(14SQN ON EDUCATION Teachers Must Improve Yearly If A _T \J*16AM t?*t fl • l^__ 1 J - . il . .. . - _ . By Leslie J. Nason, Ed. D. University of Southern Calif. All 50 state legislatures and more than 1,100 Institutions have a hand In controlling the training of teachers. With so many agencies Involved, It is not surprising that suggested changes in the curricula of schools of education arouse loud debates. Pressures for improvement are great since it has become increasingly evident that education is the prime factor not only m the future of our children, but, also in the economy of our country. These pressures are bringing about change. A recent survey found alt but one of 269 colleges questioned have changed their teacher-preparation programs since 1960. The general trends are toward increased time devoted to student teaching; reduced requirements in general education; increased courses in subjects to be taught; and more selective admissions policies. These changes are for the bet(CP. Increased background in the subject he will teach makes the teacher eligible for graduate study in his own field. This will tention that the arts and skills of teaching are best acquired on the job. The process la extended. It is while actually teaching in the classroom, meet- ng the same series of problems semester after semester, that the teacher has the best opportunity for growth. Some schools, like the University of Southern California, which spread practice-teaching over two semesters, give the student-teacher a double chance to grasp the complex procedures. Others give the prospective teacher some grasp of all this through observation programs prior to practice teaching. Selecting effective techniques of discipline, choosing methods to meet the spread of background and comprehension on the part of the students, programming materials so that all students in the group can progress, are procedures that must, be thought out for each new class. The first year of regular leaching is still the most difficult, since now, for the first time, the teacher takes the entire responsibility for a class and must proceed without the DON'T TAKE MY WO!?C?...

The League of New York Theaters, trade association of managers, set up two special committees for the self-improvement project. One is to work out precise rules for members to follow in production of plays. The other is exploring the possibilities of improved control over ticket distribution. The league action follows an inquj'ry by the state attorney general's office into alleged sharp practices and ticket scalping by some theatrical interests. ! 2620 Gen. Travis, girl, Mary Fay, May 18.

WASHINGTON (APi - The United States presumably is beginning revision of its strategic target list for Red Asia as the time approaches for new, long- range missiles to come into the active arsenal. It is coincidental, but nevertheless important, that this occurs as Ihe United States is confronted with deepening danger in Laos and growing difficulties in Viet Nam— with the basic source of trouble in Red China. Revision of target lists to reassign targets as new or addi- i tional lon^-range missiles and aircraft become available is customary. This is done by the Joint Strategic Target Planning Group, an Air Force-Navy or- ganixation, at the Omaha headquarters of ihe Strategic Air Command. Two developments now dictate , i revision of the target plan list i , for the Eastern Hemisphere: 1 By the end of thi.-> year, a squadron of Polaris missile submarines will be deolojed in the j far \veMt-ni Paciiic. 2 By the .'alter hall of next veai !'K- A'i Fiii; i- e.\iJt-<:t.> the Uif new Minutemaji Ji M ;:• '. ; .t! .va i-<tic mis ij ije jjni.ifl in launchii! • i '!:•- " • '.

Nasser Promised New Soviet Loan CAIRO (AP)--Soviel Premier Khrushchev ended a 17-day visit to Egypt today after warming up the farewell with a prom- : ise of a $277 million loan for President Gamal Abdel Nasser's second five-year plan. ! In return,' Nasser gave Khrti i shchev a wholehearted endorse! ment of Soviet foreign policy, including the gremlin's views on i peaceful coexistence. 1 A joint communique by the i two leaders placed the Egyp- ' lians squarely behind the Soviets in Ihe struggle between Peking j and Moscow for influence in Africa's new nations. Cheering workers, given n ! half holiday, jammed the airport I for Khrushchev's departure, and upwards of 2,000 (coops and se- ;curily men were on hand. Nas- 1 ser gave his guest a warm cm- brace. A 21-gun salute boomed out as HIP Soviet leader waved | before entering his airliner. Khrushchev's departure was delayed an hour raid a half, but, the reason was not announced. ;' The joint communique was made public affcr a final ban qucl Sunday night in the gardens of former Kins Kaiouk's luxurious Kubbah Palace.
