WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5, 1977 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE \::;;P -Educating The Educators by Wllllam F. Buckley Guess what? Johnny doesn't learn to read better, wrlte better, or add, subtract, multlply and dlvlde better, lf you pack the schoolroom wlth all the lnnovatlve devlces pedagogy has come up wlth Slnce John Dewey dlscovered that learnlng could be palnless. That answer cost the taxpayers $1.8 mllllon, and lnvolved a study of the work of 60,000 elementary school puplls In nlne states, conducted over a perlod of three years. At that, the cost lS worth It. If lt cost $1.8 mllllon to establlsh that what the llttle, prlvately sponsored Councll on Baslc Educatlon has been telllng us for 25 years lS true, lt would be worth It. But the problem lS less to dlscover, and advertlse, the ObV10US. The problem lS how to reach the educatlonal bureau cracy. The mllllon report reaches me In the same mall wlth a note from a dlstlngulshed crltlc, together wlth an enclosure. That enclosure lS a mlmeographed Sollcltatlon from a M1SS Plnson, who lS worklng for her doctorate In Maryland, and wrltlng now under the ausplces of the Maryland State Department of Educatlon. After read1ng the letter, and the enclosure--a questlonalre, wlth ltS own coverlng letter from, no less, the Commlssloner of the Board of Educat1on, a Dr. Knorr--the professor scratched out a note, put lt In the t;tlvelope, and returned It to the Department of EducatlOn. He wrote, "ThlS lS obscene." The coverlng letter from the Commlssloner explalns that M1SS P1nson's questlOnalre "can be useful to hlgher educatlOn lnstltutlons In the conduct of self-studles when any new euucatlonal dlrectlons are belng consldered and determlnlng the extent to WhlCh career educatlon lS currently belng lnfused In hlgher educatlon curnculum In the state." Read that sentence a half-dozen tlmes. Its meanlng you wlll flnally descry, In the same way that, peerlng over the brldge and starlng lntently, Columbus flnally descrled the New World. But thlS lsn't the Commlssloner of Educatlon of Byelorussla, endeavorlng to practice hlS Engllsh, ThlS lS the man who tells the people of and ,0\'1 to educate all those wretched chlldren! The best lS yet to be. The questlonalre of M1SS Plnson lS headed "StllliUlus Statement." Then there are questlons, followed by numbered cholces we are supposed to reorder, to slgnlfy the lmportance we attach to each one In applYlng to the governlng ques tlOn. Here lS the flrst questlOn: "When a college or conslders changes regulred by new educatlonal prlorltles, that In stltutlon's admlnlstratlve leadershlp wlll tend to be posltlvely lnfluenced lf the source of that pnonty lS: •••• " Now that lS baffllng enough, But among the numbered responses are."l.Representatlve of served constltuency." "3. The needs assessment conducted by 'appropnate' agency or lndlvlduals"; and "5. Socletal, communlty needs." The very next questlOn lS "Admlnlstratlve leadershlp wlll tend to be nega t 1 ve 1 y 1 nfl uenced 1 f ute source of proposed change 1 s: •• " And you are perml t ted to check off.

Mark my words, the educatlonal bureaucracy In the Unlted States lS the genulne Flfth Column of self-government. If one of those spooks eve r becomes Pres 1 dent, and B rezhnev hands us an u ltl matum, how would he under tand lf, over the hot llne, the answer came back from Presldent I' ,Jrr "Please document whether your lnfluence lS representatlve of served constltuency." But then maybe we ought to welcome the bombs, lf that day comes; and start all over agaln, after all the records, reports, doctoral dlsseratatlons, treatlses, research studles, on how to mlseducate a generatlon are flnally destroyed.

Sald Chlao, "I belleve, Mr. Secretary, you wlll flnd the slgnlflcance of the Chlnese qarden lS ltS utlllzatlon, through the teachlngs of Chalrman Mao and Marx, Engels, Lenlr and Stalln, In lnstructlng the broad mass of the proletarlat In the wlcked pre-revolutlonary bourgeols penod." Klsslnger shook hlS head. "ilo, the slgnlflCanCe of the classlcal Chlnese garden lS ltS concentratlOn of so much lntelllgence In so small an area," said K1SSl nger. Chlao made a mock grlmace of defeat. Klsslnger turned to the reporters and sald, "and don't glVe me any more of your stupld Jokes about thlS Peklng trlp belng Davld's bar mitzvah present. I'm s aVl ng that for the Saudl s!" On a plantatlon In Martlnlque In 1974, Ford, French Presldent Valery Glscard d'Estalng, and Klsslnger went sWlmmlng In a pool. Klsslnger dog-paddled, Two Secret Servlce detall chlefs, D1Ck Kelser of the Whlte House and D1Ck Cantwell of the State Depart ment, watched. "A Secretary of State dog-paddllng!

