He estimated that it costs $1,300 a year for commu ter students to attend school. SOME 2,800 students on campus h ave a personal fami ly income of less t han $5,300 and therefore scholarships and loans are very important to the student,said Allen. Andrew C.

USF LA's Top Average: GRE Tonight By JOHN CALDERAZZO Staff Writer "The results of the Gradu ate R e co r d Examinatons (GRE) given here the last several years consistently show that graduating USF se niors display a better than av erage knowledge of Liberal Arts," Dean Rusell M. Coo per, College of Liberal Arts, said last week. He added that the USF scores , which are compared to the national collegiate av erage by the Educational Testing Service, Princeton, N.J., "strengthen my faith in the Bas ic Studie s and Liberal Arts programs here." At 6 :30 p.m. today and 8 :30 a. m. Saturday a flock of grad uating seniors who hope to at tend graduate schoo l and all Liberal Arts seniors, will file into th e Phy sics auditorium to tackle the len g thy test: : Al though they all realize they are required to take the GRE, many question it s purpose and validity . DEAN COOPER provid es the answers. "There are r ea lly thr ee tests," he said. "There is the Area T es t, which all Liberal Arts and Basic Studies seniors must take. It measures a stu d e nt' s ge n e ral knowledge and i s administered and paid for by USF. "Then there i s the Aptitude Test, which is verbal and quantit a tive and i s a pure measure of intelligence. It i s a prerequisi t e for USF gradu a te programs and many oth ers, and costs $7. "FINALLY THERE are th e Specifics, a group' of 1 5 or 20 spec ialized t es t s covering al mos t every field of knowled ge taught in schools today. Only certain gra duate schools re quire a ppli ca nts to take these." Why must s o many s tud ents t ake the Area, or general knowled ge test? Dean Cooper said it func tions lik e a "medical check up" for both USF and th e in dividual s tud e nt and com pares the "breath and d epth of o u r Lib era l Arts knowled ge with that of the rest of the country . " He conducted, "Our main concern is that our gra du a t es be well rounded people. The GRE helps us find out." t I ttru I t$J lt$J I@J lt$J VOL. 1 -NO. 32 UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH FLORIDA, TAMPA, MAY 24, 1967' Subscription Rate Poge 2 CB REPRESENTATIVE SAYS Capitol 'Bloodletting' Due In Battle Of The' Budget "Tom Spencer's aide said not to worry about the Demo crats. When this thing breaks, there's going to be a lot of bloodletting." Jim Cooner, representative from the College of Basic Studies, told this to the Stu dent Association (SA) legisla ture Thursday night in his re port on SA efforts to reduce the proposed tuition increase. The 90-minute session was in University Center 252. An other SA meeting is scheduled for this Thursday in the same room at 7 p.m. The legislature will be meeting weekly during the summer, SA Vice presi dent Don Gifford said. SPENCER, DEMOCRATIC state senator from Miami, told Gifford, Cooner, and stu dent Sen . Frank Caldwell last week that he would back stu dent efforts, now contained in a bill introduced by Sen . Lawton Chiles of Lakeland, in keeping quarterly state uni versity tuition at $100. The USF delegation was in Tallahassee at the beckoning of Chiles, who wanted to dis cuss the issue. Cooner said the Legislature is thinking about enacting a one per cent "transaction" tax to replace a possible five per cent state sales tax. He said it would result in greater revenue to tax all transaction involving money, than just on sales. COONER ADDED t h a t Duval County State Sen. John Mathews woul d prob ab ly be the next president of the Sen ate. He said "We have some very important support up there." "There's going to be a tax increase," Cooner said. He set June 30 as the day of reckoning between Democrats and Gov. Kirk on the budget. The new fiscal year starts July 1, also the scheduled date the new Florida constitution is set to take effect. Consideration of the consti tution is supposed to start after the Legisla t ure finishes its regular business. COONER SAID quite a bit of the House and Senate ap propriations would go back to the universities. "When this thing blows," Cooner said about tuition, "we hope we can get it down." Caldwell told the legislators the SA will start a mailout campaign to all report card addresses. Those over 21 will receive it themselves, those under 21 will have it sent to parents, he said. A fact sheet will go to the Legislature in Tallahassee Tallahassee Watchers signed by SA Pres. John };[ogue detailing the financial situation a tuition boost would cause students, Caldwell added . HE URGED other universi ties "to set up the same type program." The list of Hills borough representatives and senators, he said, is available in the SA office, CTR 219. Before Cooner and Caldwell reported in Tallahassee, the 18 newly elected legislators were sworn in. Nine more w e r e appointed including three new senators, all for the summer. Claude Scales, R o b e r t Brown, and Robert Carpenter took these offices, and Car penter was elected president pro tempore of the Iegisla ture , making him number three in rank under Hogue and Gifford.

