Still others were disappointed

comments and criticisms from
more than 700 volunteers who
have completed their tours of

at Penn State. The seven children
said his work in the Philippines
'convinced him the Peace Corps
was a "wonderful vehicle for
winning new friends, and keeping
the friends we already have."
In Tanganyika, Jerry Parsons
of Albany, N.Y. said he was so
well liked that he was oiterea a
wife and a farm if he would stay
on the job.
But in Ethiopia, one volunteer
said the Government tried to dis
courage the Peace Corps workers
"because they are afraid we will
acquaint the common masses
with a bettor wav ot lite.
Susan Johnson of Sausalito,
Calif., reported that in the Philip
pines the people "were very du
bious at having the great white
Americans descend upon them. . .
There was no hostility. . .But we
could never overcome their un
derlying doubts about our mission."
On Sunday, the Peace Corps
was two years old. It has 6,634
volunteers assigned to, or train
ing for, 49 countries.
The Philippines has the great
est number of workers in the Far
East. In Africa, there were about
2,208 volunteers either training
for African assignments or al
ready on duty.
Shriver said it is the goal of
the corps to someday have the
entire program managed Dy ex-
volunteers. Ho said they have
seen its shortcomings and suc
cesses, and that their help will
be invaluable for a "flexible,
dynamic Peace Corps."
The consensus of the returning
volunteers indicates that most of
them feel their service was
But the most frequent comment
heard was that the public has the
wrong "image" about the corps.
One Peace Corp volunteer said
the "volunteer is portrayed in
silhouette against a sun going
down behind the palms. He has
a shovel over his shoulder, a
child at his feet, and he is look
ing onward and upward."
This image, he said, is hard to
equate with practice but adds
that the "Peace Corps is doing
an amazingly good job from the
standpoint of need."

finance and administration, told
the legislative fiscal committee

made if the vote on Oct. 15 is
He said because part of the bi
ennium already has. passed, cut
backs would have to average
about 2,7 per cent.
He said this means the "food
for prisoners and hospital patients
will be cut, the number of guards
and hospital workers will be cut.
"A cut of this magnitude means
dropping back to the barest mini
mums," he said.
"Nothing Else"
He said welfare cuts would be
made because there would be no
money, and admitted this- would
work a severe hardship on wel
fare recipients. "There'3 nothing
else we can do."
He warned there could be no

Tunnel Requested
LONDON (UPI) A 10-man
committee of experts has rec
ommended the construction of a
railroad tunnel under the English
Channel to establish the first per
manent link between the British
isies and the continent.
The "tunnel," a dream by vi
sionaries on both sides nf thn Ens-
Ush Channel for more than 100
years, must still be approved by
v. i , I
me oimsa ana rrencn governments.
The British Ministry of Trans
port said no government decision
nas been made yet.
"In reaching conclusions, the
government wishes to be able to
take account of the views of in-
terested bodies and organizations
in this country," a ministry state
ment said. "Such views should be
sent to the Ministry of Transport
as soon as possible."
"Her Majesty's government
and the French government will
then consult to reach a joint deci
sion on the course of action to be
The experts' report, released
simultaneously in London and Pa
ris, estimated the cost of con
struction of the tunnel and special
rolling stock to carry automobiles
at $400.4 million.
It said the tunnel could be built
in six years.
A bridge, the committee of
Anglo-French experts concluded,
could be built in about the same
time but would cost about twice
as much. The committee also
said bridge would constitute "a
new and serious hazard and
source of delay to mercantile and
naval shipping in the Straits of
Dover, one of the busiest ship
ping cnanneis in tne world."
The straits also are subject to
dense fog about 27 days a year.
A tunnel, the report said, was
preferred over steps to improve
existing means of cross - channel
transportation by sea and air fer
