Hawks said he had no idea how many of these cards were being mailel lo- av except that "il must be quite few." This year's greeting is a folded card measuring 9','t x 4?i inches. The face carries a presidential seal and the words, "Season's Greetings 1957." Inside, the cord reads. "The President and Mrs. Eisenhower extend their best wishes for Christmas and the New Year."

He said they were going to members of the Cabinet, justices of the Supreme Court, members of Congress nd Ihe heads of various governmental agencies in addition to the list of friends. Hawks asked port that it is not poasible for the "While House to fill requests from the general public for copies of the cards.

After the various classes are de- lassrnom. tc-rmined, teachers d! such classes! find that the reading abilities of students still vary. Each classroom therefore, is split into alxjui three groups in order that children might sludy in a group in which they are best qualified to sludy. "One nf (he pnahlems which faced school teachers in the past was (hat. children who were not r.u the advanced levels were unable lo keep up with others in (he same classroom. Therefore, this caused the advanced children lo slow down while the teacher helped Hie slower ones, or lhat fbe slower UTies became so far behind that had a tendency to give up. .students find theinselvi iir.e reading levels, and the tendency for the slow loose interest bas become almost extinct. Children who are not on the advanced level get special materials to aid their study, the principal said. Many need special emphasis on the skills of reading. Last vear was the first year in which this program was conducted at tin; McDonald School. 11 proved to be successful and a tremendous aid to the students. FJiodes emphasized that toward the middle of the year it looked as though about one-half of the students in the lowest reading class would not be able to step up to thr second grade. But through a continuous effort of the teachers, three-fourths of tile class gra duated. This effort would not have been possible if Ihe classroom were mixed wth both advanced and low readers.
