SATURDAY, JULY 31, 1965. IRONWOOD OAIIY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN Pledged For Construction At Health Camp A total of $18,000 In new pledges has been made by the banks of the Upper Penins u 1 a for construction completed at Bay Cliff Health Camp In Big Bay. S. M. Cohodas, Ishpeming, new buildings consultant on the Bay Cliff Board of Directors, so reported at the recent ann u a J meeting. Cohodas was commended by F. J, Haller, Ishpeming, board chairman, for his efforts in obtaining the major portion of donations toward the new dormitory building for boys. It includes 14 units, each able to accommodate seven children and a counselor. Each unit cost about $4,000 to build and furnish. In his report, Cohodas noted that the Houghton County banks have pledged the cost of one unit, with each of the following promising $1,000: Houghton National Bank"; Superior National Bank of Hancock and Merchants and Miners' Bank of Calumet. He said the balance of $l,000 was to be received from the South Range Bank and the Lake Linden Bank. One unit also has been pledged by each of the following: Delta County banks ($4,000 total); Me- nomlnee County banks ($4,000 total): and Iron County banks (4.000 totaU. The Alger County banks have pledged $1,000 toward a partial unit, and checks for $500 from the First National Bank of St. Ignace and $500 from the National Bank of Detroit also have been received bringing the total pledged or paid to $18,000. Cohodas told the camp's board of directors he was contacting the Union National Bank of Marquette and expected a favorable reply. He said he also anticipated a pledge from the Peninsula Bank of Ishpeming for the balance of one unit, that bank having already paid $1,000. Cohodas stated he bell e v e d that all the units of the present complex have been pledged, and he made a motion that Bay Cliff proceed with a second 14-untt building for the girls. He said he would head a committee to solicit all the banks of the Peninsula for pledges on the second structure. The board acted favorably on his motion anil authorized the proposal. In another report from Coho das. It was noted that the Ishpeming Rotary Club intended to launch a drive among all Upper Peninsula Rotarians to raise money for the proposed new building. A number of checks are presented to the board at the meeting. Among contributors were the Baraga County and Copper Country Shrine Clubs and the Houghton-Hancock Rotary Clubs John A. Vargo, executive director of Bay Cliff, distributed copies of the financial statement for 1964, Including a report on the two-week post-camp session which resulted in a net profit of $2,275.53. He said, "We are trying to build up a large enough reserve to finance the camp for the following season, since we can never be sure of how much money will be received.". Vargo reported on amounts received from various Peninsula counties to date this year, adding, "There are still many contributions that are not in, male- ing It hard to estimate what our financial situation will be for this year." He said the, camp still requires money to furnish its new fa'cilities and urged everyone to continue efforts to keep contributions coming in. He explained that only actual monies received are the financial statement, but he estimated that approximately $10,000 is donated annually in services, supplies and materials, particularly by personnel from K. I. Sawyer Air Force Base and various service clubs of the region. Haller summarized reports for the years 1959 to 1964, pointing out that the camp was almost NINE closed in 1959, due to lack of funds. He credited the improved current conditions and sharp increase in receipts largely to Vargo's efforts in acquainting people in the Upper Penins u 1 a with the work of Bay Cliff. He also made note of the fact that the new facilities atthecamp require additional water, and he reported that a new well has been drilled. Machinery and operators for the job were donated by the W. B. Thompson Co., Iron Mountain, for which Haller expressed the board's gratitude. Five new directors were introduced at the meeting: Col. Robert Hansen and Col. Pete Sianis, both of K. I. Sawyer Air Force Base; Russell Hoyer, Houghton; Dr. R. G. Jaedecke, Ishpeming, and Mrs. Judy Squires, Newberry. Offices and executive committee members serving Bay Cliff, all re-elected at the annual session are: Haller, chairman; William Redman, Ishpeming, and Willard Cohodas, Ishpeming, cochairmen; Dr. Goldle Corneliuson, Lansing; Roy Fletc her, Marquette, and Ted R e i s s , Houghton, all vice chairmen; and Maxwell Reynolds, M a r - quette, treasurer. Executive committee — Vargo, executive director; Miss Elba Morse, emeritus member; Robert Brebner, Edward L. Pearce and Kenneth S. Lowe, all of Marquette; Mrs. Thelma Flodin, Iron Mountain; Ogden E. Johnson and S. M. Cohodas both of Ishpeming, and Ray Pajula, Negaunee. All board members were taken on a conducted tour of the Bay Cliff Health Camp grounds preceding the annual busi ness meeting, and pncllholders made by the children were distributed to directors and guests. i administered by advisors, rorklng with supervising coun- elors qnd counselors; and it ncludes arts and crafts, na- ural science, music, dr a m a nd recreation. * * * in