FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 1951 THE REGISTER NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS Mt. Vernon Boys To Boys State JOHN T. PAGE COMMANDER OF MT.V. KNIGHTS TEMPLAR PERSONAL 4oe Donelnon Donald McCann Joe Donelson. son of M»';,«S Mrs. Frank Donelson, 1126 North street, and Donald McCann, son ot Mr. and Mrs. Everett McCann, 724 Kensington, juniors at M . Vernon hiKh school, have been selected by Jefferson Post 141, American Legion, in cooperation with Principal Art Milward to attend the session of Illini Boys State, which will be held in the Youth Buliding 1,/ at the State Fairgrounds, Springfield from June 24th to July 1st. Over 400 boys will be enrolled this year, chosen from among the junior students of Illinois high schools, for iheir outstanding leadership, character, courage, honesty, cooperative ability and scholastic standing. Joe is very active in the high school athletic program, taking part in both basketball and football. He was captain of the sefcond ^ team the past year. Donald was a member of the varsity basketball team last year and has been a class officer and a member of the student council. The purpose of Illini Boys .State is to provide citizenship training for Illinois boys, to afford them an opportunity to live together as self governing citizens and to become informed about the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of American citizenship in order that they may understand and r-) participate in the functioning of our government. The boys selected will live in a miniature state patterned after the state of Illinois and following Illinois governmental procedure as closely as possible. Boys State exemplifies the two party system, although they have no connection or reference to the exisiting political parties. The program is political in that it teaches the functions of political parties in our national life, and is entirely free from par• tisan propaganda. The two parties •re the_ Federalist and Nationalist. The citizens create the government units — city, county and state — elect officials and conduct the affairs of the government. They study government in action to stimulate the interest that all citiiens should take in respective government. Last year's Illini Boys State governor and other elected state officials will serve until the 1951 1 officers are elected and have taken *^ their oath of office. The morning hours during the week will be devoted to instruction. Joe and Donald will be required to atteno one of the special schools, law, peace officers, election officials, or civil service, which will run through Thursday. There will be 60 minutes of simple military drill each day for the purpose of teaching the various groups to move to and from the assemblies in an orderly manner.
