the gov- ernment to tell her citizens where to work and what to do! We want none of this.

Inexpensive Unit Protects Refuse, Discourages Rats Would you believe that the aver. age home boards from one to five rats? And that rats damage or destroy two billion dollars' worth of food and property each year! .Yes, these are the facts. Rat control experts say that one of the best ways to eliminate rats is to use galvanized steel garbage canS. Equipped with tight-fitUng covers, such cans keep rats out of edible refuse. Without this source of food, they usually change quar- ters or starve. Home owners often have difficulty ]Eeeping covers on garbage cans--- they are either lost or damaged. If you are faced with this problem, you can solve it by constructing the unit shown. 8Lt ~ 85" P/PI , 'aoLr The unit consists of 5~ feet of ~lnch pipe, a 1-inch waist nut, a 1-1nck malleable ell, a ~4 inch "U" bolt, a length of chain and enough cement for a square base about 4 inches deep and a few inches larger than the base of the can used. Set upright pipe, which may vary in length, into 3 inches of the cement. Assemble other parts as indicated. Such a unit adds life to the gar- babe can by preventing loss or damage of its cover. The concreta base is easy to clean and ksepe unsightly mud and water from cob lectlng around the can's base. A coat of paint can be added to dr~ up this rat-proof refuse area. Mrs. Ben Phlpps and daughter Eldred Read and twin daughters arrived here Monday from Rapid City for a visit at the homes of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Jensen and Mr. and Mrs. John Lindsey. AUDITOR 6UGGESTS I'IAN TO SIDESTEP SPECIAL LEGISLATIVE SESSION Cheyenne, Wyo.---State Audi- tor Everett T. Copenhaver pre- sented a strong argument yester- day against proposals for calling a special session of the Wyoming state legislature. Copenhaver said a thorough survey of the financial condition of Wyoming's state institutions showed they "could get along with their present appropriations if they were allowed to use the entire remaining amounts in the next nine months~nstead of the next 12" This, he said, would carry them long enough to tie in with a de- ficiency appropriation during the next regular 30th session. The only exception, he added. would be the state penitentiary at Rawlins, which would be some $30,000 short. "However," he said. "we have this amount in the omnibus land income fund. with which the state board can assist." Estimating that calling of the state's lawmakers into special session--as requested hy several groops in the state--would cost some $30,000, Copenhaver said of his plan: "Generally, this ~ouId not be good business, ,but it would the expense of a special session legislature." Copenhaver said the necessity of a special session to provide leg- islation to permit Wyoming par- ticipation in the federal hospital building program may be elimin- ated by a bill introduced in con- gress to extend the time for com- pliance one year beyond the July 1, 1948 deadline. INVITE TRUMAN TO SPANISH-AMERICAN VETS MF.ET--SPERFISH Spearfish---A Washington press release this week stated that Rep. Karl Mundt Tuesday urged Pres. Truman to visit Spearfish in early June. In a letter to Truman, Mundt noted that the auxiliary of the United Spanish War veterans of South Dakota has invited the president to address its state con- vention which will be held here June 6-7-8. Mundt wrote, "I understand there is a good possibility of your being in the Black Hills of South Dakota some time in June, and I hope you will be able to adjust your schedule so as to visit th~s delightful section of the country! at the time ,when the auxiliary of United Spanish War veterans are holding their annual convention."

Fellow from one of those public opinion polls was in Andy's Garden Tavern, querying Andy's patrons on everything from that "new look" to the next election. And it occurred to me that there's nothing more typically American than collecting other folks' opin- ions, as well as giving out with one's own. And from where I sit, it's a mighty healthy habit. So long as people can discuss both sides of a question that comes up--whether it eoucrns short skirts versus long, beer compared with cider, or the party versus this country great. For it isn't differences d that matter. The is ion--whether they aftecti of an individual to vote, his mind, or They're all parts that we cherish!
