(Career Scouts 3 Golesburo Reoister-Moi I, Galesbura, /> Saturday, Jute 2& 1971 3 By ALICE BROCKMAN (Staff Writer) Neither fain, nor fog, nor mud could keep ft Girl Scouts front having fun and learning how to tide horses at the Boots and Saddles Camp at Piper Hills near Alpha, the past two weeks. The camp, first of its kind for the Mississippi Valley Girl Scout Council, was directed by Mrs. Joseph Hennenfent, New Windsor, whose family also provided the 12 horses. The camp, was divided into two sessions, with 36 Cadet and Senior Scouts, ages 11-17, earning their Horsewoman Badge each week. Sixteen girls from Galesburg participated. Those attending the first week wire Wendy Lou Fitch, 4» Johnson St.; Cindy Gunther, m Willow Lane; Deborah Hunter, 11* Bateman St.; Robin Telle, 408 Kings Canyon M; Mtehele Bird, Sunset View, Rt. 2, and Gale Settett, Lake Storey Rd. The second week campers were Rhondrfiiwson, 124 iiktt- ana Ave.; Carole and Loretta Reagor, 1578 E. Main St.; Barbara Hathaway, 959 S. Cedar St.; Roxanne Jensen, 1488 Conger St.; Brcnda Lee, 1026 Beecher Ave;; Ruth Aydt, 903 S Janice Mueller, Aledo, has learned how to take care of Lightning, a pony, this week. Joe Hennenfent Jr., one of the instructors, paired up each girl with a horse, according to size. Whitesboro; Shelley Bowles, 1211 8. Seminary St.; Lorie Am Tucker, 1526 E. Brooks St., and Dawn Watiers, 1059 E. Berrien St. Mrs. Hennenfent was "thrilled at the progress the girls showed in learning, not only how to ride a horse, but take oare of it, as well." Most of the girls had not ridden before, but by the end of each week, they knew the proper way to mount and dismount, and they knew how to get their horses to walk, canter, and trot. Each week's session was concluded on Saturday with a horse show for parents. The scouts were pre* sented either an A or B ribbon on how Well they performed. Earn Badge Actually, Mrs. Hennenfent said, most people like to ride horses, but few know how to bridle a horse, or take care of it. So, in order to earn the Horsewoman badge, each Scout had to complete 12 steps, all of which lead to a general understanding of each phase cf horse manship. For example, one of their projects was to draw or construct to scale a model stall and tack room. They also had to make an illustrated booklet on the history and development of the horse, find out what the daily care of a horse is, name the principal parts of a horse, and discuss grooming, ailments, and feeding; team the safety regulations including correct dress and equipment, and finally, participate in trail rides and riding drills. One thing that really frustrated the would-be equestrians is that they couldn't make their horse do what they wanted it to do at first. Shelley Bowles, Galesburg, said she couldn't make her horse go fast enough. After Mrs. Hennenfent's son, Joe, showed them what to do and say, the only problem then was how to stop the horse. After repeated "giddyups," finally a chorus of *" whoas" would come from the corral area. Once the oral commands were mastered, the next step was learning which lead to use, which proved to be the hardest part for the Scouts, Mrs. Hennenfent said. The campers had a busy week. For the first three days, they brought a sack lunch, and stayed unitl 3:30 p.m. each day. The first day they gat acquainted with the horses, learned how to prepare the horse for riding, they took an afternoon trail ride, E**f day, as their skills pro* gressed, they took longer rides. (Thursday and Friday they camped out overnight at Piper Hills, and one of their highlights, was a horseshoeing demonstration by Mr. Hennenfent. He taught the girls how to clean out the horses' hooves, and most importantly, he explained why they should do each thing. For example, he told them that they should clean the horse before saddling him, otherwise, dirt gets imbedded in his hair and could cause sores. Friday, the Scouts Were divided into three teams, one took a breakfast ride, and prepared their meal halfway through the ride; the second a luncheon ride; and the third, a supper ride. Girls who were not riding |worked on their written projects for the badge. Mrs. Hennenfent, who has been a Girl Scout leader for 13 years, enjoyed the camp so much that she would do it again next year Apparently the scouts share her enthusiasm, judging by the comments. One even took the time to write the council, and said that before horse camp, she was considering quitting scouts, but now she realized just how much fun it was. (ill, 111 lillililws 1.1. V' m Moon Beam, born Monday evening, brought the total number of horses at the camp to 13. Mrs. Joseph Hennenfent, New Windsor, above, assisted by her children and husband, is the leader of the two week camp. r /C7 By HELEN HENNESSY NEW YORK (NEA) - Everything's