President Ford is looking for 20 outstanding young men and women to serve as White House fellows. The Jobs last for one year, pay up to $31,806 annually, consist of positions as special assistants to the Vice President, cabinet officers or principal members of the White House staff. Established in 1964, the White House Fellowship program, the brainchild of John Gardner, now head of Common Cause, is designed to provide a group of young people, aged 23 to 35, with "firsthand, high-level experience with the workings of the federal government and to increase their sense of participation in national affairs." To date 21 women and 161 men have been chosen as White House Fellows, among them Doris Kearns (1967-68), who helped Lyndon Johnson write his memoirs and now teaches at Harvard; Tom Johnson (1965-66), who returned to Texas with LBJ and became publisher of "The Dallas Times- Herald"; Jane Cahill Pfeiffer (1966-67), who's become the second woman vice president in the history of IBM (Interna- tional Business Machines), and many others. Applicants for White House Fellowships must be citizens of the U.S., and no employees of the executive branch of the federal government are eligible for the program except career military personnel of the Armed Forces. Applications from overseas candidates are acceptable provided these candidates can return to the U.S. for regional interviews at their own expense. Last year, 2307 young men and women -applied, and 14 were chosen. What President Ford is looking for are applicants with leadership, high motivation, and a commitment to the nation. The White House Fellowship program is directed by Bruce Hasenkamp, 37, a lawyer out of Dartmouth and Stanford, who took over in August, 1974. Requests for applications for next year's program must be postmarked not later than Nov. 10,1975. Application forms and additional information can be obtained from the. President's Commission on White House Fellowships, Washington, D.C. 20415. After regional selections are provided him, it is Ford who will choose the lucky 20. LMWF Life Expectancy Fat children have a lower life expectancy than those of. normal weight. Fat children are also more likely to get sick. One overweight boy in three and one overweight girl in five grows up to become a normal-weight adult. About 97 per cent of fat children are overweight because they eat too much. Metabolic disorders cause only two or three per cent of obesity cases. These are the conclusions of Dr. Kurt Schreier, who reported on overweight children at a recent pediatricians' congress in Hamburg.
