The president himself will receive the conferees recommendations and speak at a dinner concluding the sessions. . The Denver conference will bring together about 80 persons from such fields as sports, education and, government It will be in the nature of a follow-up of a luncheon which Eisenhower gave in Washington last July 11 to get the ball rolling. Headliners from all branches of sports attended that White House meeting, and the general conclus ion was that American youngsters had shifted to an alarming extent during the last 25 years from ac tive participation in athletics to the role of spectators. And that situation, the consen sus was. has been a big factor in the increase in juvenile delinquency. It also was. blamed in part for failure of many hundreds of thousands of youths to pass physical fit ness tests in the World War II draft.
