Firday and next Satur- daV* in the school auditorium, 2lf E. Indian School. The three-act play, a pioneer in the field of reader's theater, is described by the author as "an attempt to find a value above all price for the smallest events in our daily We." Purpose of the play is to develop a deeper appreciation for the everyday happenings which it portrays. To aid in its simplicity, props generally are not used. However, under the direction of David Coats, Scottsdale High drama teacher, "Our Town" will include music, props and dancing. Senior Monte Gagg is composing original music to be played by guitar. Admission is 50 cents. WOW! 8 91. Mug I SPECIAL : Aprils thru 11 HJAI^ •.ftjCwJiTt ViKtolt Avt. u V 434 f ' McOQwtU Rd, present, 1956 being the year they switched to 12-volt systems. How could you make such a mistake? — Burned Dear Burned: You're right, of course, and I was wrong, My only excuse is a weak one — I relied on memory, and I remembered incorrectly. I'm sorry, and I'll try to keep such goofs from happening again. Dear Mike: I have a 1967 Ford short- wheelbase pickup with the 240-inch six and standard three-in-the-tree transmission. Would like to put a four-speed in same. What would this involve? — Powerless Dear Powerless: It's an easy swap — any mechanic can do it, and it shouldn't be expensive once you get the new tranny. But I feel you're laboring under an illusion. A four-speed truck transmission merely has lower ratios, and except for more stump-pulling power, you won't notice much increase in over-all performance. • * • Dear Mike: Please give me the truth — are the engines in Olds F-85s manufactured by Chevrolet and also installed in Chevrolets? Likewise, I've heard that late-model Studebaker engines were made by Chevy. The 6-cylinder engines used by both F-85 and Buick Special have been supplied by Chevrolet for several years. They're the 250- cubic-inch, 155-hp power- plants, same as in Chevys. Stude used Chevy V-8s toward the end of that company's production run. More want college Summer jobs help students By NANCY GILBERT Gilbert Youth Service The old notion that college Is practically a necessity for boys, but for girls merely a nice experience, doesn't hold water with today's young men and women. Of the hundreds of young college students surveyed recently 75 per cent said that it is the duty of financially • able parents to provide col* lege education for their sons; 73 per cent believe this also applies to daughters. "Any parent should want his children, whether male or female, to be prepared for life as much as possible," said Clyde Faehner of Riverton, Wyo. William Stroud III of Silver Spring, Md., reminded "that to educate a male is to educate one person; to educate a woman is to educate a nation." The majority of young people believe that it is the parents' basic responsibility to educate their children to the best of their ability. But that doesn't mean the parents alone should be expected to bear the entire financial burden. Three out of four said that students should work during the school year to help earn money toward their expenses. And a hopping 98 per cent said it is a student's responsibility to work during summer vacations. Less than 15 per cent believe the situation should change if there is no financial need. "Working during the summer helps a person grow; it is a self-imposed hardship, good discipline and affords an appreciation of life," said Michele Biodon, 21, of San Jose, Calif. Most young people agree, that if a student is able to carry his schoolwork without too much difficulty, working during the school year is to bis benefit. In addition to teaching a young person the value of a dollar and giving him a sense of responsibility, they claim, a part time job makes him appreciate the free time he does have, improves his general attitudes, requires him to develop a sense of organization and makes him aware of life outside the college ghetto. Those opposed to a student's working part-time argue that it's too difficult to work and to maintain good grades. Everyone agreed that no one should work so many hours that his health and grades are endangered. Fifteen hours of work a week is generally considered the most any student should attempt.
