By CAROL COOKE Seven different classes in the United States are participating in the University of Illinois solid geometry experiment--five of them at Catalina High. Three U1CSM (University of Illinois committee on school mathematics) third year classes and two plane geometry classes are taking part in the four week self- progression solid geometry unit at CHS. The other two classes are in Chicago and Philadelphia. Solid geometry, now a one semester course taught at high schools is being experimented with to see if it can be taught in a better manner in a shorter length of time. The UICSM solid geometry unit, titled Unit 901, is being taught in the experiment on a self - teaching, self - progress method.

For the amalgam of skits, dance numbers, songs, and narrations was a "smashing uccess," according to overall chairman of the show Ann Bright. Comments Ann, "I couldn't have hoped for more. The show exceeded my wildest expectations." With door receipts well over the $300 mark and full houses greeting the amateur actors, Senior Showcase was pronounced a success by all concerned. Held April 24 and 25, the show was co-ordinated by Vlaster of Ceremonies Pat Van- Der Wyst, who covered intra- act delays as well as announcing the acts.

"Though it is not yet known hat method of teaching will be used if Unit 901 proves uccessful," says Steven Sva- bo, author of the unit, "dif- erent ways such as the self- progression method, are being discussed by the committee." Svabo and Robert Brown, o-editor of Unit 901, visited Catalina last week to check the progression of the classes, which began work on the Unit April 22. "The reason for the answer xok is for our purposes," explains Brown, "the commit- :ee will go over each one and see where there are mistakes and look into the reasons for answers." A definite time element is also involved other than that of the four weeks. Each time a student begins work, he marks down the time. When he stops he again records the time and the page he just finished. "This is for our records," states Svabo. "We definitely want to know the average working time on the unit." The general student feeling toward the unit is quite favorable and the teacher approval even more so. Ralph Futrell, CHS math department head is in favor of the unit, and stated he felt this to be a much more excellent method of teaching the solid geometry course. One unknowing boy, a UICSM student in the experiment was baffled over a question and exclaimed, "Boy, I bet it took an IBM machine ten years to write this book!" Svabo quietly tapped the boy on the shoulder and said, "No, I wrote it in three months." specific numbers the show.

Six AFS Students Hosted At Tucson By CAROLYN ROSS Tucson High today hosted six foreign exchange students n their American Field Serv- ce (AFS) assembly in the Badger auditorium.

Arnfinn Engen, an Amphitheater senior from Norway; Christine Gauthier, a Flowing Wells student from France; Masud Ghani, a Catalina Trojan from West Pakistan; Nurys Lara-Munoz, a student at Rincon from Chile; Ing- Britt Lenderos, attending Catalina from Sweden; and Ersin Omulduran, a Rincon Ranger from Turkey formed the pane'. which discussed some of the customs · and traditions ol their respective countries such as dating, food, sports and dress. Tucson High students who went abroad were also intro duced. They are Eric Ek, who went to Germany, and Jac quie O'Brien, who visited Italy. Rachel Ruskin, moderato of the panel discussion anc Tucson High student repre entative to the Tucson AFS chapter, also stressed the importance of all Badgers par- icipating in the AFS Garni- ral May 24.

Titans Take Honors Palo Verde has recently taken top honors in both the national and state mathematics contests. Marshal Buck, a PV sophomore, placed first in the Southwest in the individual scores. Juniors Ed Townsend and John Middleditch placed third and fifth respectively. These three students also took second place in the southwestern division as a team score. In the state math contest Marshal Buck took the top honors for the third consecutive year. ASB Officers Chosen At SHS i ^ ^ Caballero Junior Named District Key Club SecV ALL ARE BUSY GETTING READY Seen above are several Pueblo High students busy working on their props for their Fiesta concession. The Fiesta is coming to the PHS campus Friday. Busy painting are Patt Cashon (I.) and Donna Falzarano. Looking on are (1. to r.) Don Spar, chairman of the Homoroom Central Committee, and Bruce Collins, publicity chairman; as John Pennington and Dale Frederick work the concession. Tucson's first Key Club International District o f f i c e r was inaugurated April 20, when Steve Richard, a Flowing Wells junior, was named District Secretary of the United States Southwestern District which encompasses Arizona, New Mexico and El Paso, Texas. Also elected from among the ranks of the FW Key Club was David DeSimone, Lt. Governor elect from Division VI. Organized, t h e F l o w i n g Wells delegates were able to get Steve Richard elected through the use of posters buttons, and a barrage of speeches. The election, which was held at the Key Club District convention in Phoenix, also named a District Governor, John Garcia, and a District Treasurer, Jim Worthen, both of Phoenix, Conventioners from Flowing Wells left school Friday at noon in order to reach Phoenix and the Westward Ho convention headquarters in time to register. Regular delegates were John Bauman, Wes STEVE R I C H A R D De Lozier, Mike Straley, Steve Richard and Pat McAndrew Voting delegates were Tom Holladay and Da "id DeSimone.

All c a n d i d at es gave speeches in assemblies before the entire student body Thursday. At the assembly for the student body elections, this year's officers outlined the duties for the voters and thanked students for cooperation during this year.
