SCHOOLROOM WITH A "VUE"* « i ® EPBKJ |„ x R 1 is. ■H»'M9HHHI I—MM Though curiosity may not bo to a cat's best advantage schools can make no bettor investment than in promoting this wonderous commodity in the minds of young students. Educators have long since discovered that a child whose curiosity has been effectively stimulated in a learning en vironment absorbs information eagerly, and retains it longer than if taught by rote methods. In simple terms, it's the differ ence between your child's understanding of a subject and his having to dully-rofttimes meaninglessh—memorize it. As a result of this discovery, many new and revolutionary teaching systems have been in troduced in the last few years to maximize student involve ment and participation in the learning process. Some of these systems have met with varying degrees of success—others have no|.

Altitude-trained stewardesses at Lufthansa German Airlines have been sporting a complete ly redesigned miniwardrobe since April in celebration of the airline's first Boeing 747 jet flights.

Oil any given day, a Lufthan sa stewardess can choose to wear either her deep blue or her bright yellow basic and jacket ensemble (or any combi nation) together with a color ful assortment of accessories. These include perky caps with small brims, blue slippershoes, MEDICAL EDUCATION THROUGH THE AGES What an age of health and promise we live in! Medical advances over the past two decades have been kaleidescopic in frequency, fantastic in scope, and dizzying in their accomplishments. We have seen polio controlled, measles and rubella stifled, and organ transplants become al most commonplace events. The result? Our children stand to live almost 23 years longer than their turn of the century ancestors—and our grandchild ren will live even longer, healthier lives! The struggle for today's space-age medical knowledge, however, spans the millenia; the evolution having been slow, arduous, and hampered by su perstition and misconception. Among primitive tribes, the medicine man still enjoys a special status and, as in the past, his training is usually giv en by apprenticeship to un changing, unreasoning authority. Medical education, as we know it, began with the early Greeks, whose spirit of rational inquiry introduced the practice of observation and reasoning regarding disease. They consi dered disease a lack of har mony or wholeness, sometimes correctable, and not necessarily the result of vengeful gods or devils. Their interpretations and discussions based on obser vation lent themselves to teach ing—and thus, the Greeks founded medical schools where educators like Hippocrates shared wisdom with a new breed of future healers. Later, the Christian religion made a great contribution to medical education. It not only favored the protection and care of the sick, but also the esta blishment of institutions where the ill were observed, analyzed and discussed by physicians— which allowed for comparisons and resulted in advancements in treatments. Great universities and medi cal schools soon rose in Italy, Cracow, Prague, Paris, Oxford and elsewhere in Western Eu rope, but the prestige of pro- turer in its field, the Visual Unified Environment system for schools not only promotes student involvement, but also puts all teaching materials con veniently at the teacher's fingertips. Designed by educators for use in traditional or open con cept schools, VUE is made up of storage and display units which are wall-mounted to keep basic materials and sup plies in full view of students at all times to increase learning effectiveness by continually re affirming and reenforcing what has already been taught. Stu dents, on their own initiative, can go back to subject teaching media whenever they feci the Uti'd to do so. VUE also pro vides lightweight re-usable learning panels that can be easily arranged or removed by the instructor. The panels con tain basic course material to increase the acquisition of knowledge. * Color-coordinated compo nents of the system include closed and open storage cabi nets, mobile walls, chalk boards, tack boards, peg boards, panels, racks, trays, blue-and-yellow gloves and ad justable-strap shoulder bag, which can also be held in the hand. Stewardesses wearing the yel low basic costume can also add a yellow cape lined in blue. In colder climates, a blue coat completes the uniform. The inter-changeability of the two basic outfits and accessories gives the girls surprising free dom to express mqod or per sonal taste. Flying 747's between Chica go, New York and Germany, these pert stewardesses are con tinually putting their best foot forward and making air travel a mini-splendored thing. Mm fessorship that drew doctors from their hospitals also led to centuries of increased thcoriza tion—and a lessening of real istic familiarity with actual sickness. This emphasis upon theory, doctrine and systems lasted well into the 18th cen tury, when hospital experience in the training of students was reasserted. About that time, medical education began to assume its modern character. The return to the bedside aided hospitals in their long evolution from dwelling places for the poor, diseased and infirm—maintain ed by charity—to today's well equipped citadels of health, used by every part of the com munity. Medical genius and discovery also began to flourish during this period of scientific enlight enment. Louis Pasteur showed the relationship of micro organisms to certain diseases— and Joseph Lister applied these concepts to surgery. In the U.S., the Johns Hopkins Medi cal School began admitting only college graduates with at least a years' training in the natural sciences. Its clinical work was also superior for that era, because the school was supplemented by the Johns Hopkins Hospital, created ex pressly for teaching and for research by the members of the medical faculty. A drastic reorganization of the medical education system in the United States followed counters, and shelves. A unique part of the furni ture line is a system of parallel support rails attached to class room walls to which each of the storage or display units can be attached or removed in seconds. Contributing to the system's flexibility are closed storage cabinets which stack or fit into caster bases in addition to attaching to the wall mounted support rails. Free standing mobile room divider units are also available. All units are removable, ad justable and re-groupable, mak ing classroom arrangement ex tremely flexible for changing from one level of instruction to another. Designed to mulitply avail able floor space without sacri ficing storage space, the new furniture system, by placing learning resource equipment in full view, provides a stimulat ing environment for learning . aivrt * e) v ejneat. Will VUE succeed where other systems have failed? Al though the reports from schools all over the country are yet preliminary—the prospects and indications look more than promising.