"Look," sald Kelser, "now he's dog-paddllng underwater." "No," sald Cantwell, "he's drownlng." Klsslnger's head popped up at the two chlef bodyguards' end of the pool. He shook water from hlS head and sald, "I asked Walter (one of hlS favorlte Secret Servlce agents) what would happen lf they tned to kldnap me. And sald, 'Don't worry, Mr. Secretary, we won't 1 et them take you all ve. '" Klsslnger dog-paddled away wlth a stralght face. He used humor to deflate. A New York publlsher gave a Washlngton cocktall party to celebrate correspondents Marvln and Bernard Ka 1 b wn tl ng a book tl tIed "Kl SS 1 nger" and was overJ oyed to see Klsslnger come through the door. Rushlng up, the publlsher made coolng nOlses and asked lf Klsslnger had read the book. "No," he replled, "but I llke the tltle." He used Wlt to dodge reporters' questlons. Bumplng lnto K1S slnger In a Whlte House hallway durlng the Angola crlS1S of 1975, a reporter sald, "Mr. Secretary, what about Angola?" "Ann Gola," Klsslnger replled. "I don't thlnk I ever dated her. " On a plane durlng a 1974 Mlddle East dlplomatlc shuttle, a Secret Servlce rlfle accldentally flred, the bullet grazlng the forehead of Walter, Klsslnger's favorlte Secret Servlce agent. Assured Walter was not serlously hurt, Klsslnger leaned over the prone agent and sald, "Walter! Why dldn't you tell me you wanted off the detall." Back In Washlngton, Klsslnger went to a Watergate apartment dlnner, A fellow guest nodded toward the doorway, where Walter stood, a oandaqe on hlS forehead. "Henry, 1 s that the one who ••• ?" as ked the gues t. "Yes," sald Klsslnger. "I am the only person In the world who would have as a bodyguard a man who, when he decldes to shoot hlmself at a dlstance of SlX lnches, mlsses," Klsslnger used Wlt and worse In deallDq wlth the devoted band that made up "my ternfled staff." On a plane, seated between two senlor U.S. dlplomats, Klsslnger sat llstenlng to broadcastpr D1Ck Valerlanl talk about a racehorse reporters had bought and named "Henry The K." Klsslnger, bored, munched pretzels. "I-Jell," sald Valenanl, "thlS mlght lnterest you. The horse lS belng tralned In Vlrglnla by a former U.S. Forelgn Servlce offlcer."

"for Sonnenfeldt lS there lS Washlngton." A reporter then asked how often he was telephoned for lnstructlons by State Department Counselor Helmut Sonnenfeldt. "Sonnenfeldt telephone me? Never!" sald Klsslnger. "I telephone hlm three tlmes a day to flnd out what he's dOlng back In the State Department. But I know what he's dOlng. When I'm away, Sonnenfeldt comes lnto my offlce. He feels the carpet. He feels the curtaln. He tnes out my chal r and feels my desk. He tnes out my desk pen." After a pause he put on a serlOUS expresslon and then sald laughlng, "You must watch Sonnenfeldt very closely because he lS a German Jew."


