      Children shouldn’t snack while they’re out trick-or-treating.  Urge your children to wait until they get home and you have had a chance to inspect the contents of their “goody bags.” To help prevent children from snacking, give them a light meal or snack before they head out – don’t send them out on an empty stomach.

Prior to this session the Committee exchanged correspondence with the Company as to the agenda for the session. The Company advised that it was working on proposals (counter) for articles 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 20, and 24, and that they wanted to reopen the previously tentatively agreed (TA’d) to Article 7 to address language specific to the Technical Instructors.
