I OTTAWA HERALD * P*g« Four Editorials Wednesday, May 1, 1003 Why Be Average? Though a consensus of OHS seniors would reveal student pride in the education they have received, a closer look at our high school structure shows a definite lack in instruction geared to individual ability. Our system is built for the majority, the mediocre students, while fast-learners and slow learners are being relatively by-passed. It is no secret that a pupil of high potential can be held back by a class full Of students who simply do not have the ability to assimilate information, Another less commonly known fact is that there is a significant number of senior high students that probably have a reading level below that of a sixth grader. Yet, beyond the grade schools of Ottawa, there is no allowance made for these different learning capabilities. Keeping up with the Joneses is not to be laughed at where education is concerned. To the contrary, in order to fulfill its obligation to its young peonlc, our community must be sure that Ottawa's educational system is kept up to par with those of the area. Remedial instruction Is a field common to many area schools. Highland Park High School has a small class of all the extremely slow- learners which is run similarly to a grade school class. Students are kept in the same room all day under the supervision of the same teacher, a specially qualified instructor. Also, provisions are made for speech correction and specialized remedial reading laboratories. • The student is not required to take a full schedule of six class hours. Instead, he ,is, enrolled in a minimum of courses which are within his scope. He learns to spell, speak, write, and to organize his thoughts. In such a program, slow-learners have been known to accomplish enough work in one year to allow them to enroll in regular classes the next year: This And That by jph But what about the exceptional student? In a time when third and fourth graders are learning algebra and foreign languages, there is no time to allow the fast-learner to loaf through his high school years. At Shawnee Mission, a program of advanced standing has been in use for sometime. Seniors who have consistently made excellent grades in all their classes are allowed to enroll in such courses as calculus, analytical geometry, and Russian under the instruction of college professors. When they graduate, the students carry with their diplomas college credits which are transferrable to the college they choose to attend. Other student who may wish to study subjects not offered by the advanced standing program may enroll in four class hours and two hours of research. The research student is assigned a cubicle in the library in which he may keep any books or material from which he may wish to learn. Of course, these research libraries are no two hundred foot square, poorly supplied libraries such as ours. There are endless other cases of advanced and remedial instruction to be cited. Why aren't the less capable students at Ottawa provided this chance to be productive and successful in their high school? Why aren't Ottawa's bright students given the opportunity to excel and get the jump on other young people with whom they will have to compete? Is it because the community cannot afford education geared to individual student ability? Ottawan's can not afford not to give their young people this special attention. The twentieth century stresses individuality. There is no time or place for mediocrity in education. — A.M. Laff-A-Day e Kln» FMtoru Symll«ft, Int, 1*1.

Television Log Channel 4, NBC Channels 5-13, CBS Channel 9, ABC Helps Indian Newspapers JPH DELHI, India - So I've doubled back to Delhi for a few days. Purpose is to take pnrt in a short, working conference in which hopefully the publishers of a dozen small, nntive language neM'spapers 'will learn how to become more effective publishers. Except for being drier, dustier, nnd 20 degrees hotter, Delhi seems unchanged from when I left six weeks or so ago. The evenings, however, still are pleasant, and my friends here comfort me by saying that if I want to know what heat really is, I should stay until June, Over my head is the roof of the old Hotel Imperial, which is greatly to be preferred over the newer and larger Ashoka. The Ashoka is neo-Hilton without HiJ- ton knowhow. The Imperial is Victorian British in its appointments and its atmosphere. Its ceilings are high, its bathtubs big enough for Col. Blimps, and it has excellent service once you can establish communication with bolowstairs through your ancient room telephone. The Imperial has a gigantic Sikh doorman with a turban, sweeping mustache, spread-eagle beard, winning smile, and magnificent uniform. It has a large verandah facing an English lnwn and garden where tea is served decorously in the late afternoon. It has a Tavern where ns good a western-type dinner as can be found in the city is served to the draggy music of an orchestra. Tavern or not, however, not so much as a wet martini is served in it. The local law does not permit intoxicants to be served in public places. They will be brought promptly to one's room on a 24-hour basis, however. Except on the two dry days of Die week. The peculiarity of the prohibitory laws, as they vary from distinct to district, would be enough to fill n book. And if anyone Auld Lang S)Tie 25 YEARS AGO Ed Lister and Jake Shinn captained two of the teams of business men participating in a milking contest at a Guernsey show in Ottawa. Lister's team won. Irvin Malolt placed second and Mrs. Malott placed third in an archery tournament at Kansas City. Mrs. W. C. Briles of 7 miles east of Ottawa brought to the Herald office for display a turkey egg that was flat on one end. 50 YEARS AGO Mrs, Lucy J. Latimer, 118 Maple, observed her 84th birthday. She had lived in Uie same block in Ottawa for 40 years. officials were urged to pave Oak Street from 3rd to 6th Streets. C. H, Trask of 623 Powhattan fell from a platform at the canning factory and was stunned. He W$s at work helping load the factory machinery for shipment to Garnett where it was to be lo- bothered to write it, it would be a diverting book, indeed. Outside (ho Ashoka there is nothing to do but cnll a taxi. Outside the Imperial is the Janpath. The Janpath is a principal street leading down to Connaught Place, three blocks away. Connaught Plnce is n circular park which must measure 500 yards across and which is charmingly lined with identical, high, white, pillard, two - story structures, built to privide a nicely shaded arcade on which the best shops face. The Place is Delhi's Fifth Avenue, But it is not even necessary to walk to the Place (o buy almost anything one could wish and an incredible number of things for which one has no use. They are offered in a row of tiny shops, by peddlers pushing carts or offering their wares on trays suspended by cords strung around their necks, and from selections spread out on the bare ground under the trees. There are saris, suits, scarves, shirts, and ice cream sodas. Shoe shines for two cents, by boys who tug at your sleeve for a block begging for your patronage, and ice water from unwashed glasses at one-tenth that price. Souvenirs made by refugees from Tibet, Second hand, or from the looks of them more likely tenth-hand, cars. There arc elephants and idols in all sizes in choice of ivory, wood, or brass. Betel nuts wrapped in green leaves painted with lime which, when chewed, turn the saliva blood red. Native art objects of the sort women tourists, particularly in groups, dote on. Paperbacks of the type that are periodically confiscated from newsstands at home. There is jewelry, junk, jade, joss, and even jam to be bought on the Janpath, Prayer For Today Ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you. (Acts 1:8). PRAYER: Dear Father, we thank Thee for the inspiration of the lives of the early Christians. We pray for zeal and oneness of purpose such as were demonstrated by those in the early church. In Jesus' name. Amen. Ottawa Herald 1962 FIRST IN KANSAS Published daily except Sunday and Holidays. Second class postage at Ottawa, Kansas. Robert B. VVellington ......

