You may imagine my surprise on arriving in the parking area to
find several hundred cars already there.
It was only then that I realized that this was a big affair.
When we arrived in the hall we found over six hundred young
people sitting on one side of the building, facing an elevation that
was occupied by their parents.
The children ranged in ages from 12 to 21. All these children
had been hooked on drugs and were there for help. The girls sat
on one side, the boys on the other.
The youngsters were singing songs when we arrived. The girls
would carry one part with their sweet voices and then the boys
would come in with their deep bass voices. They sang beautifully.
There was joy in their voices because they were now happy to be
in a place where they were being helped to recover their real
The boys then gave their experiences.
Suddenly all the children started clapping and cheering as a
man walked across the floor in front of them.
This man, a former alcoholic, had started this work three years
ago. It was the only work of its kind in Florida. Another unit had
already been established in another town and a third was now
being organized. The aim is to have a unit in every large centre in
the state. Already "Seed" had won national recognition and had
received several awards' for its work among children.
a ,a .
This man spoke briefly to the parents explaining how this work
A new child was always a liar. They all tried to hide the truth
about themselves. The first job of the organization was to get
these children to tell the truth. They had to make them know
that they were now among friends who loved them and wanted to
help them. The only way this could be done they must be
prepared to stand up and publicly acknowledge the things they
Thad I ildren learned to do this when they realized that they
were all in the same boat and could help each other by telling the
t uth. They were made too understaral that they didn't have tn be
reThi d (the stred asking questions. He told them to hold
their hands up in answer to his questions.
How many had been "turned on" by their parents? A few
haow mny y older brothers and sisters? More hands went up.
How many had been sold drugs by their teachers? A few hands.
How many by policemen? A few hands.
Mot ofte dhad te At rt dh d' ushers" who hung around
the school grounds. They were not asked to reveal the names of
these people because the children would be injured.
How many had started on marijuana? All hands went up.
How many had moved on to all the other drugs within six
months? A large number of hands.
The reason for this question is to disprove the claim that
marijuana doesn't lead to other drugs.
The question was how could these children obtain the money
for drugs. A person who is hooked on hard drugs needs $250 a
How many of you stole money to buy drugs? All hands went
How many by shop lifting? All hands.
How many had snatched purses? All hands went up.
How many from parents? All hands.
How many by armed robbery? A large number, both boys and
girls. They acknowledged using both knives and guns.
And so the questions went on, each one revealing the extent
and seriousness of this problem.
This man finally gave parents the good news that 95 percent of
the children who went through this programme never went back
The reason for these meetings with parents is that the children
are separated from their parents while they are with "Seed".
They are placed with foster parents.
"That's my boy over there, the one with the blonde hair," my
friend's wife told me when a handsome youngster stood up.
"Your boy is here?", I asked in surprise.
"Yes," she said.
Later her husband told me that he had been hooked for five
years before they found out. They found out when he was called
by police in the middle of the night to tell him that their boy was
in the guard room. This happened several times. Finally he was
sent to "Seed" by the courts. Now they were very hopeful.
He told me that by the time children had reached the eighth
grade in American schools 85 percent of them had been involved
in drugs to some extent.
* * * ***
The children were drawn from all kinds of homes, both white
In reply to questions by the man who headed this work, many
hands went up when asked whether they had come from poor
homes, a large number when asked if they were from middle
income homes and a few from wealthy homes.
Some of the children had been brought to "Seed" by their
parents, a few had come in on their own looking for help, most of
them had been sent by the courts.
Instead of sending children to reform centres or prison the
courts now hand young addicts.over to "Seed".
During the evening my friend's wife pointed out a black youth
who was now one of the supervisors at the meetings.
"He had a crime record two inches thick," she said. "Since he
has been with 'Seed' he is completely reformed and is a fine
example for the younger children."
+,* * ***
My wife and I came away from this meeting deeply impressed
and wondering how we might help with this work.
After hearing from my Nassau friend what he had been told by
an employee: ... I am beginning to wonder how far drug pedlars
have penetrated the schools in Nassau.
Certainly this is something to think about ... and to start
working on before it goes too far.
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

