tlio Valley 2 bands to salute Art Museum's 10th By MAGGIE WILSON Well, it's all over but the ; dancing . . . and there will be plenty of that at the Phoenix Art Museum's fabulous 10th Anniversary Ball at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel Nov. 12. The Gringos and Bob McGrew's Society Orchestra will play continuously from the dinner to the witching hour with only a pause for a speech by 'Mitchell ,Wilder, director of the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. The $100 - a - couple event promises to be the , most elegant party of the season. The entire membership of the museum will celebrate the birthday — kickoff for six months of special events. * * * And the Biltmore this coming weekend will begin an open - to - the - public Sunday brunch from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and dancing from noon to 3. All that and six different THE ARIZONA REHJKLIO women s Wednesday, Nov. 5, 1969 Page 31 kinds of omelet prepared before your very eyes for $3.75. Sunday also marks the opening of a one-man art show at Vagabond House in Sedona with the works of Steve Juharos, a native of Hungary. According to his Scottsdale representative, Buck Saunders of .the gallery of the same name, Juharos does exquisite Oak Creek water colors, palatte knife landscapes — hastily brushed and authentically detailed — and slick portraits in oils, types like Cardinal Mindszenty, President Eisenhower, Prince Otto von Habsburgh, Princess Regina von Sachsen Meiningen. Sen. Barry Goldwater and some of the Flagstaff Babbitts, by gum. . . The annual El Charro Lodge party Halloween night reminded many guests again of the joys of outdoor fireplaces, which are perfect for Arizona's November-to-April e v e n- ings, but so seldom a part of the Arizona patio picture. The one at El Charro reminded one party guest of a recent press party Polly Bergen tossed during the West Coast fashion week. Her outdoor fireplaces are spotted hither and yon behind white wicker and canvas furniture and colorful tossed pillows accents. The fireplaces are sprinkled in there between bars under palm trees and all are adjacent to the brick-walled lofted screening room. And for her party, Polly put litle tents near the fireplaces and filled them with types like palmists, vibrationists, astrologers and graphologists to keep her guests entertained when they weren't staring into the nearest fireplace. Doesn't it all sound fun? And it was done by Frank Austin, a former Phoenix interior designer who is now in the employ of one of those chic Beverly Hills studios. Polly, by the ways, sings no more. She is concentrating on peddling all that turtle oil. Also the cosmetics and a new perfume, too. '• ' Republic-Photo by Earl McCartney Mrs. Tanna McGlothin previews the day's work with aide Mrs. Dennis Pasaribu Teacher's aides win classroom approval By GINGER BUTTON Mrs. Dennis Pasaribu moved from table to table among the second graders, making a suggestion here, answering a question there, patting a small shoulder, gen- j;ly reminding a noisy child Jjhat his project waits, unfinished. ;,;;"Why don't you make the |rjangles a little bit larger? |>o. you need some help, L'ucy? That's very good. All right, who needs to trace the cat? Danny, are you finished?" Mrs. Pasaribu is not a teacher. She is one of the school's latest solutions to heavy class load problems. She is education's Gal Friday — the teacher's aide. Mrs. Pasaribu, like many teacher's aides, has had no college education, no educational training, She's simply a housewife whose children attend school in the Roosevelt District where she works. Her qualifications, say her employers, are those of an ideal teacher's aide. She is re'sourseful, flexible, patient, has an excellent sense of humor and loves working with children. 'During her four hours a dgy at Rio Vista School, 4001 $*',3rd St., Mrs. Pasaribu spends time in the classrooms of;: three or four different teachers '— listening patiently to,! slqw readers, recording t§st SQoresj, taking attend- apce, preparing craft matq- r$ls, operating the m'imeo* gjraph machine — stepping in wherever the teacher asks her whenever she, herself, he need. Mrs. Pasaribu coaches Roleana Aguilara, 7 f&Mrs. Pasaribu has a lot of tjve, which I consider in> t,?' said second grade Mrs. Tanna Mo don't have to tell her every move to make. If I'm busy with 8 student and it's recess time, she will go ahead and line up the others for recess. I've had aides where I spent more time explaining to them what to do than they spent helping me. The ideal situation would be to have an