O THE OTTAWA HERALD 9 Tuesday, October 31, 1961 Need Coordination In Youth Projects By BILL D. SCHUL "When those boys arrived at the camp, it was like a group of pilgrims suddenly coming upon the Promised Land." Leon Petterson leaned back in his chair and cupped his hands behind his head. "You see," he added. "It is the first time these kids have ever been able to attend anything like this." Petterson was in charge this year of the Topeka Rotary Club's camp for boys project. Assisting him in its direction were Charles S. Fisher Jr. and club president, Dr. Homer L. Heibert, who is a regular dynamo when it comes to promoting worthwhile youth activities. This project was started several years ago, and the Rotary Clubs in Garnett, Emporia, Howard, Burlington, Elwood and Junction City are now participating. Towards the end of the school year the organization sent out letters to the schools asking them to list boys 11 years and older who could benefit from tho camp and who otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend an activity of this nature. From the lists supplied, members formed teams and called on the families, explained the project and asked them to allow their children to attend. This year there were more than 100 recruits. A week was spent at Camp Jayhawk, the Boy Scout camp located at Ozawkie, 30 miles north east of Topeka, where there were food galore, swimming, fishing, boating, rifle and archery ranges, studies in nature and handi- crafts, to name only some of the activities. Now. to focus the picture a bit, these kids were not among the number who each year attend Boy Scout or church camps, take part in little league baseball, visit the swimming pool frequently, go fishing with their fathers and vacationing with their families. The Rotary members weren't worried about this group but rather, the forgotten ones, the ones that society has i tendency to overlook until, in re bcllion, they make headlines. Successful? You bet! lessons were learned in fairness, honesty and in giving in order to receive But, demonstrating the foresighl which has made them successes in their fields, these men wanl to do more. They realize that the contact has been important | to the boys but that someone has | to hold onto their hands for longer than a week. So they are asking, "What can the Rotary Club do as a continuing program for youth?" By way of finding out what the j various services and civic clubs, women's groups, veterans organizations and local unions have been doing for youth we have been sending out questionnaires asking what projects have been carried on, with what success and if there would be interest in other projects. The results, coupled with the other questionnaires which asked of those dealing with children what the problems are and the possible solutions, should allow us to say, "Here are the problems in your community, according to those who know, your police, min- SP1DER WEB — A steelworkcr carries a piece of slccl across dome of building at Manhattan (hat will house nuclear reactor at Kansas State University.

Here is what is being done by the various groups in your community. Now, if you are interested, perhaps your club could contribute to the overall program by taking on one of these projects." Although many clubs have youth projects, there seems to be a need for representatives of these I groups to sit down together and outline what their goals for the community are for a year, five years, and then decide how they can best work side by side in their realization. Nixon Urges Primary Fight SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP)-Fight it out in Ihe primaries, Richard M. Nixon advises Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller and Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz. The former vice president and losing candidate for the presidency last year said Monday night Rockefeller and Goldwater should "clash in primaries" to determine who would be the best can- i didate to challenge President i Kennedy in 19fi4. j Nixon, \vho is seeking the Republican nomination for governor of California, has said he will no campaign for the GOP presiden tial nomination. He declared Mon day night he would not enter an primaries in 1964. He addressed an overflow crowd of 8,000—more than 1,5( ! diners at $100 a plate and a ga US Needs Leadership That Won't Belittle Us, Says Ike of ^ the Syracusc War Memorial Auditorium. SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (AP)- i'ormer President Dwight D. Ei- enhower says the United States needs leadership- "which would never belittle the United States" and "never extends a welcome o such an outlaw as Red China." I am sure that I voice the letermination of all — regardless of party — in saying that we will itand by the President as he de votes his energies to defying the nternational bullies and protecting American rights and liber- :ies," Eisenhower said, in a ,peech Monday night. The speech climaxed a series of appearances by Eisenhower in jehalf of a Republican congressional candidate. Among other things, the ex- president (1) defended the sale of F86 jet fighters to Yugoslavia, saying the planes were obsolete; (2) said the United States has no choice except to test atomic weapons; (3) said the "century- old one-party (Democratic) sys tern is a calamity for the South." and (4) criticized big government with its "indiscriminate federal handouts" and "spendthrift programs." In his 9,000, Eisenhower drew on the loudest of frequent cheers when he called for "the kind of leadership which would never belittle the United States and thus dis may our friends and hearten our enemies, that stands steadfastly in all international councils for principle and right, and never ex- speech to a crowd ol lends a welcome to such an outlaw as Red China is today." ' Republican leaders were jubilant over Eisenhower's appearance in behalf of John W. Goode, the lone Republican in Saturday's special congressional election. Goode, 38, and four Democrats seek the seat from which Democrat Paul Kilday resigned last month to become a federal judge. Goode's chief opponent is Slate Sen. Henry B. Gonzalez, 45, who has the backing of President Kennedy and Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson. Sweet Industry Grows In Florida MIAMI, Fla. (AP)-One of the sweetest economic developments of south Florida is a sugar boom touched off when Fidel Castro's revolutionary antics cut Cuba out of the U. S. sugar market. American sugar men, and many former bigtime growers in Cuba's one-crop economy, arc building refineries and planting sugar cane in vast Everglades areas which for centuries produced little but sawgrass and snakes. Their $100-million sugar expansion program hopes to recoup losses which Cubans and Americans suffered in the Castro expropriation of Cuba's sugar industry. Eleven mills are cither in operation, under construction, or in the planning stage. Finland Joining Warsaw Pact? LIHUE, Kauai, Hawaii, <AP)~ President Urho K. Kekkonen of Finland sent his foreign minister home Monday to handle a Soviet request for a joint defense pact against West Germany. Foreign Minister Ahti Karjalai- ncn headed by plane today for Helsinki by way of San Francisco. The Finnish president stayed behind to complete his visit to Hawaii. He was to leave this afternoon for Los Angeles, last stop on his tour of the United States. The U.S S.R. called on Finland to join with it to thwart what the Soviets called a growing West German threat to use the Baltic Sea as a jumping off place for war. The move was seen as an effort to bring independent Finland in line with Warsaw Pact nations. Lots Of Beef SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP)-Th« largest salable livestock supply in five years, 45,700 head, was received at the Sioux City Stockyards Monday. Included were 11,800 stock calves, the largest October calf run in 20 years.
