Exciting Role For Teacher Virginia Tefft, formerly of Pomona, is having exciting experiences as a teacher at Ewha University in Seoul, Korea. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Tefft, Pomona. Virginia was graduated from Appanoose High School and attended Emporia State College and Columbia University, New York City. One of the unusual experiences she went through recently was holding an American folk dance clinic at the request of the YWCA. At least 100 men and women physical education teachers attended the clinic each evening, and the event became quite involved because of the difficulty in "calling" the square dances. It was necessary to have a caller using a microphone in English and an interpreter translating at another microphone. The Christmas season provided an opportunity for another interesting experience. The cook at "English House" was away on vacation, so Miss Tefft and two other teachers decided to prepare the Christmas dinner with a 14-pound turkey and most of the customary trimmings. The strange assortment of guests included a Korean professor and his American wife and baby, a Methodist missionary and his wife, a Lutheran girl who works with Church World Service, a homesick boy stationed with the 8th Army in Seoul, a United Church of Canada missionary who teaches English to nurses and a homeless Korean girl. Miss Tefft is teaching English to a group of students who will visit the United States when they graduate in the spring, and in turn the students are teaching her the Korean language. One of the difficulties Miss Tefft is learning to live with is sitting on the floor and eating with chopsticks. She plans a trip by air dur ing January and February. These two months bring very cold weath er to Korea, and due to the short age of fuel the school is closet for that period. She will visit Hong Kong, Thailand, Burma, India, Pakistan, Ceylon, Singapore, Australia, the Philippines and Japan.

Mulberry, says her daily copy of The Ottawa Herald is going even farther than the one sent to Mrs. Ernie Striplin, Kansas City. Mrs. Striplin told The Herald that Mrs. Nina Smith, 904 Cypress, sends her copy to the Striplins who pass it on to other interested persons in Kansas City. Mrs. Lantis says she mails her copy to La Vale, Md., to her daughter, Mrs. Tom Walsh, who passes it on to the Tom Seymours, former Ottawans of LaVale. New Approach To Test Ban? WASHINGTON (AP)-Th« United States and the Soviet Union ire privately exploring new approaches to a nuclear test ban agreement, the Washington Post said. A new Soviet overture toward breaking the deadlock on international inspection of a test ban is understood to have been made to the United States, the Post said. "The nature and details of this move have been kept secret, and it is believed to be still in an embryonic state," the Post said. "Whether it will in fact produce something tangible or end up as another false start is still unknown." Vastly V. deputy foreign Soviet minister, is in No Threat To Beef In Hunk Of Hippo SALT LAKE CITY (AP)-Uganda's ambassador to the United Nations, brought here for what backers called America's first hippopotamus meat banquet, turned a joke into a serious affair. Ambassador Apollo K. Kironde told the luncheon group Thursday that economic diversity and eu- ation are key African problems. "Diversity would make our economy less dependent on fluctuations of the world market," Kir- >nde said. Uganda tends to look toward the anv West for economic aid, the bassador said, adding that nothing would prevent the country from accepting aid from the East. Disc jockey Will Lucas of radio station KALL read about Uganda' desire to export hippo meat last month. He got the Uganda gov eminent to send him some meat then invited 34 guests to luncheon When Kironde announced he would attend, the luncheon became i semi-formal affair attended b; state and city officials. Diners said they enjoyed th main course, but no one asked fo seconds.

