The commonly proposed so- lution js Federal support of education. Now, .^however,, the. Institute af Social Sdeuce Research has issued an exhaustive study which reaches very diff-ej-eat conclusions. It is signed'by Roger Freeman, an acknowledged authority in this field who, , among other things, was consultant on school finance to the White House Conference on Education. A SHORT STORY ABOUT PROTECTION *T jfjere ane some of the points Mr. Freeman makes and substantiates : In terms .of cost, education is the largest public serviae in the country next to national defense. Between 1$2&-3S and 1955-56, personal con- DU yic'contributed\ millions to the \March of Dimes to find a PfegvenS^ sumption expenditures doubled whereas public school expenditures iri- £L ^j 0 r, ara jy y sis The Salk vaccine, developed on a March p? DiftipS Out of Africa comes a story about a cattle rancher who was piafe^. by lions. They raided his corral, broke down his fences and m§m$& with his prize bullocks and heifers. , : } -; '• • v The rancher got himself the most powerful gun he could i'b'yy.', kept it loaded at his bedside. But now, for one reason or an^th^' lions attacked. ' \ v •.'•\.-' After a time, the rancher put his rifle on the shelf.

The rancher suffered fearfuj M^f This story parallels the history of the $alk vaccine. The An^erM** pled. In 1956, we spent $103.94 per capita on education as against VS4.J7 in Russia. In late years, the number of certified teachers has , increased materially more on a percentage basis, tlian the number of j pupils. In those years, in addition, college masors in education have ! increased by S3 percent where majors in ottier fields decreased by 28 percent. The classroom shortage has been- greatly exaggerated and is rapidly decreasing. j Finally, in 1957 teachers' pay, on the average, was 34 percent above the 1929 level; earnings of all workers were S3 percent abow. The study certainly does not claim that everything is perfect in edu- I cation. But it certainly does show that our educational problems have I been magnified out of all reason. There's no need to press any panic j buttons. I ?s for polio paral grant, was the long-sought-for answer. _ But now that we have this weapon, we allpw it to spoil Oft w ^ house shelves. Three out of seven polio-susceptible persons haVe fgjfe,, to get their shots. So alarmed are polio authorities like the INatioinal Foundation for Infantile Paralysis that they warn against hew £$}£ epidemics this summer. . T;\ Nobody else's vaccination — not even your children's will protect YOU. Each person has to get his own. Don't take a chance — *j£j your polio shots.

No one now knows the answer for sure. But this deficiency will be remedied next spring. At that time, the results of a comprehensive census of shareowners will be available. It is being conducted by the New York Stock Exchange, and is de- scribed as the most extensive research project ever undertaken by that long-established institution. Thousands of man and electronic machine hours will be devoted to gathering and analyzing facts. The composi- tion and geographic spread of the stockholding will be made known. So will such facts as the age, occupation, income level and education of the people who own American business. A stockholder census was first made in 1952, and at that time slight- ly less than 6,500,000 people owned shares. A second survey was made in 1956, and showed a 33 percent jump to 8,600,000. The current sur- vey is using highly refined research techniques that provide far greater accuracy than is possible through more conventional methods. One thing is sure — the stockholder population amounts to a very substantia] and growing proportion of the total population. As Keitfa: Funston, president of the Exchange, has said: \This development of'. ; j| People's Capitalism is unique in history. Never before has a majors economic power extended the concept of ownership — so successfully oij'1 so voluntarily — to so broad a base.\ \' % • -**$! WHO PAYS YOUR BILLS?

'Jf A long list of examples could be cited. A typical one is jjajjsi post. It is not a basic postoffice function. It does not advah'ee'fffi| cause of public information and enlightenment, as do other postoffia functions. It is purely a commercial undertaking. It eompetesB- rectly with private, taxpaying parcel carriers 'on a national, regraSl and local scale. And as the Hoover Commission and other authoritafe bodies have pointed out — it operates at a deficit. . . t This simply means that you pay part of the bills for those whoiisf parcel post service. With the prospect of staggering federal deficits, and increased spending, it's pretty hard to find any sound argumefit against increasing parcel post rates to the point where revenues balance the costs, both direct and indirect. COMING OR GOING? The following brief editorial is from the Wall Street Journal: \We were scanning the papers the other day, duly noting the crises that abound, and mulling the words of famous people who keep getting themselves and their countrymen in hot water, when we came across the news that this month marks the 100th anniversary of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. \Further reading of the day's events led us to wish Mr. Darwin was still around so we could ask him just one question: Are we coming or going?\ REDUCE AT HOME MONTY MaeLBVY's-i^^^^l /yaalon-at-home L.~.
