Bread Milk "There's not enough of theml" complained Glen Grader. "Their male ego and they think they're always right[" claims Miss Biggs. "What's wrong with the opposite sex?" questions Tommy Rice. These were a few of comments made when P-T students were asked, "What bugs you about the opposite sex. Generally, boys object to: girls who act too good, two-timing girls, slouchi- ness, girls who talk too much, girls that flirt too much, and girls who gripe. Mostly girls were found to object to: boys who smell, have dirty, long hair, boys who are conceited, boys who cuss to make an impression, boys that are inconsiderate and immature. Some boys were bugged by: girls who whisper, wear too much make-up, girls who smoke, girls who are always sitting on guys laps and desks, girls who primp, wear dresses too long, girls who stare, (guess who) when a guy is going with a girl, chase him, and girls who go out for boy's sports when they aren't capable of it. Keith Disney is bugged by girls who say they want equal rights but then get away with a lot of things men can't. Mr. Strain says, "That they have the misconception Troy Cundiff that they are equal to men." Other things girls object to are: boys who expect girls to be affectionate in public, guys that are unmannerly, boys who beat around-the- bush, boys who are in a hurry to leave, boys who use girls, boys who are fresh, boys who expect too much out of girls, the way they dress, and not enough of them are worth the effort. Steve Allen commented, "I am really bugged by girls who don*t wear hose when they have ugly legs!" Mr. Lauener is bugged by girls who try to act like men. "I don't want a girl beating me to the door to open it." It appears that men seem to be afraid of women's actually proving that they are equal to men.

Darls Energy Show will visit here Energy doesn't just pop out of the walls. But where does it come from? What is it? How do we use it? Why is it getting expensive? This is the subject of a special traveling program for high school and civic clubs called "Energy Today and Tomor- row" which comes to Perkins-Tryon High School on April 22, 1977, grade school assembly at 10 a.m.; high school assembly at 11 a.m. The program, developed and operated by Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) is sponsored by the Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company. It features an array of unusual electronic teaching devices, like an animated garbage can that demon- strates the value of recycl- ing, a bicycle that generates electricity, an electrostatic precipitator to control pollu- tion, and an electric motor- cycle. The teacher--demonstra- tor, Don White, uses this equipment and other devices to describe the sources of our energy today, methods we use for power generation, possible future sources of energy, and the social, economic and environmental choices we face when we use energy. One of the issues discussed is conservation. Mr. White, who holds a bachelor's degree in Biology from Carson Newman Coll- ege, has had special-training from ORAU for teaching about the complex subject of energy. "Energy Today and Tom- orrow" visits a different high school in Oklahoma each school day. The demonstra- tion is presented in an assembly and is then followed by special class- room sessions adapted to the size, interests, and grade level of the students. These sessions are designed to stimulate both science and nonscience students into thinking about the enrgy crisis and the impact of science and technology on modern life. A similar demonstration/discussion program is available to civic groups on request. The "Energy Today and Tomorrow" program sche- duled here is one of 12 similar units appearing daily at high schools in different parts of the country. They are part of an extensive traveling exhibits program designed to bring the public a greater understanding of energy and its uses. They are modeled after an older ORAU program, "This Ato- mic World," which has been presented in high schools throughout the nation since 1955. ORAU is a nonprofi t education and consortium of 45 colleges and One of its major to operate the U.S. Research and Administration's exhibits programs.
