B FLOYD CARL, JR. Next week will he Boys Club Week in Fayetteville. It v.'ill also mark the beginning of an Exchange Club sponsored campaign to erect a permanent home for the growing youth organization which at present is bursting out the seams of its ramshackle headquarters. Among other tilings, members of the Boys Club--more than 250 of them--will tackle a city-wide chan up campaign with the aid of city Sanitation Department trucks. Crews of boys will ride. 1 the trucks, loading trash, junk and other litter. The week will open Monday and the various events will last through the following Saturday. On Monday members of the club will open a drive for old clothes hangers, and will ccp at the job of collecting hangers all week between other jobs. Proceeds from the sale of the hangers will go Into the club f u n d . · The clean up campaign will open Tuesday a n d c-.ntinuc through Wednesday. Thursday an open house will be held at club headquarters in the old White ChapeJ Assembly of God Church on North College Avenue. Every- CITY BUS NEWS ·«· By H. W. YOUNKIN -For the past v;cck, due to construction on Highway 71 By-pass at Rock and College Avo., two of our buses have hcen forced to make detours, adding nbnut ten blocks to both the Huntsville St. and Fairgrounds runs. As a result, it hns been impossible to avoid being late at busy times of the day. one interested in the youth program is invited to. drop in at the building during the day and sec the facilities. After school hours the program will be in full swing. Visitors to the club house arc going to find the old b u i l d i n g a l i t t l e shaky. But they are also go- ins to find the boys, making f u l l use of every facility. More Space Soucjit The extent to which the Boys Club serves the youth oC Fayetteville isn't really known to irost of the town's people. This is n a t u r a l enough considering that the club was rejuvenated only last year. The organization has mushroomed, growing from an organization of a dozen boys to one of over 2SO. And it will prow larger ---much larger--v/hcn space is available. It is this lack of space t h a t cramps the club through t h e long winter, months. Its present small building simply isn't big enough to accommodate all the members. In summertime, with most of the c'ub's activities outdoors, the building is less of a prnblr-m. H the joint effort by the Boys Club and Exchange Club is successful, another winter may see the organization in adequate quarters. The plan calls for a simple concrete, block building, but one big enough lo permit basketball and other similar activities. In fact, the .proposed b u i l d i n g could easily double for a municipal auditorium. It's going to cost moncy--about 525,000. Of this, the club has $10,000 in its building fund. But the rest is going to be sought through contributions of money, material ·wd labor. But however much work it ith e l l worth the effort. takes--ask any judge dealing wit juvenile' will be we] We hope to extend bus service to several additional parts of the eity us soon as new paving projects for this season are completed. Most of the present runs and limo schedules will have to be changed and extra bus equipment will be needed. Our cash (arcs of 10 cents for . adults and 5 cents for youngsters going to grade nnd high school have boon the same since the Fay- ftteville bus lines were started six years ago. During that period of time prices on many food items havt doubled nnd trebbled, cotton and wool goods have doubled in price, and auotmobllcs, trucks, buses, parts, etc., hovo rapidly splinted upward. Because nf thn steep hills nnd high gasoline lax, It costs more to operate a bus in Fayetteville thnn in many cities In other parts of tho country. We are not, however, among the 277 cities which having but fares hlsher than n dime, nor do we chnrRc for transfers as Is bdnf clone In IBS cities.

Young Men Being Accepted By Navy Reserve Unit Under a new regulation naval reservists can not transfer to Fay- ettovillo's Organized Electronics Company 8-8 no matter wh;it rating they hold.- Until now only radio,- radar and allied specialists have been eligible to join the unit. In addition, while men over 13 and one-half years old cannot become members of the Naval Reserve, those between 17 and 18 and one-half can and will be accepted for enlistment in the company. Men who meet the requirements will not be called to active duly while under 18 nnd one-half, or while attending high school. Nor will men with children be called to active duty. Should a member of the Naval Reserve be called up by his draft board, he can volunteer for a twn- year lour of active duty in the Navy any time up until he is inducted into the Army. The two-year period is the same as that served by drafted men, and is the shortest possible term of Navy duty. The regular Navy enlistment--the only other way info the Navy--is for four years.

Although pottery, which includes all claywnre-earth- crnwnr, stoneware, china and porcelain -- dates hack to earliest history, the practice of moulding bulk clay into useful or decorative articles is no less fascinating today than It was in the age before electricity or machinery or even the potter's wheel were known. As the potter once look a l u m p of clay and realized its f u t u r e wns entirely in his hands, so the rera- micist of our takrs the soft- ettcd clay or slip and realizes that whether or · not he uses molds, trio beauty, of the finished product rests entirely upon the will of the one holding (he clay.

Kansas who have become ceramics Almost unrecoRn./ahic as he rc!»- enthusiasts is Mrs. Friedman Sisco of Springdale. A year aso Mrs. Sisco began the hobby of ceramics, and six months Inter she added china painting to her original hobby. Today, w i t h only one year's practice, she has turned out scores of exquisite articles which 1 live of another Hem from the same mold. The fiRUre* seem to have a c t u a l expressions on their faces. Hundreds of minute forget-me-nots may he fashioned and painstakingly attached to one bowl or vase. One figurine with a lace skirt required . appear to be the work of one with many years experience. At first Mrs. Sisco, the mother of two small sons, took a few lessons in ceramics. Then, like a true student in the subject, she ordered books of instruction and hpgan fi trial and error method nf learning. When she "hit" she learned her Irsson by pride In the finished product; and when she "missed" she learned her lesson for the clay riorbly well. As n result it is d i f f i c u l t to believe that one so young in experience could j have produced the near-perfection ' she has achieved in her ceramics.
