James H. Combs, superintendent of schools, reported he has seen evidence of considerable interest on the part of local industry in getting the proper type of vocational education program in the Pittsylvania school system.

He added that he hoped this cooperation would continue while the survey team is at work. A definite need for trained workers demanded the attention of Lonnie D. Bennett of the Virginia Employment Service. Most of the jobs filed with his office here, he said, require high school graduates, plus special training in numerous cases. He also noted that women should be included in the study since they comprise 40 to 45 per cent of the workers in Danville.

Turning bis attention to the General Assembly's next session in 1966, Stone predicted that a state sales tax will be passed, but that it "will not be the sales tax that many people are clamoring for." Most advocates of such a tax want the revenue returned to the localities, he explained, and he would be willing to vote for a measure of this kind. What he is predicting, though, is that "if the state legislature passes a sales tax, the legislature will spend the revenue." 18 Are Inducted In Honor Society Eight seniors and 10 juniors at George Washington High School were named to the National Honor Society yesterday in a ceremony in the school au- brook who allegedly was auditorium. occupant of the truck at thej The seniors included Nathalie .1 i A iri- port education for all--something which, he noted, will require different types of training, of which vocational education will be a big part.

Despite this increase in patients, the hospital was filled to only 90.1 per cent of its capacity last month, while it was 94.3 per cent full during February last year.
