   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 24, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                 2A The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sun.. Fell. 24, 1^74  Kirkwood Readies Staff, Student Car Pool Plan  By Judy Dauhentnier  “Everybody into the pool" may not sound like good advice in Iowa during February.  Rut if you're talking about ear pools for students at conv muter schools such as Kirkwood Community college, the idea makes sense.  John Swanson, head of student affairs at Kirkwood, said the college has developed a voluntary car pool system for students, faculty and staff.  Since Kirkwood has no dormitories, IOO percent of its students commute, 40 percent of them from outside the Cedar Rapids area. More than 400 of the school's 3.4(H) students travel between 25 and 50 miles each day to attend classes, and IO students have indicated they travel at least a 100-mile round trip each day to school.  With the assistance of the Cedar Rapids planning and zoning commission, Cedar Rapids, Marion and Hiawatha were divided into 12 zones. The rest of the Kirkwood area was divided according to zip code.  Interested students are asked to sign up during the week of March 6-12. Sign-up sheets ask whether the student is on campus mornings, afternoons, or evenings, and whether he can be a rider, driver or both.  Sign-up stations will be located in the transitional campus lounge, the learning resources center, cafeteria and Linn hall lobby.  The computer will sort the students who sign up for the program according to their addresses. The computer lists for each zone will be available the week of March 18 and will be posted throughout campus.  Swanson noted that the burden is on the students to call people on tho lists aud actually form the car pools. “Everything is pretty much up to the students— if they pay for a ride, how much they pay, if they drive or just ride.  “Some people have already formed pools, especially in tho vocational technical programs where students are together .all day long. We’re not expecting IOO percent response. We’ll consider it a success if we get 300 to 400 participants the first time out.  “We want to see it students really feel the need and will voluntarily c o m rn i t themselves."  Swanson emphasized the students enrolling for the first time at Kirkwood during the spring quarter will also be able to sign up tor the car pools March 4 and 5 during registration and the first week of classes.  “lf they are hesitating to enroll because of energy problems, this is a pretty decent out for them," Swanson said.  lf response is good, the program may be rerun in April tor the benet it of students who fail to sign up in March and decide they want to participate.  “We’re not trying to cry 'Wolf'." Swanson said. “We want to provide a service for which there is a definite need."  While the present set-up will enable students to get to Kirkwood within about a half hour of their class time, a more sophisticated program could go into operation next fall if students flock to the present program.  Developed by the Burroughs  Planning Session for  Regional Meeting  Representatives from YMCAs in ll states will meet Thursday at til© Central branch YMCA to develop training programs and set final plans for a Mid-America Region Y-Leaders conference.  The planning committee also will make the final decision on a site for the August conference. Both Coe and Luther colleges are under consideration for the regional affair.

In compiling the information, Miss Porter worked closely with the Research institute of America.

Representing Iowa at the session will be Julie Casali, Cedar Rapids, president of the Central Y Leaders club, and Ray Horner, physical director at the Clinton YMCA.  Miss Casali. a senior at Kennedy high school, was selected to represent Iowa at another leaders’ conference earlier this month in preparation for training other leaders at the regional session.  The August conference will bring together 50 to IOO members of Y-l/caders and Y-Junior leaders clubs from throughout the region to participate iii training and seminars relating to volunteer work in their YMCAs  The Y-Leaders and Y-Junior Leaders clubs assist regular staff members in organizing and carrying out various youth-oriented programs at local YMCA’s.  States in the Mid-America YMCA Region are Iowa. Wis-cousin, Minnesota. Missouri. Kansas, North and South Dakota, Nebraska. Wyoming, Colorado and Montana.
