A unfortunately a he added a too Many parents who Are working put too much Premium on College degrees David Wilson who is heading up a cooperative training program at Burr and Burton Seminary in Manchester told the commission his venture is proving successful in a Small Community which will probably never have a major vocational Center. Essentially the bus program allows students to train on the Job with area employers while finishing their Normal schooling. The program was launched at bus Only this year. Wilson said 16 students Are now enrolled and the format Calls for a Complete Job training outline prepared in Advance by employer and school. Wilson himself follows up each student s Progress in bimonthly visits. Bus headmaster Houghton d. Pearl said he hoped Manchester could strengthen its ties with the established training centers in Rutland and Bennington in order to provide More Optima for the 40 per cent of bus students who do not go on to College. Following the presentation by pc chairman Ferdinand Bongartz concluded a there really does no to seem to be that much the commission can do to get in the picture unless its simply to coordinate the needs of existing and new employers with the training projections in the his remarks were followed by presentation from Dean James Donahue of St. Joseph s College in Bennington and Everett Rosscup of Bennington who has been waging a one Man Campaign for a free Community College in Bennington county. Crosscup told the commission his efforts have been futile in spite of local Industry support because the county does not have the population to support a Community College and the state does t have enough Money in its budget. Donahue who described St. Josephus As a Center for technical training particularly in business accounting said there was a very simple reason Why Young people left Vermont after graduation. Jelly Mill continued from Page i such requests. The two issues grew from an incident which received wide publicity in the state Media. Arguments Over the two questions have gone by virtually unnoticed. But if the court answers the Points joined by the two attorneys Vermont criminal Law could see new provisions from Page i Puter card which was sufficiently isolated from the whirling gears of a computer sorting system. In this Section he Cut a Small rectangular window and taped in a piece of microfilm Over the aperture. He then reduced the original picture to fit the size of the aperture and transferred the image to the film. From these Early experiments the Langan aperture card system was born and soon a number of other government agencies adapted the novel sorting and retrieval method after the War Langan licensed his invention and from 1943 when the first aperture card system went into operation at Oss to 1959, when the Minnesota mining and mfg. Co. Ultimately acquired the rights a whole new application for business and Industry had been developed. Today Hoag says Industry and the government require aperture cards by the millions. With so Many duplicate copies of technical information required by big business today Hoag says an Engineer simply phones the computer Center and requests the necessary data. The information is then gathered from the master Index instantly reproduced on identical aperture cards and popped into the mail. Upon receiving the card the Engineer inserts the card into a Reader Printer and reproduces from the microfilm the sketch or diagram in its proper scale. The location of film card corp. In Bennington and Hoag s association with the new firm came about quite by Accident. Hoag was originally hired by Exeter corp. To be Plant manager at Ben Mont papers. This association lasted two years and from Bennington Hoag went to Pennsauken. N.j., to be Plant manager of the Langan aperture card co. The a plan gang in this Case was the Langan of Oss Fame who had developed a new machine which would produce a new Type of aperture card More rapidly and at a lower unit Cost than the principal supplier 3m co. Hoag recalls that his arrival in new Jersey preceded t the company s collapse by about four months. Although the new card was revolutionary in design problems with the machinery caused such uneven delivery Hoag immediately recommended the Plant close Down and the machinery be re designed. Although his recommendation was followed problems in the front office forced the company to close its doors permanently. You la never miss that Dollar a week investigate our shoe club plan Martin s shoe store 123 North St. Bennington it. But Hoag Brief experience in new Jersey convinced him that the process could be made to work. Quickly he reorganized the company in Bennington and with the Aid of local businessmen in town purchased the assets of Langan apertures. Next came months of painful experimentation. On some Days the Small Plant on be Mont Avenue resembled an Auto graveyard. The big machine with its innards spread out on the floor and tables looked like a humpty dumpty to the no mechanically inclined. All the tolerances and gear ratios were checked and rechecked. Critical parts were re designed and assembled. Right now from a manufacturing and or duo Tion standpoint film card is a a sound operation a Hoag asserts. What the company Hopes to do now he says is to develop systems for the Small businessman local police departments insurance companies the local Hospital local Banks anyone with a paper work problem. Its possible Hoag says to get people out of the habit of working from paper completely. A the microfilm clip on the card will hold 84 by la Standard size pieces of correspondence. All a businessman or Secretary would have to do is insert the card into a Small desk Reader and copy the desired information. The next thing