THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla.
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1964
December issue of the "NEA Jour-
nal," the official publication of the
National Education Association.
Prof. Hurt challenges the con-
cept that good teaching is insep-
arable from research. "Humbug,"
he says of it. We all admire good
teaching. We all admire significant
research. But no one has even
shown a necessary and inevitable
connection between them."
Prof. O'Connor, on the other
hand, points out the need for orig-
inality in many areas, and he -draws
a connection between the faculty
for original thinking and involve-
ment in research. "Research schol-
are should contribute to their pro-
fessions, should enter into a dialec-
tic, modifying their own and each
other's contributions until some-
thing close to a just or appropri-
ate description, or a set of prin-
ciples, is arrived at. If this is not
done on the university level, then
teaching on the junior college, high
school or small college level will
become dull and heavyhanded."
Prof Hurt insists upon a distinc-
tion between research and study.
"Granted, the teacher who is not
constantly engaged in professional
study ought to be drummed out of
the profession, for a decent college
has no place for the laggard and
the ignoramus. The most necessary
and constructive kind of study,
however, is often not the kind of
research that leads to publishable

Because Of Handicaps
WASHINGTON, D. C.-Treat the
handicapped child as an equal with
his classmates, see that he studies,
and avoid coddling him.
That's the advice of specialists
and regular teachers, Dorothy Wal-
eski writes in the December issue
of the "NEA Journel," publication

America is making history in the home with imagination,
with dash and surrounded by more color than ever before.
Biggest news of all is the renewed interest in the master bed-
room-for relaxation, for sleeping, and even for eating.
Crackers in bed no but a
bench at the foot of the bed can
serve a multitude of purposes
including a midnight or morn-
ing snack. A charming dining
area, created with a small
round table and pull-up chairs,
will enhance any bedroom and
expand its liveabilityy'.
This idea is shown here in a
room designed for the Hey-
wood-Wakefield Company of
Gardner, Mass. and selected by

shown to over 11,000,000 Fam-

A handsome example of how
well Early American design,
contemporary color and acces-

of sophistication and charm,
this room features furniture
from Heywood-Wakefield's fa-

THE "SACRED COW"
Surprising as it may seem Washington appears to be
maintaining a stiff-necked attitude on the Russian refusal to
pay its $61 million assessment to the UN for "peace-keeping"
operations. And since the USSR has now been in arrears
more than the requisite two years for punitive action, the US
seems disposed to insist on enforcement of Article 19 of the
Charter which says that members thus delinquent must lose
their vote in the Assembly.
Evidence of this unprecedentedly tough attitude is seen
in our refusal in recent days to give any pledge of support
to the various UN aid programs until the Article 18 hassle
is settled. And considering that the US has been paying 32
percent of the UN's annual $100 million budget and 40 per-
cent of the $150 million budget of its specialized satellite
agencies-and the further fact that the UN is presently $134
million in debt and that Secretary U Thant has asked a $104
million budget for 1965-the global fat-cats of the East River
No-Man's Land await the December 1 convening of the As-
sembly with growing uneasiness.
And this reminds us that the time of the UN opening in
September four years ago, New Yorkers were loudly demand-
ing the removal of this Tower of Babel, this carnival of inter-
national spies and global thugs whose continued existence has
has required outrageously expensive chaperonage by the N.
Y. Police Department, and whose arrogance (with diplomatic
immunity) h4s been a constant affront to the taxpayers.
At that time, the Scripps-Howard papers suggested that
the cost of special police protection might well pay the mov-
ing bill. The N. Y. Times quoted John C. Wiley, State De-
partment veteran of the Moscow and Berlin diplomatic fronts
as saying: "Manhattan is clearly not suitable as a foreign
enclave for a United Nations city," while that torch-bearing
liberal, Doris Fleeson, 'expressed the belief that Congress
would "gladly vote the funds to move the UN to Switzer-
land." Human Events suggested "a neutral island," and said
that William Zeckendorff, Sr., "Mr. Real Estate," had told
them that the UN layout in private hands "would become one
of the most valuable pieces of real estate in the world."
Certainly, if the US was the abused host four years ago,
it has been thoroughly trampled on by now. And, if we are
finally getting tough enough to expect delinquent members
to pay up, it is possible we might also gather up the courage
to take in the "welcome" mat.
IN GOD WE (STILL) TRUST
We think it is about time that our Supreme Court re-
fused to hear some of the .silly, feckless appeals that have
been addressed to it-such as the New York non-sectarian
school prayer case, the invocation of God in a Federal oath
and the Court's intervention to protect innocent children from
subversion by the Lord's Prayer and Bible readings in school-
Furthermore, we hope the Justices are setting a healthy
precedent for themselves in refusing to review the ruling of
New York's State Court of Appeals upholding the inclusion
of the words "under God" in the pledge of allegiance to the
It should be mentioned, however, that the attorneys-
general of 30 out of 50 states had previously filed a brief as
"friends of the court" urging the Justices "not to remove
from our public life every vestige of our religious heritage."
This should be a warning to the Court to look to its own
"A MAJORITY ONCE KNEW THE WORLD WAS FLAT"
The Supreme Court decision holding that all state legis-
latures-the upper as well as the lower houses-must be ap-
portioned solely on the basis of population hit the states like
a bombshell. And it is going to keep on exploding for a long
time to come.
For all of our history, it has been common for the states
to apportion their House of Representatives on a population
basis and their Senates on a geographical basis, such as by
counties. In this they have simply followed the federal sys-
tem, as laid down in the Constitution, in which each member
of the lower house represents about the same number of con-
stituents, while every state is allowed two Senators without
regard to population.
Unless this court decision is negated-and a constitu-
tional amendment, apparently, is the only way to do that-
the big centers of population will almost completely domin-
ate state government, at the expense of the rural areas and
rural people. Their problems and needs, which often are dif-
ferent from those of the cities, will be submerged and their
voices largely stilled. A braking power on the excesses of
numerical majorities will be lost,
The argument for this revolutionary reapportionm-ait is
that the majority should rule. Washington columnist Patrick
Fox had something impressive to say abbut that: "If a sim-
ple majority were always right, there would be no problem
in letting it vote its way immediately on everything.
"But a majority once knew the world was flat. A majority
opposed the American revolution."
