Thursday. March JO. 1966 13 THIS IS THE FIRST year of organization for the Baytown Classroom Teachers Association, headed by Bill Parrish, president, » teacher at Robert E. Lee High School. Standing, left to right, are Gus Walters, treasurer; Parrish, and Fred Adams, parliamentarian. Seated are Mrs. Mary Dodson, secretary, and Bill Rogers, vice president. 'MODERN EDUCATION'HAS BECOME A COMMON TERM (EDITOR'S NOTE: BUI Par- .to believe, while in others the rish ,a civis teacher at Robert E. Lee High School and president of the Baytown Classroom Teachers Association, wrote this artic! e In observance of Public School .week.) The term modern education has been expounded the past several years until it has become common in usage among many parents and teachers. When knowledgeable persons speak of modem education they are referring to that educational trend which centers on the Individual student. This trend stresses the social application of knoweldge in all the areas of learning. It is the attempt to use every available resource to meet the needs of each individual student. It may come through the individual assessment by highly trained elementary and secondary school counselors armed with group and individual tests which provide the professional educator with valuable informa tion to aid in determining the ability and interest, as well a? the needs of each boy or gir!. In addition, practical courses are provided by which each child will be exposed to those basic fundamentals which will permit him to live successfully in the complex world iinto which he was born Where modern education is stressed, we no longer find emphasis being placed on know ledge for knowledge's sake. However, we do find the youth be- [ basic interest is in the under achiever and the slow learner. It is sad, but so often true, that we show so much interest in these two extremes that we forget the vast majority of students — the average boy and girl. Supporters of modern education do not want to take away from the advancement made in the past. They want to build the future. They do not want to "lag behind" and become "outdated." They want to be in the front seeking the best for the student. Such people are willing to provide things necessary for such a program. It may be additional classrooms, new books for the library, a new bass drum for the band, a workshop for auto mechanics, increase in the salaries of classroom teachers, or a thousand and one other things. However, whatever it may be— physical facilities, instructional materials or qualifier personnel —one interest is above all others an dthat is the individual student, the hope of our country.

Housing — (Continued From Page 1) people living in Archer Courts were not in the lower income bracket and that this is resulting in people in the lower income bracket being deprived of adequate housing. "We are well aware that laws 'oust be obeyed and \v e are not trying to get around them," Rev. Finney said, "but we think some of the policies of the housing authority, or the manner in which they are being carried out, are wrong and that th e public needs to be made aware Of this. 1 Rev. Finney said after Tay- jlor took over as executive di- i rector of the housing authority jthat he 'immediately went up jfrom SI to 56 on late charges on rent." Bob Martin, chairman of the housing authority board, said Thursday the late charge had not been increased. Mayor Cravey told the group he did not know whether the rity council had authority to order an investigation of the housing authority, and that he would try to find out who the group should appeal to. He suggested that they should appeal to the housing authority board oJ supervisors. Rev. Finney said they would be at the board's next meeting. Beach -- (Continued From Page 1) "We have assured Mont Belvieu residents that we have no objections to the incorporation of their community," Cravey said. "But we have asked them to wait until we can extend the protective strip encircling that area." Mayor Cravey said that he believes the council members feel the same way about the Tri - City Beach area. But he added, "There are some problems." He pointed out that formation of Beach City could prevent the continued extension of the protective strip along the Tri-Ciry Beach Road because the road right - of - way would be within Beach City's one - half extraterritorial control area. In order for Baytown to continue its annexation to encircle the U.S. Steel tract after formation of Beach City, th e protcc- .tive strip would have to be moved out one-half mile from Beach City boundary. That would result in annexation of | taxable property, xvhich the city j council has tried to avoid in its protective annexation. With Beach City's permission, however, Baytown could c o n- tinue to annex along the Tri- City Beach Road right - of-way and Baytown and Beach City could have a common boundary line- Chambers County Judge Oscar F. Nelson Jr. served as the main spokesman for the Tri City Beach area group. Judge Nelson displayed a map showing the area planned for incorporation. All of the area is south of the Tri - City Beach Road, and it does not include the road right-of-way. In addition to the area that the Tri - City Beach residents now can include in their proposed municipality, they would like to include an area extending east to Barrow's store, which is within Bay-town's extra - territorial control. During a recent city council meeting, the Tri - City Beach group asked that Baytown withdraw its protective finger to the Cedar Bayou bridge. There was no such request during the Wednesday night meeting. Mayor Cravey said the city council has no plans for annexing any privately owned property in the Tri - City Beach area. He explained that providing of city services to the area would be impractical. Mrs. Eloise Jordan, president of the Tri - City Beach Civic Association, said residents of the area are interested in the incorporation of their community. The area residents hope to vote April 5 on incorporation. A petition for calling the election was received by Judge Nelson approximately three weeks ago. There is a possibility that the election may be delayed a few days by the efforts to reach an agreement with the city council. Mayor BATTOWN MAYOR Seaborn Cravey, right center, met Wednwday afternoon at city hall with a group of resident* «f Archer Courts and other federal boosing unit* for Negroes to diaeau their request for an Investigation of the admin- iatrative arm of the Baytown Housing Authority. The protest group WM led by the Rev. R. L. Flnney, representing the Greater Baytown C*vic League, and Woodrow Lewis, Precinct 248 chairman and member of the board of directors of the Baytown Human Relations Council. Dr. Flnney stands at the mayor's left and Lewis at his right. Others in the group were not identified. (B&ytown San X'hoto) Cravey assured the Tri - City Beach area residents that he would call a special council meeting if necessary to expedite approval of the agreement. Other city officials present at the Wednesday meeting were Councilmen Clem Massey anc. Donnie Hullum, who are members of the council's annexation committee, and City Attorney George Chandler. Other residents of the Tri-City Beach area who attended included J. D. Nicholson, Mrs. Ruth Hoover, George Armer and Bill White. Judge Nelson said he would attend the Thursday night council meeting to represent the Tri- City Beach area group. 15% Term Gas 23% Texaco 75% Texas Eastern 20% Texas Gulf Sul 116*i Tidewater • 45 J £ Union Carbide Union Oil of Cal United Air Lines 118% Upjohn Drug 74% U S Steel 50% Western Equities 52% Westingnouse * 63^4 Xerox 226% Cable TV (Continued From Page 1) behind - the - scene jockeying by interested persons during The last week. Bill Chamberlain of the Houston advertising and public relations firm Kaplan - Chamberlain, Inc., came to Baytown and contacted both Lanham and Chandler about submitting a proposal. Lanham said he advised Chamberlain that he did not know whether the council would consider any additional proposals. He added that he told Chamberlain that if he submitted a proposal, a letter requesting the council to consider it should be attached. The city manager reported that no letter was attached to the proposal that he received Wednesday from Chandler. j Name of the company given | on the third proposal is "Bay-j town CATV." I Chandler said Thursday that he had no information on ownership of the company. He suggested contacting Chamberlain about the matter. A telephone call Thursday to Chamberlain in Houston failed to reveal the company's ownership. Chamberlain said his firm represents a "group of people under the nam e of Baytown CATV." Chamberlain said Joe Zorn, a Baytown attorney will represent the group at Thursday night's rity council meeting. Mayor Cravey is interested in the council awarding the contract for a community antenna franchise as soon as possible. The mayor, who is a history teacher at Hoi-ace Mann Junior High School, believes CATV offers great educational opportunity. Thursday night's council -neeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. The CATV franchise matter is listed far down on the council Elmer Ballard Sr. Is Dead At 68 Funeral services for William Elmer Ballard Sr., 68, of 105 E.
