The Sharks, lone loss for the
week, and their fourth of the sea-
son, came at the hands of Bay
High Saturday night in a thriller.
The Sharks started off with a four
point deficit at the end of the first
period and knotted the score at
half time. They slipped three
points in the third period and were
able to make up only one of them
in the final stanza.
High scoring David Langston was
held to only 19 points by Bay High.
Charlie Lewis netted 14, Larry Cox
11 and Ken Haddock 10 in the

On "Look And Guess" Children
For forty years education in this country has been
handicapped by a method of reading education called
"whole-word" method, "look-say" method, picture read-
ing or configuration reading. "Look-and-guess" would
have been a better name. The child has been exposed to
pictures which .he is to associate with words. Actually,
this "modern" innovation constituted a reversion to the
ise -of pictographs of the kind used by primitive man.>
In adopting the system, our educationists threw over-
board the alphabet, invented over 3,000 years ago, and
adopted first by Greece and later by nearly all civilized
Parents' and the public at large were generally un-
aware of this .new word-picture method of primary edu-
cation until the disastrous results were apparent. John-
ny couldn't read. And when he couldn't read, he could-
n't master English nor any of the other subjects being
taught. Reading ability, after all, is the indispensable
requirement for all subjects.
ESx years ago, a group of 250 alarmed educators',
authors, civic leaders and parents formed what they call-
ed the "Reading Reform Foundation." The purpose: to
expose the obvious failure of the look-and-guess method,
and to force the educationists to restore the alphabet to
its proper place as the basis of elementary reading instruc-
tion. The'good news is that they are beginning to win
No less a person than the top man in education in
this country, John Gardner, Secretary of Health, Educa-
tion and Welfare, has gone on record describing as "the
most important book on American education of the past
10 years," a book which has analyzed all the research on
beginning reading and finds: ". the research from
1912 to 1965 indicates that a code-emphasis (the alphabe-
tic) method. produces better results." In other words,
for 40 years, the educationists have been using an inef-
fective method. The fact is that alphabet-trained students
read better, spell better, 'understand better. (The book:
"Learning to Read, the Great Debate" by Jeanne S. Chall,
Professor of Education, Harvard University-McGraw-
Hill, Inc.)' See December's "Reader's Digest" for more
about this book and its -author .
We consider ourselves lucky to have been taught by
the "old-fashioned" method, just before it faded from the
scene. We can still remember, back in Shamrock, Okla-
homa, Miss Ewing and Miss Elsie Haught saying: "This
little mark indicates, a 'short' "e" .. It makes the sound
"eh" and you will find it in such words as 'bed', 'red', etc.
Repeat the sound after me now, "eh", "eh"." And so it
went, through the alphabet. And as -a result, without
an ounce of bragging, we can state that we can read or
spell almost anything, simply because we know what the
letters-particularly the vowels-sound like.
Frantic and frustrated parents need no longer be
afraid to -tackle their local school boards and school ad-
ministrators on the subject of restoring the alphabet me-
thod of teaching beginners to read. If your child, niece,

Employer-employee relations is

men -scratching their fast balding
heads for years and given profit-
able employment to numerous psy-
chologists, consultants and per-

the content and happiness of em-
ployees. As business organizations
grow and expand, employers lose
the close personal contact with
their employees that existed when
they were smaller.
As companies grow, executives
lose contact with the increasing
number of employees, the workers
become numbers rather than indi-
viduals and this loss of personal
contact and interest leads to trou-
ble in the organization. ,

MEN WITHOUT A COUNTRY
When word came that Sweden had granted political
asylum to the four American sailors who deserted the USS
Enterprise, the incident brought to mind a classic story of
yesteryear, "The Man Without A Country". Possibly be-
cause of its "superpatriotism," this tale by Edward Ev-
erett Hale is not as widely read as it used to be, the more's
the pity. Maybe, if it were there would be fewer incidents
like that of the four sailors.
By now everyone knows their story. They jumped
ship at Japan, where "leftists" took them in tow. Under
"leftist" sponsorship they held a press conference at which
they damned this country for its role in Vietnam. They
next surfaced in the Soviet Union where again they pro-
vided grist for the Communist propaganda mill with their
anti-American statements. Following this they turned
up in Sweden where they asked for political asylum, which
Those who have read the tale of Philip Nolan know
how it tells of a young West Point lieutenant who fell un-
der the spell of Aaron Burr in 1807 and was court-mar-
tialed for a role he played in Burr's plot to set up an em-
pire. When, at the close of the trial, he was asked if he
wished to say anything to show he had been faithful to
the United States, he cried out in a way reminiscent of
many modern young Americans:
"Damn the United States! I wish I may never hear
of the United States again!"
The story then tells how he got his wish. Placed on
a succession of naval vessels he never again set foot on
U. S. soil, and for more than half a century all news of
the United States was withheld from him. But in that
time ,his love for the country he had renounced grew
great, as did his remorse for the renunciation' .
That's the old tale. However, we think the case of
the four y
of life in Sweden. They will want to come home, and they'll
get their wish. Here they will not be looked upon as
pariahs or traitors. Rather, throngs of like-minded anti-
Americans will greet them, and their utterances will be
recorded by batteries of TV cameras and by battalions
of reporters. Inevitably, they will be featured on various
What will they say? Will they express feelings of
-remorse as that earlier man without a country did? We
doubt it. That would be a form of superpatriotism, for-
eign to a quartet who scarcely rate as patriots.

