" '"i '"l **BL!iyfc;i;;i;»»!:;»iiii 1 SKi .M Working together is fun for Ray Salter, left, and Tony Brouillette. By ALICE BROCKMAN (Staff Writer) What has your big brother done for you lately? If he is a member of the Big Brother organization and you're his "little brother," then the two of you have probably gone camping, motorcycling, golfing, fishing, bowling, checking out your (whection of baseball cards, or just working together in the yard. Big Brother has been in Galesburg one year now, and so far, it has successfully matched 11 men with boys whose fathers are not present in the home, either due to divorce, death or long- term hospitalization. Its purpose is to help boys who need the attention of a man, someone to take them to Little League games, talk to them about some of their problems which aren't easy to discuss with mothers, and just be a friend to them. Generally, the boys, who are between the ages of eight and 16, come to the attention of Big Brothers through their guidance counselors in school because the couselor believes the boy would benefit from the friendship and guidance of a mature man. Phil Ulm, executive director, credits much of the success of the matches to the extensive application period which insures that the man and boy are compatible in personalities and interests. Mrs. Shirley Brouillette, whose nine-year-old son, Tony, is the little brother of Ray Salter, is very happy with the match because she said Ray has just the qualities that Tony needed. To see Tony and Ray together playing golf or spading in the garden, it's obvious they have a rapport, and both eagerly look forward to their visits, about once or twice a week. What Tony really loves, of course, is playing baseball with Ray and maybe some of the neighborhood boys. That's hi? favorite sport, he says with a grin. Mrs. Brouillette has been so impressed with the program, she hopes her seven-year-old son can be matched with a big brother when he is eight. One sibling problem does arise in most families, since Reside in Salt Lake City Mr. and Mrs. Jack Richard Moore, who were married June 9, reside at Salt Lake City, Utah. Wedding vows were pledged at the Montview Boulevard Presbyterian Church, Denver, Colo., as Dr. Albert Fay Hill, read the double ring ceremony for the bride, the former Nancy Davis, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Merrill Davis, Englewood, Colo., and the bridegroom, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob A. Moore, South Lake Storey Road. Mr. Moore, a graduate of Galesburg High School and Monmouth College, is employed with AC Division of General Motors, Salt Lake City, Utah. when the pair is out together, others in the family, especially boys, feel left out. But as Mr. Ulm pointed out, the onento-one relationship of the match is more helpful to the boy. The mothers try to do something special for their other' children when the big and little brothers are together. The organization hopes to encourage more men to participate because there are many boys in Galesburg who need a big brother. It is difficult, Mr. Ulm said, to attract many men since they are tied. up with their own children and jobs, but part of the problem, too, is making the com. muniity aware of the group. Mrs. Loy Bacon, whose son Gary, teamed with Roger Lofstrand, is enthused about the progress her son has made since meeting Roger two months ago. Gary was a boy who felt he couldn't play baseball as well as other kids, and he gave up so easily. But Roger has so much patience, that Gary has showed a tremendous improvement — even his guidance counselor ait school noticed it. In fact, Roger has made a big impression on the Bacon family. Mrs. Bacon's fifteen- year-old son says about him, "Gee, he's cool." He has a motorcycle and often takes Gary out for supper. Sometimes they take Roger's St. Bernard, Olaf, to Lake Storey. He says he gets as much enjoyment out of the relationship as Gary does. For men without children or who have only daughters, the program gives them a chance for good times with a boy, such as one man who has two daughters, both of whom despise camping and fishing. Well, about once a month, he takes his little brother and they try their luck fishing. It's pure pleasure for the man to have someone he cares about to share his hobby, and at the same time, he is providing a healthy influence for a boy who will benefit from .the personal attention. As in the words of Roger Lofstrand, Big Brother organization is great because it gives a man a chance to make a contribution to the community and at the same time, have an instant friend and little brother. Select Weddinsr Date Miss Sharon Pepper and Ger aid L. Haffner, whose engagement was previously announced have selected Saturday, July 7, as their wedding date. The ceremony will be at 7 p.m. at the Avon United Meth odist Church. All friends and relatives are invited to the ceremony and reception to follow at the church. The bride-elect is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Pepper of near Roseville and her fiance, the son of Mrs. Floyd Haffner of Walnut Grove and the late Mr. Haffner.