aide that could stick with you, that's personally your own—so you could work together as a team." Robert Henderson, Rio Vista principal, believes aides are an, invaluable help to the teacher and would like to see each of his instructors have such assistance several hours a day. But the district budget only allows the school a total of three-^-two pf whom work six-hour days, A fourth woman devotes her time, without pay, three hours a week* "The aide helps eliminate book work and frees the teacher for actual teaching," points out Henderson. "In an individualized reading program, you just about have to have one because a teacher couldn't do it herself. In the ideal situation, the teacher can do the original teaching, while the aide works with individuals who need special help." Rio Vista began incorporating aides into its teaching program three years ago when federal funds made it possible. "At first none of the teachers,wanted them," said Henderson. "They were afraid we'd hire aides and not hire teachers. But when they found this wasn't true and saw how the system could free them of much of the bookwqrk and preparatory work, everybody wanted them," Roosevelt School District has 31 aides spread among 12 schools. Phoenix Elementary School District employes 42 aides, who put in time at 15 of the district's 25 schools. Madison School District em- ployes approximately 65 at their seven schools. The number of aides now employed in most Valley districts is determined by the individual district's budget. Those in the lower economic areas have some aides provided for by federal funds. Aides in the Roosevelt District began at $1.60 per hour. The second year and thereafter they make top pay of $2 per hour. Salaries vary around this figure in other districts. "I would hope that eventually every classroom would have a fulltime aide," said Mrs. Mary Rill, curriculum supervisor for Rio Vista. "We are moving toward child-centered, individualized education, but good teachers cannot spread . themselves thin. I've heard for years this thing about taking each child where he is and doing what is right for him. But with growing enrollments, the teacher has a difficult time individualizing instruction. Aides are an inexpensive way of meeting the need for individualization." Although salary is no great drawing card for potential aides, there are other attractions. Mrs. Pasaribu appreciates the fact that she can pursue a career while her children are in school, but be home to meet them at the door, have dinner ready in time for her husband's, arrival and spend vacations with her family. She finds tremendous satisfaction in the work. . "It's close to being' a teacher," she says, "and it has some of the same rewards. I feel that by working with a child, by helping him solve his problems, by encouraging him to do his, best, I've helped him grow up into a better person." Arizonan world chili champ •JR. Lake Havasu's C. V. Woods strips title from Texan By FRANKIE MANLEY Arizonan C. V. Woods Jr. was proclaimed World Championship Chili Cook-Off king this weekend down in the "boom and bust, quicksilver mining ghost town of" Terlingua, Tex." two miles west of Big Bend National Park. Terlingua (population 3), right by Terlingua Creek, has three deserted buildings and is on a 265,000 - acre ranch jointly owned by car racer Carroll Shelby and David Witts, a Dallas lawyer who calls himself Terlingua mayor. A bystander noted and commented on a Houston rapid transit engineer who was in town for the event. "Terlingua is thinking about installing a system," Witts said. "We had expected a big band for the contest, but got a guitar player," Woods said in a telephome interview. "I got a fair deal down there in Texas," he added. The judges, including author, humorist and chili writer H. Allen Smith of Alpine, Tex., formerly of New York City, voted unanimously for Woods' Arizona Chili. Woods flew down to Terlingua, accompanied by his 10 member cheering section, all wearing T-shirts with red and - green lettering: "Undeniably World's Champion Chili Cooker C. V. Woods Jr." In Arizona, Woods is planner pf Lake Havasu City and president of McCulloch Oil Corp. Currently, his project is Fountain Hills, near, Orme Dam, 20 miles northeast of Scottsdale. "I was approached by Witts to see if I had a model ghost city program," Woods said. "I told him I'd think about it." "The Oasis," an old vacant adobe store front saloon, was the scene of the cook-off. Twelve hundred spectators cheered the chefs. Woods' chief opponent, Wick Fowler Connecticut parents okay sex training MANCHESTER, Conn. (WMNS) - In