2 - The Arlin~on TIMES - Wed., June 3, 1981 (o ) ' reRs " Mo,. ,.,,=,o,,. " N. glen/ To the Editor: 1 would like to reply to Doug Stewart's letter in last week's TIMES about the new Arlinglon Library. " The new building was designed to be energy conserving, making use of earth berms for insulation. It is on one floor to allow easy access to the handicapped, who had a very difficult time with the old facility, One floor also means that fewer staff arc necessary, another money saving improvement, if the library appears vacant, there are several reasons. There is more space for books, and vacant shelves are gradually being filled as more titles arrive from the Regional Library. There arc plans to carpet the children's section in the near future and eventually the entire library, as funds from private contributions become available. i hope Mr. Stewart will be patient. The library staff did an heroic job in moving and libraries aren't built in a day. The new conference hall allows a private space for meetings and children's programs, some- thing not available at the old location. I hope Mr. Stewart, his family, and all interested community members will come to the open house Sunday. June 28. from 2 to 4 p.m. It is an opportunity to ask questions, make suggestions and become fiuniliar with the expanded and improved services available to all in our new library. Sincerely, Joan Newcomb To the editor: It has been a pleasure for the last 16 years to serve the Arlington community in the library and watch the children grow along with a fast developing community. The old library designed by friend Ivan Meyer will always be a sentimental part of my past. Growing so large that Kesling Hall had to be made into a children's library made work supervision difficult with two floors to supervise. Kids smoking and using drugs in the bathrooms has been a nund bender. Due to an accident while lifting boxes of books in the moving process, a herniated disc and internal injuries make it advisable to tender my resignation, recuperate, and hopefully when my husband retires, we can take a few more of those trips, maybe revisit the area of his war combat zone in the South Pacific and go back to my dear old Norway, Personally 1 want to thank Jim Jungers for the two beautiful tables he donated, to Jansen brothers for the display case and to the local men who have built almost at cost some of the library furnishings. There have been many gripes about the new library, yet some praises too. Through HUD money and the sale of the old building, our new library is solvent. If there had been a little more listening, however, such as deleting the huge bi-fold doors in the small meeting room, a lower domed ceiling and less ornate light fixtures we could have carpeted the floor to give more silence to the reader seeking a place of solace: I want to thank all the library board members who have worked with me over the years, the staff and special thanks to Mac Schoenrock at Sno-lsle Regional Library, head supervisor of libraries. -Irene Donnelson Morn about M. Lord ...... L between the book cover is Lord's biggest delight. "1 like to see students reading," she said. As soon as they learn and like to read. th~ become bette~: students, she added. A small minority of the middle school students never enjoy reading, she admits, Th9 books available to the students are "'very carefully" selected by Lord. Students are more sophisticated today and desire realism, but parents disapprove of some realism, she said. To make sure a book doesn't disgruntle parents Lord either reviews the book, reads a review on the book or selects it from the state book guide. This way her decision is well supported. Lord believes with the opening of the new middle school this September, it's a good time to retire, "'New school, new media center and new librarian," Lord said, the school district will have next year. The district is in the process of finding a new librarian. Lord said it'll be a hard job for the selectee to move and orgdnize the new media center, but still believes it's the right time to retire. Pressure from her husband. Millard, also affected her decision. He's eager to start traveling after she retires. The couple plans to visit the historical sites along the east coast, Lord attended Western Washington State College (now Western Washington University) but graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in English literature. After graduating she taught two years at Peshastin, Snohomish, her home town Bellirigham. Pullman and Arlington be- fore becoming a librarian. The Lords moved to Arlington because her husband was hired as a shop teacher by the district and later became the'high school vice principal. After June both will be retired so traveling, bridge playing, golf and sleep- ing late can begin. TEAGUE'S RADIO & 'IN sales 8 Services r i required to take homemaking for two years and boys were forbidden to enroll during Ulery's first several years. After the 60s changed people's percep- tion of womens and mens roles, home- making classes opened to boys in the earlier 70s. Classes are cued today, but at first boys were in a segregated class. Uiery didn't mind. "It was great. Much better to have all boys than mixed." she said. The boys ignorance in cooking and sewing caused Ulery to teach them different. Instruction wasn't as in depth as the girls. Boys had little knowledge about sewing machines, "but were more fascinated about the machines than the girls. Boys enrolled in the homemaking classes were a novelty at first, drawing crowds at the windows and doorways to watch the males in operation. Ulery observed during the years with the all boys classes, they learned faster than the girls and cleaned up better too. Her explanation. "maybe they wanted to prove themselves." Today, girls out number the boys in the homemaking department. 80 percent to 20 percent. The homemaking curriculum is directed by the state education department, who stress six areas to be covered: child development, selecting and decorating a home. food~ clothing, family relationships and finance. One class, in each of the six areas, is held in each of the two semesters a year. She claims boys join the program to make food for their own consumption and is sorry there hasn't been more boys included in other classes like child development. in the school's homemaking sewing lab, Ulery has seen the fashions change such as the rise and fall of the dress hem line. Through it all she's tried to inject tips to help make each student a better home- maker. The Bishop method of sewing is one of her beliefs. The method was derived from the~garment industry, who was after short cuts to speed up production. Ulery's main goal for each student was to "'make them better homemakers because everyone is a homemaker." Entering the homemaking field was due to her enjoyment in sewing and cooking. "l started sewing in the seventh grade and never quit," she said. Her skill with the needle and sewing machine has paid off economically. She hasn't bought clothes in years. Ulery who says she traveled all her life. will undoubtedly continue traveling in the future. For people who don't know Ulery, she's the one who donates and drives the white convertible carrying a dignitary in the Arlington Fourth of J uly parade each year. v - i Danee/aize A summer session of dancersize will be offered at the Oso Community Center.

Humanistic Medleine "'If you would learn the secrets of nature, you must practice more humanity than others." Henry David Thoreau Hospitals have an image of being very technical. Machines, equipment, treat. ments and procedures are an essential part of patient care. But beyond the science of technology those in the health care field must follow Thoreau's advice and develop a more humanistic approach to medicine.