A FEW DAYS ago a young couple from Nassau had lunch with
me at my hotel here in Miami.
SThe husband is one of the really fine young men on Bay Street.
His ife cscharming. Thy havea t rilin eon x n te
drug aadicts. These youngsters impressed me so much that I seem
to tell anyone who will listen about the grim story they told of
the spread of drug addiction in the U.S. ... and of their own
recovery through the help of an organization operating under the
name of "Seed of Hope".
I commented that, happily, there didn't seem to be much of a
problem in Nassau.
And then he told me a story that has caused me great concern.
He told me that he had an extraordinarily fine young
Bahamian who was in charge of one of his departments. He didn't
say so but I gathered from the name of the young man and the
school he attended that he was coloured.
This young man had told my friend that while he was at a
certain high school in Nassau he and many of the other students
smoked marijuana which they obtained on the school's campus.
He gave it up because he found that it was causing him to keep
This is one of the rare cases in which a youngster had the good
sense to realize that this drug was doing him harm and he had the
moral strength and courage to break the habit and to rise above
the company he had b en ke in.
gr e all liv every restricted mlivesan W om ie ord .wnt smn
tha are aliedpem alls far ndeurs ago when I was brought into
contact with the needs of crippled children in the Bahamas.
Before I was faced with the needs of a single child I was not
aware that there were any crippled children in the islands who
ne canyn had asked me at the time whether there were any
crippled children in the colony I would have probably thought
for a second and replied that there were probably a few. .
I never saw any of these children and so I would have taken it
for granted that there were not many.
I was later to discover that there were many crippled children
in the islands, and for 20 years I became involved in their lives.
Incidentally, I was talking with Arthur Finniesson a few days
ago. He told me that Bahanuan parents are now bringing their
children to Miami to be fitted with braces by him.
They are finding this a hardship because of the cost. He said a
man had been to him that day for a brace for his child that cost
$20 but he had an additional bill of over $100 travelling and
I am sorry for these people.
* * * **
Anyway, let us get back to the story I started to tell you about
drug addiction among children in the U.S.
I found out that Monday and Friday evening meetings of the
"Seed of Hope" are open to parents of children who are taking
part in the rehabilitation programme being carried on by this
I knew that one of my Rotary friends was involved in this
work. I asked him whether I could attend one of these meetings.
He said he would try and arrange it for me but that it was
difficult. Any visitor had to be cleared and approved by the
Executive Committee of which he is a member.
He explained that the reason for this precaution was that drugs
pedlars have tried to penetrate the organization. if they could
get in they might lay drugls around ... then tip off the authorities
that the place was handling drugs. This would completely
discredit the work.
He got me cleared through the committee for a Friday night
My wife usually comes to Miami every Saturday to spend the
week-end with me. I phoned and asked her to come on Friday
instead so she could see what was going on at a "Seed" meeting.
My Rotary friend gave me one of his business cards as a means
of introduction when I arrived at the entrance. He said that his
wife would be at the point where everyone is required to sign in.
She would meet us there for purposes of identification and then
take us to the room where the meeting wasr held.
The meetings of this organization are held in the grand stand
building of the abandoned Tropical Park race track.
On Friday morning my Rotary friend phoned to tell me how
to get inside the grounds. He said that the main gate was closed
but that I should go to a small entrance at the far end of the
"You can't miss it," he told me, "you will see other cars
turning into this entrance."
I wondered what would happen if I missed the entrance and
there were no cars there when I arrived in the area'.
: Up to this time I had no idea of what I would find at this
sheeting. I kept thinking of it as a small affair.
** ** *
This was the kind of thing that happened to me in my work for
No matter how many pictures I published in The Dibune,
about our crippled children's clinics or how many articles I wrote
about this work, it was only by visiting a clinic that anyone got
an idea of the extent of the work being done for our children by
dedicated Florida specialists. The unfailing comment of a visitor
was: "I had no idea it was so big".
When we arrived at the entrance to Tropical Park we were
surprised to see a steady stream of cars turning into a narrow
lane. We followed. The grandstand was some distance from this
entrance. All along the route were check points ... young men
were at these spots pointing the way with flashlights and holding
up any unlikely looking person.

because he was so handsome. Just like I imagined him to
be. He seemed to lke me a lot thai first night and asked
me t0 go to a motel with him. I refused. We made another
date and again he asked me to go to a motel with him.
Thlis time I went. I am not what you would call an "easy
number," but I just couldn't help myself.
After that he quit calling me, but I'd call him and we'd
talkr a while. He hasn't asked to see me again and I
am going crazy. I think about him night and day.
How can I get him to return my love, Abby? Don't teH
me to forget him. I tried and I can't.

