If those enrolling choose to pay the $10 fee, the balance of the tuition charges must be paid in full before Jan. 10, 1978, according to Fowler. INSTRUCTOR BERNIE Hauff, left, discusses with a class of first graders activities for the morning. Kim Ulrlch listens. At right, youngsters try out the cargo net. The net, said Ms. Hauff, Is preferable to a rope In that while It helps develop upper arm and leg muscles It Is also equipment that all children can successfully use. Children are, from left, Chad Hensley, Paula Blackmore, and Trista Borsh. First grader Wanda Brown, bottom, vaults over a bench for her solution to a problem posed by Ms. Hauff. Carol Crupper 'Busy Bodies' of Different Nature at This School By CAROLCRUPPER If one drops 1 in on a physical education class at Alta Brown Elementary School, he'll not find an idle body. Everyone is busy. Little time is spent standing in line waiting for a turn at an activity. Each child is involved — working at his own level of skill. Children are not pitted against one another, and there is never the agony of choosing up teams. Students "on task" (those who are behaving appropriately) are praised. Inappropriate behavior is ignored. Whistles are out. Children are addressed in a conversational tone of voice. The emphasis is positive in "Each Child a Winner," a pilot program being implemented this year at Alta Brown. "My number one objective is to make children feel good about themselves," said instructor Bernie Hauff. "If that is achieved, fitness, skills and good health will follow." Physical education is for everyone — not just the athlete, she said. In this program, the less physically skilled are not pushed to one side as the more athletic youngsters dominate activities. Every child can win. "Each Child a Winner" is being started in the kindergarten, first and second grades this year, and Mrs.- Hauff plans to add a grade a year. Lessons involve the practicing of skills rather than the playing of games. "It's different than recess," said Ms. Hauff. Activities are concerned with the whole body — moving, exploring and seeking solutions to problems. "Can you find something interesting to do with the rope?" Ms. Hauff may ask her second graders. Some may jump it, others may skip across it. The children do whatever suits The Markets Wheat Milo Corn $2.35unchg. $3.15unchg. $2.07unchg.

X-Rate Movie Previews Will Be Discontinued Previewing of X-rated movies before they are shown at Garden City's State Theater will be discontinued. County Attorney Don Vsetecka said Thursday that he had reconsidered his position on the screening of X- rated movies by law enforcers'. The screening procedure was instituted at Vsetecka's request in response to citizen complaints registered about the showing of X-rated movies. Only one X-rated movie was screened under the procedure. "I do not feel that I or the law enforcement officers should be the judges and jury in this matter. "And for this reason, I'm going to wait until the obscenity resolution (pending revision before the County Commission) is voted on next year and let the people of the county decide whether they want censorship (of movies shown)," Vsetecka said. The county attorney said while he favors imposing the standards of the community upon the community, he does not feel he should impose his own standards on the community. The obscenity resolution to which he referred is one that was presented to the com- mission in preliminary form several months ago. At that time, the commissioners said they would finalize the resolution and put it before a countywide vote in the November, 1978, general election. State Theater manager Mike Smaha, unavailable for comment Thursday, said earlier that he felt the preview screening by law enforcers was unnecessary because of the standards already imposed on the State Theater by himself and by the Kansas City main office of Commonwealth Theaters, State's parent company.

