The over-all aim is to illustrate general folklore theory and methodology rather than the folklore of any one particular geographical or cul- tural area although Iceland will be a prime consideration. The student will have such questions answered as: What it is, How it originates, What it means, and Why it is of continuing importance for an understanding of the nature of man. The instructor, Elizabeth Stern, is a Fulbright Scholar from the states. She is in Iceland to finish up her PhD. in Folklore and Mythology.

After students have successfully com- pleted two courses in EMT, they are eli- gible to take the state exam through LACC Overseas for their license. The class involves procedures in cardiac care, resusitation of adults and children, initial care of trauma and shock victims as well as countless other techniques used in emergency care of vic- tims. Equipment has been provided through LACCO program for student use in the Station Hospital.

Pay R aise President Carter has approved a 7.05 percent payraise for all military person personnel and civilian government em employees which went into effect Oct. 1. The Naval Station Keflavik Disbursing, Office expects the pay raise to be included in the Oct. 15, pay check and will announce any changes as to when 7.05 per cent assured 12 per cent reallocated it will be includedin the Plan of the Day. Twelve percent of the pay increase will be reallocated to BAQ (Basic Al- lowance for Quarters). This means that the actual increase in basic pay will to total about 6.2 percent. The increase in the Basic allowance for subsistences (BAS) will remain at 7.05 percent. The amount reallocated to BAQ will be returned to single personnel in the form of an increased partial BAQ payment. This same rebate method was used last year and recognizes the fact that bachelor quarters 'and ship's berthing do not provide more value to the service member than the normal BAQ amounts forfeited. October 7, 1977 NHA needs your support The National Health Agencies are actively seeking cures and preventions for health care problems affecting the lives of millions of Americans. The sixteen non-profit National Health Agencies (NHA) work to improve the health of all Americans through direct medical research, community services for the sick and handicapped and their families, and educational programs for the public and for health care pro- fessionals. Your support of NHA, through the Combined Federal Campaign Overseas Area, can help make many people happy, including you and your family, by providing the means for improving our nation's health care. NHA-sponsored medical research teams are at work across the country finding better methods of patient care, testing new drugs, seeking causes, preventions and cures fo diseases. New surgical techniques and early detection methods are being perfected in NHA's all-out fight against sickness and disease. NHA educational programs inform health care professionals of the latest developments in medical research and patient care. Doctors, nurses, therapists, and other health care personnel are alerted to health care advancements in seminars, lectures and through medical literature. NHA sponsors nation-wide medical campaigns urging Americans to improve their health, by having annual checkups, receiving prenatal care, and by being aware of the dangers of smoking and other health hazards.
