' The Union Gallery is now exhibiting
art work from kindergartens and grade
schools in this area. See it. Some of the
work is technically exceptional; some
swirl in waves of color and freedom of
the Imagination. Although the young
artists' intentions are in no way serious,
some statements are made effectively to
Perhaps the most poignant work is
that of the children at The Intensive
Training Unit at Murdoch School. Some
works image a twisted and intense swirl
of letters and figures emerging from an
ambiguous dark. This could be the Dark
of Everyman, the gulf, the void, the damp
womb that encompasses all passion. Or it
could be the dark of one child's life that
he, through symbol and order, is
attempting legitimate escape into a
One might remember a distinctive
ritual performed by an isolated tribe in
Malaysia at every morning gathering.
During the gathering, each family
member relates his dreams to the father,
and through him their "meaning" is
gained. The children are initiated into the
mythology of their life with an
understanding an; intimacy of experience
which participates throughout their life.
This culture has the lowest crime rate and
the best mental health of the world.
Through the exhibit one may learn
about each child's "politics of
experience" in the style and form of
interpreting his subject matter. Some
works abstract color and can be enjoyed
for the feelings of the color, a cold wind
massaging your back while the trees
shower crystals of ice or the symbolic
realization that ultimately there is
nothing to fear.
The elementary grades' art favors
representation and portrayal, cavemen
and linemen, clowns and seashores plus
one tiger with spiralling illustrations of

"The child is father to the man,"
Wordsworth wrote preceding Freud.
Where will the children represented in
this exhibit go, what will their experience
of life be? Will their lives parallel those of
the tribe in Malaysia? Or will their growth
split into the fragmented experience of
being an American.
This elemental exhibit, the casual and
playful creation of children living, can
Point to infinite social and personal

Blake and Wordsworth's propensities.
Mental health, pre-school care, and the
education of the American social intellect

the image of the American cosmos?
Platonism seems hopelessly part of our
heritage. The ideal table exists somewhere
in heaven while our tables are imperfect,
shadowy copies. The soul has barely
strayed from the pineal gland, But body
is concrete and soul is spirit and never

heritage of America. Dreams, fantasies,
hopes, and desires can't be bought and
sold, bartered for hides and rifles. Tllere

of his existence.

Today, reading with your hands is quite ac

because people who read with their hands are
graduates of the Evelyn Wood Reading, Synam
ics Course. The hand, however hasn' always
been the symbol of rapid readings The old meth
od of teaching students to increase their reading
speed was to equip them with a reading machine.
The machine, while seemingly a good idea,
didn't live up to expectations. It couldn't slow
down when the reader ran into a confusing pas
sage. And it was too awkward to use in easy
chairs or beds.
In 1945 Evelyn Wood discovered the hand as'
a device for reading faster.
Her reason for using the hand as a tool was
to "give my students the ability to read groups
of words at a time and to. increase their concen
tration so they won't have to go back and re-read
so often." ,
Her principle worked.
Since 1959, more than half a million people
have taken the Evelyn Wood Course and have
increased thejr reading speed by an average of
r Using the hand to read faster is a very interest
If you would like to try your hand at it, why
don't you come to a Mini-Lesson? In one hour's
time, we'll have you reading down the page
faster than you can imagine,
In addition, you'll take home with you a deft
nitely faster reading speed . . . one that can be
used on newspapers, magazines, correspondence,
textbooks, and technical journals. Also, we'll
tell you about some of the other things that have
made this the most popular extra-curricular
course in the world
It's a wild hour . And it's free.
