Magazine recently published an article entitled "Why McGuffey's Reader Can't Be Used Today." It hit at the heart of the reason why American education is in deep trouble at all levels. Ever since the "progressive education" theories of John Dewey and disciples took hold there has been a gradual "editing out" of the textbooks of the Judeo-Christian valse system presented in the McGuffey Reader. Instead the books are filled with the humanist theories of moral relativism. Educational Research Analysts Newsletter reports that in 1940 the top offenses in public schools were: talking, chewing gum, making noise, running in the balls, getting out of turn in line and not putting paper in the wastebaskets. Today the newsletter reports the top offenses in public schools are rape, robbery, assault, burglary, arson, murder, suicide, absenteeism, vandalism, extortion, drug abuse, gang warfare, pregnancies, abortions and veneral disease. The problems in our small town school systems are not as serious as those reported in the newsletter. But today's problems are more serious than were those of four decades ago. A return of the Judeo-Christian value system would have a positive influence on the current problems in all school systems. e are a never ending subject of discussion, considerably higher levies to provide relatively the they always have been. _ same level of education.

It would also mean that property taxes would get another hint of relief. Regardless of the methods of taxation, it is im- portant that citizens keep a handle on spending.

At the very least, it is assumed that thievery belongs to the big cities and other population centers, but not the small town in the midwest. However, apparently that assumption is not so valid after all. Saturday a sale sponored by the Lions Club.-, was held at the Superior City auditorium. A certain party bought, or so he thought, a citizens band walkie-talkie radio and a magnetic mount antenna but when it came time to settle accounts, the walkie-talkie was found to have developed legs and walked off. It turned out to be a rather expensive antenna buy for the purchaser. It is too bad, but it would appear that the problems of the big city are not just the problems of metropolitan areas but are beginning to make their way into the small towns where historically it has been considered safe to leave cars unlocked and maybe even the key in the ignition.
