In case 01 change Mission Teachers’ Institute Held at Cuba, N.M. Brethren Navajo Mission, Cuba, New Mexico, was the scene of the sixteenth semi-annual Mission Teachers' Institute on Saturday, April 15. Seventy teachers from some twenty Protestant mission schools in Arizona and New Mexico were in attendance. As our guests were five teachers from Cuba Ele mentary School, Cuba, New Mexico. Mr. Dillon Platero, Chairman, Education Committee, Navajo Tribe, was the featured speaker of the morning session. He touched on different subjects, giving an insight into Navajo Tribal goals, namely, compulsory education planned to begin next year; some facts con cerning Trust Fund for education; plans for a community college; or ientation program for new teachers and a real concern for Navajo chil dren to be educated so as to be able to compete with others of their same level of schooling. He ex pressed the Na vajo Tribe’s sincere appreciation of mission schools and their accomplishments for the Navajo people through the years, being the first schools established for Navajo children. A delicious dinner was served by the staff of the host mission. Dr. Walter Nelson, pastor of Grace Church, Albuquerque, New Mexico, opened the afternoon ses sion with a fine- devotion on He brews, chapter one. Mrs. Gladys Zook from the Navajo Gospel Mis sion, Oraibi, Arizona and Miss Marie Montag, Ga nado Mission, Ganado, Arizona, gave an excellent presentation of many usable ideas for an effective art program. Both stressed the importance of encour aging self-expression through art. Mr. Arthur Dodd, Principal, Gan ado Mission, led the High School teachers in an hour discussion of mutual problems. Through the courtesy of the American Crayon Company a representative sample of many art items was on display. The next meeting is scheduled for October 14, 1961 at Immanuel Mission, Shiprock, New Mexico. ... • v.v. "A'. .v ■ Date Set forGaliup McKinley County School Bond Election May 23 was officially approved by the Gallup McKinley county board of education as the date of a special school bond election that will bring the question of a $1 mil lion school construction program to the public. The program calls for building a new Washington elementary school, and various additions and improvements to another half doz en schools. Clay Fultz, Gallup insurance man, explained to the board a new program of insurance (Public In stitution Property Policy), which if adopted by the school system, would result in a savings of money. Also accepted by the board was a plan to set up an inventory rec ords system as proposed by the auditing firm of Caeser Sebastian. Russell Thorwaldsen, who has been compiling the school audit, was recommended to do the work. Bids for digging of a well at the Ramah school will be asked. The well will augment the water supply. A voluntary increase in water rates by the school system will be made at Ambrosia Lake due to increased facilities and a higher use of water. Also received, with an (advised) notation that stipulated that library facilities at the high school were not up to association stand a rds, was a North Central Association accreditation. The board discussed plans for bringing this portion of the school up to the specifications of the association. The board also approved plans for revising the junior high school curriculum to put a seventh grade science course into affect in the 1961-62 school year withtheprog ram on an elective basis. J i / *?• \ Shelter Boosts Livestock Output Agricultural engineers at South Dakota’s State College of Agricul ture have recently designed a prac tical 12 feet by 12 feet shade shel ter to protect livestock during summer months. Lightweight, inexpensive, and easy to store, move, and construct, the steel shelter covered with galvanized steel sheets is expected to meet the requirements of farmers who raise sheep, hogs, poultry and other live stock. The Committee of Galvanized Sheet Producers said the shelter is constructed by driving four steel tee fence posts into the ground at the corners of an eight feet by nine feet rectangle. These posts slant slightly outward, so that the tops are six inches off the vertical. Two twelve foot 2 by 4*s are then fas tened with hook bolts to the eight foot-apart post' tops. Twelve-foot lengths of light gauge corrugated galvanized steel sheets are then laid across the tops of the 2 by 4’s and secured with lead-headed screwdrive roofing nails. Four-loops of #9 wire are now looped around the 2 by 4’s at equal intervals, so as to connect the two wooden stringers. Uniform twist ing of the four loops will “draw them up” until the four tee posts are vertical and the roof is arched to a height of about one foot in the center. The arch adds rigidity. The galvanized steel sheets add strength, economy and corrosion resistance. Relocation of the shelter is ea sy. Loosening the four hook bcltsper mits removal of the entire roof section; tee posts are pulled up ami driven in elsewhere. For winter storage, removal of the four tight ening wire loops will permit flat storage. A coat of white paint on the out side surface will further reduce the temperature under the shelter. Watt An Anesthetic? Electrical charges were used recently to anesthetize patients for two recent major opera tions. Doctors say the results were “most gratifying.” More tests are planned.
