The committee of Commanding Officer, Camp Superintendent ano Educational Adviser, formed as an outcome from the recent distric meeting held at Ocalas, is functioning splendidly. .
There are three distinct phases in the Educational Program of Company 453. There are as follows: ed. ucation during leisure hours, sys. tematic instruction on the job and informal education during leisure hours.
Mr. Boudet recently stated that informal education during leisure hours is the direct means by which many of the boys become interested in the class work. This phase of the program Is recreational. Pleasure trips, baseball, diamondball, first aid, safety, life saving, glee clubi and dancing classes constitute this end of the system.
Correspondence courses are being pursued by three of the young men, two taking bookkeping and the oth.er air conditioning.
The number Of instructors have increased, there being nine in November and now there are 18.
Educational data, comparing the months of November and May are furnished by Adviser Boudet. November: elementary cou.ifser 5; high school, 5; vocational, 4; informal classes, 4; with a grand total of 18. Enrollment was 192 and the percentage of enrolees attending was 50 per cent.

EDITORIAL Tim'fe'‘?nby chari^ biir conditions of livng and the many phases of life which goes to make-up civilization, but it has net fettered the principles established by that immortal body of men that gave to the people of the United States the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Incidents that transpired last week in the city of Philadelphia, help recall the happenings that took place in the same place, one hundred and sixty years ago, 1776. It was in this old and famous principality that the Declaration of Independence was signed — July 4th. Yes! It was dra,wn up by the Continental Congress which was composed of such great and noble men as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Patrick Henry and many others whose names are familiar to all of us. They arrived for the convention by various modes of travel which were then considered excellent. Some arrived by stage coach, others by horseback, carriage, pony express or barge. The bell (Liberty Bell) that rang ceaselessly for many hours cracked in several places under the strain, is located there. Dijring a very colorful ceremony, when the Democrats were holding their National Couv^ention in the historic city, it was tapped wdth a gavel by an outstanding party leader as others looked on. Last week, thousands upon thousands arrived for another convention. This one, however, was a far cry and different in form from the one held during the Colonial Days. They arrived for the occasion by various modes of travel. Airplanes, dirigibles, trains, mdern liners and automobiles were all employed transporting the delegates and visitors. Our Nation has changed in many aspects. Its boundaries,’ populfition, industries, commerce, education are far different but fundamentally the thought of Freedom is the same as in 1776. ORDERSISSUED FOR EVACUATiON IF STORM HITS All Precautions To Be Taken To Protect Life, Property Plans of evacuation of Camp Sp-3 (Co. 453, CCC), in event of po,ssible storms of severity to warrant the abandonment of the camp were promulgated in a “Standing Order,” issued by Commanding Officer, L. P. Warren, Captain 349th Inf. All available Government transportation will stand by, with necessary drivers and fuel, ready to move on instant notice. Personnel, except those on special detail, will be evacuated to local hotels or county court house, abandonment being made cn orders of che camp commander or his duly authorized representative. The following personnel will remain at the camp site and will protect the Government Property located therein: line officers, storekeeper, company clerk and fo:uen. rollees. Every precaution is being made to assure the safety of all members and provide rations until the storm period is passed. Enrollees, includ(Continued on Page Two) SAFETY PRACTICES DISCUSSED AT MEET Every phase of the theme safety was given in talks at the mass meeting of the enrollees of the company Monday night held in the me.ss hall of the headquarters. W. W. Stephens won the prize of $T00 presented by Mr. Hicks. Selwyn Ives who was scheduled to speak on “Americanism and Citizenship,” due to being called out of town at the last minute, was unable to appear before the boys. Safety Director G. N. Hicks, in charge of the meeting, was introduced by Captain L. P. Warren. Prior to talks which were given by enrollees, Stephens, Fletcher and Barnes, Hicks asked for suggestions as to the procedure to be used in the meeting that will be held in the future. Wayne Stephens, wrinner, discuss ed at length the safety rules that are used by the Using Service and Army. Safeguarding against accidents caused from sharp and oointed tools was the main point brought out. Earl Fletcher, close runner-up for the prize, gave a talk stressing rules pertaining to the transportation of the boys and the practice of smoking each other’s cigarettes. Roy Barnes, took as his theme for his brief talk the routine and authentic information that is required by various officials when an accident takes place. PROGRESS MADE BY STUDENTS IN EDUCATION PLAN The Educational system of the camp has made tremendous progress during the past six months, from November of last year through May of this year. Adviser M. A. Boudet has formulated one of the best routines in district “F.” One of the outstanding achievements has been the fact that the Using Service personnel and the Army personnel have gotten behind the program and are boosting it to their utmost. Every foreman of the ECW teaches at least one class a week in camp. Enrollees receiving instruction on the job (during work hours) last month were 48 or 25.3 per cent which is an increase of the entire total as there were none dui'ing the month of November. A total of 948 man-hours of systematic instruction on the job was given the men. Jobs such as truck trails construction, concrete lining, nurseries, moving trees; seed coHectS^ng, building walks, maps (topographic), survey of grade lines and mechanice were taken up. Another advancement made in education is noted in the number of pupils attending classes, other than those held at camp.

