Miss Sherry Ratliff Marries
In Baptist Church Ceremony
Tell It to the Judge
President Eisenhower has called a meeting for organization of the
National Youth Development Council a series of committees that
meets every ten years and conducts a study and survey of Ameri
can youth, their problems, the services available to them, and their
needs The council is a widespread affair, consisting of committees
on national state, and county levels, who are charged with making
a thorough survey of the situations confronting young people on
all levels It is a ‘chain of command" type organization. County com
mittee« make their own surveys and report to state organizations,
who in turn compile the results of county findings and make their
reports to the national organizaation
Such an organization is needed in l.lano. and quickly, in order
to present l.lano County's phase of the picture and to compile
data that would be highly beneficial on a local level to parents,
school authorities and juvenile officers
There are two stumbling blocks in the project The survey
requires some ten local committees of about eight members each,
and a time limit has been set at September 15 when county reports
must be turned in to the State organization.
.Judge I: 1’ M I’illiams has asked for opinions from Llano
County people on the advisability of attempting to organize the
large number of committees anil conduct an extensive survey in a
short time And he particularly would welcome any public spirited
volunteers who are willing to help to head the organization, to
take charge of comrnittc. s. or to serve with them
Admittedly, it will he difficult to accomplish this by the dead
line but county officials have indicated that the job will be
attempted if public interest is shown None who have studied the
program doubt its value
It is for Llano County people to say—whether or not they want
th*s survey and .tro willing to aid and support it
So tell it to the judge'
