She points out that there is not a one-to-one relationship between readers and blind slu- dents. "A reader may he able to read two hours a week, but a student may need four or five hours of reading. So, we have to have more readers t h a n !,, .obtained too slowly to be of use. 1. ." One of the solutions to the problem is the use of readers, -.persons who read the material 'aloud to the blind student. .... The University of Northern ··'"·Colorado has such a program, State up revenue million work, just like anyone else," she said." The readers also help UNC's 20 visually handicapped students with such things as filling out forms required by the university and reading any other printed materials needed lo get through life.

The bill received little debate even though discussion on Ihe makeup of the commission has been discussed on and off Ihe House floor for several weeks. One week ago Ihe chairman of the commission, Rep. Floyd Sack, R-Lakewood, submitted his resignation after coming under criticism by other legislators who said he was using his position as chairman to political advantage. Sack himself introduced a bill that would prohibit legislators as chairman of Ihe commission but that was_followed by_a measure sponsored by Rep. Michael Strang, R-Carbondale, which would bar (hem from commission service entirely. Strang's bill would set up a IG-member commission, eight of them from the metropolitan Denver area and eight from other sections of the state. Their terms would expire in 1977.. Strang said having a legisla-' tor on the commission "creates an almost impossible situation," where he has lo choose among communities in awarding various centennial-bicentennial projects.. Rep. Charles "Bud" Edmonds, R-Manitou Springs, told house members he was one of those originally selected to organize the commission. RAY LARSON AUCTIONS ··:· Sat., April 14 -- 1:30 p.m. ·!

The group first went by UNC bus to the Denver Art Museum to view the Denver junior schools' art exhibit. Mrs. Maren Welsh, UNC instructor who arranged for the trip said, "It was 1 very worthwhile. Each of us gained in our own way. The exposure was good for both studio - and education-oriented faculty. These schools accept our teachers, and for that reason we need to know what goes on when we have the teachers as students." Since many of Colorado's thousand art teachers have been trained at U N C , the faculty wished to see at first hand the problems of teachers in public schools. Dr. G. Joseph Moody, UNC associate professor, reinforced the enthusiasm, "In addition to the schools having much to learn from universities, teacher training institutions have much to learn from the schools. Mrs. Jeannette Lacey, supervisor of art programs for 18 Denver junior high and 12 senior high schools, arranged the visits. "Young Art," a recent book written by Mrs. Lacey and published by Reinhold Press, is being used as an instruclional system by most of the teachers observed. The UNC visitors agreed that the work produced by the students as a whole was of very impressive quality and sophistication. Mrs. Tia Canada at Gove said she had found Mrs. Lacey's system produced good results in student response over a wide range of abilities. The visitors questioned some of her students and found them clearly enthusiastic about the classes. Mrs. Lacey emphasized that her program is not based on the response of a few talented children, but functions in surroundings of drastic school problems and among children with severe learning difficulties. She stresses human relationships as the key to teaching success. "Teacher training institutions must provide their trainees with earlier classroom contacts and with more experiences to prepare them for actual school situations," said Mrs. Paulette Tilden of Hill, in remarking on the need for teachers to understand the characteristics of junior high. students. She showed prints, drawings and designs produced by her students as pilot studies for art'units. Mrs. Tilden also noted that a solid background in art studio courses, while essential, had not prepared her personally for the real problems of teaching. One teacher, Mrs. Alice Silverberg of Kepner, commented on the visit: It's a marvelous idea. Possibly we could arrange to exchange classes for a week sometime. Contacts like this one today between university and public school people are R step in the right direction. I think we need MAGELLAN On Sept. 20, 1519, Ferdinand Magellan set out with five ships to find a western passage to the Indies. more teachers who have been prepared to work w i t h youngsters in the classroom.

UNC faculty members who participated were: Paolo Barucchieri, Charles Blubaugh, William Cordiner, Pamela Durr, David Haas, Betty Johnson, R i c h a r d Luster, Frederick Myers, Joseph Moody, Michael N a u m e r , Maren Welsh, Herbert Schumacher and Hyun Shin. Other art teachers in the Denver schools visited included: Yvonne B r o w n . Douglas Dawson, Jean Black and Roy Klein. INTERIOR or EXTERIOR!