Warren, Commanding A. C. Altvater, Project Superintendent Tbe first edition of the weekly publication published by members of Company 453, later to be known as the “Rogers-Post,” was started on September 11, 1935. Although the first edition was one without a name a contest was begun immediately to select a name for it with a prize to be awarded to the enrollee suggesting the most appropriate title for the publication. It so happened ^that at this same time, the world was mourning the loss ef two of our country’s most distinguished and beloved citizens, Will Rogers, humorist, and Wiley Post, famous aviator, so in honor of these two Americans Enrollee L. F. Singleton suggested the winning name ,“The Rc^ersPost,” and was awarded the prize. The initial journalistic effort of the staff was b six-page affair printed on a very poor grade of yellow paper. The staff of the first issue was as follows: AdVisCT, M. A. Boudet, associate; Cheshire, Spillman, Morgan, Rannou, Janowski, McBfc^, :Singleton, Csisey, McDowell. The first eight-page “Rogers-Post” appeared on December 4 and from then on never came under that number of pages during any publication. At first the art work was done by Red Rannou and then taken over very capably by Mrs. Boudet, wile of the Educational Adviser. As time went on “The Rogers-Post” continued to thrive and before long was recognized week after week in the “Happy Days,” national weekly publication of the Civilian Conservation Corps. The Happy Days system of rating is: 1 star, below average; 2 THE ROGERS-POST stars.-gGOd; 3 stars, very good; 4 stars, extraordinary and "The Rcgers-Post” was within the 2-star or 3Etar class every week, a record of which we may well be proud. The publishing of our periodical, as is true in any other undertaking required funds, therefore the advertisements of leading business establishments in Sebring and Avon Park were solicited with much success. In this way, our paper was different from numerous camp papers as it is strictly self supporting. And now like any other young and growing enterprise, “The Rogers-Post” has decided to expand, and with this expansion will come a regular printed newspaper type publication printed every two weeks and with nationally known products advertised. This type of paper will give our friends everywhere a better knowledge of what is going on in Company 453. With the help of the enrollees and merchants it is hoped that our new journalistic venture will be a success in every respect. O Topic around camp for the past few days has been — will the camp remain in Sebring or is it to be moved? O Everyone welcomes the new Sergeant and wishes him the best of luck. It is believed that if more time had been available the position could have been filled from the company’s rank. We have a few' “natural born” leaders. O The average percentage of participation in the Educational program for enrollees for the month of May was 94. A mark that is fast showing the worth of the educational program in the camp. O Captain Warren’s evacuation plan is excellent. O— It is expected that our contestants entered in the Life Saving Course, to be held in Olustee, will bring home the bacon. ^ — O — An unforgetable impression: the ovation given President Rooseyelt by the massed humanity, 115,000 •strong.

