SERVICES RECOGNIZED In 192, she was awarded HOMO for her "merciful cognizance of the abject poor of a foreign land, in whose service she has led new congregation." The Indian government, which often has looked upon the activities of foreign Chris-Man missionaries with suspi-don, also singled her out for a rare honor. She was awarded the "padma shri." an Indian decoration Riven to outstanding persons. Mother Theresa came to India in 1129. as a Loretto nun and .teacher.

Steel Structure Replaces 'Little Red School House' CHICAGO (UPI) The little red school house is vanishing from the North American scene. In its place stand steel and " glass edifices. Changing1 techniques of teaching account for the shift, says Dave Chapman, in-dustrial designer. Chapman, former president of the American' Society of Industrial Designers, hai devoted almost half of his 30-year career to the field of school interior design. His latest assignment has been the .interior of the experimental school which will be featured during the second year of- the New York World's Fair. In the day of the little red school house, he explained, children were taught as a group. Today, the emphasis is on the individual student This new philosophy of teaching depends on Its mo Si Boys' Wear. You'll find full range of . - shades in smart looking checks. Sizes to 14. .

Everything about the school must be flexible from the furniture, to the wills and even to the building itself. "You can't do it with egg-crate architecture. Only with steel can you get this type of flexibility." The designer, president, of the firm of Dave Chapman, Goldsmith and YamasakU Inc., said the flexibility of architecture and structure is complemented by the extreme versatility of architecture and structure .of school furniture.
