Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - June 5, 1962, Abilene, Texas "WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE S90 S96T 01 svxai svnvo r 3AV 3103 TrZffi 9909 X9 03 S31V6 33IAM3S W1IJOM3IW LY AS IT 81ST YEAJl, NO. 353 ABILENE, TEXAS, TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 5, PAGES IN TWO SECTIONS frm PAGE ONE In this era of consolidation, of higher costs, of greater de- mands on public education, there are left in Texas tome 450 schools officially .designated as "small" because they have SCO or less students each. These 650 schools serve some students. How can these small schools offer opportunities comparable to those found m city schools? The "Texas Small Schools a five-year experi- ment, is seeking to find the an- swers, seeking ways to make the small school more competi- tive and thus insure its life The project is a bootstrap op- eration It requires more time and energy than money. It's an effort to do more with assets at hand. The experiment started in 1960-61 with 18 pilot schools, in- cluding from this area, Rule and Putnam. Last year the list was ex- panded to 49 schools and a five- year experimental program was launched. Working now in the project are Rule, Putnam, Weinert, Girard, Fluvanna and Moran. The project is co-sponsored by the Texas Small School Asso- ciation and the Texas Educa- tion Agency. Supt. Douglas Myers of Wein- ert explained the problem from his school's viewpoint. Weinert has around 160 stu- dents and 10 faculty members, grades 1 through 12. How can a variety of subjects be offered properly to Weinert high schoolers? How can the teacher find time to teach a course only four. or; five students want? The Small Schools Project is expenSienting with several an- ewers: 1. Multiple classes. 2. Supervised courses. 3. Cooperative services. 4. The use of school aides from the community. 5. Flexible schedules. 6. Audio-visual and other teaching materials. Weinert, for example, uses the multiple class idea. One teacher in one room taught two courses at the same time. (They did that when you were in school? Perhaps without the careful planning that now COGS into it.) Weinert combined beginning algebra with general math, typ- ing with shorthand. Two teach- ers were thus teaching four classes at once, doubling the of- fering in the two fields. The correspondence idea is also being tested. Weinert, for example, uses correspondence courses which students take from colleges of- fering such for high schoolers. Weinert uses these as "catch courses. Other schools use them for "enrichment." Audio-visual aids, films and the like are being used to stretch teacher time and improve teach- ing. The small school experiment Is too new to be fully judged. teachers, will have to be more complete- ly tested. But interest in the experiment is mounting. Some 200 more small schools are knocking at the door of the project wanting to get it. Chances are they'll have to wait until the current experiments are completed.

The text read: "Based upon the latest election returns from the Texas Election Bureau in the Democratic runoff, I concede the Democratic nomina- tion to Mr. Connally. "Tlie decision was a narrow one and my supporters waged an un- believeably courageous fight.

City Con Annex North Pork Areo Maurice Brooks, an attorney ad- vising North Park citizens in their opposition to annexation by Abi- ene, told about 100 residents Mon- day night there apparently is no way to stop annexation if Abilene Wants the area. Brooks, who refused an attempt to "pass the hat" for his serv- ices, said that discussion with city officials indicates actual an- nexation of the area may be some time in coming. "So far as I can he said, "the city has no immediate plans to take the area into the city." But he told the group meeting in the Abilene Auto Auction build- ing that in his judgment "neither me nor any other lawyer can stop the city from annexing this area if it is a part of the orderly growth of Abilene." He advised the people to "keep quiet" for the time being and wait to see what Abilene officials do about the pending annexation or- dinance now awaiting final action.

The move appeared to be a last-ditch effort to wring concessions from he Moslem future leaders of Al- geria. A pirate broadcast said the Ss- ret Army still intends to press for contacts with the nationalists in he hope of seeking compromise. A five-day truce called by the European extremists was set to end at midnight. The Secret rmy had offered to halt its cam- paign of shootings and bombings f Moslem leaders would .guar- antee the safety of Europeans aft- er the July vote on Algerian in- dependence. The nationalist lead- ership rejected the proposal Sun- day. The latest Secret Army broad- cast came amid reports of a seri- ous split between the organiza- .ion's civilian and military lead- irs. The truce did not shut oil all ,-iolence. Bands of Moslems ma- chine-gunned French troops and civilians on the outskirts of Al; g'iew'- 'during the day. -Three 'rench soldiers and two civilians were .wounded. Some French of- believe the attacks were :he work of local Moslem com' mandos who wanted to show their disapproval of any contacts with he Secret Army. The pirate broadcast said fail- ire of the Secret Army and Al- jerian nationalists to reach an agreement was due to "maneuv- irs" of the French authorities. The Secret Army apparently re- turned to a belief that terror is ts only bargaining point as the election on independence drew near. In an independent Algeria the Europeans would lose virtual- y all of their political power in .he overwhelmingly Moslem state. The army hopes for stronger guarantees that the new regime will prevent slaughter of Euro- peans once the French army leaves. Thousands of Europeans already have fled Algeria in fear of possible future Moslem repris- als. In France the Secret Army's ormer second in command, ex- Gen. Edmond Jouhaud, lost hit ippeal to the Supreme Court to :et aside his death sentence for reason. The high court's action >ut the case in the hands of Gen. Charles de Gaulle for the final lecision.
