Students Fish On School Time Editor's Note: A lot of Corpusi Christi high school pupils are going fishing on school time— with the approval of their teachers and school officials. Here is the story of a situation that isn't as extraordinary as it sounds. COKPUS CHKISTI (AP)Any bright, sunny day may find Corpus Christi pupils and teachers alike slipping out of classrooms to head for the beach. And one high school even provides transportation via an old pickup truck reworked as a beach buggy. Now the Corpus Christi school system isn't encouraging truancy. It is, rather, pioneering a field of study that some scient- ists think may be more important to humanity than the exploration of outer space. They say marine science classes may stimulate pupils to seek a career in oceanography and related fields which hold hopes for feeding the world when other food sources become inadequate by overpopulation. And evnii more important, say Corpus Chrisli school officials, the courses help pupils learn about and understand the environment that is part of their daily life in the Texas city by the sea. The pupils are delving into the waler pollution problem, ways to obtain food from the sea and classification of animal and plant life in the Gulf of Mexico. The Corpus Christi marine science courses were started in 19G4 by Alice E. Sharp. They are now offered at four city high schools and plans call for the courses to begin at a fifth high school next year, The relative newness of the field as an academic subject has made it necessary for local teachers to compile information for class use. The success of the program has led to statewide accreditation for the course, Emmy Awards Slated For TV Sunday Night MAYBE THE MAN CAME TO READ THE METER. BEEN NAGGINS ME ASA!

The 21st awards of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences will be handed over Sunday at 9 CDT over CBS, and it remains to be seen whether the ceremonies will reflect a maturity on the part of Oscar's younger sister. Last year's affair fell far short of being a triumph admits TV Academy' President Seymour Berns but lie promises that the 1968-G9 awards will be better. Berns is a pipe-smoking television veteran who directed one of the first Emmy winners (a girl vertriloquist with a dummy named Judy Splinters) and later directed Jack Benny and Red Skelton. Now he's in charge of Die burgeoning TV enterprises of the entertainment giant Nation General Corp. "We're going back to some basic fundamentals with this year's show" Berns reported. "The first principle is that an awards show should be an event. It has the two elements that are television's best attributes: it happens now; and it deals with people's emotions. "An awards program can't compete with an entertainment show. Any variety show has the facilities and ti;ne to do a much better job with entertainment and any such attempts are bound to be compared unfavorably to the awards telecast. "That doesn't mean we won' have entertainment elements in the Emmy show. But they wil be generic and not offered sole ly to entertain; they will mak' sense in the context." Many critics have failed to make any sense out of the mul tiplicity of Emmy categories and Berns admitted that has al ways been a problem with television. "Perhaps we could make th awards simpler but that woul mean stepping on a lot of toes he remarked. "This year w tried an innovation by an nouncing the news and docu mentary awards earl}'. We di this because news was neve more important than it was i 19GB. By knowing the winners i advance we could show piece of the shows and make then more meaningful than if merely read the list of nominee and the winner." Not a bad idea from the prac tical side either; there were 1' nominations in the news-docu mentary divisions. After years of being presented as a banquet, the Emmies will be presented Sunday in a thea ter—the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium from which the Oscars moved to the Los Angeles Music Center—and Carnegie Hall in New York. Berns cited reasons for the switch: a theater gives the show a better look; the audience pays attention better; the dinner following the a'.vards has always been a letdown. This year a champagne reception will follow. liowever, and other cities including Houston have embarked on the field of study. Marine science summer courses aimed at improving instruction are offered to state teachers through Texas A&M University, one of the few schools which offers a degree program in oceanography.
