INDIANA SECOND CLASS POSTAGE AT TIPTON, INDIANA 46072 Eh in aii To CROP Bureau Ted Ehman, 315 West Jefferson, was recently appointed to Indiana's CROP Speakers Bureau. He was guest speaker Wednesday night at the Madison County CROP kick-off banquet held in Frankton. Ehman first began seriously interested in CROP while in Haiti doing volunteer work. He and his father. Walter K. Ehman of Atlanta, spent two months in Haiti a year ago helping to build cisterns and facilities to store water during the rainy season. He learned about the CROP "food-for-work" programs and following his return to the states, has spent many hours traveling to various locations to tell the story. CROP is the Community Food Appeal of Church World Service and has a two-fold purpose: "to provide food and work to hungry, homeless and almost hopeless people in the world, and to rekindle the spirit of Thanksgiving among our people who "often take for granted the blessings which God has given us and which through misuse and waste, are becoming a curse." Mr. Ehman has been in strong demand by various organizations and churches to relate his experiences at Haiti and to show slides of the work and people there. He has presented his program in areas throughout Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois, Ohio and Indiana. He has been the kickqff speaker in several CROP county meetings.

A lack of understanding of law as well as a communication gap appears to exist between the youth of the community and those of high school which would develop a better understanding of law and the enforcement officer. The students at both meetings also suggested that the course would carry more impact and interest if local law enforcement officers assisted in the presentation personally. Stanley Herbert, special guest at the meeting and who will be assuming the office of Prosecuting Attorney in January stated that "youth are more interest­ ed in government and business today than in years past. They' want to know and to understand but adults are prone to let them remain in darkness." I do advocate a course or special training in the school so that these youth will know the score of what happens to those breaking the law." Herbert reminded those attending the Law Advisory meeting Judge Has Busy rtroom Cou Day Glenn * T. Boyer, city Judge, had a busy day in court Tuesday as he heard thirteen cases presented.