His reference to the UFO que stion was that "an award has been made to Dr. Robert Compton, a reputable scientist and not a seli styled expert," by the U .

Vance Packard, re nown critic of society and first in USF's s ummer " Meet The Author" lectures last Wednesday, retorted "The younger generation is coming to lectures." Packard disc ussed the im pact of technology on the values of modern society. He urged the young people of today to become strong indivi dualists with self-mas tery and maturity. H e said, "Let us seek freedom, but do it re sponsibly." The effects of te c hnology, Packard said, are eqaully dramatic as thos e attributed by Frederick Jackson Turner to the fronti er. HE CONTENDED, howev er, that while the social prod ucts of the frontier were seli reliance and individu a lity, the "social fallout" of technology are restlessness, hedonism, and narcissism. Some economists, Packard warned, believe tha t "any economic activity is good if it increase s c o n s u m e r demands." Much advertising strive s to stimulate the con s umer' s latent wants and ex ploit s the pleasure principl e a s a technique for selling goods. The prime target of most advertising, Packard ex plained, is the younger gener ation. He told of one s ign that featured a s tork with the cap tion, "This bird means bu si n ess."

Editorials And Commentary 2-May 24, 1967 -U . of South Florida, Tampa FSU Vs. GOP A case of what seems to be a conflict of interest exists at Flori da State University. The president of the student body, Gene Stearns, . who as a result, is a member of the Florida Council of Student Body Presidents, works for the Florida Legislature. The Council has recently been occupied with the tuition issue, calling on the Legislature to keep tuition at $100 per quarter. The opinion of the Council at a meeting at USF May 6 was unanimous: op position to any increase in tuition. This is clearly in opposition to Gov. Claude Kirk's proposal to raise tuition to $150 per quarter. Kirk is a Republican and has called on his fellow Republicans to back his policy to the hilt. STEARNS HAS supported the Council's position. But he also works for three state senators who also happen to be Republicans. The trouble is, nobody knows who he is really working for, the Republican senators, or the stu dents at FSU and subsequently as a member of the Council, the stu dent body of the state university system. Plain politics says that it is the Democrats who are pushing hard est, at least vocally, to scrape up every dollar for the higher educa tion budget, and it was a Demo cratic senator from Lakeland who filed for introduction a bill putting a $100 ceiling on tuition. WE COULD u n d e r s t a n d Stearn's actions if he disagreed with the Council's position. But he said he doesn't. It is obvious which job Stearns prefers: that with the Legislature. He has not been available for Council meetings Ot' even phone discussions. It was Stearns who called off the Council meeting in Tallahassee May 13 for an unex plained reason. It was not because the Council's tuition plan was found unconstitutional. Last week's emergency ses sion of the Council in Tallahassee proves this point, at least from the view of the other Council mem bers. THE BENEFITS of working with the Legislature are obvious: connections with influential legis lators, and a career opportunity. What intelligent college student wouldn't want a job like that? And yet, who wouldn't want to be president of the student body of his college? That looks pretty good on a job application form. It is a choice Stearns is going to have to make if he is to perform either job in the best interests of his bosses, the Republican senators and the FSU student body. If any of our FSU readers feel angered that USF would poke its nose into FSU business, they have a right to be. But we are ex p ressing an opinion down here be cause it is not solely FSU business. It is the business of the entire stu dent body of the state universities of Florida, not just FSU's, because it involves the Council. IT ALSO SAYS that an em ployee of three Republicans is not going to possibly embarrass his bosses by joining the fight against the policy of a governor of the same party. WE WOULD call on the carpet That is the position that Stearns any other student president, in-is in right now. The Council is nat-eluding our own, if he were in the urally getting the most cooperation position Stearns is in right now. We from, and is working mostly with, would call on him to resign one of Democrats in opposition to a Re-his jobs. publican governor's policy which We ask that of Stearns right the Council has gone on record as now. He must choose one o r the opposing. other: the Florida Legislature, or This is why some students close the FSU student body and the to the Council feel Stearns is hurtCouncil that represents 50,000 Flor-ing it. He is trying to serve two { ida students. masters diametrically opposed to Until he does, he is not serving each other. the best interests of either. If's Not -Too Late It's not over yet. That's the story the USF delegation brought back from Tallahassee last week after meeting with legislators. With the Democrats announcing a policy of "showdown" politics against the Republicans, the dele gation brought back stories of a se ries of possible Kirk vetoes that could send the appropriation bill back to committess for reformula tion, should a veto go uncontended. The possibility means that the long tuition battle still has some skirmishes ahead with no decisive outcome predictable. IT MEANS that tuition could still remain at $100 per quarter. The delegation spoke to Senators Chiles and McClain, and numerous other senators and House mem bers. The common theme running through all of their discussions, ac cording to the delegation, was let ters. Sen. Chiles, whose bill wants to keep tuition at $100, said that letters from constituents couldn't be overestimated in importance. Not only are they read, he was quoted as saying, but they are the onl y barometer of constituent pres sure they have.

