Page 2 Cheney Free Press [] Thursday, May 27, 1982 Rock n J Roll Last Thursday, Chris Hay's sixth grade class at Salnave school presented tholr class play, "Forming a Rock.n.Roll Band", to parents in an evening parlor. mance. The play, written by Hay, dealt with the problem of communication among students, parents and teachers and how to resolve the problem through mutual efforts. The four.act drama traces the formation o! a rock.n.roll band, complete with singing and danc. Ing by the 27 young actors. Hay explained that his class had recently completed units In guitar in. struction and aerobic dance. "The play was an effort on my part to give the kids an Introductory expedence with drama, utilizing the guitar and ser- olMc units that they were so enthusi. sstic about," he said. j' Coulee school seeking bread tabs School In the two and one-half years since the project's inception, each third grade class has collected over 500,000 bread tabs. Because the class which started the collection will be graduated to the junior high next fall, the "bread-tab- hers" are trying to reach their goal by June. In 1979 the third grade class of Center School in Grand Coulee began collect- ing bread tabs. The goal of the project was to gather one million tabs. Marla May, a fourth-grader at the school, sent a letter explaining the project. She said, "Children hear about a million dollars, a million people and a million miles so often, yet very few have any real concept of how much a million really is." Anyone interested in helping the youngsters reach their goal can mail their tabs to: 3rd Grade Classes, Bread Tabs, Center School, Grand Coulee, Wash. 99133. A TC plans for new facility Despite the financial constraints being felt by every social service program, plans for a new school facility and an overall spirt of determined enthusiasm toward the future marked the spirit of the annual meeting of the Adolescent Treatment Center last week. Formerly known as the Antonian School, the residential treatment facil- ity for severly troubled youth, changed its named early this year, in an effort to better inform the public of the school's function. Most notable in the school's recent projects is the launching of a campaign to raise funds for construction of a new facility. Publicist Margo Makini- Dreis and board member Alice Levy have been conducting a public relations program which included television spots, bill boards, bus signs and mas- sive mailings. The money for the effort was provided by a grant from the Leuthold Foundation. During the meeting, President Patri- cia Hahn talked about the future of the center which currently serves 22 resi- dents ranging in ages from 12 to 18 many victims of physical and sexual abuse, suicide attempts, clinical de- pression, conduct disorders and atten- tion deficit disorders. "The prospect of a new facility is at once exciting and awesome. The pros- pect of the financial commitment is both challenging and frightening but since we believe that our current and future residents are deserving of the best possible program and living, we are moving ahead with confidence and enthusiasm," Kahn said. Following the president's report, Ad- ministrator Matthew T. Wright de- tailed many of the center's successes in the past year. In the area of financial stability Wright said, "To date our expenditures Adolescent Treatment Center (tormefly the Antonian School) board members Include, from left, Michael Higgins, a physician, Daniel Kirby, vice president of the board and owner of Kirby Investments, Alice Levy, owner and president of Advertising Design Serv!ce, and Petricla Hahn, president of the board and professor of speech pathology at Eastern Washington University. She has been president since 1979. ATC board members Grand Opening RM SP CIAL $10 OFF have exceeded our income for the fiscal year. However, with the efforts of our fund raiser Margo Dreis, we have made a number of improvements which otherwise would not have been possible. Also a rate increase Jan. 1, 1982 by the Department of Social and Health Ser- vices has allowed us to offset some increased costs. At this time our fiscal status is our weakest link:" The administrator also said however, that a decision by DSHS to continue to fund all twenty-four resident beds at the center and a significant decrease in staff turnovers were hopeful signs. The center has remained strong in its program and staff, even in a time of economic decline and uncertainty," he said. Both Program Director John Dang and Education Director Gary Sigler commented on the progress of the on-site school program, now in its second year of operation. "Saying that "the quality and train- ing of our staff is at an all-time high," Dang said the on-site school's operation has produced a great reduction in truancy, school phobia and discipline problems. Sigler echoed these sentiments. Cur- rently, 22 residents participate in the school program. "Of these (students) five are fulltime students in the public schools and nine children attend public schools part- time. The public school attendance is at record levels. More importantly the resident's are earning credits toward high school completion at the rate of six credits per trimester -- the maximum possible," he said. The school director said the aim of the school program is "to increase pupil attendance, task completion and the demonstrating of appropriate social interactions." Despite a reduction in staff size to four members, Sigler said the program, coupled with other ther- apy programs offered by counselors is showing signs of increasing success. During the business part of the meeting, board members elected Dr. Allen Bostwick as a new board mem- ber. 20% OFF kmo, y thtu June 6 27 includes' WINDSEX:KS COOKBOOKS aRRSS POTTERY 6RSKETS 6RERDmRKING KITS Calico Cat exchange F&M BUS.

