Mr. Forrester spoke on his recent visit to Czechoslovakia as a member of the Feeds-Grain Council. Mr. Forrester said the European country had been living on its depreciation since 1846 when the Communists took over. Building is almost non-existent and scaffolds are used on the exterior of buildings to keep the bricks from unrepalredbuildings striking people on the sidewalks below. Mr. Forrester said the Czechs spend 45 percent of their Income for food. In the United States, 18 percent of the family Income is spent for food. "If the Czechs ate one-half as good as we do. it would take 100 percent of their earnings," said Mr. Forrester. Former President Kennedy was revered in the European country, reported Mr. Forrester. People there kissed the Kennedy half dollars that he passed out. Mr. Forrester said he was greatly concerned that the United States has five percent of the world's population and 50 percent of the material goods. Two- thirds of the world's three billion go to bed hungry every night, he said. The DeKalb official forecasted that in the near future, "we're going to pay farmers for producing Instead of for taking land out of production." Also guests at the meeting were Willis Holston art Joe En- ntB of Humboldt. The guests wer« introduced by Albert MorthouM.

The featured speaker for the evening was Dale (Drmps)Chris- tensen, who stated that no other team can compare with the present Humboldt team. "Comparing the teams that I played on to this team would be like comparing a 1941 car to a new, 1967 model. The team and coaches are that . r:h better. "We ca' A proud of not only the team, but also the whole student body-that they could absorb the success and confidence that they have and conduct themselves on the level that HHS does. "This team is different, there is no super-human effort nor high scores, but they have shown that they are able to hang on, to come from behind, and to make the big play when it is needed. It is a team that is a team, it acts as one. "Credit must also be given (or the fantastic work that the cheerleaders have done to build enthusiasm and to keep it rolling. It is easy to cheer when you are ahead, but this team would maintain spirit anytime. "To me, the most enjoyable part of the game is to watch Herb Zinnel and his wrecking crew go to work on defense. Everyone knows that the good Lord shortened up Herby's legs a little bit and that he is usually the last one on or off of the field, but he is always on ttie_bQttojn of the pile when a play comes near him. '"However, this is a team, and it is difficult to select any one This is team is doing one vital thing, installing a winning spirit. They came back after a 2-6 season last year to win the conference championship." The evening was concluded with the coronation, a pep skit and the bonfire provided by the Wildcat Boosters Club. ewr been In.
