A wit in the true sense of the word, Larry could chase the blues from anyone. He reads and writes in braille which he learned by necessity at a very early age, and says, "In a pinch, it could be mastered in about two months." Larry explained that the way he took notes in braille was to put a piece of paper between a metal sheet and form letters by making perforations in the paper with a stylus, a small pointed instrument.The letters are written from right to left, thus enabling him to read the notes forward when be turns the paper around. "Most of my quizzes are taken orally," Larry continued, "but my exams will probably have to be dictated." Right now he is looking for someone, preferably in law, to read to him, and grins that "Until such time, my father is filling in most capably." When asked why he decided to EXHIBITING THE DETERMINATION and gusto with which he "hit* hi* book*," LARRY FONTAN, blind prelaw student, tackle* a radio repair job.

University To Host High School Students in UN Assembly Here The date of the "junior" United Nations General Assembly, sponsored by the International Relations Club, has been changed to October 30 at 2 p.m. in the Fieldhouse, according to Tommy Walshe, club president. Walshe said the meeting will follow the same procedure as that of the General Assembly with approximately 20 private and public high schools from Orleans, St. Bernard and Jefferson pari.shes participating in the event. Each school will appoint a permanent delegation of five students headed by a chief representative who will have voting power. The IRC, which is the supervisory agent for the Assembly, plans to sponsor nine monthly meetings throughout the school year in which an international issue will be discussed. Each school represented will choose one of five possible solutions or "points of view" to the problem, Walshe said. Two weeks before each meeting the participating high school* will receive a study •heet on the problem! to be discussed and the five solutions offered. The schools will represent separate "nations" in the junior assembly's discussions. At the end of each meeting the delegates will resolve one of the five solutions to the problem in question by a two-thirds majority of those present, as in the UN. Walshe said the purpose of the Assembly is to understand other countries' points of view through debate, discussion and resolving of international problems and thus come closer to world peace. In case all delegations select the same solution, Walshe added, university club members will sit in as "dissenters" to create controversy.Local citizen! will be invited to join a panel of judges to rate schools participating in the project. The groups backing a winning solution will be awarded credit points, and the highest ranking school will be recognized at the year's end.
