Johnny Goes to Sixfh Reaches Final Stage Of Elementary School (Editor's note: This is the Ixth in a series of articles covering the curriculum offered in the Reno school system. The articles are aimed at a comprehensive and objective study of the system in vogue here and no attempt is made to assess the results.) By NORA KELLOGG Johhny, as a sixth grader, Is part of a class which will end the present sixth grade system. At the present time, the sixth grade is incorporated with the junior high school grades in Reno. Next yearf it will revert to its original status as the final grade in elementary school. Subjects included in .the school day are arithmetic, social studies, language, reading, and science. Subjects are essentially the same, but they are probed more thoroughly. STUDIES DIVIDED Johnny's social studies lessons are divided into teachings in history and geography. During history lessons, Johnny is given a background in ancient times and the middle ages, and learns how-many of our present principles evolved from those times. Johnny discovers that the principles of democracy and American culture were derived from the same principles which ruled the ancient Greeks. He also learns that the laws which govern our society are almost duplicates of those that governed the Romans. Tolerance and an understanding of religion is also brought into his history lessons. Johnny learns about faiths other than his by studying the development of Christianity, Judaism, and Mohammedanism. In the realm of geography, Johnny studies .the continents of Europe, Asia, and Africa. He also studies areas in the South Pacific. By now, he has a general knowledge of the geographical attractions of the world. LESSONS EXPAND Arithmetic lessons haxe expanded to include addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of fractions. In addition to this, Johnny is also introduced to the decimal system. He also reviews what he has learned in the past and continues problem solving. In his language lessons, the use of the library is stressed and Johnny spends quite a bit of time weekly learning its functions. This is important to him as he must become experienced in using research and reference books for many of his 2 BIG FREE OUR AUDIENCES tell us this has become their favorite Picture of all time! 2ND WEEK! - MAJESTIC AND AN EXQUISITENEWJAPANESE?STAR. m 4k&k ioV6Rt1 t'lTlMKt 'TIIICI WSK-KDIHTTOI-IICDO UONTALSAN -MARTHI SCOTT-MITOSm UUEIkJlMES CJtRNEK I at iimoK.ii MIIKOTAKAl Plus, Warner Bros.

He is given lessons in more detailed sentence structure than he has had in the past, and is now more concerned with the correct usage of words. His lessons are put to practical use as he must frequently give oral and written reports in class. Some time is spent during the year in choral speaking. The class learns poems which are recited by the class as a whole, and by individuals. Some of Johnny's reading is done orally in an effort to improve speed and comprehension. Johnny's appreciation of literature increases as a result of reading books of interest outside of class, and making written and oral reports on them. Science periods, which are half a period daily, take up the subjects of animal and plant life, astronomy and the study of constellations, nutrition, and physical anatomy. This enables him to learn the life processes of objects around him. He also learns the earth's relation to other planets in the universe, and how the planets affect the earth. Homework is dependent mainly upon the initiative of the students. It is still in the stages of being optional, but Johnny spends some time each week supplementing his studies with outside reading.

JACOBY ON BRIDGE Simple Squeeze Is Perfect Slam By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NEA Service Harry Fishbein of New York's Mayfair club is one of the greatest card players of all times. Here is one of his latest triumphs told in his own words. "When I bid five no-trump my partner Morrie Elis jumped io seven clubs. I had shown that we held all the aces and he had just the right' cards for the grand slam. East doubled and that could mean only one thmg. A void in diamonds! I went to seven no-trump and West opened .the diamond ten.

Since East had shown out of diamonds the diamond finesse is proven and you have 12 tricks. Now you cash the three top spades. If the jack drops you have 13 tricks. The way the cards actually lie East fhovvs out of spades on the third lead of the suit. Now you jun five clubs, discarding dummy s queen of hearts on the last club. The ace of hearts lead now forces West to throw the jack of spades to establish dummy's ten or a diamond to make dummy's three diamonds all good. If West had shown out of spades Harry would have run the clubs again. On the last club lead West would have had to discard down to one heart to keep three diamonds. Now Harry would let go dummy's little diamond and lead to the ace-jack. On the second diamond East would have to go down to one heart to keep the jack of spades and both Harry's hearts would be winners. Simple! SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS IS SOUGHT PITTSBURGH, Jan. 11.

The elephant and lion cages are being sprayed with sweet-smelling detergents in an effort to eliminate odors re-pellant to squeamish visitors.

McDermott said a letter of instruction will go out to all stockholders later this month about transfer of their invest ments. Under the reorganization plan which has met the approval of Judge Ross, the claims of creditors will be honored by one hundred per cent payments while stockholders are slated to receive about one-third on their investments.

It is a well-indexed book which makes it a valuable aid to those seeking specific information. "A Traveler in Rome" is a continuation of a series by H. V. Morton. It is much more than a travel book. Morton deals equally well with history, customs and people as well as places. This illustrated book has some interesting things to say about tourists that . any prospective tourist would do well to read before traveling anywhere in Europe. Travel combined with hih adventure is found in the nv Alistair Maclean book, "Souh by Java Head." The adventure stems from the Japanese invasion and the escape of the last stragglers from Singapore. The action is keenly drawn in this Scottish author's fine "no-wasted-words" style. "Kampong" is a novel by Ronald Hardy of a medical unit's desperate fight against a cholera outbreak in Indonesia. "Kampong" refers to a Javanese native village where Dr. Harry Lynd and his staff fight malnutrition and squalor in addition to the dreaded disease. On the lighter side is "Bachelor's Baby" by Gwen Davenport, the same author who wrote "Belvedere." This story deals with the perfect secretary and Oliver Custer, the executive, who couldn't dispense with her services despite her impending blessed event. As a solution, he invites the perfect secretary to retyrn to work, nurse, baby, bottles and all. BAND PROGRAM SET PORTOLA, Calif.
