How docs it feel to be a governor? How much responsibility is involved in the operation of a government? The answers to these and many other questions were discovered by the young adults who attended Illinois Girls' State and Premier Boys' State. Last summer hundreds of ambitious girls and boys spent an action packed week at these citizenship training programs sponsored annually by the American Legion. Girls’ State is held annually at Mac Murray College in Jacksonville, and Boys' State is held at Fairgrounds in Springfield. Here the citizens of tomorrow learned the governmental processes and saw them in action. They elected officials and established city, county and state units of government. Courts were set up, lawyers chosen, and school was attended by the junior citizens as the week progressed. An active program of sports rb bon beat- and recreation provided a stimulating
change of routine, and the opportunity to make new friends.
To attend Girls' State and Boys' State is an honor and a privilege and 'only those applicants best qualified arc accepted. This one week of citizenship training is definitely a worthwhile experience and an opportunity to become better acquainted with the processes of our government.
Ambitious Harlem High School girls interested in a nursing career were provided with a vivid and exciting picture of this profession through participation and study of each aspect of nursing.
Highlighting an activity filled year were tours to local hospitals and nursing homes, informative lectures on nursing schools, demonstrations of fundamental nursing procedures, and illustrative movies on first aid.
As the year progressed, activities were carefully planned by the sponsor of F.N.A., Mrs. Mar)’ Miller. Monthly programs were scheduled to maintain a high interest in the program and keep each meeting new and different. Elected officers of the club were Pat Jackson, President; Betty Ris, Vice-president; and Sandy Jcp-son, Secretary.
F.N.A. helped the girls become better equipped to meet the challenge of their chosen profession and live up to the high standards of nursing
