Page 10 - Wednesday, July 30, 1980 American Leg00 William Russe00ll Ledford Unit 293 By DENA GAMBETTA For the first time in many years, William Russell Ledford Unit 293, American Legion Auxiliary, was elated to f'md out that a student at Washington School, in the 7th grade, was a winner in the Americanism Essay Contest on the District level. This means that this student had to compete with all the other schools in five counties. Kathleen Marie Hare is the honored student who won first prize0n District level for her essay in Group lI in all five counties. She was awarded a citation and a check in the amount of $10. Kathleen had previously won on unit level a citation and a check for $I0. The subject title of Kathleen's essay was "If I were President." This essay was printed in the local paper in April. Kathleen Marie Har.e is thirteen years old. She was born in Cloverdaie and has gone to school here since kindergarten. She enjoys playing the Clarinet and is in the Washington School Band. Kathleen also takes ballet from Ballet En Ronde. She likes to read, roller skate, and also does art work. She en- joys animals and when she graduates from high school is planning to go to college, probably to Chico State, where her sister, Karin, and, her brother, Kevin, went. Kathleen is the youngest daughter of Howard and Pat Hare and will be going into the 8th grade in September. We of the Auxiliary congratulate Kathleen on her award, and bringing such prestige and honor to both her school and the local Auxiliary. Kathleen, we hope you will be first on state level next year. Aria Mac Bogner was the unit's Americanism Chair- man for last year. At con- vention, new titles were announced for the Americanism Essay Contest. They are as follows: Group I, 4th, 5th and 6th grades, ',My County Needs Me." Group II, 7th, 8th, 9th grades, "I Believe in America." Group III, 10th, llth, and 12th grades, "A Land of Dedication and Dreams." A special class and awards will be offered this year for the exceptional child with a subject title of "America Is Beautiful." At a recent installation of the Sonoma County Council, Cloverdale was hnored to haveoneof its members to be installed as the marshall for the year 1980-81. Laura Anello, our dedicated hard worker in our unit was in- stalled as the Council's Marshall. Congratulations. Laura. The Sonoma County Council is composed of all the units in Sonoma County, and they meet every other month in the various posts and units in the county. At the Sep- tember meeting, William Russell Ledford Post and Unit will be hostessing the Sonoma County Council. Henrietta Ruppert, our Music Chairman, who recently won first prize for her music report on State level would like to share this little saying with you. "A day without Music is like a day without Sunshine." She urges all to sing the Star Spangled Banner in all your meetings. Elsie Karr, our Membership Chairman, is on cloud nine this week, as she has collected the dues from 118 members, which is our quota for the year. We hope that we are first in the District and State level to attain our quota. Elsie says a sincere "thank you," all you dedicated members made this possible, by being so prompt with your dues payment. The next Auxiliary meeting will be in September, when the Girls Stater will give a narrative report on her ex- periences at Girls State. There will be no meeting for the Auxiliary in August. Two of the Auxiliary members are serving as volunteers for the newly formed "Hotline" program which started the first of July for the Healdsburg, Geyserville and Cloverdale area. An interesting quote: Since school will soon be starting. This will never be a civilized country until we spend more money on books than we do on chewing gum...Elbert Hubbard. 4 Kathleen Marie Hare, student of Washington School, was thi Winner in the American Legion Auxiliary's Americanism Essay Contest on the District level.

SRJC program provides trained X-Ray specialists The technologist who filmed your last x-ray probably graduated from the Radiologic Technology program at Santa Rosa Junior College. With National Radiolngic Technology Week being observed in July, it's an appropriate time to call at- tention to the SRJC program. Each fall, SRJC accepts 15 students into the Radiologic Technology program, and those students begin an ar- duous 26-month course of study that includes a clinical internship in local hospitals and radiology labs. Even during the summer months, "Rad Tech" students at SRJC are studying human anatomy, praeticw41 how to position each Other under x-ray machines, and serving their internships. Upon graduation, the students are ready to enter the job market as assistants to the professional radiologist, who specializes in the use of x-ray, radium and radioactive isotopes to diagnose and treat disease. The technologist positions the patient, exposes and processes x-ray film and helps the radiologist care for the patient. Graduates of the SRJC program have an excellent history, of immediate era- ployment, according to Adele Livingston, the program's coordinator. Graduates are eligible to take the examination for national registration and California State certification. Livingston reports that the fifteen students who graduated from the program last November received high scores on their board exams and that they are all em- ployed in hospitals or medical facilities. "Our students are highly motivated young adults who see a rewarding career path ' ahead of them," she sayd. In connection with National Radiologic Technology Week, the federal Department of Health, Education and Welfare has prepared bro- .chures, posters and other information to make the public aware of the vital role played by the technologist and to alert people to both the benefits and dangers of x- rays. "Seven out of 10 Americans will receive a medical or dental x-ray this year," says Livingston. "Most of the time that's fine, because the x-ray will help your doctor find out what's wrong and decide how you should be treated. The information from diagnostic x-rays can even save your life." "But sometimes x-rays are taken when they're not really needed. And even when there is a good medical reason for an x-ray, proper care must be taken or the patient can get more radiation than necessary." The Radiologic Technology students at SRJC are trained to work with the radiologist and with the patient to help minimize the risk involved'. And there are certain things a patient can do, too, to avoid risk. "Keep an x-ray record and show it whenever an x-ray is ordered for you," Livingston advises. "Tell your doctor if you are, or might be, pregnant. And ask if a gonad shield can be used." Livingston is enthusiastic about her work as coor- dinator of the Radiologic Technology program at SRJC. "The greatest reward of my life is in seeing these students blossom into thinking, caring technologists," she says. Many students come into the program who have already completed four years of college and some have been employed in other fields and think it's time for a change. "These students are at- tracted to the challenge of radiology," she says "and we usually have more ap- plicants for the program than we can accept." Manzanlta Manor Musings By JAN FREEMAN Growing Older is Part of God's Plan You can't "Hold Back the Dawn" Or "stop the tides from flowing" Or "keep a rose from withering" Or "still a wind that's blowing and time cannot be halted in it's swift and en- dless flight, For age is sure to follow youth like day comes after night For He who sets our span of years and watches from above Replaces youth and beauty with peace and truth and love And then our souls are privileged to see a hidden trure That in our youth escaped our eyes in our pursuit of pleAisure : So Birthdays are but way To the everlasting beauty of God's eternal day." From the sublime to the ridiculous: Actual excerpts from various church bulletins: This evening there will be a meeting in the north and south ends of this church.
