Harlan School in Lockhart has enabled students to enjoy the summer learning activities as well as experience three educa- tional field trips. The main theme for the six weeks program has been "Achievement by Mo- tivated Learning". The students have enjoyed audio-visual aids in solving math problems and in reading stories along with other activities planned to help them in their next year's work. On their first field trip, the students traveled to Lake Jac- kson where they went on a Sca- venger Hunt searching for var- ious articles previously re- viewed in the reading lesson. Also they enjoyed a "Water- melon Cutting" as they prac- ticed their counting skills in a "Seed Counting Contest". Oth- er recreational games and re- lays were enjoyed and winners were rewarded with prizes of bubble gum and candy. On July 14, the classes jour- neyed to Opp where they were given a tour of the Cross Trails Regional Library by Mr. George Johnson. Here the stu- dents viewed two very interest- ing films and learned the way to take proper care of books. They also saw the Listening Cen- ter and enjoyed the Indian Arti- facts and Relics. Bookmarkers were given to the boys and girls on their way out. For their final trip on July ~.1, the students enjoyed a day at Blue Lake and Open Pond near Andalusia They were met there by Forest Ranger Wil- liam, Burns wh(f led them= in groups of eight up the 100 foot fire tower. When they reached the top, Mr. Burns showed them how to locate and report fires, and also let them radio in on the short wave system to find the weather forecast. He gave them a short tour of the Main- tenance Building where he talked to them about conservation. This was quite an experience for all the boys and girls. Ar- riving back in Lockhart that day were some happy but tired sum- mer schoolers. FAMILIES RECEIVING FOOD ASSISTANCE DECREASES IN MAY There were 5,054 low-income Covington County people on the U. S. Depar.Lment of Agricul- ture's family food assistance in May as compared to 5,164 the previous month, reports Russell H. James, Southeast Regionaladministrator of USDA's Food and Nutrition Service. At the state level, it was noted, there was a slight de- crease of 575 in the number of people on USDA food assistance programs in May. The number on the food stamp program was up 1,871, while the food distri- bution program's total was down, 2,446 to give the overall slight decrease. In the food stamp program, operating in 22 Alabama counties in May, 195,660 people were issued $4.8 million in food coupons. Of this amount $3.3 million was in free or bonus stamps. This was an average of $16.68 per person in free stamps, he added. The counties operating food distribution programs gave 235,071 needy people over 7 million pounds of USDA-don- ated food.
