Recall Agony, Ecstasy Of Being 17 Years Old Haven Woman To Teach Here Jolene Ruth Albright, a May, 1971 graduate of Kansas State Teachers College, Emporia, will be a kindergarten teacher at Graber School, USD 808. The daughter of Mr. and Mrs, E. V. Albright, Haven, Miss Albright was graduated from KSTC with • bachelor of «d- ence in education degree. NEW YORK - At the age of 17, Joan Baez fell in love . . . Shirley Temple Black looked forward to the end of World War II and gas rationing . . . Colleen Corby was a successful model who spent most of her spare time with her mother. Eleanor Holmes Norton was inspired by the birth of the civil rights movement and "felt very black," and Sharon Percy Rockefeller suffered terrible fears that she wouldn't be accepted at Stanford University. These five well-known women recall "the agony and the ecstasy" of the growing-up 17th year in a feature on "When I Was 17" In the October Seventeen magazine. Their recollections range from a beautiful graduation ceremony to subtle and obvious discrimination. Joan Baez JOAN BAEZ recalls that peo pie liked her secretly. The problem was that she was "unconventional." As she explains, "The unpopular students were Mexican, but I couldn't be Mexican because I didn't speak Spanish. Yet I couldn't be one of the popular white kids because I was too Mexican- looking. There were a whole lot of things people called you." But at the end of her 17th year, Joan "fell in love for the first time . . . that wonderful feeling when everything revolves around that one person. SHIRLEY TEMPLE BLACK, the child star who retired at 22 and is now Deputy Chairman to the U.S. Conference on Human Environment, graduated from Ugh school In June of 1945. "V-J day was to August 1 of '45, so the war was almost at an end, and we were looking forward to all of our firends, very close friends, coming back . . And we were looking forward to the end of gas rationing and butter rationing and the meatless Tuesdays and all the things that were part of the war years." SHARON PERCY ROCKEFELLER, daughter of a senator and wife of a promising West Virginia politician, writes that when she was 17, "It seemed my whole year was focused on which school, which college I would go to — or get Into." The day of the college boards, she was "terrified." "That 's a sort of unfortunate torture that seniors put themselves through, because there are many schools for one person ... not Just one school. I think it 's a ridiculous i attitude, but that 's how I felt Shirley Temple Black then, that I had to prove myself by Stanford's acceptance." COLLEEN CORBY, recalls that "I was my mother's whole life ... I was doing things she had always wanted to do." Colleen's mother, however, had been brought up to think a girl should get married right after high school, and began to press Colleen that way too. But "I can support myself," Colleen says. "I'm just as feminine as I would be as a wife who didn't work." ELEANOR HOLMES NORTON, Chairman of the New York City Commission on Human Rights, remembers that when she was 17 the Supreme Court announced its school desegregation decision. "I re- remember believing that the world literally had changed ., Nobody ... has been inclined to hold my sex against me," she adds. "I wish I could say the same about my race.** By DAVE MILBRADT Hays High School HAYS — Jesus is alive and well and living in the evangelical spiritual fervor of a growing number of young Americans Including those who have found their way info "The House of Hidden Manna" at Hays. The message of these young people who pattern themselves after Christ's disciples of many years ago is not so new — In fact it has changed little in 1, 900 years. Because of (he posters on the wall and the inexpensive furniture, "Tlt c House of Hidden Manna" is obviously not like the average church. The House differs not only in appearance from normal churches, but it also differs. In atmosphere. There is a definite atmosphere of casualties! and friendliness. There are people, mostly young, rapplag about Christ, playing guitars, singing gosusl songs, and studying Bibles. The biilding is called "The House of Hidden Manna" because, as Vaughn Aeschelman said, "Jesus is the bread but it is hidden from many people." The House is open every Friday and Saturday night from 7:30 to 11:30 or later. Through the House, the Jesus people hope to offer a place for the youth and others to rap and ] hear about Jesus. The Jesus people also give away free coffee and cookies to those who are hungry. The House is not the only place that the Jesus people carry out their ministry. Some go downtown and hand out free papers while others "tell the good news" on the sidewalk. Also they can be seen witnessing for the Lord in the schools. Not All "Freaks" Many of the Jesus people are not the sterotyped "freaks." They do not all have long hair and they were not necessarily on drugs before they were •saved." The ages of the people in the group at the House range from grade school to college age and they believe that you are never too old or too young to accept Jesus as savior. One of the main foundations of their faith is the Bible. "The Bible is the greatest book in the world. Every word in it is the truth," said Aeschleman. He used to be a violent revolutionary and a drug user. Now he reads his Bible daily and "works for the Lord." Vaugh behaves that all men are born evil and unless they are forgiven will go to hell. "Even though a person is saved it does not mean that he is better than anyone else. It onfly means thtt the Lord has forgiven his slas," he added. Vaughn also said that he believed that acid and marijuana and other drugs take the user on "satanic trips." He believes that God has a plan for his people. Aechleman said that there will be a second coming and the Lord will separate the good from the evil. The believers will populate the universe and the non-believers will be thrown into a lake of fire. Jeanie Webster, a Jesus person from the House, summed up her belief with a scripture quote from the Bible: "Jesus said, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father but by me.' " Many Hays High students find it hard to believe the "Jesus trip." Some find it hard to believe that it is sincere and others think that if is a cop-out 'rom reality. Spiritual Addicts "They are just becoming spiritual addicts instead of drug addicts. Even though it Is not necessarily bad for them It might not be good for me. I Just wish they would not try to push it on people," said Anne Rice. At the House Jeanie referred to this when she described Jesus as a gift. "The gift is so good that we want to share it with the people we love," she said. Scott Munson remarked, "I think they are more sincere than the average churchgoer. They seem to feal their religion and live it." Scott also said he thought the worst thing about the Jesus people was that they didn't seem to care about pollution, overpopulation, or government. "They seem to be too busy saving people to help mankind. Besides they believe that when the second coming happens, air pollution will n o t make any difference," he added. The Jesus movement is not only in Hays it is also sweeping the rest of the country. With its records, posters, buttons, and bumper stickers the movement may appear to be a fad. The Jesus people, however, believe mat it is here to stay. They think that it is the "greatest spiritual revival the U.S. has ever experienced."
