NMTMMfT AKANSAS 11MB. Plans Ready, Work May Begin In Two Months Organization Has Had Two Locations During'Past Year By ALLAN GILBERT, JH. ,In following its policy of build !ng slowly but well the curren board of directors of the Fayette ville Boys Club appears to hav solved- one of its most cntiba problems--^that of housing the or ganization. As., plans now stsn ·work on a permanent home fo the club 'is.; scheduled for lat spring. ' : When the Boys Club'in Fayette ville was-'reactivated a little les t h a n . a year : .ago the board wa well aware of the .difficulties tha faced it in.securing permanen quarters and equally aware of .the importance of securing such a Past history had left the club with, a sore, spot on the subjec of building. Under the board tha preceded the present one plans were made to construct a headquar ters on the city park property. Tha proposal met with considerabli public opposition and subsequently was -dropped, along with much Interest in the. organization. In 'May of last year a group of Interested, citizens decided to re vive the club. Bob Logsden, a graduate of. the University with previous juvenile guidance experience, was- hired as director and on June 17 the club put out a call for boy's.'interested in taking part in its program. Firit At City Park Two boys showed up the firsl day, but 55 turned out the-second day, end of the three- month summer period there were 125 boys enrolled in the activities. The vacant field north of the swimming pool in the City Park was the first location of the club. The board felt that it should feel its way carefully at the start, and only limited expenses were made on equipment in the early stages of the program. The play at the park was supervised carefully by Director Logsden, who was able to show marked progress In his individual guidance of the boys and in his efforts to create Interest in the program. Baseball and Softball for three ·ge groups (11 and under, .11 to 13 and 14 to 18), volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, speedball, awimmins pool, tennis, and indi- Tldual contests were offered. The baseball teams · of the two older age groups played 10 games with teams of other: towns, using the EVERYTHING M nUMBINO and SUPPLIES FAYETTEYILLE IRON and METAL CO. OOVERNMINT AVI.

When the club moved into its present location, the old Assembly of Jod White Chapel'Church oh South College, 150 boys were taking part in the activities offered. In ess than a month after moving the membership swelled to 250, more than the facilities could adc- uately. accommodate. The chapel .has been renovated through the cooperation of the Faycttevillc Exchange Club, but it is-hoped, that the building, shown at the top, can be constructed this summer o provide for. the steady'growth of the organization. The chapel building will be open to visitors this week n observance of'national Boys Club Week.. (Puska TIMESFOTO). ' . . . . ' . Vashington County Fair Ground s the home field.

Throughout this time th oard was attempting to iron ou he problems that" stood in th way of the construction of a per anent building. Building Available When the Assembly, of God IHiite Chapel Church building on outh* College became available he board decided that it woul e wiser to purchase that property a temporary . headquarters lan to let the program lapse o o rush into the plans fpr. buildini efore all necessary ground worl ad been made. The board, upon careful investi ation, felt that the purchase o: le church was a safe investmen' nd would realize a margin o: rofit in the continuation of the ub's program of work. The pur- lasc-was made early in Novem- er and the Club officially moved December 1. In the period between the enc ! the summer and the .transfer o: cation to South College about I boys took part in Fayetteville's, rst midget football program quipment was secured through ooperation from the University hletic department, .and four ames were played with other 'ams. The two home games-were eld at Harmon Field with the nal one designated "Homecom- g" and complete with a queen nd maids. In the football, as iif all the :am sports, -the. emphasis, was .aced on participation by all boys terested in the sport rather than n trying to win.

And with members of the Exchange Club doing much of the work showers were installed,'"th'e. 'plumbing repaired, 1 .the library painted and locks were placed on 'the doors. The biggest spurt in participation : followed 1 , the move to the chapel building. The enrollment jumped from, 125 to 250 in a little more than a month, with many of the new boys of the type the club feels it can do the most for -boys with limited or no access to supervised recreation. The present building has two floors, the top one 30 feet by 40 feet which is used for basketball, and the bottom one divided into a number of rooms devoted to a library, quiet games, boxing and utility purposes. " At the present time - it appears that the planning, by the club board toward its goal of a permanent building will -soon bear fruit. The plans' for a very functional structure, approved by the national Boys Club organization, arc ready and it is hoped that a Contract can be let for the con- 'struction within two .months'. The plans call for an "L" shaped structure with one wing scrvin] as a gymnasium. The buildini will be erected in the northeas' corner of the club's 10-acre plo; in the. south part of the city; Th first step in the development 01. the property was' recently when the.Kiwanis Club agreed to help in the building of a bridge and road into the property from Fourth Street. The. City will also furnish help in this project; · ' And additional development plans call for baseball and softbalL diamonds and. courts for various outdoor games. d Mn. iyand Mrs. K. : Pense ; of, Wiri!j r low announce the birth of : a' son March 29, at the -Clty^H«pitili Mr. and MM.
