Il .oaih I'ost-Times, Sunday, Nov. 10, 1968 Algebra Or Art Adult Education Meets The Need her left hand and then with a punch in her right hand punches a hole in the right square. That is, if she thinks the third answer to the multiple-choice question is the right one, she punches a hole in the third square. So far she has passed tests in English, spelling and punctuation. She is now working on social studies and natural science. At Palm Beach Junior College a young minister who recently returned from his second four-year tour of duty as a missionary in Vietnam, is taking courses leading to a degree in sociology. He Is Rev. David A. Frazier, of the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church, now living at 1143 El Prado St., West Palm Beach, with his wife. The couple was living in Pleiku, about 100 miles north of Ban Me Thuot, when Leon Gris-wold and his daughter, Carolyn, were killed in a Viet Cong attack last February. They, too, were working for the Christian Church and were also from West Palm Beach. Rev. Frazier said he is taking sociology so he can better understand people and that as soon as he has his degree expects to return to Vietnam. By TODD WRIGHT Want to learn how to read lips? Or, how about oceanography, marine biology, foreign languages or just plain old fashioned arithmetic? These, and almost any other high school subject you can name, including art and music, are available in the adult education program of the Palm Beach County School System. Officially, the program is called "General Interest Classes" (GIC). And at Palm Beach Junior College any subject on the curriculum is available in its adult education program, in day or night classes if you have a high school diploma. The diploma can be obtained through the GIC, most of which are conducted at high schools in various areas of the county. Some are taught in community rooms of banks, in churches, recreation and civic centers, city parks. and even in a shopping center to provide convenient locations. Lip reading, for instance, is taught in the community room at the First Federal Savings and Loan Association on Southern Boulevard on Monday nights. Normal high school subjects are in the greatest demand said John C. McAninch, program specialist for GIC. "Each passing year emphasizes the importance of a high school diploma for those seeking employment," McAninch added, pointing out that a diploma or its equivalent is a prerequisite for employment by many business and industrial firms. This is true of such local giants as RCA and Pratt & Whitney Aircraft. John Green, personnel manager of RCA, said the "equivalent" of a diploma depended on several factors, of which experience was the major one. "Thus a goodly number of high school "dropouts" attend GIC," said McAninch. "But the classes represent a typical cross section of American life," he added. "There are business executives brushing up on some neglected or new subject applicable to their business; housewives wanting to go back to work brushing up on their shorthand or bookkeeping; and many are taking courses they have become interested in for their own pleasure or satisfaction." One blind businesswoman in Lake Worth is taking courses, leading to a diploma, in her own home. A friend reads the textbooks to her and then McAninch goes to her home with special equipment to give her the tests. She listens to his tape recorder on which multiple-choice questions are asked. She can play each question over and over until she is sure she understands it. Then McAninch gives her a sheet of light plastic which contains four or five squares in a line. Each square has raised borders. She counts off the squares with a finger on event you plan to be away during construction, your Rutenberg Construction Supervisor will keep you informed of the progress of your home no matter where you are. Periodically, he will send you progress reports including Polaroid photographs. You can count on him as if he were working for you. Because he is. 7. In large print, exactly what is the guarantee you'll receive? In large print, here is the guarantee you'll receive on any Rutenberg Home you might select: A one-year guarantee against defects in original material or workmanship on the entire home, with an additional four-year guarantee applicable to the basic structural components of the home. In all, a five-year guarantee. This guarantee speaks for the quality of the home we build. 8. After your home is built, where will your builder be? Each Rutenberg Home comes with a Rutenberg Serviceman whose full time job is servicing Rutenberg Homes, and who doesn't know the meaning of maybe. Or next week. Or I'll have to check with the home office. He is as near as your telephone. He will call on you, automatically, in 30 days, again in 6 months, and 4. Will the builder's reputation help or hurt you in getting a favorable loan ? Because we have enjoyed excellent long-term relationships with all the lending institutions and our homes have enjoyed a consistent reputation for value, Rutenberg Homes command top appraisal; Rutenberg Homeowners command more favorable loans and service. Any Rutenberg Salesman will gladly arrange an appointment with the lending institution of your choice and attend the meeting if you prefer. 5. Which items are included in the final price and which aren't? Before final drawings are made on your home, you will meet with your Rutenberg Salesman and go over a comprehensive list of items you might wish to include in your home. This meeting serves two purposes: One, it provides for you a detailed list of every single item that goes into your home. And two, it gives you the opportunity to remind yourself of the many items you've thought about including in your home, but just might forget to include at the last minute. 6. If you're away during construction, how do you know what you'll come back to? In the again during your 12th month in your new home. If you need him in between, all you have to do is call. The service is free. 9. " Point by point, will the builder compare construction detail ? There are 14 basic construction points covered in our booklet. From treating the ground under your home against bugs and termites to the 5 separate materials used in building the roof. And everything in between. There is also a drawing' showing where and how each material is used. We don't know how other builders are building their homes. But the way we build ours is no secret to anyone. 10. As far as resale value is concerned, what is the builder's record? Because we build a better home, you get more home when you buy. You get more for it when you sell. And because Rutenberg Homes are in demand, you'll usually find 'A Rutenberg Home' is a part of every home-for-sale ad in the classified section of the newspaper when the home for sale is a Rutenberg Home. Check the classified section of this newspaper. And even if you aren't in the market for a used home, if you find a used Rutenberg Home for sale go and talk with the owner. The best salesmen we've got are Rutenberg Homeowners. Rutenberg Homes now offers 22 basic concepts in floor plans with many different exciting elevations. To see all of the newest homes and get your free copy of the Rutenberg Booklet, drop in anytime today between 9 and 5. 0 If you make a mistake buying a car, at least there's comfort in the knowledge you don't have to live with it forever. But making a mistake in buying a home can shake a man's faith in his judgement so badly, it often seems better to leave well enough alone. We appreciate this. But then we should. We've been designing and building Florida homes for a little over 15 years now. More than 5,000 homes altogether. More than 700 last year alone. Which has given us a razor-sharp knowledge you can take advantage of with no strings attached. Our experience has shown us the pitfalls and how to avoid them. We've accumulated this valuable knowledge in one booklet which is yours, free for the asking. All you have to do is stop by one of our model home centers and pick up a copy. Here is a sample of what you'll learn. Ten sharp questions you should ask before you buy anybody's home. Including ours. 1. Who owns the 'perfect location' the builder wants to sell you ? Rutenberg Homes owns no land. But we do help our home buyers find the right lot for the right home. In other words, because we own no land, we have nothing to lose by showing you any available lot in the area. And because we have no investment in any lot in the area, any available lot is available. The Rutenberg Salesman you'll meet at the model home center is a registered real estate salesman. His professional help costs you nothing. 2. How deep is the builder's experience in designing Florida homes? No one knows better than we that a Florida home is different from any home anywhere in the country. But then we ought to know. We've designed over 5,000 homes, every one on an individual basis for individual customers. In short, a Rutenberg Home is never an expression of design experiment. It is always an expression of design experience. 3. How far will the builder go to change his ideal home into your ideal home? Chances are you'll find a Rutenberg Home that's exactly what you've been looking for. But chances are just as good you'll want to make the home larger. Or smaller. Or put in something. Or take out something. We provide a professional design service for our homeowners so that each home will reflect professional design tailored to individual requirements. As a matter of fact, we provide two kinds of design services: One which is architectural. And one which gives you the opportunity of spending some time with a professional interior decorator. Both of these services are unique. They are also free.
