HOLLAND, MICHIGAN, EVENING SENTINEL of Ottawa County 4-H News By Willis S.

Ottawa County will have 18 delegates. Understanding the communi: cations process, understanding through involvement, and world understanding by relating the skills of "getting along" to people of other cultures will be the i responsibility of the delegates. !

The young people will receive training which will enable them to return to their local 4-H Clubs and take an active part in involving teenagers and adults in programs to increase their understanding of others. Increased emphasis is being placed on this "group action" in 4-H throughout Michigan. Professor Hideya Kumata of the MSU Department of Communications will serve as discussion leader for the delegates in applying the skills of commu- nication to world understanding, ! and relating these skills to peo- ! pie of other cultures. Human relations sessions will help the youth deal with their own feel- i ings and behavior concerning 1 family life and boy-girl relationships.
