The students were housed in dormitories at Monmouth Col lege. The purpose of the program was to professionally evaluate the students and give them ex periences that would introduce them to the world of work. The program was divided into three main categories; Pre-vocational training; recreation, and vocational training. Charles Loveless, a special education teacher from Aledo, supervised the pre-vocational training. This included self-care, hygiene and tasks that varied from painting rooms to laundry service. Hiram Brownell Jr., supervised the recreation which was designed to promote learning enjoyable things to do with leisure time. Group activities in- ciijded roller skating, fishing, miniature golf, bowling, archery, swimming and trip to a zoo. The major thrust was aimed at vocational training. Work experiences were given at Achievement Industries and at Monmouth College where some of the students worked in food service arid on grounds crews. Some of the students also worked at local nursing homes. In addition to the actual work, the students were given batteries of work tests which will be evaluated as to ability, production and attitudes. The results of the tests will be sent to parents and school officials. Plans call for the same type of program to be conducted here next year and for this group of students to be invited back for one week for a re-evaluation stfsion. Following the graduation ceremonies, Tomlin presented certificates of appreciation to Monmouth College, the Saga Food Service, Applegate Inn and the Monmouth Nursing Home. in; llll' 1 Karen Frey, right, was one of many Warren County 4-H members who served coffee and cleaned tables at the annual 4-H barbecue at the Farm Bureau building in Monmouth Thursday night.

Mrs. Axiine said today that 15 of the 16 women have already 1 been assigned to jobs. Since May 21, the women have been given 40 hours of instruction in health care and homemaking skills. Mrs. Axline said most of the instruction was on health care skills as several of the women had already completed classes in homemaking skills given through Achievement Industries. "I did have Mrs. Vickie Hennenfent, who teaches the homemaking courses, help with one class and used some of her materials in other classes, however, for the benefit of those who had not had that course," said Mrs. Axiine. Mrs. Axiine said the women are trained to give personal care to ill or bedfast patients; to recognize symptoms of the more common dread diseases; to prepare special diets, and to ambulate patients and help them with physical therapy. Consent of the family physician is required before a Homemaker-Health Aide is assigned a case and the woman works under the physician's or physical therapist's instructions.
