Project FROM PAGE --b le pro other ten-percent is to vided by the local school board in the form of quarters for holding the program in, equipment and some volunteer personnel to assist with the project. SAME AS LAST YEAR I Lowery said the plan of operat-I ion will be much the same as the one followed last year, with Mrs. Margaret Kilmer, a teacher in the first grade at Wright Denny School, in Charles Town, again serving as the project director. And she will again be given assistance by Miss Lucille Hefle- bower, director of instructions in the county school system, and Warren Mickey, who is heading up the various Federal programs for the school board. The instructional Centers will be for the most part the same as those used last year, or a total of about 10. Indications are now two will be located in Shepherdstown; two in Harpers Ferry; two in Ran- son and four in Charles Town. The centers will all be located in county school buildings. It is ex- pected that there will be a paid staff of about 35 to 40, about the same number as last year, runn- ing the program, with assistance from possibly as many as 70 volun teers. Transportations will be provid- ed for the children to and from the instructional centers, with the details on this phase of the pro- gram to be announced later. The sessions will be held each morning Monday through Friday from 8:45 until 11:45, with a break coming sometime during the three-hour sssion at which time the children will be served cook- ies and light refreshments. The reason for adjourning the classes at 11:45 is to have them back at their homes in time for lunch Lowery stated. Meetings Set For Next MRS. PAULINE OTT Mannings - Dial 725-2750 MRS.
