Students Discuss
Liberty and Habit
"Although I feel the discussions
are a little slower than they were
last year, I expect it will pick up
in the next few meetings. I be
lieve the student leaders and the
guest speakers after Christmas
will liven things up," said Mrs.
Peggy Zwick when asked about
the Humanities Seminar meetings.
Two chapters of On Liberty by
John Stuart Mills were read by
the students prior to the Novem
ber 4 meeting at the home of
Mary BroStad. At this meeting
the students discussed "What Is
Liberty?" Using Mills' ideas on
liberty the Seminar group talked
about whether Communists should
be allowed to teach in public
schools and whether dress and
dancing regulations should be
imposed on high school students.
Various aspects of the racial
problem in America were also dis
cussed including the Civil Rights
legislation now before Congress.
"What Is Habit?" was discussed
at the November 11 meeting, held
at the home of Scot Roberts.
Readings from Principles of Psy
chology by William James, On
the Nature of Things by Lucre
tius, and verses from Proverbs
and Jeremiah provided the basis
for discussion.

Lack of Sight No
Handicap for Pam
Is being without sight handi
cap? Not according to Pam Lewis,
a blind student attending Ash
land High.
Pam, a sophomore, is taking
geometry, choir, speech, English,
Spanish, and biology. Her books,
with the exception of English,
are written in braille and are
sent to her from the Oregon
Institute for the Blind. She uses
a braille writer and a typewriter
when she does her homework.
She uses a small portable tape
recorder which she takes to her
classes to record lectures and
long notes. She takes the tapes
home and transcribes notes with
her braille writer.
Pam is also enrolled in a
seminar class. She studies voice
and piano. Her ambition is to
sing or act.
Pam was enrolled in the Wash
ington State School for the Blind
the age of five. Later, she
went to the Oregon School for
the Blind. All children attending
these schools are required to go
to a public school when they
reach high school age. Pam came
to Ashland because she had lived
here before.
Pam has a "reader", a person
employed by the state to read
any lessons, books, or stories
Pam's biggest problem in get
ting her assignment is getting
information. She had very little
trouble getting around school.
Her main problem is running into
people in crowded halls.

To add that "tough" appearance
Roland has put reversed wheels
on the rear and also reversed the
shackles on his rear springs to
raise the rear end. The lowered
front end really sets it on a rake
and Rol says the bouncy ride
adds a little fun to riding.
This is one of the nicer cars
seen around school and Roland
plans to leave this car in its
present stock appearance as its
sharp looks need little improve
ment. Each day would hardly seem
complete without seeing Roland
buzzing around hustling the girls.
