"Most of my pupils look clean and we have few medical or dental problems," Miss Tomita related. "Our greatest problem is the language terrier between myself and the Mexican children. When we began at the first of the summer they could not speak English and I could not speak Spanish. "These pupils come from homes where the parents cannot read or write their own language. The children did not know what a book was and they could not get along with each other, many did not even have proper clothes to wear, snmc were without shoes. "These problems begin in the home where (he children receive very little personal attention or care. Al first they were shy and afraid. Through personal contact and love, the .Mexican students now speak English in complete sentences, they work well with others in small groups and now, amazingly, -- ttieylove back!" There are no actual subjects taught at the centers. "We watch every student carefully," Miss Tomita continued. "We let them conduct their own play activity and we watch each child in his learning and discovery process. "We touch them and many limes hold them to make sure they receive personal attention. They learn quickly and among other things are now able to brush their teeth, use eating utensils, and know the names of all the food we eat. "One of our most important items of equipment is a mirror. The children will stand in front of the mirror and realize that they are looking at themselves. Al home they receive very little personal attention, and here we want them to realize who they really are; through all of this we hope they will be able to adjust in the public school."
