REPRODUCTION, DISSEMINATION, STORAGE, DISTRIBUTION PROHIBITED, PAGE 6 THE FLORALA NEWS " THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1~ coo 200 Years Ago Today The pioneers and the Indians were really at it hot and heavy. Chief Edward Jack's son was chief of the Blackfoot tribe. Princess Patricia Running Brook was the leading squaw of the tribe. Craig Hutcheson was the leader of the pioneers and his wife Angelia Hutcheson was his help meet. On this day there became a disturbance of who will get the first pull of the peace pipe, Chief Edward or Mr. Hutcheson. Mr. Hutcheson called on his four main scouts Gauis, Ricky, David and Victor. While Chief Edward called in his four most feared, skilled warriors Johnny Albert, Jeffery, Cornell and Arthur. When the ladies saw the fighting, they were very dis- turbed. The meeting was simply called to achieve a peace settle- ment. The ladies being of sound mind and weak body, began scheming. Princess Pat- ricia Running Brook and Mrs. Hutcheson decided to pull a good one on them. Mrs. Hutcheson ran out back, caught Craig's horses, grabbed his ropes, and between the combined efforts of the pioneer women and squaws all the men were roped and tied within 45 minutes. So that's the way it was 200 years ago today. Drama Club News SENIOR SPOTLIGHT Amelia Hughes Worley The Senior holding the spot- light is the fantastically hand- some Mike Hughes.

YOU WANT A STRANGER TO LIVE IN YOUR TR AIN YOUR CHILD? THEN PLEASE ACT IMMEDIATELY: THE CHILD AND FAMILY SERVICE ACT OF 1975, HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES BILL HB 2966, SE- NATE S 626: CHILD ADVOCACY CLAUSE. This act contains the following items (page 44138 of the Congressional record). I. All children have the right of protections from and compensation for any inadequacies in their home and backgrounds. Z. Children have the right to protection from any excessive claims made on them by their parents or au- thority. (An example of "excessive claims" is : If a pa- rent asked a child to take the garbage out and the child didn't want to, tlien the parents have no right to insist upon it.) 3. Children have the right to freedom from religious or political indoctrination. (This means parents could not insist on children attending church or Sunday School. It also means children could report their parents to authorities for expressing himself in his own home and before his own children regarding politics and religion.) 4. Children shall have the freedom to make com- plaints about teachers, parents, and others without fear of reprisals. The Congressional Record bill is described: "If, the judgement of those who are in charge of such a pro- gram, The State by way of the Secretary of Health, Edu- cation and Welfare, parents aren't doing a good job, the advocate, (a specialist appointed by the government) would enter the home and direct the education, even within the home. And if the parent would object, the authority of the home would, De Facto~ be transferred to these advocated." In 1971, this bill nassed both houses and was vetoed by President Nixon. ;l'he record also states: "The intent of this bill is for the government to be responsible.., for the nutritional interests of your child, and for all pscy- cological interests of your child. What is at issue is whether the parent shall continue to have the right to form the character of the children or whether the State with all its magnitude, shall be given the decisive tools and tecyniques for forming the young lives of the child- ren of this country. As a matter of the child's right, Government shall exert control over the family because we have recogm- zed that the child is not the care of the parents, but the care of the state. We recognize, luther, that not paren- tal, but communal forms of upbringing have an unques- tionable superiority over all other forms. Futhermore, there is serious question that maybe we cannot trust the family to prepare young children in this country for this new kind of work which is emerging."
