vaccination of every dog four

rabies must submit to a series
of 14 immunization
vaccinations, and every year,
about 30,000 persons undergo
the daily series.
But many must do so simly
because the animal bit them
escaped or was not available to
test for rabies.
A physician only can
assume that the animal was
rabid and must recommend
that immunization be carried
out, the veterinarian said.
Many other needless
vaccinations result when the
suspected animal is shot in the
head, destroying the brain,
which is needed for a
laboratory diagnosis of rabies,
he explained.

Learning about government
and politics by working in the
statehouse or the state
headquarters of a political
party isn't quite the same as
learning about government and
politics in a political science
But in the past two years,
28 political science students
have had the opportunity to do
both through the political
science department's intern
Dr. Carroll McKibbin,
department chairman, said the
program was started to provide
"exposure to the practical sides
of government."
Both kinds of interns, those
assigned to state agencies and
those assigned to political
parties, receive three hours
independent study credit for
their practical experience and
additional readings and
research, McKibbin said.
But the internships also
provide part-time employment.
State government interns are
paid $600 for a semester of
half-time work. State party
interns work one-sixth time for
Assignments for the interns
have varied.
"One intern with the
Democratic Party did an
analysis of the impact that
lowering the voting age would
have on the chances of the
Democrats carrying the first
congressional district,"
McKibbin said. The study
showed that the high student
population in the first district
potentially could have
considerable effect, he said.
"The Republicans usually
have the interns keep a
scrapbook ... of the
Democrats," McKibbin said.
Other political party
headquarters interns have
written press releases, indexed
a book on Democratic Party
history, done routine research,
worked in various candidate

headquarters during elections,
attended fund-raising dinners
and county political meetings.
"With the presidential
election coming up this fall,
our two interns with the
political parties should be in
for some interesting activity,"
McKibbin said.
State, government interns
have worked in the budget
department, the Technical
Assistance Agency, the Office
of Economic Development,
personnel and the League of
McKibbin said the problem
with placing statehouse interns
is finding state agencies with
the money to pay them.
"Most of the kids we've
placed with state agencies are
highly competent and have
expressed an interest in a
career in state government,"
McKibbin said.
Most departments have
assigned interns to "single-shot
tasks" that would take time
out of the regular routine for
the other employees in the
department, he said.
Two interns in the Office of
Economic Development
compiled a book of
information on operations of
-various departments of state
But a number of students
have complained of being
bored, McKibbin said. "Still,
you can learn more than you
think just by being there to
absorb the operations of state
government," he said.
Only one former intern now
works for the state, but others
have turned down job offers to
attend graduate school or law
school, McKibbin said.
The political science
internships are part of a "trend
toward more involvement in
off-campus things, more kinds
of practical experiences,"
McKibbin said.
