Be- fore her marriage, she spent many summers in the western part of the United States where she worked in summer resorts such as Yellow Stone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, the Seattle's World Fair, and the Knotsberry Farm. She reports that she has visited other interesting places in Can= ada and Mexico. In speaking of Paxton's stu- dent body, Mrs. Treadwell com- mented that it is one of the finest groups anywhere. She en- joys working with the coopera- tive faculty and especially likes the Paxton girls because they are outstanding in P.E. "Their interests and attitudes are ex- ceptional," she commented. Mrs. Treadwell has taught at Paxten for the past five years. Prior to her arrival at Paxton she taught at Walton High School. In addition to teaching the girls' physical education courses she also teaches the eighth grade social studies classes. Her benign and obliging per- sonality, coupled with her effer- vescent good humor make Mrs. Jaine Treadwell a most valuable member of the faculty and director of the Girls' Physical Education program. . MRS. ALLENDER, STUDENTS AMDTHEODORE Mrs. Sandra Allender, Pax- ton's newest faculty member, is involved in teaching the first and second graders a number of necessary skills. Among the methods she uses is, what she calls, a thinking machine named Theodore. Theodore is a tiny cousin of the big computer and is only as complicated as the teacher. The children ask Theodore questions concecning science and math. They draw pictures and write stories which are ~iven to him to read. He reads all day and at night when no- body is around to disturb him. He also answers the many let- ters the children write to him. He answers them on long sheets of paper. The children think that Theodore is quite ugly, but they also think of him as quite a friend. On Friday, March 20, stu- dents in grades 7-12were made aware that certain goals and needs may be met in other places in addition to attending college. Mr. Gerald Brown, Guidance Counselor at Mac- Arthur Technical Institute in Opp, spoke to the student body and showed slides of the six- teen areas of technical and industrial service work which are available at the school. Mr. Brown explained the school's program of instruction for each course. Juniors and seniors were interviewed by Mr. Brown following the program. Mrs. Leigh Rudacille, Pax- ton's Guidance Counselor, pre- sented Mr. Brown and was in charge of the arrangements and the program. BIOLOGY CLASSES VIEW NATURE FILM Fighting locusts in the wilds of Africa, spraying mosquitos in swamp-lnfested Jungles, and watching lady bugs devour mealy bugs, were just a few of the exciting scenes in the film "Rival World", produced by the Shell Oil Company. The film also discussed the role of the insect as a vector or carrier of disease. Examples given included, the Tsetse fly, which causes African sleeping sickness, the Lea Lea worm, which causes blindness, the cu- lex mosquito, which causes ela- phantiasis, an enlargening of parts of the body such as legs and arms, and the Anopheles mosquito, which produces malaria, perhaps the worst of all insect=caused diseases. The film was very informa- tive and was enjoyed by the Bio- logy students, under the in- struction of Mr. Kelley Thomas.

SOCIAL STUDIES CLASSES VIEWS FILM ',The Paper Forest" was viewed by Mrs. Smith's Civics and American History students last Wednesday.
