Judge faces suspension (Continued from Page IA) The co,uission said the use of the word '*nigger" was "insen- sitive, injudicious and demon- strafed an absence of active awareness of and concern for the sensitivity of African-American people." In an incident in Saline County District Court, Coady lectured a man who wasn't making child support payments. The man had said he quit work because of a disagreement with a supervisor. Coady told him, "You're in such a situation that if somebody insults you, you just go on and do it and take it. You know, black people have done it for years, and you are at the place where I suppose that you can be treated like a nigger, and you just have to take it just like the black people have had to." The commission's report said the issue is not whether Coady is racist or had an inadvertent slip of the tongue because public con- fidence in a speaker can be dam- aged by inappropriate public lan- guag.e even ff the speaker's in- tent m pure. How did we 9 learn habits. By Mel Rhcads Did you ever, while relaxing in your favorite chair, ponder such things as who invented the paper clip, the safety pin, a flashlight battery or a pair of scissors? Along the same line, I was trying to relax, without much success, when I got to won- dering: How did we ever learn to do certain things? How did we ever learn to: Use the wheel? Lick our fingers to turn a page? Wink? Scratch an itch? Eat an olive: Now that's one that took courage but, probably not as much as: Eating Limburger Cheese? How did we learn to: Make sugar out of nearly everything? Use money? Eat meat? Is it true, some chinaman burned his barn and a pig to learn to cook meat? I not only wonder how we learned, but why we learned to?: Smoke tobacco? ,?,at frog legs? Suck a lemon? Pickle cucumbers? Some other rather dubious bub we learfied to do: Chew gum. Eat luteflsk. Pickle herring, but am I ever ad some obviously intelligent Swede learned to do this, for I truly enjoy pickled herringl What ever possessed the first daring parson to: Eat a tomato. Ride a horse. Use a flag of truce. Build a boat. Milk a cow. Doesn't it seem peculiar that, at one time, in our ancient history, some character crawled up a tree and threw down a coconut, spent days trying to shave the hair off, crack the shell, then had the stupidity to try the coconut milk and eat the meat? I'm sorta glad about most, sorry about some and hope people are still stupid-brave- courageons-inquisitive enough to continue what we call progress I Reading gives us breadth, but study gives us depth.

Business owner's son shares of Burr Oak booming in the early By Gloria Garman Through two world wars and the Korean Con- flict, from black buuoned-up shoes, to colorful pumps, the Canfield Shoe Store saw lots of changes. The Canfield Shoe Store, Burr Oak, opened it's doors about 1904 and stayed in business until 1959. For more than 50 years the store served the commu- nity with the same owner-salesman. Richard Canfield, Burr Oak, son of the long- time owner, Adelbert Canfield, recently shared some memories, "Father aod his brother opened the store on the west side of main street. It was located where the bank building is pres- ently located." Canfield Bros. Shoe Store had lots of competi- tion and company in its' be- ginning days. Richard said, "In the early 1900s, Burr Oak was a boom town. The population exceeded 500 people and there were lots of businesses in Burr Oak." According to the adver- tising in the 1909 Burr Oak Herald papers, there were two banks. The Jewell County National Bank an- nounced a capital of $100,000. The Burr Oak State Bank charged 6 percent interest on loans. The White Hardware Company advertised high- grade sewing machines for $23.45, a six-hole range for $26.39, and sandwich hand shellers for $6.50. Tegley also had a hardware store. T.S. Mendehall was a jeweler and optician, H. A. Modlin could fix carriages and wagons, and C.H. Morris owned a livery barn. The latest in 1909 building materials could be bought at the Chicago Lumber and Coal Co. or from F.E. Burke. Other business advertised in the 1909 Burr Oak Herald included G.W. Howard, woodWorker, Burr Oak Furniture Co., Fearing Model Studio, W.E. Jones Insurance, Burr Oak Shoe Store, Miller Cash Store, Carhill Grocery, McCammon-Shores Re- alty Co., Lynn & Co. Drug Store, Smith Clothing, and Modlin's Millinery Store. Convis Merchantile Co. sold men's shoes for $3.68 and $9.98 bought a man's suit. Green Grocery sold canned peaches for 25 and canned corn was 3 for 25. Burr Oak had three medical doctors, Hawley, Kirk and Skinners, and a dentist, W.L. McCormick. Olney Music Company sold each.

During the late 1930s Richard population was shifting to the cities. He shared, "I decided to go to college and not go into my business." Adelbert Canfield died in 1968 after closing the store.