If he can show that he will not be able to attend school because of it, and knows of others who will be unable to attend, he is precisely the one the legislators fighting to keep tuition down want to hear from. They have to be able to show the opposition what the bill will do to their constituents, if passed or voted down. It is this response that Chiles and supporters o f his bill want to see.

The Oracle for the progress they have made in g iving the University of South Florida campus an outstanding n e wspaper. I was particularly impressed by the magazine section and the quality of journalisti c work included in it. I sin cerely hope that next year's editor will find the financial s upport and staf f sup port to cont inu e with such a publication . GEORGE H. MILLER Director Cooperative Education s y , 1Makes By REP. FRANK THOMPSON (D-N.J . ) WASHINGTON, D.C. (CPS)-The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently launched an investigation of bana na peel smoking. This was very good news to me, since I have beeen extremely concerned over the serious increase in the use of halluci nogenics of youngsters. Apparently , it was not enough for this generation of thrill-seekers to use illicit LSD, marijua na, and airplane glue. They ha ve now in vaded the fruit stand. The implications are qui te clear. From bananas it is a short but shocking step to other fru its . Today the cry is "Burn, Banana , Burn . " Tomorrow we may face strawberry smoking, dried apricot inhali ng , or prune puffing. WHAT CAN CONGRESS do in thi s time of crisis? A high official in the FDA has declared: "Forbidding the smoking of material from banana peels would re quire congressional legislation." As a legislator, I feel it my duty to respond to this call for action. I ask Congress to give thoughtul consideration to legislation entitled, ap propriately, the Banana and Other Odd Fruit Disclosure and Reporting Act of 1967. The target is those banana-smoking beatniks who seek a make-believe land, "the land of Honalee," as it is described in the peel puffers ' secret psychedeli c marching song, "Puff, the Magic Dr ag on. " PART OF THE problem is, with ba nanas at 10 cents a pound, these beatniks can afford to take an halluc i nogenic trip 1., . > I f! i L .. ... each and every day. Not even the New York City subway system, which adver tises the longest ride for lhe cheapest pr)ce, cpn claim for pennies a day to send its passengers out of this wor ld. Unfortunately, many people have not as yet sensed the seriousness of this hlll lucinogenlc trlplaking. Ban anas may help exp lain the ttancell ke quality of much of the 90th Congress proceed ings. Just yesterday I saw on the lun ch eon menu of the Capitol dining room a breast of chi cken Waiklkl entry topped with, of all things, fried bananas. AN OFFIOIAL OF the United Frui t Co., daringto treat this banana crisis with levity, recently said, "The on1y trip you can take with a banana Is when you slip on the peel. " But I am wary of United Fruit and their ilk, because, as the New Yotk Times pointed out, United "stands to reap large profits if the banana smoking wave catches on." United has good rea son to encourage us to fly high on psy chedelic trips. And consequently, I think twice every time I hear that TV com mercial, "Fry the friendly skies of Unite d." But let me get back to what Congress must do. We -must move quickly to stop the sinister spread of banana smoking. Those of my colleagues who occasional l y smoke a cigarette of tobacco will probably agree with the English states man who wrote: "The man who smokes thinks like a sage and acts like a samar itan." BUT TilE BANANA smoker is a different breed. He is a driven man who cannot get the banana off his back. Why Join A . Sorority? Rush Group Answers By RUSH PUBLICITY COMMITTEE One of the most impor t an t things a girl can ask herself upon com ing to a college or university is "should I join a sorority?" To answer this question it is first necessary to find the answer to ''What is a sorority?" There are many answers to this ques tion for a sorority can be many things depending on what the members make it. During the past year, USF h as wit n essed a number of cha nges in sorority life. Four sororities have gone national Delta Delta Delta, ' Delta Zeta, and Kappa Delta became chapters in Janu ary, and Alpha Delta Pi became a colo ny in Apr il. THERE ARE AlSO four other sorori ties Delta Phi Alpha and Chi Chi Chi whkh became local in November and April, and Delta Sigma Tau and P hi Gamma Chi whkh b ecame provincial in March and M ay. All of our sororities are ba sical ly alike in that they s tres s high standards and worthwhile activities . Sororities at USF plan in influ ent ial role in all aspects of campus