Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - September 3, 1962, Abilene, Texas T "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES W E SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT B2ND YEAR, NO. 78 ABILENE. TEXAS, MONDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER PAGES IN ONE SECTION Auodatml Pmt (ff) PAGE ONE Katharyn Putt] BAUINGER Baliin- jer High School teachers were having their first faculty meet- ing Friday and Principal Joe Forester mentioned that some teachers were teaching in the system in which they themselves were schooled. Some teachers once taught come of the other teachers, he noted. Miss Marryatt Smith looked about the faculty. She could go one better. She not only taught come of the teachers. She taught the parents of some of the teachers. "Grider Hays, new vocational agriculture t e a c h e she thought "he's a 'grand- child' I taught his mother and father.. .some other teach- ers' parents, too..." There is a peculiar stability about Ballinger High and it is Miss Smith. A native of Ballinger. she at- tended school here. After col- lege education she returned to become a teacher. She has not missed a term since. This will be her 52nd con- secutive year as a Ballinger High teacher. Students, it seems, divided teachers into two distinct classes, "snap" and "rough." Miss Smith doesn't consider herself either. "I'm not paid to be so- tailed she says. On the other hand, she is not over- ly demanding. "I love the students ..T want them to that is her teaching philosophy. "We don't have a better Principal Forester re- ports. Miss Smith's students have excellent records in advanced work in the subjects she teach- es: math, Latin and, formerly, German. That fact is well known. "We have to fight students off her Principal For- ester says, to keep the size of them under control. "Students want her as a teacher." "Never saw a place without children have so many children neighbors say about her home. She loves them and it works both ways. Miss Smith got her bachelor's from St. Mary's at Dallas and did graduate work at the Uni- versity of Chicago and Uni- versity of Colorado. She has col- lege credits for advanced de- grees but has never taken them for she has chosen graduate work which she wanted, which helps her in teaching. She knows Latin, German, Spanish, French, Greek and, she says, "a little to be a teacher of English when needed. Miss Smith's father, a Har- vard graduate and a lawyer, attended the Ballinger town lot sale in 1888 and moved his wife here shortly thereafter. So her roots are deep. And she has been involved at one time or another in most civic and cultural affairs and in First Presbyterian work. She is also an active book reviewer. Currently she teaches Latin, plane and solid geometry and trig, alternately with solid. She also sponsors the Student Council, Honor Society, Future Teachers (a club named for her) and Latin Club. "We offered to lighten her load a Principal Forester (aid. "But she didn't want it light- ened. She enjoys it all too much." Teaching standards have been raised with teacher the years lince she started, Miss Smith notes. Teaching techniques have also changed. "That's good keeps you from getting she says. And now she starts Year No. 12 and with as much enthu- siasm as in any of the ether SI.

At least 75 towns and vil lages were reported leveled in a broad triangle west of Tehran. Officials hesitated to confirm or deny the unofficial reports of thousands dead and injured.

"We want everyone to know that the Ku Klux Klan has re- activiated in a klans- man said, "And we are publicly demonstrating our resentment to integration by cross-burning. "Our forefathers fought and died for their principles and be- iefs and we stand ready to do the same, if necessary, to preserve our way of life."

Technically, much of the ma- terial and many of the men flow- ing into Cuba have come from Soviet bloc countries, such as Czechoslovakia, and it is possible the announcement indicates some step up in shipments directly from the Soviet Union. But another possibility is that the Moscow communique was put out merely so Cuba's economics minister, Ernesto Guevara, would have something to show for his just-concluded visit to the Soviet capital. A State Department spokes man said that the Moscow state- ment is an attempt to make what the Soviet Union has been doing sound legitimate.
