Many Were Delinquents J. W. Peterson, a Dallas businessman who worlcs with the club, said the idea grew out of a discussion of child delinquency. Many of the men themselves had been juvenile delinquents. The group concluded, Peterson said, that juvenile delinquency has its roots in the .absence of some of the little extra pleasures in a child's life. They kicked around the idea of contributing a little money into a fund for some child who didn t have much. Warden Luster P. Goliaher suggested they work through a recognized agency. They picked the Salvation Army. Army Maj. Kenneth Moss rec-j ommended Bruce, then 9, a well-! mannered child who attended i church but needed some financial help. Met Sponsors So happy was Bruce with the; YMCA membership the money got] him, as well as new shoes and. clothes, that he wanted to meet his new sponsors.

Two Oldsters Recuperating After Ordeal in Wilderness VANCOUVER, Wash. W—A couple of perky oldsters who defied the wilderness for a week on a can of beans, a bit of jelly and a small packet ol powdered milk are recovering from exhaustion and hunger in a Vancouver hospital.

They had been given up for dead. •Hiree woodsmen found them. They were brought back to civilization yesterday by a stretcher party which hacked four miles through the.forest growth and waded waist deep in icy water. Attendants said the two men were in "pretty good" condition. When the strether- party reached them, Allger refused at first to ride. He tried a few staggering steps, however, and gave in. "We couldn't have made it through another night," Dickens said. He and Allger were grimy, bearded a'nd brush-whipped when found 8a,turday night by B. 8. Berry at Vancouver and Al Robbins and his son Morton of Woodland. "When I saw their red hats I knew my prayers had been answered," Dickens said. Allger was sitting motionless on a rock. Dickens, who had injured his leg, was lying under a fir tree. Al Robbins thought they were dead. "Then," he said, "I saw one of Allger's fingers move." Berry hurried out to seek aid. The Robbinses stayed with the two exhausted men, giving them what food they carried and tending fires to keep them warm through the night.
