r Peace Corps No Joy Ride, Solons Say WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Hubert Humphrey, D-Mlnn., said last night he Imagined that "Communist groups would like nothing better than to Infiltrate" the Peace Corps. But Humphrey, who will Introduce a bill to authorize President Kennedy's Peace Corps,,said thero will be strong steps taken to "see that that doesn't happen." S6n. Alexander Wiley, jyyis., Vmo Is on the Senate FonflhRe- latlons Committee with Humphrey, called the Peace Corps a good idea, but he said It would be wise to "go slow" on the project. "This will be no joy ride," he said, "I believe it would be a serious mistake to shotgun ill- trained, ill-equipped ' students" around the globe. Wiley said he wanted to see the Peace Corps start out with a few hundred properly trained persons, and expand from there. Both senators spoke on a radio broadcast (heard locally and distributed to other stations around the country.) Humphrey warned that there Would be mistakes made in the program. "You must expect that once in a while someone will bobble. And there'll be. the right to dismiss summarily persons who do not fit in," Humphrey said. By ROBEftf PISfiR the Youth Peace Corps wfil not work If It Is a U.S. government project at the operational level overseas. that was the opinion yesterday of' Dr k Maurice L, Albertson, the man commlsslbned by. Congress In Its Mutual Security Act of 1960 to Investigate whether a "youth corps" of U. S. citizens serving Abroad In programs of technical cooperation Is advisable and practical. Dr. Albortson, 4.1, spoke here between sessions of the civil engineers convention, giving a preview of -his Colorado State University Research Foundation final report which will be completed May 1. One of his key ideas: that the corps must be an outlet for the tremendous force and vigor of widely diverse Institutions within our U.S. culture. — "OUR 'EXISTING institutions can do the job much better than any federal government program," said Dr. Albertson. "The only reason they don't Is because they don't have the money or the encouragement from the federal government." According to the foundation's research among thousands of college students, private industry, labor, foundations, surveys in foreign countries, special studies, and policy papers from individuals and organizations who have been working In development abroad, most nations would accept the Peace Corpsmen more willingly if they, came as part of Run Peace Corps favored DR. M. L. ALBERTSON a program identified with private organizations, industries, or educational institutions. Consequently, he proposes that the U.S. government give grants to universities for projects which they design and over which they have a wide range of discretionary control and give contracts to private orgarr::ations, .industries, and educational institutions to carry out programs initiated by the agency. "We might want to help some South American town with a power project," said Dr. Albertson by way of example. "We could contract with Arizona Public Service for a few of their engineers and send a half dozen corpsmen along with them to work wfth their counterparts In the town." "Or," said the professor, "we might send some corpsmen to aid a Jesuit missionary In India with an ag-' I project." HE SAIft he has already determined t! .• .c'irh aid to various ml-•'Caries, as long as It is not directed at something specifically sectarian, would not violate any part of the "-creation of church and state" amendment to the Constitution. Dr. Albertson speaks with great enthusiasm about the untapped potential of U.S. youth once they are given necessary training. "It won't be any vacation for them, though," he said. "It'll be tough. We have reason to be terrified if WQ don't follow the most rigid selectfon processes." Dr. Albertson will not recom- ment that corpsmen be given 'FBI clearances." Some other countries would just consider the Peace Corps too closely associated with U.S. officialdom. "We'll Phoenix, Sat., Aprlf'iu, i .••'Uoui; CITY M P ! f / * - ! <-.-•' .1,, IU (": * i*i 1 I fEJ The Arizona Refmbttc ft have other ways of determining ft young man's loyalty," said the research director. "Our big strength in this coun- | try," said the Colotado-based re-j searcher, "is the fact that we have a strong pluralistic society. Of course our corpsmen will not all speak in the same accents, political or otherwise. But that's good. That's a taste of the real U.S." HOW WILL authorities in Washington react to the Colorado research report? Albcrtson says he has already talked to R. Sargent Shriver, director of the Peace Corps, and won his support . . . "9fl ( O 1 Wa« U! «'>ton will buy those ideas," said Dr. Albertson. • • - • ^^^^••••iMWMi Congratulations to Frontier Gardens Electrical Installation by Gross Electric Go. 3136 M. 29th Ave. AL 8-8936 Best Wishes FRONTIER GARDENS Ori Their OPEN HOUSE ENGINEERING CO. 2727 North Central FRONTIER 'GARDENS profsefed with "BUILT-IN" TERMITE PROTECTION IY TFRMINIX World's Largest — Arizona's oldest 5235 N. 7th Sf. • AM 4-2277 to one of Phoenix 1 finest apartment houses FRONTIER GARDENS PLAN TO ATTEND THEIR OPEN HOUSE SUN.
