It Wasn't Easy Roxana Graduate Made Grade in Wheelchair ROXANA-Dorothty Gross, 1963 Roxana High School graduate, literally rolled through school on ball bearings, but that doesn't mean It was easy. Dorothy has never walked, gets about in a wheelchair—to Roxana swimming pool, where she is employed for the summer, to school social events—but she gets there! During her high school years she got about with such good effect that she was a persistent member of the school honor roll. Dorothy has had to overcome numerous obstacles, the main one being her inability to walk, the others being complications growing out of that fact. Probably the most difficult ones were concerned with attendance at high school. One. of the first obstacles, transportation, was taken care of by the fact that her home is just a block from the school, so that most mornings Mends were able to come by for her. Another problem was that of getting up and down the school stairs. To eliminate the constant climbing and descending of stairs usually required of high school students, her freshman and sophomore year's classes were arranged so that morning classes were downstairs and afternoon ones upstairs. Her junior and senior years, all of her classes were held downstairs. Also, during her sophomore year, the school built a special ramp up the outside steps so that she was able to enter and leave the building alone. Despite the numerous problems encountered, Dorothy still found time to make honor roll grades in her courses and be in extracuri- cular activities. She was in the Future Homemakers of America for all of her high school years and was FHA secretary her junior year. She was also a four-year member of the Roxana Pep Club, typist for a year on the school paper, a school switch board operator for two years, and a two-year member of the Quill and Scroll, an honorary journalistic society. Just two weeks ago she was awarded a school spirit medal. 4 Treated At Jersey Twp.

He was treated and dismissed. Francis Farmer, 2, son of Mr. and Mrs. Warren Farmer of Dow, caught a fishhook in the small finger of his left hand Sunday afternoon and was brought to the hospital where the hook was removed. Now an assistant cashier at the Roxana Swimming Pool, she plans to go into secretarial work later. She is a daughter of -Mr. and Mrs. Wilson H. Gross of 318 Doerr Ave. DOROTHY GROSS 3 Injured In Crash At Jersey JERSEYVILLE — Three Jerseyville women were injured about 10:45 a.m. Sunday when cars operated by Kenneth B.

RANGOON — Burma plans to take over all importing firms. Rotary Club of Jersey Hears County Judge JERSEYVILLE — Judge Howard Lee White gave an interesting talk on the County Court at the Rotary Club meeting Monday noon. One of the most difficult problems that arise in County Court, Judge White said, is the matter of handling juvenile offenders who are brought into the court on delinquency charges. "Too often in the parental .background there exislts apparently little interest on the part of the parents in the one brought into court, in some cases the parents showing little concern for the fate of their offspring," Judge White pointed out. Judge White related in detail something of .the appointive powers of the County Court in such matters as the Board of Review and Community Hospital board members, and stated thai it has not been determined how such matters will be handled under the corning change in the judicial system as a result of the adoption of the Illinois Blue Ballot by the voters of Illinois last November. Judge White also discussed at length the changes that will exsist after Jan,, 1964 when the present system of justice of the peace courts, county courts, city courts and all other judicial systems other than the Supreme, Appellate and Cirucit courts will pass from existence. Magistrates will be named in a manner not presently definitely determined to handle such matters as the circuit judges may assign to them. The program chairman for Monday's meeting was Fred Breitweiser. Know The Reason?
