COUNCIL HUFFS IOWA NONMRBL-SOTEMiei 29 »AfiiTMMi Youngsters Still Play 'Beaver*- WithModemTouch THK "BEAVER- GAME IS back wttti a new ancle. Back about the turn of the century youngsters used to play "Beaver" thus: Whenever they saw » gent wearing a beard or chin whiskers they s h o u t e d "Beaver".

Well, whiskers died out of la- Turkey .Suffers From Inflation Government Favors Keeping, loom Going (H»»M Tribune N*»'» Service) ANKARA -- Turkey is Li the grip Of a serious runaway infla- t.on. If allowed to continue unchecked much longer, i: may turn this virile nation into the "sick man of Europe"' once again. So far there are no very encouraging signs that the go-.ero- ment is preparing to take measures to bring things under control. The government's idea, in fact, is just the opposite--keep the boom going until it catches up with the inflation rather than redure or deflate the boom and bring things into lire. The difficulty with this approach is the fact that Turkey is simply trying :o do too much all at once. It can't be done. As is typical in such situations --but more starthncly apparent here in Turkey these days -there is a tremendous amount of building and capital investment ·:osng on. At the same time, the "overnmerrt is paying heavy sub- -idies. to farmers for wheat, adding still more to the country's purchasing power. Furthermore, many foreign credits which Tur- koy obtained in the past in order to "prime the pump" for economic expansion are now coming Production Too Slow The result of all these factors ·s that purchasing power has far aistraced Turkey's ability to pro- r.uce the poods to supply the den-.and. At the sarr.p t:mc T_:e for- r ~n etchanee position has stead- i.y worsened. t The official rate of exchange i" Turkey is 2 ^ Sira per dollar. ".lit on the free money markets n Switzerland and Damascus. · le Turkish lira frequently seilft ( for mne or 12 to the dollar.

"We h a v e to move along."' she says as she hurries from desk to desk seeirrg that we all get our problems r:ght_ In order to cover the ma*eria!. some reductions na\e to be made m the time we have for ac.l subject.

Starting this week at L o r . g- feiiow any of us who have begun to need more w ork on some things get it fay comsng tc private meetings with our teacher during the half day when *e are not in class. * * * Whether theie will be a lag in progress of restricted time pupils may be more evident as we get nearer the end of the semester. Bat right no« things are pretty much the same. * * * M Walnut Grove The big difference between Miss Larsen "s ciass and Miss Douglas' is that at Walnut Grove we have the luxury of more time to let tilings "soak in. ' Le^'s not overlook the fact that in third grade we also are making a major step in our learning to write. You know, it s different from printing. Every letter has a little "swing" on the end. and you can tie them together to make words. Now that we're writing everything, we slow down a little bit on how much arithmetic and reading and spelling and other things we learn. Once we get the "swing" of this writing business, those will move faster than ever, our teachers promise. It isn't always easy either to knew when to use capitals and how to keep our words -on the lines. Class Pull of Heroes Then, here's another Item thst would startle you. Our grade is full of heroes. You'd agree with that if you've ever been a toastmaster. Through the first two grades we had a iot of practice telling some of oar experiences out loud. Now. if ou couid see how we get up and talk or read to trie class without stumbling and stuttering, you'd wish you couid do as well. So. you can see. whether we are going to school a:i day or not. we're going to get some place ir; this worid.--"I betcna: ' Next week I'ii be ;n the fourth grade. * * * i in the morning class." one of them grieved. Then there are some other interesting sidelights. One is how the half day is spent when the children do not go to class. One boy bravely admitted before uV group: "I help with the dishes." Another said he went to the store for his grandmother. May Start Snack Time A little girl has a sister who gets out of school an hour earlier. "I have to run home and get a cookie before she eats, them all up." she exclaimed. One teacher thought a snack time would be set up for the morning youngsters, who go to school from S to 12. It seems breakfast isn't a big enough meal to carry them through to dinner. During the second semester or this year, the four third grade classes will go on full schedule, and the four second grade groups will take over the restricted time hours. Two G/r/s Call This A 5er;ous Problem One of the most serious problems (from the youngster's point of view) with half-day sessions m the school was brought to light this week by two girls in an afternoon third grade class at Longfellow School.