packaged today — even people. You don't believe it? Then you haven't heard of the CleveJand- bosed Work Wear Corp., the largest makers, renters and maintainers of uniforms and career clothes — so big, in fact, that four years ago the Justice Department charged the company with controlling 24 per cent of the garment sales to the Industrial Laundry Industry by virtue of their ownership of 29 industrial laundries in the United States mostly by acquisition "Entering into a Consent Decree seemed to be the most prudent way to terminate this action," said Leighton A. Rosenthal, president of Work Wear, which we feel was highly unjustified and inequitable. "But I don't know that too many of us have ever beard of the government coming out second best in these matters," he added, "and rather than continue to involve executive time and legal expense we agreed to a settlement that our counsel eems to think was no worse than what we would have had foisted upon us were we to have taken this to court." Banks, service stations, insurance companies, utility com pparet ^jfirm panics, airlines, auto dealers, optometrists and beauticians are just a sampling of those people "packaged" by this company. Not Uniforms 'And, if pressed," said Rosenthal, "we can even outfit Elizabethan barmaids." So you can see why he prefers to call his ctothes "career apparel," not uniforms. jf^ackaffed jf^eopie REGISTERED NURSE WANTED For Director of Loco I Homo Health Agency REFERENCE and EXPERIENCE REQUIREP PUBLIC HEALTH EXPERIENCE DESIRED PHONE V.N.A, OFFICE COTTAGE HOSPITAl-343-4121 Monday thru Friday for Interview Appointment The company went public in 1961 and nothing but record sales and earnings have shown up in its annual reports since. Work Wear began in 1914 as an overalls maker in Cleveland, owned by Rosenthal's father who gave birth to the idea of renting and maintaining work clothes. It was an idea that paid off. Members A§sist With Floor Work Mrs. Edna Fields and Mrs Mildred Oakes assisted with the floor work at the Thursday afternoon meeting of the James T, Shields Woman's Relief Corps 121 Auxiliary to the Grand Army of the Republic meeting at the Eagles club rooms. Reports were given by Mrs. Hellen Johnson and Mrs. Thomas Sepicfi. It was announced the next meeting would be a school of instruction, starting at 9:30 a.m. and concluding with the afternoon session beginning at 1:30 p.m. Mrs. Johnson, patriotic instructor, read an article about the flag. Refreshments were served by Mrs. Marie -Hausman, Mrs. Marie Connors, Mrs. Gertrude Price and Mrs. Marie Spemader. Rosenthal claims pay off psycholog- Leighton "iiniforms" ically, too. "If a housewife calls a serviceman because of a breakdown in anything from an electric pump to a refrigerator, a familiar uniform will allay her fears of burglary," he said. It a company rents apparel from them, it is maintained in their 14 sewing plants and 31 laundry and dry cleaning establishments. And some of the women's apparel can be dressed up with accessories and worn outside the job. How do "packaged people" like being packaged? One secretary at a bank said, "I like it, You have more money to spend on after-work clothes yet you're sure you have something clean and trim to wear every day to work." Dr. Paul A. Fine, who has been on the faculties of both Rutgers and Briarcliff colleges and is now a consultant to Du Pent feels that career apparel establishes personal pride and dignity in people regardless of their job assignment, But Rosenthal' said it was hard to sell the idea of clothing rental to companies at first. "We sell uniforms," he said, "snd then convince them that it's easier for us to take care of them. And because it makes sense it works." But career apparel does help employes to respond with improved morale and relate to the company with a strong esprit de corps, according to Dr. Fine. However much like George Orwell being "packaged" peo- p'e may sound, Work Wear has provided clothes for Philadelphia firemen and Detroit police and reported sales of $129.9 million in March '72. And now, even Vincent Monte-Sano, presi- eop\ dent of the New York Couture Business Council, has been appointed president of Main Street Fashions, a division of Work Wear. And that adds class to the workaday world. Company-supplied career apparel is a big money-saver for those who wear it. As for Rosenthal—well—he doesn't wear the stuff. But those who do, make the sartorial splendor possible. Dr. Paul A. Fine, psychol ogist - sociologist, who has found that most employes not only prefer garments provided by their companies but actually prefer theai to career apparel they buy for themselves. Cindy Skiles, left, Cambridge, is learning how to ride bareback, since once that is mastered, it is easy to ride with a saddle.
