Approval for the junior college to launch the NCR pilot program was received Friday, according to Dr. Herman Heise, IRJC president. Vero Beach High School will cooperate with IRJC's data processing department in testing the firm's preprogrammed student scheduling system and grade and attendance reporting applied system which will be offered to schools throughout the country next year. The pilot program will tie in for use with the new NCR computer, which is being leased by the junior college. It is expected to be in operation some time in January. Once the program is implemented. IRJC will take on the job of handling the Vero School's class scheduling, according to Don Mitchell, head of the data processing department. Work will involve scheduling classes on the basis of students' requests and assisting in setting up the high school's master schedule. "The computer will determine the number and type of classes needed on the basis of demand, and what will be the best times to hold the classes," Mitchell said. "Hopefully," he said, "We'll also handle attendance reporting and process student grade reports from the teachers' reports through the final printed grade report to be handed to students." As the system's "files" are built up, Mitchell said, the computer would eventually be used in organizing materials for use in career counseling of students. The aim of the program is to cut down on the heavy load of clerical work handled by teachers and administrators and to accomplish the chore more quickly than by manual methods. Davis Chairman Of Delegation By CONNIE MENGER Vero Beach Bureau VERO BEACH - Representative Charles E. Davis Jr. was elected delegation chairman for the coming Legislative session at a meeting of the area legislative delegation held in Cocoa Beach recently.

Duties of the office include processing local bills, scheduling public hearings, scheduling and acting as chairman of delegation meetings, supervising of the delegation staff and handling press releases at the direction of the delegation. "I hope to be able to set up a delegation representative in each county as soon as possible," Davis said. "These representatives will be able to contact me directly at any time with any problem." Also at the meeting Representative Richard Tillman was instructed to begin studies on an approach to the home rule problem. f' ; 1 r 4fea&tMKMtM .W. K . irt III Mill aiiilv m. - 4.

North Palm Beach councilmen. in their regular meeting Tuesday night, are scheduled to act on two ordinances up for final reading. The first is designed to give the mayor the right to declare an emergency in the event of civil disorder and the second ordinance will set standards of refusal for persons with criminal records applying for identification cards. Monday night's meeting at Jupiter Inlet Colony is expected to determine if the community will remain a member of the north county Council of Governments (COG ). A hassle over the water and sewer zone being considered by COG representatives saw two Inlet Colony officials storm out of a meeting several weeks ago. By ROBERT K. OGLESBY Lake Park Bureau JUNO BEACH Florida motorists may soon be saying "thank-you" to two men here who have developed the "rain safety light," designed to aid drivers to comply with Florida's headlights-in-the-rain law. Huey (Slim) Nolin and John Lidinsky, who operate Johnny's Standard Oil Station in Juno Beach, have just received notice of patent pending designation on their "rain safety light." The idea for the unit, a relay switch connected to both the low-beam headlights and windshield wipers, was born last Spring and developed by Nolin. who is secretary-treasurer of Rain Safety Lights, Inc. Lidinsky. president of the new company, explained the operation of the unit to the Post-Times. Basically, when a driver turns his wipers on during the day in rain, fog or other precipitation, the low-beam headlights automatically switch on also, thus relieving the driver of remembering to turn on the headlights himself. "We have counted autos traveling by here on U.S. 1," Lidinsky said, "and during the rain, approximately 70 per cent of them. do not have their headlights turned on, despite the fact that they are using their windshield wipers." He said that "just plain forgetfulness1' is not the only reason so many persons drive without their headlights during rain. "A lot of drivers are afraid that if they turn on their lights during the day, they will forget to turn them off when they park their cars," he said. He said that this fear is well-founded. "We get a lot more dead-battery calls on rainy days than any other time," Lidinsky said, "and it's usually because the lights have been left on." The "rain safety light" "remembers" for the driver. Nolin said. When the car ignition is turned off. the wipers stop, thus cutting off the headlights at the same time, eliminating any chance of a dead battery. The unit, itself, is a small metal box. designed to be mounted in the engine compartment of the car in about 20 minutes. It is designed to activate the headlights only when the wipers are turned on. By ROBERT K. OGLESBY Council action during the coming week will be centered on regular meetings in Palm Beach Gardens. North Palm Beach. Jupiter Inlet Colony and a workshop session in Lake Park. The culmination of an interesting controversy is expected to occur when Gardens councilmen take up for final consideration Monday night the malt beverage i beer only t ordinance allowing the sale of same within the city 's light-industrial zone. Councilman Norman Brown has opposed the sale of malt beverages in the M-l zones since the idea came up for discussion months ago and he is expected to vote against the measure Monday night. The ordinance, which sets the hours for sale from 10 a.m. until 7:30 p.m., has "been tailored too much to one specific situation." according to Councilman Henry Jewett. He did not. however, say whether he would oppose the measure in its final reading. Brown has opposed the idea of any sales of malt beverages in the M-l zone along Burns Road, "for fear of creating u typical manufacturing zone poor in appearance." Other items to be taken up by the Gardens Council include the presentation of the city's two Junior Orange 1,900 In Stuart Expected To Vote STUART Approximately 1,900 persons are eligible to vote in the City of Stuart primary next Tuesday. Acting city manager Edwin Glasscock said that voters must live within the city and be registered at City Hall to be eligible to vote. Voting will be at the Stuart Youth Center on Flagler Avenue between 7 a . m. and 7 p.m. Eight candidates are vying for two commission seats presently held by Dan McClure and Ray Cooke. The primary will be followed by the Dec. 10 election. When McClure and Cooke won re-election in 1966, there were only 431 votes cast of the 1,979 registered voters. The turnout of voters is expected to be much greater this year. The line-up for the Nov. 26 primary includes : Group 1 Walter Robinson, Kenneth Stimmell, Charles Foster, George Huss and McClure. Group 2 John Mann, Harold Whalen Sr. and Cooke. Staff Phofo Ity ShrUaTryk Beach basks in the sun after a session of ice skating at the West Palm Beach Municipal Auditorium.
