PHONE 725-5839 k Dr. RtCI d F. Neviile, Assist- ant to the Dem in the College of tion, unlv ,Mary- fund, has been selected to serve as a constrlta t to the Division of Educatkm at Shepherd College. The faculty ia the Division of Education is developing a master syllabus which will clearly out- line the teacher education pro- gram at Shepherd. A number of changes are contemplated in order to up-date the teacher pre- paration program. One of the major changes will ,be the inclus- ion of educational media train- ing for all prospective teachers graduating from Shepherd. The division has already had a dem- onstration of porta~ble television equipment which can be taken into the public schools for taping student teachers at work, and then used in diagnosing areas in which the student teacher might w~rk on in order to improve his teachir~g. In accepting the ,invitation to work with Shepherd, Dr. Neville stated he thought the exchange of ideas among the different profess ors would be helpful to him since the University of Maryland would be undertaking the same type of project in the very near future. /: i' anta Claus is here!

(Elsie) Hamstead) The parents hasten to and fro; The children walk on tippey-toe; And Santa's sled is set to go. Is this Christmas ? A gift list to reach from here to there; Preseat piled high in a chair; And wrappings scattered everywhere. Is this Christmas? With unconcern for fellowman; With conflict and crime on every hand, As unrest prevails throughout the land. Can this be Christmas? No --- WAIT ---- We too, can hear the troubled prayer; Nor be content until we share, That others know they are our care. Let this be Christmas. Give us the day to make a sta ; And of ourselves to give a pa *; A deed of love, kept in our hea ts. Let us keep Christmas. Carr m U. S. Army, Vietnam.
