Rejected By Bank Voters
Voters gave a decided jarring
to the proposal of setting a minimum
guaranteed income for
every United States family in
the latest Meadow Brook National
Bank Community Opinion
Poll. A majority of the voters
rejected the idea.
Voters in South Farmingdale
lined up this way on the question:
29.9% in favor of a minimum
guaranteed income, 68.6%
against and 1.5% undecided, according
to John McGrath, manager
of the Bank's South Farmingdale
South Farmingdale voters,
however, gave decisive support
to two other proposals: the licensing
of power boat operators
on Long Island waters and legislation
to deal more effectively
with water pollution.
On the question of licensing
power boat operators, 71.3% said
" yes", 26.2% answered " no",

School Board Meeting
( Continued from Page 6)
educational goals of the school
district as outlined in the statement
of philosophy developed by
the administration and accepted
by the school board. The principles
of this philosophy are
based on the individual as a u-nique
person, on developing this
person's abilities particularly
with an eye to making him a
better citizen and one who knows
how to contribute in mutual planning
and promoting the general
welfare. The English Department
is in a particularly good
position to offer the opportunities
and materials which will
best teach an appreciation of our
cultural heritage and familiarity
with all the arts, and develop
an inquiring mind and a receptive
attitude toward learning. Also
by the nature of the literature
which it teaches, the English
Department can help the student
arrive at a code of morality
and a set of values needed for
self respect and respect for
Being broad in scope, the English
Department curriculum can
embrace more aspects of human
endeavor and can spend time
developing the widely varying
capacities of our future citizens.
The particular areas on which we
can concentrate are: Reading
skills, Literature, Composition,
Speech, Listening, Grammar,
Vocabulary, Semantics, andSpel-ling.
Reading skills are developed
through special ungraded English
classes where students are
grouped according to their reading
grade levels, and where students
are given a special curriculum
designed to meet individual
needs, including remedial
and ordinary problems. This
part of the English program is
taught by teachers who have had
special training in this area.
Improving reading skills naturally
leads to a better understanding
Literature taught in the high
school is almost always of such
a nature as fits our two- fold
purpose: to teach students to think
and to help them establish a
code of moral values. Logical
thinking is developed through
critical literary analysis of stories,
essays, poems, and plays.
The material becomes more difficult
with each succeeding year.
By the end of the twelfth year
mid- term, we will have covered
literature all the way up to college
freshman level. We hope
to have developed the critical
faculties and to have familiarized
our students with the best
known works of our literary and
cultural heritage. Almost always,
the literature we study
helps students to learn about the
moral values our country believes
Composition, grammar, and
vocabulary are correlated with
whatever stories or poems are
being taught. Students write essays
relating to or comparing
literary selections. The vocabulary
consists of words learned
in their context in these stories
and poems. The essays are
graded on two levels. One grade
is for thought and content 4 The
other grade is for grammar,
spelling, organization and mechanical
factors. As the teacher
grades the papers, he reviews
the skills of good writing. Teachers
review grammatical principles
in every year of high
school, but we devote one entire
semester, in grade ten, to ex-c
l u s i v e concentration on
fundamentals of grammar, usage
and good composition writingand
also speaking, since good speech
is as essential as good writing.
We feel that a II students should be
given as much training as possible
in speaking and listening
because we live in an age where
oral communication is a vital
part of our lives. Fveryone living
in a democracy needs to be
able to think, to read, to listen
and to express himself.
