Teachers Participating in a Guided Self-Analysis Program By Mrs. Cleo Tilton (Carroll Education Assn.) Beginning this month, the Carroll Education Association is participating in a pilot program sponsored by the Iowa Association of Classroom Teachers. This program, called Guided Self-Analysis, will involve 10 teachers each from Sioux City, Coon Rapids, and . Carroll. The only other schools participating in a similar study this year are the Davenport and Pleasant Valley Schools. Guided self-anialysis is designed for teacher improvement and is not a device by which the teacher can be evaluated by others. The end result will be better teaching techniques. The teacher films a teaching sequence in her room and this is then recorded to be played back through the video-tape recorder and monitor. By use of a coding system the teacher can then evaluate her teaching skills. Similar tapes are made and studied by the teacher, always keeping the first tape for comparison. The ten teachers from our association who are participating and learning the procedures of coding and recording will be asked to serve as instructors to either members of the C.E.A. next year. It will require extra time and effort for these teachers to be involved in such a program. This has been made possible by the support of our adminisfcra- 16 Times Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, Oct. 28, 1970 tors and school board. They have allowed the purchase of the video tapes and the three days' tim >3 throughout the year for the workshop instruction. They have co-operated with our association to make this program a real tool for the improvement of instruction. The volunteer participants from the C.E.A. are: Mr. James Albertson — high school mathematics Mrs. Pat Dearduff — high school English Mr. David N i e 1 a n d — high school remedial reading Mr. Leo Steffen — high school industrial arts Mr. Alvin Molitor -- jr. high mathematics Mrs. Wandla Throckmorton — jr. high social studies Mrs. Linda Larson — sixth grade Mrs. Anne Poland— fifth grade Mrs. Lenice Sorenson — fourth grade Mrs. Iola Akin — third grade This program of self-evaluation can be used successfully at all levels of instruction and in 'all subject areas. We asked our teachers to volunteer and were pleased that we filled our quota easily. The pilot program in Carroll will be under the direction of Mike Fleming. Executive Director of I.A.C.T., and a teach ing team trained by l.A.C.T. Mr. James Knott, high school English instructor, is presently the president-elect of Classroom Teachers, and 'has h e 1 p e d to promote interest in this program. This pilot program is just one way a teachers' association can be effective. We now have 74 members in the C.E.A. and this includes 6 teachers from Kuemper who are on our staff. We have as our goal the best education possible for the children of Carroll. The association through united efforts can make this a reality. We as teachers, take an interest in the o p e r a t i o n of our school, the community, politics, and improvements in our profession. This year we are unified which means that if a teacher belongs to the local association they then must join the state and national professional associations. The Iowa State Education Association has about 35,000 members and the National Education Association has nearly 1,200,000 members. These associations provide invaluable opportunities and benefits for the members. The teaching profession has come a long way since the days of the one-room school. We are trying to formulate modern schools for the modern child. This in a complex and ever changing society, is a challenging task and one that professional educators must deal with now to be successful teachers.

Still Has Hope By RALPH NOVAK NEW YORK (NEA) - As Harry Wilson's eyes look out through the broad window of his 38th-floor office in the United Nations Secretariat building and see the muddled skyline and murky air of New York, his mind looks out at the muddled past and murky future of the U.N. itself. "If I had wanted to be a big success or make a lot of money, I certainly wouldn't have come here," he says, sighing. "But it's a good job, an interesting job, and 1 do think we have achieved something in the last 25 years." "Harry Wilson" is a highly placed U.N. official (Wilson is not his real name). He is a top assistant to an undersecretary general, one of eight in the U.N. His career spans the 25 years of the organization — only a handful can match his experience in the world body. And only a few can speak with as much authority about its history and meaning. "This is a very frustrating job, partly because it's so difficult to get things done, partly because you're never allowed to say what you really think," he says. Wilson ended a stint in the British army in 1945, disgusted with what he had seen in the war determined nothing like it should ever happen again. "There was a great deal of idealism among those who worked for the U.N. in those early days," he recalls. "Everyone was anxious to believe that the U.N. would be an organization with teeth. It wasn't long, however, before events — Berlin, the beginning of the Cold War and then Korea — made many people a lot more cynical about what this organization could do." One of the problems, Wilson says, was that the U.N. had Times Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, Oct. 28, 1970 17 been "oversold." "There never has been a world government and there won't be one in our lifetimes," he says. "The U.N. has had to r e a 1 i z e it is operating under limitations imposed by the fact that it is an organization of sovereign states. It can only act when one of those states decides it is willing to give up a piece of its sovereignty, and a state will only make that decision when it genuinely wants something changed." Hampering the U.N.'s peacemaking attempts, Wilson contends, has been the m e m b e r countries' tendency to turn to the organization only in a crisis. "When everybody is scared stiff, and in a hopeless, bloody awful mess, they realize the U.N. is no longer the crashing bore they thought it was and are frightfully glad it's there," he says. "That happened with Suez in '56, Lebanon in '58, the Congo in '60, Cyprus in '64 and the India- Pakistan disputes in '65." Wilson counts those peacemaking ventures as successes for the U.N. But he sighs again and shakes his head when he talks about Vietnam, the Middle East and other problems the U.N. has not been able or allowed to solve. "I get the feeling that there are all these problems and not all that much time to find solutions while we're just nibbling at them," he says. "All of our failures just make me more convinced we need the organization but it's discouraging to see