Joyce MacKinzie modeling the floral jumper she made, Lisa Sweeney pert in her jumper, Lynn Wllliar in two piece Poncho and slack set St. John's Scouts Meet For the past five years the St. John's School GirlScout cluster has been holding the "fly- up" ceremony in Monocacy Village park. It is an event eagerly awaited by the third grade members of the two Brownie Girl Scout troops of the school, for it is then that they receive their "wings" (to be worn on the badge sash as a Junior), make the Girl Scout promise, receive the Girl Scout pin, and become Junior Scouts. The "open-end" troops each year lose older metn- .bers to the next age level and receive new members as replacements. In this way there is a continuity for both girls and troops. The fly-up ceremony opened with aflag ceremony. The Brownies then gathered in a "Brownie RiiV 1 ' with their leaders while the Juniors formed a horseshoe. Margaret Dobucki, Gloria Feliciano, Jennifer Lennox, Virginia Morrow, Lisa Murray, Barbara Sanders, DeniseTeagle,Sa- brina Weddle, Sherri Brown, Teresa Callahan, Teresa Jenkins, Madeline McSherry, Teresa Palko, ChantayStantonandBrade Smith, the fly-up Brownies, were presented wings by their Brownie leaders, Mrs. Roger Scherff and Mrs. Robert Morrow, and then crossed over, through the magic horseshoe, to the Junior side,, where they made the Girl Scout promise and recieved the Girl Scout pin from the Junior leader, Mrs. Eugene Linton. Refreshments were then served to the troop members and their guests. Plans for camping in the fall for fifth and sixth grade Juniors is already underway. Plans for the Brownie troops for next fall will be in doubt until leadership is found. The new Troop Service Director for the school is Mrs. Robert Tansey, succeeding Mrs. W. Harry Moss who has served in that capacity for the past five years. The Girl Scout Council of Central Maryland is a member agency of the United Givers Fund.

Miss Fay is the daughter of Mrs. George Runkles of Thurmont. By ART RICHARDSON Thurmont - Emmitsburg Area Correspondent The Emmitsburg School P.T. A. is coming alive. The force is from the students to the parents to the school. At the monthly meeting of the P.T.A. Wednesday night, groups of girls and boys gave the few parents who bothered to involve themselves a taste of what the youngsters want and the school should give. The 5, 6, 7 and 8 grade girls led off the evening with a fashion show, a simple down - to - earth thing that was notable for one outstanding thing that each and every garment modeled had been made by the kids. There were many hours of emoting in each of those pieces of sewing and the nervous youngsters who stumbled around the impromptu display area showed a throbbing desire for more expert direction in quality, actions and staging. The kids overrode the confusion of their principal and teachers. The total involvement of the children was a flame which, if properly fed and nurtured could become a shining light on the college campuses of the future. The girls who proudly modeled their personal creations were; Fran Fields in a snowy white A-line dressy - dress, Phyllis Davis - a scooter - skirt, Laurie MacKenzie showing a wildly patterned vest and skirt, Sheila Pittinger displaying her pastel A-lined gored jumper, Betsy Fields a roguish scooter - skirt, Martha Richardson a taste of spring in a jouncy zippered jumper, Joyce MacKenzie with her floral jumper, Lynn Williar a washable denim slack and poncho, Lisa Sweeny a candy bon - bonin a strap buttoned pink jumper, Debbie Kline a grown - up young lady with her navy blue jumper and frosty - white blouse, Phyllis Warnkin showing a perma press blue jumper and Mary Gingle wore a soft pink jumper. The boys poured out their energies on tumbling mats and the old Emmitsburg trampoline. Jamie Eyler, John Wantz, Bobby Springer, Frank Saylor, Perry Wiveli and David McCleaf were the faithful members of John Birkland's gymhanka group. They demonstrated an enthusiastic brand of tumbling with try and try again tactics quite evident when they failed the first two or three times. Six sweaty bodies showed a crying need for more, more and more good gymnastic instruction. The formal meeting of the Emmitsburg PTA made up in determination what it lacked in numerical support. After routine business was dispatched with dispatch, the newly elected officers were installed. Kenneth Feilds Jr. the new president of tfaegroup has a working type team of new officers. Bruce Gigeous is the recording secretary, Gail Graff, the VEEP, Ruth Wiveli, the Corresponding secretary and Alice Gregg, the treasurer. The new officers are the group of people who can be counted upon to become involved in Emmitsburg whenever a need arises for involvement They started their tenure in office in a push of critical activities. Fields began by reporting on his recent meeting with school board officialdom. His visit was to urge expansion of the Emmitsburg school library facilities, make the area a first priority one for a kindergarten, move up priorities for a new school building to replace the acknowledged- ly inadequate physical plant which is constantly being patched for another year of service and to ask that monies which are saved on maintenance be earmarked for direct service to the children of the Emmitsburg area. COMPLETES BASIC - Airman Michael E. Selby, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carroll E. Selby of RFD 2, Taneytown, has completed basic training at Lackland AFB, Tex.

PRICE OR MR. RADIN A strong stand was taken on urging the administration to approve in its entirety the Emmitsburg Principal's operating budget as submitted with substantiation to the Board. Fields and his new PTA administration are taking the need for involvement of parents and townspeople to the community. They are probing into ways and means of increasing the involvement of students, parents and faculty into an integrated learning experience for the children of Emmitsburg. They are giving a hard look at what the school has accomplished and what it can accomplish in the future. Fields states, "The PTA will encourage the administration and faculty to use every facility of this and other communities as a tool to give our children a wider learning base." He continued, "The entire community should show interest in the school board and take the time and effort to appear before it to be counted on every issue." There could well be new things happen in Emmitsburg soon. A standing ovation was afforded Mrs. Scott who announced her retirement from active teaching.

In making final a consent order issued by the commission last fall, the FTC rejected the contention by a group of Washington law students that the order lets Campbell avoid prosecution for false advertising. The FTC complaint alleged that Campbell and its advertising agency, Batten, Barton, Durstine Osborn Inc. had placed clear glass marbles in the bottom of brim full bowls of soup shown in television and newspaper advertising, making the solid ingredients look greater than they actually were. Thefinal order- to which commissioners Philip El man and Mary Gardner Jones filed exceptions - prohibits Campbell from using deceptive advertising or misrepresenting ingredients of any of its products. The law students, calling themselves Soup Inc.-- Students opposing unfair practices-- asked to intervene in the FTC proceeding, claiming the order would not protect the public interest. The three-member commission majority disagreed, ruling that the order fully protects the public and that "an assessment of the commission's priorities indicates that no further FTC resources should be devoted to the CALL 10 AJtf.
