Wednesday, October 16, 1974 MOPE (AttfO STAtt Page -^^ SCHOOL BROOKWOOD A "tasty" lesson was enjoyed recently in Mrs. Gullett's and Mrs. Mitchell's first-grade classes. They prepared their lesson by talking about and measuring each ingredient. After combining them and turning on an electric .switch, children, teachers, and Mrs. Brown enjoyed homemade chocolate ice cream. How are houses planned and constructed? What materials are used? These questions were answered on a field trip to the new urban renewal housing area. Travelers were Mrs. Irby's fourth-grade students who had, been studying an "Urban Awareness" program. PAISLEY All kindergarten classes and the first grade at Paisley School went to the "fair" on September 25. They toured the livestock barns and paid special attention to the Petting Zoo, provided by the Hope Parks and Recreation Department. From there they went to the Art Barn.

Four guides pointed out to the guests the highlights and demonstrated a mini-lesson in poetry with the headsets and tapes in the Listening Center and other audio-visual aids. Mrs. Grayson Spears has been the "most," to say the least, to stimulate high interest and enthusiasm in creative art. We have proudly displayed our masterpieces in the classroom art gallery. Our hats are off to you, Mrs. Spears! Some breath-taking experiments in our science center really put some zest into the school day and make learning fun. We've made many weather instruments or devices and tinkered with exciting air pressure experiments. An addition to our classroom family is our aide, Mrs. S.Y. Davis. We love you and appreciate your help. The fifth-grade social studeis class has completed units entitled "Forming a New Nation" and "The Nation Grows and Divides."

A downpour of nearly 3 inches swamped Valparaiso, Fla., during the night as thunderstorms crackled across the Southeast from the Florida Panhandle to the Carolina.s Up to an inch of rain soaked Charlottesville, Va., and Wrightstown, N.J. A few sprinkles dampened parts of the upper Great Lakes region, but most of the rest of the nation outside the East was clear and dry. Exceptions were patches of high cloudiness over the northern Rockies and fog along the Southern California coast. Crisp seasonal temperatures in the 30s and 40s prevailed during the night over the northern half of the country outside the rainy regions. Readings in the 50s and 60s were the rule elsewhere. Buyers should find mortgage money easier to Go v, Dunn WBSt MEMPHIS, Ark. (AP) — Tennessee Gov, Winfield Dunn said Tuesday night that the situation of Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Coon reminded him of his own when he was elected governor in that Dunn was "hot committed to any bloc group or selfish interests." Coon will oppose Democrat David Pryor of Little Rock in the Nov. 5 general election. Dunn traveled to East Arkansas Tuesday night on behalf of Coon, but told a news confer* , ence that it would be presumptuous of him to ask Arkansans Lo vole for Coon. Instead, Dunn said he was appearing as chairman of the Republican Governors Association and because he considers Coon a "deeply concerned human being" who "wants to contribute in a positive way to the political climate." The outgoing governor was asked about the chances of Republican candidates this year. He said it is hard to measure the pulse of the people but that the national politics of the Republicans in recent months "haven't been good." He said the controversy surrounding some of President Ford's early actions, such as the pardoning of Richard Nixon and the granting of conditional amnesty to draft evaders and deserters, had helped to '^dampen the enthusiasm" of voters. Dunn and Coon also attended a reception at the Earle home of Charles Bernard, Coon's statewide campaign manager. They were joined there by two other Republican candidates, John Harris Jones of Pine Bluff, who opposes Gov. Dale Bumpers' bid for the U.S. Senate, and Leona Troxell of Rosebud, who opposes Joe Purcell's bid for lieutenant governor. Coon said that, if elected, he hoped his administration could emulate some of the achievements made by the Dunn administration. Among those cited were the raising of teachers' salaries and the development of a 20-year highway plan and regional prison system. Dunn, a dentist, said he had received some business offers in Nashville, Tenn., But he indicated that he had not decided what he would do after leaving office. Coon hits Pryor on donations WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (AP) — Ken Coon, the Republican candidate for governor, said Tuesday night that David Pryor was afraid to reveal the names of his campaign contributors because many of them had ties with the days of former Gov. Orval E. Faubus. Coon was in Crittenden County for a news conference held by Tennessee Gov. Winfield Dunn in behalf of Coon, who will oppose Pryor in the Nov. 5 general election. Pryor defeated Faubus and LI. Gov. Bob C. Riley in the Democratic primary last May. Coon alluded briefly to his surprise confrontation with Pryor in Smackover at a civic club meeting Tuesday morning. At that meeting, Coon asked Pryor why Pryor would not de- bale him and why Pryor refused to make a full disclosure of the sources of his campaign funds. "He thought a debate was a great idea a couple of years ago," Coon said of Pryor, who challenged Sen. John L. McClellan, D-Ark., to a debate during Pryor's unsuccessful senatorial campaign in 1972. Coon said he had demonstrated his integrity in that he had made a full disclosure of financial support, had addressed the issues and had made himself available for a debate. On the other hand, Coon said, Pryor had not done these things. Ai Smackover, Coon had slopped Pryor on the street to reissue his debate challenge and lo ask Pryor again to reveal ihe sources of his campaign finances. Coon, who had attended a luncheon at which Pryor spoke, declined when Pryor offered to share the microphone with him. WASHINGTON (AP) - Homebuyers should find mortgage money easier to locate as a result of an emergency housing credit bill passed by Congress Tuesday. The bill, which authorizes up io $7.7 billion fof federal purchases of conventional housing mongages, was a priority request of President Ford in his economic message to Congress a week'ago. Rep. Garry Brown, a ranking Republican on the Banking Committee, said he has been assured that Ford will sign the bill. / He said the mortgage purchases should begirt soon afterward, freeing up banks and savings and loan institutions to underwrite more mortgages. Seventy per cent Of single- family homes have con- vrmional mortgages but the government's secondary mortgage agencies have been restricted to purchases of home mortgages insured by tne Veterans Administration and the Federal Housing Administration. Middle-class homebuyers wfll benefit most from the legislation. It authorizes the government agencies lo buy up mortgages on houses costing between $33,000 and $38,000 but authorizes the secretary of Housing and Urban Development to allow purchases of mortgages on houses .costing up to $42,000 in high-cost areas. A ceiling of $55,000 was put on mortgages In Ihe extraordinarily expensive areas of Alaska, Hawaii and Guam. The housing industry is in its worst doldrums since World Warn, its officials say, Homebuyers can't find mortgage money and when they do, it is prohibitively expensive be- cause of fntSRSit 1 fltes ftp* preaching 10 pet cent in s«rte areas. in a flgto on the Senate floor, Sen, William Pfexmtre, B»Wl*,i succeeded in getting the bill's interest rate lowered to the cost of the money to the treasury plus one-half of bfte per ceftt, or about 8.5 per cent Brown estimated the interest would be higher than Proxmlre had projected, somewhere between 8V4 and fcft per cent. 20% off all our knit tops and pant tops.
