Gilliam of 1601 Seventh St. in Brownwood is participating in a special training conference at | Ball State University in Muncie, Ind. Purpose of the conference which began Friday and will conclude Tuesday is to qualify professional staffs to teach the multimedia first aid course developed for schools and industry by the American Telephone and Telegraph Co. and the Bell Telephone System in cooperation with the American Red Cross. According to Gilliam, this is not a revision of the first aid materials but a new approach and method of teaching which cost the Bell system over $266,000 to produce. The new method is expected to do the job more effectively in less time, Gilliam said. Another feature of the conference ,according to Gilliam, is the opportunity to swim in one of the country's finest pools and video tape the aquatic skills of each conferee to aid in the improvement of aquatic ability. "Many changes have been made in the swimming strokes as outlined in the revised Ameri ican Red Cross swimming and water safety textbook now being taught to more than 133,000 authorized instructors in the U.S." Gilliam said. Gilliam has served as a safely program representive of the American National Red Cross since June 1942.
