| Dear Three Ps:
£ . I joined the army I had
■ only finished my second year in
high school. Since my discharge
J Uhave found a steady job which
I may have some future. However,
1 l read so much about education
J :n the newspapers Ido not know
j what to do, as I do not have
I enough money to see me through
' ’'tfie last two years of high school
■'jthd I am so much older now.
What do you advise?
You have two handicaps as well
as two real challenges. One that
you have had any high school at
all; the other that in this land
of strict conformity, employers as
well as the government require
high school education. However,
as mentioned above you have two
challenges to spur you on to prove
everybody is wrong in general.
First, that you have a desire to
go on, second that you have the
will to do something about it.
In this country high school and
college have become a social ne
cessity, regardless of the aptitudes
and abilities of people. Re/.em
ber that education is nothing else
but the past experience of others,
which enterprising people have
put into books; others use these
books to spout it out to would-be
spouters and that is how educa
tion is passed on from generation
tb generation. However, the
original thinkers did not have the

benefit of high school and col-j
lege education. Read Hutchins,?
of Northwestern and Conant of |
Harvard on education. They do
not put it as crudely as 1 do for |
they are more learned and eX- (
perienced. Today elaborate high.
' school buildings are being built!
! all over the country and are be-|
i ing called “Country Clubs for
Juveniles”; they are putting a
great burden on the taxpayer.
There is a great deal of propa
ganda today about education —and
most propaganda has its own self
ish motive. Read Reader’s Digest
for October about the small town
in New England that is on the
l verge of bankruptcy as the re
i suit of building a country club
! high school where it was not
. needed; also in the same issue
read the article “The Mess in Ed
ucation”. Andrew Johnson, a
great president, did not learn how
to read and write until he was
about twenty; think of Abraham
Lincoln, who created his own edu
cation and left behind a wonder
ful philosophy of wit and humour;
how about Eli Whitney and the
cotton gin; Robert Fulton and the
steam boat; Thomas Edison, who
acquired his education selling pa
pers on the train and hanging
around the telegraph office at the
railroad station and as a result
we have light, heat and power to
day. Then how about Henry
Ford, I do not recall that he had
a degree from MIT, but we had
the model “T”, better public roads
and transportation today because
of Henry. No, real education is
experience plus curiosity. You
know the definition of a college
graduate as one who has been
able to hang on long enough to
i attend the Junior and Senior
Proms; has acquired a fraternity
f pin and class ring so large it
, should be worn around the neck
: instead of on thf finger; he has
; taken a girl or girls out in the
i rose arbor a number of times,
has acquired a Bastard of Arts
Degree and then thinks the world
owes him a living. Os course, this
is not true of all college men, but

[imagination, some curiosity and
energy, tb* world is you* oyster

j want. So go to it.
Dear Three P’s:
When I was discharged from the
army I met a widow with a son
four years old. We became inter- t
ested in each other and married
and I forgot all of my high school
girl friends. We lived outside of
town in a house I was able to buy.
I was and still am very much in
love with my wife, and I treat her
son as my own. She used to get
up and have my breakfast ready
for me as I had to drive twenty
five miles to my job. The house
was always neat and clean. How
ever, several years ago my wife
stopped getting my breakfast, so
I had to get my own; then she
bought more clothes than she
needed or could wear for herself
and son; then she said she want
ed to move closer in town; so we
rented a house. Then without
warning she told me to get out of
the house she was no longer inter
ested in me and she took up with
another man. 1 am still in love
with my wife, but she will not
pay any attention to me and left
me with a lot of debts. Do you j
have any suggestion. j
Philip W. C.
Reading between the lines of
your letter I have concluded that
you did not want a wife but a
“momma”. You did not mention
it, but I bet she asked you to pre
pare her breakfast and take it up
to her in bed. She bought more
clothes than she needed and prob
ably did other things to annoy
you. Subconsciously she was test
ing you as a man and did not get
any reaction except some meek
protests. My advice to you is to
forget her. Then look over some
of your old high school sweet
■ hearts who are not married and
make your choice. When you
have picked her out you. jusj go
up to her and say “Honey, I am
going to marry you.” Then see
a lawyer and find out the quick
est way to get a divorce, and go|
to Florida or Reno, if necessary, |
but get it fast and marry the girl)
you have picked out. Then if
your new wife tries out the same
tricks, then know she is testing
you out as a man. Look at your
self in the mirror and see if you
have any hair op your chrCft; if
she persists, just take hold of her,
lay her across your lap and give
her back side a good slapping,
hard enough to leave a few welts
on either cheek of the gluteous
maximum. Then , I assure you
you will live happily ever after
ward, as they say in the books
Good luck to you.
Knowledge and human power
are synonomous, since the ig
norance of the cause frustrates I
I the effect.

1 score of 13-7. The Aces, near
the end of the first period, scored
to lead 7-0, but the Indians tied
it up 7-7 early in the third period-
The Aces won the game about a
minute from the end. of the game
when Fred Britton grabbed a pass j
from Lassiter, got away from a
tackier and raced for the winning
touchdown. Robert White scored
the first touchdown when he
wiggled away from several tack
lers about 11 yards from pay dirt. 1
The Aces are expecting a hard,
fight with Ahoskie Friday night, j