The report called for better labora tory facilities, belter access to patients in hospitals and larger and better-trained teaching staffs. The response to this plea was startling. Public and private grants, endowments, founda tions and donations resulted in new and modern buildings, la boratories, clinical facilities, teaching staffs and methods of instruction. A firm base had been established for the space age medical technology and wonder treatments that we are witness to—and marvel at — today. Hippocrates would un doubtedly be awe-struck by the medical education tech niques that have evolved from the roots he and his Greek contemporaries set down. What might he say, for instance, af ter viewing one of the over 600 surgical films produced by Davis & Geek, a part of the Lederle Laboratories Division of American Cyanamid? These films, which make up a surgical film library for the medical profession document the de tails of surgical procedure that are required "reading" for to day's practitioner. Hippocrates might very well comment that "these pictures are not only worth ten thou sand words—but a million lives as well!" 1,345 Freshmen; From Far and Wide Converge On Duke University Campus for Collegiate Life . Duke University's new freshman class, 1,345 stong and representing 43 states, will arrive Tuesday for a fast-paced week of activities designed to help them get the right start on their collegiate career. Classes for Duke's entire student body, estimated at 8,000, begin Sept. 21. All will share an experience of newness - a new year of learning, new friends, new faces here and there. But for Propose Vast Project For Long Island Site PATCHOQUE, N. Y. - Pro posals for the construction of some 3,300 new dwelling units on two different sites in Suf folk County were detailed by William Morris, NAACP direc tor of housing programs, at an open meeting here, Sept. 3. Under this plan, to be spon sored by the NAACP upon approval of the Board of Direc tors, housing would be made available for all age, economic and racial groups. The meeting was attended by 75 persons representing 18 community groups interested in 1 ' providing - non-discrimina tory housing to meet a need which construction of a pro posed sl9 million U. S. Inter nal Revenue Service Center facility in this area would create. Adequate housing for low and middle-income fami lies is not presently available in this suburban country, Mr. Morris said. There is resistance Morris said. There is resistance to such housing, he pointed out. The group endorsed NAACP efforts to assure the develop ment of housing to meet this need and to oppose location of the facility in the county unless such housing is made available. An estimated 2,000 permanent workers will be em ployed by the Internal Reve nue Center. Further, the group agreed to direct action, such as sit-ins in the Town Board's office here and the regional office of the U. S. General Services Ad ministration in New York City, if need be. The GSA is charged with the responsibility of se lecting a site and developing the facility. CONSUMER., INSIDE STORY ON DETER6ENTS Household detergents consist mainly of two basic ingredi ents, surfactants and phos phates. Surfactants help the water to penetrate the clothing. Phos phates emulsify oily soil, keep dirt particles in suspension so they don't stick to the clothing when you rinse, and contribute materially to the reduction of germ levels on clothes. Other detergent ingredients include suds control agents, sil icates, brighteners, perfumes, bleaches and borax. Why do detergents differ in price? Because the cost of the ingredients differs. The most popular brands, in order to protect their popularity, tend to use the most expensive in gredients. Other brands use less costly things. , Instead of phosphates, for instance, you can make a deter gent with combinations of cit ric acid and soda ash or salt cake (sodium sulfate). These substitutes don't do nearly as good a job, but they may cost less, so manufacturers—eager to please all segments of the pub lic —make the lower priced de tergents for people who prefer them. To make extra sales of his substitute product, at least one manufacturer spread the charge (not really true) that phos phates cause pollution—and then printed on his package that the detergent with a low cost substitute for phosphates was "phosphate free"! No matter what kind of de tergent you buy, don't assume that the bigger the box, the less you pay per pound. It doesn't always work that way. Two smaller boxes may cost less than one big box with twice as much in it. So compare before you choose. the frosh, it will be a whole new way of life. "Freshman Week" will help them bridge the gap. Programs arranged for the freshmen include assemblies, examinations, advisory ses sions, interviews, town-and gown tours and cultural and social events. Their parents will receive a measure of orienta tion, too, including a reception at the home of Duke's new president, former North Caro lina Gov. Terry Sanford. The freshman class of ap proximately 1,345 compares with the 1969 total of 1,281. The increase is mainly in Trinity College, Duke's under graduate college, and in the Woman's College. The new freshman group is made up of 700 men in Trini ty College, 430 Woman's Col lege students, 140 in the School of Engineering and 75 in the School of Nursing. Many bring impressive cre dentials from high school. FASHIONS-W Two to get ready for a great western look—(left) the fringed suede vests to make for you and yours.