DEAR SWPEE'ITIEART: Ie's seen year fall line sad it's
so sale. [et time, held something bactu]
wedding here in Honolulu as that is where we are both
from. It will be a large church wedding, and I am sure
we'*H be getting lots of wedding gifts.
We WOUld rather 80( haV t 4 packr and ship these 4fts
to the mainland, so can you suggest a good way to tell
people to pleas write down what they had in mind to give
us, enclose the money, and let us make the phase whe
we get to the mainland? Or don't you care for that idea?
DEAR READER: Requesting money nastead of a gift is
awkwrud even the the reason maes sense If I were yes,
I'd packr sad ship the gifts to the malaland
DEAR ABBY: I am a 65-year old unmarried woman
and I still feel young enough to dance. There is something
that has annoyed me for years.
When I go to a dance I just sit there with the rest of
the unaccompanied women while all the men look us over,
and when one decides he wants to dance with me, he asksr
me. Abby, I feel that with Women's Lib giving women so
many more rights, the ladies should be able to look the
men over and decide who they want to dane with. Once in
a blue moon they announce "Ladies Choice," then the
ladies get to ask the gentlemen.
Will you please see what you can do to give us women
a better break? They say a lady must wait for a gentleman
to makre the first move. HOPING FOR A CHANCE
DEAR HOPING: Who are "they"? Next time yo oto
a dance, unaccompaaled, look the gentlemen o er,g ra
when you see one you'd likre to dance with, ask HIM. ru 1
bet he'Hl feel honored. And if he asks you why you did the
asklag, tell him Abby said it was all right. Gentlemen?

From a single branch, we've grown up to branches throughout the Bahamas providing

KIWANIS IS A SERVICE ORGANISATION for men. Its
members voluntarily share in the burden of community
leadership; they do the human helpful things that
unfortunates cannot do for themselves; that men working
as individuals simply cannot accomplish; that governments
are not geared to do; and that desperately need doing! for
the good of all concerned.
Its members are motivated by a common desire to serve,
plus a desire for fellowship.
Kiwanis clubs render voluntary service to youth,
community and nation. There is activity for every taste and
aptitude. Kiwanians wo~rk with boys and girls, with senior
citizens, with the poor, the mentally retarded, and the sick.
They help increase church attendance, recruit teachers,
improve safety standards, leading conservation drives and
point the way to career possibilities for high school and
college students through its Key Club movement.
The Kiwanis movement came into being in 1915 in
Detroit, Michigan. On January 21 of that year, the first
club was formed for businessmen in that city.
On November 1, 1916, the first Canadian club was
formed in Hamilton, Ontario. It was during that year that
the name "Kiwanis", which roughly means "self
expression", was formally applied to the movement.
In 1924, Kiwanis amended its constitution and became
known as Kiwanis International. But it was not until 1961.
that the truly international extension came into effect with
the formation of clubs in Mexico and in 1964, Nassau.
Kiwanis International today has spread throughout the
world, having clubs in more than 40 nations on all of the
continents, with a growing membership of more than a
quarter of a million men.

1965, tifie the Kiai oee n ig ctv

THE QUEE~tN ELIZABETH SPOR TS CENTRE ON MARCH 24 & 25i
THE FORT MONTAGU KIlWANIS CLUB has
gone from Moon Rocks to Mickey Mouse in
seeking central attractions for their annual
Agricultural and Horticultural Fair, now in its fifth
year and well established as an important feature
on the Bahamas' calendar of events.
The "Mickey Mouse Revue," a unique display of
animated puppets portraying the most famous of Walt
Disney's character creations, is expected to be the
crowd-drawing feature of the fifth annual Fair, scheduled
for March 24 and 25 at the Queen Elizabeth Sports Centre.
Donald Duck, Goofy, Dumbo, Minnie Mouse and, of
course, Mickey Mouse himself, will all be there, with their
friends, forming a moving, performing orchestra.
As with the Moon Rocks of two years ago, the purpose
of the Mickey Mouse Revue is to get people into the fair
grounds, where they will see the true purpose of the Fair
since its inception: the encouragement of agricultural and
horticultural endeavour in the Bahamas.
The theme of the fair this year is "Ode to Bahamaland,"
in recognition of the Bahamas' forthcoming attainment of

