Rosebur? Senior High School will graduate a class of 182
seniors at Commencement exercises tonight.
The entire community feels an intense pride in these fine
young men and women who have completed one phase of
their preparation for places in adult society.
Each student represents an investment of several thou
sands of dollars on the part of the general public. The major
part of every tax dollar goes into our school system, and the
per capita cost of education is mounting steadily and will
continue to increase for at least several more years.
Many taxpayers are inclined to criticize the high cost of
our public school system, but it is pleasing to note that here
in Douglas County no real school need has long been denied.
Voters have been generous in their approval of new school
buildincs. increased salaries, better equipment and generally
improved educational facilities. The many students in our
schools, and particularly those receiving high school di
Dlomas. can accept the generosity of taxpayers as personal
compliments, for such large sums of money would not be
forthcoming if we did not have confidence in our young
people and pride in their achievements.
At the same time, the confidence shown by the public
places a strict responsibility upon all students to utilize
seriously and to the utmost the educational advantages pro
vided for them and to study to take their places in adult
society as citizens, justifying the expenditures made in their
We can have good government only as we have citizens
qualified by education and sense of responsibility to accept
the duties required of each individual in a representative
We stand at political crossroads today. The foundations
of our constitutional government tremble under the on
slaught of Socialism. In the trying days ahead we will need
intelligent men and women, able, through educational prepa
ration, to analyze accurately and, imbued with a determina
tion to discharge every responsibility of citizenship, alert
so that the privileges guaranteed by the Constitution to
every individual shall not be abridged nor that any au
thority rightfully resting in the individual be delegated to
Our government today Is spending billions of dollars to
maintain adequate military power to discourage attack by
enemies from without. We spend, too, huge sums to combat
subversive forces from within attempting to replace our
present form of government with untried and visionary
practices or absolute substitution with foreign ideologies.
In view of the threatened dangers, our greatest hope for
preservation of representative democracy lies in a well edu
cated, well informed, intelligent population.' Every penny
spent for education is far more effective for purposes of
defense than dollars spent for guns and armaments.
But as we train a soldier to identify his enemies and to
use properly the offensive and defensive equipment placed
in his hands, so we must, in our educational system, teach
our students to recognize the enemies of our form of gov
ernment and to utilize educational weapons in their country's
We would urge upon the young men and women graduat
ing today from our high schools, universities and colleges,
and the students being promoted from one grade to another,
to recognize the fact that the diplomas placed in their hands
are but awards of merit for lessons learned in the science
of citizenship; that each promotional certificate and each
diploma is an expression of confidence from a community
of adults who depend upon the recipients of those docu
ments to hold and preserve for the future the heritage
passed down from generation to generation.
We would urge that our young people realize that the
weapons of education are not to be used carelessly, but are
to be used militantly to defend and support their govern
ment and its society.
If this responsibility is faithfully discharged no one
will ever have cause to regret any part of his investment
in our. public school system and in the boys and girls and
young men and women who pass through our educational

Radio Stations Given
Right To Take Sides
WASHINGTON, June 3. OP)
The Federal Communications
Commission Thursday today re
laxed its long-standing rule
against radio stations taking sides
on public questions on th air.
The action was taken in a
new statement of policy with
respect to "editorializing" by
broadcasters, which was forbid
den in a Commission opinion
adopted eight years ago. Four
commissioners joined in the new
policy, one dissented and two
did not take part.
The Commission said Thurs
day that it now believes that
the individual radio station own
er may use his own microphone
to project his own views on con
troversial issues, provided that
he does not use the privilege in
such a way as to give his sta
tion's listeners only one side of
the question under discussion.
