Some bright students are for-

who helps them grow as they
should, Mrs. Gordon said, but the
Advanced Placement Program is
an attempt to institutionalize
Program 'Most Important'
Despite the small number of
exceptionally bright st u d e n t s,
"each one' is very precious and
easily injured by living in a world
set up for the average person,"
Mrs. Gordon maintained.
The Advanced Placement Pro-
gram is therefore "most import-
ant" to individual growth over
and above the good it may do for
the country in general, she con-
Mrs. Gordon cited the not un-
usual case of the bright child who
hides his high IQ from his family
and community because he is
perceptive enough to know that
his exceptional intelligence makes
life difficult. The Program at-
tempts to provide a means of
recognition to give the bright
child "the courage to be as bright
as he is," Mrs. Gordon said.
This program is an effort to
organize and make a v a i a b l e
everywherenthe opportunity for
advancement. Where there are
too few bright students in a
school to make the program
worthwhile, a tutorial system is
provided, after which the student
can take the advanced placement
examination when he enters col-
By completing some college re-
quirements while in high school
through the Program, the college
student may begin graduate work
earlier, or have more time to ex-
plore various fields.
The able and ambitious student
must be invited to take these col-
lege level courses offered in high
school through this program. He
must be able to carry the com-
plete high school course plus one
course in advanced work.
Uses Analytical Method
The student participating in
the program must have his fam-
ily's approval, since he is expect-
ed to buy the books for his ad-
vanced course and pay for out-
side activities, such as plays, .oft-
en important in his special curri-
culum. The "financially handi-
capped" gifted student, however,
is given support by the education
Mrs. Gordon stressed the ana-
lytical method in teaching her
advanced English course. By cov-
ering a play "inch by inch" in
the classroom, the student learns
to read analytically, thus gaining
valuable preparation for college.
Education boards are reluctant
'to spend extra money for the
special teachers required for the
Advanced Placement Program,
but "those students who can give
us leadership and insight should
be supported," she concluded.
Set for Today
Washtenaw County residents
will be advised of the start of to-
day's large-scale "take cover"
exercise by a three-minute wail-
ing of sirens ,ringing of church
bells and blowing of whistles.
All residents have been asked
by Civil Defense Director Gerald
G. Miller to take cover when they
hear the signals, which will be
shortly after 2 p.m. The drill will
last for 10 minutes.
When the exercise ends, there
will be two 30-second sounds
from the sirens, whistles and
bells, separated by a minute of
silence, notifying residents of the
"all clear signal."
All' traffic within city and vil-
lage limits will be stopped and
drivers will be asked to get out
of their cars and take shelter in-
side nearby stores and other
BOOKS, BOOKS, BOOKS!-In the corridors of University High School the passer-by can find
exhibits of books, both texts and informal reading matter. The exhibit is on display in conjunction
with the conference on elementary education, which ends today. It includes an extensive selection
of children's literature, including many award-winning books. Also in the exhibit are illustrated
books from many countries, giving the display an international flavor. The exhibit was set up by
the University Library.
Machine Stimulates Boy's Heart
ELECTRONIC WATCHDOG-The machine in the left background, known as an "electronic watch-
dog," is connected to the chest of Jimmy Brunk, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Brunk of Dearborn. It
helps to keep the 18-month-old boy alive by stimulating and pacing his heart when it stops. He has
had twelve such attacks in the last three months. The youngster, victim of a congenital heart block,
is shown being tended by Nurse Merle Stanley. University Medical Center doctors are 'seeking the
proper medicines and dosages which will eventually free Jimmy from his dependence on the machine.