Hoag Hopes to perfect is a retrieval system within the Means of the average main Street businessman. He admits this will not be easy. A the Trade constantly talks of gadgetry for the big boys the defense Industry general electric and the Telephone company. The emphasis is on the number of cards produced or the number of documents which can be reproduced on a microfilm clip he added. The company s goal is to put together a system of photo reproduction and retrieval in the $3,000 Range. Hoag describes the Ideal system As the Model t or Volkswagen of the Industry a a system for the common Man he adds. A it must be easy to operate mechanically sound save time and space and be inexpensive. A after All who wants to wrestle with stacks of file cabinets filled with insurance policies medical records or just the average paper clutter which gathers in any office a he asks a when the whole thing can be reduced to a Ringle drawer of microfilm cards by Stewart Hancock West Dover officials Here thursday night strongly objected to a series of conditions included in the recent District environmental commission preliminary approval of the controversial Dover fire District no. I. Sewage treatment Plant. They claim that the commission requirements attached to the preliminary Okay of the Plant a remove All viability from the Joseph Lassiter chairman of the fire districts Prudential committee said that the conditions which would place controls on the operating level of the sewage Plant make the facility an a economic a How can we expect people to help finance the local share of the project if we cannot assure them that someday they will be allowed to connect with the treatment Plant a Lassiter explained. The preliminary conditions would prohibit any increase in the initial operating level of the Plant until the first phase of the Highway department plan for improving routes 9 and too has been approved by the legislature and require any new sewer lookup resulting in the input of More than 1,000 Gallons per Day to file an act 250 application. The fire District had hoped to finance the local share of the sewage facility largely with funds from developers who Are planning subdivisions within the next to years.

The $2.1 million Plant is designed to handle the 1980 estimated full time population equivalent of 20,000, reporting a five fold growth in the area. A it would be difficult to convince land owners who plan to build in future to buy shares in the sewage Plant unless the fire District can guarantee that someday they will be allowed to be connected into the Plant a Lassiter said. At a meeting thursday night the Prudential committee unanimously adopted a Resolution condemning the preliminary conditions. However they did pass a proposal for an alternate condition which would delay construction of the sewage facility Iii til the first phase of Highway improvements for routes 9 and too is approved by the legislature. The fire districts alternate condition would preclude any further District commission controls Over the Plant. The fire District officials also discussed the possibility of the construction of a smaller sewage facility with a capacity of 500.000 Gallons daily less than half of the estimated maximum operating capacity of the currently proposed Plant. A if the reason behind the commission conditions limiting the operating of the Plant results from the size of the proposed facility then we must consider building a smaller Plant a Lassiter said. At the District commission hearings on the sewage plants act 250 application representatives of the state environmental Board contended that size of the facility would encourage a rapid development of the area. The state Board urged the District commission to include conditions on the permit setting of guidelines for a controlled soviet Edge is no deterrent to Salt Vienna up a increasing soviet superiority in some areas of nuclear weapons development has not affected . Determination to get a treaty out of the strategic arms limitation talks diplomatic sources said Friday. The sources said the . Position is still based on president Nixon s concept of a sufficiency Quot a not superiority or even exact parity. Soviet Progress does not Compromise this concept they said As Long As America has the Power to survive a first strike nuclear attack and retaliate. The third meeting of the current Vienna round of Salt was held Friday under the Shadow of a report by the authoritative a Janes weapons systems of London which said Russia is outstripping the West in missile development. A Jan est cited soviet naval growth Progress in Earlyw Aming radar systems and its Lead in anti ballistic missiles abm an evidence of a powerful Moscow initiative toward superiority. The sources conceded the accuracy of this report. But they pointed out that the . Government was Well aware of this trend and was proceeding toward an agreement anyway on the theory that a rough balance of Power was More important than missile for missile parity. Friday s meeting at the american embassy lasted two hours and 45 minutes and was devoted entirely to formal statements by the two delegation leaders Gerard c. Smith and Vladimir s. Semenov. This departed from the usual format in which most meetings Are followed by informal chats Over soft drinks enabling experts from each Side to clarify Points and the probe technicalities. Another unusual event was the announcement that j. Graham Parsons the state department representative on the . Team had gone to Brussels wednesday to Brief America s nato partners on the talks so far. Such briefings in themselves Are common. But Parsons trip took place just after the first meeting of the Vienna round indicating the United states had something new to report.
