[[Page Left]] What the People Say By Paul Gouldy Is General DeGaulle's resignation good or bad for France? [[image: 4 people]] [[caption]] Miss Debra Banner RD 3 Dillsburg Iceland Products "I feel he is getting old, and maybe a little feeble. He may be too old to be president. It may be good for France to get some young fresh blood in high political office." Ed Grant Hills Mobile Homes Mechanicsburg, Student "I think it will be good for France. He is too old. He can't understand what the young people want. There is too wide a generation gap. I think he overlooks the reasons for all the student unrest." Miss Joy Mixell RD 1 Newville Student "I feel France will decline because she isn't big enough to stand alone without DeGaulle. I think his resignation will be bad for France." Albertas Darr RD 1 Dillsburg Reading R.R. "I really don't know. DeGaulle has done a lot of good for France. If they don't get a replacement France will miss DeGaulle."

Buck, Penn State extension foods and nutrition specialist. Our society, with an economy of plenty but a lack of physical activity, sets the stage in many cases of overweight. At each stage of the life cycle, persons need to learn and practice a way of life that will keep them within their ideal weight range. **** Personality: The name we give to our little collection of funny habits. -Unknown **** All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today. -Chinese Proberb [[image: illustration of boy holding newspaper]] P.J.'s Paperboy Jokes "I wish I had enough money to buy an elephant."

[[/column]] [[headline/bold]] Coraloc and Penn-Aquatic Service in area location [[/headline/bold]] Coraloc Swimming Pools, a subsidiary of Penn-Aquatic Service, 701 E. Locust ST., Mechanicsburg, has been appointed to conduct surveys and design drawings for the Swimming Facilities at the Swiss Embassy in Washington, D.C. Construction will commence in about thirty days. Coraloc is rapidly gaining recognition and acceptance of their Stainless Steel Product. American Realty Service Corp., Memphis, Tenn. is presently using Coraloc exclusively for installation of their swimming facilities. Three complexes have been designed and constructed by Coraloc; one for Lake Meade, Inc., East Berlin, was awarded national acclaim fro design excellence. Construction is about to commence for three large commercial projects, namely for American Legion Post 914, Lemoyne, Guilford Swim Club, Inc., Chambersburg, and Charnita, Inc., Fairfield. Several others are now in the engineering stage. Two new approaches are now underway for swimming pool applications. The first was introduced in Pennsylvania Farmer, April 26, issue offering a concept combining water conservation and recreation. This multi-purpose reservoir will retain water for fire protection in rural areas beyond improved protected areas, stock watering, emergency water supply and can be used for family swimming. We are presently requesting the state and federal governments to share expenses with qualified farmers for this facility. Secondly, the concept of neighborhood swimming facilities being provided in developments in London, England have adopted this type program with great success. Penn-Aquatic Service has designed a program to organize, finance, construct and maintain such facilities for a three year period after which the complex will be assigned to the local community or association. Coraloc and Penn-Aquatic Service, including a new retail store, has been open at their new location 701 E. Locust St., Mechanicsburg, since April 11. The public is invited. ----------- [[page center-right]] [[headline]] EDITORIAL [[italicize]]Freedom of, or freedom from religion? [/headline]][[/italicize]] The controversy over school prayers is catching fire again in Pennsylvania. There has been an under-current of dissatisfaction among the "grass-roots" people of our commonwealth, and many other sections of the country, ever since the Supreme Court banned school prayers several years ago. In the past few days, however, there is growing evidence that the general populace has had enough from that panel of "men in black" who have apparently agreed with the contention of one woman who believes in rule by the minority. Four public school districts in Pennsylvania comprising 18,000 children have openly rebelled. Many Representatives in the State House are allegedly beginning to support the wishes of the people. A strong drive is growing to restore Bible reading and prayer to its former place in the public school program. Of course, in an issue of this nature, there are many emotions involved. I know that there are two sides to every coin. The school prayer issue is no exception. There is skillful reasoning both for and against giving our children five minutes of Christian devotion each morning. For several reasons, however, I think the people desiring a restoration of Bible reading and prayer in our schools are right. It has been said that the high court's ban on school prayer has helped maintain the separation of church and state. However, the constitution of the US maintains there shall be freedom of religion. The Supreme Court ban has imposed upon us freedom from religion. A child has a right not to pray but this should not deter another child of his right to do it. Therefore, let the majority rule with freedom for all. Let those who desire not to participate step outside the classroom while those pray who desire to. Another point maintained by some of our wise sages, including representatives of some Councils of Churches, is that a child is not made a better Christian by listening to devotions for five minutes. I question this! More influence flows into the subconscious in a short listening period than might be imagined. I remember clearly, from my childhood, the devotions we had at the beginning of each day in school. It is sad that even some [[column]] representatives of the Church do not think our nation should acknowledge God. Senator Everett Dirksen was right when he said that if the National Council of Churches was as interested in saving souls as it seems to be in placating one atheist their work would have a lot more to say for itself. Those against school devotions say that the public school should not take the place of home and church as a religious training ground. That is certainly true! However, when Bible reading and prayer is maintained in the public school, it is a testimonial that our national leadership in education recognizes the Supreme Being. This is far more important than recognizing the Supreme Court. The high court ban has opened the floodgate for defiance and disrespect for the things that made our nation strong. In this day of demonstrations against good things, we can also demonstrate for good things. The Supreme Court is supposed to interpret law. Instead, it has begun to impose a liberal ideology. It is time to protest! Like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, whose ancient protest demonstration restored their nation to God, so Christians should do the same today. The mood of the nation is not that of the nation's highest court on the issue at hand. If the people could go to the polls and vote on this issue, the outcome would be a landslide in favor of education's public recognition of God. So, er are beginning to see a protest demonstration for spiritual values which will be well worth watching. The people, who are the true representation of the state, have had enough. It is time, they are saying, to choose between the faith of our fathers and the opinions of a few liberal justices. There is great indication that the people have begun to make that choice.
