Clearfield Progress (Newspaper) - July 14, 1966, Clearfield, Pennsylvania The Progress Today's Chuckle Salesman's creed: No customer can be worse than no customer. TODAY  TOM0$$<$ytl:. BY GEORGE A. SCOTT, EDITOR OF THE PROGRESS Education in Focus Summer Schooling The Title I Programs There's no catchy name such as "Head Start" or "Upward Bound" attached to the largest summer school program now under way in the Clearfield Area, but it might well be called "Helping Hand," "Forward Push" or by some such title. For it is designed to help elementary, junior high and senior high pupils maintain or strengthen their chances of passing during the regular school term beginning in September. Nearly 2,000 Pupils Officially known as "Title I Programs" under the 1965 Federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), classes for pupils of grades 1 through 12 are being conducted in five Clearfield Area School Districts this year - Clearfield (including St. Francis School pupils), Curwensville, DuBois, Glendale and Moshannon Valley - plus one in the Purchase Line School District involving Clearfield County pupils who attend that Indiana County school. All told, nearly 2,000 pupils are involved in classes of six to eight weeks duration. All except the Clearfield Area School and Purchase Line District programs are limited to this summer; Clearfield's is part of a year-long Title I program that will continue through the 1966-67 school term while Purchase Line's project includes a learning materials center that will be operated throughout the school year and in future years. The Harmony and Philipsburg-Osceola Area School Districts also have Title I projects set up to start in September. The over-all cost of the six summer time programs will run in the neighborhood of $300,000 to $350,000. The longer-range Clearfield, Harmony, Philipsburg-Osceola and Purchase Line Title I programs will add approximately $350,000 to this total. The entire cost is being borne by the federal government from a one billion dollar allocation to finance Title I projects under ESEA. Johnny Learns To Read Reading improvement courses are being stressed in the five programs in the Area. Remedial help in arithmetic or higher mathematics also is being provided in some districts and in most districts the classroom instruction is being supplemented by cultural enrichment field trips and health and recreational activities. Purchase Line is emphasizing a cultural enrichment program of music, art and drama. All except the Clearfield district provide a noon lunch for their pupils. All provide transportation. As in the Head Start and Upward Bound programs previously discussed. Title I programs are for "educationally-deprived children from low income families." A low income family is defined as one with an annual income of $2,000. However, "educationally-deprived" also are defined as children who have the greatest need for special educational assistance so that their level of attainment may be raised to that appropriate for children of their age. Thus, there appears to be the leeway given to provide this special educational assistance to those children whose family income may not be low, but whose achievements in school have not been in line with their age level or those of their fellow pupils. In keeping with the terms of ESEA Title I, pupils in the Clearfield Area programs were enrolled one the basis of economic status, examination of their academic records and on recommendations of their teachers and principals. Generally a fairly even ratio of pupils per grade is maintained and classes are limited to a maximum-of 20 pupils to provide more individualized instruction. Administrators Enthusiastic School administrators with whom we have talked concerning Title I programs were generally enthusiastic about the programs, the opportunities presented and the results being attained. All report surprisingly good attendance by the youngsters, despite the fact that they are spending from three to six hours daily in school during what normally would be their vacation period. Few dropouts have been reported. Here is a capsule report of each district program: Clearfield Area District This six-week program began June 15 and ends July 27, with classes being held Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 11:30 a. m. Nearly 500 pupils of Clearfield Area and St. Francis schools are enrolled. The faculty includes 38 teachers, 21 teachers' aides (in the elementary grades only), a nurse and social worker and administrators including two who are guidance counselors. Elementary classes being held at the Glen Richey, Leonard Grade, Plymptonville and Woodland schools and are divided into three one-hour sessions, one for reading, one for mathematics and one for art and supervised recreation. For Academic Credit Differing from Title I programs in other districts, the junior and senior high classes cover a wide range of subjects - English; social studies including history, economics and geography; mathematics; general science and biology; and for some students typing and hygiene. Some students are taking courses as a refresher in anticipation of entering more advanced study in the regular '66-67 term, others are repeating or making up courses which they failed in the last school term. The class "day" is divided into two ]Vi hour periods and students are limited to two courses of study. Regular tests are given and academic credit will be given students successfully passing the courses. Some cultural enrichment field trips will be made before the end of the �ix weeks session. Curwensville School District Reading, appreciation of music and art, recreation and field trips feature the six week program which began in the Curwensville Schools June 27 with some 250 pupils in attendance. Classes are being held at Curwensville Elementary No. 2 building, Penn-Grampian school and at the junior-senior high school. Parents Are Visited Reading improvement is stressed in the morning class sessions from 9 to 12 noon. The afternoon session, ending at 3 p. m., is utilized for art, music appreciation, recreation including swimming, and field trips. A full-day trip is scheduled each Friday and all pupils will make at least one visit to Pittsburgh's Buhl Planetarium, Zoo or Carnegie Museum. Half day trips or visits are being taken to Curwensville industries, Glendale Dam, Sher-De-Lin Game Farm near DuBois and other area tourist attractions. A special feature of Curwensville's program is a close liaison between the 20 professional teachers and the students' parents. While teachers' aides take over supervision of the afternoon activities, the teachers visit homes of the pupils (by appointment) to discuss their progress with their parents and to learn what, if any, problems exist that might be corrected.

