for certain handicapped individuals
A proposed
testing center,
which wouldfacilitate handicapped
individuals, might possibly be con­
structed in the near future, said
Hakanson. "The center could pro­
vide nurses, technicians necessary
for the construction of special
equipment and specially trained
individuals who can relate with the
problems encountered by handi­
capped individuals," he said.
The center could then test each
individual as to what equipment
they might need to perform their
course of study, Hakanson said.
The testing center would spare
each individual institution the ex­
penses necessary for the develop­
ment of a personal testing center,,
Hakanson said.
"As of now, the College is in
total compliance with section 504,"
and according to Hakanson, "leads
the nation in terms of non-dis­
criminatory compliance."
Such measures, as braille-coded
room numbers, electric doors, and
elevators in Barlow, Randall and
McLoughlin halls are only just a
part of the College's compliance
with section 504, Hakanson said.

Quick thinking saves students life
Quick thinking and prompt
emergency care saved the life of
a college student who suffered
a heart attack in the library last
Barbara Frantz, a graduate of
the Licensed Practical Nursing
(LPN) program at the College,
and a student currently seeking
a degree in counseling, was rushed
to Holiday Park Hospital in Port-
land, after receiving emergency
first aid treatment from Bonnie
Hartley, campus nurse; Chuck
Adams, registrar and Coordinator
of the Emergency Medical Train­
ing (EMT) courses in this area;
and an unidentified student who
had taken EMT courses.
Within five minutes after cam­
pus personnel arrived at the scene
the Paramedic squad from the
Oregon City fire department ar­
rived with the Willamette Falls
ambulance squad coming in right
behind them. Hartley said.
"You are basically five to six
minutes away from medical help
here," Adams said.
Margaret Charters, head librar­
ian, has also been cited for quick
She called the switchboard
immediately who then handled
all the calls for emergency help.
According to Adams, students
who find themselves in the posi­
tion of being the first or only one
on the scene of such an emergency
should take some important steps
If possible they should send
someone for help. However, he
emphasized that the victim should
never be left alone.
"They have only four minutes
before brain damage becomes a
possibility. First aid must be rend­
ered immediately," he said.
After ascertaining that the
victim has had a heart attack by
checking for symptoms which
include; severe crushing pain in
the chest, possible numbness in
the left arm, nausea and fainting,
CPR must be initiated at once.
If the victim is unconscious,
they should open an airway by
lifting up the neck, pushing the
forehead back and clearing out
the mouth if necessary.
If breathing has stopped, arti­
ficial respiration should be started
at a rate of 12 inflations per
minute. The pulse in the neck
should be checked.
If there is no pulse .artificial
circulation should be started.
After locating the pressure
point,the sternum should be de­
pressed 60 to 80 times per minute
while artificial respiration is con­
"The critical thing is to act
immediately,* Adams said. "Every­
one should have some CPR train­
