In 6t schools, nearly 10 per cent of the entire schotol system, more children than the totaled combined populations of the New York and New Jersey State capitals, are partklng of a new curriculum. Called an "activity pro- graitt," it actually is a supercombina- tion of progressive and conservative methods. 15r. John J. Loftus, associate super inteadent, who oversees the program, Is forever on a tour of the institutions involved, ranging from Hell's Kitchen to Park,avenue. Teaching By "Experiences" He says the experiment has workec so far, and that is his belief tha by end of the six-year period allottee for the: test, every school inthe cit will want to join in. At present it i confined to the first six grades of th Merchants: Order HANES From BEAl-BURROW Dry Goods Co.

A visit to the local grocery store that's an "experience") may mean a esson in arithmetic—what food costs; cography—where fod conies from; and polling—try broccoli; with a little tudy in human nature thrown in for good measure. But the 75,000 children don't spend ill their time touring the city. They do plenty of work rgiht in their own classrooms. They may build a model of the coming World's Fair—and learn a lot of history while they're doing it. If their teacher is alert, they can tie ,n the French and Indian war, the bat,le of Gettysburg, and other historical landmarks with past World's Fairs. The activity program means plenty of work for the teachers. At the start of the school year, they must choose the sort of experiences they're going to teach. If the experiences chosen for the fourth grade—there still are grades in the activity program—do not include the usual textbook material covered by fourth gradeers, the experiences can't be included. There must be a tie-up with subject matter. •Why, ask the ultra-progressives? Dr. Loftus has three answears ready. 1. New York City students have to pass Regents' examinations at the end of their elemtntary school work. 2. Many New York City students transfer to other schools during the elementary period, and must meet standard requirements. 3. Elementary schools lay the foundation for college preparation—and the majority of colleges as yet adhere to regulation grade systems and traditional examinations, where textbook knowledge is necessary. The activity program may be extended to all the schools at end of the six-year period—at least, through the first six grades—and eventually through junior and senior high schools. Most Beautiful Gifts of All By Alicia tlnrt NBA Service Staff Writer NEW YORK—Regardless of her age, size, height or weight,—no matter who she is, where she came from or where she's going—every woman wants beauty gifts for Christmas. For that matter, her brother, father, husband, children or best benu will be delighted with "beauty" aids. From a brand new perfume "to wear only with black" 'for the sophisticate! to a new men's set of lotions in masculine-looking, pottery bottles, there's an appropriate beauty preparation for each person on your list. Sumptuous and smart is a face powder ensemble, containing two shades of powder, one to be applied atop the other, and a brush to help one do the blending job successfully. From the same house comes a truly handsome bath set, including a giant cake of soap, toilet water, bath powder and bath salts, all scented with a subtly sweet perfume.. An especially generous gesture woUld be to include a small bottle of perfume in the same odor. There are dozens of new perfumes on the market, not to mention all the old favorites in new bottles and packages. Three sweet little bottles are packed together beneath a Christmas bell. A huge cake of bath soap nestles inside a Santa Claus mask. A wonderful cologne comes in a bottle which simulates a brandy decanter. A quart size champagne bottle contains cologne liquid for the bath and is packed in a wine basket. In a wicker steamer basket are perfume, a decanter of cologne, a lipstick and bath powder. Three bottles of perfume go in a small metal crate, and can be locked in.