Cloudy Skies Otter Minor Relief From Hot Weather Cloudy skies offered minor relief today from the hot, muggy weather which has held the Clearfield County-Moshannon Valley area in its grip for the past several days.

Progress Report Is Released On Community Action MORRISDALE - A progress report on projects for Area 4 of Community Action in Clearfield County, Inc., has been released by the Rev. Michael E. Tutokie. chairman. Area 4 is comprised of Morris, Graham and Cooper Townships and Wallaceton Borough. Because of the phenomenal growth of the company (it now ranks as the second largest cheese processor in the nation) and subsequent expansion of its sales staff into a widespread force, a spokesman said this year's general meeting will probably be the last of its type. He indicated that hereafter the company probably will conduct divisional meetings in each of the firm's six sales divisions across the country. Harry (Hap) Bowser of New York City, director of sales and development for All-Star Dairy attained on two different occasions. July, usually an extremely dry month, already has surpassed by far the amount of precipitation that the district received in the previous month. During June, only .45 of an inch of rain fell in the Clearfield area. So far this month the total precipitation stands at 1.93 inches, which is .43 of an inch more than was received for the whole month of July 1965. Although Ihe rain by no means ended drought conditions which have plagued the area for the past five summers, it did give new life to the corn and oals crop, greened up many pastures and offered some farmers hope for a second cutting of hay. Additional showers which forecasters had been calling for for the past few days have failed to materialize, despite threatening skies. Fridey's forecast is for continued hot weather, with temperatures in the 85-95 degree range.

KNUTSON CHICAGO (AP) - Mobs of Negro youths, throwing fire bombs and bricks, stampeded through two Chicago neighborhoods Wednesday night. It was Ihe second successive night of violence on Chicago's Wesl Side. Here is the night's scorecard: Twenty Negro youths were arrested and charged with arson, resisting arrest or disorderly conduct. Dozens more were seized by police but later released. More than a dozen policemen were hit by bricks, rocks and bottles but none suffered serious injuries. At least two neighborhood residents were hit by stray bullets and hospitalized. Scores of other persons were treated for injuries or hospitalized with wounds ranging from cuts to possible skull fractures. Fire bombs started many blazes. Dozens of stores were looted. Broken glass from smashed shop windows littered sidewalks and streets. For the second day in a row, a gushing fire hydrant set off street fighting along Roosevelt Road near the Loop. Police turned off the hydrant, which hao. been turned on illegally - although it is a summer tradition in Chicago to cool off with gushing fire hydrants. Temperatures were in the 80s. Tuesday's disturbance had started the same way. The onlooking Negroes shouted "police brutality!" and claimed that police hit children with swinging nightsticks. Soon rocks and bottles began to crash in the police ranks. Please Turn to Page 8, Col. 2 Please Turn lo Page 8, Col. 7 Please Turn to Page 8, Col. 3 Speed Guidelines Changed ... Highway System Sets New Limits (EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third in a series of three articles designed to inform all Pennsylvanians regarding the new Point System legislation effective July 24, 1966. This article points out the changes that are being made in Ihe speed limits on many Pennsylvania highways, one of the least publicized aspects of the new law. While the Pennsylvania Point System is revamping the driver's attitudes through education, "roadside Pennsylvania" is undergoing a bit of revamping also. The "new look" is the result of speed limit changes being made in keeping with the new Point System. Fair tonight, low 50 to 60. Friday mostly sunny and little change in temperature.

"Speaking for the people, the Pennsylvania legislature has incorporated certain basic changes in the speed limits on Pennsylvania highways," said Edmund R. Ricker, director of the Bureau of Traffic for the Pennsylvania Highway Department. While these changes in speed limits have been anticipated by the legislation, none will be in effect before the highways are marked!

All three MIGs were brought down by heat-seeking Sidewinder missiles. As U.S. Air Force F4C Phantoms were blasting the MIG21s, North Viet Nam's fastest jet fighter, U.S. B52 bombers pounded an area just south of the 17th Parallel frontier where an estimated 5,000 infiltrating Communist troops were believed to be massing.

Three minutes later the second delta-wing MIG21 was shot down 50 miles northwest of the North Vietnamese capital. Capt. William J. Swc-nder, 31, of Alamogordo, N.M., and 1st LI. Duane A.
