If its so bad why do our parents do it SICK FISH Even triplefiltered smoke from a cou ple of cigarettes can make a little fish mighty sick instructor Lowell Cook shows Carleen Edeker in his Roosevelt Junior High School seventhgrade science class In spite of the cigarettes own filter a tar trap and two pieces of filter paper smoke bubbling through water in the flask does the fish obvious could kill except that the demonstration is always stopped before that point This is just one of the school systems ways of telling the tobacco story to Mason Citys younger generation Editors Note This is the last in a series of four articles on cigarette smoking among Mason City public school stu dents By JAMES R OWENS Mason City school teachers believe they are doing a good ob of telling facts about tobacco to the communitys young peo ple But they know that the best possible job on their part is not going to stop children from choosing to smoke The information for pupils is sometimes presented dramat ically Seventh graders watch a small fish become unmistake ably sickened in a fiask of smoky water and are invited to judge the benefits of tobacco smoke Senior high students see a film presentation on how tobac co material can induce cancer ir rats Fifth and sixth graders are siown slides on the workings of Umgs and the amounts of lung cancer among smokers as com pared with nonsmokers There is also a simple factual approach as when a sixth grad er reads in his text a listing of eight specific poisons or poison ous gases in tobacco smoke But a question from a Roose velt

He could repeat that adults acquired the cigarette habit before dangers were well known a point the slide pro gram had also made u 1 But the teacher admittedly could not really justify adult be hcvier The class took the opportu nity to learn more about tobacco and its effects Most members but half a dozen of 31 experimented with smoking they indicated by show of hands They could answer some questions on the unpleas antness of smoke from exper ience But they also are well awara that adults find something in the habit that is hard to give up and they quoted parents and neighbors directly This is the problem John Tidball Roosevelt Elementary School principal said We can give them more information and better information but that is not enough child is learning all time Tidball said and
