DOT Finds Funds
To Resurface 98
Representative William- dRish-hinounced this week
that funds are now available for thq resurfacing of High-
way 98 through Gulf County from the Bay County line
to Franklin 'County. The Department of Transporta-
tion had promised to make repairs to the .major highway
earlier this year, but their budget for Northwest Florida
had already been committed and funds were not available
for the-job, according to Rish.
Rish expressed appreciation to all local government
officials and civic leaders for backing him in securing this
needed project. Bids are scheduled for letting this month
or January for the resurfacing which should be comple-
ed before the summer traffic causes undue congestion.
The resurfacing of 98 has been needed for several
years-especially in the Beaches area, and local interests
have been working on the project for some time.

Paxton jumped off to a four
point lead and still held on to
their margin at half time. But
the Sharks, behind the shooting
of Sandy Quinn, Tim Grandber-
Gary Speights, Kendrick Bryant
and Donnie Herring closed the
gap in the third period and had.
it tied up 36-36 going into the
final stanza. Sandy Quinn hit for
eight of his game-leading 18
points in the big third.
The Sharks grew cold in the
last quarter and managed only
11 points while Paxton was pil-

S -. : Quinn and Tim Grand-
berry led the, Shark attack with
18 and 13 .'points respectively.

altering the way teaching is
done in Gulf County as. 'else-

education. It has been argued in.
other columns that the scarcity

Too Late To Classif

According to a recent press
report a. case challenging the,
right of schools to paddle a
youngster without parents' con-
sent was carried all the way to
the supreme,' court. The court
declined to make a ruling on the
I do not have the details of
the case. It is my guess, how-
teachers and i'r. are used in
education' will change 'very rap-
idly in the near future. This we'
might call a change in the tech-
*nology of education and the
changes that may beexpected
take a number of forms.. First,
there is the, better utilization of
the teaching force. .
If you look at the thing histor-
ieplly, teachers have been used
in' different ways. For example,
in the middle of the :'..i :..*
century, when skilled teachers
were particularly scarce, a sys-..
temnof pupil teaching came into
operation. E. a c h professional
teacher had a number of pupils
aged between 14- and 18 who
themselves taught, the youngest
Another modification of this
system was the use of the class
monitor as a person who kept or-
der and who also instructed the
younger children by rot. It will
be clear that in thin kd of
teaching the emphasis must be

disastrof 60ionsequences 'of this
method have been a- common-
place of textbd.ok oci teaching
for many years. ChbMiera would
,learn stock answers 0 stocek
questions and if asked the W16g
questions would give a ludicrGUo
reply. Yet in the circumstances
of the time given the acute short-
age of skilled teachers, this sys-
tem indeed made sense.
It was only as the number of
trained teachers became great-
er and able to cope with the
flood of children in the late nine-
teenth century that the system
gradually went out of favor. It
is still in use however in those
parts of the world where there
is an acute te'aecex shortage.

About the time we finished printing this week's is-
sue of The Star last night, the United States sent its last
manned space ship hurtling toward' the Moon. Many may
think an era has come to an end and there will be no more
manned space probes. Scientists are promoting .strictly
instrumented' space packages. But Werner Von Braun,
the man who had most to do with putting"Americans on
the Moon first, says we will have colonies: on the Moon
by the&turn of the century.
As we have commented here before-, manned Moon
shots are becoming commonplace now and' aie hardly
noticed.' Even the :-. ,L last night, wi'hi. h was'supposed to
be visible all over North F'r T and ,S.: -'i'h Ge.-'gpt, prob-
ably drew scant attention. The Moon walk is now com-
monplace and is only a step to greater things with which
to capture the imagination and wonder of Americans.
Even io, the current trip to the Moon is probably
more :-..:.-: to lh,.: 4 r. the trip than' the first
shot was to most Americans. We wish them- luck be-
cause even if the .'.-,f is every day fare to. us, it is still
a t.: j:.,.. technical and dangerous trip.
Thirty-one years ago today, the news,-media blared
