Volunteer companions sought The Community Guidance Clinic is currently seeking adult volunteers who have at least two hours a week to give to its Volunteer Companion Program. The program is based on a relationship therapy approach to children for whom there exists high risk of learning and behavior problems. The program is not a traditional big- brother, big-sister program, even though it uses volunteers on a one-to- one basis. It is the goal of the volunteer to provide an opportunity for the child to develop a healthy, caring relationship, not involving material goods. The children's evaluations, as well as training and supervision of the volunteers are done by clinic staff. For more information, contact Mary Black at 286-4456. Good knight, credit Credit for inventing the credit card probably belongs to medieval German knights. On their travels they made use of a special seal-ring, engraved with their coat-of-arms. Each ring was registered by the jeweler who made it and innkeepers were provided with master lists of these insignia. This made it possible for the knights to travel about with a minimum of cash and valuables.
