LB. $2.39; 3 Lbs. $6.49; 5 Lbs. $10.25 May Moved to New Location Across Street South of Courthouse By HARRISON WEBER | Mown Daily Press Writer) OTTUMWA — A comprehensive study of students attending Ottum- vv;i High School shows that students who neither own a car nor drive to. school regularly attain a higher scholastic standing than those who do. "These students definitely have the best attendance record, fewer tardiness, and attain a greater academic average," said Lewis E. Dye, assistant principal at Ottumwa High School, who was in charge of taking the survey. { The study definitely shows an increase in tardiness for those who drive to school regularly. "Many who drive to school regularly get a later start to school, drive around much more than they should, and occasionally have mechanical difficulties with the car. Many of these tardinesses occur during the noon hour." Dye stated. Absent More Absences are definitely greater than of those students who do not dme to school and those driving a car to school regularly have the poorest grade point average of all "It miuht he well to note." Dye commented, "that among this general group there are people who diive to school and take part in niter-school activities and particularly athletics. Practice often ends after the city buses have stopped ] running and a car is the only transportation home. This activity group does very little driving during the noon hour. Many of them and those students who live a great distance from school have p. fine grade average and help boost the grade average of the entire group of school drivers. "Again, those who drive to school and take little part in school activities are the attendance and tardiness problems as well as disciplinary cases. Our record definitely indicates this." Students who own their own cars have the poorest attendance record of all groups. Their tardinesses are greater than those who do not drive to school but less than those who do drive to school regularly. Their absenteeism is often due to their working on their car, ac- dording to Dye. "Occasionally during school hours, but more often after school and late at night when their time could be best devoted to some study and more sleep. Many also have to work to either pay for their cars or to buy gas. oi, tires, etc., and as a consequence they miss more school," Dye remarked. It is also interesting to note that as the number of extra-curricular activities increased, so did the grade curve increase. "The greatest depression in the grade curve was at 13 activities." Dye continued, "Rut that group still attained an average of 2.0 or one-tenth of a point shy of a straight B average." Activities Range The number ol activities participated in ranged (nun none to 17. The one person who look part in 17 activities attained an average of 4 'a straight A average Dye cautioned that this floes not mean that to receive higher grades that one has to be in a great number of activities "On the contrary, it shows that to participate in more and more activities, you must be a better student and a hotter organizer of time and tasks. "However. 1 feel that with some activity participation, there is a greater interest developed in school life in general and consequently less time is wasted and good study habits are developed. | "We have noted from day to day that pupils not taking part in activities are often discipline cases and have less interest in school. They are usually our greatest attendance problems. This definitely hears out that activities do have 1 a 'holding' power. Many of our dropouts have never taken part in school activities," Dye asserted By LEON DENNEN NEA Special Correspondent NEW YORK - (NEA) -Nikita Khrushchev's American tour is the triumph of the status seeker. The self-assured Khrushchev in the charcoal gray suit and diplomat's black homburg is a far cry from the ill-tailored little man who pushed and pushed to get out of the background at the Geneva summit conference only four years ago. Look at Khrushchev's acceptance of the Washington, New York or United Nations limelight. See him stride out ahead as if he belonged there. See him smile, make a wisecrack or simply gaze upon the ceremonies with the blandness of a billiken. Can this be the man you saw scrambling to get into the Geneva picture in 1055, you ask yourself. Several incidents which I witnessed while covering the summit conference come to mind as I view the current spectacle. . . ..The arrival of the Russians at the Geneva airport ... it is early morning and the sun is already scorching ... it glints off the medals on Marshal Zhukov's i chest. . . . Zhukov and Premier Bui- I ganin are the big shots. Zhukov the military hero of the Soviet Un' ion and Rulganin, bearded, perfumed and immaculate, is the rank, ing official ... the Marshal and 1 the Premier swing out to review ; the Swiss honor guard drawn up on the tarmac and as they do so a rumpled little man with stovepipe pants starts to scuttle after them ' . . . the Swiss protocol officer whispers something in his ear and I Nikita Khrushchev remains sulkily [ behind. . . . Un Washington. Khrushchev reviewed the troops at Andrews Air Force Base with aplomb equal to ! that of General Eisenhower, at his elbow.) ... Again humiliation. . . Bul­ ganin and Zhukov squeeze them: selves into an official limousine and start away, forgetting the party chairman •. . . Khrushchev runs after them . . . only after the limousine has started up do the Premier and Marshal realize that they have forgotten Nikita . . . Times Herald, Carroll, la. f% Tuesday, Sept. 22, 1959 Q the sweating fat man, his brown tie awry and his while shirt limp, pants aboard. . . . (In America, they even have elevated seats so Khrushchev won't disappear in the upholstery. He sits easily with his waving arm free and his non-waving arm stretched along the back of the cushions. Nobody gets away until he does.) . . . Always pressing . . . Khrushchev can give aces and spades and beat ambitious Hollywood extras at scene stealing ... he contin- ually pushes into the photographs, knowing that prestige is measured among the bureaucrats back home by your distance from the lens when the official photos are made, he's adroit at making the bit shots turn and look at him by making a wisecrack just as the cameramen are about to shoot . . . sometimes he steps between two of the leaders and is snapped as if they were in conversation with him. . . . (Even now. secure in the knowledge the worl.1 lens is focused upon him, he cannot help stealing the , scene. He fidgets awaiting a trans- , lation, allows his eye to follow a I butterfly, toys with his homburg.)
