Growing Occupations in Country In Clare County, as well as in most other commun- Charge Official In Embezzlement Summerfield Township Treasurer, Mrs. Mary Pearson, 37, has been charged with embezzeling more than $1,000 in township funds. She is scheduled to appear in Circuit Court Wednesday. She was released on her own recognizance after waiving examination in Clare County District Court. Mrs. Pearson was completing the fourth year of a four-year term. All books and records of the township have been confiscated by Clare County Sheriff Raymond Lippold following an order signed by Clare County Prosecuting Attorney Jay Trucks. The books were picked up April 3. Summerfield Township Supervisor Earl Parker said that it is not known at this .time how much money is missing. An audit will be made. Parker said the loss was discovered on April 1 during a meeting. Mrs. Pearson announced her resignation at that time but the board refused to accept the resignation. A bank statement was requested Parker said, but was not forthcoming. The statement was then obtained from the bank. The loss is believed to be covered by a bonding company. Mrs. Pearson is the mother of six children. ities across the country, "non-work" is one of the fastest growing occupations today. Counted in the non- work class in the local area are those able- bodied males over age 14 who are neither working nor looking for work nor going to school. For the most part they are people who have acquired sufficient resources or financial backing to enable them to not- work, many of them at a comparatively early age. Although there are some shirkers among them who rely upon the rest of society to provide ' for them, the great majority are quite different. Because their funds are adequate for their needs they don't have to work and they don't choose to do so. In Clare County, the number of men in this non-work group is estimated, on the basis of statistics from the Department of Labor and the Department of Commerce, at about 1,040. The number in that category in 1960 was 799. Throughout the United States at the present time there are 8.5 million men in this non-work population. ~Of those who are over 65, three' out of four have retired. The others in that age bracket are still working. The proportion of non- workers among those over 65 is 22 percent greater than it was in 1960. In Clare County there are many more men who are over 65 and no longer working than - there were ten years ago. At that time the total was 531. What do they live on? Outside of savings, interest, dividends and other income from investments that they might have, their main source of funds is from government "transfer payments." These include social security benefits, pen- continued on page 11.) Camping Trip Planned For Clare 4th Graders Republicans Set Program Apr. 21 "Mission 70s," a Republican organization program, will be presented to Clare County Republicans April 21, at the Harrison County Court House in Harrison, Don R. Luce, Clare County Chairman, has announced. The meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. "I would like to urge every Republican in the county," the local chairman emphasized, "who is interested in total victory this year to reserve this date and attend this meeting.'' The slide and work book session, co-sponsored by the Republican National Committee and the Republican State Central Committee, covers approaches to party organization techniques at all levels. "We presented this program to some 300 Republican leaders in Lansing in March," said G OP State Chairman William F. McLaughlin, "and it was generally agreed that this was thS finest and most comprehensive organization tool ever developed at the national level." Fourth-grade students from the Clare Elementary School will participate in a week-long outdoor learning program at Mystic Lake Camp this May, in an educational experiment unique to this community. Elementary School Principal Al Schumm and the fourth-grade teachers who planned the campaign trip said similar p ro- grams in other Michigan school systems have proved successful. The five-day trip will begin on Monday, May 18 and end the following Friday. Mystic Lake Camp is located approximately 15 miles west of Clare, to the west of Lake. While at the camp, the estimated 130 fourth- graders will study a curriculum especially suited for teaching in the out- of-doors. Professors and stu dents from Central Michigan University, along with county conservation officials and regular classroom teachers will teach such subjects as conservation, earth science, biology and nature study, and woodcraft and campcraft. Following the • day's classes, the children will participate in various planned recreation activities. Accompanying the children at the camp will be the regular fourth- grade teachers (Mrs. Nancy Letts> Mrs. Patricia Smith, Mrs. Rachel Maloney, and Mrs. Mary Maher): husbands of the teachers; and volunteers including parents and C MU students. A t night, the boys will' sleep in a two-story stockade building, and the girls will stay in camp cabins. All facilities are heated in event of colder weather. ■Planning for the camping venture began early in the school year. Since that time, the fourth- graders have engaged in various fund-raising programs, such as candy and bake sales. The sixth grade students helped out their classmates by donating the proceeds from a special talent_show. So far, the students have raised approximately $600, or half the estimated cost of $1,200 for the trip. Mrs. Letts reports the response has been enthusiastic from the students themselves and those volunteering to help the program. Any individuals or clubs desiring to contribute to this learning adventure with t either food- or money donations can contact one of the four teachers or the elementary school. > *-*,, 11 i* ** "t '* '* v -■•*_«V^"
