It Ever wonder why some people have what it takes to get ahead in spite of what seem to be insurmountable odds? Marion Kennedy of Phoenix, Arizona, is such a man. Employed as a crane operator, he was plagued by arthritis, a condition which normally would have forced him to leave his job and go on the welfare rolls. Being a negro, with only 4 years of formal schooling, Kennedy was doubly handicapped. To gether, these suggested a not bright future for a proud man with five dependents. With his wife’s encourage ment, Kennedy took their small savings and enrolled in a course in Radio & TV Serv icing from International Cor respondence School, Scran ton, Pennsylvania.
