Saturday, M«y 2t, 1t71 Garden City Telegram Page 9 Language Students Spend 8 Weeks in 'Bilingual Class' students it Grairden City High School must know what teaming was like during the days of the one- room sehooihouse. After all, they attended class in a similar environment for the last eight weeks of the spring term. Patricia Moom, GCHS French teacher, taught French and Spanish students in the same room^She spent half of each dan period with the French students while the Spanish students studied. Then for the remainder of the period, she worked with the Spanish students. Commenting on bar bd-lingual class, Mrs. Moore said, "To my knowledge, this was a new experiment in foreign-language teaching." The experiment developed >ecause poor health forced the GCHS Spanish teacher, Ricca Woodfbuiry, to quit teaching several weeks ago, and it was Impossible to find a substitute so near the end of the school term. To keep Mrs. Woodibury's students from losing credit or from accepting low grades without having the chance to raise them, Mrs. Moore offer' ed to tafee over the Spanish assies if class schedules could be changed to enable her to do so, and if an assistant could be hired. GCHS counsellors changed several students' schedules, and combined two French and two Spanish classes to produce schedule with four French classes and five Spanish classes, a double teaching load". With the cooperation of students and the help of Mrs. Wrigiht Erwtae, an assistant, Mrs. Moore was able to handle her increased duties. Ma?s. Moome found iihait students involved in the bi-lingiial classes benefited from instruction in two languages. Whether this toistruafciKn has its pit- fails is hard to tell yet, but as Mrs. Moore pointed out, the mato advantage is that all students in the French and.Span- ish classes received instruction and credit from a full-time teacher who believes the bilingual teaching system will work. AT THE DIVIDING LINE — Garten City High School foreign language teacher, Patricia Moore, stands in the nriddki of her bilingual claw. One side of the room contained Spanish students, the other'French students. Mrs. Wright Erwin served as her Telegram Photo assistant during the last eight weeks of the experiment."

"This is exactly what happened then," he said in an ia- tervieAv! "I can't imagine they'd be so stupid as to permit it again," he said in reference to the Federal Reserve Board, which has considerable power over interest rates, Wright said the threatened collapse "is a danger which I do Aot! presently predict," but Which could occur at any time if tine administration permits the tread to continue.
