' FRIDAY, AUGUST 29, 1952 TAMC.) COUJUBR newt FA8B 8EYBH JABM M K WSJ AND p KVIPUT Jack Duc/os, Osceo/a 4-H'er, Tells Of Experiences on Italian Farms Bjr JACK DIJCLOS 0««ol» 4-11 Club Member ^ Before i start my story, I will explain who I am and what I am doing in Italy. I am Jack Duclos, a 4-H Club inernbcr of Mississippi County for 12 years. This year I was chosen as one of SO boys and girls who are representing the 4-H Clubs o( America in foreign countries. There are five of us from Arkansas this year. The name o[ our organisation is Ihe International Farm Youth Exchange (IPVE). and its purpose Is to help create better world understanding between the farm peoples of Ihe world. We live and work with farm families in the countries we are sent to. On June 4. I left home on the first part ot the trip. I went to Washington where I met with about 60 other boys nnd girls for our final Instructions. We stayed in Washington for five days of orientations. We'attended lectures, classes, studied and got acquainted with each other. We had a very busy schedule and hart very little time for sightseeing in our nation's cap- llol, but when we did have a minute to spare we saw what we could. Some of us were not satisfied until we^ walked to the top of the Wash- Monument. Before we try A .-A "^=f ^-rf swimming In * lake near Rome that used to be the center of a volcano. After the week In Rome, ve. left with Joe DiPranco, ex-county agent from Ohio, and a member of the Italian Department of Agriculture who was to accompany us lo the farms. The girls were to stay in Florence for n month so that was our first stop. After the girls were settled we went sightseeing in Florence, one of the world's most beautiful cities. We spent most of the night looking around the city. The next day we said goodbye to the ( girls nnd headed (or Venice where :Dnve, Oeorge (Ihe other boy delegate) and 1 were to receive our in. C-slructioiis. They had not finished jour program and again we had to stay in Venice for three days Venice is the city built in the sea and i they have only bo.ite for ti-nnspor- •tation in the city, so I had my first' ride in a gondola. We were put in Jack Duclos hours so we were allowed to go ashore. Lisbon is a very beautiful city and after seven days of nothing but water we were all glad to , go ashore. They had an organized walk "lt""again"we wil'fhkve Vbe ! tOUr but mC5t of us waiucd "> •* W, because it is a lone xvav tt cn m "-° m ' *° «'e '""red the city Is only five acres. And each of the farms have been changed f/om waste lands to very profitable farms. Fifteen years ago on« of them was completely under the sea A levee was built and the water pumped out and as n result they have a very good farm. Italy fi less than the size of California and has 46 million people so they have to make good use of all (he land they can. Much of Italy Is mountainous and is not Rood for farming Three of tl<« Jlwl four farms I lived on bordered the sea. So It has been about like taking a vacation near the sea. One of the farms was n little different than the usual farm. It was a 13.000 acre farm thnt was centered around a factory The chief nroduct of this farm wns a rune that was used in the fnctory to make paper and fabrics. With the exception of thc cane, thc farm was secondary to the factory On most of the farms thev have diversified farmlnR much similar to the U.S. Their chief crops are wheat corn, rice, truck crons. watermelon*, frmt, and different kinds of hay. A"d fill of them have dafrv cattle This living on a farm 'for ten days then changing to another has Its ciiwlvantases as well as advantages. The btwest disnrivantnrte h packing and unnackine Even if r •ome cattle, n Is rather hot In Italy this time ot year so I got my light jacket and we were on our way. We had to travel by Jeep because It was Impossible lor a c»r to go where we did, We really went to the mountains. When we stopped you could see snow on the pe»ks. It was the first time 1 had ever seen enow In July. I was soon to find out. that my coat was not heavy enough, and while the rest of the people had top coats I r.l- moEt froze. I spent thc day climb- Ing mountanis picking flowers nnd looking at cattle. 1 enjoyed myself but. the next time f go to thc mountains I am going to take TWO Not very many people get stranded In a beautiful city on the sen nnd unable to have a good time but I did.