another report to the o a r d, Dr. Charles Fusili e r ummwlzed the dental pro•ram at the camp. He explained hat al'. of the children were p iven a preliminary examina- lon at the start of the session nd ;hat those requiring the most care were accommodated irst. He noted that as many 50 per cent of the youngsters ad never had any prior dental are. The services of Dr. Fusilier and rtis two assistants were made iossib!t> through the combined fforts of the Mott Foundation. he United Cerebral Palsy As- ociatlon of Michigan and the Michigan DepartmentofHealth's Dental Division, all of which 168 Children at Bay Cliff Camp Bay Cliff Health Camp in Big Bay accommodated a total o f 168 children this summer. Donald Place, education a 1 coordinator for Bay Cliff, told the camp's directors at their recent annual meeting that the intensive therapy program wa s conducted by a staff of eight certified special education 1 n - structors and four assistants. Bay Cliff also had the service of 11 student speech therapists and the!i supervisors from Nor them Michigan University i n Marquette this season. L o c a physicians served as consulting diagnosticians. Classifying the various handicaps found among the 168 campers, Place listed 129 with speecli problems; 53 with ortho pedic problems; 31 with a partial or complete loss of hearing 28 with remedial reading d i f ficultle?; 35 with retarded men tal development; two with cardiac problems; one who i s blind, and five children with only partial vision. Overall, the number of handicapping conditions re- fleeted among Bay Cliff children this summer totaled 284. * + * Since many children are mul ti-handicapped, they attend sev eral different theraphy classes Place pointed out. The classes are operated daily and last from 30 minutes to an hour and half per child, depending on in dividual needs. Of the 168 children receiving therapny at Bay Cliff this sea son, 100 did not have specia education services during the 1964-65 school year, the coordl nator stated. Only 62 received these services in areas where such programs are established in the public schools of t h Upper Peninsula. "This makes Bay Cliff very important in the lives of these children, as it is the only place they can receive the services they s o badly need, in order to take their place in society," Place commented. He also called attention o directors to "something new' begun at Bay Cliff this year Labeled the "Activities Pro gram" and intended as a mean of offering children addition a supervised instructional time, i IT'S PRICES! LARGE WHITE - ^ BREAD 2 <«aves 49' | V"W«'r« Famous for Our European Pastries" helped contribute up-to-d ate equipment for the program, Dr Fusilier said efforts were being made to carry out a follow-up program for child r e n , after tney leave^camp. Cooperation of Upper Peninsula dentists was to be sought in this regard. He also remarked that a den? list should be on hand during the entire camping period, since "it takes considerable time to establish a good relationship between children and dentists."

For every 1,000 Americans there were 14 serious offenses reported. The crime rate has increased six times as fast as the U.S. population since 1958. Thirty-seven per cent of the serious crimes solved by the police involved youths under 18 years old. This age group, comprising 15 per cent of the population, committed 43 per cent of property crimes. These and other crime statis- tics were published by the FBI in its annual uniform crime reports. Murder, rape, aggravated assault, robbery, burglary, larceny of $50 or more and auto theft are considered by the FBI as serious crimes for statistical purposes. * * * "The violent crimes of murder, forcible rape, aggravated assault and robbery recorded the sharpest increases In a number of years," the FBI said. But the sharpest individual increases occurred among the property crimes. Here are some highlights of the FBI report: —A total of 2,604,400 serious crimes were reported by police agencies throughout the year. —The sharpest increase occurred in the suburbs, where the crime rate went up 17 per cent. Big city crime registered a 9 per cent increase, rural areas 8 per cent. —The murder rate increased 7 per cent, forcible rape 20, robbery 10, aggravated assault 15, burglary ll, larceny 11, and auto theft 14. Police solved 24 per cent of the serious crimes by arrest, a decline of 2 per cent from 1963. —Arrests for all criminal acts, excluding traffic offenses, Increased 5 per cent last year, resulting in 35 arrests for every 1.000 persons. * * * —Nationwide arrests of persons under 18 for all offenses except traffic violations were up 17 per cent, and 30 per cent of all suburban arrests involved young people. —Geographically, the South led other regions with art 18 per cent crime increase, followed by the Northeast and Western states, up 14 and 13 per cent, and north central states, 12 per cent. —The ratio of police to population remained the same ai 1963, with 1.9 police employes for every 1,000 citizens. —Statistically, the crime rate breaks down into a murder every hour, a rape every 28 minutes, an assault every 3 minutes, a robbery every 5 minutes, a burglarly every 28 seconds, a grand larceny every 45 seconds and one auto theft a minute.
