OUT OF THIS WORLD
Sputniksl Flying Saucersl Guided Missiles! What would it be like to visit a school of the future,
for ahead in modern scientific advancements, and truly "Out of This World"? Let us allow our
imaginations to guide us, and set forth on our iourriey.
As we awaken to the souncls of our atomic-powered super-hetrociyne radio receiver, we find
our energy-packed breakfast automatically prepared for us by our nuclearepowered robot. After
we quickly clown our capsules of protein, quick-energy, and vitamins, in order, we leave for a
few hours of learning in our 2958 Model T Atomic Jet.
Our first class, I-iistory, finds us watching a television spectacular, number three in the series
of "Great Events in the History of Man", entitled "The Launching of Sputnik". As are all other
television productions, it is naturally in Cinemascope and Living Color. Our history tape recordings,
since old-fashioned books are outmoded, differ as to the exact date of the historical launching, but
they seem to agree that it was somewhere around l957. We certainly do find ancient history
As we advance to our next class, Calculus, Vectors and Differential Equations, we think back to
our grammar school days and our Second Gracie Algebra teacher, and we are especially grateful to
him for the wonderful foundation he gave us. We are currently solving problems with our computers.
We often wonder what we would do without theml Since the need for a more efficient power system
to replace atomic energy is growing, our assignment for the evening is to do some research an
Recently, Physical Education has been eliminated from the selection of courses. Our generation
finds that since we live in this age of push-buttons, physical fitness no longer needs to be developed.
Replacing this course, we assemble in the auditorium to study our Pilots' Education. Afterwards, we
adiourn to the runway, where we practice what we have learned.
Our next class is Foreign Language, and we find ourselves busy translating the Martian dialect.
We feel that man should bcome acquainted with his neighbors, and since the planet Mars is prac-
tically next door to us, we are very eager to learn the language of its people.
We are thankful that time passes so quickly, for it is already time for our mid-day meal.
After a delicious lunch, we proceed to out next class, This one is our most enioyable, Music
Appreciation, This week we are studying ancient forms of music, and our teacher has prepared
some selections by 20th Century composers. tr is hard to appreciate what they intended to convey,
since it is difficult' to reproduce the tones on our more advanced instruments. However, we do find
it is interesting to note the similarity to our own everyfctay music. Our pleasant hour of listening is
interrupted by the passing signal, and we depart for our final class of the day.
As we begin to get settled in our Modern Language class, one of our fellow classmates is
n'arked tardy by the electric eyes as he passes through the door, and he explains that he was
delayed because he received a citation for unauthorized entrance to the laboratory.
The English language having been revised so that all words are spelled phonetically, it is
difficult to imagine the struggle which our ancestors must have had to spell their words. In class,
our assignment is to prepare a composition on Ancient Methods of Schooling. Our History class has
given us ahead start,

Finally the dismissal signal is heard, but instead of returning home, we head for the meeting of .
the Future Space Travelers' Club, where the topic for discussion is The Possibility of Public Trans- . 3, 8
