Youth Gives Account Of i°« n 6 «« m « B of _ . __ ... .. Bancroft Gets Trip To Washington scholarship BY ERVIN ROOT I happen to be one of 83 high school juniors from Iowa selected by Rural Electric Coop to go to the nation's capitol this past week. We 83 from Iowa, along with more than 800 youths from 22 states, spent the week seeing sights, meeting congressmen and generally having a good time. We gathered at the DesMoines airport and after orientation boarded a chartered United aircraft at 11:30 a. m. and landed at the Washington International airport at about 2:30 p. m., Iowa time. We stayed the entire week at the huge Marriott Motor Hotel, which housed most of the 800. Monday eyening was reserved for a congressional dinner at the motel's luxurious Chesapeake Room. Iowa's senators and congressmen spoke briefly. Tuesday was the first full day of touring. First we toured the Capitol building, where we were able to enter the floor of the House of Representatives, something the ordinary viewing public is never allowed to do. After tours of the Supreme Court building and the Library of Congress, we had lunch in. the new Sam Rayburn building. The afternoon was spent viewing the House and Senate in action. The Iowa group met for an hour with Senator Jack Miller as he spoke about government and answered questions. After dinner at the new Smithsonian building, we spent an inspiring hour viewing the Marine Drum and Bugle Corp., and the Marine Silent Drill Team as they performed their weekly tribute ^in front of the Iwo Jima memorial to America's fighting dead. Early Wednesday we toured the White House and then returned to the motel for a Youth Day program. The program was started and cut short when it was learned that the President would meet with us on the White House lawn. We were taken by bus and motorcycle police escort to the White House where the President addressed us on the value and future of Electric Coops. I was one of few able to get close enough to shake the hand of the President and his daughter, Luci. The evening was reserved for an All-States banquet and shindig. The shindig was complete with two top bands. First thing Thursday we visited Arlington Cemetery with the changing of the guard at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Presi- dent Kennedy's grave. After touring the U.S.D..\. building and lunch, we paid a visit to the National Cathedral, sixth largest in the world. The evening was spent on the Potomac with live music providing entertainment throughout the cruise. Friday morning was spent at the Bureau of Printing and Engraving, where we saw stamps and currency being printed. Lunch followed a tour of Mt. Vernon and the afternoon was spent at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Friday evening we were guests at an Iowa dinner and farewell party in the Chesapeake Room of the motel. Saturday morning we boarded an airplane for the return trip to Iowa. Those of us on the trip are grateful for the opportunity to see so much in such a short time and will'remember the sights and the many new friends made from around Iowa and the nation as well.
