A war memorial to two gold star
soldiers provided the space and
inspiration for the Jackson Me-
morial Camp for Children, whose
director is Miss Ruth Harris, of
the Women's Physical Education
After the loss of their sons in
World War II, J. Sterling Wick-
wire and George M. Carter fur-
nished funds from insurance to
establish the camp for the under-
privileged children of Jackson. t
Several departments of the Uni-
versity were tied into the pro-
gram when the camp began oper-
ation last summer. Most numerous!
on the staff were students and
faculty of the physical educationE
A medical student acted as cook,
a forestry student asanature coun-
sellor and an architecture student
as arts and crafts assistant.
THE NEED for Jackson Me-
morial Camp was found to be very
great when it was set up. Namest
of 764 children from Jackson, be-t
tween the ages of 5 and 12, were1
submitted and checked. A com-
mittee of professional business-i

Upon entering this camp, each
child receives clothing, bedding,
toothbrush and comb. This is
intended to eliminate envy,
since each child's possessions
are the same as everyone else's.
The children receive some relig-
ious training and instruction re-
garding the American flag. In ad-
dition, there is a regular' camp
program, including waterfront ac-
tivities, arts and crafts, nature
study, games and music.
DURING EACH of four two-
week periods, 40 to 43 boys and
girls are at camp, free from all
emotional strain and unpleasant
home associations.
Each child learns, among his
experiences in working and
playing with others, to make his
bed, sweep, wash dishes and set
tables. All of the children had
problems at home.
One was frail and shy and used
to severe discipline; others came
to the camp from juvenile homes.
Many of the latter group went to
orphanages instead, after attend-
ing the camp.