life . The member s take an active part in student government by r epresenting the s tudent body in organizations s uch as the Student Association and dormitory government. THEY AlSO TAKE part in the vari ous CTR committees and pro g r a ms. Fo r instance , many sorority girls will be found participating in the Orientation, Big Sister , and Motley Crew progr a ms i n the fall. Stressing good sportsmanship, sororities t ake an active interest in the intramural sports on camp us, and are highly enthusiastic over th e many Greek Week activities. Scholarship among the sororities is highy stressed as evidenced by the ac tive competition among the sororities for the annual P an hellenic Scholarship Award . Ther e a r e a number of sorority gir l s in the honor organizations such as Athenaeum and GQld Key, and in 1966, the sorority GPR was 2.59 in comparison to th e alluniverS'ity average of 2.43. Not only do our soror iti es t ake an ac tive part in camp u s life, but they show great concern for the community aro und them as well. Each member takes part in some service project during the year to better the world she lives in . AS THE PRESENT article shows, the ultimate goal of a sorority is to be a group of young women bound tog ether by common goals, high ideals, and lasting ties of sisterhood; for the better ment of he rself, her school, and her com munity. Now that t he rea der as an id ea of what a sorority is, she may have found t he answer to the first quest ion, " Should I join a sorority?" If she ha s reached her decision to become a vital part of the USF campus by becoming an active Greek, the best t hing to do is to take ac tion and the time is now. Registration for fa ll rush will be Sun day in the Unive r sity Cen te r Ballroom f r om 2 to 5 p.m. We hope to see her there. Driven by his need for bananas , he may take to cultlvatina bananas in his own backyard . The character of this country depends on our llblllty, above aU else, to prevent the growing o! banl\rlas here . Ralph Waldo Emerson gave us proper warning: "Where t he banana grows , man is ... cruel." The final resUlts are not in yet, however, on the extent of the banana threat. An FDA official has said tha t, judging from the four years of research needed to discover peyote's contents, It wJil probably take years to scienti fically the halluclnegenlc contents of ba nana . . We cannot wait years, particu larly when the world's most avid banana eater, the monkey, provides an lmmed l ate answer. WE CAN URE the monkey as a laboratory, seeing what effects bananas have on him. The FDA says It cannot tell if a monkey has hallucinogenic kicks; they t hink not. The problem, I feel is seeing the monkey munch in its natural habitat. To solve this dilemma, I propose the Peel Corp:;, necessarily a swinging set of young Americans capable of following the monkey as he moves through the for est leaping from limb to limb. On the homefront, I am requesting the President to direct the Surgeon Gen eral to update his landmark repor t on smoking and health to include a chapter on banana peels. In the meantime Con gress has a responsibility to give the public immediate warning. As you know, because of our decisive action, with respect to tobacco, cigarette smoking in the United States is almost at a stand still. This is becau s e every package of cigarettes that is sold now carrie s a warning message on lts side. . THEREFORE, I PROPOSE the Ba nana Labelling Act of 1967, a bill to re quire that every banana bear the fol lowing stamp: "Caution: Banana Peel Smo)dng May Be Injurious to Your Health. Never Put Bananas in the Re frigerator.'' There Is, of course, one practical problem with this legislation: banana peels turn black with age. At that point, the warning sign becomes unreadab le. It may be necessary, as a consequence, to provide for a peel depository, carefully ruarded, to protect the public from aged peels. I 11m now requesting of the Secte tary of th e Treasury that, given the imbalance of the gold flow, some of the empty room at Fort Knox be given over to such a peel deposit ory . AS \VJTH ANY revolutionary r ef orm movement, t expect the forces of opposi tion to be quite strong. One only has to look at the tota l lack of Federal law or regulation relating to bananas to realize the banana lobby ' s power. We have regu lations on avocados, dates, figs, oranges, lemons, pears, peaches, plums, and rai sins. But bananas have slipped by un scathed. What we need across the length and breadth of th is great land i s a grass roots move to ban the banana, to repeal the peeL Howard Johnson's can survive with only 27 flavors . And what is wrong with an avacado split? I will only breathe easier when this country, this land we love, can declare, "Yes, we