I PAGE 4 Chapel Medley by ANITA RIDINGS The account of some of the Chrlstmas activities by Kwajalein Chapel groups might well begin with the respect paid to the bringlng of the qospel to the Islands in December, 119 years aqo --for sharing with the Marshallese is what made Chrjstmas on Kwajaleln ln 1976 unlque for many persons. Rev. Buck gave special emphasls to this annlversary ln messages to the congregation in serVlces in early December. The Catholics paid speclal trlbute to Blessed Among Women by Masses beginnlng wlth the Feast of the Immaculate' Conception on December B. Rev. Buck's impression of Christmas in the Marshalls was given on December 10th at the Communlty Center. He showed the audience how to read a carol as the Marshallese do and demonstrated thelr custom of slnging origlnal carols, throwing gifts and, ln general, he stressed the pleasure they have in preparlng and executlng elaborate themes from the Bible. Chlldren presented the Chrlstwas Program December 12th at the Protestant Servlces under the direction of Mrs. Roberta DeWitt. The Annual Chrlstmas Cholr Concert, composed of both Protes tants and Catholics was given December 19th under the directlon of Mrs. Barbara West. Other carols heard around the island came from the VOlces of the Senlor Hlgh Chapel Youth Fellowship who caroled from the back of flatbed trucks on the night of December 23rd. The Junior Hlgh Chapel Youth Fellowship Kaleidoscope had a party at Emon Beach wlth then sponsor, Kenna Uest also on the night of the 23rd. Overflow crowds gathered for both the Protestant service of the Candles and Carols conducted by Rev. Buck and for the Mldnight Mass celebrated by Fr. Fltzqerald. The Protestant service had special mUS1C by the adult choir from the Unlted Church of Christ on Ebeye. Many Kwajalein residents spent part of Christmas Day on Ebeye attending the festivities of the Marshallese. Their celebration of Christmas made lt a time of special memories of Christmas for those who watched. Those lovely Christmas decoratlons in the Island Memorial Chapel were arraqned by Corky Balser, Pauline Bonenfant and Maurine Sandkuhler ably assisted by men of the Kwajalein Fire Department who assisted wlth ladders and helped make all of the electrical connectlons safe. Kwa;alein Boole Discussion Group At the recent meeting of the Kwajalein Book Discussion Group, Ursula Le GUlnls LEFT HAND OF DARKNESS was dlscussed. This book is regarded as SClence flctlon, as ltS story presents political, sociologlcal and personal constructs, interactlons and adventures on a hypothetlcal planet named Wlnter. The inhabi tants are hermaphrodltlcal, and Le Guin explores the ways this affects thelr personalltles and soclal/polltlcal structures.

WEDNESDAY, 5, 1977 Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers You asked teenage gnls to wr1te and tell you the "llnes" that were used on them by boys who were after sex. What a great ldea! 11m no teenager (11m 22) but I thought you m1ght be lnterested In the "llnes" p1tched at me over the past several years. Some of them were hllarlous, others down nght rathetlc. The adolescent, non-serlOUS passes started In the seventh grade wlth games llke Spln-the-Bottle and Post Offlce. Then there were those unforgettable Scavenger Hunts--wlth k1ds palr1ng off and wanderlng around In search of plnk t01let paper and vegetable Sleves. The ser10US, for-real llnes started In the nl nth grade. Ivly favon te boyfn end was best pals wlth a guy who dated the most popular glrl In school. He told me she "dld It.'' That, of course, meant ''It'' was the th1ng to do. When he d1scovered that strategy dldn't work, he promptly to, "If you loved me you'd prove It.'' I told hlm 1f he loved ME he wouldn't make such demands on me. F1nally he became adamant and sald I HAD to glve In because my stubbornness was 10us1ng up hlS matur1ng process and glvlng hlm plmples. When I told hlm to buzz off he threatened to k1ll hlmself. The threat turned out to be as rldlculous as the rest of h1S garbage, Then I started to date a fellow who was extremely conslderate of my feellngs but also very affect1onate. When I made my posltlon clear, he dldn't pester me about sex. We necked a llttle, but he never trled to step beyond the boundarles I set up. After a few bl1ssful months, Mr. Well-Behaved In formed me I was gOlng to have to share hlm wlth "W1nnle" (a hot number) who wrote notes WhlCh made lt plaln she was ready, wllllng and able to "fulflll" hlm. Off I went to college --stlll lntact but gettlng curlouser and curlouser. The second day on campus I met Claude. He told me on our second date that dozens of glrls had followed h1m from the sWlmmlng pool to h1S apartment, lustlng after hlS bod. Others were so aggresslve (and hungry) they knocked on hlS door w1th bottles they couldn't open, dresses that needed to be zlpped, furn1ture they couldn't move --anythlng to get past hlS front door and hopefully lnto h1S bed. Then there was Horace, two years my JunlOr, who wanted me to "teach h1m" .•• and Bern1e, who was dY1ng to know 1f a pol1t1cal SClence major had anythlng that worked be sldes her braln. And Orval, a rellglous nut who had been lnstructed by God to "show me the way." Funny thlng, nothlng wore down my re slstance. The llnes Just made me run In the other dlrect1on. No glrl wants to feel used, fooled or easy, When I f1nally sald yes, lt was because a sens1tlve and car1ng young man made me feel valuable as a human be1ng. He appl1ed no glmm1cks, no hogwash, no sales talk. I made up my own mlnd. It was beautlful, 11m glad I wa1ted.--Happy Past And Proud To Tell It Happy: I hope young out who fl.eacU YOM wdf pay cto4e Ah! The mOfl.e change--:the mOfl.e :they :the Dear Ann Landers' I would llke to say a few words to the guy who slgned hlmself "Fleeced." He complalned about offlce col lect10ns for brldes, new bab1es, ret1rement partles, get-well flowers, etc. I know thlS type of cheapskate. I work wlth a few. Just let someone come around wlth a punchboard, a football pool, a hot tlP on a horse or a chance on a lottery tlcket and Blg Mouth 1S the flrst One to put hlS hand 1 n tll s pocket. I work 1n a large offlce. When I was 1n the hosp1tal last spr1ng, the gang sent a beautlful bouquet of flowers. I wlll never forget the thr1ll when the nurse brought them lnto my room. When I read the card I almost bawled. I never complalned about chlpp1ng In for offlce remembrances, but after havlng been the reclplent once lt gave me a whole new understand1ngo Please prlnt thlS, Ann, --Ada.

