Eisenhower High School, Dist. 218 Evaluation Tests For Campus PupilsInstructors Share Bath With Soviets A group of American college and high school instructors in Russian language found themselves sharing bathroom facilities with Soviet Communist party members .during a two-month period of sthdy at Moscow University this summer. “But,” said Kenneth Ober of Illinois State Normal University, “it wasn’t so bad. It at least gave us plenty of opportunity to practice speaking the language.” Ober, one of a group of 25 U.S. instructors to take part in this first official exrhange of American and Russian teachers, said that regular Soviet students were moved out of their residence wing in Moslow University, and the “comrades” moved in before the arrival of the U.S. rontingent. “They told us this without hesitation,” Ober added. The exchange was sponsored by the International University Committee on Travel Grants. A similar group of Russians studied at Cornell University in New York. One of the most beneficial programs ever to come to the student body of the Dwight D. Eisenhower High School Campus Building will be presented all day on Monday, Sept. 30, at the graduating unit of the District 218 schools, 12700 Sacramento. Every one of the almost 2200 I students enrolled at this build-! ing will be involved in a number of events designed to help students gain information and self-insight, Dr. H. L. Richards, superintendent of schools stated. Directing this all out effort to aid the upperclassmen will be Dr. Warren Vorreyer, chairman of the Counseling and Guidance Department, and members of his staff. They will be assisted by state and private universities and colleges, junior colleges, plus representatives from the American College Testing program, the Illinois State Scholarship Commission, the College Entrance Examination Board and the Illinois State Employment Service Harvey office. More than 400 seniors aiming for college will have a chance to hear representatives of the American College Test ing Program, College Entrance Examination Board, College Scholarship Service, and of the I opportunities for entering and completing college: One or more films will be shown this group, on such subjects as “Finding Your Life’s Work,” “Planning Your Career,” and “Budgeting College Expenses.” The 400 additional seniors to be helped here will be given the General Aptitude Test Battery early in the day, follow cd by the Kuder Interest In ventory. The aid coming to the jun-| iors and the Campus sophomores of District 218 will be even more extensive, as approx imately 1400 students will be involved there. Dr. Vorreyer scheduled this mammoth day long program as a great time-saver to take care of the very worthwhile services given to the school by the various co-operating agencies. The entire day’s program will be set up by the school’s IBM data processing equipment, under the direction of Rollin Pooler, administrative assistant.Chairman Principals J. E.
