April 16, the Independence Day parade will be held on this

ORT Project Lauded

by Mali's President

Inauguration of a Science
Center in the capital of the
West African Republic of Mali,
operated by ORT under con-
tract to the U.S. Government,
has been hailed as a major con-
tribution to the human and
technical development of this
new nation.
The Science Center was for-
mally opened last month in
Bamako in the presence of the
President of Mali, Modibo
Keita; the American Ambassa-
dor, S. E. Handly; American
ORT representative, Dr. Charles
Levinson; and ministers of the
Malian government.
President Keita described the
Science Center as a "nursery
for young technicians."
The ORT team is headed by
Adam Scherer, a graduate of
the Central ORT Institute in
Switzerland, and formerly a
specialist at the ORT vocational
school in Tunis. - Other ORT
personnel have been recruited
from ORT schools in Israel,
France, Morocco, Switzerland
and other areas. Each is a care-
fully chosen specialist in a tech-
nical or scientific field.
The Science Center in Bama-
ko, a large, one-story building
consisting of six sections, is
providing instruction in auto-
motive diesel engines, struc-
tural design, civil engineering,
secretarial skills and electron-
ics. Special courses have been
given to employees of the Bank
of Mali, senior civil servants,
and foremen and technicians of
the Ministry of Public Works.
A similar program of techni-
cal and teacher training is con-
ducted by ORT in the West
African state of Guinea, like-
wise under contract to the U.S.

upon millions of youngsters owe
much of their health and hope
to the United Nations Children's
Fund. Nearby, a dramatic photo-
graphic exhibit vividly illustrates
their needs and the work being
done on their behalf in more
than 100 developing countries.

Wonder Why,'
Genuine Appeal

Cass, states that this little
classic is leaving its impact and
is making it a best seller.
The brief text, to be read in
a few minutes, lists so many
things in life that are loved and
enjoyed and concludes with a
photograph of a colored girl
and an accompanying caption:
"I wonder why some people
don't like me." It is a great work
of art and a genuine appeal to
