said Bennett, due to state aid
through the basic school support
fund approved by the 1947 legis
lative session. The district spends
on the handicapped child at least
at the normal per-pupil rate and
is reimbursed by tht state at IVt
times that rate. ,."
The work is carried on through
schools as much as feasible, with
group work employed to save time
and to aid in the effort. Children
who need such guidance are with
drawn from their regular classes
for brief periods. For those who
are bedfast or otherwise unable
to attend school, tutors are ar
ranged. Also helped are those
with low vitality or- needing so
cial adjustment.
The special education program
is designed to correct attitudes aa
weu as handicaps, Bennett
stressed to help the child "live
with and face his difficulty' If It
can't be removed.

Wednesday night by Manager
William Baillie of the local of-
ice of Oregon state employment
Baillie urged the Salem Cham-
ber of Commerce board of which
he is a member to consider new
approaches to eastern concerns
contemplating western plant es
tablishments, on the strength 01
trends in Salem area empioy-
Noting a total of some 3,500
Job seekers on record at the end
of June, Baillie declared that
"99.44 per cent of these really
want to work and a high per
centage of them constitutes 'able-
bodied men suitable for steady
gek RefuUr k
This contrasts, he said, with
last year's summer employment
that included many persons seek
ing light or seasonal jobs persons
who since have removed them
selves from the labor market.
Most of the present Jobless rep
resent new families in this area,
hoping to find regular work and
locate here permanently, Baillie
Because of the nature of the
present unemployment load. Bail-
lie nrcdicted new industries here
could find a good labor supply
without disrupting the balance
necessary to provide for needed
employment at seasonal peaks
such as the food processing peak
in lata Aiimxt and earlv Sritem-
ber. This he explained by stating
that wives and older children of
industrially employed men would
enter the labor market at such
seasonal peau.
To Report Further
Baillie, chairman of the cham-
ber's industrial committee, sug-
gested that the chamber direct-

cials of potential locally estab
lished industries. He said his
committee would make further
report to the chamber later.
' Reiterating earlier reported
trends. Baillie said much of the
unemDlovment stems from the
poor cherry and berry crops this
year. He said present cannery em
ployment totals only about 1,800
as compared with some 3,000 last
year at this time. He also said

Bennett noted.
To provide closer correlation of
school offices, due to need for
more desk space, special and voca
tional education departments are
to occupy rooms at the west end
of the school administration's
third floor. Moving from those
quarters to other sections of the
building are C. A. McClure. en

No date has been announced
for the wedding, but it probably
will be in October at Westminster

The former prince, who gave ud

to be named a duke. He probably
will become the Duke of Claience.
This title has been vacant for a
half century. He is a great, great
grandson of Queen Victoria and a
distant cousin of Princess Eliza

daughter of Victoria.
