10 - Section 1 A CHICAGO iJiiiU.NE, SUJNUAI, JUui i4, JLiki MADDY BLASTS EMPHASIS ON SCHOOL BANDS Interlochen Head Asks More Orchestras BY SHEILA WOLFE Dr. Joseph Maddy, founder and president of the National Music camp at Interl ochen, M i c h., criticized school TJCar band Programs P Moddr Sheriffs Police Training Program Graduates 25 Men yesterday and K- i zl'-1 school board I -v - ' .t"M members who promote them at the expense of ore h e s t r a training. Dr. Maddy, a pioneer in music education, said school bands now outnumber orches tras 30 to 1. "School board members are thinking of public relations, not good musical training," Dr, W 1 . aiaaay asserted, "iney are only giving half training." Should Have Both Schools should have both a band and an orchestra or just an orchestra, but not a band only, he said. Dr. Maddy said there are 1,400 symphony orchestras thruout the country because good amateur and professional musicians want to play great music. "What happens to all the kids in the school bands?" he asked. Dr. Maddy, 71, who founded the nationally renowned music camp 36 years ago, said his experience with more than 18,000 musicians there confirms his belief that young people like popular music only because "they don't know any better." "Altho some of the campers play jazz at dances, they never go into it professionally," he said. "They have tasted great music and that is what they want to play." "Popular Music Worse" Dr. Maddy, a jazz band musician more than 45 years ago, said popular music is worse than ever. "If I made sour notes like you hear now, I would have been thrown out," he asserted. He played five instruments. But he added that there is much good serious music in America today. There are 1,740 students, 750 staff members, and about 400 parents at Interlochen this summer, Dr. Maddy said. In addi tion, 30 talented high school students are using the Inter lochen Arts academy facilities for an intensive six-week course in microbiology under the auspices of the National Science Foundation and the University of Michgian. Twenty Are Musicians "Twenty of them are musi cians," Dr. Maddy said. "This supports my contention that the arts and sciences go together." The academy opened last year with 134 students and will enroll about 300 this year, Dr. Maddy said. It offers a com plete college preparatory pro gram and the arts. The stu dents' schedule runs from 8 a. m. to 8 p. m. six days week. "We had a $200,000 deficit, but I know we will be self- supporting in three or four years," Dr. Maddy said. "We have proved the idea that students can concentrate for long periods of time. Dr. Maddy said his current project, the organization of an International Youth Symphony orchestra representing at least 50 countries, will be completed next summer.

BURY BRITON, 41, SLAIN BY SECRET SOCIETY FELONS SINGAPORE, July 13 Reuters Daniel Dutton, 41, the British penal camp settlement commander tortured and murdered by secret society detainees yesterday, was buried here tonight with military honors according to the rites of the Moslem religion. Dutton's widow, for whom he became a Moslem, stood silently by the graveside. Detectives continued intensive questioning of more than 300 secret society detainees. A Chi nese guard seriously wounded in the wave of murder, torture and terror died from his injuries. This brought the death toll among the prison staff to four three warders and Dutton. Twenty-five staff members were injured. Dutton ran the "self-help" prison as a liberal experiment in combatting secret society gangsters . thru rehabilitation and modern penal methods. The Singapore government said that the future of the penal island, where the guards carried no guns, will depend on the find ings of a commission of inquiry. Most of prisoners were taken to cells in Singapore today. Law commanded a torpedo boat squadron during World War II. He was cited in 1942 for his part in British channel action against the battleship Scharnhorst, and again in 1943 for action off the Dutch coast. Action at Normandy In 1944 Law was awarded the distinguished service cross for achievements in 15 actions during the Normandy landings in which his flotilla received heavy losses in ships and personnel. The Sioux will end its three-day goodwill visit to Chicago tomorrow morning. It will be open to visitors from 1 to 5 p.m. today.

