Jersey Rotarians Told •' About Forestry Camps JERSEYVILLE — Members of the Jerseyville Rotary Club Monday noon were told of the purpose and method of operation of an Illinois Youth's Commission Forestry Camp. The after dinner speaker was Lew Kehr, superintendent of the Illinois Forestry Camp at Grafton, where the Illinois Youth's Commission sends youths who have committed crimes and been sentenced and turned over to the Commission for processing and ultimate placing in the rehabilitation program. Kehr described the methods employed in checking youths who have been convicted of violations. A young boy in the 12 year bracket! is usually in need of further elementary education and as a rule is sent to St. Charles School where educational facilities are available, he said. If the youth falls In the 16 year brackett, he is checked carefully. If it is determined that he is apparently beyond rehabiliation, he is sent to Sheridan, K e h r explained. Youths in the 16 year brackett, who are destined eventually to go to the Forestry Camp, are carefully checked for some time at the reception center at Joliet When their responses and checkup indicate probable rehabilitation they are sent to one of the Forestry camps of which Illinois now has 11 with a total capacity for 519. Illinois presently has more forestry camps than any other state in the United States. Present plans call for increasing the capacity next year to 615. The youths at the forestry camp are kept busy at a number of tasks and work done by the forestry camp youths last year was worth $500,000 to the State of Illinois, Kehr said. "Since the camp went into existence in the Grafton area, the boys have been contributing no less than 2,000 boy hours of work on various projects. In the Marquette Park area they rake leaves, thus eliminating ever present fire hazards. They clear away undesirable underbrush, gather failed branches and limbs, remove dead boughs, and assist in the control of forest fires, They work primarily for the Illinois Department of Conservation. "During the past forest fire seasons, the Forestry Camp youths at Grafton have participated in controlling a number of timber land fire. The fire fighting is a challenge and they really go in for battling the outbreak of fires in the woodlands. They are on 24 hour call during periods of forest fire danger in the spring and fall," Kehr added. • Payment Troubles? - CONSOLIDATE If you are unable to pay your payments, debt*, or bills when due, arrange payment* you can afford regardless of hew much cr how many you owe.