Oak, convinced he has a dandy watch. Britain has been at Ransom Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries suffered in a recent accident. His clothes, with his pocketwatch in them, were taken to a coin-operated laundry •' for washing. Through the washer and into the dryer they went. Then the watch was noticed flying around and around in the dryer. It was retrieved, still and returned to Britain. running, Interstate Open In Oklahoma Washington talking with U.S. officials. One of the subjects he discussed with President Kennedy Wednesday was disarmament. Kuznetsov, former chief Soviet negotiator in the Geneva disarmament negotiations, conferred with Secretary of State Dean Rusk Thursday. He meets today with William C. Foster, director of the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, and Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara. However, U.S. spokesman have made a point of specifying that Kuznetsov's talks here have been "casual." Kuznetsov just completed more than two months of Cuban crisis negotiations in New York am was invited to Washington for a round of conferences. The Poet, in a story by Murray Marder and Howard Simmons noted that Semyon K. Tsarapkin chief Soviet negotiators in the Geneva test ban talks arrived in New. York Wednesday night. "It is believed," the Post said "that Tsarapkin will have discus sions. there, and possibly in Wash ington. later, about a new approach to the American-Sovie deadlock on test ban inspection.' Praise Russell WASHINGTON (AP)-"One of he greatest statesmen of our times," said Senate Republican leader Everett M. Kirksen. "Immense dedication to the nation," said Democratic leader Mike Mansfield. They were speaking in praise Thursday of Sen. Richard B. Russell on his 90 years of continued service in the Senate.

No. It's a party of American tourists heading for Petra, an ancient caravan city hewn from solid, rose-colored rock.

WICHITA (AP) — The Kansas Turnpike Authority was notified by Oklahoma highway officials today the 17-mile section of Interstate 35 northward from Perry, Okla., would be opened to traffic late Friday. The new highway line connects with the turnpike at the Kansas Oklahoma border. Interstate 35 follows the turnpike from Emporia south to the Oklahoma line. The opening will provide four- lane highway from Purcell, Okla., to Excelsior Springs, Mo., a distance of 425 miles, by use of the turnpike from the Oklahoma line to Kansas City. Blarney Anyone? EMMETSBURG, Iowa (AP)They've started manufacturing blarney again and you can buy a can today. The Chamber of Commerce of this northern Iowa community is getting ready for its annual St. Patrick's Day parade and celebration. The blarney is packed in orange juice cans wrapped in green and white bunting. Included in the first shipment was a case for President Kennedy —O'Kennedy for the occasion. Or maybe the chamber announcement is just so much blarney. The blarney they're putting cans is air.

"Tourists are reaching out for new places, beyond Europe, and the Middle East has a great deal to offer," says one travel expert. "It has an additional appeal as a place that not too many people have seen." Arab governments are aware of the profits tourists can bring. But most still have much to learn about attracting visitors and looking after them once they arrive. Iraq, with its suspicion of foreigners and cameras — taking a picture of Babylon or Baghdad requires a police permit—has wiped itself out of the tourist guidebooks. Saudi Arabia admits Moslem pil- grarns to Mecca, but a Christian tourist rarely gets into the country. Jordon, however, is conducting a sophisticated campaign to swell the stream of visitors to the Holy Land. This year the campaign brought 210,000 tourists to Jerusalem— which is divided between Jordan and Israel — to Bethlehem, the Dead Sea and Petra. The number has more than doubled in three years. Tourists watching the glass blowers of Hebron, swimming in the Dead Sea or strolling through Jerusalem's medieval streets can stay in new hotels and guest houses or refurbished old ones. They can speed from Christ's birthplace to a desert camp on new roads, or plunge into swimming pools in places where running water was unknown a few years ago. Army engineers are helping re- store the ruins of antiquity mat litter the desert. Amman's little airport can handle the largest jets. An American public relations specialist in Beirut makes his suggestions directly to King Hussein. Israel attracts Jewish tourists from all over the world, yet in the past three years one-third of all visitors were Christians visiting Nazareth, Tourism has been rising steadily and 185,000 visitors are expected this year to wander among biblical scenes and study the busy new life of modern Israel. Lebanon has the historic city of Byblos, the famed cedars, the only skiing in the Middle East, Baalbeck and its festival, a Riviera-style gambling casino, excellent hotels and restaurants, beaches, scenery and climate that equal the French Riviera, but the country has done almost nothing to develop resorts to take adva-- tage of them.
