SUNDAT, OCTOBER 6, 1957. THE PHAROS-TRIBU^ --"TRANSPORT PRESS. LOGANSPORT, INDIANA _: ' PAGE THKEK NDAT, OCTOBER 6, 1S57. . • ' - . Vocational Students Receiving On-the-Job Training • . ,/.;•,. „ „ ^^•MHMHl manned.: "These girls are get: P««.J!?.,%^ ^ A special type of vocational train- Ing, established this year at Logansport high school,,is providing 17 seniors with ~on-th£KJob training designed to give them practical experience in the occupations of .. . •* • ' . \ their choice. The training program is officially known as Diversified Cooperative Education. -What it, means is that students are placed on part time jobs with local employers, who work with the'school to provide a controlled and v well planned system of vocational training. . Students acquire practical knowledge of work in their chosen fields, on the job, and receive the necessary theoretical training in special classes at the high school. Each of the students works at least three hours each afternoon. In addition,"'they attend regular high school classes in the morning and take special courses related to the jobs for which they are training. . ' Trainees this year are learning skills ranging from auto mechanics to hospital laboratory work. Those enrolled in the program, their employers and types of training are: Mary Lou Bender, Memorial hospital,: nursing; Fred Brummet, Holland Furnace company; furnace repairs; -Roger .Evans, T and L Tool and Die, tool and die making; Robert Fettig, Logansport Newspapers, printing;. James Fiedler, Ashley Tool and Die, tool and die making; Robert Hile,-Jones Auto Service, auto mechanice; Jerry Key, Art Roach Garage, auto mechanics; Bonnie Kitchel, Dr. I. C. Watts, dental assistant;- Carolyn Korrecht, St. Joseph's hospital, laboratory technician. machinist; Beverly Parmeter,. Memorial hospital,, nursing; .Dawn Prentice, St. Joseph's hospital, nursing; Albert Rhea, Franklin Garage,- auto mechanics; Parlen Tipton, Memorial hospital, nursing; Ronnie Warner, Alpha'Industries, drafting; and Carol Williams', Memorial hospital, laboratory technician. The man responsible for the program -is Henry J: Hodus, director- coordinator of vocational training at the high school. Hodifs came to Logansport last July from Seymour, Indiana, where he had been in charge of a similiar program for five years.. Preliminary work for the training had been done in 1956, when members of the Lay Advisory Board; a group of citizens interested .in this type of.program, recommended the move to the school board. ' Hodus pointed out that the system has been used in-other Indiana .cities and has proved quite successful. He said he had 45 students enrolled in his program at Seymour. When 'he came to Logansport, about 150 students here indicated they were -interested in the train- in". Because of the close supervision required and the limitations on his time, Hodus was forced to select' only 17 of these 1 students for the first 'year. , • The students first were screened by Hodus and then sent to interested employers for personal -interviews. Those finally selected were the ones who demonstrated the most likelihood to succeed in their lines- of work. . Hodus said one of the greatest advantages of Diversified Coopera- _ .. • il_l_ li. —-» n Wl ftP maim said.. "These girls are get; ting a,chance to learn now whether they really ,want to be nurses,-instead of-having .to wait: until they actually enter nurse's training." Other -trainees and employers taking part in the program were equally enthusiatic. , Lawrence Jones, proprietor of Jones Auto Service, is training Robert Hile; to be an auto mechanic. Jones said that very few young, men. were going into that occupation -today a'nd he was happy to have a chance to train a young man for a job. He plans to offer Bob fulf.time employment after he completes high school. "When Bob first started here,' Diversified Cooperative Education, it is one of the welcome by-products of-the program, at least from the students'. viewpoint. -...-. Employers must pay'the trainees a wage comparable to that paid a regular beginning 'worker, ,and in line with minimum'wage laws. Students may, work longer than the required-three hours- a day, if their employer can use them,, but they must obey; all the provisions of child labor, legislation. ' Hodus said he eventually would like to take on- a lull time assistant so that the program could be expanded to .offer its opportunities to more -students. • Wilson %s Military Spending Now Under 38-bil!ion Level - • • .-*', • • • . . •. *.« «Art A/in AAA «rt.rlii,/vfi/\Tl WASHING-TON ;,(UP)-Re1;inng Defense Secreiaiy' Charl^ E: Wilson ''says his economy ."drive- has inary'repons, totaled m- September.

By placing the students with local employers, the school can provide this training at a minimum cost. Community resources become school laboratories. , The employer also is beneritea by the program, Hodus said. Through the program he is supplied with potential full-time employees, already trained in many of the basic processes and operations of-the business. The. related instruction given at the high school helps the student to understand the principles of the work he is doing. Perhaps the greatest benefits go j.

In addition, each, student must turn in a weekly report to Hodus, outlining the work he has done during'the previous week, and the related topics he has studied in his classroom work .
