2B Ogden Standard-Examiner, Wednesday, October 6, 1971 S. Ogden Hears Halloween Party Plans SOUTH OGDEN — A big Halloween party at 'South. Junior High gymnasium for children 12 years old and younger may be one answer in keeping small fry off city streets Oct. 30, Roger Corbridge of 'the South Ogden Jaycees told the City Council Tuesday. He spoke of his concern over increasing perils youngsters face in trick or treat ventures Halloween. He urged fte City Council to help sponsor the party and pay some of the expense, the amount as yet not figured. The concept is endorsed, he said, by School Principal Vernell A. Bench, the police department, LDS stake presidents and bishops, the junior high PTA, local Kiwanis and Lions clubs. The clubs would provide manpower to assist at the party and dean up the gymnasium, Mr. Corbridge said. He read newspaper clippings of stories reporting small children were subjected to unkind acts as they solicited door-to- door Halloween for candy and other goodies. They are also potential victims of traffic, he added. If each organization and the city helps out by sponsoring the party, the children would be better off in a supervised place, Mr. Corbridge said- The night's program would include movies and cartoons furnished by the Country Club Theater, a carnival booth, fishing pond, candy gifts and a spook alley for those in costumes. "You might get a larger crowd than you anticipate," said Mayor Harvey R. Hegstrom. Jaycee Ken Ahren said the party could not be limited to South Ogden children only. Councilman Rulan D. ;Wardle said parents would "wing their children to the schoo'.and help with the supervision. *The mayor commended the Jaycees for their "forward look" and suggested the event be tried one year but he said the Jaycees should determine what city involvement is needed in dollars and manpower. Councilman Thair Blackburn disagreed ; . with the party idea, contending that parents now put money out for their children and "I'd rather not have them regimented in any way."