this typical American middle-sized town, chosen for the first scientific in-depth survey of parental attitudes toward sex education, three out of every four parents would require a high school course for all youngsters. Even more overwhelmingly, they approved integrating sex education into the total curriculum. Questioned by Roger Libby, a young University of Connecticut family relations graduate, a cross-section of parents approved of coeducational classes and free-wheeling discussion periods. Three per cent of the parents opposed any sex education at all. Another 15 per cent expressed only "partial approval." Many of the parents giving wholehearted approval still favored allowing dissenting parents the option to withdraw their children from a required course. Associated Pre*» Photo Chili king C. V. Woods Jr., Woody De Silva, Joe De Prates, Wick Fowler of Austin, Tex., the defending champion, got so mad he smashed his first runnerup chamber pot against the wall of The Oasis. "Wino" Woody De Silva of Los Angeles served champagne with his chili. Upon hearing the judges put him in third place, he fell off the Oasis porch in a fit of temper, so they said. Woods, of Lake Havasu City, owes his glory to his two-pronged chili-tester invention and "because I didn't use any storebought stuff." CHILI-TESTER INSTRUCTIONS: "Put one prong in the opponent's chili . . . nothing, then the other in my (Woods') chili. It registers 100 and sirens scream." An absence of stoves in Terlingua caused a temporary crisis, solved when camper stoves were offered by four spectators. United Press International reported 30 airplanes from as far away as Florida and California. Reporter Manley Women's Forum's authority on all things Texan and the Terlingua Creek chili superbowl in particular, is staff writer Frankie Manley, of Waco, Texas, a former staffer on The Dallas Morning News. Woods' Arizona Chili 5 pounds pork chops, fat and bones removed and diced in %-inch cubes 3 pounds beef filet, fat removed and diced in %-inch cubes 2-pound stewing chicken, stewed for two hours % teaspoon salt 4 teaspoons ground cumin 4 teaspoons ground oregano 3 teaspoons black pepper 2 cloves garlic, chopped or minced Va teaspoon pepper 1 cup chopped onion, % cup chopped onion 1 cup chopped bell pepper 2 cups stewed tomatoes 10 green chiles, seared on a grate over an open fire Fill a quart saucepan with quartered tomatoes, Vz cup celery chopped fine, Vz cup of the onions, Vs teaspoon salt, % teaspoon pepper. Cover with water and cook for three hours or until tender. After the chicken has been stewed for two hours, save one quart of the broth and throw the rest away. Put meats, stewed tomatoes, chiles that have been peeled, seeded and boiled for 10 minutes 'til tender, cut in %-inch squares; garlic, oregano, cumin, pepper and bring to boil and simmer one hour. Add remaining onions and pepper and one pint tomato juice. Simmer two hours and in the last five minutes, add 1 pound grated Monterrey Jack cheese. Add salt to taste if needed. Fowler accused De Silva of smuggling cans of California smog to drop in Texas and said De Silva didn't win because the fresh air diminished his skill. "Resentment" was keen with the ex-chili king Fowler. "There's no way Arizona chili could win out fair and square over my 1-alarm, 2-alarm and 3-alarm Texas chili. Wood probably added spinach to his to get green chili," he said. Pasadena (Tex.) News editor Tex Adams said of Texas chili: "We want to experiment and use it for printers ink to get 'hot news'. Then when a man reads his paper he can eat the words." "I'm having a big fight with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration now. They want me to label it 'habit-forming' ", Fowler said. There had been a statement by the Associated Press that Texas Governor Preston Smith's alleged support would keep Fowler "on the big end of the odds to retain his world title claim," which Woods quickly dispelled with his Arizona chili. The governor supposedly proclaimed Nov. 1 as Chili Appreciation Day in honor of the Chili Appreciation Society International's competition. An excerpt from his statement: "All citizens of this great state o f Texas should be warned of the concoctions being brewed in the community of Terlingua." Smith further warned that NASTY (National Artichoke Society for Texas Youth), an organization dedicated to sa-r botaging the nation's stomachs, might demonstrate, but they didn't appear. Woods, as World Champion Chili Cook-Off king, said he'll organize semifinals next year at Lake Havasu City and on to Terlingua for the big one.
