James llellni. Jim. in attending
)TI, is follow ing along in the
footsteps if liis father, Paul. who
completed a J-ear gunsuiithing
course at the same school (see
Maich, P57, Tribune f it article
on Paul's training). Jim reckons
that his father's having taken
gunsmit hing may have had some
thing to 1 with his enrolling in
mcchine tech.. a similar course.
Jim worked on the lathe in his
dad's shop at home, took some
machine shop courses in high
school, and when the mechanical
technology course was initiated
at TI last Sept. under the engin
eering dejit.. decided to have a try
at it.
Jim says then' are ahout 15
students in the new course. So
far they have taken such subjects
as engineering drawing, ma
chine shop, welding, metal identi
lication. ph sics, and Knglish.
I he learn to i cad blueprints,
make up bluepiints for metal
consti uctioii, identity metals, and
heat licit metaN. According to
Jim. the students have worked
with thiiT main tpcs of ma
chines; lathes (fm working with
jound metal), milling machine
(lor doing finish work on flat
met:d surfaces), and shapers (for
doing lough work with flat
metal). Jim has made such mi
likeh items ,is .i lathe dog and a
center dtill holder, and has aKo
had epenence thicading pieces
of steel.

terials. Jim sees the heavy cou
ccntiation ut pin sics and math
in mceh. tech. as constituting one
of the main differences between
it and his dad's course gmi
smithing. Jim was raised in the Klamath
Kails area, attending Peterson
elementary school, Altamont jun
ior high, and Klamath Union
High School. He graduated from
KllIS last June.
lie is enthusiastic about OTI
and its instructors, and points out
the added economic advantage of
brine; able to live at home while
receiving his post-high school
training. Jim expects to gradu
ate from inech. tech. in June,
I'M. after which time he would
like to accpiire his own machine
shop. Kssential to this objective
will be receipt of his termination
funds as a withdrawing member.
"I'd like to invest my share in
a machine shop. I'd be able to run
one with my education."
As to how he became a with
draw re, Jim says his parents
more or less decided for him. He
is "pretty well satisfied with the
decision" --"I'm at an age where
I'd rather get the money and in
vest it".
As a minor, a private trust has
been set up for him, He considers
it a "pretty good deal", pointing
out that his trust officers procure
the $H) semi-annual loans for
him. lie is then able to draw
funds for such essentials as den
tist ami doctor . bills, glasses,
transportation. He would wel
come a lump settlement pretty
soon, however, seeing limitations
in what can be done with the
It ans.
Jim's eti a-curricular interests
take in skiing both water and
snow "just for the tun of it".
Twenty five students from the
I'niversity of Oregon represent
ing countries from every corner
of the world were hosted to a
dinner by the Klamath Reserva
tion Discussion Group on March
24 at the Williamson River
The tour is an annual project
of the Foreign Student Frindship
Kottndation of the University
YMCA. This year, the students
were taken on a four day tour of
Southern Oregon Communities.
According to Russell Walker,
Kxecutive Secretary of the Uni
versity YMCA, wlui accompanied
the group, the tour is part of the
Koundation's effort "to increase
understanding between foreign
students and the citizens of our
great state."
In a meeting held just before
dinner, Jesse Kirk said. "1 al
ways heard that this was a small
world, and the gathering here
this afternoon proves it. We've
got people from all over the
world meeting under one roof."
Conrad Shelland. officer in
charge, gave a brief description of
W ater skiing he does at Lake of
the Woods and Klamath Lake,
using the family boat and Kvin
rude 5. He has been at this sport
some years. He jjets in his winter-type
skiing at Tomahawk and
Mt. Shasta. He also does a lot of
hunting and fishing, mainly on
the reservation. He supposes this
will be curtailed somewhat after
termination, and figures he may
then take some of his hunting and
fishing elsewhere.
