Hernaaadez Wedberg Conrad Falk axgarita - Sal- On January 26, Mr. Arnold received from the office of thb Belgian Inform- ation Center, a letter ffescribing an ed- ucational kit which is to be sent free of charge to high schools through-out the United States to further a better understanding of Belgium, one of our smaller occupied countries, t This kit is to be made up of the fol- lowing : A map of Belgium and the Belgian Congo with a short history of each A disc of Belgian music and sheets containing the words. Interesting incidents in Belgian hist- ory; and pictures of Belgium and the Belgian Congo. Mr. Arnold was glad" to accept their offer, and in reply, asked for forty student kits, which will help our stu- dents to better their understanding of Belgium. On May 24, a teachers guide was re- ceived, which suggested the following information. It is suggested that the teacher show her students, with the help of the maps, the economic regions of Belgium and the Belgian Congo. The teacher could give one or sever- al lessons on both Belgium and .the Belgian Congo which the students could follow with the help of their own kits. The students should be invited to write an essay as a result of the les- sons. The best essay, in the opinion of the teacher should be sent to the Bel- gian Information Center for the award of a book prize. The .Center will then in turn choose, with the cooperation of educational authorities and editors, the foremost of these essays, the author of which will be invited on a visit to Bel- glum after the war. The educational kit which was to havebeen forwarded to Mr. Arnold in the~ .arly spring was held up unavoid- ably. However, it arrived on May 31, and the students started w~rk on their kits. The seventk and eighth grades have started th-.ir essays, which must be complete by June 15th, the closing date of the contest.
