Training Ts Innovation 'Hie term "distributive education" is a technical expression for an innovation in the American high school to provide boys and girls practical Job (raining and related Instruction that will prepare them lor employment ami advancement in their chosen occupations. The program la open primarily to Juniors and seniors 1C years of age (or nearly 16), but sophomores may take the training with the consent ot the high school principal and coordinator. The DE or DO student, as he becomes known at the high school, follows a unique schedule—train- Ing on the job for half of each day and attendance at school the other half. The Job is secured by the coordinator who visits each student on his job at least once a month.,- This .visit proldes the coordinator and employer an oppor- tunity to become better acquainted and serves as a check on Ihe students' work as well. Unique also Is the right wont tor the course of study followed by these students. Their courses Include those required by the school for graduation as well as general subjects related Ui occupation education such as business mathematics, vocational English and salesmanship. In addition, each student .spends at least one hour at school studying about his parlicl- lar occupation. Comes Close tu Goal Mr. Dawson, In his distributive education classes, comes about as close to that m\]ch-to-lje-dcsircd goal of individual instruction as it Is possible In a large public school. Each student has a different Job. each follows a course or study worked out Just for him. each studies a separate text in his occupational study and each student receives the attention of the coordinator us well as that of his employer. Frank Hood ant) Hobby JlcDanlcl. . .al Meyers Halury The distributive education program, Instituted In ISlythevllle High School In IWG, was set up prl- madly for students who do not expect to go to college. At the same time, however, educators have recognized the fact that this training may offer great advantages to those students who do (jlan to go on to higbcr education, Anyone who has ever been connected In any way with the program will agree that the practical benefits of such a program arc numerous from the .standpoint of the community, the school, nnd the student Ixxly"-- the employer, the student and the teacher. Many young persons seeking jobs lor the first time have been caught In the vicious cycle: "No experience, no Job; no Job. no experience." The distributive education program In the high school alms to provide a, job which will offer the expcrienr.n that will equip the student to fit Into at least one occupational niche after graduation. Mr. Dawson C. of C. Advocates Military Training WASHINGTON, Nov. 27. (/P) — The U.S. Chamber ot Commerce today urged "earlier possible enactment" of a universal millU.ry train- Ing program. Such a program, the Chamber said in a statement, should become effective "as soon as manpower is made available by reason or any future diminishing requirements of selective service." It also proposed establishment ol civil defense regional offices and training facilities, and a review ol the nation's program for stockpiling critical materials.

The Mlnhtry of Information said 'Doubted' Hadacol Would Help His Aches and Pains- Can't Praise It Enough Now His Condition Due to Lack of Vitamins B,, B 2 , Iron and Niacin Mr. James C. Greene, n newspaper advertising account executive, lives at RKD 3, Charleston, West Virginia. Just look at Mr. Greene's keen eyes. You can tell Mr. Greene Is a man who Is hard to convince until something Is really proven to him. But let us have Mr. Greene tell his experience in his own words. "For nuite some time I suf- f fered from nangtng aches and pains and then was told by neighbors and friends about HADACOI-. After taking HADA- COL for n. short while, the pains disappeared. "My work demands steady nerves and accuracy, and those pains hampered me a great deal. I was skeptical of the claims made by my friends who arc using HADACOL. I went to a drugstore and got a bottle. To my delight,, HADACOL went right to work and the shooting pains left my body. I can vouch for everything the advertisements say about HADACOL, and you can put mo on the list ol those who say only good things about HADACOL." He,Tleve.s the Causo of Such I>(tflr1oncy Tains nmj Arlies Don't be satisfied with symptomatic relief because HADACOL makes It possible to relieve the REAL CAUSE of such aches and pains when due to deficiencies of Vitamins U,, 1J 2 , Iron and Niacin In the system. AND LISTEN TO THIS! Continued use of this wonderfu! new HADACOL helps keep such tormenting pains and aches from returning. So if you are one of those peo- pla who have been 'doubting' HADACOL would help your condition — why not profit by Mr. Greene's happy experience — start taking HADACOL at once — yon owe it to yourself — you owe it uour latnilv. James O. Greene Why IIADACOI. Comes In Special Liquid Korrn The precious Vitamins and Minerals of HADACOL come In special liritdd form so that they are easily absorbed and assimilated by the blood. A big Improvement Is often noticed within a few days' time. Many doctors recommend HADACOL. They lake It thcm- selvcsand advise It for Ihclr families. What better proof can you ask of HADACOL'S efficiency? So be fair to yourself! If you have such deficiencies why go around feeling half alive — a burden to others — when you can get this great HADACOL at any drugstore. Remember, 11 A l-\ * /"'I'M Mi.r.L 1 1_ _.
