-THl£-WEEKS POLE / Charter Day i October 4 was a red-letter day in every rural community. It was Rural School-Charter Day—the day when schools and community groups take .stock of the education system and make pl^ns for improvement. i October\4 was the second anniversary of-the White House Conference on Rural Education when more than 200 leaders from every'*state and representing every phase of rural life met for three days to study the pressing problems of the public schools ior rural children and youth. During the Conference, the late President Roosevelt-said: - "In three generations 80 percent of the total population will be direct descendants of those now living on farms in the United States. Thus, many of those who will be the leaders and citizens.of our nation will be given their understanding and appreciation of democracy in educational institutions in rural areas. "Many of the best and most of the poorest schools in the nation are found in ;our rural areas. When, however, rural schools are compared1, with urban schools as a class it is an inescapable conclusion "that millions or rural children are seriously handicapped in the educational opportunities available to them." It was following this Conference. A the President's speech that the Charter of Education X Rural Children was adopted. Such a- charter can remain just a collection of nice-sounding words, or it can be a goal on the horizon. But it can also be the standard of educational opportunity for every rural child. ; ' <iVbe".stlch 'a standard, which should "be the birthright of every child, there must be a determined action..program in every.community. The school board can do a part. It can fight for more money for the school program so that the teachers will be better qualified and better paid, buildings will be better equipped, and the educational, program broad enough to meet the needs of "the children in a democracy. .But it takes more than a determined and enlightened f schoolboard. Every citizen, whether he is a parent or not, must resolve to work for the betterment of his school so that every child will be a contributing citizen in our democracy, regardless of the part of the nation in which he went to school.-Every citizen should contribute his effort to make the school the center of the community and HIS school. Charter Day is merely one day to focus attention on the schools but it should serve to stimulate continuous action to improve education.

Phalanx Fraternity To Present Speaks On Marriage Harass?, LEE SCOTT BURIED SUNDAY, OCTOBER 6 Ralph Young Manager of Citizens Died October 4 Simple Precautions Simple precautions against the possibility of fire save lives and property from destruction — precautions which are so simple they may seem actually unnecessary.-But The Nation- ral Board of Fire Underwriters emphasizes the*.inip6rtance of such measures it its untiring effort to cut down fire loss. It recognizes that the most effective force in fighting fire is a sincere desire on the part of the public to cooperate in- eliminating every possible fire;hazard. Some of the simple precautions that depend on each individual are: Proper insulation around stoves; the use of fuses instead of pennies in the fuse box; closing of doors and windows to shut off possible drafts when leaving a dwelling; safeguarding fires left in houses against spreading to, curtains, furniture and inflammable fixtures; destroying refuse which, is a potential producer of instantaneous combustion; placing electric irons on something metallic instead of on the cloth ironing board. These and countless other safety measures depend upon individual action. Such safeguard are indispensable if we are to reduce the tremendous annual fire loss suffered by. this country. The great proportion of fires results from failure to adhere to the simplest precautions. Thousand's of lives are lost and millions of dollars worth of property is destroyed every year because of individual negligence or laziness in cooperating to prevent fire. Simple precautions may save any one of us from being the victim of fire. Why shirk a duty that takes so. little time and may prevent untold loss and suffering? f Amateur Financiers .The New York Stock Exchange is dancing jigs in market; prices. There's a lot of lazy and crazy money nowadays and some of the people who are throwing it away.might do worse than to' buy a few shares of stock. Many stocks will remain. good, while more issues will slump, and stay down. A dozen years ago most people came out of the stock markets acknowledging that they were not <t>nly amateurs, but foolish adventurers. Those people who are still alive learned their lessons in the amateur field, and without any attempt to smear the stock market they are almost unanimous in believing that you can't make easy money that way unless you know how; Who knows how?
