In TROOP NEWS celebration of Girl Scout By ALICE FEINBERG HOUSE OF FASHION I want to let you in on a secret ... in fact it was such a secret that even I didn't realize it, until just a few minutes ago. Today is our anniversary! '• • Thats right, today this column is just 3 years old! I ! Big for it's age, don't you think? As is usual in a woman's life. I was looking lor something that I had put away, just so it would be safe, (and I guess it must be safe, I haven't found it yet) when I came across the first of these efforts. My husband, methodical soul that he is, had put it away and dated it, or I never would have known . . . the first column, I mean. Honestly, I have so much fun writing these, that I never realized that so much time had already elapsed. That column, as is normal, was written when it was pretty close to Easter . . . and here we are in the same spot . . . pretty close to Easter. I would almost every woman wants, needs, dreams about, schemes for. and eventually gets, a new Easter outfit. I am sure that you have been thinking along those very lines.

GMFF1N Spokeeroao for the League oi Women Voter* Does Johnny always find enough to read in his classroom? A child in the Goose Creek schools is taught to read quite well, but in many instances may not have the right books to encourage him to keep reading. For eample, a fictious Johnny in the third grade may have to make do with reading books either too hard or too easy. He may not be able to find interesting books that are suitable for him or about his favorite subject. He may not even be allowed to take home the books that he does find. For this reason, an interest has arisen in establishing libraries in the Goose Creek elementary schools. The League of Women Voters of Baytown, with the cooperation of the school administration, undertook a survey of the elementary school library situation in the entire district and surrounding area. Questionaires were sent to every elementary school teacher and principal in the Goose Creek school district. Almost 100 per cent were completed and returned. When the results were tabulated and charted tiie survey snowed a wide variance in the type and number of books available. Strangely, the survey indicated that the size or location of the school or the grade studied bad no bearing on what was offered the student. In other words, a student who had an excellent selection of books in one grade might find that he had very few books and almost no reference materials when he was promoted to the n«xt grade. At present each elementary school classroom has its own collection of books for which the individual teacher is responsible. This system seems to account for the great discrepancy in the number of books and the range of reading levels that exist in Goose Creek classrooms. One first grade teacher said that she had more than 500 books, but another had a little less than 40. Books of many different levels and subjects should be available for each child to stimulate his interest and to keep pace with his growing ability. Even when classes are grouped according to ability there needs to be a wide range of reading levels. In the Goose Creek schools this range does not always exist. For example, three fifth grade teachers stated that they have no books beyond the fifth grade level. At the end of the fifth grade, students should be reading at sixth grade level; in these three fifth grades there is little opportunity for students to be on a par with others whei they enter the sixth grade. It needs to be pointed out that there are many excellent teachers in the Baytown schools and many classes where students have excellent books to read and good reference materials to aid them in their studies However, if Baytown is com initted to equal opportunities for its children, the present sys- 1 ! tern is not adequate. Some teachers are also hampered by this system. Expert-] enced teachers who have been! here for years have had time to gather excellent collections! and reference materials, but beginning teachers and those new to the system are seriously handicapped by having few books. The statements made in this article are based on data from the League of Women Voters of Baytown report on libraries in the Goose Creek schools. Those interested in getting more information are invited to attend a program at fee Sterling Municipal Library at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. The program will include a movie depicting a model elementary school library. Also, a complete report of the league's findings is on file at the library. This is the first in a series of articles. The next article will describe an elementary school library and the librarian who is the teacher's ally and the student's helper.
