NEEDED: A board, a peg or nail, some paper-backed foil, glue. DO THIS: Place the nail or peg in the board, cut a strip out of the foil, glue the end of the strip to the peg, then wind the foil around the peg. WHAT HAPPENS: A hygrometer is an instrument to measure the percentage of mofs- ture in the air. The paper in the strip wilr absorb moisture, if it is not moisture-resistant, and will expand. The foil remains the same length because it does not absorb mositure, but the paper will force the foil to bend, as it absorbes moisture. As moisture in the air decreases, the paper will contract, forcing the foil to bend back again. © 1976 Los Angeles Times Michael Monsees studied the Air Force mission, organization and customs and received instruction in human relations.

Law enforcement Explorer post sets car wash l«-iw Enforcement Explorer By MAKCIA WAI.FOHD UNC N U M S Service Intern "Hear, see and do" is the way Kozema McKain described the automated touch-typing system used to teach typing at the U n i v e r s i t y of Northern Colorado Laboratory School. The system, developed by Random House, is under research for one year to test its effectiveness and efficiency. Classes started in September and are financed by a grant from the Stale Board for C o m m u n i t y Colleges and Occupational Education. Tlie students are from junior high and high schools in the Greeley area. Mrs. McKain, a vocational education instructor said the method uses a combination of media and allows each student to progress at his or her own rate. The students do not use books but look at colored films and listen to tapes. The films concentrate on speed and accuracy and I he tapes allow students to progress at their own pace. The alphabet keys on the typewriter are covered so the students will not look at their hands, she said. Mrs. K c K a i n said the students learn the keys quickJy then begin lo lype words and do projects such as setting up letters and typing memos. She said, "The company suggest a student could leant two years of typing in one year." But she said this might be a slight exaggeration. "Good students could learn that quickly. Most students have pretty positive feelings about the program. They like to work independently, but some aren't self-di.sriplinpd enough," she A U T O M A T E D I N S T R U C T I O N W O R K SHOP _ Mary Gardner, head of the business department at Grroley Central High School, t v p i - M d u r i n g t h e a u t o m a t e d i n s t r u c t i o n workshop held recently at the University of Northern Colorado.

This year they offered four sections with a total of 100 students. She said the system allows them to combine beginning and advanced students into the same classroom. "The sections are all full," she said. "The students had more flexibility in when they wanted to take it. "But wo can't say if it's a superior way to learn to type," she said. She said the students seem more confident to type by touch and that the films and tapes force them to respond at a certain speed so they learn the keys quickly. 53 Weld County children patients at CH in 1975 A total of 53 children form Weld County were seen as patients at The Children's Hospital in Denver in 1975, according to annual statistics recently released by the Hospital. Children's serves as a regional referral center for pedialric care throughout the Rocky Mountain area. In ad dition to the Colorado counties, patients are treated from I) surrounding states, and from as far away as West Virginia and California.
