Nason On Education May Be Intelligent And IQ Not Show It By DR. LESLIE J. NASON Professor of Education, USC Your j»ungster has a high 1.. Q. Fine. Yours has a lower I.O., but he is creative. He wrestles with an idea; he works well with h i s hands; he has a special kind of intelligence. That's good, too. what really some test subjects a great advantage over others. A rich cultural environment makes for a high score. 3. Reading comprehension which can be increased with training. 4. Memory which may be organized or disorganized. 5. Ability and willingness to follow directions. 6. Skill in taking the test. 7. Experience in taking tests. Youngsters who take many tests get wise in the ways of tests. The I.Q. is still a good counseling tool. Let's not throw it out. But it is not the only tool. What we need are means of determining other kinds of special intelligence. (You can address your questions to Dr. Nason in care of this newpaper. He will discuss those of most general interest in his column.) B u t does it mean? We have I.Q. (Intelligence Quoti ent) as though it represented NASON the only kind of intelligence. Educators are fiding that there are many kinds of intelligence not measured by the standard I.Q. test. We should have several different I.Q.'s based upon special factors of intelligence for use in counseling students. Who can say that one kind of intelligence is better than another? I.Q's are obtained by dividing a test score by the subject's age. The tests now used do not measure some phases of intelligence. For instance, they do not measure creativity. To measure creativity the test would have to measure fluency, flexibility, originality and elaboration. All these bear on creativity and yet the traditional intelligence test fails to measure them Students who are creative are likely to succeed in school far better than could be predicted from their I.Q. Educators shy away from giving out the I.Q.'s of children even to their parents. They are not sure as to their accuracy. They are not sure just what they represent in the way of ability. They know that too low an I.Q. could mean trouble, unhappiness, or outright failure in college. But they know that a high I.Q. indicates good potential so far as school goes. But they fear that, rather than • measure of inate, God-given ability, the scores in intelligence tests in present use may be affected by: 1. Verbal ability — which penalizes those with an English handicap. 2. Background of ideas gained in everyday living. This gives Would Remove Other Body In Lenin's Tomb Find Body Of Slayer WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, Mont. (AP)—The body of Donald Lee Smith, 24, of Mendota, Mo., has been found in a pickup truck in a Montana canyon, bringing to a close a widespread search for the man who was wanted in connection with the slaying of a Mendota farmer near the Iowa border. Smith disappeared after Carl Jones, 50, was robbed and slain Oct. 7. Smith, a former mental patient, had vowed he would get even with neighbors whose testimony sent him to the state hospital. Jones was one of those witnesses. About 40 other residents of the Mendota area lived in fear for several days after the slaying. They deserted their homes al No Wiley Bid For Deferment WASHINGTON (AP)-Aides of Sen. Alexander Wiley, R • Wis., said today Wiley made no request for deferments for two members of the Green Bay Packers who have been called for military duty. Wiley's office said various Green Bay groups had asked the senator for help to obtain deferments until the end of the season for halfback Paul Hornung and linebacker Ray Nitschke. A Wily aide said the requests were forwarded to the Pentagon without comment from Wiley. Hornung was to report to Ft. Riley, Kan. today but received a temporary stay when he was ordered into a navy hospital for a thorough physical checkup. Nitschke is due to report at Ft.

(AP)Rev. G. A. Gough preaches at the First Church of the Nazarene of Wichita, Kan., Sunday mornings, attends classes at Michigan State University here Mondays and Tuesday, and conducts services in his church Wednesday evenings. Mr. Gough commutes nearly 2,000 miles every week to continue his doctoral degree studies at MSU. He boards a train each Sunday night, arriving in East Lansing Monday afternoon. He leaves here by plane Wednesday mornings and lands in Wichita that afternoon— with time to spare before the evening service. The 46-year-old minister attends courses in counseling, education and administration at MSU—with one term to go for a Ph. D.

Khrushchev said as a result of Stalin's purges, the Soviet army's efficiency was at a low ebb at the time of the German attack in 1941. The mausoleum, which thousands visit each day, was suddenly closed Sunday "for repairs," a police guard on duty there said The name of Stalin, put alongside Lenin's on the tomb when his embalmed body was placed there in 1953, will be removed. The monument now will bear the name of the founder of modern- day communism, Vladimir Dyich Lenin. There was no immediate announcement where the embalmed body of Stalin will be placed. The proposal for the removal was made in the congress in the Kremlin by Ivan Spiridonov, first secretary of the party in the Leningrad region. night and gathered at Mendota, j 32nd National Guard Division posting armed guards. which earlier this fall was or Smith took Jones' pickup truck, a shotgun, rifle and ammunition. Smith's body was found Sunday in the Jones truck, along with the shotgun and rifle. Identification papers of both Smith and Jones were found.

Smith apparently was on his way to Yakima, Wash., where he once worked. Conservatives Win In Greece ATHENS, Greece (AP)-Greek conservatives led by Constantine Caramanlis won another four-year term today in a firm endorsement of the government's pro-Western foreign policy and economic stability at home. The premier's rightist National Radical Union (ERE) surged toward a decisive victory with the gains coming mostly at the expense of the Communist-line Pan- democratic Agrarian Front (FAME). The middle-of-the-road Union of the Center was runner-up to the ERE in popular vote but Cara- manlis, 54, who has headed the Greek government for six years, was assured of a working majority in Parliament.
