(17) How to Take Notes By The Reading Laboratory, Inc. Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association We've discussed the relationship between the textbook and the lecture—how you can save time by overviewing the text the night before class and then taking class notes only on what is not mentioned in the text. Which brings us to the problem of taking effective notes. Or, more precisely, to the A flat bottom pan that is not of heavy gauge will warp easily under heat. So check the gauge before buying. READ THE WAN! ADS! problem of becoming an effective listener. Most high school teachers and almost all college teachers use the textbook only as a course guide. They expect you to read the text on your own to get background understanding. They use the lecture periods to develop material which is inadequately covered in the text, to provide you with sidelights on the topics under discussion and to clear up any questions which the text may have raised. Many times only half of the exam questions will come from the textbook; the other half will come from the lectures. So you have three choices: buy a tape recorder, learn stenography or learn how to be a good listener. Your teacher can talk at a rate of about 150-200 words a minute. The very best stenographers can't take dictation that fast, so don't try to write down everything a teacher says. You can't write that fast; you'll get confused and you may even miss an important part of the lecture. Here's the way a good note taker operates: • He overviews his text the night before. He's on familiar ground during the lecture. He takes notes only on what is not in the textbook. • When he does take notes, he listens; he doesn't just scribble. He assumes that if a teacher wants something taken down exactly (perhaps a definition), he'll say so. The good note taker listens for the main idea of the lecture before he starts writing. • As the teacher introduces each major point, our ideal listener makes a short note to pin down the topic. Then he just listens and tries to understand the teacher. He may write down occasional fine distinctions that the teacher is fond of. When the teacher finishes each major point, our hero makes a short summary of it and starts to listen for the next big point. • The good note taker is always active and questioning; he tries to anticipate what the teacher is going to say. That way, he's able to concentrate; his mind doesn't wander. You may have noticed that there's a great deal of similarity between our ideal note taker and our ideal reader. They both go after the main idea; they're both active and questioning; they both try to figure out what's coming. And they both have an easy time of it in school, so start working on your listening now. One more point — if a certain class or a certain teacher bores you and you can't help daydreaming, try listening spurts (the same way that you study). Concentrate hard for 10 minutes, then take a 5-minute daydream break, then listen for 10 more minutes, take another break and so on. It's not the best way of attending class, but it's better than daydreaming all the time. Next: sure.) How to study so you're Set Allona Meeting ALTONA - The Altona Mothers of World War II will meet Tuesday at 2 p.m. at the home of Mrs. Ruth Keener. Mr. and Mrs. H. C.

Studebaker Changes Styles, Cars 'Grow' by 6 Inches Studebaker Corp. has instituted new styling for its 1964 model cars. The trend is away from the compact appearance for which Studebakers were noted the past few years, and most models are six inches longer than in 1963. Fender lines are longer and are sharply squared both front and rear. The top feature of the new models is the grille styling, giving the 72-inch actual width a wider appearance. Headlamp areas are recessed and hooded to help protect lights from damage. The lower priced series, Challenger and Commander, have one headlamp on each side, and the Daytona and Cruiser models have quad lamps. A total of six separate lines offer a total of 13 different body combinations. Lowest priced is the Challenger, followed by the Conwwider. The major line this year aill be the Paytona with four body styles. The Cruiser, Hawk and Avanti round out the choices. Two new high-performance en­ gines have been developed by the firm's research staff and Andy Granatelli, director of performances evaluation. Cubic displacement of the R-3 supercharged engine totals 304.5 inches, and is the same for the R-4 unsupercharged engine. The Skybolt Six will displace 169.6 cubic inches, the small V-8 will displace 259 cubic inches and develop 180 horsepower and the Thunderbolt V-8 will displace 289 cubic inches with 210 horsepower. With six choices of transmissions, the company also offers several selections in rear axle ratios. With the two basic V-8 engines, ratios range from 3.07 for maximum economy through 3.31 and 3.73 for top performance. The new engines come with a choice also of 4.09 and 4.55. Disc brakes, pioneered in 1963 for American cars by Studebaker, will be continued again this year as an option on all Ji''«!vw.,i|f STUDEBAKER CHANGES STYLES - Biggest word for Studebaker for 1964 is the change in styling. The cars are about six inches longer than the 1963 models and have lost much of the "compact" look they had the past few years. The buyer will have a large choice of engine-transmission-rear axle combinations. cars except Avanti, which has them standard. The company will continue to use 15-inch wheels for larger braking surfaces, cooler run­ ning tires and improved road- ability. In its customer analysis, Studebaker finds the trend is toward deeper tones. This year it will offer four deep tone colors, Jet Green, Bermuda Brown, Strato Blue and Bordeaux Red. along with the lighter colors and traditional black and white.

Citizens Group at Roseville Works in Favor of HS Project ROSEVILLE—Efforts to familiarize all residents of the Roseville school district with the current problem of providing better high school facilities here are being made jointly by a Citizens Committee and the Board of Education, through reporting their deliberations at joint meetings, and the issuance of explanatory statements. The committee and board held a meeting last week, and will convene again Tuesday at 8 p.m. in the high school, working on arrangements for the election of Saturday, Oct. 26, at which the proposal to be voted on will be to build a completely new high school building on a site northeast of the present athletic field. The school district owns the 20-acre plot. All members of the committee and board have announced unanimous preference for building a new high school instead of trying to re-condition the old one, because they say they are convinced the new building is the more economical plan. One of their joint announcements today had this explanation: "The present three-story high school building, erected around 1900, has already served beyond its usefulness, and each year it is a greater hazard to the life of our young people. Complete walls have been replaced because of termite damage and other walls have settled as much as six inches. Several years ago it was nee essary to reinforce the chemistry room floor by a steel beam in stalled in the agriculture room below. On May 28, 1928, the present high school gym was voted upon, and plans for the one-story addition were started in October 1938, tying the old building and gym together. "The Board of Education has been studying this problem with Benjamin A. Horn, architect, since 1958, and is convinced that alteration and repair costs would consume any savings effected by adding to the present building. In addition to this the entire student body would need to vacate for a least one year during construction and alterations at the present site. "Added to the unsafe condition of the 1900 three-story structure, and inadequate facilities in other respects, has been the increased high enrollment for several years. . . . The high school enrollment 10 years ago was 142, and now is at 229. The enrollment is expected to remain that high for the next three years, as estimated from census reports and present enrollments." The Citizens' Committee is a nonpartisan group of citizens who have been selected to become better informed concerning the proposed new high school building. Its members are: Swan Township — Don Mills, George Ault, Kenneth Anderson, Mrs. John Jones, and Mrs. Dale Huston. Point Pleasant Township—Mrs. Hazel Miller, Mrs. Beulah Carlson, Mrs. Kate Grant, Edwin Post Vote on Kirkwood Bonds KIRKWOOD—A special election to vote on the question of issuing tax-secured sewerage bonds will be held in Kirkwood Saturday Oct. 5.
