"The Educational Decision - Makers," of which Dr. Aaron V. Cicourel. assistant professor of sociology at the University of California, Riverside is co-author. His collaborator is Dr. John I. Kitsuse of Northwestern University. The talent search, with ils focus on selecting and preparing students for college, is conducted by a bureaucracy composed of administrators, counselors, and social workers, the authors assert. These bureaucrats use fallible instruments, such as psychological tests, and help to bring about decisions! that point students toward or! away from college entrance. "The serious issue," say the authors, "is that the college/non- college decision has become the decision with reference to which the student is assigned to courses, evaluated as to performance, and organizationally processed." One concern of (he authors is that the system is forcing academic specialization too early: a second is that the procedure •routinely assigns students to counselors who not only monitor their progress but actively seek and probe for 'problems'." which in most instances are merely normal signs of adolescence. A third is the effect of the fact that the criterion for success of —^ i -o..i.i..n. oi a Physical Education Criteria Committee to help direct statewide development of P.E. standards. Series of Clinics Beyond these, however, Conrad is personally carrying the "attack" with a continuing series of clinics designed to promote "the right attitudes" among school teachers who, he insists, must supply the final impetus for successful' P.E. instruction. Although he reports "unbelievable" results in some progres­ sive high school and junior high school efforts, Conrad warns that "we aren't doing what we should" at the elementary level. "If we have no more physical education training now than we had 25 years ago." he suggests, "then our kids are really getting short-changed, because they are getting 50 to 75 per cent less outside activity than a generation ago." Just a hint of what may be in store: Look for a stopwatch to replace the kick-ball on our elementary school grounds.

Since the number actually admitted depends to a considerable extent on the ability of families to provide financial support, such conditions would lead high school administrators and their personnel to spend more time with the processing of middle- and upper- class students for college entrance."

Rivers and canals carried) more than 6l£ times as much at the end of the period in 1982' as they did at its start in 1939, according to the reports from the Interstate Commerce Commission, the Corps of Engineers and the Civil Aeronautics Board. , Trucks accounted for six I times as many billions of ton- miles of freight movement in 1962 as they did in 1939; railroads less than twice as much Great Lakes ton-mile freight showed a slight gain, and air movement of intercity freight, ! whose per cent of the total was too small to estimate in 1939. was up to about 8-100 of 1 perj cent of the total in 1962. simply alive — its kicking up its biggest storm in 47 years. Contrary to some less optimistic observers, the ancient Greek axiom of "Sound Mind. Sound Body" hasn'tyet gone by the boards, even though public school administrators are turning on Ihe steam for higher scholastic achievements during the school day. There are, of course, many individuals who share the credit for the survival and revival of interest in physical education. Not the least of these is the late President John F. Kennedy and his special advisor on youth fitness, ex-Oklahoma football coach Bud Wilkinson. Man of Conviction In California, the standout has to be C. Carson "Casey" Con- Jrad, a gentleman of extraordinary conviction who sits at the obsure desk of Director, Health ncss. In his middle years, he is 1 a trim and active embodiment; of the theory that physical fit-j ncss and scholarship are natur-: al parallels in human achieve-) ment. j 1 Just as the public schools at-' tempt to push each student to; his maximum academic potential, he says, so they should also set high goals of physical; conditioning. j He's Confident • And he's confident that politi-, cal and administrative leaders.' as well as academicians, in California have abandoned the thought that IQ-vs.-PE has to be an "cither-or situation." 'Four years ago," he says. "I would not have been so optimistic. But in recent years we have elevated physical education to its most favored position since 1917." Conrad attiributes the rebirth of interest to the personal efforts of Kennedy ("he was a God-send"). Wilkinson ("the greatest kind of leadership") and the State Legislature, which last year recommended the cs- DOLLAR DAYS SPECIALS (THURS., FRI. & SAT., FEB. 6, 7 & 8) AT DANGERMOND'S RED ONLY I TABLE OF OLEANDERS BUSHY — 2 FT.
