Fences along our main entrances are in need of repair, grass plots are overgrown, vacant store fronts are in need of paint and their windows need washing. An Adams Help Corps could accomplish these various things which would help tremendously the appearance of Adams but of course it is asking a lot to ask how and Planning Boards and the Se-'about all the little ones, such as lectmen.

Gale Moser Soldali Mr, and Mrs.' Peter Moier and Uncles ALONG THE LINE of keeping I youths busy for their own good [and to give them experience at ;the same lime, I'd suggest something like the President's 1 Peace Corps. How about setting up an Adams Help Corps? I visualize this as a group of willinng helpers, boys and girls in their teens with a little lime and energy on their ihands. This group could be organized into work parlies this summer operating much the same as the old fashioned workbee, or like I the Amish barn-raisers of Penn' sylvania. The value of such a group would be demonstrated in such cases as was outlined to the Se- goodly number would, my nexl suggestion would be to business men to kick in a few dollars every once in a while to a func to help provide the necessary equipment and paint and to pro vide for workparties, cases of soda and potato chips to take on the job with them. * + * I BELIEVE that in the Interest of town appearance and rehabilitation, which after all will help Pilgrimage Set ie owner, •- f give per-] For Tomorrow provide the paint. No harm asking. THIS HELP CORPS would not be intended as "the" cleanup crew for Adams. Householders and property owners should all do their part. This suggestion would be for cases where owners can't do the work, can't pay for the work to be done, or for cases where work needs to be done for beautification but no owner can be found. Will youth volunteer for such work? Nol all youth will volunteer but a month ago when Roy Carpenter, retired veterans agent, decided to lix up another old cemetery, a number of Explorer scouts volunteered to help him. The job was delayed by Roy's hospitalization but will probably be done before Ihe summer Is out. Tiiat's one example of en- ttnisiusm. There would be no pay for the youth volnteering except the joy and satisfaction of doing a good job to the benefit of the lown, and perhaps a soda or two while at work. Before anybody can really pick up the idea, we'll have to have RII indication from Ihe town's youth that they might be interested in forming an Adams Help Corps. To that end, I'll invite interesled teen-agers to drop in Monday or Tuesday at the Transcript office and sign-up. If there's enough interest shown, I'm sure town officials will lend Members of the Third Order of St. Francis will have their annual pilgrimage tomorrow to the Two Pastors Plan Dialogue Sermon At Union Services Standby Donors Donate Here In Blood Crisis In response to an appeal from W .B.
