By Ralph Nading Hill Burlington a we Are a nation of eyes staring out of the darkness at a the so Long As the set is on so Long As we Are conscious we Are part of that vast apparatus called a rat Ings which determine what the broadcasters think that the sponsors think that the people want to see. It is Clear that commercial to is Here to stay that regardless of the names acc chairmen Call it such As a a vast wasteland a electronic apply Chlap it will retain the patterns it had developed. Educational television is not a substitute for commercial to has acknowledged that Educa ment to it on the part of the millions in every walk of life whose tastes interest curiosity somehow escape tabulation in what the ratings find it useful to Call the a average Frank Stanton president of the Columbia broadcasting system has acknowledged that educational television a May in time prove a Boon to network pro Grams in new Talent new ideas new forms which Only experimentation free of commercial pressures can educational televisions most important Mission is to create in children an preserve in adults what has been called a a habit of mind to maintain the lasting excitement that a curious mind provides. It is True that some Etc programs in the past particularly during the formative years were anything but simulating or exciting. With the development of the Eastern educational network in recent years however the resources of All the states have become available for programming not to mention film Banks All Over the world. Thus the capital operating expense for an Etc system in any Given state is but a Small Beni Catamount latin comes alive by Carol Watkin latin is a dead language a you say Well just sit in on a certain latin in class at Beni you la see it Rise from its gravel this year a Small group of juniors Are travelling a unique course in latin in taught by miss Grace e. Grofton latin English teacher at Beni. Through courses in latin i ii these students have gained adequate proficiency to enable them to read a variety of literature in classical latin As Wen As in the vernacular in medieval latin. All of the students Susan Bitensky Sharon Rackliffe Peggy Kaul Diane Beecher John Riddle agree d that one of their main objectives was to improve their Power to read latin. The students were especially enthusiastic about a primitive roman comedy by plautus a the menace Chmir which written about 200 b.c., describes roman life at that time. A Gesta Romano rum or a Good deeds of the romans is another example of what the latin Iii class has been Reading. The class has Learned some French history by Reading the Story of a Joan of arc a Small part of a Long history of the Hundred years War written by Aeneas Silvius Pope Pius ii. Much writing by the romans was done in letter form which is often More similar to an essay. A Good example of this is a a letter to a Monk written by Petrarch in the 14th Century about a personal experience in Mountain climbing in the French Alps. For More unusual exciting Reading the class chose a Story of the supernatural by Pliny the younger. In this account a greek philosopher a Theodorus is bothered by a walking ghost in a haunted House. Pliny a account of his uncles death in the eruption of it. Vesuvius in 79 . Which buried Pompeii Herculaneum has also been of much interest to the students. In the coming third term the class Hopes to read orations essays letters written by Cicero. In the Spring term the students wish to concentrate on latin poetry primarily Virgil a aeneid Book ii. Because this latin Iii class is very Small miss Crofton is Able to work individually with each student. The students feel they have had an Opportunity to improve in translation making it More accurate effective. The students have also delved deeply into the different aspects of the Renaissance period the Greco roman culture Western european civilization which gives them background for their extensive Reading. They have also taken advantage of educational television programs filmstrips dealing with greek roman culture the Renaissance. When the latin students were asked if they feel latin is valuable to them they All answered an emphatic a a yes it was the consensus that although it is hard work it is Well Worth it. To quote one student a this course really makes us appreciate the through this course the students Are gaining a Good background in classical literature Art. They feel a knowledge in latin has contributed to their knowledge of English because latin is an invaluable asset in enlarging a vocabulary in understanding classical allusions especially in English literature. The students expressed a definite desire to go on with latin next year. However a latin in course has never been offered at Beni. Hopefully there will be enough latin students from North Bennington High school to constitute a Large enough class so that such courses As latin i in will be offered in the future. Part of the wealth of programming that becomes available to it through its association with other stations even other countries As in the proposed connection Between Vermont the Canadian broadcasting corp. The investment in Vermont set system will be one half of that necessary to construct the new Burlington High school about $4 million. Annual operating costs for the entire network which each week will produce from 20 to 25 hours of in school programs roughly the same number for adult viewing at Home will be equivalent to those of running the schools of St. Albans for one year. No one knows better than the teachers that we Are in an Era when knowledge is compounding so fast that even with the most advanced communications educational facilities we Are hard put to keep abreast of the times. A whether you wish to know More about techniques in arc welding from a skilled expert a Robert Chastney principal of the Montpelier High school has written a for whether you would learn More about economics from a recognized authority in the Field or whether you would develop a deeper appreciation for Art literature or history from those Best qualified to explain their significance educational television is the one sure Means of making these opportunities available for All vermonters.