S U VATICAN CITY, July 13 (UPD The second session of the ecumenical council, which opens Sept. 29 in St. Peter's basilica, will end Dec. 8, an informed Vatican source reported today. The source said it was not immediately known if there would be further sessions at later dates. Museum Engine Stirs Memories for Engineer It had been more than 50 Project Mercury astronauts are v m Neville years since Frank Neville had stood at the throttle of Engine 999 as an engineer for the New York Central r a i 1 -road. Neville, 7 7, had made the trip from his Utica, N. Y., home to visit his old locomotive, now a permanent exhibition in the Museum of Science and Industry. Set World Speed Record "She looks as tho she were still as powerful as she was on the day she set the world speed record," Neville said. "This was one of the great locomotives of all time. She is still one of the most famous among railroad men." Engine 999 established the world speed record of 112 miles an hour in an exhibition speed run between Batavia and Buffalo. N. Y., on May 10, 1893. Publicity Was Great The engineer at the time was Charlie Hogan. The publicity accorded his performance made him as famous then as the today Neville, who retired from the railroad in 1956, served as a fireman and as an engineer on the 999. He served as a fireman in 1904 and 1905 when Engine 999 made a daily run of 224 miles from Clayton, N. Y., to Syracuse. In 1912, after he had been promoted to engineer, the 999 was his train and he ran her be- j tween Watertown and Cape Vin-I cent. Seven Feet Wheels "When the 999 set the world's record," he said, "she had wheels that were slightly more than 7 feet high. They were built for speed. It turned out the engine wasn't big enough to carry the trains on the main line of the New York Central. So the engine was shipped to the St. Lawrence division where I drove her." Neville said that when Engine 999 was taken off the main line its over-sized wheels were replaced with standard sized wheels of 68 inches. "She was still quite an engine tho," he said, "and she looks as good to me now as she ever did." TEACHER FINDS NEWSPAPERS ARE TOP TEXTS BY RONALD KOTULAK Students who think they are putting something over on a teacher by reading a newspaper i n the classroom may be learning more than they realize, a Wells High school instructor said yesterday. - Joel A. Lip-kin, 4 955 N. Wolcott av., a history teacher, said that students would develop a better understanding of contemporary history if more instructors used newspapers in the classroom. Completes Teaching Course Lipkin recently completed a course on how to make a more effective use of newspapers as teaching aids at a workshop for teachers at the State University of Iowa. Lipkin's participation in the workshop was sponsored by The Tribune. "I didn't realize it myself, that there are so many ways of looking at Uie news," he said. "By just reading the want ads you can get a pretty good idea of our economic status. "Are Living Texts" "Newspapers are actually living texts which enable students to study the history of the world as it passes. Newspaper stories of integration efforts, railroad mergers, and labor strikes can be usd to trace the history of these movements, he asserted. "For instance," he said, "the present racial situation did not just develop overnight. It goes all the way back to colonial times when Negroes first came to this country." "Will Be Major Text" Lipkin said newspapers will be the major f orn- of education for most pupils, after they leave high school. "A person can appreciate the value of history more when he can see how it is affecting his life right now," he said. Courses in which critical thinking play an important part can benefit most from newspapers, he asserted. Lipkin said he plans to use papers more extensively in his history classes. "Not Often Read" Bond issues, taxes, and elec tions are civic matters that are given complete coverage by the press but many persons fail to read about them, he pointed out. " In addition to studying under University of Iowa journalism professors, the high school teachers heard speakers from the newspaper industry and were taken on trips to see the working press in action. Twenty-five members of the sheriff's police training program were graduated in ceremonies yesterday in the County building and will be assigned to duties in the sheriff's police force. Sheriff Richard B. Ogilvie said the class, the second to be graduated under his new training program, attended a 10-week course in the Chicago police academy. With them were five Skokie policemen and one agent from the federal bureau of Indian affairs. A third class of 20 men will begin training tomorrow. Ogilvie also swore in the first 100 members of the sheriff's junior posse at ceremonies at 7500 S. Harlem av., Bridgeview The ceremonies were spon sored by the sheriff's juvenile bureau and the Bridgeview Civic league. SLAVE NATIONS TO MARK DAY WITH SPEECHES FREEMAN OFF TO STUDY RED FARM POLICIES Washington, July 13 (Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman took off for the Soviet Union today to take a measure of what he called "the winds of change" taking place in agriculture