Hanoi, Haiphong:
top advisor dies
SAIGON 1"- -American warplanes battered the edges of
Hanoi and Haiphong this week with the most concentrated
bombing of North Vietnam's military heartland in more
than four years, U.S. officials said yesterday.
The officials also announced yesterday the death of
John Paul Vann, 47, in a helicopter crash. Vann, the senior
U.S. advisor in the central highlands and considered the
top American expert on pacification, became the highest
ranking civilian to die in the Vietnam war.
Vann was named senior adviser in the 2nd military
region 13 months ago, after several years in the Mekong
Delta where he earned a high reputation for his success in
pacification in the countryside.

Scheduled to open this fall,
High School (CHS)' is designed
to get the student out of the
classroom and into the com-
munity at-large.
Its most obvious innovation is
the community resource course,
a work-study opportunity in any
of several hundred areas of local
Ann Arbor endeavour.
The Community High School
is not a vocational training cen-
ter. It offers all the conventional
courses which Huron and Pio-
neer High Schools offer. But as
an alternative to the usual high
school experience, CHS aims, to
set each student in a wide vari-
ety of learning opportunities
throughout the community.
Dean Bodley, dean of the new
school, said that approximately
100 people have volunteered to
be community resources, while

30 teachers have applied for the
18 available teacher-counselor
positions. 483 students have en-

approach to education and at-
tempt to individualize their pro-
grams in order to meet each
student's needs and desires.
The two differ, however, in
the degree to which they are
structured. Pioneer II tends to
rely on the individual direction
of each student; little formal
curriculum planning; and the
use of teachers as resource per-