The top five other states, with numbers of fresh men supplied are: New York, 117; New Jersey, 108; Mary land, 106; Virginia and Flori da, 103 each. Duke's effort to atti4-:( stu dents from racial minorities into its undergraduate ranks has produced an increase in the number of black freshmen. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions, directed by Dr. Robert H. Ballantyne, reports that the freshman group will include 43 blacks, compared with 28 in last year's entering class. All told, about 130 blacks will be included in Duke's total 1970 undergrad uate enrollment of about 4,700.

If you're a female—and your instincts are nautical —here's what you should know to give your man a deck full of helping hands— singlehandedly. First, before departing on a boat trip, let someone respon sible know where you are go ing, when you expect to re turn, and advise him of any possible changes in your cruise plans. This way, if you run into any trouble, he'll be able to tell the Coast Guard where to look for you. But, be sure to let that person know when you've re turned safe and sound—to pre vent any false alarms. Taking the kids along? They should wear their lifesaving de vices at all times—after being checked out for proper fit and performance in the water on each individual child. And, never hesitate to have "all hands" wear their preservers whenever circumstances cause the slightest doubt of safety in your mind.

One recognized signal used on small boats is to slowly and repeatedly raise and lower the arms outstretched to each side. Will you be cooling off under the afternoon sun with a nice cold soft drink'' If so, take the advice of the folks at Pepsi- Cola—and save your empties for proper land disposal. Litter ing the marine highways is not only discourteous, it's danger ous—to you, your boat and the ecology. When passing through an chorages, travel at minimum speed to prevent creating a wake strong enough to capsize small craft and cause damage to other boats or property ashore. You are, incidentally, financially responsible for any such damage. Last—but certainly not least know that good house keeping is even more important afloat than ashore. Shipboard cleanliness will minimize the probability of fire and tragedy. 5B
