Naf I Education Wk. "Help Schools Bridge the Gap" between young people and adults, between Americans of different color and point of view, between rich and poor, and between promise and performance. The dilemma of today's schools--with their still too high dropout rates, the minimal learning on the part of many who remain in school, and the growing alienation among the young of all colors and classes—will be the focus of American Education Week to observed here and across the nation October 24-30.

It is 'the time of year when the public is urged to come in and see firsthand what goes on Inside the classroom. We want interested parents and citizens to find out for themselves what areas need improvements and, more important, what the opportunities are for their Implementing needed changes. Citizens should do more than observe; they should ask questions—of the school board and other officials—and they should give the officials the benefit of their recommendations.

The Boy' and Girl's Home has recently come under Grand Jury investigation after a report that control was lacking. Northwestern College sent 12 interns into summer social service work. Raechel's experience in Sioux City was valuable, she said. "Some of the kids would run away and stay out all night as was reported," said Raechel, "but that's not the whole picture. What they were trying to do was handle the kids in a relaxed atmosphere. They were trying to get them to be self sufficient, to study and to work on their own. They were all given responsibilities that they were supposed to do themselves." "It was stated in the paper that there were open food containers that were left out. The reason for this was that the kids that were 17 and 18 were being taught to cook for themselves so that they would know how to care for themselves when they get out of the: >home." "During my summer there, I found kids who were serious about working, doing a good job, and taking care of themselves. One thing I noticed was that there was a deep concern for one another." I was a cottage parent," Raechel said. "There was a regular summer school program going and I was a supervisor. I got the kids out of bed and urged the to do their chores. I worked eight hours a day. We ran a regular summer school program with such courses as science, math and reading. Some of the older children taught the younger ones, and I aided the older children in preparing their lessons. 1 used 23" Admiral Early American console TV starting at $ 215°° at 1 p. m. the price drops '10 every hour until if s sold I new West Bend Humidifier starting at $ 79 95 price drops $ 3 every hour until if* sold I new Admiral 2 3" Contemporary Console starting at $ 595°° price drops 75 every how until if s sold Other items being sold at Dutch Auction with prices drwwg hourt^ iiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimii 1 Sylvania Brings You _ • _ • Mm ••m Today's modern stereo - with either today's model style or yesterday's style of charming cabinetry Sylvania Matched Compact Syste Dwayne Plender made it quite clear to his customers, and anyone else passing by, that his wife Cheryl and he welcomed their 3rd child, Corey Grant, Into the family.