behind the iron curtain. In a statement issued shortly before his departure, the secretary said his month-long tour is designed to find out, if that is possible, just what the future may offer in the way of increased competition in world farm markets from the Soviet Union and its satellite countries. Essential That We Know "In a world where the major problem of most people is to get enough food to eat, it is essential that we be apprised of its progress and the changes which may add to or detract from that progress in the agricultural programs of the eastern European nations," he said. The secretary's party included Mrs. Freeman and eight department scientists and farm experts. Mrs. Freeman is not an official member of the party. Freeman's first stop is to be Moscow Sunday. He and his group plan to spend 18 days touring the Soviet Union. It also Ted Kennedy to Visit Camp for Retarded Sen. Edward Ted Kennedy D., Mass., the President's youngest brother, will visit 60 retarded youngsters tomorrow at a cook-out at the Promontory point, 55th street and the lake. The children attend the Retarded Children's Aid center day camp, operated by an affiliate of the Illinois council for mentally retarded children. The camp was made possible by a $2,000 grant from the Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Foundation, and was one of several day camps for retarded children in eight states awarded a total of $25,200 by the foundation this spring. Sen. Kennedy will represent the Kennedy Foundation to learn firsthand of the camp's progress. The cook-out, a hot dog and sauerkraut picnic, will begin at 11:30 a. m. Sen. Kennedy will be accompanied by Dr. William Free-berg) director of the department of outdoor education, Southern Illinois university, Carbondale and Vernon F. Herlund, director of recreation for the Chicago park district. Francis Heinlan of Downey, chairman, Illinois Recreation association, and Gordon R. Snow, executive director, Illinois council for mentally retarded children, also will attend. The camp, open July 8 thru Aug. 18, offers nature hikes, supervised games and handicraft, outings to zoos, museums and conservatories, aand other activities. will visit Poland, Rumania, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia. The trip will match one the Soviet Union minister of agriculture and a staff of experts made to this country last year. Freeman said that the United States must look principally to export markets for any substantial increase in its farm production. But prospects for broadened markets could be affected, he said, by farm developments in eastern Europe. Seeks Biological Pact The secretary said also he hopes to negotiate with Russia officials on the removal of the Soviet Union's barriers to bi ological exploration by Americans in the vast Russia territory. "We currently are making intensive studies of biological and other less hazardous means of controling insect and plant pests, and we should seek to add to this search the biological information from all areas of the world," he said. American scientists would like, he said, to make searches in the Soviet Union for additional wild plants, germ plasms, pest-and-weid-destroy-ing insects and disease-resistant crops that might be imported into this country , for further study and experimentation. Grizzly Bear Killed After Fleeing Cage Memphis, July 13 (UPD An angry 1,000-pound grizzly bear was killed by policemen using two machineguns, rifles, and shotguns, after it escaped from its enclosure at Overton Park zoo. Officials said the bear apparently dug thru a light layer of concrete used to construct the bears' "caves" and into a service tunnel, which attend ants then sealed off with ply wood and hay bales. The bear was killed when it broke thru the barrier and came growling toward the line of policemen and keepers.

BISHOP URGES A REAL CHURCH UNITY EFFORT MONTREAL, July 13 The Rt. Rev. Oliver Tomkins, Anglican bishop of Bristol, England, asked 300 protestant and orthodox theologians from 50 nations today whether they should develop a new approach to problems of Christian unity. Bishop Tomkins told the fourth world conference on faith and order of the World Council of Churches there may be a danger of developing "a sort of stage army of ecumenical activists who, wearing different hats, dash about the world meeting each other in a variety of guises." "We must ... make room for such sustained, intensive, serious theological discussion as to justify us in asking the leading theologians of Christendom to give their time and energy to meet with one another on occasions which will vindicate themselves by their own inherent value," he said. Bishop Tomkins said the greatest development of recent years was the "positive and fruitful dialogue which must remain now an open possibility" between the Roman Catholic church and the rest of the Christian world. "It would certainly appear that impulses and desires in the Roman Catholic church have been released which cannot be reversed," he said. HAS PNEUMONIA Fairbanks, . Alaska, July 13 ( A University of Wisconsin scientist was reported today to be ill with pneumonia on a floating ice island in the Arctic ocean.
