American Legion Auxiliary Girls State June 7-13 HEIDIE KRAUSE On June 7th 300 Iowa girls in their junior year of high school will gather at the University of Northern Iowa at Cedar Falls for a week of practical application of Americanism and Good Citizenship at the Iowa American Legion Auxiliary Girls State. The purpose of Girls State is to provide citizenship training; to afford the girls an opportunity to live together as self- governing citizens; to inform them about the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of American citizenship, so that they may understand and participate in the functioning of their government; and to help them grasp the meaning of some of the responsibilities -which they must assume when they become adults. The entire program is a non-partisan, non-political attempt to teach and inculcate in the Youth of America a love of God and Country. To become a candidate for Girls State, each girl must have outstanding qualities of leadership and good citizenship, rank high scholastically and be physically fit. The sponsoring American Legion Auxiliary Unit pays a $55 fee for the girl and she in turn will make a report of her week, to the Unit. Heidee Krause, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert H.
