"Perigord, one of the most seclud-
ed sections of France, is rich, in the
ruins of civilizations dating back
twenty thousand years," Mme. Arline
Caro-Delvaille, said in her lecture
yesterday at Natural Science Audi-
Mine. Caro-Delvaille illustrated her
lecture with motion pictures of Ro-
man ruins, prehistoric caves with
their primitive drawings and carvings,
and old cathedrals, some of them the
finest existing examples of Roman
and Byzantine architecture.
The people of Perigord are care-
free and optimistic-and are noted for
their excellent cooking, she said. Some
of them live in weird looking cave-
like dwellings.

The publication will be widely cir-

dealing with the classification of in-

Teachers' Administrative Work
Limited, SchoolSurvey Shows

309 South State Street- At the Dillon Shop

Participation in school administra-
tion by teachers is largely limited to
the offering of suggestions while final
decisions are made by the administra-
tion alone, writes Wilbur E. Moser,
head of the mathematics department
at Pittsburg High School, Pittsburg,
In an article in "The Nation's
Schools," he reports the findings of
a survey in which 660 teachers and
90 administrators from 103 Califor-
nia elementary and secondary schools
cdntributed information.
Teachers have the greatest oppor-
tunity to express opinions on the
development of policies and practices
in functions that are closely related
to classroom procedures, according to
Mr. Moser's survey, which shows the
greatest amount of teacher-partici-
pation is found in the construction or
revision of the curriculum.
Functions that deal with the con-
trol and supervision of pupils rank
next in Mr. Moser's survey which
finds that 50 per cent of the policy
changes in student government have
been made by teachers and adminis-
trators cooperating both in the de-
velopment and final decisions. More
than 80 per cent of the teachers do
no participate in general business ad-
ministration, Mr. Moser added.

Finally, "the least amount of
teacher participation is in those func-
tions that affect the teacher person-
ally as a member of his profession. The
supervision of instruction, the sal-
ary schedule, the work load of teach-
ers and increases in salary, as a re-
ward for growth and efficient service,
show little or no teacher participa-
"Policies and practices regarding
these functions are largely developed
and }decided by the administration
with little or no participation on the
part of the teachers."
When 556 women from 171 col-
leges enroll for secretarial training
at Katharine Gibbs, this trend is,
significant to all forward-looking
college women. Today secretarial
training is prerequisite for better
secretarial positions. A college
education combined with Gibbs
training readily opens doors to
pleasant, profitable positions.
