PAGE TWO BI,YTHEVTI,LE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Only Thing Sure in State Election Is That Democrats Will Be Winners INEA 445,850,000 BUSHELS LITTLE ROCK, NOV. 7. Wj—To-* day's election day, and Just about the only thing that seemed assured in Arkansas was that the Democrats would win. But on three bitterly-contested referenda, there was no such agreement. Spokesmen for the opposing sides made the usual pre-election prcdlc- tioiis of victory. But there was no slackening of efforts to sway voters and get supporters to the polls as Arkansas marked the ballots which will decide: Four Proposals Considered Whether the stale continues legal liquor sales—In those counties not, already dry by local option—or adopts the "One Quart" prohibition law. . Whether there's to be earmarked for school purposes an estimated $32.500,000 annually of the first tax money the state gets. 'Whether owners throughout the state will be required to keep livestock under fence as against the present system under which fencing districts are created by local voting. • There's another referendum nica- forecast In Arkansas since recon- sure en the ballot, but while it's at- < struction days—the governor -said tracted some opposition, there's he believed the four-year term pro- been none of the heitfd and high- pasal—Amendment No. 4-1—would ly organized for and against can;- win. patens in which the other three I ,, c cc ,,ti mle u to rctuse comment 335,000,000 426,000,000 BUSHELS 401,962,000 (EST.)

It wcn't be effective for two more years, and nobody elected today would be "blanketed in" by the measure. Governor MoMath, who managed to maintain a public silence on the referenda while certain of his administration lieutenants were actively supporting or opposing the school funds measure, prediclcd victory for the state Democratic ticket, yesterday. Only 2 State Democrats OPiwsed That ticket is unopposed except for McMath, Democratic nominee for another term, against whom Republican Jefferson w. Speck has conducted a vigorous campaign, and Vance Clayton, Democratic incumbent, whom Mrs. Frank McGillicnd- dy, also a Republican, would oust- as state treasurer. Aside from McMath's prediction of Democratic victory—a safe enough i the other referenda. The school funds proiKisal is Amendment No. 41. The proposed slock law is Initialed Act No. 1. The proposed prohibition act—which derives its "One Quart" designation from the fact that It would set a lefial possession limit of that amount of liquor—is Initiated Act No. 2. Today's elcelion apparently was to be the last time that Arkansas voted uti seven U. s. Representatives for at least 10 years. The stale is due to lose one Representative because of a population Joss. The seven Democratic incumbents were uncpposed for re-election In today's balloting. So was Senator Fulbrlght, up for re-election. lire first machine ever used in making shoes was a clamping press invented to attach leather soles to the shoe uppers.

A small, specialized college, or the university? Law, or medicine? Twelfth grade composition, or Journalism? A (might, academic course, or one on the more practical, flexible side? These, and thousands of others are questions put to Miss Effle Lee Terrell, counselor for Blytheville High School, who has been attempt- Ing to find the answers since the fall of 1945 when she became combination counselor-teacher for the school. ' Miss Terrell frankly admits' tha' she doesn't know all the answers but If a poll could be taken of the hundreds of high school children who have sat in her friendly little office, chances are they would report, one hundred per cent, that she a good try. For the philosophy of this posi- llve-mlndcd, friendly but poised counselor Is that for the problem of ever child, there Is a solution The same theory she applies to t?achctv>, administrators and represented parents In the high school. Tiie word "counselor" does not mean what it should to the general public. Miss Terrell feels, the main reason for this being that this person's area of work cannot be as clearly defined as that of the teacher, principal or superintendent. Chief Aims Named However. In her annual report Kst year, she named two chief alms: 'Realization of the concept that "Guidance Is the high art of help- Ing boys and girls to plan their own actions wisely In the full light of all the facts that can be mastered about themselves and the world In which they will live and work. 1 Making the guidance program a more unified and Integral part, of the total school program through the enlistment of greater teacher and student participation In the guidance activities and services To the average citizen .thus should mean that Blytheville High" School has employed a .specially trained person to help every high school boy and girl In (own to find particular place In 'life—whatever POOR R AMESES! Ramcscs FI was tlic richest man on