One day emphasis may be placed on educational gymnastics. The next day it may be on creative dance, game skills, or large apparatus work. In this program, everyone participates. Lessons are planned so that every child is kept busy all the time. There is never a game with 25 children in a circle with one ball. If 25 children are working on kicking skills, there are 25 balls to be kicked. Procedures are established, said Ms. Hauff, so that each child can work without bothering the work of any other student. One of the first lessons children in the "Each Child a Winner" program learn is about spaces. At first, hula hoops were laid out to define individual spaces — then carpets. Next, children were asked to pretend they were surrounded by a bubble. Sebelius to Scott City Next Friday SCOTT CITY - Cong. Keith Sebelius will be in Scott City Friday morning, Dec. 9, to be brought up to date on the problems and concerns of the people of western Kansas. Robinson Motor Inn will be hosting a continental breakfast in its hospitality room at 8 a.m. The breakfast is free to the public. Following the breakfast will be a discussion and listening exchange. People of Scott County and the surrounding area are being urged to attend and share their views, "What would happen to the bubble if you ran into someone?" the teacher asked. It would burst, of course, they said. The children, thus, learned to keep to their own space. Behavior problems are minimal in "Each Child a Winner." "Discipline in this program is fantastic," said Ms. Hauff. Most students misbehave, she said, for attention or because they are standing around with nothing to do. Misbehavior is ignored in "Each Child a Winner." Children who are "on task" Dr. Jenkins To Practice Garden City has a new physician. Dr. R. J. Maxfield and Dr. J. W. Bruno Friday announced the association of Dr. Edward R. Jenkins in the Plaza Medical Center. Dr. Jenkins came to Garden City in October to direct the family practice residency program for the University of Kansas. The American Medical Assn., however, recently announced it was withholding approval of a family practice residency in Garden City at this time. Dr. Jenkins will continue his academic appointment at the University of Kansas and will instruct KU students and postgraduate physicians during their training at St. Catherine Hospital. Dr. Jenkins is a graduate of the University of Southern California and is board certified by the American Academy of Family Practice. He will begin practice at Plaza Medical Center on Monday. receive the attention. "I see Lisa trying something different on her board," Ms. Hauff may say. "I-see Danny walking quietly to the door." As soon as a student who is misbehaving gets back "on task," he is recognized. Boredom causing misbehavior? No way. There is no child in Ms. Hauffs class with nothing to do. To follow her philosophy, the instructor has made some unique equipment so that every child may be kept occupied. When you need a variety of items, it's too expensive to buy 25 badmitten rackets. Instead, the teacher has put old nylon hose over bent coat hangers to provide instruments for students to practice striking skills. Cut out bleach bottles provide dandy catchers for homemade bean bags. Each child is separately engaged in analyzing a problem and seeking a solution within the limitations of his own physical and mental abilities, said Ms. Hauff. "With this total involvement," she said, "there is little time to be critical of classmates." As the child explores possibilities, she said he learns two important things — what he can do and what he cannot do. "The child's capabilities are emphasized," she said. "Thus the child can accept areas of weakness without feeling overwhelmed by failure." He feels good about himself. And that, says Ms. Hauff, is what it's all about. Found Unconscious SW Bell Manager Hospitalized Bob Wright, manager of the Garden City office of Southwestern Bell Telephone Co., and chairman of the area planning commission, was listed in "good, stable condition" Friday morning in the intensive care unit of St. Catherine Hospital. Wright was admitted to the hospital at 9:15 Thursday evening after having been found unconscious at the Garden City Country Club. According to witnesses at the Country Club, Wright was eating dinner there when a piece of food evidently lodged in his throat or wind-pipe. He left the table and went to the men's room in an attempt to dislodge the food particle and lost consciousness. When Wright was discovered, a doctor dining at the club was called. He helped dislodge the food and restore Wright's breathing, according to witnesses. Wright was treated by • Finney County Emergency Medical Service technicians and taken by ambulance to the hospital. He regained consciousness after arriving at the hospital. Wright's doctor reported to friends Friday morning that he was pleased with Wright's progress and that he was recovering satisfactorily. Tractors Aimed at Topeka Plans are being made at strike offices around the southwest corner of the state to send tractors to the Dec. 10 American Agriculture rally at the state capital in Topeka. Starting on Dec. 6, lines of tractors from major towns in the area will begin to flow slowly eastward. Tractors from Cimarron, Johnson, Manter, Elkhart and Satanta will converge in Dodge City on the evening of December 6. So far, seven tractors have been scheduled to travel from Cimarron on US50, 16 have been promised from Johnson and Manter, and three will make the trip, from Elkhart on US56. Three other tractors will travel from Elkhart to Oklahoma City on Dec. 7 for the Oklahoma rally. Joining the line of tractors to Dodge City will be at least 11 tractors from Satanta. Vehicles were also expected from Ulysses and Sublette, but those offices could not be contacted. No plans have been formed as yet by officials at the Garden City strike office as to how many tractors will be sent from here to Topeka. Most of the office staff has been in Texas the past few days for an American Agriculture fund raising rally. They are expected to returh to Garden City Saturday to make their plans for the Topeka rally. Tractors from Syracuse are reportedly going to the rally at the Colorado capitol in Denver because it is closer than Topeka. Several individuals from Syracuse are expected to travel by car and truck to the Topeka rally, however. Twelve tractors are expected to travel from Leoti to Topeka. Five of those were confirmed Tuesday. The Tribune and Scott City offices were unable to be reached to comment on their plans for the rally. Tractors from those towns will converge in Great Bend with the tractorcade from Garden City and Lakin. So far, Lakin has arranged'for at least one tractor and some trucks to make the trip. -s.^^ J ^^att»^ai^^«^ ••:>
