"A good skid can be an invaluable part of driver education," says Prof. Amos E. Ney- • hart, Director Emeritus of the Institute of Public Safety at The Pennsylvania State University. "Lest anyone draw the wrong conclusion, I am referring, of course, to planned skids under carefully controlled conditions and accompanied by an experiences teacher," he hastily added. Prof. Neyhart was .reporting on the annual "Skid School" conducted by the National Safety Council's Committee on Winter Driving Hazards on a glare ice course at Stevens Point, Wis. "Each year this'unique program provides a rare opportunity to some 60 high-school and college driver education teachers io develop the specialized skills needed to control skids on slippery pavements," he said. "Unfortunately, most drivers never have the opportunity of practicing skid control until faced with a real-life emergency situation on the highway," Prof. To help the Christmas Spirit along, F.H.A. is sponsoring a formal dance. It will be called the "Christmas Ball" and is a girl ask boy affair. It will be at the Tri Central Cafeteria and will last from 8:30 - 11:30. t The Queen candidates are: Jan Bohlander; Gloria Pumphrey; Susie Antrobus; Karen Graves; Vickie Bowman and Wanda Hyatt. The Prince s s candidates are: Roberta Hyatt, Debbie Miller, Sharon Antrobus and Deb Slavey. The price is $3.00 for couples, and $1.75 for singles. Not An Employment Agency BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University is helping in career decisions for high school students who want to go to work, instead of college. Project VIEW (Vital Information for Education and Work), based at the Indiana Career Guidance Center on the Bloomlhgton campus, is collecting and dispensing information about career opportunities to high schools all over the state. If a student is interested in working but does not know what he wants to do, he can find out what careers are available, what fhe skills and requirements are, and what the opportunities are. Information about more than 200 jobs has been compiled on microfilm aperture cards which are available in "decks" to high school counselors. " The cards can be used with reader or reader - printer machines. Not an employment agency, VIEW does not list specific job openings.- Neither does it at- iW M£jUCO.

VIEW is designed to arouse interest and be a first step in the selection process by giving basic information about careers. The material also guides students to sources of more detailed information about specific jobs. To localize the information, VIEW provides information appropriate to each of three regions of Indiana. The Indiana Employment Security Division helps provide regional information about careers. The ma- mation. Continuing research on changing job situations is carried out so that the information on the cards can be updated periodically. Six field representatives from the Indiana Department of Public Instruction assist with the VIEW program and visit schools to introduce the project and help Initiate it. The VIEW project at Indiana University is directed by Walter H. Cox, director of the Indiana Career Guidance Center and assistant professor of education. In addition to the information %>r high school students, VIEW is now preparing similar data about some 50 occupations which are Available to mentally handicapped persons. This information will be field tasted in the next few months in Monroe, Lawrence, Vigo, Marion, and Bartholomew counties before it is ready for general distribution, which is expected sometime next year. Accompanying the information about jobs win be a suggested curriculum to help guide teachers of the mentally handicapped in preparing students for the job market Also underway at I.U. is a study of the feasibility of expanding the VIEW information service to a multi-state area. VIEW originated in San Diego, Calif., several years ago, Dr. Cox said. Now more than 26 states have some sort of VIEW program, with Indiana being in a leadership position east of Colorado, he added. Dr. Cox serves oh the national steering committee for VIEW. The projects are federally funded under the Vocation Education Acts of 1963 and 1968. Money for the Indiana programs is administered by the Indiana Department of Public Instruction, the North Lawrence Community Schools, and the Monroe County Community Schools. Before beginning work on VIEW Dr. Cox was director of the Pupil Personnel Service Program of the South Central Education Service Unit. This program, which involved a mobile trailer counseling unit, was designed to counsel students in a nine- county area and to assist schools in developing counseling and guidance services. Successfully launched, the schools are now carrying on the work on their own. Neyhart noted. "By building a small cadre of teachers who have perfected these techniques, the Council hopes that in the near future many high-school driver education courses will cover not only the theory of skidding and skid control, but that the students will have the privilege of practicing these techniques as a regular part of the course." In the meantime, he urged all drivers to follow the commonsense tips developed by the Council's Committee on Winter Driving Hazards for safer driving on winter's slippery pavements: 1. Get the "feel" of the road by accelerating carefully to see if wheels spin; or brake gently to see if they skid. Reduce speed accordingly and increase following distance. It takes three to nine times as far to stop on snow and ice as on dry pavement. 