And since 1968 — the year she first rode her motorcycle into class — Dr. Short has become known as one of the University's most col­ orful and popular professors. \I want to hold students' at­ tention. I am enthusiastic about nutrition, and want my students to be enthusiastic too,\ she said. \By making my lectures excit­ ing with the latest technology, I am able to convey to students the importance of good nutri­ tion.\ At Syracuse, she pioneered the use of a learning technique known as compressed speech.

She also has ap­ peared on the \Today\ show, \Good Morning America\ and other national television prog­ rams. Working with state and fed­ eral officials, Dr. Short is no^v waging a battle against makers of \quick fix\ diet and health products. \As long as these fraudulant items are on the market, people will continue to take them to lose weight quickly or rid themselves of pain,\ she said. \Most of these products don't work, and many are dangerous.\ Although she is one of the na­ tion's foremost authorities on nutrition, Dr. Short remains committed to her students at Syracuse. By Sandy Barker The sing-song cadences of .nursery rhymes such as \Jack and Jill went up the hill,\ have entertained generations of chil­ dren, but Mary Lou Colgin of Manlius sees them as important language tools. Mrs. Colgin, who was a teacher and educational specialist for 12 years in the Syracuse pre-kindergarten pro­ gram, found that many three, four and five year olds were lag­ ging in language skills and that rhymes and chants helped to de­ velop listening, speaking ajid memory skills. Unable to find materials that suited her instructional pur* pqses^ Mrs. Colgin took on the world o£book printing and dis­ tribution, started her own pub- chants, designed a cover,' and' had \Chants For Children\ pro­ duced by ManTius Publishing Co. of Fayetteville in 1982. The book is now in its fourth printing and has recently been picked up by MacMillan Pub­ lishing and will be included in its Early Learning Book Club. \I knew what I wanted and what the children wanted. I wanted something for everybody and I wanted to keep the selec­ tions short. Young children have limited attention spans but young children learn best by handling materials, by doing. Beyond the joy of doing it, choral speaking also stimulates voc­ abulary development, pronun­ ciation and can help supplement and enrich cognitive ideas,\ Mrs. Colgin says. And the book is fuh, with old- time pen and ink illustrations, jump rope songs, chants on crea- tures, um^m^r-— Ja ^^^ ABCs, people, and Mother Goose rhymes. It was also compiled with an eye to classroom use and Mrs world. That interests me,\ Mrs. Colgih says.

She claims that her complete inexperience in publishing kept her from becoming intimidated. She bought mailing lists and ran up phone and mailing bills be­ fore allowing Gryphon House to distribute the book for her. About 12,000 copies of the 76 page book have been printed. Although Mrs. Colgin has written a couple of children's stories, she says she is not in­ terested in publishing picture books. \I think there is a dearth of materials to help teachers de­ velop questions appropriate to ask children in order to help communication. Because it is fun, children take part in the choral readings. It makes learn­ ing a pleasure and, according to Mrs. Colgin, it makes each child feel that the lesson is just for him. \The process of what a child does is more important than the product,\ Mrs. Colgin claims. And the educator believes that her book of chants helps children move ahead from where they are. In addition, a rhyme learned is something to keep and share, an accomplishment that chil­ dren can experience again each time they speak* the verse and feel the rhythm. 4* ^ COUNTS Antiques & Country Decorating An old fashioned country store overflowing with furniture, folk art, quilts, baskets, teddy bears, dolls & dried flowers.
