(AP) —Evangelist Billy Graham says the U.S. Supreme Court erred in even considering the issue of prayer and Bible reading in public schools. "The Supreme Court was wrong in even tackling the problem," he said, "because now it will have to rule on chaplains in the armed forces, 'In God We Trust' on our coins, chaplains in Congress and even chaplains in the Supreme Court itself." f and the progress made by CALTEC since it opened its doors on June 3, 1963. The local Civitan club is one of the sponsoring agencies of the training i center for retarded personnel I over 16 years of age. ' Of the 35 students who began the two-month evaluation , course, Fontenot stated that 22 !of the 25 boys and 9 of the 10 i girls have successfully complet- icd the course. He happily re- j ported that one young lady 'dropped because of matrimony. 1 During the evaluation period, the retardate's abilities were tested through the use of certain j tools and equipment, he added. | These tests hleped the evaluation to determine the academic jand vocational capabilities along with the social and personal adjustments needed which are so vitally needed in planning the retardate's future. Fontenot pointed out that of the 35 retardates who entered the training period, nine boys have successfully completed the program. ! Fontenot said that the students received training in leather craft, woodcraft, ceramics, , small engine mechanics, home 'economics, grocery store activities, academic and grooming training. He went on to say that the students were also offered a program which includes reading, writing and some arithme- ilic as related to the vocations the students are pursuing. Personal adjustment activities include athletics, personal cleanliness, good grooming, etiquette, character development along with safety and Americanism were injected into the whole program. Fontenot stressed the need of light fixtures and plumbing for the center. Civitan Ralph Pre- jcan said he was sure he could be of some help in this area. Fontenot concluded his summation of CALTEC activities with the news that seven male students are currently employed in the Greater Lake Charles area. Edward Strenk, Civitan president, introduced the guest speaker and special guest Bill Holloway of Cities Services.