DAIRY QUEEN Now Has Fresh Lime SLUSH also Orange - Grape - Cherry Try It Now! To Your Good Health "Safe" Pressure Varies Dr. Molncr By DR. JOSEPH G. MOLNER Dear Dr. Molner: Is it safe for blood pressure to go above 150. What is normal for a woman of 647-V.D. It is very hard — impossible, in fact — to define a "normal" or "safe" blood pressure because too many things affect it. Fifty miles an hour may be a safe driving speed. But not in heavey traffic, not for a poor driver, not if the car has a flat tire, and not in a fop. Age, build, temperament and many other elements make a difference in safe blood pressure. However, other things being equal, ISO would be quite safe for a woman of 64. In fact, 160 or 170 would not be out of line—if. You see (or you will if you look at the way your doctor records blood pressure) that the pressure isn't just one number. It's two. It will be written down as J 50-100, or some such figure that looks like a fraction but isn't. The first (and always higher) number is (he "pumping" or systolic pressure. The lower number is the "resting" or diastolic pressure. Your blnod pressure never goes down to zero except in shoe):. Your Hoorl H-n« flowinp nil ihe time, with the thrust of the heartbeat behind it, and it keeps flowing, but under less pressure, between heartbeats. If the resting pressure is moderate, the pumping pressure can be higher and yet be tolerated quite well. If Die resting pressure is too high, then the pumping pressure puts more strain on the system. That is one of the reasons why it is impossible to specify any particular pressure as normal. But assuming that your resting pressure is in line, there's no reason to be worried, at your age, over a pressure of 150 or even higher. Dear Dr. Molner: What could cause my toenails to turn dark?-M. N. It depends on what you mean by dark. A gen- oral dusky blueness of nails can accompany .heart and lung disease. Or faulty circulation. Laxative* containing phenolphthalem can cause it. Also (Rarer) mercury or arsenic poisoning. Or (much more common) fungus infections. Or even dye from stockings. Dear Dr. Molner: The doctor discovered that our eight-year-old boy's testicles are not in normal position, and that our four-year-old boys has one that is withdrawn. Both are being given hormone shots. Since I have heard rumors thaf such medication can make boys effeminate, I'm doubly worried. The doctor advises surgery if (he shots don't help. I would appreciate your opinion. — MRS. E. S. This condition is known as cryptorchism or un- descended tcstes. Hormones frequently correct if. If not, then surgery is indicated. The problem should not be neglected because testicles if left underscended can become diseased. You have some leeway to wait and see, especially with the younger boy. The surgery is usually performed between (he ages of six and 12. Your worry that the hormones mie;ht make the boys effeminate is without foundation. Much heart trouble is preventable. Write to Dr. Molner, Box 158, Dundee, 111., for your copy of his booklet, "How To Take Care of Your Heart," enclosing a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope and 20 cents in coin to cover cost of printing and handling. Trees Lure Squirrels With 35 walnut trees in one's yard, it seems a flock of squirrels could almost store up enough little round morsels to last through a winter and well iinto the next season. But maybe not. Our yard has a total of 35 such trees in it, and there's a large meadow behind the house that truly is a squirrel's paradise. • Last fall when the nuts began to fall, we had just moved into our present home. There was plenty to do without picking up Greeley News Name New Faculty By MRS.

Through last fall the furry sex- Mid Week Glance By DICK CRAWFORD tet could be seen almost anytime carrying nuts to hollows in trees and burying them in little holes all over the place. AH through the winter every day was a banquet day. As the tree hollows became more hollow with the daily feasts, fluffy little piles of snow appeared on the level white-covered ground speckled with dirt where the squirrels had dug up a well-hidden nut. Near the no longer secret nut hole would be a trail of tiny tracks, or an imprint in the snow of a little rump and tail with nutshells all around.

As a matter of fact, they must have eaten too well, because now one old board- in our back porch has become a delicacy.
