In the second and third grades, youngsters learn the correct nomenclature for sexual organs. Baby expressions—or worse—are discouraged. Fifth and sixth graders learn about bodily changes.

Accompanying the complete course is inslruction designed to give youngsters an understanding of their emotional reactions and of acceptable ways to express them. , In schools which have sex education programs, instruction usually is handled by health education specialists or physical education teachers. Counsellors concerned with sex education acknowledge that any sexual experience involves intense emotion and that the individual, in the final analysis, has lo think any situation through for himself. "In sex education," Mrs, Schiller explains, "we're trying to provide instruction which will enable the girl, under pressure from a boy to go all the way, for example, to determine why it may be more appropriate for her to say no from the sland* point of her relationship to the boy, to her schoolwork and to her family, The purpose is to equip the individual lo think these UUngs through on hi? own," * Tables Needed For New Center City Parks Department is badly in need of dinette tables to help furnish a recreation center in the Camp Bowie area.

RUG SHAMPOO with " m* ! fffcW YORK (AP) - Gold., j which has dazzled fiien /or cen- ! j luries, is afaift fascinating one ', of the world's leading figures,; French President Charles de Gaulle. De Gaulle warns to return to an international monetary fold slandard, wrecked ifi the 1&30 depression. Others call a return lo Ihe gold standard a retreat. Many finan-1 cial experts say the chances the ' gold slandard" ever will come i back in full flower are small. I The gold standard, used off} and on by many nations unlit the 1930s, means simply that paper money could be exchanged for gold. In a country on the gold stand- •' ard, the amount of money in' circulation is pegged directly to the amount of gold it has. The more gold a country has, the more money, De Oaulle repeated at a news conference Monday one of his favorite themes — that international finance should return to Ihe gold slandard. The slorm kicked up by the British devaluation of Ihe pound from $'2.80 lo $2.40, he said, possibly "will lead lo the re-eslab- lishmcnl of the international monetary system founded on the immutability and impartiality which are the privileges of gold/' His utterance, during a wave of gold speculation on European bullion markets, produced few ripples in financial circles. Many bankers in New York said the comments had a familiar ring. "Thai's what he's been preaching for some time," said one banker. "It's ludicrous," said another. In Washington, U. S. officials considered the suggestion impractical if not impossible. Returning lo the gold standard, they said, would scrip world trade, boost Unemployment in this country and produce sharp swings in the economy. Some officials say they don't believe de Gaulle really wants lo return lo the gold standard because this could lead lo a run on French gold, which at S5.2 billion is second lo the U.S. stockpile of about $13 billion. The gold slandard had several advantages. It provides stable currency exchange rales which eliminale uncertainty and encourages trade. Governments couldn't legally increase the amount of money in circulation withoul getting more gold. So, citizens are protected from inflation caused by governments cranking out politically-attractive, but devalued money. Some say gold tends to police the politicians, The gold standard also is supposed to keep payments be tween nations roughly in balance, If a country buys more through imports than it sells through exports, if pays out' more gold than il received. The i country would then have less; money. A smaller amount of monev, would tend (o reduce the prices | of (he country's products, presumably making them more attractive. Business would pick up,' exports thrive, gold would return through additional sales and ! Ihe economy would expand. i The gold 'standard has major : drawbacks with less money in circulation, lower pries, bus-, iness would sag and unemployment rise. Perhaps its biggest drawback is (hat international trade is restricted by the amount of gold dug from the ground. As nations production expanded, they could make goods but couldn't get paid for thorn be- ] cause the buyers would not have j gold. Although countries were, strong enough economically to buy foreign goods, some would not have the gold to make purchases. And most of the world's gold supply depends more on chance discovery than on need. The final breakdown on the inlrnalional gold slandard came during the great depression. The stock market in Ihe United States collapsed. Banks failed i throughout the world. A key reason for the demise of the gold j standard was rising tariffs in the United States and abroad which tended lo hold down trade. Restricting trade curbed the ability of nations lo balance exports and imports. Against a backdrop of domes- tic economic chaos, the States junked the gold standard. It devalued the dollar in much the way that Britain has devalued Ihe pound, temporarily suspended gold esports and forbade individuals to have gold. The United Slates called in from its citizens all gold coins and certificates and stopped redeeming paper money in gold. Existing coins were melted into bars. The United States changed in a modified gold slandard, which freed countries from the restrictions of gold. Every dollar ua<! no longer backed fully with gold but the United Stales promised to redeem any dollars held by foreign governments and pegged the price of gold at $35 an ounce. As a result, dollars became 6 reserve currency. Instead nf trading in dollars for gold, nations exchanged dollars. Nations exchanged pounds also because (he value of the pound was related to the dollar, which in turn was related lo gold. DC Gaulle wants (o return t<i the gold slandard because he apparently feels thai the reserve dollars he's getting aren't worth gold. Then, loo, he's anxious lo wrest (he economic leadership from Britain and the United States. Why bother about gold and the dollar anyway? Because the dollar is the preeminent international currency and money set the world in mo- lion. A decision on gold, and the dollar, is felt in New Brunswick or New Delhi through jobs, investments and production. WOOLWORTH'S PET CENTER w Bright, healthy young birds with colorful plumage.
