Created from Old Buses Schools Come To bolited School Children HAPEV1LLE. Ga (AP) "Very plush little classrooms" Created from old school buses (rind along the roads of six rural Southern counties each week introducing pre-school children to the modern world. Converted into "readimo- biles" by the federally financed Southeastern Education Laboratory in Hapeville. the buses provide isolated country children with their first taste of education. Dr. Kenneth W. Tidwell. the lab's acting director, said many pupils come from homes without electricity and sec their first electric lights and movies in the buses. INEXPENSIVE Tidewell said the readimo- biles are intended to show rural counties how to "have kindergarten inexpensively." Eacli child attends class about two hours a week as the readi- mobilcs make about eight stops in each county. Readimobiles arc operating in Georgia's Chattooga and Twiggs counties. Claiborne in Mississippi. Wakulla County. Fla., Choclaw County. Ala., and South Carolina's Wil liamsburg County. "Some kids get up at dawn tc come to classes," Tidwell said, In some instances, parents trail .he buses and attempt to have their children attend classes ive days a week even though the same material is presented ill each weekly stop. BEGUN IN 1966 Readimobiles are one of six programs the lab is currently developing under a U.S. Office of Education plan begun in June 1966. None of the programs has been completed, Tidwell said, "because development is slow work." He said the lab concentrates on developing educational programs and does little basic research. On a budget of about $880,000 per year, the lab operates the readimobile program, is devel- Moth Olympiads BANGALORE.

Fla. ONE OF 20 The Hapeville Lab is one of 20 throughout the nation. They are loosely linked. The Georgia center concentrates on work in Georgia, Florida and Alabama. A multi-sensory language development program for which manuals are being created stemmed from more than 100 hours of videotaped classroom discussions. Using the tapes, the lab iden tified 29 principal nonstandard speech forms and has developed 43 kits designed to help teachers concentrate on overcoming those speech habits. The MLDP plan is being tested in 11 elementary classrooms now but Tiriwell said there is al least another year's work ahead before the lab will have finished its work. NEGRO PUPILS By the end of the 1969-70 school year, the program may be ready for publishing. Tidwell aid once the program is sent to a publisher, the lab's work is done and its efforts will be available to anyone interested. Much of the lab's work is with Negro children but Tidwell stressed that despite its federal funding, "We're not a desegregation unit or a compliance unit al all." Tidwell said studies have shown there are nearly 500 school systems in the southern and border states with 60 per cent or more Negro pupils. He added, "we're in good position to help them because we don't withhold funds." Inspiration NEW YORK (AP) -- Linda Eastman, now Mrs. Paul McCartney, was the inspiration for the song "Linda." Jack Lawrence, a client of her attorney father, wrote it for her in 1946 and it was a hit record sung by Buddy Clark. The sheet music has a picture of Linda sitting on a p i a n o lisening to Lawrence play. me BEWARE OF GERBILS SANTA FE. N. M. (AP) 'Beware of gerbili." ta» the New Mexico Department ol Game and Fish. They could swarm the state. "The gerbil is a small, burrowing rodent, similar in many ways to a hamster." the latest Game and Fish news packet says. It explains that the littlt animals are sometimes sold at pets, but sale in New Mexico is being forbidden. " T h e i r native habitat is similar to many areas of New Mexico." said Bill Huey. chief of game management. "If released, they could no doubt surivve and reproduce in t h e numbers that have made them pests elsewhere." Huey cited an account o\ how in the year 1878 a swarm of gerbils "totally destroyed a 11 crops over an area of about 8 000 square miles in one part of India by literally mowing down the standing grain stalks."