Excited Group We were an excited group of boys and girls when we went aboard the ship that morning. At noon our boat pulled out of the harbor. We all stayed on the top deck to see the Statue of Liberty nnd the city pass out of view. We wanted to see it as long as we could, because it was .to be five months before we r were to see them again. Our boat was the Italian liner the Vulcania so I got « taste of Italian food and hospitality right, away. It .was very easy to find someone, to help me learn some of the Italian language. We will remember those 12 days on the boat for a long time. We really had a lot of fun. We spent a lot of our time studying about our country, the country we were to visit and ite language. None of us was going to an English speaking country so the language was our main subject. We also had a lot of time for fun. We knew we had someone to thank for making it possible for us to be able to take a trip such as this one, so each night we would hold vesper services. And after each service we would spend about an hour singing.. Mnny of the people on thf boat would join in on our services and singing. We made quite n reputation for ourselves. We also held several square dances on the boat tor entertainment so we turned out to be quite ^an attraction. One night after a ^square dance we went on the top deck and started singing and did not stof until we were made to stop at 3 o'clock In the morning for disturbing the. sleep of the rest of the passengers. n-J' «»1*i lonfl itnlrn(! y °n the boat. The fifth day at sea we were to pass a group of Islands, so we got up real early to see land again. Although there was plenty of water look the city over. We walked — .^.j around the city in n group.

We finally stopped in 1 town on the Yugoslav border, in. the farm as I '- In a hotel in about 8,000 int overlooking the sea Arrived June 2Z It was on .Time 22 at 7:10 p.m. some old buildings that were de- many stroyed during the war. There were Ju „ some people living in them. We had ah Italian interpreter with us so we talked with some of the people. They wanted us to sing them a song, so we did, and afterwards they got some homemade wine and gnve us some to drink. Some of the boys wanted to stay and sing some more, they seemed to like the wine. But we \mnted to see the rest of the city, so we left for more sightseeing. The most Interesting'thing we saw was the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, and a park dedicated to him. After walking all around the city we returned to the bo»t tired and ready to finish our trip. Italy was to be my home country for the next 4',i months and I was well pleased with what 'l had seen. We arrived -In Naples the next day and had very little trouble getting through customs. And by noon we were well on our way to Home. We were met in Rome by the American Express representatives and taken to the American Embassy. All but eight of us were to catch a plnnc to their assigned countries so after the rest of us registered in the hotel we bid them farewell. By the end of the week every one was gone except the four of ns who were to remain In Italy (two boys and two girls). They did not have our program completed, so they told us that we were to stay in Home for a week. You can guess how that disappointed us, but being good sports we said nothing about it- and decided to sweat out a week In Rome. There are many things to see in Home, but we did not get to see very much because most of our time was taken up with appointments. One night we were invited to the American ambassador's house for a cocktail party. That really made us feel important. After the party we at- . tenti ' ;d a 5t > llare ther Interesting the group was :ct to see two ned to be below the PAO 'he most inter- for the sons and ' was the flying American people *.„ there was such All together there 'hem.

Trouble With Lannuag really enjoyed myself farm. The people treated me real swell. There were two Italian boys on the farm who were also studying agriculture, so I spent most of my time with them. On tills form my biggest trouble was the lang- a'mti 0 ' 16 "' * he bcys could speak a little (very Ilttlel Italian. So^th the help of my pocket dictionary we did okay. They very seldom work on Saturday afternoon In Italy so on my «rst week end they took me swimming in the Adriatic sea near Trlesta. There were some American soldiers there so I felt a little as if I were~ at home. Even though I dlrtnt do any work I 8c t plenty of exercise. My hotel was about two miles from the fnrm, and my means of transportation was a bicycle I also had to return to the hotel each day for dinner so I rode a bicvcle about eight miles each day. in'the village (here was less than 20 cnrs I made many friends on this farm and ha_(ed to leave, but after ten days I was scheduled to leave for another farm. So r said good bye to my friends and they gave me a case of peaches to take" with me and I wns on my way to new adventures. The first 30 days In Italy were to be spent on three different i7iT S ;, 0rl tne 5cconcl farm I staved with the people so I got my first chance to associate with the Italian people. The Italians se«m to like to have an American friend so it irasnt difficult to get nlong with them. Even the girls wanted to get acquainted. One girl 5B id she wanted to meet me because she hoped „ Amer'c?' g ° lo Italian . - .