Blytheville Boy Found History All Around Him While in Rome By RUTH LEB (School Correspondent) In Rome "there was history on both side* of the street, and underneath you," This U an observation by Calvin Cwschtn, Jimlor at Blythevllle High School and son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Czcschln of 1530 West. Holly, who spent, two months In Europe this summer. Speaking to Mrs. i_,ucile Quell- malz's history classes this vreek, Calvin gave his associates a detailed account of his experiences during his trip to the International Boy Scout Jamboree which convened at Bad Ischl, a small Austrian town. He did not see as much of Europe as he would have liked, but enough to make him want to go again, he says. Sailing from New York harbor July 15 aboard the 8. S. Argentina (with an Italian crew aboard, he adds), the scout contingent hud its llrst good look at foreign soil when the boat slopped at Algeria lor one day. Here he discovered what the much talked of "Casbah" really Is. Hud Interview With Pope The youngster registers a disappointment with Italy, but cannot be precise about his feeling. While in Naples he saw Mount Vesuvius and Capri, and in Rome visited the Sistine Chapel, the Roman forum, the famous Romulus and Retnus statue, and had a private interview with the Pope at the latter's country home. He took special note of all the monuments throughout the country dedicated to Benlto Mussolini. "There was one on almost every corner," he observe, 1 ;. Touring Venice in a gondola would seem a unique experience for most tourists In Europe, but Calvin's sense of the novel was dulled slightly by his sensitivity to the sewage released in the canals. (He did not have to be told that Michelangelo was painter of the famous Slstlne Chapel celling and sculptor of the "David" which he saw In the city of Florence.) In Germany he visited Munich, Weisbad, and also Nurenburg where he saw the spot where the top 11 Nazi war criminals were hanged. Liked Paris Best It was all great, Ciilvln reports, but the place he liked the most was Paris. It seemed "pretty American" to him. and In addition, he wtus extremely Impressed with Notre Dame Cathedral which he describes as "really beautiful." The Arch of Triumph, Eiffel Tower and Napoleon's Tomb were "musts" on his sightseeing list, as was the Versailles Palace. The lat- ter was a pleasant surprise, for ta he says, "it was more interesting than I thought it would be." Whatever his expectations, he found the mirrored walls, the king's chamber with its solid gold fence about the bed, Marie Antoinette's room and the formal gardens all worth close Inspection. He sailed from Cherbourg aboard the S. S. Homeland (German crew this time) August 21. arriving August 28 in New York where his parents met him. Calvin was selected by the National Boy Scouts of America to attend the Jamboree, which takes place every four years. He came to Blylhevllle last spring from Warrensburg. Mo.
