By JON KAMMAN Citizen Staff Writer Disturbed because many of his high school students have l a c k e d basic mathematical skills, a Tucson teacher has designed a teaching machine. William J. Higgins Jr., math teacher and business administrator at Salpointe High, has been granted a patent on the device, which he calls a self- teaching aid. It is unique, he claims, because no other teaching machine is as portable, lightweight a n d inexpensively manufactured. "Although I designed it for use in mathematics courses, it can be used for any subject," Higgins says. Operating on battery-powered electrical circuitry, the machine consists of a series of a dozen "windows" for questions, and dials which contain a choice of 11 answers for each question. When all problems are completed correctly by dialing answers to questions, a bulb lights up. Higgins sees numerous potential uses for the machine, but feels it would be particularly helpful in teaching basic skills involving the use of multiplication tables, parts of speech or other information which requires time-consuming drills. Several manufacturers are interested in the machine, and Higgins estimates it can be mass-produced to . retail at around $7 per unit. "We're working to see if we can cut that price even further," he says. The machine is only the size of an average book. Higgins, who has done research on how students learn, also says the self-teaching aid is educationally sound because a pupil finds out immediately if he is right or wrong when he selects a set of answers. "He literally gets his answer in a flash when the bulb lights up," the inventor says. One major use of the machine could be in the home, Higgins points out. "It's a little rough to tell a 7-year-old to go practice his multiplication tables," he points out. "But a machine would make it easier and more fun to study."

UA Forms Pre-Medical Honor Unit The new Beta chapter of Alpha Epsilon Delta, international pre-medical honor society at the University of Arizona, installed officers this weekend. "Our purpoe is to encourage i n t e r e s t in high scholastic achievement in pre-medical work," said Joel Kunkel of Tucson, the president. "We estimate that there are approximately 400 pre-medical and pre-dental students at the university. Other officers installed in ceremonies during a Student Union banquet were Thomas Griffin, first vice president; Tedd Ellerbock, second vice president; Susan Quails, secretary; Steven Schwarting, treasurer; Michael Citron, historian, and Garry Strauser. public relations. Alpha Epsilon Delta has 29,000 members in 91 chapters throughout the United States and Cnada. the National Rifle Association. He said its classification as a social welfare organization was ridiculous. McCarthy said in a speech prepared for the House that the NRA's chief function was to fight gun control legislation and any other purposes such as gun safety were secondary. "It certainly isn't a 'social welfare' organization," he said. McCarthy made public a letter to Commissioner Sheldon S. Cohen of the I n t e r n a l Revenue Service asking for a prompt review of the NRA's status. He told Cohen that since the association itself is tax- exempt, so is its widely distributed magazine The American Rifleman. McCarthy called attention to a recent editorial in the magazine suggesting that Americans arm themselves to a form of citizen militia to protect their homes and neighborhoods where police forces are deemed inadequate. McCarthy said that since the NRA is exempt from taxes, "its magazine pays no taxes on the enormous revenues it earns from paid advertisements that appear in the magazine." "It was such an ad in the A m e ric a n Rifleman t h at prompted an obscure young man to rip out an attached "The large tRx-frce revenues from such ads help finance not only the publication of incendiary editorials but the NRA's incessant campaign against virtually a n y r e a s o n ab le firearms control bill."

Rent by DAY, MONTH or YEAR Cambodia's Sihanouk Dares Reds PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) -- Prince Norodom Siha- nouk has challenged Cambodian Communist leaders to hold a referendum to let the people choose between communism and the present regime. The Cambodian chief of state issued the challenge along with a sharp criticism of workers and students who spread Communist propaganda. He accused the Communists of representing the Cambodian people as poor and crushed "while the taxes here are the lowest in the world." The prince, who is better known for his scolding of Washington than his challenges to Communists, said of the referendum: "Every or of us will accept the decision of the majority of the voters." Since Siha- nouk commands the loyalty of an overwhelming majority of his people, there was no doubt of the outcome. BUNIONS?
