YOUTH LEADERS SEEK HELP
Shakespeare Had the Right Words
By CHARLES V. STANTON
Adults are very sympathetic toward youth activities but
apparently are not willing to sacrifice personal time or
energy to assist. Such is the complaint of a group or teen
agers endeavoring to set up a Youth Center in Roseburg,
We have been visited several times by a delegation of
youth leaders striving to perfect an organization.
Pep and enthusiasm marked their first appearance in
our office. Their last visit was expressive of disappoint
ment, gloom and disillusionment.
At every turn they had met with commendation for their
efforts, but no actual help was forthcoming and no indi
vidual aid could be obtained. The quarters they had expected
to use had been leased. They could find no adults willing to
give time to chaperonage. No one had the time to serve as s
member of an adult council. No financial sponsors were
The program is well organized.
Leaders have in circulation membership rosters on which
teen-agers are pledging support and cooperation. Tentative
program outlines are prepared, together with prospective
constitution, by-laws, governing rules and regulations, etc.
all admirably done.
The plan In mind Is to organize a Youth Center and to
find quarters to be developed for use as a clubhouse. Adult
leadership is available for various activities gymnastics,
band, orchestra, dance instruction, hobby classes, etc. Once-a-week
dances are planned throughout the school year.
The group will be largely self-supporting, but will need
some financial aid, particularly an adult council to under
write Initial expenses, to approve the organizational set-up,
and supervise activities. Adult chaperonage is desired after
noons and evenings throughout each week. If it becomes
necessary to rent or lease quarters, as is anticipated, the
youth group will need financial aid in such expense.
It Is proposed by the group leaders that the club be made
the nucleus for Y.M.C.A. development.
The delegation visiting this office reported contacts with
city police officials, ministers, heads of various fraternal
orders and civic clubs.
"We found everyone promising support," said the spokes
man, "but we haven't been able to find anyone willing to
give us some time and personal help."
The spokesman went on to report that tentative arrange
ments had been made for a location, but that the basement
room had since been leased for commercial purposes; that
the town had been thoroughly explored for another pros
pective club site but that nothing suitable had been found.
"I guess," he said, "that we'll have to wait. until the
Y.M.C.A. builds a building. I should live so long!"
We believe everyone will sympathize with the promotional
effort in progress by this group of young people, and with
their disappointments. They can go only so far without
adult assistance, and they seem to have about reached the
end of their rope, "unless needed help is forthcoming.
Hoscburg's crowded condition makes adequate quarters
difficult to obtain. We believe the problems of sponsorship
and chaperonage can be solved. We will be disappointed if
some adult organization fails to come forward with a volun
tary offer to take over the sponsorship duties.
Perhaps someone has Ideas concerning where quarters can
be found. The young people are willing to undertake the
work of repairs, painting, furnishing, etc.
We will be glad to put persons having suggestions or
offers in touch with the leaders of the teen-age group.

three times: the third time the

The new model work ahead is not
likely to close down anv of the
auto plants for extended periods.
Certainly prolonged shutdowns
aren't needed to change models.
This has been demonstrated in
the switch overs already made to

cal style changes, halted its as

Buirk brought out a wholly
new model without interrupting
its output. Nash took three weeks
to switch over to units, but
could have done it in less lime.
Other car makers yet to change

than two weeks, even where out

This means, of course, that the
auto makers are moi-e concenfed

been at any time since the war.
