Whether it igushes from a hydrant to wet the feeft oif inner city children, or laps at the side of a cabin cruises: f&r the' enjoyment of their more fortunate neighbors, wate* offers an almost universal measure of escape from the summer heat. , . „>' The joys of water are many and varied. A cool tub beckons at thej end of a day's work. A plastic wading pool sauepls with small-fry in the back yard. An early swimmer likes a morning dip, or a gaggle of teen-agers congregate oji«a sandy beach. y Water can be as-placid .as a canoe gliding in the moon ffcfc or as churned up as a resort lake full of water skiers, can be as picturesque as a clutch of sailboats, as awe inspiring as Niagara Falls, as dangerous as the Colorado Rapids. It is as commonplac'ei as a lawn sprinkler and welcome as the rain that breaks a hot dry spell. It is as modern as surfing, and as old-fashioned as skipping stones.: ti Water is the chief jewel in summer's crown. It cascades in the rivers, sparkles in the fountains, and puddles at the curbs for the benefit of sma*l boys. Treated with respect1 hi it"_ natural habitat, it is-one of 'the major joysofthe-sum- jrtarAaaaann. Pfc. Ronald Weister Word of the death' July 3 in Vietnam of Pfc.

Upward Bound Program In Full Swing at Walsh Upward Bound, the federal program to motivate underachieving, disadvantaged h i gi. school students, is in full motion at Walsh College. "I am impressed — this is a sharp, intelligent group of students," said Elvin Sutherland, a Walsh business instructor who is chairman of the Upward Bound program at the college. The eight - week summer program, which began June 24 and •continues until Aug. 17, is funded by an $88,832 grant from the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO). The program was transferred to Walsh after two years at Mount Union College in Alliance. Among the 26 girls and 34 boys in the program, 23 attended previously at Mount Union. The 60 students, who are served "by a staff of 27, are from the following high schools: ■ Timken, McKinley, Glenwood, Canton . South, Sandy Valley, Alliance, Massillon Washington, West Branch, Salem, Steubenville and Steubenville Catholic Central. • • The students are living in a Walsh dormitory and attending informal, small classes in a variety of subject areas. No tests or grades are given. The idea of the program is to reawaken in the students an interest in learning and impress upon them the necessity to improve their high school marks •and study habits so that they can be admitted to college. Of the 25 high school graduates in the 1967 program at Mount Union, all were accepted into college or other post-high school institution. The summer program is open lo students who will be high school juniors and seniors next Walter Mack Memorial Fund Created By Loan Foundation The Walter Mack Memorial Fund has been started by the Student Loan F ou n da t i ion, Charles T.

Upward Bound shows its students that scholarships and loans are available for their college education. Staff members work with college admissions offices in trying to secure places for Upward Bound "graduates." Upward Bound was praised as a worthwhile federal program in the recent report of President Johnson's Riot Commission. The nine - month followup, which will begin in September, is an important part, of the program. During this phase, Upward Bound personnel will visit the homes of students, contact their high school counselors, principals and teachers and bring the students back to the campus for monthly programs. Class sessions began a week ago. Some students are taking courses for high school credit. Some are taking an English composition course for college credit. The first issue of the Upward Bound newspaper, which will be named in a contest, was issued this week. The editor is Michael Stevenson of 211 Monroe Ave. SE in Canton. Candidates for chairman, co- chairman and secretary were campaigning for the town council elections this week. Each student: and faculty member has a vote on the council. Through the town council, students make decisions within the framework of rules and regulation s established by Upward Bound and Walsh College. Two students who were in the Upward Bound program at Mount Union last year were selected to attend the Yale Summer School at Yale University. They are Victoria Williams of 8603 Dix St., Waynesburg, a and Linda Palm of 1300 St. Elmo Ave. NE, Canton, a McKinley High School graduate. Their selection was announced 'by Edgar H.
