Super-DentV'no slip form TALLAHASSEE (UPI) -The State Division of Economic Opportunity, operating on the theory that today's college student has a great need to show social concern, is trying to channel energy that might go toward campus demonstrations into constructive programs in the community. The new program, "Operation Student Concern." has SAVE ula has a base which so closely resembles the feel and action of real teeth that users are calling it "foolproof" Super-Dent is already available in limited supply CLOSING OUT BY FACTORY Q Broyhill Premier Groups Ml; M ' M been in operation less than six months but State OEO Director James Bax says it is having amazing results. "The program was conceived by Gov. Claude Kirk," Bax said in an interview "and recognizes the need for students to show their social concern in a constructive way." The program is basically run by the students themselves, he said, with the state agency providing only consulting assistance and guidance. It is presently channelled into three areas in connecion with the lower economic and disadvantaged segment of society, Bax said, concentrating on programs for recreation, clean-up and tutoring. Bax said his office has enlisted the help of the student body presidents at each of the state universities who in turn have appointed coordinators on their respective campuses. The coordinators are responsible for assembling the manpower necessary to carry out the activities and come up with ideas for programs. At the University of Florida where the program began some 1,000 students are al- 2 FRENCH PROVINCIAL "MfllSON DE VILLE" BEDROOM i DINING ROOM FURNITURE CHOICE OF: ANTIQUE WHITE OR BURGUNDY CONTEMPORARY MODERN 'TRIBUTE' BEDROOM 8 DINING ROOM FURNITURE FEATRUING 'TARTANCLAD' PLASTIC TOPS "MAIS0N DE VILLE"BEDR00M GROUPS SAVE 25 233 72" Triple DOOR DRESSER & MIRROR DOOR, DRAWER BACHELOR CHEST TWO GRILL FRONT NITE STANDS King Size Blue Tufted Headboard & frame ACT reg. 1015.70 sale 00 761 SAVE 254.70 grams to give tutoring to elementary school students, providing recreation such as the junior Olympics which were held this past weekend and going into slum neighborhoods and leading clean-up, paint-up, fix-up campaigns. Transportation for youngsters and materials used in cleaning up neighborhoods are donated by concerned persons in the community, Bax said, making the entire program a non-cost operating for the state. He emphasized that all the students involved are volunteering their time for the effort, but that a number of university officials are giving consideration to allowing partial college credit in social work for activities in the community. Similar programs are now being organized at other state universities, he said, and the division has its eye on invading the junior colleges within a few months. Bax said Perker Meeks and Lee Clowers, two of his assistants, are coordinating the efforts, with their primary function to go into areas and meet with community leaders to "clear the roadblocks" for the students. Local community action agencies and VISTA workers, the domestic peace corps, are also cooperating. "We feel this program is a great one for students who want to do something in their community but don't know exactly how to go about it," said Bax. "We tell them how it can be done and then they do it." He said Operation Student Concern serves three purposes. It helps prevent riots on campuses, solves problems in the community and makes students feel like they are a part of their community. He refused to say flatly that the program is responsible for the fact that there have been no student demonstrations on Florida university campuses this fall. "I would rather say that this is a constructive way of taking away the reasons for demonstrating," said Bax. "We hope that students would rather take part in this program than demonstrate." 72" Triple Door Dresser & Mirror ONE Open Front Nite Stand Full or Queen size headboard and frame Door, Drawer Bachelor Chest SAVE 205.80 61600 NO FINANCE CHARGES AT CATERS reg. 821.80 sale "makan nt uii ip" nitjiiir. dmim r.nniiDC C A C O C 07 h k iikik ii win viwwi v w mm Amm mw O Antique White Finish 44" "Apartment Size" Round table (Two Tone) White & Cherry Large 52" Glass China, 2 Arm Chairs, 4 Side Chairs Reg. 1066.30 TO095 SAVE 266.35 I ever Forget J i """WEtfS'l qK gold.
