Asthma camp offers experiences
The child with asthma, who signs up to
go to Camp Christmas Seal this summer,
can experience the opening up of a whole
new world, according to Emil Hardana,
M.D., assistant professor of medicine and
head of allergy division. University of
Oregon Health Sciences Center, who will
also be the camp's medical staff coordina­
subtly resented and one who considers
himself a cripple.
One of the most
valuable things the Camp Christmas Seal
experience can give this child is a feeling
of security, adventure and the knowledge
that there are others like him.
While at Camp Christmas Seal there
will be round the clock medical staff and
special dietary and recreational concerns,
the medical staff, according to Bardana.
will maintain a low and nonchalant profile
- much like "the battalion medical officer
in the Marine Corps." The medic will be
available to see that the child takes his
medications, to distribute band aids, as
needed, to teach the camper something
about his disease and, of course, to
function in emergency episodes. But not
to hover over.
Experience has shown, the doctor said,
that asthmatic children, in a camp situs-
tion, have very few problems. They learn
they can tolerate more than they or their
parents thought.
The pilot session of the asthmatic camp
will take children from nine through
thirteen with parental and doctor ap
proval. For information and registration

Helicopter pilot trains ROTC
An ex-U.S. Army helicopter pilot, who
will soon wear the silver U.S. Air Force
pilot wings, currently is training with the
Oregon Air National Guard in Portland.
John Sveta, an experienced pilot who
served in Vietnam and with over 2.500
flying hours to his credit, is one of fifteen
senior ROTC cadets from the University
of Portland who is participating in a
unique management training program
with the Oregon Air Guard.
The program, similar to one given at
the Air Force Academy to third year
Students, is being offered to the Univer­
sity of Portland's ROTC graduating se
aiors for the first time in cooperation
frith the 142nd Fighter Interceptor
Group. Oregon Air National Guard.
According to Captain Jim Pyle, Assis­
tant Professor of Aerospace Studies at
the University, “It's the first time that a
program of this magnitude has ever been
attempted in the northwest."

non commissioned officer on the job dur­
ing the managment field study. The
object is to acquaint the cadets with their
chosen Air Force career field or one that
is related. It also allows the student to
observe management practices in action,
similar to those studied in the classroom.
Each student is required to observe his
Air Guard counterpart at work for a
minimum of eight hours during April.
The soon-to-be commissioned pilot,
Svela, thinks the program is just what he
needs. “It's great to be around profes­
sionals and to get first hand information
on what to expect," he said.
Another participant. Cadet Sue Leas,
with an interest in the air-weather
service, remarked. "This has introduced
me to the technology and management
practices so necessary in the air-weather
field."
Upon graduation, the Portland-trained
ROTC cadets will be commissioned in the
U.S. Air Force.

The Oregon Lung Association's pilot
project camp for children with asthma
will be held August 22nd through the
29th at Camp Colton in Clackamas
County.
The prominent Portland allergist said
that the asthmatic child, by falling in
league with his peers, can come to know
and share here-to fore untried activities.
He can learn more about his disease and
how to cope with it himself. He'll learn,
he stressed, what he CAN do, instead of
what he can't. And, in so doing, he'll
probably have the time of his life.
In an interview with Dr. Bardana at
UOHSC, the nllergist painted a verbal
picture of the typical child with severe
asthma.

A new history sequence to examine
Western man’s impact on the Asian and
African continents starts next fall at
Portland Community College. Dr. Robert
Costi said the new classes will expose
three areas where Western contact has
been critical in the development of Asia
and Africa.
The three areas, Dr. Costi said, are
Western imperialism before the 20th
century, em phasis of 20th century
events, and the development of mili­
tarism.
One term transferable courses will be
offered sequentially, but Costi said they
need not be taken chronologically. The
courses are Era of Western Imperialism,
World in Crisis, and War and the Modern
World.
Dr. Costi, an Oregon City resident who
has taught at PCC for six years, explain
ed the significance of the new classes.
“We no longer can rely on oceans and
distances to separate the various conti­
nents. Advancements such as supersonic
transportation and international business
techniques have brought all portions of
the world much closer together. Today
we find American government and busi-
ness exchanges occurring in Asia and
Africa as often as in Europe."
"Moreover," Dr. Costi added, "Ameri­
can education has primarily focused on
exposing the culture of the United States
Dr. Costi indicated a need for Ameri­
cans to spend more time investigating the
emerging nations to be able to under
stand and deal with the people of these
countries. “The two continents have
recently gained a tremendous amount of
world attention. They possess rich and
varied cultures largely influenced by
Western ideas and policies."
In the first course Dr. Costi plans to
focus on the impact of 18th, 19th and 20th
century Western imperialism on these
continents. “While this Western en­
croachment proved economically profit
able, it oftentimes occurred at the ex
pense of the natives. The motivation for
this imperialism and its consequences will
be the primary areas of investigation," he
explained.
When Dr. Costi turns to the second
term his focus will show how many of the
Western ideas imposed on the natives
became the basis for contemporary local
uprisings against foreign domination.
The third class will trace the develop­
ment of militarism including types of
c o n v e n tio n a l and u n c o n v e n tio n a l
warfare, the importance of nuclear wea
pons, the influence of war on current
world advancement and its future trends,
and Europe.
In the past this was
acceptable because much of the remain
ing portion of the world was either
backward or under Western domination.".