*,.. v ojjLrtn HHiifln and she could not speak English so I lost my chance to bring home nn Italian girl. But I have learned since that that is the .desire cf many Italian girls, to marry an American and go to America" so I still hnve a chance. All the farms I have been on jo far. have, been very large farms, ranged from 1.200- leave this farm a few davs*aoo so I Jiot parked and all ready to TO When they came after me lo take me to tlie next ftrm they chnnRert their mlnrls and left me'here so I had to t"ke my bass back to mv room and nnoaek. I djrfn't mind h«a»se I 1'ke it here nt thl< farm. Besides being a rood farm. II borders the sea and Is only 20 miles from Rome. This Is th» fh-'f. farm I have visited where I hid to depend on my Italian only. On the other farms they have had someone to su^ak English. There Is no one here thnt knows English well enough lo tnlk to so I was forced to learn thc Inn- mmee better. I had learned a littlV. but after two weeks of nothing but Italian only. I can talk with them about almost anything. I even surprised myself the wav I learned the language. I still sneak verv bad Itn-1- lan but they usually can tell whnt I am talnlnK about, nnd I can under- ftnnd it much belter than r can speak It. Uviiis with oeonle us I am you will learn to sneak with them or else, so I learned to sneak with them. Besides belie more fun it Is easier to n">t : , friends. Blrk to Rome After my time was un in north Itnlv, I received instructions to re- nort to Rome. It was a trip of about .WO miles ard it Is verv hot. in Italy this time of year, so I rhosc to return to Rome by night. I was taken to the train In the evening and I was lucky to net n compartment with 6 soldiers and one sailor I receive little news about America so I had plenty of questions to ask. The trains are verv uncomfortable so I got very little sleep during the night. As soon as I arrived in Borne I registered at the hotel, went to church, called nnrt reported to my leader, then went to sleep for the rest of the day. The next day r reported to trie Italian Department of Agriculture with my leader and they had planned to take us to the" farm right away. But Dave had gotten his instructions, mixed un and had not returned to Rome. After waiting for several hours for Dave, they decided to take me to the farm alone. When thcv took me lo my hotel to get mv bags. Dave wns in mv room waiting lor me. We both eot our hnus .and were off to the fnrm together talking about our experience. We had such little time together nnd cnlovcd sneaVing Enelish neain. so we" decided to met in Rome the next week end and finish our discussion.. T arrived in Rome about ten o'clock and Dave was there waiting for me. The first thing we did was to Bet our mall and read it. We spent the rest of the day talking and window shopping. We arc both Catholics so we decided to attend church at St. Peters. It Is the world's largest church and the most beautiful one I have evi-r seen. It stands nbove Rome as the Empire Stale building stands above New York and it is impossible to describe it. You just have lo see ft before you can have an idea of whnt. it is like.

At the appointed time and place, I arrived nnrt met with 12 people. All but four were under 12 years of age. The God Mother and I stood with thc doll while wnter wns poured on its head. And nfter the ceremony we hud a biff feast. Candy, lemonade, and watermelon for every one. We snt nt n table about knee high and ate nnd drank from play dishes. After the feast we bid farewell to the hostess ami happy mother (of thc doll) and left a successful pnrty. I have attended many parties and I guess I liked this one best. Including the one at the Ambassador's house. One-Thirrt Communist Now for a little about the Italian people, Italy Is about 33 per cent Communist, but all the people I have talked to so fnr, say that they hate the Communist- as much as I do. The Communists are mostly In the lower class party mid so far I have had very little association with them. Most,of the Communists arc very good at arguing and It is"very hard to change their minds. After a big argument with one he will shake hands with you and bid farewell, nntl the next time you meet him again he is ready for another argument. It Is a funny thnig about the Italians, it Is hnrd to find one that says If It wasn't for thc help they received the America. Some times they ...r. n^n and sometimes they are not. Th most surprised Italian 1 hnve seen was when I told him that thtre are no more cowboys and Indians of thc wild west. They get many American movies here and they usually base their opinion by the movie. The hope of most of the young Italians is. that some day he or she will get a chance lo go to America. As for the farms, they hnve very modern equipment ori the larger ones. But the smaller ones still use some very old methods of farming. Here, the women wrrk for less than the men, and the children for less than the women.
