Kkho FTM Press Caldwell News-Tribune, Thursday, June 15,1907 -- AC YOU. YOUR CHILD AND SCHOOL Research Is Heeded to Answer Basic Questions By DAVID NYDICK UP! Education Specialist Parents are naturally most Interested in those things which directly affect their children. It Is also Important to consider some of the broad issues which affect education in general. Obviously, these issues eventually affect each individual child. There is a major revolution on be scene. Extensive interest and money is being directed towards the education of preschool and primary grade children. There is a great deal of evidence that these are the most productive years In the devcloiiment of social and academic attitudes. It is felt that these are the years which may determine the child's future success or failure. The result is that a great deal of money is being poured into programs for children at the pre-school and primary school levels. The programs seem to be designed around the iiteas that children need a variety of experiences arid self-confidence U they are going to be successful students. There are some important questions which should be answered regarding these programs. There is little doubt that practically any program will have some value if it provides many rich experiences and ojjportunitities for children to successfully participate. The real questions are more basic and will need well organized research to find the answers. What are the real differences Mween the children who learn with relative ease and those who have difficulties? Before we can successfully meet the needs of children from disadvantaged homes and areas, we must identify the specific things which are lacking. A connected question which must be answered is whether or not the school structure and instruction is the cause of the problem. All children have experiences regardless of their family background. The child who comes from a poor home in a city slum has experiences which the child from a middle class suburban home may never have. Perhaps the problem develops when both of these children arrive at a school and the program is planned for the middle class child. The books include stories about events and things which a city child may never have seen. The arithmetic problems concern things which the city child cannot picture in his mind because he has never seen them. Maybe the answer to many problems of learning can be solved by new methods of instruction. It appears that the present trend is to give additional instruction similar to that which has always been given. If advantage is to be taken of the present interest and money, there is a need for some good research programs to find answers to these and other basic questions. This movement in education has been coming for a long time. We cannot afford to waste it. Six-Day War Subject of Book NEW YORK (UPI-United Press International and the American Heritage Publishing Co. have announced that they will collaborate in the publication of a book on Israel's six- day blitz war with the Arabs.

CLASSIFIEDS GET RESULTS THC FARM fRONT Farm Assets Total Reaches Record By LARRY D. HATFIELD .WASHINGTON (UPI)-Total farm assets reached a new high during 1966 at the same time farm debt expanded by a record amount, according to a new Agricultural Financial Review. The Review, which will be part of the "Balance Sheet of Agriculture, 1967" to be published later this year by the Agriculture Department, showed that total farm assets reached a record $273 billion as of Jan. 1, 1967. The figure represents an in- crease of $18.3 billion or 7 per cent over the year before. The report says (hat while farm debt increased considerably, the rise was much smaller than the increase in the value of assets, resulting in an estimated $14 billion gain in equities. Farm real estate assets, representing 67 per cent of total farm assets, increased $13.1 million in 1966, the report said. They accounted for 72 per cent of the total estimated 1966 increase in farm assets. On the liability side in a year marked by sharply rising interest rates, the real estate debt, representing 51 per cent of total farm debt, increased $2.3 million or 55 per cent of Farm Receipts WASHINGTON HJFI--The Bureau of the Census, in its new "Pocket Data Book," reports receipts from farm marketing in 1965 amounted to $39 billion, a rise of 6 per cent over 1964 and 15 per cent over I960. the estimated increase in the total debt. The total farm debt, not counting loans made by the commodity Credit Corporation to farmers, expanded a record $4.7 billion. The 12 per cent increase was due to farmers purchasing goods, along with con- tinned improvements on their farms. The largest squid ever cap- lured measured 57 feet in length, of which 35 feet were lentacles. Idaho Two fo Attend VFW Meeting PARMA -- Commander Day E.
