Associated Press Education Writer
WASHINGTON ((P)) - Dr.
James B. Conant loosed a harsh
attack on the "educational estab-
lishment" yesterday and urged the
50 states to get together on a na-
tionwide educational policy.'
Conant, president emeritus of
Harvard University, emphasized'
he was not speaking of a national
educational policy, to be establish-
ed and directed by the federal
government.

WASHINGTON (OP)) - Prof.
eanne L. Noble has turned in the
ueprint for the nation's first Job
orps training centers for women.
She hopes the first contract will
signed by Feb. 1 to launch resi-
ential centers where 6,500 girls,
ge 16-21, can be helped to break
e dead-end chains of poverty.
And she's recommending that a
oman be named as a Job Corps
eputy director with a voice at
olicy-making levels, where wo-
en are not now included.
Worked Five Months
Miss Noble, an associate profes-I
r of New York University's Cen-
r for Human Relations, handed
e government her resignation
ong with the 40-page guideline
.e and her staff of experts have
orked five months to prepare.
They spell out how the women's
nters are to be operated under
st-reimbursed government con-
acts with local groups and indi-
duals - such as universities,
ards of education, women's or-
nizations, youth and welfare
encies, industry and private op-
ators.
Hardly a detail has been skip-,
d, even down to the suggestion
at stamped postcards be provid-
enrollees so they can notify
milies of their safe arrival.
Not Fragmented Efforts
Miss Noble, who worked for two
ars with groups aiding Harlem
um youngsters, has placed main
iphasis on helping the girls in
is project as a whole and not as
fragmented efforts.

The Job Corps, enacted by Con-
gress as part of President Lyndon
B. Johnson's drive against pover-
ty, was amended at the request of
Rep. Edith Green, (D-Ore), to in-
clude women, who were described
as "the poorest of the poor."
Miss Noble's task force, in gath-
ering statistics, reports that one-
fourth of all poor families are
headed by women, and that girls
drop out of school in greater num-
bers than boys.
Whisper in a Whirlwind
There are almost half a million
girls in the United States who are
poverty-stricken potential partic-
ipants in this job corps program
set up for 6,500 of them. "Only a
whisper in a whirlwind," Miss
Noble notes.
Among its basic decisions, Miss
Noble's group determined that
there would be no rural camps for
women. They feel the girls will

fare better in city residential cen-
ters, where they can be given
homemaking and vocational train-
ing and take part in cultural and
job opportunities that the cities
have to offer.
No center will have more than
250 enrollees. That means there's
room for a minimum of 26 cen-
ters across the country under the
proposed program.1
Matching Amount
Girls can enroll for up to two
years and get paid when they
leave, at the rate of about $50 a
month. They can send home de-
ductions of up to $25 a month and
the government will add a match-
ing amount.
With a national staff standing
by to advise, it is hoped there'll be
enough local inventiveness and
community participation to help
Job Corps girls help themselves
out of poverty.

Miss Noble, one of the nation's
best known Negro professors, has
brought enthusiasm to the job of
planning centers to train under-
privileged girls. She was named
to the temporary task force job
las June by Poverty Program Di-
rector Sargent Shriver. She comes
from the South-Albany, Ga.
Importance of Mission
Miss Noble found working on
this government project exciting
but said there were bureaucratic
pitfalls. For example, she said
some of her staff, who worked 10
and 12 hours a day, didn't get any
pay in four months. "I had to
keep reminding them of the im-
portance of the mission." Besides,
their quarters were moved four
times.

A more secure permanent job
setup would help insure the suc-
cess of the project, Miss Noble
suggests.
She has also turned in the
names of four or five persons she
thinks would qualify to head the
women's job c e n t e r project."
They're nationally known educa-
tors who have had experience
working with underprivileged, de-
pendent and minority groups.
Miss Noble wouldn't name them,
and she ruled herself out as a
candidate.
Miss Noble also proposed a na-
tional advisory committee made
up of experts from among a group
of 100 women leaders who came
here recently at their own expense
for a two-day Job Corps planning
conference.

In the 115 years that Omega has been
making fine watches, many thou-
sands of proud owners have attested
to the fact that even after decades
of use, their Omegas still tell time
faithfully. Unlike ordinary watches,
every Omega is crafted of the-finest
materials with meticulous care, for a
lifetime of proud possession.

From the designer's sketches and production blueprints
to the final assembly, an Omega undergoes exactly 1497
separate inspections. One out of every four Omega em-
ployees is a quality-control supervisor. It takes four times
longer to make an Omega than an ordinary watch. Omega
precision is so great that it has won important accuracy
awards at leading observatories and has been chosen to
time many Olympic Games, where a difference of 1/10th
of a second can mean a new world record.
You get maximum dependability and accuracy in every
Omega. The balance wheel oscillates 1000 to 3000 times
more per hour than ordinary watches. This is similar to
automobile horse-power. A 300-horse-power engine

cruises easily at 60 miles an hour. The same speed in a
150-horse-power engine can be a strain. The faster beat
of the Omega movement counteracts the stress and pull
of forceful wrist motions and jars and jolts which often
affect the performance of the average watch.
Many Omega watches have self-winding movements,
completely eliminating the daily nuisance of hand wind-
ing. While you wear it, the Omega automatic stores up its
own winding power, thanks to the ingenious, gravity-
powered 360* rotor which turns to and fro with everyday
natural wrist motions ... keeping the movement always at
peak tension for greater accuracy. Just set it and forget it.
With an Omega date-telling calendar watch, you have
the convenience of seeing the exact
date as well as the exact second.. .
,~ in one glance. Every midnight, auto-
matically, the next date-numeral
moves into place. Only 5 times per
year (in the months with less than
31 days) need you re-set the date
