S-D—LUWOCK AVALANCHE-JOURNAL—Friday Morning, April 4, 1975 Auti - Discrimination Program Aims At MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The teacher holds out two packages to.her first grade class. One is neat, and brightly wrapped, the other dirty and sloppily wrapped. "One for me and one for you," she (.ells the students. ''Which one do you want?" Umdly and unanimously, tlie children pick the pretty pack- aye. They are dismayed upon opening it to find dirt, ashes end to young discriminatory at-,live Americans were the least ar/i broken glass. Inside the teacher's package is candy. "Now that shows you titudes that too often fester into adult bigotry. "The. goal is to help children understand and respect the differences in others and themselves," said Mrs. Cummings, whose new program is being usev.l in kindergarten, and firm and second grades. She said it seems to be working because teachers report far fewer incidents involving name- American and least human of all," she said. "They see all hcsc things on TV about Indians scalping and burning, and hey can'l get them out of their minds." calling and other more cruel dirty: youthful harassments. By conducting exhaustive you tests and interviews with chi! aii't tell what things "are like jdren, Mrs. Cummings identified on the inside just by looking at iwhat types of "differences on me inside just by looking the outside,'' she says. "It's theimeun lame way with people." jKroin The demonstration is part ol [training course to show teaeh- ari innovative "individual dif-lcrs-how to handle stereotyping the most to children there, she developed jhe suici that children also show strong prejudices against anyone different, 'including re- ;arded, physically handicapped, poor, fat, skinny and minoritj children. The thrust of the program, through c'lassroom activities and displays, is that everyone s different in some way, and he difference is nothing to be ashamed of or ridiculed. We often use puppets 5n ittle playlets, with the children assuming various roles," Mrs. Cummings said. She said the antidiscrimina- tion indoctrination also extends to prejudices against girls and children with emotional lems. 'There's a Jot of sexism in the first, grade," she said. "For instance, Indian girls are not as bad as boys because they just take care of babies and don't hurt anyone, and fat boys aren't as bad as fat girls because the fat boys can be full- prob- backs. It's part of the whole beauty thing." She said 70 per cent of the parents of the 4'ilO children in the program this year have attended workshops to help them cope witli juvenile discrimination at home. "Not one i>arent has expressed any misgivings about the program," said Mrs. Cummings. "They know what it's like to be ridiculed, too." Other activities in the class include stories by teachers and bulletin board figures symbolizing both biased and unbiased attitudes. Teachers also help children to pronounce different types of religions.^ "We just want them to have some familiarity with the different religions so that they at least don't think Muslim is a disease," said Mrs. Cummings. "We're not teaching them on* thing is right and another is wrong," she said, "We just want to shoiw them that, being different isn't ^necessarily bad. v IHtlVINU HINT DKTHO1T (UPI) Never lereiicos" program that, Madi- ja n d discrimination among son school human relations'youngsters, coordinator Marlcne Curnmin«s "It was amazing, but has developed to put an early'Children we- tested lh< speed through deep water or gun the engine when driving through a flooded area.

INVESTORS'GUIDE By SAM SHULSKY have had a chance to sit down with a banker or broker you trust (not necessarily over a free dinner). A cardinal rule here is to ignore anyone who tells you to make a 100 per cent plus easy accessibility. Would you suggest money management funds? A. Going by your requirements — yes. But keep in mind that at your age you should shift of your funds and to do it also be looking for capital gams — which often means some degree of risk and lessened li(|Uid- -I p.m. today.
