2 - The Sidney Herald, Sidney, Mont., Wednesday, January 20, 1971  %, ;'  ,  , =- Opinions = THE GOOD LIFE You have only to spend a little time on a farm or live in a rural community to know-it's really the good life. Once you've walked the fields and forests, scanned the hills and valleys, watched and felt the billowing tI" tile wind wer fields of golden grain, thrilled to the sight ,7t the flash of light as a gleaming fish breaks a tranquil surface of water, or had your heart soar with the flight of wild birds in a cloud-studded sky it's then that you feel the closeness of God's earth and it's relationship to man and yott will carry it with you wherever you go and as long as you live. For these reasons alone we are somewhat mystified as to why statistics from last year's census indicate that most small towm, with few exceptions, do not reflect the population increase shown by the large city areas. The number of farmers is dwindling, when !'arm products are needed in ever-increasing quantities. In New York City alone it takes an equivalent of 16, cars of food daily to keep it's population going. True, mechanization on the farm has played a big part, and the city does have some things to offer; but today there are many who question whether the Big City doesn't take away much more than it gives. We were recently told of two brothers who left their rural boyhood town to seek their fortune in a large metropolis. One found that it wasn't for him, and returned to become the editor of his home town paper His brother, on the other hand, stayed on tot the "security" offered by the city-just living for that 20 year retirement plan. He didn't make it. A heart attack caught up to him first. And we've been told of another who left a high salaried post at the old New York Herald Tribune for a job paying far less, in the small, community he t is now living in; but at the end of each year he has a lot more m the bank than he ever managed to save in New York, and he is happier and healthier than he's ever been before .... It may be that city life' has been oversold, while country life has been undersold. Granted, it may take a bit of doing to convince some of our youth that for the good life, they'd best stay away from those asphalt jungles. But if we tell it to them enough times, maybe they will come to agree that it's true. $ $ $ $ $ $ We've read all sorts of reasons for school courses in "driver education" but one that tops all appeared in the London 7hues Educational Supplement. A correspondent wrote that it was unfortunate that a Stoke.on.Trent school committee had turned down a plan to let 15-year-dials learn to drive. Reason: "Surely if a youngster is going to steal a car it is much better for the car and the other road users that the child be able to drive properly."

I was favorably impressed with Mr. Estelle's presentation, I thought he gave considerable amount of food for thought. For instance, why does the State spend a sizable amount of mon- ey annually for upkeep and main- tenance of an institution that is aa out of date as or prison7 Or why there are two Insfl- tutions, a prison in Deer Lodge and a Prison Ranch out of Deer Loe? Mr. Estelle reported that the Federal Government would pay $3 million dollars o a $4 mlio lion dollar one unit prismt for the State of Moraana to be POS- sibly located ne_m. the present Prison Ranch.