have no bananas; we have no bananas tod ay." SECOND OF FOUR PARTS Special Language Screens Out Squares By HENRY WINTHROP Chairman and Professor Interdisciplinary Social Sciences An enumeration of examples of the expression of the new decadence would not be complete if we failed to mention the cultivatio n of a specia l vocabulary in order to shut out "squares" and parents from one's life, demonstrations as an outlet for one's popping hormones, mo torcycle safaris which put "hoods," juve nile delinquents and youthful molls on wheels, dissent for the sake of dissent, and "snuggle-ins" as a mea ns of "get ting to know you." Many of th ese are modern, but thinly disguised forms of decadence. This type of decadence, says Joad, is always concerned with the "dropping of the object." By this phrase Joad refers to the refusal to ask oneself to what ends the experience one seeks is to be pu t and the even more important refusal to rec ognize that some ends are appropriate to t h e quest for expe rience, while othe r s are not. A VALUE JUDGMENT that there are aspects of the youth movement and of teen -ag e culture, which are decad e n t will a l most always be avoided by most social scientists . Such judgments will usu ally be y isked by historians , human ists and social philosophers. There are no operational definitions of "deca dence. " This is a term of evaluation which is invoked in a climate of opinion. In this way, says Joad, one avoids the norm al problem of a choice be tween good and evil or even the problem o f having to ask the question , "What values are most worthwhile?" Joad notes three consequences of such a posture; (1) experience will be val ued for its own sake, since it cannot be for the sake of any th ing else; (2) experience will be judged only by the standard of how much p l ea sure it provides ; while (3) we shall tend to hold that the more intense and varied our experience, the better it is. BOTH THE HIP generation and cer tain sects of the youth movement can also be criticized for rejecting t he capi talistic order, precisely beca us e they are in many cases (though not all, of course) ignorant of the workings of the system against which they ven t their spleen. Their members have no sense of the eco nomi c complexity of modern life. T hey have never participated in an economic decision t hat affects the whole country, as man y Federal economists do daily. They have never heard of such books as tha t of Louis Kelso and Mortimer Adler, "The Capitalist Manifesto," John K. Galbraith ' s "American Capitalism," Andrew Shonfield's "Modern Capital ism," or the historian Clark C. Spence ' s "The Sinews of American Capitalism." They are not likely to have read that lib eral defense of the American, industrial structure, "Toward A Re asona ble Socie ty," by C. E. Ayres , a former associate editor of "The New Republic," a liberal weekly that can hardly be accused of harboring reactionaries. IF THEY HAVE done any reading on the nature of capitalism, it is more likely to be Thurman Arnold's "The Folklore of Capitalism." But if we are to give the cap italist system a fair shake, we have to recognize tha t the free enterprise system created a h istorical breakthrough which the hipsters can hardly appreciate. The degree to which the virtues of capitalism are still highly usefu l in our changing , world is almost a complete blank in hipster consciousness. While this remains true, their indictment becomes an overstatement which is the economic equivalent of the valor of igno rance. THE AVANT-GARDE representatives of social protest are bitter about the havoc wrought by many of our demo cratic institutions. But this havoc is not the premeditated working out of demo cratic credo. Rather it is the result of that central feat ure of modern life, the acceleratio n of new scoience and technolo gy, and the social complexity of the im pact which both new science and new technology are creating. This resulting social complexity is producing unforeseen and undesirable social consequences, directly traceable to the urunanaged introduction of new science and technology into American life. But we are all victims of that tech nology, as Charles Frankel emphasizes in his "The Case For Modern Man." The Communist world is hit just as heavily by it as we are. THE SECONDARY, social conse quences of new technology, which are unwan ted because they create human misery, can be prevented in several ways. Let us mention only three of these ways here: (1) We can reduce the number of seri ous and undesirable secondary conse quen ces by a deliberate resea r ch on the anticipated social effects o f new science and program of technology. (2) A good many large-scale social errors can be avoided if we apply our selves