2. "Pump" your brakes to slow or stop— don't jam them on. An intermittent pumping action three to five times per second keeps the wheels roll- Achievement, Ability/Attitude By Dale Meyerrose HH Reporter Education is one of the five major institutions of all societies. Education has two major functions. The first is to perpetuate knowledge that has been acquired in the past, and encourage investigation for further knowledge. The second is to socialize the young's behavior patterns according to the mores and folkways of the society. The first function of this institution is not too hard to fulfill. Education accomplishes this feat with subject matter in six areas, languages, social sciences (history, .sociology, psychology, etc.) mathematics, science, the arts, and vocational braining. Society has been very successful towards fulfilling this function. The fact that our culture base of knowledge has expanded so much has lent proof of society's success. However, I think it is worthwhile to analyze society's fulfillment of its second function. It is a fact of sociology that no culture can survive unless its members can adhere to the laws of the culture. It is the duty of education, according to sociologists, to supply the guidelines for living in our society. I would like to illustrate what has been provided by our school and then you decide if there is an inadequacy in our educational system. There are many clubs and organizations at our school. First there is the most elite organization, the National Honor Society. It was organized primarily to recognize and promote achievement. It recognizes the academic and social accomplishments of the best students. .Attitude also carries much weight when the teachers consider who should be members. The most active club at our school is the Girls' Athletic Association. They meet every week and have already done various things such as bowling, volleyball, basketball, and other such activities. This organization stresses ability with achiyement as a goal. It should be noted that attitude is a factor of achievement. As the G.A.A. does for girls, so athletics do for boys. All our sports, football, cross country, basketball, wrestling, brack, baseball, and golf depend upon ability with the betterment of attitude and accomplishment as goals. Coinciding with athletics would be the Letter man's Club and the Booster Club. The Letterman's Club is to recognize the achievements of athletes and the Booster Club is to encourage achievement for the athletes. There are two other clubs that have avility as the main determinate, the chess and bridge clubs. These are all organizations that stress ability and achievement. There is onej. other type of organization at Hamilton Heights, those that stress attitude. These clubs generally are to develop the students attitude in a particular area. Some of these clubs are: FTA, French, Math, Sience, Latin, History, Hi-Y, and Tri- Hi-Y. These are all concerned with one's attitude in a particular area of study. You may have already noticed the frequency of the occurence of attitude. It is very evident that society tried to influence young people's attitudes. Every club is set upon democratic principles, president, vice president and so on. Society also has taken measures to make sure we can conform so they improvise, dress codes and such. Since everything is provided for us we will come out of our educational system with the proper American attitudes. So how do you account for all of the college unrest? Many young people claim that idealogies in a cruel, realistic world are unnecessary Therefore they try to change the world. Older people feel that it's young people's obnoxiousness and independence and so they try to make young people conform. Neither side gives in or will give in. So what should be done about our educational system? Or is everyone giving responsibilities of another institution to education, the institution known as the family?

Studded snow tires offer still more help on icy surfaces. 4. Always carry reinforced tire chains in the trunk of your car for use during severe snow and ice conditions. They provide four to seven times as much traction on snow or ice as regular tires. "By heeding these rules, most skids could be avoided in the first place," he concluded. . Recognized as the "father of driver education," Prof. Neyhart pioneered high-school driver education in this country, teaching the first driver education classes at State College, Pennsylvania High School in 1933. He is now a consultant on driver education to the American Automobile Association, and serves as President of the Safe Winter Driving League. $eaulij Contest The Indiana State Finals of the Miss American Teen-Ager Pageant will be held in Indianapolis at the Holiday Inn #8 East, on Friday and Saturday, May 21 and 22, 1971..

