Lorna Is a superb teacber.For jibe wants to enthuse her students about the courses she offers them. Since most students grumble about writing English themes, notice how you can add zest to this type of course! CASE U-S16: Lorna B.,aged 26, is a new English teacher. "Dr. Crane," she began,"! teach composition to Senior High Schoolers. "And I want to encourage them to write more effective letters, as well as stories. "But I have read your 'Worry Clinic' ever since I was in the 8th grade, so I know your stress on motivating people by use of psychology. "Since many of my pupils come from homes where they lacked an encyclopedia, a dictionary and any sress on correct grammar, I find that they shun English composition. "How can I add more zest and enthusiasm to my courses?" CONTESTS MOTIVATE Competition adds zest, so urge your students to write letters to the editor of their newspaper. Pick out various vital topics and then let the pupils compose short, snappy letters, preferably not over 200 words in length. This will help direct their attention to reading the daily newspaper. For they will be eager to see whose letters might be deemed worthy of being printed. Use the psychological rules in the booklet mentioned below, for they will improve your writing within 30 minutes! Also, employ current commercial contests as subjects for class themes. While teaching my "Psychology of Advertising" courses at Northwestern University, I often assigned current commercial contests. They usually required a 25-word or SOword letter in which you were to tell why you liked a certain soap or toothpaste, cereal, shampoo, etc. After my students submitted their letters as class assignments, we'd discuss them in class and offer various criticisms. Then some of the students would type them afresh and send them to the firm that sponsored the contest. A number of my students thus won small cash prizes, ranging from $1 up to $50. Others were awarded merchandise, such as a case of oranges or tuna fish, an electric iron, toasters, etc. Some enterprising English teachers have linked up with local dental societies, American Legion, or men's service clubs, such as Lions, Kiwanis, Rotary, etc. For such clubs will often donate prizes of $25, $15 and maybe 5 prizes of $5 each, for the best essays on why this is a Republic vs. a Democracy. Or why Capitalism far surpasses Communism. Or a 300-word essay explaining any one of the "10 Common Fallacies in Logic," as outlined in that booklet offered earlier this week. Indeed, a few teachers have even offered a small prize out of their own pocket for the prize winning "Letter to a Sweetheart" or to "Grieving Parents who have lost a Child," etc. That "League of the Golden Pen," also makes an ideal weekly project, for it requires only that you write a few paragraphs (one page at most) to anybody not on your regular mailing list but who merits a note of sympathy, praise or condolence. Let the students report later on the results, for sometimes very surprising stories develop that even pluck your heart strings! So send for my booklet "How to Write Salable Copy," enclosing a long, stamped, return envelope, plus 25 cents Lorna used it and changed the outlook of her entire class! (Always write to Dr. Crane, Hopkins Bldg., Mellott, Indiana 47158, enclosing r. long, stamped, addressed envelope and 25 cents to cover ., jing and printing costs when you send for one of hit booklets). ANNUAL ANTLERS ALBANY, N. Y. (AP) - All winter long, bucks in the deer herd have looked just like all the rest of the deer. Paul M. Kelsey, New York regional conservation educator, says that the mechanics of deer antler growth have fascinated people for centuries. Antlers of the deer famUy are replaced annually, distinctly different from the horns of antelope, buffalo or domestic cattle, which simply adds additional external growth each season. Scientists think that increased sunlight is picked up by the deer's eye and passed to the pituitary gland located at the base of the brain. This gland then stimulates the start of antler growth. By mid-May, growth has started. After the breeding season, the buck's antlers are shed for the winter. Infancy To Old Age TV Log By C.R. BATTEN It was almost 20 years ago that this observer was first introduced to some of the stifling work rules under which the railroads operate. It was my first tree planting season "working on the railroad." We had purchased something over 200,000 tree seedlings, and it was my job to see that they were planted during a three-week period. The trees had been loaded in a refrigerator car, which was parked on a siding near the planting operation. The car was spotted in an inconvenient place, so I innocently asked our tractor operator to push the car down the track a few feet. He refused, On questioning, I learned that if he had moved the car, an entire switch crew could have turned in time slips and collected one day's pay. Spotting the car was it's job, under union contract rules. The railroad ran a fast passenger train between Chicago, Illinois, and Minneapolis, Minnesota. During that six-hour trip, three train crews were used-each of them receiving one day's pay. A major switch yard was closed in order to speed freight train schedules and improve operating efficiency. Yet a switch crew continued to report at the yard every day, and received a full day's pay-tor doing nothing; These are just a few of the instances of "featherbedding"' with which I am personally familiar. Clarence B. Carson describes how these and other restrictions came about in his THROTTLING THE RAILROADS. (Available from The Foundation for Economic Education, Inc., irvington-on-Hudson, New York 10539; 143 pages, $400 cloth cover, $2.00 paperback.) Dr. Carson is an educator, author and lecturer, specializing in American social and intellectual history. In his book, Carson traced the history of the railroad industry from its subsidized infancy to its subsidized old age. "Government throttled the railroads in three ways mainly," wrote Carson. "In the first place, restrictive regulation took away crucial managerial authority from the railroads and vested it in the Interstate Commerce Commission. This was supplemented, in turn, by various legislative inhibitions of general application. In the second place, government subsidized and otherwise privileged competitive means of transport. In the third place, government fostered the organization of railway unions and aided them in various ways in circumscribing and hamMrintmg the use of rail facilities " "A state of organised irresponsibility wafc established .,." according to Carson, "the power to make managerial decisions of wide and determinmg scope was vested in the Interstate Commerce Commission. The responsibility for operation the railroads remained with private management. But that management was denied the authority to make on its own all sorts of decisions by which entrepreneurs ordinarily operate businesses efficiently and successfully." His book is a clear and .easy-to-read indictment of government intervention in the railroad transportation industry. In unmistakeable language, he declares " THE PRESENT TRANSPORTATION MESS IS A RESULT OF GO VERNMENT INTERVENTION" (emphasis his). THROTTLING THE RAILROADS is recommended reading for every member of Congress, every railroad executive, and every railroad shipper or would-be passenger who has said that Congress should "do something"about the railroads. For Carson makes it eminently clear what Congress should do.

NEW YORK (AP),- Any television Mftel tttii ton| title such it "Jht J«ty Reed When You're Hot Ywi're Hot Show" immediately gives the veteran viewer mii|lv«ngi. Jerry Reed, who'i he? CBS mint hive been nervow to tag the show with his hit record. The network, replacing the canceled "Glen Campbell Show" with a summer variety hour, seems to have found a reasonably exact facsimile of Glen Campbell. Reed Jaundi Nashville, looks Jack .Armstrong-American and talks humbly. At the same time he seems to be a an attractive country singer who has been bushWacked by a roving band of Hollywood variety show writers. He seems to have been too polite or ambitious to say he'd rather go along with his own thing. It was not a bad show Tuesday night, the premiere of the series, but it did seem to be phony, very Hollywood and carefully designed to hold a little something for everybody. As often happens to formula- based plans, it may have irked more often than it enchanted.
