TUESDAY, JUNE 18, 1963 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE THREfi 'Delinquents-- Young People Caught in a Social Vacuum' Delinquents coming to the at-| tention of the Illinois Youth Commission are young people caught in a social vacuum, commission chairman John Troike said Monday. Kick-off speaker at the Community Institute for the Prevention of Juvenile Delinquency, Troike urged community agencies to find opinion molders who could best, take an interest in their individual programs and keep the public informed. "Agency workers may feel their work is small but they are doing something, which is the important thing, and they should not be embarrassed at what they feel is a small contribution," he said. The institute, scheduled to run to July 12 at SIU's East St. Louis center is designed to bring together local professional workers, university faculty and nationally known experts in the field for an analysis of the problems involved in forumulating and implementing practical delinquency prevention programs. Consultants include Leslie Wilkins of the British Home Office and Lemar Empey, director of the Provo, Utah, Youth Project. Other SIU faculty members on the institute staff include Orval Johnson and Charles V. Matthews of the Education Division and Seymour Mann, Elliott Rudwick and Martin Dosick, from the Social Sciences Division. The institute is sponsored jointly by SIU and the president's committee on juvenile delinquency and youth crime. Hayiier City AT SESSION Library Head Now on Duty David K.

Miss Louise Anthony, director of library services for the Alton School system, is resigning July 1 to take a temporary position in a Skokie school district, where she will organize an elementary school library program. Miss Anthony, who came 1 to the Alton school district in June of 1948 to organixe the library program here, said she regrets -leaving Alton "very much." However, Ihe attraction of organizing the elementary library program in the Skokie district is too much. After that job is completed, estimated to take about 18 months, Miss Anthony said she will return to Southern Illinois to live and then become active in helping to develop other library services, in the area. She is from Jacksonville. In Dupo 8 Years She was the school librarian in Dnpo for eight years and has taught library science at various universities in .summer sessions. She has been in Illinois public schools us teacher and librarian since lilM. When she came to Alton to organize the library program, there were only three centralized libraries: at the high school, Roosevelt and East Junior. Today, there are six. These are at the senior high school, all four junior highs and at Milton elementary school, plus the bookmobiles. Last year, some than 300,000 books were circulated to 11,000 students in the school system, the highest it has ever been. "It seems to disprove Ihe idea that Johnny can't read," Miss Anthony said. The bookmobile system here lias binm used as a pattern by several other Illinois school districts, she added, and was cited by the State Superintendent of Public instruction [or its economy of operation and its adequate library materials. Children are "enchanted" with MISS ANTHONY bookmobiles, she said. "Because of its compactness, a bookmobile becomes very personal to Ihe children. For some it becomes a little house and for others it people and other nations. Emphasis Today The emphasis in education today is on elementary school libraries, Miss Anthony said, because ed- ucalors have come to realize that they can't have a good secondary school library without an elementary library service. In Alton, she added, the reading level oi' children went up about three years after the bookmobile service to elementary schools began. Before the increase in library services and when she had more time, she used to read stories to school children, and at least one story apparently made a lasting impression. Recently, she explained, she was in a downtown office building and noticed an elevator operator staring at her. "I remember you," the girl said. "You're the one who told the story about the rabbit with the magic nose when I was in the third becomes their own personal li- g'' ac le. brury." She noted that both teenagers and smaller children today read much more seriously today than they used to. Teenagers, she said, read twice as much non-fiction as fiction and are deeply concerned about nuclear problems, whether war is inevitable and in the problem of getting along with other Mrs. Holmes Elected Mrs. Ola Holmes was elected president of the VFW Post 3899 auxiliary Monday night. Also elected were Mrs. Tina Franklin, secretary; Mrs. Myron Manley, treasurer; and Mrs. Pearl Young, chaplain. • •••••••••••••••••••• Vj TOO MANY BILLS?
