But Ed Worthington Resigns:

Guild Continuation Seen in 1958 Program

The announcement that the X-ray Training School of the Saranac Lake Rehabilitation Guild anticipates the admission of 32 new students in 1958 carries assurance of the continuation of the Guild, despite rumors to the contrary.

Plans were approved by the Guild executive committee recently for the admission of classes in general X-ray technology in January, April, July and September. These will be twelve-month courses including three months of instruction at Prescott House here and nine months of practical laboratory experience in affiliated hospitals in New York and Pennsylvania.

The executive committee also accepted with regret the resignation of Edward H. Worthington, Jr., as Guild technical advisor, effective January 1, and voiced tribute to his leadership in preparing handicapped men and women for skilled and well-paid employment. Mr. Worthington has been a member of the Guild staff since 1939 and was named technical supervisor in 1948. Supervision of the x-ray courses has been assigned to Edgar Perkins, R.T., who joined the Guild faculty in 1956 as instructor in x-ray technique and clinical laboratory practice. Leonard J. Bristol, M.D. is radiologist-in-charge.

The 2Oth class of General X-ray Technician trainees and the 78th class of photoflourographic operator trainees will be enrolled on January 8, 1958 Seven students are scheduled to begin training on that date.

The Photofluorographic Operators Class consists of two trainees from the New York State Department of Health, Division of Tuberculosis Control. They are Allen Sacks of Albany and Francis Weaver of Chatham.

The General X-ray Technicians Class is expected to consist of five students. They will spend 13 weeks in Saranac Lake studying basic courses in preparation for experience training of 35 weeks in the x-ray departments of cooperating hospitals. Students presently scheduled to begin training in the one year general x-ray technician course are George Husinger of Harvey's Lake. Pa; John M. Lutchkoff of Buffalo; Alfonso Losciuto of Brooklyn: Edward Gibbs of Syracuse; and Earl Bobar of Cohoes.
