Seventh Step Foundation "Ex-Cons Aid Juveniles By Steve Helle They've been there, they're back and now they're telling others how much they disliked what they saw. "They" are ex-cons and they are bringing their unique program of rehabilitation to Cedar Rapids and Iowa for the first .time. The Seventh Step Founda- tion differs from other convict rehabilitation programs in two ways, said George May, new- ly-named Iowa executive director. Unique "We are unique because convicts we help have an average 15 percent return rate to prison, whereas the normal return rate is 70 per- said May. "Also we ourselves are ex-cons, ex-social he continued. "We are more effective going into prisons, seeking out the hardened criminal, redirecting and mo- tivating him." "What we say they respect added Cliff Benedict, national executive director of the program. "We can com- municate well with convicts because we've been there. I can say the same thing a parole officer would say, but he'll respect it all the more coming from me." Former Forger Benedict is a former bank robber and May a forged check passer, or as he de- scribed himself in prison lingo, a "paperhanger." "Being an ex-con is part of our noted Bene- dict. "We're not proud of it but we've accepted it and know we don't have to do it today." An office at 105 Tenth street Voices Cautious Note on OTTAWA (AP) NATO Sec-' retary General Joseph L u n s opened the 25th-anniversary ses- i sion of North Atlantic Alliance foreign ministers Teusday with a warning against over-opti- mism about the benefits of de- tente with lhe Soviet Union. The Soviets consider detente' a "one-way process serving the i exclusive interests of the Soviet I he said. "The reality is that detente is not yet an established Luns added. "It is simply the goal of our policies and hopes." 30 YEARS AGO U.S. troops! crushed a German attcmnl to burst out of the American :rapj boUling up perhaps 2f> lo Nazis below Cherbourg. Cliff Benedict NE is scheduled to open July 15 to kick off the program in Iowa. Cedar Rapids will be the state headquarters for the Seventh Step Foundation. Other Offices May said offices in Fort Madison and Anamosa will follow soon. "As soon as we get off the ground and get people into the program, we'll start he said. "We didn't just pick Cedar Rapids out of the clear blue May continued. "In Iowa City, Cedar Rapids and i Waterloo, there are more pro- i bationers than in Des Moines. j "A lot of research went into picking this location. The es- j tablishment of this initial j chapter will be crucial. We'll have to start a working rela- tionship throughout the slate. More Jobs "Cedar Rapids also has a low unemployment rate so it will be easier lo get jobs for parolees." Cedar Rapids will be the j 35th Seventh Step chapter out- side prisons. There are 46 more chapters inside prisons acrors the nation. When the local office gets off the ground, a primary thrust of the program will be helping juveniles who are "beyond help." Dispel Image "We want to dispnl the theories juveniles have about emulation of tough said May. "We'll go into the schools and talk to the guy in school who's pushing every- body around. George May "We'll take him into the prisons and show him what it's like. We want to keep him from going down the same road we've gone." May added that in some states juveniles labeled as "incorrigible" by the judges are released to the Seventh Step Foundation on probation. "We certainly want to help anybody who needs a helping said May. He said that offer was extended to women convicts, too. "Hard-Core" May said the foundation was particularly interested in "hard-core criminals. Those are the people who are really respected in prisons. "He's .the guy who really has problems and we're out to help him help himself." May emphasized that "we're not penal reformists, we're people reformists. We try to encourage living up to the rules and regulations of prisons. We're not trying to reform the system. "We say live within the sys- tem and reform yourself." He predicted that the local office would begin a "WATS line rap line" sometime in the future. A number would be es- tablished that could be called troll-free by anybody from anywhere in Iowa anytime of day. Main Objective "If a guy is down to noth- ing, maybe thinking of com- mitting a crime, or maybe committed a minor infraction and is scared to hell he's going to be sent back up, he can give us a call and rap with said May. "It's very definitely been proven to be helpful." All the group's efforts point toward one objective: main- taining the freedom of the in- dividual. The seven steps can be likened to seven command- step beginning with a letter from the word freedom. The seventh step reads: "Maintaining our own free- dom, we pledge ourselves to help others as we have been helped." for the Finest' in Paints MULEKOFF'S J ten of ivtrything for tin homi Drapery Dept., 2nd Floor Open Thursday 9 'til 9 While our Drapery Department is "ON THE MOVE" Save Very soon, our tfcparfmenr will be moving to their newly remodeled loca- tion on our 5th floor.