F&M Business Center Conservation metho00 paying off at EWU By EWU News Service Turn off lights when they're not needed, turn off the heat, and upgrade the buildings may sound like simple advice to save energy; but, at Eastern Washington University, it's a success- ful approach to high energy costs. Eastern has cut energy costs on its 335-acre campus by almost one million dollars since beginning its intensive Energy Management Program in the early '70s. The savings so far has been enough heat and light to annually service 610 average-size family homes. The catalyst for the savings at Eastern was a memorandum issued by then-Governor Dan Evans in 1974, mandating conservation programs for all state agencies. A three-phase energy management program was de- veloped for EWU's M-building campus in Cheney, where winters can hit 20 below. The first phase of the program, called the "quick fix," concentrated on light- ing levels. Lighting on campus ex- ceeded Illuminating Engineering So- ciety standards in many areas and was quickly reduced to lower, but still safe levels. Classrooms were monitored to make sure lights were off when no classes were in session, fewer night classes were scheduled and stickers were placed on switches, reminding faculty, staff and students to turn off the 66O run in 1 : 42. For the girls, seventh grade records were set by Janice Oliver with 64 push-ups, Shannon Hair with 44 burp- ees, Tricia Whitley with a 12.2 time in the agility run and Tammy Simmons, who completed the one-lap run in 12.6 seconds. Eighth grade records were estab- lished by Mary Giannandrea with 63 sit-ups, Lee Ann Alexander with a 12.6 time on the one-lap run, Jamie Mason, who finished the agility run in 12.1 seconds, Bridget Powers with 41 burp- ees and a time of 2.08 in the 660-yard run. Central Washington University--Air Force ROTC student Daniel Whye, a business administration major from Medical Lake will present the colors at the upcoming June 12 commencement exercises.

Medical Lake Elementary School-- Parents whose children are enrolled in the Title I reading program are invited to attend a meeting today at 10:15 a.m. Title I reading instructors will be on hand to summarize the program's status thus far and to share progress reports about students with parents. A luncheon will also be served. On May 28, sixth graders will travel to Medical Lake Middle school at 1:45 p.m. to attend a briefing session on what to expect at their new school. Third graders will travel to Eastern Washington University's planetarium at 12:30 p.m. to view a show as part of their astronomy unit. On that same day, about 40 youngsters with May birthdays will join Principal Jim Van Matre for lunch, a special occasion sponsored monthly by the PTSO. On June 1, safety patrols from the fifth and sixth grades will have a pizza and coke party at Clancy V's Res- taurant compliments of the PTSO. On June 2 and 3, children headed for Chet's Flowers the lights when leaving the room. The second part of the energy pro- gram at Eastern includes on-going "Mini-Max," a system in which select- ed buildings are put on time clocks for temperature adjustment. To date, 12 buildings have been refitted with the system. Aluminizing roofs has also been part of this re-fit stage of the energy program. Twenty-four university structures had aluminum coatings applied to their roofs to improve roof-ceiling insulation, especially criti- cal to cutting air*conditioning costs during Eastern Washington's 100-de- ree summers. Systems conversion comprises the third part of the EWU energy program. An energy profile for each major building on campus is currently being developed. Watt-hour meters and con- densate meters have been installed, with regular readings taken. Monthly reports are prepared showing both energy use and cost-efficiency data. The university's Physical Plant mana- gers analyze variances in order to make cost-effective decisions on energy consumption. Several new technologies are being used in Eastern's cost-cutting efforts. A system of infrared scanning to deter- mine heat loss in buildings has recently Open Mon.-Sat. 9 am to 5 pm 235-4916 Spokane # 838-7886 kindergarten will visit the elementary school for a preview of their new careers as students.