The garden clubs will be there, displaying the beautiful
plants and flowers that thrive in the Bahamian climate.
There will be the individual enterprising gardeners of the
Bahamas, vying for prizes in the 19 divisions and dozens of
classes of agricultural and horticultural competition.
And, as in the past, the Kiwanis Club is also sponsoring
competitions in the crafts for school children, both to
encourage them to work with their hands, and, again, to get
them into the fair's atmosphere of encouragement for
Of course, with thousands of people expected to visit the
fair site during its two days, ample provision is being made
to feed them and to meet their demands for refreshment.
Candy, cake, beverages and sandwiches will all be on sale
in many of the booths to be set up, and native delicacies
will be offered to those interested in a full meal while on
For entertainment, there will be the usual wide
assortment of games, and dancing in the evenings for the
young and those who think themselves still young.
Even if you have no interest whatever in farming, the
fifth annual Kiwanis Club of Fort Montagu's Agricultural
and Horticultural Fair is the place to be for entertainment
and enlightenment on March 24 and 25.

IN 1925, the Kiwarus
C lub of Sacramento,
California, concerned about
the need for a vocational
guidance programme in high
schools in its area, sponsored
an organisation for young
people at a local school, giving
it the name of Key Club.
As the organisation grew,

success, that the word began to
By 1939, Kiwanis Clubs
throughout the US had
sponsored Key Clubs, and such
was the number of clubs that it
was decided that a national
convention should be held.
Thus was born the Key Club
In 1943, the movement had
so expanded that a national
president was elected and full
recognition by the Kiwanis
organisation was secured.
In 1946, a new constitution
and bylaws were drawn to push
the movement into the
International field, and in that
year the first Key Club outside
of the US was formed in

The Key Club Club of

i GENERAL TENDENCIES: Now you have a
beautiful day and evening to achieve a great
deal that pleases you. Daytime favors the business world,
personal relations, or outside activity, while the evening is fine
for romance and the lighter side of life, such as entertaining,
games, sports and other recreations.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Plan how to handle those
business matters wisely so you add to present income, then
invite congenials to a party in p.m. Make your home more
attractive in some way. It may be too austere now
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Make those new
rea i eshpsn wthdau hcite, but r serve th .m. or inbesd
you like. Communications are fine in the afternoon. Cut down
on IN ex ss(May 21 to June 21) Getting an early start on
financial affairs is wise, then later you can delve into new
outlets that could bring in added income. Set up a better
budget. Improve your residence in some way tonight.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Dress your best
early so you can attend those social functions that please you.
Meet interesting personalities and improve your social
position. Avoid one who is incompetent in many ways.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) You can get an expert to give you
the data you require just at this time, and use it for create'
success. You have a recurring hunch that should be followed.
This can be of great help to you at the right moment.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22> A good day for gregariousness
but make more of social opportunities that come your way.
Drive, walk with care. Look to a good friend for ideas so you
advance more wisely and quickly. Make plans for tomorrow in
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Get into the active world
outside and be very productive where it means the most to
you. Show your finest capabilities and gain the backing of
influential persons. Avoid anything of a dangerous nature.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You have not been able to
get some new ideas rolling well, but now can do so and in a
different fashion that will prove more successful. Those of
different background from yours can be most helpful now.
TSA ITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Get busy with trading
and government matters that have been impossible to handle
before. Evening is best time to make those new arrangements
with mate. Stay on the good and bright side of life.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Sit down in a friendly
fashion with an associate, whether personal or business, and
make new arrangements that will prove more success all. Get
into that civic work that brings you more goodwill an~ fame.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) You have many tasks to
perform and this can prove to be a day of real
accomplishment. First coordinate your efforts better with
fellow workers and avoid running into snags. Relax tonight as
you see fit.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Your happiness comes from
being with those people you like, doing the things that please
you, so get an early start on such. Get that talent working so
you become more successful at it. Don't lose your temper with
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY .. he or she will be
one of those dynamic and wartil young people whose sense of
the romantic is very pronounced who will attract the opposite
sex very easily. Make sure you give good ethical training early
and screen the playmates so your child does not go off the
track, and then there can be much success and happiness in
this chart, provided the apron-strings are cut at the right time.
A good business head here with an original angle that brings
'"The Stars impel, they do not compel." What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!
