She just couldn't handle him anymore. In a matter of one week, the 13-year-old had assaulted his mother and her boyfriend and was caught sniffing glue. After his case was reviewed, he was placed in a boys home. He keeps in touch with his family but dislikes the negative things he hears are happening at home. An older brother is now in Juvenile Hall for sniffing glue and as a result of the glue sniffing, he has brain and kidney damage. When Glenn's mother calls, she tells him all of the gossip in the old neighborhood. His housemother at the boys home said most of the conversation is about who got knifed, who got raped and what the local gangs are doing. Glenn is not proud of his mother and resents the men she brings home. He wants a different image for a mother, one she doesn't seem to be able to provide. "All of her time is spent keeping herself looking desirable to men," said the housemother. "She's so caught up with herself that she seems not to care about her children." Much of Glenn's time at the boys home is spent trying to improve his life. He wants to put the negative things behind him and concentrate on the positive. The only family member he talks about at length is an older brother who went in the Marines and has made something of himself. Soon after his arrival at the boys home, Glenn took a paper route. He also helps his housemother with the second grade deaf children she's been teaching this summer. Other boys at the home also help but Glenn is the most effective. "He works quietly with them and doesn't tease or play with them like some of the other boys do," said the housemother. "He told me he wants a career where he can work with children."

Old Bikes Produce New, Expensive Fad Continued from First Page Neely have turned bike restoration into a science. "There is an aesthetic value involved, like restoring old cars," Pope said. "A lot of car collectors are getting into bikes." A newsletter California Balloon Bike and Whizzer News published in Huntington Beach, has a circulation of 400 and is growing, according to publisher Leon Dixon. (Whizzers are motorized cruisers that were popular in the 40s and 50s.) "Ten-speeds are junk bikes when you look at them as a piece of machinery," Dixon said. "They're too fragile for kids. "Heck, how can you expect a kid to deliver newspapers on those bikes? It's like riding a two-by-four with a foam seat. They were made this way because it's cheap and quick." Dixon said a bike collector can spend as much as (50 getting an old seat redone. Through the bike literature, experts like Pope can tell restorers which tire, rim and spoke goes on which bike. Pope suggests "The Social History of Bicycles" found in most libraries as a good beginning source. "I'm an antique dealer, a builder of nostalgia and a custom bike dealer," McNeely said. "I'd make more bikes if I could find the parts." McNeely struck it rich in San Jose where he found a shop that had bike frames from 1918 stacked eight feet high. "The owner was a pack rat," McNeely said. "He had tons of balloon tires. Going through his yard was like seeing an Egyptian tomb." Collectors and dealers search for frames, stock hubs, fenders, seats, springers, horn tanks, lights, bells and mud flaps any trinket item. "You've really got to know what you're looking for," Pope said. "Otherwise you're wasting your time." Indeed, those who have converted to the balloon tire bikes claim the simplicity is the key to its success. Without extra gears maintenance is simple which adds to longevity. "With regular care you really only need to buy one cruiser in a lifetime," McNeely said. 9 Retarded Hurt in Bus Crash Special tt TIM Tlnwi SANTA PAULA Nine mentally retarded men and women suffered minor injuries when the bus in which they were riding left the road , ran into an orchard and overturned near here Wednesday morning. The California Highway Patrol reported that the driver, Clara Gates, apparently was distracted momentarily and lost control of the bus, which was chartered to take 10 persons to a workshop being held by Ventura County Assn. for the Retarded in Camarillo. The housemother wants him to have the opportunity to attend camp this summer, "Camp will give him the positive experiences that seem to motivate him so much," she said. "And he'll contribute a lot to the other campers. Wherever he goes, he's always a participator, good at helping others." If Glenn is to attend camp, however, he will need help from the Times Summer Camp Fund. He can pay only a portion of the camp fee with the money hearns from his paper route. The Times Summer Camp Fund was established in 1954 to help needy younsters enjoy a week at camp. Camper-ships are provided through donations from Times readers. All fund-raising costs are absorbed by The Times, allowing each contribution to go entirely for camperships. Previously acknowledged .I261IM.2I Mr. and Mn. David E.
