COURIER NEWS BHS Keyboard Pounders Learn to Type By Harmonizing with Musical Masters ' • • By RUTH LEE (School Correspondent) Many a student nev«-r understands the full meaning of the old expression, "all Plumbs," until he sits down at a typewriter for the first time in his-life. And. many k beginning typist Is not fully aware of the fundamental rhythms produced on the keyboard by the truly successful typist who rates high on both speed and accuracy. But at least 130 young keyboard pounders at the High School are learning to type by harmonizing their basic rhythms , with those found in the melodies of John Philip Sousa. Georges Bizet. Franz I^ehar and other composers equally famous. However, not Just any tune suitable for rhythm typing, accord- Ing to Mrs. Knthrrinc 5. Green, typing instructor who teaches four beginning classes and one advanced Cl8.«. Sfjc Records Used Bash of this 'rhythm practice is a set of six "Rational Rhythm Records" issued by the Grep Comnany in New York City. The majestic "St'-rs and Stripes Forever" has long been a rhythmical guide for carefully trained feet, but it Is just fis good a guide for heavy, untrained fingers stumbling around for an "a" or an "f" on the keyboard, The goal of every typist is to achieve an accurate and even touch, one which produces a perfect paper from the standpoint of errors, hut which also evidences a smooth- flowing, uninterrupted touch. The beginning typist learns early that the little finger Is not as powerful on the "a" or "q" as the forefinger is on the "j" or "h". He also learns that the best-looking typed material is produced with a steadj', regular motion rather than by one broken with stops between words, letters or even whole sentences. Exercise in Perpetual Motion The novice typist must learn that • good-looking typed page Is an exercise in perpetual motion. That's where the music comes in. The Rational Rythm Records have been designed to harmonlw; the emotions of the student, soothe and equalize the mental processes, "Mmulate the nerve terminals, to exhilarate the human machine and thereby accelerate the progress of the pupil to the desired end—physical and mental efficiency. One of the most important advantages of the records, Mrs. Green feels, distinct from the inspirational value, Is the fact th'at the music sets the pace. L*ft to his own methods, the student will ordinarily fall Into a rut without effort to increase speed. But, by typing along with the speeds set by the records, he Is induced to the goal of. any endeavor—the achievement^ of a performance of an Increasingly higher level. The first essential In typing with the music Is to get on the beat, the second is to stay on, and finally, for the student to synchronize all his finger movements with the rhythms of the music. Mrs. Green feels that an awareness of rhythm In typing is fundamental to good typing habits, and has found her students to be especially susceptible to the Incen- tives that the music provides. ' Kirs I Vear Claw*! Limited Only Juniors and seniors arc admitted to first year typing classes, and by the time they have com- pleled one year's work. most, of them have attained a typing speed somewhere Between 40 and SO words a minute, During the first year students learn the fundamentals of the keyboard, and afterwards type letters and manuscripts. During the second year, they type legal documents, wills and other official papers, and In addition, serve as typist for the high school faculty. 1 Teacher» Awijnrrl Each of the students In Mrs. Green's current advanced class Is assigned two teachers, rotating every six weeks. The advantages of this system are numerous. It gives the student an opportunity to do some practical work outslrte an exercise book, B nd In addition, provides i valuable service to the teaching staff. "A" grades are few and far between In Mrs. Green's classes for she feels that not m«ny students can be considered perfect, typists. Main points for judgment are position at the keyboard, accuracy, and grades made on speed tests. The speed lest, a nuisance to any typing student, makes its appearance In her classes once or twice a week, but always unobtrusively because, she, realizing the relative values of testing, knows that speed is only one of several yardsticks with which to measure « typist's performance.

The lab set includes a Geiger counter, a cloud chamber and a fluorescent screen to show radioactive material disintegrating. Carlson Figures Out Hew to Quit As Kansas Governor—He'll Resign TOPEKA. Kas., Nov. 15. (,J>)— Frank Carlson finally has figured out how he Is going to quit being governor of Kansas. He was elected to the United State* Senate Nov. 7 for both the unexpired term of the late Sen. Clyde Heed and the next regular term. His two-year term as governor ends Jan. 8. Carlson wants to resign as governor as soon as he gets his certificate of election, but a thorough search of the constitution and statutes failed to show how he could go about It. The laws jjermlt a governor to quit, but ; don't tell him how. The search by a host of legal advisers led back through history to 1868 when Gov. Sam J. Crawford resigned and went off to fight Indians. Crawford, with simple informality, just sat down and wrote a letter of resignation to the people of Kansas, and filed it with the Secretary of st.ite. That's what Carlson is going lo do. too. Uranium Hunted From Airplane BOULDER, Mont., Nov. 15. yPl— Now they're prospecting /or uranium from an airplane. Kent Howard and Dick Peterson, of Price.