A Valuable Opportunity HELEN HELP US! —rby Helen Bottel—- The United States Army is offering qualified young men and women a .unique and valuable opportunity to prepare for a professional nursing career through the Walter Reed Army Institute of Nursing (WRAIN) Program. "If their application is accepted," said Captain Janice M. Cox, Army Nurse Corps Counselor, "nearly all educational expenses are met by the Army for four years. In addition; they receive the pay and allowances of an E-3 (PFC) but do not have to attend any military training." Prerequisites include high class standing in high school and satisfactory performance on the College Entrance Examination Board or the American College Test. The first two years are spent in an accredited four-year college or university of their choosing. There they take general educational and pre-professional courses. The Army pays tuition and fees to the college. The student receives monthly pay and allowances for his or her room, board and personal expenses. The candidates then enroll for the last two years in the University of Maryland's School of Nursing. The Walter Reed Army Medical Center provides clinical nursing and other educational experiences. Upon graduation and success-; ful completion of a state licen- I sure examination in professional nursing, the candidate is commissioned, a First Lieutenant in the United States Army. The obligation for service is three years. • : love Is Blind.. Continued This column is for young people, their problemsand pleasures, their troubles and fun. As with the, rest of Helen Help Us I, it welcomes laughs but won't dodge a serious question with a brush-off.' Send your teenage questions to YOUTH ASKED FOR IT, care of Helen Help Us! this newspaper. Dear Helen: What, if anything, can be done to help someone avoid making a bad marriage? My best friend is crazy in love with a guy who has a wild past, has cheated during their engagement, left her a couple of times, but always comes back saying he's "changed." He is 30 and has very little to offer. He's anxious to get away from his parents who have quite a hold on him. She is 21,.from a good family, has a good education and job. Still, she's so infatuated she can't see straight. Are there any hopes for a marriage when the partners lack the same backgrounds,' education, and moral values? Not to speak of coming from different financial situations. And will a man ever change if he hasn't changed his promiscousness during the engagement? —HELPLESS SPECTATOR Dear Spectator: I'd give this marriage about as much chance as a duck has of swimming in detergent. \ . . .And I'd give you as iittle odds on trying to dissuade your friend. Her kind of love is not only blind, but deaf and dumbl -H. Dear Helen: This is to "Thinker," and thanks for telling him off, Helen! He thinks aU young people are rioters and freakouts, and wrings his hands about how tough adults have things. This world isn't in such a mess we can't get out of it, using sense and knowledge and courage, and working together. If people like "Thinker'' would get off their duffs and stop generalizing, maybe they'd notice the young are already doing a lot to change things for the-better. If he watched the election returns, he'd notice how many of us were at campaign headquarters, both Democratic and Republican. We were in there working for our candidates while he might have been off somewhere else howling to his golf partner. We're fighting pollution, and drug abuse, arid war—and a lot of us are fighting IN a war too! I've been around and have met all kinds of young people, but I haven't met any "savages" yet. If "Thinker" thinks he's got troubles, he oughta try being' young today. We not only must worry about the future—and work for a better one—but we have to get past solid rock barriers like "Thinker!" — JUST A "FREAK- OUT" . Dear Helen: People are always coming up with things to save, such as old tea bag tags, which are worthless, as no one will redeem them. Well; here is a worthwhile project that is proven. A Saddle River, N.J. church is saving Betty Crocker coupons and for every 600,000, they can get a kidney machine to be used in this area. If anyone would care to contribute, send coupons *to Saddle River Reformed Church, Upper. Saddle River, New Jersey. —READER . Dear Readers: It's true! Your Betty Crocker coupons WILL provide a kidney machine where needed. This has been checked out by the fact finder department in our local paper. — H.
