The Metropolitan Board of Edu- calion started ii by barring teachers shorter than five feet. The ban goes into effect next school year, but not without howls of anguish from tiny teachers, the restion . .. . . . nisccnt of Britain's imperialism in the reign of Queen Victoria. This observer, former U. S. Sen.-.. William Benton of Connecticut, quotes ah experienced European diplomat to till effect- -that the Hussians learned a lesson from Victoria's celebrated Prime Minister. Disraeli, who combined politics wiih capital investment to establish British influence in the Mid- rilo East. Disraeli in 1817 put up the cash t 0 buy Egyptian shares in the Suez Canal.

The same source regards Syria as a critical Middle East soft spot under Soviet political attack. Benton, who was In Moscow recently as publisher of the Encyclopedia Brittanica. talked to many Western diplomats In the Soviet Union and the satellit countries of Eastern Europe. "The Russian foreign economic policy Is dynamic," a diplomat told Benton. "It is very appealing to peoples like the Egyptians and Indians who are seeking to industrialize. Further, the Russians can export capital without having to justify such exports to their taxpayers. This gives them a big advantage in working out these big- time deals." major newspapers, students H> teachers' .schools and one woman Diet Parliament member, herself today'*] i ormer Tokyo teacher, equipm-ntl The D iet member, Mrs. Haneko Takaria, is 4 feet 10. The metropolitan government section said it put the ban on tiny teachers because Japanese boys and yirls are growing bigger all the time and the teachers find it hard to control them if they are too small. They also said the little teachers would be handicapped in event of a fire, earthquake or other emergency, which calls for taking charge of students and,leading them to safety. Another reason is that larger students have had trouble locating short teachers while on group school outings — an essential part, of the education system here. Students who couldn't find the'teacher were straying off and getting lost. And. the officials added, teachers under five feet cannot reach the top of the blackboards. The newspaper Asahi, Japan's largest, attacked the ban and said: "It is inhumane to treat short women as though they were physically handicapped." et pocket exploded, ricocheted off his chest and entered his left arm.
