4 - Thurs., Jail 30, 1964 Redlands Daily Facts CONGOLESE DUO — Jean Masamba and Simeon Lusala, Congolese students ot the University of Redlands, highlight the 13th annual Feast of Lights with Congolese carols. Congolese students at UR finish in 3 years Graduating from the University of Redlands this week with the completion of the fall se mester are Congolese students Jean Masamba and Simeon Lu­ sala. Both students come from Leopoldville, Congo, where they attended the American Baptist mission and Kimbase schools. After a short period of intensive language training at t h e American University in Washington, D.C., both students arrived at the University of Redlands to begin studies for the spring semester of 1961. By attending summer school both at UCLA and Redlands they have been able to complete their education in three years. Both students, talented in (be fields of music, writing and art. have been a great addition to the UR campus. Masamba and Lusala, singing Congolese carols, highlighted the 13lh annual P'east of Lights performance which appeared on television. Masamba also participated in two other Feast performances and is a member and soloist of the University of Redlands which is printed in French, English and Congolese languages. He also served as president of the UR Alpha Mu Gamma, national language honorary fraternity this past semester. After teaching a year in the Congo, these students came to the United States to gain addi tional educational training for the teaching profession. Simeon majored in Sociology and Ma samba in government. The African American Institute sponsored these students and they were given scholarship aid by the University, the American Baptist Convention, and many private individuals. Lusala and his family have already departed for the Congo where a teaching position awaits jhim. Mrs. Lusala has taken piano, English, and sewing classes while in Redlands and will be able to share her knowledge; with other Congolese women.

Recreation commission works on agreement The Ci(y Recreation commission met again this week to continue its work on the formal joint agreements which will eventually be presented to both the City Council and the School Board. The commission has been working on organizational plans for some time under tentative agreements of the two governmental agencies. The long-term objective of the commission is to develop a recreation program in the community which will utilize' all the resources and facilities of the school district and the city. Both Boards have now given the nod to a proposal that the recreation director, when hired, would be tied to the city as a department head. And it has also been tacitly agreed that the commission membership itself will be reworked when the program emerges from its present cocoon stage. This realignment would Include subtracting one councilman and one school trustee and adding two "at-large" representatives in order to give tbe commission a broader community base. Presently, the commission is made up of two councilmen, William Hartzell and Robert Wagner, two school trustees, A. R. Schultz Jr. and Richard L. Scott and Dr. William Klausner.

Also — In Color Susan Hayward "STOLEN HOURS" point out, for its foreign news coverage and news index but for its excellent reporting of local, national, and international news. While I have not made an actual count. I venture to guess that the percentage of New York Times reporters with Pulitzer Prizes and other journalism awards far exceeds the average of those from other newspapers. Until the Times initiated a western edition we subscribed daily to the Los Angeles Times. It is true that on the New York Times front page, or second through last for that matter, were missing such bits of "local and regional diversifies" as the lurid and gory articles displayed so prominently on the first page of the Los Angeles Times. It seemed to my husband and me that more and more premium space was being devoted to this cheap tabloid type journalism, and that we had to ferret out the truly important news given inconspicuous coverage on the inside page. Wc have lived in the East — I must "confess" to being a native New Yorker — and perhaps this explains my sense of outrage at what I consider a slur on, in my opinion, the finest newspaper printed. Yet it has been our experience that when wc want exact, well written, in depth coverage of ALL the news, the N.Y. Times has been the most successful in providing it Tbe short lived western edition supplied a daily flow of high level journalism into our home that we will sadly miss. Perhaps it would be a good idea for some of the western publications to take heed of the 85,000 subscribers to the N.Y. paper and try to raise their level of reporting so that eastern papers would have no incentive to cross the Hudson River. Mrs. Eugene Miller 1750 Pepper way March of Dimes campaign ends February 1 The month-long March of Dimes campaign to help those suffering from birth defects, arthritis and polio will end this Saturday, Feb. 1, it was emphasized today by Postmaster Daniel J. Stanton, Redlands area chairman. And he urged all of those not contacted in some other manner to return the return-addressed March of Dimes envelopes which were mailed to residents during the first week of this month. "Nobody's need is greater than that of the crippled child. Yet thousands of disabled American children are not getting the best possible medical care," the March of Dimes appeal declares. Mr. Stanton stated that "If you haven't sent in your March of Dimes envelope yet, it's worth doing. These children need help. And they need it now.