At present, Puerto Rl co 1 sa" free as 50clated state" of the Unlted States, but many are not sure what that means and many more do not flnd that status entlrely sat1sfYlng. There are three sldes to the debate ln Puerto Rlco--one that favors statehood, another favrr1ng a separate ldentlty for Puerto R1CO but In assoclatlon wlth the Un1ted States, and a thlrd that seeks complete lndependence of one form or another. None of the groups has been able to score a declslve vlctory at the polls over the other two, resultlng In the ma1ntenance of the status quo. The earllest lnhabltants of the Carib bean lsland--the fourth largest after Cuba, Hlspan10la and Jamlca--were the Arawak In d1ans. Of the European Color.lzers, the Spanlards came flrst. One of Christopher Columbus' lleutenants, Ponce de Leon, founded San Juan 1n 1509 as the second Clty In the Western Hemlsphere after Santo Domlngo, the cap1tal of the Domln1can Republlc, Attempts by the Dutch and Engllsh to take the 1sland away from the Span1ards fa11ed and Puerto R1CO settled down lnto almost four centurles of sleepy colonlal rule from 11adnd. The only attempt at In dependence In 1868 fa1led when the plot was betrayed to the Spanlsh colon1al armles. The Spanlsh-Amer1can War at the end of the 19th century gave Puerto R1CO to the Unlted States along wlth Cuba and the Phll-1pp1nes. At flrst, the lsland was ruled by Amer1can mllltary governors but In the 1940's Washlngton appo1nted the flrst natlve Puerto Rlcan governor. In 1917, Puerto Rlcans automatlcally became Amer1can cltlzens mak1ng them llable for the mllltary draft, but also enabllng them to travel back and forth to the Amerlcan ma1nland. Although m1gratlon was a blg factor at one tlme, many have come back and the populatlon lS now more or less stable at more than 3 mllllon. Puerto Rlcans are mostly of m1xed descent, wlth some Indlan traces, more Spanlsh, some European and some black characterlstlCS. Spanlsh wlth a Carlbbean ac cent 15 the nat1ve language but many people speak Engl1sh. Self-government came In 1948 wlth the flrst elected governor of the lsland, LU1S Munoz Marln, who was contlnuously re-elected for consecutlve four-year terms untll 1964. Durlng hlS admlnlstratlon, Puerto R1CO re cel ved 1 ts status of "free assoclated state" and ltS own constltutlon, WhlCh stlpulated that any change In status must be approved by referendum. Under the present status, Puerto Rlcans have a permanent but non-votlng delegate In the House of Representatlves. Puerto Rlcans cannot vote In presldentlal electlons but both the Republ1cans and the Democrats as slgn delegates to Puerto R1CO at thelr nomlnatlng conventlons. The latest pleblsc1te held In 1967 en dorsed commonwealth status by a vote of 425,091 agalnst and 273,315 for statehood.
