Stresses School Need One of the t h i n g s which the career day stresses and em- phnsizi. 1 !; in our state is ihe groat need for v o c a t i o n a l t r a i n i n g or for some trade schools. M a n y nf the .students who complete h i g h school can not £0 lo college, They do not have the f u n d s and a.s yet we haven't provided scholarships for t h e m . We can provide them for others but not our own. · » There arc s t u d e n t s who complete J u n i o r high school b u t who do not go on to high .school. They have a b n u L reached the end of the row in l e a r n i n g t h i n g s out of hooks. They * * j u s t aren't interested and f r e q u e n t l y can't learn any more l JSngUsh, Ilistnj-y, M a t h e m a t i c s and other subjects t a u g h t in high .school. They often times do h a v e special talents and special ability a l o n g v a r i o u s vocations or trades. Some of them would m a k e carpenters; they xvould m a k e good m a c h i n i s t s ; ft ood tin s m i t h s ; f i n e a u t o mechanics; good electricians, but they just can not t a k e on any more education. H u t we haven't provided this t r a i n i n g in our high schools, in our colleges or in special schools. Thore are states w h i c h have set up trade schools. We know one state w h i c h started w i t h some f i v e trade schools. This n u m b e r has been doubled. They leach complete bookkeeping, a c c o u n t i n g , typing and secretarial work. They have ·.';· a complete course of i n s t r u c t i u n then in electrical Work, ma- c h i n e shop, a u t o mechanics, t i n - s m i t h work, w e l d i n g and other courses as t h e y are needed. Colleges w h i c h h a v e f r c c m e n t l y offered trade school work have found a lack of interest because those t a k i n g this work .do not feel they lit i n t o the campus l i f e w i t h regular college students. And while we spend a great deal of lime t a l k i n g about j u n i o r colleges, adding new courses to our state schools, we liavcMi't. given a t h o u g h t to lhal student who is not f i t t e d men- i a l l y lo secure or a c q u i r e a college education. , Up lo now we have ignored him or forgotten h i m . Instead of creating more colleges or j u n i o r colleges we need a.s .'.i.stato to creale one or two t r a d e schools or v o c a t i o n a l schools where who can not go on to college can learn a voca- t i o n and where they can q u a l i f y and f i t themselves for a trade.

The committee was organized for the development of water-land resources' in eight .states in the basin area. Short Speaks John A. Short, field representative of the Secretary of Agriculture, told the group "this is the first time Congress has made arrangements for .an agriculture program to be planned at the same lime as the engineering phase of a river development," Short pointed out to the group that the Arknnsas-RecMVhitc Rivers Basin planning program involves an area comprising one- eleventh of the nation,'or approximately 180,000,000 acres. Me also stressed the importance and cooperation by all state and federal agencies, including technical personnel. \ V i ( l i i n jtiiKin About one-fouiUi of Now Mexico --the northeastern section of the state--lie:; within the basin area.
