' = Death Penalty Under Fire The current of history has for many years been running strongly against capital punishment. The VieW that execution is ineffective, as well as inhumane and barbaric, is steadily rising among civilized men everywhere. Seventy- three nations have outlawed the death penalty. In this coun- ry, though capital punishment is still legal in 37 states, the number of executions have been markedly on the wane. In 1935 there were 200; in 1966, only one. This springs from tacit • recognition that legalized murder has no place in a society which sets a high value on human life This survival of primitive times should be rooled out. The example of the 13 states which have abolished capital punishment should be followed without further delay by the idtner 37. And Congress ough to give this move some impetus by acting at once to abolish the death penalty for federal crimes. ... .1 " . ' ' . It is noteworthy that members of Congress from Minnesota, which in 1911 became one of the first few states to thr.ow out lie death penalty, are taking the lead for action at the federal level. Rep. Donald M. Eraser of Minnesota and! 22 colleagues have introduced a bill to ban executions for, federal crimes. Minnesota Senators McCarthy and Mbndale1 ai'e among, sponsors of such a bill in the Senate. . ( 'There is no longer any reason for protracted debate on this proposal. The notion that the death penalty is a deterrent to, crime is Uie last remaining shred of argument in its favor, but "as Eraser notes' "studies have shown that contrary to what wits once thought, the. threat of execution does hot rdeter. crime." - This is . supported . by FBI figures showing -hat between 1930 and 1965 the. lowest murder rates were in states Which have abolished the death penalty, It is high time for the United States to join the 73 other nations in, abandoning this barbaric punishment. It has been known that Council has been working for some time on a site selection, has discussed architectural plans, and that oomniittees have visited City buildings in other areas to obtain ideas. ' Also announced was another meeting change. The regular Dec. 11 session will be held as scheduled, but the Dec. 25 meeting has been moved to Dec. 18. In other business, Cotuncil: PASSSfcD second reading of an ordinance to accept the annexation'.df' approximately'172 acres to the northwest section of the city. It is known as the Wood- row area. Schiltz said he received a question from a property owner near Applegrove Rd. who asked if his land could be deleted from the annexation. Robert Mylett, director of law, said legally Council cannot modify the ordinance, but must either accept or reject the annexation proposal as it stands. APPROVED final reading of an brdinarice to establish a Department of Permits and Inspection to issue all licenses except those for bicycles. These would include plumbing, electrical and concrete 'contractors, taxis, magazine salesman, and rubbish haulers.

Dick passed his flight test with FA A examiner Walt Shuey at Wooster recently. The Now' Generation Whoever dubbed today's youth the "now" generation hit the nail ,>on. .he head. It is an apt description of the young adults so vigorously rocking the status quo. What has not been sufficiently noted us that this impatience to change things, this so-called "now" approach of life, is not unique in our time.' "' Today's young are "more numerous than in preceding generations, and more noisy. The wearying effect of this is felt around, tlie.world. .Yet-basically they differ little from the younf "wTib 'have marched through time before them. They want more' than most older people think they should have, and sooner than they should have it. Tliey want freedom from old rules. They want to shock their elders. They want to grow up fast—and so did Grandma and Grandpa when they were tha. age. If the. "now" generation differs from those that preceded it, perhaps the difference lies in the seriousness of some of its goals. It wants social jus'ice now, integration now, involvement in a cause now, truth now, peace now. It wants tc* help the poor around the world," and to put out the fires of intolerance whei'ever they are found. If it does not see its own intoJerapge~afe tinges,.thi^s.is,.tha note in ihe eye of youth that one hopes the years will remove. The "now" generation will bei in charge iof the world in another 20 years or so. The transition will be smoothed if those making today's decisions can reoognize what is good iiS the rising tide; of youth—now. HI-LOWS TO PERFORM.
