Z The Glenvme Democrat/Pathfinder Publmhm's Pad For those of you who have had a belly full of governmental interference in your lives as private American citizens, a release in the July 24 issue of PUBLISHERS AUXILIARY is enough to finally make you sick to your stomach. According to PA, the Department of Health, Education and Welfare has "reluctantly" issued final regulations implementing the provisions of the so-called BucMey Amendment passed by the Congress some fifteen months ago. This amendment, in effect, prohibits any school receiving federal funds from releasing, without explicit written permission from parents or from the student if he or she is more than 18 years old, "personally identifiable" information about the student. This would have the effect of eliminating the publication of the names and addresses of honor students, news stories concerning the valedictorian and salutorian of graduating classes, and, we suppose, athletic and any other achievements of students or teachers in such schools. Since practically every school in the nation receives some sort of federal aid, this absolutely foolish law effectively places a censor's pencil on the publicizing of what we consider to be some of the most significant events on our local scene. lne law does allow schools to release "directory" information without consent and places the burden of this decision on school administrators. If they do this, however, they must do so in accordance with a procedure outlined in the regulations. We suppose this involves the filling out of endless forms with no worthwhile purpose whatsoever, except to provide more file clerk jobs at the tpayers expense. Our newspapers have long been privileged and honored to give a great deal of publicity to our schools and our students. We fel it is right that our fine young people receive recognition for their achievements. This insidious censorship of the press by the federal government does a disservice to our children and threatens the rights of all Americans. For those who look with great favor on federally funded school programs because it allows them to avoid their responsibility of local support for local schools, this new regulation should be fair warning that those who do provide the cash end up with the control. We are somewhat encouraged the HEW is "reluctantly" imposing the requirements of the law. We only wish that our representatives would practice tlm same constraint before approving highly questionable programs which place nonsensical controls over the everyday lives of American citizens in return for the privilege of using our own money. -RDA ew iiil. =% By U.

Chauncey Browning The day has passed when most people can afford to buy their cars only for style and status. Since consumers are increasingly concerned with the operational costs of their cars, particulary the gas mileage, our ofice continually gets complaints about the mileage ratings of the Environment- al Protection Agency (EPA}. Beginning with the fuel shortage several years ago tha caused long. lines at service stations and skyrocketing gasoline prices, auto manufacturers have made mileage claims an important part of their sales promotions. When manufacturers began using mileage claims to boost sales, there were no standards for the companies to follow when running the tests which established the ratings. The result was mileage figures that were modest; however, there was some question To eliminetS Federal Trade regulations disclosures ads and on Whenever an mileage clai EPA's city that car must figures are on a dynamometer, patterns. However. government in creating more may be true EPA ratings. Published Every By GILMER COUNTY PUBL At 109 E.
