Going Over Procedure: Volunteer receptionists who daily greet patients at Planned Parenthood's two clinics follow well defined procedures to enable them "to be a source of communication throughout the community." Here Mrs. Kenneth M. Case (left), volunteer chairman, explains a new procedure to Mrs. Clifton C. Olds, one of the volunteers. Inquiries about Planned Parenthood are readily answered by the receptionists, but medical questions are referred to medical personnel.