"A b/rd with aeroohed neck," was the reply. "Well, what is crocked?" asked the blind man. Losi his patience, Einstein grabbed the man's arm and straightened it, "that Is straight." Then he bent it at the elbow, "That IS crooked," FAnatein.emphasized. "Oh,. now I know what you mean by milk," said histriend. "Do you still want to know what relativity Is about'?" ask- ed Einstein. By JUDY ZIEGLER TIPS FOR NEW BABYSI'rTERS I  out bltbysittingwhen I was aleut 11 or 12 years old t I am now 16 and luwe baby sa for nmr different families, therefore, I have had experience with many types of kids, rang- fasts are organized  theMon- tana Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by the individual ehemhers from round tana. The breakfasts have tWp purposes: 1. Toprovide the Leg. ialaters certain basic facts and information; data eoocervdrg Montana's economy and de- velopment needa. 2. To provide local Chamber blembers an op- porttml to mahe aa'poaeful visit to Helena dmdng the ses- sion to observe the legialative process and to contact Legisla- tors for their area. A chamber Memherswish- lng to go to Helena that date should contact me at the Cham bet olee as soon as possible. ANNUAL BANQUET All Chamber Members are reminded that the Alutlal Ball- quet will be PrMW eve, Jan. 29, at 7:30 p.m. at the La- lole Hotel. Tieketa will be mailed this week to all Chain- her Members. I would like to Personally invite all members to the Ban- quet to hear the Honorable James T Harrison Chief Jus- lice ot the Montana Supreme Courk Chief Justice Harrison Is reported to be a very good speaker, so make plans now to attend on January 29. ,r lO.U LO 0 l-O,s ing in age from three months to 10 years. I do not know if tiffs qualifies me as an expert in the field or not, but, neverthe- less, I am going to offer some helpful lnts for beginning sit- ters.  ', a ariss wh the sitter .t malowlthau of her sehonl books o stuay for the next d, and her four-year- old ehsr m her to Plw "trncks." The sitter should quickly expl_n to the child that there .are creatures called teachers who are ready to pounce  her if she doesn't get all her hemewk dot. Of course the  wiLl feel sorry for his sitter (in ,most asel that is)and go pIY by himself or watch television. If thisdons not work, the sitter can either read her hlstery while plwlng "tracks" or send the kid to bed two hours early. (They usually cannot toll time at four years of age). 2. "Please let us stay upuntil the next commercial." This is a llne each sitlr m hem" quite often by kids who sudd become very ,'e grouod" in a TV prngram five minutes befe bedtime. Naturally, theY have no idea about what is haUpelg on the tube because they had been fight- Ing all  The sitter lan soon realizes that there never comes a ,,next eomnlerelal." The poor girl tries everything to get the kids off to bed, She tries reason, yelling and brib- ing. If none of these things work, then the only thing the sitter can do is execute the full power In- vested in her by most parents and clobber the kids. (This should do it everyflme, but the sitter should not be surprised if she is not hired again). 3. Advice ondliq)ering ablday. A glrl ngrees to take care of a seven - month old baby for the first time ever. The only experi- ence she has ever had with dia- pers is with her 'Betsy Wetsy' doll she had when she was six- years old. While she is in charge, the thing that she pray- ed and prayed would never hap- pen does indeed happen-- the baby messes Ms diapers. The sitter has two choices in this case - she can pretend she doesn't notice anything andwait for the mother to come home or else gallantly try to charge the baby's diapers. If she choos- es the latter (and I wouldn't recommend the former) she needs to proceed in a systemat- ic manner. First the poor glrl has to collect the materials: a clean diaper or two, rubber pants, about five wet wash cloths and a pail. Next, she should lay the baby on a bed, the floor or whatever and take out the pins. Next she opens the diaper, clos- es her eyes and begins to clean the baby's bottomwith a wash cloth. She Is of course pr|ying all the time that the parents soddjlnly Come home. Oh yes- the Pall is used only if there Is uncontroUable gl!- sitter, not the baby. If she is fuel, this whole newexperi- ence should take the tmexperi- enced sitter no nude than 15 minutes to complete. Of course. I could not cover everything in this essay, but I hope everyone who rends it realtge that experience is the best teaeher.

Cummings In this ponm, Ctmmalrsuses 'tWO pronotms--" "athene" and "" - as the names of two peopl. The town where AWone lived was one where the people didn't care for any other per- sons beside themselves. The clflldren, who were more sensi- tive and perceptive than the adults, noticed that Noone loved Aone very nmch But as they grew older, the children didn't pay at0,  alentlou to Noone. One day Anyone died and later, when Noone died, she was Ixu'- ied next to him. I think fluR the poet Is trying to show two thlalgs in thispoem- monoto in life and howpeople get so wrapped up inthemselves that they don't care about other people. He gets the feelh monotc across by repetition. As I read the peom, I got the feelin8 that the people went throngh life detng the same thing year in and year out without changing. When he says "... they slept their dream" I think that he means the only thing peOple d/d was dream and did not do anythi. In one case, when he says: "Women and men (both little and small) cared for Anene not at all." I think that in just this oue instance Aone is notused to name the one person, but to show that the people did not care for ar other people. Cunts' style of writing is quite different from most oth- er poets. In this particular poem he only capitalizes one word (Women), and uses only two periods in the whole poem for punctuation. The only reason I could figure out for capitaliz- Ing women was that it was the first word that came after each The R Runn, by Jackie The Montana Oil Journal came up with concerning our luscious weather: "For the past week or so, Montana has the beautiful stuff that poets write about, and because they don't have any of, except maybe in To-wit: the beautiful snow, that wafts ,,  coating the prairies in and transforming ing pillars of beauty, EXCEPT, Most of about 20 inches of the some mountain .. in those areas to even the most ardent balked, because roads favorite leg - breaking closed.
