T h e Fayetteville Adult Iducatton program is an oul- rowlh of the belief of the )oard of Education that the eed for formal education does ot end with high school or ullege graduation or at age'18. The concept of continuing ducation available to all who wish it and offered at times when working people can take advantage of it is not a new dea. But the actuality of an iperating program is still lomparatively rare. The program as it exists in Tayelteville is divided into the our areas - of academic, /ocalional, special, and general interest.

(AP Wirepholo) Coal Operators Stand Fast In Face Of Strike WASHINGTON «VP) -- The United Mine Workers says a nationwide coal strike is likely Nov. 12 unless the industry makes concessions on key health and safety issues, but ' the coal operators indicate they are'standing fast. "Time is running out," declared OMW President Arnold Miller who charged that the "inflexible position" adopted by the Bituminous Coal Operators Association all but assures a strike. \ "If there is to be a prayer of negotiating a settlement and se- · curing ratification without a strike, tough, hard negotiating · should he going on this very minute," Miller told a news conference Thursday. Contract talks covering 120,000 UMW members who pro- duce about 75 per cent of the nation's soft coal recessed last Monday when Miller said the industry rejected the union's proposals to improve health and safety in the mines. The two sides are not scheduled to meet again until Monday. . The union chief called the industry's counter proposals "garbage," saying they are like asking "for a three-year renewal of their license to kill." Every third day a miner is killed and "unless the BCOA assumes a willingness to negotiate in these critical contract areas, I must reluctantly report to the American people that a nationwide coal strike is likely to occur on Nov. 12," Miller said. The current ''three-year pact expires on that date. In responding to the union's charges, the BCOA issued statement, saying it is willing t negotiate in good faith and sti hopes to work out a peacefu settlement. However, the BCOA sail some of the UMW's demand would, in effect, force the in dustry to surrender its manage ment rights. "There are certain' principle that we must stand fast on,' the BCOA said. "These are th responsibility to manage th mines, a responsibility we can not abdicate." The UMW also is demandin a substantial but unspecifie wage boost, but economic is sues have not yet been dis cussed since the talks begat Sept. 3. Miners now earn between $4 and ?50 a day, depending o their jobs. ..Ill ;ram functioning at grade evel zero to complete his high school education entirely at night.
