The girls -- Karen Jones, Missy Carney and Kay Kilgore, are excellent students, according to Buck Watson, post advisor, who said girls are accepted as participant members in specialty scouting groups. Mike Burns, a University of Arkansas sutdent, who received his underwater training while he was in military service, is the instructor for the 14-hour class being held each Monday night at the Boys Club Swim ming Pool. The Explorers have to meet certain swimming requirements prior to starting the s c u b a training. After t h e s e are satisfactorily completed they move into Uie underwater phase of the training. Orientation in the proper use of mask, snorkel and fins is the first thing on the training schedule and afterwards students start working with t h e scuba tank, regulator, wet suits and weight belts. Students m u s t familiarize themselves thoroughly with the s p e c i a l equipment, both assembling a n d dismantling above and underwater. Safety is emphasi/.cd throughout the entire learning process including "h u d d y-breathing" where students exchange regulators underwater. Later this summer the classes will move to Lake Wedington where students will make their initial dives. The first will be to 30 feel and the second lifl feet.

Charles Percy said was a "pigsty." T h e Illinois R e p u b l i c a n Wednesday told an applauding audience at a theater in one of Washington's black slum areas that he had telephoned the landlord and convinced him to start repairs after he and other members of the Senate hunger committee toured several tenements. HEARINGS END The committee's three days of hearings on poverty and nialnu trition in the capital concluded today with a session focusing on. among other things. Washington's high infant mortality rate. A survey two years ago said only Mississippi had a higher infant death rate than the capital. Tuesday, Percy visited the four-room apartment of Mrs. Dora Crowder in a run-down, trash-littered area and learned she pays more than half of her $270 monthly welfare check to rent the apartment for herself and six children. "It was a pigsty. It was terrible." Percy said,- noting there were vat boles in the walls, the only toilet had been stopped up for months and there was no hot water. FIRST TIME As a result of his phone call, he said. "This morning, for thc first time, two plasterers and a general repairman showed up at 7:30. "With the spotlight of attention on them." he said, "something is going to be done. "We recognize this is the case, and we intend to do something about it." But not everyone was convinced the start would he continued. "We in Washington don't, have senator's who are going to come around to our homes every month." commented Mrs. Marty Green, one of three mothers on welfare who appeared before the committee. . Like Tuesday's field trip, the hearing Wednesday brought repealed testimony aboul his rents and inadequate care of property by landlords. The committee received more testimony that the cost of food stamps is too high for many welfare recipients with large f a m i l i e s and that cumbersome administrative requirements discourage m a n y applicants.