to the reformation of the liberal outlook, so as to make it relevant to an age o f science and technology. (3) We can obt ain a better sense of our direction an d our achievements, if we establish methods for measuring the quality of our social and cult ural life . THE FffiST OF these needs is now being met by the work of all those indi viduals and organizations that are now part of what has become to be known as the "Year movement. This move ment is concerned with projections of the future states of society, as a result of emergence and technology, and some of the lik ely secondary consequences which such technology may produce. The second need i s being met by some of tl;le writing , thinking , and re search of contemporary social s cienti sts , writ ers, diplomats , intellectuals, social critics, and knowledgable journalists. The third need is being met by a re cent breakthrough in the management and social sciences a breakthrough which is concerned with .the development of what are now called by MIT's Ray mond A. Bauer as " social indicators." R esearc h in this field aims at establish ing a "social accounting" which will be wider in scope than accounting notions app lied on a national scale. The latter typically will focus attention only upon economic transactions . ' t \

All over the country colleges are de bating the emphasis that stu dents should or shouldn't be placed on numerical or letter grades. While USF does not use numbers to designate . degrees ot compete nce , the letter sys tem is in effect. No matter how the individual professor may evaluate his class dur ing the term, in the end it is translated into A, B, C, D, or F.

These people are concerned with the welfare of the resi dent students who live in the complex. THE R.A. is in charge of between 40 and 50 students on a floor. He or she lives on the floor and assists a student in any way possible academ ic, citizenship, social, person al care or personal de velop ment. The R.A.'s are in contact with residents more and it is important that-' they "be there" when a resident needs them. The Resident Counselors are between the R.I. and the R.A. Their job is one of coun seling residents when needed and helping the R.I. with the many jobs. The Resident Instructor is in charge of the entire hall and the resident ass i stants and the resident counselors. They are concerned with the protection of the residents and are available for personal and academic counseling also. same disadvantages as the quarter system. It doesn' t allow time lor extensive paper writing or original re search. The short time period forces the professor to use ab breviated teaching methods. " THERE ARE still other drawbacks, as expressed by Phil Kaner, 420, "I should be taking zoology courses, but few are available so that I have to take electives that are easier." Kramer said that even though "people who come in summer are here for study, and have a much more aca demic attitude, making the classes more interesting is harder and therefore you don't learn as much." Some courses are not of fered during iliA and IIIB be cause, as Robert Fuson, pro fessor of geography, pointed out, some co u r s e s can't be taught in the shorter time period. The student has to "have absorption time. He has to be able to sit back and soak it in." DR. FUSON said that cram ming a fourteen week course into seven weeks, with the same format, woul d be hard. "Generally speaking , it can't be done." He said that a course should be adjusted to the shorter period, and this gives an instructor an oppor tunity to experiment and try something new with the course. Lee L. Shackson, assistant professor of humanities, point ed out that the humanities de partment was not "trying to cram the old course (offered during Trimesters I and II) into seven weeks. We tailored a new course for the seven week period.'' Th is new course has no lecture and no tutorial; but is set up into the conventional class forma t . Whether a student or pro fessor agrees that t he sum mer term is easier or not, the general campus feeling was probably summed up by Marty Heiman, 320, when he said, "It's fun, but I wish I was home on the beach. " USF and seven Florida counties are cooperating to establish educational pro grams to help develop specif ic skills of gifted children. Dr. Marvin Gold, associate professor of research , is coor d i nator of the project which hopes to establish model dem onstration programs a nd cen ters for gifted youngsters in Hillsborough, Brevard, Or ange, Palm Beach, Polk , Pi nellas and Sarasota Counties. The project , which is direct ed toward elementary stu dents with high IQ's, is an at tempt to teach young childreh subjects they may otherwise not be exposed to this early in school.
