The schools will be phased out of existence by 1971 through transition from a three-year diploma school to a two-year associate degree program at the Lima Technical Center. Announcement of the nursing education change was made today by Sister Mary Caroline, St. Rita's Hospital ad- ministrator; John P a p 1 o w Memorial Hospital executive director; and Daniel Brown, chairman of technical education at the new technical center, a division of Penta County Technical College to be housed at the Lima OSU Campus. The first class in the new associate degree program will be admitted in autumn, 1969. Transition to associate-degree the two-year nursing pro- gram is part of a national trend away from the hospital school to an academic environment, the three administrators indicated. A study of the trends in nursing education, including trips to schools presently pro- viding the two-year associate degree and conferences with leading authorities in the field, convinced officials of both hospitals and the two schools of nursing, that the shorter pro- gram effectively can educate competent bedside nurses, they said in a joint news release to- day. In the two-year degree pro- gram, expected to require six or seven quarters, Brown said about 50 per cent of the studies will be general and 50 per cent nursing, including on-the-job training at both hospitals. Students graduating from the center easily could transfer to a four-year bachelor degree pro- gram, said Brown. St. Rita's admitted 54 students for classes this fall; Memorial admitted 25. Since 1904, Memorial's school of nursing has granted diplomas. St. Ritas has graduated since 1921. The combined medical staffs of St. Rita's and Memorial have endorsed unanimously the change to an associate degree program, it was reported. Contributing to development of the new program were a health-science advisory com- mittee, guided by Dr. F. Miles Flickinger, and an associate degree nursing education study committee, of which Brown is chairman. The latter committee was organized after the health- science advisory committee determined that a study should be made. Dr. Flickinger was appointed by the Lima OSU Campus ad- visory committee to head the health-science advisers. nursing. Sister Mary Caroline Paplow, jointly stated: grams in the existing schools of we are confident that t h e j education of nurses for our 10- and county area will continue to be I of high quality, in keeping with Both hospitals are rightfully I the tradition established by the proud of the caliber of schools of nursing." graduates, but the future nurs-j The two hospital officials and ing needs of this area can be met most effectively through the new program to be provided the technical center chairman listed advantages to the associate degree program: It at the Lima Technical Center j involves only two years, rather on the Lima OSU Campus. than three, and students will "We shall be working very j have the advantages of campus closely with Brown and the faculty in the recruiting and clinical training of the students.

It also was noted that recruiting faculty for a college situation is somewhat easier than re- cruiting faculty for hospital schools.

Counting of the write-in votes by the county's data processing department will show only the total number of write-in votes cast for each office and not names of individuals receiving the votes, Medaugh said. They could be identified only by hand count. The election official noted state law has allowed write-in votes during primaries only, not providing for counting such votes at a general election. Names of persons who receive write-in votes during primary elections are not listed in official results unless they receive in excess of 15 per cent of the total vote cast for the office, he added.

Philip M. Boyle, director, told the planning group funds will be available from the Bureau of Public Roads July 1. to pay from 50 to 85 per cent of the costs of improving traffic movement in cities and ad- jacent urban areas. PreEminary information in- dicates that federal funds wiU be available for widening of streets, traffic signals and other means of improving traffic movement on major arteries, he said. In reporting on the new federal funding plan, Boyle said it be a method by which iLima might reduce its spending :plans somewhat. City Planning Director George Kruse, a member of the plan- jning agency, expressed interest iin the possibility of obtaining ;the federal funds and indicated the city probably will apply {or assistance in its traffic chan- nelization program.
