50 Years Ago January 20, 1972 SCOOTING AROUND STANLEY with JOE (Fazendin) Congratulations Oriole Wrestlers on your 43 – 10 win Thursday over Cadott. For those of you who do not follow wrestling, that victory put the Orioles back in first place in the Western Cloverbelt.

• • This Sunday the second annual Otter Lake Sno-Fest will be held. The weather forecast is for a warmer weekend than last year, so an even larger crowd is expected. Last year a parking problem larger than expected was created. This year plans have been made to solve the park- ing problem, and the traffic congestion with the end result having the spectators parking much closer to the track area.

• • The deadline is nearing for those who wish to file for the public offices that are now open on the local level. If you wish to file, get started now.

• • It’s not too often that a weekly newspaper will print a large article that has appeared in print elsewhere, but recently I ran across an article about the Packers that I felt might be of interest to many of the Republican readers. The article appears on page four of this week’s edition.

PTA Sees Films, Holds Discussion On Vital School Drop-out Problem Why do 55 percent of the nation’s high school pupils leave school before graduation? That problem, in its various aspects, presents a continuing challenge to administrators, teachers, parents and citizens in general. (local drop-out rate reported as 45 percent by superintendent R. V. Boyer). Now, with compulsory education until 16 years, schools have to face more definitely the problems of pu pil adjustment on an individual level. Real Winter Storm Hits City, Region Many schools in the area, including Stanley schools, were closed Tuesday and Wednesday because of drifted roads…The heavy blizzard was, however, a boon to farmers who have been concerned about the skimpy snow cover in their fields.

Attorney General Francis Biddle has announced new regulations affecting the conduct of German, Italian, and Japanese nationals throughout the continental United States.

The identification pro gram, which will affect approximately 1,100,000 German, Italian and Japanese non-citizens, will be directed by Mr. Earl G. Harrison, former Director of Alien Registration and now a Special Assistant to the Attorney General advising on alien problems.

Failure to comply with the new regulations may be punished by severe penalties, including possible interment of the enemy alien for the duration of the war.

120 Years Ago January 11, 1902 Talmadge’s Sermon In this Dr. Talmage's first discourse for the new year he speaks words of encouragement to all the timid and doubting. The text is Exodus 12:2,–“This month (Aviv) shall be unto you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.”

The last month of the old year has passed out of sight, and the first month of the new year has arrived….Now that the train of months has started, let is pass, January followed by February, with its longer days, and March, with its fierce winds; and April, with its sudden showers; and May, with its blossoming orchards; and June, with its carnival of flowers; and July, with its harvests; and August, with its sweltering heats; and September, with its drifting leaves; and October, with its frosts; and November, with its Thanksgiving scenes; and December, with its Christian hilarities (Latin “hilarem” = “cheerful”). March on, O battalion of the months, in the regiments of the years and brigades of the centuries! March on and join the months and years and centuries already passed until all the rivers of time have emptied into the ocean of eternity, but none of all the host ought to render higher thanks to God or take larger comfort or make more magnificent resolves than this the first month of the year.

Sermonetttes: Apostolic Work.—Diffuse the light, spread the truth, make the God man known to men. This is truly apostolic work, the duty of the priest and preacher. Another duty or work of the priesthood is that of mediator between God and man (based upon the principle of Incarnation, by which God the Father (a pure spirit) willed that humans be led to him via the Son, who took on flesh and dwelt among us). –Rev. M. A. Fitzgerald, Catholic, Brooklyn, N. Y.
