Sunday, July 4, 196S RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN 7A Ronnie Peterson (left rear), 6, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Peterson of 1326 Jefferson St., Tom Rogan, 8 (foreground), son of Mr. and Mrs. John Rogan of 1223 Summit, and Robert Peterson Jr., 7, Ronnie's brotiier, strain intently to get tiie proper perspective in tlieit work. Mrs. Ricliard Yosko, an instructor for the Racine Street Community House youngsters, helps three young artists with a new concept. At Wustum, Community Centers Art Occupies Young, Old in Racine At the Racine Street Community House, some of the artwork may puzzle you. But ask "What is it?" of one of the youngsters who is at the center two or three times a week, producing some of the pieces, and he has no trouble at all answering. And at Wustum Museum, you may not want to buy some of the work produced by adult beginners in dieir classes each weekday, but for them its fun creating. In a visit to either place, however, or to one of several other places where Racine residents are having fun with art this summer, you may find yourself arranging to join them. Mrs. C. R. Pease, 4124 Monterey Drive, along with Mrs. Hoppe, is among those in the Wednesday morning painting class for adults at Wustum. She's one of some 340 in the summer classes there. Frank Steam, a re« tired commercial artist, works with Mrs. Pease's group. Hold 'em steady, please. It's hard enough as it is to capture the delicacy of a dandelion. But students try, as are the four in the picture at the right, to get down something on paper that, perhaps first of all, satisfied themselves. If someone else also is satisfied, well, that's art. That's Mrs. Charles Hoppe in the striped headdress. —Jouninl -TiiiiPS Pholo Radio Free Europe 15 Years Old MUNICH, Germany Radio Free Europe, the privately-financed American radio station beaming broadcasts to Iron Curtain countries, is 15 years old today. Founded to counter Communist propaganda in Eastern Europe, RFE began broadcasting 10 liours a week to Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria on July 4, 1950. Its transmitter was a 7,500-watt mobile unit. 515 Hours a Week Today, RFE has programs totaling 515 hours a week from a battery of 31 transmitters. Its declared purpose remains the same: "To help the East Eu- AUTO DEATHS GAIN A safety conference at Lansing, Mich., was told that highway fatalities per hundred million miles increased from 5.2 in 1961 to 5.7 last year. ropean people in their efforts to develop their own form of society and government without coercion from external or other sources. " The idea for RFE was conceived by a group of Americans in 1948 — the year the Berlin blockade started. By 1949, under the leadership of Gen. Lucius D. Clay, the U. S. commander in Germany, they had formed a committee to solicit funds for the station. "It (the station) will be given the simplest, clearest charter in the world—'Tell the Truth,'" said former Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower in launching the campaign. Jamming Outlay Within a short time, RFE became a thorn in the side of Eastern Europe's Communist regimes and they set up elaborate jamming equipment to keep their subjects from tuning in. RFE officials were proud to point out that the Communists were spending more on jamming than it cost to run the station. Most of the jam­ mers have been lifted in recent years with the easing of the cold war. There are none in Poland and those in the other four target countries are restricted to large cities. RFE officials claim 20 million listeners. RFE broadcasts 18 hours a day to Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary and five hours d a i l.y to Romania and Bulgaria. Ten minutes of every hour are devoted to news. The remainder of the program hours are filled with a world press review, political commentaries and on-the-spot reports such as U. S. space shots and sports events. Algerian, UAR Relations Are Termed Normal Again ALGIERS —(/P)— Relations now are completely normal between Algeria and the United Arab Republic, a spokesman of the U.A.R. Embassy said Saturday. He said there has been no formal act of recognition by the United Arab Republic of the new military regime of Col. H o u a r i Boumedienne, who deposed Pres. Ahmed Ben Bella two weeks ago. "No such act was called for, as the change of government was a purely Algerian domestic matter," the spokesman added. The statement still seemed to reflect a lack of enthusiasm for Boumedienne in Cairo. After Boumedienne's takeover, U.A.R. Vice Pres. Marshal Abdel Hakim Amer flew to Algiers in an effort to persuade Boumedienne to allow Pres. Gamal Abdel Nasser's old friend, Ben Bella, to go into exile in Egypt. Boume­ dienne rejected the request and the military regime subsequently came under violent' attack in the Egyptian government press while Nasser withheld formal recognition.

Dozens of people came to see tracks left behind by the "flying saucer." Maurice Masse, 41, told the gendarmes he spotted the craft Thursday morning at dawn. He said it looked like a big rugby ball and had four metal legs. With the craft, he reported, was a small human form, about the size of an 8- year-old child. "Suddenly," Masse said, "the craft took off and disappeared in the sky. I couldn't believe my eyes." Masse said he went to the spot and found tracks left by the legs and that the ground was packed hard as concrete. A gendannerie officer said strange tracks had been seen and that the ground was hard- SONOTONE HEARING SURPRISE! It's the Sonotone's Surprising New Hearing Aid IVorn k\\ At The Ear!
