Correspondence from girl scout Roundup by Barbara Riley Roundup correspondent Farragut Idaho this past week at Roundup was a full one for sure. There were so Many things to see and do that we possibly keep up with them All. Every Day there were career consultations forum discussions Flag ceremonies and demonstrations. A typical Day would Start at 7 . With All rising to prepare for breakfast. We had a duty Chart which changed from meal to meal so that one time you might be a fire builder and the next a Cook or that cherished lob of clean up. The breakfasts were very Good sometimes being French Toast and fresh fruit or scrambled eggs and Toast but always very filling. Afterwards we could do most anything we wanted to until lunch time. One Day we took a hike to what we Call this was the Only place where one can see the whole Encampment. It was absolutely breathtaking. Our lunch and rest hour were from 12 to 2 . During this time we were confined to our respective areas so that we could rest or write or read. Most of the afternoons were spent in the demonstrations area where we watched demonstrations of other patrols. After each patrol performed a certain number were selected to go on to the demonstrations area to be viewed by the general Public. We were fortunate in having ours be one of those picked to go on. For our demonstration we built a red covered Bridge. It was in six main parts with about eight minor supports. It measured six feet Long and four feet wide and stood Over five feet tall. We chose this because Vermont is noted for its Many covered Bridges. Our evening meal was the most important one of the Day. This was when the special guests came and had dinner with us. One time we had an Indian and another time we had a Man by the name of William Gale. He was special because he was the second member of the Only three generation family on the campsite. The other members were his daughter and his Mother in Law. We ate heartily at dinner too sometimes having Chicken or steaks or Lamb. But much to our disappointment we had Idaho potatoes Only twice. We were told that Idaho had a very bad year with them. The evenings were devoted to Many kinds of activities. The two saturday nights were the Arena events for the whole Roundup but one night during the week each of the five main areas had Hollywood bed Complete with Maple headboard $6988 Haynes amp Kane inc. 434 main St. Phone,7713 Quot play it cools Hook up Tho Cable now dial 2-9395 better to 317 main St.2-9395 Bennington Bennington Banner Friday july 30, 1965-3 Ine Irro exodus f rom South r is ohs As jolts dwindle its own Arena night. At ours we saw and heard the dances and songs native to the countries of the visiting foreign girls in our own area. Other nights there were campfires and songs or Potlatch ceremonies. Our Potlatch ceremonies were derived from the Indian ceremonial custom when they gave to their friends a treasured item sometimes their mos priz de Possession and even their wives. At our ceremonies we exchanged gifts with girls we had become particularly Friendly with. Our Days ending with Bugle taps at 10 30. Although we were in the wilds of Idaho we weren to without Many luxuries. We had showers which would accommodate 24 girls at a time. These were Complete with Concrete floors and cold water. There was a special place outside the showers reserved for washing clothes and we Hung our wet things on various clotheslines which we designed ourselves. For hair dryers we had the terrifically hot Sun which dried it completely before we could get Back to our tents from the showers. In each of the main areas there was a Bank a Post office a trading Post and soft drink stands. We really had life quite easy and thanks to a congressional Bill last year we had army Protection 24 hours a Day. Monday evening july 26, there was planned a final Flag ceremony for the whole Encampment but unfortunately this had to be cancelled. About four of clock that afternoon our Camp director came running through our Camp shouting warnings to All the girls. A secure your tents girls a storm is coming with 40-mile-per-hour winds Quot was her message. So in the midst of our packing we storm lashed our Kitchen tent and prepared for trouble. We were scheduled to leave Roundup the next Day at noon so we had already torn Down our sleeping tents and packed them away. Thus All of us donned our rain Wear and gathered in our remaining tent. We had never seen such a storm As this one. The wind increased in velocity and then came the dust. Great big Clouds and swirls of red dust came at us and afterwards the tents were inches thick in it. Then came the rain and within an hour and one half it was All Over. Thinking Back on it now we agree that it was a completion to our trip. For those of us who had never travelled West be Priscil la m. Manson Manson a Lark or. And mrs. Edwin a. Manson of 341 Elm St., former residents of Fitchburg mass., announced the engagement of their daughter Priscilla Mary to Jeffrey g. Clark son of Robert h. Clark of 17 Holbrook St., North Adams mass., and mrs. Anna Clark of Rowley mass. Miss Manson was graduated from Fitchburg High school and from Burdett College in Boston mass. She is employed by attorney Franklin p. Jones of Bennington. Or. Clark was graduated from Drury High school North Adams and from the University of Bridgeport Bridgeport Conn. He is serving in the naval Reserve. No Date has been set for the wedding. Fore we had crossed the Mississippi River the Continental Divide looked out across open Prairie and Low rolling Hills until it looked like we could see the Edge of the world. To see the country without mountains was something like looking at a picture without a Frame. It looks All right Buti the Frame adds the finishing touches so that its perfect. We also saw the Rocky mountains capped with Snow and crossed the Washington Idaho Boundary to make our journey across Complete. In addition we saw the great lakes and experienced five different time changes. The first half of the girls left Roundup tuesday As we did and the rest on wednesday. Tears and sobs were frequent As the girls said Good Bye to their new friends. We took each others addresses promising to write and sometime see each other again. But in spite of the tears All of us were Happy. We had shared an experience of a lifetime. We had done and seen things Only a chosen few could do. Roundup will never really be Over for us for each time we Tell another scout about it we will live it again and again. To you scouts who happen to be Reading this we Hope that yours will be the Good Fortune to experience what we have experienced and then in turn to comeback and pass it on. Good Luck new York �?the exodus of negro americans from the South has slowed Down it is reported by statisticians of metropolitan life insurance. One reason for the Slack the statisticians Point out has been a decrease in employment opportunities in Northen areas. Net non White out migration from the South averaged Little More than 70,000 per year during the april 1960, to july 1963 period Only half the yearly average during the 1950s. Florida however is an exception. It gained More than 100,000 non White migrants in the 1950s but has lost 22,000 in the Early �?T60s. The Middle Atlantic and Pacific states were the Only areas which attracted substantial numbers of negroes during the 1960-1963 period with the Large influx of non White persons into new York and California continuing to be an outstanding characteristic of the population movement. Net increases through migration in new York and California were 183,000 and 114,000, respectively. Despite the reduced migration of negroes from the South that regions share of our total nonwhite population decreased from 56.1 per cent in april 1960, to 54.4 per cent in july 1963. At the same time new York California and Illinois increased their share from 18.7 to 20.1 per cent. For the White population the heaviest outflow in the Early 1960s occurred in Pennsylvania which lost nearly 270,000 migrants during this period and Over a half million in the prior decade similarly West Virginia had losses of 104,000 and 406,000 respectively. The 12 states of the North Central Region lost a total of about a million White migrants in the 3,4 year period.
