KOSSUTH COUNTY'S FAVORITE NEWSPAPER John Cordes Home From 2-Year Peace Corps Job John Cordes, son of Mr. and Mrs. John G. Cordes of Lakota, formerly Titonka area residents, returned to the United States Sunday, Aug. 13, after two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in India. John began his tenure in the Peace Crops in June, 1965. After a short leave at home, following indoctrination, he and his fellow volunteers went overseas, but were unable to enter India immediately because of the 1965 Indo-Pakistani conflict. In order to give the volunteers both a practical and an educational experience, they were placed on various agricultural projects in Israel. During the two months they spent in Israel, ample time was allowed for extended travel in the Holy Land for the further development of their new skills. Finally John's group was allowed to enter India. A one week "in-country" orientation preceded his first trip to Kota and his new home for the next 19 months. Kota is a small city in the desert state of Rajasthan in northwest India. While in India, John taught economics and physical education in the local college, worked with neighborhood youth clubs and helped to establish a poultry industry and cooperative association. He was also granted considerable vacation time and was able to see all of India and its environs. In early June of this year, his tour in India ended. After his termination had been processed he spent nearly three months touring the Middle East and Europe before arriving home. John said that he would do it again and described his two years in the Peace Corps as the best of his life. They have given him many opportunities to learn, to understand, to travel and to develop personally. He said he would recommend the Peace Corps to anyone who is looking for a challenge and an insight into the world of the not so developed countries.
