Serving as the journal of the Manitoba Social Science Teachers' Association, this issue commemorates United Nations Day with the editorial, "Teaching about the United Nations" (Ken Osborne). Another article devoted to the international organization is "The United Nations and International Peace and Security" (Ken Osborne). The article is intended to: (1) introduce students to selected approaches to world peace and security; (2) describe the United Nations in this wider context; and (3) help students think about the issues involved. The article is divided into nine sections devoted to different aspects of world peace and the United Nations. Most are followed by a list of questions and activities. An outline of topics and subtopics on a U.N. unit, a profile of the U.N. Secretary General, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, and an assessment of the United Nations taken from the 1988 annual report of then secretary general, Perez de Cuellar are included. Ten other articles include: (1) a conference program; (2) "Heritage Fair"; (3) "The Federal Election" (Ken Osborne); (4) "Canada's Electoral System" (Elections Canada); (5) "Canada's Electoral System: How It Evolved and How It Works" (Elections Canada '88); (6) "A Response to the High School Review" (Chris Johnson); (7) "An Earthbound Design for Spaceship Earth" (E.
