Meetings and conferences have been held since the Federal Elementary and Secondary Education act was passed. The project must be presented to the state board of education for final approval, and it Is hoped that it will qualify for federal funds. There are many steps yet to be taken, first of which is to obtain approval of the state board, and toward that end, Mr. Quintard, Algona Superintendent 0. B. Laing, and L. B. Shelton, superintendent of LuVerne, will go to Des Moines to meet with members of the state board. Suggested Is that the project start with four or possibly five rooms, the locale not yet chosen, and eventually obtain 8 to 10 rooms In various parts of the county. Instructors, who must be specially trained for this work, must be obtained. The amount of federal funds to be allocated to the county has not yet been established. Those who have been associated with the project feel that there Is a great need In the county for this type of specialized education and feel that at least the groundwork has been laid. The present school for retarded children, in Algona, has been organized and Is operating as a result largely of coordinated efforts of individuals, rather than as a tax-supported program. tiiirfflwiiWHiiiHKinniiiiniiHiiiii Notes Of Servicemei Airman Witzel, a graduate of LuVerne Community high school, is returning to his Iowa Air National Guard unit at Ft.
