MOTIVATION: High school students and adults concerned with pollution of our lakes, streams and other waters will be stimulated to learn by dis covering the answer* to several leading questions and by their own desire to comprehend the problems of conserving our na tural resources. QUESTIONS include: What are algae? How would fish per ish without them? What would happen to algae if all. phos phates were eliminated from the waters? And why are they so important to the cause of conservation? DISCUSSION. Algae are to the fresh-water streams and lakes what grass is to the land. They capture the energy of the sun's rays and convert it into muscle-building vegetable mat ter for fish and other aquatic animals just as grass captures the sun's energy for sheep, cows and other grazing ani mals. Without them, fish would LINES ON DESIGNS OF THE TIMES The one-length wardrobe is a thing of the past, maintain the editor* of the leading needle work and cruris magazine.

When water is badly pol luted, a symptom is the thick, green scum that forms on the surface. These are algae. They need 15 to 20 essential nutri ents to live, and one of these is phosphorus, commonly found in detergents. If we deliberately put large amounts of phosphates into a lake, would algae then bloom and form a thick scum on the surface? This does not happen, leading us to learn that the scientific case against phos phates as contributors to pollu tion is far from proven. The principal component of algae is carbon. Each 100 pounds of algae contain 50 to 77 pounds of carbon and only one-half a pdund or less of phosphorus. These huge amounts of carbon are supplied by carbon-containing organic wastes which are being dumped into our lakes in ever-increasing quantities. Carbonaceous material forms carbon dioxide gas through the a special project for Dad: mak ing a sparkling rooster with nails.

Turner commands a stunning view from his desk on the 11th floor of a glassy new sky scraper on Wall Street. On a clear day he can see forever. The big window at Bob's elbow offers a scenic panorama that includes more skyscrapers a-building and the skyline of downtown Brooklyn just across the East River's ship busy Buttermilk Channel. "How can you get anything done around here with a view like that?" a visitor asks. "Well, I admit I peep oc casionally," is the bemused reply of the 20-year-old Turner, "but it merely reminds me that if 1 don't get to work in here I may end up out there." Turner, an articulate, solf spoken black high school grad uate from North Carolina and a refugee from a dead-end job in the mailroom of a Man hattan bank, is not likely to "end up out there." He's a summer trainee with Johnson and Higgins - the country's oldest and one of the world's biggest insurance brokerage firms, headquartered at 95 Wall Street. As such, Turner has taken the first step on the parallel roads on-the-job training and college study which, in five years, will provide him with a degree and a firm footing on the management action of bacteria and dissolved oxygen. In turn the carbon dioxide gas is used in the nor mal growth of algae. It is con verted into organic carbon, which then becomes part of the algae themselves. Many scientists have reached the conclusion that it is only the formation of bacteria produced carbon dioxide which can account for the algal blooms which occurred in Lake Erie more than 40 years ago and which can account as well for the continuing appearance of those blooms today. SUMMARY AND CONCLU SION. It appears that this problem can only truly be brought under control by greatly decreasing the input of organic wastes and other algal nutrients through the installa tion and proper operation of advanced sewage treatment systems. This should be a na tional goal since it will also eliminate the many true pollu tants—human wastes, toxic ma terials and others—now pouring into our lakes. create the treasures of a by gone era.

This month. Bob will begin classes as a freshman at the College. After four months in school, he'll return for four more months of work at John son and Higgins. The alternat ing sequence will continue for five years. At that point, Turner will have his degree, either a 8.8.A. or a B. S., plus 2'A years of working experience at full salary. In the process, two-thirds of his tuition will be paid by his employer-sponsor. In addi tion, he will have earned up to at least $12,000. Moreover, if he stays with his sponsor for two years after graduation, his own tuition payments will be returned to him. The insurance industry is diligently searching for more people like Bob Turner. More than 50 insurance organiza tions - companies, agencies, brokerage firms and national and state and local associations - are eager to sponsor as many wualified high school graduates as the College can recruit. Currently, there are 250 students from 14 states in the college's work-study program. And there is room for many more.