record. He had servants and slaves by the hundreds, jewels by the Irunkful, and (en billion dollars for spending money. Yet with all his wealth, Ramcscs never hvcd as comfortably as any average American family in today's electric era. I Ic had no refrigeration to protect his food, no clcc- tnc ranges to cook that food flourishingly and delicately. His palaces were inefficiently heated and cooled and lighted. Me had no eleclric shaver for his whiskers, no radio to bring his favorite nnscball teams. In fact, he had no baseball [cams! Poor, rich Ramcscs never dreamed of electric living! He'd be surprised to learn the average family of today enjoys more comfort and case than the richest'king in history-ami all for a few cents daily. Which allows us to point out it isn't what you pay for tilings that counts. It's what yon gci for your money. And when yon buy electric service, you're getting the world's biggest bargain in livingl "MEET CORLISS ARCHER" f or delightful wmcrty. CBS-Sunrtays-S P. M,, Central Time. Ark-Mo Power Co. Miss Klfle Lee Terrell that At the high school, Mlrs Terrell spends a great deal of her time directing activities of the guidance program. -The program itself is a set of activities which provides the counselor with data necessary for her to do her work. The various services offered by the guidance program include a vocational information service, a self Inventory service, a personal data collecting service, a counseling service ,a vocational preparatory service, a placement service, a follow-up or adjustment service,,and a research service. These generally staled activities, reduced to their working level, mean that Miss Terrell is the right person to go to for guidance of any kind, from geting a job for the weekend to deciding on a new teacher or a new course. 3 Guidance Areas Listed The three primary areas of guidance, as outlined by Miss Terrell, are U) to counsel students, (2) snp- TTJESDAY, NOVEMBER T, ply leadership for developing »nd extending guidance services, and (3) to supply and Interpret lacU to the administrative staff to aid In the planning of the total school prcsrr.m to better meet the needs of the Individual. As (or the student counseling service, last year many ninth graders and nil .students In the tenth and eleventh grades were assisted, through conferences, In making educational and vocational plans. Each .senior was assisted with nuking his or her "after-graduation" plans, tiuiny obtained advice on choice of a college, and help with making application for admission. In addition. MLw Terrell assisted numerous youngsters with apllca- lions for .scholarships at various colleges and universities. It's not Just the college-bound student, however, that the counselor helps with his problems, she also helps .students find part-time and full - time employement, assists newcomers to the high school with | their adjustment problems; and pays special attention to the physically handicapped. Branching out from the individual child. Miss Terrell finds time (••) work with parents, teachers in her school and those in other schftols, and in addition, to he an active member of numerous profes- sionM organizations, .1 !i!-:l l"»b School Staff In '37 I She jci'T-d the tiis;!i school te.ich-I 1115 staff In 1937 as social science teacher. During the war she con- j tinned io teach, and served also' ns assistant principal to Miss Rosa Hardy. The counselor began to set up her guidance program in the fall of UH5. July 1, 1940, the department was approved by the Stat« Depart- ! tnent of Education, and she became (ull-timc counselor. A varied and full educational background is only one explanation' of her general Slid professional ef- i ficicncy. In addition to a B. A. degree from Hendrix College and a Master's degree from the University of Arkansas, she has done graduate work at the University of Colorado. George Peabody College, and in the summer of 1948, studied at Syracuse University after being awarded a grant from the General Education Board. Just as important as her professional training are those personal qualities which make h«r Just tthe right person for the Job, Miss Terrell's frank, straightforward eyes look straight into those of the.stu- dent, before her, and on beyond where she glimpses the aawers to the questions she finds there. Miss Terrell has felt the full Impact of the enormously increased school enrollment. However, by careful budgeting, die i* able to meet the demands on her time. And, although she works under * constant handicap of "numbers", as the entire educational world does today, the Blytheville school system can mark up one significant step in its efforts to contribute Intelligent, well-adjusted young people to society. Miss Terrell is that step. McMath Plans TV Appearance LITTLE ROCK, Nov. T. «•)— Governor McMalh will appear on » Columbia Broadcasting System t«l«- vislon forum from New York n«it Sunday.