how small our available resources are compared with the problems we face." The absence of Communist China from the U.N. also worries Wilson. So does the organization's isolation from the rest of the world. "Not having Red China here makes it impossible for us to deal with a large number of problems we should confront, Vietnam not the least of them," he says. "And I'm worried that instead of being something new, the U.N. is only a prolongation of the old diplomatic scene. I have nothing against diplomats, but I think we should strive to include people from other walks of life. "Most of us have little contact with people outside the diplomatic circles — young people, for example — and I think it hampers us." "What is the U.N.'s future? "It will go on," Wilson says, shrugging and adding that its "great hope" is the Secretariat, the body of U.N. workers who work — in theory, at least — for the organizaition itself and not their native countries. "The Secretariat has to be an international civil service and has to be recognized as such, so that if we send an Arab or a Jew on a peace mission to the Middle East he will be accepted not as an Arab or Jew but a U.N. representative," he says. "When (Dag) Hammarskjold was secretary-general, the Secretariat began to assume more of an independent life of its own, but the member countries didn't like it and we never got the principle accepted." Whether or not the United Nations can become more than a sum of its parts — a sum that on any given issue includes minuses as well as pluses — it has, Wilson says, "a good record in view of the difficulties." "We are trying to control the excesses of an anarchic international society," Wilson says, trying hard and failing to avoid sounding like someone who believes that the world can be saved after all. "We are trying to provide a modicum of orderly procedure in the world. We are trying to make everyone a little more comfortable." Episcopalians to Hold Open House Nov. 1 Trinity Episcopal Church will observe Open House Sunday, Nov. 1, All Saints' Day, from 2 to 4 p.m., the Rev. Theodore H. Kampman, vicar of the church, announced Wednesday. Extensive improvements have been made in the church interior during the past eighteen months, and the congregation is anxious, Father Kampman said, to give its many good neighbors in the Carroll community an opportunity to see what has been accomplished. Along with the Open House, tea will be served in the undercroft by the women of the church. Explanations will be available of the worship of the Episcopal Church and the vestments of its clergy. The public is cordially invited to attend. Improvements, made under the direction of L. A. Smith, Warden, in cooperation with the B i s h o p's Committee, a local governing body, and the women ! of the church, working through the Guild, include recarpeting and redecorating the nave, new pews, and redecoration and new fixtures in the undercroft. Mrs. J. D. Moore is president of the Guild, which helped the improvement project both with funds and by mobilizing the women of the parish for work in the undercroft.

By CARLTON SMITH Will the growth funds ever grow again? A good many mutual fund investors—and potential investors—must be pondering this question. One clue to the answer could lie in what they've done in the strong market recovery that has been under way since the end of May. Have the growth funds outperformed the market, as growth funds are supposed to? Among the 50 top-performing funds in this period, 42 are growth funds. They have bested the market averages handsomely. Their average gain exceeds by 60 per cent the average of all shares traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Among the bottom 50 funds, again 40 are growth funds—and they are a different story. They not only failed to match the market's gain but averaged as a group a decline of a little more than 2 per cent. What does all this tell the consumer? The figures come from a study of the Arthur Lipper Corp., an institutional brokerage firm with many mutual funds as clients. Lipper computers click out a continuing performance analysis of more than 500 funds of all types. What's significant is how the growth funds have performed as a group, in relation to all funds. Lipper's computer printouts keep a running tally of the rank—from the No. 1 top performer to (for this particular" study) No. 463 at the bottom- based on each fund's performance for the year, to date. It's no secret that for all of 1969, and until June of this year, the growth funds took, with few exceptions, a terrible beating. They had settled down at the bottom of Lipper's performance- rank list. More than a dozen growth funds saw share values cut in half since the first of the year. Declines of 30-odd and 40-odd per cent were typical. On May 28 the market sank to its low point. During the next 16 weeks the New York Stock Exchange index climed 10.59 per cent. And during these same 16 weeks "the 50 top performing funds," Lipper comments, "recovered a substantial part of the losses they sustained in the first five months of 1970." The growth funds among them averaged a gain of more than 17 per cent. The bottom 50, of course, haven't recovered much of their earlier losses. But, for the most part, the growth funds on this list hadn't experienced quite such spectacular declines. It's the same old story. Growth funds tend to be volatile. They're either higher than the market—when it's up—or lower than the market, when it's down. The ones that have now bounced back up the most are, in general, those that dropped to the lowest depths when the bear was biting. These are known as the "good" growth funds during the upswings. Then there are the others, more cautious, that have smaMer losses in the declines and, as a rule, less spectacular gains when the market's swinging. As we've frequently observed, this is what makes picking a mutual fund a fairly exacting task. So that's what the performance data says. As for investors themselves, their view of the future of funds may be reflected in a report from DRI Research, Ltd., which keeps track of what's going on in 110 no-load funds. The number of share-holders in the no-loads has just passed one million—an increase of 44 per cent over June of last year. And while a lot of nervous people in the market have been selling, no-load investors brought about $479 million . worth of shares—some 182 per cent of redemptions. You'd harldy know we've been going through the worst bear market in 40 years. HALLOWEEN PROGRAM The first grade students at Maple River will present a Halloween program at 2 p.m. Thursday, under the direction of Mrs. Don Severin. Parents are invited to attend this program as part of the Education Week activities.
