Sounds kind of paradoxical, doesn't it? But, oddly enough, those students who can disagree with their teacher or textbooks are the ones who get the best marks. What do we mean by disagreeing? Simply this: every question has two sides to it. Your teacher will take one; your textbook probably won't take sides at all; you are perfectly free to take the other side—the one opposed to your teacher. Taking sides on an issue will not only make your courses much more interesting, it will show your teacher that you're making an effort to understand the subject matter. Don't feel you mast disagree; use your head. For you to stand up in physics class and shout, "I maintain that the atom cannot be split!" would be ridiculous. Here's an example of intelligent disagreement: In American history, your textbook and your teacher may tell you that the major causes of the Civil War were economic. That's a perfectly valid opinion. But it's just as valid to suppose that the major cause of the war was slavery. If you incline toward the latter view and can back up your opinion with some facts, don't hesitate to tell your teacher about it. He may convince you that you're wrong, or he may not; but if you have a well thought out opinion, he'll respect it. There's a catch to all of this, though. If you want to disagree with your teacher (and that's always fun), you'll have to do some extra work. A good plan is to read one non required book related to one of your courses each month. That's not much reading. If you spend only 15 minutes a day, you can finish a book a month easily. Actually, it's not really work, either. It's not the same as studying, for you'll never have to take a test on what you read on your own. At the same time, get into the habit of reading quality magazines (Harper's and the Atlantic are two) or even one of the weekly news magazines. At least some of the material in these magazines will relate to your schoolwork. To pot It la a nutshell, you 'll have to do more than take notes and study a textbook. They're pretty dull anyway. Read on your own— at least one book a month and one or two of the better periodicals. As you read, you'll find some things that don't agree with your textbook or your teacher—there are no absolute certainties in the physical or social sciences. When you do run across differences of opinion, check them out with your teacher; he may be able to resolve the differences for you. But, whatever you do, keep on reading; keep trying to find out for yourself. (NEXT: Learn the language of your course.)

Golesburg Register-Moil, Golesburg, Christmas Seal, Postage Stamp us Listed Thursday, Aug. 22, 1963 7 Desig Designs for the 1963 Christmas S-cent postage stamp and the Christmas seal of the National Tuberculosis Association have been announced by J. Edward Day, postmaster general, and Peter W. Janss of Des Moines, Iowa, NTA president. The postage stamp for Christmas, first of which was introduced last year, carries a reproduction of the national Christmas tree on the eastern ellipse near the White House. It was designed by Lily Spandorf, Austrian-born artist, now painting in Washington, who became the third woman to design U. S. postage stamps. The Christmas seal has been designed for affixing in pairs or blocks of four, so two wintery scenes were reproduced, one a snowman and the other his snow- house. Scheduled to start Nov. 16, the poster campaign on 45,000 post office vehicles will carry the message, "Mail Early With Christmas Stamps—Use Christmas Seals." Channels Lacking CHICAGO (AP) - In th e efforts of the churches to achieve unity, they lack sufficient channels of communication with local congregations to enable them to make responsible decisions, the Rev. Dr. Harold E. Fey, editor of the Christian Century, told a Disciples of Christ meeting here. "If we do not really create the means by which our denomination can act on a democratic and representative basis, all of our protestations of ecumenicity will not avail to change the imagf of sectarianism," he said.
