There are 43 in the 16-21 age group, 42 in the 22-44 age group, and 25 in the 45-64 age group. These are people who are dropouts or are interested in upgrading them- selves on their present Job or trying to get a better paying JOb. The agency has worked with 72 heads of households this month. They are enrolled in 8 vocational training classes. This number does not include the college enrollment. Trans- ferrable college hour s are being earned by these students. Some obtained student loans and some paid full tuition fees. As coordinator of the Donley County Program, Mrs. Osburn urges each person interested in the program to write your congressman and representa- tive requesting re-funding for the agency. "We want the Community Ac- tion Agency, Planned Parent- hood, Housing Development, and Educational Program for our area. This is an educational and child care facility greatly need- ed if we expect to develop in- dustry." There will be a survey of the county made for all purposes required for re-funding in the near future. All persons interested inpre- entrance testing for G.E.D., call 874-2G73. There are books for studying to prepare you for pre-entrance. Once thepre-en- trance is passed you can take G.E.D. with more confi- dence of passing it. G.E.D.
