Girl Scout Leadership Training Program Asked A trainee course for Girl Scout leadership will be conducted soon by Miss R. Flanigan of the Prince George’s County Council if 10 or more people enroll for the training. Claeses will be held in Greenbelt two nights a week for about a month. This was an nounced at a meeting of the Girl Scout Leaders’ Association of Greenbelt held last Friday night at the home of Mrs. Lillian A. Mitchell. Anyone who has not had pre vious experience in girl scouting and who wishes to become a leader may take this course. Can didates for the position of assist ant leader need no past experience and are not required to take the course as they receive their instructions from the leaders. The chief topic discussed at Friday’s meeting was the urgent need for Girl Scout leaders, assistant leaders, committee chair men, and consultants. It was dis closed that the leadership short age has grown out of the present emergency due to the fact that the use of many cars for Sunday driving and pleasures has been curtailed, and consequently, many of the girls will have to look for other diversions. Those present agreed that this means a far greater enrollment is expected than in normal times; and there is the added population of the town to cope with here. Those interested in maintaining the Girl Scout program are urged to contact Mrs. Roy S. Braden at Greenbelt 4646 or Mrs. Mitchell at Greenbelt 5601. The next meeting of the Girl Scout Leadership Association will be held on October 9 at the home of Mrs. Mitchell, 3-B Eastway at 7:30 p. m. Haircuts for Children Raised to 35 Cents The price of children’s haircuts was raised from 25 to 36 cents by a decision of the Greenbelt Con sumer Services board of directors at a meeting last Monday even ing. The new price will go into effect October 15. “This action was necessary to bring the prices up to those of surrounding barber shops so that the continued services of the £ resent barbers will be assured,” lanager Tom Ricker told the Cooperator. A check on other barbershops revealed that the low est price charged for a child’s haircut was 40 cents, and since the Greenbelt barbers do not re ceive a higher commission than those at other shops, it was deem ed fair that they should be allow ed to charge the same prices in addition, it is impossible to interest barbers in working in the Greenbelt shop when only 25 cents is charged, and it is contemplated that new men may be needed as the town continues to grow” he explained. lansportatlon Exchange Drivers Wanted Alternate driver needed to vicin ity of Intel ior Building.
