contested e l - by hoard accused June Boston ! 211 for the 1964-63 fiscal yeear. five years ago. He referred to last April's municipal Friendly Town Works 2 Ways (Continued from Page 1) two weeks. Often conditions are such at ·the child's home that the adults do not have sufficient time to spend with each ·child. But during his Friendly Town visit he is the "big shot" with no brothers or sisters sharing his spotlight. He is the one being ''made over" and catered to. This kind of ·special attention does wonders for a ·child's sense of personal worth. Does Friendly Town affect any structural changes in society? Charles Cook, di- Yector of the Friendly Town program at the Community Renewal Society, has said that the program is being evaluated continuously in an attempt to answer this ·question COOK SAYS THAT the prime purpose of the program is not to integrate society, hut to give needy children of all kinds a ·summer vacation that they would not have ·except for the Friendly Town program. It should be seen as an opportunity to give a thild two weeks of summer fun. If there are attitude changes on the part of the black children and their families, 'and changes in the way suburbia views ·inner-city problems, and if continuing relationships are established between families of two diverse communities, wonderful, he siiid Until this year, the program was sponsored by the Community Renewal Society. "But bocause of the demand for greater control from the agencies, the society is performing a coordinating function. The greatest change comes from the personal contacts that are now possible w i t h the people preparing the children for their visits. The Palatine-Rolling Meadows area i.s working with the agency called the Kenwood Mothers Club. Visiting dates are determined through a discussion of what the mothers preferred ami what the area representative thinks would afford the host families the greatest choice. THIS YEAR THE children will be pick- ed up at the Kenwood United Church of Christ on the beginning day of each session. They will be returned to their homes two weeks later. Prospective host families may contact their church representatives for more information and application blanks, or may call the area chairman, Mrs. Betty Ginger, at 259-1188, if no representative is listed for their church. Participating churches and representatives to contact are: In Rolling Meadows, Community Church, the Rev. William H. Herman, 255-5510; Meadows Baptist, Mrs. Rose Greismeyer, 392-1312; St. Colette Catholic, Mrs. Connie Wilson, 259-3919; Trinity Lutheran, Mrs. Betty Coombs, 3926806, and Mrs. Carol Vessel!, 392-5694. In Palatine: Bethel Lutheran, Mrs. Betty Winsell, 255-3868; Christ Lutheran, the Rev. Roy L. Jeremiah, 358-4600, First Baptist, Church of Palatine; 358-4224, Immanuel Lutheran, 359-1549; St. Phillip's Episcopal, Mrs. Karen Grzesik, 359-1684, and the Unitarian Universalist, Mrs. Karen Houghton, 255-8911. Serving as host families also are members from St. Paul's United Church of ¥7 J · tiiCtUCCitlOfl »- . rrCSCnttttlOH Christ and St. Theresa in Palatine. According to Mrs. Ginger, "If you participate in Friendly Town, you certainly are giving a child a fun-filled two weeks, but the program actually works both ways. "Experienced host parents will agree, the benefits of Friendly Town to their families are immeasurable. You cannot give without also receiving."
