C. decided that she very much wanted to join the Peace Corps. So, as a special present to herself she mailed in an application form. As a result, right after graduating from Bennett College in Greensboro the following June, she was on her way to teach school in The Gambia, West Africa as one of ACTION'S Peace Corps volunteers. The Peace Corps is the overseas volunteer branch of ACTION. There are about 7,600 Peace Corps volunteers serving in 61 developing countries. Brenda, daughter Of Mr. and Mrs. Lemond Park of 1560 Springbrook Drive, Rocky Mount, says that being accepted into the Peace Corps and going to teach in Africa was fulfilling a dream she had had for a long time. For her first assignment she was sent to Pakalindmg, a village of 800 in the upper region of the Gambia River. There she worked as a science teacher at the Pakalinding Junior Secondary School. In addition, she was the physical education teacher for girls and a guidance counselor. Females were an obvious minority at the school Out of 160 students only 17 were girls. Brenda was the only femal on the staff, which brought up a special problem: "Whenever we had snacks at school," she recalled, "since I was a woman I was expected to cook all the food in addition to doing my regular schoolwork. I voiced my opinion that it should be a shared responsibility since I, too was a full-time teacher. Only after many discussions of the matter did the men reluctantly settle for a rompijmise," But, on the whole, Brenda did not encounter many problems or have to deal to a great extent with cultural shock. "There was no real cultural shock because during Peace Corps training I was close to the Gambian support staff. I visited their families and got oriented to the Gambian society before I ever went up-river. When I arrived there was very little adjusting I had to do to my new environment" Chief Executive Hakes Speech At Dinner Meet nuAOci un r r Pusnla who know the history of hicher education, for blacks in North Carolina, and know the storv of Esther and Mor as it is recorded in the B r that the stand Governor James E.

This position was formulated in a resolution passed by delegates to the Association's 64th Annual Convention in Indianapolis.

Jordan, Jr., Executive Director, National Urban League, said today. Mr. Jordan's complete statement follows: "The Administration had an opportunity to give the nation a badly needed comprehensive housing program. Instead, it produced a watered down non-program. The Congress is now our last resort. Although the Administration is partially lifting the moratorium on Section 286 it is on a severly limited basis, for less than enough to meet demand. The Administration talks about a urogram of direct cash assistance but It's not to be instituted until 1975. "In addition, it is not clear that the Administration will insist upon counseling as an adjunct to the program and, without consoling, it is doomed to failure. Worst of all, we have enough experience with housing programs generally to know that speculators will find some way to 'rip off direct cash assistance just as they have, 'ripped off other programs. "In the final analysis, since the proposal effectively scuttles our national goal of 26 million new units and six million subsidized units over a ton year period, low income families will receive less than previously contemplated if the Administration's housing formula Is implemented.
