WEDNESDAY, JUNE ft, 1060 ALT&N EVENING TELEGRAPH ON RIFLE RANGE Boy Scout'Camp Warwi Livl*, a gummer-tfttie Institution In Alton and ticlhltJrV Hied a ftve-week camping •ton last weak -with 71 boy campen. The camping program is built •round a lay-out of facilities set tip In dispersed areas, designed to advance the camp* era in tne field of scouting. As In past years, camping I* by troops, each with its own tent area, not on an individual basts. The idea behind' the whole thing, says Gordon Hansen, camp director, is to provide facilities for boys to advance in scouting and do so on a retrea- tion-like basis. Boredom, he says, is not one of the attitudes fostered by the camp. the Staff Hansen is aided and abetted by Jack Bowers of Alton, assistant camp director, Tony Kardls, also .of Alton, a senior at University of Illinois, director of field sports, and Stanley Hunter of Alton, a senior at Kansas University, director of the swimming pool, lake, boating activities and the like. Duftne Price of Jerseyville and Bernle Mennemeyer of Rosewood Heights are assisting Hunter.

I Set Up Schedule Troops scheduled for a week at the camp arrive on Sunday, go through a physical exam, their swimming categories are set up -and they get located in their several troop areas. They sleep in tents on mattresses, two to a tent. At a campfire meeting they are given the rules of the camp. At 10 p.m. on the opening Sunday, after things have simmered down for the night, the fcoutmasters meet with Han- sen and .preferences of the different troops are hashed over and the different activity areas are scheduled. "We chart it all out and troops are designated for a given area at a given time. It goes on*a big blackboard and everybody knows," Hansen says. The camp obstacle course Is located in one place and the troop using it can struggle over walls and skin over logs during their given time, then they move to the rifle range or knot- tying area, according to the schedule. Water Sports An elaborate swimming and boating program has been set up. Beginning swimmers' are segregated and -taught how. Plain swimers are assisted in attaining the bracket of expert —and experts are drilled in lifesaving work. A large lake is used lor boating, principally in canoes.

PICTURE YOURSELF ON A PICNIC WITH THIS KODAK CAMERA •Bated on companion to other cameras sold at retail ANYONE FOR MARS? Chances are there's more than one budding astronaut in this bright-eyed group. Aa in any other classroom in the land, there are probably several potential teacher*, too ... along with a sprinkling of doctors, scientists, linguists, engineers and poets. Let's hope so. Let's hope that all the bright-eyed youngsters in all the classrooms in this great country of ours will have every opportunity to make the most of their God-given talents. Let's hope they go to tint-rate colleges and Universities, where they Kill be trained to be useful and productive citizens. We're going to need them all in the critical years that lie ahead. Yet what are their chances? Today the college classroom, the place where future brainpower is generated, is being seriously weakened by two alarming trend*: (1) Low faculty salaries are driving great numbers of gifted teachers into other fields, and doing little to attract talented young people to the teaching profession. And (2) physical facilities, in some cases already inadequate, are not being expanded to take care of mushrooming enrollments. (College applications are expected to double within ten years!) This is a serious situation, and we must do something about it now! Our future as a nation depends on it. Won't you help? Support the college of sour choice. Help it to pay teachers decent salaries ami the reaped they so richly deserve. Help it to build the classrooms, laboratories and libraries that will be so desperately needed by 1970. The rewards will be greater than you think. ____„_ It»important for you to know what th» college crisii mean* to you.
