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.
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
