y r - A program aimed at interesting the young clientèle of i Ozone House in reading is to be initiated with community [ and University assistance. According to Erica Raine, an Ozone House worker, the program is directed toward I the runaways and "street kids" who have reason to visit Ozone House for counseling. Miss Raine hopes to gather used books, maazines, comic [ books and newspaper and with them and pass on to other youths. As she says, -"The basic assumption behind this reading program is that the formal educational system has ceased to function for the clientèle of Ozone House." Thus, she states, it is necessary to freely provide such bored youths with reading materials so that they can continue to learn even away f rom school and "to demónstrate that reading is a pers o n a 1 communication o f ideas." In order to initiate the program, Miss Raine is seeking donations- in the form of either money or used reading materials from community and University groups, organizations and individuals. Those who wish to make any such contributions may drop them off at Ozone House, located at 303 E. Liberty; mail them to Miss Raine at 1678 Murfin, number 18; or cali her at 761-6641 or 769-6540 for further information.