It is with profoimd pleasure that the Rogers-Post presents this article by her). It is with a great deal of pride and personal pleasure that I extend my congratulations to our Camp and the Editorial Staff of the~Rogers-Post. Your paper has always been interesting, w'ell set up and a credit to the Company. You are now step; ping u^ another notch and I can only say,— -well done and God Ble.ss you. From the first day of a CCC Camp in Sebring, I have been intensely inte?-ested in its welfare, aims, growth and achievements. It has been my privilege to mingle and work with the boys in the camp, and I can only speak in the highest terms of them as I have known them. I have seen them come in as "rookies,” developing physically, mentally, morally and spiritually and after months in the camps, passing off into the regular stream of life better equipped to face the odds they all must meet. With very few exceptions, I believe that the boys who enroll in CCC Camps appreciate the opportunities offered them. The interest and attendance at the classes speak for the desire they have to equip themselves for the future. Early in the history of the Camp, the Salvation Army was asked to be responsible for services being held at the camp, using all denominations and holding non-sectarian FRIDAY. JULY 3, IS6 ’* j services. I was the officer chosaii for this work and the results have I been more gratifying as aPtendance I is not compulsory. To me, because of my inti:nate knowledge of our Camp and its workings. I believe that the CCC Camps have been one of the most practical and successful projects of the New Deal, and that in the near future our country is going to be better, safer and more loyal to the high standards that made it what it is, because of the confidence of this great movement. I have sincerely appreciated the cooperation of the Commanding officers and the personnel. In closing I again say “I congratulate you.” A crew imder supervision of Geo.

PAGE FOUR THE ROGERS-POST FRIDAY. JULY 3, 1936 LISTEN!! By R. G. FARR We bet that several boys w.ll be sorry that Fred Landrum left. Work is good for you boj’s. What is this we hear about a certain little incident in Noi'th Carolina, Gore? If we had to “rob the cradle” to do that, we’d quit. We hear that “Specks” Messer has been giving those pretty little Fox girls the Eagle eye. Stick in there with them “Specks.” It is rumored that “Ladies’ Man,” "Baby Face” Taylor doesn’t rate quite so high in Avon Park any more. We wonder why? McBride’s lady friend won the local beauty contest. Have you noticed Mac the last few days??? “Chubby” Brantley still has the record for being the first in the mess hall. Earl J. Kelley was operated upon Friday. This “Goldbricking” will sure get you down. Sorry to hear ot your misfortune, boy LEASE EXPIRES AND NEW SITE IS BEING SOUGHT (Continued from Page One) on the land will take place within a short time by a party who is interested in obtaining the site for a home. There is no reason for enrollees to be disturbed over the matter as they would be trnsferred to other camps in the event such a thing did take place. C. R. Vinten, regional inspector for the National Park Service, in a statement to The Rogers-Post, Monday afternoon, stated tie did not the master, but it was his persmiSk;^!nion that the camp would not Bfe “snatched” out, and that he did not see any reason to be upset. The first and paramount issue, that concerns the citizens in Sebring. Highlands county, as well as others throughout Florida is the fact that work on the Florida Bo^ tanical Garden and Arboretum would be stopped if the camp were moved. The project is of vital interest and importance to the state at large as the enterprise will be a great benefactor to it. Merchants of Sebring and Avon Park would lose between $5,000.00 and $6,000.00 a month if Co. 453 was disbanded. The forenamed amount is approximately the money that is turned loose from sarlaries of the enrollees, ECW and Army personnels and bills for supplies used by the services. PARK JOTTINGS The survey crew, recently imdertook the job of moving an irrigation system from the hammock entrance to Tiger Branch bridge. The system which consists of a pump, power unit and pipe line, is for the purpose of watering the newly planted vegetation. After two days of work the men were called off the jub due to rainfall that was sufficient to care for the shrubs. The project will be continued and made permanent within the next few‘ days. A letter was just received from “Polly” 'Weybrecht, who recently left the CCC to assume his duties as As. The staff of the Regers -Post wishes to thank the firms and individuals for the aid and backing given in publishing this paper. Without each of you this publication would have been impossible.
