Give Our Young Teen-agers
A Chance; Do Your Part For
Success Of Community Chest
If there is a “tort” group in Key
West, it’* the pre-teens and the
very young teen-agers.
They are too young for high
school activities and too old for
grammar school affairs.
Perhaps that is why they enjoy
the Tuesday evening Youth Center
program at the Wesley House
it is planned especially for them.
Officially known as the “Key
West Youth Center” it’s staffed by
teachers in the local schools who
have had specialized training in
youth and recreation work.
The Youth Center is not an in
tegral part of the Wesley House
program. The Tuesday night pro
grams are held at the Wesley
House through the cooperation of
Miss Arlene Merritt. Wesley House
deaconess, and the Wesley House
executive board.
The Youth Center was originally
organized after the Junior Wom
an’s Club conducted a survey a
mong the youngsters in the var
ious schools while looking for a
project to enter in a General Fed
eration contest “Build Freedom
With Youth.”
An overwhelming number asked
for some place of “our own where
we can meet and have good times.”
The Juniors then wrote letters to
federated clubs throughout Florida
and to Chambers of Commerce in
cities where there was an establish
ed youth center.
When all these letters came back,
h was embarrasing to note that
Key Wert was the only city of
comparable size that had no super
vised program for the youngsters.
When the Juniors reported this
to the Woman’s Club, members of
the senior department joined the
younger women in their effort to
remedy this and the outcome was
a joint project the Key West
Youth Center.
After several months of search
ing for a suitable place, for the
Youth Center, Miss Merritt offer
ed the use of the facilities of the
Wesley House on one night a week.
Her offer was gratefully accept
ed and two weeks later, the Youth
Center was opened to the youngs
ters.
In the beginning. It was staffed
by volunteers from the various or
ganizations in the community and
during the summer the County
School Beard operated the center
as part of the summer recreation
program.
The summer program was so
successful that the advisory board
retained two of the instructors to
direct the program.
They did this on a shoe string
and it was not until money was
received from the Navy Charity
Carnival that the Youth Center was
operated on more than a week to
week basis.
Last year when the Community
Chest was re activated, the board
applies for admission and was ac
cepted.
When the enrollment kept grow
ing by leaps and bounds, more in
structors were added and at pre
sent there are four.
The approximately 100 youngs
ters who come every Tuesday are
kept busy with games, athletics,
crafts and square dancing.
When this year’s Community
Chest camapign opened. every
youngster was given a letter to tak
home to their parents, explaining
the operation of the Center and
asking them to support the Com
munity Chest.
The letter stated that the pro-

Olson Says He

RICHMOND. Calif uP “I felt

World middleweight champion
Carl (Bobo) Olson made this com
ment after he had scored an eight
round technical knockout oyer
Garth Panter of Salt Lake City in
their scheduled 10-round, national
ly televised contest at the Rich
mond Auditorium last night. The
title, of course, was not at stake.
* Olson didn’t look exactly slug
gish in the fearful beating he gave
Panter. He pounded the game Salt
Laker with a two-handed attack
from the start.
Referee Joe Louis, the former
heavyweight champion, halted the
uneven battle 41 seconds after the
eighth round started when Panter
was cut deeply on the side of his
right eye. Five stitches were need
ed to close it. Panter also was cut
on his left cheek bone in the fifth
round. It took two stitches to close
his cut.

Give Just A Little Bit More;
Buy A Buddy Poppy Nov. 5-6
On November 5 and 6 the local Veterans of Foreign Wars Post
and Auxiliary will hold their annual Buddy Poppy Sale. While we
well realize that people today are literally swamped with requests
to contribute to many fund raising drives, we feel that the Buddy
Poppy Campaign is one that cannot be ignored.
This is one of the few chances that local people have of paying
homage to those who gave so much for their country during times
of war. If you give 25 cents for a Buddy Poppy, approximately 19
cents stays right here in our com munity where the local post uses
the money to help needy veterans and their families. One and one
half cents goes to the state V. F. W. welfare program; one cent to
the V. F. W\ National rehabilitation sendee; one cent to the V. F. W.
National Home for widows and orphaned children, and the remain
der to costs of materials and to pa y the hospitalized veterans who
assemble the Buddy Poppies.
The V. F. W. National Home is an especially praise - worthy
project. At Eaton Rapids, Michigan, the V. F. W. has set up a
model rhild village. The hhildren live in regular homes erected by
the V. F. W. Ranging from infants to high school age children, each
home has a mixture of boys and girls, with five to ten children in
each home, supervised by a house mother. Each child has regular
household chores, attends public schools, attends a church of his own
choosing and in general leads as normal as life as is possible without
having parents of hts own.
It is because of such projects that the V. F. W. has become an
integral part of almost every community in the United States. Every
one in this community should join the V. F. W in making such
projects possible by purchasing a Buddy Poppy.
