A panorama of the activities of
Community Center Department
young people—drama, music, ath
letics, crafts and club life—is in
cluded in the Community Center
Quarterly, the winter issue of which
was circulated this week end.
One of the highlights in the mag
azine, distributed among the Gov
ernment departments, public schools,
center unit supervisors and hun
dreds of private homes, is an article
on the Children’s Federal Gallery,
established by the District’s Federal
Art Project of the W. P. A. The
article was written by Philip F. Bell,
gallery directoc.
The periodical is printed at the
Abbot Vocational School at Seventh

editors include department officials,
playground supervisors and young
sters who enjoy the facilities offered
by the department.
The editor of the publication, Mrs.
Cora Wells Thorpe, describes in the
current issue the “Only Gypsy
School in the World.” She learned
of the unusual school, located on the
Danube River at Ozhorod, during a
visit in Prague last summer.
A resume of the work of the vari
ous centers throughout the city is
described in a special section of the
magazine. For the first time, a short
story written by a participant in the
department's writers’ project is in
cluded in the current quarterly. The
story is “Small Town,” by Julia
Hoopes. Other aritcles describe fu
ture projects of the department,

House Member's Daughter
Played Pro Basket Ball
Betty Jensen Prefers
Sports to Social
One of the recent additions to the
list of congressional daughters is a
19-year-old who would rather toss
a basket ball than dance and prefers
bowling to pouring tea any day.
She is slim, attractive Betty Jen
sen, daughter of Representative Ben
F. Jensen of Iowa.
For two years a professional bas
ket ball player with a business girls’
team in Des Moines, she looks
strictly feminine and hides, or just
doesn't have, the bulging muscles
reputed to go with girl athletes.
Although she failed to do so her
self, Miss Jensen’s advice to girls
is to limit their basket ball playing
to high school games.
“Professional basket ball is too
rough.” she explained, "and the
schedule is too strenuous. We played
57 games a season, practiced three
hours a day and had two Sunday
games a week. And we were play
ing boys’ rules part of that time.”
Likes All Sports.
Miss Jensen loves sports—all of
them. When she was in high school,
she used to caddy for her father.
Now they play golf together. She
spends her summers fishing, loves
to hunt, roller skates frequently, is
always organizing bowling parties,
though she can't find many takers
among the other congressional
Because she thinks women have
a “funny attitude" toward sports,
she'd rather play with men. They
take sports seriously, while girls just
play for the pastime, she explained.
She went to business school just
to play on the team. It was called
the “A. I. B. Typists" and boasted
two all-Americans, Myrtle Fisher
and Elvira Lindgren. Five feet ten
inches tall, though she doesn’t look
it. Betty played forward. Her moth
er couldn’t object, she explained, be
cause she had once coached a basket
ball team herself.
Has to Be Careful.
Her spine was injured in one of
the games and though she played in
a sectional tournament a month
later, she has to be careful. Even
so, she couldn't resist tossing a bas
ket ball the other day when she
visited a Georgetown school. Shoot

ing from the balcony in high heels,
she made a basket.
“You learn a lot about girls’ per
sonalities when you play basket
ball,” she reflected. "Some girls can
take it good naturedly when you out
point them, but others—well, they’re
not that way.”
A very forthright young lady,
Betty had something to say about
the attitude of congressional daugh
ters on dates.,
“Most of them feel the boys have
to spend a lot of money on them
when they go out,” she declared. "I
think they- should be more con
servative in their tastes. Most of
the boys are working and they can't
afford it.”
Otherwise, she thinks Washington
is lovely, though the public buildings
‘sort of confuse me.”

Captains in Drive
For Boys' Club Ask
Citizens to Aid
Lt. Col. Harvey Miller
And P. W. Hammock
Make Appeals
The campaign of the Metropolitan
Police Boys’ Club to raise $75,000
entered its second week today, and
team captains urged Washingto
nians to aid the clubs in providing
recreation facilities for underprivi
leged boys of the Capital.
Lt. Col. Harvey Miller, secretary
of the District Boxing Commission
and leader of Group 10, reminded
that the police "would rather ‘shoot
square’ with the underprivileged boy
today than shoot it out with what
he might be later on.”
Paul W. Hammack, insurance man
and captain of Group '8, declared,
"The most amazing thing is that
the Metropolitan Police Boys’ Clubs
give these youngsters so much for
only $5 a year of citizen contribu
Similar reasons for their interest
in the drive were expressed by the
other volunteer team leaders.
Dr. Leon S. Gordon, director of
the clubs’ medical clinic, will be the
principal speaker Tuesday at a "pep"
luncheon of the solicitors to be held
in the Cosmos Club.
