"These findings are really exciting because I feel this kind of research could have an impact on public diplomacy by opening the lines of international com- munication," Fullerton said. "I think the evidence suggests that advertising can and' should be one of many tools that America uses in a long-range plan to build friendships and alliances throughout the world." Fullerton said a focused, con- centrated, consistent ad cam- paign could help set the stage for America's diplomatic efforts by telling America's story to the world.

Last week Stillwater lost a per- son with, whom a lot of locals spent at least a semester Russell Martin. Some called him "Bugs" because he was the high school biology teacher for about a gabillion years. He was there when Stillwater High School's name was changed to C. E. Donart and pr0ba-: bly when it was changed back to Stillwater High School. Like all those other peo- ple, I had his biology class, only I took it during the summer so I could do other things during the regular year. It was during the experimental teaching peri- od, when one could take regular math courses or a new system called SMSG (school mathematics study group). I don't remember the biology equivalent to that (BSCS maybe?) but that was the course Mr. Martin was trying to drive into our hormone and vaca- tion impaired brains that sum- m~'. My folks had just purchased a house right next door to the Martins. This is a deadly combi- nation having your only teacher living right around the corner from you and summer- time calling.
