Teen Dimes March List Co-Chairmen Nancy Greenwood and Jim Welch have been appointed cochairmen of the March of Dimes National Foundation's Tee n-Age Program (TAP). John E. Rolen, campaign director of the Calcasieu-Cameron Parish March of Dimes, said the first duty of TAP will be to work with leaders of youth organizations to alert them to the opportunities in the health field through the National Foundation's scholarship program. Each year the National Foundation offers five four-year college scholarships worth $500. The scholarship program is designed to train high school and college students in nursing medicine, medical social work, occupational therapy and physical therapy. Nancy and Jim recently attended the Louisiana Slate Teen-Age meeting in Baton Rouge with Rolen. Nancy is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David M. Greenwood and a senior at Lake Charles high school. She is co-editor-in-chief of the school newspaper and a snare drummer in the Lake Charles Kil- ties. .Jim is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Donald II. Welch and a senior at LaGrange senior high school. He is president of the Key Club and a member of the National Honor Society. Both are active in s c h o o 1 affairs. During the summer, Nancy attended the Leadership Conference and Pelican Girls' State, both at Baton Rouge. Jim has won a number of oratorical contests and last year was a member of the state championship debate team. Rolen said future plans for TAP include waging a public education program against birth defects and arthritis and helping adult volunteers with preparations for the January March of Dimes, j Rgj Chilld Wheat NANCY GREENWOOD . . .Dimes ro-rhairman After Mishap On Boulevard One minor injury was reported and a ticket for failure to yield was issued by Lake Charles city lolice as a result of an atitomo- )ile accident at Enterprise Boulevard and Alamo street yesterday.
