Monday Evening, July 8, 1957. Former Hoosier Saves Derelicts of Skid Row SACRAMENTO, Calif. .(UP) — How do you have a skid row bum (or himself and society? Vern Zook, an Air Force veteran from Indiana, has come up with a new approach—put him in > business of his own.. "Work is the best therapy in the wo-ld," he said. "But with the work must go spiritual rediscovery. The skid row derelict must return to God." '. To prove his theory, Zook opened a restaurant run. by tramps for tramps. It was so successful. he opened a second in one of the city's better neighborhoods and is using profits to buy a house to ihelter his crew. He calls' his operation "Christian Service Enterprises" and holds regular Bible classes to help his men build new attitudes toward life. The difference between Zook's scheme and the conventional rescue mission is that it provides regular employment in an atmosphere of. understanding. The more common rescue mission, he says, emphasizes evangelism and provides odd jobs when available. When there are none, their skid row inmates depart with their earnings to buy a bottle. . Zook spent five years running such a mission in Stockton, Calif. Convinced that was the answer, he proposed his new approach to the board of directors, but they thought business and religion don't mix. "I believe you can't divorce the two," says Zook. His Sacramento experiment has lasted only a year now but things have gone very well. Customers show special interest in the workers. Zook and his wife themselves work up to' 16 hours a day and take out only $50 a week for themselves. His greatest problem is that some of the men just don't show up for their shifts. On skid row only one man in a hunderd fights his way back to be a useful member of society, Zook guesses. "But for the one per cent, we're willing to put up with the other 99." china at the last meeting of the Quester's club were Mesdames Jesse Briggs, Charles Hunter, John Segrist, Marion Gibson, Fred Me- Pherson and John Oaks, of here, and Mrs. Orpha Meade, of northeast of here.

Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Nine Charge Peron Is Plotting In Venezuela Diplomatic Relations "With Argentina Are Reported "Interrupted". BUENOS AIRES (UP)—Argentina and Venezuela "interrupted" diplomatic relations Sunday in a dispute over charges that former dictator Juan D. Peron is using Venezuela as a base for efforts to overthrow the Argentine government. Gen. Carlos Toranzo Monlero, the Argentine ambassador to Venezuela, was scheduled to fly hei'e from Panama, where he arrived from Caracas Sunday after the Venezuelan government ordered him out of the country. Venezuela declared Toranzo Montcro persona non grata two days after ordering Dr. Atilano Carnevali, its ambassador to Argentina, to return to Caracas. " Argentine Foreign Minister Alfonso dc la Ferre said diplomatic jrelations with Venezuela had been "interrupted". Diptom/Uh: observers here said interruption Ls just a step short of a complete break. Toranzo Montero delivered a note to Venezuelan authorities July 4 in which he charged Peron violated his asylum in Venezuela jy planning a coup against the Argentine provisional government. However, Venezuelan president Marcos Perez Jimincz told newsmen in Caracas the note had nothing to do with Toranzo Montcro's ouster. He said the diplomat was ordered to leave the country because his actions were "offensive to the dignity of the nation." Toranzo Montcro told United Press in Panama Sunday night he' presented documents to the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry containing "overwhelming proof Peron is leading sabotage and subversive acts from Caracas which for the Argentine people may cost blood."
