Young Peruvian Likes TV The Best; Sees First Snow, Rain BY LARRY SOPPEL What does a 14-ycar-oid boy from Trujilio, Peru, who sees little rain, snow or girls like about Columbus? Why tciovision, of course. So says Samy (pronouced Sammyi Loebl who is visiting In the United States ((3olumbiis for nine weeks) with a group of other boys — eight Catholic and one Lutheran — and a school teacher. THE BOYS GO to Father Francis Hickcy's school in Tru.iillo. Fr. Hickey used to be at tho Newman Club at Ohio State University. When ho decided to come bade to tho U.S. with some of his students, ho chose Columbus. It was the job of the Jewish Family Service to obtain lodging for Samy during his nine week . stay in Columbus.

THIS TOPIC is not only the national collegiate debate topic to be discussed in all intercollegiate debates this year, but has created an unusual amount of interest due to the fact that it was ^. major issue in President Kennedy's re¬ cent campaign. Yeshiva students will talte both the negative and affirmative positions during their tour. This marks the third meeting between Yeshiva University and Ohio State University debaters. The adversaries are tied with a win and a loss for each.

Thoy lived in Peru for 34 years and Samy was born on Jan. 14, 14 years ago. Samy and the group flew from Peru to New York and took a bus to CJolumbus, In the middle of a snow storm. Also, this-T^'as Samy's first glimpse of snow. You see it never snows in Peru, or for that matter it never rains. And what does the sun-tanned Samy think of our weather? Well not very much ("It's too cold"). The lowest temperature in Tru¬ jilio is 50 degrees. WHILE HEKE Samy is attend¬ ing classes at Bexley's Cassing¬ ham Junior High School. How do Poverty and progress have loomed large in thc life of Joseph Meyerhoff, tho new general chairman of thc United Jewish Appeal, .succeeding Philip M. Klutznick of Park Forest, 111. Klutznick resigned ii-fter he was appointed by President Kennedy as a member of thc United States Mission to the United Nations. Meyerhoff, a home- buiidor and developer of shopping centers, has fought poverty and battled for progress through a multitude of civic and philanthropic activities since early manhrod, Lot it be a question of philan¬ thropy or a civic project on a massive or individual scale or a local or international level, the .luggostion is always the same, "See Joe." His friends say that he uses a "soft sell" fund-raising technique. The "soft sell" blends with his appearance. He is 5 feet 5M inches tall, weighs 160 pounds, sports a shoelace moustache, 1 s well- groomed and J3peaks in cultured well modulated tones. He gives the appearance of a ballet master or a professor of philosophy. "JOE TALKS in whispers," a friend said. You can't interrupt as he talks of tho need for human beings. All you can say is Okay Joe, put me down for another $50(X)." When he received word of his schools differ? Weil, in Peru there arc few coed schools. His isn't and that ia exactly what he doesn't care for here. The girls are "too noisy." Naturally Samy is asked many questions each day and to his surprise everyone wants to know about dating In Peru. This is a surprise because in, Peru thc boys don't mix with thc girls until they are 17 or 18. "They just don't go out together." THB DARK, CURLY-HAIRED Samy likes studying. In Peru ho studies Algebra, English, Span¬ ish, history of Peru, geography and physical education. He swims a lot, plays soccer and docs the things most 14-yoar-olds like to do. He goes to school from 8:15 a.m. to 11:45 and from 1:45 to 5 p.m. Thc food here and in Peru is very much the same, Samy says. "The only thing we don't have is the Empire State Build¬ ing. That's what wc need." When asked why tho Empire State Building, he answered, "For tourists." TELEVISION is Samy's favor- (Continuad on paga 4) ' 'i. .^ Mrs. Paulette Fink being chosen to head the United Jewish Appeal, Meyerhoff was in Ctilcago at a meeting of the Na¬ tional Home Builders Association, of which he was president in 1946. In a matter of hours he was here to accept his new post.
