Registration will be from 7:30 to 9 p. m., Monday, In room 102, which Is located in the west wing of the high school. At 7:30, a general explanation will be given. Besides a continuation of the courses offered last semester, which already are full, persons may register for new courses << shorthand and typing, beginning arts and crafts, beginning clothing and a shop course called, "Build- It." The number of registrations will determine which of the. new courses are offered, Classes will begin Jan. 17 and run 10 weeks. If the response is . satisfactory, more courses are planned for another 10-week period to begin when the forthcoming sessions end, about June 1. Several Hold-over Courses Courses offered last year which will be carried over are two tailoring and one beginning clothing class In "the home-making field, two pipe-fitter welding, one boilermaker welding and two apprentice carpentry classes in the trade and industrial field. These courses which were offered last year are under the State Board for Vocational Education and have employment requirements, hence no tuition is charged as" two-thirds of the instructor's salary is paid by the state. *The new courses offered will have a charge of $5 for residents and $10 for non-residents to cover instructional fees. The cost figures 50 cents per meeting on a 10-week basis. Costs in these pro- posed course* must be paid for out .of registration fees and from operating costs In maintaining the school bulldiifg. Expansion of night School offerings resulted from a survey made last fall which revealed that persons In this, area were traveling to Granite City for some courses which could be offered in this locality. Another survey made two years ago. revealed residents going as far as the David Rahkin School. •mlth DlMUS*e« Expansion In discussing the future expansion of the adult evening program at the high school, A. Edson Smith, principal, said, "Schools formerly believed their educational obligations to ^the individual was fulfilled when a student graduated from high school and received a diploma. Now we realize that the schools jre responsible for a continuous program of educational leadership and some of the greatest benefits are made possible through the program the school offers for adults on a noncredit basis." "If the program were successful, we ought to accommodate at least two-thirds the number of adults as students in continuation, recreational, avocational and retaining programs," Smith said. First class meetings for the new courses, except the "Build-It" course, will be staged Tuesday Income Tax BOOKKEEPING EARL ROOK 250 Acton Ave. Wood River Phone 4-5751 night, Jan. It. Th« first meeting of the «hop course will be held Monday, Jan. 23, All courses will be two hours In length, except the shop course which may be longer, and will meet for a term of 10 Weeks. Student Must Be 18 These courses are a service of the public sc.hool and any person 18 years of age or older Is eligible for the courses except those trade extension and apprentice courses already., in progress in which there is a limitation based on the employment Of the student. These courses are not open to students now In school and they are offered for the personal gain to the person taking them rather than for credit or n diploma. •During the school term just ending, 139 men and women were enrolled in adult classes at the community high school.
