Jaycees Scour Area for Books Needed at Peace Corps School Driver Class Begins June U TWO RIVERS The first day of spring is not a day on the calendar but a feeling. Ask the housewife. She knows. One day about this time each year, the typical housewife rises in the morning with a certain stirring in her blood. And on that day, with the energy of a, miniature atom bomb plant, pursues the task of spring clean- ing. In any given household, may- be a small truckful of col- lectanea will be discarded be- fore the entire process is over. Chances are, though that those old books packed away in cardboard boxes and collecting dust will be spared the fate of junior's broken toys and last year's Easter bonnet. Somehow, there seems to be something sa- cred about good books and well, just throwing them out seems sort of heartless. Sort of like turning out old friends into the cold. Book Drive The Two Rivers Junior Cham- ber of Commerce is hoping to gather about a ton of these books and feels it has a worthy recipient for them. About two months ago. Mi- chael J. Clark, a Peace Corps- man, wrote to the reporter de- scribing the plight of a school; in Cameroon, West Africa atj which he teaches. Clark wrote that the Peace Corps teaching volunteers are doing the best job possible at the school and that the Cameroonian students "are grasping at any straw of education they can get." but the problem of the teacher and stu- ent is, at best, a difficult one because of the desperate needj for textbooks in the area.

The wounded president was carried across the street to a boarding house, where he died the following morning. After firing the fatal shot, Booth stabbed a military aide. Then he vaulted over the balus- trade of the box to the stage 11 feet below. In bis jump, one of the spurs Booth was wearing caught on a picture of Washington which decorated the box. It also tore the edge of a flag draped above the picture. When Booth hit the stage, a bone in his left leg was broken. Dr. George J. OlszewsM, his- torian for the National Park Service, which is restoring the old theater to its 1865 state, has no means of knowing whether the encounter with the picture of the Father of his Country led to Booth's fractured leg. But he reflects that if this were true, there would be a certain grim historic justice to it. Cornered In Barn Grimmer justice overtook Booth 12 days later. Federal cavalry cornered him in a Vir- ginia barn and set it afire, in hopes of driving him out and king him alive. But an over- zealous trooper, contrary to the wishes of his officers, thrust a carbine through a crack in the barn and shot him down. In the great hue and cry after the assassination, four persons were hanged, including Mary E. Suratt, keeper of a boarding house where Booth often met his fellow conspirators, and four got long prison terms. Now, 100 years later, the scene of the assassination, tha red brick theater on 10th Street N.W., between E and F, is un- dergoing a top-to-bottom recon- struction.
