Great Bend Daily Tribune (Newspaper) - October 7, 1961, Great Bend, Kansas couxrr I V WILSON RESERVOIR ROADS ARE still in the planning stages, but they'll look like this when the project is completed. Mid- December 1961 is the deadline for access planning on the project which is scheduled for completion by 1966. Heavy lines on the map show relocations; shaded lines indicate county highways and fine block lines ore township roods. Roads serving farm families will be given top priority while those access roads across the reservoir will come next. Russell County commissioners have asked residents interest- ed in roadways to meet with them to discus planning and recommend necessary changes.

Of course, I wasn't'as graceful as all the Japanese girls, but I could do all the basic steps as many of the members had eagerly taught them to me the day before. During the opening ceremony of this four day national 4-H event which, is the highest reward for Japanese 4-H members, I could see the great enthusiasm which all the members and leaders have for the 4-H program here. After a short orientation meeting, the representatives from each of Ja- pans 43 prefectures marched be- hind their respective banners to the site of the opening ceremony. Since the weather is very hot .and humid here, the entire convention was held in a very beautiful Ja- panese garden surround'ng a Shin- to Shrine.

Well, Clelland Cole, outspoken editor of the St. John News, has this to say of the subject: As one little guy, in a little towni speaking his piece, I'd like to be on record as holding in com plete contempt, and despising as trash, any person who would toler- ate communism, or pretend that we can accept it as part of our way ofr life in America. America will either take her stand swiftly, militantly, be against communistic thinking completely, or be absorbed by the stinking, crawling, cancer of com- muoism.

One afternoon of the convention was devoted to juding contests just like we have at county and state events in Kansas. These were divi- ded into the areas of family and home improvement, crops and livestock. It was quite a challenge for me to participate intthis event and see how their foods' compared to ours. There wre also many discussions and lectures and time for singing and folk dancing to complete the program of this na- tional event.
