Averys program will be ready for introduction beginning tuesday. The appropriation Bills will be handled by the ways and Means committee of each House. Avery called for a $570 million budget for next fiscal year traveler sponsors hews film visual education program on current events in schools students today must Deal with a bewildering number of facts. These can Range from the Orbital Speed of a space capsule to the Date when the War with Japan ended. As new knowledge is discovered the sheer number of facts threatens to become overwhelming. One answer to this problem adopted by Many educators is to concentrate More on teaching Broad unifying ideas. Facts Are used to illustrate these significant concepts rather than being taught As ends in themselves. The concept approach can also be used in teaching current events area teachers Are finding. These teachers Are using Yec news services sponsored by the traveler. One important part of these instructional materials is a weekly news filmstrip. Exciting news photographs from All Over the world Are projected on a screen to focus class attention and stimulate student discussion of significant current events. Each filmstrip is accompanied by narration guides written in various vocabulary Levels. These guides provide the teacher with the background facts ideas and questions needed to Lead class discussion. The news filmstrip program does not offer students isolated news events. Instead it concentrates on those significant events which Are most Likely to be of historical importance. It uses these events to illuminate Broad general concepts. For example news about the North Atlantic treaty organization is used to illustrate the reasons for alliances Between nations a labor strike provides the Opportunity to show the relationship Between manage m e n to worker and government. In addition to the weekly news filmstrip the vec program includes monthly study in depth filmstrips on specific subjects. In these students obtain detailed background information which makes their daily newspaper Reading More meaningful. Subjects this school year for instance include. A the Congress of the United Quot flight to the a riches from the sea a a introduction to the news quiz to be published in the traveler is the third unit of the instructional materials. Students and their parents refresh their knowledge of important current events by taking the quiz. The Complete program is published by visual education consultants inc. Of Madison Wise. It is used in schools throughout the nation. The traveler sponsors the program As part of its educational services for area schools. Based on present taxes. It would mean dipping into Reserve funds up to about $10 million. A Resolution authorizing Sale of surplus lands at state institutions should be ready for introduction tuesday Avery said. It is designed to permit Sale of land once used for farming at the institutions but not now needed for that purpose. Avery said two proposals indicated the unneeded land is now being leased for about 3 per cent of value which he said is not enough to justify continued state ownership. Although he did not have an estimate on the acreage involved Avery said it appeared the sales might bring More than $1 million to the state. Avery cited in particular farm lands held by the Larned state Hospital Winfield Hospital and training Center and the veterans Home at Dodge City. Much of the land at those places is not needed any longer for its original purpose farming he said. A Bill to abolish the present state port of entry system can probably be accomplished in an appropriation Bill not requiring a special measure the governor said.
