Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - November 27, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OP WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES W E SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT 82ND YEAR, NO. 164 ABILENE, TEXAS, TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 27, '0 SECTIONS Auociattd Prett (ff> PAGE; ONE (Set picture, Pg, 11-A) Mrs. Roberta Warren Ross is a longtime Baird resident, an elementary teacher with re- markable talent for teaching. Mrs. Atrelle Dill is a long- time Baird resident, a housewife with a remarkable talent for art. The two have now combined their talent in a commercial venture to produce new tools to aid in the teaching of large les- sons to small fry. Mrs. Ross has long believed in the use of "visual" aids in teaching. Dramatize the lesson, make it more attractive, trans- late it into the thinking of the youngster and it will be easier and better learned, she has found. Her school room, they say at Baird, has always been the envy of other teachers for the pic- tures, posters, stories and ideas she dreamed up to catch youth- ful attention. Mrs. Dill, an "amateur" art- ist, has through the years helped Mrs. Ross and other teachers in Baird and area towns with illustrations to be used in teaching. She has do- nated her time and talent to this endeavor. Mrs. Dill draws and sketches with a light touch, creating gay, colorful, delightful little figures who seem about to pop with joy over coming into being. The Ross Dill efforts have been going on for some time and then, a few months ago, another Baird figure entered the pic- ture. Elsworth Mayer bought the Baird Star and moved to Baird to operate the newspaper. Mayer saw the work being done, on a single-copy, limited basis. He saw the stream of teachers coming to beg and to borrow ideas and translation of ideas of the two Baird women. He suggested the Baird Publish- ing Co. print it. Three full sets of Ross-Dill teaching aids have now been published in full color lithog- raphy. Each is a group of col- ored "posters" suitable for mounting about the room. One series on a history-pa- triotism study of America in which a gay young fellow named "Johnny America" learns the lessons about this country all children should learn. (Original drawing of Johnny is now in the Freedom Foundation at Valley Forge.) Another series is on Texas, its history and patriotism and is told with a young character named "Tex." The third series is aimed at beginning spellers and is the story of Grandma Vowel and1 her five grandchil- dren whose names are, as you might suspect, little A, E, I, 0 and long and short of them. Two more series are on the drawing board, "English Is for the Birds" and "Don't Let Sci- ence Bug You." Illustrations are, naturally, birds and bugs. Mrs. Dill and Mrs. Ross have made one venture outside the teaching field. El Paso Natural Gas has bought a "color book" from them for distribution to young customers. The book con- cerns the company symbol, the road runner. So far the Baird combination hasn't "made any money" but it is having a fine time, thank you. Any profits which might would be so much gravy. Mrs. Ross and Mrs. Dill have for years been doing the same thing for free making les- sons so pleasant kids hardly know they are lessons. Soviet Ships Leave Cuba Full of Men By WALTER MEARS ABOARD THE U.S.S. NOR- FOLK OFF CUBA So- viet Union is continuing to pull mater- als out of Cuba, the crew of this U.S. destroyer reported Monday. The Norfolk is among a num- ber of U.S. warships maintaining watchful eye on Soviet bloc shipping to and from Cuba de- spite the lifting of the U.S. arms blockade. ".We pick up some type of So- viet merchantman about every other said Capt. John R. ieardall Jr., commander of the Norfolk, the world's largest de- stroyer. The Norfolk spotted two Commu- nist vessels Sunday, both bound 'rom Cuban ports to the Baltic. And one the Russian freighter 'ugachev carried a load of tanker trucks and her decks were jammed with men. "Her decks were just lined with people, most of them young said Lt. Ralph Slawson of Norfolk, "They were obviously carry- ing a lot more than the normal crew." He said the men were not in uniform. Most, he said, wore bath- ing suits. "We can only guess whether hey were military Beardall said. However, the Norfolk's observa- :ions coincided with reports that the Soviet Union negotiators had :old U.S. negotiators the Soviet Union would withdraw thousands of men from Cuba, once described as technicians but later identified as troops. Over the weekend, U.S. Ambas- sador Adlai E. Stevenson referred to Cuba as "where the Russian troops will be removed." Ens. Joe Bellino, an All-Ameri ca halfback while at the Naval Academy, was officer the deck when the Norfolk spotted another Communist ship earlier Sunday. This was the Yugoslav freighter Ploce, officials said. "Generally Beardall said, "if you close with one of these fdtows, he'll tell you what you want to know. But not the Ploce." "She would not tell us any Bellino said. "There's not much we have been doing with Ihese merchant ships except look- tag them over as they go by." Signalman 2.C.

The President left by plane for Washington at p.m. During his tour, he voiced a per- onal thank you to the men who jreated a bastion oa the southeast Kennedy also cautioned the ombat-ready troops that days of anger have not vanished. He said the nation will continue o live in crisis and danger, "cer- tainly through this decade." From a visit with armored roops at Ft. Stewart, Ga., Ken- ledy hopped to Homestead Air ?orce Base and to the Key West :risis hot 90 miles [cross the Florida strait from Cuba for a look at Air Force, Vavy and Marine planes and the flots who fly them. The President cited crews of ugh and low flying reconnais- sance planes, at Homestead and the Boca Chica Naval Air Station at Key West, and the men who lung an aerial shield over the flights. They had obtained the intelli- gence information of a Soviet mis- sile buildup in Cuba. In so doing, Kennedy said, they had "contributed as much to the security of the United States as any unit in our history, as any group of men in our history." At this last stop of his one day, tour of key military in- stallations, Kennedy presented a Navy unit commendation to Light 'holographic Squadron 62 of the Jacksonville Naval Air Station for :ts surveillance work over Cuba. Kennedy, wearing a gray suit and a blue tie and carrying a dark felt hat, stayed 68 minutes at Boca Chica far beyond his original schedule. He inspected a Navy intercept unit capable of detecting any air- craft movements in the vicinity of Cuba. Newsmen were barred. To pilots and crews of recon- CISCO naissance planes and Marines jus ashore from ships of the lift ed blockade, Kennedy declared 'The 180 million people of the United States, with their will and determination, and with you gen lemen as the point of the spear lave carried a load unprecedente meet the threat of nuclear at ack from the Communist-rulet sland.