No doubt you, too, listened to "Lyndon's Fairy Tales" last Wed-
nesday night. The thing that drew my attention most, was not what
he said, but the size of his ears. We remarked 'to, Frenchie how
large Johnson's ears were and then this past week end, Governor
Kirk's father in Alabama called Johnson 'old flop-ears'. Somebody
else noticed too. It would seem that with ears this big, one could
hear the grumbling going on through the nation opposing most of
the programs Johnson proposed in his speech Wednesday night .
especially those things which call for new and increased spending
by the Government. If he hasn't heard the grassroots grumbling
he should have taken notice of the sparse applause most of his
remarks drew from his audience.
About the only whole-hearted approval received. by Johnson
was in his calling for increased effort to combat crimes Pin our
towns and cities throughout the nation. Laxity of enforcing
laws, we believe, brought about the situation. It will be a sight
harder to curb, now that lawlessness has been allowed to grow
to such proportions ... now that punishment for crime is prac-
The biggest "Fairy Tale" of all was that concerning money-or
rather those instances concerning money, since he made several
points of spending more and trying to take more.
Now, I am no financial wizard. As a matter of fact, I have a
hard time making my own income meet my outgo. We almost de-
clare a dividend around our house when the month and the money
run out at the same time. But it takes no wallet wizard to see the
inconsistencies and shortcomings of Johnson's money programs.
First he called for his now-famous 10% surtax increase again.
He has been told by Congress the increase will be available if the
spending will reflect a decrease. But Mr. Johnson's budget was
even higher than last year. I don't know about you, but an addi-
tional 10% added on my taxes will just about be the straw that
breaks the ant's back. (After taxes, it would take an optimist of
the first water to describe what's left by calling it a camel).
Mr. Johnson called, for removing the gold backing of the dol-
lar, thereby making the entire $12 billions in gold at Fort Knox
available to pay off foreign claims against the dollar. Maybe that's
alright, but would some of you financial wizards explain to this
admitted financial drip, what happens when the $12 billion stock-
pile is all used up in paying off foreign demands? Don't tell me
it won't all be spent. The supply is dwindling now and we see
nothing in Johnson's proposal that will stop the drain. Unless
a stopper is placed in the drain, all of the water will go.
The President wants an additional $2.1 billion to pay for jobs
for 500,000 hard-core unemployed; If we figured this correctly,
this comes to $4,200 per man, including administration costs. If
the government hadn't messed with the guaranteed wage limits,
these people would have been employed long ago by industry and
business which can't afford to pay the present day price for their
talents. Also, most of these people can take home more money
than this or at least, nearly this much, by welfare payments. Why
work for what is given them? These people aren't out of work
because there are no jobs. Well-meaning Government and its bene-
volent programs have priced them out of the job market.
The President said that the administration was still study-
ing Vietnam's call for a halt in bombing of North Vietnam as a
price tag for peace talks. They can stop thinking now Ho
Chi Minh removed his offer this past week end. But, even so, we
could never agree to a halt in any phase of the fighting, unless
the halt was applicable to both sides. If there is a lull in the fight-
ing or a halt in any phase, it should be honored by both sides.
The United States shouldn't be requested to halt is pursuance
of the war in any manner, unless North Vietnam offers to do
likewise. When this agreement is reached, we can be assured
that North Vietnam is interested in peace and not some
form of chicanery.
Lyndon called for the approval of a budget which would re-
quire $186 billion to finance and then it would be $8 billion
in the red. That's a lot of zeroes. We can't even imagine that
there's that much money in the world. There must be though.

It is important to note that only
earnings should be shown on the
report. Such things as rental in-
come, dividefids from investments,
and interest from savings are not
considered earnings. Starting in

$1680 before his Social Security

The deadline for filing the an-

Unlike an old friend, you cannot rely upon an old prescrip-
fton to do a thorough Job... especially the same one for
which it was originally Intended. Drugs lose their potency
over a number of years and some Increase in strength
through evaporation. Not only might a drug prove ineffec-
tive but It may be dangerous as well. Adverse storage condi-
tions could also affect the prescription. Chemical changes
can occur within the liquid, capsule or tablet. Then, too,
there is the constant danger of a child reaching for an old
prescription. ThinRing it's candy... or simply imitating you
... he might swallow the contents. The results may be tragic.

doctor re-prescribe for your present condition... after all
