John L. Bracken, superintendent of schools at Clayton, Mo., addressed the final session o£ the twq-rday- Arkansas Education Association convention. ''No matter how much .money fs involved," Bracken sa'd, "You 1 can't improve by turning jour back on proven methods and going back to the old ' apprentice method of getting .1 teacher's cer- i tifica'te." " The Ford Foundation plan envisions four-years of general college education for prospective teachers ' w i t h another year of teaching "internship." Earlier .yesterday Dean Henry H. Krbnenbcrg of the University of Arkansas College 'of Education had outlined "probable" suggestions, he said i.'.ade .to the Ford Foundation-in a detailed set-up to effect the · proposal. Dean Kronenberg is chain lan of a 36-member cbmmitt"p drawing up the plan, which the speaker stressed is still in the formative stage.. No Plan Yet Developed Kronenberg-emphasized I h a t no "Ford plan" has yet been com- ple'ted, ami said he can't see how individuals and organizations can either favor or condemn it. If the committee agrees on a plan, he said, it. will be submitted to the Ford Fund for the Advancement of Teacher Education for approval. The plan a|so will bo yiasscd on to the Advisory Council on Teacher Education, the Arkansas Board: of Education, and then to the people of the state for approval, Kronenberg explained. Kronenberfi said the committee seems agreed that students under the Ford program srjould spend about halt their time during 1 the first four years on general education--with most of, the general education in the first two years. In the f i f t h year, students would receive Instructions on the campus "then move lo ijfirl-time teaching nnd then .'in full-time," Ihe dean declared. Future touchers would probaBty get their- degrees it. the end of the fourth year. The committee Is discussing giving academic credit--up lo 12 1-ours--nrd a small .stipend lo Ilflh-yonr students. They would probably take (heir f i f t h year of CONTINUED ON 1'AOJ! NINE Cosf-Of Living Pay Boost For Those In Armed Services May Be Approved Monday Washinfiton-(/I*)-Scnate leaders were confident today they have signals set for passase Monday of a bill giving all persons in the nation's uniformed services a cost- of-Hving pay boost. This apparently was assured late yesterday w h e n unanimous consent was obtained to limit debate and vote on all amendments and the bill itself Monday. As the measure stands it would arid an extra 471 million dollars tn the pay of an estimated 3,600;000 persons in the seven uniformed services during the next fiscal year, starting July h . In addition to the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines the pay hike al$.o applies to the Public Health Service, Coast and Geodetic Survey and the Coast Guard. Sen. Paul -H. Douglas (D-TH) still hoped to atlach a scries of amendments to reduce .or eliminate special hazard pay or other incentive or bonus allowances. He contended .they -would .save between 150 and 200 million dollars a year by greatly reducing special pay for Army, Navy and Air Force fliers, submariners, parachutists, bomb demolition experts. Douglas also wants to end the ·3100 a - m o n t h bonus for doctors, dentists and others in the uni- fprmnd PCT^CCP. Sponsors of the bill expcdori to beat down the Douglas amendments. ' · ' Missing Jet Bomber Hunted Not Heord From Since Toke-Off Richmoiid-OT-A light jet bomber with a crew of three which took off on a local training f l i g h t at 8:30 o'clock last night was reported missing today by Langley Air Force Base officials. Officials said the planp, a B-45 Tornado of the 84th Bombardment Squadron, ' 47th Bombardment Wing had not been heard from since the take-off and that a search had been started. Highway Inquiry Ended City Service Utilized By Nearby Areas .Garbage And Trash Collection Made Outside Limits Approximately 30 residences outside the city limits of Fayette- villc are receiving city garbage and trash collection service. The property, owners, who requested the service, pay on the same basis i city "residents: . Two areas.arc.involved ir. the service. Co.e lies, west of North Garland .and the other cast of the Old'Wire Road. In both esses the area served is a thickly-populated residential section just .butf'de the corporate limits: Single residences .outside the city-r-even though they are only i few 'feet over the. line---do not ;ecure sanitation . serviced . However, where all home owners in a block, or in two or more blocks, agree " to pay the sanitation charges, service can be extended. General!.' speaking, areas which can expect to receive garbage and trash service--in return f. : the regular fee--are those just n u t sine the city limits. In' several cases homes on .one side of a street lie inside the city while those across the street are outside. "There isn't much use collecting garbage and keeping the neighborhood clean on on*-side-of a street while the people on the other side have no way to dispose of waste," Harold Zick, city auditor, explained. --· · -Report Is Filed In Dairy Case The Arkansas State Board Health filed a': report v yei addre»S jlfeiGSifc»!*U.r " F.-BUtt or. the facilities and prodr Jets of'Glenn's Dairy here,'as instructed by Judge Butt last nonth.
