April 4, 1980 The White Falcon Page 3 A.T. Mahan Schools organize Parent Study Groups A growing interest among parents to find more effective ways of re- lating to their children, the A. T. Mahan Schools are now organizing Parent Study Groups. These groups will be for discus- sion and practice in developing skills which are essential to good parent-child relationships. Parti- cipating in these discussion grouns indicates the importance of child raising from toddlers through the teen years. The discussion will center on normal challenges of typical par- ents. The groups are open to par- ents and other interested individu- als who wish to communicate more effectively with children. The discussion groups will meet once a week for nine weeks. There will be a cost of $5 per person to cover the cost of the parent manual. The program which was purchased for the A. T. Mahan School by the Par- ent-Teachers Organization funds will consist of sharing experiences of common concern; identifying with tvpical responses to family problems situations on pre-recorded tapes; discussing weekly readings from the Parent's Handbook and practicing Daylight hours continue to increase During April the daylight continue to increase and as the average temperature inc 3.5° F over March's average the temperature increase the of days with measurable snowfa crease, averaging five days the month. hours result reases With number 11 de- during Precipitation can be expected on 19 days of the month which is mostly rain and drizzle.

(AFNS)— Can the Community College of the Air Force be a stepping stone to an Air Force commission? Yes, but some careful checking will be required to get the maximum benefit from your college credits. College is what it's all about and the right credits could ease en- try into the Air Force ROTC two-year program. Combining Community Col- lege credit with other academic pro- grams could cut some corners. Any school accepting transfer students has the right to determine which credits it will accept toward degree requirements. Some are quite restrictive. While many institutions accept Community College credits, most will only accept the portion that is re- levant to the new degree program. Thus, an airman with a Community College of the Air Force associate degree in one field might find lit- tli transfer credit accepted toward a bachelor's degree in another. On the other hand, an airman with an associate degree in a specialized' field might find a large number of credits accepted when pursuing a bachelor's degree in an identical field. The judgement on how much credit, however, is up to the individual college. Likewise, a degree from the Com- munity College of the Air Force is not the only way to approach the Air Force ROTC two-year program. Any airmen who have completed two years of college and can locate institu- tions that will admit them in junior standing, may apply for the two-year Air Force ROTC program, providing they meet all other criteria. The Community College may be a useful stepping stone for airmen who wish to enter the two-year program. But it is neither an automatic qual- ification nor is it essential to have an associate degree to apply for the Air Force ROTC two-year pro- gram, Stork arrival Shawn Escar Arkon was born at 5:22 p.m. on March 25. He is the son of Airman 1st Class Steven Michael and Sharon Louise Arkon. Airman 1st Class Arkon works with the Air Training Command. Jonathan Alan Castillo was born at 5:21 p.m. on March 26. He is the son of MSI Santiago F. and Joyce Sue Castillo. Petty Officer Castillo works with the Supply Department. specific child-training principles and techniques. The group size will be limited to 12 members in order to permit all members to participate in discus- sions. A waiting list for another group will be developed rather than start with a group too large to be led effectively. For parents of elementary aged children, the group will meet at 7 p.m. For parents of high school aged children, the group meetings will be at 9 a.m. Both groups will meet for nine consecutive Thursdays, commencing April 17.

Error in Florida form WASHINGTON (AFNS)— Florida's Ab- sentee Registration Form (DS-DE-28) has confusing instructions. It calls for the applicant's signature to be witnessed by two registered voters from the county in which the applicant applies to vote. This is an error in the state form. Anyone outside the county in which they wish to register should disregard the requirement for the two witnesses. Service people should complete the state form and have their oath taken by a notary public, commis- sioned officer or other person auth- orized to administer oaths. The form should be received by the coun- ty supervisor of elections in the county of voting residence 30 days before the election.
