By RUTH LEE (tkhool Corrnpumkut) An adequate, supervised physical ducatlon program Is Just as im- ortant lor elementary as lor .fun- in high and high school children. This is a firm conviction held by •a B. Green, one of Junior High's ew teachers, who plans to set up uch a program in the Hlythevllle iementary schools during the next i lonth or so. Teaching five, seventh grade scl- nce classes at Junior High doe» i ot allow him much time for this ctlvity. but by obtaining the co- peratlon of the elementary leach- rs, he feels each school will be noro than able to work out an or- anized and supervised 'program. Mr. Green feels that of all ages, ears six through 12 are the most mportant for developing correct wsture, acceptable manners, and ood health habits—all of which hould be the primary gcals of systematic physical education within he school curriculum. Need Added Half Hour In addition to their reguhir play periods, primary children should bc+- jermltted at least 30 minutes daily j or supervised play, with emphasis upon running and jumping, he (eels. Polk dancing of the type requiring hese activities is e.ssiccially desira- jle for this level, one reason for his being the children's wllling- 1C55 to participate. The idea of physical education as something to "suffer through" has lot vanished from the minds of »tudents, teachers and parents, he says, but feels this Is oils reason for arranging an attractive, worthwhile program. In grades four through six, stress should be placed uiwn team games such" as dodgebiill, klckball, line soccer and others which provide opportunities for cooperation with other people and stricter coordination. Folk dancing in mixed groups and planned with special attention to variety is also an excellent activity for. this level, lie believes. Making such a program work will necessitate close cooperation from the classroom teacher, he realizes, out feels sure that each Instructor Is already aware ol the significance of physical education in the elementary system. Would Assist Teacher His part of the work will be providing EI handbook for each teacher, assisting her In setting up a program for licr room, and serving as consultant throughout the year. Physical education Is not Just a sideline with Mr. Green, a fact which his master ot science degree in physical education from the University of Tennessee will henr out. During his year tit the University, he held a graduate fellowship which provided him an opportunity to set up a physical education program in the Knoxvllle elementary schools. Green is a native Arkansan who claims Thornton as his hometown. In addition to his master's degree, he holds a bachelor of science engineering ' from Henderson State ."Teachers College where he played .football, basketball • and track. He "attended Arkansas Tech for junior college after graduating In 1945 from Thornton High School where he lettered In basketball nnd track- In June, 1945, he entered the Army, received his bnslc training in Texns', and later went to Germany as a communications sergeant. lu BIythevllle, the Greens reside at 1033 Chlckasawba and are mem bcrs of First Methodist Church.
