Many people shy away from be coming involved with problems of other people. Danny Cook of Boone does not shy away and for his ef forts is receiving national recogni- Cook, a freshman at Gardner- Webb College, has been saddened by the heartbreak that birth de fects bring to a family since his ele mentary school days when he first became aware of the problem. As a sixth grader Cook became involved with the March of Dimes and since then has become a youth leader in the organization. During his junior and senior years in high school he served as the Blue Ridge council chairman for six counties in Western North Carolina. The summer of 1973 he was appointed as the Western North Carolina chairman over the March of Dimes’ Teen Action Pro gram (TAP) and College Action Program (CAP). As the Western North Carolina youth chairman. Cook attended the March of Dimes Convention in Boulder, Colorado this past summer where the trend to his na tional recognition began. While at the convention, he and Tammy Martin, a delegate from Louisiana, sang a song which he had written about Kathy Garver, the national youth chairman, for the March of Dimes. Miss Garver, better known as Sissy on the television program. Family Affair, had served the or ganization for six years. Cook com posed the song in two days. He was asked to write another song. Recently the organization adopted a new youth symbol. It was felt by the national leaders that a theme song was needed to amplify the meaning of the March “I now declare you aU American citizens” are the words that made Wednesday, November 7 a red letter day in the life of the family of a former officer in the Nationalist Chinese Army. Chit-Fu Chang, a mathematics professor at Gardner- Webb College, along with his wife and three children received their citizenship papers in Asheville. The trip to citizenship for the Changs began when Professor Chang, then Captain Change, was an officer in the Nationalist Chi nese Army of Chang Kai Shek. Professor Chang fled the on- rushing Communist for Taiwan in 1949 where he stayed 10 years be fore coming to America. Professor Chang arrived in America to stay in January 1966 and in August of 1967 his family joined him in Boiling Springs. With all of the Chang family on Ameri can soil the first hurdle was crossed by applying for permanent resi dence. Finally, after living in America for the required five years and taking numerous tests, their long journey ended when they were de- of Dimes symbol. Cook was con tacted by Mrs. Louise Roy, the di rector of youth activities for the national foundation, to compose a theme song for the national organi- Cook wrote “Moving Moun tains” which has been adopted na tionally as the March of Dimes youth theme song. Cook has many responsibilities in the national organization. He helps coordinate youth programs for the state. He makes appear ances throughout the state speaking to civic organizations and schools on the role of the March of Despite a heavy academic load at Gardner-Webb, Cook wants to work with high schools in the area and let them know about the March of Dimes. He also hopes to hold a symposium on the March of Dimes at Gardner-Webb. He spoke recently on the organi zation’s activities to a statewide youth symposium. “The March of Dimes is an edu cational and fund raising organi zation that works to combat birth defects,” said Cook. “The March of Dimes serves the public by pro viding funds for research, offers medical services, provides profes sional education and public health education and offers valuable com munity services. Now that polio has almost been eliminated the ef forts of the organization are aimed toward birth defects. “After seeing kids mentally and physically defective and seeing what the March of Dimes was doing to combat this I wanted to become more involved. The more I saw the more I wanted to do. I hope to make these problems the center of my life’s work.” clared American citizens by Fede ral Judge Woodrow Jones, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina. Judge Jones, a member of Gardner- Webb’s Board of Trustees along with the federal court clerk, Toliver Davis, also a G.W. trustee, heartily congratulated the Changs following the courts dismissal. “Freedom is a word not to be taken lightly” said Professor Chang. “Once you have been on the other side of freedom then you can really appreciate it. I sometimes feel that too many Americans take the many freedoms they have for granted.” Most immigrants upon arriving in America settle in the big cities but the Changs wanted a more peaceful, settled environment. Pro fessor Chang believes that Cleve land County and Gardner-Webb had a lot to do with his family’s deep appreciation for America. “You’ve heard the saying ‘America love it or leave it’ well, we love it and never want to leave it. We thank God that we are now American citizens.” THE PILOT Editor Bidgie Buchanan Sports Editor Carroll Davis News Editor Bud Thomas Cartoonist Steve Johns Photographers Garry Cloer, Wayne Wike Staff Lori Starnes, Charlotte Meyer, Donna Pressley, Chapie Chapman Advisor Mr. Bill Boyd Published by students of Gardner-Webb College, Boiling Springs, North Carolina 28017.
